1Justin Thomas$7,344,040$9,000,000Expectations were sky high for Thomas entering 2019-20 and he did not disappoint. Thomas won three times before the playoffs and scored nine top-10s in just 17 starts prior to the Tour Championship, where he tied for second. At just 27, Thomas is right in the middle of his prime, and while he set the bar pretty high this past year,

1Justin Thomas$7,344,040$9,000,000Expectations were sky high for Thomas entering 2019-20 and he did not disappoint. Thomas won three times before the playoffs and scored nine top-10s in just 17 starts prior to the Tour Championship, where he tied for second. At just 27, Thomas is right in the middle of his prime, and while he set the bar pretty high this past year, he has more than enough game to play even better. Thomas' next conquest will be multiple majors, and he's more than capable of racking them up.
2Rory
 McIlroy
$4,408,415$8,000,000While many golfers benefitted from the mid-season break, McIlroy struggled to find his pre-COVID-19 form. Prior to the break, McIlroy racked up six top-5s in six starts. After the break however, McIlroy failed to score a single top-10 in his first seven starts. There's no reason to panic however as McIlroy still has plenty of game. The biggest question now is his closing ability as he's shown cracks while trying to finish off wins in recent years.
3Jon 
Rahm
$5,959,819$7,000,000Rahm was cruising prior to the break this past year, as he posted four top-10s in just five starts, but he struggled to find much traction after the PGA Tour's return in June. That changed when he picked up a win at the Memorial Tournament in July and another at the BMW in August. Rahm is clearly an elite golfer already and all he's missing is a major. That should change sometime very soon and while he'll likely post some big numbers this season, his cap number is just too high for salary cap purposes this season.
4Dustin Johnson$5,837,267$7,000,000Johnson simply wasn't himself prior to the mid-season break this past year. In four starts, his best finish was T7 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, which isn't bad, but when you consider that he usually dominates early in the season, there was reason to speculate about his game. He laid all speculation to rest after the break, however, as he posted two wins in his first eight starts and then captured the Tour Championship at East Lake. Johnson might be nearing the end of his peak years, but he still has enough gas left in the tank to produce at a high level. He probably set the bar too high for salary cap purposes this year, but he's still a high first round pick in draft formats.
5Bryson DeChambeau$4,998,495$7,000,000No one dominated the headlines quite as much as DeChambeau this past season and that was due to both his physique and his game. DeChambeau made waves out of the break when he debuted his new bulked-up frame, but it wasn't just for show as his game was on-fire as well. DeChambeau posted top-10s in each of his first four starts after the break, culminating with a win at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. His production fell off a but after that, but you can expect that with an off-season to further figure out his swing mechanics, he'll be as good as ever this upcoming season.
6Brooks Koepka$1,123,227$6,500,000Questions surrounded Koepka entering the 2019-2020 season as he was still recovering from an injury that halted his previous season and things did not go well early on. The break due to COVID-19 actually came at a good time for Koepka as he was able to fully heal and for a while, he looked like his old self. However, he simply wasn't able to find his top form for any prolonged stretch and the season as a whole was a bust. Koepka is surely to regain his form at some point however and his deflated salary looks like an opportunity for the upcoming season.
7Collin Morikawa$5,250,868$6,000,000The 23-year-old is an absolute star in the making. He was able to breakthrough on the big stage at the PGA Championship, putting together a closing stretch for the ages that will be remembered by his tee shot at the par-4 16th that set up an eagle. Morikawa's ball striking is already one of, if not the best on the PGA Tour right now. He lost strokes both around the greens and with the putter, showing that his potential is even higher in 2020-21.
8Xander Schauffele$3,813,636$5,000,000Schauffele has been incredibly consistent in his short time on the PGA Tour. He's topped $4 million in earnings in each of his first four seasons on the PGA Tour and yet, he seems to be leaving something on the table each season. Schauffele has four wins already and six runner-ups in just four seasons and there's little doubt that he's going to produce at a high-level for many years to come. One of these years he's going to really bust out and at his current price, he's worth a long look in salary cap formats because this could be the year.
9Tony 
Finau
$2,932,286$5,000,000In his six years on the PGA Tour, Finau has earned roughly $20 million, and yet, he still has just one win to his name. It's quite baffling that a guy with so much talent and is so often in the mix, only has one win on his resume, but that's the situation entering year number seven. Finau had yet another productive season this past year and there's no reason to think his production will fall off this year either. As such, his number is in range to be considered as a salary cap option this season.
10Patrick Cantlay$2,118,336$5,000,000After earning more than $6 million during the 2018-19 season, expectations were extremely high for Cantlay, but unfortunately, he never found his best form. Cantlay played well prior to the break, with a runner-up at the Shriners and a 4th-place finish at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, but he struggled after the break. Cantlay managed just one top-10 in his first six starts out of the break as he failed to find much momentum. Cantlay is a great bounce-back candidate however as his cap number for this season is simply too low to pass up.
11Harris 
 English
$3,299,366$4,700,000English had a renaissance season in which he completely reversed his career arc. He was so balanced in all parts of his game that the season is quite repeatable. He didn't win, but he had a second, a third, six top-10s and a whopping 13 top-25s (not including the Tour Championship). Having qualified for East Lake, it has gotten him into many big events — including some no-cut WGCs — that he will earn some "free" money this season.
12Webb Simpson$5,097,742$4,500,000Simpson was one of the rare players on the PGA Tour that played well both before and after the break. Simpson won in early February at the Waste Management Open and he picked up another win in his second start after the break at the RBC Heritage. The question is whether his recent surge is a sign of things to come or a blip on the radar. Considering he's topped $5 million in earnings just three times in 12 years on the PGA Tour, it's hard to imagine he can play much better than he did this past season. With that in mind, he holds little value in a salary cap format, but he's a strong late-1st-round or early 2nd-round candidate in draft leagues.
13Sungjae 
Im
$4,337,811$4,000,000It took a pandemic to slow Im down this past season, but he still managed to put up some great numbers. Im gained notoriety for playing nearly every week during his rookie season and he was on a good pace in his sophomore season as well and then the interruption in play hit and his momentum was stalled. Im was playing his best golf just prior to the break and he never managed to get back on track. Although he should continue to produce at a high level this season, his number was set too high this past season for salary cap purposes.
14Patrick 
Reed
$4,250,060$4,000,000Reed has been one of the most consistent golfers on the PGA Tour since joining in 2013. Since his sophomore season, Reed has posted earnings of at least $3 million every season and he's posted victories in seven of his eight full seasons on the PGA Tour. Reed is only 30, which means he's still in his prime. His upside is still not quite clear though and he did post a pretty big number this past season, one which makes it tough to take him in a salary cap situation.
15Hideki Matsuyama$3,665,825$4,000,000Matsuyama has been the model of consistency in his eight years on the PGA Tour, but surprisingly, he's had just one really impressive year. Surprising because Matsuyama is often thought as one of the best players in the world and yet he has surpassed $5 million in earnings just once. His 2019-20 season was much like most of his seasons on the PGA Tour, very productive, but not elite. Perhaps an elite season is on the horizon, but to expect that this season is just pure speculation.
16Abraham Ancer$2,903,306$4,000,000Ancer has made quite the impression in his first three years on the PGA Tour. Although he's been unable to find a victory in his short time on the PGA Tour, he's put himself in contention on several occasions. Even though this past season was shortened by the pandemic, Ancer managed to post a career high in earnings. HIs number is set pretty high for this season and if you take him, it'll be based all on potential, but Ancer looks like someone who could continue to improve for the foreseeable future.
17Viktor Hovland$1,982,275$4,000,000Many young players on the PGA Tour struggle with consistency, but that's never been the issue for Hovland. Hovland has finished inside the top 25 in half of his 24 starts as a professional on the PGA Tour. He also picked-up his first win on the PGA Tour this past season and while that win came against a weaker field, the "real" wins are coming. Hovland's cap number is not discounted much from the shortened season, but he's still a bargain at his current price.
18Jason 
Day
$1,943,898$4,000,000Day earned more than $9 million in 2015 and for a time, he was among the best players on the PGA Tour. His game slipped quite a bit in recent years, but he finally found some momentum this past season after the resumption of play in June. Day posted an impressive run of four consecutive top-7 finishes from July though August and although he didn't finish the season all that well, his prospects look good for this season. Day's number is in a good place for salary cap purposes this season and while he's not quite a "must-have," he's pretty close.
19Rickie 
Fowler
$947,309$4,000,000Fowler has accomplished a lot in his decade on the PGA Tour. He has five wins and 14 runner-ups, yet the question of when he's truly going to break out follows him into every season. It certainly didn't happen this past season as he posted his worst numbers since joining the PGA Tour, but that provides a heck of an opportunity for salary cap leagues this year. Fowler is a must-have in salary cap leagues this season as he should rebound to something near $4 million in earnings.
20Daniel 
Berger
$4,439,420$3,900,000After only posting one top-10 result in the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open in the 2018-19 season, Berger has improved immensely and emerged as one of the best players on Tour. He came into the suspension of play with three consecutive top-10s and picked up where he left off with a win, a runner-up, and two third place finishes since the re-start of play. Berger has been solid all-around, ranking in the top 15 in SG: Tee-to-green and SG: Putting in 2019-20.
21Tyrrell 
Hatton
$3,434,867$3,800,000Hatton did not make that many starts on the PGA Tour in 2019-20, but when he did tee it up he was almost always a factor. His numbers were quite impressive ranking top-30 in both SG: Putting and SG: Tee-to-green, which put him inside the top 10 on Tour in SG: Total. Hatton also led in birdie average. The Englishman has shown he can be a consistent winner and is heading into the prime of his career at age 28.
22Scottie Scheffler$2,833,438$3,500,000What a rookie season for the former Texas Longhorn. He notched double-digit top-25s and secured a spot at the Tour Championship. After a mid-season lull, he turned it on down the stretch and could have won multiple times. Scheffler's ball striking provides reason for optimism, ranking eighth in SG: Off-the-tee and 17th in SG: Tee-to-green for the season. He also was top-15 in birdie average and scoring average. Scheffler's short game should continue to get better going forward.
23Tiger 
Woods
$2,083,038$3,500,000Woods won the Tour Championship in 2018 and he won the Masters in 2019, which meant there was plenty of reason to be excited about 2020, but after an early-season win in October, nothing really panned out for Woods as he was unable to sustain any momentum through the disjointed season. While Woods was once on of the easiest guys to project, he's now nearly impossible to predict. The variables in-play for Woods are like any other, including age, health, and an incredible upside. At this point, all you can do is project a healthy season and if that's the case, he should improve enough upon his cap number from this past year.
24Tommy Fleetwood$1,025,676$3,500,000Fleetwood had gained a lot of momentum over the past couple season and then the pandemic hit and everything stopped for him. Fleetwood was one of a few players that did not resume playing on the PGA Tour after the resumption of play in June and if really impacted his overall numbers. Fleetwood joins the pack of guys you probably need to take in salary cap formats this upcoming season though as his number is really low and there's no reason to think he can't get back to his 2018-2019 levels this season.
25Matthew Wolff$2,224,348$3,300,000Wolff waited all of three professional starts to notch a win at last year's 3M Open. After that we saw a lot of inconsistent play, but at the end of the 2019-20 campaign he really started to heat up. Wolff's length will always be a big weapon, but he looked more dialed in with his irons down the stretch. His short game may always be an issue because of his unique takeaway on the full swing, but his upside is still tremendous.
26Marc Leishman$3,109,752$3,000,000At 36 years-old, it's pretty clear what Leishman is. He's going to win or threaten to win a couple times per season, but a handful of top-10s and earn something around $3 million. Sure, he posted an amazing number of nearly $6 million in earnings in 2017, but that's been the only season outside of the expected range. Perhaps this past season could have been another outstanding season, but with the pandemic, Leishman was again stuck around $3 million. Expect something similar this season and that makes him a tough selection for salary cap purposes.
27Adam 
Scott
$2,272,434$3,000,000Scott has been all over the map over the past six seasons on the PGA Tour, but it looked like he was hitting his stride early this past season and then the pandemic hit and Scott lost all momentum. Scott won the Genesis Invitational in February and he was already near $2 million in earnings for the season at this point. Then the pandemic, the break and when the PGA Tour returned, Scott was nowhere to be found. Scott found his way back to the PGA Tour in August, but it was too late. His number is in a nice place for the upcoming season however and he's among a bunch of guys that should be considered for salary cap purposes.
28Kevin 
Kisner
$2,266,752$3,000,000Kisner is very consistent, but he's not going to blow anyone away with his game. He nearly reached $5 million in earnings in 2017, but he's since fallen back into his normal range, which is around $3 million. He likely would have reached $3 million under normal circumstances this past season, which is why it's reasonable to expect right around that range for the upcoming season. Kisner is getting closer to 40, but he still likely has a couple high-end seasons remaining.
29Gary Woodland$2,195,131$3,000,000Woodland has always been a solid player on the PGA Tour, but his 2018-19 season set the bar much higher than he was accustomed to. His 2019-20 season was good, it looked much like most of the other seasons he's had on the PGA Tour, but in comparison to his previous season, it looked like a disappointment. What that season did however was reset the clock on Woodland for salary cap purposes. He's now in-play again in salary cap leagues and should be given some consideration.
30Matt 
Kuchar
$1,515,585$3,000,000Kuchar struggled during the 2017-18 season, but bounced-back nicely with over $6 million in earnings during the 2018-19 season. The 2019-20 was more like the former however as Kuchar never found any momentum. He posted a runner-up at the Genesis Invitational, but that was his only top 10 in his first 16 starts of the season. Kuchar will turn 43 this season and while he should improve on his numbers from this past season, his high-end might be more limited than it used to be.
31Justin 
Rose
$965,656$3,000,000Rose is coming off his worst season in over a decade, which while concerning, is also an opportunity. Yes, he did turn 40 this past season and golfers tend to see a dramatic drop in production after the age of 40, but Rose's drop was so dramatic, it's hard to believe that age was the only factor. This past season was that craziest we've ever witnessed and there's no way to gauge how each player handled it. Perhaps Rose struggle more with the changes than the rest, but whatever the reason for his drop in his production, a bounce-back is almost inevitable this year.
32Cameron Champ$2,290,839$2,800,000Second season on Tour, second season with a win the fall. In 2019-20 he got it done at the Safeway Open which will get him into the Masters in November. Bryson DeChambeau barely nipped Champ this season in driving distance and SG: Off-the-tee, but both are in their own category of length. Champ's game got better as the season went on, but control with the irons should still be his top priority heading into next season.
33Kevin 
Na
$2,794,402$2,750,000Na has really turned up his production over the past few seasons on the PGA Tour and even during the abbreviated season this past year, he managed to put up some really solid numbers. It helps when you pick up a victory, but Na has done that in each of his past three seasons. Though he should post solid numbers again this season, his cap number is set a bit too high. As such, he's not a great salary cap option for the upcoming season.
34Billy 
Horschel
$2,383,908$2,750,000Horschel has been on the PGA Tour for a decade now and in that time he's had some great seasons, some poor seasons and some good seasons. More often than not, he falls into the good seasons category though, which makes him a reliable option in most formats, but not a great option for salary cap formats. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this season as his cap number is right in the "good season" range for this season.
35Cameron Smith$2,372,487$2,750,000Smith appears to have a lot of talent, but he's been unable to find much consistency in his five years on the PGA Tour. He did pick up his second career win this past season, but out side of that win, there wasn't much to get excited about. Still, the upside remains high and if he can find more consistency, like he did in 2018, he could be in for a big season. His cap number is fairly high though, so the only reason to take him in a salary cap format is if you believe that breakout is imminent.
36Joaquin Niemann$2,914,136$2,600,000Niemann started last season off with his first career win at the Greenbrier. He flashed in a couple other events last season, but left you wanting more. Niemann's iron play is very impressive, ranking inside the top 20 on Tour in SG: Approach and proximity to the hole. If the putting and short game can take a leap in his third season, a breakout campaign is certainly possible.
37Sebastian Munoz$2,864,142$2,500,000Munoz rode his maiden PGA Tour win at the second event of the season, the Sanderson Farms, all the way to the Tour Championship. It's hard to count on that again, so regression is in order. He also tied for third at the RSM, generating about 70 percent of his regular-season points from those two events. On the other hand, qualifying for so many big events, including some no-cut WGCs, will give him some "free" money to boost his total.
38Byeong Hun An$2,283,951$2,500,000An is one a small number of golfers on the PGA Tour that wasn't greatly affected by the shortened season. An teed it up 22 times this past season, which was on par with his previous three seasons and his earnings number was the second highest of his career. An should continue to improve this season, but since his cap number was not greatly affected by the pandemic, there's simply not much value there in salary cap leagues.
39Matthew Fitzpatrick$2,109,709$2,500,000Fitzpatrick had a solid campaign in his first year as a full time PGA Tour member with four top-10s and only two missed cuts. His putting led the way, ranking second in strokes gained at over 0.9 per round. It was enough to keep him inside the top 20 in SG: Total for the season.The Englishman is on the shorter end, so he needs to improve with the irons to take his game to the next level.
40Paul 
Casey
$1,868,952$2,500,000Casey's career on the PGA Tour has been one of dramatic ebbs and flows and entering this past season, it appeared as though he was riding a high, but his results showed that a dip may be imminent. Then again, the disruption of the pandemic may have more to do with his struggles than a drop in his game, but he will turn 44 this season. As such, his deflated cap number for this season might not be quite low enough to take him in a salary cap situation.
41Bubba Watson$1,565,323$2,500,000Perhaps no one on the PGA Tour over the past decade has seen the wild swings in earnings that Watson has. He's made over $5.5 million three times in the past seven seasons, but he's also failed to crack $2 million in three of those seasons. After a down 2018-19 season, he was expected to bounce-back this past season, but that didn't happen. His cap number is still very low entering this season however, which makes him a very intriguing salary cap selection for this year.
42Jordan 
Spieth
$1,138,146$2,500,000Spieth set the bar so high early in his career that it's almost impossible for him to live up to expectations. With that said, the bar has gradually slipped in recent years and suddenly everyone gets excited when he's simply in contention. Spieth has shown signs of his old self over the past couple seasons, but he simply can't put four rounds together. He'll get it figured out at some point and as long as his cap number stays this low, there's no reason to leave him off your salary cap team this year.
43Chez 
Reavie
$1,123,769$2,500,000It's not often that someone finds their game in their mid-30s, but that's exactly what Reavie has done. Prior to this past season, Reavie had shown significant increases in earnings every season since 2016. The pandemic put an end to that, but Reavie still managed to put up some decent numbers. Reavie is an interesting choice for salary cap purposes this season as his number is pretty low, but his upside seems limited.
44Francesco Molinari$183,740$2,500,000It took Molinari a long time to finally break through on the PGA Tour and the fact that he was able to back-up his brilliant 2018 season with a strong season in 2019 was very impressive. This past season however was nothing near impressive. Even prior to the break, Molinari was struggling, but the fact that he failed to come back at the resumption of play left a big question mark entering this season. With that said, his number is too low to pass up for salary cap purposes and he's definitely a "must-have" in that format this year.
45Brendon Todd$3,390,258$2,400,000Exceeding all expectations throughout a bounce-back beyond belief during the 2019-20 season, Todd notched back-to-back wins in November at the Bermuda Championship and Mayakoba Golf Classic after missing four consecutive cuts from the Greenbrier through the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to begin the fall series. A rapid rise to the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings at the time didn't bother Todd, as he immediately collected another top-5 at the RSM Classic following his victories. He would contend here and there throughout the remainder of the season but a couple Sunday meltdowns caused him to fall to 156th in Round 4 scoring average. Nonetheless, it's been quite a resurgence for the 35-year-old who contemplated leaving the game altogether after missing 39 of 44 cuts across a three-year span from 2016-18. Todd is top 6 on Tour in driving accuracy, scrambling and one-putt percentage.
46Ryan 
Palmer
$2,724,926$2,400,000Palmer put together a very good season at age 43, notching nine top-25s. His ball-striking was very strong, ranking top 30 in SG: Off-the-tee, SG: Approach, and SG: Tee-to-green. When the Texan is tidy around the greens and rolling it well on them, he's usually right there. Palmer is getting up there in age, so I could see a dip off in performance at some point soon.
47Adam Hadwin$1,710,808$2,300,000Hadwin wasn't quite as good with the putter this season, but he made a lot of gains in terms of ball striking that led to very consistent results. The Canadian only missed one cut all season and posted three top-10 results. A better putting season and Hadwin gets back to East Lake.
48Doc 
Redman
$1,129,549$2,300,000Redman flashed his potential down the stretch of the season with some strong ball striking. He ranked top-15 in SG: Approach, FIR percentage, and GIR percentage. The short game does still need to be cleaned up, but that is the case with many young players. Redman no doubt has the firepower and he might be in for a breakout campaign in 2020-21.
49Ian 
Poulter
$1,034,334$2,300,000Poulter statistically had a very solid season last year, ranking top-40 in SG: Total and scoring average. His ball striking was just well down, which led to him needing a great year with the putter to be able to get the finishes he did. Poulter still only ended up with one top-10, but he also only missed one cut.
50Sung 
Kang
$1,560,024$2,250,000Kang picked up his PGA Tour during the 2018-19 season and although he failed to find a win this past season, he still managed to put up some strong numbers. Kang has gradually improved throughout his seven seasons on the PGA Tour and he's likely get better this season as well, but his cap number isn't discounted quite as much as some others. As such, he's not a great option for salary cap purposes this season, he's merely someone that should be considered as a secondary option.
51Lanto 
Griffin
$3,188,586$2,200,000Griffin flashed his all-around prowess and gained strokes across the board throughout the 2019-20 season, which was highlighted by a win at last October's Houston Open amidst a streak of six consecutive top-20s from the Greenbrier to the Bermuda Championship. More recently, a T10 at the BMW Championship during the second leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs allowed him to advance to the Tour Championship at 16th in the standings, eying his first trip to East Lake in just his second season on the PGA Tour. In 76 measured rounds, Griffin was inside the top 100 in each strokes gained subcategory.
52Joel 
Dahmen
$2,120,973$2,200,000Dahmen put together his best season to date in 2019-20, notching a career-high five top-10s. Ball striking led the way for him, as he was 30th in SG: Tee-to-green and and fifth in proximity to the hole. Another $2 million season is certainly within reason.
53Adam 
Long
$2,186,193$2,100,000Long quietly followed up his rookie year on Tour with an impressive one in the 2019-20 season, with two-runner up finishes and his second-straight year qualifying for the BMW Championship. He seems too often be forgotten about as a late-bloomer, but Long is a steady iron player who also improved dramatically with the putter this year. Although his lack of distance makes it hard for him to compete on longer courses, he's a good streamer on courses that negate that and rely on precise approach play.
54Richy Werenski$1,716,407$2,100,000Werenski broke through for his maiden win, albeit in the Barracuda. But being an oppo event, it's not like where half his season earnings came there. He had two top-3s and seven total top-25s, finishing 39th in points. He appears to be on the rise.
55Dylan 
Frittelli
$1,507,497$2,100,000Frittelli followed up his 2018-19 season in which he picked up his first win with a respectable season with a better than 2:1 made/missed cut rate and three top-10s. It's a little concerning that his SG: Off-the-tee and SG: Approach numbers both dipped to around the Tour average, however. He's fully committed to playing on the PGA Tour over the European Tour as well. Not an exciting pick but a very safe one.
56Brendan Steele$1,739,131$2,000,000Steele has been all over the map in recent years, but after a poor 2018-19 season in which he earned little more than $500k, Steele bounced back with a solid season in 2019-20. Steele joined the PGA Tour full time in 2011 and has averaged about $1.5 million in earnings each season. With his struggles of two seasons ago behind him, look for Steele to continue his upswing this season and get near $2 million in earnings.
57Corey Conners$1,498,121$2,000,000Conners had a break out 2018-19 season where he picked up his first PGA Tour victory and nearly $3 million in earnings. His numbers this past season, while good, weren't exactly on par with his previous season. Considering his rookie season wasn't the best, Conners' upside is still in question. During a normal season, where cap numbers weren't discounted as much, Conners would be a good salary cap selection, but since there are so many great options for the upcoming season, Conners is simply one that should be considered.
58Louis Oosthuizen$1,312,138$2,000,000Oosthuizen won his first and only major in 2010, while a non-member, but he used that victory to take full membership on the PGA Tour the following season. In his 10 years as a full time member of the PGA Tour however, Oosthuizen has failed to pick up another win. That's not to say he hasn't been close, but for some reason, he just can't break through. He remains a consistent force on the PGA Tour, but his upside is limited now and even at this discounted price, he's not a "must-have."
59Maverick McNealy$1,293,984$2,000,000McNealy is only 24 and showed some real progress, making 17 of 23 cuts with six top-25s, three of which doubled as top-10s. He could see a jump this season.
60Si Woo 
Kim
$1,074,246$2,000,000Si Woo Kim set the bar awfully high in his rookie season of 2016 as he posted over $3 million in earnings, but his production has gradually dropped in each of the past four seasons. Gradually dropped until this past season that is as the pandemic-shortened season saw his production cut in half vs. the previous season. With that said, Kim is a work horse and plays almost every change he gets. It shouldn't be hard for Kim to improve significantly on his 2019-20 earnings number as it's set just above $1 million.
61Brandt Snedeker$896,750$2,000,000Snedeker has been on the PGA Tour since 2007 and through all the ups and downs, he's never failed to crack the $1 million mark in earnings … until this past season. Granted, it wasn't all his fault, the reduction in events played a large part, but his play contributed as well as Snedeker managed just one top-10 in 16 starts this past season. Snedeker will turn 40 during this upcoming season and while his game isn't likely to fall off a cliff, his upside does seem limited now. With that said, his price is so low for the upcoming season that it'll be hard to avoid him in salary cap formats.
62Shane 
Lowry
$781,326$2,000,000Lowry hit it big in 2019 when he won the Open Championship, but that wasn't the only thing he accomplished. He also scored a 3rd-place finish and a runner-up on his way to over $3.4 million in earnings. This past season however, there wasn't much to write home about as he only managed one top-10 in 13 starts. Lowry's cap number is so low entering this season however that it'll be hard to pass him up in salary cap formats.
63Lucas 
Glover
$728,355$2,000,000Glover had the best season of his career in 2018-19, posting 16 top-20s on his way to the Tour Championship. The early part of the season was a huge disappointment, with just one top-25 in his first 12 starts. He then reeled off four straight top-25s to get him inside the playoff cut line, but Glover ultimately ended with disappointment. The difference this past season was the putter and short game. If that improves, his ball striking is still good enough to be competitive every week.
64Tyler 
Duncan
$1,799,855$1,900,000Duncan's third season on the PGA Tour was highlighted by his first career victory at the RSM Classic in November of 2019, where he defeated Webb Simpson in a two-hole playoff at 19-under-par. He played solid upon the Tour's restart in June as well, making the cut in nine of 10 starts from the Charles Schwab Challenge through the BMW Championship, though he fell shy of advancing to East Lake at 40th in the FedEx Cup standings after tying for 48th at Olympia Fields CC. He's top-10 among his peers in FIR percentage and 52nd in SG: Approach, but his short game could use improvement ahead of 2021.
65Russell Henley$1,195,378$1,800,000Henley took a big step in ball striking last season, ranking top-10 in both SG: Approach and proximity to the hole. He was also top-15 on Tour in scrambling. While Henley isn't the longest hitter, he has always been pretty accurate throughout his career. If his putter ever comes around to where it was at the beginning of his career, we could see a breakout season for the former Georgia Bulldog.
66Jason 
Kokrak
$1,494,604$1,750,000Kokrak posted career-high numbers during the 2018-2019 season, his eighth on the PGA Tour and heading into this past season it was fair to wonder if he would use it as a stepping stone to bigger and better things. Kokrak failed to capitalize on his career year, however, as he fell back into his normal routine of earning between $1 and $2 million. Since Kokrak has spent most of his time in that range, it doesn't make sense to take him in a salary cap format this season as he'll likely end up in the same spot again next season.
67Charles Howell III$1,371,807$1,750,000Howell's resume is quite amazing. Since 2001, Howell has never failed to crack $1 million in earnings. His upside has lacked some punch at times, but he's always been hanging around, gobbling up paychecks and making one heck of a living. Although he posted an unexpected win during the 2018-2019 season, his days of winning and making big bucks are probably long gone. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this season, even at his reduced price for the upcoming season.
68Will 
Gordon - N
$28,847$1,750,000Gordon earned his card for the upcoming season by accumulating enough FedEx points in just a handful of starts under the non-member category, but after he gained that status, his play fell off dramatically. Gordon looks to be the real deal, but his struggles immediately after gaining status are a little concerning. Gordon will also have to navigate being a rookie on the PGA Tour this season, which can be difficult with so many eyes on you. With that in mind, look for Gordon to have a productive, yet unspectacular season.
69Henrik Norlander$1,175,431$1,700,000The Swede reached a career-best 136th in the Official World Golf Ranking thanks to five straight finishes of T41 or better from the Travelers Championship through the 3M Open, but his 2019-20 season ended with a missed cut at the Northern Trust as he missed out on the BMW Championship by just six spots in the FedEx Cup standings. Norlander ranked top-15 on Tour in both driving accuracy and GIR percentage while also averaging an impressive 34 feet to the hole in proximity on his approaches. He could be a sleeper candidate moving forward, especially if he can figure out his scrambling.
70Mark Hubbard$1,840,473$1,650,000In his fourth full season on the PGA Tour, Hubbard finally broke through with a trio of top-10s including runner-up honors at the Houston Open last October. He would comfortably advance through leg one of the FedEx Cup Playoffs and into the BMW Championship, ultimately ending his season occupying the No. 44 spot in the standings. Hubbard missed only four cuts in 24 starts, while ranking 31st in SG: Putting, 44th in scoring average, 56th in scrambling and ninth in total birdies.
71Nick 
Taylor
$1,897,539$1,600,000Taylor has established himself as a reliable PGA Tour player, qualifying for the playoffs in each of the last four seasons. He's a well-balanced player who doesn't have any major weaknesses in his game but also lacks an elite strength. After a convincing win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Taylor's next best finish thereafter was a T35 result. Nevertheless, the win will get him in many events next year and plenty of opportunities for a big payday.
72Carlos 
Ortiz
$1,631,474$1,600,000Ortiz has had an interesting career that saw him win three times in a single season on the Korn Ferry Tour back in 2014, but also seen him bounce back-and-forth between both Tour's. He has good length with the driver and doesn't have any real weaknesses in his game. He had his best results in the fall portion of the schedule last season and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him finally get his first win next year.
73Max 
Homa
$1,453,056$1,600,000Homa picked up his first win in the 2018-19 campaign and while he didn't win this past season, it was statistically a better performance. Homa finished 40 spots better in SG: Total and had four more top-25s. Homa is fairly solid through the bag, but one big area for improvement would be short game, as he ranks 187th in SG: Around-the-green.
74Alex 
Noren
$1,274,003$1,600,000Noren had a better showing this past season after missing the playoffs in the 2018-19 campaign. The Swede played his best golf down the stretch, going T3-T9-T22-T8 before being elimiated at the BMW Championship. Noren ranked 40th in SG: Total and 27th in scoring average last season. It would not be surprising if his good finish fed into a fast start to the 2020-21 campaign.
75Robby Shelton$1,232,306$1,600,000Shelton barely made half his cuts, 13 of 24, yet had some key results that vaulted him into a second playoff event. He tied for third in the 3M Open late in the season, then for 13th at the Northern Trust. He's only 25, so there can be some upside.
76Denny McCarthy$1,178,557$1,600,000Amazingly, McCarthy led the Tour in SG: Putting for a second consecutive season but his tee-to-green game leaves much to be desired. He's best viewed as a cut maker who struggles in stronger-field events, but will occasionally contend when he's able to have a good week with his long-game. A safe bet to make the FedEx Cup Playoffs and a contender to win a weaker field event.
77Harold Varner III$1,060,152$1,600,000Varner had statistically his best season to date, despite him only finishing 80th in FedEx Cup points. The East Carolina product ranked 25th in SG: Total thanks to awesome ball striking that saw him finish top-15 in SG: Tee-to-green and GIR percentage. 153rd in SG: Putting is his biggest area for improvement.
78Bud 
Cauley
$1,042,100$1,600,000Cauley looked like a future star after two top-5 finishes in 2011 at age 21, but his results have failed to live up to the talent. He does a good job of making cuts, but he's not very long or a great putter which makes it difficult for him to contend often and get that breakthrough victory. He's a good DFS option on courses that force layups off-the-tee and it would be a shock to see Cauley miss the FedEx Cup Playoffs next season.
79Scott 
Piercy
$809,871$1,600,000Other than a T6-T18-T17 stretch in February, the 2019-20 season was a pretty big disappointment for Piercy. He was fortunate to sneak into the playoffs and did not inspire any with his play after the COVID break. Piercy was outside the top-170 in GIR percentage, which is pretty unlike his normally solid ball striking. At 41, a decline is possible, but expect a much better season in 2020-21.
80Kevin Streelman$2,520,845$1,500,000Streelman is a frustrating player because it's hard to know what you are going to get. Last season he posted three finishes inside the top-four, but also missed 10 cuts. He ranked 114th in SG: Putting and 49th in SG: Tee-to-green last season. More consistency out of the 41-year-old and he might warrant some interest.
81Phil Mickelson$1,493,908$1,500,000Mickelson still has game, but he has no staying power. He flashed his upside a few times this past season, but he was rarely able to hold on even when off to a good start. Now eligible for the Champions Tour, Mickelson is likely to split time between the two tours when convenient, although he'll likely try to hold onto the PGA Tour for as long as possible. With that said, his upside is all but gone, making him a poor choice in salary cap formats this season.
82Talor 
Gooch
$1,398,171$1,500,000Year 3 on the PGA Tour was Gooch's best last season, making 17-of-23 cuts and notching nine top-25 finishes. He ended up top-55 in both SG: Total and scoring average. The 28-year-old solid finish last season does provide some reason for optimism going into Year 4.
83J.T. 
Poston
$1,282,929$1,500,000Poston picked up his first win back at the Wyndham Championship in 2019. This past season was up and down overall, but did feature six top-25s. His putting was very strong, but poor iron play led to a lot of that inconsistency. The 27-year-old was a lot better in that department in the 2018-19 season, so I think we could have a slightly better campaign in 2020-21.
84Xinjun 
Zhang
$1,232,376$1,500,000Zhang had a terrific season, with seven top-25s, three of which doubled as top-10s. But he still missed almost half his cuts and couldn't quite finish in the top 70 in points to get to the second playoff event. He's 33, so it's not as if arrow will surely point up, but he could see a little bump this season.
85Pat 
Perez
$1,010,905$1,500,000Perez withdrew from his last two events to close the season with foot and ankle injuries, but it's unknown if those are anything serious. Both of his top-10s last season came in the fall portion of the schedule and Perez is in the latter stages of his career. It's hard to expect him to win again but expect a handful of top-10s, leading to a respectable season.
86Ryan 
Moore
$957,540$1,500,000Moore only played in 16 events last season and it was the first time he's ever finished outside the top-100 in FedEx Cup standings. Moore's ball striking was still pretty solid last season and he ended up 50th in SG: Total, so with a few more starts and at only 37 years of age, I think he can turn in around in 2020-21.
87Keith 
Mitchell
$886,979$1,500,000Mitchell had a break out 2019 season, but he failed to do much of anything this past season to back that up. Now the question is, was this past season simply a hangover from picking up his first win the year prior and having no pressure to retain his card? Considering Mitchell has two solid seasons under his belt vs. one poor season, a bounce-back would seem to be in order this year. At his current number, he deserves a lot of consideration in salary cap formats this season.
88Emiliano Grillo$849,538$1,500,000Grillo has now made the playoffs in all five seasons since he has been out on Tour. The 2019-20 season marked his lowest finish in the FedEx Cup standings, however, at 93. Grillo had a couple close calls with a pair of T3s, but ultimately 10 missed cuts was just too much to overcome. Grillo is still an excellent ball striker, ranking top 10 in both GIR percentage and proximity to the hole last season, which is a big reason why I see him having a bounce back year in 2020-21. He quite honestly would have to try hard to have as bad of a putting season as he had this past year.
89Matt 
Wallace
$800,993$1,500,000Wallace's first season as a PGA Tour member was a disappointing one for sure. He showed flashes on the European Tour through the prior two years, but in the 2019-20 PGA Tour season he only had one top-10. Wallace was top-15 in SG: Around, but below average in just about every other area. The fact that he sat outside the top 190 in both FIR percentage and GIR percentage was probably the most concerning.
90Sergio 
Garcia
$658,935$1,500,000Garcia missed the playoffs for the second time in three years in 2019-20. His lone top-10 was a T5 at the RBC Heritage. His ball striking still remains one of the best in the world at sixth in SG: Tee-to-green, but ranking outside the top-200 in SG: Putting was just too much to overcome. It's hard to see where Garcia's career is going post-40.
91Andrew Putnam$459,640$1,500,000After a terrible rookie season on the PGA Tour, Putnam posted two very solid seasons prior to this past season, but the 2019-20 season was not kind to Putnam. Putnam made the cut in just seven of 16 starts and scored just one top-10. The only logical explanation for Putnam is that he struggled with the pandemic more than others around him. As such, he should bounce back this season, and at his current cap number, he figures to be an excellent value.
92C.T. Pan$329,997$1,500,000There's no other way to put this — Pan is coming off a terrible 2019-20 season. He made the cut in just nine of 19 starts and scored only one top-25. Fortunately for Pan, he was already exempt through the upcoming season because of a win he picked up the previous season. With that in mind, at this price and with full status, he's a must have for this season as prior to this past season, Pan's average earnings were more than $1.7 million.
93Tom 
Hoge
$1,857,073$1,450,000Immediately upon retaining his PGA Tour card via the KFT Finals last summer, Hoge kickstarted his 2019-20 campaign by earning solo runner-up honors at the Greenbrier in September. He then enjoyed a streak of four top-25s from the Sony Open through the Waste Management Phoenix Open. This stretch also included top-6s at the American Express and Farmers Insurance Open. Hoge ultimately advanced to the BMW Championship for the first time in his career at 31-years old, but he missed the cut in six of his last 11 starts to end the season 50th in the FedEx Cup standings.
94Mackenzie Hughes$2,079,951$1,400,000Hughes had an up and down season last year, recording three finishes inside the top-six, but also missing double digit cuts. The Canadian really struggled ball-striking wise, but his short game was on point finishing top-20 in both SG: Around and SG: Putting. Hughes just hasn't been a good ball striker in his whole career on Tour, which makes him harder to trust. Some high finishes were enough to get him into the Tour Championship, which in turn will get him into virtually all the big events next season.
95Brian Harman$1,482,583$1,400,000Harman quietly put together another solid season, which included seven top-25s and ranking 33rd in SG: Total. His short game led the way, as he was 16th in SG: Around and eighth in scrambling. Harman is a pretty safe option, finishing inside the top 100 in the FedEx Cup standings each of the last nine seasons.
96Vaughn Taylor$1,148,779$1,400,000Taylor was one of two players who qualified for the FedEx Cup Playoffs but didn't tee it up at The Northern Trust due to injury. Coming off one of his best seasons on Tour, Taylor was unable to duplicate his previous success as both his top-10s came in the fall portion of the schedule and he missed the cut in five-of-six events since the Tour re-started play. At 44, Taylor's driving distance dropped outside the top 200 and he'll need to be stellar with his short-game to seriously contend on Tour.
97Cameron Tringale$911,172$1,400,000Tringale quietly had a steady season with only four missed cuts in 18 events but lacked high finishes to fall short of the $1 million earnings mark. Tringale improved his driving distance from a season ago and also ranked near the top of the Tour in SG: Approach. Although he's never won on Tour before, don't overlook Tringale as a sleeper and cheap option in season-long contests. He's trending in the right direction and could be a guy to breakthrough with his first win in his mid-30s.
98Michael Thompson$1,577,832$1,300,000Thompson broke through with an emotional win at the 3M Open for his second win on Tour and his first since 2013. He led the field in putting that week which is the strength of his game, but lost over .25 strokes to the field from tee-to-green for the season. He may be overrated a bit as a result, although he will be qualified to play in more prestigious events in 2020-21 that he's missed out on over recent years.
99Sepp 
Straka
$1,140,441$1,300,000Straka's second season on Tour went pretty similarly to his first one, with a handful of top-25 results and a missed cut at the Northern Trust to end it. It's a little troubling to see that Straka missed more cuts in the same amount of starts this year and that his tee-to-green play dipped. It's not out of the question to see him be a surprise winner in this season, and he's a safe bet to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
100Patrick Rodgers$1,015,849$1,300,000Rodgers has had an up-and-down PGA Tour career, one that has seen him look like a star in the making at times and one that makes you wonder if he will live up to the potential. Rodgers has that rare gift of exceptional length off-the-tee and feel on the greens, but his iron play has held him back as he's failed to gain positive strokes on the field in approach play in any of his six seasons on Tour. He's a reliable cut maker at this point, but we don't see him winning next season.
101Tom 
Lewis
$895,241$1,300,000Lewis broke through to win the Korn Ferry Tour Championship in 2019 to gain status on the PGA Tour and the young Englishman and Tour rookie had a surprising runner-up finish at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational against a star-studded field. There's a lot of potential with Lewis, although he may not play as many events as others due to making some starts in overseas.
102Sam 
Burns
$757,500$1,300,000Burns' second season on Tour came with mediocre results: 103rd in FedEx Cup points, 11-out-of-19 cuts made and three top-20 finishes. At only 24, it's likely we have yet to see the best of Burns, who won the Jack Nicklaus Award at the best collegiate golfer in 2017. Burns ranked inside the top 10 in driving distance and top-20 in SG: Off-the-tee last season, but has been held back by his chipping game where he's failed to crack the top 175 in either year on Tour. An improvement there could pay off big in 2020-21.
103Luke 
List
$731,507$1,300,000List went 12-for-22 last season with a best finish of T10 at the Memorial Tournament. It was enough to sneak into the playoffs, but a MC in Boston ended his season quickly. List has the power to attack most courses, but his putting really let him down this past season. He ranked 22nd in SG: Tee-to-green, but 182nd in SG: Putting for the year. That ball striking makes his upside a little higher. List had surpassed $1.3 million each of the prior three seasons, so I'd expect a total earnings number at the end of the 2020-21 campaign to be closer to that than it was this past season.
104Adam 
Schenk
$678,928$1,300,000Schenk qualified for the FedEx Cup Playoffs for a second consecutive season, but once again was unable to make enough headway to make the top 70 into the BMW Championship. He was a workhorse, playing 24 events in the shortened season, but was unable to crack the top 10 in a single event despite 15 made cuts. His game does appear to be trending in the right direction, with six straight made cuts. His driving accuracy improved to help him make gains in SG: Off-the-tee, where he went from 91st last season to 47th.
105Erik van Rooyen - N$171,345$1,250,000Van Rooyen grabbed some attention in 2019 when he scored a top-10 at the PGA Championship and a top-20 at the Open Championship and when he earned a T3 at the WGC Mexico Championship early this past season, expectations began to rise. That was the high-point of his season, however, as he failed to find any traction the rest of the way. van Rooyen will turn 31 this season, which places him in the prime of his career, but he's only recently found his footing on the PGA Tour and it might take a little more time to show everything he has. This upcoming season will also be his first full season on the PGA Tour and it's always best to temper expectations for foreign players in their first year in the states full time.
106Danny 
Lee
$2,043,764$1,200,000Lee has now gone each of the last six seasons earning at least $1.2 million. His best finish last season was a runner-up at the CJ Cup. That high finish was important because overall he statistically struggled, ranking 131st in SG: Total. The biggest area for concern has to be his short game, which ranks 194th on Tour last season.
107Harry 
Higgs
$1,251,570$1,200,000After graduating from the Korn Ferry Tour, Higgs made 16-of-25 cuts and qualified for the BMW Championship as a Tour rookie. His best result came at the Bermuda Championship — an alternate field event where he finished runner-up. Higgs has a nice combination of good length and accuracy off-the-tee, but he finished outside the top 150 in SG: Approach. He'll need to improve his iron play in order to contend for titles more often. A reasonable season-long option with moderate upside.
108Matt 
Jones
$996,369$1,200,000Jones' best result last season didn't come on the PGA Tour but at the Emirates Australian Open, where he won in his home country for the second time. He did a great job of making over twice as many cuts as he missed, but he dropped outside of the top 175 in SG: Approach which leaves much to be desired. He's a safe bet to make the playoffs, but he's past his prime and unlikely to have multiple top-5 results.
109Cameron Davis$857,225$1,125,000Davis came tantalizingly close to cracking the top-70; instead, he finished 84th — still his best season on Tour. He had two top-10s and four top-25s, but he made only 11 of 20 cuts. That's where he should improve as he gets more comfortable on Tour.
110Keegan Bradley$824,471$1,100,000Some other players have been able to adjust from the anchoring ban, but Bradley still is not one of them. He was once again around 200th in SG: Putting this past season. Bradley's ball striking was solid, but not as good as prior years, which is the main reason he didn't finish better than T32 after the restart. 2020-21 is anyone's best guess for the 34-year-old
111Scott Stallings$664,849$1,100,000Stallings seemed to find hints of his old form during the Tour's hiatus as he returned with two top-10 results since the re-start with only missed one cut. Now in his mid-30s, he isn't as dominant with his driver as he used to be, but he's been solid with his approach play. Look for Stallings to continue his momentum into the 2020-21 season as a reliable cut maker who may find himself in contention to get back into the winner's circle.
112Brice 
Garnett
$626,179$1,100,000Garnett does have one PGA Tour victory to his name in an opposite-field event, but he's failed to do much over the last couple of seasons to expect a much better season in 2020-21. At 36, Garnett seems to be past his prime and is best suited to attack events that don't play particularly long and have below-average fields. With more missed cuts than made ones this year, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him on the borderline of making the playoffs and possibly have to head to the Korn Ferry Tour Finals next August.
113Danny 
Willett
$621,028$1,100,000Willett's up-and-down career continued in the 2019-20 season as he failed to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs as he recorded just one top-15 finish and missed the cut in six-of-nine full field events. He did show signs of life on the European Tour, however, winning the BMW PGA Championship and finishing fifth in the DP World Tour Championship late last year. Despite improving his putting after a poor 2018-19 campaign, Willett dropped from 49th in SG: Tee-to-green to 174th.
114Kyle 
Stanley
$490,359$1,100,000After making more than $3 million in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns, Stanley has struggled each of the last two seasons. In 2019-20 he made just eight cuts in 20 tries, with only one top-10 finish. Despite those numbers, Stanley still ranked top-5 in both driving accuracy and GIR percentage. He just really struggled both around and on the greens. The potential is there, but he needs to find more consistency through the bag.
115Chesson Hadley$485,193$1,100,000Hadley missed the playoffs last season with a best finish of only 17th. He also missed seven cuts in his 19 starts. Hadley actually was 10th on Tour in birdie average, but his short game really let him last season and led to a lot of bogeys. His ball striking is good enough to be competitive if he can improve that scrambling percentage.
116Aaron 
Wise
$355,972$1,100,000Wise found the winners circle and posted 10 top-25s in his rookie season back in 2017-18, but things were not as easy this season. The Oregon product missed six cuts in 18 starts and only had two top-25s. Wise did finish the season fourth in GIR percentage, but was way down at 182nd in SG: Putting. At 24, there is still hope he can turn things around soon.
117Branden Grace$354,443$1,100,000A participant in the FedEx Cup Playoffs in each of the last four seasons, Grace had a miserable 2019-20 campaign with a best result of T9 and 11 missed cuts in 16 events. His OWGR is inflated by a win at the South African Open — a European Tour event with a weak field that moved his ranking up from 119th to 73rd at the time. On a positive note, Grace ranked inside the top 25 in SG: Approach for the season and if he can improve his putting he should see more consistent results.
118Troy 
Merritt
$1,037,971$1,000,000Merritt nearly notched his third career PGA Tour win at the Barracuda Championship, but ultimately had to settle for a runner-up. He ended up finishing 74th in the FedEx Cup standings. Merritt's ball striking still needs work, as he was way down in 184th in SG: Tee-to-green, but ended up 25th in SG: Putting. There isn't a whole lot of upside with Merritt.
119Brian 
Stuard
$1,002,095$1,000,000Stuard is never going to be an exciting fantasy option, but he is able to get the most out of his game. One of the shortest hitters on Tour, he's able to make up for it with solid play on and around the greens. For someone of his skill level, he does a good job making cuts – 36-out-of-54 over the last two seasons (67 percent rate). He can be an occasional sleeper top-10 pick on shorter courses.
120Charley Hoffman$932,875$1,000,000Hoffman has now finished 79th, 78th and 77th in the final FedEx Cup standings the last three seasons. He ended up top-20 in birdie average last season, but was outside the top 115 in scoring average. Two big areas for Hoffman to improve would be his short game and driving accuracy, especially considering his length at age 43. His best years are more than likely behind him.
121Matthew NeSmith$783,232$1,000,000NeSmith was the No. 5 rookie on Tour last season. He was faring well until the break from play in March and perhaps with some more consistency, NeSmith can show what he's capable of. Look for NeSmith to find a little more consistency this season and perhaps a couple top-10s.
122Sam 
Ryder
$690,246$1,000,000Inconsistency was the story of Ryder's season as he had more missed cuts than made ones. His best finish came at the Puerto Rico Open – an alternate event in which he finished tied for third. Ryder does seem to do a good job of taking advantage of some of the weaker field events and finding a few top-10s every year to keep his card, but he doesn't do anything particularly great to envision a breakout season in 2020-21.
123Rafa 
Cabrera Bello
$646,577$1,000,000After making the playoffs each of his first three seasons as a full-time member, the 2019-20 campaign was quite the disappointment for the man from Spain. He only had three top-25s and none in his final eight starts. Cabrera Bello ranked outside the top 100 in every strokes gained category, so all parts of his game need work.
124Jhonattan Vegas$527,009$1,000,000Vegas had a pretty disappointing end to his season, which featured four straight missed cuts to close things out. He drove the ball very well, ranking fifth in SG: Off-the-tee, but outside the top 140 on Tour in approaching the green, around the greens, and putting. Vegas had finished in the top 100 in the FedEx Cup standings each of the last four years prior to this season.
125Russell 
Knox
$519,028$1,000,000Knox barely missed out on the FedEx Cup Playoffs after finishing T72 at the Wyndham Championship — the first time he's failed to qualify for the postseason since 2013. Knox hasn't finished inside the top 10 on either the PGA or European Tour since June 2019 and his Official World Golf Ranking has dipped all the way to 199 as a result. An alarming trend is that it's the fourth straight year that Knox has finished worse in SG: Off-the-tee.
126Kevin 
Tway
$256,320$1,000,000Entering this past season, it looked like Tway was on the right path as he'd posted three consecutive seasons in the top 100 on the FedEx Cup points list, but all of that momentum came to halt this past season. Tway missed the cut in 12 of his 19 starts and failed to card even a single top-25. That's the bad news, but the good news is, his cap number is so low that he's impossible to pass on in a salary cap format. As such, it would be wise to find space for Tway on your salary cap team this season.
127Andrew Landry$1,510,275$950,000Landry notched his second win in three years at the American Express in January. Unfortunately, it didn't amount to much else as he had just one other top-25 in 22 starts. At 167th in SG: Total and 131st in scoring average last season, there is not a whole lot to feel confident in going to the 2020-21 season.
128Wyndham Clark$814,737$950,000Clark has shown to be an excellent putter in his young career, but his ball striking has really struggled. Last season he ranked 20th in SG: Putting, but 193rd in SG: Tee-to-green. It's really the reason he went just 10-for-23 in made cuts last season. Until he shows more consistent ball striking, Clark will be hard to trust in all formats.
129Rory Sabbatini$629,885$950,000The 2018-19 campaign was a renaissance of sorts for Sabbatini who went 22-for-26 with six top-10s and 11 top-25s. This past season was a different story, as the veteran did not finish better than a T14. Sabbatini just didn't hit the ball as well in 2019-20, ranking 144th in SG: Approach and 148th in GIR percentage. That needs to improve if he is to be competitive at 44 years of age.
130Nate 
Lashley
$1,035,222$900,000Lashley had a pretty good start to last season, but after a T3 at the WMPO, he made just two cuts in his last 10 starts. The 2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic winner back finished outside the top 150 this past season in both SG: Total and scoring average. Lashley doesn't have much upside.
131Scott 
Brown
$963,412$900,000A runner-up finish to Adam Scott at Riviera CC dramatically improved Brown's Official World Golf Ranking, but outside of that result his season left much to be desired. His accuracy off-the-tee is his biggest asset, but he hasn't gained strokes on the field with his approach play since the 2014-15 season. Although he may post an occasional top-10 result, the upside with Brown is minimal.
132Ryan 
Armour
$850,571$900,000After back-to-back top-10s shortly into the Tour's restart of play, Armour missed the cut in four of his final five events to slow the momentum. Armour picked up his first win three years ago at 41-years-old, but his lack of distance off-the-tee gives him little margin for error in the other aspects of his game. Because he doesn't excel at any parts of his game, it's usually best to look at other players with more upside.
133Kyoung-Hoon Lee$781,808$900,000The South Korean has qualified for the FedEx Cup Playoffs the last two seasons but has been unable to make the BMW Championship either year. Lee tends to be fairly average in all aspects of his game, but he struggles to make enough birdies to post many top-10s. Probably a player to avoid due to lack of much upside.
134Graeme McDowell$751,082$900,000After missing only two cuts in 2018-19, last season was a bit more of a struggled as McDowell went 9-for-16 with just one top-10. He also missed the cut in four of his last five starts. McDowell ranked 185th in SG: Total last season. There's just no upside here to warrant a selection.
135Charl Schwartzel$677,980$900,000Coming back from a wrist injury, the 35-year-old played in only 12 events, missing seven cuts. But he two top-5s, showing the potential to return to his former ways is possible, at least on occasion. Schwartzel is not that far removed from a couple $2 million seasons, and even though he's on the backside of his career, he still has some upside left.
136Bronson Burgoon$589,539$900,000Despite drastically improving his putting last season, Burgoon was only able to make nine cuts and his two best results came in events with very weak fields compared to the PGA Tour standard. Burgoon's one of those players who doesn't stand out statistically in any category and really struggles in events with above-average fields. If you take him in season-long contests, you're hoping he can maximize his results in the smaller tournaments.
137J.B. 
Holmes
$440,524$900,000Holmes had another good start to the campaign in January, but after finishing T51 in his defense of the Genesis Invitational, we saw Holmes play just one more round the rest of the season at the Workday Charity Open before having to withdraw due to an injured shoulder. Holmes has battled injuries throughout his career, which makes drafting him a scary proposition.
138Jason Dufner$306,781$900,000It appears the best days are behind the 43-year-old Dufner, as his best finish this season came at The Honda Classic where he finished T27. Despite it being a really bad year on the greens, he had one of his best years lately with his iron play. If he can show some signs of life with his putter, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him record multiple top-10 finishes next year but it's probably a stretch to expect him to win again.
139Kiradech Aphibarnrat$293,119$900,000It's hard to take much from what Aphibarnrat showed us this past season considering he only made seven starts. He did only end up making the cut in two of those events with a best finish of T8. Aphibarnrat plays all over the world, so his commitment level to the PGA Tour in 2020-21 is not all that clear.
140Jim 
Furyk
$224,450$900,000At age 50, Furyk led the Tour last season in both driving accuracy and GIR percentage. Unfortunately, both his scrambling and putting numbers were very uncharacteristic. He only made 13 starts this past season, but in 2018-19 he tallied more than $2.5 million. It all depend on how committed Furyk is to the PGA Tour now that he is PGA Tour Champions eligible.
141Zach 
Johnson
$777,727$850,000It took a clutch top-10 performance at the regular season finale for Johnson to even join the FedEx Cup Playoffs, but he was bounced after the first leg at 105th in the standings following a T49 at the Northern Trust. Johnson posted just one top-10 result for a second straight season, and the 44-year-old ended his 2019-20 campaign outside of the top 100 in SG: Tee-to-Green. The veteran was top-20 in putting from inside 10 feet and putting from 10-15 feet, however.
142Wesley 
Bryan
$178,877$825,000Bryan, whose 2018-19 campaign was cut short due to shoulder surgery following the RSM Classic that fall, made his return to the PGA Tour at the 2020 RBC Heritage in June where he made the cut before going on to place T31 or better in three consecutive events from the Travelers Championship through the Wyndham Championship. He averaged $44,719 in official earnings per event throughout his four starts this summer, and he has 17 chances remaining on a Major Medical Extension to accrue 281.699 FedEx Cup points.
143Chase Seiffert$539,756$800,000Seiffert took a step in the right direction as he posted his best result on Tour — a fourth-place finish at the Workday Charity Open. He's a late bloomer who does a good job of making cuts for someone of his skill level. Expect him to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs for the first time next season.
144Nick 
Watney
$534,797$800,000Watney is coming off a disappointing season that saw him fail to qualify for the playoffs. He ranked outside the top 175 in SG: Off-the-tee which was the big issue with his game, although he didn't lose any length. He'll need to commit to hitting his driver more accurately if he wants to see improved results this season. With his OWGR falling outside the top 250, it appears his best days are behind him.
145J.J. 
Spaun
$232,472$800,000Spaun played in 20 events last season, but only made the cut in half of them with a best finish of T30. He lost strokes in all areas and ended up 195th in scoring average. Spaun had racked up at least $1.1 million in each of the previous three seasons, so at this point it's hard to see which way 2020-21 is going to go for the San Diego State product.
146Joseph Bramlett$495,690$790,000Bramlett didn't advance to the FedEx Cup Playoffs after earning his PGA Tour card back for the first time since 2011, but he did notch a top-10 at the Puerto Rico Open to go along with three additional top-25s. Eight missed cuts in 18 starts proved costly, though he ranked 25th in GIR percentage and 28th in proximity from the fairway. Bramlett also tallied back-to-back top-3s at the Korn Ferry Tour's Korn Ferry Challenge and King & Bear Classic in June.
147Fabian Gomez$564,722$775,000Gomez was on the wrong side of the top 125 cutoff for the FedEx Cup Playoffs as he ended the 2019-20 season 126th in the standings, despite placing solo-seventh at the Bermuda Championship and tied for third at the Barracuda Championship in early August. Nonetheless, it was Gomez's best season on Tour since 2016 when he won the Sony Open in Hawaii. Gomez finished top-30 among his peers in driving accuracy and 36th in proximity.
148Henrik Stenson$155,111$750,000Stenson just didn't play enough on the PGA Tour last season to really give you any confidence in selecting him in 2020-21. It doesn't appear he has any motivation to contend for a FedEx Cup title again and will likely split time between tours. Stenson won the Hero World Challenge last December, but his best finish in an official PGA Tour event was T20 at the WGC-HSBC Champions.
149Bo 
Hoag
$621,518$725,000Hoag used a quartet of top-25s and a T9 at the Sony Open to ultimately qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs, but he ended the season 125th in the standings after a missed cut at the Northern Trust sent him packing. He mad 13 of 22 cuts as a rookie, and he even ranked top 30 on Tour in GIR percentage. Conversely, he's 161st or worse in SG: Tee-to-Green and birdie average, so a sophomore slump isn't out of the question in 2021.
150Brian 
Gay
$702,647$700,000Gay is coming off of his worst season in several years as he only made two-of-nine cuts since the Tour's re-start. Gay hasn't won on Tour since 2013 and at age 48, he's nearing the end of his PGA Tour career. The best case scenario is likely seeing him make a few top-10s in smaller events, but even that may be a stretch at this point.
151Patton 
Kizzire
$352,764$700,000After reaching a career-high Official World Golf Ranking of 51st back in 2018, Kizzire has fallen more than 225 spots after recording just one top-10 and 11 missed cuts in 19 events this season. He's dramatically improved his putting over the last two seasons, but he's struggled in the other aspects of his game as he ranked near the bottom of the Tour in SG: Tee-to-green in 2019-20. It's hard to envision a huge bounce-back season.
152Seamus Power$351,069$700,000Power got into only 11 tournaments last season, playing out of the 126-150 category. He made seven cuts with two top-25s. He should get more starts in a full season, and get near his previous average of about $700k in earnings.
153Kristoffer Ventura$278,309$700,000Ventura has a nice combination of above-average length off-the-tee and great putting but that only translated to a best finish of T18 last year. He also struggled to get into a lot of Tour events late in the year, with four starts on each the PGA and Korn Ferry Tour's since the re-start of play. Ventura is young and did win twice on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019, but he's probably still a couple of years away from being relevant on the PGA Tour.
154Roger 
Sloan
$253,597$700,000Zero top-10s and seven made cuts in 20 events sums up Sloan's 2019-20 season — disappointing. His game doesn't give you many reasons to get excited as he's a short hitter, a below average iron player and great on or around the greens. He could surprise and have a high finish at an alternate field event, but expecting much more than that is being optimistic.
155Stewart 
Cink
$490,620$675,000Falling outside of the top 300 in the Official World Golf Ranking after a season-ending missed cut at the Wyndham Championship, Cink limited his schedule to just 14 events throughout the 2019-20 campaign after nursing a back injury earlier last year. He only missed three cuts, but failed to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs due to a lack of high finishes as he placed top-25 on two occasions. The 47-year-old ranked 74th in GIR percentage, but just 124th in SG: Tee-to-Green.
156Beau 
Hossler
$658,088$650,000Hossler is only 25, but he seems to have plateaued — and not in a good place. After making about $2.5 million in 2017-18, he earned about $650,000 the past two seasons. Last season, he made 13 of 22 cuts with five top-25s and one top-10. Expect more of the same
157Chris 
Kirk
$162,468$640,000Kirk spent a good chunk of the 2019 calendar year away from PGA Tour competition for personal reasons, and he was a bit rusty upon his eventual return as he missed five straight cuts from the RSM Classic through the Honda Classic. Then all of a sudden he won the Korn Ferry Tour's King & Bear Classic in June, completely shifting the mood as he followed the victory with a top-25 performance at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Kirk ultimately ranked 30th in driving accuracy and GIR percentage, but he struggled on the greens.
158Zac 
Blair
$745,273$600,000As one of the shortest hitters, barely average 280 off the tee, it's a marvel Blair does as well as he does. He had four top-25s, one of which was a top-5 at the Safeway, but his upside will always be limited by his length. He made 12 of 22 cuts last season.
159Peter 
Malnati
$561,273$600,000Malnati is a short hitter and very good putter, which means he always has a puncher's chance on shorter tracks. He had four top-25s last season but no top-10s, and missed more than half his cuts. Malnati has eclipsed $1 million just once in six seasons on the PGA Tour and doesn't seem to have much upside.
160Austin 
Cook
$386,353$600,000After a stellar 2017-18 season, Cook was looking like one of the top up-and-coming players on Tour, but since he's been a player who's only made about half of his cuts and is rarely near the top of the leaderboards. When Cook was at his best he relied on a steady all-around game, but his iron play struggled mightily this past season. He'll need to find his old form if he wants to retain his PGA Tour card next season.
161Brandon Hagy$341,322$600,000Although Hagy sits outside the top 300 in the OWGR, his talent is at a much higher level. He's one of the longest hitters on tour with a solid short game to compliment. His iron play has been the aspect of his game that's held him back. He can be viewed as a cheap option with much more option with the other golfers in his range.
162Chris 
Stroud
$249,013$600,000Stroud didn't do fantasy owners any help last season as he failed to record a top-10 finish and missed twice as many cuts as he made. It's the second time in the last three season that he's failed to qualify for the playoffs and he's on a downward trajectory that is likely to see him on the Korn Ferry Tour sooner rather than later.
163Matt 
Every
$202,546$600,000Things didn't get any better in the 2019-20 season for Every as he made the cut in only six-of-19 events and didn't perform well in any of the strokes-gained categories. A two-time winner on Tour, it's hard to see Every finding the winner's circle again and his inconsistent play makes him an unreliable DFS option. He can make birdies in bunches when he's on, though.
164Doug 
Ghim
$187,442$600,000Ghim has a stellar amateur career but has failed to live up to expectations and translate that success at the professional level. In his first full season with status, Ghim only made 5 of 11 cuts and failed to post a top-10 result. Ghim also didn't light up the Korn Ferry Tour in his one season with just three top-10 results in one season. He is only 24-years-old so there's plenty of time for improvement, but he's not much more than a dart throw at this point.
165Hank 
Lebioda
$436,840$550,000Lebioda took a step back in his second season on Tour, which isn't out of the norm. From the 126-150 category, he missed more cuts than he made but a reversal if he can straighten out his irons. He made about one-third of his cash by finishing third in the oppo Bermuda Championship.
166Michael 
Gligic
$238,411$525,000Gligic failed to secure a top-20 result while also missing the cut in 10 of 18 events throughout his rookie season, but he managed to finish strong by stringing together finishes of T26-T25-T59 from the 3M Open through the Wyndham Championship. This was an especially promising development given he missed the cut at the Korn Ferry Tour's Korn Ferry Challenge and TPC San Antonio Challenge upon returning from the pandemic break. Gligic ultimately ranked 77th in SG: Off-the-Tee and 64th in proximity, showing signs of ball-striking ability.
167Mark Anderson$278,630$520,000The 34-year-old journeyman ranked 74th among his peers in SG: Approach and 54th in proximity throughout the 2019-20 season, but he fell to just 198th in birdie average and 168th in total driving en route to just one total top-25 finish across 16 events played. Anderson missed the cut in three of his last four starts to end his season at the Wyndham Championship, so he remains without a single FedEx Cup Playoffs appearance.
168Jim 
Herman
$1,390,275$500,000Herman parlayed an outlier of a win at the Wyndham to win the vast bulk of his money. He's been on the PGA Tour for nearly a decade and he has three wins on his resume, but he's also been incredibly inconsistent. It's not likely he'll find another win this season.
169Robert 
Streb
$415,258$500,000After a breakthrough season in 2014-15, Streb failed to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs for a third straight season and finds himself in a position where he has to play the weekly Korn Ferry Tour instead of the PGA Tour event on occasion. With more missed cuts than made cuts in each of the last three seasons, it's hard to envision a sudden resurgence in Streb's game this season.
170Dominic Bozzelli$272,865$500,000Bozzelli is a terrific putter but not much else. He missed 8 of 13 cuts, with one top-10 — and that's where he earned more than two-thirds of yearly total. He's been on the PGA Tour for four seasons and he's yet to top$900k in earnings. He'll fare better this season than last, but his upside is limited.
171Ben 
Martin
$270,879$500,000Martin came back from a lost injury season to make 13 starts with three top-25s. Playing only under past champions status will limit his opportunities, but he does have a decent track record on the PGA Tour when healthy. Martin earned more than $2.7 million in 2015, and though he's not likely to repeat that, he still has upside.
172Martin 
Laird
$232,786$500,000Laird was in the top-125 category last season but played in only 12 events — and never returned after the restart. It was not known why. He made seven cuts and had one top-25, a tie for sixth at the oppo Puerto Rico Open. Presumably, he will play more this season.
173Kevin Chappell$176,506$500,000Chappell has 20 events left on a major medical extension to accrue only 257 FedEx points — very doable, if healthy. He played only 13 events last season and made seven cuts, with one top-25. The key for Chappell is his health as when healthy, he's a top-50 player on the PGA Tour.
174Jimmy 
Walker
$243,370$475,000The 41-year-old missed more cuts than he made for the first time in a season since 2010 during his 2019-20 campaign, which included just two top-25s in 16 starts. Walker was especially off his game once the schedule resumed in June following the Tour's three-month hiatus, as he missed the cut in five of six starts from the Charles Schwab Challenge to the PGA Championship and broke 70 in just one of 14 tournament rounds during this span. He somehow ranked top-30 among his peers in SG: Approach, but hit only 62.20 percent of the greens in regulation and finished outside of the top 160 in SG: Tee-to-Green.
175Tim Wilkinson$307,772$465,000Wilkinson was one of the more accurate ball-strikers on Tour at age 42 this past season as he ranked 13th in both FIR percentage and proximity to the hole, but he recorded just a 3.61 birdie average due in part to his inability to launch it off the tee. His average driving distance was just shy of 285 yards, though he still managed to post top-25 performances at the American Express, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and Puerto Rico Open. He hasn't made the FedEx Cup Playoffs since 2014.
176Aaron Baddeley$286,504$450,000Baddeley will turn 40 this season. Last season was the first in almost two decades he didn't have a top-10 and he missed more cuts than he made. It's hard to imagine his game getting any better a this point, but he should fare slightly better than he did this past season, if for no other reason than he'll have more starts.
177Rob Oppenheim$454,470$435,000Oppenheim stepped into the spotlight during the regular-season finale when he fired a third-round 62 at the Wyndham Championship and played his first 54 holes in a collective 16-under-par, but a two-over 72 on Sunday caused him to drop into a tie for 15th as he ultimately missed out on the FedEx Cup Playoffs in the process. Oppenheim recorded a career-high five top-25s during the 2019-20 season, but he's yet to advance to the playoffs through three full seasons on Tour. This past season he ranked third among his peers in SG: Around-the-Green and struggled with the rest of his game.
178Will 
Zalatoris - R
$0$425,000The leader on the Korn Ferry Tour's points list has risen to a career-best 143rd in the Official World Golf Ranking thanks in part to nine top-10s in 15 starts on the KFT during the 2020 season, which included a win at the TPC Colorado Championship in early July. Zalatoris, a 24-year-old Wake Forest product, led the KFT in GIR percentage along the way while also ranking seventh in birdie average, fourth in total driving and first in total eagles. This combination indicates quite a bit of future fantasy upside if he's able to translate such quality ball-striking to the big-league venues.
179Sebastian Cappelen$371,482$415,000Cappelen began the 2020 calendar year on a positive note with a T6 at the American Express followed by another top-25 performance at the Famers Insurance Open, but the rookie would ultimately miss 11 total cuts in 18 starts as he lost steam down the stretch. The 30-year-old Dane failed to advance to the weekend in his last seven consecutive events to end the season and is just 379th in the Official World Golf Ranking. On a more positive note, Cappelen ranked top 50 on Tour in both driving distance and scrambling.
180Scott Harrington$951,211$400,000A rookie at age 39, Harrington played only four PGA Tour events before last season. He played 22 in 2019-20, making half the cuts. About two-thirds of his cash and points came from one event — runner-up at the Houston Open. We can't count on that happening again.
181D.J. 
Trahan
$345,471$400,000Trahan missed the cut in nine of his last 10 starts to end the 2019-20 season on a sour note, failing to ever maintain the positive momentum that accompanied a stretch of three consecutive top-30s from the Bermuda Championship through the Sony Open near the turn of the calendar year. Nonetheless, he was top-25 on Tour in total driving and 65th in GIR percentage, but really struggled with the flat stick. Trahan will turn 40 in December of 2020 and he hasn't surpassed the $1M mark in official earnings during a season since 2010.
182Peter 
Uihlein
$301,846$400,000Uihlein is now 30, and the promise of a few years ago clearly is not coming. His earnings have gone significantly downward the past three seasons. He might see a little boost this season only because last season was so bad.
183Wes 
Roach
$267,966$400,000Roach has had two top-10s each of the last two seasons. But the more recent pair were in opposite-field events. As such, he made significantly more cash two years ago. Roach has just five top-10s in 79 starts in his career though and his upside appears to be limited.
184Grayson Murray$244,150$400,000Since winning the Barbasol Championship in 2017, Murray has been unable to show much since with just two top-10 results since 2018. In 14 appearances in the 2019-20 season, Murray missed the cuts in nine of them with only two results inside the top 50. Distance with the driver is a big strength for Murray, but he's never shown much feel on the greens. He'll need to improve that part of his game to make cuts on a more consistent basis.
185Bill 
Haas
$130,293$400,000Haas an atrocious year on the greens losing over a stroke to the field in SG: Putting, leaving him with a best result of T27 in the alternate field Puerto Rico Open. Those putting numbers seem like an anomaly, so an improvement back to the Tour average could see Haas make cuts more regularly and find a couple top-10 results. However, he's failed to qualify for the playoffs in the last three seasons so it's difficult to be too optimistic about his future.
186Davis 
Riley - R
$39,600$400,000It didn't take much time for the three-time collegiate All-American from the University of Alabama to outgrow the Korn Ferry Tour as he notched a pair of wins at the Panama Championship and TPC San Antonio Championship in 2020. The 23-year-old tallied five top-10s and nine top-25s in 16 events to finish second on the KFT's points list at the conclusion of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. Riley also made a pair of cuts at the PGA Tour level during the fall series, placing 76th at the RSM Classic and T39 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. On the Korn Ferry Tour, he was second in birdie average and first in the all-around ranking.
187Kelly 
Kraft
$0$400,000Kraft underwent hip surgery after the playoffs ended in 2019 and hasn't competed since. It's still unknown when Kraft plans to tee things up again and he may be eyeing the beginning of 2021. He's never gained strokes on the field from tee-to-green in any of his four seasons on Tour, so he's an incredibly risky option in season-long contests.
188Jonas 
Blixt
$0$400,000Blixt didn't play in an event in the 2019-20 season due to an undisclosed injury and it's unclear when he will play again. He hasn't been relevant in Tour in quite some time with only one top-10 result in the previous two seasons. Those results on the injury concerns make him an unreliable season-long fantasy choice.
189Martin Kaymer$0$400,000Kaymer played only two PGA Tour events — the oppo Barracuda to prepare for the PGA Championship the following week. He missed both cuts. He's also out of the top-100 OWGR, so it's hard to tell how many events he'll be able to get into or will want to get into. As a former champ, he's eligible for the PGA but no other major.
190Cameron Percy$470,679$395,000Percy was bothered by a rib injury throughout summer 2020, which caused him to withdraw mid-tournament from both the Workday Charity Open in July and Wyndham Championship in August. The 46-year-old Aussie has never advanced to the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and that didn't change this year as he either missed the cut or withdrew in nine of 17 events, though he did collect a top-10 at the Safeway Open. Percy ranked 22nd on Tour in SG: Approach through 33 measured rounds, but his off-the-tee and short-game performance lagged well behind.
191David 
Hearn
$287,527$375,000Hearn, who finished 74th or better in the FedEx Cup standings from 2012 through 2016, has now missed the playoffs in four consecutive seasons after collecting just two top-25s in 19 starts while adding 11 missed cuts during his 2019-20 effort. The 41-year-old Canadian MC'd in nine of his final 10 events from the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am through the Wyndham Championship, ultimately finishing the season 156th in SG: Tee-to-Green and 171st in birdie average.
192Luke 
Donald
$232,875$350,000The 42-year-old wasn't very close to qualifying for the FedEx Cup Playoffs after a 2019-20 regular season that included just one top-25 result in 11 starts, accompanied by five missed cuts as well. Donald's severe lack of power off the tee is a huge issue at this stage of his career, as he ranks just 200th in both driving distance and SG: OTT. His short game is relatively sharp, but he's now battled through three consecutive disappointing seasons
193Michael Gellerman$125,992$330,000Gellerman was one of the five rookies to finish outside of the top 200 in the FedEx Cup standings at the end of the 2019-20 season, missing the cut in eight of 15 starts while failing to ever place better than a T38 at the Sony Open. The former Oklahoma Sooner was 182nd in SG: Off-the-Tee and 183rd in SG: Tee-to-Green, but showed promise with his precision at times as he ranked 21st in proximity and 68th in driving accuracy.
194Ted 
Potter Jr.
$361,540$325,000Potter, entering his age-37 season, made only four cuts in 19 starts last season. He earned as much as he did only because two of them were top-10s. That's been the story of his career though, wild swings. More often than not though, Potter Jr. is fighting just to make cuts.
195Brandon 
Wu - R
$172,987$325,000A final-round 65 at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship allowed Wu to surge to a one-shot victory and climb to a career-best 202nd in the Official World Golf Ranking, while also securing a spot inside the top 10 of the KFT's points list. The win at Victoria National Golf Club came just two weeks after he tied for second at the Albertsons Boise Open, marking his third top-10 in just six starts on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2020. Among Wu's five appearances at the PGA Tour level during the 2019-20 campaign, he posted a T17 at the Houston Open and missed just one cut at the Workday Charity Open.
196Johnson Wagner$46,925$325,000Wagner's pitiful earnings of just $4,692.50 per event during the 2019-20 season were a result of missing seven cuts in 10 starts while failing to add a single top-30 finish, despite appearing in several opposite field events. The 40-year-old's lack of power off the tee severely limits his upside, as he averaged only 284.7 yards in driving distance. Wagner has failed to advance to the FedEx Cup Playoffs in four consecutive seasons.
197Kramer Hickok$253,646$315,000Hickok tallied only seven total made cuts throughout his 2019-20 campaign, though he put up back-to-back top-25 performances at the Houston Open and Bermuda Championship during the fall series to avoid complete disaster in an otherwise disappointing sophomore effort. He posted zero top-50 results from the Charles Schwab Challenge through the Wyndham Championship, though Hickok ended the season top-20 in driving accuracy and 44th in SG: Around-the-Green.
198Josh 
Teater
$453,508$300,000Playing out the 126-150 category, Teater played in 15 events but missed nine cuts. One of his cashes, however, was runner-up at the oppo Puerto Rico Open, something that can't be counted on again for this season.
199Tyler McCumber$284,230$300,000The son of Mark McCumber was a rookie last season. But his next birthday will be his 30th and he made only half his cuts. He did have a top-25 at Torrey Pines, by far his season's highlight.
200Chris 
Baker
$270,300$300,000Baker was a 34-year-old rookie who made nine of 17 cuts. It's rare when a 34-year-old gets his first crack at the PGA Tour, but unfortunately, Baker did little with his break. He'll get another change this season, but likely won't get much more out of it.
201Vincent Whaley$207,571$285,000Whaley missed the cut or withdrew in 60 percent of his appearances throughout a rookie campaign that was highlighted by a top-10 showing at the Puerto Rico Open. The Georgia Tech product, who finished 183rd in the FedEx Cup standings, relied too heavily on his putter as he ranked 49th in SG: Putting, but just 198th in SG: Approach and 165th in proximity. On the bright side, he ended his first regular season on Tour with a top-40 at the Wyndham Championship to provide a small spark ahead of the upcoming fall series.
202Lee 
Hodges - R
$0$250,000Hodges took home the title at the Korn Ferry Tour's 2020 WinCo Foods Portland Open in early August to put the cherry on top of a successful KFT campaign that included five top-10s to just two missed cuts. He ranked top 5 among his peers in GIR percentage, ball striking and par-4 scoring average while also collecting the sixth-most birdies throughout the season. Hodges has made one career appearance at the PGA Tour level, tying for 54th at the 2018 RSM Classic.
203Zack 
Sucher
$215,568$225,000Sucher made the top 25 in his first two starts last season and ... that was that. He missed more cuts than he made. Sucher did earn more than $750k the year prior however, which means he's capable of faring much better if he gets enough starts.
204Ryan 
Brehm
$162,079$225,000The Korn Ferry grad played 17 events and made nine cuts but didn't have so much as a top-30. This was Brehm's second go-round on the PGA Tour and his reults were similar to his first try. Fortunately for Brehm, because of the pandemic, he gets another crack at it. Unfortunately, he likely won't take advantage of the opportunity.
205Taylor Pendrith - R$0$225,000Pendrith doesn't have a win under his belt in 2020 like the other names around him near the top of the Korn Ferry Tour Points list, but he went on a wild run this summer stringing together finishes of T3-2-T2-T2 from the TPC Colorado Championship through the Pinnacle Bank Championship. That's four consecutive top-3s before adding three additional top-25s throughout his last four starts to end the season. Pendrith, who won twice on the Mackenzie Tour in 2019, ranked fifth in driving distance and eighth in birdie average on the KFT.
206Rhein 
Gibson
$182,113$215,000Gibson failed to record a single top-25 finish in his first season at the PGA Tour level since his rookie year in 2016. The Aussie made the cut in 10 of his 16 starts, but he averaged a measly $11,382 in earnings per event. Gibson's short game appears to be a strength, but he ranked just 197th in both SG: Off-the-Tee and SG: Approach, which displays a major absence of upside.
207Jamie Lovemark$98,439$200,000Lovemark played under a major medical extension and still has16 events to accrue 309 points. He made 11 starts last season and made only three cuts, so fulfilling that obligation to keep his card seems unlikely.
208Lucas Bjerregaard$21,825$200,000The young player from Denmark appeared to have some potential after making the semifinals of the WGC-Match Play event in 2019, but he was only to make one cut in 10 appearances on Tour last year. Bjerregaard, a very long driver of the ball, played three events after the Tour re-started play but then went back overseas and it appears he may focus on the European Tour in 2021.
209Shawn Stefani$202,456$180,000Stefani is closing on 40-years old. He got in only 10 events last season out of the 126-150 category, making six cuts with two top-25s, both in oppo events.
210Martin Trainer$89,482$175,000It was a brutal 2019-20 campaign for Trainer, who missed the cut in 19 of 21 starts and failed to bring in even $100,000 in official earnings after enjoying a relatively successful rookie year during the 2018-19 season. Trainer ended the season with nine consecutive missed cuts from the Puerto Rico Open to the Wyndham Championship, ultimately finishing outside of the top 200 on Tour in SG: Tee-to-Green and SG: Total.
211David 
Lipsky - R
$0$175,000A win at July's TPC San Antonio Challenge accompanied by a T2 at the WinCo Foods Portland Open contributed to Lipsky's positioning inside the top 10 in the Korn Ferry Tour's points list. Lipsky ball striking throughout the 2020 campaign wasn't all that impressive as he ranked 52nd in total driving and 65th in GIR percentage, but he was sixth in birdie or better conversion and 16th in putting average. He possesses a decent amount of PGA Tour experience with 15 total starts since 2015, though he should still retain rookie eligibility ahead of the 2020-21 season.
212Anirban Lahiri$58,388$160,000A rib injury hindered Lahiri's performance during the fall series in 2019, but he then remained sideline from the Arnold Palmer Invitational until the Wyndham Championship due to an undisclosed reason. This may have been related to pandemic travel restrictions, however. Nonetheless, Lahiri made just five cuts in 13 starts during his 2019-20 campaign, failing to collect a single top-25 result in the process.
213Greyson 
Sigg - R
$0$150,000Sigg added his fourth top-10 of the 2020 KFT season at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship where a disappointing final-round performance kept him from forcing a playoff by just one shot. The former Georgia Bulldog finished the season third in the all-around ranking and sixth in scoring average. Sigg missed the cut in his lone PGA Tour appearance this past season at the 2019 RSM Classic, however.
214Stephan Jaeger - K$0$140,000Earning the final spot in opposite PGA Tour events throughout the 2020-21 season via a top-10 finish in the Korn Ferry Tour Points list, Jaeger won the Boise Open by two shots in August to get him this far. All three of his top-25 finishes on the KFT this year were actually top-5s, and he made the cut in 12 of 16 events. Jaeger had full status on the PGA Tour in 2018 and 2019, but missed 24 cuts over the two-season span.
215Roberto Castro$143,213$125,000Castro plays more on the Korn Ferry Tour than the PGA Tour. He was in 10 events, making five cuts, with two top-25s, both in oppo events. At age 35, not much will change this season.
216Rafael Campos$119,257$125,000Campos' rookie campaign was cut short in January due to an undisclosed injury, so he's been sidelined since a missed cut at the American Express. It's unclear at this point when he'll be able to return to tournament action, but his fall series included a top-25 performance at the Bermuda Championship. Upon his eventual return, the 32-year-old Puerto Rican will look to get back to the form that carried him to a victory at the Korn Ferry Tour's Bahamas Great Abaco Classic in 2019.
217Paul 
Barjon - R
$0$125,000Barjon missed the cut in four of his last five starts to end the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour season just barely inside the top 10 of the points list, having earned three runner-up finishes as well as a third-place result earlier in the summer. Barjon impressively tied for 20th at the 2019 RBC Canadian Open on the PGA Tour, but none of his metrics were too noteworthy on the KFT this year.
218Graham DeLaet$31,359$115,000DeLaet appeared in just five events during the 2019-20 season as he continues to plan when it'll be best for him to return from a nagging back injury and begin to use the 24 starts he has remaining on a Major Medical Extension. The Canadian has not seen tournament action since the Sony Open in early January, but he hasn't played a full schedule since 2017 due to injury. DeLaet plans to tee it up at the season-opening Safeway Open, but chronic back issues will probably make him a risky fantasy option for the remainder of his career.
219Ben 
Taylor
$99,775$105,000The LSU product's rookie campaign didn't go quite as planned as Taylor missed 13 cuts in 17 starts and didn't even make six figures in official money. He lost strokes in every SG subcategory despite finishing the season 48th in GIR percentage. At just 171st in total driving and 176th in SG: Tee-to-Green, it's hard to see Taylor making much of a jump in the immediate future.
220Vince 
Covello
$19,035$100,000A back injury forced Covello to withdraw from the regular season finale at the Wyndham Championship, which could impact his 2020-21 outlook depending on the severity, but he already had a long way to go before reaching fantasy relevance as he made just one cut in 10 starts during a tough rookie campaign. The Korn Ferry Tour's 2019 Louisiana Open champion sits just 578th in the Official World Golf Ranking.
221Ryan 
Blaum
$0$100,000Blaum got in only five events and didn't make a cut out of the 126-150 category. But he also played only two Korn Ferry events. He didn't have a known injury.
222Nelson Ledesma$45,520$95,000Ledesma, who won the Korn Ferry Tour's 2019 TPC Colorado Championship, struggled to the tune of 14 missed cuts in 17 starts throughout a disappointing rookie season on the PGA Tour. The Argentinian's outlook is bleak as he lost strokes across the board and ranked 189th or worse in GIR percentage, driving accuracy and SG: Tee-to-Green.
223Mito 
Pereira - R
$0$50,000Pereira's trio of top-10s throughout the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour season included a win at the Country Club de Bogota Championship and a third-place result at the Panama Championship back in February. He cooled off a bit as the season wore on, but retained his position inside of the top 10 in the KFT Points list and finished fifth in par-4 scoring average.
