Entering the 2012 season, the hype surrounding Cauley was much like the hype surrounding Rahm and DeChambeau entering last season. Cauley didn't disappoint either as he posted six top-10s on his way to more than $1.7 million in earnings. What happened after that season though is a mystery. Over the next three seasons, Cauley missed 27 of 57 cuts and the jury was again out on his skills. He put some of those questions to rest last season and he again resembled the guy who played so well in 2012, but his ceiling is still unclear. With that in mind, Cauley carries a little too much risk and not quite enough reward this season.

  2. Bud Cauley 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Entering the 2012 season, the hype surrounding Cauley was much like the hype surrounding Rahm and DeChambeau entering last season. Cauley didn't disappoint either as he posted six top-10s on his way to more than $1.7 million in earnings. What happened after that season though is a mystery. Over the next three seasons, Cauley missed 27 of 57 cuts and the jury was again out on his skills. He put some of those questions to rest last season and he again resembled the guy who played so well in 2012, but his ceiling is still unclear. With that in mind, Cauley carries a little too much risk and not quite enough reward this season.
  3. Bud Cauley 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    After earning nearly $100k per start in an abbreviated 2011 season, Cauley quickly became a hot prospect. That momentum continued through the following season as he pulled-in over $1.7 million in earnings, but somewhere between that season on the following season, Cauley lost his game. Cauley spent the following two seasons just trying to crack the top-125 in earnings (failing both times) and it wasn't until last season that he finally started to put his game back together. It remains to be seen if Cauley can get back to his 2012 level, but the way he finished last season is promising; all of which makes Cauley an intriguing option in salary cap leagues this season. In draft leagues, Cauley should be drafted near round 10.
  4. Bud Cauley 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Cauley is a rarity among the top 50: He’s played the last three seasons on the PGA Tour, this past season finishing 143rd in the point standings, and regained his card by winning the Web.com Tour finals opener. But after missing the cut the next week, he underwent surgery to repair the labrum in his left shoulder. So even though he’s among the most-tested of the new grads – 38th in the FEC point standings in 2012 -- he will miss 4-6 months. He starts out fourth in the priority rankings, but it’s hard to miss that much time and succeed.
  5. Bud Cauley 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Four made cuts to end his 2013 PGA Tour season weren't enough to spare Cauley a trip to The Finals to save card.
  6. Bud Cauley 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    After a late-season surge as a non-member in 2011, a lot was expected of Cauley in 2012, and he delivered. Cauley missed his fare share of cuts (seven of 28 events played), but for the most part, he remained pretty steady the entire year. While Cauley isn't a must at this price, he's pretty darn close. There's no reason to think he'll regress this season, and his upside is tremendous, so he's as good a pick as you'll find in this range. Cauley might go a little early in draft leagues because he was highly touted last season, but the fourth round is probably where he should be slotted.
  7. Bud Cauley 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    How's this for exclusive company, last season Cauley became the sixth player in PGA Tour history to earn his card in summer and fall after leaving college and turning pro. The other five are Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Gary Hallberg, Justin Leonard and Ryan Moore. As a non-member, Cauley earned more than the 125th person on the money list, which means starting in January, he's a member of the PGA Tour. We've seen situations similar to this before and it doesn't always play out like you'd expect, but the future sure looks bright for Cauley.
  8. Bud Cauley 2010–11 Preseason Outlook
    21-year old Cauley, a rookie non-PGA Tour member, earned enough money through the McGladrey Classic, October 16, 2011, to safely project his position would be 112th on the final PGA Tour money list thus earning a 2012 PGA Tour playing card. He is the sixth player to do so.
