We designed FanDuel Golf to make every hole matter — for every player, in every round, in every tournament. That’s why you get points for your players’ individual hole performance, streaks, and real-world finishing position.
On FanDuel Golf, you draft a total of 8 golfers: 4 golfers for Rounds 1-2, and 4 different golfers for Rounds 3-4. Your entire lineup (all 8 golfers) locks at the start of Round 1. And like all FanDuel sports, each player has a salary based on skill and past performance — so make sure your lineup stays under the salary cap.
Your players primarily earn points for their play in the rounds you select them for. But you also get rewarded if any of your players — regardless of the round you play them in — finish in the real-world tournament’s top 25.
Remember, on FanDuel Golf, it’s not just who you pick, but when you pick them. If you’re a new player, you may want to consider the High-Level Strategies below to help you identify the pool of players you want to pick. Then, use the more specific Rounds 1-2 and Rounds 3-4 strategies to help you decide where to slot them.
Past Course Performance
Every course is different. Consider how each player has previously performed on that week’s course.
Look for healthy players who have had recent success.
Whether you start a player in Rounds 1-2 or Rounds 3-4, you get rewarded if he finishes in the tournament’s top 25. So keep the real-world prospects of all of your players in mind as you make your picks.
In rounds 1-2, your players can still be valuable even if they don’t make the cut. So concentrate your risk here.
Players who start strong but can’t close are more valuable in Rounds 1-2.
Find each player’s average R1-R2 FPPG (FanDuel Points Per Game) under his player card.
Play It Safe
You don’t get any points for Rounds 3-4 players who fail to make the cut, so put the players you’re most confident will make it the final two rounds here.
Try to isolate players who always turn it on in the final rounds of a tournament.

FanDuel will hold four (4) “Golf Digest Exclusive Fantasy Golf Contests” (“Tournaments”) where FanDuel players will have the chance to win prizes. The first Tournament will run on Thursday, March 30, 2017. The second Tournament will run on Thursday, April 13, 2017. The third Tournament will run on Thursday, April 20, 2017. The fourth and last Tournament will run on Thursday, May 11, 2017. The Tournaments are daily fantasy golf contests operated by FanDuel. The entry fees and maximum entries for each Tournament are subject to FanDuel's discretion. Any instance of registering multiple accounts on FanDuel in order to gain more than three entries into a Tournament will result in automatic disqualification from the Tournament as well as potential suspension from FanDuel.
The top finisher in each of the Tournaments (“Grand Prize Winners”) will win a cash prize as well as a brand new Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic Driver (ARV $500) (“Grand Prize”). Grand Prize Winners will receive an email from FanDuel within 48 hours of winning the Grand Prize, with instructions on how to claim their prize — Grand Prize Winners must respond with required information within two (2) weeks of receipt of that email. Complete prize tables will be available in the “Prizes” section after each Tournament is created. All prizes are subject to availability and cannot be redeemed for cash.
Standard FanDuel scoring rules for fantasy golf contests apply. You can find all scoring rules at https://www.fanduel.com/rules.
In the event of any ties between two or more players for the Grand Prize Winner, the superior finishing position will be awarded to the tied FanDuel player with the highest individual golf player score on his team. If a tie remains, then the second highest individual golf player score on the remaining tied players’ teams will determine the superior finishing position; if a tie still remains, then the third highest individual golf player score on the remaining tied players’ teams will determine the winner. This method will continue until a winner has been determined. If a winner cannot be determined using this method, then all players that are still tied will compete in a tiebreaking freeroll the following week to determine the final prize order.
FanDuel may request US resident prize winners to to provide address and social security details prior to receiving their prize if their prize exceeds $600 in value.
