Last week I shared my fantasy golf picks for the John Deere Classic. While I didn't win any grand prizes, I finished in the top 20% of all players in the PGA Yahoo! Cup. I'm back this week to share my picks for the Open Championship, and to alert you of two free fantasy golf freerolls you can compete against me in.
PGA Yahoo! Cup $1,000 Freeroll
The $50,000 PGA Yahoo! Cup is a free fantasy league from Yahoo! that runs throughout the season and awards the top overall player $5,000. Each tournament also includes a $1,000 prize pool, including this week's Open Championship competition.
I love my Open picks for the PGA Yahoo! Cup although I don't have the overall favorite (12-1) on my team, Dustin Johnson. I was able to fit three potential winners (Fleetwood, McIlroy, Rose) on one roster with several strong darkhorse candidates. I was ecstatic to get Lahiri at $21, and when he's on top of his game, Zach Johnson is a contender in any tournament.
If you'd like to join me, please do so here. The competiiton is free to enter and this is not a referral link. Registration is open until Thursday morning.
$5,000 DraftKings Freeroll
With overall favorite Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy leading the way, my roster is similar to my PGA Yahoo! Cup lineup but packing a powerful punch if everything goes right. I substituted Justin Rose for Dustin Johnson, and could not afford to keep Tommy Fleetwood with Roray McIlroy also in this lineup.
If you'd like to join me, please do so here. The competiiton is free to enter and this is not a referral link. You will need to sign up, and then click on the "entry fee" text to find the free PGA contest. It's a $5,000 freeroll and it just takes a few minutes to enter your lineup.
