Welcome to my weekly fantasy golf model for the 2021 Butterfield Bermuda Championship!

Beginning in 2020, I developed a weekly rubric which offers a clear-cut ranking system based on data points weighted in a formula. So far, it's been a tremendous success. Here's a look at several PGA Tour winners since March 2021 and where they landed in the model:

  • Arnold Palmer Invitational: Bryson DeChambeau - No. 3
  • The Players Championship: Justin Thomas - No. 3
  • Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship: Joel Dahmen - No. 22
  • Valero Texas Open: Jordan Spieth - No. 9
  • Masters: Hideki Matsuyama - No. 16
  • RBC Heritage: Stewart Cink - No. 75
  • Valspar Championship: Sam Burns - No. 77
  • Wells Fargo Championship: Rory McIlroy - No. 2
  • Charles Schwab Challenge: Jason Kokrak - No. 8
  • the Memorial Tournament: Patrick Cantlay - No. 6
  • US Open: Jon Rahm - No. 3
  • Rocket Mortgage Classic: Cam Davis - No. 29
  • British Open Championship: Collin Morikawa - No. 3
  • The Northern Trust: Tony Finau - No. 18
  • BMW Championship: Patrick Cantlay - No. 2
  • Butterfield Bermuda Championship: Sam Burns - No. 1
  • Shriners Children's Open: Sungjae Im - No. 18
  • The CJ Cup at Summit: Rory McIlroy - No. 12
  • Zozo Championship: Hideki Matsuyama - No. 17

Let me walk you through the rubric's tenets and show off this week's results.
