Some Amateur Advice
A few things I’ve picked up while playing DFS during the first few PGA events this year and reading a few articles over the past few days.
Check the weather. Strong winds could affect some of the players on Thursday and Friday. Some players may have better playing conditions than others.
Consider the cut. The Masters has a smaller field but only the top 50 players + ties (and anyone within 10 strokes of the leader) make it through to play the last two rounds. If you pick golfers that don’t make the cut they won’t score you any points in rounds 3 and 4.
Match your strategy to the contest. There are different kinds of contests on DraftKings. The general DFS strategy is this: If you are playing a tournament such as the Free $100K contest, you probably want to pick some high risk/reward golfers because only a small percent of contestants win a prize. If you join 50/50s or double ups, you can pick golfers with less risk and a lower projected ceiling because you only have to place in the top half to win a prize.
It’s the first Major. The Masters seems to be a lot different than other PGA events. First time participants generally don’t do as well as players that have played here before.
Have fun and good luck!
