The Outlook

So far in his career, Fowler has done just about everything except win a major. He has, however, played very well in the majors, with nine top-10 finishes, including three at the U.S. Open. He ranks 36th on tour in total driving, which will play a huge factor this week, and he’s 18th in GIR, the other stat I’m eyeing at Shinnecock. Fowler is coming off a top-10 finish at the Memorial the last time we saw him. Look for him to once again be in the discussion on Sunday at a major championship.

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