The Outlook

Uihlein has never been within the top 40 of a major event, and he’ll really need to turn around his current form if he wants that to change this week. He has the distance off the tee to compete, and he’s historically been solid hitting greens. Unfortunately, he’s typically wildly erratic with his driver, which will be a problem with Bellerive’s rough. His short game has been atrocious of late, too. He’s a talented golfer, but asking him to contend in this field might be too much.

The Metrics

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