Let our experts help you build a great lineup
Trying to find your optimal DraftKings lineup for this week's (Feb. 23-26) golf tournament: the Honda Classic at the PGA National Resort & Spa (Champion Course) in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.? Our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.
Here's what our optimal lineup looks like.
Adam Scott ($12,200)
We thought that Scott would be less great without the long putter. Proving that length isn't everything, he leads the Tour in strokes gained, putting. The defending Honda champ has a streak of eight rounds of par or better at PGA National.
Russell Knox ($9,000)
Knox has two top-3 finishes in three Honda appearances. Until a missed cut at Phoenix, he had yet to finish outside the top 20 this season. We'll assume Phoenix was an outlier.
Luke Donald ($7,600)
Luke's not the force he once was — remember when he was No. 1 in the world? — but he comes in with consecutive top 25s and has a solid history here (four top 10s).
Scott Brown ($7,400)
Brown cashes checks with regularity (seven made cuts in a row). He is coming off a T2 at the Genesis Open and finished T10 at the Honda last year.
Graeme McDowell ($7,300)
It's been a struggle for McDowell over the last year or so, but that just means he can be had on the cheap this week. He had a T13 in Dubai a couple weeks ago and finished fifth at the Honda last year.
Ernie Els ($6,400)
Once the gold standard among players not named Tiger, the four-time major winner can be found in the discount bin these days. He lives in the Palm Beach area, so it's a homecoming of sorts, and he did have a T13 in Qatar recently.
