The Outlook

Death, taxes, and betting on Tony Finau. We at The Action Network love him and the case for him winning is pretty simple: He’s one of the best players in the world, and for some reason he doesn’t get that respect from the betting or DFS markets. His Long-Term Adjusted Round Score is ahead of even the marks of players like Rory McIlroy and Francesco Molinari.

He will get a major (or more) in his career, and he has the distance to make it happen this week. I’m buying in the betting market, in DFS, everywhere — if you’re selling Finau, I’m buying.


The Metrics

Here’s how Finau ranks in the PGA Championship field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
