DFS Fantasy Golf Picks: 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational

Congratulations the the Canadian out of Moose Jaw, Adam Hadwin for taking home the 2017 Valspar Championship. Hadwin would have been slotted in the “Sleeper” category, giving his lucky DFS owners a win by only costing $6,800. If his hometown wasn’t enough to amuse you, then his golf game probably did. He played well, but to be 4 strokes up on the rest of the competition and win by one stroke wasn’t a picture perfect finish, but I digress. With the Valspar in the books, we now have this week’s tournament, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, at Bay Hill. It’s going to be exciting for everybody, as we honor a legend and pioneer to the game of golf. Every player that steps on the course Thursday will be playing for Arnold Palmer, and every fan there will be a part of Arnie’s Army.

Here are this week’s picks you should consider adding to your DFS roster:

Top Picks

  • Henrik Stenson ($11,500)
    Stenson tied for 7th last week at Valspar, and T3 last year the Bay Hill. For the second week in a row, he’s made my roster.
  • Jason Day ($10,600)
    With a win last year at Bay Hill, J.Day is going to try and repeat what he accomplished last year when he shot 17-under. It’s a no brainer to add the world’s No. 2 golfer on your roster this week. He’s worth every penny.

Middle of the road

  • Kevin Chappell ($8,000)
    Chappell came in second last year in this tournament, shooting 16-under — one under Day. He’s proved to be a safe pick this week at Bay Hill.
  • Tony Finau ($7,600)
    The Utah native proved to me last week he has what it takes to compete with the best. The shot from the bunker into the cup was immaculate. If his game continues to shine like that, he’ll continue to stay on my roster.

Sleepers

  • John Daly ($6,700)
    I know I know he’s been playing god awful lately, but keep in mind that it’s fucking John Daly! The old man can still grip and rip the ball. If he can maintain his short game this week he’s one to have on your radar at his cheap price. If this were a drinking contest, he would be in the ‘Top Picks” category.
  • Chris Kirk ($6,800)
    T12th last year at Bay Hill, Chris Kirk is one to take the risk on for the money. In high hopes he has another week like last year, he’ll put up good numbers on your line-up, for such a short price.

Good luck and be sure to check back next week to keep making money on the PGA Tour.
