Make the Turn:
If this is your first time reading “Make the Turn,” then you’ll quickly find out it’s a great place to turn for weekend only golf picks.
Last weeks results, @dfsgolfer led you to the glory land with Hoffman and Berger so it should have been a good weekend. I was on vacation and did not enter weekend lineups.
No MDF this week so we can fire up just about anybody, but lets make sure we pick guys that can score. Until DK institutes a positional point change for weekend only DK, the only way to score points is by what the golfer scores on each hole. If 1 of your golfer’s doesn’t play all 36 holes, you can basically throw your money down the drain. I’ve personally found my success on the weekend playing 50/50s and double ups because half of the guys playing dont read the rules. I think everyone is beat up this week from the chalk getting smoked and should find some titl lineups from guys that dont normally play weekend.
Draft Kings Contests: Lock is at 6 am eastern, so lets be ready to go tonight

All the Double Ups
Weekend Only (WO)
“Weekend Warriors” These are golfers that are outside the top 10 headed into the weekend, who we expect to be moving up the leaderboard. To move up the leaderboard on moving day, you need to make birdies and eagles, and that means DK points, no matter the format.
Rickie Fowler ($10,100)- I don’t like Rickies price, but he is still Rickie and he still scores, so i will have him in a few lineups, this is a pure game theory play, he made no birdies today and he actually pry shouldn’t be rostered at his price and therefore be under owned, but i could be way off cause everyone loves Rickie.
JB Holmes ($8700) – A guy that can light up the scoreboard, hes been known to go low on Saturdays so if he can find a little more accuracy of the tee, he could knock in a few more birdies.
Xander Schauffle ($8000)- Xander played great last weekend and battled this week when his approach game was just off slightly. He was .60 strokes gained putting today. If he could hit more than half the fairways on the weekend he could make a few birdies. He gets stronger as the week goes on.
Keegan Bradley ($7900)- No Keegan sweat needed the past two weeks. Keeps has been playing great golf and is gained 1.7 strokes Putting on Friday Keegan also hit 80 percent of fairways so he is staying out of trouble.
Kevin Tway($7600)- I have joked for the last two months on the weekend just play Tway, do what i say, okay!. But really, the guy scores and thats all you can look for on the weekend lineups, he had 4 birdies and an eagle on Friday and actually only hit 30 percent of fairways. Good be a big weekend if he finds some accuracy .
Sunday Staples – these are guys inside the top 10 of the leader-board, but don’t expect their game to drop off at all as we expect them to continue to make eagles and birdies, making them must haves on your weekend only teams.
David Lingmerth-($9200) (-10) 1st Trying to not get cute here and play the man that already has 12 birdies already, at 9200 you can still roster other quality guys. His putter is locked and loaded with a 1.6 strokes gained mark. I think he continues to play well this weekend
Marc Leishman ($9600) (-2) T10 Leishman just missed a few too many fairways the first two days but played good golf outside of that, with his putter leading him to a .826 strokes gained putting average i think he hangs around the Top 10 and makes a few more birdies on the weekend.
Danny Lee ($8500) (-2) T10 Danny Lee was just a monster on the green this week so far and gained more than 2 strokes putting on Friday. He mad a big push last weekend and continues to play great golf.
Daniel Summerhays ($7800) (-6) 3rd Summerhays is 4 shots back from the lead and knows he needs to continue to make birdies. He has made 10 birdies and an eagle so far this week. with his price at 7800 he may be high owned but nobody seems to roster him even in tourneys where the course is tough he usually succeeds.
Good Luck this weekend and feel free to reach out with any questions to the Tour Level Twitter account or myself @Scottimac11
