He ranks Top 5 in the field in strokes gained tee to green and Top 15 in strokes gained approach.

Finau ranks Top 5 in the field in strokes gained tee to green and birdie or better percentage, he also ranks Top 10 in strokes gained approach, and Top 20 in strokes gained off the tee. Finau has gained strokes around the green in ten of his last twelve events, including strokes gained putting in eight of twelve.

Conners is an elite tee to green golfer that’s been a Top 25 machine over the last six months. He’s in amazing form and has made fifteen of his last sixteen cuts on tour, posting seven Top 10’s in that span.

He has shown no signs of slowing down and I will happily continue to play him until he dissapoints.

He’s coming off a Top 30 finish (29th) at The Valspar Championship last week and he’s finished 31st or better in nine of his last ten starts on tour.
