The Outlook

Fox has been running hot of late. He finished T-6 at the Scottish Open and second in the Irish Open a week before that. Additionally, Fox possesses a 68.3 Recent Adjusted Round Score over the past six weeks. He can hit GIR (71% over the past 75 weeks) and bomb the ball (315.9-yard Long-Term Driving Distance). However, Fox struggles to hit fairways (49.3% Long-Term Driving Accuracy), and he struggles to recover around the green, evidenced by his 39.1% long-term scrambling rate. Given the lack of balance in his game, he’s likely someone I’ll end up avoiding at Carnoustie.


The Metrics

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