Expected Cut-Line At Hamilton


Hamilton Golf and Country Club

7,084 - Par 70 - Greens Bentgrass/Poa

Located in Ancaster, Ontario, renowned English architect Harry Colt designed 18 of the current 27 holes in 1914, with Robbie Robinson addingthe additionalnine in 1974. Naturally,only 18of thoselocations will be usedthis week for the PGA Tour's return to Hamilton Golf and Country Club. Nonetheless, the facility has additional question marks that need to be answered after Martin Ebert recently performed a restoration that cost 11.5 million dollars to restore the course closer towhat Colt hadenvisioned in 1914.

When we look back at what this course possessed in 2019 when we last saw it in the rotation, you got this tight, strategic test off the tee that diminished driving accuracy by over 7% versus a standard tour stop. The one minor change we will get this go-around will be the increase from 6,832 yards to 7,074 yards. However, we are still talking about one of the shorter venues on tour by PGA Tour standards, which is where Rory McIlroy's runaway victory when he posted a 22-under score and won by seven shots might not tell the complete story of the challenge that the layout possesses for the field because of the inferior yardage total.

Ebert rebuilt all 27 greens to include your classic Bentgrass/Poa split. He also added new tees and modernized bunkers that will keep the challenge that the facility had five years ago but do so in a fashion that plays better for today's game regarding positioning. Undulation will be a critical component for a green complex that expanded in size to 6,000 feet. That is closer to the PGA Tour average and may add a little less around-the-green impact than we got in the last iteration at this track, but Idon't want that notion to minimize just how challenging and consequential it is for all players to be able to salvage a score when they do miss a green in regulation.

DraftKings PGA DFS Lineup Picks for The RBC Canadian Open (11)

Youare going to find the top three players in this tournament at the very top of my model. I am okay with anyone who wants to start a build with any of those three options.

Ownership will play the critical decider since DraftKings made it easy enough to get to Rory McIlroy, but all three choices are in play and should be considered.I would assume that factor of how easy it is to get to McIlroy has him go off the board at over 40%, but those are questions that we can answer over the next 24-48 hours when we get more clarity.

My early lean is that Tommy Fleetwood becomes the choice who is more contrarian than the other two. I had Fleetwood graded inside the top 10 when running my seven main categories (the second-most in this field), which places the Englishman in a nice contrarian spot as everyone potentially rushes elsewhere.

Theegala is going to be my preferred outright target, although Fleetwood currently carries that mantle for DFS until something changes in the projections.

Mid-Priced DraftKings DFS Players


DraftKings PGA DFS Lineup Picks for The RBC Canadian Open (12)

The $9,000range was relatively straightforwardin my model.I had three values compared to their price and three overpriced commodities. You can see who those players are in the image above.

I don'thavemany gripes in Alex Noren's profile outside of ownership. There is a reason he has been one of the steadier golfers in the world during the 2024 season. However, I will take a contrarian stance in this article to make this piece different from everything you might read elsewhere.

My model liked Sam Burns' early leverage. It isn't the safe outlook you get from a name such as Noren, but if the ownership doesn't trend in his direction, there is a lot to like about his chances.. My model placed him seventh when I combined the heightened proximity ranges at Hamilton with the entire aggregated outlook for short-game returns, adding to the additional strong expectations for a golfer who also saw a vast increase when faced with short Par 70 courses.

If Noren isn't as popular as expected, you can very easily add him to the mix here when talking about my favorite play.

One of my favorite things about Tom Kim is that while he has started to turn things around after a slow start to the season, the market has yet to catch up to his recent surge.

Kim's 50/1 opening outright price and $8,600 price tag will leave a lot of meat on the bone to consider for a golfer who placed fourth in my model for expected scoring at Hamilton Golf and Country Club. I thought Kim should havebeen nearly $1,000 more expensive.

Ben Griffin landed as one 15 players this week inside the top 60 of my model for all seven categories that I ran from a numerical perspective. That joined Davis Thompson and Taylor Pendrith as the only three players from this section to accomplish the feat.

Grffin graded eighth in my model for Weighted Scrambling, ninth for Weighted Scoring and seventh for Recent Production when recalculating the data to fit Hamilton Golf and Country Club from a Strokes Gained Total handicap.

$6,000 Options to Consider

DraftKings PGA DFS Lineup Picks for The RBC Canadian Open (15)

I am curious to see where Kyoung-Hoon Lee and Mac Meissner land with their ownership.

My model had Lee as one of my favorite head-to-head targets, evidenced by the early grab I took of him over Sam Stevens. It also placed Meissner as the second-best outright target when everything opened on Monday. We will get to the top name in the section below.

I prefer Meissner for GPP contests because of that high upside profile if the ownership stays low enough.

$5,000 Options to Consider

DraftKings PGA DFS Lineup Picks for The RBC Canadian Open (16)

Chandler Phillips has been all-or-nothing lately, posting two missed cuts and two top 12s in his past six starts.

Iam going tobet on the upside of his profile, which ranked first in this field from 125-150 yards and eighth for Weighted Strokes Gained Total.

Favorite Play Each Section (Monday):

$10,000+ - Tommy Fleetwood
$9,000+ - Sam Burns
$8,000+ - Tom Kim
$7,000+ - Ben Griffin
$6,000+ - Mac Meissner
$5,000+ - Chandler Phillips
