Upon turning pro in December 2012, Jordan Spieth stated his goal was to make the FedExCup playoffs. Yet, the series of tournaments is open only to PGA Tour members. Spieth – went straight from the University of Texas to needing sponsor exemptions for PGA events – officially became one with his John Deere Classic win, and the points he earned previously in 15 events retroactively counted in his point total. That shot him to 11th in the FedEx Cup standings; he now stands 10th.

Here are a few tips below on how to win a big DraftKings contest like this one…
#1 – Play unpopular picks – The best chance you have of winning this thing is if you choose the winner of the tournament that a low % of people have that guy in their lineup. Aside from that you also want guys who arent in a lot of lineups but also make the cut and do well overall.
#2 – Look for course form and daily pin placement – One of the best ways to predict winners in golf tournaments is to check past results on the course theyre playing. Some courses play differently than others and certain golfers do better at certain courses. Sometimes courses suit long hitters, or accurate ball strikers, but sometimes the golfer just has a good feel for certain courses. Bubba Watson loves the Masters because it fits a lefties game. Check how golfers have performed at Augusta in the past. If its an amateur or young golfer try to find data on their experience there not in the Masters.
#3 – You 100% will need to pick the winner of the tournament. Because of the bonus points given out to choosing the winner you will NEED to pick the winner of the Masters to win the million dollars. So if you think Phil Mickelson is going to win maybe you have to take him and work with the leftover salary to choose some low priced players and just try to put together the best lineup. There are a lot of tournaments where you see the field win with lesser known guys.
