RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Merritt's third season on the PGA Tour was his best, but considering he failed to make even $900k, that's not saying much. His rookie season was fairly productive, but his second season was a disaster. Merritt rebounded well in his third season, but if this is as good as it gets, then he's going to spend his career fighting to stay alive. As such, he's not a good option in salary cap leagues, mainly due to his limited upside. In draft leagues he'll likely go undrafted.

2013-14

Merritt played his best golf early in Web.com season last year, earning five of his six top-10s. He was consistent in 2013 but only one top-3 finish and no wins.

2011

In his rookie season on the PGA TOUR, Troy Merritt grabbed the final spot inside the top 125. Merritt used a strong fall finish to earn those last few dollars, but his season was made by a third-place finish at the Zurich Classic. In his first year on the PGA TOUR, Merritt ranked 36th in putting average. He also ranked 32nd in birdies per hole. Merritt has some potential, but after such an erratic opening season, it's probably better to wait on him.

2010

Merritt will be on a lot people's draft board because of his win at Q School, but he was not really that successful on the Nationwide Tour in 2009. Merritt won an event in and the $117,000 earned for that event represented 77% of his earnings. Tread cautiously with the former player at Boise State.
