Past Fantasy Outlooks
Herrron managed only two top-10s last season and both came during the fall season. It was not a great year for Herron in 2012, but he lives to fight another day with his position on the money list. His days of highs and lows have been replaced by mediocre play and lows.
Herron just refuses to go away and refuses to change his style. With Herron, it’s all or nothing, and for most of the last five years it's been nothing. Fortunately for Herron, he was able to find his game three times last season. The first time came at The Heritage in June when he finished T4. The second came in June at the Fed Ex St Jude Classic when he finished T3 and the third came at J.T. Shriners Open when he finished T5. Herron has always operated that way, though in years past he would turn those Top-5s into wins.
Herron better known as "Lumpy" on tour has been goign backwards over the last three years. Playing with conditional status and being a past champion will get him in close to 20 events, but his ball striking and putting will keep him from getting inside the top 125 unless there is drastic improvement.
Herron had a very unusual 2008 season. Unusual for him anyway. He earned his money in a consistent fashion throughout the entire year. A departure from the player best known for his hot streaks. The down side to that consistency however was a lack of top-five finishes, only one the entire year.
Tim Herron is as streaky as they come on the PGA Tour. If he happens to get hot, he can play with anyone on tour. The question is, will he get hot for one week in 2008? How about two or three weeks? Will he get hot at all? As you can see, it's almost impossible to predict what Herron is going to do on a yearly basis. My guess is that if he gets hot at all, it will only be for one week, which means his upside is limited.
If you are looking for consistency, look elsewhere. Herron's stats from 2006 are absolutely brutal. He ranked lower than 150th in the three major categories. How did he end up at No. 37 on the money list? Like many streaky players, he found a hot stretch during the season last year. Herron had only four top-25s last year, three of them came consecutively over a four-week span. Within that stretch he won the Bank of America Colonial. It's hard to be fond of drafting players like this. They absolutely must win at least once during the year to justify the pick.
Herron earned more than $2 million last year by often hovering near the first page of the leader board. He did not card a win, or even a runner-up finish but was able to sneak into the top-10 seven times in 28 tries. That's a good percentage. What's not good is the five-month span in mid-season where he was did no better than a 10th place. Herron is a hard player to figure out, and his play from last year isn't helping. He came out of the box strong, then dissappeared for five months, then finishished strong. Is the strong play at the end of the year a sign of things to come, or is it a sign of less than stellar competition? Can we choose niether? Look, Herron will always be good for getting hot in certain spots and dissapearing in others. Think of Herron as a watered down version of Kenny Perry. He's never going to win three weeks in a row, but he might play well for three weeks in a row and make a nice chunk of change.
Herron had a sandwich year in 2003, no pun intended. After three top-five finishes he pretty much disappeared until mid-August. Given the fact that Herron had not had a really good year since 1999, a regression could be in store this year.
