Past Fantasy Outlooks
Noren came to the PGA Tour last season via the European Tour and he arrived with a lot of hype. Though he failed to win on the PGA Tour last season, he lived up to that hype for the most part. Noren made the cut in 14 of 18 starts, posted 10 top-25s and three top-3 finishes. Noren is 36 years old, so he's not among the young crop that is taking over the PGA Tour, but he's still got plenty of years left to make a mark and if he continues to play like he did last season, it won't be long before he picks-up his first PGA Tour win. He comes with a hefty price tag this season, but Noren has the ability to make a significant improvement upon his number from last season. He'll have to win somewhere to do so, but he's certainly capable of doing that.
Noren missed only three cuts worldwide last season, but they came at the deep-field Masters, U.S. Open and Scottish Open. On the other hand, he captured the BMW PGA Championship, carded T6s at the Open Championship and the European Masters and a T10 at the Players Championship. Ranked 14th in the world, the Swede is fifth in the Race to Dubai. His 424 non-member FedEx Cup Points equaled Luke Donald, who was 107th on the points list. It seems reasonable for Noren to surpass last season's earnings significantly.
