2020-21 Season Highlights


PGA TOUR
Sanderson Farms Championship - Shot a final-round 63 to finish second at the Sanderson Farms Championship. Teed off 1 hour, 40 minutes before the final pairing on Sunday and held at least a share of the lead from the time he finished until Sergio Garcia birdied the 18th hole in the final pairing. 63 tied the lowest score of the week and was his first career sub-64 score on TOUR. Marked the second top-two finish of his PGA TOUR career, with the first coming when he won the Sanderson Farms Championship in 2015. Co-led the field in Par-4 Scoring Average (3.75). Shriners Hospitals for Children Open - Held a share of the 36-hole lead at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open en route to a T5, recording back-to-back top-fives for the first time in his career. Second-round 62 came two rounds after recording his first career score of 63 or better (63/R4/Sanderson Farms Championship). Fell to 0-for-3 in his career with the 36-hole lead/co-lead. Sony Open in Hawaii - Held a share of the lead after the first round of the Sony Open in Hawaii before finishing T14. Marked his second 18-hole lead/co-lead of his career and second of the season (Bermuda Championship/T21).
