The Outlook

A victory at the Italian Open two weeks ago seemingly came out of nowhere for the man called Thunder Bear, but should provide plenty of good vibes entering this week. “I’m not going to change anything,” he said after that win. “But it gives me a huge confidence boost, especially this time where I had one top-20, I think, the whole year. So to come here and win gives me a lot of belief and confidence.” Olesen has more experience, though, at each of the other three majors, having only made one U.S. Open start in his career, a missed cut five years ago.
