Welcome to Playing the Tips! 

Each week this will be the one-stop resource to soak in all the picks from our fantasy staffers at Rotoworld.com. 

Page 1 is going to look at Daily Fantasy Sports picks (FanDuel, Yahoo, and DraftKings).

Page 2 will have a look at One-and-Done options as well as PGATOUR.com's fantasy game. 

Josh Culp



Webb Simpson (11,800): He's a top-15 machine at Sea Island so I'm fine overlooking a six-week layoff. 

Rory Sabbatini (9,900): Not the greatest track record at this event but he's played great golf in 2019 and ups his game on bermudagrass.

Adam Hadwin (10,100): Looking to shake off the rust ahead of the Presidents Cup, I like his chances to get in four rounds and likely play his way into contention. 

Doc Redman (8,500): The youngster has some pop but more importantly he hits A TON of fairways. I like that mold at Sea Island where the bermuda rough makes it tougher to score.  

Kevin Streelman (9,500): A less-than-driver layout with bermudagrass greens? Sounds like a good recipe for Streelman to pop for a top 25. 

Denny McCarthy (10,000): If you read my early-season stat article then you may remember that I pointed out his steady ball-striking this fall. That's usually the only thing holding him back so I want to strike now before he cools off. 



Webb Simpson (11,600) - He's collected top 15s in four of his seven starts here. He was also T12 at the midpoint in another before he had to back out for personal reasons. A great course for Simpson to gain some confidence ahead of the Presidents Cup. 

Harry Higgs (7,700) - Cited fatigue for a mini slump this fall but he's rejuvenated and it showed with a close call at the Bermuda Championship and T33 last week. 

J.T. Poston (8,400) - The Sea Island local won the Wyndham, another event played on a short course with bermuda greens. He also has a top 10 on his Harbour Town resume so this type of track fits his game. 

Rory Sabbatini (7,900) - Making his sixth start at this event, he owns a pair of top 30s here but 2019 Sabbatini has shown a lot of consistency and could post a new personal best here  (T22 in 2015 edition). 

Doc Redman (6,900) - Missed the cut last week but he's gained strokes over the field in seven of his last 10 starts. 

Kevin Streelman (7,400) - He finished top 10 in his 2011 tourney debut and also has a T17 on his resume (5 total starts).

Brian Gay (32): Playing well this fall and has a pair of top 5s over his last four starts here. 

Billy Horschel (45): Not a regular at this event but he's gone T20, T43, P2 in three trips. That playoff loss came just three years ago, his most recent start here. 

Bo Hoag (21): He's a fairways and greens machine so it's no shock to see him playing well in the fall on courses that don't demand power. That should serve him well for another week as he tries to rattle off three straight top 20s on short courses with grainy greens. 

Harris English (36): He's gained 10 or more strokes over the field in four of his last five starts. En fuego and now he gets a home game at Sea Island Golf Club. 

Doc Redman (32): He's hit more fairways than the field average in nine straight starts and landed more greens per round than the field in seven straight. 

Dylan Frittelli (34): One of the top ball-strikers in the field. That should set up loads of scoring chances for him this week on a pair of courses that reward good iron play.
