The Outlook

He’s contended in two of the past four major championships, earning a T-7 at last year’s PGA and a share of runner-up honors at last month’s Open. It certainly wouldn’t be a shocker to see Kisner contend yet again, as he tends to up his game at the bigger events. A safer play is for him to reach the weekend, as he’s missed just one cut at a major in the past three years.


The Metrics

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