Hank “the Tank” Lebioda comes into this week having made an impressive six straight cuts, and has now finished top-5 in back to back tournaments. He grades out amongst the top of our model this week, bolstered by his top-10 ranking in the field in Strokes Gained: Putting, Birdie or Better Gained, and Proximity from 200+ yards. He also ranks top-20 in Strokes Gained: Approach and Around-the-Green. On top of all this, he has ranked first in the field in Bogey Avoidance over the last three months. Lebioda grades out as one of the most elite plays on the slate for us, and we love targeting him again this week as one of our Must-Haves. Lock him in with confidence across all formats!


Must-Have #2: Kyle Stanley

Stanley grades out very well in our model this week, bolstered by ranking top-5 in the field in both Proximity from 125-150, Fairways Gained, Greens in Regulation Gained, and Strokes Gained: Approach. He also ranks top-20 in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee and Proximity from 150-175, with his only real struggle being his putting. While he does rank just outside the top-100 in Strokes Gained: Putting, we do believe this is less concerning given how elite he has been with his irons as of late. Stanley has rounded into form nicely, making each of his last six cuts on tour, racking up a top-10 finish at Colonial CC along the way. Stanley feels underpriced relative to the strength of this field, and we love targeting his scoring upside this week as one of our Must-Haves!
