June 7, 2024 12:15 pm EDT

This week, the LIV Golf Tour presents Golf fans with LIV Golf Houston. Let’s take a look at this event from a Draftkings perspective.

Before I dive into my Draftkings player selections for this event let’s review the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a player’s success at this week’s LIV Golf Tour event.

Where will the 2024 LIV Golf Houston be played?

The 2024 LIV Golf Houston event will be played at the Golf Club of Houston (Tournament Course) in Humble, Texas. The golf course is a par 72 that measures approximately 7,425 yards.

The Tournament Course at the Golf Club of Houston hosted the Houston Open on the PGA Tour from 2006 through 2019.

Lanto Griffin won the last Houston Open played at the Golf Club of Houston (Tournament Course) in 2019.

2024 LIV Golf Houston Draftkings Picks

Bryson DeChambeau $10,900

Since the beginning of March, Bryson DeChambeau has played seven tournaments (LIV Golf and PGA Tours combined). In those seven events just noted, DeChambeau accumulated an impressive six top nine finishes, including a second-place result at the 2024 PGA Championship three weeks ago.

Bryson DeChambeau also checks the box for me when it comes to key player statistics. DeChambeau is currently ranked first in driving distance (318.9), ninth in scrambling (67.33%), and ninth in GIR (greens in regulation-73.28%) on the LIV Golf Tour.

In my opinion, Bryson DeChambeau’s skillset fits the Tournament Course at the Golf Club of Houston perfectly. I fully expect DeChambeau to continue his outstanding play on the golf course in Texas this week.

Dustin Johnson $9,200

The 2020 Masters winner arrives at this week’s event in rather good form. Dustin Johnson has accumulated six top 27 finishes (LIV Golf and PGA Tours combined), including a win at the 2024 LIV Golf Las Vegas event in February.

Similar to Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson looks good from a player statistics standpoint. Johnson is currently ranked sixth in birdie average (4.71), ninth in GIR (greens in regulation-73.28%), and ninth in driving distance (307.7) on the LIV Golf Tour.

It should be noted that Dustin Johnson has posted a quality result at the Golf Club of Houston previously. Johnson finished third at the 2016 Houston Open.

Thomas Pieters $8,500

Thomas Pieters arrives at this week’s LIV Golf Tour event on the heels of four consecutive top 14 finishes (LIV Golf and DP World Tours combined), including an impressive fifth place result at the 2024 LIV Golf Singapore event five weeks ago.

Due to Thomas Pieters quality finish at the 2024 LIV Golf Singapore event I decided to take a hard look at the relevant player statistics for the tournament to see how Pieters fared relative to the field.

Upon the completion of four rounds of comPetitive play at the 2024 LIV Golf Singapore event, in relation to the field, Thomas Pieters ranked 14th in GIR (greens in regulation-74.07%), third in scrambling (85.71%), and 18th in driving distance (307.4 yards).

Scott Vincent $6,600

Scott Vincent has accumulated two consecutive top six finishes (South African and Japan Tours combined), including a third place at the 2024 Zimbabwe Open three weeks ago.

Additional Golfers I like to play well (Draftkings price noted): Tyrrell Hatton $9,900: Brooks Koepka $10,000: Joaquin Niemann $10,400: Abraham Ancer $9,100: Richard Bland $8,000: Charles Howell III $7,800: Brendan Steele $7,500: Kieran Vincent $6,300.
