2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks
Tallies 24 total birdies at TPC Boston
August 24, 2020
Gooch carded a two-under 69 on Sunday at the Northern Trust to finish 12-under and tied for 18th.
Gooch racked up an impressive 15 total birdies throughout his final 36 holes at TPC Boston, but the big numbers found his scorecard as well during the tournament as he tallied eight bogeys and two doubles. Nonetheless, he managed to post his fourth top-25 in six starts since the Workday Charity Open despite ranking just 54th in SG: Tee-to-Green at the Northern Trust. Gooch relied on his short game this past week, finishing fifth in SG: Putting, 22nd in SG: Around-the-Green and T4 in putts per GIR. At 52nd in the FedExCup standings, he'll head to the BMW Championship for the first time in his career.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
