2021-22 Season Highlights


Secured a return to the PGA TOUR via the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Points leader among the 25 players who earned TOUR cards via The Finals 25 off the strength of his win at the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron, but finished behind Justin Suh (earned TOUR card via regular season) on the Korn Ferry Tour Finals Eligibility Points List. Closed the regular season with back-to-back T5s, vaulting him to No. 33 on the Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season Eligibility Points List and into the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.

Korn Ferry Tour
LECOM Suncoast Classic - Tallied his first career top-10 on the Korn Ferry Tour with rounds of 65-68-70-66 to total a 15-under 269 for T6 at the LECOM Suncoast Classic. REX Hospital Open - Finished solo-fourth, a career-high finish on the Korn Ferry Tour, at 15-under 269 with rounds of 68-68-67-66 at the REX Hospital Open. Live and Work in Maine Open - One of two players in the field who recorded four rounds in the 60s en route to 14-under 270 and a T3, his second top-four finish in a stretch of three starts, at the Live and Work in Maine Open. Utah Championship presented by Zions Bank - Recorded a trio of 5-under 66s, including one in the final round, and totaled 19-under 265 for T5 at the Utah Championship presented by Zions Bank. Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna - Fell just short of the finish required to move into The 25 and secure a PGA TOUR card, as he settled for his second consecutive T5 at 14-under 270 at the Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna. Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron - Coming off back-to-back T5 finishes, closed with an 8-under 63 and earned a spot in a three-man playoff with MJ Daffue and Philip Knowles, which saw Gordon two-putt for par and earn his first career victory at the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron. Entered the final round seven strokes off the 54-hole lead and posted the largest final-round comeback victory since Seth Reeves erased an eight-stroke final-round deficit at the 2020 Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna. Gordon’s victory ensured him a spot in The Finals 25 and a return to the PGA TOUR.
