Looking for a way to learn PGA DFS without jumping in with both feet? We have a perfect solution for you. This year Yahoo and Yahoo Fantasy are offering a $10,000 freeroll called the PGA “Yahoo Cup.” This contest awards a winner for weekly events and one winner at the end of the season who has the most cumulative points. Just two weeks left in the season and the winner will receive $1,000 at the end of them. Ultimately, winning the Yahoo Cup comes down to picking the right golfers. Today I will provide my top three value PGA DFS picks based on Yahoo salary, a couple of lineup fill-ins and two different fantasy golf lineup variations for making PGA picks for the FINAL ROUND of the year.
It was once again a mixed bag at the Fortinet Championship, with both Maverick McNealy and Mito Pereira coming in the top five. Those two with Chez Reavie were enough to get across the cash line in the GPP contests.
Top Three PGA DFS Value Picks for the Sanderson Farms Championship
Aaron Wise ($31)
Wise quietly had a really good 2021, especially the back half of the year, making 11 of his last 13 cuts and getting to the BMW Championship. After a few weeks off, Wise enters the fall swing full of confidence and looking to start his year off the way he did last year when he came in second at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. He is one of the primer talents of this field, and if he has just a decent putting week, he will be competing for the title on Sunday.
John Augenstein ($20)
While the first eight starts of Augenstein’s PGA Tour career did not pan out very well, the next three have gone much better. He has made the cut in all three and looked much more comfortable than in past events. His tie for sixth at the opening event should give him plenty of comfort, knowing that he will not need to do much more to qualify for the Korn Ferry Tour Finals at the end of the year and has all year to earn special temporary membership, with a top-10 already to his name. He will not have to use one of the five sponsor invites awarded to golfers each year, something else that should bode well for his career.
Sahith Theegala ($20)
Theegala was in a very similar spot to Augenstein last year, playing the Safeway Open and coming in 12th. That start and a few other made cuts got him into the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, where he then played superb golf over the three-event series and got his PGA Tour card. Once the best college golfer in the country, Theegala had the misfortune of graduating right when COVID-19 was at its worst, limiting his playing time. But a nice stretch of golf earns himself a spot on the big stage, and after a made cut last week at the Fortinet Championship, he should be able to come into the week with a sense of encouragement.

PGA DFS Yahoo Cup Lineup Builds
Aggressive Lineup Build
Stacking the three values listed above provides the ability to roster any other three golfers in the field. This is a good strategy for the fall swing, trying to nail those cheaply priced guys and stack three or four studs in the lineup.
Conservative Lineup Build
If going away from the minimum-salary golfers in Theegala and Augenstein, replace them with tour veterans Doug Ghim and Keith Mitchell. This build will not allow for rostering any three golfers, but it still does permit getting three golfers priced in the top 10 this week.
