Let our fantasy experts help you pick a great golf lineup
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament is set for Feb. 7-10 at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass HillGolf Club and Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course on California's Monterey Peninsula. 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 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am 2019 lineup looks like:
Dustin Johnson ($11,400)
If you're going to blow the bank with your first pick, you better make it count, so how about a guy who's a virtual lock to be on the leaderboard? DJ has won this event twice and has seven top 5s in his last 11 appearances. Our only enemy this week is jet lag; Johnson spent this past weekend winning the Saudi International.
Shane Lowry ($8,800)
This is the first we're seeing of Lowry here in America this season, but he's been busy, winning in Abu Dhabi and contending in Dubai. He's four-for-four in cuts made here, but we like him to do a little more than make the cut this week.
Brandt Snedeker ($8,200)
Our course horse theme at the top of the board continues with Sneds, another two-time winner here (2013, 2015). His always-lethal putting stroke is never more deadly than it is on Pebble's Poa annua greens. Hasn't missed a cut since July.
Kevin Na ($7,700)
You always hold your breath a little bit with this guy in anticipation of a meltdown, but when things are right, he's capable of contending. He has two top 5s in the last six years at the AT&T Pebble Beach, and he's fourth on Tour in SG: Around-the-Green, a useful skill this week given Pebble's small targets.
Kevin Streelman ($7,300)
This pick is not based on recent form (don't ask — it's ugly). Instead, it's based on Streelman's stellar record at Pebble of late. He's finished in the top 15 at the AT&T Pebble Beach in each of the last three years, including a solo sixth last year.
Ho-sung Choi ($6,400)
No doubt you've seen this guy's insane swing, and if you haven't, Google him now. This viral sensation is making his PGA Tour debut this week on a sponsor's invitation with a follow-through that would embarrass the geezers down at the local muni. We don't expect much from him this week; picking him just gives us an excuse to follow the circus.
