World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba Fantasy Predictions & Expert Golf Picks

Author:
Tony Finau, PGA Tour

Tony Finau is one of several players that took part in this year's Ryder Cup who will tee it up for this PGA Tour stop in Mexico

The World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba is set for Nov. 4-7 at El Camaleon Golf Club in Riviera Maya, Mexico. That means it's time to pick your optimal DraftKings fantasy golf lineup. Fortunately, our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.

Here's what our best World Wide Technology Championship lineup looks like in this week's golfer predictions:

Tony Finau ($10,600)

In contrast with Bermuda, this week boasts a highly respectable field, with six players currently ranked in the World top 20 and 11 Ryder Cuppers headed to Mayakoba, including defending champion Viktor Hovland. But we're going to put our chips on a guy whose long-awaited second win — at the Northern Trust in the 2021 FedExCup playoffs — should open the floodgates in 2022. Tony was in the mix here last year, as he is in most places, finishing T8 with a 15-under total. Finau does a lot of things well, but the things he does best are score (14th last season in scoring average) and earn (11th in money). The wins are bound to follow.

Billy Horschel ($10,100)

Billy Ho's been on a roll of late, and his current hot streak really started in earnest at the 2020 Mayakoba, where he finished T5. Since then, he's won twice worldwide and posted six other top-25 finishes. This is his first PGA Tour appearance since the Tour Championship, but he's played twice in Europe, winning the BMW PGA in September. The 2014 FedExCup champ could make a run at another massive payday next September, starting this week.   

Aaron Wise ($9,600)

Wise is off to a fantastic start to the 2021-22 season, finishing T26, T8, T5 in his three tournaments so far. He's doing it with ball striking; his ranking of 8th in SG: Tee-to-Green on the young season has propelled him to 6th in Scoring Average (67.25). Wise finished solo second here last year, his best finish in a season that saw him reach the penultimate weekend of the playoffs. He's missed one cut in his last 12 tournaments.

Tom Hoge ($6,900)

Hoge has two factors working in his favor this week — he's off to a good start this season (4-for-5 in made cuts, with two top-20 finishes) and he finished T3 here a year ago. Make that three factors — he's relatively cheap. His ball striking has been solid this season (10th in SG: Approach the Green).

Graeme McDowell ($6,600)

We had decent luck with McDowell last week with his T12 — one of our few decent calls of what turned out to be a weird weekend — so we'll hop back on the Graeme Train for one more week. He's a past winner at Mayakoba and is confident heading back there. "We had very difficult conditions this week, obviously Thursday and today," he said Sunday. "But I really enjoyed the week, and it’s great prep for next week at Mayakoba, where I’ve won before."

Zach Johnson ($6,200)

ZJ hasn't done much of note in a while now. But we have a feeling that he'd like to get his game in shape for a trip back to St. Andrews, the site of the 2022 British Open and the place where Johnson won the Claret Jug in 2015 (his 12th and most recent win). Anytime you can get a two-time major champ at this price, it's worth a roll of the dice.
