2013-14 Fantasy Golf Outlook

Gay's 2013 season was a lot like his career. He's a homerun hitter, but he strikes out a lot. Last year he picked up a win at the Humana Challenge in January, but earned only $400k after that win. Gay will likely end up in a similar spot on the money list again in 2014 and it will likely be due to one big week. The problem is, you never know when that week will come. He's too much of a risk in salary cap formats and in drafts leagues he should go in the 60-70 range.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Gay's 2013 season was a lot like his career. He's a homerun hitter, but he strikes out a lot. Last year he picked up a win at the Humana Challenge in January, but earned only $400k after that win. Gay will likely end up in a similar spot on the money list again in 2014 and it will likely be due to one big week. The problem is, you never know when that week will come. He's too much of a risk in salary cap formats and in drafts leagues he should go in the 60-70 range.

2013

Surprisingly, without a late-season run in 2012, Brian Gay would have been outside the top 125 last season. This from a guy who not only won twice during the 2009 season, but did so in astounding fashion with blowout wins both times. Gay hasn't resembled that player in a while, though. In fact, he hasn't even posted a top-3 since 2010. The farther he gets away from that glorious run, the more it looks like an aberration. Gay has been a quality player on the PGA TOUR for a while, but it looks like he's settling into territory just over the $1 million mark. His upside remains high, but he's probably not worth a pick in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues, he's worth a look in the ninth or 10th round.

2012

Gay showed heretofore unknown upside in 2009 when he won twice and earned more than $3 million. Since then, however, he's failed to come anywhere near those heights. The fashion in which he won those two events in 2009 leads us to believe he might not have staying power to keep up a high level of play. He won those two events in a short span, and in one ran the field, showing that it might have been a case of a player getting extremely hot and capitalizing. Not that it can't happen again, but we haven't seen that form the last two years. Hoping that it might be seen again this season is foolish to bank on.

2011

Gay settled down last year after a breakout 2009 season when he won twice. He wasn't able to earn another victory last season, but he did get a runner-up finish at the Byron Nelson Championship. Gay showed a lot of game in 2009, and it's hard to tell if that was a trend or a mirage, but considering he earned more than $2 million in 2008, he seems to be a safe bet to at least hit his 2010 number. Gay is extremely accurate off the tee as well as on the green, ranking in the top 20 for both categories in each of the last three seasons.

2010

Gay posted career-best numbers in 2009, but will have a hard time surpassing or even matching them this season. Gay was on fire early last season and won two tournaments, but he rarely matched that level of play outside of the tournaments where he claimed victory. Gay played well enough last season to be eligible for the big events in 2010, which should help his numbers in the long run. Gay has the skills to reach the winner's circle, but it's not likely that lightning will strike again twice in 2010. He came from 111th (end of 2008) to finish at 46th in the final 2009 Official World Golf Rankings.

2009

Gay did most of his damage during weaker events in 2008 and as such, he's not a good pick at this price. Expect a decline in his production this season.

2008

Brian Gay is accurate off the tee and accurate on the green. Getting to the green however is a problem. A closer look at his stats suggests that Gay sacrifices distance off the tee to remain accurate. That leads to longer shots into the green which causes the low G.I.R. average, which also directly affects the putts per green number, which in this case is probably a little misleading. What it boils down to is this, Gay needs to find a better balance between distance and accuracy, or his ceiling will always be limited.

2007

Gay can putt. He's been ranked in the top 50 the last five years, and three of those years he was in the top 10. It hasn't equated to victories, though, or even many top-5 finishes. Gay has been at this since 1994, and he's always had the ability to putt, so to think he's going to figure out the other parts of his game this season is foolish. If we were dealing with a golfer in his fourth year on Tour, there would be hope that he could turn it around, but that's not the case.
