PGA DFS Coverage for the FedEx St. Jude Championship

The PGA Tour regular season came to an end last weekend in Greensboro, North Carolina at the Wyndham Championship. Joohyung Kim picked up his first career PGA Tour victory and sits comfortably inside the Top 50 for the FedEx Cup Playoffs. From Scottie Scheffler to Kevin Tway, we’ve got our field of players competing for that $15 million dollar top prize.  

The FedEx St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind plays host to the first of three events in the playoffs. It takes over for Northern Trust but it is not unknown to these PGA Tour professionals. The St. Jude Classic was a regular stop from 1958 to 2018 and TPC Southwind has been the host course since 1989.




The Field: FedEx St. Jude Championship

The 2021-2022 PGA Tour regular season is over and all the big boys are back in the mix to win that $15 million dollar top prize. You’ve got Masters’ champion Scottie Scheffler, Open champion Cameron Smith, PGA Champion Justin Thomas, and U.S. Champion Matthew Fitzpatrick. You’ve also got Rory McIlory — who finished Top 10 in all four majors, Tony Finau who won his last two starts, runner up at the Open and PGA Will Zalatoris and tons of other major champions. You’ve got quality players at fantastic values this weekend like Max Homa, Tyrrell Hatton, Corey Conners, Adam Scott, Mito Pereira, Si Woo Kim, and Cam Davis sitting under $8K.


The Course: TPC Southwind

TPC Southwind measures 7,239 yards, plays as a par-70 and is considered a true test of a golfer. The average winning score at this event is 12.8 under par over the last 12 tournaments at this course. One thing I really like about this course is that it can play to the strengths of multiple players. When you look at the list of past winners, there is no one way to win. The course features water hazards on ten different holes, a lot of balls have landed in the drink over the last 15+ years since the course was remodeled. The greens are very small and difficult to land which means scrambling and short game will be important as well. Ball striking is vital on this course but there are a ton of those in this field. So, the tie breaker will have to come down to putting on this course. 




The Weather: Memphis, Tennessee

The primary concern for the golfers this weekend will be the humidity. Memphis temperatures will be in the upper-80s but humidity levels could get as high as 90 percent. There doesn’t seem to be any rain in the forecast which makes everything better.
