Round 4 of the Travelers Championship tees off Sunday morning and DraftKings has once again loaded up a massive $500K GPP with 100K up top for the Final Round Finale tournament. Let’s dive into a quick breakdown.
Abraham Ancer ($9,800) has been knocking on the door for awhile now with two runner-up finishes this year, including last week at the RBC Heritage. Ancer ranks 12th in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (SG: T2G) and fifth in SG: Ball Striking (BS). His putter has been slightly above average through the first three rounds and if it heats up on Sunday, Abraham will inherit the world… well at least the world of PGA Tour Winners.
Speaking of players ready to win (again), Dustin Johnson ($9,300) came out swinging on Saturday with a bogey free 61 behind nine birdies. DJ ranks 2nd in SG: T2G and 5th in SG: BS. Johnson’s best putting surface by a mile is Poa, and we are on Poa this week.
Viktor Hovland ($9,200) ranks second this week in both SG: BS and SG: Approach (APP). The Hov has cooled off a bit since his opening round 63 but if his 50th-ranked putter can drain some on Sunday, another 63 is well within reach for the young stud.
Sergio Garcia ($8,600) has been a beast, ranking fourth in SG: Off The Tee (OTT) this week, but hasn’t been able to dial in the irons or the putter. Garcia has actually lost 3.7 strokes with the flat-stick this week. If Sergio can get his irons dialed in and leave himself some shorter putts, he could be a low-owned mover on Sunday.
Kevin Streelman ($8,000) shot 66 each of the first two days and backed that up with a 9-birdie round on Saturday that rocketed him up the leaderboard. Streels APP (11th) and BS (9th) numbers have been excellent, and his putter — gaining 4.3 strokes putting — is obviously hot.
Tyler Duncan ($7,200) quietly ranks third this week with a massive 7.4 SG: BS and is tied for sixth in SG: T2G. Per usual, T Dunc can’t roll in a putt to save his life. He’s likely to go overlooked on Sunday event though he piled up seven birdies here in Thursday’s opening round.
- Brendon Todd ($8,200) is playing out of his skull this week and won consecutive PGA Tour Events in November of 2019, so he knows how to win. He leads the field by a pretty good margin in both SG: T2G and SG: BS.
- Sungjae Im ($9,100) should be low-owned on Sunday thanks to his high-price tag, his below average SG: Approach (APP) numbers, and the fact that he’s 15 shots back. Sungjae is a stoneface killer on Sundays though and seeing him bag a bogey-free six-under round with a birdie streak and lots of DK points is not that far-fetched.
- Harold Varner III ($7,100) has his approach game locked in, ranking fifth this week, as he’s 13th in SG: BS. HV3 hasn’t been good around or on the greens though and if he could clean one of those two parts of his game up tomorrow, a birdie run isn’t out of the question.
