With the Genesis Invitational in the rearview mirror, the PGA Tour now turns its attention to the WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession Golf Club kicking off this Thursday. In what is shaping up to be a really respectable field, a lot of the world's top players will be vying for this 2021 title.
We have already taken a look at the odds, but now we can examine a few guys to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.
Patrick Reed is the defending champion here, and although it's on a new course this season, Reed is still playing excellent golf coming into the event. In his six events this season, Reed has never finished worse than T-21, which includes a Top-10 finish and a win in his last start at the Farmers Insurance Open. Reed currently ranks No. 8 on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Total and No. 2 in SG: Putting, which could be huge for him on these smaller, tricky greens. He's also No. 3 in scoring average and No. 18 in scoring average.
While not many players have success to point to on this course, Bryson DeChambeau does. Back in 2015, DeChambeau won the 2015 NCAA Championship at The Concession. The small greens can call for precision ball-striking, something DeChambeau has been known for. He currently ranks No. 15 in SG: Approach The Green and No. 18 in SG: Around the Green. Not to mention No. 1 in SG: Tee-To-Green and No. 2 in SG: Total. DeChambeau had all the tools to win here before and his game is once again in a place for him to do it again.
Dustin Johnson continues his excellent play coming into this event. And while he has no history on this course, his strong points this season are lining up with playing well here. He ranks No. 1 on tour in SG: Approach The Green, No. 9 in SG: Around-The-Green, No. 2 Tee-To-Green and No. 3 SG: Total. On top of that, Johnson has played in five events this season on the PGA Tour, and has never finished worse than T-11. He has one win in that time, plus a win on the European Tour at the Saudi Open a couple weeks ago. If Johnson continues this trend, it's hard to imagine him not being in contention for a win come Sunday.
