PGA DraftKings DFS picks for the 2021 Palmetto Championship, taking place June 10 to June 13 at Congaree in Gillisonville, South Carolina
Welcome all, hope you’re doing well. I’m back with more PGA DraftKings DFS picks. This time it’s for the 2021 Palmetto Championship at the Congaree Golf Club in South Carolina. After picking both the winner and runner-up a month back at Wells Fargo. I struggled a bit, but came back strong last week.
I picked another winner in Patrick Cantlay at The Memorial. All four picks made the cut with three (Spieth & Streelman) finishing in the top 18. You can see all of my previous picks/columns at the link. Now let’s move on to the Palmetto.
The Palmetto Championship is a one-time replacement for the RBC Canadian Open, due to COVID-19, border issues, etc. If you’ve read my golf stuff, you know I lean heavily (probably too much) on course history. There isn’t any I know of for this course, so this will be a quick one.
Alright, if anyone ever has any questions or comments, leave them below. You can also hit me up on Twitter. Now let’s do this!
Palmetto Championship Top DraftKings Picks
Brooks Koepka (DK $11,100)
I’m basing picks this week solely off recent play and a bit of gut feeling. Pretty much every top DK $ money player is a bit of question mark, due to inconsistent recent play. Koepka is known for majors, he’s coming off just missing another win at the PGA Championship, finishing runner-up. Over his last six events, he has a win and finished runner-up twice.
Alex Noren ($8,900)
Noren has now made six straight cuts and is coming off a T13 at The Memorial. He’s finished top 25 in four of his last five events, and this is a weaker field than all of those.
Rafa Cabrera Bello ($7,800)
After struggling for most of the season, RCB has been playing better recently. He’s made three straight cuts, finishing top 40 at each event, with a T21 at Byron Nelson. Not incredible numbers obviously, but again this is a weak field.
Ben Martin ($7,600)
Martin has made five of his last six cuts. He’s coming off a T26 at Byron Nelson and the week before that, he finished T11 at Wells Fargo. He also recently finished T9 at Corales Puntacana. I’m kind of surprised he’s this cheap.
Notes & Stuff
Normally there would be some quick extra picks and notes here. But without course history and with this field, I got nothing. So have a great day and hopefully you win some money.
I’ve gone back and forth with calling these “tournament picks” or just “picks”. It’s tough (for me at least) predicting ownership for top players. So I’m just going with some of my favorite picks from now on. I’ll mention if it’s a tourney flier or whatever else when needed.
Disclaimer Thing- I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right.
