Dunne had a string of hot play earlier this year, finishing in the top 10 in four of five events, but he’s since cooled off a bit. He’s really struggled to hit fairways… like, really struggled. His 50.4% Recent Driving Accuracy mark is one of the worst in the field, and that’s not an encouraging sign at a links-style course like Carnoustie. I won’t be backing him this week.
