Past Fantasy Outlooks
The reports of Chris Riley's demise have been greatly exaggerated. OK, so they weren't exaggerated at all - Riley flat out stunk for about five years. Fortunately, it looks like he's finally back on track. It didn't take Riley long to figure out how to succeed on the PGA TOUR. By his third season he had broken into the $1 million club. By his fourth season, he made more than $2 million, and then, just as fast as it began, it ended. Riley went from a top-30 player, to off the PGA TOUR in a matter of a couple years. It's been a long road back, but it looks like he should continue to get better. Riley is very accurate off the tee, and when he's at his best, he's one of the PGA TOUR's best putters.
The former Ryder Cup member could surprise some folks in 2010 nd should improve over a mediocre 2009 campaign. Riley must play more than 22 events in 2010 to move into the top 125, but we expect that to happen in 2010.
It's hard to believe Riley forgot how to play golf. Yes, he played horribly last year, but this guy is only two years removed from a Ryder cup appearance. Thanks to that appearance in 2004, he's fully exempt for the 2006 season. Don't expect Riley to get back to the form he should to earn the Ryder Cup spot, but he should be able to compete again, and it won't take much to improve on his earnings from last year.
