RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Oosthuizen failed to capture a win last season, but he did about everything else expected. Oosthuizen finished runner-up at both the Players and the PGA Championship, which is why he nearly made the Tour Championship. Oosthuizen was the first man out for the Tour Championship, but his prospects look pretty good for the upcoming season. Look for Oosthuizen to find a win at some point, and show a slight increase in earnings.

2016-17

Oosthuizen's career trajectory is much like that of Graeme McDowell. Both guys won a major in 2010, both have had major ups and downs since then and neither has quite lived-up to expectations. In Oosthizuen's case, the most surprising fact is that he has just one win on the PGA Tour and that was his Open Championship victory in 2010. Since then, he's had plenty of success, but he hasn't had that breakthrough year. He was solid last season, but not great. Unfortunately, he was just good enough to push his earnings number to a point where it doesn't make much sense to select him in a salary cap format. In draft leagues he holds more value as he'll play in all the big events this season. As such, he's a third- or fourth-round selection in drafts.

2015-16

Oosthuizen's path has been very similar to Graeme McDowell's over the years. Both players were solid, but not great prior to winning their respective majors and both have failed to take their games up a notch since winning those majors. Oosthuizen still has plenty of upside, but he's had plenty of time to show his major winning form and he just can't get it back. He's worth a look in salary cap leagues, but don't feel bad if you can't find room for him. In draft leagues he should go in the 9th or 10th round.

2013

Oosthuizen got off to a slow start last season and although he showed some signs of life in early April, his season didn't really get started until August. A top-5 finish at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational started a stretch of seven consecutive top-25s that he'll carry into 2013. Like many on the PGA TOUR, Oosthuizen is a world traveler and his focus will never entirely be on just the PGA TOUR, but if he plays like he did last season, especially at the end, it won't matter. The problem with Oosthuizen, though, is the number of events he plays, coupled with the lack of a track record in the states. As such, it would probably be wise to pass on Oosthuizen in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues, Oosthiuzen is a late second-round pick.

2012

Much like his fellow major champion, Graeme McDowell, Oosthuizen struggled to back up his win in 2011. Oosthuizen never really got untracked last season and carded only three Top-10s, two of which came after the regular season ended. Oosthuizen is likely to play a limited schedule again this year, but he may worth a late-round pick because of his availability during big events.

2011

Oothuizen was the unlikely British Open Champion last season, which accounted for nearly all of his non-member PGA Tour earnings last season. Oothuizen is still young, so he might be getting better each season, but the fact is, his game as a whole last season was not very strong - at least in the States. He missed the cut at both the U.S. Open and the Masters in 2010. Still, he's set to join the PGA Tour in 2011 and will play at least 15 events in the U.S.
