The PGA Tour is in Dublin, Ohio for the second straight week this coming weekend for the biggest tournament since the restart of the 2019-2020 season. A star-studded field will tee off on Thursday at Muirfield Golf Club for the Memorial Tournament.

There will be plenty of clout, but Tiger Woods is the big name returning to action. He has not played a Tour event since February, but the suspension gave him time to get his back in shape to return to play. He hits the course looking for his sixth career victory at Muirfield, but faces a tough crowd that includes Rory McIlroy, defending champ Patrick Cantlay, and 2018 champ and a currently surging Bryson DeChambeau.

Woods opened with the tenth best odds to win the Memorial, and it’s easy to wonder if he’ll be overvalued given the kind of money that often comes in on him. However, there’s a good chance he’ll also be a popular play in daily fantasy golf for both DraftKings classic and Showdown contests. He’s installed at $9,000, which puts him just above the average price you would have available to your roster.

In the early portion of the pre-pandemic season, Woods got off to a hot start. He won the ZOZO Championship and finished with 133.5 DKFP. A little over a month later, he finished fourth at the Hero World Challenge and finished with 110.5 DKFP. In January he tied for ninth at the Famers Insurance Open and had 83.5 DKFP, while in February at The Genesis Invitational, he finished 68th and had 49.5 DKFP after an ugly finish.

Woods does not offer upside in the traditional sense. It’s easy to get excited about him, especially at a course where he’s had success, but it’s a crapshoot with him at this stage of his career. You’ll find more value from someone like Kevin Streelman ($7,600). He’s done well at Muirfield in the past and has made cuts with consistency this season. You’ll have to find some sub-$8,000 golfers to make noise this weekend.

Here’s a full list of DraftKings DFS salaries for the Memorial Tournament. It is sortable by salary and average points this season.
