Golf Draft Kit: 2019-20 International Newcomers

Golf Draft Kit: 2019-20 International Newcomers

This article is part of our DraftKings Euro Tour series.

This article covers international players who did not have a PGA Tour card last season but earned one for 2019-20. These are players who as non-members finished with the equivalent points to the top 125 on the 2018-19 FedExCup Points List. Earnings include money from PGA Tour events and WGC events.

Matthew Fitzpatrick
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,400,000
2018-19 Earnings: $1,553,750
2018-19 Events: 14

Fitzpatrick finished atop the non-member points list last season with 665, equivalent to 71st on the FedEx list to qualify for the PGA Tour this season for the first time. The Englishman seems poised for a big season.  He only missed one cut last season in stroke-play events and had some high finishes, including a solo second at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and T4 at WGC-Fed Ex St. Jude.  Fitzpatrick will be one to pay close attention to at the majors — he was T12 in 2019 and 2018 at the U.S. Open. He is a bit shorter off the tee but very accurate, and his putter tends to keep him in the hunt.  

Matt Wallace
2019-20 Projected Earnings: $2,350,000
2018-19 Earnings: $1,267,400
2018-19 Events: 12

Wallace only missed two cuts in 12 PGA Tour events last season, his highest finish coming at the  PGA Championship where he was T3. He also had a good week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, finishing T6. All told, he earned 461 non-member points for the equivalent of 105th place on the FedEx to earn his first PGA Tour card.
