Past Fantasy Outlooks
McCarthy went from missing just five cuts in 2019-20, to missing 13 cuts in 2020-21. He also saw both his top-10s and top-25s go down. McCarthy had another good season with the putter, but his ball-striking numbers need to be better if he is going to amount to anything in salary cap formats.
Amazingly, McCarthy led the Tour in SG: Putting for a second consecutive season but his tee-to-green game leaves much to be desired. He's best viewed as a cut maker who struggles in stronger-field events, but will occasionally contend when he's able to have a good week with his long-game. A safe bet to make the FedEx Cup Playoffs and a contender to win a weaker field event.
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.
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.
