Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Dustin Johnson takes home first Masters title with record score

Johnson ($10,000; 142 DKFP) was the runaway winner at Augusta, holding off Sungjae Im ($7,500; 110 DKFP) and Cameron Smith ($7,300; 123.5 DKFP) by five shots on Sunday to capture his first green jacket. Johnson shot a four-under 68 to card a 72-hole record -20 score, two shots better than the -18 recorded by Jordan Spieth ($8,200) in 2015 and Tiger Woods ($9,100) in 1997. The 36-year-old recorded two bogeys on Sunday to go along with six birdies, including three straight on the back nine to give him the bonus. Johnson, who was 34% owned in the $4M Fantasy Golf Millionaire, finished with 20 birdies and two eagles and two bogey-free rounds. It was his first successful defense of a 54-hole lead at a major in five tries. Johnson was also a part of the winning lineup in the DraftKings Fantasy Golf World Championship for ‘Felixingenium,’ who finished with 562 DKFP. — Kenny Ducey

Cameron Smith posts historic runner-up finish at the Masters

Cameron Smith ($7,300; 123.5 DKFP) became the only player in the history of the Masters to fire four rounds under 70 and posted an impressive -15 total this week at Augusta National. Unfortunately for him, he still finished five shots behind Dustin Johnson ($10,000; 141.5 DKFP) in a tie for second with Sungjae Im ($7,500; 110 DKFP) with the lowest runner-up score ever. Smith only made two bogeys over his final two rounds which were each three-under. Only four players shot a better closing round than Smith, with Johnson, C.T. Pan ($6,100; 87 DKFP), Webb Simpson ($9,300; 90 DKFP) and Marc Leishman ($6,900; 87 DKFP) firing four-under closing rounds to move up the leaderboard. — Zach Thompson


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Dustin Johnson fires his second 65 of the week, holds four-shot lead entering Sunday

Johnson ($10,000) will start his final round on Sunday sitting comfortably atop the leaderboard at Augusta, ahead of a group of three golfers by four shots. The 36-year-old shot his second 65 of the week and equaled Jordan Spieth ($8,200; 41.5 DKFP)’s 54-hole record of -16 at The Masters. Johnson started off the day with a bang, eagling the par-five second and following that up with birdies on Nos. 3 and 4 to earn him the birdie streak bonus. He’d go on to make three more birdies and finish without a bogey. Abraham Ancer ($7,400; 86 DKFP), Sungjae Im ($7,500; 90.5 DKFP) and Cameron Smith ($7,300; 99 DKFP) make up the chase group at -12. — Kenny Ducey

Dylan Frittelli, Rory McIlroy go low Saturday at Augusta

Dustin Johnson ($10,000) was the big story at the Masters on Saturday, but Dylan Frittelli ($6,500) and Rory McIlroy ($10,200) also put together excellent rounds. Both players were able to shoot five-under-par in the third round, which vaulted Frittelli into a tie for fifth and McIlroy into a tie for 10th. Frittelli finished his round with five birdies and zero bogeys, while McIlory finished with six birdies and one bogey. McIlory entered the tournament as one of the favorites and he was also a popular DFS option given his approximate ownership of 17% across DraftKings tournaments. Frittelli was much less popular, checking in with an average ownership of just 2.16%. That could make him a very important player on Sunday. — Matt LaMarca


Round 2 Recap — Saturday

The Masters cut lands at even-par after second round finishes up

After Round 2 was suspended due to darkness Friday night, players finished out the second round early Saturday giving DFS players an early sweat to start the day. The cut line finished at even-par with 10 players tied at T50. If any one of them had made a late birdie, the rest of the group would have had the weekend off. Making the cut on the number was Bryson DeChambeau ($11,200), Tony Finau ($8,800), Matthew Fitzpatrick ($7,600), Zach Johnson ($6,800), Jordan Spieth ($8,200) and Collin Morikawa ($9,500). Notable players that missed the cut include Matt Kuchar ($7,200), Kevin Kisner ($7,100), Gary Woodland ($7,300), Tyrell Hatton ($9,400), Matthew Wolff ($8,500) and Jason Day ($8,400). — Zach Thompson

Round 2 Recap — Friday

Four players tied for lead at conclusion of Day 2 of the Masters

The second round of the Masters was cut short due to darkness, but four players are tied for the lead at the conclusion of Friday’s play. Dustin Johnson ($10,000) and Justin Thomas ($10,700) are the two biggest names tied for the lead at nine-under-par, and Cameron Smith ($7,300) and Abraham Ancer ($7,400) are also tied for the lead. All four players were able to finish the second round, while Jon Rahm ($10,500) and Hideki Matsuyami ($8,700) are just one stroke back with holes left to play. Johnson was easily the most popular DFS target of the week — he was owned at approximately 40.6% across DraftKings tournaments — while Matsuyama and Rahm both carried top-six ownerships. That gives a lot of DFS players hope heading into the weekend. — Matt LaMarca

Many big names hover around cut line as play suspended

With play suspended due to darkness, many players still have a ways to go before finishing their second round, leaving plenty of uncertainty as to who will play the weekend and who is headed home early. The top 50 and ties would right now include a host of players at even-par, including Collin Morikawa ($9,500), Matthew Fitzpatrick ($7,600) and Zach Johnson ($6,800) who are all finished with Round 2 along with Jason Day ($8,400), Shane Lowry ($7,300) and Jordan Spieth ($8,200) who are still on the course. Bryson DeChambeau ($11,200) is at +1 with six holes to play and will need to make up ground to make the cut. Tyrell Hatton ($9,400) and Matthew Wolff ($8,500) are further back and are almost certainly done for the week. — Zach Thompson


Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Paul Casey leads The Masters as first round is suspended due to darkness

Casey ($8,000; 62 DKFP) sits atop the leaderboard at Augusta after carding a first-round 65 on Thursday. After a rain delay, Casey finished 7-under to lead the morning groups, while the afternoon groups had their first rounds suspended due to darkness. It remains to be seen if his lead will hold up with the likes of Justin Thomas ($10,700; 42.0 DKFP) and Adam Scott ($8,900; 29.0 DKFP) lurking, but Casey’s bogey-free round was spectacular nonetheless. The 43-year-old began the day with a bang, birdieing his first hole before carding an eagle and four more birdies to vault into the lead. Webb Simpson ($9,300; 47.0 DKFP) and Xander Schauffele ($9,800; 47.5 DKFP) finished two strokes off the lead, tied with Thomas who has played 10 holes. — Kenny Ducey

Tiger Woods within shouting distance of first place at The Masters with first-round 68

Woods ($9,100; 38.0 DKFP) was absolutely stellar on Thursday, rolling into the clubhouse at Augusta with a bogey-free 68. For Woods, who has been playing in The Masters since 1995, it is the first time he has completed his first round without carding a bogey. Woods began the day red-hot with three birdies in his opening nine holes. He levelled out a bit after making the turn, finishing up his round near the top of the leaderboard. After his round was over, he told ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi that he was extremely pleased with every facet of his game on Thursday — his driving, irons and putting — something Tiger doesn’t always say. At the moment, he sits at +1800 to go back-to-back at Augusta on the DraftKings Sportsbook. — Kenny Ducey
