This Sunday, golf fans will be presented with the final round of the PGA Championship. Let’s take a look at the final round of this event from a Draftkings perspective.

Before I discuss my Draftkings player selections, let’s review where the final round of the PGA Championship will be played.

The final round of the 2024 PGA Championship will be played at Valhalla Country Club in Louisville, Kentucky. The golf course is a par 71 that measures approximately 7,609 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 final round of the 2024 PGA Championship.

Draftkings Final Round Showdown Picks

Collin Morikawa $10,000

Collin Morikawa arrives at this week’s event on the heels of three consecutive top 16 finishes on the PGA Tour, including an impressive third place result at the 2024 Masters Tournament five weeks ago.

Morikawa also checks the box for me when it comes to key player statistics. In relation to this week’s 2024 PGA Championship field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Collin Morikawa ranks 12th in GIR (greens in regulation), 13th in birdie or better percentage, sixth in bogey avoidance, and first in driving accuracy.

Collin Morikawa has posted a quality result at this week’s major championship event in the past. More specifically, Morikawa won the 2020 PGA Championship.

Upon the completion of this afternoon’s third round at the 2024 PGA Championship, Collin Morikawa is currently tied for first place with a score of 15 under par.

Justin Thomas $8,800

The talented American has accumulated two consecutive top 21 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a fifth-place result at the 2024 RBC Heritage four weeks ago.

Due to Justin Thomas’s quality finish at the 2024 RBC Heritage I decided to take a hard look at the relevant player statistics for the event to see how Thomas fared relative to the field.

Upon the completion of four rounds of competitive play at the 2024 RBC Heritage, in relation to the field, Justin Thomas ranked ninth in strokes gained tee to green (4.7), 15th in strokes gained putting (2.7), ninth in birdie or better percentage (2.9), and second in bogey avoidance (1).

Similar to Morikawa, Justin Thomas has won this week’s PGA Tour event previously. Justin Thomas won the 2022 PGA Championship.

Shane Lowry $7,600

The 2019 Open Championship has accumulated five top 29 finishes in his last eight tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including a third-place result at last week’s 2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational in March.

In relation to this week’s 2024 PGA Championship field, in the last 50 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Shane Lowry ranks seventh in strokes gained approach, 16th in driving accuracy, and ninth in strokes gained tee to green.

In summary, I think Shane Lowry is the best fantasy value of any golfer on this DFS slate with a Draftkings price of only $7,600.

Additional golfers I like to perform well in the final round (Draftkings price noted): Bryson DeChambeau $9,800: Sahith Theegala $9,100: Keegan Bradley $7,500: Dean Burmester $7,500.
