    Golf Premium Launch!

    We just rolled out our premium golf package for everyone! There is a ton of work that goes into generating this product each week. This year, if you subscribe to "golf" that gives you access to both PGA and EURO projections and analysis. Here's what's included in the FULL package for 2017!


    • Weekly Podcast
    • Pro-Tip with Cheat Sheet
    • Lineup Alerts
    • DraftKings Points Projections
    • Value Ratings
    • Histograms + Plots
    • Ownership Projections
    • Downloadable Stats
    • Downloadable Simulation Results
    • Live Premium Chat


    Weekly Podcast – Each week we’ll talk about the slate from a birds-eye view and then dive into our favorite plays for cash games and GPPs.
    Pro-Tip with Cheat Sheet – Our Pro-Tip is a qualitative supplement to our broader data-driven product. The Cheat Sheet reflects our favorite golfers in each price range
    Lineup Alerts – Each week up until lock we’ll send any important weather or injury news that wasn’t covered in content.
    DraftKings Projections – Our forecast for each player on every DK golf slate. Includes odds for each player to win/T3/T5/T10/T30/MC/MDF and projected number of birdies, pars and eagles. Our value column highlights our best per-dollar plays. Projections are updated throughout the week as the field changes.
    Plots vs. Salary – Plots of point projections, birdies, place probabilities and shot data against salary.
    Downloadable Histograms – Visualize the probability distribution of each player’s DraftKings points for the event.
    Downloadable Simulation Results – Perform your own analysis on the simulations that we aggregate for our projections.
    Live Premium Chat - This live chat is available for premium subscribers to interact with our analysts and other premium golf subscribers. Lots of great discussion goes down in here each week!

    COMING SOON

    Ownership Projections – Beginning in March we’ll return to projecting ownership % for each golfer on the slate.

    Don't want to discourage anyone from giving this a try - but it's been my experience that golf touts are the least reliable and least helpful of any sport across the entire industry. I tried the premium package last year and wasn't very happy with it - so I will just pose this general question:

    Why should I reconsider a premium golf package and what really differentiates yours from some of the others in the industry?

    Hey jwp, thanks for reaching out. That is a super good question. First of all I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the premium package last year. We did a lot of reflection in the offseason about the product and how we can make it better. Here's what we think we did poorly last year:
    (1) The only true way to interface with the content was the projections – and not everyone prefers a table like format
    (2) The product shoved a little too much data in your face, and a lot of that data either was irrelevant, redundant or lacked context
    (3) The timing on content each week wasn't consistent
    (4) We weren't engaging with our subscriber base

    Here's what we did to fix that this year:
    (1) The pro tip has become a more important part of the product, where it both discusses the context of the slate and highlights our favorite values in an reading-friendly way
    (2) We started doing a pod! The first two were pretty fun. The pods have been more about high-level strategy discussion rather than talking about specific guys. The pod is also open to the public. So before you subscribe, definitely listen to those
    (3) We rebuilt a lot of our data processing and expect to have content out early on Monday each week.
    (4) In the next few months we'll be inviting people to test new product features before we release them. You're welcome to sign up for testing even if you're not a sub – we'd love the feedback, and hopefully you will enjoy the new stuff. Also, we opened a second chat room where anyone can talk directly to our internal slack. We've had some great discussions in there, and personally I'm a lot quicker to responding to that than the chat on this site. Though the night before lineups lock I'll usually be around both

    Thank you again for your feedback and let us know if you have any specific areas we can improve in
