As the FedExCup Playoffs come to an exciting close, the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia, is set to determine the ultimate champion. The tournament takes place on a 7,346-yard par 70 course featuring Bermuda grass greens. With a no-cut format, the field has been narrowed down to the top 30 golfers from the previous week's 50.
This year, the tournament introduces the FedExCup Starting Strokes system, where each golfer's starting score is determined by their position in the FedExCup standings. Scottie Scheffler holds the top spot and starts with a score of 10 under, while Viktor Hovland begins at 8 under.
Here are some golfers to consider for your DraftKings fantasy golf lineups:
Rory McIlroy ($13,000) Despite starting three strokes behind Scheffler, McIlroy is a standout player for the week. He has a strong history at East Lake, with three FedExCup wins and multiple top-10 finishes since 2013. McIlroy's recent performance includes a fourth-place finish at the BMW Championship, where he ranked second in SG: Tee-to-Green for the week. His familiarity with the course and outstanding track record make him an appealing choice.
Tyrrell Hatton ($6,900) Hatton starts the tournament at even-par, resulting in a lower salary. He has a history of performing well on challenging courses and finished T7 at East Lake in 2020. Despite recent underperformance, the high stakes of the tournament are likely to motivate Hatton to exceed expectations. Rostering Hatton provides flexibility to include other top-tier players in your lineup.
Sepp Straka ($5,400) Straka stands out as a budget-friendly option at $5,400. With seven top-10 finishes this season, including a win at the John Deere Classic and a T2 at The Open Championship, he has demonstrated his potential. Straka finished T7 in his first appearance at East Lake last year and displayed strong SG: Approach stats. His ability to score birdies at his price point makes him an attractive choice.
As the TOUR Championship unfolds, fantasy players have a unique opportunity to leverage their knowledge and build successful DraftKings lineups. With the stakes high and the competition fierce, the final event of the FedExCup Playoffs promises thrilling golf action.
