The Outlook

Kim is an ultimate boom-or-bust type play. He’s got the capability to win an elite event. We saw that at the Players Championship a couple years back. But he’s also capable of imploding. He didn’t play the weekend in either of his previous two PGA Championships. He doesn’t really have much form coming in, but that hasn’t mattered much when he does play well. He’s rarely on my card and won’t be this week.


The Metrics

Here’s how Kim ranks in the PGA Championship field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.

  • Long-Term Adjusted Round Score: T-99th
