The Outlook

The Masters champ has been playing solid golf lately with a couple top 10s over the past two months, including a fourth at the U.S. Open. His form in the majors was insanely good with three straight top fours before a 28th-place finish at the Open. He’s not really too high on any model I ever run. His stats just don’t pop up the way many elite guys do. But when he’s in the mix, you know he can close. With that said, winning two majors is a historic year for anyone, and it will be interesting to see if he can join that type of company.
