Aaron Wise
24-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks
Falters on back-nine Sunday
March 21, 2021
Wise posted a three-over 73 on Sunday in the final round of The Honda Classic to finish in a share of 13th place.
ANALYSIS
After a blistering start to the tournament in which he held a three-shot lead heading into the weekend, Wise started the day three back of Matt Jones coming into Sunday. Eyeing his first PGA Tour title, Wise closed the gap to one heading into the back-nine after four front-nine birdies. However, the wheels came off from there as Wise failed to record a birdie while recording a bogey, a double bogey and a triple bogey to fall outside the top-10. Nevertheless, Wise has been playing much better golf recently and is trending back in the right direction.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Wise wasn't among the top of his Web.com Tour class prior to his entrance to PGA Tour, so expectations weren't exactly high for him, and there was nothing on the course that Wise did early last season to catch much attention, but that changed at the Wells Fargo Championship in May. Wise finished runner-up at the Wells Fargo and in case anyone thought that effort was a fluke, he put all questions to bed the following week when he won the At&T Byron Nelson. He did miss five cuts directly following that win, but he recovered with a pair of top-10s later in the season. If Wise had a long track record of success, he might be in-play in salary cap formats this season, but since we only have one year to go no, he simply carries too much risk.
The former NCAA champion from the University of Oregon has already enjoyed several levels of success as a professional, securing both his first Web.com victory and PGA Tour top-10 during his 2016-2017 campaign. He first gained momentum with a T10 finish at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open back in November, but the highlight of his summer came at the Air Capital Classic in June where he fired back-to-back 62s in his first two rounds and led wire-to-wire. Despite ranking just 72nd in terms of ball striking on the Web.com Tour, Wise could be in line for one of the more successful PGA Tour careers out of this year's class of rookies.
