Past Fantasy Outlooks
Van Rooyen first caught some attention by playing well at the majors, but he hadn't accomplished much on the PGA Tour until the 2020-21 season. More accurately, he hadn't accomplished much on the PGA Tour until late last season. Van Rooyen caught fire during the final two months of the season and parlayed that into a spot in the Tour Championship. He landed in the 23rd spot on the FedEx list, but he earned little more than $2 million. There's certainly room for improvement this season, but the jury is still out on just how good he is.
Van Rooyen grabbed some attention in 2019 when he scored a top-10 at the PGA Championship and a top-20 at the Open Championship and when he earned a T3 at the WGC Mexico Championship early this past season, expectations began to rise. That was the high-point of his season, however, as he failed to find any traction the rest of the way. van Rooyen will turn 31 this season, which places him in the prime of his career, but he's only recently found his footing on the PGA Tour and it might take a little more time to show everything he has. This upcoming season will also be his first full season on the PGA Tour and it's always best to temper expectations for foreign players in their first year in the states full time.
