The PGA Tour stays in Florida this week for the Players Championship 2023 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach. As one of the most prestigious events on the PGA Tour schedule, ‘Golf’s fifth major’ will feature a star-studded field. Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy are listed as co-favorites at 17-2 in the latest Players Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Scottie Scheffler (10-1), Patrick Cantlay (19-1), Max Homa (19-1), Justin Thomas (19-1), and Xander Schauffele (25-1) are also among the top contenders in the Players Championship field. The total tournament purse is $25 million, with $4.5 million going to the winner.
Before locking in your own 2023 Players Championship One and Done picks, you NEED to see what daily fantasy sports pro and SportsLine golf betting expert Mike McClure has to say.
The One and Done format is growing in popularity. It has several noticeable similarities to NFL Survivor pools, with the main difference being entries are not eliminated with a bad week. Players pick one golfer per week and earn points based on their selected golfer’s prize money for that tournament. Golfers can only be used once per season, and the point format makes nailing majors and big money tournaments critical.
McClure is a DFS legend with nearly $2 million in career winnings, and he’s been RED-HOT on his PGA picks dating back to the PGA Tour restart in June of 2020. McClure uses his proprietary simulation model to analyze the field and crush his golf picks.
McClure has nailed plenty of One and Done picks, including Luke List at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. At the Farmers Insurance Open, McClure’s top One and Done pick, Max Homa, outlasted the entire field to take home his sixth career PGA Tour victory and $1.566 million. At the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, McClure backed 48-1 long shot Taylor Pendrith in One and Done pools, and he came through for $271,100. At the WM Phoenix Open, McClure nailed Scheffler winning the tournament, taking home $3.6 million! At the Genesis Invitational, he was all over Max Homa, who finished in second place and took home $2.18 million! In last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, McClure took 35-1 longshot Jason Day, who finished in 10th place for $485,000.
Now, McClure has set his sights on the 2023 Players Championship and just revealed his optimal One and Done picks. They are a must-see for any player looking for an edge in their One and Done pool.
We can tell you that one of McClure’s favorite Players Championship One and Done picks is Viktor Hovland, who is listed at 27-1 to win the tournament at Caesars. Hovland, the No. 11 player in the world, has four top-20 finishes in five starts in 2023, and is coming off a 10th place finish against an elite field at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Hovland is a proven winner on the PGA Tour and McClure thinks he could fly under the radar this week at TPC Sawgrass, making him an excellent One and Done pick at the 2023 Players Championship.
McClure is also targeting another One and Done sleeper who’s listed at 36-1 in the 2023 Players Championship odds and is primed to blow up this week, giving you a HUGE return! Picks like these could be the difference between winning your One and Done pool or going home with nothing. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in your pick.
