2024 U.S. Open
June 13, 2024 7:00 am EDT

This week, Draftkings Golf fans will be presented with the third major championship of the year, the 2024 U.S. Open. Let’s take a look at this week’s prestigious event from a Draftkings perspective.

Before I dive into my DFS player selections for this tournament let’s review the Golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a Golfer’s success at this week’s 2024 U.S. Open.

Where will the 2024 U.S. Open be played?

The 2024 U.S. Open will be played at the Pinehurst Resort (Pinehurst Number 2) in Pinehurst Village, North Carolina. The Golf course is a par 70 that measures approximately 7,548 yards.

The Pinehurst Resort last hosted a U.S. Open in 2014. Martin Kaymer won the 2014 U.S. Open with a cumulative four round score of nine under par.

How will the U.S. Open cut be determined?

The U.S. Open will have a field of 156 players to start the tournament on Thursday. Upon the completion of two rounds, a cut will occur. The top 60 Golfers (including ties) will make the cut.

U.S. Open Key Player Statistics

  • Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
  • Strokes Gained: Off the Tee
  • GIR (greens in regulation)
  • Strokes Gained: Around the Green
  • Strokes Gained: Putting
  • Strokes Gained: Approach
  • Driving Distance
  • Birdie of Better Percentage

I wanted to emphasize that the purpose of this article is not to provide an exact DFS lineup.

Having stated that, this article will provide multiple player options in an effort to assist the reader in generating a unique lineup that will hopefully have the potential to win a DraftKings GPP (guaranteed prize pool) contest!

2024 U.S. Open Draftkings Player Selections

Scottie Scheffler $13,000

Since the beginning of February, Scottie Scheffler has played 11 tournaments on the PGA Tour. In those 11 events just mentioned, Scheffler has accumulated 11 top ten finishes, including an astounding five wins (2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational: 2024 Players Championship: 2024 Masters Tournament: 2024 RBC Heritage: 2024 Memorial Tournament).

I think it’s fair to say that Scottie Scheffler has been playing well from a key player statistics perspective. Let me be more specific. In relation to this week’s 2024 U.S. Open field, in the last 36 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Scottie Scheffler ranks first in GIR (greens in regulation), first in strokes gained tee to green, first in strokes gained approach, first in strokes gained off the tee, first in bogey avoidance, and first in birdie or better percentage.

Additionally, Scottie Scheffler has played well at the U.S. Open in the past. Scheffler finished second at the 2022 U.S. Open.

Xander Schauffele $11,500

Xander Schauffele arrives at this week’s major championship in rather good form. Schauffele has accumulated six top eight finishes in his last seven events played on the PGA Tour, including an impressive win at the 2024 PGA Championship four weeks ago.

In relation to this week’s 2024 U.S. Open field, in the last 24 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Xander Schauffele ranks second in GIR (greens in regulation), 11th in driving accuracy, sixth in strokes gained approach, second in strokes gained off the tee, eighth in strokes gained putting, second in bogey avoidance, and fifth in birdie or better percentage.

Xander Schauffele also checks the box for me when it comes to previous event history. Since 2017, Schauffele has competed in the U.S. Open seven times. In those events just noted, Schauffele has accumulated six top ten finishes, including a third-place result at the 2019 U.S. Open.

Corey Conners $7,200

The talented Canadian has accumulated three top 20 finishes in his last four tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including a sixth-place result at the 2024 RBC Canadian Open two weeks ago.

Additional Golfers I like to play well (Draftkings price noted): Collin Morikawa $9,400: Sam Burns $7,200: Min Woo Lee $7,300: Ryan Fox $6,500: Keegan Bradley $6,800: Lucas Glover $6,400.
