World No. 68 Wesley Bryan heads into the holidays ranked 121st in the FedExCup race, hopeful to continue his winning ways when the TOUR returns in January.

The 27-year-old went 19-for-28 during his rookie season to finish 41st in the FedExCup standings. That campaign featured five top 10s including a win at the RBC Heritage. In other years he would have been a strong candidate for Rookie of the Year honors but it was a very strong class he was competing with. His lack of RoY hardware shouldn't deter season-long gamers from investing in Bryan ahead of 2018. In 50 career starts across the Web.com Tour and PGA TOUR, he's racked up four wins (8 percent win rate). If he continues at that rate on the big stage he would go on to post a Hall of Fame career. It's easy to see why he wins so much as he's one of the best iron players and best putters in the world right now. His lone weakness is an extreme lack of distance off the tee, making him a great target for all of the shorter venues in 2018.

Seung-Yul Noh has played his last PGA TOUR event for quite some time as he headed off to serve his military duties following his appearance at The CJ CUP @ Nine Bridges.

In late November, the 26-year-old packed his bags and is beginning his two-year military commitment back in South Korea. Noh has been winding down in anticipation of this service, but he couldn't pass up a chance to play in his home country when a late WD opened up a spot for him. Similar to Sangmooon Bae, when Noh returns he will fall under the Major Mandatory Obligation category in terms of PGA TOUR status. Similar to a Major Medical, he will be given a large slate of starts to match the number of FedExCup Points needed to land inside the top 125 for that first season he missed. The 2014 Zurich Classic champion can be safely dropped in all fantasy circles.

Colt Knost went 1-for-3 during the wraparound fall portion of the schedule, still shaking off the cobwebs after returning from injury.

The SMU product was forced to shut down early last season, lasting just five starts before a wrist injury kicked in. Now, he's playing the 2017-18 season on a Major Medical, needing 356.577 FedExCup Points over his next 20 starts to maintain status. His injury came at an inopportune time as he was coming in fresh off a career year, earning $1.59 million during the 2015-16 season, nearly 40 percent of his career total. The 32-year-old has never relied on distance so a wrist injury shouldn't affect him near as much as it would for some. Once he gets locked back in with his wedges and putter he should be back to his old ways of piling up top 30s.

Justin Rose is still the man to catch in the Indonesian Masters at Royale Jakarta Golf Club after moving to 14-under but he faces an early alarm call on Saturday after a delay in Friday's second round left him with two holes to complete.

World No. 6 Rose started the day two clear after a brilliant opening 62 and continued on his merry way with four more red numbers at 4, 5, 6 and 9. He picked up another shot at 11 but following pars at 12 and 13 the Englishman had to take cover due to lightning activity. The delay didn't help him and Rose dropped his first shot of the week with a bogey-4 at 15, parred 16 and hit his approach to the edge of the par-4 17th before the hooter went for bad light. That slightly scratchy finish meant he ended the day just two clear of Kiradech Aphibarnat, who jumped up four spots to solo second with a flawless 64. It's a further stroke back to Giwhan Kim in third. Rose, along with 35 others, will complete their rounds when play resumes Saturday at 06:15 local.

Brandt Snedeker flew from Florida to Indonesia via New York and Hong Kong to play the Indonesian Masters, seeking to move into the world's top 50 before the end of the year, but his endeavour came to nothing when forced to withdraw at Royale Jakarta GC.

It was a huge effort by the 37-year-old, seeking to guarantee his invitation to the 2018 Masters, but perhaps too much. TV commentator Richard Kaufman explained on Twitter that he had retired on Friday: "Suffering from heat exhaustion, he has walked in after 11 holes of his 2nd round #IndonesianMasters2017. He was 2 under par at the time, right on the cut line."

After winning twice during 2017, Xander Schauffele will have lofty expectations for his sophomore campaign heading into the new year.

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.
