List can hit the ball a mile (311.6-yard Long-Term Driving Distance), and he ranks fifth in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green this season. That said, he could struggle at Carnoustie if he’s constantly missing the narrow fairways. He missed the cut at the U.S. Open, hitting just 53.6% of fairways, and in his last tournament hit just 39.3% of them. It’s also worrisome that List has made the cut in just one of his six major championship events.
Here’s how List ranks in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
