The Outlook

I’ll certainly have some exposure to Rory McIlroy given the $400 discount you get on him compared to Dustin Johnson on DraftKings.

McIlroy has played well this year, ranking 10th in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green, and he has historically dominated at majors: He’s made 31-of-39 cuts, and at the PGA Championship he owns two wins and five top 10s, missing the cut just once since 2009.


The Metrics

Here’s how McIlroy 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-13th
    • Recent Adjusted Round Score: T-7th
    • Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green: 9th
    • Long-Term Driving Distance: 3rd
    • Strokes Gained: Approach: 46th
