Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring J.T. Poston
Patrick Reed's recent success around the greens makes him a golfer to target in this week's contests on Yahoo.
Jon Rahm probably did not earn himself many new fans last Sunday, but at the same time, he may have helped those playing in FanDuel contests this week.
Len Hochberg describes Rory McIlroy's gritty, hard-fought win at TCP Sawgrass, which was a long time coming for the star golfer.
Our Best Values rankings will help fantasy owners draft players who will significantly out-earn last year's money totals, like Jhonattan Vegas.
The RotoWire golf crew projected 2018-19 earnings for more than 200 golfers who have PGA Tour cards for this season. Will Dustin Johnson be the leading money winner?
Past Fantasy Outlooks
At an overall level Poston had a decent rookie campaign, as he made 71 percent of his cuts and posted four top-25s, including one top-10. A closer look reveals a streaky nature to Poston's game, as he made 9 of 10 cuts from February through May but then missed four straight cuts mid-summer and ended the season in mediocrity. With conditional PGA Tour status for 2017-18, Poston will need to find another hot streak despite his limited opportunities if he wants to regain fully-exempt status for next year.
No victories for Poston in 2016 but consistently high finishes ensured him a playing spot on the PGA Tour for 2016-17. That's especially impressive considering he didn't even join the Web.com Tour until June, and in fact played in the Canadian Tour's Qualifying School in March. He finished second twice, the first by shooting a final-round 64 at the Lincoln Land Charity Championship and the next by losing in a playoff at the Digital Ally Open. Couple that with a third in his second event of the year and a T6 in June and Poston quickly earned enough cash to make it to the next stage. The strength of his game is his irons and putter, where he ranked fifth in greens hit and 19th in putting average. Keep that consistency going on the next level and you could have a money machine.
