10:47 a.m. ET (GOLF) — J.B. Holmes withdraws from the PGA TOUR’s Workday Charity Open after Round 1 due to a shoulder injury
Holmes ($6,800; 19.0 DKFP) was scheduled to tee off at 1:21 p.m. ET on Friday for the second round of the Workday Charity Open but has since withdrawn, citing a shoulder injury. He would have joined Bubba Watson and Andrew Landry as one of the last groups to do so. This was the first event since the PGA TOUR resumed that Holmes played in, as his last appearance came at The Genesis Invitational where he finished T51 with rounds of 69-69-76-72. Holmes was roughly 3% owned in DraftKings’ Millionaire tournament and shot +1 in Round 1, finishing with 19 DraftKings fantasy points (DKFP).
- Ownership rate in DraftKings’ PGA TOUR Millionaire contest: 2.98%
- Total fantasy points: 19 DKFP
- Total score: +1
11:21 a.m. ET (GOLF) — Grayson Murray (lower back) withdrew from the PGA TOUR’s Workday Charity Open during Round 2
It’s been an abysmal run for Murray since the PGA TOUR resumed and the Workday Charity Open was the cherry on top. Citing a lower back injury for his mid-second round withdrawal, Murray was at +7 for the event, ending with 14 DKFP in total. Luckily, he was only owned in 0.24% of lineups for DraftKings’ PGA TOUR Millionaire Maker contest, but we certainly pour one out for the 0.24% of you. This will mark his third straight event missing the cut, as he also did so at the Travelers Championship and Rocket Mortgage Classic. It wouldn’t be a surprise if we didn’t see Murray in the near future.
- Ownership rate in DraftKings’ PGA TOUR Millionaire contest: 0.24%
- Total fantasy points: 14 DKFP
- Total score: +7
11:54 a.m. ET (GOLF) — Cameron Percy (rib) withdrew from the PGA TOUR’s Workday Charity Open during Round 2
This is the third withdrawal of the day as Percy ($6,200; 15.0 DKFP) follows both J.B. Holmes (shoulder) and Grayson Murray (back). As for Percy, it’s being cited as a rib injury, but like the two ahead of him, Percy wasn’t exactly having a good day. He shot +2 for the day after a +4 in Round 1, putting him way down the leaderboard at +6. Percy was only 0.22% owned in DraftKings’ PGA Tour Millionaire Maker contest, so this news won’t affect too many lineups.
- Ownership rate in DraftKings’ PGA TOUR Millionaire contest: 0.22%
- Total fantasy points: 15 DKFP
- Total score: +6
4:20 p.m. ET (GOLF) — Bo Van Pelt withdraws during Round 2
Van Pelt ($6,000; 17.5 DKFP) was +4 after Thursday and unlikely to make the cut. Given the multiple weather delays, it is not surprising he pulled out of the event Friday, though no official reason has been given for his withdrawal. This is unlikely to impact fantasy owners, as Van Pelt is 0.06% owned in the Millionaire Maker.
- Ownership rate in DraftKings’ PGA TOUR Millionaire contest: 0.06%
- Total fantasy points: 17.5 DKFP
- Total score: +6
