Jason Rouslin breaks down the best PGA DFS picks for The Masters Yahoo Cup daily fantasy tournament, including Si Woo Kim and Jordan Spieth.

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 “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. That winner will receive $1,000.

Ultimately, winning the Yahoo Cup comes down to picking the right golfers. Today I will provide my top three value plays based on Yahoo salary, a couple of lineup fill-ins, and then I will finish it off with two different lineup variations of how to start building your lineups this week for The Masters.

New to PGA DFS? Awesemo is the only site with projections from the No. 1 daily fantasy player in the world. We also have loads of free content, including grades, rankings, leverage scores and comprehensive articles like The Winning Element. Come visit the Awesemo PGA Home Page for all our FREE content.

Top Three Values for The Masters

Bubba Watson ($20)

Coming into the week, Watson is playing his best golf of the season. He is a two-time winner here and hasn’t missed a cut in quite some time. Watson is the minimum salary for this week as well, projected at 59.8 points according to Awesemo’s model. That ranks him as one of the top-value golfers at the minimum salary.

Si Woo Kim ($20)

Kim is only minimum-salary golfer with more projected points in Awesemo’s model than Watson (Kim projected at 59.6 points). He also holds a pretty good track record around Augusta, albeit not nearly as good as Watson’s. Still, Kim should provide great value at this salary.

Matt Wallace ($20)

Wallace comes into the week off of one of his best tee-to-green performances in recent memory. Typically that form does not leave overnight, and this is Wallace’s third trip to this course. Augusta National requires good ball striking and short game, and Wallace checks both those boxes.

PGA DFS Yahoo Cup Lineup Builds

Aggressive Build

Using the three top values highlighted above, gamers can roster just about any golfer to fill out the roster, with the exception of Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson all together. Any other combination works, including rostering two of those three with another top-end player.

Conservative Build

Taking a more conservative route, adding in both Jason Day and Jordan Spieth still allows for the lineup to add at least two stars while not giving up any win equity at all. This is the preferred lineup build this week.

Jason established his roots in the littlest state that could...Rhode Island. But after 29 years of bitter cold, and only being able to play golf 4 months a year, upended those roots and moved to Florida. Now two years later, Jason is a husband to Sarah and father of James as well as two Labradors (Choco and Bella) and he dedicates his time to serve as the lead of PGA content at Awesemo.com. In the time he is not diving into the PGA stats and covering this week's current tournament, you can find him researching and trading stocks, on the golf course, or somewhere hopefully lost in nature with his dogs guiding him along the way. Want to chat? Have a question about Golf/Stocks or anything else? Hop on twitter and give him a message @dfsgolfer23. You can also contact Jason by emailing support@awesemo.com.
