The PGA Tour remains in the Midwest for the second straight week with the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic, played at Detroit Golf Club. Only two top-15 ranked golfers are taking part in this week’s event – Patrick Cantlay and Will Zalatoris – meaning your PGA DFS rosters will need to incorporate plenty of mid-level or low-cost options. Maybe someone like Kevin Kisner could consider your DFS Rocket Mortgage Classic 2022 strategy, as he is the only golfer on the course to land two top 10s in the brief history of this tournament.
Kisner would cost you $9,100 on DraftKings and $10,700 on FanDuel to sign up for the Rocket Mortgage Classic 2022. He may have missed the cut in five of his last eight tournaments, but the history of the course may be more important than recent results. So what other potential PGA DFS picks are flying under the radar? Before you lock in your PGA DFS picks for the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic, check out the latest daily fantasy golf picks, tips and player pool from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.
McClure is a DFS pro with over $2 million in career earnings, and he’s been scorching hot on his picks on the PGA Tour this season. McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates each tournament 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as statistical trends, past results and current form. This allows him to find the best PGA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he only shares on SportsLine. They are a must have for any PGA DFS player.
Earlier this month at the John Deere Classic, McClure included JT Poston among his top PGA DFS picks on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Poston recorded his second career PGA Tour victory, with a score of 21 under par. Everyone who included him in their lineups was well on his way to a profitable weekend.
Additionally, McClure’s model has won nearly $10,000 on his best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament. This same model also managed eight major tournaments entering the weekend. Everyone who followed him saw massive returns.
Now, McClure has set his sights on the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic and revealed his advice, strategy and optimal PGA DFS player pool. Head over to SportsLine now to see its daily top fantasy golf picks for the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic.
2022 PGA Rocket Mortgage Classic DFS Pick
One of McClure’s top PGA DFS picks for the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic is Patrick Cantlay at $10,700 on DraftKings and $12,000 on FanDuel. The defending FedEx Cup champion will be in the thick of it to defend his crown as he places sixth in the FedEx Cup standings, in addition to fourth in the Official World Golf Rankings. It will be his first trip to the Detroit Golf Club, but Cantlay has been lighting up the courses left and right for the past three months. Seven of his last eight tournaments have resulted in top-15 finishes and four of them top-5 finishes.
Putting will be very important on this course and Cantlay is among the best in this respect, and in many other respects for that matter. He ranks 19th in putt average (.521), 16th in putt percentage (42.52%) and his efficiency on the greens allowed him to post the fourth best birdie average (4.48) in tour. All three winners in Rocket Mortgage Classic history have shot at least 18 under par, so someone who can consistently beat par like Cantlay will be the perfect cornerstone for your PGA DFS lineups.
McClure’s optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes training Chris Kirk ($7,800 on DraftKings, $10,000 on FanDuel). Kirk has beaten par in seven of his eight career rounds at Detroit Golf Club and placed a solid 12th at this tournament last year. He’s also had a great run in recent events with a pair of top 10s in his last six events. Kirk, who ranked 94th in the world in May, reached his current position of No. 57 in the OWGR.
The Georgia alum is one of the best ball hitters on tour, his short game being exceptional. Kirk ranks fourth on the circuit in Strokes Gained: Around the Green (.519) and 18th in Strokes Gained: Total (1.308). His scoring average of 70.233 ranks in the top 20% on the PGA Tour, and since this is one of the weakest fields in recent memory, that scoring average looks even better. Considering the market you can get Kirk at, he’s a bargain for your PGA DFS lineups.
