The Open – DFS Cheat Sheet

The Open Championship will be back to Carnoustie, without a doubt one of the best courses in the World — dont @ me…   The story this week is how dry and quick the course is going to be and there’s a ton of focus on how drives are going to roll forever where we’ll see players hitting middle irons off the tee box and still driving it 300+ yards.  So there’s some thought that you want bombers here, but with the conditions aiding everyone I don’t think bombers is as important as players who are accurate in their short game.  The greens are going to be just as bad with the roll in my mind and so accuracy to the pin is going to be key.
