This Thursday, the PGA Tour presents the first round of the 2024 Masters Tournament. Let’s take a look at this prestigious event from a DFS perspective.

Before I discuss my Draftkings player selections, let’s take a look at where the first round of the Masters Tournament will be played.

The 2024 Masters Tournament will be played at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. The golf course is a par 72 that measures approximately 7,555 yards.

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!

For those readers who are not aware, the rules and scoring for DraftKings single round showdown contests are vastly different than the traditional classic contests offered by the platform.

If you need to review the specific rules for the single round showdown contests feel free to check out the DraftKings website.

Here are my DraftKings player selections for the first round of the 2024 Masters Tournament.
