The Outlook

Kisner is in awful form lately, missing four of his last six cuts since May. Even in the two he made the weekend, he didn’t crack the top 50. Combine that with terrible history at the British — he hasn’t made the top 50 in three appearances — and it’s hard to get excited about making a bet on the Georgia Bulldog. In fact, I’ll likely be looking to bet against him, be it to miss the cut or invest on the other side of his head-to-head matchup props.
