Harold Varner III
29-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Varner III is a consistently decent golfer. In his three years on the PGA Tour, he's done nothing spectacular, yet he's managed to keep his card each season. He could spend the next 20 years playing like he has over the past three years and he'd make a lot of money, but once you've established yourself on the PGA Tour, you obviously want more. Does Varner III have another gear though? In three seasons on the PGA Tour, he has exactly zero top-3s. Not once has he played above his current level for a four-day span and threatened to win a PGA Tour event. That's a little troubling, especially in a salary cap format because that format is all about upside. As such, Varner III makes a much better draft-league option than a salary cap option this season.

Comes up short of ticket to East Lake
August 18, 2019
Varner closed with an even-par 72 on Sunday at the BMW Championship to finish one-over and alone in 68th place.
Varner's recent T3 at the Northern Trust was good enough to position him inside of the top-30 in the FedEx Cup standings heading into the BMW Championship, but he fell nine spots to No. 38 while only defeating one player in the field of 69 at Medinah this week. Varner will not advance to the TOUR Championship, but he ranks second in SG: Around-the-Green and 14th in SG: Tee-to-Green on the season. The 29-year-old only has one career top-3 result in 115 total starts on the PGA Tour, but he'll keep his card again for the 2019-2020 campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Varner III made his money last season by making cuts and grinding out top-25s. Varner III teed it up 31 times and made 19 cuts, along with seven top-25s, but only one top-10. In fact, his T10 at the Wyndham Championship was his best result all season. It wasn't all that dissimilar from his rookie season the year prior, except during his rookie campaign, Varner III earned four top-10s. Through two full seasons on the PGA Tour, Varner III has yet to find a top-3 and without those high-end finishes, it's difficult for anyone to jump up the rankings. Varner III will likely rebound this season to his rookie levels, but that's not enough improvement to warrant a salary cap selection.
Varner III quietly had a very strong rookie campaign last year. He made the cut in 18 of 28 events, and captured four top-10s. In all, he earned over $1.3 million and was safely inside the top-125 at the end of the season. It's hard to get a gauge on Varner because he didn't have a ton of success on the lower tours, so his play last season came as a bit of a surprise. The upside is unknown with Varner III, it could be very high, but at this point, it's just too risky to take a chance on him in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he can safely be taken in the ninth or 10th rounds.
