This week’s fantasy golf selections will save you some cash!
The tour stops at TPC River Highlands this week for the Travelers Championship. Founded in 1928, the course has undergone a number of transformations to arrive at its current, 72.7 course difficulty rated form. The par 17 masterpiece features a slope rating of 131, and tends to favor long-hitters and risk takers. Expect this week’s event to be heavily patronized, as the tournament is second in attendance behind only the Phoenix Open.
These fantasy golf selections listed below provide plenty of salary relief so you can afford any high-priced stud you want. The key to success in fantasy golf is pairing cheaper players who make the cut with top names who finish well. Let’s take a look at this week’s fantasy golf selections.
DraftDay offers three great tournaments at differing buy-in levels so you can enjoy fantasy golf action that fits your budget. My favorite contest is the $109 Angry Birdies, which sports a $750 first place prize! The $15 Mulligan and $2.20 Big Easy are great as well, and perfect for entering more than one lineup to diversify your fantasy golf selections. What are you waiting for? Join a contest now!
Fantasy Golf Selections - Travelers Championships
All player salaries listed are for DraftDay pricing.
J.J Henry $10,200 - There is just something about this course that J.J loves. The last cut he missed at this event was in 2002, and at this price I don’t know what else you can ask for. 11 straight cuts made at TPC River Highlands with six top-25 finishes. The price is right!
Brandt Snedeker $15,900 - This is a pick straight from the Vegas odds. Sneeds is a top-10 favorite to win the tournament at a very reduced price tag, and he is listed as the 24th most expensive player. I have no reason to argue with Vegas on this one.
Erik Compton $15,600 - He’s coming off a second place finish at the US Open, and has quietly put up three top-five finishes in his last nine events. The price tag won’t break the bank, and he has great upside for tournaments.
Charley Hoffman $17,100 - With four consecutive cuts made at this event, including a T7 and T2 in his last two attempts, Hoffman is an excellent salary sink. 51st place is his worst finish in his last nine tournaments, and that makes him a very safe pick for cash games with top-five upside.
Marc Leishman $16,100 - Leishman won the event in 2012, and he defended his title with a top 30 finish last year. It also doesn’t hurt that he has three top-25 finishes in his last four events.
