2018 British Open: Why Chez Reavie Isn’t Worth a DFS Investment

Jul 11, 2018 6:07 PM EDT

For analysis of the top 90 golfers in the British Open field, check out this page. “Best odds value” and “Best matchup value” listed below are determined by a proprietary model built by Colin Davy. It factors in the course, plus a variety of weighted metrics and the betting odds (via Bovada). This isn’t meant to imply every player is worth a bet; we’re simply showing the most efficient way to wager on each golfer should you so choose.

The Outlook

The kind of player you love as a sneaky DFS pick in a somewhat random PGA Tour week, Reavie has never made a big splash in a major. In fact, he’s played only one previous Open Championship, missing the cut six years ago, and in 14 overall major appearances, he’s never claimed a top-15 result. He’s played some of his best golf this year, including a pair of runner-up results early on, but his top finishes tend to come on the West Coast — and no, that’s not the West Coast of Scotland.


The Metrics

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

  • Long-Term Adjusted Round Score: T-41st
  • Recent Adjusted Round Score: T-42nd
  • Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green: 34th

  • Strokes Gained: Approach: 26th
  • Long-Term Putts Per Round: T-24th
