2018 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open Sleepers Picks

Shriners Hospitals for Children Open Sleeper PicksThe PGA Tour flies back across the globe back to the US for the Shriners Hospital for Children’s Open. Played at the TPC Summerlin course in Las Vegas Nevada the Shriners Open has been played at TPC Summerlin since 2004 and is one of the easiest courses on the PGA Tour.

The return to the US also opens up fantasy golf lineups to some of the newer players on the PGA Tour like the Web.com graduates that didn’t get to play over in the Asian events. The opportunity for sleeper picks is more wide open for the Shriners Open tournament.

Shriners Hospitals for Children Open Course

TPC Summerlin

The TPC Summerlin isn’t a terribly long course at just over 7200 yards but it plays even shorter in the humidity of the Nevada desert and because the course sits about 2700 feet above sea level. Even short hitters hit it farther this week so targeting players with top driving distance isn’t the stat to focus on. The greens are big targets so look for golfers with high percentages in GIR (the last 10 winners averaged about 82% GIR) but more importantly look at the par 4 scoring stats of all the sleepers you are targeting. Most of the winners in the history of the Shriners were in the top 5 par four scoring for the week.

Other stats to look at is par 5 scoring which are very reachable holes for eagle and birdie tries and look for high putting percentages to take advantage of the long birdie or eagle putts.

Remember, we are back to standard tournaments for a bit which means back to finding players to make the cut and play throughout the weekend to keep you scoring all weekend long. To win a top money contest like the Fantasy Draft Contest you will need all six of your 7 picks to at least make the cut and then score you points throughout the weekend.

2018 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks

WHEE KIM - Kim isn’t highly known in DFS fantasy golf but he’s had a solid start to the 2019 PGA Tour season and took a week off to set himself up for the Shriners Open. Last year Kim came in 2nd at the Shriners and has made the cut in each if his previous appearances. Kim isn’t going to light up the course and beat out the favorites like Spieth and Fowler but he should make a solid Shriners Open Sleeper Pick that will make the cut and possibly even contend.

RYAN MOORE - Like Whee Kim above, Ryan Moore isn’t going to light up TPC Summerlin this week and win (at least he probably won’t win) but he has a solid record playing at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and should be a low cost salary cap sleeper pick at all DFS sites like FantasyDraft.com (Don’t forget to use FantasyDraft Promo Code REALMONEY when you sign up to get a FREE Contest Entry). Moore should make the cut and be your 6th or 7th fantasy pick to fill in you lineup this week and you should get 4 rounds out of him.
