Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Denny McCarthy
Distance will be the name of the game at the PGA Championship, so it should shock no one that the longest hitter of all-time, Bryson DeChambeau, leads Len Hochberg's list of contenders for the Wanamaker Trophy.
Rory McIlroy wasn't quite himself over the past few months, but he washed that all away over the weekend with his third career win at the Wells Fargo Championship.
Many tried to match Matt Jones' performance at The Honda Classic, but when it was all said and done he found himself in a class all to himself.
Dustin Johnson was the most expensive player in the annual RotoWire staff golf league over Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy, but fewer top golfers stood out in a format that gives a guide for season-long leagues.
A string of top-25 results earns Corey Conners a spot among Bryce Danielson's golfers to consider in this week's contests on Yahoo.
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 Web.com Tour Championship and overall Web.com 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 Web.com Tour Finals, McCarthy is set to become a rookie at the next level after making 18 of 23 cuts on the Web.com during 2017. He failed to record any top-three finishes through two seasons on the Web.com 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.
