Why you need expert picks for The Tour Championship

All year we’ve talked about Golfstats.com and promote them because they win. Winning money playing fantasy golf is a marathon, not a sprint. You may not hit every GPP at DFS sites but then when they hit – you start to make money. Over the PGA Tour season they will win you cash - so as long as you continue to play the whole year – you will win too! There are only 30 guys playing in the Tour Championship so there are no sleepers or longshots but it’s a 1 in 30 shot at catching a winner and cashing in – Good Luck!
