This week, the LPGA Tour presents golf fans with the 2024 JM Eagle LA Championship. Let’s take a look at this week’s event from a Draftkings perspective.

Before I dive into my Draftkings 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 player’s success at this week’s 2024 JM Eagle LA Championship.

Where will the 2024 JM Eagle LA Championship be played?

The 2024 JM Eagle LA Championship will be played at the Wilshire Country Club in Los Angeles, California. The golf course is a par 71 that measures approximately 6,258 yards.

JM Eagle LA Championship Draftkings Picks

Ayaka Furue $10,500

Since the beginning of January, Ayaka Furue has played nine tournaments on the LPGA Tour. In those nine events just mentioned, Furue has accumulated eight top 27 finishes, including a third-place result at the 2024 Blue Bay Championship last month.

Furue also checks the box for me when it comes to key player statistics. Furue is currently ranked third in driving accuracy (87.1%), first in total birdies made (130), seventh in overall scoring average (70.2), and 17th in putting average (28) on the LPGA Tour.

Ayaka Furue has played well at the Wilshire Country Club in the past. More specifically, Furue finished fourth at the 2023 JM Eagle LA Championship.

Maja Stark $8,000

Maja Stark arrives at this week’s event in rather good form. Maja Stark has accumulated two top three finishes in her last three events played on the LPGA Tour, including a second-place result at last week’s 2024 Chevron Championship.

Due to the fact that Maja Stark posted a quality finish at last week’s first major championship of the year I decided to take a hard look at the relevant player data for the event to see how Stark fared relative to the field.

Upon the completion of four rounds of competitive play at the 2024 Chevron Championship, in relation to the field, Maja Stark ranked first in scrambling (85.2%), fifth in driving distance (261.8), and 19th in putting average (1.67).

Jennifer Kupcho $7,800

Jennifer Kupcho arrives at this week’s event on the heels on three consecutive top 23 finishes on the LPGA Tour, including an eighth-place result at the 2024 Ford Championship four weeks ago.

In my opinion, Jennifer Kupcho presents outstanding fantasy value at the affordable Draftkings price of only $7,800.

Marina Alex $7,400

Marina Alex has accumulated three consecutive top 30 finishes on the LPGA Tour, including an 18th place result at the 2024 T-Mobile Match Play Championship three weeks ago.

It should also be noted that Marina Alex finished tenth at the 2022 JM Eagle LA Championship.

Additional golfers I like to play well this week (Draftkings price noted): Xiyu Lin $10,700: Hae-Ran Ryu $9,100: Hannah Green $8,400: Georgia Hall $7,800.
