Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Kevin Tway
The first PGA event since March begins Thursday! Jordan Spieth did not get much going before the break, but he plays Colonial as well as anyone, and is worth a look in all kinds of fantasy formats.
Justin Thomas was the most expensive player in the annual RotoWire staff golf auction, in a mild surprise over Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy, in a format that gives a guide for season-long leagues.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
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.
