Let our fantasy experts help you pick a great golf lineup.
The Tour Championship golf tournament is set for Sept. 21-24 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga. So it's time tostart picking your optimal DraftKings fantasy golf lineup. Fortunately, our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.
Here's what our best Tour Championship 2017 lineup looks like:
Jordan Spieth ($11,600)
Let’s not overthink this. Spieth’s average finish since June: 7.7, with two wins and two seconds. First on Tour in birdie average, scoring average and SG: approach-the-green. A horse for every course, including East Lake.
Justin Rose ($8,900)
Rose is in full bloom at a lucrative spot on the schedule, with finishes of T10, T10 and T2 in the three playoff events. He has three runner-up finishes and eight top 10s in 2017, but no wins. Not yet, anyway. In his last four Tour Championships, his worst finish is sixth.
Marc Leishman ($8,400)
We were on the mark with Leishman last week; hope you were listening. He dominated at the BMW with a 23-under finish a week after a solo third at the Dell. He could make it a tidy trifecta with a win at East Lake. The only caveat: It’s only his second appearance at the Tour Championship.
Kevin Chappell ($7,600)
Chappell has made it back to East Lake a year after losing the Tour Championship in a playoff to Rory McIlroy, and he’s more than merely a horse for this course. He has four top 15s in six starts since a MC at the British Open, including a T6 at the Northern Trust.
Daniel Berger ($6,900)
He’s sort of limping into East Lake, but he’s there, and he’s not far removed from some spectacular golf (win at the St. Jude, second at the Travelers). Plus, he’s posted top-15 finishes in the last two Tour Championships. Just needs a few putts to fall (eighth in SG: approach-the-green).
Gary Woodland ($6,400)
This is Woodland’s fifth trip to East Lake for the season ender, and he’s building a solid Tour Championship resume, with a T10 in 2016 and a T9 in 2014. Eighth on Tour in greens in regulation. We won’t mention his putting stats, but you never know when a guy can get hot.
