The Outlook

I always have a soft spot for Lovemark on a course that rewards length off the tee, which Bellerive projects to do. His iron play is pretty hit or miss, but he’s good with the short stick and has shown he can scramble even when he misses greens. He doesn’t have much major history in his career, but if he was going to play well at one, it’d be the PGA Championship.
