Bryson DeChambeau's lengthy drives haven't translated to success at Augusta National Golf Club, as the eight-time PGA Tour winner has never finished in the top 20 in five previous Masters appearances. However, DeChambeau is still among the top 15 golfers most expensive golfers in the PGA DFS player pool on FanDuel and DraftKings this week.

So, there is both evidence for and against targeting someone long off the tee when formulating your 2022 Masters DFS strategy.

2022 Masters PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the 2022 Masters is Adam Scott at $8,300 on DraftKings and $9,700 on FanDuel. Past performance is one of the best predictors of future success, and Scott already owns a green jacket via his 2013 Masters victory. He also has four other top-10 finishes at Augusta National and is coming off a top-10 in his last event at the WGC Dell Match Play.
Scott is long off the tee, ranking 19th in driving distance (310.2), and is converting on the green, ranking 13th in strokes gained putting (.602). The Aussie is also stellar at avoiding mistakes with a putter in his hands, as his 172 holes without a three-putt comprise the sixth-longest active streak on tour. With his current form, coupled with his proven Augusta success, you can see why McClure is high on Scott in his PGA DFS picks.
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Patrick Cantlay at $9,500 on DraftKings and $10,700 on FanDuel. Cantlay enters the Masters 2022 as one of the top putters on tour, which will make him one of the valuable PGA DFS picks this week.
Cantlay ranks first in one-putt percentage (46.97), third in putting average (1.668), fourth in total putting (88.8) and fifth in overall putting average (1.533). Cantlay's prolific putting stroke has the 30-year-old averaging 5.23 birdies per round this season, the second-best mark on the PGA Tour. The reigning FedEx Cup champion also ranks ninth in scoring average (69.949) and 16th in strokes gained around the green (.455), making him a solid building block for your 2022 Masters DFS strategy.
