DraftKings PGA Lineup: WGC-Mexico 2017 Optimal Picks

Following Rickie Fowler's dominant win at the Honda Classic this past weekend, seven of the eight official PGA Tour events since the start of the calendar year have been won by someone under the age of 30: Justin Thomas (twice), 23, Hudson Swafford, 29, Jon Rahm, 22, Hideki Matsuyama, 25, Jordan Spieth, 23, and Fowler, 28. The only outlier during that span? World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, at an ancient 32 years old. The future of golf is right now, and while many pundits thought it wouldn't recover from the downfall of Tiger Woods, the sport couldn't be in a better place right now in terms of overall depth of young talent. That will be on full display this week at the WGC-Mexico, which will feature 49 of the top 50 players in the world (Jason Day is out with an illness). That alone will make for some interesting DFS lineup decisions, but when you throw in the unfamiliarity of the course, things get even more unpredictable. Here's what we know about the Club de Golf Chapultepec, the home of the first ever WGC event in Mexico: It's a 7,330-yard Par 71, it's about 7,500 feet above sea level, and the only golfer in this field who played it when it last hosted a tournament (2014 Mexican Open) is Roberto Diaz. Another thing to remember: There will be no cut, meaning all golfers will play all four rounds, and you'll have more incentive to take some risks on potential sleepers.
