DraftKings Preview: Masters Tournament | DE24 News
A tradition like no other takes on new meaning this year as the PGA TOUR travels to the Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia. The Masters has been removed from its usual post during the first full week of April due to COVID-19 and has been postponed until this week due to COVID-19. This also means that (apart from changes) there will be two Masters tournaments played in six months. The course is a par 72, measures 7,475 meters and is played on bentgrass greens.

STRATEGY

Augusta National did not see many changes between 1999 and 2006, apart from a few changes. Prior to the 2019 edition of The Masters, the course added 40 yards to the fifth hole, making it a par 4 of just under 500 yards, for a total of six par 4s playing at or above 450 yards. The course has little to no rough and the regular four par 5s, all of which play as the four easiest holes, but Augusta National is far from easy. Golfers start each round on the second hardest hole and finish with the fifth hardest. If that weren’t enough, the 240 yard par 3 hole wouldn’t be an easy task. A 29 percent bogey rate was cast last season, and if you think it will end there, you’re wrong. The next hole is the 495-yard par-4 fifth hole, which had a birdie rate of less than 8 percent and a bogey rate of 25 percent in 2019. Those who pass the tough test this week will join previous winners Tiger Woods (9.100 USD), Patrick Reed (9.200 USD), Danny Willett (7.000 USD), Jordan Spieth (8.200 USD), Bubba Watson (9.000 USD), Adam Scott (8.900 USD) and Phil Mickelson (7.500 US-Dollar).

If you’re hoping to have the million dollar lineup, you need to have all six players on your squad who not only make the cut this week, but also place high. The field consists of only 93 golfers, and the cut will be in the top 50. This is the first time since 2013 that the tournament has changed the cut rules. Augusta National is a place that usually rewards those with experience and course knowledge. There hasn’t been a first winner since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979. The top 5 in Strokes Gained Total since 2015 are Jordan Spieth (8.200 USD), Rory McIlroy (10.200 USD), Justin Rose (7.700 USD), Dustin Johnson (10.000 USD) and Hideki Matsuyama (8.700 USD).

Augusta National also doesn’t allow green reading books, which will be tricky for beginners on these fast, curved greens. The greens will average 13.5 on the stimpmeter and have massive waves where getting close to the correct quadrants is of the utmost importance. The Top 5 in Strokes Gained: Fast bentgrass greens were laid in the last 36 laps Rickie Fowler (8.100 USD), Kevin Na (6.700 USD), Andrew Putnam (6.200 USD), Webb Simpson (9.300 USD) and Kevin Kisner (7.100 US-Dollar).

Along with some course history and a hot putter, they also need to have an elite approach game and a distance to tee this week, especially if the weather is making the course softer. All six golfers in the winning million dollar lineup finished 35th or better in the Strokes Gained Approach in their last 36 rounds towards Augusta. In 2018, all six golfers were among the top 46 in Approach over the same period.

Golfers who have a top-notch game around the green should also work to their advantage. In an ESPN article recently, McIlroy mentioned that “the greens are exactly the same as always (in April). But it just wasn’t cold enough for the fairways that the Bermuda could die. That will make things very interesting about the greens. Chipping becomes a lot more difficult. ”

Price history is more important than others this week, but it shouldn’t overtake your entire process. Patrick Reed lost 50 percent of his last 12 rounds before winning, and both Danny Willet and Jordan Spieth had just one start before their wins.

Dustin Johnson (10.000 US-Dollar)

Johnson was spectacular at Augusta National, ranking fourth in Strokes Gained: Total since 2015. Johnson led the field in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee last week in Houston and was Top 15 in putting, scoring 3.5 strokes with the flatstick. Johnson’s Wedges were also elite, finishing sixth in the last 36 laps near 100-125 meters. His mix of power with the driver and precision with his wedges makes him a competitor in Augusta every year. Aside from missing The Masters 2017 with an injury, Johnson finished no worse than tenth, finishing second at the Vivint Houston Open last week, winning just over 7.5 tee-to-green over the weekend.

Jason Day (8.400 USD)

A 1-over on Sunday mitigated a hot start in Houston, where Day finished seventh, taking 7.44 tee-to-green. He was able to take just under two hits this week by approach, which are exactly the positive points. After losing punches in five tournaments in a row, people want to see him arrive at Augusta National. The day ranks 20th in laying bentgrass greens and third in Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green in the last 50 laps. Augusta’s daily record since 2015 was no worse than T28’s and should be in a great position to win his first green jacket.

Rickie Fowler ($ 8.100)

Few were better than Fowler on these bentgrass greens. Sixth in Strokes Gained: Overall, Rickie is always someone to consider next time Augusta National is on the PGA TOUR program. Fowler was twice in the penultimate group here and averaged 71.5 on his starts at The Masters. Barring a missed cut in 2016, Fowler hasn’t gotten any worse than 11th here since 2014. His current shape is not confident. His best result is a 15th place, which comes back in August at the WGC St. Jude Invitational. However, if you give course history in its current form, there are few who do better than Fowler on his favorite course.

Cameron Champ ($ 7.100)

Bryson DeChambeau (11.200 USD) will keep the general public informed of his distance, but don’t forget Champ, who has been second in driving distance to Bryson for the past six months. Champ fights on bentgrass greens but hits his irons well and has approached a total of 8.7 strokes in the last two tournaments. This is Champ’s first appearance at Augusta National, so winning may not be in his earnings spectrum, but he has a good history of late in a major with a tenth place finish at the August PGA championship.

Si Woo Kim ($ 6,800)

Kim plays some of his best golf courses when the stakes are highest. He won THE PLAYERS in 2017, a top 13 result at the PGA championship in August and no worse than a top 25 in the past two years at Augusta National. Kim’s ball stroke has always been great and he’s hitting it well right now. He ranks 24th in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee and 12th in Approach in the last 36 laps. Kim is also an elite on the greens, finishing second in Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green for the past six months.
