Korn Ferry Tour
Simmons Bank Open for the Snedeker Foundation - Recorded his first top-10 of the season as he totaled a 12-under 276 with rounds of 66-69-70-71 for a T8 at the Simmons Bank Open for the Snedeker Foundation. Worked his way into contention in the final round, but faded after a double bogey at the par-4 16th and bogey at the par-4 17th. BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by TD SYNNEX - Carried a five-stroke lead into the final round and played bogey-free golf through his first 59 holes, but only managed an even-par 71 in the final round and fell into a sudden-death playoff with Ben Griffin. Parred the second playoff hole for his third career Korn Ferry Tour victory. Finished with rounds of 66-65-61-71 and totaled 22-under 263 at the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by TD SYNNEX. Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper - Stood solo-second and two strokes off the lead through 54 holes, but never made up ground Sunday with a final-round 2-under 70, settling for T2 at 22-under 266 at the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper. Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna - Became the first multi-time winner of the 2022 Korn Ferry Tour season, closing the week with a 5-under 66 and final-round 6-under 65 to finish one stroke ahead of runner-up Ben Taylor at the Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna. The victory was his fourth career Korn Ferry Tour win, in addition to it marking his second multi-win season on the Korn Ferry Tour, as he won twice in 2019.
