Fantasy Golf Tournament Preview- DP World Challenge (European Tour)

OVERVIEW
It finally worked with Tommy! I’m not one for recaps from last week, but it was a pretty good week and backing Tommy event after event finally paid off and he was fairly low owned as expected so I hope you all followed our advice. Moving onto this week, we head to the United Arab Emirates and Jumeriah Golf Estates. The course is loooooooong, and it doesn’t play shorter like last week either. Par 5 scoring is very important, as is being able to hit long iron shots into these generous greens. It’s a bomber track, but bunters have been able to sneak into the Top 10 and even win this event in the past (see: Matthew Fitzpatrick). Ball striking reigns supreme as usual, and of course whoever gets hot with the putter will jump up the leaderboard, but the primary key to success is the same every week. The field is actually much stronger this week than last, in my opinion – I have not compared the actual strength of fields yet so that should make it a little bit tougher for whoever ends up winning this thing as they’ll likely be Rory or Rahm, or they’ll be chased by either or both come Sunday. We’ve got another no-cut event, so get crazy with your lineups if you can. If you’re new to MME, try the $.25 contest and see if your process can work (heck, even if you’re not new to MME, you should probably be doing this anyways to help sharpen your game). I’ve listed plenty of really cheap options who I think have a shot at finishing inside the Top 30 in order to get the top 2 players in pricing into lineups together and with my selected core plays.
