This article is part of our Golf Draft Kit series.
Below are our Best Values for the 2019-20 PGA Tour season.
A player's grade is based solely on his value for 2019-20. The value compares 2018-19 earnings vs. 2019-20 projected earnings. A player like Rickie Fowler 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 2019-20 projected earnings compare to his 2018-19 earnings.
Improvement percentage (2018-19 earnings vs. 2019-20 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 prize money.
Ranking includes only 2018-20 PGA Tour card winners who played at least 10 events on last year's tour:
• Top 125 on FedEx Cup Points List
• Notable Exempt Players not in Top 125 (E)
• Conditional Status Players who Finished 126-150 on Points List (C)
• Non-Rookies from Korn Ferry Tour Finals (F)
• International Newcomers (I)
