Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Tom Hoge
Distance will be the name of the game at the PGA Championship, so it should shock no one that the longest hitter of all-time, Bryson DeChambeau, leads Len Hochberg's list of contenders for the Wanamaker Trophy.
Ryan Pohle nailed a top-10 wager in each of the last two tournaments, and he's willing to bet Charl Schwartzel will make that three in a row this week.
Cameron Smith has found success in this event before, and Len Hochberg believes the duo of Smith and Marc Leishman will do the same in this week's contests on DraftKings.
Daniel Berger had no trouble putting a smile on his face after taking home the title at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Dustin Johnson was the most expensive player in the annual RotoWire staff golf league over Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy, but fewer top golfers stood out in a format that gives a guide for season-long leagues.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Hoge's first three seasons on the PGA Tour were a complete grind. He failed to crack the top-125 in any of those three seasons and he topped-out at $690k in earnings in 2015. The two seasons following his rookie season of 2015 saw a decline in his overall numbers, but last season he bounced-back and set a career-high in earnings. That career-high in earnings was due in large part to a solo-third at the Sony Open in January. The problem is, that 3rd-place finish was his only top-10 last season. Hoge has every right to improve again this season, but you don't want to bet on a guy who might get better. With a floor well below his price tag and a ceiling that doesn't look much higher than $1 million, Hoge is not a good salary cap option this season.
Hoge has now failed to finish top-125 in the FedExCup standings for three consecutive years, but earned his PGA Tour card back for the upcoming 2017-18 season thanks to a top-25 performance in the Web.com Tour Finals. This past season he struggled mightily off the tee, ranking outside of the top-150 in both driving distance and driving accuracy. He'll look to improve upon his 10 made cuts throughout his 2017-18 campaign.
Hoge had two top-10s, T9s at RSM and Valero, but 12 missed cuts in 26 starts doomed any realistic chance to keep his PGA Tour card for 2016-17. Out of the conditional category he'll get some starts here and a lot on the Web.com Tour, and a chance to fix all aspects of his game. His strokes gained-total ranking was a poor 147th.
Hoge used the Web.com Tour Finals to seal his card for the 2014-2015 PGA Tour season after failing to get a top-10 finish on the Web.com Tour until July and having no top-5 finish until his third at the Chiquita Classic, the second Finals event. Overall he went T53-3-T22-T52 over the four Finals events, and will look to take that momentum into the fall. On the flipside, he’s not overly impressive statistically, and the lack of a top-10 for the first half of the Web.com Tour season could spell trouble on the big stage. Fantasy owners need to be patient and see how Hoge plays.
