Golf Draft Kit: 2015-15 Best Values
Golf Draft Kit: 2015-15 Best Values

This article is part of our Golf Draft Kit series.

Below are our best values for the 2015-16 PGA Tour season.

A player's grade is based solely on his value for 2015-16. The value compares 2014-15 earnings vs. 2015-16 projected earnings. A player like Ryan Moore might earn a "D" grade or lower, but that is no indication of how he will play this year. It is simply a result of how his 2015-16 projected earnings compare to his 2014-15 earnings.

Improvement percentage (2014-15 earnings vs. 2015-16 projected earnings) is the factor that drives the grading process. Anything positive is a good score, though a slight positive score might just reflect inflation in the prize money.

Ranking includes only 2015-16 PGA Tour card winners who played at least 10 events on last year's tour:

Top 125 on PGA Tour Money List (M = made money list only)
Top 125 on FedEx Cup Points List (P = made points list only)
PGA Tour Card Winners from Web.com Tour (W)
Notable Exempt Players not in Top 125, i.e. Tiger Woods (E)
International Players (I)
