PGA Tour DFS Preview: Ranking Incoming Class

Thanks for stopping by to read my 2018-2019 top 10 rankings! Each year, the Tour will produce anywhere from 10 to 20 first time rookies, and 50 golfers total will graduate to the PGA Tour. If you are not familiar with the structure of the Web.Com Tour, here’s a quick refresher: 25 golfers from the regular season (all events except the last four) received their PGA Tour card, and the top 25 golfers from the Web.Com Tour finals series (last four events) also earned a spot.

Below I’ll cover my favorite first-timers on the PGA Tour. Qualifications are simple: If you’ve never played a full season on the PGA Tour, you qualify.

But first, let’s take a look at some stats on from this year’s #WEB50:

Players under 25: 13
Players Over 30: 8
First Time Tour Rookies: 21
Returning Tour Players from the 2017-2018 season that earned their card back through the Web.Com Tour finals: 17*+ Fritelli
