The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open golf tournament is set for Nov. 2-5 at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. 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 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open 2017 lineup looks like:
Tony Finau ($11,700)
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that we’re riding the Tony Train this season. He plays great almost everywhere, but he comes up sevens in Vegas, with a 68.33 scoring average in 12 rounds at TPC Summerlin. His last five finishes: T7 (BMW), T7 (Tour), 2 (Safeway), T26 (CJ Cup), T11 (HSBC). Do the Vegas thing and bet the college fund.
Luke List ($8,300)
Luke’s on the short list of smart fantasy plays this week. He’s playing great right now — T13 and T5 in his last two starts — and he makes a lot of birdies (T11 on Tour in 2016-17). Finished T15 here last year.
Smylie Kaufman ($8,200)
Kaufman was all smiles here in 2015 after a closing 61 to win. He’s also coming off the second-best finish of his career — a T4 at the Sanderson Farms.
Nick Taylor ($7,600)
He’s risen 234 spots in the World Golf Ranking since January and has a T9, T13 and T23 to show for his first three starts of 2017-18. Three-for-three in made cuts at the Shriners. A solid under-the-radar play moving forward.
Scott Piercy ($7,400)
It’s the hometown stop for the Vegas-born Piercy, who would love to put on a show in front of the home folks. He usually does — six top-25 finishes here since 2009.
Ricky Barnes ($6,800)
His Sunday 66 at the Sanderson was the best round of the day and gave him a back-door top 10. Maybe he’s figured something out after a rough patch and is back to the top-20 form he was showing in August.
