FanDuel Fantasy Golf Picks for THE PLAYERS Championship 2023 at TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course
The PGA Tour is preparing for its next event at THE PLAYERS Championship at the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida - site of the PGA Tour Headquarters.
This 144-player invitational field is elite with 43 of the top 50 players in the world golf rankings. That means there are plenty of options to build star-studded fantasy lineups for this week's elevated $25 million event.
Let's take a look at three golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.
The PLAYERS Championship 2023 Fantasy Picks
Viktor Hovland Fantasy
Hovland’s game is one of the best in ball-striking and big improvements in strokes gained weekly. He gained better than 5 strokes in Phoenix, 6 at Riviera then more than 9 strokes in ball striking last week at the API. But sub-par putting and short game cost him a top finish in Arnie's event. Hovland finished T-9 here last year with elite ball striking to lead the field, and Pete Dye's Stadium Course is a solid fit for his game.
Keith Mitchel Fantasy
Mitchell is at his best in Florida on Bermuda grass, and he's gained strokes Off-the-Tee in 13 consecutive events. That includes a field-best +7.10 OTT last week. With three top-10 finishes in his last eight starts and a T-13 here last year, Mitchell is a solid fantasy addition at a better price.
PLAYERS Championship Sleepers
Tommy Fleetwood Fantasy
Fleetwood is a dark horse this week at longer odds but good addition to fantasy lineups at a bargain. The 32-year-old Englishman ranks No. 11 in Around the Green and No. 18 in Approach stats over his last 36 rounds with top-25 Short Game and Tee-to-Green stats as well. His ball striking is solid, and he finished T-22 here last year in difficult and wet weather while still displaying elite Tee-to-Green play.
