Past Fantasy Outlooks
While it wasn't an outstanding season, Spaun accomplished everything a rookie needs to on the PGA Tour last season. He had zero top-5s, but he recorded three top-10s, which coupled with a total of 18 paychecks, was enough to get him safely inside the top-125, which is the main goal of every rookie. Spaun will of course want to improve his overall numbers next season and to do so, he should start with some work in the bunker as he ranked 159th in sand saves last season. It's seems like such a small part of the game, but a stroke here and there can mean the difference between a top-15 and a top-10 and those top-10s add up. It's too early to tell which direction Spaun will go from here and without having much of a track record to go on, he's carries too much risk at this price in salary cap leagues.
Spaun registered one victory – the News Sentinel Open in late August – two seconds and seven top-10s in 2016 on the Web.com Tour, easily sealing his spot on the PGA Tour for 2016-17. The win included middle rounds of 62-64, two of four rounds of 64 or better he shot in competition this year. He also played the Northern Trust Open on the PGA Tour, missing the cut. He was second in greens in regulation on the Web.com Tour at 76.65 percent and was 12th in the all-around ranking. One negative is that he finished 89th in putting average, something that will have to change on the PGA Tour for him to be a strong fantasy player.
