The Outlook

It’s been a breakthrough season for List, though he’s still chasing after that initial PGA Tour victory. Following a contention at Firestone, he’ll be looking to improve upon his career-best major finish of T-33 – from 13 years ago! – and should have a solid chance to accomplish it. But asking for much more than that might be setting the bar of expectations a little too high. For those reasons, perhaps he’s better as a DFS value play.
