This Saturday, the PGA Tour presents fantasy golf fans with the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open.
The final round of the 2024 Farmers Insurance Open will be played at the Torrey Pines South Course in San Diego, California. The golf course is a par 72 that measures approximately 7,765 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!
For those readers who are not aware, the rules and scoring for DraftKings showdown contests are vastly different than the traditional classic contests offered by the platform. If you need to review the specific rules for the showdown contest feel free to check out the DraftKings website.
Here are my final round DraftKings Showdown Player Selections for the 2024 Farmers Insurance Open!
