The Outlook

Moore is popping in some of my models despite not having the distance off the tee or par-4 scoring that I really want to invest in this week. A lot of that is his recent play: He’s hit 71.2% of Greens in Regulation and 70.9% of fairways over his past four events. He’s putt it well, and the rest of his short game has been excellent. His upside is capped because of his driver, but he’s an intriguing bet to make the cut.

The Metrics

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