Fantasy Golf: Sony Open DFS



It’s Hawaii.

You have plenty of time tomorrow to set your lineups and make ridiculous last-minute decisions that you’ll regret Sunday night!

Take a number.

DraftKings has plenty of ways to join the action weekly in a salary-cap-format game. Gamers pick six players on a budget of $50,000 and hope they make the cut and go low. Each week I’ll list the players who I think have the most value and give examples of potential lineups.



Select six players who fit into the $50,000 salary cap maximum at Player values are established by DraftKings.


Last Week:


Frontloaded the SBC TOC with Spieth (T-3), Reed (T-6) and Snedeker (T-14) but when you don’t have the winner, it doesn’t matter in Fantasy Land. I’d point out that my “bottom” selections of Pat Perez (T-3) and Jim Herman (T-12) offset Aaron Baddeley’s long week (T-25).


My lineup this week: Sony Open

Hideki Matsuyama ($11,000): Form is too good to leave off regardless of course history.

Jimmy Walker ($9,900): Softest of the soft landing places after a crooked week at Kapalua.

Pat Perez ($8,000): If he was in the lineup last week and finished T-3, what’s taking him out this week? Right, nothing, especially since this is a place where he thrives.

William McGirt ($7,900): Get used to seeing him in this column because all three facets of his game are steady spaghetti.

Jerry Kelly ($6,800): Almost as famous as Jack Lord in these parts but might be more popular. 2002 champ has hit the top 10 the last three years. Mahalo.

Hideto Tanihara ($6,400): Check my preview for all the details but he’s by far the best buy under $6,500 and it’s not even close.


Plan B

You’re welcome to mix-n-match if the guys above don’t float the boat.

Starting a team with Spieth after making 26 birdies and an eagle last week should work as well. He said on TV after his round Sunday that Waialae should fit his game. His words > my guess.

Tough choices is tier II as Woodland, Casey, Piercy, Berger all deserve a look. This is one of the better fields I can remember at Sony and you’ll earn it this week.

My gut won’t stop rumbling with Harold Varner, III, Michael Kim and Kyle Stanley. Brian Gay is another wonderful outsider to sneak in the back door if you’re looking to zig when they zag.


Gut Shot(s)

One ping. One ping only.

Zac Blair ($7,600): Unbelievable results (T-6, third) in just two attempts. The rest of his season makes you scratch your head.
