Past Fantasy Outlooks
Uihlein is now 30, and the promise of a few years ago clearly is not coming. His earnings have gone significantly downward the past three seasons. He might see a little boost this season only because last season was so bad.
Uihlein's first season as a PGA Tour member in 2017-18 was very solid, finishing 64th in the FedExCup standings and gaining nearly $1.8 million. 2018-19 was a different story, as he made just 14-of-29 cuts and two top-10's. The putter was pretty solid last year, but he needs to become a more consistent ball striker if he wants to be able to compete more regularly. Uihlein is a boom-or-bust selection in salary cap formats.
Uihlein is the rare European who decided to play full time on the PGA Tour and actually succeeded - except he's not a European. Uihlein was a member of the European Tour prior to his first year on the PGA Tour, but he's American. It's actually an important distinction because it gives us a better idea of how many events he'll play. Most first-year players that come from the European Tour will split their time between tours and play somewhere around the minimum of 15 events, but Uihlein played 26 times last season. The number of events plays a huge part in projection his earnings for this season because as long as he keeps a similar schedule to last season, it's fair to expect a similar, if not better output that last season. With a full year on the PGA Tour under his belt, expect Uihlein to show a significant improvement this season.
A solid player on the European Tour since 2013, Uihlein made the most of his opportunity to play in the Web.com Tour Finals by winning the first leg, the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. His $180,000 in earnings from the victory sealed his full-time spot on the PGA Tour, where he notched three top-25s in just seven events last season. The promising talent has plenty of length off the tee and a good putter, so there's potential to shine given a full schedule. Uihlein is worth a pick in the 11th or 12th round of draft leagues and perhaps a higher-risk option worth taking in salary cap leagues.
