DraftKings Golf Lineup Picks: PGA's Sony Open in Hawaii

Jimmy Walker may be the safest pick possible.

Trying to find your optimal DraftKings lineup for this week's (Jan. 12-15) golf tournament: the 2017 Sony Open in Hawaii? Our fantasy-golf experts are ready to help.


Here's what our optimal lineup looks like.

 

Justin Thomas ($10,500)

Thomas' last six finishes: T6, T8, 1, T23, T4, 1. If he were any hotter, his caddie would need an asbestos bib. 

 

Jimmy Walker ($9,900)

The reigning PGA Champion won the Sony in 2014 and '15 and finished T13 last year. Just about the safest play on the board. 

 

Brandt Snedeker ($9,700)

As you can see, we're suggesting that you front-load your roster this week. Sneds lost this event in a playoff last year and is coming off a solid showing at Kapalua.  

 

Jerry Kelly ($6,800)

Kelly is old enough for the Champions Tour (he turned 50 in November), but don't let that dissuade you from a sneaky value pick. He has four top-15 finishes here in the last five years. 

 

David Toms ($6,700)

Another Champions-eligible vet who can't be counted on for weekly consistency, Toms still shows game in brief bursts. He won the Sony in 2006 and finished T-2 in '09. 

 

Ricky Barnes ($6,300)

Barnes opened with a 63 at the 2016 Sony before fading, and his four top 10s in 2016 marked his best showing since 2010.
