The Outlook

If you’re following Walker’s PGA Championship trend, he’s due for a great finish this year. In his past five appearances, he’s gone MC, top 10, MC, won the dang thing, and missed cut last year. Unfortunately, I can’t get on board with that given his recent play, which might be the worst in the field among legit tour golfers. He’s missed the cut in three of his past four events, and he’s been missing greens like crazy during that time period. Even in his “good” showing during that span — the Canadian Open — he hit 37.5% of fairways. That, my friend, will not fly at Bellerive.

The Metrics
