The Outlook

Dufner has awesome history at the PGA Championship … if you’re looking several years ago. He was top five in three of four years between 2010 and 2013, winning that final year at Oak Hill.

He’s been boom-or-bust this season, with an emphasis on the bust: He got into the top five at the Players but hasn’t really been in contention in any other tournament in 2018. He’s been struggling with par 4s, which is not a great sign for Bellerive. The long-term talent is there, but I won’t end up with much Duf in DFS given his current form.
