The Outlook

Cantlay’s Long-Term Adjusted Round Score is tied for the seventh-best mark in the field — ahead of guys like Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, and Tommy Fleetwood. And yet, like Tony Finau, he’s still consistently undervalued in both the betting and DFS markets. He owns the second-best Recent Adjusted Round Score, too, which is pretty ridiculous. He’s going to win a bunch in his career, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see it happen this week.


The Metrics

Here’s how Cantlay ranks in the PGA Championship field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
