Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Brandon Hagy
The RotoWire golf crew projected 2021-22 earnings for more than 200 golfers who have PGA Tour cards for this season. Will Justin Thomas top the Official Money list this season?
The RotoWire golf crew ranks the 2021-22 golfers with projected earnings and season outlooks. How high can Jon Rahm fly?
Si Woo Kim has had a lot of success at Sedgefield CC in recent years, and that makes him Greg Vara's pick to lead the charge in the final event of the regular season.
Matthew Wolff has been more down than up this season, but he has had excelled in this event, and Len Hochberg likes his chances to come through in this week's contests on DraftKings.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Although Hagy sits outside the top 300 in the OWGR, his talent is at a much higher level. He's one of the longest hitters on tour with a solid short game to compliment. His iron play has been the aspect of his game that's held him back. He can be viewed as a cheap option with much more option with the other golfers in his range.
Hagy hit his stride as a rookie throughout the 2016-17 season when he made 17 cuts and racked up over $850k in earnings thanks in part to six top-25s, but a wrist injury cut his 2018 campaign short and he then made just one cut in 13 starts during the 2019 season. He'll be back on the PGA Tour despite finishing outside of the top-250 in the FedEx Cup standings, however, having notched back-to-back top-5s during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship and Albertsons Boise Open. Hagy ranked third in driving distance and 27th in SG: Off-the-Tee back in 2017, so there is ball-striking upside upon his return to full health now.
Hagy didn't have a great rookie season, but he accomplished goal number one of retaining his playing privileges for the upcoming season. Nagy only managed one top-10 all season, but on the bright side, he did make the cut in 17 of 26 starts. Nagy is a bomber, he ranked 3rd on the PGA Tour in driving distance, but 180th in driving accuracy. The good news is, it's much easier to add accuracy than add distance. If Nagy can find some accuracy, it will help him hit more greens, which he ranked 125th last season. Nagy has the tools to improve greatly this season, it's just a matter of whether he does it or not.
Five top-10s and seven top-25s gave Hagy a PGA Tour card, the best finish being a T3 at the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae in July. A long hitter, he ranked second in driving average at 321.7 yards per drive, first in eagles and 11th in scoring average. If he can control his distance – something Tony Finau and Justin Thomas have had to figure out, for example – he's certainly got the length to contend on the PGA Tour. Another key for him, which could lead to early struggles, is working out a gameplan for each course and where his length fits in.
