2020 Safeway Open Picks and Tournament Preview

Safeway Open LogoWell fantasy golf players have transitioned quickly back to PGA Tour fantasy games with last week's final tournament of the 2019/2020 season. If you are ready to take the money you made last year playing in our affiliate partner DraftKings Fantasy Golf contests to build your bankroll for this year - then the Safeway Open golf PGA Tournament is the perfect place to start.

The Safeway Open field of golfers is generally a bit weaker for fantasy golf as most of the biggest PGA Tour players take a bit of a break but you may still want to play a hot golfer that finished off the season well in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

2020 Safeway Open Tourney Preview

My how things have changed since the last Safeway Open…it almost seems like a whole new world! Last week was the Tour Championship and next week is the postponed 2020 US Open so this week’s field will be pretty light on talent as most are getting ready for next week’s major.

The field for the 2020 Safeway Open will be made up mostly of golfers that want to start the 2020-2021 PGA Tour season strong and are hoping to get an early jump in the FedEx Cup standings for next year’s tournament. There will mostly be players that just got their PGA Tour card for this season and guys that have been around the tour and are just grinding out a living.

Because it is a new PGA Tour season, if you haven’t gotten one yet or your membership has expired, now is the perfect time to join GolfStats.com and get a full year membership and take advantage of their fantasy golf and PGA betting picks.
