The Outlook

Which Bryson will show up this week: The big-time ball-striker who’s shown a propensity for getting hot at the right time or the guy who seemingly becomes overly flummoxed at the earliest signs of frustration within his game? There’s obviously a lot of talent here, but it’ll be interesting to see how he harnesses that talent. Made cuts in each of the past four majors is a nice start.
