The Outlook

We were high on JT last week, and he rewarded bettors with a win at the Bridgestone. His game is suited much better for non-links courses, and he’s shown what he can do at a PGA Championship, getting his first major there last season. One thing that makes the DFS marketplace unique from the betting marketplace is that prices don’t change once released. DraftKings released his salary before last week’s victory, which means he’s way underpriced now at $9,700. He’ll be the most popular DFS play of the week.

The Metrics

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

    • Long-Term Adjusted Round Score: T-3rd
    • Recent Adjusted Round Score: 4th
    • Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green: 30th
    • Long-Term Driving Distance: 7th
    • Strokes Gained: Approach: 79th
