Fantasy golf research: PGA Tour top-15 finish trends

Fantasy golf research: PGA Tour top-15 finish trends

When playing fantasy golf, there are two big-bucket ways to classify players you might pick: players who have done well on the host venue in the past -- the horses for courses -- and players who are on a hot streak right now.

However, it can be difficult to pore through data to see who has been playing well of late, for more than one week at a time.

So, exclusively for GNN Plus members, we track that information, which you can use as part of your weekly research for your daily and season-long fantasy games, as well your wagers.

We also offer a chart showing how DraftKings has valued every PGA Tour player for every PGA Tour event in the 2015-16 season.
