Admit it: Ever since this event in 2009, you haven’t been able to look at Cink the same way. I mean, it’s not his fault that he defeated then 59-year-old Tom Watson in a playoff, depriving all of us one of the unlikeliest and coolest moments in the game’s history. Even Cink seemed a little depressed by robbing the world of a sixth Watson British Open title. He returns as a past champion this week who’s actually playing with a little momentum, based on finishes of T-2 and T-4 in the last month alone.
Here’s how Cink ranks in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
