How do they do it? How do fantasy players consistently make money playing fantasy golf at sites like our affiliate partner DraftKings.com? What am I doing wrong?
Have you asked yourself these questions before? Well here are some answers for you...
Below we have some daily fantasy golf strategies and tips to help you Make Money Playing Daily Fantasy Golf just like the fantasy golf experts do.
Play 50/50 or Cash Game Contests
As much as we all want to win a big contest jackpot playing fantasy golf, the reality is that the odds are stacked against you. The best fantasy golf players mostly play head to head games or even more popular are 50/50 games. When you play in 50/50 games, your odds improve to a 50% change of winning. The more players you compete against, the better your chances. Don’t get me wrong - you still need to do the research and pick the best fantasy golf lineup - but it is a lot easier to win when 50% of the contest gets paid out. Most top fantasy golf players create a lineup they think will win and then offer and accept multiple head to head challenges and play in many 50/50 games ranging from $2-$50. Even if you only win 60% of your games, you will still win money.
Watch Golf and Take Notes
You can read stats and stories until your eyes pop out, but if you watch and follow golf on a regular basis via the PGA Tour coverage, you will learn who’s hot, who’s not, who is having swing issues, who is changing coaches, who is dealing with personal issues, whose game suits one type of course over another, etc... These are all tips that you pick up watching the coverage and hearing what the announcers say. They watch the most golf on the planet so they know almost everything that is going on the PGA Tour.
Play The Top Players in Weak Fields
Some top PGA Tour tournaments, like the majors or some of the other big tourneys, have the top 50 golfers in the world competing. Look at smaller tournaments that have only 3 or 4 of the top 50 golfers entered. More often than not, one of the top guys at least contends in the tournament and he should be sitting in your fantasy golf lineup.
Use Expert Help and Tools
If you really want advice on who to pick for your fantasy golf team, don’t waste your time reading blog articles with picks and predictions of who will win the next PGA Tour tournament (if they really were any good at picking winners, do you think they’d still be writing a golf blog?). Invest in a site like GolfStats.com which makes a living compiling the best golf stats on the internet and writing amazingly thorough tournament previews. They can be used for betting purposes as well as Daily Fantasy Golf. Their insight and picks usually gets you a golfer or two that will net you several top 10 finishes which results in a ton of fantasy golf points.
