The Euro tour makes its return to Draftkings for the second week in a row which is a real treat after a long layoff of a shortage of overseas golf action. Course history is limited again with only two years of relevant data to use when analyzing the field this week. Below is a list of golfers with hot and cold course history and recent form to use when building lineups this week. As always good luck!
Hot Course History:
Soren Kjeldsen ($10,600) – Kjeldsen is a great option this week when you take into account his second and fifteenth place finishes here. But he also could potentially qualify for the hot recent form section of this article. With a decent statistical fit and a price that I can’t complain about, Kjeldsen is definitely in consideration.
Bradley Dredge ($9,700) – Bradley Dredge is easily the golfer with the hottest course history and he’s been a staple in my lineups for a large chunk of the year. His second and sixth place finish in his last two appearances at this event leave me feeling very comfortable with rostering Dredge in cash and GPP formats.
Cold Course History:
Andy Sullivan ($10,400) – With only two years’ worth of data we’ll have to read between the lines a bit here, but Sullivan missed the cut in his only relevant data point which is enough to raise my eyebrows as a golfer who is typically very consistent. I’m not sure it’s enough to keep me entirely off of Sullivan but it certainly has me thinking.
Mark Foster ($6,600) – Mark Foster may have peaked your interest with his eleventh place finish at the Czech Masters, but in two tries at this event he missed the cut and finished sixty-first. At this price there may still be some value and I’m not sure it’s enough to keep me off of Foster but it’s worth noting for sure.
Hot Recent Form:
Thomas Pieters ($11,500) – I hope you were paying attention to last week’s article, because Pieters is going to make his second straight appearance in the hot recent form section as he validated his status as “hot” by improving upon his fourth place finish at the Olympics with a second place finish at the Czech masters last week.
John Carlsson ($8,000) – Carlsson is in an interesting spot for cash with his six straight made cuts and recent eighth place finish. His course history isn’t great but at only $8,000 I think he has a good possibility of making the cut again this week since he’s coming in hot.
Cold Recent Form:
Jamie Donaldson ($8,500) – I’ve definitely had Donaldson in a serious number of lineups throughout the season in both Euro and PGA slates, but I will be jumping off the train until further notice. With back to back missed cuts and no finish better than forty second in his five missed cuts in his last seven events, Jamie Donaldson is ice cold.
Kristoffer Broberg ($7,900) – You may recognize this guy if you have been a long time listener of the Fantasy Golf Degenerates podcast that I host. Broberg is a serious talent and definitely has some upside in the right spots, but with five missed cuts in seven tries and no finish better than sixty-fourth, Broberg will not be finding his way into any of my lineups any time soon, especially at this price.
