Stallings had some good moments earlier this year, finishing seventh at Pebble and fourth at the Genesis, but he’s been brutal since, missing five of his past seven cuts. He has distance, but the iron play just isn’t there to cut it at Shinnecock, and his Long-Term Adjusted Round Score suggests he’s not a player you should back in any form this week.
Here’s how Stallings ranks in the U.S. Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
