Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Garrick Higgo captures first PGA TOUR victory at Palmetto Championship

After dominating the European Tour, Higgo ($9,000; 122 DKFP) entered the Palmetto Championship and won it, taking his first PGA TOUR title in just his second career start. He shot three-under on Sunday, giving back two strokes gained on the front with two bogeys before carding an eagle on 12 and a birdie on 14 to rise back up the leaderboard. Chesson Hadley ($6,700; 102 DKFP) seemed in prime position to win the tournament entering Sunday with the lead, but he hit just four greens all day and finished four over. Still, he had a putt on 18 to force a playoff that he missed, landing him in a tie for second place with names liker Tyrrell Hatton ($10,200; 105.5 DKFP). — Kenny Ducey

Tyrrell Hatton closes strong at Palmetto Championship to finish T2

Hatton ($10,200; 105.5 DKFP) already had his many owners excited entering Sunday, sitting within striking distance at Congaree in a tie for fourth, but he lifted their spirits even more with a closing-round 68 to finish in a tie for second. Hatton, who was 21.15% owned in the $700K Flop Shot, birdied the second, third and fourth before finding trouble with back-to-back bogeys on six and seven. He finished with a pair of birdies on the back nine, giving him plenty of DKFP on Sunday. Dustin Johnson ($11,400; 86 DKFP), who was the second-most owned player at 21.66%, wasn’t as kind to DFS players on Sunday with his one-under round of 70, falling six spots into a tie for 10th. — Kenny Ducey


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Third-round play suspended at Palmetto Championship

Due to thunderstorms in the area of Congaree Golf Club — located in Ridgeland, South Carolina — play for the third round of the Palmetto Championship was suspended at 5:55 PM ET on Saturday and will resume on Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m. ET. Among the golfers who have yet to finish Round 3 are Chesson Hadley ($6,700; 103.5 DKFP), who currently leads at -14, and Harris English ($9,900; 84.5 DKFP), who trails Hadley by four shots through 17 holes of the third round. — Alex Hunter

Bo Van Pelt joins top five on Saturday at Palmetto Championship

With play suspended before the final few holes could be finished, Van Pelt ($6,100; 71.5 DKFP) had the best completed round of the day at Congaree Golf Club, making four birdies and an eagle along with a bogey to move from T20 to T5 by the end of the day. Harris English ($9,900; 84.5 DKFP) had a four-under round going with one hole to play and was four shots behind solo leader Chesson Hadley ($6,700; 103.5 DKFP). Seven other players shot four-under rounds, including Tyrrell Hatton ($10,200; 77 DKFP), Luke Donald ($6,800; 66.5 DKFP), Danny Lee ($7,000; 65.5 DKFP) and early leader Wes Roach ($6,500; 64.5 DKFP), who bounced back from a disastrous second round. — Zach Thompson


Round 2 Recap — Friday

Chesson Hadley leads after second round of Palmetto Championship

Hadley ($6,700) was not considered a contender heading into this week’s Palmetto Championship, but he is sitting atop the leaderboard heading into the weekend. He started with an opening-round six-under-par 65 on Thursday and followed that up with a five-under-par 66 on Friday. His score of 11-under-par for the tournament gives him a two-shot lead over Dustin Johnson ($11,400), who is in sole possession of second place. Hadley missed the cut in eight of his previous 10 outings, so it’s not surprising that he was just 0.4% owned in DFS. Despite owning the lead, his +400 odds to win the tournament on DraftKings Sportsbook put him well behind Johnson’s odds of +100. — Matt LaMarca

Brooks Koepka headlines missed cuts at Palmetto Championship

Coming off his impressive runner-up finish at the PGA Championship, Koepka ($11,100) presented the second-best odds to win the inaugural Palmetto Championship and was the fourth-highest owned golfer in DraftKings’ $700K Flop Shot Tournament at 20.2%. However, after an opening-round one-over-par 72 and then a 73 on Friday, the four-time major champion will, unfortunately, be sent home early. Lucas Glover ($8,600) will also miss the cut at Congaree Golf Club, sitting at +7 overall following the second round. Given that he is an ambassador for Congaree, which is making its debut at the PGA TOUR level this week, Glover ended up being the most-owned player in the Flop Shot Tournament. — Alex Hunter


Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Wes Roach scurries out to first place at Palmetto Championship

Entering the Palmetto Championship, Roach ($6,500; 63.5 DKFP) had made the cut in six straight starts, but only two of those were PGA tournaments. The other four were on the Korn Ferry Tour. Well, Roach is showing he belongs with the big boys, shooting a seven-under in in the first round of the Palmetto Championship to sit atop the leaderboard. He notched six birdies, one eagle and bogeyed only once. DraftKings Sportsbook has Roach at +2500 to win it all. In second, there are four golfers who shot six-under: Chesson Hadley ($6,700; 48.5 DKFP), Dustin Johnson ($11,400; 47 DKFP), Doc Redman ($8,000; 45.5 DKFP) and Erik van Rooyen ($7,500; 45.5 DKFP). DraftKings Sportsbook has Hadley at +3300, Johnson at +225, Redman at +1600, and van Rooyen at +1200 to win it all. — Stan Son

Lucas Glover off to rough start at Palmetto Championship

Glover ($8,600; 4 DKFP) was the top-owned player in the $700K Flop Shot at 24.03%, but his start couldn’t have been much worse. He is only a few shots clear of the very bottom of the leaderboard, shooting a five-over 76 in Thursday’s opening round. Glover had five bogeys all told and failed to record any birdies. Dustin Johnson ($11,400; 47 DKFP) was the next-most owned played at 21.66% and fared much better. He finished with six birdies in a bogey-free round to grab a share of second place at -6. Tyrrell Hatton ($10,200; 13.5 DKFP), who was 21.15% owned, is right in the middle of the field at even par, a shot ahead of another popular golfer this week in Brooks Koepka ($11,100; 13 DKFP), who is +1. — Kenny Ducey
