2013-14 Fantasy Golf Outlook

Ernst hit pay-dirt in early May last year when he won the Wells Fargo Championship. That's the good news, the bad news is that he earned less than $100k outside that one week. It's certainly promising that Ernst was able to get a victory last season, but it's also troubling that he was unable to get anything done outside that victory. It's not uncommon to struggle after a big win and although Ernst will probably play better this year than he did after his win last year, it's probably not enough to justify a pick in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should go in the 80-90 range.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Ernst hit pay-dirt in early May last year when he won the Wells Fargo Championship. That's the good news, the bad news is that he earned less than $100k outside that one week. It's certainly promising that Ernst was able to get a victory last season, but it's also troubling that he was unable to get anything done outside that victory. It's not uncommon to struggle after a big win and although Ernst will probably play better this year than he did after his win last year, it's probably not enough to justify a pick in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should go in the 80-90 range.

2013

Ersnt was one of four players to make it through all four stages of PGA TOUR Q-School: Pre-qualifying, first stage, second stage and final stage. That is impressive stuff under the most heightened of pressures. While Ernst backed up a little bit on the sixth and final day, he did shoot a 66-67 combination in the fourth and fifth rounds, which gave him some breathing room for Monday’s final round. Fantasy players should see how Ernst reacts to his first few starts on the PGA TOUR before deciding if he’s for real and should be a member of your team.
