PGA | Must- Haves | THE PLAYERS Championship

A first glance at the PGA Tour calendar this week and one might think we are already in May, as we are so accustomed to seeing THE PLAYERS Championship normally held during that month. However, due to a massive overhaul of the annual schedule this year, aimed at spacing out major championships, this unofficial “Fifth Major”, held at the famed TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, FL has now been bumped up a full two months. As would befit a major tournament atmosphere, the stars are out in droves this week- with names like Woods, Johnson, McIlroy, Thomas, Spieth, Rose, Koepka,... Read More

PGA | Must- Haves | Arnold Palmer Invitational

This week the eyes of the golf world turn to the famed Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, FL- former home to one of golfs royal figures and perhaps its most beloved statesman, Mr. Arnold Palmer. The King purchased this track of land in 1976 to build his own premier golf club, and with his keen eye and design acumen, turned this into a stop on the PGA Tour that has been going strong now as a tournament host for four consecutive decades. While it was definitely an overly-exerting track in its early life, a recent overhaul in 2014... Read More

PGA | Must- Haves | Saturday Showdown- Honda Classic

PGA Saturday Showdown Slate So we here at DFI think we’ve found an edge to playing the daily showdown slates on Draft Kings.

For example, today, Zach Johnson ranked 25th in SG: OTT, 50th in SG:... Read More

PGA | Must-Haves | Honda Classic

The Florida swing of the PGA Tour kicks off this weekly the Honda Classic with a trip to Palm Beach Gardens, with a stop at PGA National Champions course, originally designed by Tom Fazio and given an overhaul by Jack Nicklaus. If the old adage of getting the hardest one out of the way first is to be believed, it certainly applies here. At 7,158 yards for its Par 70, PGA National isn’t overly long, but when playing into a ferocious wind, can add substantial yardage. Last year PGA National ranked as the third-hardest course on Tour, and contains three closing... Read More

PGA | Must-Haves | WGC Mexico Championship

This week the PGA Tour ventures south of the border for the WGC Championships- Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepec, nestled right outside of the bustling metropolis of Mexico City. This is the third year this club has hosted the event, after moving over from National Doral in Miami starting in 2017. It’s fast becoming a course that players on Tour give glowing reviews, as a thick, tree-lined parkland course, that plays at a staggering 7,500 feet above sea level, that offers eye-opening views of the surrounding mountains and city. The altitude tends to temper some of the advantage... Read More
