32-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Taylor has spent five seasons on the PGA Tour and he's been remarkably consistent during that time. In four of those five seasons, he ranked between 102and and 129th on the FedEx points list. His best season was 2017, when he finished 84th on the list. His earnings have ranged from $600k to $1.2 million. Basically, he's steady, but there's really no upside. Not a great formula for salary cap purposes. Read Past Outlooks
Returning in Memphis
July 27, 2020
Taylor (undisclosed) is listed in the field for this week's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.
Taylor opted out of the 3M Open this past week after a missed cut at the Memorial Tournament, but he'll be back in action Thursday at TPC Southwind where he tied for 30th in 2018 before the event became part of the WGC series. Taylor currently ranks 32nd in the FedEx Cup standings thanks to his win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am earlier this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Last season was Taylor's fourth on the PGA Tour and it was much like his previous three as far as his standing on the FedEx points list. Taylor actually picked up a win in his rookie season of 2015, but even with that win, he barely managed to top $1 million. Since then, he's topped $1 million just once in three seasons. Last season was fairly uneventful as Taylor managed just two top-10s all season. He picked up a top-10 in his first start in the fall and another top-10 in the final event prior to the FedEx playoffs. That top-10 was huge for Taylor, however, as it locked up his card for this season. Although he has that card, Taylor hasn't shown enough in his four years on the PGA Tour to justify a salary cap selection this season.
Taylor earned his spot inside the top-100 by recording three top-10s in the span of seven events, but he flamed-out at the end of the season, missing the cut in three of his final five events. On the positive side, his four top-10s were a career high as was his 20 cuts made. Taylor appears to be trending upward, but the question is – how fast can he improve. His number from last season is not too much of a burden, so he's certainly a guy that you can take a chance on in salary cap leagues.
Taylor is exempt by virtue of winning the 2014 Sanderson Farms, which is looking like an aberration. He had only one top-10 last season, in the alternate-field Puerto Rico Open. Nothing indicates a more successful season ahead.
Of the guys who made it through via the Tour Finals, Taylor might have the best story of them all. Dewsweeping in one of the first groups out, Taylor shot a 63 on the Dye Valley course at TPC Sawgrass in the final round of the Tour Championship to clinch his card, capping off a season in which he had no top-5 finishes but three top-30 finishes in the Tour Finals that gave him enough money to get a PGA Tour card. 11 missed cuts in 24 starts certainly doesn’t have a nice look to it, and a Reshuffle List of 34th will make the road tougher, but that 63 did show that this guy has a lot of moxie.
