The final major of the year tees off this week as the best golfers in the world (and Tiger Woods) converge onto Whistling Straits in Wisconsin for the 2015 PGA Championship. There are many DraftKings fantasy golf pick values in play this week, so let’s get right into it.

Rory McIlroy may be in the field this week, but Jordan Spieth is easily the favorite heading in, having won The Masters and US Open earlier this season. He’s the highest-priced pick this week ($12,500) and deservedly so. Luckily, there are multiple high-value “scrubs” at DraftKings this week, so go ahead and add Spieth to your roster free of worry.
Louis Oosthuizen has fallen back to earth a bit since his strong showing at the British Open, but his moderately-high DraftKings salary ($9,100) is still worth your consideration for the PGA. King Louis seems to only show up at majors, and his mastery of the links-style Chambers Bay and St. Andrews should be more than enough to convince you he’ll do the same at Whistling Straits this week.
James Morrison is a name more common on the European Tour, which may play into his insane value of $7,200 this week. Morrison has only played one PGA Tour event this year but managed 15 birdies and 49 pars, leading to a strong 70.3 fantasy point average in that start. He’s got one win on the Euro Tour this year — The Spanish Open in May — and has three straight top-25 finishes in his last three starts.
Danny Lee is another value pick at $7,100 despite his strong showing at last week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational (T-6). He has a streak of five top-25 finishes in his last six events, including his first career PGA Tour win at The Greenbrier in a playoff. He did miss the cut at last month’s British Open, however, which begs the question on how he’ll hold up in the spotlight of a major.
How in the world is Patrick Reed priced at just $7,600 this week? The polarizing PGA youngster has made 20 of 22 cuts this year including a win in Hawaii back in January. He’s averaged over 75 fantasy points per tournament start. He’s got four top-10’s this year. You’ll be stupid not to put him on your DraftKings roster for the year’s last major.
Finally, Brendan Steele might be the ‘steal’ of the week. At only $6,500 in DraftKings dollars, you’re getting top-value for Steele’s four top-10’s, 16 eagles, 286 birdies and 17-of-20 made cuts this year. No, he probably won’t win the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday, but Steele is a lock to make the weekend.
