28-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Ortiz put together a decent rookie season in 2015, but he fell just short of retaining his card the following season. After two seasons away from the PGA Tour, he made it back this past season and accomplished just enough to retain his card for next season. To this point in his career, there hasn't been much upside and as such, he doesn't make for a good salary cap option this season. Read Past Outlooks
Collects 21 birdies at Houston Open
October 15, 2019
Ortiz closed with a three-under 69 on Sunday at the Houston Open to finish 11-under and tied for fourth.
Ortiz posted his second T4 of the season this past week in Houston, where he amassed 21 birdies while ranking second among the field in SG: Around-the-Green. He's also now made four consecutive cuts, ascending to 13th in the FedEx Cup standings during this brief, yet promising stretch. Ortiz will not be in the field for this week's CJ Cup.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Ortiz made 59 starts in two seasons on the PGA Tour before losing his card in 2016, making 30 cuts en route to 10 top-25s. He's spent the past two years on the Tour, however, making 36 out of 47 cuts in the process. In 2018 he finished second at the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic and would go on to record 11 top-25s. Ortiz also ranked top-25 in both ball striking and birdie average.
While there may be more accomplished rookies in terms of their track records before joining the Tour, there’s no one who had a better year on the Tour than Ortiz. Ortiz won three times, at the Panama Claro Championship, El Bosque Mexico Championship, and WinCo Foods Portland Open presented by Kraft, earning a Battlefield Promotion that makes him fully exempt on the PGA Tour for next season, allowing him to pick his own schedule. Statistically he finished fifth in the All-Around Ranking and sixth in total driving. He was overtaken in the overall regular season + finals money list by Adam Hadwin, which negated a shot of getting into The Players, but it was still a hugely successful campaign for Ortiz. Look for big things from Ortiz.
