2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
McCarthy was a rookie in 2018 and while he wasn't able to retain his card for this past season, he played well enough to earn partial privileges. He parlayed his partial status into 27 starts last season, which resulted in enough points to earn full status for this upcoming season. McCarthy seems to be getting incrementally better, but the progress is slow. He has only three top-10s in 49 starts on the PGA Tour. It's a little too early to take a chance on McCarthy as a salary cap option this season. Read Past Outlooks
Short game leads to top-5 finish
March 21, 2021
McCarthy recorded a three-under 67 on Sunday at The Honda Classic to finish in a share of third place.
After only making two birdies en route to a four-over 74 on Saturday, McCarthy bounced back with four birdies and just one bogey for his third under-par round of the tournament. He did it with stellar short game play - ranking in the top-10 in both strokes-gained around the green and putting. The T-3 finish is the best finish in McCarthy's PGA Tour career and his third top-5 result.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
McCarthy's rookie season was characterized by a single top-10 and just 13-of-22 made cuts. Denny's driving is PGA Tour average and his putting is great, but his iron game is incredibly underdeveloped. After earning full PGA Tour status by winning the Tour Championship and overall Tour Finals, he'll need to maintain his momentum to outpace last year's weak rookie campaign. As a fringe talent, don't expect anything special from McCarthy in the 2018-19 season, but there's a chance he'll ride his current momentum to some solid finishes in the fall season.
Earning a PGA Tour card via the Tour Finals, McCarthy is set to become a rookie at the next level after making 18 of 23 cuts on the during 2017. He failed to record any top-three finishes through two seasons on the Tour, however, so McCarthy's upside may remain limited. McCarthy ranked second in putting average and 21st in birdie average this past season, but was just 128th in terms of GIR percentage.
