2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Cook had a disappointing sophomore season after his rookie campaign where he won and posted seven other top-25s against just five missed cuts in 29 starts. Thankfully that win in the 2017-18 season keeps him in good position to have enough starts to have a solid shot to get back to the playoffs. Cook is a good driver of the ball, but needs to improve the short game. Last year he was 192nd on tour in SG: Around-the-green. Cook is a decent choice for salary cap leagues. Read Past Outlooks
T14 at the Greenbrier
September 16, 2019
Cook carded a two-under 68 on Sunday at a Military Tribute at the Greenbrier to finish 10-under and tied for 14th.
ANALYSIS
Aside from a double on the par-5 12th during Sunday's final round, Cook posted just one bogey throughout the entire tournament. On the flip side, he only tallied 13 birdies, which ranked T55 among the field. Nonetheless, he led the field in scrambling at an incredible clip of 88.24 percent and also hit a very respectable 76.39 percent of the greens in regulation. He'll tee it up again this week at the Sanderson Farms Championship where he notched a top-25 during his last appearance.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Cook started his rookie season on the PGA Tour off in-style with a win at The RSM Classic in the fall and although he had only one other top-5 for the rest of the season, it was certainly a successful campaign. Cook got it done on and around the greens last season as he ranked 53rd on the PGA Tour in strokes-gained around the green and 39th in strokes-gained putting. His putting was no fluke, he's always been good with the blade, but up until last season, he was a heck of a ball-striker as well. Perhaps he didn't adjust to the new venues as well and unfamiliarity with the course lead to some issues off the tee and approaching the green. Whatever the case, it's something he should remedy this season and as long as he continues to putt well, he should produce at a higher level this season.
Cook originally busted onto the professional golf scene in 2015 when he made 6 of 7 cuts on the PGA Tour while notching a pair of top-10s in the process, but was unable to earn full status until finishing 15th in the Web.com's 2017 regular season money list. His most recent campaign was highlighted by a stretch that included results of T7-T2-T7 from the LECOM Health Challenge through the Pinnacle Bank Championship in July. Cook also ranked an impressive eighth in ball striking and 14th in total driving on the Web.com Tour.
