The Outlook

Cantlay is going to be on a lot of betting cards and make his way into a good chunk of fantasy rosters this week. He’s coming off the best week of his career with the irons, gaining 10.2 strokes with his approach at Memorial his last time out. He usually does more of his damage off the tee, so if he’s dialed in to that level with the approach game this week, he can win this.
