The sponsor-less Fort Worth Invitational concludes this season’s Texas swing. Colonial Country Club hosts the event which has been around for decades and continues to showcase many of the game’s best.
Known as a plotter’s course, Colonial requires accuracy off the tee, a solid approach game and above average putting. Therefore, for DFS purposes, targeting ball strikers over bombers is the way to go this week.
Check out the breakdown of Taylor’s (@Sgrignoli3) rankings model and this week’s top 30 fantasy golf rankings for the Ft. Worth Invitational.
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 Fort Worth Invitational include:
- Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
- Strokes Gained: Approach
- Birdie or Better Gained
- Strokes Gained: Putting
- Strokes Gained: Par 4s
“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 “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%), current form (weighted at 25%), course history (weighted at 5%), and prestige rank (weighted at 25%).
