This week, the PGA Tour presents golf fans with the Cadence Bank Houston Open. A quality field of talent will travel to Houston and attempt to hoist the winner’s trophy on Sunday afternoon. Who will win? Well, I will attempt to answer that question as I provide you with my fantasy golf player selections for this week’s Cadence Bank Houston Open.
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!
Now, let’s shift our focus to my DFS/fantasy golf selections for the Cadence Bank Houston Open.
2022 Cadence Bank Houston Open DFS/Fantasy golf player selections
Since the beginning of June, Sam Burns has played 11 events on the PGA Tour. In those 11 tournaments just noted, Burns has accumulated six top-24 finishes, including a win at the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge.

Additionally, It should be mentioned that Sam Burns finished seventh at the 2021 Cadence Bank Houston Open.
Maverick McNealy arrives at this week’s Cadence Bank Houston Open in rather good form. McNealy has accumulated four consecutive top-18 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a tenth-place result at last week’s World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba.
Maverick McNealy certainly checks the box for me when it comes to previous event/course history. Let me be more specific. McNealy has played this week’s PGA Tour event three times since 2019. In those three events just noted McNealy has accumulated three top-20 finishes, including a 17th-place result at the 2019 Cadence Bank Houston Open.
