No one is coming into The Open Championship riding a hotter hand than Kevin Na. The last time we saw him, he won at Greenbrier with a weekend 65-64, which came on the back end of three top-six finishes in his previous five events. He has a very respectable four top 10s on the year, and, other than a stretch of three consecutive missed cuts in April, has been very consistent. Not playing the Scottish Open or the John Deere may leave Na with very little time to work on his game leading up to the Open, but he makes for a solid bet to make it to the weekend.
Here’s how Na ranks in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
