The Outlook

Noren was a bet for me in March at +7500, and that number has been cut about in half to around +4000. I don’t know if I’d be in at the new number. Noren has played fine this year. He picked up a win in France, but on this side of the Atlantic, he’s cooled since his run back before the Masters where he appeared poised for a PGA Tour breakthrough. I can’t imagine he’ll get a ton of buzz this week after a poor result at the Bridgestone, so he might be worth a fantasy flier, but I’m not expecting too much from my outright play.
