Ryan Blaum
35-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Blaum had a steady, but not spectacular rookie season in 2017 and he followed that up with a solid, but not spectacular sophomore season. Most impressive from his rookie season was the 22 cuts made in 29 starts. He wasn't as consistent last season, with just 14 made cuts in 26 starts, but he posted eight top-25s, which was two more than his rookie season. While consistency is nice, it's not necessary to be successful on the PGA Tour. If last season was the start of a trend and he's trading consistency for higher upside, then Blaum could be a solid salary cap selection this season. Read Past Outlooks
Can't get anything going on weekend
January 15, 2019
Blaum shot a one-over 71 in the final round of the Sony Open to finish in a tie for 64th place.
ANALYSIS
Blaum was in a solid position at six-under-par through two rounds, but was over-par in both rounds on the weekend and got lapped at a gettable course. Blaum was third-worst of those who played all four rounds in SG: Tee-to-green, but did rank 22nd in SG: Putting. The Duke product has now made the cut in five of his six starts this season. He sits 48th in the FedExCup standings thanks mainly to a T4 at the RSM Classic. Blaum will look to do better at the Desert Classic than he did last year when he missed the cut.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Blaum showed an impressive amount of consistency during his first full season on the PGA Tour, making the cut in 22 of 29 starts. He wasn't able to get much done on the weekend, posting only two top-10s, but on the whole, it was a successful season. Though Blaum was at his most consistent during the fall portion of the season, he peaked during the summer, which is a good sign. Both of Blaum's top-10s came in July, which is promising for his prospects this season. Blaum's number makes him an interesting prospect for this season and if he can simply play a little better on the weekend, he'll improve significantly on his number this season.
Blaum got his PGA Tour card through the Web.com Tour Finals and used a T5 in Boise and a T18 in Columbus to do it. In Boise he finished with 64 and ranked T2 in birdies and 10th in putts per GIR. If he continues that combination on the PGA Tour, he might contend. Blaum was 33rd on the regular season money list, just missing his card that way. He also competed last fall at the OHL Classic on the PGA Tour and tied for 29th. A player hot now, the fall could be a good spot for him.
