Fantasy Golf Tournament Preview- A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier

OVERVIEW
The PGA Tour returns to action this week as we kickoff the 2019-2020 season. The Old White Course hosts the event again, this time with a new date as the event used to be played in July. The course is a short, parkland style layout with both Par 5’s on the inward nine. The greens are heavily bunkered, which is the primary defense against mega low scores as the course plays at altitude (meaning the ball flies further). Over the past five years (excluding 2016 when the course was flooded) most of the winners of this event have been longshots (longer than 90/1 on betting books) and this event has been the epitome of “whoever has a hot putter wins” so don’t be afraid to play guys who fit the course needs and are cheap (and you’ll notice some of these names in the course horses section as they haven’t played well leading into this event). As for DFS purposes, DraftKings has actually provided us with a decent selection of contests this week, which is shocking considering the NFL kicked off their season last week and we know what usually happens to their GOLF product during this time of year. Speaking of the NFL season, if you haven’t been paying attention, Jeff & Zach launched their new NFL site over at footballinsideredge.com where they post all things NFL (very similar to the GOLF product). There are several types of subscription methods to suit all of your NFL DFS (and season-long) needs!
