29-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Blair went back to the drawing board after finishing outside of the top-100 in the FedEx Cup standings in four consecutive seasons from 2015-2018. Back-to-back top-10s at the Korn Ferry Tour's Pinnacle Bank Championship and Price Cutter Charity Championship in late July would foreshadow a win at the Ellie Mae Classic where Blair posted a 65.75 scoring average and locked up his PGA Tour card for the 2019-20 campaign in the process. He ultimately finished 12th on the KFT's Regular Season Points List and nearly led the entire Tour in driving accuracy. Blair is short off the tee, but he ranked 15th in both GIR percentage and putting average among his peers. Read Past Outlooks
Fall outside top-25 with final round 77
July 3, 2018
Blair had a final round to forget at the Quicken Loans National with a seven-over 77 to fall all the way to a tie for 27th place.
Blair put himself in great position after three rounds at just two behind the leaders in third place. He could have used just a solid round to put himself in a much better place in terms of the FedExCup. It just wasn't his day in the final round as Blair failed to make a single birdies to go along with four bogeys and a triple. His driving was not particularly good this week, especially on Sunday when he only hit four fairways. A player of Blair's length combined with the penal rough at TPC Potomac and that is a recipe for disaster. He did have a solid putting week, however, ranking 12th in both strokes gained and putts per GIR. Blair has now made the cut in his last three events after missing the weekend in six of his previous seven starts. Blair will tee it up next week at the Greenbrier Classic.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
After regressing in the two seasons following his promising rookie campaign Blair finds himself at a crossroads for 2017-18 season as the first man outside the top-125 FedEx Cup points bubble. As such, Blair will definitely need to maximize his limited opportunities this upcoming season with conditional status. Blair's game is characterized by strong driving accuracy and a good short game, so look for him to capitalize on courses that place a premium on these aspects, especially when the field strength is diluted. From what he's shown in his early career his upside seems to be capped, but he's good enough to post at least a couple top-10s to slip inside the top 125.
It's not uncommon for a golfer to regress after a solid rookie season as Zac Blair did last year. What is uncommon is to regress within that sophomore season. Blair started last season fairly well with a top-10 at the Mayakoba and a solo-3rd at the Sony Open, but after that, there was little to write home about. In fact, Blair failed to crack the top-50 in his final nine events. Blair certainly could improve this season, an optimist would point-out that he's successfully secured his card in his first two seasons, but there doesn't appear to be a whole lot of upside at this point. In draft leagues, he should go after the 10th-round.
What Zac Blair did in the past month is utterly sensational. Graduating from BYU earlier this year with a degree in Recreation Management, Blair qualified for the U.S. Open, tying for 40th. He didn’t play his first Tour event until July, but made enough money in basically a two month timeframe to qualify for the Tour Finals (a T2 at the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper certainly helped). But then his game hit a cold snap and he missed the cut in the first three Finals events, shooting no rounds in the 60s, before turning it ON at the Tour Championship, opening with 63-65 and ending up finishing solo second. That all adds up to an eighth place starting spot on the Reshuffle List and a ton of positive vibes heading into the Open in two weeks.
