2013-14 Fantasy Golf Outlook

Thompson is a tough guy to figure out. Is he the guy who won the Honda Classic in 2013 and contended at the 2012 U.S. Open, or is he the guy who's done little outside those two events? Many young players show a pattern like this early in their careers and unfortunately, these players either find the consistency or they don't, there's no way to tell at this stage. With that said, without the consistency, Thompson's number is just too high this year.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Thompson is a tough guy to figure out. Is he the guy who won the Honda Classic in 2013 and contended at the 2012 U.S. Open, or is he the guy who's done little outside those two events? Many young players show a pattern like this early in their careers and unfortunately, these players either find the consistency or they don't, there's no way to tell at this stage. With that said, without the consistency, Thompson's number is just too high this year.

2013

Thompson made an improbable run at the 2012 U.S. Open where he ended up just outside the winner's circle. That week he earned nearly $700K, almost half his season total. That gives you an idea of how he played outside that one glorious week in June. Obviously, with a track record like that, you don't want any piece of Thompson this season in salary cap formats. The upside to Thompson is that he'll get to play the U.S. Open again this year, and you never know. In draft leagues, he's a ninth-round pick at best.

2012

Nothing flashy about Thompson's rookie year on the PGA Tour - 15 cuts made in 25 events, six Top-25s and two Top-5s. His best finish came at the McGladrey Classic in October when he finished third. There's not a lot to go on with Thompson as his resume is pretty thin, both on the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.

2011

Thompson spent his entire 2010 season on the Hooters Tour, which is a notch below the Nationwide Tour. He dominated there, however, and winning has a way of carrying over. Sure, it's a huge step up for Thompson this year, but he's still playing the same game, so expect some success this season.
