Li is interesting since he finished third in last year’s British Open, and he managed a 19th-place showing at the U.S. Open. We at least know he’s capable of playing in tough course conditions. It’s also encouraging that Li has hit 69.5% of GIR, while averaging 14.2 birdies per tournament over the past 75 weeks. Li’s primary concern is his +2.0 average adjusted strokes on par 4s and 47.4% scrambling rate within the same time frame.
Here’s how Li ranks in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
