PGA DFS Dew Sweeper – Fortinet

Fortinet Championship

It’s time for the “Wrap-Around” or “Silly Season” that starts the new 2022-23 PGA Tour season and FedEx Cup race.  This year will be interesting.  Especially when we get to the cage match between the PGA Tour and the LIV Tour.

My opinion?  Which really doesn’t matter, but I think it’s right that the guys that go to the LIV Tour shouldn’t be allowed to automatically qualify for the PGA or DP World Tour events.  When you take “appearance money” and don’t have to bust your ass to make money in the tournaments – no cut and guaranteed purses – you shouldn’t be allowed to take that away from the guys that are trying earn a living.  The LIV guys weren’t forced to go there, they chose to leave.  If it was for “family security” or some other reason, you made your choice.  Now, stay the hell out of my yard while I’m trying to earn a living.

Rant over – and my opinion isn’t the popular one either amongst my golfing friends.

With these tournaments, you won’t get a lot of fluff from me, just picks.  If that’s something you’d prefer during the year, let me know.  I’m trying to be entertaining (at least in my opinion) and give you picks at the same time.  If you’d rather me “shut the hell up and pick!” – tell me.

This IS NOT a high-quality field, but watch some of the new guys.  They will be cheap quality options when the big boys return in January.

NOTE:  All pricing is based on DraftKings
