Easy Fairway Specialists

The Fantasy Golfanac looks at the performance of each golfer on a course-by-course basis. This is crucial when it comes to finding value in daily fantasy golf formats or any weekly fantasy golf format that requires gamers to find value plays.

In this section, we look at performance when golfers tee it up on a course where fairways are easy to hit. We have defined easy-to-hit fairways as any course where the field averages 65 percent or higher in terms of fairways hit.
