DraftKings Fantasy Golf Picks: 2015 Quicken Loans National
The PGA Tour makes its first-ever tour stop at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va. for this week's 2015 Quicken Loans National. We've got your DraftKings fantasy golf picks ready to go, so let's cut to the chase. Justin Rose is the defending champion when this tournament was held at Congressional Country Club in 2014. He has certainly hit his groove this season, carding a strong finish at the British Open two weeks ago. He's done more than enough to earn his spot on your fantasy golf roster.
Will Wilcox and Russell Knox might seem like surprising picks this week, but both have been on fire as of late. Wilcox was a runner-up at the Barbasol a couple weeks ago and is leading the Tour in all-around scoring. Similarly, Knox has posted four top-25's in his last five starts, is tenth on Tour in greens-in-regulation and isn't afraid of stronger-field events.
Chesson Hadley and Blaine Barber are far from household names, but both have put together strong fantasy golf point finishes throughout the year. Hadley is averaging over 58 fantasy points per tournament, having made 17 of 25 cuts this year. Barber is a completely longshot this week, but also averages over 50 fantasy points and has four top-1o's in 2015.
Then of course we have Tiger Woods. I'm telling everybody right now: Tiger will win a golf tournament this season. He may only be averaging 43.3 fantasy points this season and has only made five of nine cuts, but his performance at The Greenbrier showed that there's still something left in the tank. Granted, he played like absolute garbage at St. Andrews at the British, but he's won the Quicken Loans National twice in his career (2009 and 2012, both at Congressional).
