DraftKings Reignmakers PGA TOUR Approach Drop Info

The second Reignmakers PGA TOUR premium drop is here! This set, named Approach, will be available for a limited period on DraftKings Marketplace starting on April 4 — so get excited! Premium sets are the best way to collect all your favorite golfers and secure season-long usage out of your Digital Golfer Cards.

The Approach set will be split into weekly curated pack drops corresponding to the next five events starting with the major next weekend in Georgia. These packs will be available for a limited time each week, with drops beginning each Tuesday at 4 p.m. and ending Thursday at contest lock.

DraftKings Reignmakers PGA TOUR: The Masters

It’s here! The year’s first major championship has finally arrived. For some, it’s just another golf tournament, but for others, it signifies the start of spring and the changing of the season. Unfortunately, winter may return to this area over the weekend, with unseasonably cold temperatures set to roll in. However, it wouldn’t be a major championship if there weren’t some challenges to go along with it. Jason Rouslin dives into the event and provides a few targets for the week and beyond.

The Masters is the only one of the four major championships played at the same course every year — Augusta National Golf Club. This year marks the 87th edition of the event, with 88 golfers competing. However, only 52 of them are available to play in the DraftKings Reignmakers PGA TOUR. Of those 52, two have opted not to have cards (Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose), and the remaining players are either amateurs, past champions or are not on the PGA TOUR. This makes it the most exclusive tournament in golf, and it should provide plenty of excitement this year.

As a “premium event,” the Masters has a total prize pool of $350,000, with a top prize of $20,000 at the ELITE and REIGNMAKER tiers.
