The final major of the PGA Tour season is here – The PGA Championship and with it comes the last chance at big prize pools across the DFS sites.
So you may ask why do I need to find sleeper picks for my fantasy golf lineup? Well for example, the Fantasy Golf Millionaire contest your average price per player is $8,333 for 6 players. The top picks like Speith, Rory or DJ will be over $11,000 and most of the other top fantasy picks will be in the $8K - $10K range so you will need to find 2-3 players in the $6,000 - $7,500 range to be able to create a solid lineup.
The guys we have listed below will be priced in that range and should have a great shot at making the cut and get you through the weekend.
Top Sleeper Picks
Oosthuizen was a low cost for the last Fantasy Golf Millionaire contest and everyone jumped on him only to have him get bounced after the first two rounds of the Open. The bandwagon has passed and now you will get him at very low ownership.
Man did we get burned with Harman at the Open who followed up a good 1st round with a 78 on the Friday blowing up our fantasy golf lineups. How is his course history at Quail Hollow? Well he won there this year at the Wells Fargo so I would say it’s not bad.
Prior to playing the WGC Bridgestone, Berger has had 3 Top 5 finishes, a T27 at the Open and a missed cut at the US Open. He also has a great history at Quail Hollow playing the Wells Fargo Championship and will come with a cheap price.
Dufner won the Memorial just two months ago and has had a pretty good 2017. Dufner also won the PGA Championship in 2013. He’ll be low owned so worth a shot with how well he is playing.
Finau has been on a pretty good run this year and has a good course history playing at Quail Hollow. Recently had a T5 at the RBC Canadian Open and a T27 at the Open Championship.
Biggest Longshot Pick
Westwood was uttered in the same breath as the best player to never win a major. Unfortunately Westwood’s age has made it unlikely that he ever will but he is still super competitive in all the majors and most people don’t see that he actually has a respectable record on the European Tour. He is ranked 55th in the world and most betting sites have him listed as a 100-1 longshot to win. If Westwood was to ever win one I do believe that the PGA Championship would be the one he has a legit chance at.
