Past Fantasy Outlooks
Hoge's first three seasons on the PGA Tour were a complete grind. He failed to crack the top-125 in any of those three seasons and he topped-out at $690k in earnings in 2015. The two seasons following his rookie season of 2015 saw a decline in his overall numbers, but last season he bounced-back and set a career-high in earnings. That career-high in earnings was due in large part to a solo-third at the Sony Open in January. The problem is, that 3rd-place finish was his only top-10 last season. Hoge has every right to improve again this season, but you don't want to bet on a guy who might get better. With a floor well below his price tag and a ceiling that doesn't look much higher than $1 million, Hoge is not a good salary cap option this season.
Hoge has now failed to finish top-125 in the FedExCup standings for three consecutive years, but earned his PGA Tour card back for the upcoming 2017-18 season thanks to a top-25 performance in the Web.com Tour Finals. This past season he struggled mightily off the tee, ranking outside of the top-150 in both driving distance and driving accuracy. He'll look to improve upon his 10 made cuts throughout his 2017-18 campaign.
Hoge had two top-10s, T9s at RSM and Valero, but 12 missed cuts in 26 starts doomed any realistic chance to keep his PGA Tour card for 2016-17. Out of the conditional category he'll get some starts here and a lot on the Web.com Tour, and a chance to fix all aspects of his game. His strokes gained-total ranking was a poor 147th.
Hoge used the Web.com Tour Finals to seal his card for the 2014-2015 PGA Tour season after failing to get a top-10 finish on the Web.com Tour until July and having no top-5 finish until his third at the Chiquita Classic, the second Finals event. Overall he went T53-3-T22-T52 over the four Finals events, and will look to take that momentum into the fall. On the flipside, he’s not overly impressive statistically, and the lack of a top-10 for the first half of the Web.com Tour season could spell trouble on the big stage. Fantasy owners need to be patient and see how Hoge plays.
