Many PGA Tour members are getting a final links prep for The Open Championship next week.

DraftKings Picks

Matt Kuchar - $11,000 (16/1)

There are many great choices in the top tier.  Kuchar is having a career season and seems just as likely to be there on Sunday as anyone.  I will take the savings compared to Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy, who may already be focused on next week. He has many high finishes on links courses, including a T2 at this event in 2015.  I really like Kuchar not only this week, but next week at the big one as well.  

Rafa Cabrera Bello - $9,500 (25/1)

Perhaps some redemption for Cabrera Bello this week after letting the lead slip away on the back nine last Sunday.  He has shown a return to form recently and won this even in 2017. He plays link courses well and should bounce back from last week's disappointment. 

Bernd Wiesberger - $8,800 (33/1)

Wiesberger arrives in Scotland in great recent form.  He finished T16 at BMW International Open and T2 last week at Irish Open.  He won in May at Made In Denmark. Wiesberger is another good links player who can handle the wind.  He is ranked eighth on tour in greens in regulation. He is underpriced and is a must-play for me this week.

Grant Forrest - $7,100 (125/1)

I am going with a local for my final pick.  Forrest has had a good couple weeks with a T37 at Andalucia Masters and a solo 14th last week at Irish Open.  The young Scotsman is ranked 27th on tour in greens in regulation and 52nd in SG: putting. Look for the hometown gentleman to put up some fireworks this week.
