The Outlook

Dufner’s metrics don’t jump off the page, but he’s managed to make six straight cuts at the British Open, along with back-to-back top 23 performances — including a T-14 last year. That said, he’d be hard to trust given he has missed five cuts in his past nine tournaments while finishing 42nd or worse in two others.
