2021-22 Season Highlights


Earned his first PGA TOUR card despite going without a victory, as he recorded nine top-10s (the second-highest total on Tour) in just 17 starts en route to a No. 7 finish on the season-long Korn Ferry Tour Eligibility Points List. Recorded three podium finishes, including two runners-up. Posted all nine of his top-10s across his final 12 starts of the season, a stretch which spanned late March through late August. Closed the season with seven top-10s in his final eight starts (including each of his final four starts). Finished second on Tour in the all-around ranking, third in putts per green in regulation (1.704), and led the Tour in both scoring average (68.36) and birdie average.
