FANTEAM DAILY FANTASY GOLF – AT&T BYRON NELSON DAY 2

NEW COURSE RECORD AS THE MAN FROM COLUMBIA DOMINATES DAY 1

Sebastian Munoz put on a dominant display in round one as he gained over 10 strokes relative to the field in strokes gained total. Munoz round of 60 was a new course record having cleared Sam Burns 62 from 2021.

While the round was impressive and Munoz looks like he will be hard to  beat there’s still a ton of golf to be played. With the likes of Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth lurking the Colombian will certainly need to keep his foot on the gas if he is to win his second PGA tour title.

This tournament has always been low scoring so if golfers are not making birdies/eagles then they are going to find it tough going. Unless the wind gets up 59 is in real play this week so an exciting few days of golf await us.

FanTeam have created a Day 2 AT&T Byron Nelson contest for us to enjoy. €2 buy-in with €500 prize pool. Contests start 13th May, 12.50pm BST 13.50pm CET

Day 2 satellite contests are running side by side with the regular contest and users can enter for €3 and be in with a chance of winning tickets to the PGA Championship monster contest next week!

ROUND 1 STATS

STROKES GAINED ON APPROACH 

A big chunk of shots from yesterday come from over 180 yards and with the  birdie fest we saw the players this week will have to be dialed in with the irons as they look to stick it in close if they are going to score this week

  1. Sebastian Munoz
  2. Tyler Duncan
  3. Hdeki Matsuyama
  4. KH Lee
  5. James Hahn

STROKES GAINED OFF THE TEE 

TPC Craig Ranch features massive fairways so while it’s hard to get in trouble off the tee around this place you can certainly gain an advantage by being long. With it being a low scoring week golfers will need to take advantage of the par 5’s so gaining strokes from the tee is a real advantage.

  1. Aaron Wise
  2. Jordan Spieth
  3. Peter Malnati 
  4. Stephen Jaeger
  5. Francesco Molinari

STROKES GAINED PUTTING

This is a stat that I don’t tend to look at as it can be very hit or miss, however this tournament has turned into the putting contest I expected. With this in mind I have a fairly heavy weight on Bent-grass putting. Not because putting is difficult here, but because you need to putt really well to have any shot of winning.

  1. Seamus Power
  2. Matthias Schwab
  3. Peter Malnati
  4. Kyle Wilshire
  5. Sebastian Munoz

WEATHER

Another glorious day at TPC Craig Ranch awaits us! The perfect scoring conditions again as the leaders look to edge closer to the 20 under number.
