2019 AT&T Byron Nelson Sleeper Picks

AT and T Byron Nelson Sleeper PicksAfter last week’s PGA Tour star studded field for the Wells Fargo the AT&T Byron Nelson will have nothing but sleeper picks for you to choose from since most of the big names are taking a week off to rest up for the second major of the year - the 2019 PGA Championship.

Headlining the Byron Nelson tournament are Brooks Koepka, Jimmy Walker, Alex Noren and Charley Hoffman. After that, the name recognition drops off considerably unless you play DFS golf games week after week and are used to looking at the bottom of the list for sleeper picks for tournaments. Just an FYI - Any field that has ex Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo in it is usually a pretty weak field. If you are looking for sleeper picks for the AT&T Byron Nelson all you have to do is throw a dart at the field and chances are you’ve found one…What you need to do is find the sleepers that will help you win your daily fantasy golf lineups this week.

AT&T Byron Nelson Golf Course

Trinity Forest Golf Club par 71 - 7,558 yards

2018 was the first year the tournament was held at the Trinity Forest Golf Club and the scores showed that even for a Par 71 course that there are lots of scoring chances to go around. The cut line was at -4 and the winning score was -23 with most of the rest of the leaderboard being around the -20 mark.

There are only three Par 5’s on the course ranging from 550 yards to 630 yards so Par 4 scoring is the key stat for the week as you will want to find the golfers that take advantage of the Par 4’s and get the birdie chances. That leads into another often overlooked stat - Par Breakers. A course like Trinity Forest gives up a lot of birdies and eagles and the Par Breakers stat is a combination of both stats and who does well at it. Find the low cost sleepers that are ranked high on the Par Breakers list on the PGA Tour site.

At 7558 yards this is a longer course and you’ll want to find the guys that will drive it long to set up for a shorter second short to give them a chance for a birdie or an eagle if they can reach the green in two on the par 5’s. In fact the course boasts the largest green in North America with the 3rd and 11th hole sharing the green for golfers.

Although named Trinity Forest the course looks more like an Open Championship links course with wide open fairways and large greens to aim at. Accuracy stats aren’t as focussed on for the Byron Nelson since it’s harder to get into trouble if you miss off the tee. Ball striking will be a premium for the week where golfers may need to get creative to take advantage of the landscape and set themselves up for those birdie chances.

Look at putting stats namely strokes gained putting which determines which golfers pick up the most strokes due to making putts from various distances and the number of putts taken. With bigger greens to aim at you will have a lot of longer putts to contend with.

Weather could be a factor this week as the Texas winds can kick up and with very few trees to protect the ball you may want to take a peek at what the weatherman has to say to see if there is an advantage for the morning/afternoon tee off times.

2019 AT&T Byron Nelson Sleeper Picks

Adam Schenk - Schenk has play pretty well in 2019 and has two Top 15 finishes in his last 3 events. He is a low cost at DFS sites like DraftKings so he is a good sleeper to pick up at a low cost to round out a lineup.

Rory Sabbatini - Sabbatini has quietly had a really productive PGA Tour season making 12/15 cuts and has 3 Top 20's in a row. He finished in 13th last year at the AT&T Byron Nelson and although he isn't priced liek a sleeper pick this week, most won't have him on their radar and his ownership should be low.
