FANTEAM DAILY FANTASY GOLF – MEXICO OPEN DAY 3 PICKS AND TEAM REVEAL

Had a disappointing week on the main event with missed cuts? Then FanTeam has just the thing, with their day 3 golf contest. 

The pre tournament favourite Jon Rahm took control on day 2 with a 5 under round giving the Spaniard a 2 shot advantage heading into the weekend. His closest competitor is Alex Smalley who himself had a 5 under day as he goes in search of his first PGA Tour win. 

The leaderboard is nicely bunched up behind them with former PGA Tour winners in the hunt including Cameron Champ and Patrick Reed who will look to make a charge on moving day. One thing for sure: it should be a great weekend of golf.

FanTeam have created a Day 3 Mexico Open contest for us to enjoy. €2 buy-in with €600 prize pool. Contests start 30 April, 15.53BST 16.53CET.

ROUND 2 STATS

STROKES GAINED ON APPROACH 

I feel like I talk about this every week right now and here we are again. It is crucial to be gaining shots on approach here as you will have a huge advantage on the field and the golfers dropping shots because they are finding those deep green side bunkers.

  1. Matt Wallace
  2. David Lipsky
  3. Austin Smotherman
  4. Kevin Na
  5. Tony Finau

STROKES GAINED TEE TO GREEN 

You need a good all round game around this golf course due to the length of it and the deep bunkers that guard the greens. Being top 5 in this category come the end of the week should see you near the top of the leaderboard.

  1. Tony Finau
  2. Alex Smalley
  3. Kevin Na
  4. Jon Rahm
  5. Charles Howell

DRIVING DISTANCE

The Mexico Open is played on the very long Vidanta resort course. This course has been reduced from a par 73 to a par 71 for this tournament  so being long off the tee is a huge advantage, especially on the drivable par 4. 

  1. Hayden Buckley
  2. Cameron Champ
  3. Jon Rahm
  4. Charles Howell
  5. Doug Ghim

I would take a look at tee times before selecting your teams tomorrow, as this course played much easier in the morning on day one and seemed to play easier in the afternoon on day 2 so monitor the weather.

TEAM REVEAL

Although I will be entering multiple entries in the golf  cash games, this is one of my lineups for the Mexico open Saturday contest on FanTeam.

As you can see, the lineup is built around the player stats from round 2 above.
