Past Fantasy Outlooks
Hughes got off to a fast start last season by winning the RSM Classic in November, but the rest of the season was a struggle. Hughes managed only one additional top-10 for the remainder of the season, which could be indicative of his talent or his state of mind. The latter is probably more likely as it's not uncommon for young golfers who win, to let up for a bit. Hughes is a tricky call though because his number is low enough to show great improvement this season, yet high enough that it requires a decent commitment. There is plenty of upside with Hughes, but his 2017 performance wasn't strong enough to justify his selection in a salary cap format.
Hughes got into the winner's circle this year at the Price Cutter Charity Championship in August, shooting a Saturday 64 to help propel him up the leaderboard. He added two other top-10s, leading the Canadian to the PGA Tour for 2016-17. He missed nine cuts in 23 starts, which is concerning, not helped by his 111st-place ranking in driving accuracy and 67th place in greens in regulation. But he has a strong putter, ranking 17th, and that will help take his game to new heights if he can hit more fairways and greens.
