It's time to pick your optimal daily fantasy DraftKings golf lineup for this week's tournament (June 15-18), the U.S. Open at Erin Hills inWisconsin. Our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.

Here's what our optimal U.S. Open 2017 lineup looks like:

Dustin Johnson ($12,000) 

His last three U.S. Opens look like this: T4, T2, 1. Add in the fact that Erin Hills is a par-72 for the first time in 25 years, giving Dustin four par 5s to attack, and a U.S. Open repeat (the first since 1989) could be looming. His stumble at the Memorial aside, expect DJ to be far more smash than trash this week.

Adam Scott ($8,800)

Scott's ball-striking is rock-solid right now (second at the St. Jude in strokes gained, tee to green). He produced a T9 and a T4 at the Open in 2014-15, and his T9 at this year's Masters and T6 at The Players show that he still musters the mojo for the big events.

Kevin Kisner ($7,500)

Kisner's playing as well as anyone right now, with a win at Colonial and a T6 at the Memorial in his last two appearances. He's in search of his first major top 10, but he did finish T12 at the Open in 2015. 

Louis Oosthuizen ($7,400)

The sweet-swinging South African is known for his ball-striking, but his underrated short game (second on Tour in scrambling from >30 yards) will serve him well under the unnerving U.S. Open conditions. He has history at the Open (a runner-up at Chambers Bay in 2015). Also finished second at this year's Players. 

Charl Schwartzel ($7,300)

You don't want Charl in charge of your weekly fantasy hopes, but the 2011 Masters champ looks like a sneaky value pick this week. He has two top 10s at U.S. Opens, including a seventh-place finish in 2015. He comes in playing good golf this year, with a solo third at The Masters and a runner-up at St. Jude.

Lee Westwood ($6,800)

Once a perennial threat to contend at majors, Westwood is a bit of a forgotten man these days. But he's six-for-seven in cuts made in the States in 2017, and he's only 14 months removed from yet another major runner-up (2016 Masters). Has made 10 straight cuts in majors.
