2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Gooch put together a very similar season to what he did in 2019-20. He lost strokes again off the tee, but was top 70 on tour in all other areas. Gooch finished the season in the top 40 in scoring average. There's no reason to think the 29-year-old couldn't do it again in 2021-22. Read Past Outlooks
T15 at Kapalua
January 9, 2022
Gooch closed with a six-under 67 on Sunday at the Sentry Tournament of Champions to finish 20-under and tied for 15th.
ANALYSIS
Gooch fired back-to-back 67s over the weekend on the Plantation Course at Kapalua, ultimately tallying 11 birdies and an eagle in his final 36 holes. He finished the tournament ranked ninth in SG: Tee-to-Green, but Gooch struggled with the flat stick as he lost 2.343 strokes putting. He'll remain atop the FedExCup standings ahead of the Sony Open in Hawaii, where he's finished MC-T63-MC-T18 in four career appearances.

2017
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.
