After winning twice during 2017, Xander Schauffele will have lofty expectations to reach during his sophomore campaign.

The San Diego State standout posted seven top 25s during his 2016 rookie campaign on the Web.com Tour (finishing 26th on the money list). Despite the step up in competition, Schauffele managed to find four more top 25s (11) during his PGA TOUR rookie season. That included a pair of wins, the most notable coming at the TOUR Championship to secure his Rookie of the Year award. Gamers hoping for an encore may be in trouble because two-win seasons are tough to replicate. However, the 24-year-old should continue to rack up birdies in bunches and provide loads of top 25s once we return from the holiday break.

Trey Mullinax posted a 1-for-4 record during the fall wraparound schedule, currently placing him in 109th on the FedExCup leaderboard.

Playing with conditional status for the 2017-18 season, the big hitter out of the University of Alabama will need to pick up the pace soon. Starts will be tough to come by, outside of the weakest of the fields. During his rookie campaign, he earned 16 paychecks in 28 starts but only six of them landed inside the top 40. That was a far cry from the stellar season he compiled on the Web.com Tour season, finishing 8th on the 2016 money list. Playing out of the 125-to-150 category, gamers should expect a big drop off in the number of starts compared to last season's 28. However, a few top 10s could change that in an instant, making him a great name to watch in weekly leagues whenever he earns a tee time.

Ryan Palmer will have six starts on a medical extension as he looks to rebound in 2018.

Palmer missed the fall portion of the 2016-17 season to be with his wife, Jennifer, during her battle with breast cancer. He returned to action at the start of 2017 but never found his form, going 10-for-20 to finish 134th in the FedExCup race. Since then, he's had minor shoulder surgery to remove some bone spurs and looks to be ready to return at the Sony Open. He'll need just 29.686 FedExCup Points to fulfill the terms of his medical exemption. One top 25 would likely do the trick, or he could string together a few top 50s and get the job done. Gamers should be cautiously optimistic that Palmer can return to form in 2018.

Justin Rose thrashed a magnificent 10-under-par 31-31=62 to take the first round lead in the Indonesian Masters at Royale Jakarta Golf Club, two strokes clear of Thailand's Gunn Charoenkul.

The Englishman wasted no time taking command of the course (and the field) on Thursday, opening up on the back nine and ticking his very first hole. He then added pairs of par-breakers before the turn at 14 and 15, then 17 and 18. On the front nine he went one better, circling a hat-trick at 2, 3 and 4 before completing the lap with birdies at 6 and 9. "A dream start," admitted Rose. "I felt comfortable from the outset. I did all the right things today, I put the ball in play from the tee so with ball in hand and placing the ball on the fairway, you had a perfect lie for every shot providing you put the ball in the fairway. It was there for the taking. No wind, it was perfect golf conditions." It was a poorer day for two men chasing a rise into the world top 50. Brandt Snedeker shot level-par 72 and Dylan Frittelli could only manage 4-over 76.

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson has begun the 2017-18 with two top-15 finishes, a T3 at the Safeway and T15 at the WGC-HSBC seven weeks ago.

The 47-year-old checks in at 35th in OWGR, dropping from 19th at the end of calendar-year 2016. He finished 34th in the FedExCup standings last season with five top 10s among 20 cashes in 22 starts, failing to qualify for the TOUR Championship for the third time in the last four years. Notably, the Californian did not log a podium finish for the first time since, well never, he's logged at least one every year since joining in the TOUR in 1992. He's stuck on 42 TOUR wins in 572 career events, last claiming victory at the 2013 Open, 92 starts ago. The Arizona State alum switched caddies in June -- to brother Tim -- who's remained on the bag since. In 80 rounds played last season, he only led/co-led one time, after R1 of the WGC-Mexico, eventually finishing T7.

World No. 377 Rory Sabbatini has begun the 2017-18 season with one made cut in four starts, a T77 (tied last) at the OHL Classic.

A T4 at the regular-season-ending Wyndham Championship back in August vaulted the South African from 148th in the FedExCup standings to 122nd, securing a return to full-exempt status. He chased that with a MC at THE NORTHERN TRUST, exiting the Playoffs at 124th in FEC points. The above-mentioned T4 for the University of Arizona product was his only top 10 last season in 23 starts but logged six top 25s, enough to prevent back-to-back trips to the Web.com Tour Finals. It was also his first top 10 since T10 at the 2015 Crowne Plaza Invitational 51 starts prior. The 41-year-old is a six-time TOUR winner in 477 career events, most recently at the 2011 Honda Classic where he was the 54-hole leader by five and won by one.

World No. 1904 Tim Clark has opted to use his top-50 career earnings exemption for the 2017-18 season instead of a Major Medical Extension.

The 41-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Dec. 17th, has not teed it up since a MC at the 2016 CareerBuilder 99 weeks ago. That was one of only seven starts in the 2015-16 season, having also missed 22 weeks during the 2014-15 season due to a left elbow injury. The NC State product is a two-time TOUR winner in 309 career events, claiming the 2010 PLAYERS and the 2014 RBC Canadian Open. Since the RBC, 176 weeks ago, he's made only 25 starts, logging one top-10 finish. It's unclear as of press time when the South African will actually return to action.

Ricky Barnes is playing the 2017-18 season, his 10th on TOUR, on conditional status.

The 36-year-old ended calendar-year 2016 at 216th in OWGR and has dropped to 349th. He ended last season at 139th in the FedExCup standings with seven top 25s among 19 cashes in 31 starts and failed to record a top-10 finish for the first time since 2013. The California native, who lives in Phoenix, made five starts in the fall portion of this season's wraparound schedule, making two cuts, including a T10 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms four starts ago. His career best is T2 at the 2009 U.S. Open during his rookie season, one of only four top-3 finishes in 271 career TOUR events.
