The good news is that for a tournament like the US Open you get to pick from a solid bunch of golfers since you have to either be pretty good to qualify for the US Open or have been a past majors winner or have won a tournament this PGA Tour season.

Although we won’t know salary cap prices for golfers at FanDuel until the week of the major at Erin Hills, we do know historically which guys are usually below average in price and those are the guys that you can consider sleepers. They also most likely won’t win the US Open, but for my lineups I want guys to make the cut and score all 4 rounds which is the focus of the list below.

Sleepers and Longshots for the U.S. Open in 2017

Alex NorenAlex Noren – Noren is ranked in the top 10 in the world of golfers and yet most people don’t even know that he exists. He won’t be a high priced player at FanDuel so plug him into a bunch of lineups and take advantage of other fantasy golfers that don’t know of him and his value.

Emiliano Grillo Emiliano Grillo – I love using Grillo as a sleeper pick because he makes cuts and is always a sub $7000 salary cap pick. He won’t win the US Open (although he has the game to do it), but he will let you fit in some more U.S. Open Favorites into your lineups and not hurt your team.

Daniel Berger Daniel Berger – Berger is a guy that flies under the radar, but has played well in both his US Open events (28th and 37th place finishes). He will be another low cost guy to look at for your Fantasy Golf Millionaire lineups so keep him on your list as he will most likely be around the $7K range.

Byeong Hun An Byeong Hun An – More of a longshot pick than a sleeper, but I like him to make the cut this week. He finished in 33rd at the Masters this year, he has only one missed cut so far in 2017, and finished T23 at last year’s US Open at Oakmont. A low cost pick at all daily fantasy golf sites.

Daniel Berger Charl Schwartzel – Schwartzel was dealing with a wrist injury, but seemed OK while playing at the Memorial Tournament 2 weeks ago. He has been mediocre all year but at a low cost he is worth looking at as an underdog pick in your lineups.

Longshot Pick for the U.S. Open

Jim Furyk Jim Furyk – I loved Furyk going into the 2017 PGA Tour season and he’s been a huge disappointment. I can barely justify him being on this list, but if his poor play makes him a really low price, then as a longshot, having a guy like Furyk could be worth taking a flier on.
