FANTEAM DAILY FANTASY GOLF – PGA CHAMPIONSHIP BEGINNERS GUIDE

PGA CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF BEGINNERS GUIDE

Not a huge a Golf fan but enjoy the Majors? Wondered what the fuss is all about with us shouting about Fantasy Golf all the time? Well here’s a simple guide that might just help, and could even tempt you into an entry or two…..

What is ‘The PGA Championship’?

 It’s the second golf major of the year and anyone who is anyone in golf is in the field. The PGA Championship goes on a course rotation each and every year, this year it returns to Southern Hills in Oklahoma for the first time in 15 years. The last time we were here a certain Mr Woods won his last PGA Championship.

Why is it so exciting?


It’s every top golfer in the world, competing on one of the best and hardest golf courses in the world. Stunning golf shots in truly stunning scenery, there’s nothing else like it.

Playing fantasy alongside leaves you rooting for players up and down the field and living and breathing through every shot. 

I’ve never played Fantasy Golf, what’s required?

Pick 6 players from the field of 156, within a 100m budget. Set one as your captain. That’s it! There’s even an auto-complete button if you want a decent team with no effort at all!

Ok, give me some tips on who to go for…..
