2017 Puerto Rico Open
Expert 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 Dell Technologies Match Play. The top PGA Tour golfers won't be at the Puerto Rico Open but it will be the tournament that Daily Fantasy Golf Sites like FanDuel and DraftKings will be having fantasy golf contests for because the WGC Tournament is set up in a way that doesn't work for fantasy games.

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.

2017 Puerto Rico Open Tourney Preview

The 2017 Puerto Rico Open will once again have a weaker field of golfers to make fantasy picks from. Keep an eye on guys that have played the Coco Beach Golf Course before and played well, and look for guys that have played well in the last few tournaments and are riding a bit of a hot hand.

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.Click the banner to check out the rules for the golf games and you can join from there.
