In the three seasons prior to this year, Merritt had posted a top-3 finish, but this season ended with zero top-3s and just one top-10. As a result, Merritt had to earn his way through the Web.com Tour Finals to retain his card for a fifth straight year. Going forward it's hard to see Merritt breaking $1 million in earnings in 2017-18, but he'll likely top last year's measley total, which was his worst total since the 2011 season. He's not draftable in salary cap leagues and should go beyond the 10th round in drafts.

  2. Troy Merritt 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    In the three seasons prior to this year, Merritt had posted a top-3 finish, but this season ended with zero top-3s and just one top-10. As a result, Merritt had to earn his way through the Web.com Tour Finals to retain his card for a fifth straight year. Going forward it's hard to see Merritt breaking $1 million in earnings in 2017-18, but he'll likely top last year's measley total, which was his worst total since the 2011 season. He's not draftable in salary cap leagues and should go beyond the 10th round in drafts.
  3. Troy Merritt 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Merritt has spent five seasons on the PGA Tour and in four of those five seasons, he's finished under $1 million in earnings. The lone year he topped that mark, 2015, he ended-up just over $2 million, but that was due in large part to a win at the Quicken Loans National. Merritt is still fairly young, so he's got time to get everything figured-out, but that's not the type of golfer that should be on a salary cap team. In drafts, he'll go after the 10th-round.
  4. Troy Merritt 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Merritt's third season on the PGA Tour was his best, but considering he failed to make even $900k, that's not saying much. His rookie season was fairly productive, but his second season was a disaster. Merritt rebounded well in his third season, but if this is as good as it gets, then he's going to spend his career fighting to stay alive. As such, he's not a good option in salary cap leagues, mainly due to his limited upside. In draft leagues he'll likely go undrafted.
  5. Troy Merritt 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Merritt played his best golf early in Web.com season last year, earning five of his six top-10s. He was consistent in 2013 but only one top-3 finish and no wins.
  6. Troy Merritt 2010–11 Preseason Outlook
    In his rookie season on the PGA TOUR, Troy Merritt grabbed the final spot inside the top 125. Merritt used a strong fall finish to earn those last few dollars, but his season was made by a third-place finish at the Zurich Classic. In his first year on the PGA TOUR, Merritt ranked 36th in putting average. He also ranked 32nd in birdies per hole. Merritt has some potential, but after such an erratic opening season, it's probably better to wait on him.
  7. Troy Merritt 2009–10 Preseason Outlook
    Merritt will be on a lot people's draft board because of his win at Q School, but he was not really that successful on the Nationwide Tour in 2009. Merritt won an event in and the $117,000 earned for that event represented 77% of his earnings. Tread cautiously with the former player at Boise State.
