2021 Waste Management Phoenix Open Sleeper Picks

Waste Management Phoenix Open Sleeper PicksOne of the most fun events for fans and players on the PGA Tour is the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Record crowds spill on to the golf course and most end up at the 16th hole stadium course also known as the Coliseum to cheer or jeer players on each of their shots…the weekend can be so much fun to watch that making DraftKings Sleeper Picks for the WM Phoenix Open is almost secondary in importance.

For those that haven’t seen pictures of the crowds, the TPC Scottsdale Stadium course has an actual stadium built around the 16th hole. Players that hit the green are cheered as heroes, players that miss the green are booed mercilessly and players that hit a hole in one are celebrated like kings. Some golfers tolerate it, some play up to the crowd but it is a lot of fun and worth checking out.

Update for 2021 - There will only be about 10,000 tickets sold to fans for this year's tournament. What is usally an event that attracts about 750,000 people to it will have a different atmosphere than in all other years.

The Waste Management Phoenix Open goes back to being played on just one course (a change from the last two events) but even though it’s still a cut line of 70 golfers, only a field of 130 will start the tournament which narrows things down a bit when making fantasy golf picks.

Expert Draftkings Sleeper Picks for the WM Phoenix Open

Waste Management Phoenix Open Golf Course

TPC Scottsdale par 71 - 7,261 yards

TPC Scottsdale has a few tough holes but generally is a pretty easy course. Since 1999 the winner hasn’t shot lower than -14 with Phil shooting a -28 in 2013. Golfers that hit it long or short are equal here as the winner is generally who plays their iron shots the best.

Hitting the greens with the second shot is the key to winning the Waste Management Phoenix Open with most past winners ranking high in stats like Greens in Regulation percentage and Strokes Gained Teen to Green.

Hole 16 with the Stadium and frat party surroundings will be one test followed by the drivable Par 4 17th hole at only 332 yards in which some golfers will have to club down from the driver instead of risking flying it over the green.

Look for fantasy golf picks and WM Phoenix Open Sleeper Picks that overall have a good approach game and tee to green stats. Putting stats aren’t as big this week but obviously taking advantage of eagle opportunities and birdie tries will be a difference maker. Look at PGA Tour stats to see who excels at Birdie or Better percentage (BOB%).

2021 Waste Management Phoenix Open Sleeper Picks

Martin Laird - In 12 starts at the Waste Management, Laird has cashed nine times including four top 10 finishes. For a DFS lineup he makes a solid sleeper pick if your intention is just to find someone to make a cut and show well this week.

Rickie Fowler - Fowler isn’t your typical sleeper pick but given how he’s played in the last year he would be an under the radar pick this week. Rickie has a good history at the WM Phoenix Open including a win a couple of years ago and although he won’t be a low salary cap cost this week he’s worth building your DFS lineups around. If you really want to try to make some money this week then take advantage of Fowler’s odds to win and place a bet on him to win outright here.

Byeong Hun An - Like Fowler, he’s not a low cost sleeper and is a better bet to win the WM Phoenix Open but An has played well lately and is 4-4 at the TPC Scottsdale with no finish worse than 23rd. He is a solid mid-range salary cap cost this week that has a good shot at winning or take the good odds on him this week and make him an outright pick to win. We took him last year to win at 90-1 and he finished in 9th after a weak Sunday finish. Even if you don’t pick him to win, you could bet on him to finish in the Top 10 or Top 15 at decent odds too!
