Henrik Stenson won the Wyndham Championship (-22) by one stroke over Ollie Schniederjans. Stenson shot a final round 64 to win his first event since The Open last year. 

The golf season has FOUR tournaments left. I will be providing you my DraftKings PGA DFS lineup picks for The Northern Trust. My goal as always is to help put together your optimal daily fantasy golf lineups.

If anyone has lineup questions before the start of the tournament Thursday morning, feel free to contact me via Twitter @Seth_Fink.

 

Reviewing Last Week's Pick

Bill Haas ($10,200): Made cut, did not finish (cut after 3rd round), 1-under. 

Grayson Murray ($9,100): Cut, 2- under. 

Beyond- Hun An ($8,900): Cut, 4-over. 

Chez Reavie ($8,100): T-37, 8-under. 

Ollie Schniederjans ($7,600): 2nd, 21-under.

The Northern Trust

The playoffs are here. The top 125 players in points plus ties will be in the field this week competing at the Northern Trust Open. At the conclusion of the Northern Trust, the top 100 players will go on to the Deutsche Bank Championship and then the top 70 t0 the BMW Championship. From there,  the top 30 players will play in the the season's final tournament, the Tour Championship. The winner of the FedEx Cup standings AFTER the Tour Championship receives $10 million.

The Northern Trust Open will be played at Glen Oaks Club, a 7,350 yard par-70, located in Old Westbury, NY. Players have a great opportunity to open with birdie on the 505-yard par 5 first hole. Interestingly enough, the 18th hole is also a par 5 playing to 543 yards, so the tournament can be won or lost on the first or last hole. You always need to take advantage of par-5's and a bogey on that first or last hole can do you in. There are two other par-5's on the course as well as four par-3's.

I'll be looking at driving distance and par 4 scoring.

 

Fantasy Golf Lineup Picks for DraftKings (PGA DFS)

High-Cost Players 

Dustin Johnson ($10,800)

Driving Distance: 1 Par 4 Scoring: T-11

DJ Is the fifth highest-priced player, and is the top player who can overpower this course. He's had three consecutive top-20's, and he shouldn't be more than 10% owned.

Jon Rahm ($8,900) 

Driving Distance: 16 Par 4 Scoring: 6

Since winning the Irish open he hasn't finished in the the top-25 the past three tournaments and saw his price drop from $11,400 at The Open to $8,900 now. His head gets in the way of his game and one bad shot can cause a chain reaction. He won't be so highly-owned and with his price being below $9,000, he has a great chance to really outperform his price.

 

Middle-Cost Players

Matt Kuchar ($8,700)

Driving Distance: 152 Par 4 Scoring: 11

Kuchar hasn't missed a cut since the last weekend in March, 12 straight tournaments. He's as consistent as they come these days with eight top-25s in his last nine events.

Patrick Reed ($8,600)

Driving Distance: 70 Par 4 Scoring: 55

Captain America is fresh off a runner-up at the PGA Championship. He's the type of players that will feed of the crowd and the gallery will absolutely love his fiery style.

Marc Leishman ($8,400)

Driving Distance: 41 Par 4 Scoring: 11

The Aussie has four top-25's in his last five starts. His price is a little high, but I'm willing to take a shot based off his stats and recent performance.

 

Low-Cost Players

Tony Finau ($7,300)

Driving Distance: 7 Par 4 Scoring: 11

Finau has made nine straight tournament cuts with two top-25's in the past two of four events. His stats are great for this course and I think he has a surprisingly good showing.

Brandon Grace ($6,900)

Driving Distance: 98 Par 4 Scoring: 116

Call me crazy, but I had a dream Grace was atop the leaderboard after a round, but I'm not so certain which one it was. My dreams tend to come true, so believe me or not. And by the way, Grace finished T-6 at The Open and before missing the cut at PGA Championship, he hadn't missed a cut since the Arnold Palmer Invt'l, nine tournaments.

 

Best of luck!
