Adam Schenk

29-Year-Old Golfer
2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Schenk looked like a longshot to make the FedEx Cup Playoffs, but he found some form late in the 2020-21 season and took advantage of some weaker field events to retain his card for another year. He doesn't do anything particularly great, but he gets the most out of his game and has made the cut in 64 percent of his starts the last three seasons. The lack of upside makes Schenk a suboptimal season-long fantasy option. Read Past Outlooks
Unable to convert 54-hole lead
October 10, 2021
Schenk shot a one-under 70 on Sunday at the Shriners Children's Open to finish in a share of third place.
Schenk entered the final round with a one-stroke lead as he was eyeing his first PGA Tour victory, but he played an anxious front-nine with just one birdie and three bogeys to fall out of the lead. He was able to bounce back on the back with three birdies and no dropped shots, leading to a T-3 finish - his career-best on Tour. Schenk was fueled by a hot putter, gaining 8.6 shots in strokes-gained putting to the lead the field for the tournament.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Schenk qualified for the FedEx Cup Playoffs for a second consecutive season, but once again was unable to make enough headway to make the top 70 into the BMW Championship. He was a workhorse, playing 24 events in the shortened season, but was unable to crack the top 10 in a single event despite 15 made cuts. His game does appear to be trending in the right direction, with six straight made cuts. His driving accuracy improved to help him make gains in SG: Off-the-tee, where he went from 91st last season to 47th.
Schenk was a rookie in 2017, but he failed to crack the top-125 or even the top-150. He managed to get some starts early in the fall portion of the season last year though and took full advantage. A couple top-20s led to more starts, which led to more success. By the end of the season, Schenk had three top-10s in all and nearly $1.2 million in earnings. Schenk had plenty of success against softer fields, but he also played well in spots against stronger fields. Schenk might have another gear, but obviously we haven't seen it yet. He's worth a look in salary cap leagues, but there are probably better options at this price.
Schenk collected just one top-10 in his 2017-18 rookie campaign, and sadly it was in the Zurich 2-man event where he needed the help of teammate Tyler Duncan to pull off the feat. The positive here is that Schenk is a long hitter and was an above average putter on the PGA Tour this season, but don't expect him to make a huge leap this season. Expect around $500,000 in earnings and a return to the Tour Finals where he'll need to fight for his card yet again.
Through two generally successful seasons on the Tour, Schenk racked up just over $400K in 48 total events, but ultimately earned his PGA Tour card for the first time thanks to his win at the Lincoln Land Charity Championship in late June. That victory came during one of the best stretches so far throughout his professional career, finishing top-five in four straight events. Schenk's long game appears to be of PGA Tour caliber after ranking top-20 in both total driving and ball striking on the, while he also finished top-40 in terms of scrambling.
