Let our fantasy experts help you pick a great golf lineup.
The CIMB Classic golf tournament is set for Oct. 12-15 at TPC Kuala Lumpur in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. That means it's time to pick your optimal DraftKings fantasy golf lineup. Fortunately, our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.
Here's what our best CIMB Classic 2017 lineup looks like:
Justin Thomas ($12,300)
Last week, we went with defending Safeway champion Brendan Steele, and it paid off. This week, we’ll one-up ourselves and go with the two-time defending CIMB champion, who also just happens to be the reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year and finished second his last time out. Yes, it’ll cost you, but you get what you pay for.
Brendan Steele ($8,300)
Last week’s winner has finished no worse than T26 in his three trips to Malaysia. He was in the top 10 here last year through 54 holes before a late fade. The guy is peaking; strike while the iron is hot.
Kevin Na ($8,200)
His career scoring average at TPC Kuala Lumpur is a tidy 68.08 with a couple top-3 finishes. That’ll play. He culminated the recently completed season with two top-6 finishes in his final four tournaments.
Rafa Cabrera Bello ($7,400)
Rafa looks like a bargain this week. He’s 19th in the world and has a win and five other top 10s in 2017. Finished T10 at the 2016 CIMB in his first appearance in Kuala Lumpur.
Stewart Cink ($7,000)
The 2017 winner of the Payne Stewart Award for charity, character and sportsmanship is truly one of the good guys. So what does that have to do with fantasy? Nothing really. Just makes him easy to root for. And he does have a T11 and a T17 on his CIMB career ledger.
Chad Campbell ($6,800)
This former World top 20 player hasn’t won since 2007 and hasn’t had a top 3 since 2012. Strictly a Kramer-style seat-filler at this point in his career, although he’s good for the occasional out-of-nowhere top 10.
