The Outlook

I’m keen on balanced golfers this week, and that’s what Cook brings to the table. Over the past 75 weeks, he’s hit 69.5% of fairways and 68.7% of Greens in Regulation.

Additionally, he’s been excellent at limiting bogeys, averaging just 7.7 per tournament while boasting a 63.6% long-term scrambling rate, and his -1.2 average adjusted strokes on par 4s is the eighth-best mark in the field.

He’s my favorite play under $7,000 on DraftKings, and I’d be willing to take a look at some made-cut and head-to-head props with him.

The Metrics

Here’s how Cook ranks in the PGA Championship field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
