26-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks
T6 at WGC-FedEx St. Jude
August 2, 2020
Schauffele moved into a tie for sixth place after his four-under 66 in the final round of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.
Schauffele has always been strong throughout his young career in big events, and he put together another good showing in Memphis. Take away his quad is round two and Schauffele makes just one bogey all week and is in a playoff at 13-under-par. His irons weren't as sharp as usual, but his short game was phenomenal which bodes well at a major championship next week. Schauffele will head into the PGA Championship with top-25's in nine of his last ten starts overall.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Schauffele is nothing if not consistent. Schauffele surprised the golf world by topping $4 million during his rookie season and he followed that up with another $4 million season in his second year on the PGA Tour. The only difference in the two seasons was the way he went about making that money. In his first season, he picked-up two victories, one of which came at the Tour Championship. In his second season, he failed to win, but he had more high-end finishes that he did in his rookie season and he was generally more consistent. It's certainly a good sign that Schauffele has proved he can find success in different ways, but there's no way to know if he can significantly improve upon the $4 million number. As such, Schauffele carries a lot of risk entering this season for salary cap purposes.
Schauffele wasn't even on the radar when the 2016-17 season began. He posted a top-5 during the fall portion of the season, but proceeded to miss four of his first five cuts in 2017. Everything started to click at the U.S. Open though as he posted another top-5 at Erin Hills. A few weeks later, he won the Greenbrier Classic and the entire complexion of his season changed. Schauffele scrambled on the back-nine at the BMW just to make the Tour Championship and he parlayed that into another win. In total, it was an amazing rookie season for Schauffele and while he appears to have a lot of talent, he set the bar awfully high last season, which makes him tough to pick in a salary cap format.
Schauffele, 26th on the regular-season Web.com Tour money list to miss a tour card that way by one spot, gathered himself and went T50-T18-T9 in the playoffs, clinching a spot on the PGA Tour and giving himself a nice sigh of relief. He's playing well and could hop up on a leaderboard this fall, as he was T12 in GIR and T15 in putts per GIR in Columbus.
