Jon Rahm ($11,300)– Rahm has actually been the very best golfer on the planet over the previous month, from controling the Memorial prior to being forced to withdraw to then returning and winning the U.S. Open and after that finishing leading 10 at the Scottish Open recently. Hes worth every cent at this price if you can fit him in your lineup.
Rory McIlroy ($10,900)– If we get to see excellent Rory this week at the British Open, then he could end up being terrific worth at this price. However, its super tough to believe that hes in line for that. The skill is never in question but the game today is. Its starting to look like the win at Quail Hollow is the outlier and not a recover.
Brooks Koepka ($10,700)– We understand Koepka seems to constantly ramp his video game up for majors and this is no exception. His video game might be well matched for an Open Championship also. His capability to just not make errors must match Royal St. Georges and make him worth paying up into this tier.
Dustin Johnson ($10,400)– Much like with Rory, the talent with DJ is obvious and we saw how dominant he is when hes on in 2015. Plus, he was T5 in 2011 at this location. His video game, on the other hand, has been sub-standard over the last few months and, with so much talent and worth on the DraftKings slate, Im probably passing here.
Xander Schauffele ($10,000)– Schauffele is most likely to be an incredibly popular play on DraftKings at this price at the minimum for this range. That might turn me off of him to some degree but theres likewise a factor hes going to be that popular. His game needs to play well here and he might pay off huge time.
