Ryan Fox owes absolutely nobody with his form this year. He was super winning the Alfred Dunhill Links two weeks ago, his second win on Tour this year. Ranks 3rd in Bogey Avoidance, 3rd in Putts Per GIR, 4th in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green and 20th in Strokes Gained: Around The Green. Confidence is sky high at present.
Zanotti isn’t a huge spoil the price considering how often he doesn’t win but he really profiles a treat. He ranks 3rd in Driving Accuracy, 8th in Putting Average, 12th in Bogey Avoidance, 10th in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green and 13th in Scrambling. Finished Top 20 at the last two BMW PGA Championships and the 2022 European Masters. Finished 4th here last year.
The Scot has been mixing form of late but likes it here with two Top 11 finishes in five starts. Ranks 2nd in GIR, 9th in Scrambling, 9th in Driving Accuracy and 14th in Bogey Avoidance. That is a lovely profile for here where accuracy off the tee and an ability to get out of trouble around the small greens is essential.
Kawamura’s price is completely ridiculous. The two key correlation tournaments are the European Masters and the BMW PGA Championship. Kawamura has finished Top 21 in each of the last two stagings of each. He has also finished Top 40 in all three starts here including a T-8 in 2020.
