As I’ve mentioned in my article yesterday, the cream of the crop on the PGA Tour were invited to play in the WGC-Match Play and everyone else heads to the Dominican Republic for the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship.  Your top priced player on the board is Wyndham Clark.  Throughout the 10K and 9K salaries, you’ve got guys who would typically be in the 7K & 6K range.  We've got players from the Korn Ferry Tour and the European Tour participating this weekend, a lot of whom you don't get to see on a regular basis but they shouldn’t be complaining about spending the week on a tropical island.  

So, let’s take a look at the Corales Golf Club which is a basic stock par 72 that opened in 2010.  The course is long, reaching nearly 7,700 yards, both the par 5s can stretch beyond 620 yards.  The greens are just about 11 feet on the Stimpmeter which doesn’t pose much of a challenge but if you look at the recent winners of this event, they’ve all lit it up on the greens.  The primary rough is cut to around two inches but fairways are accommodating, so long hitters and tee-to-green tacticians both will have success on this course.

We love nicknames like the Bear Trap and the Snake Pit for a three hole stretch, well let me introduce you to “The Devil’s Elbow”.  While those other places are known for their difficulty, these three holes (16, 17, and 18) are known for giving players a chance to win down the stretch.  You need to go low on these holes to have a chance to take home the title.    

We should not have any weather concerns this week, it'll be partly cloudy with temperatures in the low 80s all weekend long. Winds will slightly pick up over the weekend to 10-12 mph, typical island breezes.  There are definitely players who know how to play in these conditions better than others.

We’ve spoken at length about playing DFS with a field like this one.  I recommend you lower down your typical play when you’ve got golfers you can’t trust.  Tons of question marks and lots of inexperience in this field.  When you've got this much uncertainty, I personally don’t want to put much of my hard earned cash down.  


THOMAS DETRY: While he missed the cut at THE PLAYERS, he’s one of the better talents in this field.  He had made the cut in his 13 previous starts.  A former DP World Tour player knows how to play in island conditions.  He has made the cut in each of his two trips to the Dominican.   

BEN MARTIN: It has been a good run for Ben, he’s made four straight cuts against top tier competition.  He has a 5th place and a 13th place over that run.  He has made the cut in all three of his trips with a runner up finish last year and a T9 in 2021.    

NICOLAI HOJHAARD: A regular player on the DP World Tour has not missed a cut this season with three Top 10 finishes.  He did miss the cut in his first trip to this event in 2022, but the form is much better coming into the tournament.    

CAMERON PERCY (One and Done selection): This dude loves playing in March especially when it’s on an island.  Last March, he finished 7th in Puerto Rico and 4th in Punta Cana.  He also finished 8th at this event in 2020.  There are guys who just know how to play on these island courses.
