2018 Corales Punta Cana Resort and Club Championship expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips

Looking for 2018 Corales Punta Cana Resort and Club Championship picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2018 Corales Punta Cana Resort and Club Championship rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

The PGA Tour has two events this week, with the inaugural (at least for the PGA Tour) Corales Punta Cana Resort and Club Championship unfolding at Corales Golf Club in the Dominican Republic. We have 131 players and Tony Romo in the field this week, vying for a two-season exemption and some valuable FedEx Cup points (Romo can't get FedEx Cup points as an amateur).

This event was previously on the Web.com Tour schedule for a year before instantly upgrading to the opposite-field portion of the PGA Tour schedule.

For those new to our weekly picks, we offer our top 10 players for free. GNN Plus members get additional analysis and research otherwise hidden to the general public, and that's in addition to access to a searchable database of PGA Tour results from 2011-present, top-15 PGA Tour trends and season-long DraftKings salary trends. You can try GNN Plus for 24 hours for free!


2018 Corales Punta Cana Resort and Club Championship rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Emiliano Grillo - Really liking what I've seen from Grillo of late, particularly in India and at Bay Hill. He let a big lead get away in Delhi, but I can live with that. He's an elite player in this field.

2. Scott Piercy -- Piercy has quietly strung together a pretty solid year, mixing in a bunch of top-20 finishes. However, he did miss the cut at Bay Hill if you're worried about momentum. He does like tropical events.

3. Chris Wood -- Wood struggled to open the season, but he's been in the money in his last three, and he had a runner-up in Oman, which I think might somewhat be a comparable layout to Corales Golf Club.

4. Patrick Rodgers -- Rodgers has been making cuts all over the place, and he's had some very nice finishes in there, too.

5. Rory Sabbatini -- Sabbatini hasn't missed a cut this year, and he played very well in his two starts at Honda (T-17) and Valspar (T-5).

6. Paul Dunne -- Dunner should be an elite player in this field, though he's had a bunch of middling finishes so far this season. An Irish guy in the wind shouldn't be bad, either. And his UAB creds should help too on the surface.

7. Kelly Kraft -- Kraft isn't a closer (so far), but he is putting himself in good position on Saturday nights of late. That should be good for plenty of fantasy points this week.

8. Sam Ryder -- I like Ryder particularly because he's made a lot of cuts dating back into January, and he finished in the top 15 here in the Web.com Tour version of this event last year.

9. Jim Furyk -- Not willing to put Furyk into my top five, but he scored a T-7 in his comeback from a shoulder injury at Copperhead. Worth a look. Playing captain?

10. Rafael Campos -- Consider this a flier pick. Campos has two top-three finishes on the Web.com Tour this season in tropical or exotic locations, and he finished in the top 15 here in the Web.com event.

My primary DraftKings lineup

  1. Patrick Rodgers - $10,000
  2. Kelly Kraft - $8,600
  3. J.T. Poston - $8,100
  4. Abraham Ancer - $7,900
  5. Sam Ryder - $7,800
  6. Adam Schenk - $7,500
