Golf Predictor DFS PGA Resource

This page outlines why you should use Golf Predictor as your DFS PGA resource tool for upcoming US and European PGA Tour golf tournaments.

DFS PGA Resource

DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) golf usually involves picking a line-up of golfers under a defined salary cap for an upcoming US PGA Tour golf tournament. DFS Golf players win cash/prizes depending on the performance of their chosen golfers. Unlike traditional fantasy golf contests, DFS golf contests typically last for a single tournament rather than an entire season or significant part thereof. This cuts down on the time commitment involved and the wait to collect any winnings.

In addition to the comprehensive generic golf statistics, Golf Predictor has many features which make it an ideal DFS Golf resource. The comprehensive predictions available provide DFS golfers with invaluable statistics to enable them to identify good DFS Golf choices for the next US PGA Tour and European PGA Tour events on the calendar.

The DFS statistics on Golf Predictor are DraftKings specific. DraftKings is the biggest name in DFS golf and it provides downloadable information on its site every week. This information includes salary, average points per game and tournament ID for each golfer and this is imported into Golf Predictor to provide useful DFS stats and charts to our users.

Below are some of the main reasons why you should use Golf Predictor as your research tool for DFS golf contests. Of course there are more reasons, but you can find them out for yourself when you register! For brevity, the main reasons are listed below.
