We have two golf lineups to put together this week with the BMW PGA Championship and Fort Worth Invitational taking place. This article we’ll start with the bigger tournament and put our lineup together on DraftKings. With a salary of $50,000 and six slots to fill, here goes. Last week was a forgettable 281.50 points, as we just can’t catch a break on some of the smaller long shot players with cheap prices.
Kiradech Aphibarnrat, $7,900 - Kiradech Aphibarnrat is coming off a 90.5 performance at the Players Championship and has posted 90-plus fantasy points in two of the last five weeks. Aphibarnrat now heads to the BMW PGA Championship where he has a top-20 finish in two of his last three appearances.

Lee Westwood, $7,600 - Lee Westwood hasn’t had a great season to say the least, but he’s one of the more experienced players in this event and has finished 15th or better in five of his last eight appearances. Westwood has also finished 38th or better in 16 of 24 appearances at this event. Not sure how you leave this guy off with such a cheap price.
Rafael Cabrera-Bello, $8,700 - Rafael Cabrera-Bello is coming off a 94.5 fantasy point performance and has been one of the hotter golfers over the last month or so. Cabrera-Bello has also posted top-25 finishes in four of his last seven appearances at the BMW PGA Championship. Cabrera-Bello is a guy you know who is going to make the cut and put up a solid showing. Safe, somewhat cheap pick.
Martin Kaymer, $7,600 - Martin Kaymer isn’t a fantasy player you want to include considering he hasn’t even sniffed 60 points since the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Buy low, sell high my friends. Kaymer has top-20 finishes in four of his last six appearances at the BMW PGA Championship, which includes a seventh place finish in 2016. Another cheap player with an impressive history at this event.
Shane Lowry, $9,100 - Shane Lowry has produced 72 or more fantasy points in two of the last three weeks and heads to an event that he’s comfortable at. Lowry finished sixth at the BMW PGA Championship last year and has finished 12th or better in five of his last seven appearances. Again, another safe player who has a track record of showing up at this event.
Matthew Fitzpatrick, $9,000 - Matthew Fitzpatrick has bounced back from that stretch of missing the cut and has had some decent showings, especially that top-15 performance at the RBC Heritage. Fitzpatrick finished 12th at this event last year and has an average finish of 29.5 in two appearances. Expect Fitzpatrick to top-70 fantasy points for the third straight week.
Remaining Salary: $100
