2022-23 Season Highlights


Finished No. 5 on the Korn Ferry Tour Points List, earning a return to the PGA TOUR for the first time since playing consecutive seasons on TOUR in 2017-18 and 2018-19. Entered the season with conditional status in the "Past Champion 5-10 Years" category after he failed to advance out of Second Stage of the 2022 Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament, but was awarded a sponsor exemption for The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic (second event of season) and won the event, earning fully exempt status for the remainder of the season. Added runner-up finishes at the weather-shortened HomeTown Lenders Championship (lost in a playoff to Ben Kohles) in April, and Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper in July. Totaled six top-10s -- including four top-three finishes, which were tied with Rico Hoey for the most on Tour in 2023 -- and 15 made cuts in 17 starts.

Korn Ferry Tour
The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic at The Abaco Club - Earned his second career Korn Ferry Tour win and first since 2017 at The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic at The Abaco Club, defeating Cody Blick with a par on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff (par-5 18th). Carried a two-stroke lead into the final round and led by as many as six strokes in the final round, but went without a birdie in the final 10 holes of regulation, made bogey at the par-4 11th, and double bogeyed the par-5 18th to fall into a playoff with Blick, who played his final 11 holes of regulation at 4-under par. In the playoff, Silverman two-putted for par after Blick hit his tee shot and subsequent shot into the penalty area.
