Sleepers & Longshots for the British Open Championship

Jason DufnerJason Dufner (80-1) – The thing I noticed most watching the US Open was how much Jason Dufner has gotten into great shape. Last year he had injuries and marital issues which messed up his game. For a long time, Dufner was a great fantasy golf pick and with his 18th place finish at Chambers Bay, Dufner may be on the upswing for his career and a solid pick this week.

Bill HaasBill Haas (125-1) – Haas was a disappointment last month missing the cut at the US Open and recently missed the cut at the Greenbrier even with an opening round of 66. Haas hasn’t had a stellar career at the British Open, but he makes cuts and he is a great low cost option for your fantasy golf line up.

Keegan BradleyKeegan Bradley (80-1) – Bradley has never finished worse that 34th at The Open and this year he has cracked the top 30 in both majors. St. Andrews sometimes favors guys that hit the ball long and Bradley is one of those guys. He is a great price and should make the cut this week.

Kevin NaKevin Na (125-1) – Kevin Na survived Chambers Bay and now gets to focus on a more predictable golf course. He hasn’t had great history at The Open, but Na has played really well in 2015 and at a low salary cap cost, he would be a nice 6th spot on your fantasy golf team.

Zach JohnsonZach Johnson (80-1) – Johnson has had a quiet 2015 on Tour, but has played pretty well overall. He won’t win the 2015 British Open, but he has played St. Andrews twice already and has been pretty good in past Open Championships. He’s not the cheapest British Open sleeper pick, but he still is a low enough price to be a great value pick.

Graham DeLaetGraham DeLaet (125-1) – This is more of a hunch longshot. DeLaet played really well in 2014, but 2015 has been a bit of a disappointment. Having just qualified for the British Open, he is playing pretty decent golf right now leading into the tournament at St. Andrews and is a low enough cost for your fantasy golf line up to take a flier on.
