The Outlook

In seven starts at the PGA Championship this decade, he’s missed the cut twice but finished 22nd or better the other five times, including three top 10s. Expect Mr. Consistency to put together another solid-if-not-spectacular performance this week. He’s a safe top-20 bet and possibly even top 10, but anything more than that might be asking a little too much.
