A promising year that began with two finishes of seventh or better in his first three starts has quickly dissolved into an amalgam of mediocrity, as Schniederjans hasn’t posted a top-30 result since Super Bowl Sunday. He made the cut as the world’s No. 1-ranked amateur in his only two previous major championship appearances, including a T-12 at the 2015 Open Championship, but it’s tough to believe that will portend more success this week considering his current form.
Here’s how Schniederjans ranks in the U.S. Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
