Kim is sort of interesting since he’s missed just two cuts in his past 13 events and hasn’t missed one since March. He’s shown the ability to compete on tour with a second-place finish at RBC Heritage, but outside of that, Kim has been mediocre, finishing 24th or worse in all but two events in his 13 appearances this year. It’s hard to figure out why he’s the same price as Chesson Hadley and more expensive than Chez Reavie on DraftKings; both are far superior to Kim in all facets of the game. You’re better off investing your hard-earned dollars elsewhere.
Here’s how Kim ranks in the U.S. Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
