DraftKings PGA Lineup: Arnold Palmer Invitational 2017 Optimal Picks

After a span that saw Top-10 golfers win five tournaments in a row, Adam Hadwin returned some parity to the PGA Tour last week, holding off Patrick Cantlay, Jim Herman and Dominic Bozzelli to take down the Valspar Championship for the first victory of his career. Now, golfers head a couple hours east to Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando for the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Before we get to the annual tournament honoring one of the game's all-time legends, a quick look back at our DraftKings lineup from last week: The good news is that we had five of six make the cut, but the bad news is Jason Dufner (tied for 11th) was the highest finisher in our lineup. Throw in Graham DeLaet, Matt Kuchar and Kyle Stanley, who all finished inside the Top 30, and it was probably enough for cash games, but certainly came up short in tournaments.

Now back to the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Though it has played out slightly harder than the average course thanks to an array of bunkers and water hazards, there is room to go low at the 7,419-yard Par 72. The last two winners (Matt Every in 2015, Jason Day in 2016) have approached 20-under, while a total of 27 players have been double-digits under par during those two tournaments. With favorable weather conditions, we should see a bunch of low scores again this year.
