Fantasy golf is quickly becoming one of the most enjoyable ways to play daily fantasy sports. The concept is super simple. Draft 6 golfers either under a salary cap or via a pick’em style tournament and have them rack up points over the course of the weeks PGA tournament. You can play daily style fantasy golf at DraftKings, DraftStreet and DraftDay. My personal favorite is DraftKings because you can find a ton of contests to enter, big prize pools and a higher scoring experience than DraftStreet.

Strategic Adjustments / Considerations for Winning PGA at Different Sites
I do most of my fantasy golf playing on DraftKings. I have written a handful of fantasy PGA strategy articles that you can find as well as an on-going weekly fantasy golf preview as I play virtually every week. I have recently began to play a little bit on Victiv because of their unique draft 7 but only play your top 5. Here are some quick tips for all sites.
- You want all your golfers to make the cut. They score points on a hole by hole basis so the more holes they play the higher they score. This is key.
- You need par-breakers at all sites. Especially Victiv as you only get points on a hole by hole basis. Finish does not matter on Victiv so buying par-breaking golfers who make the cut is primary importance.
- You would love to pick the winner, especially at DraftKings and DraftDay. Here you get points for your finish position. Victiv you do not care.
- The biggest tournaments, by far are at DraftKings. I play virtually every week in the weekly $2 PGA Chipshot (Spry13) and you can see my weekly golf picks.
If you are interested in playing, visit one of the three sites listed above and get in the game. Line up’s will lock early on Thursday mornings for that weeks games.
