Tiger Woods is a good fantasy pick for The Arnold Palmer Invitational

The Arnold Palmer Invitational golf tournament is set for March 15-18 at Bay Hill Golf Club in Orlando, Fla. 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 Arnold Palmer Invitational 2018 lineup looks like:

Tiger Woods ($10,000)

A single moment forced us to clear ourselves a spot on the bandwagon: On a day when he didn’t have his best stuff, Woods dropped a 50-foot bomb on 17 at the Valspar to give himself a chance to tie. It was a glimpse of the old, incomparable Tiger — the Tiger who won at Bay Hill eight times. We wouldn’t be able to forgive ourselves if he made it nine without us.  

Adam Scott ($8,700)

Scott has dropped to 56th in the world, but that just makes him a bargain this week. He’s emerged somewhat from his slump, posting back-to-back top-16 finishes thanks to some improved putting. He was T12 in his last API start, his fourth top 25 here in nine trips to Bay Hill.   

Brian Harman ($8,500)

He leads the Tour in top 5s on the young season with five in nine starts thanks largely to his ball striking — he’s second in GIR. But he’s also an underrated putter: He ranks sixth in SG: Putting, and his last time out, he led the field in total distance of putts holed at the WGC-Mexico on his way to a T5.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat ($7,900)

We’ve been singing the K-man’s praises for a while now, and the world is noticing: He’s up to No. 31 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He’s also coming off a win in Asia — his third since December — and he’s two-for-two in top-6 finishes at the API.

Emiliano Grillo ($7,600)

He’s often a victim of one bad round, like a third-round 78 at the 2017 API that doomed his chances at a win. Still, he finished T7 last year after a T17 in his tournament debut in 2016. He’s ninth in SG: Off the Tee and 18th in SG: Putting.   

Kyle Stanley ($7,200)

Shook off a couple of missed cuts with a T25 at the WGC-Mexico, his fifth top 25 of the season. He finished T17 at the 2017 API, part of a resurgent campaign that saw his second win. He’s sixth on Tour in driving accuracy and fourth in GIR.
