1. Jordan Spieth
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$9,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $12,030,465

There isn't much that anyone can add to what's already been said about Spieth's 2015 season. He led the PGA Tour in wins, majors, money, FedEx points, etc. ... Perhaps the most impressive showing though was his win at the Tour Championship in September. Sure, consecutive majors and almost a third is very impressive, but all of those showings came during a stretch where Spieth was unquestionably on top of his game. His win at the Tour Championship followed a stretch where he's missed two of his previous three cuts. Spieth will enter the 2015-16 as the best player in the world and should be the top pick in a draft, but he's simply set the bar too high to take in a salary cap league this year.

2. Jason Day
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$9,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $9,403,330

Jason Day made quite a run near the end of the 2014-15 season, but he came up just short of making the Player of the Year conversation a tough one. Had Day won the Tour Championship and along with it, the FedEx Cup Playoffs, that would have given him six wins, including a major and that would have made POY discussions very interesting. As it was, Day ran out of gas the final week of the PGA Tour season and never really threatened. The fact that he was ever in contention for POY is quite amazing considering the season that Jordan Spieth had though. Day picked-up five wins in all, including his first major at the PGA Championship. The future is bright for Day and he should be heavily considered for the second spot in a draft format, but like Spieth, his 2014-15 earnings number is just too high for a salary cap league.

3. Rory McIlroy
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$9,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $4,863,312

It's hard to call a season in which you earned nearly $5 million a complete disappointment, but with no major wins and no FedEx Cup title, that's exactly what it was. Perhaps more disappointing for McIlroy was the ascension of Jordan Spieth to the top of the golf world. McIlroy entered the 2014-15 season as the unquestioned best player in the world, but after Spieth rattled-off consecutive majors, the tide began to shift. Entering this season, Spieth will hold the crown, but as we've seen time and time again, it's often the hunter in golf that gets the spoils. The 2015-16 is going to be personal for McIlroy, he'll want to show the world that he's still the best and if he brings his "A" game, then he can ascend to the top of the golf world, if not, well there's simply too much talent out there to win without his game. McIlroy and Spieth are probably 1-2 in any draft conversation, but unlike Spieth, McIlroy is also a good salary cap option this season.

4. Rickie Fowler
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$7,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $5,773,430

Prior to the 2014-15 season, Rickie Fowler was still that guy with all that potential, but after picking-up a couple big wins last year, he's finally that guy who's living up to the potential. The 2013-2014 season was all about his play at the majors and although it was spectacular, he failed to seal the deal time after time. That wasn't an issue for Fowler during the 2014-15 season as Fowler won The Players and 2nd FedEx Playoff event. Fowler is just below the Big-Three right now, but he has the potential to join that group this year if he continues to improve. With that in mind, he's potentially a top-5 selection in draft formats, but his prospects in a salary cap format are not quite as clear. He has the potential to improve significantly on his 2014-15 number, but it's going to take quite an effort.

5. Bubba Watson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$6,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $6,876,797

The 2014-15 season was Bubba Watson's most complete to date. No, he did not pick-up another major, but he played well from beginning to end. That consistency was a bit of a departure from the peaks and valleys that we became accustomed to over the years with Watson. It's certainly a good sign for the future as now that Watson has proven he can play just about anywhere, he'll be a factor each and every week during the upcoming season. Watson is firmly entrenched in the second-tier of golfers just below the big-three of Spieth, Day and McIlroy, but whether he's at the top or in the middle of that group is debatable. His price tag in salary cap leagues is too high for this season however.

6. Dustin Johnson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$6,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $5,509,467

The 2014-15 season for Johnson can be described in four words, what might have been. It's was Johnson's three-putt on the 72nd-hole at the 2015 U.S. Open that formed the storyline for the entire season. If he made the first putt, then there's no quest for three-in-a-row from Spieth and there's a chance Spieth's season doesn't look nearly as good on the whole. He didn't make that first putt, or the second for that matter and the rest is history. DJ enters this season at the crossroads. No, he's not near the end of his career and no, he's not about to go in the tank if he doesn't play well this season, but if he doesn't get a major soon, he may never get one. It wasn't too long ago that we all just assumed that Sergio Garcia would eventually get a major and now that seems unlikely. Johnson has as much talent as anyone on the PGA Tour, but it's the space between the ears that he needs to work on. He's definitely a first-round selection in drafts, but his unpredictability makes his price too high in salary cap leagues.

7. Justin Rose
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$5,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $5,462,677

There are few players on the PGA Tour that play more consistently at a higher-level than Justin Rose. The question for Rose is if he can find an extra-gear to keep up with the likes of Spieth, Day and McIlroy? Whether he finds that gear, he's going to be a top-10 player for the foreseeable future. Rose was unable to snatch a major in 2015, but he played very well on the biggest stages. If not for Spieth, Rose might have captured multiple majors in 2015, but as it was, Rose had to settle for second-fiddle time and time again. Rose is certainly capable of winning another major, his play during the majors last year is proof of that, but as a whole, the question will be, can he significantly improve upon his performance from last season. The risk is fairly low with Rose, but the reward, at least at this number, may not be all that high either in salary cap leagues.

8. Hideki Matsuyama
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$5,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,758,619

Matsuyama doesn't get mentioned often when talking about the youth movement on the PGA Tour, but that's likely due to his nationality and not his ability. Matsuyama is getting better every year and he looks to be a staple on the PGA Tour for many years to come. It's tough to find upside in a guy who already banked almost $4 million last year, but Matsuyama has the ability to crush that number if everything falls into place this season. Unlike a few other players that finished in the top-15 on the money list last year, Matsuyama should definitely be considered in the early-2nd round. He also makes an interesting selection in salary cap leagues as well.

9. Brandt Snedeker
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$5,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,698,056

Another solid season for Snedeker in 2015, but there seems to be so much more than he's leaving on the table. Snedeker earned $2 million more last year then he did the year prior, so there's no way his 2014-15 could be called a failure, but again, the potential is there to make so much more. Snedeker, if healthy, is pretty reliable, so there isn't much risk involved, and his upside is much higher than what he produced last season, so he makes for an interesting salary cap option this year. In draft leagues he should go somewhere in the 2nd-round.

10. Zach Johnson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$4,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $4,801,487

Lost in a all the Spieth/Day hoopla last season was the overall play of Zach Johnson. You remember Zach, the guy who won the Open Championship? Not only did he win the third major of the year, but he also finished in the top-10 in 40% of his starts. We've seen this before from Johnson, he's an incredible talent, but we've also seen him play extremely well one year, then not so much the following. Johnson has been a pretty steady player throughout his career, so his valleys aren't as low as others, but it will be tough for Johnson to duplicate the numbers he put up this season. With that said, he still can be considered in the late-1st-round and early 2nd-round in draft leagues. In salary cap leagues he's not a great option.

11. Henrik Stenson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$4,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $4,755,070

Henrik Stenson looks like the perfect golfer. He's got a great swing and perhaps more importantly, he has the perfect demeanor. Never too high, never too low, nothing seems to affect him. However, there's something missing from Stenson's game, something that will likely prevent him from ascending to the top of the PGA Tour and that's a killer instinct. Stenson's season was very solid, but it could have been so much better if he'd been able to close when he had the opportunity. Stenson isn't going to fade away anytime soon, but with so much talent on the PGA Tour now, it's hard to imagine he'll crack the top-5 in the coming years again. Stenson should be targeted in the late-1st to early-2nd rounds. In salary cap formats, Stenson doesn't appear to have much upside at this price.

12. J.B. Holmes
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$4,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $4,037,430

Holmes got off to a great start last season, but it was a pace that he simply couldn't keep up throughout the season. Though he stumbled through much of the summer, it was nice to see a strong finish from Holmes as he earned top-10s at the final-two FedEx events. Holmes is mot too far removed from brain surgery, so it's possibly that he's still adjusting to life post-surgery. If that's the case, then he probably hasn't peaked yet. With that said, he set the bar pretty high for those thinking about him in salary cap leagues, but in draft leagues he's a solid 2nd-rounder.

13. Robert Streb
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$4,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,947,424

Streb took full advantage of the weaker fields in the early portion of the 2014-15 schedule on his way to a career year. Through Streb did most of his damage early in the year (five top-10s in his first eight starts), he did manage to finish the season on a high-note with 12 consecutive cuts made. Streb is an interesting case entering the 2014-15 season. He set the bar pretty high last season, but he seems capable of much more. His price in salary cap leagues is certainly steep, but if you are looking for a golfer that won't be on many teams and has a lot of upside, Streb may be your guy. In draft leagues, Streb should be considered in rounds two and three.

14. Jimmy Walker
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$4,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $4,521,350

From October-February, there aren't many players on the PGA Tour that are better than Jimmy Walker, but once the season gets going, Walker is sometimes hard to find. He managed to play well for most of the 2013-2014, but that wasn't the case last year as Walker used up all of his best finishes early in the season. Walker seems to have as much talent as anyone on the PGA Tour, but with all of these young guns out here, I wonder if Walker can keep up. Walker is a safe pick in draft formats, he's not going to go in the tank, but his upside, especially outside those early months, may be limited. Walker should go in the 2nd-round in draft formats, but his upside in salary cap formats just isn't enough to validate a selection.

15. Brooks Koepka
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$4,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,571,900

Koepka played extremely well early-on in the 2014-15 season, but he failed to accomplish much during the heart of the season. It's like a broken record with a lot of these guys and perhaps it's indicative of how the new schedule is set up. There are going to be some guys who play well in the fall and winter, but don't do much outside that stretch and there will be those that play well in the spring and summer. Koepka has the ability to play well the entire season and he's still learning, so he might be worth the risk in a salary cap format. In draft leagues he's a solid 3rd-rounder.

16. Patrick Reed
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$4,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,590,566

Reed was another on the long list of golfers that made a lot of noise early in the 2014-15 season, but failed to do much after the first few months of 2015. Reed will likely never live down his comments about being a top-5 player in the world unless he ever gets there, but if he continues to play like he's played the past couple years, then he'll be fine. Reed likely believes he's a top-5 player, because at times, he looks that good, but the high-level consistency just isn't there yet. Reed remains a solid 2nd-rounder in draft leagues, but probably isn' t worth the risk in salary cap leagues.

17. Matt Kuchar
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$4,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,774,170

While many players that finished near the $3 million mark last season set career-highs, Kuchar actually had his worst season since 2009. While Kuchar may not be the guy who earned over $5.6 million in 2013, he certainly isn't the player that struggled for much of the 2014-15 season. There's no particular reason that Kuchar's production fell-off last season, so we simply have to chalk it up to an off year. Kuchar will rebound this season, the only question is, to what effect? A $4 million season is certainly reasonable for a guy who lived above that number for the better part of the past six seasons. Kuchar is an excellent option in salary cap leagues and should go in the 2nd round in draft leagues.

18. Paul Casey
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,488,311

After years of showing brief signs of a comeback, Casey finally put it all together in 2015. Casey is no stranger to success on the PGA Tour, but his influence may have been overstated a bit, meaning that his name has been well-known for years, but his accomplishments, at least on the PGA Tour haven't quite lived-up to the notoriety. Through the 2014-15 season, Casey still has just one win on the PGA Tour. That's the bad news, the good news is, he has five runner-ups since 2009 and two of them came last year. Casey appears to have everything in order now, so his numbers from last year should be the norm. Casey is a solid 3rd-round selection in drafts, but is a bit overpriced in salary cap formats.

19. Louis Oosthuizen
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,251,174

The 2014-15 season was very productive for Oostuizen, but on the whole, there's a sense that he left a lot on the table. Oosthuizen's closest calls came during the biggest event in 2015. A 2nd-place finish at the U.S. Open was followed by another 2nd-place finish at the Open Championship. If not for the exploits of Jordan Spieth, Oosthuizen may have picked-up another major last season. His season ended on a low-note however as an injury forced him to WD from the Tour Championship in September. Oosthuizen's prospects look good for the upcoming season as long as his injury issues are in the past. The question will be, can he improve upon those close-calls in 2015 or will he regress a bit. Whatever the case, he's a solid 3rd-rounder in drafts and a decent option in salary cap leagues.

20. Jim Furyk
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,732,664

Furyk finally got the monkey off his back with a win at the RBC Heritage and although he played well for the majority of the 2014-15, the way it ended was a little troubling. Furyk pulled-out of the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship with a wrist injury, which wouldn't be a big deal, except for the fact that he'll turn 46 in May of 2016 and those injuries don't heal like they do when you are in your 20s. Furyk has been way too consistent over the years to burn-out, but it's hard to imagine him getting any better at this stage of his career. Furyk will provide a couple close-calls this season, but in the end, he'll wind up right about where he finished last season. As such, he's now a late-2nd to early-3rd round pick in drafts and he's not a good option in salary cap leagues.

21. Charley Hoffman
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $4,041,089

When looking at the 2014-15 money list, the first, "wait a second" moment comes when you see Charley Hoffman in spot 11. It's not that Hoffman isn't a good player, it's just hard to remember what he did exactly during the 2014-15 season. A closer look reveals a productive, but not necessarily overly impressive season. His win came at the Mayakoba Classic, which is an opposite-field event and he missed the cut at the final-three majors of the season. Hoffman is a good player, but he's not a top-15 guy and as such, he shouldn't go until late-2nd or early-3rd round. Obviously he's not a good option in salary cap leagues either.

22. Danny Lee
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,965,933

Perhaps the most surprising performance of the season outside Spieth and Day was Danny Lee. No, he didn't reach the levels of the aforementioned names, but he also started much lower on the totem pole. Lee ended the 2013-2014 season in the 88th spot on the FedEx points list and he failed to reach even $800k in earnings, yet by the end of the 2014-15 season he was nearing the $4 million mark. While Lee had a great season and looks legit, there simply isn't enough of a track record to treat him as a top-20 guy right now. He's too much of a risk in salary cap formats and he should go well below his final spot on the money list in draft formats, somewhere in the 3rd round.

23. Kevin Kisner
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,567,939

Kisner's 2014-15 season was made during a three-month stretch from the and of April through the beginning of July where he earned five top-10s in eight starts on the PGA Tour. More impressive was that three of those top-10s were runner-up finishes. A couple concerns with Kisner though...first, entering this season he didn't have much of a track record on the PGA Tour, which in of itself isn't necessarily a black-mark, but coupled with the way he ended the 2014-15 season, there might be reason enough to fade him for the upcoming season. Kisner set the bar too high to be a reasonable salary cap selection this year, but he should go in either rounds three or four in a draft league.

24. Steven Bowditch
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,075,410

The 32-year-old Aussie took a few years to get accustomed to the PGA Tour, but the past two seasons have been an unqualified success. Bowditch picked-up his first win on the PGA Tour in 2014 and followed that up with another win during the 2015 calendar year. That's the good news, the bad news is, though Bowditch had a banner season last year, it was full or severe peaks and valleys. In-between a runner-up finish in October and a win in May was a disturbing stretch where he missed 10 cuts in 17 starts, a stretch that included five consecutive MC's. Bowditch is still on the way up, but the bar was set awfully high last season, a little too high to be selected in a salary cap format. As for draft leagues, look for Bowditch to go in the 4th-round.

25. Bill Haas
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,064,024

Haas seems perpetually stuck in-between good and great and unfortunately, it doesn't look like he's about to make a move in either direction anytime soon. When Haas took the FedEx Cup a few years ago, it looked like the beginning of something big and while he's played well each and every year since, he's yet to take his game to the next level. Haas has had an exceptional career, but after being at this for over a decade, it seems clear that while he'll have his moments, he's not destined to be a great player on the PGA Tour...just a really good one. With that in mind, his upside just isn't high enough to take in a salary cap format. In draft leagues, he's a safe pick somewhere in the 3rd-round.

26. Scott Piercy
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,780,027

In just a handful of years on the PGA Tour, Piercy has seen it all. He's had the highs of winning, three times to be exact, but he's also missed the cut in about a 1/3 of his starts since he picked-up his first win in 2011. The 2014-15 season was Piercy's finest as not only did he win, but he also picked-up a runner-up and a 3rd-place finish. That consistency is a good sign, but he did set a career-high in earnings last season, so his prospects in salary cap leagues aren't very promising. In draft leagues he should go in the 3rd or 4th round.

27. David Lingmerth
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,736,378

Lingmerth is a classic case of a guy who plays well in his rookie season, fails to follow it up with a strong sophomore season, but bounces back during his third season. It's a mouthful, but it's important to pay attention to golfers that fall into this category as they are often undervalued. Lingmerth's price tag entering last season was just $676k, and he finished the season with over $2.7 million in earnings. That's great for Lingmmerth, but not good for anyone who wants to take him on their salary cap team. Lingmerth is still on the way up, but as was the case after his rookie season, he's now priced too high for salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should go in the 4th or 5th round.

28. Ben Martin
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,717,305

As a 25-year-old rookie on the PGA Tour Martin struggled mightily, so much so that he lost his card and had to fight his way back through the Web.com Tour. His return to the PGA Tour in 2014 was a much different story as he easily cracked the $1 million mark in earnings. The 2014-15 season was a big season for Martin as he was going to go one of two ways. With over $2.7 million in earnings, he obviously took the ascending road. The question entering this season is, can he continue that upward trend? It won't be easy, but he seems capable of improving. Now for the bad news, he doubled his previous best in earnings last year, the odds of improving significantly again this year seems unlikely. As such, it's probably wise to pass on him in salary cap formats. In draft leagues he should go in the 4th or 5th round.

29. Sergio Garcia
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,670,229

Garcia's career, just like his game and his demeanor has been one wild ride since he first came upon the scene in the late 90s. Garcia first peaked in 2008 when he earned nearly $5 million, but the years that followed were filled with more questions than answers. Questions like, is he ever going to win a major and can he sustain a high-level of play for an entire season? The answer to both was no...for the most part, until a very impressive 2013-2014 campaign. What followed last season however was a bit of a disappointment. Yes, nearly $3 million in earnings was a bit of a disappointment. As for where he goes from here, well that's not an easy question to answer. He's not getting any younger, so it's doubtful that we'll see the guy from 2008 or 2013, but he's still got enough ability to finish somewhere in the $3-$4 million range. He's a decent salary cap option this year and should go in the 3rd round in draft leagues.

30. Justin Thomas
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,278,564

There wasn't much hype surrounding the 2014-15 crop of rookies, but there sure turned out to be a lot of production from this group. Thomas was at the forefront of that group as he earned an impressive seven top-10s. His consistency throughout the season was the main reason for his earnings of over $2 million last season. Though he failed to crack the top-3 at any event last season, his play on the whole was very solid. His lack of high-end finishes leaves his number for the upcoming season in a pretty good spot. He's an intriguing pick in salary cap leagues as his potential seems very high. In draft leagues he should be selected around the 4th or 5th round.

31. Tony Finau
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,095,186

Finau made the most of his rookie season on the PGA Tour and by the looks of it, he's got much more in store. Finau started the season on-fire, but as rookies often do, he fell into a bit of a rut during the middle of the season. Unlike most rookies however, he came back stronger than before and this soon to be sophomore looks like the real deal. With that said, he posted some solid numbers last season, so his price is high, but the upside is higher, so he's definitely worth a look in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should find his way into the 3rd or 4th round.

32. Webb Simpson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,046,260

Simpson has been trending downward for the most part since an incredible 2011 season when he earned over $6 million. Yes, his U.S. Open win came during this downward trend, so it's difficult to classify it as such, but from an earnings perspective, he's struggled to live up to the standard he set in 2011. He's also struggled to find success at the majors since 2012 as well. It's not all doom and gloom for Simpson though, because his number is in a very enticing spot entering this season. At just over $2 million, Simpson offers a lot of value in a salary cap league. His value is probably a bit inflated in draft leagues though because of his major win, but he should go somewhere around the 4th round.

33. Harris English
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,971,687

After a stellar finish to the 2013-2014 campaign, much was expected of English in 2015, and while he played well in spurts, the overall numbers did not meet expectations. All that means however is that his price is more reasonable entering this season. English has everything needed to thrive on the PGA Tour and he's right on the brink of big things, he just needs to learn how to close. That usually comes with experience and English will have another year under his belt entering this season, which can only help. English is a solid salary cap option this season and should go early in the 4th round of draft leagues.

34. Adam Scott
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$3,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,382,365

It's difficult to describe Scott's 2015 season as anything other than a total disaster. No, he didn't crash his SUV into a tree and find himself embroiled in a domestic controversy, but his play on the course was abysmal…for his standards. Prior to last season, Scott was often mentioned in that class of golfers just below McIlroy, now he's not even mentioned in the group below the "Big Three". To forget about Scott however would be a mistake. His talent rivals anyone out there, yes, anyone, but it's the space between the ears that he needs to work on. It will be nearly impossible for Scott to play worse this season, so with that in mind, he's a "must have" at this price in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should still go in the 3rd round.

35. Kevin Na
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,820,766

Na has been a very good player on the PGA Tour for the better part of the past decade, but his ceiling seems limited to around $3 million in earnings. In addition, Na seems to play his best golf early in the season, so if you happen to draft Na, it might be wise to sell high after the first few months of the season. It seems unlikely that Na will go far beyond the $3 million mark this season, so he's not a good candidate for a salary cap league. In draft leagues he should go in the 3rd or 4th round.

36. Ryan Moore
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,642,306

The 2014-15 season was Moore 10th consecutive on the PGA Tour with more than $1 million in earnings. $1 million in earnings isn't what it used to be, but it's still impressive that Moore has been able to avoid a bad season for that long of a span. While Moore has avoided the poor season, he really hasn't had a great season either. The 2013-2014 season was his best on paper as he finally cracked the $3 million mark, but even in that season, he had only one top-3 finish. In fact, Moore has never carded more than two top-3 finishes in any one season. It's tough to put up huge numbers if you can't find those high-end finishes in bunches. Moore is nothing if not reliable, which makes him a solid 3rd-4th round pick in draft formats, but it also makes him difficult to select in salary cap formats.

37. Gary Woodland
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,605,083

Injuries derailed Woodland in 2012, just a year after an outstanding season in which he earned nearly $3.5 million, but it didn't take him long to get back on track as he was once again productive in 2013. In the two years since, Woodland hasn't been able to repeat the success from 2012, but he's come close...twice. Woodland looks the part of a superstar, but he's got work to do to get there. Woodland is a bomber off the tee and it seems as though he'll never be accurate, but where he can make the jump is in the percent of greens hit. In 2011 he hit over 69%, the past two seasons he's clocked-in at just under 67%. It doesn't seem like a big difference, but it is. With only one season on record in which he played at a really high-level, it's hard to back him in at this price though. In draft leagues, he's a solid 4th-rounder.

38. Billy Horschel
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,735,751

Much was expected of Horschel as he entered the 2014-15 as the reigning FedEx champion, but Horschel was never able to get it going last season and his numbers as a whole were very disappointing. As is the case with many guys from last season though, you can grab Horschel at a discounted price because his game was off for much of the season. Horschel is too good to put up back-to-back subpar seasons. He'll bounce back this year, the only question is to what degree. $2 million in earnings should be a lock, $3 million is certainly not out of the question either. As such, he's a pretty good salary cap option this season. In draft leagues he could go as early as the 3rd round.

39. Hunter Mahan
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,617,973

It's funny what one under-performing season can do to perceptions of a player. Mahan had a bad year by his standards in 2014-15, but in the big picture, it was just one bad season. He's only 33, it's not like he's on the tail-end of his career. Mahan's prior five seasons on the PGA Tour resulted in no less than $3 million in earnings, so he should be considered a must-have at this price entering this season in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should go well ahead of where he finished last year, likely near the 3rd or 4th round.

40. Anirban Lahiri - I
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $490,003

This is a unique case where one of the best players in the world -- Lahiri is ranked 39th -- is going to be a Reshuffle List player, having earned his card through the Web.com Tour Finals. A Presidents Cup member, Lahiri is a star in India. He earned his card via a T6 finish at the first Web.com Tour Finals event, the Hotel Fitness Championship, on the back of a T5 finish at the PGA Championship. Last year, he won both his home country's open and in Malaysia and finished fifth at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland. Winner of the Long Drive Competition at the PGA, Lahiri averaged 64.63 percent of his fairways and 65.79 percent of his greens in his appearances on the PGA Tour last season. This guy is going to win a major, folks.

41. Daniel Berger
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $3,028,901

Two runner-ups, six top-10s and over $3 million in earnings. Not a bad start to a career on the PGA Tour. Berger was one of the 2014-15 crop of rookies that broke-out early and often. Berger's year can only be classified as a success, but he did miss an awful lot of cuts last season. That's really the only knock on the rookie, but as for the upcoming season, it's going to be hard to pull the trigger on Berger in a salary cap format as his number is set awfully high. In addition, it's difficult for rookies in general to follow up strong campaigns. As such, he's not a good option in salary cap leagues, but in draft leagues he should go in the 4th or 5th round.

42. Chris Kirk
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,369,326

To call Chris Kirk's 2013-2014 season a "breakout" is an understatement. Not only did he win twice on the PGA Tour, but he nearly cracked the $5 million mark. It's understandable then that Kirk fell back to Earth a bit last season, earning "only" just over $2 million. Though it was a step back from his previous season, the numbers he posted last year were his second best on the PGA Tour. That leaves salary cap players in a tough spot entering this season. Is there a $5 million season on the horizon or does he find a home near the $2 million mark? Considering the amount of talent near the top of the tour now, it's going to be hard to duplicate his 2013-2014 season. With that in mind, he's a decent salary cap pick, but not a great one entering this season. In draft leagues he should go in the 4th round.

43. Phil Mickelson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,154,200

Did we already witness the end of Phil Mickelson's run? What looked like a blip on the radar a couple years ago has suddenly turned into a couple "bad" seasons in succession. $2 million in earnings is hardly a bad season for most players on the PGA Tour, but Mickelson was one of the best players on the planet for over a decade. The question now is, is this the beginning of the end for Mickelson? Mickelson doesn't seem like the type of player that will simply fade away, he still has plenty of moments left on the PGA Tour, but from a fantasy perspective, his upside isn't nearly what it used to be, so he's a questionable salary cap prospect this season. In draft leagues he's likely to go much earlier than he should, but he should go no earlier than the 3rd round.

44. Russell Henley
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,110,774

Three full seasons on the PGA Tour for Russell Henley and three years above the $2 million mark. The consistency is certainly there, but what about the upside? His career-best earnings number came in 2013-2014 when he topped $2.5 million and his low was his rookie season when he just creeped over $2 million. If he continues this pace, he'll have a fine, lucrative career, but until he breaks out of this $2 million territory, he'll make for a tough salary cap selection. As for draft leagues, he'll be a solid pick, somewhere near the 4th round.

45. Matt Jones
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,995,553

After years of struggling on the PGA Tour, Jones looks like he's finally starting to get things figured out. He posted a career-best earnings number last season as well as a career-high of two top-3 finishes. Jones' progression has been slow and steady, but there are signs that a big bump may be on the horizon. Jones' cuts-made percentage was very impressive last year at 80%, so the risk is relatively low as well. As such, he's a solid salary cap option this and should go in the 4th or 5th round in draft leagues.

46. Ryan Palmer
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,974,523

Palmer has been on the PGA Tour since 2004 and he spent the better part of his first six years missing a lot of cuts, but making up for it by winning every now and then. The funny thing is, since 2011, he's morphed into a consistent player who makes a lot of cuts, but can't seem to find those high-end finishes anymore. If he can find a way to meld the two, he could have one heck of a season. It's that idea that makes him an interesting salary cap option. His upside is extremely high, but the likelihood of reaching that upside seems low. With that said, he's not going to fall off the map, he's too consistent now. In draft leagues he should go somewhere near the 5th round.

47. Branden Grace - I
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,300,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,471,160

Grace is most known -- unfortunately for him -- as the man who drove it onto the train tracks on the 16th hole on Sunday at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. It cost him a chance at his first major, but the upside is that finish clinched his PGA Tour card for 2015-16 via the Non-Member FedEx Cup points list. A Presidents Cup member, Grace had a strong season overall, finishing third at the PGA Championship, T4 at the U.S. Open, T7 at the RBC Heritage, T9 at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, T20 at the Open Championship and T17 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He also won on the European Tour earlier this year in Qatar. If he plays enough on the PGA Tour -- and that's a big key -- the South African has a chance to not only be a PGA Tour winner but a major champion, too.

48. Cameron Tringale
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,837,164

For a guy who's never won on the PGA Tour, Tringale's name sure seems to be well-known for whatever reason. He's had little trouble keeping his card for the past five seasons, but there are plenty of guys on tour who can make that claim that most of the viewing public have never heard of. Perhaps this is a good sign for Tringale though, maybe the familiarity with his name is a sign that he's been in the hunt on the weekend a lot over the past few years. Whatever the case, Tringale has the feel of a guy who's on the way up and as such, he makes for an interesting salary cap option this year. In draft leagues he should go around the 5th or 6th round.

49. Brendon Todd
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,809,192

Brendan Todd's first attempt on the PGA Tour ended poorly when he failed to make even $500k, his second try was hampered by injuries, but his third attempt was outstanding. He entered last season off of that outstanding run, a run which say him earn over $3 million and expectations, where, as you'd imagine, quite high. Todd couldn't live up to those expectations last season, but that doesn't mean his season was a failure. In fact, it was a pretty decent follow-up to his first big season on the PGA Tour. Expect Todd to 'bounce-back" this season and end up somewhere between his 2014 and 2015 number. In draft leagues he's a solid 5th-rounder.

50. Shawn Stefani
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,757,803

A lot of things to like from Stefani last season. He set a career-high in earnings, made the cut in over 80% of his starts and earned 10 top-25s in 21 starts. The one thing missing was multiple high-end finishes. He did have one runner-up showing, but that was it, so in order to beef up his number from last season, he'll need to find a win somewhere or a couple runner-ups. Stefani seems more than capable of improving in that area, which makes him a good option in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues he should provide nice value as his name isn't as well-known as others in this range.

51. Keegan Bradley
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,565,079

Are we nearing the point where we call Bradley overrated? Yes, he's got some personality, he's a fiery competitor, but his results simply haven't matched the hype since his major win in 2011. That's not to say he hasn't been productive though. He's posted some pretty solid number over the past five years, but "pretty solid" is not what was expected after winning the PGA Championship. With that said, the potential for a big year is always there and at this price, he's going to be hard to pass on in salary cap formats. In draft leagues he'll probably go too high, but if he's there in the 5th round, it's time to pounce.

52. Jason Bohn
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,337,580

The 2013-2014 season was a career-best for Jason Bohn. Though he failed to win, he posted a career-bests in runner-ups (2) and top-10s (6). He also earned a career-high $2.3 million. If Bohn were a younger man, his numbers last year might be a sign of an upward trend, but alas, Bohn will turn 43 this season and although he played very well last season, I doubt he's going to improve in the coming years. Bohn's number is simply too high to consider in salary cap leagues, but he still holds value in drafts leagues where he should go somewhere around the 5th or 6th round.

53. Russell Knox
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,916,666

After struggling during his initial try on the PGA Tour in 2012, Knox regrouped and came back strong in 2014. He backed-up that effort with another strong showing in 2014-15 and the future looks bright for Knox heading into this season. His growth over the past two seasons has been nice, but it can't be called Earth-shattering. While he's capable of improving significantly this season, a sudden surge doesn't seem likely this season. As such, he's not a great option in salary cap leagues, but should go near the 6th round in draft leagues.

54. David Hearn
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,817,043

With the likes of David Hearn and Graham DeLaet, Canadian golf seems to be in good shape, but entering last season, it was DeLaet who had the higher expectations heaped upon him, yet Hearn finished higher on the money list. Hearn made a nice jump last season, outgaining his previous earnings number by about $700k. Another jump of that amount seems unlikely this year, but a regression in his earnings seems unlikely as well. With that in mind, he's certainly a candidate for selection in salary cap leagues, but there appear to be options in this range with more upside. In draft leagues, he's a solid 5th-rounder.

55. Brendan Steele
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,759,484

Steele made a big splash in his rookie season with a win at the Valero Texas Open, but he struggled to find a lot of success after that win. In the seasons immediately following, Steele struggled to top the $1 million mark. It wasn't until last season that he posted a number closer to $2 million than $1 million. Steele appears to be headed in the right direction now, but his progress has been slow. Expect another solid, but unspectacular season this year from Steele. In draft leagues he should go in the 6th round.

56. Kevin Streelman
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,525,774

Streelamn's first five years on the PGA Tour were productive, but not spectacular by any means. That all changed in 2013 when he not only picked-up his first win on the PGA Tour, but he also topped the $3 million mark. Streelman backed that up with another strong season in 2014 and while he had a pretty good 2015 campaign, he seems to be trending the wrong way. That's one way to look at it, the other would be that last year was a blip and he's due for a bounce-back. Either is certainly possible, but another $3 million season seems unlikely. In draft leagues, look for Streelman as early as the 6th round.

57. Charl Schwartzel
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,209,528

Big things were expected of Charl Schwartzel after he won the 2011 Masters, but since that win, he's failed to win or even finish runner-up on the PGA Tour. That's not to say that he's been a complete failure since his major win, he's actually been quite the opposite. Schwartzel's had a lot of success over the past four seasons, but not to the level that many expected. The 2014-15 season was below even tempered expectations though, which of course means opportunity for anyone in a salary cap league. Schwartzel should go off the board well ahead of his position on the money list from last season, somewhere near the 5th round.

58. Will Wilcox
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,168,302

Wilcox didn't quite do enough during his rookie season to retain his card for last season, but he made the most of his limited eligibility last season to get back where he belongs…on the PGA Tour. Wilcox finished 85th on the money list last season, which isn't such a big deal by itself, but consider that he did it in just 17 starts and it becomes pretty impressive. Wilcox looks like a guy on the way up the ladder on the PGA Tour and at this price, he looks like a steal in salary cap formats. In draft leagues he could go as early as the 6th or 7th round.

59. Jason Dufner
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$2,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,007,997

Entering last season, Dufner appeared to be a pretty sweet deal at a price tag just over $1 million, but he failed to deliver at just about every turn. Dufner had a brief spurt where he looked like the old Dufner, but for the most part the 2014-15 season was a struggle. At barely over $1 million entering this season, Dufner again looks like a good play in salary cap leagues, but expecting a huge bounce-back might be too much at this point. In draft leagues he should go somewhere near the 8th round.

60. Troy Merritt
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,092,669

After fighting for three straight years to simply earn his PGA Tour card, Merritt finally found some breathing room with early success during the 2013-2014 season. The early success came in the form of top-10s in April and May, but the real breakthrough came in August at the Quicken Loans National where he picked-up his first victory on the PGA Tour. While he found success in spots last season, he still lacks any type of consistency. Until he fixes that, he can't be considered in a salary cap format. As for draft leagues, Merritt should probably go in the 6th or 7th round.

61. James Hahn
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $2,064,783

A $2 million haul can hardly be considered a disappointment, especially for a guy who'd never made more than $1 million in a season, but outside his win at the Northern Trust Open, Hahn actually played pretty poorly throughout the season. Winning on the PGA Tour affects golfers in different ways and it's entirely possible that Hahn suffered from a bit of a hangover after his early-season victory, but his results post-win were awful. It will be interesting to see how he responds early in the season because he's spent the better part of that past nine months struggling to make cuts. Hahn's win pushed his number too high to make him a viable salary cap option this year, but he could make a decent draft pick, somewhere around the 6th or 7th round.

62. Marc Leishman
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,762,267

Since joining the PGA Tour in 2009, Leishman has been stuck in "pretty-good" land. He's had his moments, but he's never been able to take his game to the next level for a prolonged stretch. He's been doing this for about six years now, so there's no reason to expect a sudden increase in production anytime soon. As such, he's not a great salary cap option this season, but will serve as a decent draft pick somewhere near the 6th round.

63. Nick Watney
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,733,873

While Watney played some solid golf last year, it seems clear that he's never going to be the player he was a decade ago. What that means for fantasy players is that he's always going to be a poor salary cap selection and he's probably not going to provide a lot of value in draft leagues because he was once a great player. Watney still has some gas left in the tank, but the days of counting on him for big production throughout the season are gone.

64. Ian Poulter
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,690,587

Poulter seems destined to be known more for his antics as the animated Ryder Cup golfer than for anything he'll do on the PGA Tour. He's had his moments during his career, but he's never been able to sustain a high-level of play for more than a few weeks at a time. With that in mind, Poulter is again a poor option in salary cap leagues. He'll provide more value in draft leagues where his presence at the majors comes in handy.

65. Sean O'Hair
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,662,300

The PGA Tour is littered with guys who were once near the top of the tour, but are now relegated to worrying about saving their card on a yearly basis. O'Hair had a nice run a while back, but he hasn't been that guy for quite a while now and it's reasonable to think he'll never be that guy again. As long as he has his card, O'Hair will always have some upside, but even at this reduced price, it's still not worth the risk. In draft leagues he'll likely go off the board too early as someone will take a chance that the old O'Hair will find his way back this year, but he should go around the 7th round.

66. Daniel Summerhays
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,633,957

Summerhays' numbers have improved every year since he first joined the PGA Tour in 2011. The only problem is, his progression has been painfully slow. He made a big leap from year-one to year-two, but since then, it's been baby steps on his way to what was a career-high in earnings last season. Expect a small step forward again this season, which obviously makes him a tough pick in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues however, he's proven to be a reliable golfer, so a selection near the 7th-round should be expected.

67. Brendon de Jonge
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,594,935

Brendon de Jonge is one of the true iron horses on the PGA Tour. Since joining the PGA Tour in 2009, de Jonge has played in at least 26 events each year, and he's averaged over 30 events each year since 2011. His production has stayed generally between $1 million and $2 million during that stretch, so his prospects don't look that good in salary cap formats, however, he's a pretty reliable golfer in draft leagues and should go near the 7th round.

68. John Senden
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,422,033

Senden has been one of the more consistent players on the PGA Tour over the past 10 years. With the exception of one poor season in 2013, Senden has been as reliable as it gets for players in this range. There are a few things you can count on from Senden each year...he's going to make a lot of cuts, he's going to have a lot of top-25s and he's going to have a good amount of top-10s. The only question each year is, will he have any high-end finishes? That will determine whether or not he's got value in a salary cap league. In draft leagues he should be taken in the 7th round.

69. Zac Blair
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,244,676

Blair is proof that all those "little" checks on the PGA Tour can add up to something big at the end of the season. Blair teed it up 34 times last season and cashed 20 times. Eight times he ended up in the top-25, but only twice did he finish in the top-10. As you can see from the numbers above, Blair wasn't by any means spectacular last season, but when you give yourself that many chances, you are bound to strike gold every once in a while. Blair will likely play every chance he gets again this season and if he can find just a couple high-end finishes, he could really improve upon his number from last season. In draft leagues, look for Blair to go off the board in the 8th or 9th round.

70. Martin Laird
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,124,988

From 2009-2013 Laird picked-up three victories and five runner-ups, but over the past two years, he's struggled to find that form. At a price tag of just under $600k entering last season, Laird appeared to be a steal and while he almost doubled his number last year, it still left a bit to be desired. At over $1 million entering this season, he carries a little more risk and a little less upside, but he remains a solid play. In draft leagues he should go off the board around the 7th or 8th round.

71. Graham DeLaet
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $988,349

The one word to describe the 2014-15 season for DeLaet would be -- disappointing. Entering last season, DeLaet had posted consecutive seasons of over $2 million in earnings. DeLaet may have played over his head during those two seasons, but he certainly didn't play his best last year either. Expecting a bounce-back to the tune of $2.5 million this year may be too much to ask, but a significant improvement on his number from last year is not. In draft leagues he should go in the 6th or 7th round.

72. Brian Harman
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,600,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,548,352

Harman has been a bit of a roller coaster in his four years on the PGA Tour. He played well his rookie season, then regressed a bit. He came back in his third season and topped $2 million in earnings, then regressed again the following year. If history holds, he'll improve this year, but that's not enough to justify his price in a salary cap leagues. What's more concerning though is the number of missed-cuts last season -- 13 in 29 starts. Harman should go near the 7th or 8th round in draft leagues.

73. Boo Weekley
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,689,914

Weekley is one of the most likable characters on the PGA Tour, but unfortunately, his better days are behind him. Weekley showed a bit of a spark a few different times last season, but he seems incapable of becoming the golfer he once was. Weekley's upside is no longer there and to be honest, he's never been the most reliable golfer either. With that in mind, he's not a good salary cap option this year, but should go off the board in the 6th or 7th round this year.

74. Pat Perez
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,588,664

Perez has one of the more fascinating records on the PGA Tour. Since joining in 2002, Perez has finished inside the top-125 on the money list each and every season, but what's more interesting is that in all that time, he's never cracked the $2 million mark. Even his lone win in 2009 wasn't enough to push him over that mark. It seems obvious by now that he's never going to have a huge break through out here, but as far as consistency, well, there aren't many like him on the PGA Tour. Perez should be taken in the 7th or 8th rounds in draft leagues.

75. Rory Sabbatini
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,525,784

With any luck, Sabbatini will pass the $30 million mark in career earnings on the PGA Tour this season. It's obviously been a solid career for Sabbatini, but the bulk of his production came nearly a decade ago, and there are no signs that he's got a run like that in him again. Sabbatini's last win on the PGA Tour came in 2011 and since then he's lived in the $1 million to $1.5 million range. Expect Sabbatini to end up right in that range again this year. In drafts, he should be selected near the 8th round.

76. Matt Every
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,521,816

Every picked-up his second PGA Tour win in 2015, but the season as a whole paled in comparison to his 2013-2014 season. Even with the win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, his earnings last year were roughly $1 million less than the previous season. The reason was, he had only one top-10 last season. That's not the type of production you expect from someone in this range. It makes forecasting his numbers this year nearly impossible as well. He's too much of a risk in salary cap leagues this year and in draft leagues he could go anywhere from round seven to round nine.

77. George McNeill
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,331,768

McNeil has done a good job at improving his cuts-made percentage over the past five years, going from around 50%, to just under 75% last season. It's one of the reasons he's earned over $1 million in four of the last five seasons. What's been missing though is the high-end finishes. He did pick-up a win in 2012, but over the past five years, he's had only 10 top-10s. McNeil's upside will be limited if he can't improve upon that number this year. In draft leagues, McNeil looks like an 8th or 9th-round pick.

78. Kevin Chappell
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,281,552

There's been nothing spectacular about Chappell's results on the PGA Tour since joining in 2011, but give him credit, he's been pretty consistent. Of concern though is his lack of top-10s. In his five seasons on the PGA Tour, he's maxed-out at three top-10s. That's a number that he'll have to improve upon if he's to offer any value in a salary cap format this season. In draft leagues he should go somewhere near the 8th or 9th-round.

79. Charles Howell III
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,257,361

The year was 2000 and Charles Howell III failed to top $1 million in earnings on the PGA Tour. That was the last time this occurred. As you can imagine, Howell III has made a lot of money on the PGA Tour since then, but although he's been a good player for the past 14 years, he hasn't often been great. Howell III has topped the $2 million mark several times throughout his career, but he hasn't done so since 2011. Howell III will likely top $1 million in earnings yet again this season, but to expect something much bigger would be foolish. As such, he's not a great salary cap option, but should go in the 7th or 8th rounds in draft leagues.

80. Carl Pettersson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,186,763

Pettersson might be the most anonymous five-time winner in PGA Tour history. Since joining the PGA Tour full-time in 2003, Pettersson has had many highs and many lows. The high came during the 2012 season when he earned over $3.5 million. The lows came during the 2009 and 2013 seasons when he failed to crack the $1 million mark. Pettersson clearly has a lot of upside, but he also carries plenty of risk. With that said, his price tag isn't very steep this season, so he looks to be an appealing salary cap option. In draft leagues he should go off the board in the 7th or 8th round.

81. Chesson Hadley
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,135,529

Hadley picked-up a win during his rookie season two years ago and earned just over $1.7 million. With that win he earned a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour, so it's entirely possible that Hadley let-up a bit last season knowing that his card wasn't on the line. At least, that's the optimistic view of his 2014-15 season. The pessimistic view would be that Hadley's rookie season was a fluke. Salary cap leagues are all about value though and as someone who earned $1.7 million just two seasons ago, Hadley has plenty of value entering this season. In drafts he should go off the board in the 8th or 9th round.

82. Johnson Wagner
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,131,659

Wagner has been long known as a guy who played well only on certain courses, but last year that changed as he actually found a bit of consistency. Though he seemed to expand his horizons last seasons, he didn't manage to find a lot of success on the whole. As a three-time winner on the PGA Tour, the upside is certainly there, but Wagner has never shown the ability to play at a high-level for an extended period of time, so he's rarely a good salary cap option. In drafts he should go somewhere around the 9th or 10th round.

83. Luke Donald
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,026,643

The way he's played the past couple seasons, it's hard to imagine that Luke Donald was once the top-ranked player in the world, but it's the truth. Not only did he ascend to the top of the World Golf Rankings, but he also earned over $6.6 million during the 2011 season. There are only a handful of players in the history of the game that have made that much in one season. Donald hasn't been that played in a while though and it's tough to say if he'll ever be that guy again. With that said, his upside is still much higher than the number he posted last year and while he's not a "must-have", he's certainly an interesting proposition in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should go in the 6th or 7th round.

84. Francesco Molinari
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $997,389

Molinari is a very intriguing player because his world ranking allows him access to most of the big events on the PGA Tour schedule. It's what he does at those big events that either makes or breaks his season though. Last year he played well in certain spots and not so well in others. In order to provide a lot of value, he'll need to find a high-end finish at a major or a WGC event. It'll just take one to make his season though, so at this price, he's worth a look in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he'll go higher that others in this range because of his eligibility in those high-end events.

85. Carlos Ortiz
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $964,137

Ortiz entered the 2014-15 with as much hype as any other rookie on the PGA Tour and while he was able to retain his card for the upcoming season, there was still a lot to be desired. With that said, expectations are bound to be tempered this season, which could work in his advantage. Though Ortiz failed to capture many high-end finishes, he did make the cut in 20 or 30 starts and managed to creep into the top-25 in nine of those starts, so there is promise. As such, Ortiz looks like a decent salary cap option this season. In drafts he could provide some nice value in the 9th or 10th round.

86. Martin Kaymer
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $886,378

Kaymer has proven to be the ultimate hit or miss played on the PGA Tour. In the two seasons where he's won on the PGA Tour, he's earned over $6 million. During the eight seasons that he hasn't won, he's earned less than $3 million combined. Kaymer is only a year removed from a $4.5 million season, so the upside is obvious and at this price, the risk is fairly low as well. He doesn't have his card for the upcoming season because he didn't play enough last season, but he'll get his 12 events in and all of those events will have big purses. As such, he's a solid salary cap option this season. In drafts he'll likely go in the 5th or 6th round.

87. Spencer Levin
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $836,698

A few years back, Levin appeared to be one of the up and coming young players on the PGA Tour, but injuries started to creep in during the 2013-2014 season and he wasn't able to take-off. With the injuries behind him, he's ready to get back to the level he was in 2011 when he earned over $2.3 million. Levin enters this season at a great price and should be heavily considered in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he should go off the board in the 8th or 9th round.

88. Graeme McDowell - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $686,438

It's becoming clear that McDowell isn't the superstar that some thought he would become after winning the U.S. Open in 2010, but he's still a pretty good player, one that shouldn't be making less than $1 million on the PGA Tour. Prior to last season, McDowell had a run of three consecutive seasons over the $2 million mark. That's the upside for McDowell, which is important because his price is a little steep for the "must-have" category. As such, he's not a "must-have", but he should be heavily considered. In draft leagues he should be taken near the 6th or 7th round.

89. Shane Lowry - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $502,517

Lowry got his PGA Tour card the old-fashioned way -- he earned it. Well maybe it's not considered the old-fashioned way, but it certainly is the road less traveled. Lowry earned his card by playing well on the PGA Tour, which is not something that most up and comers do. It's exactly how Jordan Spieth earned his way onto the tour and while he's not in Spieth's class just yet, he does have a lot of potential. So much so, that at this price, he's a "must-have" in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues he may still be under the radar, so if he's available after round five, he should be snatched-up.

90. Emiliano Grillo - I
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $348,407

Technically he won't be a rookie -- he played too many events last season on the PGA Tour to still qualify for that status -- but the point still holds: this first-year player has a ton of game. One of the losers in the five-man playoff earlier this season at the Puerto Rico Open (fellow Web.com Tour Finals graduate Sam Saunders was another), Grillo earned enough points through that event and other finishes to make it to the Finals, where he won in style in the final-round of the final event, capping off a four-event run where he went 9-T2-missed cut-1, a dazzling stretch of golf that proves how much talent this man has. At TPC Sawgrass he was T4 in driving accuracy, 17th in driving distance, T1 in greens in regulation and 14th in putts per GIR. And he has momentum headed into this season. PGA Tour: watch out. He starts the season second on the Reshuffle List.

91. Tim Clark
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,400,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,028,139

Though he missed 22 weeks last season due to an elbow injury, Clark was able to extend a rather fascinating streak. Clark has posted at least one runner-up finish every season since 2005. Even during the 2011 season, when he played in only four events, he still managed a runner-up finish. As for his prospects this season...that's a tough call. He only played 13 events last season and it's safe to say that if he played a full season, he would have earned quite a bit more, but he did turn 40 last season, so it's about that time where his skills would start to decline. At this price, there is definitely some upside, but there may not be as much as you think. In drafts he should go in the 8th or 9th round.

92. Jerry Kelly
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,336,607

Next year at this time, we'll be talking about Kelly's interest in joining the Champions Tour, but for now the 49 year-old is still trying to hang-on to life on the PGA Tour. Kelly's had a bit of a resurgence over the past two seasons, finishing comfortably inside the top-125 each year. While he'll likely be in a similar spot next season, his upside just isn't there anymore. As such, he has little value in a salary cap league. in draft leagues, he looks to be an 8th or 9th-round selection.

93. Padraig Harrington
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,330,852

After failing to earn $200k during the 2013-2014 season, it wasn't unreasonable to think that Harrington was all but done on the PGA Tour. While we aren't going to see the guy who won multiple majors again, there's still some life in Harrington. With that said, he's still too much of a risk at this price to take in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he'll go in rounds nine or 10.

94. Scott Pinckney
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,259,389

Under normal circumstances, a rookie that had the year that Pinckney had last year would have generated a bit of attention, but with all the fine performances from the other rookies last season, Pinckney went largely under the radar. There was nothing spectacular about Pinckney's rookie season on the whole, but a three-month stretch from March through May was pretty impressive. During that stretch he picked up all three of his top-10s for the season, including a runner-up showing at the Byron Nelson Classic. While Pinckney had a solid rookie season, there weren't any signs that a huge jump is coming anytime soon. With that in mind, expect similar output this year. In draft leagues he should go in the 8th or 9th round.

95. Morgan Hoffmann
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,111,240

A lot was expected of Hoffmann after he earned over $1.5 million in his 2nd season on the PGA Tour, but things didn't quite go as expected last season. Though Hoffmann was able to secure his card for the upcoming season, he didn't do much beyond that. Hoffmann earned only two top-10s last season and has only eight in his three-year career. Hoffmann seems like a guy who's in the mix quite a bit, but the numbers would argue otherwise. The upside for Hoffmann appears to be a few years out at this point. In draft he should go near the 10th round.

96. William McGirt
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,004,696

The 2014-15 season wasn't McGirt's best, but he did post his best cuts-made percentage of his career. He made 22 cuts in 30 starts and while it would have been nice to see more production on the weekend, it's certainly promising that he's around for more weekends than before. Look for McGirt to show more improvement in 2015-16, but not quite enough to merit a salary cap selection this year. In draft leagues he should go in the 9th or 10th round.

97. Jamie Donaldson - M
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $938,664

Donaldson fared much better than most of his fellow foreigners do in their first season as a PGA Tour member. It's not uncommon to see a heralded European player give the PGA Tour a shot only to fall flat a head back to the Euro Tour the following season. While Donaldson lacked the high-end finishes that he was used to on the Euro Tour, over here, he did play well enough to sneak into the top-125. Donaldson's upside will be high this year because his world ranking will help him gain entrance to some bigger events. As such, he's a pretty solid salary cap option this season. In drafts he should go off the board prior to the 10th round.

98. Jonas Blixt - P
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,250,000
2014-15 Earnings: $703,664

Jonas Blixt's first two seasons on the PGA Tour were very successful and even his third to some degree, but his fourth, last season, was not so great. To his credit, Blixt did enough to retain his card for the upcoming season, but on the whole, the 2014-15 was sub par. Blixt might not be the guy who earned over $2 million per year in his first two seasons on the PGA Tour, but he's still got enough upside to improve on his number from last season. As such, Blixt has plenty of value in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he could go as early as the 9th round.

99. Harold Varner III - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,200,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

By far the rookie with the most publicity is Varner, the first African American to earn his card via the Web.com Tour. Varner's on-the-course play should not be overlooked. He has the potential to be THE superstar of the rookies this year. While he didn't win on the Web.com Tour last season, consistency was the name of the game. He finished second in his first start of the season - the Panama Claro Championship and notched two other top-10s and nine top-25s in 25 starts. He had to hold his breath at the end - he got the 25th and final card from the Web.com Tour regular-season money list. With a game that had him ranked 48th in total driving and 38th in the all-around Ranking, Varner has the potential to win in 2015-16 if he can putt a little better and hit more fairways (he ranked 111th and 102nd in those two categories, respectively). Varner starts the new PGA Tour season 31st on the Reshuffle List.

100. Patrick Rodgers - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,200,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,038,291

Overlooked in the last month because of a quirk in PGA Tour regulations that prohibited him from participating in the FedEx Cup Playoffs as a non-member, Rodgers pulled off a heck of a feat in 2015: turning pro with almost no status and STILL managing to earn his card in THREE ways: via the Web.com Tour's 25 leading regular season money winners, the PGA Tour Non-Member FedEx Cup points list and the PGA Tour Non-Member money list. His results were stout: T2 at the Wells Fargo Championship and third at the Barracuda Championship with 12 made cuts in 17 starts, crucial to him clinching his card. In those 17 events, he was ninth in driving distance, 24th in birdie average and 44th in total driving. He is one to watch.

101. Cameron Smith - I
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,200,000
2014-15 Earnings: $976,297

Smith left the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay a big winner. He nearly made an albatross on the 72nd hole, tapping in for an eagle that led to a T4 finish that clinched his PGA Tour card for the 2015-16 season via the Non-Member FedEx Cup points list. Lost in all that is that Smith nearly won on the PGA Tour last fall, at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia where he tied for fifth. He also tied for 15th at the RBC Heritage and tied for 18th at the Wyndham Championship. He ranked 21st in greens in regulation and 18th in putts per green in regulation at the U.S. Open. This Australian may take a while to get familiar with the venues here in the U.S., but don't be surprised if he sneaks up and wins this year. He's that good.

102. Lee Westwood
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,200,000
2014-15 Earnings: $946,628

Last season was perhaps the first in about a decade that the golfing public expected little from Westwood and being the reliable player that he's always been, he delivered as expected. Perhaps Westwood will surprise us all and pick-up that illusive major when no one expects it, but as the years go by, it's looking less and less likely that he'll ever get one. As for the upcoming season as a whole, well, he's certainly capable of significantly improving upon his number from last year, but it shouldn't be expected. He will be drafted in just about every league, if for nothing else, his value during majors.

103. Seung-Yul Noh - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,200,000
2014-15 Earnings: $711,609

In four years on the PGA Tour, Noh has alternated good and bad seasons. His first year on the PGA Tour was very impressive with over $1.6 million in earnings and three top-10s. His followed-up however was a disappointment as he failed to even make $400k. With the pressure back on though, Noh came through big-time during the 2013-2014 season when he topped the $2 million mark. He again followed up a productive season with a disappointing one as he failed to crack the top-125 last season. Noh seems to play his best when the pressure is on and with no exemption for the season after the upcoming one, he'll have to pick-up his game again this year. As such, he makes a good, but not great salary cap selection this year. In draft leagues he should go off the board in 9th or 10th round.

104. Tom Hoge - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,200,000
2014-15 Earnings: $690,319

Hoge had four top-25s as a rookie, but all in the second half of season, definitely showing improvement. He just missed the FedEx Cup playoffs, should be there this season.

105. Geoff Ogilvy - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,200,000
2014-15 Earnings: $653,925

From 2005-2010, Ogilvy won seven times on the PGA Tour, including the 2006 U.S. Open. During that time, Ogilvy was one of the best players on the PGA Tour and there were no signs that his game would leave him, yet for the better part of two years, the 2012-2013 seasons, that's exactly what happened. He didn't fall off the map, but during those two seasons, he wasn't the guy we came to know earlier in his career. A win during the 2013-2014 season brought hope that the "old Ogilvy" was back, but any momentum gained during the 2013-2014 season was lost last season. Ogilvy's upside is not what it was 10 years ago, but as he proved two years ago, it's still pretty high. As such, he's a great value in salary cap leagues this season. In draft leagues he'll likely go in or around the 10th round.

106. Jason Kokrak
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,100,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,033,489

Kokrak has topped the $1 million mark in earnings in three of the four years he's been on the PGA Tour. The problem is, his best number to date was just over $1.2 million in 2012. Kokrak has done a good job at cracking the top-25 over the past two seasons, he has 18 combined, but he lacks the high-end finishes that are needed to post really big numbers. At some point, he'll likely figure out how to finish, but until then, he's too much of a risk in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he'll go in the 10th round or later.

107. Hudson Swafford
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,100,000
2014-15 Earnings: $959,391

Swaford's rookie season in 2013-2014 didn't go quite as planned as he barely earned over $500k, but his second season looked much more promising. Sure, he didn't crack $1 million last season, but he finished inside the top-125 and he made more cuts than he missed. Baby steps are better than no steps. Expect another baby step this season and another small improvement. Small improvements are nice, but they don't help in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should go in the 10th round or later.

108. Fabian Gomez
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,651,012

Gomez came out of nowhere in 2015 to have a very solid season. The 2014-15 season was actually his third attempt on the PGA Tour after the firs two resulted finishes outside the top-125 on the money list. His second attempt was better than his first, and his third was better than his second, so there's a nice trend developing, but his number from last year was so much better than his previous best that he's really out priced here in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he's most likely a late-round pick.

109. Jim Herman
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,212,778

Herman earned more money in 27 starts last season than he had in his previous 66 starts combined. To say he had a breakthrough last season would be an understatement. Herman's season really boiled down to two top-10s and a nice run to end the season. Though it was a huge step-up for Herman last season, there weren't any signs that he's ready to take yet another step-up this year. As such, expect a slight regression in his numbers this season. He should find a spot in your draft around the 10th round.

110. Kyle Reifers
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,179,228

Reifers first two attempts on the PGA Tour were largely unsuccessful as they both resulted in trips back to Q-School, but his third attempt, last season, went much better. Although Reifers did enough to earn his card for the upcoming season, there isn't that much to get excited about. If Reifers can retain his card again this season it will be considered a success. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this season. In draft leagues, he'll go off the board very late.

111. Bryce Molder
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,165,547

With the exception of the 2011 season, where he earned nearly $2 million, Molder has lived in the $800k to $1.4 million range for the past seven seasons. While Molder's been a decent professional for quite a while, he's rarely resembled a great player. He has only three top-3 finishes in his 14-year career, so it's quite clear that his upside is very limited. As such, there's no reason to consider him in a salary cap league. In drafts, he should go very late or possibly go undrafted.

112. Scott Brown
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,161,750

Though he finished comfortably inside the top-125 last season, there wasn't much to write home about concerning Scott Brown's 2014-15 season. In 30 starts, Brown managed three top-10s and one of those came at the Puerto Rico Open. On a positive note, Brown has managed to retain his card for three consecutive seasons on the PGA Tour, so the odds are good that he'll do it again this year, but the upside doesn't appear to be there. In draft leagues he should go around the 9th or 10th round.

113. Nick Taylor
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,072,360

Taylor could not have scripted the start of his rookie season any better last season. After a few rough starts, he picked-up a win at the Sanderson Farms Championship in November. He didn't have a whole lot of success after that, but it's hard to blame him. He'll play this season with no worries as he's locked-in through the following season. The question will be how he responds with no pressure. Taylor will go off the board late in drafts.

114. Jon Curran
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,049,549

Curran was another one of the 2014-15 rookie class to top $1 million in earnings last season. Curran's season wasn't quite as spectacular as many others on that list though. Curran made the cut in just half of his 28 starts last season and only five of those made cuts resulted in top-25s. On a positive note, all of those top-25s were also top-10s, so it goes to show that when he's one, he's on. With that said, he simply wasn't "on" enough last season to justify a selection in salary cap leagues this season. In draft leagues he'll likely go in round 10 or later.

115. Adam Hadwin
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $937,611

Yet another rookie on the PGA Tour last season that played well enough to retain his card for the upcoming season. Hadwin earned his card on the back of three top-10s, one during the fall, one during the spring and one during the summer. It's a good sign that he found success in different parts of the year, but some more consistency is needed if he's to make a jump to the next level. That jump may come soon, but not this year. In draft leagues, Hadwin should go in the 10th round or later.

116. Scott Stallings - M
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $919,619

In his five years on the PGA Tour, Stallings has accumulated three wins and two runner-ups. Pretty impressive, but a look at his earnings from each season shows a downward trend. Stallings' best season to date was his rookie campaign in 2011 when he earned nearly $2 million, but since then, he hasn't really come close to that production. He has comfortably retained his card each of the past five seasons, but he doesn't appear to be improving. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this season. In drafts he should go in the 10th round or later.

117. Ryo Ishikawa
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $851,044

Ishikawa was ticketed for big things when he first joined the PGA Tour a few years ago, but unlike his fellow countryman Hideki Matsuayama, the success has been hard to come by. Ishikawa is nowhere near the point where we should give up on him though, he's far too young for that, but it might be time to adjust expectations. With that said, his number is set pretty low entering this season, so he's worth a look in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he may go undrafted, but he's probably worth a late-round flyer.

118. Ernie Els - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $453,579

At 46, Els isn't nearly the player he used to be, but even by his new standards, his 2014-15 was highly disappointing. Els made only 10 cuts in 18 tries and failed to earn a single top-10. That's the bad news, the good news is, he's just one year removed from earning nearly $1.8 million and just three years removed from a $3 million season. It's doubtful that he'll hit the $3 million mark again, but a $1 million season is certainly reasonable. With that in mind, Els is a great salary cap selection this year. In drafts he'll go around the 10th round.

119. Tiger Woods - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $448,598

Prior to his season ending surgery, Woods was making some solid progress and had to be considered a "must-have "entering this season. After that announcement though, an argument could be made that he's not worth the risk as his recent history with recovering from injuries has not been great. With that said, unless Tiger announces that he'll be out for a majority of the upcoming season, he's easily worth the risk. Woods will never be the all-time great that he once was, but he's still only a couple years removed from five wins on the PGA Tour. As such, he remains a "must-have" in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues he'll likely go anywhere from round three to round five.

120. Danny Willett - I
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$1,000,000
2014-15 Earnings: $408,435

Willett, 25th in the world golf rankings, won the Nedbank Golf Challenge last season on the European Tour and backed that up with a victory at the European Masters in July. He made seven of 10 cuts on the PGA Tour last season to finish in the top 125 on the non-member FedEx points list and earn his 2015-16 card. He will only play majors and WGCs this season, but he has a legitimate chance to contend at those.

121. Colt Knost
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$900,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,066,553

Last season was the fifth on the PGA Tour for Knost and the first time he'd ever cracked the $1 million mark. It was not coincidently, the first time he'd ever made more cuts than he'd missed in a season as well. While it's certainly promising for Knost that he finished inside the top-100 on the money list last year, there doesn't seem to be much to get excited about...at least this year anyway. Knost will either be taken late or not at all in draft leagues.

122. J.J. Henry
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$900,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,046,123

Henry's had a long and prosperous career on the PGA Tour, he even surpassed $15 million in career earnings last season. Though he's been very consistent over the years, he's rarely played at a high-level. Henry peaked in 2006 when he earned over $2.3 million, but in all the years he's been on the PGA Tour, (14) 2006 was the only time he surpassed $2 million in one season. As such, Henry has basically no value in a salary cap format this season. In drafts, he'll go in round 10 or later.

123. John Peterson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$900,000
2014-15 Earnings: $779,509

Peterson is a young guy who's still figuring things out on the PGA Tour as evidence by his performance pre and post-cut last season. Peterson made 19 cuts in 25 starts, but only cracked the top-25 in seven of those 19 starts on the weekend. He obviously needs to work on his weekend game, but that's something he'll figure out as he gets more experience. Until that time, he's not worth a pick in salary cap formats. In draft leagues he'll go after the 10th round or undrafted.

124. Chris Stroud - P
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$900,000
2014-15 Earnings: $746,814

The 2013 season seemed to be a turning point for Stroud as he captured his first runner-up on the PGA Tour and he posted a career-high in earnings at over $1.6 million. It seemed to be a turning point because his first six seasons produced not a single top-3 finish and only one season over $1 million in earnings. Stroud followed-up the 2013 season with another strong season in 2013-2014, but he couldn't maintain that momentum last season. This upcoming season is an important one in determining Stroud's future. Will he regress into his pre-2013 form again or will he rebound? With an upside under $2 million, Stroud probably isn't worth the risk in a salary cap leagues this year. In draft he should go in the 10th round or later.

125. Angel Cabrera - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$900,000
2014-15 Earnings: $381,942

Cabrera has been all over the map the past five years. He's gone from winning less that $300k in 2012, to earning over $1.7 million in consecutive seasons and then back again. Cabrera is a tough one to peg for salary cap purposes. He's only one year removed from a solid season, yet he has a tendency to completely disappear from time to time. With that said, the risk is very minimal, so he's worth consideration this season. In draft leagues he'll likely go off the board prior to the 10th round because of his play in the majors over the years.

126. Sam Saunders - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$850,000
2014-15 Earnings: $578,571

Arnold Palmer's grandson showed flashes as rookie and now should do a bit better now that he's gone through one season. But only a bit better.

127. Si Woo Kim - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$850,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

He's only 20 and had a Web.com win and runner-up, and that's enough to keep an eye on him. Played eight PGA events in 2013 (no made cuts), so he's not a rookie. He's 23rd in priority rankings.

128. Greg Owen
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,180,794

When all is said and done, Owen's career will likely be reduced to a couple of close calls on the PGA Tour. His first came in 2006 when he famously blew a late lead at the Bay Hill Invitational. That loss seem to have some lasting effects on Owen as it wasn't until six years later that he got above the $1 million mark. His success that year quickly became a memory however as the next two years were some of the worst in his career. Last year however was different as he picked-up another runner-up finish. It will be interesting to see if Owen can build off that finish this time instead of going in the tank. Whichever way he goes, he's simply not worth the risk in a salary cap league this year and likely won't be taken until very late in a draft format.

129. Chad Campbell
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,015,707

It's been eight years since Campbell last won on the PGA Tour and six years since he had a really solid season. While last season was his best in nearly five years, it still wasn't all that impressive. Considering Campbell earned well under $1 million in the three years leading up to last season, there's simply too much with Campbell in a salary cap format. In draft leagues he'll go in the 10th round or later.

130. Andres Gonzales
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $925,335

Overall it was a solid season for Gonzales, but a closer look reveals that most of his production came against weaker fields. Gonzales' best finish came at the Mayakoba Classic where he finished 3rd and his next best effort came at the Barracuda Championship. Considering his struggles prior to last season on the PGA Tour, it's safe to say that Gonzales still has a ways to go before competing with the big boys on the PGA Tour. In draft leagues he should go in the 10th round or later.

131. Retief Goosen
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $921,830

Goosen will likely surpass the $30 million mark in career earnings on the PGA Tour this season. That speaks volumes to the success that he's had as a professional golfer, but at the age of 46, his best days are behind him. Including last season, Goosen now has a streak of five consecutive seasons under the $1 million mark. Though his play was improved last season, there wasn't enough to indicate that he's going to be the Goosen of old again this year. In draft leagues he should go in the 10th round or later.

132. Mark Wilson
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $851,845

Though he's won five times on the PGA Tour, Wilson has never shown much consistency. That's fine when you are winning, but when you can't find those wins, it makes for a long season. Wilson did not win last year, nor did he have any high-end finishes, but he did find three top-10s, which are primarily responsible for his placement inside the top-125 last year. The odds of Wilson winning again on the PGA Tour aren't great and as such, his upside is limited, which means he's not a good salary cap option this year. In draft leagues he's should go after the 10th round.

133. Charlie Beljan - M
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $782,546

Beljan got off to a great start on the PGA Tour in his rookie season of 2012 when he picked-up his first win and over $1.2 million in earnings. Since then however, he hasn't been quite as successful. Beljan's managed to keep his status over the past three years, but he's shown no signs of improvement during that time. Beljan's upside is not enough to justify a selection in salary cap formats this season. In draft leagues he should go after the 10th round.

134. Camilo Villegas - P
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $718,497

From 2006-2010, Camilo Villegas was one of the better players on the PGA Tour, but he hasn't been that player for a while now. Villegas saved his 2014-15 season with a mini-run during the FedEx Playoffs, but even with that run, his season-long numbers weren't impressive. With that said, he retained his card for the upcoming season because of his spot on the FedEx points list. Villegas doesn't appear to have the upside that he once had, so he's not a great salary cap option this season. In draft leagues, he'll go off the board after the 10th round.

135. John Huh - P
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $678,556

Huh could not have accomplished much more than he did during his rookie season of 2012. He picked-up his first win on the PGA Tour along with a runner-up finish and two other top 10s. Since that time though, his numbers have steadily declined. His earnings fell from $1.5 million, to $970k, to $678k last season. While his upside is clear, he's been heading the wrong way for the past three years. He's an intriguing salary cap prospect this season, but he still carriers a little too much risk. He'll likely be drafted because of the numbers he posted in 2012.

136. Wes Roach - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: $20,495

Roach had an impressive Web.com season with a win, a second and a third. He lost his card after so-so rookie 2014 season but could be better this time around. He's still only 26

137. Henrik Norlander - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$800,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

The 28-year-old Swede begins sixth in priority rankings. He had three top-25s as PGA Tour rookie in 2013, winding up 159th in points. Maybe he just wasn't ready then.

138. Patton Kizzire - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$750,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Fully exempt (aka not subject to the Reshuffle List) and in The Players as the leading regular-season money winner, things are nice at the moment for Kizzire. A strong Web.com Tour season, highlighted by two wins, first at the Utah Championship presented in early August in a playoff where he shot a second-round 62, and then three weeks later at the News Sentinel Open where he won in style, shooting two 64s on the weekend. He ranked first on the Web.com Tour in putting average and eighth in greens in regulation. If he can adapt to the new golf courses he'll be facing quickly, Kizzire has the game to make it on the big stage. Want further proof? Take note of this consistency: 23 starts, two wins, two seconds, a third, and 12 top-10s.

139. Davis Love III
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,263,596

Just when we were about to put Davis Love III out to pasture, he goes and wins again on the PGA Tour. It was a magical week at the Wyndham Championship, but there's a reason that no one expected Love III to win that week…he was 51 years-old. While it was a great story that week, the odds of Love III pulling off another win like that are just about nil. As such, he's not even an option in salary cap leagues and will likely go undrafted in draft leagues.

140. Alex Cejka
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,227,196

Alex Cejka's PGA Tour journey began in 1996 and over that season he averaged $13k per start. The purses have increased a lot since 1996, but that still wasn't a good number. Fast forward to the start of the 2014-15 season and Cejka had yet to pick up a win on the PGA Tour. That changed in March of 2015, when Cejka finally broke through at the Puerto Rico Open. That win ended being Cejka's only top-10 on the season, which looking at his career numbers, isn't that surprising. That win also inflated his number for the upcoming season and as such, he's not a good option in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he'll be taken very late or possibly not at all.

141. Jason Gore
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $1,101,246

Just when we were ready to bury Jason Gore, he totally redeemed himself. In the five years prior to last season, Gore had earned just over $400k combined on the PGA Tour. We all know about Gore's upside, but outside one good showing last season and a couple good showing a decade ago, there hasn't been much to get excited about. There's a reason he fell off the map for five years, so as intriguing as Gore is entering this season, there's just too much risk involved. Gore will likely be drafted late, but it's possible that he'll go undrafted in your league.

142. Blayne Barber - M
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $768,383

Barber did just enough in his rookie season to retain his card for the upcoming season, but he can't be happy how he got to that point. Barber missed the cut in eight of his final 10 starts, but he had built up enough money to hang onto the 122nd spot on the money list. Barber is going to get lost in a numbers game heading into this season. There are several rookies that played and looked better than Barber last season, so there isn't going to be room for guys like Barber. In draft leagues, Barber should go after the 10th round.

143. Mark Hubbard - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $293,980

Hubbard finished 164th in FedEx Cup points as rookie last season, so he wasn't too far off. He's 36th in priority rankings this season and is only 26, so better days are ahead.

144. Ben Crane - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $203,254

Crane's game mysteriously and unexpectedly fell off the map last season, but it's hard to imagine that he'll stay down long. Crane will turn 40 this season and while that's not the death knell that it used to be, it should temper expectations a bit. The days of Crane earning over $2 million in one season are likely over, but a significant improvement on his number from last season should be expected. As such, Crane should be heavily considered in salary cap leagues. He'll also be drafted at some point, likely in the later rounds, because of his name.

145. Peter Malnati - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$750,000
2014-15 Earnings: $0

Malnati had a Web.com win, five top-10s and 10 top-25s last season. He was PGA rookie in 2014 but had only 18 starts. At ninth in priority rankings, he should be able to get more starts.

146. Steve Wheatcroft
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $973,024

Wheatcroft earned more in 28 starts last season that he did in his previous 79 starts combined on the PGA Tour. That's called a break through, but it's also concerning when considering his prospects for the upcoming season. It's too early to tell if Wheatcroft will use last season as a springboard or regress to his prior form. As such, he carries too much risk for salary cap formats and might go undrafted in draft leagues.

147. Will MacKenzie - M
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $863,563

MacKenzie's had a bit of a resurgence the past two seasons, but most of his production has come in either the fall or the early part of season, before things start to heat-up. Last season he had an excuse though as he missed the final few months of the season after having knee-surgery. With that in mind, he carries a lot of risk entering this season because it will be one of recovery. In draft leagues he may go undrafted if not fully healthy prior to the season.

148. Ken Duke
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $817,675

In 2013, at the age of 44, Duke picked-up his first win on the PGA Tour. When most golfers pick-up their first win on the PGA Tour, it's all about the future and what will become of that guy, but that wasn't the case with Duke, after all, he was 44. With Duke, the talk was about how long he could last on the PGA Tour now that he finally won. Fast forward a few years and he's doing fine hanging in there, but when the calendar turns this year, he'll turn 47 and that's about the time guys start looking towards the Champions Tour.

149. Whee Kim - M
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $755,998

Kim's 2014-15 season came out of nowhere. He spent two years on the Web.com Tour, but didn't exactly have much success there, so his prospects on the PGA Tour looked bleak entering the season. No matter the outlook, Kim did just enough to sneak inside the top-125 on the money list and secure his card for the upcoming season. Kim might be on the way up, but he's too much of an unknown right now to take a chance on him in a salary cap format. In draft leagues he'll likely go undrafted.

150. Vijay Singh
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $752,462

There haven't been many guys on the PGA Tour that have thrived past the age of 50 and there's a reason for that. Singh is doing a great job of hanging in there, but it's only a matter of time before he moves onto the Champions Tour full-time. It happens to every golfer at some point, they realize that it's just not worth it to fight so hard for so little on the PGA Tour, while they could actually be winning on a different tour. Singh isn't there yet, but that moment could come at any time. He's obviously not a good salary cap option this year and is a bit of reach in draft leagues as well.

151. Chad Collins
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $747,899

Collins is a true grinder. He's made 128 starts on the PGA Tour in his career and he has only five top-10s, yet he's managed to earn his card four times. Collins has been at this a while and he's never really had a lot of success, so there's really no value for Collins in a salary cap format. In draft leagues he'll likely go undrafted this year.

152. Erik Compton - P
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $676,602

Compton's personal story may never be topped on the PGA Tour, but if we are talking about just the golf, then his prospects as a salary cap selection don't look good this season. Compton had a great season in 2013-2014, but he fell back to Earth last season. The 2013-2014 was really the only really successful season he had on the PGA Tour and it seems unlikely that he can repeat it this year. In draft leagues he'll go in the 10th round or later.

153. K.J. Choi - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $448,864

Choi's had an outstanding career, but his production began to tail-off in 2012 and it hasn't really come back since. Choi played pretty well during the 2013-2014 season when he picked-up two runner-up finishes, but at 45, his best days on the PGA Tour are behind him as evidence by his play last season. Choi is certainly capable of making a nice improvement on his 2014-15 number, but his upside isn't nearly what it used to be. The investment is pretty small however, so he's worth a look in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he'll likely go undrafted.

154. Jamie Lovemark - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $146,138

Lovemark earned card by finishing sixth on Web.com regular-season money list, not fluke hot streak in Finals. He starts seventh in priority rankings, so a little optimism is warranted.

155. Kevin Stadler - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$700,000
2014-15 Earnings: $42,160

Stadler played through a hand injury for part of the season, but finally hung it up mid-way through the season last year and his numbers reflect it. There's really no need to go into detail about Stadler's upside, as at this price, there's no need to think about taking him in a salary cap league. In other words, just do it. In draft leagues he should go in the 10th round or later.

156. Stewart Cink - P
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$650,000
2014-15 Earnings: $694,655

There aren't many golfers throughout the history of the game that have had such dramatic drop-offs as Cink. From 2003-2010, Cink compiled four wins, including one major, six runner-ups and least $1.5 million in earnings each season. Since the 2010 season however, Cink has struggled to crack the $1 million barrier. Cinch is on the backside of his career and such, holds little value in salary cap leagues this season. In draft leagues he'll likely go undrafted.

157. Jeff Overton - P
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$600,000
2014-15 Earnings: $561,614

2010 was quite the season for Jeff Overton. He ended the season with five top-3s, three of which were runner-ups, 10 top-25s and over $3.5 million in earnings. He also made a splash at the Ryder Cup that season and at the time, he was slated to be one of the next big stars on the PGA Tour. Since that time however, we've only seen glimpses of that player and more recently, we haven't seen that played at all. While the lure of the $3 million season will always be there, it doesn't seem likely that he'll get back to that spot. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this year. He'll likely go undrafted as well.

158. Lucas Glover - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$600,000
2014-15 Earnings: $515,241

Glover had six top-25s last season, but he's had only two top-10s in four years since winning 2011 U.S. Open. He's a good iron player but can't putt. That's a problem.

159. Steve Stricker - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$600,000
2014-15 Earnings: $269,701

Stricker's upside is nowhere near what it used to be and it's been well documented that he no longer wants to play many events on the PGA Tour, but at this price, he'll be hard to pass up. The problem with Stricker however, is that if he only plays 10 events, then he's got little room for error. It's this lack of wiggle room that keep Stricker from being a "must-have" this season, but though he's not a "must-have", he should be strongly considered in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he'll go in the 10th round or later.

160. Robert Garrigus - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$600,000
2014-15 Earnings: $253,699

Long off the tee, but not straight, Garrigus had horrid strokes-gained numbers, and his game collapsed. One can only imagine he will improve, but how much?

161. Roberto Castro - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$600,000
2014-15 Earnings: $179,723

Castro is 10th in priority list, so he'll get starts. But aside from 2013, has not taken advantage of opportunities. He certainly should see uptick from his paltry 2014-15 earnings.

162. Derek Fathauer - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$575,000
2014-15 Earnings: $482,023

After stellar Web.com season in 2013-14, Fathauer came to PGA Tour with high hopes, but definitely underperformed. Maybe he'll have a slight uptick as sophomore. Maybe.

163. Bronson Burgoon - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$560,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Victory can be sweet, and second - especially via a playoff loss -- can be crushing, but for Burgoon he can look back and and view his two second-place finishes as the source of his PGA Tour card. A playoff loss at the Nova Scotia Open on July 4th weekend and a solo second at Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship helped punch his ticket to the PGA Tour, aided by four other top-10 finishes in 25 starts. He ranked sixth in greens in regulation and 11th in the All-Around Ranking on the Web.com Tour in 2015, and if he can improve on his 60.64 percent driving accuracy that had him ranked 90th, we see a possibility for big things in 2015-16 for Burgoon. He begins the PGA Tour season 13th on the Reshuffle List, a pretty good spot.

164. Brian Davis - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$550,000
2014-15 Earnings: $656,534

The 41-year-old Brit was 143rd in FedEx with two top-10s and five top-25s but made only 14 of 31 cuts. At 48th in priority rankings, he needs to get off to fast start.

165. Ricky Barnes - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$550,000
2014-15 Earnings: $614,455

Barnes used three top-25s in last 5 starts to turn a disastrous season into simply an awful one. He starts 26th in priority rankings, which doesn't bode well.

166. Rhein Gibson - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$500,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Gibson finished 10th on Web.com Tour Finals list to clinch his PGA Tour card for 2015-16. Missed cut-T21-T9-4 is how his four-event Finals stretch went, with the Web.com Tour Championship the highlight, shooting weekend rounds of 65-65 to secure the card. That was a week in which he ranked first in birdies and first in putts per green in regulation. Conversely, he ranked 133rd in driving accuracy and 98th in greens in regulation for the season, two areas he will need to improve on for the PGA Tour to have a successful season. But with momentum and a ranking of 18th on the Reshuffle List, Gibson is someone to keep an eye early in the season.

167. Dawie Van Der Walt - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$500,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Van der Walt won twice in 2015, nabbing victories in his first start of the year, the Chile Classic, where he shot a 64 to open and 65 to close, and the Price Cutter Charity Championship in mid-August where he opened in 63. He sprinkled in four other top-10s and two more top-25s in 19 starts. He was third in greens in regulation, impressive since he ranked 42nd in driving accuracy and 68th in driving distance, putting him 32nd on tour in total driving. Those stats will need to improve if he wants to find consistency on the PGA Tour in 2015-16. On the plus side: He'll be first in the Reshuffle List to start the season. And that means more starts in the crucial fall slate.

168. Michael Thompson - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $599,835

Thompson has regressed since lone PGA win in 2013. He starts 14th in priority rankings but needs to perform in fall season or he'll drop. He'll drop.

169. Chez Reavie - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $331,623

Reavie was the leading money winner in Web.com Tour Finals, so he's exempt from the Reshuffle List. He'll get plenty of starts, but he hasn't produced big on PGA Tour in five years.

170. Justin Leonard - E
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $219,175

Leonard's play last season was so poor that he was finally forced to use his lifetime top-50 money list exemption this season. It will likely be Leonard's last full season on the PGA Tour is he doesn't turn things around this year. Though he under performed last season, it's not a sure-thing that he'll bounce-back enough to justify a selection in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues he'll likely go undrafted.

171. Martin Piller - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$500,000
2014-15 Earnings: $47,250

A two-time Web.com winner last season, Piller has PGA card for first time since his rookie year in 2011 when he crashed. But starting fifth in priority rankings gives him a fighting chance.

172. Kyle Stanley - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$450,000
2014-15 Earnings: $245,504

Stanley had only a dozen starts last season. He'll get more this season, but how many more? He starts at No. 22 in the priority rankings.

173. Rod Pampling - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$450,000
2014-15 Earnings: $189,055

The second-oldest Web.com grad at 45, the Aussie can't wait to get to the Champions Tour. He's 39th in priority rankings, so he starts toward the bottom. Should stay there.

174. Brett Stegmaier - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$400,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Four top-10s and eight top-25s, including an eighth, a fifth and a T18 in the Web.com Tour Finals clinched his card. His path to the PGA Tour came on the Web.com Tour Finals money list, where he finished ninth. So what changed to get him a card? For one thing, a game that had him ranked 85th in greens in regulation and 126th in putting average came alive. Take the fifth at the second Finals event, the Small Business Connection Championship at River Run. He was 21st in GIR and 11th in putts per GIR that week. He's certainly got momentum entering the PGA Tour's fall slate, so he may be someone to watch early if you like his form. He enters 16th on the Reshuffle List, a nice spot.

175. Thomas Aiken - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$400,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Aiken utilized nearly every avenue available to him to get onto the PGA Tour for 2015-16. A European Tour member, he tied for 23rd at Doral, 26th at Memorial, 25th at the U.S. Open and 80th at The Open Championship, earning 134 Non-Member FedEx Cup points, enough to get into the Web.com Tour Finals. There, he essentially put himself being the 8-ball after missing the cut in his first three Finals events before rallying to finish T5 at the Web.com Tour Championship to get his card. That's getting it done, especially on venues he's probably never seen before, something he'll face once again now as a member of the PGA Tour for the first time. Not in his favor? He's 44th in the Reshuffle List. Beware of that.

176. Andrew Loupe - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$400,000
2014-15 Earnings: $183,850

Loupe had one top-10 all last season -- in an opposite-field event. His good run in the Web.com Tour Finals was more fluke than reason for optimism, but he starts near the top of the priority list.

177. Dicky Pride - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$400,000
2014-15 Earnings: $39,414

The oldest Web.com grad at 46, Pride came out of nowhere with a win in final regular-season event. In 433 PGA starts, he has only 21 top-10s. He's waiting for the Champions Tour.

178. Steve Marino - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$400,000
2014-15 Earnings: $0

Injuries have derailed once-promising career for Marino. He has not played a full PGA season since 2011, and now his prime may have passed. He's 17th in the priority rankings.

179. Smylie Kaufman - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$350,000
2014-15 Earnings: $7,210

The best name of all the rookies joining the PGA Tour for next season also has the game to back it up. A win in May at the United Leasing Championship included a Saturday 64 and his second-place finish in August at the Price Cutter Charity Championship cinched his card. He must improve his consistency to thrive on the PGA Tour, as he missed a staggering 10 cuts in 20 starts on the Web.com Tour in 2015. The culprit? He ranked 106th in driving accuracy (59.01 percent) and 99th in greens in regulation (67.54 percent). Both those figures must go up for Kaufman to be a player on the PGA Tour in 2015-16. Kaufman begins the season 11th on the Reshuffle List.

180. Kelly Kraft - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$350,000
2014-15 Earnings: $0

If Kraft's name is familiar that's because he won the 2011 U.S. Amateur at Erin Hills over Patrick Cantlay. On the Web.com Tour in 2015 he got a win and a second, the victory coming in the Chitimacha Louisiana Open presented by NACHER in March where he shot a Sunday 65 and the second-place finish coming in the BMW Charity Pro-Am Presented by SYNNEX Corporation nearly two months later. He finished the year with three top-10s and eight top-25s in 23 starts, earningmore than $240K and a 19th starting spot on the Reshuffle List. As a result he'll need a strong fall to gain more starts in the early portion of the 2016 schedule, and that'll require some better ball-striking. He ranked 66th in driving distance, 94th in driving accuracy and 88th in greens in regulation. Those numbers will need to go up for the PGA Tour.

181. Derek Ernst - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$325,000
2014-15 Earnings: $320,085

Since his fluke win in 2013, Ernst has done squadoosh. Look for more squadoosh ahead. He starts 42nd in the priority rankings.

182. Rob Oppenheim - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$300,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Oppenheim has tried, for YEARS, to make it to the PGA Tour, but has always come up short. He thought this was yet another year of the same ending when he struggled down the stretch at the Web.com Tour Championship, but Lucas Glover's collapse on Sunday changed Oppenheim's earnings for the week and ensured he got his PGA Tour card for 2015-16. Oppenheim won the Air Capital Classic in June, a week that included a Sunday 64, and had a T13 in August at the News Sentinel Open. His stats aren't flashy -- he's sixth in putting average but 100-plus in several tee-to-green stats -- but if there's someone who'll probably feel like the Frys.com Open is a vacation, it's him. He starts the season 47th on the Reshuffle List.

183. Tim Wilkinson - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$300,000
2014-15 Earnings: $171,654

The New Zealander regressed after a decent rookie season, with 19 MCs in 28 starts. He starts 40th in the priority rankings, which is not good.

184. Hiroshi Iwata - I
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$300,000
2014-15 Earnings: $97,667

It may feel like it was years ago by now but just last fall Iwata nearly won the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai. He did not. Bubba Watson did. But that finish did help put him into the Web.com Tour Finals, where he parlayed a T4 finish at the opening event, the Hotel Fitness Championship, into a PGA Tour card for next season. Iwata only made three more starts on the PGA Tour last season, missing the cut in the first two before finishing T21 at the PGA Championship in August, a week where he ranked eighth in strokes-gained putting. Coming to a new Tour, there will be a learning curve, but he certainly has the talent to compete with the big boys. He starts the 2015-16 PGA Tour season 22nd on the Reshuffle List.

185. Lucas Lee - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$250,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Iif you're in the market for someone with momentum ... Lucas is not that person. He withdrew from the final three Web.com Tour Finals events, two after playing just one round and one - the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship - after three. No apparent reason was given, but it's something to watch. He earned his card via two second-place finishes in consecutive starts - a T2 at the Greater Dallas Open and a second at the Rust-Oleum Championship - but the withdrawals have him 45th on the Reshuffle List to start the season and a steep hill to climb starting out.

186. Darron Stiles - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$225,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

At 42, Stiles' PGA career dates to 1999, but he hasn't played an event since 2013. He starts 41st in the priority rankings, and that sounds about right.

187. Tyrone Van Aswegen - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$200,000
2014-15 Earnings: $168,234

Van Aswegen missed 12 of 20 cuts last season and was fortunate to finish 191st in points to get into Web.com Tour Finals. He'll struggle to get there again next season.

188. D.H. Lee - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$200,000
2014-15 Earnings: $38,985

No, not Danny Lee. D.H. was 15th in Web.com's regular-season money list and is 11th in the priority rankings. He has never come close to duplicating 2013 rookie season.

189. Shane Bertsch - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$200,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

The third-oldest Web.com grad at 45, Bertsch has two PGA starts in the last three seasons. He starts 27th in the priority rankings and should only fall from there.

190. Miguel Angel Carballo - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$175,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

The 36-year-old Argentine played on the PGA Tour in 2012 and 2014, totaling four top-25s in 40 starts. He won't reach either total in 2015-16.

191. Sung Kang - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$175,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Kang last played on the PGA Tour in 2012, when he me made just eight of 30 cuts. Combined with priority ranking of 43rd, it's not a pretty picture.

192. Luke List - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$150,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

List got his card thanks to one T5 in Web.com Finals. He flatlined as PGA Tour rookie in 2013, and there's little reason to envision a change. He starts 44th in the priority rankings.

193. Tyler Aldridge - W
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$150,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Aldridge gained his card via a Web.com victory and placing in the top 25 on the regular-season money list. But he hasn't played a PGA event since 2009. And he wasn't good then.

194. Michael Kim - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$100,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

Kim didn't win in 2015 but did nab two thirds and three other top-10 finishes. All told he made 19 cuts in 24 starts, earned over $190K and will start the 2015-16 PGA Tour season 33rd on the Reshuffle List. Like several others, strong play in fall would greatly help his chance of getting the proper number of starts to make a run at keeping his card. His game is actually pretty solid statistically: fifth in greens in regulation, 11th in putting average, fourth in birdie average and third in scoring average. Hit a couple more fairways on the big circuit and maybe the bounces will come his way next season. But it'll have to happen quickly or else that first reshuffle at the end of 2015 will make it much harder in 2016.

195. Abraham Ancer - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$75,000
2014-15 Earnings: NA

A dual U.S./Mexican citizen, Ancer won in a playoff at the Nova Scotia Open on July 4th weekend. He also finished second at the Brasil Champions in March. A hallmark of his season was inconsistency. He missed 14 cuts in 25 starts, which will have to be improved upon for someone who will start the 2015-16 PGA Tour season 29th on the Reshuffle List. Why the struggles at times? He ranked 66th in greens in regulation and a staggering 97th in putting average (there's no ShotLink on the Web.com Tour, thus no strokes gained stats). He also ranked 107th in birdie average and 62nd in scoring average. He needs a hot start or else his appearances on the PGA Tour in early 2016 won't be as many as he'd like.

196. Darren Clarke - I
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$75,000
2014-15 Earnings: $23,800

After taking a year off to campaign for next year's European Ryder Cup captaincy (which was successful), Clarke has rejoined the PGA Tour. But his game hasn't showed much promise of late -- he's now 550th in the world with a best finish of T15 at the Tshwane Open on the European Tour last March -- in a year marked more by withdrawals and missed cuts than anything else. Don't expect much this season.

197. Andrew Landry - R
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$35,000
2014-15 Earnings: $0

Landry won in his third start of the year, the Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship, which was his only top-10 of the season. Like several other rookies who'll be on the PGA Tour this year, consistency will be a potential issue. He made 14 cuts in 23 starts but only had five top-25s, indicative of finishes that were in the money but not in contention. Why? He was 76th in greens in regulation, 123rd in sand save percentage and 84th in scrambling. On tougher PGA Tour courses, that will need to improve, as his spot 43rd on the Reshuffle List requires quick, strong play.

198. Sangmoon Bae
2015-16 Proj. Earnings:
$0
2014-15 Earnings: $2,599,632

Sangmoon Bae is coming off his best year on the PGA Tour. Unfortunately for Bae, he's headed back to South Korea to fulfill his military obligation to his home nation. There's not much to add to that, if everything holds to form, Bae will not return to the PGA Tour until the 2017-2018 season. Stay tuned for any updates.
