The Outlook

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.

The Metrics

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.
