The Outlook

Here’s a fun bit of trivia for you: Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s given name at birth was … Anujit Hirunratanakorn. (Hey, I would’ve gone with Barnrat, too.) Hirunratankorn – sorry, Aphibarnrat – has made the cut in each of the year’s first three majors, with a best finish of 15th at the U.S. Open. His tendency is to get off to a hot start, then fade on the weekend. If you want to tag him with a potential first round leader prop, I don’t hate that idea.
