Denny McCarthy
25-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Top-15 result at Shriners Open
November 5, 2018
McCarthy only managed a two-under 69 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, but was able to hold onto a tie for 15th place.
ANALYSIS
McCarthy put himself in good position for a top-10 or better after rounds of 65-66 on Friday and Saturday, but he couldn't get it going quite the same in the final round. The 25-year-old was top-12 this week in SG: Off-the-tee, driving accuracy, and putts per GIR, but was outside the top-50 in SG: Around and scrambling percentage. After missing the cut at the Safeway Open, McCarthy has now followed with finishes of T7-T15. He will tee it up again at the Mayakoba Golf Classic next week.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
