After a few weeks of topping the buzz charts, Justin Thomas finally came through with a victory at the 2019 BMW Championship. JT’s long-awaited victory vaulted him to the top of the FedEx Cup standings and he is now the betting favorite and most-expensive DFS golfer at this weekend’s Tour Championship.

Course history narratives are back in play this week as the 2018-19 PGA Tour season wraps up at East Lake in Atlanta, Georgia.

East Lake usually requires longer approach shots, so Strokes Gained: Approach is once again the most discussed stat according to FanShare Sports. Driving stats are also being scrutinized by the daily fantasy industry with the perception that East Lake’s biggest defense is its thick Bermuda rough.
