Today's PrizePicks PGA DFS Prop Picks - Over/Under Props for Valero Texas Open (Round 1)

Rickie Fowler - PGA DFS Lineup Picks, Daily Fantasy Golf

Welcome to our PrizePicks PGA DFS prop picks for the Valero Texas Open (Round 1). The 2023 PGA Tour season is in full swing, and our friends over at PrizePicks still have a TON of great props we can look to take advantage of.

PrizePicks is a great DFS props site where you can choose to select plays in terms of fantasy points or singular stats. The goal is to build a 2-player, 3-player, 4-player, or 5-player entry and then select whether or not you want to play for the power play or the flex play. On the power play, you will need to be correct on each of your selections to win, and on the flex play, you will have a little more wiggle room for a chance to win some money back.

Our partners at PrizePicks offer some of the best and easiest-to-win PGA DFS games in the industry. There are no large-field tournaments filled with sharks where you have to get lucky just to place. At PrizePicks, you're not playing against other people, you're just playing against the projections, and the guys at PrizePicks have worked hard to give you really attractive opportunities to make some money. With promo code 'BALLER' you can get a 100% match on your deposit of up to $100.

This week, we're at TPC San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open. It's the final opportunity for some of golf's marquee names to punch their ticket into the Masters next week, and as such, we've got plenty of star power on offer. I and the entire Rotoballer PGA staff have put out 1,000s of words on the course, key stats, and field this week, so this article won't be focused on the minutiae of projecting outright winners or DFS pivot plays. Instead, I'll be solely focused on a few money-making opportunities I've found in PrizePicks' unique markets to help you build your bankroll ahead of the year's first Major Championship! Today's plays are specifically for round one on Thursday, March 30.

Featured Promo: Our friends at PrizePicks are hooking you up. Get a 100% instant deposit match up to $100 using promo code BALLER with your first deposit, and also a free year of RotoBaller Premium access ($199 value)! Claim your 100% instant deposit match now, and use our prop picks to get off on a winning foot! 



Single Stat PGA Totals - DFS Prop Picks

Editor's Note: Prize Picks prop totals are not always available first thing in the morning, so check back during the day as other props may be added during the day.

Chris Kirk OVER Peter Malnati - Birdies or Better Matchup

On paper, this is the biggest mismatch I've seen in this Birdie or Better market. Not only does Kirk rate out as one of the more prolific birdie makers in this field (1st in Birdie or Better %, 3rd in Birdie Chances Created in 2023), but Malnati comes into this week on the back of some putrid form (4 Missed Cuts in a row, and outside the top 120 in Birdie Chances Created).

I mentioned in my weekly article how important keeping the ball in play off-the-tee will be this week, and these two couldn't be more diametrically opposed in that regard: Kirk rates 9th in Good Drive %, Malnati 119th. If you cannot consistently find fairways around TPC San Antonio, it will be very difficult to create consistent birdie looks, and Malnati's iron play has been nowhere near good enough to get him out of the trouble his driver will inevitably get him in.

As I see it, Malnati's only out in this matchup would be to roll in a million putts, but Kirk has not been that far behind him in recent putting splits (14th vs 6th over the last three months). If this was a stand-alone offering, I would be laying the absolute hammer here.


Rickie Fowler LESS THAN 71 Strokes

It's a big week for those of us in Fowler nation, as Rickie comes into the Valero needing a win to secure a spot in the Masters' field for the first time since 2020. The good news is that Fowler comes into this must-win situation playing some of the best golf we've seen since his peak.

He's gained strokes on approach in every start of the 2023 season so far, and the putter looks to be back to its vintage, free-flowing ways. Rickie's gained over 3 strokes per tournament with his flat stick over his last five starts, and this has allowed him to go on a torrid run of form: Logging 10th, 11th, 20th, 31st, and 13th place finishes in five of the PGA Tour's new "elevated events" to start the year. F

owler should be considered one of the favorites to find the winner's circle this week and he's made a habit of starting strong in 2023 - ranking 12th in this field in Round 1 scoring average.

As much as I love some of the under-the-radar names in the field this week, only one name will truly move the needle if he's in contention this weekend. Let's hope the opening act of this live-action Disney movie sets us up for a grand finale on Sunday night.


Corey Conners MORE THAN 12.5 Grees in Regulation:

There's an old adage amongst sports bettors that you always want the over on the highest total on the board, and the under on the lowest total. I'm paying homage to that philosophy with Corey Conners' O12.5 GIRs in Round 1 this week.

Although TPC San Antonio features some of the more difficult green complexes to hit on the PGA Tour, the smooth-swinging Canadian has had no trouble navigating these tricky approaches over the course of his career. The 2019 Valero Champion has never lost strokes on approach in four starts around this venue and has beaten the field average in GIR % in 14 of his 16 recorded rounds.

Fresh off of a 2-1 Match Play record in which he hit nearly 80% of his Greens in Regulation (38/48), and took tournament runner-up Cameron Young to the wire in the group stage, Conners has both the recent results and long-term profile to place my confidence in this week.

Other Recommendations

  • Matt Kuchar O8.5 Fairways Hit
  • Si Woo Kim OVER Emiliano Grill0 - Birdies or Better Matchup
  • Matt Wallace U8 Fairways Hit


Overall recommendation for this play: FLEX
