The Outlook

To Keegan or not to Keegan is an important question each week. This week, I am Keegan-ing in a big way. He’s in good form of late, and he’s a former PGA Championship winner, taking down the major in 2011. His all-around game is spot on right now: He’s long off the tee, and he also ranks first in the world in Strokes Gained: Approach. That’s a combination I will absolutely invest in, even if his putter haunts my dreams.


The Metrics

Here’s how Bradley 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-38th
    • Recent Adjusted Round Score: T-24th
