RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fisher, a European Tour regular who nearly won the British Open in 2009, came to Q-school to try get his PGA TOUR card to not only have a second place to play but, according to him, improve his chances of getting into the majors and World Golf Championship events. Well he did exactly that, finishing second overall. He also played like a veteran, shooting a third-round 65 and a final-round 66 on a day when many players crumble under the pressure.
isher won his first two matches at the WGC Match-play event last season and finished with a Top-15 at the Masters, so we know he can play. Will he take the next step this year? We've seen flashes from Fisher over the years, but he hasn't quite panned out as expected. This could be the year, then again, maybe he just shows flashes and no consistency again this season. Either way, he's worth a look as he'll come in handy during those big events.
Fisher is one of the best young players from the other side of the pond, and he showed some, but not all, of his talent last year. Fisher made a nice run at the British Open and success is only a matter of time. He'll likely play a Euro-heavy schedule in 2010, but he'll play enough PGA TOUR events to make a difference. Fisher, who ranked 29th at the end of 2008, finished at 18th in the final 2009 Official World Golf Rankings.
