The Outlook

One of the biggest surprises on the PGA Tour this season, Hadley has proven himself as one of the better ball-strikers, and the data backs that up. He owns three top 10s in 2018 to go with three top fives at the beginning of this season last fall, but missed cuts at each of the last two majors could be a foreboding preview to what he might witness this week.
