2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Straka is now 3-for-3 in making the playoffs. His problem the last few months of last season, however, was consistency as he missed 7-of-10 cuts, but recorded top-15s in all the events he made the weekend. Straka's short game is the only category he has lost strokes in during his first three seasons on tour. There is definitely some upside here if he can put it all together. Read Past Outlooks
Surges with Sunday 64
August 16, 2021
Straka closed with a six-under 64 on Sunday at the Wyndham Championship to finish tied for 15th place.
Straka had a hot start with four birdies to start his final round and nearly had a clean card except for a double-bogey on the par-4 13th. His ball-striking was in solid form this week, as he gained over six shots with his driving and approach play combined. Straka's last six starts have resulted in three top-15s and three missed cuts.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Straka's second season on Tour went pretty similarly to his first one, with a handful of top-25 results and a missed cut at the Northern Trust to end it. It's a little troubling to see that Straka missed more cuts in the same amount of starts this year and that his tee-to-green play dipped. It's not out of the question to see him be a surprise winner in this season, and he's a safe bet to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
With all the outstanding play by rookie golfers on the PGA Tour this past season, Straka flew a bit under the radar, but he accomplished goal number one for every new member of the PGA Tour and that's to secure your card for the following season. Straka didn't offer much excitement this past season, he was more of a grinder, with five top-25s and only one top-10. It's too early to make a call on Strake, but it's probably wise to wait another year or two on him before trying to fit him under your salary cap.
The 25-year-old Austrian ranked top-25 in both GIR percentage and total driving on the Tour in 2017-18, leading to a win at the KC Golf Classic and a third-place finish at the Tour Championship to earn a PGA Tour card for the first time in his career. Concerns lie in the fact that Straka posted only three top-25s in 26 events last season, but solid ball striking is an intriguing quality for the rookie.
