What a weekend in Scottsdale, and BDE Brooks Koepka returned to the winner’s circle. It was a wild Sunday, per usual at the WMPO as Xander, Spieth, Scheffler, and others fell back, and Brooks seized the day with a heck of a round capped off with a chip-in eagle on 17. Once again, all five guys had players make the cut for OAD, and Ruvy had the big win with Xander’s second-place finish. Now the tour returns to California for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, yet there are no amateurs this year. The field is still 156 golfers, but my oh my, is it the weakest field ever for this event. There will only be two courses used with no amateurs and a cut after round 2 instead of round 3. Let’s see who the guys like this week with the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am OAD picks.
|Last Week Money||$138,700.00||$649,700.00||$64,422.00||$177,025.00||$104,425.00|
|Last Week Pick||Justin Thomas||Xander Schauffele||Bubba Watson||Louis Oosthuizen||Will Zalatoris|
|This Week Pick||Paul Casey||Jordan Spieth||Paul Casey||Cameron Davis||Henrik Norlander|
Jesse (@DFSGolfGods) – Henrik Norlander
I’m in Florida for the week, and Fantasy Labs on mobile is poop. I was going to write some stuff, but it is what it is this week. Give me Henrik Norlander as he should fair well in the cold, so he’s the pick.

Well, it looks like the lack of amateurs playing at Pebble is spilling over to the Professionals as many have already WD’d. It’s sad to see the field as crummy as it is with an iconic course on display. Blame Saudi Arabia, blame the schedule, or blame Cali for not allowing fans…I’ll pick a guy I’m not a big fan of, Paul Casey. Best of luck!
Ruvy (@MichaelRuvolo) – Jordan Spieth
Well 2nd place two weeks in a row, but what do I expect with Finau and Xander? I feel that might be the best result I could hope for. So why not go with another dude who hasn’t won in what feels like forever! This week I’ll go to Jordan Spieth. He gained 7.8 strokes on approach last week and over four putting. He now heads to one of his most comfortable places on tour, where he has won before. This field isn’t great, but Spieth might be able to get rid of some demons this week.
Rob (@AllDayEvery365) – Cameron Davis
Well, Louis was in contention on Sunday after a dynamite Saturday and couldn’t finish strong playing himself out of the tourney in the final six holes. Still, we cash a decent check and keep a solid 2021 season going. This week, there are three items of criteria for me this week: is the person breathing? Do they care about playing? Are they playing four straight weeks, including the Genesis and WGC? If the answers are yes, yes, no, we’re in business. Cam Davis, come on down! This is just a dart at this point. He’s unreal off the tee and gained 5+ strokes in his approach the last two tournaments. He’s not going to be near his 30/1 number again this year so let’s hit it now.

I know it is a broken record, but this field is absolute garbage. Sure I will watch and play plenty of DFS, but that does not mean it is a bad fie; it more means I may have a problem. With that being said, I am not going to get cute with my pick this week. I have got a bit cute the last few weeks. My guys have made the cut but not the best of paydays. This week at Pebble, I will go to the elite in the field and roll with Paul Casey. He is three for three in made cuts at Pebble, including a second and an eighth. He has made three straight cuts, including a 12th, 1st, and 8th over those three events. Let’s go, Casey, do me, proud big man.
