2018 The National Picks and Tournament Preview

The National LogoPreviously known as the Quicken Loans National until 2017 when the name changed to just The National while they look for a new tournament sponsor. This is a smaller field event as it in an invitational tournament which means the field starts off at 120 golfers before the weekend cut. It is also a popular draw on the PGA Tour as it is an event that raises funds for the Tiger Woods Foundation.

The National falls right in the middle of the US Open and the Open Championship so the field is fairly strong for fantasy golfers to pick players from.

2018 The National Tourney Preview

The 2018 National Tournament moved to the newly redesigned TPC Potomac last year so course history won't matter as much as only players last year played at the TPC Potomac.

The National usually has some big names playing since it is an invitational tournament and it is hosted by Tiger Woods and the Tiger Woods Foundation. There will be some good golfers for your DraftKings.com Fantasy Golf Roster this week. DraftKings, who we've partnered with, is the best fantasy golf site and worth checking out if you haven't yet played DFS Fantasy Golf.
