31-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
After struggling to retain his card during his first three seasons on the PGA Tour, Hoge had a breakthrough season in 2017-18, when he cleared more than $1.3 million and finished 80th on the FedEx list. Last season, however, Hoge regressed to his previous form and again battled the entire season to get into the top 125, which he failed to do. He got his card back via the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. He has shown some upside, but he's also shown just average ability in four of five seasons on the PGA Tour. Read Past Outlooks
5th place at Torrey Pines
January 26, 2020
Hoge closed with a four-under 68 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to move into solo fifth place.
Hoge was only two-under-par after the first two rounds, but a nine-under weekend helped him surge into the top-five. He can credit his ball striking for that, as he ranked second in both SG: Approach and SG: Tee-to-green this week. Huge was also first in scrambling percentage. The 30-year-old is really trending after going T12-T6-5th the last three weeks. Hoge will look to do even better next week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

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 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 Tour, and a chance to fix all aspects of his game. His strokes gained-total ranking was a poor 147th.
Hoge used the Tour Finals to seal his card for the 2014-2015 PGA Tour season after failing to get a top-10 finish on the 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 Tour season could spell trouble on the big stage. Fantasy owners need to be patient and see how Hoge plays.
