2015 OHL Classic at Mayakoba daily fantasy golf picks, strategy & values


The 2015 - 2016 PGA Tour season continues this week at the 2015 OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Charley Hoffman is your defending champion, but he'll have to hold off a flurry of big names if he wants to repeat. We've got your DraftKings fantasy golf picks ready. Let's get crackin'.


Winning in daily fantasy sports on sites like DraftKings or Fanduel is next to impossible, especially if you only enter one lineup per contest. The sheer volume of players who enter each contest total the tens of thousands, shrinking your odds of winning anything -- especially a profit -- minuscule. As long as you are willing to accept that risk, then DFS contests can be a lot of fun.

As we’ve discussed on multiple podcast episodes and posts, strategy is everything when it comes to a massive fantasy golf system like DraftKings. Pat Mayo over at RotoExperts.com is the best at explaining all the stats you should consider when making your picks, which boil down to:

  1. Strokes Gained: Putting
  2. Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green

Aside from that, I like to play the “hot hands” every week; those players who have placed in the Top-10 or higher in recent tournament weeks, whenever possible.

Will this strategy work? Or will I get shutout of the money again this week? Only time will tell.

Best Value

Brendan Steele ($9,900) has played quite well at Mayakoba, having finished T-16 and third in his last two starts. Steele is averaging a whopping 87.2 DFS points this year in three events played and already has a top-10 tournament finish under his belt.
