This week, the PGA Tour presents the fantasy golf community with the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP. A stacked field of talent, including defending champion Hideki Matsuyama, will travel to Japan for a chance to hoist the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP trophy on Sunday. Let’s take a look at this tournament from a fantasy golf perspective.
Before I discuss my fantasy golf player selections I wanted to emphasize that the purpose of this article is not to provide an exact lineup for a specific fantasy provider.
Having stated that, this article will provide multiple player options in an effort to assist the reader in generating a unique lineup that will hopefully have the potential to win a GPP (guaranteed prize pool) contest!
Here are my fantasy golf/DFS player selections for this week’s ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP!
