As we head to the final day of the Workday Charity Open, the top three on the leaderboard are the future of the PGA Tour in Justin Thomas, Viktor Hovland, and Collin Morikawa. But can the new guard hold up as we head into Sunday pressure?
Weather might be an issue as it’s expected to be a 78-degree day in Dublin, Ohio tomorrow, but with a 60% chance of thunderstorms. Who can dominate under unusual conditions on a wet course could be the winner
We make some picks for Round 4 below. Enter your lineups here.
Viktor Hovland ($9,500)
Sits in second place, and has gone 69-67-66 so far this week, but it’s how he does it that helps fantasy players. Even if you concede a bogey or two, it’s worth it for players that can post the maximum red numbers. Hovland had eight birdies and two bogeys in Round 3, an eagle, seven birdies, and three bogeys in Round 2, and six birdies with three bogeys in Round 1. The shapes around the numbers on the scorecard are what’s important here.
MJ Daffue ($6,000)
You usually need a bargain on your roster, so go with the South African that posted a five birdies and an eagle on a bogey-free round 65 to be the lowest in the field during Round 3. He’s a -9 which is seven shots off the pace, but that should give him plenty of incentive to fire at flags to try and get back in it. 73-69-65 is a good trend at this course so far.
Xander Schauffele ($9,800)
Draw a line through his 73 on Saturday, as the San Diego State Aztec is fourth on tour in DFS points posted per round this year at 82.3. He can go low in a hurry, and with a -8 score so far he’ll have reason to let it all hang out on Sunday. The 69 and 66 he shot on Thursday and Saturday respectively are more indicative of his talent, and he played well on the moist track. His length and ball-striking will be helpful here.
