Lee is a great putter 24th in strokes gained , and very good on the approach 50th in strokes gained: His weaknesses are his chipping and gaining strokes off the tee. With extremely wide fairways I think that one of those two weaknesses will be irrelevant.

His irons and putter are hot right now so I'll continue to go with Danny Lee, especially at a course he's had success at.

Holmes scares me, especially with how inconsistent he's been this year. But this is a ball strikers track where the big guys can smash their drivers every hole into wedge range. S Open was clearly a ball-striking course with extremely wide fairways like this one, and J. B finished 12th there. TPC Sawgrass is also a ball striking type of course and J.

His course history is solid as well, making the Top 30 in four out of five tries. I expect him to have wedge after wedge into greens this week. If he can stay away from the big numbers he should contend on the weekend.

The one-time college basketball player can bomb it as well. Woodland gains about a stroke per round on the field from tee-to green 25th. He's 44th in strokes gained: His weakest ability is putting, but he's actually fairly average at rolling them in. His driving accuracy has been spotty, which is precisely why he's a good pick this week. The wide fairways should be welcoming to players who've struggled with accuracy off the tee.

Woodland skipped last week to spend time with his wife and newborn son. He should be ready to get back to bombing drivers and spinning some wedges in tight.

He's 11th in strokes gained: I'm not sure what the DraftKings experts seem to know that we don't, but I'll take my chances on Cink. New grasses were introduced to the greens, fairways and bunkers faces, while trees were selectively thinned to reintroduce unbelievable views and sight lines not seen for decades. Playing under 7, yards with massive fairways and at elevation 2, feet above sea level allows the field to crack drivers from the tee box with relatively no risk.

On the whole, players hit almost 68 percent of fairways at the Greenbrier, well above the TOUR average of 61 percent. So, not only does it have the easiest fairway to hit on the schedule, it also sports the lowest GIR proximity to hole of any event after the swing-season, too.

For comparable courses, the Safeway Open has seen a lot of crossover in the past. At some tournaments, it can be as high as six times more impactful. Beyond that, Birdies or Better rate, especially on Par 4s likely will differentiate the field. The combination of SG: T2G and Par 4s gained will prove to be the most telling numbers.
