The Outlook

Stanley had a solid week at the Bridgestone and will be popular among the longshots. His ball-striking number will make him a darling of the stat models. He just hasn’t been able to translate that into results in the majors yet. He’s missed the cut in all three of his previous PGA Championships, and his best finish in any major is a tie for 39th in 15 starts.
