PGA DraftKings DFS picks for the 2021 PGA Wells Fargo Championship, taking place May 6 thru May 9th at the Quail Hollow Golf Course
Welcome all, I’m back with more PGA DraftKings DFS Tournament picks. This time it’s for the 2021 PGA Wells Fargo Championship. I had a decent week with my picks last time out for the Valspar Championship. All four made the cut and my top pick Oosthuizen finished T8, you can check those at the link.
This event was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. Max Homa won here in 2019, Jason Day in 2018 and Brian Harman in 2017. James Hahn won in 2016 and two-time winner Rory McIlroy won in 2015 (also 2010). And a bunch of others won before that, now let’s get to it!
PGA Wells Fargo Championship Top DraftKings Tournament Picks
Rory McIlroy (DK $10,000)
Rory returns this week for the first time since missing the cut at The Masters. He also missed the cut at The Players, so I’m thinking his ownership should be lower than usual. He finished top 10 in back-to-back events before The Masters and has been incredible here. He won this tourney by seven strokes in 2015 and four strokes in 2010. He finished top 10 here on five occasions over the last eight years. Including runner-up in 2012, T4 in 2016 and T8 in 2019.
Abraham Ancer ($8,900)
On DraftKings this week, Ancer is between defending champ Max Homa, Joaquin Niemann who hasn’t missed a cut all season. Sungjae Im, who always seems to have pretty high ownership, plus recent winners of this event, Brian Harman and Jason Day. So I think his ownership will be somewhat low just based on all that. He missed the cut here in 2018 and I couldn’t find any other recent history. But he’s been playing fantastic, finishing top 26 in each of his last six events, including a 5th place finish last week at Valspar.
Francesco Molinari ($7,500)
Molinari is another making his first appearance since The Masters, where he finished T52. He also missed two cuts before that, so I’m not expecting his ownership to be very high. He does have three top 10’s this season and finished top 25 in each of his last three trips here.
Pat Perez ($7,000)
Perez has made four of his last five cuts, including T29 last week at Valspar. He only has one top 10 this season, but he finished T8 here in 2019 and runner-up in 2017.
Here’s a few other players I like for tourneys: Brendan Steele, Emiliano Grillo, Keith Mitchell and Jhonattan Vegas.
