Past Fantasy Outlooks
Kraft failed to secure his full playing privileges during his rookie season of 2015-16 , but he made sure not to fail again during his second season. Kraft is anything but consistent, but from time to time, he's really good. Kraft proved as much when he finished runner-up at the AT&T Pro-Am in February and proceeded to back that up with top-5s at the Zurich Classic and the Greenbrier Classic. Kraft will need to show some more consistency in order to take his game to the next level, however. Kraft should improve this season, but not enough to justify a salary cap selection this season.
Kraft rode a rollercoaster last season. He struggled out of the gate in his first full season on the PGA Tour to miss four of six cuts but then went on a run at season's end, making five of six, including a T5 at the John Deere Classic. He still needed a trip to the Web.com Finals to secure his 2016-17 card but missed the first two cuts before a T5 at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship saved him. Perhaps more familiarity with PGA courses will help his consistency in his second year on tour.
Kraft, Southern Methodist University senior, won the 2011 U. S. Amateur, 2-up, over Patrick Cantlay.
