Slate Breakdown | The Tour Championship WIN 50K THIS WEEK!
In this post

Here we are! The field has narrowed down to a mere 30 golfers, all geared up to compete at East Lake Country Club for the Tour Championship. This ultimate showdown will not only determine the Tour Champion but also the FedEx Champion. This event also signifies one of the most significant Reignmakers PGA TOUR slates of the year, boasting a payout of over $500,000 in prizes.

The Tournament

A topic that stirs much debate every year during this week is the staggered starting scores for each golfer at the Tour Championship. Based on their performance throughout the season, golfers are assigned starting positions for this tournament. For instance, Scottie Scheffler holds the top spot in the standings, resulting in a starting score of -10. The scores decrease from there, with Viktor Hovland commencing two shots behind at -8, followed by Rory McIlroy at -7 and Jon Rahm at -6. This pattern continues, concluding at Even par, which represents the highest starting score of the week.

The Course

East Lake Country Club marks the third consecutive par 70 course in the playoff series. Stretching across 7,300 yards, the course features intricate and demanding hole designs, offering both difficulty and challenge. However, it also provides a balanced and just examination, allowing for the potential of achieving low scores.

Driving Accuracy and Greens In Regulation %s are projected to be much higher than last week at Olympia fields with fairways hitting an average of about 60% while greens in regulation come in around 70% of the time.

The Slate

As we already mentioned, this slate for Reignmakers is one of the biggest in terms of prizing, with more than $500,000 to be paid out this week alone, and a top prize of $50,000 for the "Playoff" set contest.

The Golfers

While there are 30 golfers teeing it up here this week, only 28 will be available for selection, as favorites Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth remain on the sidelines for Reignmakers. But the other 28 are most of the best in the world, with only a select few golfers that are considered the world's best, not making it to East Lake this week.

Three-Ball: 3 DraftKings Reignmakers PGA TOUR Targets

Here are three potential options for DraftKings Reignmakers PGA TOUR this week:

Wyndham Clark 

Clark has undoubtedly had a breakout and breakthrough season, consistently performing well on leaderboards for the past 18 months. The pinnacle of his achievements was his unexpected triumph at the U.S Open, propelling him into the top 10 of world rankings. Although his game had always harbored the potential for such results, he grappled with his iron play in previous years.

Something has clearly changed, as his iron play has improved significantly, making him a force to be reckoned with. His familiarity with East Lake's setup and his Playoff Set price dropping to around $20 make him an appealing choice. Considering his starting position and an assured spot at the Ryder Cup in a few weeks, Clark should be a priority addition to your "Playoff" Set portfolio this week.

Tommy Fleetwood 

Tommy Fleetwood shares many compelling reasons to consider him for your lineup this week, mirroring the arguments for Clark. He's showcasing consistent and impressive golf, and his price tags remain accessible, hovering around $25 for the RARE tier of the Playoff Set.

Additionally, his upcoming participation in the Ryder Cup in Rome adds to his utility over the next two weeks, with the potential for significant earnings this week. All these factors combine to make Fleetwood a worthy contender for your fantasy lineup.

Tyrrell Hatton

There appears to be a consistent thread running through these selections, as Hatton joins the group of Ryder Cup-bound players to consider. Following his disappointing Sunday performance last week, Hatton initially believed his chances of playing this week were slim. However, fortuitous circumstances allowed him to qualify, and he now has a fresh slate to work with.

His recent performance has been impressive, with a gain of more than 15 strokes versus his competitors in the last 13 weeks. With this strong form and a determination to ascend from his tied-for-last starting position, Hatton is a compelling choice for your lineup. His RARE tier Playoff Set cards are going for around $15 as of early this morning.
