2018 Zurich Classic of New Orleans Tourney Preview

The 2018 Zurich Classic is a bit of a different format than most PGA Tournaments. The PGA Tour has made this tournament a two-man team format which will feature two rounds each of Foursome and Four-Ball competition. Last year was the first time this format was used and by all accounts it was well received by the players. Fantasy golfers unfortunately got locked out of the fun as the format doesn't allow for any type of DFS games.
