2022–23 Fantasy Outlook
Pereira won three times on the Korn Ferry tour during the 2020-2021 season, which meant that he joined the PGA Tour with high expectations and for the most part, those expectations were met. The highlight and lowlight of his rookie season came at the PGA Championship, where he needed only a par to win his first major, but he failed to come through. Even without a win at the PGA Championship, his season on the whole was a success. Pereira's ceiling appears to be extremely high, but there's the looming prospect of him jumping ship to the LIV Tour. If he remains on the PGA Tour, he's in for a heck of season however.

T42 at FedEx St. Jude Championship
August 16, 2022
Pereira closed with a one-under 69 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Championship to finish five-under and tied for 42nd.
ANALYSIS
Pereira hit only five fairways in regulation during Sunday's final round, but he gained 1.25 strokes with the flat stick. He also ranked 16th among the field in SG: Approach at TPC Southwind en route to 18 total birdies. The rookie sits 41st in the FedExCup Playoffs and Eligibility Points List, so he'll tee it up at this week's BMW Championship.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2020
A three-time champion on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2020-21, Pereira's victories included back-to-back triumphs at the REX Hospital Open and the BMW Charity Pro-Am in June before his battlefield promotion to the big stage. The Chilean kept his foot on the gas all summer, notching top-6s at the Barbasol Championship and 3M Open ahead of his T4 effort at the Olympics in Tokyo. It wouldn't be surprising to see Pereira heavily in the mix for 2022 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year honors this time next year.
Pereira's trio of top-10s throughout the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour season included a win at the Country Club de Bogota Championship and a third-place result at the Panama Championship back in February. He cooled off a bit as the season wore on, but retained his position inside of the top 10 in the KFT Points list and finished fifth in par-4 scoring average.
