Ollie Schniederjans
25-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Schniederjans spent several years on the European Tour before joining the PGA Tour full time during the 2016-2017 season. He wasted no time in getting acclimated as he finished in the top 40 on the FedEx points list and nearly cracked $2 million in earnings. Schniederjans fell back a bit last season, but not so much that it should worry anyone for this season. While Scniederjans was solid off the tee during his first season on the PGA Tour, he lost his way last season and ended up 173rd on tour in strokes-gained off the tee. A solid short-game saved him from falling out of the top-125 however. Through two seasons, he's put up good stats both off the tee and around the green, just not in the same season. His floor should be around where he finished last season and if he puts his all of his game together, his ceiling is pretty high. Read Past Outlooks
Falls outside top-30 on Sunday
February 4, 2019
Schniederjans struggled to a two-over 73 on Sunday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open to finish in a tie for 33rd place.
Schniederjans ranked T70 in fairways hit, but second in driving distance. That bomb and gauge kind of play did not work as well on Sunday when conditions were cold and wet. Schniederjans also needs to putt better than he did at TPC Scottsdale, as he ranked 57th in SG: Putting and 70th in putts per GIR for the week. This was still the best finish in nine starts this season, topping his previous best of a T57 at the Shriners Open. Schniederjans is not in the field for next week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Schniederjans made quite the splash in his first full year on the PGA Tour, by nearly cracking the $2 million mark. Schniederjans had plenty of success on the European Tour prior to his rookie season on the PGA Tour, but some pretty good players have been in a similar boat and failed to get much done in the states. The future is certainly bright for Schniederjans and even the bar was set pretty high last season, he has the game to improve significantly on his numbers from last season.
Ah yes, Schniederjans, the player we've known for years as the No. 1 amateur in the world, who nearly won the NCAA championship at Georgia Tech and finished T12 at an Open Championship, has made it to the big time. He got there by winning the Air Capital Classic on the Web.com Tour in a playoff, part of a season where he had a second and four other top-10 finishes. He also made seven PGA Tour starts, making the cut four times. In a weak rookie class, he's one of the studs, a fantasy player you can rely on early even as he gets his footing. It's interesting – sometimes the stats page makes you wonder why a guy even earned a card in the first place. Schniederjans was 141st in driving accuracy, 98th in greens hit and 30th in putting. But dig deeper and you'll find that in his win he ranked T2 in GIR and in a week where he made 20 birdies to finish ninth in the field, and that clearly helped the cause. If he gets more consistent, watch out. He's got a world of talent.
