The fantasy golf rankings model for the Genesis Open has added another new feature. Last week, there was the addition of “Current Form” data, and this week includes a “Prestige Rank” for each golfer. Our DFS rankings expert, Taylor @Sgrignoli3 has combined Official World Golf Ranking with Vegas Odds to create the “Prestige Rank” for this specific tournament.

If you remember from last week’s model, the “Current Form” rank weight is derived from the average number of total strokes gained per event played this season. is used to help develop these weekly fantasy golf rankings. Taylor and I discuss which statistical categories we feel are most important for the week’s tournament then those stats are weighted accordingly.

The course stats formula 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 statistics for the Genesis Open include:

  • Strokes Gained: Approach
  • Par 4 Scoring: 450-500 yards
  • Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
  • Birdie or Better Gained
  • Strokes Gained: Putting (Poa)
  • Bogey Avoidance

The “PAS Power Index” is generated by calculating and combining the following: course statistics (weighted at 40%), *NEW* recent form (weighted at 30%), course history (weighted at 15%) and *NEW” prestige rank (weighted at 15%).

Several players may not have course history so their course history weight percentage has been shifted to current form.
