Winning at daily fantasy golf is not easy, particularly in tournaments with a lot of entries, including this week's DraftKings $3.3 million event for the PGA Championship. There will be almost 190,000 entries, and just one will take home the $1 million first-place prize.
Getting the winner is essential to winning at daily fantasy golf and finding another player in the top five will carry your entry a lot way. However, to have any chance at the big money, you need to get six players to make the cut and play all 72 holes. That means you need to find value in players -- especially those under $7,000 -- with lower salaries in a salary-cap contest, like the ones on DraftKings.

With that in mind, here are some sleepers we see in the DraftKings PGA Championship contest:
Tony Finau ($6,800) -- How Finau is rated this cheap is beyond my comprehension. Finau has made the cut in nine of his last 10 starts, including a T-14 at the U.S. Open and top-25 finishes in eight of the nine cuts made. Steal of the week.
Russell Henley ($6,800) -- The UGA product has finished in the top 20 in his last three starts, including a great recovery weekend at the Open Championship. His best skill, putting, should be a huge asset if he can be OK from tee to green.
Boo Weekley ($6,300) -- Weekley has played a modest schedule, but has made his last six cuts, including two top-eight finishes. He's a multi-time winner on Pete Dye courses.
Pat Perez ($6,000) -- Perez has missed one cut in 22 starts this season and has been in the top 22 in three of his last four. He had two good finishes on Dye courses at Harbour Town and The Players.
George McNeill ($6,000) -- McNeill has missed two of his last four cuts, but he had made nine in a row before missing the weekend at the U.S. Open. Five of the 11 cuts he's made as part of that streak and since have been in the top 20.
Rory Sabbatini ($5,600) -- In his last five starts, Sabo has made four cuts, including two top-11 finishes. He's done well on courses that are tight off the tee.
THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
