2013 PREVIEW: Geoff Ogilvy will be playing without a safety net this year as all of his exemptions for previous tournament wins have run out. The Aussie is too good a player not to persevere but he needs to start putting himself in contention again — Ogilvy only had one top-10 finish last year.
2012 DEFINING MOMENT: The seven-time PGA TOUR winner only missed two cuts last season but at the same time, he only broke 70 nine times in the first two rounds of his 20 starts. His scoring average before the cut dropped from 54th to 109th, as a result. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM
ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: One of my favorite players on TOUR. Maybe the best interview, Geoff offers insight you seldom get from other players. He is very smart and very talented. I tease him, that every time I see him play — he plays well. His answer? Walk with me more often then. — Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio
BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: He’s as overvalued as he is underrated. While he managed only one top 10 in 2012, he netted top 25s in half of his 20 starts and missed only two cuts. Perhaps the best label is that you know what you get here. He picks his spots, wiggles his way into a position to pounce, and then doesn’t let go. That allows for elevated confidence for gamers in need of reliable value in the heart of their rosters. And at $1.255 million, he’s on sale in salary formats. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
