2016-17 Fantasy Golf Outlook

First of all, here's hoping the golf gods shine brightly down on Saunders and give him a great 2016-17 PGA Tour season in the starts he gets to continue the great legacy of his grandfather. On the golfing side of things we'll see him some on the PGA Tour and a bunch on the Web.com Tour. He'll need to fix both his driving and iron play as he was 142ndin strokes gained-tee to green and 140th in strokes gained-total while ranking 128th in greens in regulation.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

First of all, here's hoping the golf gods shine brightly down on Saunders and give him a great 2016-17 PGA Tour season in the starts he gets to continue the great legacy of his grandfather. On the golfing side of things we'll see him some on the PGA Tour and a bunch on the Web.com Tour. He'll need to fix both his driving and iron play as he was 142ndin strokes gained-tee to green and 140th in strokes gained-total while ranking 128th in greens in regulation.

2015-16

Letís get this out of the way: Heís Arnold Palmerís grandson. Saunders registered four top 16s in the Web.com Tour finals, after having a lackluster regular season. The 27-year-old from Clemson played one PGA Tour event last year Ė yes, it was Bay Hill. But he acquitted himself nicely, finishing T43 (after a final-round 77). Itís a feel-good story that heís made the Tour but, despite having a good priority ranking at No. 13, heíll probably be more pauper than the second coming of the King.
