Past Fantasy Outlooks
Year 3 on the PGA Tour was Gooch's best last season, making 17-of-23 cuts and notching nine top-25 finishes. He ended up top-55 in both SG: Total and scoring average. The 28-year-old solid finish last season does provide some reason for optimism going into Year 4.
Gooch is a perfect example of why you shouldn't write-off anyone that didn't finish in the top-125 the previous season. As a rookie, Gooch finished 139th on the FedEx list, but he retains partial privileges by staying inside the top-150. He parlayed his limited amount of starts (16) into over $1 million in earnings and full privileges for the upcoming season. Gooch appears to have some potential and should be given consideration as a salary cap selection this season.
Gooch's rookie season on the PGA Tour came and went without a top-10 finish, but did include five top-25s as he earned just north of $650,000. He's got plenty of development to do as the 26-year-old was very average in iron play and putting and below average off the tee due to inaccuracy. Don't expect much to change from last season to this one, though there's a decent chance for him to notch his first PGA Tour top-10 at some point in 2018-19.
Gooch appeared to simply be going through the motions throughout a majority of the Web.com season as he placed top-five just once in his first 16 starts, but a runner-up finish at the Price Cutter Charity Championship in August preceded his first career victory at the News Sentinel Open. He earned over $170K during these two weeks alone, boosting him into position to become a rookie on the PGA Tour as he finished sixth on the Web.com's regular season money list. Gooch also made the cut at the 2017 U.S. Open, but a final-round 80 resulted in a second-to-last place finish among those who made the weekend.
