Open Championship DraftKings Millionaire Maker Strategy Notes

To have a shot at the $1,000,000, you not only must have all six golfers make the cut, you’ll need the winner and all T25 finishes, potentially even better. 

With such soft pricing, most lineups will feature one or two (maybe even three) players listed above $9,000. By simply fading those players and building a balanced roster between $7,500-$9,000 you’re all but guaranteed to have a unique roster. I’m not recommending sticking exclusively to this strategy, but it’d be best to have some exposure to this price range.

With so many new players signing up for DraftKings this week, just to play in the Millionaire Maker, cash games (50/50s) are easy pickings. Create two or three different cash game lineups (to protect against the soft pricing) and enter as many large 50/50s as possible. You know, if you have any money left over after loading up in the Millionaire Maker.
