The PGA Tour continues its Florida swing this week with the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort
(Copperhead Course). Below is a breakdown of how DFS expert, Taylor @Sgrignoli3, has created his rankings formula to produce high quality player projections, along with the course stats being focused on for Valspar…and, of course, this week’s top 36 (yes, 36!) fantasy golf rankings.
Fantasy golf rankings model breakdown
The “Course Stats Rank” incorporates a wide range of player statistics, each individually weighted. This range includes the past 4, 8, 12, 24, 50 and 100 rounds played.
This week’s weighted course statistics for the Valspar Championship include:
- Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
- Strokes Gained: Approach
- Birdies or Better Gained
- Bogey Avoidance
- Proximity from 175-200 yards
“Current Form Rank” is derived from the average number of Strokes Gained: Total per tournament played this season.
“Course History Rank” is derived from the average number of Strokes Gained: Total per year played at this event/course. *Several players may not have course history so their course history weight percentage has been shifted to current form.
The newly added “Prestige Rank” column was back-tested and has consistently shown positive results. “Prestige Rank” is derived from a combination of current Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) and Vegas odds to win the week’s event.
The “PAS Power Index” is generated by calculating and combining the categories mentioned above: course stats (weighted at 45%), *NEW* current form (weighted at 25%), course history (weighted at 10%) and *NEW” prestige rank (weighted at 20%).
