PGA DFS: DraftKings Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks and Advice for the WGC- Bridegstone Invitational


I hope you took a look at my picks last week, because if you did then you hit it big. Rickie Fowler had 130.5 fantasy points and a runner up finish. Lee scored 99 fantasy points tying for 4th with 12 under. Will Wilcox finished tied for 21st, 7 under, and Tiger Woods even came to play shooting an 8 under, tying for 18th. My lock of the week, Ollie Schniederjans, shot a 9 under, tying for 15th. At one point on Friday he was 10 under with a three-stroke lead and I loved every minute of it.

Ricky Barnes was playing well until his 78 on Sunday, resulting with an even score for the tournament. My sleeper, Whee Kim, who was priced at $5,500 tied for 11th, 10 under for the tournament. Erik Compton was my worst pick, and the player I stayed away from, Robert Allenby, missed the cut. Unfortunately I did not pick the winner, Troy Merritt. It was Merritt’s first PGA tournament win, winning by three strokes and finishing 18 under. Golfers now head to LeBron James’ hometown of Akron, Ohio for the World Golf Championships- Bridgestone Invitational.

Editor’s Note: Our Partner DraftKings is hosting another huge tournament on August 13th. The Millionaire Maker has a jaw dropping $1,000,000 prize to first place and $3,300,000 in guarenteed total prizes, and it's only $20 to enter! You can also win a spot in the contest by placing in one of the many satellite tournaments.

If you sign up and make a deposit now, you’ll get a 100% bonus on your first DraftKings deposit. We’ll also give you free access to RotoBaller’s Premium MLB DFS Lineup Picks and Tools (a $29.99 monthly value).

 

The best gofers will be competing in this tournament: the likes of Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia, and Zach Johnson. The tournament will be played in Firestone Country Club on the South Course. The course is 7,400 yards long and plays to a par 70. Due to this tournament being part of the PGA Tour, European Tour, and Japan Golf Tour we will get to see the game’s best golfers. Defending champion Rory McIlroy will not be participating due to his ankle injury, but we will still see some pretty great golfers mentioned earlier.

Note: the cheapest players are $7,000, which seems odd. This tournament has a very strict invitation policy, as there are only 77 players in the field, usually half the field in other tournaments. You can read more about the invitation policy here. Another very important thing to note when making your lineup is that there is no cut, meaning every player will play four rounds no matter what. A key stat to remember for this tournament is that Greens in Regulation will play a huge factor in who wins this weekend, so players with a high ranking should be considered.

 

PGA DFS High-Priced DraftKings Picks ($9,500-$12,500)

Adam Scott ($10,200 Vegas 15-1)

Scott has been playing great as of late, tying for fourth at the U.S. Open and tying for 10th at the British Open, the last tournament he played in. Scott ranks second in GIR, and fourth in driving distance. He won this tournament in 2011, tied for 14th in 2013 and tied for eighth last year. I’d say he’s got a great chance to win this tournament.

Henrik Stenson ($9,900 Vegas 23-1)

Three of the last five winners of this tournament were first or second in ball striking. Stenson ranks number one in that category and fifth in drive accuracy percentage. The last two winners were first and second in GIR. Stenson is number one in that category. He has not had the greatest season to date (tied for 19th at Masters, tied for 27th at U.S. Open and tied for 40th at the British Open). He finished runner up two years ago and last year tied for 19th. He has finished in the top 20 four times in eight tries at this tournament. He is my pick to win.

Quick Hitters

Jordan Spieth ($12,500 Vegas 5-1) will be up there, but it can be risky to choose the favorite when the cheapest player is $7,000.

Dustin Johnson ($10,800 Vegas 27-2) will smoke the ball, but his putting has to improve if he’s got any shot of winning this one.

Rickie Fowler ($10,500 Vegas 14-1) is a good alternative.

 

PGA DFS Mid-Priced DraftKings Picks ($8,000-$9,400)

Keegan Bradley ($8,800 Vegas 30-1)

The St. John’s product won this tournament in 2012, tied for second a year later, and tied for fourth last year. Throw out the stats on this guy. It's safe to say he will play well again this weekend and possibly improve from his previous results.

Brooks Koepka ($8,400 Vegas 45-1)

Koepka has been stellar in his last four tournaments: tied for 18th at U.S. Open, tied for 22nd at the Scottish Open, and tying for 10th at British Open. He is 14th in GIR, eighth in driving distance, and eighth in total putting. Don’t let him get overshadowed by the bigger named players, as he’s still a great lower price choice.

Paul Casey ($8,000 Vegas 60-1)

Casey hasn’t had the greatest season but finished tied for sixth at the Masters and had a runner up finish at the Travelers. Casey ranks seventh in GIR and sixth in ball striking. Casey has played well here with five top 20 finishes, including tying for fourth in 2006.

 

PGA DFS Low-Priced DraftKings Picks ($7,000- $7,900)

Danny Lee ($7,700 Vegas 85-1)

Besides getting cut at the British Championship, he had a great July. He opened July with his first PGA Tour win at the Greenbrier, followed that up with a third place tie at the John Deere Classic, and last week tied for fourth at the Quicken Loans National. If you’re looking to shed some salary, look no further than to Lee.

Robert Streb ($7,500 Vegas 10-1)

In Streb’s last outting, he had a nice showing at the British Open, tying for 18th. He’s had seven top 10s including a win earlier in the year at the 2014 McGladery Classic. Streb ranks 10th in GIR, and 29th in total putting.

Graeme McDowell ($7,300 Vegas 225-1)

This man is getting zero respect. He tied for eighth last year, yet he’s priced as one of the cheapest players. I understand he has not been playing well all year, but if you want a player at a great price who could really surprise, he’s your guy.
