2021-22 Season Highlights


Korn Ferry Tour
Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship - Entered the week without a top-10 in his last 117 PGA TOUR-sanctioned starts, with his last top-10 coming in July 2017 at the Quicken Loans National, and posted a wire-to-wire victory at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. Broke the Ohio State University Golf Club Scarlet Course’s 18-hole tournament scoring record with a 9-under 62 in the first round. Lost the outright lead twice in the final round, including after a bogey on the par-3 17th, which sent him to the 72nd hole tied with Paul Haley II. Made a 13-footer for birdie on the par-4 18th to emerge victorious and secure a place within The Finals 25.

  • Superstitions included never using a No. 2 ball in competition.
  • The Arkansas Razorbacks are his favorite college team and the Washington Capitals are his favorite pro team.
  • Would round out his dream foursome with his dad, his uncle and his grandfather. His uncle, Goran Lingmerth, was a kicker for the Cleveland Browns in 1987.
  • Not many people know he can play the drums.
