Patrick Cantlay
27-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Cantlay entered the PGA Tour with a lot of hype and through two seasons, he hasn't disappointed. Cantlay earned over $2 million in just 13 starts two seasons ago and he topped that last season with nearly $4 million in earnings. Cantlay picked-up his first PGA Tour victory in the fall of last season, but unlike many before him whose game dropped-off after a win, Cantlay kept his foot on the accelerator. Cantlay scored six more top-10s the rest of the way and he missed only two cuts all season. If there is a weak spot to this point, it's his performance at the majors. Cantlay earned only one top-25 at the majors last season. He should improve in that area this season, which should lead to an increase in earnings, possibly enough to make him a decent salary cap option. Read Past Outlooks
Second straight runner-up in Vegas
October 7, 2019
Cantlay fell in a playoff to Kevin Na at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open after a three-under 68 in the final round.
Cantlay was 20-under-par through three rounds, and yet still trailed Kevin Na by two shots coming into the final round. Cantlay made no progress on the front-nine, but a triple-bogey by Na at the 10th left the door open. Cantlay made birdies on four of the final seven holes to set up a sudden-death playoff. Both players made birdie on the first extra hole, but a bogey on the second by Cantlay would seal his fate. He has now gone 1st-2nd-2nd the last three seasons in Vegas. Cantlay's ball striking is as strong as ever, ranking first in SG: Off-the-tee, second in SG: Tee-to-green, and T2 in GIR's. He is not in the field for the Houston Open.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Cantlay accomplished what few people could last season as he made it to the Tour Championship with only 13 starts under his belt. It's tough to say where Cantlay's ceiling is because he has so few starts on the PGA Tour, but it's clear that it's definitely higher than the number he posted last year. It's tough to call a guy that we know so little about a must have, but considering his number is just $2 million, he really is a must have. Imagine what Cantlay can do with a full schedule next season, or even an abbreviated schedule.
Cantlay has 11 events to earn over $600k on a medical extension this season and although it seems unlikely that he'll get there, he still has 11 starts and he should have no problem at minimum doubling his earnings this season. If by chance he does earn enough to get his card back, then that's just icing on the cake.
Cantaly has made 133 starts on the PGA Tour and will be back for another go-round in 2013-14. He split time between tours last year, but saved best play for the tour.
