29-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Much was expected of Cantlay entering this past season and by all accounts, he delivered. No, he didn't win a major or a WGC event, of The PLAYERS, or a FedEx event, but in every other aspect, he was great. In that sense, it was almost a break out year, but not quite. $6 million in earnings would certainly qualify as a breakout season for just about anyone, but a lot is expected of Cantlay and until he picks up a win at a larger event, he won't truly have met his potential. That win comes this season however, but it won't be enough to justify a salary cap selection this season as his number is just too high. Read Past Outlooks
Wins Memorial in playoff
June 6, 2021
Cantlay defeated Collin Morikawa on the first playoff hole to win the Memorial Tournament on Sunday.
Both Cantlay and Morikawa lucked into a great chance to win this premier event after Jon Rahm had to withdraw after three rounds following a positive COVID-19 test. Rahm had both players beat by six shots entering the final round before the unfortunate news. Cantlay was just one-over through 12 holes, but a birdie at 13 followed by a key birdie on 17 helped him get into a playoff. Both Cantlay and Morikawa missed the green on the first playoff hole, but the UCLA product was able to get up and down despite having a longer par putt. This was his second win at the Memorial Tournament after taking home the title back in 2019. Cantlay will take the lead of the FedExCup with his second win of the season. He has all kinds of momentum heading to Torrey Pines for the U.S. Open in two weeks.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Cantlay entered the PGA Tour with a lot of hype and through two seasons, he hasn't disappointed. Cantlay earned over $2 million in just 13 starts two seasons ago and he topped that last season with nearly $4 million in earnings. Cantlay picked-up his first PGA Tour victory in the fall of last season, but unlike many before him whose game dropped-off after a win, Cantlay kept his foot on the accelerator. Cantlay scored six more top-10s the rest of the way and he missed only two cuts all season. If there is a weak spot to this point, it's his performance at the majors. Cantlay earned only one top-25 at the majors last season. He should improve in that area this season, which should lead to an increase in earnings, possibly enough to make him a decent salary cap option.
Cantlay accomplished what few people could last season as he made it to the Tour Championship with only 13 starts under his belt. It's tough to say where Cantlay's ceiling is because he has so few starts on the PGA Tour, but it's clear that it's definitely higher than the number he posted last year. It's tough to call a guy that we know so little about a must have, but considering his number is just $2 million, he really is a must have. Imagine what Cantlay can do with a full schedule next season, or even an abbreviated schedule.
Cantlay has 11 events to earn over $600k on a medical extension this season and although it seems unlikely that he'll get there, he still has 11 starts and he should have no problem at minimum doubling his earnings this season. If by chance he does earn enough to get his card back, then that's just icing on the cake.
Cantaly has made 133 starts on the PGA Tour and will be back for another go-round in 2013-14. He split time between tours last year, but saved best play for the tour.
