Viktor Hovland
24-Year-Old Golfer
2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
There's never been a shortage of hype surrounding Hovland and while he's been a solid player on the PGA Tour since day one, entering his second full season on tour, he'd yet to really show what he had. Sure, he won the Puerto Rico Open as a rookie, but he didn't splash like many expected ... until 2020-21. Hovland not only picked up another win in year-two, but he added two runner-ups and two 3rd-place finishes on his way to more than $5 million. The jump to the $5 million club was quick, after all, the 2020-21 season was just his second on the PGA Tour and although the bar was set high, Hovland has the game to take it even higher. Considering his number for this season, Hovland can't be considered a great salary cap play, but he's definitely in the "good" camp. Read Past Outlooks
Top-five finish at East Lake
September 5, 2021
Hovland finished in a share of fifth place after shooting a five-under 65 in the final round of the TOUR Championship.
Hovland's final round included six birdies to just one bogey. He led the field this week in SG: Approach and SG: Tee-to-green. He just didn't make enough putts to go up and challenge the likes of Patrick Cantlay and Jon Rahm. Hovland is so consistent and is likely to turn in another big year in 2021-22.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Many young players on the PGA Tour struggle with consistency, but that's never been the issue for Hovland. Hovland has finished inside the top 25 in half of his 24 starts as a professional on the PGA Tour. He also picked-up his first win on the PGA Tour this past season and while that win came against a weaker field, the "real" wins are coming. Hovland's cap number is not discounted much from the shortened season, but he's still a bargain at his current price.
Hovland doesn't need much of an introduction after a T12 at the U.S. Open in June preceded four consecutive finishes of T16 or better to end the regular season, culminating with a solo-fourth at the Wyndham Championship. The Oklahoma State product failed to record a win like his fellow Class of '19 compadres, Matthew Wolff and Collin Morikawa, but expect Hovland to land in the winner's circle soon enough. He gained at least 8.4 strokes from tee to green throughout his last three starts on the PGA Tour before securing his card with results of T11-T2 at the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
