DraftKings offering single-round Masters daily fantasy golf contests

DFS players, particularly daily fantasy golf players, are always looking for a sweat. They're looking for more ways to play, and DraftKings has tried to give that to DFS golf players with PGA Tour and European Tour games running all four rounds of a tournament, doing weekend contests for the final two rounds and even coming out with a fantasy game for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play this year.

Now, DraftKings is adding more chances to play at the 2018 Masters with the introduction of single-round contests. These contests launch with the Masters, and they'll be available in the second, third and final rounds on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

These single-round contests will run just like any other DraftKings daily fantasy golf contest. You'll pick six players with a salary cap of $50,000, and the players will earn points using the DraftKings scoring system for that one round. In Rounds 2 and 3, there won't be bonuses for finishing positions. In Round 4, the bonus points for finishes will be doled out, just as they would at the end of a four-round or two-round daily fantasy golf contest.

This is a great opportunity for daily fantasy golf players to continue to have action while their four-round or two-round teams aren't looking so hot.
