The Outlook

Day’s game is tailor-made for PGA Championships, and he has absolutely immaculate history at these events, finishing in the top 15 in each of his past five starts and winning in 2015.

Further, he comes into this week in elite recent form: His 67.4 Recent Adjusted Round Score is the third-best mark in the field. Put simply, he should not be $9,000 on DraftKings and is thus an elite play in DFS.
