Heavy’s partners at DraftKings just made someone $1 million richer from playing fantasy golf. But they’re not done giving out the cash as they’ve created a low buy-in contest for this week’s RBC Canadian Open in which one fantasy player will take home $100,000.

Sign up with DraftKings and enter the PGA $350K Drive The Green fantasy golf contest.

For a $3 entry fee, you get your shot at the top prize of $100,000, but DraftKings is paying out $350K million total in the contest. Second place brings home $10,000 and third $5,000. Over 30,300 entered teams will collect.

The contest gets started at 6 a.m. Eastern on Thursday, July 23, so lineups need to be set by then.

The rules are simple: With a fixed salary cap of $50,000, choose 6 golfers you feel have the best chance to do well at Glen Abbey in Ontario, Canada. The better your selected players do on the course, the better your fantasy team does, the more money you make. The idea is to not only pick golfers who can make the birdies and pars, but play the entire 4 rounds. Picking a pro who misses the cut isn’t going to help.

Jason Day is the most expensive player in the field at $11,600. I’m slightly concerned about using Day considering he had a long return trip on Monday from Scotland. But he is the best golfer teeing it up.

Other attractive higher-priced players are Matt Kuchar ($10,100), JB Holmes ($9,900), Luke Donald ($9,600) and Brooks Koepka ($9,300).

You’ll need a bargain or two in your lineup as well. Take a look at Johnson Wagner ($7,700), David Hearn ($7,100), Chad Collins ($6,300), Andres Romero ($6,200) and Spencer Levin ($6,000).
