Coming off a great week it was a bit of a brutal week for my standards last week. Just not my week. Hoge was trash, Hadley was Chesson and Cink did he usual make the cut which was a bright spot. Mccarthy was a great call because we knew he couldn’t keep that putting going. Don’t want to waste too much time on last week. I feel I had some of the right guys, but they just didn’t pan out. I would play Chesson again as I have in the past. 

Let’s get this week going!

Ruby #1: Sebastian Munoz ($6900)– A fan favorite of the people that follow this article. He was part of our great run in Mexico. The boy can score on draft kings. He has gained strokes T2G his last 3 tournaments. He’s hitting the ball extremely well right now and actually putting decent as well. We know putting can fluctuate but it’s a good sign he has been putting fairly decent. He ranks top 25 in my model last 12,8, and 4 rounds. He has been consistently improving as well during that period. He is top 40 over each of the last 100 rounds as well so he has long term success statistically for what I’m looking for. At his price if he makes the cut it is a positive and can allow you to be more flexible up top. 

Ruby #2: Matt NeSmith($6800)– So NeSmith is quickly turning into one of my favorite players on tour. He popped when I looked at th4 beginning of the year statistics from the KFT last year. He was #1 in GIR gained last year. I did use that stat this week so of course Ill be heavy on Nesmith this week. Gained over 6 stokes on approach and tee to green last week and lost almost 3 strokes putting. He corrects that slightly and we are in business this week. The hole in one last week helped those stats, but he still played well. He has gained OTT last 4 events which can be useful here. He ranks top 20 in my model last 24 rounds and every round since then. He has been playing very well making 8 straight cuts and I look for that continue here. 

Ruby #3 Mark Hubbard ($6500)– Hubbard has actually played fairly well this year. Since October Houston Open he has 2 top 10s and an 11th place just last week.  He has gained strokes OTT each of the last 4 weeks on tour. He is a streaky putter and when he’s hot hes really hot. He gained over 4 strokes on approach last week and close to 7 strokes T2G. He has played here 1 time before missing the cut but that was back in 2016 and his form was not in good shape the way it is right now. If he makes the cut that is extreme value for a guy $6500.

Coal: Cameron Champ ($6900)– Champ was absolutely dreadful at the Genesis. Right now looking like around 7% ownership which I feel is about 3 times what I would expect it to be the way he has played lately. He didn’t do 1 thing nice at Genesis. His form before that was actually decent so could have been just an off week but he’s just too inconsistent for me to play him. Yes, I know this coming from the guy who has played Chesson multiple weeks. Champ just isn’t my cup of tea I guess.

Good Luck this week!
