Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Aaron Wise
Bubba Watson is about as chalk as it gets at the Genesis Invitational, but he lands among our "Risers" in this week's Golf Barometer for more reasons than just course history.
Justin Thomas was the most expensive player in the annual RotoWire staff golf auction, in a mild surprise over Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy, in a format that gives a guide for season-long leagues.
He's not the biggest name in the field, but Collin Morikawa should still make plenty of noise in DraftKings contests this week.
The RotoWire golf crew projected 2019-20 earnings for more than 200 golfers who have PGA Tour cards for this season. Will Justin Thomas be the leading money winner?
Our Best Values rankings will help fantasy owners draft players who will significantly out-earn last year's money totals, like Bryson DeChambeau.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Wise wasn't among the top of his Web.com Tour class prior to his entrance to PGA Tour, so expectations weren't exactly high for him, and there was nothing on the course that Wise did early last season to catch much attention, but that changed at the Wells Fargo Championship in May. Wise finished runner-up at the Wells Fargo and in case anyone thought that effort was a fluke, he put all questions to bed the following week when he won the At&T Byron Nelson. He did miss five cuts directly following that win, but he recovered with a pair of top-10s later in the season. If Wise had a long track record of success, he might be in-play in salary cap formats this season, but since we only have one year to go no, he simply carries too much risk.
The former NCAA champion from the University of Oregon has already enjoyed several levels of success as a professional, securing both his first Web.com victory and PGA Tour top-10 during his 2016-2017 campaign. He first gained momentum with a T10 finish at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open back in November, but the highlight of his summer came at the Air Capital Classic in June where he fired back-to-back 62s in his first two rounds and led wire-to-wire. Despite ranking just 72nd in terms of ball striking on the Web.com Tour, Wise could be in line for one of the more successful PGA Tour careers out of this year's class of rookies.
