Introduction to PGA DFS Fantasy: Draftking

Draft Kings have weekly PGA DFS leagues, but they don't usually have contests that span many events. There are some free games accessible, and you can even win great rewards by playing in them, but most of the action requires a subscription. Fees often start at $3, but you can find contests with buy-ins in the hundreds of dollars.

Golf is a decent sport loved by several Americans. However, if you are into PGA DFS, this article will introduce you to the PGA golf fantasy games.


Types of PGA DFS Games


Golf classic

In Classic games, you'll form a team of golfers to compete in a tournament and play all the rounds.


Golf Weekend

Weekend golf games are scored depending on a golfer's position at the end of the tournament's third and fourth rounds (Saturday and Sunday).


Cup Golf Cup Games

They are scored similarly to Match Play games, except that you select a team captain and five players.


Cup Showdown Golf

Cup Matchplay scoring is used in Golf Cup Showdown games, although only for one round of an event.


DraftKings Daily Fantasy Golf Rules


The setup for DraftKings daily fantasy golf games begins with an open salary cap draft. Next, you choose six players based on their world ranking, recent performance, and previous performance at the tournament.

To make such decisions, you have $50,000 to work with. Once the tournament begins, players get points depending on their position on the leaderboard and their scoring, including birdies, eagles, pars, dropped shots (bogeys or worse), and bogey-free round streaks. At the end of the competition, the player with the most points earned by their six-person team wins.


Scoring


The specifics of scoring differ depending on the game style. A variety of factors are used to assign points to golfers. In most competitions, Tournament Finish Scoring is used.


Per Hole Scoring, Streaks and Bonuses are important considerations for weekend and single round styles. Golfers can earn points in classic games by scoring per hole, with Double Eagles scoring the highest Bogeys and Double Bogeys costing points.


Points are awarded for streaks and bonuses and the golfer's finish in the tournament or event. Weekend Golf games follow the same scoring rules as Classic events, except that tournament finishes are not recorded.
