First off I want to say thank you to The Sports Degens for giving me the opportunity to post my Rubies. They have requested the article since my departure from my previous group. This article will always be free from now on and that’s how I want it to be and have always wanted it that way. This is an article to share with everyone. Please enjoy and give the Always Pressing PGA DFS Podcast a listen. Bubba and Jesse are awesome and do it for the love of sports not a subscription. @Bdentrek and @DFSgolfgods on twitter. 

The Rubies will be me picking 3 guys I think are very good value. Usually I live in the 6k range. In smaller field events it might differ or if I just want to give a lower 7k guy I will do it. They won’t always hit but it is who I like. 

Ruby #1: Tyler Duncan ($6400)– He’s an awful putter, and we all know that. His last appearance was a win at the RSM classic. He’s previous 2 appearance he finished 48th at the OHL and 18th at the Barracuda in November. He was playing very solid golf during the swing season. He gained 6.9 strokes T2G at the RSM classic where he won. He somehow gained 3.4 strokes putting his last tournament. He has gained strokes in 3 straight tournaments overall. His last 12 rounds he ranks 9th in my model for the week. At 6400 (min price almost) in a no cut event seems like super value to me. His last 50 rounds he ranks 8th in GIR gained. I think that is important this week as they are huge greens and wide-open fairways. 

Ruby #2: Sebastian Munoz  ($7100)– This guy was a but of a monster during the swing season. HE took down one of my favorite golfers in a playoff in Sungjae Im at the Sanderson Farms. What I love about Munoz is he’s a good putter so I can rely on that for the most part. He has lost SG on T2G 1 time in his last 6 tournaments where the stat is tracked. In 3 of those, he was over 6 SG. That’s very good. That is what I am looking for this week from the bottom of the barrel guys. Last 24 rounds he ranks 5th in my model. For $7100 I’ll take that. His lowest ranking last 100 rounds is 16ht in my rankings. A finish like that would be very beneficial given his price. Give m the Outright and FRL and DK play of Munoz. 

Ruby #3: Keith Mitchell ($7000)– We have seen bombers who can’t putt win here. Dustin Johnson comes to mind. Its so wide open that the bombers do have an advantage. It is quite long also on some holes. 17 can be very long. It takes 2 long shots and 2 good ones to be able to score. Mitchell hasn’t been fantastic lately but he did get a lot better at the RSM, finishing 14th. In tournaments where stats were compiled, Mitchell gained strokes T2G in 5 of last 6 dating back to the Open championship. We know he’s not the best putter but I think these greens can be good for him. I like him in Hawaii in general. JT has won the Sony Open and the Honda. Mitchell won the Honda so I think he has the game to win in Hawaii as well. I think he can compete at the very least. A top 10 at his price would be nice. 

Coal: Lanto Griffin ($6500)– I don’t understand the early ownership projections on him. Maybe I’m wrong, but makes no sense to me. Ranks near the bottom ¼ of my model over evert round going back 100 rounds. He’s a bad par 5 scorer and struggles compared to the rest of the field on approach and ball striking. I do not think that is a good recipe for this course. He’s not particularly good in GIR as well ranking 20th over last 50 rounds. Like I said I don’t see the appeal in him, but you do what you want, I’m not playing him.

Plays:

 Munoz FRL: 33-1 

Mitchell FRL: 40-1 

Duncan FRL: 50-1 

Munoz 66-1

Duncan 150-1

Mitchell 100-1

As well all know by now I’ll have Rahm as well but at 4-1 I’ll parlay it with something else. 

1st parlay is Rahm/Chiefs to win SB 27.5-1
