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
Struggles again in Hawaii
January 9, 2022
Hovland closed with a six-under 66 in the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to finish tied for 30th.
After finishing in a share for 31st at last year's event, Hovland didn't make out much better this time around, especially struggling Saturday to an even-par 73 when the field was going low. His ball-striking was in good form the week, but he struggled with his short game where he lost over nine strokes around-the-green and on putting combined. Hovland is still expected to have a great 2022, having won his final two events last year.

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.
