Personal


  • Biggest thrill outside golf was the births of his two sons.
  • Helped his high school basketball team reach the state tournament for the first time in school history.
  • Superstitions include tying his shoes in a certain way.
  • Dream foursome includes Mark Merritt and his two sons, Scout and Dodge.
  • Two brothers also competed in college athletics. Older brother, Ben, played Division III football at Wartburg College in Iowa. Younger brother, Tim, was a Division III basketball player at Luther College in Iowa. Father is a member of the Wartburg Hall of Fame after playing both baseball and basketball for the school.
  • On the Friday before the 2018 PGA Championship, was diagnosed with 12-inch blood clot that ran from the area above his elbow into his chest. Underwent a thrombectomy the same day. Two days later, flew to St. Louis to play in the PGA Championship (MC).
  • In January 2019, was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, where blood vessels or nerves in the area between the collarbone and the first rib are compressed, leading to surgery that month to have the top rib on his left side removed. After a two-month absence, returned to the PGA TOUR at THE PLAYERS Championship (MC).
