PGA DraftKings DFS Tournament picks for the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge, taking place May 27 to May 30th at the Colonial Golf Course
Welcome all, I’m back with more PGA DraftKings DFS tournament picks. This time it’s for the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge being played at Colonial Golf Course. After shockingly picking the winner and runner-up two weeks ago at the Wells Fargo, I’ve been struggling a bit. Hopefully I can turn things around here with the CSC.
Last year’s Charles Schwab Challenge winner was Daniel Berger, and Kevin Na won in 2019. Justin Rose in 2018, Kevin Kisner in 2017 and Jordan Spieth in 2016. Phil Mickelson is a two-time winner here (2000 & 2008) along with Zach Johnson (2010 & 2012).
For anyone new to these, you’ll quickly notice I strongly rely on course history (when available). Probably too much, but for the most part, it works for me. Also, these are tournament picks but it’s tough predicting ownership. Especially with the top players, but I try. If anyone ever has any questions or comments, leave them below, or you can hit me up on Twitter. Now let’s do this!
Charles Schwab Challenge Top DraftKings Tournament Picks
Patrick Reed (DK $10,300)
Over Reed’s last six events, he missed two cuts and has two top 10 finishes. That includes a 6th at Wells Fargo and 8th at The Masters. He’s priced on DK between a bunch of players I believe will have higher ownership- Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Colin Morikawa, defending champ Daniel Berger, Abraham Ancer, Tony Finau, etc. Reed finished T7 at this event last year.
Ryan Palmer ($8,600)
Palmer hasn’t been playing well, he’s coming off a missed cut at the PGA Championship and has finished outside of the top 20 in each of has last four events. So his ownership shouldn’t be very high. He’s had some great results here, including T5 in 2014, T3 in 2016 & T6 in 2019.
Emiliano Grillo ($7,900)
Grillo is inconsistent, which could be great for tournaments. He’s missed four of his last eleven cuts, but also has four top 15’s over that time, including two top 10’s and a runner-up at RBC Heritage. Before missing last years cut, he made four straight here, including T19 in 2019 and a 3rd place finish in 2018.
Peter Uihlein ($7,500)
Uihlein along with Rich Werenski finished 3rd at the Zurich Classic. Other than that, he’s really struggled in PGA events this year. This one is based on the fact that he’s been good here recently, finishing T14 last year and T13 in 2019. Also his ownership should be very low.
I mentioned two-time winner at this event Zach Johnson above. He also has three top ten finishes here since those wins, including a 3rd in 2013. Some other players I like for tourneys: Zalatoris, Scheffler, Na, Kirk, Dahmen, Poston and Piercy.
Disclaimer Thing- I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right.
