John Rollins is playing with Past Champion status on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15, and he is already off to a quick start.

The veteran is 83rd in the FedExCup standings thanks in large part to his T4 at the Sanderson Farms Championship, which was held opposite the WGC-HSBC Champions. He is a three-time winner on the PGA TOUR, and two of those wins came in opposite-field events. His start to the season is very important, as it could lead to future sponsor exemptions due to his longevity on TOUR.

Colt Knost has secured three cuts in five attempts to begin the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season and ranks 63rd in the FedExCup standings.

Knost has been the proverbial AAAA player, to steal a reference from baseball circles, bouncing between the Web.com Tour and PGA TOUR for the majority of his professional career. He began the new season with a T26-T18 run at the Frys.com Open and Shriners Hospitals for Children Open before missing two of his last three cuts. He ranks 12th in driving accuracy, which is a good thing when on considers he's 183rd in driving distance.

Scott Langley led off the 2014-15 campaign with a top 25 at the Frys.com Open and now sits at 113th in the FedExCup standings.

The University of Illinois product made big strides in 2013-14, landing in 77th position of the FEC race when all was said and done. The lefty was looking like a lock to take down his maiden victory, but had to settle for six top 25s instead. With 11 top 25s in 65 events, Langley is on the short list of golfers ready to breakout in 2014-15.

Robert Allenby opened his season with a bang before simmering to 74th in the FedExCup standings.

Allenby rattled off a T8 finish at the Frys.com Open to kick off the new season. Since then he's gone on to finish outside the top 40 in each of his four events. Allenby is coming off a season where he was the last man in the FEC Playoffs, the seventh Playoff appearance of his career. Gamers should temper their expectations moving forward.
Dec 18 - 8:25 PM

Max Homa showcased his upside over the fall and will enter 2015 ranked 91st in the FedExCup standings.

Homa signed for three top 45s in five attempts while ranking a lowly 212th in driving accuracy. The University of Cal product possesses a lot of potential, and will surely pop up near the top of leaderboards all season long. Homa is still young, just 24 years old, so gamers should look forward to an up-and-down 2014-15 season.
Dec 18 - 8:09 PM

Brian Davis has yet to crack the top 70 in any 2014-15 PGA TOUR event to start the new season.

The veteran has made two of his five cuts, with the paydays coming in the form of a 73rd at the CIMB Classic and a T73 in The McGladrey Classic. That has him weighing in at 201st in the FedExCup standings. Davis has been a stalwart on the PGA TOUR since 2005, but went without a top 10 last season. It appears the 40-year-old may be starting to slip, so invest with caution until he proves otherwise.
Dec 17 - 8:28 PM

Justin Hicks ranks 196th in the FedExCup standings at this early point in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

Considering how well he ended the 2013-14 season, it's a big surprise that he's performed so poorly in the early going. He finished alone in third at the John Deere Classic, and then was the runner-up in the Barracuda Championship in his very next outing. Since that near miss, he has missed six out of eight cuts including four out of five in the new season.
Dec 17 - 8:24 PM

Chad Collins cracked the top 30 in two of his three starts to begin the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

After missing the cut in The McGladrey Classic to start the season, Collins posted back-to-back T29s before the holiday break. He earned his card via the Web.com Tour Finals, so the early FedExCup points he netted was crucial in terms of the first reshuffle which occurred after his last start. He ranks 111th in the FEC standings.
Dec 17 - 8:20 PM

Retief Goosen ranks 33rd in the FedExCup standings four tournaments into his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

The veteran began his season by sharing third place at the Frys.com Open, and managed to make two of his three cuts after that result. He tied for 33rd in the CIMB Classic, which was his second-best finish of the early going, but that excitement can be tempered since it was a no-cut event. He bowed out of the 2013-14 FEC Playoffs in the 103rd spot, but he's well on his way towards a better result this time around.
Dec 16 - 9:48 PM

Zack Sucher has missed five cuts in as many starts to begin his rookie season on the PGA TOUR.

Sucher has cracked 70 just twice in 10 rounds. He also tried his luck at the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan, but missed that cut as well. Considering he had five top-six finishes on the Web.com Tour in 2014, including a win at the Midwest Classic, his start to the new season is a major disappointment.
Dec 16 - 9:43 PM

Luke Guthrie posted a 3-for-4 record during the fall, arriving at the new year ranked 152nd on the FedExCup leaderboard.

The University of Illinois product is showing more of that consistency that we grew to love during the 2013-14 season. He has yet to appear in the top 25 this season, but he's entering with 12 top 25s over the last two seasons and 15 in 61 career starts. At 24 years of age, Guthrie should be firmly planted on the horizon of gamers as a potential breakout candidate in 2015.
Dec 16 - 7:07 PM

Tyrone Van Aswegen showed signs of a sophomore slump, finishing the Fall Series with a 1-for-5 record.

TVA posted a pair of top 15s in the Web.com Tour Finals to regain his PGA TOUR card, and he flashed signed of upside last season (four top 25s), but he's not taking advantage early on this season. The South African collected but a single FedExCup point during the season opener at the Frys.com Open. Gamers have no choice but to wait for this drought to end before putting Van Aswegen back on their radar.
Dec 16 - 7:03 PM

Greg Chalmers will look to parlay his victory Down Under into a successful 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

Chalmers outlasted fellow countryman Adam Scott to secure the Australian PGA Championship last weekend. The win will provide the lefty with some additional outlets to enter strong-field events like the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Meanwhile on the PGA TOUR, Chalmers lefty went 3-for-3 during the Fall Series, yielding a pair of top 30s along the way. Gamers will continue to lack trust in him week-to-week, but his smooth putting stroke always gives him a chance to contend.
Dec 16 - 7:00 PM

Chris Stroud finished T23 in his final start of the fall and currently ranks 98th on the FedExCup totem pole.

Stroud is known for devouring short courses. He collected a pair of podium finishes during last season's Fall Series, so he must feel disappointing with this start. The Lamar University grad finished 47th in the FEC standings last season, his second straight inside the top 50. At 32 years of age, Stroud is in his prime years and will make a push at that coveted first PGA TOUR victory.
Dec 15 - 8:22 PM

John Merrick failed to impress over the fall, entering the holiday break ranked 137th in the FedExCup standings.

Merrick struggled with the driver during the Fall Series. Struggle is a relative word, but his current driving accuracy ranking of 114th is far lower than his usual placement most seasons. Without the luxury of playing from the short stuff, Merrick currently ranks 153rd in the strokes gained: tee-to-green. Given his lackluster 2013-14 season, gamers should take the wait-and-see approach before reinvesting.
