Winning at daily fantasy golf is not easy, particularly in tournaments with a lot of entries, including this week’s DraftKings $150,000 event for the WGC-HSBC Champions. There will be almost 57,500 entries, and just one will take home the $12,000 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’ll need all six players to have a great week. That means you need to find value in players — especially, a limited-field, no-cut event, those around $8,000 — with lower salaries in a salary-cap contest, like the ones on DraftKings.
With that in mind, and a limited inventory this week, here are some sleepers we see in the DraftKings WGC-HSBC Champions contest:
1. Daniel Summerhays ($7,300) — He’s a bargain again this week, coming off a T-14 finish at the CIMB Classic.
2. K.T. Kim ($7,400) — Kim won last week on the Japan Tour for the fifth time this year, so he’s been playing some great golf.
3. Soren Kjeldsen ($7,200) — Kjeldsen has been in the top 11 in four of his last five European Tour starts, including a T-11 finish at the Turkish Airlines Open.
Our picks last week did well for the most part:
1. Cameron Tringale — T-14
2. Daniel Summerhays — T-14
3. Rory Sabbatini — T-53
