The Scorecrow covers PGA DFS? We are today. Thanks for stopping by and hopefully we can help you win some cash. There is a ton of money up for grabs all around the daily fantasy sports industry, including some free money tournaments on Draftkings. For all intents and purposes, this article’s research and pricing included are geared toward Draftkings. Without further ado, let’s get into some GPP picks for the third Major of the year, the U.S. Open.
Patrick Cantlay ($10,000)
Cantlay has finished in the top ten in each of his last four tournaments, including a top ten finish in the Masters and third place in the PGA Championship. He’s averaging 87.6 DK points per and is fresh off of a first-place performance in the Memorial Tournament. He’s cheaper in salary than all of the big dogs that will probably be mega chalky (Koepka, Woods, Johnson, and McIlroy). So, this could be a nice pivot strategy and would allow you to be able to fit in some better mid-range salary golfers.
Justin Thomas (9,300)
Justin Thomas was the second best tee-to-green player to Rory McIlroy at the RBC Canadian Open last week. He lost 3.3 strokes on the putting greens which seems like a rarity for him. He had a decent showing at the Masters, finishing in 12th place. I think Thomas bounces back with a strong showing here at the U.S. Open.
Graeme McDowell ($7,300)
Graeme McDowell could be sneaky and low-owned. The exact thing you are looking for when targeting golfers in tournaments. McDowell most recently finished eighth in the RBC Canadian Open last week. Now, you may or may not remember, the last time Pebble Beach Golf Links hosted the U.S. Open in 2010, Graeme McDowell won. It remains his only PGA Tour Major win but he seems to play well on this course. He finished 18th back in February for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Lucas Glover ($7,000)
Lucas Glover finished 7th in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He’s a boom or bust type of guy, but he could be a sneaky slate breaker at this price tag and since he has a decent history at this course, I’ll take the risk.
