After a week-long break, we are back to the Fall Swing. The second-tier golfers are playing extremely meaningful golf to position themselves for the 2024 PGA Tour Season. We head to Mexico for the WWT Championship at Diamante. This is a first-time stop on the PGA Tour, as this event was held at El Camaleón in prior years. Let’s check out some DFS plays by price range.
This could provide more of a test than other Mexico events have in the past. A 7,363-yard, par-72 does not scream difficult on paper, but this course is dramatically influenced by wind. El Cardonal sits on the Southwestern Mexico coast, which gets little to no rain on a yearly basis. Windy and firm will surely provide a challenge to the golfers this week.
2023 WWT Championship: Best DFS Plays by Range
10K and Above
Cam Young $10,900
I wonder what the narrative around Cam Young will be heading into the season. Long and straight off the tee is the best tool a golfer can possess in this day and age, and that is what Cam Young will do. His off-the-tee prowess alone will give him every avenue to succeed on a golf course like this.
The firmer and windier it gets will only benefit Cam this week. He struggles in pure birdie fests, and I do not believe we will see that here. Plug in Cam Young at the top of your WWT Championship at Diamante DFS Lineups.
Chris Kirk $9,100
Moderately long, not overly difficult, feels like a Chris Kirk spot to me. We have not seen him play since the BMW Championship in August, but it was solid when he was finishing up his season. Kirk has never missed a cut in Mexico and has a top ten as well. Kirk provides real upside as well, as he is a PGA Tour winner this calendar year.
Justin Suh $8,900
I am a believer in Justin Suh. Last event, we had a 54 hole leader sweat with a Justin Suh 100/1 ticket. Clearly, it did not end well, but he is turning a corner. Suh has proven to be an elite putter, but the ball striking has been some of the best it has ever been this fall swing. The talent of Suh is off the charts, and it will come for him. Not ready to jump off the Suh train yet, he is a great click for your WWT Championship at Diamante DFS Lineups.
Ben Griffin $7,900
Ben Griffin showed he has what it takes to contend a few times in his career. Inches away from winning the Sanderson just a few weeks ago and leading on the back nine in Bermuda last year. That Bermuda event had a very similar field and course to this one.
He has not looked great the two weeks following his narrow win, but the week to regroup in the States should treat him well. In three trips to Mexico, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico, Griffin has made every cut. He is a safe square with some upside in this event.
Will Gordon $7,000
Will Gordon is coming off his best finish since June, and he is heading back to an event he finished third at last year. Yes, I know it was at a different golf course, but the vibes should be heading in the right direction in the Gordon camp. Like Young, Will Gordon has the gift of long and straight off-the-tee, which will be a great advantage here. Lock in Willy G to your lineups this week.
