36-Year-Old Golfer
2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Todd came back to Earth a bit last season after an incredible two-win campaign the season before. Todd had just three top-10s and ended the season by missing four of his last five cuts. His putter was still very strong, but he loses so many strokes off the tee and approaching the greens due to his lack of length. There just isn't a whole lot of upside unless Todd gets red hot with the putter on shorter courses. Read Past Outlooks
Tallies eight final-round birdies
September 21, 2021
Todd fired a five-under 67 on Sunday at the Fortinet Championship to finish 10-under and tied for 22nd.
Todd racked up eight final-round birdies to break 70 for the first time all week, and it was good enough to launch him inside the top-25. He finished the event with 22 total birdies while gaining five strokes with the flat stick. After missing the cut in three straight starts from the Rocket Mortgage Classic through the 3M Open, he's placed top-25 in two of three starts dating to the Wyndham Championship.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Exceeding all expectations throughout a bounce-back beyond belief during the 2019-20 season, Todd notched back-to-back wins in November at the Bermuda Championship and Mayakoba Golf Classic after missing four consecutive cuts from the Greenbrier through the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to begin the fall series. A rapid rise to the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings at the time didn't bother Todd, as he immediately collected another top-5 at the RSM Classic following his victories. He would contend here and there throughout the remainder of the season but a couple Sunday meltdowns caused him to fall to 156th in Round 4 scoring average. Nonetheless, it's been quite a resurgence for the 35-year-old who contemplated leaving the game altogether after missing 39 of 44 cuts across a three-year span from 2016-18. Todd is top 6 on Tour in driving accuracy, scrambling and one-putt percentage.
Todd amassed a substantial $5,205,939 in earnings over a two-season stretch in 2014 and 2015, but it's since been quite a struggle for the 34-year-old. He's missed the cut in a whopping 41 of his last 55 starts dating back to the 2016 season, though he did notch a quartet of top-25s in 2019 before also tying for second at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals to retain status on the PGA Tour. Todd fell outside of the top-1000 in the Official World Golf Ranking after missing the cut at the U.S. Open in June, but he's back up to No. 506 heading into the 2019-20 opener.
Todd was fairly consistent the entire season last year, but it was one incredible stretch that set him apart from most of his peers. The stretch began with a win at the Byron Nelson Classic and ended two months later with a T4 at the Greenbrier Classic. In all, five top-10s in six events, three of which were top-5s. Todd looks like he has the good to build on this momentum, but he's just too pricey to take in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues he should go somewhere in the 3rd round.
Todd played only eight times on Tour in 2013, but packed a punch during those events. He had seven top-25s in eight starts and a win.
