Draft Your Fantasy Golf Team Today: $150,000 in Guaranteed Prizes, Just $20 to Enter
Rory McIlroy has his eyes set on completing a career Grand Slam by winning The Masters in April. His 2015 golf debut did not get him on the right track to achieve that goal though, as he missed the cut at the Honda Classic last week. This week, Rory will look to rebound in Miami, facing off in the Cadillac Championship.
Despite last week’s struggles, he is still a favorite to win this week in Miami, based on DraftKings fantasy golf salaries. DraftKings fantasy golf contests involve choosing 6 golfers in a given tournament and competing against other users for prizes (such as this week’s $20 Entry, $150,000 Guaranteed Prizes Contest).
Rory is priced at $15,300 which is almost double of the average $8,333 price to make up your team. He is almost $3,000 more expensive than the second highest golfer, Bubba Watson.
The field for the Cadillac Championship has plenty of big names, so it should be a good test to see if he’ll be able to keep the magic from 2014 going. With the Masters just over a month away, every tournament is crucial in preparation.
While Rory and the rest of the field have their eyes set on the Green Jacket, the tournament has some added appeal for golf fans as well. Rory’s performance may not only win him the major he covets, but he could also help a golf fan become a Millionaire. DraftKings recently announced the “Masters Millionaire Maker” contest, where fantasy golfers can compete for the first ever $1 Million first place prize in fantasy golf. While salaries haven’t been announced yet, Las Vegas sportsbooks have Rory listed as a 6 to 1 favorite, with Jordan Spieth as his closest competition at 15 to 1.
