Underdog took the NFL fantasy football world by storm this season with their best ball product, and now they’re venturing into the PGA world.

Up first is a set of tournaments for the major championships only. These PGA Underdog best ball rankings are powered by Alex Blickle’s baseline strokes gained and expected course fit strokes gained projections, with additional input from Kyle Murray and Josh Culp. Our PGA team is off to a flying start in the 2023 season, so it’s time we take advantage of that on Underdog, as well. 


These rankings will be updated when necessary throughout the winter, and then on a weekly basis in the weeks leading up to The Masters in April. (The initial rankings were done by Alex Blickle. Subsequent updates are from Josh Culp and the FTN team.)
