2021-22 Season Highlights


Secured a return to the PGA TOUR, graduating via the Korn Ferry Tour regular season for the second time in his career (previously 2017). Collected his third career victory at The Ascendant presented by Blue and finished No. 4 on the season-long Korn Ferry Tour Eligibility Points List off the strength of his win, a runner-up finish at The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic at The Abaco Club, and solo-third at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship as part of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Ranked seventh on Tour in birdie average.

Korn Ferry Tour
The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic at The Abaco Club - Held the solo 54-hole lead and appeared poised to win, but bogeyed two of the final three holes of regulation and hit consecutive balls into the penalty area on the second playoff hole, ultimately finishing solo second to Brandon Harkins. He converted his previous two outright 54-hole leads into victories on the Korn Ferry Tour. Totaled an 18-under 270 with rounds of 69-66-66-69 at The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic at The Abaco Club. The Panama Championship - Placed T5 for a second consecutive top-five, as he posted rounds of 69-67-71-68 for a 5-under 275 at The Panama Championship. Simmons Bank Open for the Snedeker Foundation - Rounds of 69-66-68 put him one stroke off the 54-hole lead, but an even-par 72 in the final round left him at 13-under 275 for a T5, his third top-five finish of the season, at the Simmons Bank Open for the Snedeker Foundation. The Ascendant presented by Blue - Only player in the field who recorded four rounds in the 60s as he totaled 17-under 271 with rounds of 69-67-68-67 for a one-stroke victory at The Ascendant presented by Blue. The win was the third of his career and first since 2019. Made five birdies in an eight-hole stretch (Nos. 9, 10, 13, 15, 16) and held on for the win despite an errant drive into a fairway bunker which led to a bogey on the 72nd hole. Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship - Opened with three consecutive 4-under 67s and with a 1-under 70, totaling 13-under 271 for solo-third, his third podium finish of the season, at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship.
