Past Fantasy Outlooks
Werenski started the 2016-17 well, but a slump from February through June nearly derailed any hopes of retaining his card. A strong finish saved Werenski though and he's good to go for the upcoming season. Werenski's season on the whole was not very impressive, but goal number one for any rookie is to simply retain the playing privileges for the following season, so in that respect, the season was a success. Werenski's number is low enough that he's a decent candidate for salary cap leagues as it won't take much to significantly improve this season.
Werenski had a successful 2016 on the Web.com Tour, demonstrated by his win at the BMW Charity Pro-Am in May and three second-place finishes. Most impressive is that those seconds came at three times of the year — February, April, August. One thing that separates rookies who make the PGA Tour from those who stay on the PGA Tour is complete game consistency, and finishing high like that at different times of the year really helps. He ranked 16th in total driving but 73rd in putting, something he'll need to improve for the PGA Tour. He can contend once or twice, but stringing together multiple good appearances may be tough unless the putter improves.
