This week, the PGA Tour travels to Honolulu, Hawaii, for the 2024 Sony Open. Let's take a look at the first full-field event of the PGA Tour season from a fantasy golf/DraftKings perspective.
The 2024 Sony Open will be played at the Waialae Country Club. The golf course is a par 70 that measures approximately 7,044 yards.
Before I discuss my fantasy golf/DraftKings 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 DraftKings GPP (guaranteed prize pool) contest!
Here are my fantasy golf/DraftKings player selections for the 2024 Sony Open!
