Adam Hadwin

Adam Hadwin shot a 2-under 70 Sunday to tie for 21st at the CIMB Classic.


Last season Hadwin enjoyed a solid year of play but only contended for victory once, but a top-25 early in the year may be a good momentum builder for a year of improvement. Look for Hadwin to make plenty of cuts this season if nothing else, a good reliable lineup filler.

Paul Casey

Paul Casey shot a 2-under 70 Sunday to tie for 21st at the CIMB Classic, ending his streak of four top-5 finishes.


Casey may have ended his streak of closely contending every week, but a top-25 is nothing to scoff at, despite the limited field. Casey should be considered a top-notch option this fall given his recent play. He will look to close the deal on a PGA Tour win for the first time since 2009.

Ryan Moore

Ryan Moore closed with a 2-under 70 Sunday to tie for 17th at the CIMB Classic, his first time outside the top-10 since 2011.


Moore's ironclad record in Malaysia was again reinforced, although his tie for 17th remains his worst finish outside of a WD in 2011. Moore recorded 20 birdies on the week against eight bogeys and will look to build on last season's long finish with continued momentum this fall.

Si Woo Kim

Si Woo Kim finished with a 6-under 66 Sunday to tie for 10th at the CIMB Classic.


Kim was able to muster up his first bogey-free round and second 66 of the week Sunday as he slipped into the top-10 for a nice finish. Kim enjoyed a breakthrough year last season with his maiden victory and is off to another good start in the new wraparound year.

Hideki Matsuyama

Hideki Matsuyama fired a 6-under 66 Sunday to finish runner-up to champion Justin Thomas at the CIMB Classic.


Matsuyama lit up the scorecard with one eagle and 23 birdies on the week as he stormed up the leaderboard to a lone runner-up finish in Malaysia. It appears Matsuyama has translated his late surge in the FedEx Cup playoffs last month to the new wraparound season, so look for good things from the Japanese star this season.

Derek Fathauer closed with a 5-under 67 Sunday to tie for third at the CIMB Classic.


In his first two events of the new season, Fathauer has already matched last season's total of two top-15s. Fathauer's strength this week was bogey avoidance, as he committed just two bogeys on the week. Fathauer appears to be headed toward a career year, so he's a definite consideration for fantasy lineups in the short term.

Sergio Garcia

Sergio Garcia will skip the first two out of three postseason events on the European Tour next month, Golfweek reports.


Garcia is guaranteed a spot in the final event of the European Tour playoffs – also known as The Final Series – so he will play a couple PGA events over the next couple weeks before resting up in advance of the final event on the European Tour this year, the DP World Tour Championship. As for the PGA tournaments on Garcia's horizon, he is in the field for this week's CIMB Classic, and is also scheduled to play in next week's WGC-HSBC Champions event.

Matt Kuchar

Matt Kuchar surprisingly missed the cut at the Safeway Open, carding rounds of 70-72.


Among a significantly weaker field in Napa this week, Kuchar seemed to be a sure fire bet to contend as he usually is. Some serious struggles with the flat-stick, however, led to an unexpected early exit for the world's 19th-ranked golfer. Expect him to get back on track following a brief break in action from Tour play.

Brian Campbell dropped 33 slots on the leaderboard into a tie for 50th at the Safeway Open after posting a one-over 73 in the closing round.


Campbell jolted himself into contention in Napa this week, after five straight birdies on the front nine of his Saturday round left him at an impressive 11-under-par through 45 holes. The rookie was, unfortunately, unable to capitalize on his early success, as he dropped four shots over the remaining 27 holes, and fell outside the top 25. The University of Illinois-alum remains, however, a major threat to be a continuous contender on Tour this season, especially as he gains experience.

Jonas Blixt

Jonas Blixt failed to qualify for the weekend at the Safeway Open after firing a two-under-par total through two rounds of play.


An opening round 70 put Blixt in the thick of things heading into Friday. The Swede was unable to make the most of his solid start, however, as a dreadful performance of the tee and just 8-of-18 greens in regulation lead to five bogeys in the second round. The Tour veteran is in need of more consistent play if he hopes to be a factor in the 2016-17 season.

Robert Streb

Robert Streb missed the cut at the Safeway Open, carding rounds of 73-76.


Coming off a seven week hiatus from Tour play, Streb had some clear rust in Napa this week. He carded just two birdies on the week, and was really held back by his ball striking as he lost over six strokes from tee to green. The world's 85th-ranked golfer will hope the 2016-17 season will be an improvement from just one recorded top 10 last year.

Charles Howell III

Howell shot a four-over-par total through 36 holes in Napa, and missed the cut by a healthy seven stroke margin.


Following a rough two-over 74 start to the week, Howell seemed to rebound well on Friday, going two-deep through his first 16 holes. This placed him a couple strokes shy of the cut line, but with a low scoring par-five ahead, qualifying for the weekend was not out of the question. The American, unfortunately fell very short of this goal, making a nine on the par-five ninth. He'll look to rebound at the CIBM Classic this week.

Webb Simpson

Webb Simpson carded rounds of 74-73 at the Safeway Open and failed to make the cut.


After an early exit in the FedEx Cup Playoffs, stemming from poor late summer play, Simpson was still unable to rebound following his six week break from Tour action. The Wake Forest-alum was actually sensational ball striking, hitting 86% of greens in regulation, but the American's struggles with the flat-stick continued as he lost over eight strokes on the greens alone. Simpson's got the swing to contend, he just needs to get his putter rolling.

Hunter Mahan

Hunter Mahan posted rounds of 73-76 at the Safeway Open, missing the cut by eight strokes.


Mahan had a rough go at in Napa this past week. He looked terrible ball striking, losing nearly seven strokes to the field from tee-to-green and was merely average putting this week. The former world number four has now missed eight of his last nine cuts and should be avoided in fantasy formats given his recent play.

Charley Hoffman

Charley Hoffman went two-under-par through 36 holes of the Safeway Open, but failed to make the cut by just one stroke.


Posting a three-under 69 in the opening round, Hoffman seemed prime to at least make a weekend appearance. Three back-nine bogeys on Friday, however, led to an early exit for the UNLV-alum, who struggled to get his putter going. The American did, however, hit over 80% of greens in regulation, so that is very encouraging heading into the remainder of the fall series.

Bud Cauley carded a two-under 70 in the final round of the Safeway Open, but still fell 10 spots down the leaderboard into a tie for 50th.


A five-under 67 on Friday launched Cauley into contention, but merely average play over the weekend led to a rather disappointing finish. The University of Alabama-alum struck the ball beautifully in Napa this week, finishing eighth from tee to green. A dreadful week on the greens, however, proved costly as the big-hitter just couldn't get the flat-stick to roll smoothly. Cauley will not be in the field for the CIMB Classic.

Zac Blair

Zac Blair fell to a three-over 75 on Sunday, causing him to drop 22 slots on the leaderboard into a tie for 62nd at the Safeway Open.


While it was certainly not the finish Blair was hoping for, a five-under total prior to Sunday still made for a solid rebound from a missed cut on the Euro Tour a week prior. The third-year Tour player found a lot of pars in Napa, but really needed to go low at Silverado to contend. He'll hope to refocus and get his game back on track ahead of this week's CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur.

Nick Watney rallied to a five-under 67 in the final round of the Safeway Open to finish in a tie for 35th.


Sidelined from PGA Tour competition since January because of a series of injuries, Watney rebounded in decent form with rounds of 71-69-73-67 in Napa. He looked great with his wedges, but has some understandable rust with his longer game. This should, however, go away with more competition, but it none the less should be monitored. As of now, most signs point to a rebound in the 2016-17 season for the American.

Roberto Castro

Roberto Castro moved up five slots on the leaderboard into a tie for 35th after posting a three-under 69 in the final round.


Following a sensational 2015-16 PGA Tour campaign that brought Castro from 354th in the world to 66th, the American stayed on track with a solid showing in Napa. While he did not have the fire power to eclipse the top 25, rounds of 69-72-70-69 show promising signs of consistency. Expect Castro to be a contender throughout the fall series. He is not, however, in the field for the upcoming CIMB Classic.

Trey Mullinax carded a three-under 69 in the final round of the Safeway Open to finish T22.


Aside from back-to-back double bogeys in the second round, it was a remarkable week for Mullinax in Napa. The rookie absolutely destroyed the ball off the tee, averaging 305 yards per drive, and looked solid in most other departments of his game, gaining strokes on the field in all categories. As a part of the Alabama Championship teams and a winner on the Web.com Tour, Mullinax has the skills and experience to be a contender in the 2016-17 season.
