The Outlook

Expect to keep hearing Hossler’s name on weekends, as the 23-year-old out of California has game. He’s as hot as anyone right now, finishing sixth at the Quicken Loans National and second at the Travelers. He’s shown the ability to fit his game to a variety of course styles, and he definitely has the accuracy to be able to hang around at Carnoustie. It’s tough to bet him to win in his British debut, but he’s a great player to back for a top-25 or in DFS.
