*All dollar values according to DraftKings as of 5/29/19
Tiger Woods ($11,200)
As LeBron James would say, Tiger Woods has won this tournament not three times, not four – yes, Woods has won the Memorial five times during his illustrious career. He won three in a row from 1999-2001, with his most recent win coming in 2012. This tournament has always been played at Muirfield Village Golf Club, so needless to say Woods knows this course well. In fact, it was designed by Jack Nicklaus, a guy Woods continues to chase to this day. Woods is the only five-time winner in the history of this PGA event. The best news for DFS players is Woods isn’t even the most expensive player here. That honor belongs to McIlroy ($11,500).
Jordan Spieth ($9,900)
Jordan Spieth got off to an uncharacteristically slow start in the 2019 PGA Tour. He missed the cut altogether in three of his first eight events. But everything started to turn around for Spieth at Augusta National. He finished 21st at the Masters with a final score of five under par. At the PGA Championship, Spieth was even better, finishing third overall. He nearly came away with last week’s Charles Schwab Challenge, eventually coming in eighth. It’s inevitable at this point that Spieth will win an event. It could start with the Memorial Tournament on Sunday. Spieth finished 13th at Muirfield just two seasons ago.
Justin Thomas ($9,300)
A wrist injury canceled Justin Thomas’ plans to contend at the PGA Championship. He entered play as one of the betting favorites, but was a late scratch. Outside of winning a tournament, Thomas has done pretty much everything he can in 2019. He’s finished out of the top 16 in only three of his 11 events this year, including four top-five finishes. Thomas will be featured in the most intriguing group for rounds one and two, alongside McIlroy and Spieth.
Bryson DeChambeau ($8,900)
Bryson DeChambeau offers the ultimate daily fantasy value, especially when considering he is the defending champion. DeChambeau won the Memorial last year by shooting 15 under par. It was the best overall score in the tournament since 2011. The 25-year-old has struggled at his past three tournaments, but does boast an impressive, five top-15 finishes in 2019. At the very least, DeChambeau is worth a spot in your DFS lineup.
Adam Scott ($8,700)
As his 2019 results suggest, Adam Scott is the biggest boom-or-bust player on tour right now. His finishes are all over the place this year. He has missed three cuts and finished top 10 four times. Scott will tee off with Phil Mickelson and Jason Day for the opening two rounds. So, which Scott will show up this week in Ohio? Oddsmakers are hesitant with Scott (+3600), listing him outside of the twelve favorites to win on Sunday.
