Kevin Tway
30-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Tway finished 85th on the FedEx points list last season, which was down 13 spots from the previous season, but the two seasons were pretty similar. Tway's earnings were also very similar from year to year, finishing right about $1.4 million each season. There are any number of ways to get to a number like that, but Tway got there by grinding it out every week. Two seasons ago, Tway had two top-3s, but last season, he had no such luck. He did, however, tee it up 31 times and he made the cut in 24 starts. Most promising, however, was the way that Tway finished last season. Tway made the cut in 12 of his final 13 starts last season and finished inside the top 25 in half of those starts. He also carded three top-10s in that span. Tway appears to be on the way up and as such, makes for a solid salary cap selection this season. Read Past Outlooks
Ties for 11th at Kapalua
January 7, 2019
Tway shot a two-under 71 in the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to finish in a tie for 11th place.
ANALYSIS
Tway took the early lead with a bogey-free seven-under 66 in round one. He was unable to keep pace with the likes of Xander Schauffele and Gary Woodland, however, as Tway closed out the week with three rounds of 71-or-worse. The 30-year-old ranked third in SG: Around and first in scrambling percentage. The only area Tway lost strokes in was on the greens. He will be in the field for the Sony Open next week. Tway finished T69 last season in Honolulu.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Tway's first go-round on the PGA Tour in 2014 was a complete disaster as he only earned about $167k and recorded no top-25s in 23 starts. His next try, last season, was much better, although it didn't appear as though he had improved much early in the season. Luckily for Tway, he got hot at the end of April and earned there consecutive top-5s, which pretty much made his season. He didn't accomplish much the rest of the season, but that just means there's room for improvement. Tway has the look of a guy who took a while to figure things out and is now ready to move forward, rather than a guy who is out of his league and happened to get lucky this past season.
Tway tied for third in a Web.com playoff event to secure his PGA Tour card. It's going to be hard to replicate that this season, as he's had zero top-25s in 32 career PGA starts. His claim to fame is being the son of 1986 PGA champion Bob Tway, and that's not likely to change this season.
