Past Fantasy Outlooks
Scheffler's upside is one of the great unknowns heading into this season. He appears to have an upside similar to an elite player, but he's only two years into his PGA Tour career, which makes it hard to determine at this point. He also has yet to win on the PGA Tour, yet he posted more than $4.5 million in 2020-21. Imagine what he's capable of if he starts winning. Scheffler may be already peaking, it's tough to tell, but it looks like he can take his game higher. As such, he makes for an interesting salary cap option this season.
What a rookie season for the former Texas Longhorn. He notched double-digit top-25s and secured a spot at the Tour Championship. After a mid-season lull, he turned it on down the stretch and could have won multiple times. Scheffler's ball striking provides reason for optimism, ranking eighth in SG: Off-the-tee and 17th in SG: Tee-to-green for the season. He also was top-15 in birdie average and scoring average. Scheffler's short game should continue to get better going forward.
Prior to nabbing a victory at the first leg of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals in mid-August, Scheffler had already secured his PGA Tour card for the upcoming season by winning the Evans Scholars Invitational as the cherry on top of a stretch on the KFT that included results of 2-5-T7-2-Win beginning with late March's Savannah Golf Championship. He'll enjoy rookie status on the PGA Tour throughout the 2019-20 campaign, but the former Longhorn standout already has major tournament experience, having teed it up at three U.S. Opens as he earned Low Amateur honors at the 2017 edition. Scheffler missed the cut at the 2019 U.S. Open, but he notched a top-20 finish at the Valero Texas Open and collected nearly $150k despite making only four starts at the PGA Tour level. On the KFT, he ranked fifth in GIR percentage, 10th in putting average and led his peers in birdie average.
