Russell Henley has had a solid year with a win in Houston, two other top-10s and top-40s in each of the majors so far. One poor round kept Henley from getting into contention at the majors (76 round two, the Masters, T11 finish; 79 round four, U.S. Open, T27; 75 round three, The Open, T37), but he’s otherwise proven to be able to go low at any venue.

Henley’s stats are pretty solid across the board. He’s a positive in all major strokes gained categories, including ninth in putting. Averaging just a shade under 300 yards off the tee and placing 20th on Tour in greens in regulation, Henley has the tools to improve upon a career best T17 in 2015 in three starts at the WGC-Bridgestone.

Henley took last week off, so he should be rested and ready to roll in his 17th start of 2017.
