DraftKings Daily Fantasy Guide for Golf’s First Major

Study up for golf’s first major with the DraftKings Daily Fantasy Guide*, an exclusive, downloadable PDF that’s packed with information and can help you build your DraftKings lineups!

Golf experts such as Pat Mayo and Geoff Ulrich take you inside the major tournament as only they can, ranking every golfer in the field, making picks at all salary levels and offering strategy advice that could bolster your roster construction.

For just $9.99, you can buy the All-Inclusive Package, which offers the following:

In-depth analysis of golf’s first major, including Geoff Ulrich’s Cheat Sheet. Geoff breaks down the course, highlights historic winning trends and course horses (players who’ve dominated the event in the past), and provides his picks to win and to provide value.

Geoff offers strategies for DraftKings cash games: “While the top end of the field is loaded this week, I don’t believe there’s any need to splurge on one golfer. Going balanced with multiple golfers in the $8,000-to-$10,000 range is very easy and provides you with a lot of flexibility.” And gives insight into tournament play: “Seeking potentially overlooked golfers with good upside in a field like this isn’t always easy.” To see which golfers Geoff likes in each format, go inside the fantasy guide.

Weather also can be a huge factor in fantasy golf, and Geoff is on top of what the means for this week’s field: Rain isn’t guaranteed, but thunderstorms are possible for Wednesday, and there’s at least a chance of rain Thursday. The weekend mostly is the same, and even though highs will get into the mid-70s, the forecast shows it might drop to the low-50s as well. So, the earlier starters could have to grapple with some colder weather. Expect a soft course for at least the first two days.

There’s so much to consider when building fantasy golf lineups, and Geoff is here to help with insights into every aspect of the game.

•   Geoff and Pat Mayo rank each golfer in the 80-plus-player field. Inside you’ll see that past champions at this week’s event include Sergio Garcia, Danny Willett, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Adam Scott, Charl Schwartzel, Phil Mickelson, Angel Cabrera and Trevor Immelman, but how do their chances look this time? And can you find value in rostering such popular players.

Inside, you’ll also see that Sergio cracks Pat and Geoff’s top 20 – not really a surprise, right? – and here’s his 2018 outlook:


Garcia is headed back to Augusta for the first time as the owner of a green jacket. He’s made a start here each year since 1999. In that timeframe, Garcia has missed just five cuts and has six top-20 finishes. Over the past three years, he’s broken 70 four times out of his 12 rounds. He’s made 11 straight cuts worldwide and is on a streak of three straight top-10s. It’s hard to repeat as Masters champion, but he could become the fourth golfer in history to accomplish that feat, joining Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods.

Who else could be near the top of this year’s rankings? You’ll see some familiar names, along with maybe a surprise or two …

•   Do you know which golfers have helped DraftKings players win the Fantasy Golf Millionaire Maker the past three years? See the highest-performing golfers in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 tournaments, as well as the most-popular, highest-cashing and highest-priced players in those competitive fields.

•    Pat and Geoff Ulrich’s rankings, as well as DraftKings expert analysis and stats for each golfer in the field.
