Emiliano Grillo
27-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Grillo has spent three seasons on the PGA Tour and he's fared well in all three. He's also only 26, which means he should be entering his peak pretty soon. If that's the case, Grillo should be in for some really big seasons soon. Grillo's best season was his first, when he picked-up his first win and more than $3 million in earnings. Although he peaked in his rookie season three years ago, he hasn't exactly embarrassed himself the last two seasons. In his rookie season, Grillo struck the ball very well, but couldn't putt. He somehow figured out how to putt last season and he still struck the ball as well. His stats would indicate that he had a great season last year, but the earnings number would beg to differ. That said, if he continues to putt well, he'll get the results. Grillo comes at a steep price this season, but he just might be worth it. Read Past Outlooks
T58 finish at U.S. Open
June 18, 2019
Grillo ended up in a share of 58th place after shooting a two-over 73 in the final round of the U.S. Open.
Grillo began the tournament strong with a three-under 68 in round one, but after that he was a combined eight-over-par. The Argentinean was impressive with his iron play, ranking second in SG: Approach and T19 in GIR's. The putter on the hand was horrendous, as he lost the second-most strokes on the greens of all players that made the cut. Unfortunately for Grillo, his performance at Pebble Beach has been his season in a nutshell. He is currently sixth on tour in SG: Approach, but 200th in SG: Putting. Grillo's ball striking is the reason he has made 17-of-18 cuts, but the putter and short game is why he only has two top-10's. He will tee it up at the Travelers Championship.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Grillo was fantastic in his rookie season of 2015-16 , capturing his first win and amassing more than $3 million in earnings. While his performance last season was good, it was nowhere near the standard he set in his rookie season and therefore, it felt like he underachieved. It's always difficult to judge a guy with just two seasons under his belt, and two very different seasons to boot. The good thing here is that Grillo's price for the upcoming season is relatively cheap when you consider he topped the $3 million mark just two years ago and as such, he's a good salary cap option this season.
Grillo wasted no time in acclimating to the PGA Tour last season. In his first full season on the PGA Tour, Grillo picked-up one win, one runner-up showing and perhaps most impressive for a rookie, he made the cut in 22 of his 25 starts. The future is certainly bright for Grillo, but this is another case where the bar is simply set too high for the upcoming season. Whether it will be a standard regression or a sophomore slump, something will keep Grillo from improving significantly on his number from last season. In draft leagues, he's a risky third-round pick because of the unknown, but a safe fourth-round pick.
