Fantasy Impact: The 22-year old American was impressive throughout the tournament at TPC Summerlin but could not produce a final round score of 63, which is what he would have needed to defeat Sungjae Im as the outright winner. Nevertheless, in both of his events, Wolff has been great to start the 2022 PGA season and will look to continue his high-caliber play in Las Vegas at the CJ Cup this weekend.


Si Woo Kim

Mullinax didn't have a top-10 win since 2018, so he could be in store for a big year if he can transfer the T4 finish into the upcoming Shriners Children's Open at TPC Summerlin this weekend.


Andrew Landry

Andrew Landry fired consecutive six-under-par rounds to close out and place T4 at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Fantasy Impact: Landry completely flipped the script from his previous appearance at the Fortinet Championship, where he was cut following a pair of 77 rounds.

Fantasy Impact: A robust eight-under-par outing was delivered in the final round, which elevated the 34-year old Swede to finish T4 at the Sanderson Farms Championship this past weekend.

He will get his next opportunity at TPC Summerlin in the Shriner's Children's Open beginning Thursday.


Sam Burns

Sam Burns produced rounds of 68-66-65-67 to ascend the leaderboards and earn his second career PGA Tour victory. Burns finished at 22-under-par on the week to win by a stroke.

Fantasy Impact: The 25-year old native of Louisiana returned close to home and won the Sanderson Farms Championship this past weekend. Burns continues to build on the momentum he created in the 2021 PGA season, where he produced eight top-ten finishes but only one first-place finish. However, Burns didn't waste much time, winning the third tournament of the 2022 PGA season. As a result, he is now ranked first in the FedExCup standings heading into the Shriners Children's Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.
