PGA DraftKings DFS Tournament picks for the 2021 PGA AT&T Byron Nelson, taking place May 13 thru May 16th at TPC Craig Ranch
Welcome all, I’m back with more PGA DraftKings DFS Tournament picks. This time it’s for the 2021 PGA AT&T Byron Nelson. I had an amazing week with my picks last time out for the Wells Fargo Championship. My top picks finished winner (McIlroy) & runner-up (Ancer), with neither being very highly owned. Hopefully I can come somewhat close to that this week with the Byron Nelson.
This a new course, so event history probably means nothing, but I’m still going to use it.
This event was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. Kang Sung-hoon won here in 2019, Aaron Wise in 2018 and Billy Horschel in 2017. Sergia Garcia is a two-time winner here with the latest coming in 2016. And a bunch of others won before that, now do this!
PGA 2021 AT&T Byron Nelson Top DraftKings Tournament Picks
Brooks Koepka (DK $9,900)
This is a gutsy one considering Koepka has only played once since having knee surgery, where he missed the cut at The Masters. I figure that should keep his ownership down, and he’s got good history here. He finished runner-up at this event in 2016 & 4th in 2018. He also just got bumped out of the World Top 10 rankings after Rory’s win. So I’m hoping he returns healthy and pissed off, then destroys the field.
Jason Day ($8,900)
Day has missed back-to-back cuts and only has two top 10 finish’s all season. I’m expecting his ownership to be somewhat low and he has great history here. He won in 2010 and finished runner-up in 2017.
Peter Uihlein ($7,600)
Uihlein only has two top 25’s in seven PGA events this season. But one of them was a few weeks ago at the Zurich Classic, where he finished 3rd along with Rich Werenski. He finished T21 here in 2018 and T5 in 2019.
Rory Sabbatini ($6,800)
Rory has been struggling after starting the year off strong with back-to-back top 15’s in January. He’s only made 3 out of 9 cuts since then, including missing his last two. So his ownership should be pretty low but he also has great history here. He won the event in 2009, more recently he finished T13 in 2018 and T5 in 2019.
Some others I like for tourneys: Will Zalatoris, Scottie Scheffler, Charl Schwartzel & Sebastian Munoz.
