2016-17 Fantasy Golf Outlook

Three years on the PGA Tour and Kang hasn't accomplished much in that time. Last year was the first that he finished inside the top-125, so he's showing some progress, but his cut percentage was just over 50% last season and he only managed two top-10s. It is encouraging that he significantly improved his cuts-made percentage last season, but there just doesn't seem to be much upside. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this year. In drafts, he'll go very late.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Three years on the PGA Tour and Kang hasn't accomplished much in that time. Last year was the first that he finished inside the top-125, so he's showing some progress, but his cut percentage was just over 50% last season and he only managed two top-10s. It is encouraging that he significantly improved his cuts-made percentage last season, but there just doesn't seem to be much upside. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this year. In drafts, he'll go very late.

2012

Kang spent most of his rookie season in limbo as his status for the upcoming season wasn't settled until the season's final event. Kang actually needed every bit of his third-place prize to sneak into the Top 125 last season. That's not exactly what fantasy owners want out of any of players, no matter what they pay. Kang might find the going a little easier this season after getting acclimated last year, but the difference won't be enough to make him draftable in either salary cap or draft leagues.
