27-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks
Runner-up at BMW Championship
August 18, 2019
Cantlay fired a seven-under 65 in the final round of the BMW Championship, but ultimately finished runner-up to Justin Thomas.
Cantlay was in the final group on Sunday trying to make up a six shot deficit to Justin Thomas. He got off to a slow start with a bogey at the first, but surged to within two shots after four straight birdies from holes 7-10. Cantlay added four more birdies coming in against just one bogey, but at that point Thomas got hot and had things under control. Cantlay's solo second means he will start the TOUR Championship in the No. 2 spot at eight-under and two back of Thomas. His ball striking was far superior at Medinah than it was last week at the Northern Trust, which bodes well for his chances at East Lake. You'd be hard pressed to find a more complete player on tour right now than Cantlay.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
