Reed is almost always an auto-fade for me in every event, especially this week. This week I want players with strong ball striking and approach games considering the penal rough that isn’t far off from the greens. While Reed is a solid putter and is great around the greens, he’s hit just 63.8% of greens in regulation over the past 75 weeks. If he’s not hitting greens, he’s probably not getting birdie looks, and over his past 50 rounds, Reed ranks 113th in Strokes Gained: Approach and 103rd in Strokes Gained: Ball Striking, per Fantasy National.

The U.S. Open probably isn’t a tournament where you’re going to find your form, and Reed is coming off an event where he lost -4.4 strokes on approach and has finished 28th or worse in every event since March.

While his short game and putting could keep him hanging around, he’s not a player I’m particularly high on.
