2013-14 Fantasy Golf Outlook

Some players handle the major hangover well and some don't. Watson appears to have struggled with his new status as a major winner last year as he failed to crack the $2 million mark. Watson is clearly better than the number he posted last year, but he doesn't seemed to be fully invested in becoming a great player, which has to worry anyone who drafts him. The upside is still there, I'm just not sure we'll see it this year. He's an intriguing pick in salary cap leagues, but I'd advise against it. In draft leagues he'll probably go a bit early because of his name, but he should be in the 30-40 range.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Some players handle the major hangover well and some don't. Watson appears to have struggled with his new status as a major winner last year as he failed to crack the $2 million mark. Watson is clearly better than the number he posted last year, but he doesn't seemed to be fully invested in becoming a great player, which has to worry anyone who drafts him. The upside is still there, I'm just not sure we'll see it this year. He's an intriguing pick in salary cap leagues, but I'd advise against it. In draft leagues he'll probably go a bit early because of his name, but he should be in the 30-40 range.

2013

Three players in the top 5 of the 2012 money list did not capture a major last season, but Bubba Watson did. His win came at the Masters in April, and although he suffered a bit of a hangover, missing consecutive cuts, he quickly got back on track and by season's end was again on top of his game. With the "major" hurdle already out of the way, the sky is the limit for Watson. Considering that Watson only won once last season, it seems reasonable that he could top his earnings from 2012. Obviously, that will take a lot of things falling into place. He's not a horrible salary cap pick this season, but he's certainly a risky one. In draft leagues, he should go in the first round.

2012

The life of the "big-hitter" on the PGA Tour can be tough. While it's easier to get noticed, it's sometimes harder to get the credit you deserve. Watson has been a hot commodity on the PGA Tour since his rookie season because he can hit the ball a mile, but it wasn't until late in the 2009 season that he started to be recognized as a solid all-around player. Watson just missed on the 2009 PGA Championship, losing in a playoff to Martin Kaymer, but instead of letting that get him down, he took the positives out of that situation and parlayed it into two wins in 2010. Watson has all the tools to continue to grow on the PGA Tour, and his ascent atop the rankings should continue this year.

2011

Lost in the sand trap debacle at Whistling Straits last year was Bubba Watson's performance at the PGA Championship. Lest anyone forget, he finished runner-up to Martin Kaymer. But much like Kaymer's win, Watson's runner-up finish was overshadowed by Dustin Johnson's misfortune. In addition to his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship, Watson earned a win, another runner-up and a third-place finish. The only drawback to his game is consistency. He's not going to produce every time out, but about once a month he's good for a solid performance. Expect Watson to improve this season, both in high-end finishes and consistency. He's a statistical stud. What he lacks in accuracy off the tee, he makes up for in every other aspect of his game.

2010

Is Watson all hype? He's yet to accomplish much on the PGA TOUR, yet he's probably one of its most recognizable names. It's obvious that the long hitters garner more attention than other PGA TOUR golfers, but sooner or later, you have to produce if you want to be considered among the best. Watson came close last season to breaking through, but he was never able to close the deal. At this price, Watson is certainly worth a look, but don't expect him to garner $4 million in a season anytime soon.

2009

Watson has played below expectations over the last two years and he's bound to break through at some point. He's a safe pick because he won't come in any lower than his 2008 number, but his upside is huge. Watson reported severe allergies at the AT&T National causing him the withdraw after nine holes.

2008

Bubba Watson can hit the ball a long way, now Bubba needs to learn how to find a fairway. Watson has been the PGA Tour leader in driving distance the last two seasons, but it has come at the expense of his accuracy. What I like about Watson though, is that he dramatically improved his putting from year one to year two, up to 86th on tour from 148th his rookie season. If he stays on that track and improves his accuracy even just a little, he should see a dramatic improvement in his overall numbers in 2008.

2007

For all the attention Watson received early last season, he really didn't accomplish much after the first few events. He finished fourth at the Sony Open in January, third at the Chrysler Classic of Tucson in February and did little the rest of the way. He did pick up the pace toward year's end, which is a good sign, but it's hard to know how far out on a limb you should go with Watson. The driving distance is nice to have and he was top 50 in greens. He just needs the putter to come around. It eventually will, just not sure it will be in 2007.
