A Chip Like No Other
As Phil Mickelson teed off on the 15th hole, he knew he’d need something special in order to catch leader Jordan Speith. Then came his incredible eagle out of the bunker to bring him within four strokes.
Ultimately, Speith’s lead was insurmountable for Phil and fellow golfer Justin Rose, who had to settle for a two way tie for second at The Masters.
And while Rose and Mickelson failed to capture the green jacket, their second place finishes earned them each $880,000.
But it was Speith, Rose, and Mickelson’s fantasy points helped a golf fan win $1 Million.
DraftKings user ‘BrettM’ joined the Millionaire Maker tournament, where he selected 6 golfers participating in The Masters. Four days later, he was the champion and had turned a $20 entry into $1,000,000.
The Million Dollar Lineup
Every Hole Matters
It wasn’t just Speith’s victory or Mickelson’s two eagles that earned BrettMarino the victory. His entire 6 man team contributed, from Charley Hoffman, who finished in 9th place to a very unlikely Russell Henley, who had 18 birdies throughout The Masters.
Drafting a Team is Easy
The popularity of fantasy golf has grown tremendously just in the last 2 years and fans are finding it so simple to get started.
1. Draft a team while staying under the $50,000 salary cap
2. Join a contest, ranging from free to the $3.3 Millionaire Maker, which has a $20 entry fee.
3. Follow along with your team during the entire PGA Championship as your score updates live.
Each golfer is given a salary based on their past and expected performance. In order to build the right team, you’ll have to choose between favorites like Speith and McIlroy, to sleepers like Charley Hoffman or Sang Moon Bae. Once you’re set, submit your team and enjoy four days of golf, rooting at every long drive and putt sank.
