Golf Draft Kit: 2019-20 Rankings & Profiles

This article is part of our Golf Draft Kit series.

Below are our 2019-20 fantasy golf rankings. Golfers are listed by 2019-20 projected earnings. This list includes:

• Top 125 on FedEx Cup Points List 
• Notable Exempt Players not in Top 125 (E) 
• Non-Rookies from Korn Ferry Tour Top-25 Money List (K) 
• Non-Rookies from Korn Ferry Tour Finals (F)

1. Brooks Koepka
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $9,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $9,684,006  

Entering the 2018-19 season, it was still debatable as to who was the best golfer in the world. Entering this season, the debate is over. Koepka grabbed another major victory last season and was a threat at the other three. Koepka is clearly the No. 1 pick in drafts and should be the highest-valued player in auctions. His ceiling is entirely up to him as when he's focused he almost always wins and he always contends. That's the good news. The bad news is his number is just too high for salary cap purposes this season.

2. Justin Thomas
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $8,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $5,013,084  

Thomas is still an enigma as he looks like the best player in the world at times and others, he looks unrecognizable. Last season he had to deal with a wrist injury that cost him two months in the middle of the season, yet he still managed to bank over $5 million. Considering his previous two seasons he

1. Brooks Koepka
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $9,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $9,684,006  

Entering the 2018-19 season, it was still debatable as to who was the best golfer in the world. Entering this season, the debate is over. Koepka grabbed another major victory last season and was a threat at the other three. Koepka is clearly the No. 1 pick in drafts and should be the highest-valued player in auctions.

The bad news is his number is just too high for salary cap purposes this season.

2. Justin Thomas
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $8,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $5,013,084  

Thomas is still an enigma as he looks like the best player in the world at times and others, he looks unrecognizable. Last season he had to deal with a wrist injury that cost him two months in the middle of the season, yet he still managed to bank over $5 million. Considering his previous two seasons he earned $8 million and $9 million respectively, Thomas is almost a "must-have" in salary cap formats this season. His $5 million price tag is the only thing keeping him from a definite "must-have" as that's a large investment, but there's every reason to believe that with a full season, he'll again be around $8 million this year.

3. Rory McIlroy
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $7,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $7,785,286  

If not for Brooks Koepka, McIlroy's season would be the talk of the golf world. Though he didn't win a major, he was the best golfer from beginning to end. Majors however are what elite golfers are measured by and McIlroy hasn't won one since 2014. McIlroy was extremely consistent last season and he finished with a bang and yet there are still question marks surrounding his ability to win another major. Those aren't going to go away anytime soon and the longer he goes without another major, the more the pressure will build. McIlroy will continue to play at a high-level this season, but asking a repeat of last year's performance, may be a bit too much.

4. Dustin Johnson
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $7,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $5,534,619  

If you judge DJ by his spot on the final FedEx points list, then it's easy to consider his season a disappointment, but his spot on that list doesn't nearly tell the story of his season. DJ's spot on the final FedEx list, like many others, is due to one bad week in Atlanta. Hidden in that 29th spot on the list is over $5 million in earnings, which isn't too shabby. Though $5 million is a great season for most, DJ generally produces at a higher level, and his output from this past season was significantly lower than his previous three seasons, which means, for the first time since 2016, you can actually consider taking him in a salary cap format.

5. Jon Rahm
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $6,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $4,990,110  

Rahm is in a similar position to a few other players on the PGA Tour in that he's well accomplished already, but he's yet to have that breakthrough moment. Then again, he's only 24. It's hard to believe that this guy, who has earned over $15 million in three full years on the PGA Tour is still just a young pup. Rahm will only get better from here as his breakout win is just around the corner. He's capable of posting a number north of $8 million, which puts him in the conversation for a salary cap selection this season, but obviously, at this number, there's a lot of risk.

6. Xander Schauffele
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $6,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $5,609,456  

Schauffele again showed what he's capable of this past season and he again hinted at what he could be. He's already a top-10 golfer, but there are signs that he could be more. He continues to show well during the biggest events, but he's had trouble closing the deal. Schauffele will continue to improve this season and maybe even close the deal at a major. His number is still a bit too high for salary cap purposes.

7. Patrick Cantlay
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $6,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $6,121,488  

Much was expected of Cantlay entering this past season and by all accounts, he delivered. No, he didn't win a major or a WGC event, of The PLAYERS, or a FedEx event, but in every other aspect, he was great. In that sense, it was almost a break out year, but not quite. $6 million in earnings would certainly qualify as a breakout season for just about anyone, but a lot is expected of Cantlay and until he picks up a win at a larger event, he won't truly have met his potential. That win comes this season however, but it won't be enough to justify a salary cap selection this season as his number is just too high.

8. Tony Finau
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $5,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $4,344,380  

Finau has earned over $16 million since first joining the PGA Tour five seasons ago and yet he's won just one event. It's amazing that a golfer as highly thought of as Finau has just one win on his resume. That will change sometime soon and when it does, it could open the flood gates. His number from this past season is considerable, but Finau appears to have the upside to reach $6 million if all goes well. It's certainly a risky play, but Finau is worth some consideration in salary cap leagues this season.

9. Justin Rose
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $5,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $4,358,849  

Two years ago, Rose finished the season atop the World Golf Rankings and it looked like a big year was on the horizon. It didn't actually play-out that way however as Rose never found the form that he often displayed the year prior. That's not to say that it was a bad season, it's just that more was expected of Rose after the way he finished the previous season. His "down" season makes him an intriguing prospect for salary cap purposes this season though. Rose's number is large, but he's proven capable of topping $8 million in one season. With that said, he's landed in the $4-$5 million range more often than not over the past decade, which makes him a sketchy salary cap pick this season.

10. Bryson DeChambeau
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $5,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,186,232  

DeChambeau's 2017-2018 season was absolutely insane. It would have been nearly impossible to replicate what he did during that season last year, but even with that said, more was expected. DeChambeau was north of $8 million just two years ago and while that seemed a little outrageous, something in the neighborhood of $5 million this past season was certainly within reason, but obviously that didn't happen. DeChambeau never found his stride this past season and his slow-play issues near the end likely wore on him. If he can get that behind him, (hopefully by speeding-up his play), then he should be back in the top-10 next season.

11. Matt Kuchar
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $4,600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $6,294,690 

Coming off his worst season in over a decade and on the wrong side of 40, there were concerns prior to this past season that Kuchar might be on the downside of his career. He put those concerns to rest early in the season however as he won twice before the month of February. Kuchar remained productive for the remainder of the season and although he trailed off towards the end, there's nothing bad to say about what he accomplished last season. As for this year, he set the bar way too high for salary cap purposes. Expect a regression this season, mostly because he played so well last year and can't possibly match that output again.

12. Hideki Matsuyama
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $4,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,335,137 

Six years into his PGA Tour career, it's beginning to look like Matsuyama is destined to be a really good golfer instead of an elite golfer. He had an elite season in 2017, when he won three events and topped $8 million in earnings, but prior to that and since then, he's settled-in around $4 million per season. Last season he failed to even get to $4 million, which puts him in-play as salary cap option this season, but don't expect another $8 million season.

13. Paul Casey
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $4,300,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $4,257,040  

Casey's first go-round on the PGA Tour was a success, but after a few flat seasons, he really upped his game. This second go-round started in 2015 and in that time, he's earned over $3.6 million per season. This past season was his best as he crossed the $4 million threshold for the first time and picked-up his second PGA Tour victory. Casey did turn 42 this past season and the inevitable down turn in his game is coming, but Casey should be able to stave off Father Time for a few more years.

14. Webb Simpson
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $4,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $4,690,572  

Perhaps the most unheralded star on the PGA Tour, Simpson just continues to produce year after year. Though he has only five wins in his career, he was fortunate enough to pick-up a major early-on and he's free of the stress that comes with being this productive without a major. Simpson is probably never going to be the guy that won $6 million in 2011 again, but he'll be the guy who wins between $3-$5 million every season for the foreseeable future. His earnings number came down a bit from the previous season last year, but not enough to consider him for salary cap purposes.

15. Rickie Fowler
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $4,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,945,810  

Fowler has been a superstar seemingly since the day he joined the PGA Tour in 2010 and yet, there's always been this feeling that he's not living up to expectations. That feeling stems from his lack of a major win and only five wins in total in 10 seasons. The tantalizing part is that he's in the mix quite often as evidence by his 14 career runner-ups. It always looks like the year that Fowler is going to break-out before the season starts, and then it ends up just being another highly-productive, yet unsatisfying season. There's no reason to think he's ever going to be among the elite, but there's also no reason to think he'll regress in any major way.

16. Patrick Reed
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $4,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,593,844  

Heading into the FedEx playoffs this past season, Reed was on the brink of a relatively poor season. A win at the Northern Trust saved Reed from that fate and a top-20 the following week, paired with a top-10 at the TOUR Championship capped off what was solid run to end the season. Reed has shown a pattern of playing better during Ryder Cup years over the past six seasons, so it would make sense that he improves upon his number from this past season this year.

17. Tommy Fleetwood
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $4,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,853,651  

Fleetwood's claim to fame to this point in his career is his ability to contend at high-profile events. Contend, but not win though. Fleetwood has shown glimpses of elite talent in his two years on the PGA Tour, but he's yet to cross the finish line first. With that said, his numbers in his first two seasons have been very impressive. If he were to pick-up a victory at some point, which he will inevitably will, he could crack $5 million in earnings. With that said, it's tough to significantly improve on a number such as Fleetwood's, especially when you are playing less than 20 events. As such, he's not a great salary cap option this season, but he has a lot of upside in other formats.

18. Gary Woodland
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $5,690,965  

Prior to this past season, Woodland was well respected as a golfer, but he was never in the conversation of "best without a major," which made his win at the 2019 U.S. Open all the more unexpected. The days of random major winners are long gone and while Woodland had been a productive golfer for a decade on the PGA Tour, not many had him pegged for a major anytime soon. None the less, he did win a major and now he's in a different class. First time major winners can go in any direction however, and it's not clear which direction Woodland will head. One thing is clear though, his number is too high for salary cap consideration this season.

19. Adam Scott
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $4,084,541  

Scott has been one of the better golfers on the planet for nearly the past 20 years, but that's not to say that he's been consistent the entire time. Scott has sprinkled-in some real duds in that time, specifically over the past five seasons and you never really know what you are going to get from him. He was a solid salary cap selection prior to this past season, but after nearly doubling his earnings number this past season, he's now in the range where it's hard to consider him for salary cap purposes.

20. Jason Day
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,637,480  

With all of his health issues over the past decade, it's hard to believe that Day is still only 31. Though he remained fairly healthy this past season, he posted his worst numbers since 2012. It was only the second time in his past seven seasons that he failed to crack the $3 million mark on the PGA Tour. The good news is, the previous time he failed to crack $3 million, he followed that up with a $5 million season. While a $5 million season is not guaranteed next season, it's certainly possible. If nothing else, Day will makeback everything that you spend on him this season. He's a great salary cap pick this season as he has both a high floor and a high ceiling.

21. Chez Reavie
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,660,909  

After a couple ups and downs to start his PGA Tour career, Reavie seems to have found his footing. Reavie finished runner-up twice in 2018 on his way to a career-high in earnings and all he did this past season was top that number by almost $1 million. It helps when you throw a win in there, like Reavie did at the Travelers Championship, his first since his rookie season of 2008. Reavie has a very steady and reliable game, but with his lack of distance, his upside is limited. He shouldn't regress this season, but he's not likely to improve much either.

22. Sungjae Im
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,851,134  

Im entered this past season as one of the more highly-touted rookies in his class and although he didn't pick up a win, he met or exceeded all expectations. Im played 35 times this past season, which is a little insane and it's reasonable to think that he simply wore down at points during the season. That said, he made over $2.8 million in his rookie season and the future looks bright. As for his salary cap prospects, well that's a little murky. The bar is set pretty high, but he set that bar without the benefit of a win or a runner-up finish. If he gets a win or a runner-up this season, he could easily reach $4 million.

23. Jordan Spieth
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,124,192 

What a wild and ultimately frustrating season for Jordan Spieth. Spieth at times looked completely lost and at others, he actually looked pretty good. The problem with that however is that the times he looked good, were generally followed by rounds where he looked lost. He never found any tracking last season and although he did have a decent little run in August, the season as a whole was not a success. The jury is still out on how good Spieth can be, but it's safe to say that even if he's not as good as the multiple major winner that we saw a few years ago, he's certainly better than the guy we saw last season. As such, he's a must have in salary cap leagues this season.

24. Marc Leishman
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,886,577  

Leishman has been a productive player on the PGA Tour since day-one. In his first eight seasons on the PGA Tour, Leishman topped $1.4 million seven times, but it was his ninth season where he really left his mark. During that season, Leishman won twice and topped $5 million in earnings. The two seasons since, he's remained above the $3 million mark, but he's failed to reach the heights of his 2017 season. While it's possible that he gets back there at some point, another season in the $3 million range seems more likely this season.

25. Abraham Ancer
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,688,625  

Ancer ended the 2017-2018 with a flurry and he picked-up right where he left off to start the 2018-2019 season. When the calendar flipped to 2019, he lost a little steam, but he managed to play well here and there on his way to a career high in earnings. This past season was just his third on the PGA Tour and Ancer is yet to find a win, but it's only a matter of time. His number for this season is reasonable and he's definitely worth a look in salary cap formats as he should continue to improve this year.

26. Francesco Molinari
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,467,143  

Molinari had a breakout season in 2018, as he won his first major and earned over $5 million. After claiming the Arnold Palmer this past March, it looked like his 2018 was no fluke. As he held the lead in the final round of the Masters a month later, it was safe to wonder if he was taking control of the PGA Tour. His season pivoted at that point however as he went on to finish 5th at the Masters and never really regained his best form after that. Age really isn't a concern yet for Molinari as he'll turn 37 this season, but the fact that he only played 15 events on the PGA Tour last season is a little concerning. Molinari is legit, but his limited schedule combined with his high number from this past season makes him a questionable salary cap selection this season.

27. Kevin Kisner
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,489,144  

When you win a WGC event, it sets you up for a solid season, no matter how you play the rest of the way. Kisner won the match-play event early in the season and while he didn't play all that great the rest of the season, he still managed to clear over $3.4 million in earnings. The win at the match-play event will be tough to duplicate however as will such a huge check, which makes Kisner tough to draft in salary cap formats this season.

28. Tiger Woods
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,199,615  

When looking at Woods' season-long performance, you might say that it wasn't a great year, after all, he had only one top-10 from the middle of April through the end of the season, but it's what he did earlier in April that made this season a success. Woods captured his 15th major title and added another Green Jacket to his collections when he won the Masters in April. After that, well, it was a train wreck the rest of the way, but it certainly doesn't take away from what he accomplished at Augusta. His play and more importantly, his health were a concern the rest of the season and it will be tough to just forget all that occurred over the final four months of the season. It appears as though Woods still has a run or two in him each season, but his upside is limited. As such, even at this reasonable number, he's not a good salary cap option this season.

29. Brandt Snedeker
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,122,936  

Snedeker is no stranger to winning on the PGA Tour. He' s won nine times, including one near the end of the 2018 season. That he was able to make more than $3 million this past season without the benefit of a win was rather impressive. Snedeker went through a lull a couple years ago while battling an injury, but he seems to be almost back to where he was four seasons ago when he nearly cracked $4 million in earnings. With that said, his number is set just a bit too high entering this season for salary cap considerations as the PGA Tour continues to crank-out more talent each season.

30. Bubba Watson
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $3,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,558,014 

On the whole, there aren't many guys on the PGA Tour that have better numbers than Watson over the past decade. He's finished 3rd on the FedEx list on two occasions and he's topped $6 million in earning twice also. He's won 12 events in that time and he's won multiple majors. That's the good Bubba. The bad Bubba slips into elongated spells of poor play and seems to check out as often as he shows up. This past season we saw a lot of the bad Bubba. The question is, will good Bubba show up next season? Better yet, is it worth the risk to keep him off a salary cap team? He's such a bargain at this price, that he's about as close to a "must-have" as there is.

31. Louis Oosthuizen
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,539,183  

Amazingly, Oosthuizen has just one win on the PGA Tour. That win, of course, was the 2019 Open Championship, but since then, through 153 starts, he's failed to get back to the winner's circle. That's not to say that he's been unproductive in that time however. Oosthuizen has eight runner-ups and a handful of 3rd-place finishes, but he just can't seem to get over that final hurdle. Without the benefit of a win, there's no reason to think that Oosthuizen can significantly improve upon his number from this past season. He'll remain highly productive however, which means he has plenty of value in every other format.

32. Shane Lowry
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,490,098  

After three up-and-down seasons as the full-time member of the PGA Tour, few expected Lowry to have a break-out season this past year, but with a win at the Open Championship, that's exactly what happened. Lowry got off to a terrible start last season, but prior to the Open Championship, he showed signs that his game was rounding into form. Predictably, the major win was his last good showing of the season as he likely spent the rest of the year celebrating. Lowry will get it back together before next season starts, but he's set the bar too high in salary cap leagues. He'll have plenty of value in other formats however.

33. Billy Horschel
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,187,249  

Horschel has been on the PGA Tour full-time since 2013 and in all of that time, he's never really wavered. He's had some great seasons and some good seasons, but he's never had a bad season. He's been one of the more consistent golfers on the PGA Tour since joining seven seasons ago. His number entering this season is very reasonable and while he's not a "must-have", there definitely appears to be plenty of value here.

34. Phil Mickelson
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,440,221  

At 49, it's time to wonder how much time Mickelson has left on the PGA Tour. Actually, the same question has applied the past few years concerning Mickelson and each season has been unlike the previous. Mickelson has been a bit of a roller coaster the past five seasons, rotating decent seasons and really good seasons. He's coming off another decent season, which means he's due for a really good season, right? Actually, the risk might be too high this time around as you can't expect a guy who turns 50 this season to post an earnings number north of $4 million.

35. Keith Mitchell
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,405,360  

It took Mitchell some time to finally make it on the PGA Tour, but since joining two seasons ago, he's wasted no time in showing everyone what he's capable of. Mitchell earned over $1.6 million in his rookie season and finished 68th on the FedEx list. This past season, Mitchell took his game to the next level by winning the Honda Classic and taking in over $2.3 million in earnings. Mitchell set the bar pretty high last season, but he appears to have the game to go even higher on the money list this season. As such, he's coin-flip for the upcoming season. There are safer picks at this price, but Mitchell might have more upside than most in this range.

36. C.T. Pan
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,362,399 

Pan has improved incrementally in each of his first three seasons on the PGA Tour. This past seasons, Pan picked-up a win and a third-place finish on his way to over $2.3 million in earnings. While Pan continues to improve, the pace just isn't enough to justify a salary cap selection this season. With that said, Pan holds plenty of value in all other formats this season.

37. Jason Kokrak
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,330,212  

Perhaps the biggest surprise in the top-20 from this past season. While Kokrak ended up in the 14th spot on the FedEx list, his money would have put him beyond the 30th spot. With that said, this past season was Kokrak's best as he made the cut in 23 of 24 starts and banked over $2.3 million. Kokrak didn't really have many high-end finishes, but that's never been his game. He makes cuts, plays okay on the weekend and cashes decent-sized checks. Not exactly a great recipe for significant improvement though.

38. Charles Howell III
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $3,039,049  

This past season, Howell's 20th on the PGA Tour was the best of his career. That's correct, 20 years into his PGA Tour career, Howell finally cracked $3 million and on the way, picked up his first win since 2007. While the win certainly helped push Howell to new financial heights, there was plenty of good showings throughout the season. Howell did this past season, what he does every season, and that's play at a high level for long stretches throughout the season. Last year, he just happened to sprinkle in a win. As for this season, considering he went 13 seasons between wins, we can't project another win this year. Without a win, he won't be able to improve upon his numbers from last season this year.

39. Corey Conners
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,919,864  

Conners' rookie season on the PGA Tour was nothing special. He earned just under $800k and just missed the top-125 on the FedEx list. His second season though, this past season, was exceptional. Not only did he crack the top-125, he actually made it to the TOUR Championship. Conners did so by picking up his first win on the PGA Tour along with a runner-up and a third-place finish. He managed only one additional top-10 after that, but he did close with a nice stretch during the FedEx playoffs. Conners might be the real deal, but there are a lot of guys on the PGA Tour just waiting to do this season, what he did last season. The odds of Conners improving upon his numbers from last season are not high.

40. Sung Kang
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,801,650  

Kang had a decent rookie season in 2016, followed by a strong sophomore campaign, but his third season left a lot to be desired. That season however put him in a good spot for a bounce-back this past season and bounce-back he did. Kang picked-up his first PGA Tour victory this past season and set a career high in earnings. While he looks like the real deal, he simply set the bar too high this past season for salary cap purposes.

41. Andrew Putnam
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,439,137  

It's not often that a guy misses more cuts than he makes in the rookie season, earns less than $300k and finishes well outside the top-125 and then comes back the next year and makes over $2 million. That's how Putnam's first two years went on the PGA Tour and year three was even better than year two. With three years under his belt, and two solid seasons already, it's starting to look like his rookie season was just a fluke. Even is that is the case though, it will be hard to show a significant improvement on his numbers from this past season. Expect Putnam to hold steady this upcoming season.

42. Kevin Na
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,257,309  

Since Na first broke the $2 million barrier in 2009, he's fallen below just once when playing a full PGA Tour season. He again eclipsed that mark last season while only playing 19 events. Na generally plays around 26 events per season, which means he can definitely improve upon his number from this past season, but his upside might not be high enough. Na has twice posted a number north of $3.4 million, but he's only managed that twice in the past 10 years. He's more likely to wind up in the mid-$2 million range next season, which means he's not a great salary cap option.

43. Si Woo Kim
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,191,808  

After years of setting the bar too high, Kim's price for the upcoming season is actually within a reasonable range for salary cap purposes. That's not to say that he's a great pick for the upcoming season, but his number of just over $2 million is his lowest in four seasons on the PGA Tour. He has already posted numbers of $3 million+ two times in his short time on the PGA Tour, so a jump of 50% this season is certainly possible. It's a sizeable investment at over $2 million, but Kim has been pretty reliable in his four years on the PGA Tour and his upside is pretty high.

44. Byeong-Hun An
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,990,033  

An performed well during his rookie season of 2017, as he carded three top-10s and over $1 million in earnings. An's sophomore season was much better as he finished runner-up on two occasions and topped $2.5 million in earnings. This past season, An's third was decent, but he certainly didn't build upon his success from the previous season. An looks like the real deal though and his slight set back last season puts him in a good spot for a bounce-back this season.

45. Cameron Smith
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,504,820  

Smith struggled out of the gate in his rookie in 2016, but he quickly turned it around the following season when he earned his first victory and over $2 million. He followed that up with an even better season in 2018 as he picked-up three 3rd-place finishes and over $3 million in earnings. It looked like he was trending upward heading into this past season, but something went wrong. Smith's production fell off dramatically this past season, but it's too early to panic. Smith is just 25 and he has loads of talent. He's a steal at this price in salary cap leagues and should be on a lot of roster this season.

46. Viktor Hovland — R
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $678,035 

Hovland doesn't need much of an introduction after a T12 at the U.S. Open in June preceded four consecutive finishes of T16 or better to end the regular season, culminating with a solo-fourth at the Wyndham Championship. The Oklahoma State product failed to record a win like his fellow Class of '19 compadres, Matthew Wolff and Collin Morikawa, but expect Hovland to land in the winner's circle soon enough. He gained at least 8.4 strokes from tee to green throughout his last three starts on the PGA Tour before securing his card with results of T11-T2 at the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. 

47. Kevin Tway
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,300,050  

Tway started last season on a high note as he won the first event on the fall schedule. He played well throughout fall, but when the calendar turned to 2019, his game went south in a hurry. He recovered a little by the end of the season, but he never showed that fall form again. Regardless, it was a nice season for Tway as he picked up his first PGA Tour win and topped $2 million for the first time. Tway should be a productive player this seaso, but it's hard to imagine him going much better than he did last season. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this season, but he holds plenty of value in other formats.

48. Matthew Fitzpatrick — I
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,553,750 

Fitzpatrick finished atop the non-member points list last season with 665, equivalent to 71st on the FedEx list to qualify for the PGA Tour this season for the first time. The Englishman seems poised for a big season.  He only missed one cut last season in stroke-play events and had some high finishes, including a solo second at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and T4 at WGC-FedEx St. Jude.  Fitzpatrick will be one to pay close attention to at the majors — he was T12 in 2019 and 2018 at the U.S. Open. He is a bit shorter off the tee but very accurate, and his putter tends to keep him in the hunt. 

49. Matt Wallace — I
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,350,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,267,400

Wallace only missed two cuts in 12 PGA Tour events last season, his highest finish coming at the  PGA Championship where he was T3. He also had a good week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, finishing T6. All told, he earned 461 non-member points for the equivalent of 105th place on the FedEx to earn his first PGA Tour card. The Englishman's season on the European Tour wasn't too shabby either, as he had three T3s. Wallace has shown he can hang with the big dogs in the big events.  He should have no problem competing each time out this season should he choose to play a heavy load of PGA events rather than Euro events. This could be a breakout year for the 29-year-old Englishman.  Keep an eye on Wallace, especially when the stakes are high, as this could be a breakout season for the 29-year-old.

50. Ryan Palmer
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,873,316  

Palmer joined the PGA Tour in 2004 and for the most part, he's been a top-100 player. Entering this past season however, Palmer's looked like it might be fading. In the two previous seasons, Palmer had just one top-3 and his winless streak had stretched to eight years. Then, out of nowhere, at the age of 42, Palmer had one of his best seasons on the PGA Tour. Palmer broke that winless streak, posted six top-10s and earned over $2.8 million. It was a great season, but one he's not likely to replicate this season.

51. Scott Piercy
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,679,915  

Piercy has won four times on the PGA Tour and while he didn't win this past season, he did pick-up a runner-up and a third-place finish on his way to over $2.6 million in earnings. In his previous two seasons, Piercy failed to crack the $2 million mark, but the two seasons prior, he easily eclipsed that mark. 10 seasons into his career and it's still not clear just how good Piercy is. One thing is clear though, at his current price, he's not a good salary cap option as he's never cracked $3 million in earnings for one season.

52. Adam Hadwin
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,039,012  

Hadwin has been on the PGA Tour for five seasons and it's still not clear where he belongs. He started his career with a couple decent but unspectacular seasons. His third season however was spectacular as he picked-up his first win on the PGA Tour and over $3 million in earnings. His following season was better than his first two season, but far off the pace he set in season three. This past season was better than the previous, but again, not close to his numbers from his best season. At this point, it's probably best to take a wait and see approach on Hadwin as his number is too high to take a chance on.

53. Doc Redman — I
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,003,290

Redman is from North Carolina but earned his first PGA Tour card thanks to his work last season on Canada's Mackenzie Tour.  He made four of six cuts at PGA Tour events last year and finished as high as solo-second at Rocket Morgage Classic, earning 400 non-member points to finish the equivalent of 123rd on the FedEx list. Redman has a good all-around game. He is long and accurate off the tee and is precise with irons. Redman turns just 22 in late December but has already provided excitement with great results. If he can build off what he has already accomplished, this could be a big season for him with high finishes and, before long, a win. 

54. Lucas Glover
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,613,965  

Entering this past season, Glover had failed to crack $1 million in earnings in six of his seven previous seasons. It wasn't outrageous to think that maybe his best days were behind him, but then he went out and posted his second-highest earnings number in his 16-year career on the PGA Tour. Glover failed to record any high-end finishes this past season, but he did post seven top-10s and 16 top-25s. While it was a great season, the odds of Glover duplicating that production this season seem slim. Glover will need more high-end finishes this season to significantly improve on his numbers from last season, but he's only posted just one top-3 finish in the past eight seasons.

55. J.T. Poston
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,461,215  

Poston spent the better part of his first two years on the PGA Tour spinning his wheels as he never was able to get much going. That changed this past season, when after months of again spinning his wheels, he broke through at the Wyndham Championship. That win nearly catapulted him into the TOUR Championship, but he missed-out by two spots. It's tough to get a read on Poston as he didn't show much prior to his win late last season, and he has just six top-10s in three seasons on the PGA Tour. The safe play is to avoid him altogether in salary cap formats. He has some value in other formats, but he'll probably regress a bit next season.

56. J.B. Holmes
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,147,065  

Holmes has gone from young up and comer, to underperformer, to surgery on his brain, to great comeback story, to new career heights, to, well, now he's kind of settled-in as a somewhat high-performer and that might be where he stays for the foreseeable future. Holmes picked-up his first win since 2015 this past season, which boosted him over the $2 million mark for the first time since 2015, but it looks like he might not have that extra gear anymore. At 37, Holmes still has some good years left in him, but he's been through a lot physically and you never know when the game will start to fade.

57. Joel Dahmen
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,949,958  

Dahmen had a quiet, yet productive rookie season two years ago and last year, he had another quiet, yet productive season. Dahmen posted a runner-up finish in each of his first two seasons on the PGA Tour, yet he managed to bank about $400k more this past season than he did in his rookie season. In other words, he improved from year-one to year-two. Considering year-one was pretty solid, it was no small feat to significantly improve upon it. The question is though, can he continue this rise? At this price, he's a risky play in salary cap formats, but there are definitely signs that he could have some value this season.

58. Rafa Cabrera Bello
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,926,935  

Cabrera Bello joined the PGA Tour in 2017 and in his three full seasons on the PGA Tour, he's been very productive. He hasn't taken the next step in his game in that time, but he hasn't regressed either. He's settled-in to a cushy spot on the money list between spots 50 and 80 and there's no indication that this season will end any differently. With that in mind, his price is too high in salary cap formats, but he obviously has value in every other format.

59. Cameron Champ
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,695,748  

It didn't take Champ long to make his mark on the PGA Tour, but when the calendar turned to 2019, he all but disappeared. Champ won the Sanderson Farms Championship in October of 2018, and he also carded two additional top-10s before the end of the year, but 2019 was a disaster. Champ failed to post a single top-10 in 2019 and was only able to finish inside the top-25 twice. There is a bright side to all of this however. First, one of those top-25s from 2019 came in his final start, at the Northern Trust. Second, even with a win on his resume, his price is still reasonable heading into this season.

60. Joaquin Niemann
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,434,519  

After earning over $1.2 million in just 12 starts as a non-member in 2018, Niemann had plenty of momentum heading into this past season, but as the new season began, Niemann lost his way. He posted a top-10 in the fall portion of the season, but it wasn't until late-June that he actually rediscovered his form from 2018. During a six-week stretch leading into the FedEx playoffs, Niemann carded three top-10s and an additional pair of top-25s. It was all that was needed to reaffirm that this kid is going to be pretty good. At this price, Niemann has a lot of value in salary cap leagues this season.

61. Chesson Hadley
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,405,632 

Hadley has played well in four of his five full seasons on the PGA Tour. His 2018 season was easily his best as he carded seven top-10s and earned over $2.7 million. Though he played well enough to slip comfortably inside the top-125 last season, he didn't exactly build on the momentum from the previous season. Hadley is an intriguing salary cap option this season as he's pretty reliable when he plays a full schedule and he does have much more upside than he showed last season.

62. Matthew Wolff
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,390,433  

After winning the 3M Open this past July, Wolff not only gained immediate membership to the PGA Tour, but he also earned a spot in the FedEx playoffs. He failed to make it past the first weekend, but that's about the only time he failed last season. Wolff was a highly-touted mid season call-up, if you will, as he turned pro midway through the season, but he along with a few other guys that turned pro in the middle of the season, did not play like rookies. Wolff's win also turned his money earned last season into official earnings, which is important for those in salary cap leagues as he now has a "number" and that number makes him a very appealing option.

63. Rory Sabbatini
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,382,298  

The resurgence of Sabbatini was one of the more surprising stories from this past season. Sabatini earned over $2 million this past season, something he hadn't accomplished since 2011. Actually, he never came close to that mark in the seven seasons in-between. While it was a great story, the reality is, Sabbatini turns 44 this season and he probably can't play any better this season than he did last season.

64. Ian Poulter
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,162,306  

Most golfers start to slow down when they near the age of 40, but Poulter has actually played some of his best golf since turning 40 about three years ago. In that time, Poulter has posted three consecutive seasons of $2 million or more in earnings and his lowest finish on the FedEx list was 60th. That's the good news, the bad news is, he's turning 44 this season and he has to slow down at some point. Even if he can put off the inevitable drop in production, he'll have a tough time doing much better than what he did this past season.

65. Keegan Bradley
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,902,797  

Bradley's had two distinct careers on the PGA Tour. The first, which occurred during his first four seasons on the PGA Tour, resulted in trips to the TOUR Championship each year. The three seasons that followed resulted in zero trips to the TOUR Championship. A win late in the 2017-2018 season looked to be the spark needed to regain his old form, but the momentum from that win did not carry over to this past season. Bradley played well last season, but outside of a random win here or there, he might just be a guy who'll end up outside the top-30 each season.

66. Sergio Garcia
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,793,027  

Garcia has 10 wins on the PGA Tour, none bigger than his line major win at the Masters a couple years ago, but that win seems to have changed him for worse. Not surprisingly, Garcia struggled the year after his life-changing win at the Masters, but he also struggled this past season as well and that was not expected. More concerning were his antics when playing poorly. Garcia has been caught damaging courses after poor shots and it's not a good look. It all adds to the mystery that is Garcia. Will he ever regain his old form? It's hard to say, but all things considered, it not likely that he competes at an elite level again. Garcia will remain productive this season, but he's not elite any longer.

67. Collin Morikawa
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,754,890  

Morikawa was one of a handful of golfers that turned pro in the middle of the season that had a lot of success. In fact, Morikawa was the most successful of that bunch as he not only picked-up his first win, but he also managed a runner-up and a T4 in just nine starts. His win did come at an opposite-field event, but his runner-up came at the 3M and there was plenty of fire power in that field. Morikawa has plenty of game and he'll continue to improve, but he might not be a great option in salary cap formats this season. It's one thing to have success during a short time span when there are no expectations. It's another when you are a full member and suddenly it's not just a handful of tournaments, it's a lifestyle.

68. Emiliano Grillo
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,752,114  

Grillo set the bar pretty high as a rookie in 2013 as he picked-up an win and a runner-up finish on his way to over $3.3 million in earnings. He predictably fell-off a bit the following season, but bounced-back quite nicely in his third season. This past season, his fourth, Grillo's game again fell-off. It wasn't a dramatic drop in production, but it didn't exactly clear-up his situation. Grillo appears to have the potential to be a 2nd-tier guy, but his consistency is lacking. He's worth a look in salary cap formats, but he's no better than a coin flip.

69. Jhonattan Vegas
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,566,910  

Vegas picked up his first victory on the PGA Tour in 2011 and while he had his moment in the three years that followed, he wasn't often a factor. The turn-around came in 2016, when he picked-up win number two and cracked the $2 million barrier for the first time. He backed that up with another win the following year and it looked like this might becoming the norm. The past two years however, haven't been as productive. He's coming off a decent season, but he obviously can do better. As such, he should get a look in salary cap formats.

70. Harold Varner III
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,553,149  

Varner's claim to fame during the 2018-2019 season will likely end up being his placement in the final group on Sunday at the PGA Championship. Things certainly didn't turn out as he'd hoped that day, but the season as a whole was pretty solid. Varner has been a decent player since joining the PGA Tour in 2016, but he's rarely been spectacular. There does appear to be something there however, which puts him in the class of "those to consider" when putting a salary cap team together this season.

71. Henrik Stenson
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,397,370  

Was 2019 the start of Stenson's inevitable downfall? Stenson's game showed a slight decline in the two seasons prior to this past seasons, but it was a dramatic decline. Last season however, Stenson struggled for long stretches and rarely looked like the player we've become accustomed to. Stenson turned 43 this past season and it's hard to imagine his game improving much at this point. With that said, his number is more than reasonable for salary cap purposes.

72. Brian Harman
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,342,778  

Eight years into his PGA Tour career and it's still difficult to figure out Harman. He's not the guy who made just over $900k in 2013, but he's also not the guy who won over $4 million in 2017. This past season, was possibly his worst in the past six years, but with that, there's some value heading into this season. It's hard to imagine that Harman can get close to his production from 2017, but $2 million is certainly not out of the question.

73. Russell Henley
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,133,773  

Unless you are an elite golfer, any season that ends with your PGA Tour card for the following season is a good one. It that sense, Henley has had seven good seasons on the PGA Tour. However, he set the bar pretty high by topping the $2 million mark his first three seasons on the PGA Tour and he further extended it three season ago when he topped $3.4 million. With a number just over $1.1 million, Henley is not quite a "must-have," but he should be given strong consideration in salary cap formats this season.

74. Kyle Stanley
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,117,604  

If anyone tells you they have Stanley figured, you can rest assured that they are lying. Stanley had a good start to his PGA Tour career nine seasons ago with three solid seasons, then the bottom fell out. After a terrible three-year stretch, Stanley rebounded in-style with consecutive $3+ million seasons and then, came last season. While the bottom didn't fall out, he certainly fell well short of the pace he set the two years prior. It's hard to know where he goes from here, but the upside is certainly there and the price is reasonable.

75. Aaron Wise
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,052,507  

Wise came onto the PGA Tour guns a blazin' last season as he picked up a win and a runner-up on his way to over $3.4 million in earnings. Wise certainly looked the part of the "next big thing", but his follow-up season left a lot to be desired. It's not unheard of for a golfer to have a strong rookie season and then fall into a slump the following year, so there's no reason to panic here. In fact, there's opportunity for salary cap purposes and Wise's earnings number is more than reasonable for the upcoming season.

76. Scottie Scheffler — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $139,871  

Prior to nabbing a victory at the first leg of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals in mid-August, Scheffler had already secured his PGA Tour card for the upcoming season by winning the Evans Scholars Invitational as the cherry on top of a stretch on the KFT that included results of 2-5-T7-2-Win beginning with late March's Savannah Golf Championship. He'll enjoy rookie status on the PGA Tour throughout the 2019-20 campaign, but the former Longhorn standout already has major tournament experience, having teed it up at three U.S. Opens as he earned Low Amateur honors at the 2017 edition. Scheffler missed the cut at the 2019 U.S. Open, but he notched a top-20 finish at the Valero Texas Open and collected nearly $150k despite making only four starts at the PGA Tour level. On the KFT, he ranked fifth in GIR percentage, 10th in putting average and led his peers in birdie average.

77. Jim Furyk
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,669,938  

After a couple down seasons, one of which was spent preparing to be the captain of the Ryder Cup team, it wasn't much of a surprise to see Furyk play better this past season. What was a surprise was the level of play Furyk managed. Furyk made the cut in 15 of 20 starts, had eight top-25s, three top-10s and one runner-up finish. Furyk is only five seasons removed from a season in which he nearly earned $6 million, but at the age of 49, it's hard to imagine he could do any better than the $2.6 million he made last season. As such, he's an easy pass in salary cap formats this season.

78. Ryan Moore
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,838,788  

There was a time when Moore appeared destined to become an elite player on the PGA Tour and while he spent several years inside the top-30, he never quite met the heightened expectations. In recent years, Moore has slid from top-30 status to top-60 status. Considering Moore hasn't topped $2 million in earnings since 2016, Moore's prospects as a salary cap target this season are not great. He'll remain productive again this season and likely end up around the 60th spot on the FedEx list, but his days of earning over $3 million appear to be a thing of the past.

79. Kiradech Aphibarnrat
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,630,073  

After years of popping up here and there on the PGA Tour, Aphibarnrat decided to go full-time this past season and it was certainly a success. It's hard to gauge guys like Aphibarnrat who seems to have access to all the big events, yet rarely play on the PGA Tour otherwise. There's an inflated sense of worth with guys like that because they get to play on the biggest stage. It's only when they decide to play full-time on the PGA Tour that we get an idea of just how good they are. In this case, Aphibarnrat proved he can hold his own, but his upside is still in question.

80. Tyrrell Hatton
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,517,396  

Hatton is one of the better golfers from Europe, but like many of his predecessors, he's yet to produce on the PGA Tour like he had on the European Tour. That's not to say that his stint on this side of the pond has been a failure though. He's played well in his two seasons on the PGA Tour, but more is expected from him. The issue for Hatton, like many Euros, is the number of events he plays each season. He's played only 16 in each of the past two season and while they are generally bigger events, unless he breaks through at one of them, he'll have a hard time significantly increasing upon his number from last season.

81. Troy Merritt
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,531,143  

Merritt might be the most obscure two-time winner on the PGA Tour. He picked-up his first win on the PGA Tour in 2015 and backed that up with another win 2018. Though he didn't win this past season, he had a fairly productive season. Merritt's best finish was a runner-up at the Barracuda Championship and he had a total of four top-10s. His consistency improved, but there's still a question of whether he can string together high-end performances. His ceiling is well above where he ended up last season, but he's still probably too pricey for salary cap purposes.

82. Charley Hoffman
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,468,855  

Hoffman has been a fixture on the PGA Tour since he first joined in 2006. In that time, he's never lost his card and he's one of only a few members that have taken part in every FedEx playoff. He's had some great seasons in the past five years, but his last two have been less than stellar. Hoffman turned 42 last season and it's hard to ignore that his recent slide start as he turned 40. Hoffman will still produce at a certain level for the next few years, he won't fall off a cliff, but he also won't regain his old form either.

83. Wyndham Clark
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,278,721  

Clark is another one of the rookies last season that was overshadowed by the guys that turned professional in the middle of the season, but Clark had a very productive first-go on the PGA Tour. Though he failed to have any high-end finishes, he did card three top-10s along with seven top-25s. He also made the cut in 17 of his 24 starts. Clark laid a solid foundation for the upcoming season as he showed steady progress throughout. His prospect for this season are promising as if he can sprinkle in a couple high-end finishes, he could easily double his output from last season.

84. Max Homa
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,063,606  

Perhaps no victory was more unexpected last season than Homa's, who captured the Wells Fargo Championship in May. Homa's first go-round on the PGA Tour came in 2015, and things did not go as planned. Homa missed more cuts than he made and ended the season with less than $400k in earnings. In limited action the following season, Homa only managed $18k in earnings. Things weren't looking much better this past season until his victory in May, which is what made that win so surprising. Considering Homa has just one year of success under his belt on the PGA Tour, the bar is simply set too high for salary cap purposes this season.

85. Graeme McDowell
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,671,523  

McDowell's results in the years leading up to this past season had a lot of people wondering if this was the beginning of the end for McDowell, but a win at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship flipped the narrative on McDowell. Not only did he pick up his first win since 2016, but he also carded two additional top-10s and seven top-25s in total. Not the production we expected after he broke through with a U.S. Open win a while ago, but still, better than what we'd seen from him in recent years. As far as a total resurgence, that doesn't look imminent, but a spot safely inside the top-125 is reasonable for the upcoming season.

86. Kevin Streelman
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,588,881  

There was a point, after the 2013 season, that it looked like Streelman was about to take his game to the next level, but after posting an earnings number of over $3 million that season, he's failed to take the next step. His game hasn't really fallen-off in the years since, but he has settled-in to a pocket between $1.3 and $1.6 million in earnings. Streelman turned 40 last season and it's likely that his best days are being him. An imminent drop-off isn't likely, but neither is a big bump.

87. Danny Lee
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,524,126  

Lee's 2018-2019 season was much like his previous three seasons on the PGA Tour. He got hot for short stretches and very cold for others. In-between, not a whole lot to write home about. Lee has always been one of the more streaky guys on the PGA Tour and that looks to continue into the foreseeable future. Lee has had one season on the PGA Tour where he had much longer hot streaks than cold streaks, but as we get further away from that season, it's starting to look more and more like an aberration.

88. J.J. Spaun
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,205,977  

After a decent rookie campaign and a strong sophomore campaign, all signs were pointing to a big third season for Spaun, but it never materialized. Spaun drastically improved his cuts-made percentage, but he lacked the high-end finishes of his sophomore season. The culprit last season was his game off the tee, where he dropped over 60-spots in strokes gained off the tee from the previous season. If he can fix that issue, he can get back on track. With that in mind, he's worth a look in salary cap leagues this season.

89. Talor Gooch
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,067,089  

Gooch is a perfect example of why you shouldn't write-off anyone that didn't finish in the top-125 the previous season. As a rookie, Gooch finished 139th on the FedEx list, but he retains partial privileges by staying inside the top-150. He parlayed his limited amount of starts (16) into over $1 million in earnings and full privileges for the upcoming season. Gooch appears to have some potential and should be given consideration as a salary cap selection this season.

90. Mackenzie Hughes
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,022,081  

Hughes had a strong start to his PGA Tour career with a win and over $2.3 million in earnings during his rookie season, but something happened during his Sophomore season as he managed just over $500k in earnings. Perhaps the specter of his exemption running out last season lit a fire underneath him because his play definitely improved. It didn't improve enough to make him a "must-have" for salary cap purposes, but he should definitely be considered in that format.

91. Alex Noren — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $913,446 

Noren was one of the biggest disappointments of the 2018-19 season. In his first year as a member on the PGA Tour in the 2017-18 season, the Swede finished 43rd in the final FedExCup stnadings with three top-three finishes and 10 top-25s. Last year he went 18 starts on the PGA Tour without a single top-10 and just five top-25s. Noren is a 10-time European Tour winner, so of all those who were relegated to conditional status, he has the biggest upside considering his status in the OWGR and ability to get into the more prestigeous events.

92. Andrew Landry
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $887,405  

Landry's first season on the PGA Tour was less than fruitful, but he put that memory to rest the following season when he picked up his first PGA Tour victory and over $2.5 million in earnings. Heading into this past season, it was tough to tell which was the real Landry though as he had only two seasons under his belt and they couldn't have been more contrasting. Unfortunately, this past season did not settle the matter. The good news is, the bar was set low last season and we know his upside is over $2.5 million, all of which make him a decent salary cap selection this season.

93. Nate Lashley
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $2,030,287  

Lashley's story is well documented. He went through more than any one person should go through yet he somehow managed to reach the pinnacle of his profession by winning on the PGA Tour. His win came out of nowhere as at the age of 36, he was relatively unknown on the PGA Tour. Though he obviously has a lot of fight in him, it's hard to imagine that he can play any better than he did last season. At least, it's hard to imagine him playing significantly better than he did this past season.

94. Luke List
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,391,408 

List's rookie season on the PGA Tour was 2013, but he didn't really make his presence known until 2017, when he picked-up a runner-up finish and over $1.8 million in earnings. Not much was known about List at the time and it was a reasonable assumption that he was a young guy just getting started, but that wasn't the cases. List was already in his 30s when he had his break through and he starts this season at the age of 34. There's no reason to think he'll regress anytime soon, but we've probably seen the best we are going to see out of him already.

95. Danny Willett
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,286,737  

Willett's golf life after his surprise Masters victory three years ago was an unmitigated disaster and the golfing world was left to wonder if he'd ever find his game again. After two years of miserable play, Willett actually found his way back last season. He's still got a lot of work to do to get back to the heights of a major champion, but there are plenty of signs that point to a continued resurgence. Willett is worth a look in salary cap leagues, but his upside still seems a bit limited at this point.

96. Adam Schenk
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,257,158 

Schenk was a rookie in 2017, but he failed to crack the top-125 or even the top-150. He managed to get some starts early in the fall portion of the season last year though and took full advantage. A couple top-20s led to more starts, which led to more success. By the end of the season, Schenk had three top-10s in all and nearly $1.2 million in earnings. Schenk had plenty of success against softer fields, but he also played well in spots against stronger fields. Schenk might have another gear, but obviously we haven't seen it yet. He's worth a look in salary cap leagues, but there are probably better options at this price.

97. Russell Knox
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,132,825  

Since rejoining the PGA Tour in 2014, Knox has been a very productive player on the PGA Tour. He's finished inside the top-100 on the FedEx list in five of the past six seasons and he's earned over $1 million in each of the past six seasons. The aberration was his 2016 season when he won twice and nearly cracked $5 million in earnings. At that point, it looked like he was about to up his game going forward, but in the three seasons since, he hasn't come close to matching those numbers. He still holds a bit of value in salary cap formats however because the upside is very high.

98. Daniel Berger — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $742,340 

Berger was playing catch up for most of the season after he was forced to miss the entire fall portion of the schedule due to a wrist injury. The Florida State product made 15-of-20 cuts last season with a runner-up and three other top-25s. After making the TOUR Championship his first three seasons on the PGA Tour, Berger will be motivated to get back to East Lake. Last season was the first season he was not ranked inside the top-25 on tour in SG: Approach, so expect him to improve greatly on No. 115 in SG: Approach and 151st in GIR percentage. He will be a solid salary cap option next season.

99. Vaughn Taylor
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,300,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,723,910  

Taylor has played on the PGA Tour for the better part of the past two decades and while he's managed to win three times, he's never cracked $2 million in earnings in any one season. Part of that is due to when he posted his first two wins, in 2004 and 2005, when wins weren't worth as much, but mostly it speaks to Taylor's inability to string together good performances. He's always been a guy who pops up here and there, but he's never shown a lot of consistency...until this past season when he earned his money by carding four top-10s and seven top-25s. While Taylor may have figured something out in his game that allows for more consistency, at 43 years-old, his upside is all but gone.

100. Adam Long
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,300,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,648,007  

Although they were outshined by the mid-season rookie class this past season, the crop of rookies that began the 2018-2019 was actually pretty productive last season. Long was one of those rookies and although he missed a lot of cuts, he picked-up a win at the Desert Classic in January, which was more than enough to get him into the FedEx playoffs. It's not uncommon to see a rookie win early in the year and then get complacent and coast through the rest of the season. We can't be sure Long got complacent, but he certainly coasted throughout the remainder of the season. He'll obviously have to sharpen his game at the start of this season if he's to take the next step. For now, Long is too inconsistent to be of value in a salary cap league.

101. Branden Grace
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,300,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,373,185 

Grace's first official season on the PGA Tour was a rousing success. During the 2016 season, Grace picked-up his first victory on the PGA Tour and fell just short of $3 million in earnings. In the three years since, he's been remarkably consistent, but he's failed to even come close to the numbers that he posted during his rookie season. Grace typically plays around 20 events on the PGA Tour each season, which makes it difficult to see a big bump unless he wins somewhere along the line. It's tough to forecast a win from someone who is typically in this range on the FedEx list, which means he's not a great salary cap option this season.

102. Grayson Murray — F
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,300,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $125,511 

A back injury kept Murray sidelined from April's Valero Texas Open through the end of the regular season, but he managed to return on the Korn Ferry Tour in early June when he tied for second at the Rex Hospital Open. Playing against lesser competition became quite a positive for Murray throughout the remainder of the summer as he went on to finish T23-T11-T7 during the KFT Finals, retaining his card for the 2019-20 season. Murray has given fantasy owners headaches in the past with his numerous withdrawals for seemingly minor injuries, but his driving distance and birdie average metrics are upside indicators to combat the risk.

103. Patton Kizzire
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,250,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $995,341  

After two decent seasons to start his PGA Tour career, Kizzire shocked the golfing world when he picked up two wins early in the 2018 season. After that, he failed to accomplish much during that season or the next. With three decent seasons under his belt and just one spectacular season, it's reasonable to think that his two-win season was an aberration. The upside is obviously there. but his chances of tapping into the upside remain remote.

104. Jason Dufner — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,250,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $926,365  

Dufner has been fixture on the PGA Tour for the majority of the decade, but last season was his worst since 2008. In 25 starts, the Auburn product made just 13 cuts and had only four top-25s. Dufner has been known as a great ball striker throughout his career, and he still was last seaosn despite some poor results. He ranked 32nd in driving accuracy and sixth in GIR percentage. His age (42) is concerning, but he is still capable of being a player that can help out fantasy rosters if he can become more consistent on the greens.

105. Matt Every
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,413,149  

There are few guys on the PGA Tour that are harder to predict than Every. He picked-up victories in 2014 and 2015 and then failed to crack $400k in earnings in each of the following three seasons. Just when we thought he might be done, he goes out and earns over $1.4 million in just 15 starts this past season. With a realistic upside of around $2.0 million and a very inconsistent track record, Every is not a good salary cap target this season. He may be worth a flyer in draft leagues though as he's proven he can win on the PGA Tour.

106. Brian Stuard
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,320,637  

Stuard is the proverbial workhorse on the PGA Tour. He plays a ton, rarely contends, but generally ends up in the top-125 at the of the season. Stuard has won on the PGA Tour, but even in that season, he could only manage a 76th-place finish on the points list. He finished in that same range this past season, even without the benefit of a win. Stuard seems destined to be somewhere in the 75-100 range on the points list every season, which is great for him, but bad for those looking for value in a salary cap format.

107. Michael Thompson
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,307,816  

Thompson was fairly productive in his first four years on the PGA Tour, securing his card at the end of each of those four seasons. His next four seasons weren't nearly as productive as he failed to crack the top-125 during any of those seasons. This past season was by far his best in the past five years, but he probably set the bar too high for salary cap purposes. Thompson has rarely flashed much upside over the past decade and as such, high price is too high for this season.

108. Sam Burns
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,117,312  

Burns had a solid, yet not quite spectacular rookie season on the PGA Tour this past year. He earned over $1 million, carded six top-10s and most importantly, secured his card for the upcoming season. His best finish came in the fall however and while he did post six top-10s, he was more of a hit or miss type of guy last season. There could be something there, but it's too early too tell. It's probably best to pass on Burns this season in salary cap formats.

109. Sam Ryder
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,060,735  

Ryder's rookie season, two seasons ago, was a success. He managed to post a runner-up finish, earned over $1 million and secured his PGA Tour card for the following season. His Sophomore effort, was nearly identical. His best finish last year was a 3rd-place finish, but he again topped $1 million and secured his card for the following year. Ryder is young and he could just be ramping-up to something big, but to this point, we haven't seen a lot to indicate that a big jump is imminent.

110. Patrick Rodgers
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,200,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,046,838  

Rodgers first appeared on the PGA Tour as a non-member in 2015 and by the time the season was over, he had earned enough points to gain full membership for the following season. Since then, he's remained comfortably inside the top-125 each season and he's even shown signs of improvement from year to year. He had a set back last season when he was forced to sit out four months due to a hand injury. Even with the missed time, he finished safely inside the top-125. Rodgers should continue to improve this season, but his upside is still in question.

111. Bud Cauley
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,090,018  

The hype surrounding Cauley was massive when he first entered the PGA Tour in 2012, but after yet another lackluster season, it might be time to just accept him for what he is -- a good golfer, who is never going to be elite. Cauley has played on the PGA Tour for the better part of the past seven seasons and he's yet to post a win or a runner-up finish. Cauley simply doesn't have the upside that it looked like he had some seven or eight years ago. He's pretty reliable, which is fine for formats outside of salary caps, but obviously he's not an option in salary cap leagues.

112. Scott Stallings
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,080,451  

Stallings has spent the past eight seasons on the PGA Tour trying to reach the heights of his rookie season, but he's been unable to match the $1.9 million in earnings that he posted in 2011. That's not to say that he's played poorly over the past eight years, in fact, he's won twice since his rookie season, but overall, he hasn't shown the ability to play well for long stretches. Stallings made a concerted effort to get into better physical shape last season, but he hasn't reaped any benefits yet. Stallings has spent the past five seasons around or under the $1 million mark and that's likely where he'll end up this season.

113. Cameron Tringale
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,049,106 

At 31, Tringale's best years could be ahead of him, but to this point in his career, he seems to have peaked about five years ago. Though he was unable to find a victory during that span, he was able to post three runner-ups. The result was about $5 million in earnings over three seasons. Since then, he's had a couple poor seasons and one decent season. That decent season came last year and although he's trending upward, the upside just isn't there for salary cap purposes.

114. Brice Garnett
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,019,594  

Garnett has spent four full seasons on the PGA Tour with mixed results. His two best seasons have come in the past two years, but he doesn't appear to have that extra gear that will allow for a big jump in production. At 35 years-old, he can certainly maintain his current level for a while, but his upside is likely limited. As such, he's not a good option in salary cap leagues this season.

115. Ryan Armour
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $955,468  

After years of struggling to stay inside the top-125 each season, Armour broke-out big time in 2018 when he earned over $2.4million and picked-up his first PGA Tour victory. After five seasons of zero upside, Armour suddenly showed a side that most didn't know existed. Tough he retained his card last season, it was certainly a let-down after what he had accomplished the year prior. There's no way to tell which direction he goes this season, but it's safe to say that he's not worth a salary cap pick this year as he hasn't shown any consistency to this point in his career.

116. Denny McCarthy
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $925,156 

McCarthy was a rookie in 2018 and while he wasn't able to retain his card for this past season, he played well enough to earn partial privileges. He parlayed his partial status into 27 starts last season, which resulted in enough points to earn full status for this upcoming season. McCarthy seems to be getting incrementally better, but the progress is slow. He has only three top-10s in 49 starts on the PGA Tour. It's a little too early to take a chance on McCarthy as a salary cap option this season.

117. Robert Streb — F
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $796,525 

Streb has made the playoffs four of his seven seasons on the PGA Tour, with the outlier being his 2015 season when he posted nine top-10s and 16 top-25s, including his lone PGA Tour win as he banked nearly $4 million. Since then, he's had a couple solid seasons, but his two most recent seasons on the PGA Tour have left a lot to be desired. Streb's 2017-18 season was the low point. He fared much better last season, though he only made 12-of-28 cuts and ranked 160th in SG: Total, finishing 128th on the points list. A trip to the Korn Ferry Finals earned his card for this season. Just don't expect anything near his 2015 numbers.

118. Doug Ghim — R
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $243,356

Ghim has played 13 events on the PGA Tour, but he's a true rookie this season. He was a rookie on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2018-19 and played well enough to get the call to the big leagues after just one season. Ghim looks to have some potential as he fared pretty well in those 13 starts, with four top-25s and earnings more than $350k. Throw in some experience from the Korn Ferry Tour and Ghim just might be in the running for ROY by the end of this season.

119. Kristoffer Ventura — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,100,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $34,563 

Ventura broke 70 in just two of eight rounds at the PGA Tour level throughout the 2018-19 season, but he enjoyed a successful Korn Ferry Tour campaign that included wins at the Utah Championship and Pinnacle Bank Championshp to accompany a pair of third-place finishes at the BMW Charity Pro-Am and WinCo Foods Portland Open as well. Despite appearing in just nine events, Ventura managed to rank fourth in the KFT's Regular Season Points List as he positioned himself comfortably inside of the OWGR's top-200 by mid-August. Ventura is linked to rising star Viktor Hovland as the Norwegian duo each enjoyed successful collegiate careers as Oklahoma State Cowboys before turning professional.

120. Tom Lewis — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,075,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $171,700 

Ranked 61st or better in both the European Tour's Race to Dubai and the Official World Golf Ranking, Lewis embarked on a quest to secure a PGA Tour card for the first time in his career by competing in the Korn Ferry Tour's playoff finale. He not only accomplished this feat, but did so in dominant fashion by winning the Korn Ferry Tour Championship by a demanding five-stroke margin. Lewis' summer was also highlighted by a T11 at the Open Championship, his best finish in six total major appearances. The Englishman is a two-time winner on the Euro Tour and could begin to make more noise stateside, though a potentially inconsistent schedule may await if he continues to spend significant time playing events overseas.

121. Dylan Frittelli
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,576,974  

Entering the month of July, Frittelli was staring a return to the Korn Ferry Tour squarely in the face and then he won the John Deere Classic. That win was Frittelli's only top-10 of the season, but it was obviously enough to secure his privileges for the upcoming season and the one after as well. There are a couple issues when considering Frittelli this season. The first is, he didn't show much before or after his win at the John Deere. The second is, a lot of younger players don't perform the season after a big win. Whether it's because of a let down or some other reason, the seasons directly following that win is generally not a productive one.

122. Pat Perez
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,103,241  

It was only a couple seasons ago that Pat Perez found the Fountain of Youth and posted career-best numbers, including over $4 million in earnings and three top-3s. The following season, Perez posted strong number once again, just missing the $3 million mark in earnings, but his production began to fall-off last season. Perez barely made the top-125, which means he has his card for this upcoming season, but his prospects aren't getting any better. At 43, Perez's better days are behind him. As such, he's not a strong option in salary cap leagues this season.

123. Chris Stroud
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,075,552  

Stroud has been on the PGA Tour for the better part of 13 season and he's cracked the top-50 on the FedEx list at the end of just one season. He'll generally make more cuts than he misses each season, although that wasn't the case last season, but his upside is extremely limited. Stroud has just five top-3s in 346 starts on the PGA Tour. He'll play a lot, probably make around $1 million this season, but don't expect a big bump in earnings.

124. Carlos Ortiz
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,073,962  

Ortiz put together a decent rookie season in 2015, but he fell just short of retaining his card the following season. After two seasons away from the PGA Tour, he made it back this past season and accomplished just enough to retain his card for next season. To this point in his career, there hasn't been much upside and as such, he doesn't make for a good salary cap option this season.

125. Kyoung-Hoon Lee
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,061,457  

Lee's rookie season got off to a rough start, as he missed the cut in seven of his first 11 events, but he turned it around in time to secure his card for the upcoming season. While Lee's season has to be described as a success, there are some issues that are concerning. Lee posted only two top-10s and one of them came at the Zurich Classic, which. of course, is a team event. He also missed plenty of cuts late in the season as well. As such, he carries too much risk in salary cap formats this season.

126. Brian Gay
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,029,440  

Gay's PGA Tour career started slowly in the late-90s, but he found his groove about a decade later when he picked up three wins in two years. Since then, it's been a mixed bag and although he's played pretty well over the past two seasons, his upside appears to be a thing of the past, leaving him as a mediocre-at-best salary cap option. He does play a lot however, which means he has value in other formats.

127. Nick Watney
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,008,964  

Once upon a time, Watney was one of the best players on the PGA Tour and although he's shown flashes of that guy over the past six seasons, it's clear that he's just not that player anymore. Watney has posted a couple good earnings numbers over the past six seasons, but his ceiling now is below $2 million, and more likely lies in the mid-$1 range. As such, he doesn't hold much value in a salary cap format.

128. Scott Brown
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $999,457  

Since a rough rookie season in 2012, Brown has been remarkably consistent as a member of the PGA Tour. Brown has successfully retained his card in each of the past seven seasons and he's finished below the $1 million mark just once during that time. The problem with Brown is, he hasn't shown much of an upside over the past seven seasons. He topped-out at just over $1.7 million in 2017, which means his upside is not high enough to risk a salary cap spot.

129. Sepp Straka
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $934,894  

With all the outstanding play by rookie golfers on the PGA Tour this past season, Straka flew a bit under the radar, but he accomplished goal number one for every new member of the PGA Tour and that's to secure your card for the following season. Straka didn't offer much excitement this past season, he was more of a grinder, with five top-25s and only one top-10. It's too early to make a call on Strake, but it's probably wise to wait another year or two on him before trying to fit him under your salary cap.

130. Kelly Kraft
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $905,681  

Kraft began his PGA Tour journey four seasons ago and has little success as he finished 165th in the FedEx standings. The following season, he parlayed his limited privileges into two top-3s and regained his card. In the two seasons since, he has posted a runner-up showing each year, which has kept him safely inside the top-125. The problem is, he plays nearly 30 times each season and generally ends up with a top-10 only 10% of the time. There doesn't appear to be a lot of upside with Kraft, which means he's not a good salary cap option this season.

131. Nick Taylor
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $892,663  

Taylor has spent five seasons on the PGA Tour and he's been remarkably consistent during that time. In four of those five seasons, he ranked between 102and and 129th on the FedEx points list. His best season was 2017, when he finished 84th on the list. His earnings have ranged from $600k to $1.2 million. Basically, he's steady, but there's really no upside. Not a great formula for salary cap purposes.

132. Jonas Blixt
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $838,271  

Blixt has been on the PGA Tour full-time since 2012, he has three wins in that time, yet only just over $10 million in earnings. You'd expect a higher career number with full-time status and three wins over an 8-year span, but Blixt has only 13 top-10s in his career. He's the classic "hit or miss" guy and although he's hit on a few occasions, he's mostly missed over the past six seasons. He crept inside the top-125 this past season, which means he'll again be a full member this season, but his upside is limited, even if he happens to win at some point.

133. Bill Haas — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $1,000,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $730,806  

Haas has been one of the most consistent players throughout most of his career. The last two seasons, however, he has failed to make the playoffs or top $750,000. He had five top-15 finishes last season and only missed seven cuts in 23 starts, but his best finish was only a T10. Haas is still only 37 years old and he ranked 98th in SG: Total last season, which makes me think he is poised for a bounce-back season in 2019-20.

134. Lucas Bjerregaard — I
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $970,000
2018-19 Earnings: $592,694 

Bjerregaard was inconsistent last season, making nine of 14 PGA cuts. At the start of the season, he played the weekend in a handful of back-to-back events  but soon got sporadic.  His standout moment was defeating Tiger Woods in match play at the  WGC-Dell Technologies event. Despite the inconsistency, it was enough to earn a PGA Tour card as a non-member — barely. His 394 non-member points ranked as the equivalent of 124th on the FedEx points list. The 28-year-old Dane has won five international events, including the 2018 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. His length off the tee gives him an advantage (he ranked 12th in driving distance last season). He will need to tidy up his putting and around the green play to be more consistent this season.

135. Harry Higgs — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $950,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

Slated to become a PGA Tour rookie at age 27, Higgs endured a hefty schedule on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019 as he qualified for the weekend in an impressive 17 of 21 starts. He finished fifth on the Regular Season Points List thanks in large part to a win at the Price Cutter Charity Championship, but he also racked up five top-10s and 12 top-25s. Higgs, who rose to 12th in ball striking, ranked third in both putting and birdie average on the KFT. He led the PGA Tour Latinamerica in earnings throughout the 2018 campaign, commencing a success story that has resulted in Higgs vaulting as high as 146th in the OWGR.

136. Austin Cook — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $950,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $837,788  

Cook had a disappointing sophmore season after his rookie campaign where he won and posted seven other top-25s against just five missed cuts in 29 starts. Thankfully that win in the 2017-18 season keeps him in good position to have enough starts to have a solid shot to get back to the playoffs. Cook is a good driver of the ball, but needs to improve the short game. Last year he was 192nd on tour in SG: Around-the-green. Cook is a decent choice for salary cap leagues.

137. Bronson Burgoon — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $950,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $814,673  

Burgoon posted a career-high $1,179,616 in 2017-18 and finished 111th to 135th in three consecutive full seasons on the PGA Tour. A runner-up at the 2018 CIMB Classic and another fifth-place finish were not enough to retain status without an appearance in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, as those were his only two finishes inside the top 30 in 20 starts. Burgoon ranked 54th or better in both GIR percentage and driving accuracy on the PGA Tour during the 2018-19 campaign, but he also finished the season at an elite ranking of eighth in proximity from over 200 yards. The 32-year-old was also nearly 100 positions worse in SG: Total. Burgoon is a boom-or-bust pick in salary cap formats for the 2019-20 season.

138. Brandon Hagy — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $925,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $14,555 

Hagy hit his stride as a rookie throughout the 2016-17 season when he made 17 cuts and racked up over $850k in earnings thanks in part to six top-25s, but a wrist injury cut his 2018 campaign short and he then made just one cut in 13 starts during the 2019 season. He'll be back on the PGA Tour despite finishing outside of the top-250 in the FedEx Cup standings, however, having notched back-to-back top-5s during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship and Albertsons Boise Open. Hagy ranked third in driving distance and 27th in SG: Off-the-Tee back in 2017, so there is ball-striking upside upon his return to full health now.

139. Chase Seiffert — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

The best performance of Seiffert's professional career is still a top-10 showing at the 2018 Travelers Championship, but he also managed to rack up five finishes of T7 or better throughout his 2019 campaign on the Korn Ferry Tour en route to placing 15th on the Regular Season Points List. Seiffert missed only five cuts in 20 events through the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, reaching double-digit top-25 results in the process. He also ranked seventh in putting average and 11th in ball striking, showcasing quite the all-around game.

140. Matt Jones
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,024,852  

Jones has been on the PGA Tour for over decade, with his best years from 2013-2015 when he easily cleared over $1.5 million each year. Since then however, Jones has struggled to retain his card, failing to crack the top-125 on the points list in three of the four most recent seasons. While he's not too far removed from his best seasons, there doesn't appear to be a lot of upside left with Jones. As such, he's an easy fade in salary cap leagues.

141. Roger Sloan
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $1,015,661 

Sloan's first attempt as a regular on the PGA Tour was an absolute disaster. 20 starts, only one top-25 and 13 missed cuts. Obviously he was nowhere near the top-125, which meant it was back to the minors. He clawed his way back this past season however and took full advantage of his second chance. Though he was unable to crack the $1 million mark, he finished comfortably inside the top-125 in FedEx points. The primary reason for that was a runner-up in Puerto Rico, which always breeds caution because of the field. With that in mind, Sloan just hasn't proven enough yet to justify a salary cap selection this season.

142. Sebastian Munoz
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $946,666  

Munoz's first go-round on the PGA Tour ended in a spot outside the top-125, but his second attempt concluded with a better result. Munoz slid just inside the top-125 last season, which means he has his playing privileges for next season. That's the good news. The bad news is, there wasn't much to see last season from Munoz. While he managed to secure his card, his best finish was a T9 and most of his best work was done against lesser fields. Munoz is young and has time to grow, but through two seasons on the PGA Tour, he looks like guy who will continually struggle to get inside the top-125.

143. Aaron Baddeley
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $904,982  

It seems like just yesterday "Badds" was on the verge of taking over the PGA Tour and while that never happened, he has managed to bank over $20 million in earnings over the past 20 years. Baddeley has largely struggled over the past seven years, posting just one win during that span and eclipsing the $1 million mark just once as well. His better days are obviously behind him and there's no reason to consider him in salary cap formats.

144. Peter Malnati
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $864,496  

Malnati struggled out of the gate as a rookie in 2012, earnings just over $270k, but he rebounded nicely in his next attempt in 2016, picking up a win and over $1.2 million in earnings. Since then however, it's been a real struggles as he's pocketed an average of just over $500k per season over the past three seasons. He did improve some last season from the previous two years, but not enough to justify a salary cap selection this season.

145. Martin Laird
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $863,054  

Laird's prospects as a salary cap selection are a thing of the past as he just doesn't have the upside that he once had. He's remained productive over the past six seasons, but he's topped $1.5 million in earnings just once in that span. Laird will likely find himself in the same spot this season as last season ... fighting for a spot inside the top-125. As such, there's no reason to consider him in salary cap leagues.

146. Richy Werenski — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $851,329 

What a crazy season for Werenski. He notched four top-25s in the 2018-19 season, but only one in his final 22 starts. He finished just outside the top 125 during the regular season and just inside the top 25 in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals to retain his playing privileges on the PGA Tour. This is Werenski's fourth season on the PGA Tour, and if it's like his previous three, it will be a battle all season just to stay in the top 125. Ball striking is where he needs to improve the most, as the only strokes gained category he ranked inside the top 100 was putting. Werenski has earned $850k to $1.1 million in each of his previous three seasons on the PGA Tour. He will need to take advantage of the fall portion of the schedule, as he did last year, if he wants to get back into the playoffs in 2019-20.

147. Peter Uihlein — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $842,991  

Uihlein's first season as a PGA Tour member in 2017-18 was very solid, finishing 64th in the FedExCup standings and gaining nearly $1.8 million. 2018-19 was a different story, as he made just 14-of-29 cuts and two top-10's. The putter was pretty solid last year, but he needs to become a more consistent ball striker if he wants to be able to compete more regularly. Uihlein is a boom-or-bust selection in salary cap formats.

148. Shawn Stefani — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $798,831  

Stefani missed the playoffs for the third straight year last season. He was able to close out the season by making the cut in his last six starts, and total six top-25s. Stefani's iron play was encouraging, finishing 37th in SG: Approach and 16th in GIR's. The dirver and the putter is what needs the most straightening out, as he was outside the top 140 on tour in SG: Off-the-tee and SG: Putting. If Stefani has a strong fall in the 2019-20 season, he will set himself up for a much easier path back to the FedExCup playoffs. His best season remains 2015 when he gained over $1.7 million.

149. Zack Sucher — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $753,782  

Sucher only made 10 starts last season after having surgery on his leg back in 2017. He was able to use the last of a medical exemption to parlay that into a T2 finish at the Travelers Championship, locking up conditional PGA Tour status next year. Sucher is a player that does have some upside, as he has length and hit nearly 70 percent of the GIR last season.

150. Hank Lebioda — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $656,802 

Lebioda was a rookie on the PGA Tour in 2018-19 and fared pretty well, making 15-of-23 cuts with three top-25s in five events in April and May.  His ball striking was solid, ranking 62nd in SG: Tee-to-green and 25th in GIR percentage. Although he did not finish in the top 125, he did crack the top 150 and also managed a spot inside the top 25 on the Korn Ferry Tour Finals to retain his PGA Tour card for this season.  The Florida State product was also 23rd in birdie average. Putting is where the improvement needs to be made, but that's easier to fix than the long game. At just 25, Lebioda has time to improve, which he will this season.

151. Kevin Chappell — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $900,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $257,024 

Chappell played three events before back surgery ended his 2018-19 season. He participated in the Korn Ferry playoffs to earn a 2019-20 card. If he doesn't make it there, Chappell will surely get a major medical extension, though the Tour has not announced them for 2019-20 as yet. As a former champion, Chappell also has Past Champions status in his back pocket, but that's a long way away.

152. Ryan Brehm — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $875,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

Brehm had dipped as low as No. 1,375 in the Official World Golf Ranking following a missed cut at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Championship in April, but the Michigan State product rapidly ascended back inside of the top 300 late in the Korn Ferry Tour season as he picked up a victory at the LECOM Health Challenge. Brehm tallied nine top-25s and amassed over $250k in official earnings throughout his 2019 campaign, allowing a comfortable position among "The 25" on the KFT. At 6-foot-4, 220, the 33-year-old still harnesses enough power to stay relevant on longer tracks as he ranked 10th in driving distance, 14th in GIR percentage and 12th in birdie average.

153. Wes Roach — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $875,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $860,264  

Roach has now had three years with status on the PGA Tour and has yet to make the FedExCup playoffs. Last season his best career finish with a T3 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, but he was only able to amass a total of three top-25s in 21 starts. Roach was right on about tour average across the board in strokes gained, which is encouraging. Still, he should be fighting hard for a playoff start next season, making him a bit of a risky option in salary cap formats.

154. Scott Harrington — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $840,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $NA 

Despite closing in on his 40s, Harrington could be an intriguing prospect when considering short-term deep sleepers among the 2019-20 rookie class. En route to finishing 19th on the Regular Season Points List, he ranked fourth in ball striking, fifth in all-around, fourth in birdie average and sixth in total driving. Harrington is also heating up just in time for the wraparound fall series, placing T3-MC-T28-T11-2-T14 from the TPC Colorado Championship to the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship.

155. Tyler McCumber — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $815,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $46,000 

McCumber has yet to appear in a PGA Tour event and NOT finish top-25. The sample size is comically small with just two career starts, but he went T19-T25 at the 2018 Corales Championship and Safeway Open while raking in an average of $42,900 per tourney. McCumber made nearly double that amount over an entire season on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019, compiling eight top-25s, four top-10s and a pair of third-place finishes to just four missed cuts through 20 starts as he rose to 22nd in the Regular Season Points List. A shoddy short game is worrisome, but McCumber could be a sneaky punt play in DFS formats throughout the format after ranking seventh in driving distance, 10th in birdie average and 16th in ball striking on the KFT.

156. Ryan Blaum — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $755,802  

Blaum made the playoffs each of his first two years prior to last season. His lone top-10 in the 2018-19 season was a T4 at the RSM Classic. Iron play is where he will be looking to make the biggest improvement, as Blaum ranked 162nd in SG: Approach and 152nd in GIR percentage last season. The 35-year-old has never surpassed $1 million in a season, so his upside for the 2019-20 season is relatively low.

157. Beau Hossler — F
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $645,795 

Hossler relied on a red-hot flat stick throughout his 2018-19 rookie campaign as he ranked 10th in SG: Putting and seventh in putting from inside 10 feet, but his overall play took an evident turn for the worse after cashing nearly $2.5M the season prior. He only collected three top-25s in 27 starts, including zero in his last 17 starts as the former Longhorn standout missed 11 cuts and failed to pick up a single top-10, falling to 145th in the FedEx Cup standings, more than 100 spots off his  2017-18 ranking. He'll retain his card thanks to a T2 at the Korn Ferry Tour Finals' Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. Hossler has always been a strong putter, but his ball striking has to improve if he wants to consistently contend. Last year he was 178th in SG: Tee-to-green. Hossler is still only 24 and has shown talent, so a bounce back season would not be out of the question. 

158. Charl Schwartzel — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $232,725 

Another major champion, the 2011 Masters winner shut it down a week after Augusta in 2019 with a wrist injury. The 34-year-old South African has fallen well outside the top 100 in the world rankings, but it's hard to know how much is injury related or just poor play. Schwartzel should get a major medical extension, but the Tour has not announced them for the 2019-20 season as yet. Further, it's unknown when he'll return.

159. Zac Blair — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $800,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $6,660  

Blair went back to the drawing board after finishing outside of the top-100 in the FedEx Cup standings in four consecutive seasons from 2015-2018. Back-to-back top-10s at the Korn Ferry Tour's Pinnacle Bank Championship and Price Cutter Charity Championship in late July would foreshadow a win at the Ellie Mae Classic where Blair posted a 65.75 scoring average and locked up his PGA Tour card for the 2019-20 campaign in the process. He ultimately finished 12th on the KFT's Regular Season Points List and nearly led the entire Tour in driving accuraxcy. Blair is short off the tee, but he ranked 15th in both GIR percentage and putting average among his peers.

160. Josh Teater — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $775,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $663,570  

Teater has not made the FedExCup playoffs since 2013. He started last season with just one top-25 in 21 starts, but went T6-T13-T6 his last three events. His close last season combined with the fact he was 85th in SG: Total and eighth in GIR's, leaves a little encouragement going into the 2019-20 season.

161. Maverick McNealy — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $775,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $13,568  

McNealy made his PGA Tour debut as a bright-eyed 18-year-old back in 2014 when he qualified for the U.S. Open, and despite making 16 additional appearances since that point, he'll still be eligible for the Rookie of the Year award quest throughout the 2019-20 campaign after earning full status via the Korn Ferry Tour's Regular Season Points List. The former Stanford standout, who won the 2015 Haskins Award as the nation's top collegiate golfer, notched top-3 finishes at the LECOM Suncoast Classic and Ellie Mae Classic on the KFT in 2019. He also ranked sixth or better among his peers in both putting and birdie average. Well known for his family's fortune off the course, McNealy should be taking golf notes from girlfriend Danielle Kang of LPGA fame.

162. Robby Shelton — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

The 23-year-old University of Alabama product was scorching hot from April to May as he tallied wins at the Korn Ferry Tour's Nashville Golf Open and Knoxville Open en route to a quartet of top-4 finishes in a span of five starts. This blistering stretch ultimately led to runner-up honors on the KFT's Regular Season Points List, despite Shelton being restrained by seven total missed cuts and a WD. The 2019-20 campaign will mark Shelton's first season as a full-status cardholder on the PGA Tour, but he won't be eligible for the Rookie of the Year award after playing in eight events during the 2016-17 season when he made five cuts and posted a T16 at the 2017 Valero Texas Open.

163. Martin Kaymer — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $877,761  

The former World No. 1 continued his downward spiral in the 2018-19 season. In 14 starts on the PGA Tour, Kaymer's lone top-25 was a third place showing at the Memorial Tournament. He ranked 66th in SG: Tee-to-green, but 142nd in SG: Putting last season. One would think Kaymer could find a way to have a better season than last year, but the risk is how many starts he actually makes on the PGA Tour next season. It's best to avoid him.

164. Seamus Power — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $773,976  

There wasn't a huge difference from the 2017-18 season when Power made the playoffs, and last season when he finished 143rd in the standings. He only had two more missed cuts and one less top-25 this past season. Power needs to really make a big step up in his ball striking, as he ranked 189th in SG: Approach and 177th in SG: Tee-to-green. He will be a risky option in salary cap leagues.

165. Harris English — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $628,922  

After making the playoffs each of his first seven seasons on the PGA Tour, English had his worst season to date in 2018-19. He failed to finish better than a T12 with only three other top-25s. English ranked 16th in SG: Putting, but 151st in SG: Tee-to-green. He certainly has shown he has the game in the past with four seasons earning at least $1.9 million. English will be a dice roll in salary cap formats next season.

166. Cameron Davis — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $477,467 

Davis was a rookie on the PGA Tour in 2018-19, and although he played well in spots, he never found any consistency and ended up outside the top 150 on the FedEx Points list. He played well enough down the stretch, however, to earn his card for the this season by finishing in the top 25 on the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. It's not uncommon for young golfers to struggle in their first attempt on the PGA Tour, and with a year under his belt, expect Davis to show some improvement this season.

167. Jamie Lovemark — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $145,999 

Lovemark played seven events before calling it a season with a shoulder injury in 2018-19. He's now trying to get back via the Korn Ferry playoffs but if not, he probably will get a major medical extension for next season. The Tour has not announced medical extensions for 2019-20 as yet. Even if he gets one, Lovemark will have to show he's worth your investment.

168. Ben Martin — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $750,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0  

The 31-year-old Martin played one PGA Tour event and six on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2018-19, and he's still under a major medical. But he also played the Korn Ferry playoffs, and delivered a top-20 in the first of three events. Otherwise, he has six events to accrue 111 points.

169. Xin-Jun Zhang — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $725,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $55,000 

Perched atop the Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season Points List, Zhang collected a pair of wins at the Dormie Network Classic at Briggs Ranch and the Lincoln Land Championship to go along with seven total top-10s in 20 events played this season. Albeit it at a lower level of competition, it was quite a bounce-back effort for Zhang, who had missed the cut in 16 of 28 starts as a PGA Tour rookie the year prior. That disappointing campaign came on the heels of controversy as Zhang became infamous on the Chinese Tour in 2014 due to signing for incorrect scores, on more than one occasion. On the KFT, Zhang ranked second in both scoring and birdie average thanks in large part to stellar putting statistics.

170. Matthew NeSmith — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $725,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA 

A pair of 63s to open the Ellie Mae Classic in early August foreshadowed what was to come for NeSmith during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, as he went on to fire a seven-under 64 during the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open and win the event by one stroke while locking up a PGA Tour card for the first time. NeSmith has made five career starts at the PGA Tour level, though he's missed the cut in each attempt and was unable to break 70 in all 10 rounds. He led the entire KFT in GIR percentage throughout the 2019 season, however, and NeSmith also ranked 11th in total driving.

171. Chris Baker — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $715,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA 

Baker, who essentially earned his PGA Tour card for the 2019-20 season by tying for fourth at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship, amassed seven top-10s in 25 starts while ranking third in driving accuracy, seventh in ball striking and 16th in GIR percentage. He'll need to make major improvements with the flat stick to compete at the next level, but his short game is far from a total disaster as he also ranked second in scrambling on the Korn Ferry Tour. Baker does lack experience on the PGA Tour with just one career showing, missing the cut at the 2016 Honda Classic.

172. Ted Potter Jr. — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $757,721  

After winning nearly $2 million in 2017-18, albeit a huge chunk was thanks to his one win at Pebble Beach, Potter failed to produce results last season. He made 14-of-23 cuts with his lone top-10 coming at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. It's best to avoid Potter in all fantasy formats next season, as his inconsistency is frustrating and he was 183rd on tour in SG: Total last season.

173. Jim Herman — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $678,185  

Herman had one good week in the 2018-19 season. He won the Barbasol Championship to give himself a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour. Other than that, Herman made four cuts in 20 starts with no finishes better than a T43. He should be avoided in all fantasy formats next season.

174. Roberto Castro — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $674,250  

Castro earned over $2.5 million in the 2015-16 season and made it to East Lake, but since then he has struggled mightily. Last season was his most productive since, but he still couldn't crack $700,000 in 22 starts. His iron play was solid, but his lack of length means he needs to be better than 119th in SG: Putting. Castro offers very little upside in salary cap formats next season.

175. Dominic Bozzelli — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $668,449  

Bozzelli has now missed the playoffs each of the last two season after finishing 119th and earning $868,519 in the 2016-17 season. Bozzelli had a solid fall last year and a decent finish, but everything in the middle left a lot to be desired. The 28-year-old ranked fourth in SG: Putting, but 189th in SG: Tee-to-green. The ball striking needs major improvement if he wants to be competive next season. Bozzelli is a risky option in salary cap formats next season.

176. Johnson Wagner — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $597,792  

Wagner has now missed the playoffs in each of the last three seasons. In 2018-19 he finished second in Puerto Rico among four other top-25s. He was 17th in SG: Putting and second in GIR percentage as well, but 154th in SG: Off-the-tee and 176th in SG: Around-the-green. The 39-year-old will find making the playoffs hard again being on conditional status, but he has shown promise with his irons and putter.

177. Tom Hoge — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $700,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $573,464 

After struggling to retain his card during his first three seasons on the PGA Tour, Hoge had a breakthrough season in 2017-18, when he cleared more than $1.3 million and finished 80th on the FedEx list. Last season, however, Hoge regressed to his previous form and again battled the entire season to get into the top 125, which he failed to do. He got his card back via the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. He has shown some upside, but he's also shown just average ability in four of five seasons on the PGA Tour.

178. Henrik Norlander — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $675,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $14,592  

Norlander fell off the PGA Tour's radar after tying for second at the 2016 RSM Classic, spending the next three seasons on the Korn Ferry Tour as he struggled to remain in a groove before winning the Wichita Open this June, propelling him to an 11th-place finish on the Regular Season Points List. The Swede also posted back-to-back top-4s at the Nashville Golf Open and KC Golf Classic earlier in the season, adding to his nine total top-25s in 21 events played. Norlander ranked top-10 on the KFT in ball striking, GIR percentage, driving accuracy and par-3 scoring.

179. Bo Hoag — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $650,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

Hoag posted just a single top-10 finish despite making 20 cuts on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019, but he made it count as the 31-year-old strolled to scores of 66-68-63-65 while surging to victory at the regular season finale. A late win at the WinCo Foods Portland Open not only earned Hoag full status on the PGA Tour for the first time ever, but he also received a congratulatory call from fellow Columbus, Ohio native Jack Nicklaus. Hoag's support system includes arguably the greatest golfer of all time, so there won't be a shortage of proper advice available throughout his upcoming rookie campaign. This past season on the KFT, Hoag ranked second in GIR percentage and 14th in ball striking, but fell to 129th in putts per round.

180. Martin Trainer — C 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $650,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $692,155  

Trainer had a very disappointing rookie season with the exception of one week. He won the Puerto Rico Open, which gives him a two year exemption he will hope to take advantage of in his sophomore campaign. Trainer would not be a smart pick in salary cap leagues though, as he closed last season with 11 straight missed cuts and ranked 192nd in SG: Total.

181. Tyler Duncan — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $640,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $595,502 

Duncan has made the cut in 34 of 60 total starts on the PGA Tour over the last two seasons, but he's only compiled a trio of top-10s during this span and has yet to surpass the $1M mark in single-season earnings. He dropped to 163rd in the FedEx Cup standings to end the 2018-19 campaign, though he ranked 14th in driving accuracy and 41st in GIR percentage despite losing strokes from tee to green. Duncan's clutch top-5 at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship will allow him to retain status, but a lousy putter continues to hinder his birdie or better percentage.

182. Lanto Griffin — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

Relegated to the Korn Ferry Tour after a PGA Tour rookie campaign in 2018 that included missed cuts in half of his 26 showings, Griffin rebounded in a big way by finishing sixth on the KFT's Regular Season Points List in 2019. He won the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Championship in late April and threatened to go back-to-back the following week at the Dormie Network Classic, but Xinjun Zhang steered five strokes clear of his peers at the top of the leaderboard by tournament's end while Griffin tied for second. Griffin reached double-digit top-25 finishes on the KFT as he ranked eighth in birdie average and seventh in putts per round. The 31-year-old journeyman owns four total wins as a professional, but Griffin has yet to make his presence felt at the PGA Tour level.

183. Zach Johnson — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $603,160  

The former top-10 golfer and two-time major champion has been fading for a number of years now. But his slide was never like it was last season, when the 43-year-old Johnson missed the playoffs for the first time. He wound up 154th in the point standings — after finishing in the 40s-50s the three previous seasons — and has fallen well outside the top 100 in the world rankings. Johnson maintains full playing privileges thanks to his 2015 win at the Open  — still his most recent win. This five-year exemption ends with this coming season, however. In the past, Johnson could always fall back on strong showings at the John Deere and the Open to get a good chunk of his points for the season. But he didn't even do that in the 2018-19 season, finishing outside the top 35 at the Deere and missing the cut at Royal Portrush. His lone top-10 came almost a year ago at the RSM Classic, and there is little reason to expect anything better this season. Of course, Johnson will be entered in at least two majors, the Masters and the Open.

184. Jimmy Walker — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $590,437  

Walker is another former major champion, and he's hanging on to his Tour card solely because of his win at the 2016 PGA Championship. This will be the fourth year of his five-year exemption. He finished 158th in the 2018-19 point standings, making only 15 cuts in 22 starts, with just three top-25s and zero top-10s. Walker will still get to play in the PGA, of course, and that's where he got one of this top-25s last season. But now in his 40s, Walker is hardly a fantasy consideration.

185. D.J. Trahan — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $600,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $507,919 

Trahan has spent the better part of the last decade just trying to get back onto the PGA Tour full time and he finally has another chance this upcoming season. The problem is, Trahan hasn't accomplished much on the PGA Tour since 2010 and the odds of are resurgence this season are slim. It would be a major accomplishment just to get inside the top 125 this season.

186. Kramer Hickok — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $550,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $494,424 

After consecutive missed cuts at the Barracuda and Wyndham Championship left Hickok on the outside of the top-150 in the FedEx Cup standings through the end of the 2018-19 PGA Tour season, he quickly rebounded by going T19-T5-3 during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals to retain his card. Hickok owns just one top-10 in 30 career starts, but he ranked top-40 in both SG: Off-the-Tee and SG: Around-the-Green this past season, ultimately making the cut in half of his 26 performances. 

187. Rafael Campos — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $530,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $7,540  

The 31-year-old Puerto Rican already owns a trio of top-10s in 17 career starts on the PGA Tour since 2008, but Campos will still qualify for rookie status throughout the upcoming season with no more than four events played in a single campaign up to this point. Campos has spent the majority of his past four seasons on the Korn Ferry Tour, finally picking up his first win as a professional in 2019 at the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic back in late January. He only notched one other top-10, but the win early on in the season was good enough to keep him inside of the top-25 on the KFT's Regular Season Points List. Campos' ball striking was occasionally a concern as he fell to 108th in GIR percentage, but he's 40th in birdie average and 22nd in scrambling.

188. Anirban Lahiri — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $525,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $419,620 

Finishing outside of the top-125 in the FedEx Cup standings for the first time since 2015, Lahiri had no choice but to participate in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals after notching just two top-25s on the PGA Tour this past season. He'll retain his card thanks to top-10s at the KFT's Albertsons Boise Open and Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, but Lahiri's value remains extremely limited moving forward as he ranked just 176th in SG: Tee-to-Green and 177th in GIR percentage during his 2018-19 campaign.

189. Sebastian Cappelen — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

Volatility was the name of the game for Cappelen on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019 as the Dane won the Rex Hospital Open and tied for second at the Wichita Open, but he also missed the cut in over half of his 20 starts. A disappointing closing effort to the season included four straight MCs from the TPC Colorado Championship to the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, but his PGA Tour card for the 2019-20 campaign has already been secured. He hit just 54.16% of the fairways in regulation on the KFT, but Cappelen also finished top-20 in driving distance while sacrificing finesse for power.

190. Stewart Cink — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $368,008  

Cink is stuck in no-man's land, the last few years before the Champions Tour becomes an option. At 46, he finished 179th in the point standings in 2018-19, though he did miss some time with an injury. Being a former PGA Tour champion — and, of course, a major winner at the 2009 Open Championship — Cink will always be able to fall back on his Past Champions status. He played 16 events last season, making half his cuts with three top-25s.

191. Luke Donald — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $500,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $285,630  

The former world No. 1 returned from an injury layoff, albeit with little success. The 41-year-old Englishman played 12 events in 2018-19, making six cuts, with a lone top-10 at the Valspar. He still is eligible under a major medical extension; he has three tournaments left to earn about 220 FedEx Cup points. If he doesn't get them — and there's an outside chance he can by picking the right fall series events to play — Donald would fall back into the Past Champions category.

192. Rhein Gibson — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $475,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA 

The Aussie has grinded away on the Korn Ferry Tour since losing his PGA Tour card following the 2015-16 season, when he missed 11 cuts in 20 events and collected just $155,578 in earnings while falling to 199th in the FedEx Cup standings. He'll regain status for the 2019-20 campaign, however, as a win at the BMW Charity Pro-Am in early June allowed Gibson to finish 10th in the KFT's Regular Season Points List. He racked up a quartet of top-10 results in 2019, more than he had over the previous two seasons combined. Gibson ranked 16th in scrambling, 21st in GIR percentage and 24th in birdie average on the KFT.

193. David Hearn — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $470,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $397,677 

Hearn's 2018-19 earnings of just $397,677 are by far his lowest total since becoming a regular on the PGA Tour in 2011, and the Canadian subsequently slipped to 174th in the FedEx Cup standings as a result of his poor play. Hearn tied for fourth at the Korn Ferry Tour Finals to secure his card for another season, but his lack of power off the tee is catching up to him against better competition. Hearn ranked just 142nd in SG: Off-the-Tee despite finishing the season 13th in driving accuracy.

194. Vincent Whaley — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $465,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0  

Whaley enjoyed quite a successful maiden campaign as a professional on the Korn Ferry Tour as he made 15 of 23 cuts and gathered top-3 finishes at the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic and the Lincoln Land Championship to ultimately round out the Regular Season Points List at No. 25 as he'll already advance to the PGA Tour. The Georgia Tech product averaged 310.2 yards off the tee and ranked 17th in par-5 birdie or better percentage, but he also finished the season top-50 in putting average. Whaley has plenty of experience playing at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, but eventually qualifying for the 2020 TOUR Championship is just a dream at this point.

195. Fabian Gomez — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $450,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $433,027 

Gomez has appeared in at least 20 PGA Tour events throughout each of the last five seasons, and he'll retain his card again for the 2019-20 campaign despite finishing just 169th in the FedEx Cup standings. It took a runner-up effort at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship to keep his status, having collected only four top-25s in 20 starts on the PGA Tour this past season. Nonetheless, he managed to post a couple top-15s late in the summer at the 3M Open and Wyndham Championship, picking up steam before the KFT Finals. The 40-year-old Argentinian was 39th in SG: Around-the-Green, but ranked 100th or worse in the remaining Strokes Gained subcategories. 

196. Michael Gligic — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $445,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0  

A lousy putter restrained Gligic from recording any more than two top-10s on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019, but he surged to victory at the Panama Championship in early February thanks to a clutch final-round 65. Gligic would end the regular season with seven top-25s as he finished 17th on the points list and eighth among his peers in GIR percentage. The 29-year-old Canadian has never played in a PGA Tour event on U.S. soil.

197. Vince Covello — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $430,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0  

It took 80 career starts at the Korn Ferry Tour level, but Covello finally notched his first professional win in March at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open where he was one stroke shy of reaching an overall score of 20-under-par. Covello also tied for fourth at the Evans Scholar Invitational and added another top-10 result at the Wichita Open, but he would then miss five consecutive cuts from the LECOM Health Challenge through the WinCo Foods Portland Open to end the regular season at 20th in the points list. Nonetheless, Covello will earn a PGA Tour card for the first time ever, though his short game needs some polishing.

198. Mark Hubbard — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

Hubbard, who failed to collect a single top-10 finish from 2015-2017 despite playing in 82 PGA Tour events during this span, was relegated to the Korn Ferry Tour over the past two seasons where he failed to reach even $85k in earnings last year. The 2019 campaign was a positive development for Hubbard, however, amassing 10 top-25s and a win at the LECOM Suncoast Classic as he finished ninth in the KFT's Regular Season Points List and re-gained full status on the PGA Tour for 2019-20. Hubbard hit just over 70 percent of the greens in regulation and ranked 28th in driving accuracy on the KFT, but his upside is somewhat capped against stronger competition at more difficult venues given his lack of power off the tee.

199. Cameron Percy — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $387,612 

Percy has spent a lot of time on the PGA Tour over the past decade, both as a member and as the benefactor of sponsor's exemptions. The problem is, he hasn't really parlayed all of those starts into much. In 136 starts, Percy has just one top-3 and six top-10s. He has made more than $3 million on the PGA Tour, but his average of little more than $22k per start is a number that would leave him outside of the top 150 each season. Percy will struggle to get into the top 125 this season and ultimately fall short.

200. Graham DeLaet — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $251,630 

The 37-year-old Canadian has been sidelined by a back injury for some time now. He played in only three events in 2018-19. After a promising tie for fifth in the season-opening Safeway, DeLaet played two more events, withdrawing from the CJ Cup. That's the last we've seen of him. He still has 24 events under his major medical, needing only 266 points to keep his card. That's very doable — if healthy.

201. Wesley Bryan — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $400,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0  

Bryan had his card through the 2018-19 season thanks to winning the 2017 RSM Classic, but it is now expired. He has not played since the '18 RSM, shutting it down with a torn labrum in his shoulder. He has not returned to action but should receive a major medical extension. The Tour has not announced the extensions for the 2019-20 season as yet.

202. Michael Gellerman — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $390,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0  

Gellerman has missed the cut in 25 of his last 44 starts on the Korn Ferry Tour, but a win at the KC Golf Classic in mid-May allowed the 27-year-old Tucson native to secure a PGA Tour card as he's now slated to become a rookie and make his first ever appearance at the next level. Given Gellerman's struggles with scrambling throughout the 2019 season, it's a bit strange that he managed to claim victory at a somewhat difficult venue that didn't involve birdie-fest characteristics. He also tied for third later in the year at the TPC Colorado Championship, where his overall score of 13-under-par was two strokes better than the 11-under mark he set during the win in Kansas City. Gellerman's inconsistencies remain a concern, but he ultimately ranked top-20 on the KFT in GIR percentage.

203. Nelson Ledesma — R 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $375,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA  

Ledesma's inconsistency was apparent on the Korn Ferry Tour as his results ranged all over the place in 2019, notching first, second and third-place finishes to go along with nine missed cuts and a WD in 21 total starts through the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. A victory at the TPC Colorado Championship in mid-July pushed Ledesma comfortably inside of the Regular Season Points List's top-10, so he'll now become a rookie on the PGA Tour at 29 years old. The Argentinian's ball striking is a concern moving forward, however, as Ledesma ranked just 137th on the KFT in GIR percentage and 118th in driving accuracy.

204. Mark Anderson — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $350,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0  

Despite making his PGA Tour debut a decade ago in 2009, Anderson is still only nearing the $1M mark in career earnings through 66 total starts. He teed it up at the highest level just once during the 2018-19 season, however, missing the cut at the RBC Heritage. Anderson was essentially playing on house money knowing he had his PGA Tour card for the 2019-20 campaign wrapped up at that point, having won the Korn Ferry Tour's Country Club de Bogota Championship all the way back in early February. He also went on to earn runner-up honors at the Knoxville Open in July, but complacency kept in since that point. Anderson has fallen to 122nd on the KFT in ball striking and 132nd in putting average.

205. Tim Wilkinson — K 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $335,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $8,624  

The 41-year-old vet has earned nearly $4M on the course throughout a lengthy PGA Tour career spanning 162 events from 2003 to now, but Wilkinson has spent the past two years on the Korn Ferry Tour after finishing just 156th in the FedEx Cup standings during the 2016-17 season. Wilkinson's 2019 campaign on the KFT was highlighted by five top-10s, including a T3 at the Knoxville Open and a solo-second at the LECOM Health Challenge as he barely snuck inside of the Regular Season Points List. He led his peers in sand save percentage and ranked 26th in driving accuracy, but Wilkinson averaged less than 290 yards off the tee.

206. Brendon Todd — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $325,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $252,546 

Todd amassed a substantial $5,205,939 in earnings over a two-season stretch in 2014 and 2015, but it's since been quite a struggle for the 34-year-old. He's missed the cut in a whopping 41 of his last 55 starts dating back to the 2016 season, though he did notch a quartet of top-25s in 2019 before also tying for second at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals to retain status on the PGA Tour. Todd fell outside of the top-1000 in the Official World Golf Ranking after missing the cut at the U.S. Open in June, but he's back up to No. 506 heading into the 2019-20 opener.

207. Chris Kirk — E 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $300,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $261,401  

The 34-year-old Kirk ended his 2018-19 season after the Zurich Classic for personal reasons, announcing that he was battling "alcohol abuse and depression." If and when he returns, Kirk should get some sort of medical extension, though the Tour has not announced those for the 2019-20 season as yet.

208. Ben Taylor — R
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $300,000 
2018-19 Earnings: NA 

Taylor's T2 during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship may have been an anomaly as he otherwise missed the cut in four of his last five starts to end the season, but four consecutive sub-70 scores in Columbus, OH were good enough to earn the Englishman a PGA Tour card as he'll now become a rookie at the next level. Taylor, who played his college golf stateside at LSU, ranked outside of the top-100 in ball striking on the KFT in 2019.

209. Rob Oppenheim — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $250,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0 

Oppenheim has spent the last four seasons going back and forth between the PGA and Korn Ferry tours and, once again, he's back on the PGA Tour for this season. Oppenheim will turn 40 this season, and there's no reason to believe he'll find an extra gear that's eluded him on his prior attempts at staying on the PGA Tour this year. Oppenheim's best season on the PGA Tour was in 2016 when he earned little more than $460k.

210. Joseph Bramlett — F 
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $225,000 
2018-19 Earnings: $0 

Bramlett was a rookie on the PGA Tour in 2011 and that season did not go well. Bramlett finished well outside the top 125, and he's spent the last eight seasons trying to get back. He did just enough in 2018-19 to find his way back to the PGA Tour, but unless he improves his game, he'll have a hard time staying there. Bramlett hasn't had a lot of success on the Korn Ferry Tour  the last eight seasons, it's hard to imagine he'll have a lot of success on the PGA Tour this season.
