User Ganesh ran away with CoinRoster’s golf fantasy contest on Sunday without even having eventual winner Gary Woodland on their roster. Sleeper pick Alex Prugh was the difference maker, who only cost $98 at the draft, but who finished -2. Users can view the final leaderboard here or by navigating to the fantasy golf category, then choosing the “settled” tab. Congrats to user Ganesh for winning 11x for 0.0114 BTC.
This week is the Canadian Open, and some of the world’s best golfers are in the great white north. Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Rory McIlroy are the favorites. CoinRoster fantasy golf drafting prices are top loaded on the best players, so the strategy to win might be focused on who can draft a cheap player who might contend.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Like most of his maligned season, Jordan Spieth’s week at the Valero Texas Open was a bit of a mixed bag. There were signs of promise, with back-to-back 68s leaving the three-time major winner just a shot out of the lead heading into the weekend, and there was a five-under 31 on Saturday’s back nine.

The PGA Tour stops at TPC San Antonio this week for the Valero Texas Open. The favorites are Rickie Fowler (11/1), Tony Finau (17/1), and Matt Kuchar (17/1). Rickie didn’t play at the WGC Match Play last week, so he’s fresh, compared to Matt Kuchar who at 40 years old, played a lot of golf last week as he reached the finals against Kevin Kisner.
Matt Kuchar, twice a winner in 2018-19, and Rickie Fowler spark a roster of more than a dozen players set to play one of the PGA TOUR’s longest-running events. J.B. Holmes (Genesis Open), Adam Long (Desert Classic) and Cameron Champ (Sanderson Farms) give TPC San Antonio five entrants with a win …
Each week, if the PGA Tour holds a stroke play tournament, CoinRoster posts fantasy contests in our Fantasy Golf category and betting pools for that tournament in our Golf Props category. The golf prop bets that we post are parimutuel pools on various tournament outcomes such as the tournament winner, which top players will make the cut, and a pool on whether there will be a playoff. There are a number of different pools that are posted for the entire tournament and also for each day of the tournament.
Parimutuel pools will be labelled as such. Users unfamiliar with parimutuel pools should click here to read a post on how they work.
Parimutuel pools will only go “in-play” if more than 1 user places wagers in that pool. If only 1 user places a bet in a parimutuel pool by the registration deadline, bets made by that user will be returned.
To place a bet in a golf prop parimutuel pool, click on the Golf Props category, then choose a contest and make a wager in that contest. You can view the amount of wagers in a contest by clicking the Contest Details link on the contest’s page.
Many of our Golf Prop parimutuel pools also have a progressive feature. A parimutuel progressive accumulates when no bets are made on the the winning outcome. If that happens, the pool is raked and the remaining amount gets added to the progressive and put up for grabs in the next related event.
For example, say more than 1 user bets in a parimutuel pool for which golfer will win the tournament. Then it turns out that one of the players without any bets placed on them wins the tournament. So no user has bet on the winning outcome. The amount in the pool minus the rake is then put up for grabs in next week’s pool. This way, users don’t loose the entire pool when volume is shallow.
This week the PGA Tour hosts a matchplay tournament with round robin matches starting on Wednesday this week, earlier than usual. Golf Channel will be also hosting a drawing show on Monday night. Click Here for a good description of the event provided by Golf Channel.
There is a betting pool on CoinRoster on who will win this week. Rory & DJ are the favorites at 10/1, but since the Dell Matchplay is a WGC event with a large purse, almost all of the world’s top players will tee off. Click here to view odds and bet on the Dell Matchplay.
