Henrik Norlander

34-Year-Old Golfer
2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Norlander had a very up and down season in 2020-21. He recorded three top-10s and seven top-25s, but missed 14 cuts. The Swede's ball-striking was there for him, ranking in the top 30 in SG: approach, driving accuracy and GIR percentage, but his short game and putting need a lot of work. If he can improve on that at all, Norlander does present some value. Read Past Outlooks
Surges with Sunday 64
October 24, 2021
Norlander climbed into a share of 18th place after firing a six-under 64 in the final round of the ZOZO Championship.
Norlander's 64 was the second lowest round of the day, in which he caught fire on the back-nine with four birdies and a closing eagle over his final five holes. It was the only under-par for the Swede all tournament, albeit at a difficult Narashino Country Club setup. It's part of a hot stretch of golf for Norlander, who now has a top-20 result in three of his last six tournaments.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Swede reached a career-best 136th in the Official World Golf Ranking thanks to five straight finishes of T41 or better from the Travelers Championship through the 3M Open, but his 2019-20 season ended with a missed cut at the Northern Trust as he missed out on the BMW Championship by just six spots in the FedEx Cup standings. Norlander ranked top-15 on Tour in both driving accuracy and GIR percentage while also averaging an impressive 34 feet to the hole in proximity on his approaches. He could be a sleeper candidate moving forward, especially if he can figure out his scrambling.
Norlander fell off the PGA Tour's radar after tying for second at the 2016 RSM Classic, spending the next three seasons on the Korn Ferry Tour as he struggled to remain in a groove before winning the Wichita Open this June, propelling him to an 11th-place finish on the Regular Season Points List. The Swede also posted back-to-back top-4s at the Nashville Golf Open and KC Golf Classic earlier in the season, adding to his nine total top-25s in 21 events played. Norlander ranked top-10 on the KFT in ball striking, GIR percentage, driving accuracy and par-3 scoring.
Norlander went to Augusta State (yes, that Augusta) and played on the team that won a national championship in both 2010 and 2011. Now he gets to play on the PGA TOUR with his former teammate (Patrick Reed) and earn his way to Augusta's biggest attraction, The Masters. Norlander’s championship pedigree is even enhanced by the fact that he also went through all four stages of Q-school, so he knows how come up big when the heat is turned on. Look for Norlander to possibly get a win in 2013.
