30-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Putnam's rookie season and his second season on the PGA Tour could not have been more different. Putnam's rookie season was a disaster. He missed more cuts than he made and earned only two top-25 all season. In total, he had less than $300k to show by the end of the season. His second season started like his first ended, with missed cuts and zero top-25s through his first five starts. He posted his first career top-25 at the Career Builder Challenge in January, but he didn't really get rolling until March. A top-5 at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship was the springboard for a nice run that would see him produce at a high- evel through the end of the season. The pinnacle was a win at the Barracuda Championship in August, but he also posted a runner-up at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Good things appear to be in-store for Putnam, but there's not enough of a track record to spend this type of money on him in a salary cap format. In draft leagues he'll have plenty of value though and he'll likely fall further than he should because he's not well known right now. Read Past Outlooks

July 22, 2019
Putnam dropped into a tie for 32nd place after a disastrous seven-over-par 78 on Sunday at the Open Championship.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Putnam earns back his PGA Tour card after originally losing it due to a poor 2015 campaign in which he missed 13 of 23 cuts, falling to 182nd in the FedExCup standings. The 28-year-old's 2017 campaign included a win at the Panama Claro Championship in February, and he finished the season having missed just three cuts in 20 events. Putnam statistically doesn't stand out among his peers, but was able to finish eighth on the regular season money list thanks to his ranking of 11th in terms of scoring average.
Putnam, the brother of current PGA Tour player Michael Putnam (who finished the 2013-2014 season 93rd in FedEx Cup points), used a victory at the WNB Golf Classic and a second at the season-opening Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship Presented by Claro to finish the regular season second in money to clinch his PGA Tour card. He concluded the year with three other top-10s and 13 top-25 finishes in 22 starts. Ninth in putting average and ninth in scoring average on the Tour this past season, having his brother as a resource could help shorten the learning curve and get Putnam contending on the PGA Tour early on in the fall.
