The Outlook

Stenson has immaculate history at PGA Championship events, which is interesting since they usually favor bombers. Stenson is one of the shorter players off the tee in the field, and yet he’s been inside the top 25 in each of his past five PGA Championships. That’s a credit to how amazing he is in every other facet of the game, and that’s still true. He’s fourth in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green and second in Strokes Gained: Approach. He’ll likely be under-owned in DFS, which could provide leverage in GPPs.
