The Outlook

Ah, finally — a wrong has been righted. Within golf circles, the fact that Kizzire, a two-time PGA Tour winner this season, was forced to qualify for the U.S. Open left a bad taste in a lot of mouths — one that only became worse when he failed to make it through sectionals. He’ll get his chance to compete in another major this week, although a string of middling results since his last win six months ago shouldn’t leave any of us too optimistic about his chances of contending.


The Metrics

Here’s how Kizzire ranks in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
