2019 ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP Tournament Preview

Some of the hardest tournaments to make picks for and find sleeper picks for are new tournaments and once again we have a new one to examine for expert golf picks. The good news is that some of the biggest names have already committed to playing the ZOZO Championship so picking sleepers will be easier with a smaller field.

As with any new event, daily fantasy golf players are at a disadvantage with no course history info to do research with so looking at guys that are playing well right now is a good strategy to focus on. Keep in mind some guys have been playing on the European Tour finishing off the season so look there and the PGA Tour to see who is playing well right now and who isn't. The smart fantasy golf DFS players will look at what Sal at GolfStats has to say. We, and everyone else that joined had a very profitable year using their picks and we rely on GolfStats for new tournaments like this to give us an edge on other guys relying on their "skill".

2019 ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks

Matthew Fitzpatrick - Some big names playing the ZOZO Championship like Rory, Day, Fleetwood, Finau, Matsuyama, Reed, Schauffele, Woods. Thomas, Spieth...they will all be the favorites to win but a golfer like Fitzpatrick makes a great sleeper pick for the week. Ranked 26th in the world and off of most people’s radar since he plays the European Tour often Fitzpatrick is coming off a 2nd place finish at the Italian Open and a T26 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He’ll be in tough to win but he has the talent to make it up the leaderboard and score you the DFS points you need.
