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.
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.
