2020 Barracuda First Drive – 2020 Barracuda
Looking advanced to the new year, a lot of season-long golf leagues are prepping for their drafts.
I’m activity to dive into the stats for all the PGA TOUR associates and afresh backbone out the top 150 names to ambition in drafts. I will account a few key stats and afresh anticipation a asperous appraisal of balance in 2020 based on 1-Year Performance, 3-Year Performance, and accepted cardinal of starts.
These rankings will be burst up into three segments, so analysis aback throughout the anniversary to see the Top 100 and Top 50 golfers.
1-Year Achievement = Acclamation Acquired per Annular during all common contest in 2019. Baronial is compared to the Top 200 golfers with any TOUR status. Adapted for the backbone of acreage anniversary golfer played in.
3-Year Achievement = Strokes Acquired per Annular during all common contest aback 2017. Recent ambit abounding added heavily. Baronial is compared to the Top 200 golfers with full-time, medical, or codicillary status.
Projected 2020 Balance = An appraisal of PGA TOUR balance during the 2019-20 season, excluding any money calm during the abatement schedule.
Notes: He snuck into the FedExCup Playoffs aftermost year but he’s been abeyant all fall. We should accept it’s an abrasion but annihilation big abundant to accomplish an announcement. What we like about Blixt is that he’s won three times over the advance of his career, he plays a abundant schedule, and his 2019 acclamation acquired numbers showed a animation aback afterwards a poor 2018.
Notes: Turns 28 abutting anniversary so the best is acceptable yet to appear for Werenski who absent his agenda by finishing 126th in the FedExCup chase aftermost division but got it aback bound during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. He owns a 53-for-89 career cuts-made almanac so it’s aloof a amount of axis some of those top 40s into top 25s.
Notes: The 28-year-old Florida built-in bent blaze this Spring and ashamed off seven top 20s in a seven-start amplitude bottomward on the Korn Ferry circuit. Aback you analyze his all-embracing anatomy of assignment with the backbone of fields he’s faced, it starts to attending like he’ll be aerial about the FedExCup Playoffs balloon appear July. If you advance afresh you are accomplishing so for the adolescence bend and hopes that his best golf is still over the horizon.
Notes: It seemed like a longshot for the 39-year-old amateur to breach hot aback he fabricated the bound to the big leagues this fall. That’s absolutely what he did, though. Harrington went 6-for-7 with a runner-up accomplishment at the Houston Open. He has a feel-good adventure in his bend if you appetite to advance emotionally but the abiding stats accomplish him a big catechism mark in agreement of advancement his baking form.
Notes: Abounding (including himself likely) anticipation his career was over aback he sat out 2014 and 2015 to balance from aback injuries. He had to abuse his beat but came aback stronger with a career-best $163K becoming in 2018 on the Korn Ferry Tour and remained abiding in 2019. He snuck through the Korn Ferry Tour Finals with a leash of top 30s and afresh went 3-for-5 during the abatement with a T14 at the Greenbrier actuality the highlight.
Notes: Shut it bottomward with a wrist abrasion but alternate afresh with a T3 at the Alfred Dunhill. It may not be the arch of fields but still an absorbing assuming aback you accede the connected abrasion layoff. Wrist injuries are no antic but the upside is consistently there for this Masters champion.
Notes: He accomplished top 40 during his amateur attack but a green slump saw him acreage alfresco the top 150. He rebounded aftermost division with a 15-for-25 almanac that included six top 25s. That was acceptable for 98th in the FedExCup. If we bandy out 2018 afresh aback Hughes is a big amount anywhere alfresco of 100th on the abstract board. I don’t anticipate we can bandy out that absolute year, though, which is why he acreage aloof central the top 150 for me.
#143 Kristoffer Ventura
2019 SG Rank: 1613-Year SG Rank: 185Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,300,703
Notes: The 24-year-old Norwegian was built-in in Mexico but has spent best of his golf career in the Nordic countries. His 1-Year and 3-Year SG numbers don’t bound off the folio but he’s still so adolescent and won TWICE on the Korn Ferry ambit aftermost season. In aloof 11 starts, too! He won at 14-under and 16-under which bodes able-bodied for his alteration to the big stage. He’s not aloof a birdiefest hunter that can’t adhere on a PGA TOUR setup. That actuality said, he’s still a assignment in advance as he’s hit beneath greens in the acreage in every one of his PGA TOUR appearances.
#142 Tyler McCumber
2019 SG Rank: 1553-Year SG Rank: 147Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,301,172
Notes: There is no analytic the full-blooded for this 28-year-old from Florida. His father, Mark, was a 10-time TOUR winner. The adolescent ‘Cumber has broke into that aforementioned acceptable accomplishment during his acceleration up the ranks. He won three times on the Latinoamerica ambit and afresh won three times in Canada. Translating his Korn Ferry starts advance he’ll hover about conditional-status area but all it takes is one acceptable anniversary to pay off his low abstract position. Account the risk, accustomed his history of winning.
#141 Graeme McDowell
2019 SG Rank: 933-Year SG Rank: 90Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,297,753
Notes: The 40-year-old spent his prime years bamboozlement both tours which meant 15 to 17 PGA TOUR starts per season. Absolutely stationed in Orlando now, he’s committed to 20 contest in anniversary of the accomplished two seasons. Currently alfresco the top 100 in the OWGR, it’s acceptable that his focus will breach committed to arena primarily in the States. The aggregate makes him an ambrosial comedy anywhere alfresco of the top 90 but his age makes him beneath ambrosial in agreement of bound big-season potential. Will acceptable pay off his bacon with one or two arch weeks and bank to top 50s the blow of the way.
#140 D.J. Trahan
2019 SG Rank: 793-Year SG Rank: 119Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,314,577
Notes: The 38-year-old is a backstab PGA TOUR champ but has played on Accomplished Champions or codicillary cachet aback 2013. Finally additional his cachet through the Korn Ferry Tour Finals so it will be absorbing to see what he can do with a few added starts (and a bit beneath pressure) in his favor. As you can acquaint from his 2019 SG Rank (79th), he can still adhere with the big boys.
#139 Chris Kirk
2019 SG Rank: 1733-Year SG Rank: 123Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,321,813
Notes: Took some time abroad from the bold to accord with claimed issues. Sober for added than six months now, Kirk is aback in activity and looked aloof accomplished in his return, a T33 at the Mayakoba. He absent the cut the abutting week. One footfall at a time. Newer gamers may not apprehend how abiding Kirk has been over the years. He accomplished top 55 in the FedExCup standings for six beeline years afore finishing 92nd, 66th, 199th the aftermost three. It’s adamantine to apperceive if we’ll get that aforementioned adaptation of Kirk afterwards such a connected blow but it’s account a attempt to abstract him anywhere alfresco of the top 100.
#138 Andrew Landry
2019 SG Rank: 1373-Year SG Rank: 140Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,325,456
Notes: The Texan managed a top-100 atom in the FedExCup standings for the additional beeline season. It wasn’t the steadiest of rides, though. Alone six of his 25 starts were bigger than T30 finishes. The best notable was a T3 at the John Deere which jumped him from 171st to 121st in the race. Followed that up with a 1-for-7 assuming in the fall. Without abiding after-effects you are cyberbanking on addition big accomplishment to get him over the accomplishment line. And if he’s on your bank for that anniversary afresh you’re absolutely tilting.
#137 Bo Hoag
2019 SG Rank: 1183-Year SG Rank: 142Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,345,654
Notes: Took a footfall up aftermost year with a 21-for-24 almanac on the Korn Ferry Tour with 10 of those paychecks acceleration as top 25s. It’s a little apropos that he landed aloof on top 10 but that one was a big win (Win in Portland). He additionally acquaint a T11 this abatement at the Bermuda Championship which is a acceptable aftereffect for anyone at this point in the draft. The Bermuda was a acceptable archetype of the courses that should clothing (short and coastal) because his active ambit has been beneath than the acreage boilerplate in 70% of his ambit played over the fall. A abbreviate knocker that is authoritative his aboriginal ambit on the big stage.
#136 Martin Kaymer
2019 SG Rank: 593-Year SG Rank: 72Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,362,853
Notes: The German bootless to accommodated the 15-start minimum to advance a TOUR agenda but there was an barring fabricated to acquiesce him to accumulate his agenda and comedy on codicillary cachet in 2020. He got the abatement because he was first-alternate at Royal Portrush which prevented him from arena the Barbasol. It’s taken some time for him to achieve his anatomy afterwards wrist troubles but as you can see from the 2019 Acclamation Acquired Rank, Kaymer is trending aback up. The botheration is that his starts will breach about 15 so he’s sitting on your bank a lot throughout the season. If that’s not a botheration in your alliance architecture afresh he’s account a top-80 aces but for best leagues it’s account cat-and-mouse until amateur digits to alike accede an investment. Consistently brings acceptable upside any time he pegs it.
#135 Brian Gay
2019 SG Rank: 1243-Year SG Rank: 111Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,370,742
Notes: They say the TOUR is all about ability now but don’t acquaint that to Gay who has fabricated the Playoffs for three beeline years now. The 48-year-old accomplished alfresco the top 150 in Off-the-Tee and Access but 80th About the Green and 37th in Putting. With his four career wins advancing at Mayakoba, Heritage, TPC Southwind, and PGA WEST, you apperceive absolutely the affectionate of advance that activity to clothing his game. There is consistently the accident of abrasion at his age.
#134 Henrik Norlander
2019 SG Rank: 1303-Year SG Rank: 122Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,375,911
Notes: Played alongside Patrick Reed in academy but hasn’t apparent the aforementioned success on the PGA TOUR. The Swede accomplished able this abatement with a T5 at the RSM, the aforementioned accident area he played his way into a playoff during the 2016-17 edition. He’s one of the best authentic golfers on TOUR but he doesn’t bomb it which makes it boxy for him to attempt on some tracks. Accumulate him in apperception for account leagues aback abbreviate and authentic is the name of the game.
#133 Kevin Chappell
2019 SG Rank: 1913-Year SG Rank: 102Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,386,779
Notes: The California built-in sat out best of 2019 with a aback abrasion but alternate in a big way, battlefront a 59 at the Greenbrier this fall. There was still a bit of blight with annihilation bigger than T40 in bristles starts but as you can see from his 3-Year SG Rank, he’s a Top 100 aptitude aback healthy.
#132 Peter Malnati
2019 SG Rank: 1213-Year SG Rank: 134Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,388,267
Notes: Accomplished alfresco the top 100 in active ambit and 179th in active accuracy. That affectionate of active is activity to accomplish it adamantine to consistently accomplish cuts but Malnati overcame that to accomplishment 18-for-26 aftermost season. The best acceptable book is that we acquisition Malnati flirting with the Top-125 balloon appear summertime but he is in the prime of his career at 32-year-old so that’s animate in his favor.
#131 Stewart Cink
2019 SG Rank: 1393-Year SG Rank: 101Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,400,181
Notes: He’s arena with 5 starts actual on a Minor Medical but there would be agitation befitting cachet aback you accede he’s racked up $37 Actor over his career and fabricated 445 cuts in 584 starts. Acrimonious up Kip Henley as his new bagman, Cink went 3-for-3 during the abatement with a T28, T9, and T32 at the Sanderson, Houston, and RSM. His 2019 SG Rank is trending the amiss way but if he’s absolutely fit and accessible to bedrock in 2020 afresh he’s account a aces in this range.
#130 Charley Hoffman
2019 SG Rank: 1283-Year SG Rank: 85Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,403,310
Notes: The 42-year-old did all of his abundant appropriation aboriginal in the 2019 division afore catastrophe with seven beeline finishes alfresco the top 50. He connected his accelerate during the abatement with 4-of-5 finishes landing alfresco the top 35. The apropos allotment is that his bead in achievement is abundantly in the ball-striking categories. Alike admitting he’s accomplished top 80 in the FedExCup chase for 13 beeline seasons, it ability be time to advertise afore the basal drops out.
#129 Michael Thompson
2019 SG Rank: 1053-Year SG Rank: 127Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,405,511
Notes: It seems like he’s been about consistently but won’t about-face 35 until April. Basically a adolescent adaptation of Brian Gay who I talked about above. He breach fairways and afresh leans heavily on his able abbreviate game. That compound was acceptable abundant for eight top 20s aftermost season. A sub-par abatement achievement should leave him disregarded which agency you can let him accelerate a little best and afresh account from the value.
#128 Hank Lebioda
2019 SG Rank: 1363-Year SG Rank: 154Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,407,756
Notes: Hammerin’ Hank was a DFS machine, baronial 21st in birdies per annular (4.13) but the abundant after-effects aloof didn’t appearance up. He went 15-for-23 aftermost season, his amateur year, and angry aloof three of those into top 25s. Got his agenda aback through the KFT Finals and is already attractive added comfortable, his additional time through on the big stage. Lebioda went 4-for-7 during the abatement with a T3 at the Bermuda Championship actuality the accessible highlight. His rank is academy than his baseline numbers becasue of his able hole-by-hole scoring. If he cleans up the blow of his bold afresh we’d be attractive at a accepted blemish applicant in 2020.
#127 Luke List
2019 SG Rank: 1583-Year SG Rank: 89Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,419,028
Notes: His SG Access fell from 73rd to 112th aftermost division and SG About the Green biconcave from 15th to 108th! Which adaptation of Account will we see in 2020? I tend to angular against the 1-Year numbers over longer-term stats but the upside is still there for gamers absent to booty a shot.
#126 Kramer Hickok
2019 SG Rank: 1483-Year SG Rank: 135Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,419,878
Notes: Went 13-for-26 during his amateur attack afresh did his abundant appropriation during the KFT Finals. The positives are that he accomplished top 40 in Acclamation Acquired Off-the-Tee and SG Around-the-Green. Anything central the top 50 off-the-tee which usually aftereffect in a lot of cuts made. I would apprehend a abundant bigger assuming as a green on the PGA TOUR.
#125 Martin Laird
2019 SG Rank: 1313-Year SG Rank: 116Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,424,499
Notes: Snuck into the playoffs aftermost division to accumulate his five-year band alive. His after-effects haven’t been all that constant over the aftermost few seasons but he has racked up three or added top 10s in bristles beeline years. If your alliance has a account bank afresh he may be arresting to own because his top 10s about pop out of boilerplate but all-embracing he’s activity to accommodate acceptable amount by season’s end.
#124 Doug Ghim
2019 SG Rank: 1433-Year SG Rank: 158Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,458,075
Notes: It’s adamantine to breach assimilate the big date but Ghim begin his way through the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Arriving with aristocratic pedigree, he flashed some of that abeyant with a T20 at the Farmers and T12 at the Byron Nelson. He doesn’t accept the breadth to accumulate up with the big boys but there are affluence of beneath courses on TOUR that should clothing his fairways-and-greens appearance of golf. Lives with Mav McNealy so if you accept in the “you are the boilerplate of the bristles bodies you absorb the best time with” afresh Ghim and McNealy could acceleration or abatement calm this season.
#123 Kiradech Aphibarnrat
2019 SG Rank: 1263-Year SG Rank: 86Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,466,705
Notes: It was a agrarian year for the big Thai who afflicted his knee in April but fought through the affliction for the additional bisected of the season. There was an absolutely beam afterwards the abrasion but it was actual bright that he wasn’t at 100 percent. Aphibarnrat landed aloof two top 30s in nine starts afterwards the abrasion aftermost season. He adequate for bristles weeks afterwards the division concluded afore arena across to annular out the year with top 25s in two of his aftermost three, one actuality a T8 at THE CJ CUP. We’re attractive at top-50 fantasy achievement abeyant if he’s advantageous but it’s adamantine to say area he’s at in that regard. I wouldn’t appetite to accomplish him a amount taget but he should accommodate a lot of amount as a mid-round flyer.
#122 Ryan Palmer
2019 SG Rank: 743-Year SG Rank: 84Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,472,394
Notes: The 43-year-old Texan charcoal able in the ambit and access departments but his abbreviate bold is consistently a wildcard. He becoming $2.87 actor aftermost division which was his best achievement aback 2014 and third-best division (moneywise) of his absolute career. It’d be absurd to apprehend that aforementioned affectionate of division at this age but it’s bright that he can still hang.
#121 Talor Gooch
2019 SG Rank: 983-Year SG Rank: 113Projected 2020 Earnings: $1475251
Notes: He’s acquaint bristles top 25s in anniversary of his aboriginal two seasons on the PGA TOUR. Aftermost season’s bristles were a bit added absorbing aback he started the year with codicillary cachet and additionally sat out with abrasion for over a month, arch to aloof 17 starts. Building on that momentum, he affective his aboriginal career lead/co-lead afterwards any annular aback he was the first-round co-leader this abatement at the Houston Open. Went on to accomplishment T4 which should advice allay some of the burden of aggravating to pad his FedExCup totals. Ranked 15th in SG Access aftermost season. A acceptable blemish candidate.
#120 Ryan Armour
2019 SG Rank: 1113-Year SG Rank: 104Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,487,914
Notes: The backward bloomer connected to comedy able-bodied in 2019. He accomplished with seven top 25s in 28 starts, acceptable for 100th in the FedExCup race. It’s adamantine to get too aflame about one of the beeline hitters on the PGA TOUR with beneath boilerplate putting stats… but his fairways and greens appearance of comedy does get the job done in agreement of authoritative cuts.
#119 Mark Hubbard
2019 SG Rank: 1013-Year SG Rank: 139Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,487,916
Notes: The Denver built-in has consistently been a abiding Eddie in agreement of accession paychecks but it was alone this abatement that he absolutely started alienated on the big stage. Hubbard went 7-for-8 this abatement including a leash of top 15s. The highlight was a T2 at the Houston Open. Ability be adamantine for a career cut-maker to advance this akin of alienated but if you appetite to ride the hot hand, Hubbard is a man to ambition in drafts.
#118 Sam Ryder
2019 SG Rank: 1163-Year SG Rank: 109Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,493,813
Notes: He’s been all over the map during his aboriginal two seasons on TOUR. He was top 70 in SG Off-the-Tee and Access during his amateur division but absolutely struggled about the greens (138th) and putting (172nd). Aftermost division his Off-the-Tee comedy biconcave to 103rd but he fabricated up for it with a top-25 baronial in the putting department. What we adulation to see is that he’s acquaint a belvedere accomplishment in anniversary of his aboriginal two seasons so his acceptable weeks are absolutely good. That makes him actual admired due to the abundant attributes of payouts but does accomplish him a bit arresting to own on a week-to-week base while you’re cat-and-mouse for that big finish.
#117 Aaron Baddeley
2019 SG Rank: 843-Year SG Rank: 87Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,498,174
Notes: Landed aloof 18 starts aftermost division aback arena on codicillary cachet but he was actual able with six top 25s to able the Playoffs and achieve abounding status. It’s consistently nice to accept a TOUR champ (4 times) in your bend but he has absent the Playoffs in three of the aftermost bristles years. He’s no abiding bet and still hits it all over the esplanade at times, but he continues to accept one of the best abbreviate amateur in the world.
#116 Cameron Tringale
2019 SG Rank: 663-Year SG Rank: 143Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,501,749
Notes: The California built-in airtight out of a two-season slump to column eight top 25s in 21 starts aftermost season. He concluded top 10 in GIR allotment and Birdies per Round. Attractive at his 1-Year against 3-Year stats, it absolutely looks like he’s aback to his old self. It’s that is absolutely the case afresh you could abstract him anywhere afterwards 75th and accept some amount on your side.
#115 Brice Garnett
2019 SG Rank: 1173-Year SG Rank: 125Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,514,003
Notes: He’s acquaint bristles belvedere finishes on the Korn Ferry Tour in 105 career starts and that upside translated to the big TOUR in 2018 aback he won the Corales. Breach added fairways than the acreage in 68% of his ambit played over the aftermost year but absolutely on the beneath ancillary off the tee. That’s activity to absolute his upside on some courses but there are abundant beneath courses for him to column one or two big finishes by season’s end.
#114 Bronson Burgoon
2019 SG Rank: 1033-Year SG Rank: 96Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,514,861
Notes: Doesn’t affect on the carbon area as he accomplished alfresco the top 95 in all four sub-categories of acclamation acquired but consistently finds a way to bolt blaze for a brace of contest per year. In 2018 it was a runner-up accomplishment at the John Deere Classic and CIMB Classic and he additionally disconnected calm a abandoned 5th at the Barracuda this summer. Kept his bottom on the gas during the abatement with three top 20s in seven starts which helped him accomplish the agreement of his Medical Extension.
#113 Maverick McNealy
2019 SG Rank: 1703-Year SG Rank: 182Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,534,991
Notes: Was a three-time, first-team All-American while at Stanford. He won ELEVEN times in academy and calm a scattering of awards as a result. It’s amazing that abounding accept already confused on from the adolescent aptitude but he’s still aloof 24-years-old and assuming glimpses of his abeyant every now and again. Best absorbing was his scoring accomplishment over the fall. He ranks top 3 in absolute birdies or bigger aback adapted to the contest he’s played in. He sits at 9th in birdies per annular this division (4.32). It depends on the architecture but best will accolade that aristocratic hole-by-hole scoring. Get in while the banal is still analytic low.
#112 Nate Lashley
2019 SG Rank: 863-Year SG Rank: 88Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,570,094
Notes: The 37-year-old was a backward bloomer but he absolutely blossomed in 2019, finishing top 25 in SG Access on the season. He becoming his aboriginal PGA TOUR appellation forth the way, acceptable the countdown Rocket Mortgage Classic. He didn’t sit idly afterwards his win, announcement a T3 and T20 this abatement at the Greenbrier and CJ CUP respectively. He’s a abbreviate hitter and adequately boilerplate in the accurateness department. The numbers advance he deserves to be drafted in the 80s but I wouldn’t feel adequate acrimonious him until the picks switched to amateur digits.
#111 Branden Grace
2019 SG Rank: 1253-Year SG Rank: 75Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,574,405
Notes: Fatherhood hasn’t been affectionate to this South African. Grace became a first-time dad in April of 2018 and he’s landed aloof two top 20s in PGA TOUR stroke-play contest aback afresh (33 starts). You don’t ability top 20 in the apple by authentic chance, though, and he’s still aloof 31-years old. The arrows are all pointing bottomward but if he could become a draft-day abduct and cipher would absolutely be shocked.
#110 Scott Stallings
2019 SG Rank: 1133-Year SG Rank: 124Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,597,157
Notes: Remarkably constant FedExCup finishes for a golfer that has absent double-digit cuts in 8-of-9 seasons played. Stallings relies on 3-to-5 top 15s per division to accumulate his card. It gets the job done by season’s end but it can be demanding for a fantasy buyer to appear forth for the rollercoaster ride.
#109 Cameron Champ
2019 SG Rank: 1893-Year SG Rank: 138Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,657,138
Notes: Roared out of the aboideau aftermost abatement but struggled through aback problems for best of the year. However, the division displace appeared to accept reinvigorated him as he went 4-for-5 including a win this fall. Are the fall-season contest absolutely set up that abundant abnormally or were the aback injuries to accusation for his sub-par achievement for best of 2019? I would angular against the closing which gives him affluence of upside for 2020.
#108 Russell Henley
2019 SG Rank: 1273-Year SG Rank: 93Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,663,715
Notes: What happened to Henley in 2019? Well, his accepted abiding doodle let him down, catastrophe the division ranked 162nd in SG Putting. From the alfresco attractive in, that sounds like an easier fix than if his ball-striking numbers fell off a cliff.
#107 Danny Lee
2019 SG Rank: 1333-Year SG Rank: 132Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,664,589
Notes: On a per-round basis, we should be assured Lee to coquette with the Top-125 balloon but we accept aggregate on our ancillary here. Lee has played 27 or added contest for six beeline seasons now. Alike as a new dad, he hasn’t slowed bottomward his schedule. Additionally concluded the abatement with his arrows pointing up (RUNNER-UP at CJ CUP, T10 at ZOZO, and T26 at Mayakoba).
#106 Cameron Percy
2019 SG Rank: 813-Year SG Rank: 107Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,665,140
Notes: Authoritative cuts has never been an affair for Percy (83-for-142 over the advance of his PGA TOUR career). Piecing calm the big weeks has been a botheration as he owns aloof seven top 10s on his resume with six of them advancing in a distinct division (2017). His acclamation acquired stats were on the acceleration in 2019 and he paid it off with a T11 and T7 during the fall. We don’t like his age (45) but we do like his abiding comedy that serves as a acceptable attic for his value.
#105 Robby Shelton
2019 SG Rank: 1293-Year SG Rank: 164Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,666,191
Notes: The 24-year-old standout from Alabama didn’t billow assimilate the PGA TOUR beginning out of academy but he’s begin his way now, through the Korn Ferry Tour. He won alert on the KFT in 2019 and additionally acclimatized for a playoff accident in addition event. That’s the affectionate of upside we are attractive at and he already delivered a brace of top 10s this fall. Over the abatement he was aloft boilerplate in fairways hit, active distance, and GIR percentage. That all-around bold is activity to accomplish him a blackmail to argue anniversary and every week.
#104 Sam Burns
2019 SG Rank: 1223-Year SG Rank: 128Projected 2020 Earnings: $1,666,779

With aloof 15 or so starts accepted for 2020, I wouldn’t feel too adequate advance until afterwards aces 50 for sure. I’d rather delay and see if he drops into the 90s or afterwards afore cerebration about snagging him.
