Alex Prugh
34-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Prugh averaged nearly 23 starts per season on the PGA Tour in five campaigns ranging from 2010 to 2016, but he posted just one top-three in 113 career events. At the Tour level in 2018, the 34-year-old rattled off five top-10s and 11 top-25s to finish 18th on the regular season money list. Despite reaching his mid-30s, Prugh averaged nearly 315 yards off the tee and ranked top-10 in both birdie average and GIR percentage. Read Past Outlooks
Added to Valspar field
March 19, 2019
Prugh has been added to the Valspar Championship field as an alternate after J.J. Spaun (undisclosed) withdrew, Rob Bolton of reports.
Prugh hasn't finished higher than tied for 33rd in a tournament this season and has missed the cut in six of his last eight. Heading to a Copperhead Course that features five par 3s and rather narrow fairways, Prugh's strength, his length off the tee (36th on tour in driving distance), may not play up this week either.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
After only four made cuts in 16 PGA Tour starts, resulting in 206th in the point standings, Prugh played his best golf of the season in the Tour finals to come back for a fourth go-round on the PGA Tour. Being an economics major at the University of Washington, Prugh should know things don’t look much brighter for him monetarily this time.
Prugh missed the cut in almost half his 20 starts last season and did not win in 2013, so how did he crack the top-25 on the money list? Consistent play on the weekend. Five top-10s, two of which were top-3 finishes add up to a decent number.
Prugh had a solid rookie campaign that included four top-10s and a runner-up finish at the Open. He came out of the gate on fire last season, capturing three top-10s in his first four events, but his play fell after that stretch. In fact, from March through September, he was virtually non-existent. Fortunately for Prugh, he found his early season magic late in the year when he grabbed that runner-up finish. It's too early to tell if Prugh's mid-season swoon was a fluke; there's simply not enough to go on. That said, it's probably wise to pass on him this season. Prugh was pretty solid in three of the stats categories, with only driving accuracy as a problem.
