Draftkings fantasy golf picks: British Open 2018

I think it's going to pick up from now onwards.

Woods, who finished tied 32nd at this year's Masters and missed the cut at the US Open, will be one of the last players to tee off in the first round, going out at 3:21pm (1421 GMT) in a group with Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and Scotland's Russell Knox.

"What I never understood is, when you win the 2000 US Open by 15 shots, we're not talking about five shots we're talking about 15, within two weeks he's having a lesson", said the super-fit, silver-haired veteran.

It's not so much a fanboy situation at his third Open Championship at Carnoustie, but New Zealand's big hope sees genuine benefits in following the golfer who still pulls the biggest galleries. He qualified for the Open Championship through results in Asia past year.

Stone has come to Carnoustie fresh from a spectacular final round of 60 to win the Scottish Open at Gullane last weekend, and South Africans have previous at winning the Claret Jug in these parts.

Fowler will accompany Spain's Jon Rahm and Chris Wood of England when the trio launch their British Open campaign at 1009 local time on Thursday.

"It sounds bad, but it feels a bit more like another tournament rather than something else which is a good place to be". There will be plenty of time for chit-chat after raising the Claret Jug.


"They just had blank spots on the tee spots, so I put my name down", Herbert said. "There's no surprises where the bunkers are and what the greens are like; it's purely going to be about the conditions".

"Brandt's obviously won several times on the PGA Tour and played in Ryder Cups, so he's been and done a lot in the game".

But despite carding a 72 - 1 over and 6 shots off current leader Kevin Kisner - he is adamant he can still defend his title if he improves his execution.

The last five majors - and seven of the last nine - have been won by Americans, including Jordan Spieth's victory at Royal Birkdale 12 months ago and Brooks Koepka's successful recent defence of the US Open.

"But you've got to focus on just playing the golf hole, because it is the same at the end of the day".

"I'm not putting any pressure on myself to perform". Because I put my name down with Dustin (Johnson) on Monday, got brushed, and I put my name down with Rory (McIlroy), got brushed.
