The Outlook

An comes into the PGA Championship in great form, averaging a +18.24 DraftKings Plus/Minus with 70% Consistency over his past 10 events. Over his past 24 rounds, he ranks 16th in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green.

That said, over the past six weeks, he’s hitting just 50.5% of fairways, which could be detrimental on a course that is lined with trees and has troublesome thick rough.

In the British and U.S. Opens, An struggled to hit fairways and subsequently finished 51st and 67th, respectively. I’ll have some exposure to him, but I won’t go overboard.
