Draftkings Best US Open Final Showdown Pick 6/16/24

This Sunday, Draftkings golf fans will get to see the final round of the 2024 US Open. Let’s take a look at the final round of this event from a DFS perspective.

Before I discuss my Draftkings player selections, let’s take a look at where the final round of the 2024 US Open will be played.

The first round of the 2024 US Open will be played at the Pinehurst Resort (Pinehurst Number 2) in Pinehurst Village, North Carolina. The golf course has a par 70 and measures approximately 7,548 meters.

*It’s notable that 12 of the last 15 US Open winners were first-time major winners.

I wanted to emphasize that the purpose of this article is not to provide an exact DFS lineup.

That said, this article will provide multiple player options in an effort to help the reader generate a unique lineup that hopefully has the potential to win a DraftKings GPP (Guaranteed Prize Pool) match!

For those readers who don’t know, the rules and scoring for DraftKings single-round showdown contests are vastly different from the traditional classic contests offered by the platform.

If you would like to check out the specific rules for the single-round showdown matches, feel free to check out the DraftKings website.

Here are my DraftKings player selections for the final round of the 2024 US Open.

Since the beginning of February, Bryson DeChambeau has played ten tournaments (LIV Golf and PGA Tours combined). In the 10 events just mentioned, DeChambeau had six top-nine finishes, including a second-place finish at the 2024 PGA Championship four weeks ago.

After completing this afternoon’s third round at the 2024 US Open, Bryson DeChambeau sits solo in first place with a cumulative score of seven under par through three rounds.

Ludvig Aberg $10,200

Ludvig Aberg has three top ten finishes in his last four events on the PGA Tour, including an impressive second-place finish at the 2024 Masters tournament in April. I certainly like Ludvig Aberg’s chances of playing at a high level tomorrow in the final round of the 2024 US Open.
