PGA DFS Strategy

Embrace a “bombs away” strategy, prioritizing long-ball hitters with accuracy and a knack for getting hot on approach shots. Given the wide fairways and emphasis on distance, these golfers will tee it high and let it fly. Avoid over-committing to any single player, and consider fading the chalk to differentiate your lineup and gain an edge over the competition.
