In a salary-cap fantasy golf game — for money or not — you’re bound to have to make some tough choices. You can’t pick all of the top names, so you have to find value amid the ranks to get maximum points and hopefully win your game.
Here’s a look at some of the values we’ve found at DraftKings this week:
Charles Howell III ($7,100) — CH3 has never missed the cut in this event, even before PGA National, so he’s as safe a name as it gets to earn four rounds’ worth of points.
Fredrik Jacobson ($7,200) — Freddy Jac doesn’t miss here either, and has a better overall record finish-wise than Howell. An almost certain four rounds and has only finished outside of the top 25 here once.
Erik Compton ($5,800) — Compton was a MDF victim here last year, but he hasn’t missed the 36-hole cut here in four tries. Rounds mean points.
