The Outlook

Grillo has burned me twice in major championships this season, and I’m not very interested in him this week given his recent form. In his past four tournaments, he’s missed two cuts to go along with a 19th-place finish and 66th last week at Bridgestone.


The Metrics

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

    • Long-Term Adjusted Round Score: T-38th
    • Recent Adjusted Round Score: T-123rd
    • Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green: 38th
