The Butterfield Bermuda Championship is set for Oct. 28-31 at Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton, Bermuda. 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 Butterfield Bermuda Championship lineup looks like in this week's golfer predictions:
Matt Fitzpatrick ($11,000)
He's still somewhat unfamiliar to American audiences — although they no doubt enjoyed his goose egg at the Ryder Cup — but Fitzpatrick is building himself a nice little resume. His recent win at the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters was his seventh career win on the European Tour, and his combination of recent form and all-around skill set makes him a threat to capture his first PGA Tour win this week. Fitz is accurate off the tee and should be at home on Port Royal's Bermuda greens.
Danny Willett ($9,300)
Once a wanderer in golf's wilderness, Willett is knocking on the door of the World Top 100 once again thanks to his win at the Alfred Dunhill on the Euro Tour a few weeks ago, a showing that he followed up with a T21 at the Shriners. Golf is a game of confidence, and the 2016 Masters champ is finding his once again.
Ryan Armour ($8,100)
Armour fits the profile we're building this week: crafty veteran, short but accurate off the tee, history of success at Port Royal. Armour has back-to-back T8 finishes at this event, and he's historically played his best golf in the low-pressure "silly season" events. Look for Armour to pocket some FedExCup points that could come in handy in 10 months or so.
Graeme McDowell ($7,200)
McDowell is making his tournament debut this week, but he does have a history here — he played in the 2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf as that year's U.S. Open champion. The popular Northern Irishman has fallen from those lofty heights, but he's still capable of occasional contention, and he's only 42 and hasn't yet aged out of consideration.
Brian Gay ($7,100)
Gay was already thinking toward his impending Champions Tour debut — he turns 50 in 2022 — when he won this event last year for his first Tour win in almost eight years. He squeezed into a playoff with a birdie on the 72nd hole and then fended off Wyndham Clark for career win No. 3. Crafty veterans are right at home at this event, and Gay is Exhibit A: He finished T3 here in 2019 prior to his win last year.
Jason Dufner ($7,200)
Don't look now, but Duf is riding a streak of five straight made cuts, with four top-30 finishes. May not sound like much, but we welcome any signs of life from the 2013 PGA Champion.
