Jimmy Walker may be the safest pick possible.
Trying to find your optimal DraftKings lineup for this week's (Jan. 12-15) golf tournament: the 2017 Sony Open in Hawaii? Our fantasy-golf experts are ready to help.
Here's what our optimal lineup looks like.
Justin Thomas ($10,500)
Thomas' last six finishes: T6, T8, 1, T23, T4, 1. If he were any hotter, his caddie would need an asbestos bib.
Jimmy Walker ($9,900)
The reigning PGA Champion won the Sony in 2014 and '15 and finished T13 last year. Just about the safest play on the board.
Brandt Snedeker ($9,700)
As you can see, we're suggesting that you front-load your roster this week. Sneds lost this event in a playoff last year and is coming off a solid showing at Kapalua.
Jerry Kelly ($6,800)
Kelly is old enough for the Champions Tour (he turned 50 in November), but don't let that dissuade you from a sneaky value pick. He has four top-15 finishes here in the last five years.
David Toms ($6,700)
Another Champions-eligible vet who can't be counted on for weekly consistency, Toms still shows game in brief bursts. He won the Sony in 2006 and finished T-2 in '09.
Ricky Barnes ($6,300)
Barnes opened with a 63 at the 2016 Sony before fading, and his four top 10s in 2016 marked his best showing since 2010.
