The Outlook

Walker has won a major and has popped in big spots throughout his career, but the Open Championship hasn’t been one of them. He hasn’t had a top-25 finish in five appearances in this major, which is enough reason for me to steer clear this week.

Here’s how Walker ranks among others in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
