The 27-year-old Frenchman has some decent wins on the Euro tour in his career but has made only two cuts in majors so far. While Levy has four top-10 finishes in Euro events in 2018, including one victory, he has consistently struggled to compete stateside. He doesn’t have any huge weaknesses in his game, and he can put up some birdies, but he’ll really need to be on top of his game to compete in this field. He’s maybe worth a dart throw at less than 1% ownership in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker. That’s as far as I’m taking my exposure.
Here’s how Levy ranks in the U.S. Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
