It's time to pick your optimal daily fantasy DraftKings golf lineup for this week's PGA tournament (July 6-9), the Greenbrier Classic at the Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.

Here's what our optimal Greenbrier Classic 2017 lineup looks like:

Phil Mickelson ($10,400)

You've probably seen the commercials where Lefty touts the Greenbrier lifestyle and says he's bought property there. Look for Mickelson to make himself right at home this week with little bro Tim on the bag. He's made 17 cuts in a row and is overdue for a top-3 finish.

Charles Howell III ($9,700)

His playoff loss at the Quicken Loans was a short-term disappointment, but the big picture is golden for CH3, who has enjoyed a resurgence this year and comes in riding a wave of confidence. Like Lefty, he has yet to miss a cut in 2017, with two runner-ups and two other top 10s. 

Keegan Bradley ($9,400)

He's on a mini-roll, with a T5 at the Quicken Loans and a T8 at the Travelers to show for his last two appearances. Like the courses at those two events, the par-70 Old White course rewards ball-striking; Bradley is 11th in strokes gained off the tee.

Harris English ($7,000)

The guy's got skills, even if the results don't show it. He's made four of his last five cuts, and his solid short game (35th in strokes gained around the green) will serve him well this week.  

Stewart Cink ($6,900)

With rankings of 13th in greens in regulation, 20th in strokes gained: putting and 17th in adjusted scoring, Cink has risen from the ashes this season. The renaissance rolls on with his time-honored strategy of fairways, greens and holed putts. 

Spencer Levin ($6,500)

Even at No. 296 in the world, Levin looks like a steal at this value in a weak-field event. He's coming off a T5 at the Quicken Loans, where his third-round 65 got him into contention — which is all we ask from our No. 6 pick.
