Gay has some positives to his game, as he ranks 18th in Strokes Gained: Putting and 43rd in Total Strokes Gained. That said, he’s not someone I am interested in, as he boasts a Long-Term Adjusted Round Score of 70, along with a massive 41% missed-cut rate over the past 75 weeks. Making the cut is half the battle, and he’s missed the cut in nearly half of his PGA events.
