The Outlook

Kokrak has been very good at times lately, notably finishing 12th at the Canadian Open and third at Greenbrier. He’s also been very bad, missing nearly every other cut over the past couple of months. Still, his metrics aren’t that poor: He’s always long off the tee, and he’s been nailing greens. The main issue is that his putter has been out-of-this-world terrible. If he finds some better putting luck this weekend, why not throw him out in a Milly Maker lineup?


The Metrics

Here’s how Kokrak ranks in the PGA Championship field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
