7/18:Athletes will always have to deal with the inevitably of aging. Some players quickly find themselves over the hill, while others age gracefully and compete for a very long time at the highest level. Phil Mickelson, without a doubt, falls into the latter category. The 48-year-old has been a steady presence on tour all season, providing three-top 10 finishes, including a win at the WGC Mexico Championship in March. However, regardless of how good Lefty currently looks, there comes a time in every athlete's career that their skills begin to diminish rapidly. We aren't there yet, but Mickelson will probably only have a handful of more opportunities to capture one last Major in his career. Mickelson won his only Open Championship title in 2013 and was the runner-up finisher in one of the greatest head-to-head battles we have ever seen, losing to Stenson in 2016. We think there are too many potential landmines for Mickelson at Carnoustie but with father time knocking on the door, Mickelson will give it all he has.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/18:Matt Kuchar rolls into the Open Championship this year showing very minimal form. The cut-making machine has missed two straight cuts in a row, which is the first time since 2011 that the American hasn't made the weekend in back-to-back events he has played. On top of struggling with hisread more...
7/18:Brendan Steele will attempt to turn his Open Championship fortunes around this week at Carnoustie. Steele has struggled in golf's oldest major, missing the cut in all three of his career Open appearances. The American picked up a PGA Tour win last October and started the 2018 on fire, reeling off six consecutive cuts made. However, Steele's game has nosedived since an ugly Masters performance. Over his last three tournament appearances, Steele has only managed an MDF, a T63, and a missed cut. It seems unlikely that Steele will find his game this week in an environment where he has traditionally struggled. He shouldn't be in DFS consideration with his current form.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/18:Louis Oosthuizen enters this week's Open Championship with some serious injury concerns. The South African was forced to withdraw from last week's Scottish Open with a neck injury. While we do not know the extent of the injury, it does raise some major red flags. The 2010 Open champion, Oosthuizen has performed well over the past two months and most recently nabbed a T16 at the U.S. Open. He was considered a popular dark horse contender at Carnoustie before the injury scare last week. DFS players must weigh the risk vs. reward when deciding whether or not to deploy Oosthuizen this week. He will be a very low-owned option, but a mid-tournament withdrawal is also a possibility. Use caution when considering Oosthuizen.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/18:Since Sergio Garcia's victory at the 2017 Masters, Rickie Fowler has gained the unofficial title of "Best Player To Never Win A Major." Fowler will try to change that title to 2018 Open Champion at Carnoustie this week. The popular American was achingly close to capturing the green jacket at the Masters earlier this year, but ultimately finished second to Patrick Reed. Fowler has fared well in prior Open appearances, making the cut in seven of eight starts, with a T5 in 2011 and a T2 in 2014. He is an excellent DFS option this week and his $9,700 price tag is substantially lower than some other elite players.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/18:Tony Finau has skyrocketed up the world golf rankings in the past two years. This will mark the first season that the young star will compete in all four major championships. Finau has been extremely impressive in the first two majors of 2018, finishing tied for sixth at the Masters and fifth at the U.S. Open. Finau's Open Championship experience is limited, but very encouraging. He logged a T18 in 2016 and a T27 last year. The young American's ability off the tee could be a huge advantage at a Carnoustie course that has seen very little rain over the past few months. Finau is hugely underpriced on DraftKings at just $7,200. He will be an extremely popular value play.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/18:Jason Day is flying under the radar as he heads to Carnoustie for this week's Open Championship. Day has won twice in 2018, but he isn't garnering the attention of the DFS community or gambling world. William Hill Sportsbook currently lists Day at 25 to 1 odds to win the Open. Those odds are similar to that of Tiger Woods. The odds and lack of DFS chatter are somewhat surprising, considering day has never missed a cut at the Open Championship in seven career appearances. It hasn't been the Aussie's best major, as Day's best finish was a T4 at St. Andrews in 2015. His short game has been off the charts this season, but he will need to sharpen up his ballstriking to compete at Carnoustie. Day is a very intriguing contrarian GPP option this week, at a cheap $8,800 price on DraftKings.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/18:The verdict is still up in the air on exactly how healthy Bryson DeChambeau is after pulling out of the John Deere Classic last week, but the young American is at Carnoustie and thankfully appears to be OK. DeChambeau suffered a scary looking shoulder injury during hisread more...
7/18:Luke List fired a 15-under par at the Scottish Open, finishing in a share of third place. The American got off to a blistering seven-under 63 start on Thursday, which just so happened to be the lowest round ever shot at the Gullane course in Scotland. Back-to-back rounds of 69 on Friday and Saturday drifted him down the leaderboard, but List was able to rebound with another explosive six-under 64 on Sunday. List, whose first major appearance came in 2003, has only made one of his six career cuts in Major tournaments, which includes no career starts at the Open Championship. The 33-year-old is ranked 10th in strokes gained tee to green in his last 24 rounds compared to the field but is a worrisome 82nd in sand saves and 85th in scrambling. It is hard to imagine that List will be able to compete during his first Open Championship ever but stranger things have happened.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/18:Justin Thomas comes into the Open Championship as one of the forgotten high-end DFS plays. The young American is the fifth most expensive player on DraftKings at $10,000 but only is projected to be the 32nd highest owned player on the site. Those statistics obviously don't coincide perfectly with each other since value plays will come from all prices ranges, and therefore we can't compare Thomas' ownership percentage to someone who is lower priced, but what it does show is that there is a definite discord between Thomas and the other players in his price range. Other than Jordan Spieth, there is no player at $8,200 or above that is projected to be as lowly owned as Thomas. As a contrarian play, we think Thomas makes for a nice GPP pivot, but if you don't think he has any chance to capture the title, we wouldn't recommend using him just for the sake of being different.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/17:Dylan Frittelli has the opportunity to make for a game-changing pick in large GPP fields. Frittelli is an excellent links player and is currently providing some exceptional form. The South African has been a radically different player in Europe than he has been in the United States. In Frittelli's last nine starts on foreign soil, he has recorded seven top-25 finishes and has made eight of nine cuts. At 28 years old, Frittelli provides the mature type of game you would want to see at a challenging course. The former University of Texas star is creeping up in projected ownership but is still expected to be under five percent owned. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/17:After a runner-up finish at the U.S. Open which included a final-round 63, Tommy Fleetwood is now considered a contender to take home the Open Championship at Carnoustie. It helps that the Englishman holds the course record here, also a 63 that he shot at the Dunhill Links Championship last year. However, Fleetwood says that course he set the record on will be quite different from the one that is played this week. “It is a completely different course. I played it on Sunday and I had never played it this firm or fast. Shots you have hit in the past have literally no relevance." Still, with his showing in the U.S. Open combined with his history and experience here, Fleetwood has to be considered a contender come Sunday.--Chris Mangano - RotoBallerSource: Press and Journal
7/17:People often forget that Hideki Matsuyama is only 26 years old and has played in just 23 total Majors. Often in sports, everyone tries to figure out who the next superstar of their particular game is and crown them as the future. But in the case of an athlete like Matsuyama, when he doesn't achieve the success that the general public expected of them, they quickly become discounted or even worse, completely forgotten. Matsuyama comes into the Open Championship this year flying as out of sight as maybe ever in his career. The five-time PGA Tour winner is currently a 40/1 mid-tier betting selection, according to the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook. We are not sure if Matsuyama is ready to win a Major quite yet but maybe coming into this year's Open Championship as an afterthought will help the Japanese sensation to finally breakthrough.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
7/17:After a brutal stretch of golf that saw him miss five cuts in six events, Sergio Garcia headed to Europe to prepare for the Open Championship and found his game. First came a T12 at the BMW International Open, that was followed by a T8 atread more...
7/17:It's hard to believe it's been four years since Rory McIlroy last won a major. After winning the Open Championship and PGA Championship to close out 2014, it seemed as if McIlroy would be winning one a year, if not more. Yet four years later and he's still stuck on four career majors. In the 13 majors since his last win he has finished top-10 in eight of them and top-five in four, but he has yet to get over the hump. Usually, as it was at this years Masters, his putting does him in. Tee to green McIlroy is one of the best in the world but will need to putt well all four days if he wants to add to his major total. McIlroy does have good history at Carnoustie, he finished T42 as an amateur back in 2007 after opening with a 68 that left him tied for third, but if he can't find the putting stroke it will be another missed opportunity for the talented Irishman.--Chris Mangano - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
