Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Keith Mitchell
Keith Mitchell has played some quality golf of late, and Greg Vara considers him an appealing option in several types of contests this week.
Rory McIlroy wasn't quite himself over the past few months, but he washed that all away over the weekend with his third career win at the Wells Fargo Championship.
Distance off the tee will be a major factor this week, and Bryce Danielson believes that makes Luke List a value play in this week's contests on Yahoo.
The team comprised of Australians Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith took down all competitors and claimed the title on the 73rd hole at TPC Louisiana.
Shane Lowry shouldn't be bothered by the conditions this week, and that helps him land a spot among Bryce Danielson's golfers to go after in the next contests on Yahoo.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Mitchell finished runner-up at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship and 3rd at the AT&T Byron Nelson, but he probably earned more air time for crashing the top-70 while playing at the Dell Technologies Championship in early September. Lost in all of that perhaps was that Mitchell was a rookie this season...who finished inside the top-70 on the FedEx points list. Not a bad start to one's career. In addition to the runner up and 3rd-place finish, he posted two additional top-10s throughout the season and made 21 of 29 cuts. Mitchell is just 26 and he could be an elite player someday, but the fact remains that there's a lot unknown about him at this stage. As such, the bar is simply set too high to take him in a salary cap league this season.
After missing out on the top-25 on the Web.com Tour and automatic PGA Tour exemption by just one slot, Mitchell forged through the Web.com Tour Finals with a strong showing to earn his PGA Tour card for the first time. On the Web.com last year Mitchell posted six top-10s including his best finish, a third at the News Sentinel Open. Mitchell's clear strength is his immense length off the tee that affords him plenty of birdies or better on par-5s, but the rest of his game has room for improvement. Mitchell could surprise at some weaker-fielded events where length is advantageous, but otherwise shouldn't be on your radar this season.
