Bronson Burgoon
33-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Burgoon posted a career-high $1,179,616 in 2017-18 and finished 111th to 135th in three consecutive full seasons on the PGA Tour. A runner-up at the 2018 CIMB Classic and another fifth-place finish were not enough to retain status without an appearance in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, as those were his only two finishes inside the top 30 in 20 starts. Burgoon ranked 54th or better in both GIR percentage and driving accuracy on the PGA Tour during the 2018-19 campaign, but he also finished the season at an elite ranking of eighth in proximity from over 200 yards. The 32-year-old was also nearly 100 positions worse in SG: Total. Burgoon is a boom-or-bust pick in salary cap formats for the 2019-20 season. Read Past Outlooks
T38 in Fort Worth
June 14, 2020
Burgoon fired a three-under 67 on Sunday at the Charles Schwab Challenge to finish five-under and tied for 38th.
ANALYSIS
Burgoon, who had withdraw from the Honda Classic in late February due to a neck injury, appears to have made a full recovery as he carded four consecutive scores of even-par 70 or better this past week at Colonial CC. Burgoon lost 1.354 strokes off the tee as he averaged just shy of 295 yards in average driving distance, but he hit 70.83 percent of the greens in regulation throughout the tournament. He'll now make his second career RBC Heritage appearance, while he resides just inside the top-100 of the FedEx Cup standings at No. 96.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2016
Burgoon just missed the top 125 during his rookie season two years ago, but he parlayed his limited playing status into full privileges for this season. A top-10 at the Quicken Loans National and a runner-up at the John Deere are to thank for Burgoon's spot in the top 125, but outside of those two finishes, he didn't get much done. In fact, Burgoon missed more cuts than he made last season, something that isn't often said about guys who finish inside the top 100 on the FedEx points list. On the bright side, Burgoon has shown the ability to finish inside the top-25, but without more consistency, he's just not a good salary cap option.
Burgoon's strong finishes at the last two events of the Web.com Tour Finals clinched him his PGA Tour card for the first time since the 2015-16 season. Burgoon's second full season on the PGA Tour this year will hopefully bring him his first top-10, but beyond that his expectations are likely quite low, and so are ours despite his solid driving and iron play. Avoid Burgoon in salary cap leagues and in draft leagues hold off until after the 10th round.
Burgoon missed 11 cuts in 27 starts in 2015-16 on the PGA Tour, including in three of his last four starts of the season. Part of the problem he'll seek to fix with some extra time off is a balky short game that left him 181st in strokes gained – around the green.
