The PGA Tour will travel to Bermuda this week for the Butterfield Bermuda Championship. We all know that things tend to disappear in the Bermuda Triangle. That includes the top golfers in the field. This week’s tournament has one of the weakest fields of the season.
You have to be a diehard DFS Golf fan to want to throw money at this tournament. I am saving my bankroll for the better tournaments later this fall. I will provide my top 30 and my picks for DFS, the PGATour.com Fantasy Golf game and my Best Bets, but I am not going to waste to much time trying to make a case why the golfers I selected are good picks this week. We are just reaching into a barrel of trash and hoping to find something we can use.
Port Royal Golf Club is the host course this week. This will be the fourth consecutive season that the Bermuda Championship has been played on this course. It is a Robert Trent Jones designed course so you know it is a second-shot course. Port Royal Golf Club plays 6,800 yards in length and is a par 71. There are numerous bunkers strategically placed around the course to force the golfers to plot their way to the huge Bermuda greens.
This tournament always turns into a birdie fest because the course is rather simple. The last three years have seen at least 10 golfers post scores of -15 or better. The only protection for the course is the high winds which blow off the ocean.

BERMUDA CHAMPIONSHIP STRATEGY
You can use any strategy this week for your lineup construction. Usually I like to decide if I should use a “stars and scrubs” lineup construction strategy, or use a “balanced” approach. The field this week is all scrubs, so just select the best players possible. Most of my lineups will be constructed from the golfers in the $9K to mid-$7K ranges.
