The Outlook

Just a year and a half ago, Sergio was getting fitted for his green jacket. Since then, he hasn’t been in the top 20 in any of the subsequent six majors, and he’s missed the cut in each of his past four, including last year’s PGA Championship.

His Long-Term Adjusted Round Score has really dipped as a result; he’s now below guys like Charley Hoffman and Matt Kuchar, for reference. His odds have adjusted accordingly — he’s 100-1 to win this week — but there’s nothing about his form that suggests he’s turned it around.
