Leishman was perhaps the biggest surprise of the 2016-17 season. Leishman picked up his first win of the season at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March and scooped up a steady diet of top-10s and top-20s throughout the remainder of the regular season. It was during the playoffs though were he really took off, with a solo-3rd at the Dell and a win at the BMW Championship. Since joining the PGA Tour in 2009, Leishman has always been a productive player, but he lacked the consistency needed to take his game to the next level. That may not be a problem anymore, but he simply set the bar way too high to be considered in salary cap leagues this season.

  2. Marc Leishman 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Leishman was perhaps the biggest surprise of the 2016-17 season. Leishman picked up his first win of the season at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March and scooped up a steady diet of top-10s and top-20s throughout the remainder of the regular season. It was during the playoffs though were he really took off, with a solo-3rd at the Dell and a win at the BMW Championship. Since joining the PGA Tour in 2009, Leishman has always been a productive player, but he lacked the consistency needed to take his game to the next level. That may not be a problem anymore, but he simply set the bar way too high to be considered in salary cap leagues this season.
  3. Marc Leishman 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Leishman picked-up his first PGA Tour victory in 2012 and he posted a career-high in earnings in 2014, but the years in-between and after those events have been just so-so. He's not regressing, which is a good sign, but he's not showing any signs that a jump to the next level is imminent either. He post a career-best made cuts percentage of 80% last season and that is encouraging, but not encouraging enough to warrant a salary cap selection this season. In draft leagues he's a 7th-round pick.
  4. Marc Leishman 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    With six top-10s on his resume in 2014, Leishman was able to post a career-high in earnings last season. He's no stranger to top-10s however as he's earned at least two every season since joining the PGA Tour in 2009. Leishman set the bar pretty-high last year though and asking him to show a significant increase this season may be asking a bit too much. As such, he's not a good option in salary cap leagues this year, but he's a solid 3rd-4th round pick in draft leagues.
  5. Marc Leishman 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Leishman had a very nice four-week run last season, which started with a top-5 at the Masters and concluded with a T12 at the Byron Nelson Championship. Outside that stretch though, Leishman didn't accomplish much. Leishman seems to have all the tools necessary to take the next step, but obviously more consistency is needed. He's an interesting prospect in salary cap leagues as he's shown some grit during some big events and at this price, he might be worth a shot. In drafts he should go in the 50-60 range.
  6. Marc Leishman 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    Leishman has shown himself to be a solid player on the PGA TOUR, but he's yet to show huge upside. Leishman finished solo-third at the Byron Nelson in May and followed with a win at the Travelers in June. Other than that, he didn't do much outside a couple top-20s early in the season. To have value in salary cap leagues, Leishman will need to sprinkle in a few more top-10s this season. He's certainly capable, but he's still too much of a risk at this price. In draft leagues, he should go in the fifth round.
  7. Marc Leishman 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    There was nothing spectacular about Leishman's 2011 season. He collected two Top-10s early in the year and pretty much rode out the remainder of the season. Leishman has actually regressed since peaking in 2009. He earned about $1.8 million in 2009 and followed that with $1.4 million in 2010. Last season, he fell below $1 million for the first time since 2007, and it appears as though he's trending the wrong way. It seems highly unlikely that he'll revert to his 2008 form.
  8. Marc Leishman 2010–11 Preseason Outlook
    It hasn't taken Leishman long to catch onto playing on the PGA TOUR. In his first two seasons, he's finished 20th and 44th in the FedExCup standings. He's yet to find his first win, but he does have a runner-up finish in each of his first two years on the PGA TOUR. Leishman is long off the tee, but he'll need to work on his putting, which fell from 101st in 2009 to 119th last year, if he plans to improve upon his first two seasons.
  9. Marc Leishman 2009–10 Preseason Outlook
    Leishman's rookie season was a disappointment early on; but over the last four months of the season, Leishman earned more than $900K and grabbed his first runner-up finish at the BMW Championship. Considering Leishman's best golf was concentrated in a small window of time, it's hard to back him in a salary cap format. Still, he's probably worth a mid-round pick in standard drafts.
