Past Fantasy Outlooks
Finau has been a solid player since joining the PGA Tour in 2015, but last season he took his game to another level. Finau averaged over $2 million in earnings over his first three seasons on the PGA Tour, but last season he blew that number out of the water with over $5.6 million in earnings. The strange thing is, he managed to put up his career-best numbers without a victory. He does have a win on his resume, but that came two seasons back. Last season he merely picked-up three runner-up finishes. Those runner-ups add up however and when you make nearly every cut, those checks add up as well. Finau's best golf is likely still ahead of him, but he doesn't have much upside left in salary cap leagues this season. In draft leagues he's a solid second-rounder.
Finau entered the 2015 season with a lot of hype and he didn't disappoint as he topped the $2 million mark in his rookie season. He backed that up with another solid season the year following and he did the same last season, with yet another solid showing. Last year was actually Finau's best and there's a chance that it's part of a progression that will continue this season. That's a big leap of faith however as he posted a high number last season, but he's got the game to get, so he deserves some consideration in salary cap leagues this season.
Finau has made quite an impression in his first two seasons on the PGA Tour. Though he regressed a little last season, he still played a very-high level. Finau was more consistent during his rookie season, but he never found a win. That changed in his 2nd-season as he lost a bit of consistency, but picked up his first win. He's probably OK with that trade. With a proven record of consistency in year-one and a win under his belt in year-two, Finau seems ready to take the next step. As such, he's definitely worth a look in salary cap formats this year. In drafts, he's a fifth- or sixth-round pick.
Finau is a former Big Break contestant – he finished second, losing in the championship match on season 12, Big Break: Disney Golf in 2009 – and will try to join Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey as the only Big Break alumni to win on the PGA Tour. He got to the PGA Tour by virtue of his victory at the Stonebrae Classic, which included middle rounds of 62-63, and four other top-10s. Averaging 310.3 yards off the tee and ranking ninth in the Web.com Tour All-Around Ranking, Finau is someone to watch in the fall because he ended the year on an up note: finishing T19-T46-T6-T14 over the course of the Web.com Tour Finals. If he can acclimate himself quickly to life on the PGA Tour, look for him to contend early.
