2021-22 Season Highlights


Earned his first PGA TOUR card via the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, and was one of four members of the inaugural PGA TOUR University Class of 2021 who secured a TOUR card via the Korn Ferry Tour in 2022. Began the season with conditional status and only made two starts in the first 12 events (both missed cuts). Gained entry to the AdventHealth Championship (No. 150 player into the 156-man field), the first event following a reshuffle, and needed three consecutive top-25s to continue playing events ahead of the next reshuffle; he finished T23-T23-T25-T25 and, roughly a month later, finished solo-second at the Memorial Health Championship presented by LRS to vault himself into the top 75 on the points list for a spot in Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Finished No. 34 on the Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season Eligibility Points List, and finished No. 3 on the Korn Ferry Tour Finals Eligibility Points List with a solo-second finish at the season-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance. Ranked sixth on Tour in ball striking, seventh in greens in regulation percentage (74.28 percent), and ninth in scoring average (69.02).

Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper - Tallied his fourth consecutive top-25 and second consecutive top-10, finishing 18-under 270 for T8 at the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper.
