The Outlook


The 24-year-old was itching for a win this season, finishing in the top-five three times between March and May, and he finally got it at the Memorial thanks to three rounds in the 60s. He’s playing some of the best golf in the world right now, ranking fifth in Recent Adjusted Round Score and top-15 in both Strokes Gained metrics listed below. He’s well-known because of his irons, specifically their odd, uniform length, but he’s able to compete in every facet of the game. He’s long enough, his irons are hot and he’s shown great putting upside. I wish I had gotten a ticket on him a couple months ago, but I’ll still be looking to buy him in matchup props and DFS. If his top-10 and top-25 odds are interesting, I’ll definitely do that as well.
