Grillo ranks him 62nd in driving distance at the Tour, while in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee he is 17th. The Argentinian may not have the shortstop his game needed to compete in a field like this, but he certainly lives up to it as an FRL pick.
Brendan Steele (+8000, BetMGM)
After a strong run in June, Brendan Steele has recently cooled off, missing the cut in two of his last three starts with T30 in between. These his MCs ended his run of seven consecutive cuts (full-field his event only) of Steels.
