So not to beat our own drum but in last year’s Masters Sleepers and Longshots page we hit on all but one of our picks including our 2 longshots that made the cut and our 60-1 pick Danny Willett went out and won the whole damn thing.
We had some nice cashes in the Fantasy Golf Millionaire contest and won outright with our 60-1 bet on Willett. So needless to say we come into this year beaming with confidence and are hoping to re-peat our success with some solid sleeper picks for us and you.
Our Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks
Haas is one of my favorite picks for GPP tournaments because he usually makes cuts and for the Masters he has a solid track record of not only making the cut but finishing in the top 20 to 30. He is almost always priced as a low end option so should leave you plenty of room for other studs.
“Kooooch” can be heard in the galleries of Augusta for 4 days as he is another one that makes cuts consistently. He’s had an up and down 2017 being either really good…or missing cuts but he knows this course and generally finishes top 30. He should be under the radar going in and low owned.
He probably won’t be priced as a true sleeper pick for the Masters but nobody is picking him to win this week so I'm not worried about high ownership with him.. He has had a great 2017 with a few Top 10 finishes already.
This pick comes with an asterisk because if he is priced over $9000 I'm probably going to look at another player but if he’s in the $8000 and possibly $7000 range then jump on him for at least for a couple of lineups.
So the odds makers already have the rookie of the year candidate as more of a favorite than a sleeper but that’s because he’s been so good in 2017! Casual golf fans still might not jump on board so if he is not overpriced in the above $9000 range, I say draft him.
Our Biggest Longshot Pick
Okay, so he won’t win but he is ranked in the Top 70 in the world and finished 7th last year at Augusta and 9th at the Open Championship. If you are looking for a cheap salary cap player for your GPP lineup then he is your man.
