Seriously We’ll leave the debate about whether The Players is a major to other forums. To those playing daily fantasy golf, entering pools or placing a wager, The Players Championship is very much in the upper echelon of the year’s events.
The price pools in all DraftKings and FanDuel contests this week are the biggest of the year, and with this week’s field containing 100 of the top 100 players in the world, the odds on each golfer to win are significantly higher than you’d normally see.
That gives our panel of expert golf handicappers, which includes a PGA Tour caddie offering insight from the range and putting green every week, thanks to our partnership with The Caddie Network, to two of the most respected fantasy golf experts, Pat Mayo and Brandon Gdula, and Columbia University senior lecturer and Ph.D. Lou Riccio,

Pat Mayo, DraftKings/Fantasy National analyst: Sergio Garcia (33-1) — A former champ, with experience playing TPC Sawgrass in March, with a strong track record at PGA National, another shorter, tough Florida course played this time of year, Sergio’s form is eerily similar to his lead up at the 2018 Masters. Since last September, Sergio’s played 11 events worldwide. He has a Top 10 in nine of them. The only two blemishes were his DQ in Saudi Arabia, where
