2021 Puerto Rico Open
Sleeper Picks and Tournament Preview

Puerto Rico Open LogoThe Puerto Rico Open has the unfortunate place on the PGA schedule that places it the same week as the WGC Mexico Championship. The top PGA Tour golfers won't be at the Puerto Rico Open and not every daily fantasy golf site will offer games for the Puerto Rico Open since the WGC-Mexico will have the bulk of the Top golfers in the world.

Nevertheless, there will still be a field of golfers that you will have used in lineups so your challenge becomes tougher and relies on your research skills to take down your cash games or tournaments.

2021 Puerto Rico Open Tourney Preview

The 2021 Puerto Rico Open will once again have a weaker field of golfers to make fantasy picks from. Last year's tournament was an unofficial event on the PGA Tour due to the damage that hurricaine Maria caused to Puerto Rico. This year with the PGA Tour schedule being reshuffled this tournament once again becomes a bit of an afterthought with none of the big names playing here this week.

At 7500 yards+, it is a longer course so maybe look for guys that can hit it long and take advantage of some of the scoring holes. With the Masters right around the corner this is a great week to try out FanDuel for their fantasy golf games. They are running games leading up to the Masters and they have a unique scoring system so tournaments like this are a great opportunity to try out new sites to play at.

Sleeper picks for the Puerto Rico Open?

Will Gordon - Gordon is still learning life on tour and going to have to play well the rest of this year to secure a card for next year. He finished in 20th in his first Puerto Rico Open and in a weak field like this he could find his way closer to the top of the leaderboard if he starts the week off well.

Ted Potter, Jr. - Finished in 6th in last year’s Puerto Rico Open but this is a bit of a stretch otherwise given how poorly he’s played in the last year. Consider him more of a longshot than a sleeper pick but in a field where anyone can win…
