Must-Have #1: Hank Lebioda
Hank “the Tank” Lebioda returns to our Must-Have list this week, and he is far underpriced for his recent performance. He is coming in having made seven consecutive cuts on Tour, and has racked up an impressive three straight top-10 finishes to go with an additional two top-20 results. He grades out very well in our model, bolstered by a top-20 ranking amongst the field in Strokes Gained: Putting, Greens in Regulation Gained, and Birdie or Better Gained, while also being top-20 in Strokes Gained: Approach and Proximity from 200+ yards. He has shown minimal weakness to his game in his recent form, failing to rank outside of the top-50 in any stat that we factor into our model this week. With Lebioda being very underpriced, we will be locking him in with confidence across all formats to start our lineups this week!
Must-Have #2: Maverick McNealy
Mav McNealy grades out very well for us this week, bolstered by ranking top-10 in Birdie or Better Gained, along with ranking top-15 in both Strokes Gained: Putting and Off-the-Tee. He has rounded into form as well, making each of his last four cuts after missing at Kiawah, finishing no worse than 30th over this stretch that includes three top-25 finishes. The only real issue with McNealy has been that he ranks just 74th in Proximity from 175-200, but this is one of our lower weighted stats this week making it less of a concern. With his ample scoring upside, Mav becomes a great option to target this week across all formats and we love locking him in as our second Must-Have!
