2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
There aren't many players in the history of the PGA Tour that accomplished more than Daniel Berger did in his first three seasons. In his first three years on the PGA Tour, Berger won two events, finished runner-up at four other events and earned over $10 million. He came out of the gates quickly in his rookie season, when he earned over $3 million and he improved upon that number in each of the two seasons that followed. Everything was looking up heading into the 2017-2018 season and then? Well, it's unknown exactly what happened to Berger last season, but there's no denying something was off. How does a guy play that well for three seasons, then lose most of his game? Maybe it was an injury, maybe it was something personal, whatever the reason, his resume is too good to give up on him after just one subpar season. Read Past Outlooks
T15 at TPC Twin Cities
July 8, 2019
Berger closed with a four-under 67 to put himself in a share of 15th place at the 3M Open.
ANALYSIS
Berger had an interesting front-nine on Sunday, carding four birdies, a bogey, and a double-bogey. The back-nine was much cleaner, as he made three birdies to post his fourth round in the 60's for the week. Berger ranked 35th in SG: Putting and 22nd in SG: Tee-to-green at the TPC Twin Cities. He sits 117th in the FedExCup standings after his fourth top-25 of the season. Berger will hope to make a move at the John Deere Classic.

2015
Three years into his career on the PGA Tour and it's pretty clear that Berger is the real deal. Berger wasted no time getting accustomed to the PGA Tour three seasons ago, as he earned more than $3 million in his rookie season. Many golfers in that position regress after a rookie season like that, but Berger actually improved. He proved that his first two seasons were no fluke last season as he posted his best season to date. Berger picked-up one win and was so close to another as he lost in a playoff to Jordan Spieth on his now famous bunker hole-out. Berger appears to be a guy that's going to continue to make strides, but the bar is set pretty high this year. That said, I think he makes a slight improvement, but not big enough to warrant a salary cap selection this season.
Berger was one of the fine rookie crop from 2014 that also played well during his second season on the PGA Tour. Berger traded two runner-ups in his rookie season for a win last year at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Perhaps the most impressive accomplishment from season one to season two was his cuts percentage. In rookie season, Berger hovered in the 55% range. Last season, he upped that to nearly 90%. Berger is certainly trending upward, which makes him in interesting salary cap option this year. In draft leagues, Berger should go in the third round.
Berger didn’t get in the winner’s circle during the 2014 Web.com Tour season but certainly came close, ending the year with a second and two thirds. The two thirds came in a three-week span, impressive stuff considering a MC was the middle result. Berger’s Web.com Tour Finals was a bit spotty, as he only played three of the four events, going T19-MC-65. As a result, his Reshuffle List position is hurt, as he’ll start the 2014-2015 PGA Tour season mid-pack, in 25th. The eighth longest hitter on tour who ranked 16th in greens in regulation this past season, Berger will need to make the rookie adjustment to the PGA Tour, get enough starts, and play well in those starts to have a successful season. It’s a lot to ask, but is doable if he plays well enough.
