US PGA Championship 2024: Fantasy DP World Tour ones to watch

All eyes are on Valhalla this week for the US PGA Championship. But who are you picking in your team on the DP World Tour's official Fantasy game for the second men's Major of the year?


The 106th US PGA Championship returns to Valhalla Golf Club this week for the second men’s Major Championship of the season, marking the fourth time Valhalla has played host, tied for second most in the history of the event.

Last year, it was Brooks Koepka who claimed his third US PGA Championship title with a two-shot victory over Viktor Hovland and Scottie Scheffler at Oak Hill Country Club. In doing so, he became the sixth player to win the championship on three or more occasions - joining Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus (five), Tiger Woods (four), Gene Sarazen and Sam Snead (three).

He returns in form and with a recent victory under his belt, but he'll have stiff competition in his title defence, going up against an in form Rory McIlroy and Scottie Scheffler, who both have back-to-back wins heading into this week.

The last time the tournament was played at Valhalla it was McIlroy who took home the trophy, and ten years on from that triumph he'll be hoping to replicate that as he goes in search of a fifth Major title. Meanwhile, World Number One Scottie Scheffler will be looking to continue his dominance after winning The Masters last month.

Elsewhere, Jordan Spieth has a chance to complete the Grand Slam with victory this week, while several DP World Tour stars head across the pond looking to impress - including Asian Swing winner Sebastian Soderberg. So who should feature in your Fantasy Team this week? We've selected our Favourite, our Form Horse and our Wildcard to help you with that choice!

Favourite - Scottie Scheffler

The World Number One is unquestionably the favourite to earn a second leg of the Grand Slam this week, and arrives to the Louisville venue having just become a new dad to son Bennett with his wife Meredith.

Scheffler, who is a four-time winner already this year, comes to the second Major of the year with back-to-back victories to his name. Having earned his second Green Jacket with a second Major win at The Masters in April, Scheffler followed up with another immediately triumph at the RBC Heritage.

The American hasn't finished worse than T17 in 2024, and leads the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained Total, Tee To Green, Approach the Green and Around the Green. The only question mark around Scottie is his consistency on the greens - currently ranked 97th on Tour in that category - but with multiple wins already under his belt, that hasn't been a detrimental factor!

Form horse - Rory McIlroy

The Northern Irishman returns to the scene of his 2014 PGA Championship triumph at Valhalla this week as he goes in search of his first Major since he claimed that title here ten years ago.

He arrives in Kentucky in exceptional form with two consecutive wins to his name, having claimed both the Zurich Class with Shane Lowry two weeks ago and last week's Wells Fargo Championship.

With top tens in seven of his last nine Major championships - including his last two PGA Championships - McIlroy himself said it feels like the stars are somewhat aligning when it comes to his chances this week. And it helps that this is a venue where he's had success.

“Going to a venue next week where I have won, it feels like the stars are aligning a little bit," he said.

"But I have a lot of golf to play and a lot of great players to try to beat. I am going into the next Major of the year feeling really good about myself.”

Wildcard - Sebastian Soderberg

Sebastian Söderberg may have seen victory slip away at the Volvo China Open but a third successive top-five finish meant he topped the Asian Swing Rankings to earn a spot in his first Major since the 2022 U.S. Open Championship.

The Swede is on a hot streak, and while this might be his first Major in two years and his US PGA Championship debut, there's no doubt that his form is one of the best leading into this event. In his last three starts on the DP World Tour, Soderberg had back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Hero Indian Open and ISPS HANDA-Championship, before his recent tie for third at the Volvo China Open.

Having not missed a cut since July last year, Soderberg also ranks first on the DP World Tour for Stroke Average, Total Strokes Gained, Birdies and Par three scoring, second for Strokes Gained Putting, and fourth for both Strokes Gained Approach and Strokes Gained Tee to Green.

And while he hasn't been in the winner's circle since the 2019 Omega European Masters, he's certainly got the form to do something special this week.
