The Outlook

Coming off a hot week in Memphis (sixth-place finish), Reavie seems to be on track to finding the form he had earlier in the year. His ability to consistently hit fairways and find greens will be his biggest asset this week. He has been known to be streaky on the greens, but two-putt pars go a long way at a place like Shinnecock. Reavie is a good bet for a top-25 finish this week.
