The Outlook

DFS players may be cooling on Spieth. At the British Open and U.S. Open, he garnered under 9% ownership. He may be a wild card yet again, but he’s worth consideration since he leads the field with -2.3 average adjusted strokes on par 4s. Even though he’s not quite a bomber, he does excel in most facets of the game.
