Last week’s PGA fantasy golf picks were looking great until Walker collapsed on Sunday. Oh well, still 6/6 making the cut always equals wins in 50/50 contests and a decent tournament showing as well.
This week is the CIMB Classic overseas, which has a WEDNESDAY 7pm start! So get your lineups ready early this week.
In case you were not following us last year (please join the email list at the end to follow me) let me tell you a little about my DraftKings golf strategy and timeline.
Sunday nights will produce my original posting of 5 golfers who should play well. Then, when the official DraftKings lineups become available I will release my predictions in order to get you the optimal lineup available to ensure the best finish possible. Now, it does not always work out as planned, but that is DFS golf for you.
CIMB Classic Fantasy Golf Picks – DraftKings DFS
Gary Woodland- A good showing here last year along with his overall improvement of becoming more than just a big hitter should allow Woodland to compete again at a high level this year. I think he is getting ready to compete for a PGA Championship if he continues his growth.
Sergio Garcia – Can he win here? Sure can. You never truly know where his head is at, but the bottom line is he is one of the best ball strikers in the last 20 years. In a small field like this, I like his chances. In any field that is not a major I like his chances though.
Ryan Moore- The back to back defending champ has to be on your short list. He did not play well last week, and probably will not win 3x in a row, but how far could he fall? Gotta think he will be a top 10 at least.
Paul Casey- Casey ended the last season playing solid golf and was posting consistent high finishes. The consistency is what I like. Another guy that is on the short list of the next to win a major. Just stay healthy.
5. Danny Lee- Like Casey, he ended the year playing very well. In fact, he played most of last year at a high level and could be in the top 10 world rankings by the end of this year.
Stay tuned for the official Johnny G fantasy golf lineup when the DraftKings contest starts!
