Our value picks are led by none other than Justin Rose. Sure, he had his struggles in the middle of the season. Between the Masters and the FedEx Cup Playoffs (okay, a big chunk of the season), Rose went six straight tournaments without a finish higher than 54th place. With his back issues seemingly gone now, Rose is ready to work his way back to the top of the golf world.
That mission is off to a great start. Rose has finished inside the top ten in each of the three Playoff events so far, and he did everything he could to chase down a red-hot Marc Leishman on Sunday at Conway Farms. He may have fallen short, but you can’t argue with the on-course performance. He’ll carry that momentum solidly into East Lake, where Rose has traditionally played very well, most recently finishing tied for second in 2015.
Here’s the big picture: each one of these picks has been made with the not only the highest floor possible in mind, but also giving you flexibility in how you complete your lineup. If I were to use these five guys, for instance, I may take a shot with Jon Rahm ($9,500) and still have $100 to spare. I may not be able to afford the likes of Jordan Spieth or Dustin Johnson, but I can think of worse ways to go.
Your team is just that, but if you’re looking to minimize risk, there’s plenty of value to be had without breaking the bank this week.
Get your lineups ready – this week’s DraftKings contests are going to be a ton of fun. Let us know who you’re leaning on at East Lake in the comments below, or on Twitter @ProGolfNow.
