The Outlook

There might be some definitive parallels between Koepka’s impending week and that of last year at Royal Birkdale. Weeks after winning his first U.S. Open, he raced to a share of the first-round lead, then was T-3 after the second and third rounds before finishing a more-than-respectable T-6. Fresh off a successful U.S. Open title defense, don’t be surprised if Koepka enjoys a similar performance. He’s been remarkably consistent in major championships, and those early pro years playing the European Tour certainly won’t hurt him.

The Metrics

Here's how Koepka ranks in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
