Jon Rahm
24-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
There aren't many players on the PGA Tour that could finish inside the top-25 on the FedEx list and consider the season a disappointment, but that's exactly the case for Rahm. Rahm, by most accounts, is destined for greatness on the golf course and in this day and age where greatness emerges immediately, the fact that he's fallen behind some of his peers is a little concerning. The good news for Rahm however is that he's only 23. All of these "young guns" on the PGA Tour right now. Rahm is younger than just about all of them. He has plenty of time to figure everything out. For starters, he needs to work on his temper, which will continue to hamper his progress, especially at the majors, but it's not like he's in uncharted waters there, many before have had similar issues. Rahm will get it figured out and at his current price, it might be worth betting on him figuring it out this season. Read Past Outlooks
Top-10 despite struggling on greens
January 7, 2019
Rahm posted a four-under 69 on Sunday at the Sentry Tournament of Champions to finish in a tie for eighth place.
ANALYSIS
Rahm had to feel confident this week after winning the Hero World Challenge a few weeks ago and a runner-up finish at Kapalua last year. The Spaniard struck the ball very well this time around, finishing top-six in SG: Off-the-tee, SG: Approach, SG: Tee-to-green, and GIR's. Where he would have liked to have seen more was with the flat stick, as Rahm ranked 28th of 33 players in SG: Putting. Last year Rahm won three times, but just once in an official PGA Tour event. Safe to say a player of his talent level will be expecting a few more wins in 2019, with more than a couple shots in majors.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Rahm came in with very high expectations this season, but somehow, he managed to exceeded them. Rahm came on the scene late during the 2015-16 season and it was clear that he had a lot of talent. The funny thing about talent though is, unless you have the mental fortitude to back it up, it won't get you very far. Rahm still needs to work on a few things, namely his temper in big spots, but there's no reason to doubt him going forward. Even though his number for this season is very high, he's still worth a look in salary cap formats as he has enough game to significantly improve this season.
Rahm made quite a splash in his first foray onto the PGA Tour and will now have a full year to perform. We expect some good things, but also some speed bumps for the promising player. Don't get too hyped up; he'll be playing with the big boys on a regular basis now. Let's wait and see before we enshrine him in the golf hall of fame.
