This week, the PGA Tour presents the 2024 Genesis Scottish Open. Let’s take a look at this week’s event from a Draftkings perspective.

Before I dive into my DFS player selections for this tournament let’s review the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a golfer’s success at this week’s 2024 Genesis Scottish Open.

Where will the 2024 Genesis Scottish Open be played?

The 2024 Genesis Scottish Open will be played at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick, East Lothian, Scotland. The golf course is a par 70 that measures approximately 7,237 yards.

The Renaissance Club has been the host golf course for the Genesis Scottish Open since 2019.

Rory McIlroy won the 2023 Genesis Scottish Open with a cumulative four round score of 15 under par.

Will the Genesis Scottish Open have a traditional cut after two rounds?

The Genesis Scottish Open will have a field of 156 players to start the tournament on Thursday. Upon the completion of two rounds, a cut will occur. The top 65 golfers (including ties) will make the cut.

Genesis Scottish Open Key Player Statistics

  • Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
  • Strokes Gained: Approach
  • Strokes Gained: Putting
  • GIR (greens in regulation)
  • Bogey Avoidance
  • Strokes Gained: Ball Striking
  • Birdie of Better Percentage

I wanted to emphasize that the purpose of this article is not to provide an exact DFS lineup.

Having stated that, this article will provide multiple player options in an effort to assist the reader in generating a unique lineup that will hopefully have the potential to win a DraftKings GPP (guaranteed prize pool) contest!

2024 Genesis Scottish Open Draftkings DFS Picks

Tommy Fleetwood $9,900

Tommy Fleetwood arrives at this week’s tournament on the heels of three consecutive top 20 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a 15th place result at the 2024 Travelers Championship three weeks ago.

Tommy Fleetwood certainly checks the box for me when it comes to previous event/course history. Since 2019, Fleetwood has played the Genesis Scottish Open a total of four times. In those four tournaments just noted, Fleetwood accumulated three top six finishes, including a fourth-place result in 2022.

Ryan Fox $7,100

Ryan Fox has accumulated three top 17 finishes in his last seven tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including a seventh-place result at the 2024 RBC Canadian Open five weeks ago.

Ben Griffin $6,600

Since the beginning of April, Ben Griffin has played ten events on the PGA Tour. In those ten tournaments just noted, Ben Griffin has accumulated five top 16 finishes, including an impressive second-place finish at last week’s 2024 John Deere Classic.

Griffin finished 25th at the 2024 Genesis Scottish Open.

Jordan L. Smith $6,600

Last week, the talented Englishman fired a third round 66 at the 2024 BMW International Open en route to an eventual second place finish.

Due to Jordan Smith’s quality runner-up finish at the 2024 BMW International Open I decided to take a hard look at the relevant player statistics for the tournament to see how Smith fared relative to the field.

Upon the completion of four rounds of competitive play at the 2024 BMW International Open, in relation to the field, Jordan L. Smith ranked fourth in GIR (greens in regulation-77.8%), seventh in strokes gained putting (1.74), fifth in strokes gained tee to green (2.189), and 16th in strokes gained approach (1.114).

It is noteworthy that Jordan L. Smith has posted a good result at the Renaissance Club in the past. Smith finished 12th at the 2023 Genesis Scottish Open.

Additional golfers I like to perform well this week (Draftkings price noted): Tom Kim $9,500: Sungjae Im $8,500: Robert Macintyre $7,800: Seamus Power $6,400: Sean Crocker $5,500.
