Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Bryson DeChambeau runs away with the U.S. Open Championship

The only fantasy golfer with over 100 DKFP this week at the U.S. Open Championship was Bryson DeChambeau ($9,900; 102.5 DKFP), who also was the only golfer to finish under par by shooting a -3 in the final round to finish -6 for the tournament. He had a six-shot margin of victory over Matthew Wolff ($7,700; 86 DKFP), who shot a +5 on Sunday and still finished solo second at even-par for the tournament. The win was DeChambeau’s second since the Tour restarted, his seventh overall on the PGA TOUR and his first major championship. He finished T4 in the PGA Championship and will look to post another strong finish at the one remaining major of 2020 with The Masters coming up in mid-November. — Zach Thompson


Dustin Johnson one of just four players to shoot par or better on Sunday

After starting the week looking beatable, Winged Foot Golf Club showed how difficult it could be as the best golfers in the world all faded back to over par, with the exception of champion Bryson DeChambeau ($9,900) and runner-up Matthew Wolff ($7,700). Only DeChambeau was under par on Sunday while Dustin Johnson ($11,500; 61 DKFP) shot an even-par 70 to improve to T6 and post a top 10. The other two rounds of par came from Erik van Rooyen ($6,900; 48.5 DKFP) and Taylor Pendrith ($6,100; 47.5 DKFP), who both finished +10 for the tournament and T23 overall. Both van Rooyen and Pendrith were good values along with Will Zalatoris ($6,700; 70 DKFP), who finished T6, and Zach Johnson ($7,100; 55 DKFP), who finished T8. — Zach Thompson


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Matthew Wolff cards low round of the day, grabs 54-hole lead

Matthew Wolff ($7,700; 86 DKFP) fired a five-under 65 on Saturday at Winged Foot to give him a two-shot lead at the U.S. Open and the low round of the day. Wolff carded five birdies on the front nine before giving one back at 16, only to stick his approach shot on 18 and make a 10-foot birdie putt to finish the round on a high note. He leads Bryson DeChambeau ($9,900; 72 DKFP) by two shots heading into Sunday, with Louis Oosthuizen ($7,600; 67 DKFP) sitting in third four shots back. Alex Noren ($7,100; 42 DKFP) had the second- best round with a 67, and three golfers including Rory McIlroy ($10,500; 51 DKFP) shot a 68. — Kenny Ducey


Patrick Reed implodes on back nine Saturday at U.S. Open

Reed ($8,500) appeared to have everything on cruise control at the U.S. Open on Saturday. He was one-under-par on the front nine, bringing his overall score to five-under-par for the tournament but his back nine was absolutely disastrous. He shot an eight-over-par 43, which dropped him all the way to three-over-par overall. Instead of leading, he now sits in a tie for 11th heading into Sunday’s final round. He’s a full eight shots behind leader Matthew Wolff ($7,700), so he’ll have a lot of work to do to try and get back into contention. He was the second-most popular DFS option of the week given his average ownership of approximately 25.1%, so plenty of DFS players will be hoping he can pull it off. — Matt LaMarca


Round 2 Recap — Friday

Patrick Reed leads after second round of U.S. Open

Reed ($8,500) shot an even-par 70 on Friday but that was good enough to vault him into first place after the second round of the U.S. Open. He currently sits at four-under-par, which gives him a one-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau ($9,900) and a two-shot lead over Justin Thomas ($10,700), Harris English ($7,900) and Rafael Cabrera-Bello ($6,600). Thomas entered the second round as the leader but dropped back following a round of three-over-par. Reed was one of the most popular DFS options of the week, checking in with an average ownership of approximately 25.1% and he’s the current betting favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook at +400. That said, DeChambeau and Thomas are not far behind at +450. — Matt LaMarca

Tiger Woods misses U.S. Open cut

After a brutal second round where Woods ($8,600; 23 DKFP) shot seven-over par, he won’t play into the weekend. This is Tiger’s first missed cut in 2020 although he hasn’t been especially competitive in the events he’s played in. In eight tournament appearances this year, Woods only has two top-25 finishes. A few other big name players also failed to make the cut this week. In addition to Tiger, Justin Rose ($8,400; 17 DKFP), Gary Woodland ($7,800; 22 DKFP), Tommy Fleetwood ($8,900; 21 DKFP) and Collin Morikawa ($10,000; 19 DKFP) all missed the cut. — Greg Ehrenberg

Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Justin Thomas cards 65 to take first-round lead at Winged Foot

The first round isn’t officially over yet, with the final threesome being called off the course due to darkness, but no one will overtake Thomas ($10,700; 56 DKFP), whose five-under 65 gave him the 18-hole lead at the U.S. Open. After giving back his opening-hole birdie just a couple of holes later, Thomas went on to birdie four of his next eight holes, and capped off his round with a birdie on 18. The 27-year-old checks in as the seventh-most owned player on DraftKings at 17.67%, trailing the most popular player, Xander Schauffele ($10,100) by roughly eight percentage points. He’s aiming to win his second career major, capturing the title at the 2017 PGA Championship. — Kenny Ducey


Collin Morikawa struggles in first round of the U.S. Open

One of the most popular bets of the week, Morikawa ($10,000; 6 DKFP) closed as one of the betting favorites to win the tournament at +1700 on DK Sportsbook. After today’s round, Morikawa backers can’t be thrilled. He shot a six-over par 76 and is much closer to last place than first. Just to make the cut, the young phenom is facing an uphill battle. Morikawa’s chances don’t look good and his odds are now +25000 to win his first major. — Greg Ehrenberg
