Let our fantasy experts help you pick a great golf lineup.
The Fort Worth Invitational golf tournament is set for May 24-27 at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. So 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 Fort Worth Invitational 2018 lineup looks like:
Webb Simpson ($10,200)
The world’s hottest player at the moment, Webb weaved the season’s best performance with his leisurely stroll to a dominant four-shot win at The Players. He’s finished T8 or better in four of his last eight starts, and to top it off, he’s a Colonial ringer — T3 in 2016 and solo fifth last year, when he was the 54-hole leader.
Kevin Kisner ($8,100)
This week’s course horse doesn’t need to Justify his presence on this list (see what we did there?). Kisner is the defending champ and comes in riding a streak of three straight top 10s at Colonial. Last year, he shot a Sunday 66 to beat Jordan Spieth by one shot, leaving him a tidy 28-under at Colonial since 2015.
Zach Johnson ($8,500)
The two-time Colonial winner is the event's money leader and tournament record-holder (21-under in 2010). In other words, ZJ loves him some Hogan’s Alley. He’s a perfect 11-for-11 in cuts with a five-year run from 2009-13 that saw finishes of T9-1-4-1-3. He’s first on Tour in proximity, and he's comfy on Colonial’s bent grass greens.
Chesson Hadley ($8,300)
Not much to show for his three trips to Colonial, but Hadley comes in hot, with six straight top-20 finishes. His stat profile includes these tasty morsels: 4th in SG: Approach the Green and 11th in SG: Total.
Nick Watney ($7,300)
Watney’s risen from the dead with a personal cuts-made streak that has reached 11 and has bumped him from 400th in the world ranking back into the top 100. His T2 at the Wells Fargo a few weeks ago, where he led the field in GIR, was reminiscent of the player who once rose into the World Top 10.
Danny Lee ($7,500)
A contender at Houston and the Heritage before Sunday swan dives, this guy just couldn’t seem to put four rounds together — until The Players, where he held it together to finish T7. Lee brings local knowledge — he’s from nearby Irving — and he’s five-for-five in cuts at Colonial, with finishes of T10 and 6 in the last three years.
