Austin Cook
27-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Cook started his rookie season on the PGA Tour off in-style with a win at The RSM Classic in the fall and although he had only one other top-5 for the rest of the season, it was certainly a successful campaign. Cook got it done on and around the greens last season as he ranked 53rd on the PGA Tour in strokes-gained around the green and 39th in strokes-gained putting. His putting was no fluke, he's always been good with the blade, but up until last season, he was a heck of a ball-striker as well. Perhaps he didn't adjust to the new venues as well and unfamiliarity with the course lead to some issues off the tee and approaching the green. Whatever the case, it's something he should remedy this season and as long as he continues to putt well, he should produce at a higher level this season. Read Past Outlooks
Defending champ finishes T11 at RSM
November 19, 2018
Cook fired a bogey-free six-under 66 at the RSM Classic to climb into a tie for 11th place.
ANALYSIS
Last year's champion followed up with a solid effort in his first title defense. What really hurt him was a three-over-par round on Friday, as he was a combined 17-under in the other three rounds. Cook ranked 76th in SG: Putting for the week, but led in SG: Approach, and was second-best in both SG: Tee-to-green and GIR's. Cook will end 2019 with four starts in the fall portion of the schedule, collecting a pair of top-15's.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Cook originally busted onto the professional golf scene in 2015 when he made 6 of 7 cuts on the PGA Tour while notching a pair of top-10s in the process, but was unable to earn full status until finishing 15th in the Web.com's 2017 regular season money list. His most recent campaign was highlighted by a stretch that included results of T7-T2-T7 from the LECOM Health Challenge through the Pinnacle Bank Championship in July. Cook also ranked an impressive eighth in ball striking and 14th in total driving on the Web.com Tour.
