Dustin Johnson Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Johnson broke through for his first major title with a three-stroke win over Jim Furyk, Shane Lowry and Scott Piercy at the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont (Pennsylvania) Country Club. Entered the final round trailing 54-hole leader Lowry by four strokes before a final-round, one-under 69 (which included a one-stroke penalty for his ball moving on the par-4 fifth green) led to his victory. The win came in his 193rd start at the age of 31 years, 11 months, and 28 days. With the victory, he became the first player to follow up a runner-up finish at the U.S. Open with a victory the next season since Tiger Woods (2007-08). Others included Payne Stewart (1998-99), Jack Nicklaus (1971-72), and Bobby Jones (three times). Sunday's final marked the 12th consecutive round in a U.S. Open that he had been ranked sixth or better on the leader board, dating back to the first round of the 2014 U.S. Open. Tiger Woods (1999-2000) and Payne Stewart (1998-99) are next on the list with eight consecutive rounds. All three players won during their respective stretches.

Johnson's grandfather, Art Whisnant, played basketball at South Carolina and was a three-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) selection in the early 1960s. Dustin could palm a basketball as a seventh-grader and can still dunk the ball. He was a first-team All-American at Coastal Carolina for two seasons, where he won seven times during his career. He represented the USA on the winning 2007 Walker Cup Team and turned professional shortly after the Match.

Johnson advanced through all three stages of Q-School in 2007 to qualify for the PGA Tour. Has won at least once a year in each of his first six seasons on the Tour, including 2013. He played on the 2010 and '12, '16 and '18 USA Ryder Cup teams and 2011, '15, '17 & '19 Presidents Cup teams.

2011 Notes: Johnson's fourth full season on the PGA Tour ended with a career-best 4th-place finish in the FedExCup standings. His victory at The Barclays made him the first player since Tiger Woods to go directly from college to the professional ranks and win in his first four years on the Tour. Was one of six rookies on the victorious U.S. Presidents Cup team, but he struggled to a 1-3-1 record at Royal Melbourne G.C.

In 2012, Johnson was hampered by a back injury sustained while lifting a jet-ski at his home and consequently missed two months of competition after the WGC-Cadillac, including the Masters. He came back strong, finishing T-19th at the Memorial, then won the next week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. He finished the year eighth in the FedExCup standings and 19th on the money list.

In his second consecutive Ryder Cup appearance, he went 3-0-0 at Medinah C.C. in the U.S. loss. Made five birdies in a five-hole stretch on the inward nine in his singles match against Nicolas Colsaerts to win, 3 & 2.

2013 Notes: Won the first event at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions after play was delayed three days due to strong winds and heavy rain. He was runner-up at the RBC Canadian Open, despite an opening-round 75 and a triple bogey in the final round. He finished three strokes behind winner Brandt Snedeker. One of six top-10 finishes on the season led to a 13th-place showing in the FedExCup, and his fifth consecutive top-15 finish in the season-long points race.

2014 Notes: In his first start, Johnson won the WGC-HSBC Champions after finishing at a staggering 24 under par. His brother, Austin, served as a caddie at the Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China. With the win, Johnson had captured at least one title per year going back to 2008. Also finished T-2nd at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and Northern Trust Open, then a T-4th at the WGC-Cadillac. In May, Johnson finished T-7th at the Byron Nelson. In June, he placed T-4th at the U.S. Open. Finished T-12th at the British Open, then withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open, announcing he was taking a leave of absence from golf for personal reasons. Despite the leave, he finished 30th in the FedExCup standings and 12th on the money list. He also would have earned a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team. He did not return to golf until six months later.

2015 Notes: Johnson missed the cut in his first tournament back, the Farmers Insurance Open, but finished T-4th in his next start at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The following week, at the Northern Trust Open, he lost to James Hahn on the third hole of a playoff when Hahn made birdie. Two weeks later, he entered the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship trailing J.B. Holmes by five strokes before a final-round, three-under-par 69 led to a one-stroke victory over Holmes, the largest comeback in the tournament's history. The win was the ninth of his career and his second in a WGC event (2013 HSBC Champions), making him one of eight players with at least two wins in the series. His week at the Cadillac included a hole-in-one at the par-3 fourth hole during the third round. The achievement made him the first player to have an ace and win the same week since Steve Stricker at the 2011 Memorial. He finished T-6th in his next two starts, at the Valero Texas Open and Masters. He also had a top-10 result with his T-8th finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson. He lost to Jordan Spieth at the U.S. Open, his 25th major championship appearance. Two great shots at the par-5 72nd hole led to an eagle putt attempt from just over 12 feet to win his first major, but when the ball to the left, he missed the short return putt that would have forced an 18-hole playoff with Spieth on Monday. He finished runner-up with Louis Oosthuizen. The result made him winless in four attempts when playing in the final pairing at a major championship. The others are the 2010 U.S. Open (T-8th), 2010 PGA Championship (T-5th), and the 2011 U.S. Open (T-2nd). The finish was his ninth top-10 in a major. At the British Open, he led after the first and second rounds but shot 75-75 to finish T-49th. Ended up T-7th at the PGA Championship after leading in the first round. In the four majors, Johnson had a share of the lead after the first round at the U.S. Open, British Open, and PGA Championship; the lead after the second round of the British Open; and a share of the lead after the third round of the U.S. Open. He had top-10s in three of the four FedExCup Playoffs: T-9th at The Barclays, T-7th at the BMW Championship, and T-5th at the Tour Championship. He finished 7th in the final FedExCup standings and 5th on the money list. He went 3-1-0 in his four Presidents Cup matches.

2016 Notes: Started the year with a T-5th at the WGC-HSBC Championship and did not have another top-10 until his 4th-place finish at the Northern Trust. Lost in the quarterfinals (T-5th) to Louis Oosthuizen at the WGC-Dell World Match Play. He was third at the Shell Houston Open, T-4th at the Masters, and third at The Memorial. Shot a final-round 63 to finish 5th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. The next week, he won the U.S. Open. Has now captured at least one title in each of his first nine seasons on the PGA Tour (the Tour's current best streak). By comparison, Tiger Woods won in his first 14 seasons (1996-2009). Posted a four-under 276 winning score, the lowest tally in the nine U.S. Opens hosted by Oakmont Country Club. Owns eight top-10 finishes in his last 10 major championship starts, with 12 top-10s overall in majors. Won in his next start at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, posting back-to-back victories for the first time in his career. Shot consecutive rounds of 66 on the weekend to rally from three shots behind at the start of the final round for his third career World Golf Championships victory. Finished two groups ahead of 54-hole co-leader Jason Day, who dropped four strokes in the last four holes to finish T-3rd, three strokes back. Joined Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Geoff Ogilvy, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Martin Kaymer as players with victories at the U.S. Open and a World Golf Championships event, as well as becoming the ninth player with at least one major championship victory and multiple World Golf Championships wins. Overtook Jason Day at No. 1 in the FedExCup standings, the first time he has been ranked first in the standings since winning the 2013 Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Became the first player since Jordan Spieth in 2015 to win his next start after winning the U.S. Open. Earned his 11th PGA Tour title and his 10th top-10 finish of the season. Added another top-10 with a T-9th finish at the British Open. He continued his streak of top-10s with a T-2nd at the RBC Canadian Open, where he was just a stroke behind winner Jhonattan Vegas. It was his sixth consecutive top-10 and 12th for the year. The streak ended the next week at the PGA Championship, where he missed the cut at Baltusrol. In the FedExCup playoffs, he started slowly with a T-18th at The Barclays and T-8th at the Deutsche Bank before winning the BMW Championship. He finished T-6th at the Tour Championship but had to wait for the results of the playoff between Rory McIlroy, Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell to see who won the FedExCup race. McIlroy won the playoff and Johnson finished second. In his third Ryder Cup appearance, he went 2-2 in the 17-11 U.S. victory. Ended the week at Hazeltine on a high note with a 1-up singles victory over Chris Wood. Ended the year with a T-3rd finish at the Hero World Challenge.

2017 Notes: After finishing T-6th at the SBS Tournament of Champions and T-2nd at the Abu Dhabi Championship, one stroke behind winner Tommy Fleetwood, Johnson missed the cut at the Farmers. Then he went on a streak, finishing 3rd at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, followed by wins at the Genesis Open, WGC-Mexico Championship and WGC-Dell Match Play Championship. With the win at the Genesis, he took over the top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking, becoming the 20th player to achieve that standing. The Genesis win also meant he stays on the list that includes (but not limited to) Arnold Palmer (17: 1955-1971), Jack Nicklaus (17: 1962-1978) and Tiger Woods (14: 1996-2009) as players to win at least once on the PGA Tour in each of their first 10 seasons. With the win at the WGC-Dell Match Play, one in which he played 112 holes during the week and never trailed in a single match, he also became the first player to win all four World Golf Championships. Took his hot streak to the Masters, but unfortunately had an accident in which he fell down stairs in his Augusta rental home and injured his back. Was unable to loosen up the next day and had to withdraw. A month later, he came back and finished T-2nd at the Wells Fargo, one stroke behind winner Brian Harman. Struggled in missing the cut at The Memorial and the U.S. Open. In a way, it's understandable since his fiancee Paulina Gretzky gave birth the Monday of the U.S. Open to the couple's second child, a boy. Finished T-54th at the British Open and T-8th at the RBC Canadian Open. He went into the FedExCup Playoffs fourth in the standings and won the first event, the Northern Trust, for his fourth win of the season. Was not in contention at any of the last three playoff events and finished the year fourth in the final FedExCup standings. Making his third Presidents Cup appearance, Johnson turned in a dominating 4-0-1 record in leading the U.S. to a 19-11 victory.

2018 Notes: Made his season debut at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions and led going into the final round by six strokes, but struggled to a 77. Finished T-2nd, two strokes behind Justin Rose. At the Sentry Tournament of Champions, shot a final-round 65 to win by eight strokes, his second win at Kapalua. Placed T-9th at Abu Dhabi and T-2nd at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He owned a share of the third-round lead with Ted Potter, Jr., who won the event when Johnson shot 72 to finish three strokes back. Finished T-7th at the WGC-Mexico Championship. In defending his WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play title, he lost all three of his matches, finishing T-59th. Was T-10th at the Masters and T-8th at The Memorial. Won for the second time in 2018 with a six-stroke win over Andrew Putnam at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Johnson made the win even sweeter when he holed his second shot for eagle at the 72nd hole. Finished 3rd at the U.S. Open, shooting a final-round 70 to end up two strokes shy of Brooks Koepka. Held a share of the lead in each of the first three rounds and fell to 0-for-3 in majors when leading/co-leading through 54 holes (2018 U.S. Open/3rd, 2015 U.S. Open/T-2nd, 2010 U.S. Open/T-8th). Became the 10th player to hold the lead in the first three rounds at the U.S. Open but not win (first since Phil Mickelson in 2013). At four-under 136, held a four-stroke lead at the midway point. Marked his fourth top-5 in his last five U.S. Open starts (3rd/2018, Won/2016, T-2nd/2015, T-4th/2014). After missing the cut at the British Open, won the next week at the RBC Canadian Open by three strokes over Whee Kim and Byeong Hun An. Became the first player since Tiger Woods (2005-09) with at least three wins in three consecutive seasons. Entered the final round in a four-way tie for the lead before recording a six-under 66. With a closing round of 64, finished T-3rd at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, five strokes behind winner Justin Thomas. In the FedExCup Playoffs, had two top-10s, a T-7th at the Dell Technologies Championship and a 3rd at the Tour Championship. He played 20 events, making 19 cuts with 12 top-10 finishes. Ranked 4th in the FedExCup standings. In his fourth Ryder Cup, went 1-4-0, losing to Ian Poulter 2-up in singles. Was 7th at the Hero World Challenge.

2019 Notes: Played in 19 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Was 29th in the FedExCup standings. Finished T-4th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, then on a trip to the Middle East won the Saudi International. Finished T-9th at the Genesis Open and won by five over Roy McIlroy at the WGC-Mexico Championship. Was T-5th at The Players and T-6th at the Valspar Championship. Finished T-2nd at the Masters, his fourth consecutive top-10 at the Masters. He closed with birdies on four of his last six holes but finished a stroke behind winner Tiger Woods. Was the third- round leader at the RBC Heritage, but shot a six-over-par 41 on the back nine to finish T-28th. At the PGA Championship, started the final round seven strokes behind leader Brooks Koepka, but shot 69 and finished 2nd, two strokes behind Koepka. Shot 71-74 at the U.S. Open to finish T-35th. In the FedExCup playoffs, started well at the Northern Trust, holding the 36-hole lead before shooting 74-73 over the weekend to finish T-24th.

Missed the cut at the Memorial, shooting 80-80, his highest 36-hole score ever, and after a 78, withdrew at the 3M Open, citing a back injury. Got back on track at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational with a T-12th finish, shooting four sub-par rounds of 69-68-68-67.

Jon Rahm Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Jon Rahm Rodriguez grew up in Barrika, a town of about 1,500 in the Basque country of northern Spain. Got started playing a game in Spain called "Pelota," which in the Western Hemisphere is called Jai-Alai, and helped Rahm pick up his excellent hand-eye coordination. At 13, he began working on his distinctive full swing with Spanish golf coach Eduardo Celles. As a junior, he won titles with aggressive and creative play, such as hitting a 4-iron over water at the last hole of an event with no thought of laying up. It's hardly surprising Rahm drew comparisons with Seve Ballesteros. He never saw Ballesteros play but met him once. "I was too young to appreciate who I was shaking hands with," he said of Ballesteros, who passed away in 2011. "Obviously, I grew up on Tiger (Woods) and Phil (Mickelson), respecting and admiring both players for what they've done. But my idol, it's always been Seve. I try to emulate what he inspired on the golf course."

While growing up, Rahm realized he was given a good body for golf success, and he was always eager to be the best and studied to be the best by watching videos of all the great players from Hogan to Nicklaus to Seve to Trevino so that he could be the most successful player.

Rahm has the same integrity. At age 16, he was runner-up at the European Boys Championship in Stockholm. When he got back to his room, though, he discovered he had played the final round with 15 clubs in his bag, rather than the permitted maximum of 14. Despite being the only person who knew, he didn't hesitate to inform his coach and was disqualified from the championship.

Rahm was offered a scholarship at Arizona State, due in large part to his reputation, and he accepted the offer from then-coach Tim Mickelson. At 17, he was off to America, not only a country he had never visited but a country where he struggled with his English. In the beginning, it was tough, but after working hard for several months, his grasp of the language and all aspects of his life improved.

When Rahm graduated in May 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in communications, he had an incredible college record and was No. 1 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. He won 11 times in his career as a Sun Devil, the second-most in school history, five wins behind Phil Mickelson. In 12 matches in 2016, Rahm finished inside the top-10 in all of them. His collegiate wins included the 2016 NCAA Albuquerque Regional, the 2016 Pac-12 Championship, the 2015 NCAA San Diego Regional and the ASU Thunderbird Invitational (three times). He became the first player in history to receive the Ben Hogan Award twice, in 2015 and '16, given to the top collegiate golfer. He also was honored with the 2015 McCormack Medal, awarded to the No. 1-ranked player in the WAGR. He was a four-time All-Pac-12 selection, earning first-team honors in his sophomore, junior and senior seasons. He was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year in 2013.

Rahm's success translated into amateur competition as well. He won consecutive Spanish Amateurs in 2014 and '15. In 2014, he reached match play at the British Amateur, took three of four matches, won the decisive point for the Europeans at the Palmer Cup, and pushed Spain to a European Team championship. He set the record for the lowest individual score at the World Amateur Team Championship in Japan in 2014, breaking the mark held since 1960 by Jack Nicklaus. Rahm shot 23-under-par 263, besting Nicklaus' 72-hole total of 269. At the 2015 U.S. Amateur, Rahm reached the quarterfinals before losing to runner-up Derek Bard. He reached the round of 32 at the 2014 U.S. Amateur.

Rahm's first PGA Tour event was at the 2014 OHL Classic at Mayakoba, where he missed the cut. His next start at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open resulted in a T-5th, making him the first amateur to finish in the top-5 of a PGA Tour event since Chris Wood finished T-5th at the 2008 British Open. It was the first time an amateur finished in the top-5 of an American PGA Tour event since Phil Mickelson won the 1991 Chrysler Classic of Tucson. Before that, Scott Verplank finishing T-4th at the 1986 Mony Tournament of Champions. After Phoenix in 2015, Rahm finished T-64th at the Travelers Championship and T-10th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

2016 Notes: Started the PGA Tour year with a T-10th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Finished his senior year at Arizona State by winning the Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year award and became the first two-time recipient of the Ben Hogan Award. Rahm finished T-3rd at the NCAA individual Championship, as his Arizona team didn't make it to the finals. After graduating, he played as an amateur one last time at the U.S. Open, finishing T-23rd. The next week, he turned professional, and while playing on a sponsor exemption, finished T-3rd at the Quicken Loans National, four strokes behind winner Billy Hurley III. His Quicken Loans finish secured a spot at the British Open at Royal Troon, where he placed T-59th. The next week on another sponsor exemption, he finished T-2nd at the RBC Canadian Open, one stroke behind winner Jhonattan Vegas. That result provided enough FedExCup points in his fourth start as a professional to gain membership on the PGA Tour. Rahm finished the year T-8th at the ISPS Handa World Cup with teammate Rafa Cabrera Bello on the Spanish team at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Australia.

2017 Notes: Made the cut in his first four events of the year, and at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, won with a final-day 65. He made four birdies and two eagles in the closing round, one of them coming at the final hole, where he drained a 60-foot, 8-inch putt for the win. Making his first start at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, he followed an opening-round 73 at Spyglass Hill with rounds of 67-67-68 to finish T-5th, seven shots behind champion Jordan Spieth. In his first start at a World Golf Championships event, he reached 14 under par and held the solo lead in the final round of WGC-Mexico Championship for a short time after beginning the second nine with par-eagle-par-par-birdie-birdie. Missed putts of seven and eight feet at holes 16 and 17 for bogeys resulted in a T-3rd finish, two behind winner Dustin Johnson. At the WGC-Dell Match Play, he won his first six matches, reaching the final against Dustin Johnson. In that match, Johnson jumped out to a 4-up lead with six holes left. Rahm made birdies on three of them to lower the deficit to one hole, but Johnson halved holes 17 and 18 for the 1-up victory. After finishing T-10th at the Shell Houston Open, Rahm climbed to 12th in the Official World Golf Ranking in his 40th week as a professional, the fastest since Sergio Garcia and Woods. Finished 4th at the Wells Fargo Championship and his T-2nd result at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, reached 9th place in the world ranking, making him the 100th player to reach top-10 status since the ranking first started in 1986. Finished T-10th at the French Open, which was his first true European Tour event. In his next start, he won the Irish Open by six strokes. Advanced through all four FedExCup playoffs events, where he finished no worse than 7th in any of them (T-3rd Northern Trust, T-4th Dell Technologies Championship, T-5th BMW Championship and T-7th Tour Championship). Ended the season 5th in the FedExCup standings. He played the rest of the year in Europe and won the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, finishing 3rd in the Race to Dubai. He was named Rookie of the Year on the European Tour.

2018 Notes: Played 20 PGA Tour events, making 16 cuts with five top-10 finishes. Was 23rd in the FedExCup standings. Started the year as a runner-up at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, and two weeks later, won the CareerBuilder Challenge. Shot an opening-round 62 at La Quinta Country Club, tying his career-low on the PGA Tour (R1/2016, The National). Played bogey-free in the final round en route to a five-under 67, defeating Andrew Landry with a birdie at the fourth extra hole. After finishing 4th at the Masters, four strokes behind winner Patrick Reed, Rahm went home to Spain, where he won his national championship, the Open de Espana, by two strokes over Paul Dunne, closing with rounds of 66-67. Was T-5th at the Fort Worth Invitational. After missing the cut at the U.S. Open for a second consecutive year, finished T-5th at the French Open, two strokes behind winner Alex Noren and T-4th at the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open, two shots out of the Knox/Fox playoff. Was T-4th at the PGA Championship, five strokes behind winner Brooks Koepka. Earned his first spot on the European Ryder Cup team and went 1-2-0, defeating Tiger Woods in the singles, 2 & 1. Attempted to defend his title at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, but finished T-4th, four shots behind winner Danny Willett. Ended his year with a four-stroke win over Tony Finau at the Hero World Challenge.

Justin Thomas Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Playing in just his 10th career major, Thomas shot a final-round 68 to win the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club. His eight-under 276 total was two strokes better than Francesco Molinari, Patrick Reed and Louis Oosthuizen. It was only fitting that Thomas would win the championship that means so much for club professionals since his father Mike, who was watching his son win, is a PGA Club Professional in Louisville, Ky., and Justin's grandfather, Paul, is a 60-year member of the PGA of America.

Justin attended Saint Xavier High School in Louisville, Ky. Thomas was named Kentucky's "Mr. Golf" his junior year (2009) at Saint Xavier and led his team to state championships in 2008 and '09. Was medalist in 2009. Was Kentucky Junior Player of the Year in 2008 and '10. Was a two-time American Junior Golf Association Rolex All-American and a recipient of the 2011 Byron Nelson International Junior Golf Award. Finished runner-up at the 2010 U.S. Junior Amateur and a semifinalist at the 2012 U.S. Amateur. Played for the winning U.S. team at the 2012 World Amateur Team Championship in Turkey. Won both the 2012 Haskins Award and 2012 Nicklaus Award, presented annually to the top college player. His final amateur event came in 2013 when he played on the victorious U.S. Walker Cup team at National Golf Links of America. Played on the Ryder Cup team in 2018 and the President Cup in 2017 and '19.

Thomas got an early start in his PGA Tour career. With his win at the 2009 American Junior Golf Association's FootJoy Invitational, he earned a spot to play at the Wyndham Championship later that summer. He shocked the golf world at the age of 16 years, 3 months, and 23 days when he opened the tournament with a bogey-free 65. Followed with a 72 to make the cut and became the third-youngest player behind Bob Panaski and Tadd Fujikawa to make a cut. Missed the 54-hole cut to finish T-78th.

In 2011, Thomas played for the University of Alabama and, in 2013 as a sophomore, helped lead the team to its first NCAA golf national championship and was named a second-team All-American. He said winning the NCAA team title had been his biggest thrill in golf to date. Left Alabama after his sophomore season to turn professional, having won six individual titles in two years.

At the end of 2013, he went to Korn Ferry Tour qualifying and finished T-32nd, which secured solid eligibility status for 2014.

2014 Notes: Finished an impressive rookie year on the Korn Ferry Tour, making 20 starts, which resulted in a win, a runner-up showing, a 3rd-place finish, a T-4th, two T-5ths and a T-6th. Overall, he had 13 top-25s and missed just two cuts. Officially secured his 2014-15 PGA Tour card at the conclusion of the regular season in late August when he finished 5th on the money list. Started the Korn Ferry Tour Finals with T-26th and T-25th finishes at Fort Wayne, Ind., and Charlotte, N.C. Finally broke through with a win at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship on the Tour's toughest course of the year. His winning score was a six-under-par 278. The field's average score was 1.59 over par. Trailed South Africa's Richard Sterne by three strokes with four holes to play but found himself in a playoff after Sterne bogeyed 15, 16 and 17. A wedge shot from 75 yards to three feet at the 18th hole at Ohio State University G.C.'s Scarlet Course sealed the victory. His parents and grandparents were in the Sunday gallery. Became the fourth-youngest winner in Tour history, trailing only Jason Day, Patrick Cantlay and Danny Lee.

2014 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 20; In Money - 18; Top-10 Finishes - 7; Scoring Average - 69.08 (rank 3rd); Money - $276,637 (rank 5th); Best Finish - 1st, Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. His 5th-place finish on the money list secured a PGA Tour card for 2015.

2015 Notes: Finished T-4th at the Sanderson Farms Championship for his first top-5 PGA Tour finish. Fired birdie-birdie-eagle at Nos. 7-9 in the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii en route to a career-best, nine-under-par 61. Shared the second-round lead with Matt Kuchar and Webb Simpson. Added scores of 70-70 to finish T-6th. The next week at the Humana Challenge, finished T-17th. Added a fourth top-10 with a T-10th at the Valspar and another with a T-7th at Wells Fargo. At the John Deere, shot a final-round 67 and finished T-5th, two strokes out of the playoff. Three weeks later, he finished T-4th at the Quicken Loans National, shooting rounds of 66-71-68-67, six strokes behind winner Troy Merritt, for his seventh top-10 of the year. Played the first three FedExCup playoff events and missed getting into the Tour Championship by just five points. For the year, Thomas ranked 32nd in the FedExCup standings and 37th on the money list.

2016 Notes: Started the year with a T-3rd at the Frys.Com Open, just a stroke out of the Grillo/Na playoff. He won his next start at the CIMB Classic, edging Adam Scott by one stroke. In finishing T-3rd at the Honda Classic, he was the only player to shoot four rounds in the 60s. Had another T-3rd at The Players Championship, thanks to a final-round 65. Finished T-3rd again, this time at the Travelers Championship, and ended the season with a T-10th at The Barclays and T-6th at the Tour Championship. In 28 events, he had seven top-10s, placed 12th in the FedExCup standings, and 11th on the money list.

2017 Notes: Started the year T-8th at the Safeway Open, then successfully defended his CIMB Classic title in Malaysia. He opened and closed with eight-under-par 64s to claim a three-stroke victory over Hideki Matsuyama with a 23-under 265. Three weeks later, finished T-4th at the Dunlop Phoenix on the Japan Tour, eight strokes behind winner Brooks Koepka. Became the season's first multiple winner with a three-stroke win over Hideki Matsuyama at the SBS Tournament of Champions. Opened with three consecutive 67s to carry a two-stroke lead into the final round and closed with a 69 to secure this third PGA Tour victory at 23 years, 8 months, and 10 days. The following week, opened the Sony Open in Hawaii with an 11-under 59, becoming the youngest of seven players (eight times) to record a sub-60 round on the PGA Tour (23 years, 8 months, 14 days). Added rounds of 64-65-65 for a runaway seven-stroke win over Justin Rose, netting his fourth PGA Tour victory (third of the season) in his 74th start. Became the first player to win the SBS Tournament of Champions and Sony Open in Hawaii in the same season since Ernie Els in 2003 and the 10th to win both Hawaii events at least once during a career. Added another top-10 at the WGC-Mexico Championship with a T-5th finish. Was the 54-hole leader but faltered on Sunday with a 72 to finish three strokes behind winner Dustin Johnson. His next good result was a T-4th at The Memorial. At the U.S. Open, went into the final round in contention after shooting a major championship-tying 63 in the third round. Thomas shot 75 in the final round, though, to drop into to T-9th. After the disappointment, he missed three cuts in a row, including at the British Open. After a T-28th at the Bridgestone, Thomas had a poignant moment, winning the PGA Championship with his family watching at Quail Hollow. The victory marked the eighth time the son of a PGA of America Professional won the PGA Championship, most recently by Keegan Bradley in 2011. Coupled with Jordan Spieth's victory at the British Open, Thomas' triumph marked the first time since 1923 (Bobby Jones/U.S. Open, Gene Sarazen/PGA Championship) that different players aged 25 or younger won in back-to-back majors. Thomas carried the momentum into the FedExCup playoffs. He finished T-6th at the Northern Trust, and with a final-round 66, won the Dell Technologies Championship by three strokes over Jordan Spieth. The next week, he was T-47th at the BMW Championship and went into the Tour Championship ranked 2nd in the FedExCup race. After the third round, he was T-4th, five strokes behind leader Paul Casey. Thomas played hard in the final round, shooting a 66. The only problem: rookie Xander Schauffele was also good, and with a birdie at the 72nd hole, edged Thomas by a stroke. Despite the disappointment of not winning the tournament, Thomas won the FedExCup title and later in the year was voted PGA Tour Player of the Year. So how good was Thomas' year? By winning five times, he joined Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth as the only players since 1960 to win five times in a season, including a major, before the age of 25. Thomas capped his season by helping lead the United States to an eight-point victory over the International team at the Presidents Cup. Making his Presidents Cup debut, Thomas went 3-1-1 for the United States en route to a 19-11 victory at Liberty National.

2018 Notes: Played 23 PGA Tour events, making 21 cuts with 10 top-10 finishes. Placed 7th in the FedExCup rankings. Thomas kept things rolling from 2017, as he won the CJ Cup@Nine Bridges, defeating Marc Leishman in a playoff. He won again at the Honda Classic, this time defeating Luke List in extra holes. The next week, he was in a playoff again, this time at the WGC-Mexico Championship, but Phil Mickelson prevailed. At the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship, Thomas reached the semifinals and lost to Bubba Watson, who won 3 & 2. He also lost the consolation match, 5 & 3, to Alex Noren. If Thomas had won, he would have taken the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking. He went into the Masters with a good chance to overtake Dustin Johnson, but finished T-17th. Thomas took over the No. 1 ranking with his T-11th finish at The Players Championship. Also had a T-8th at The Memorial, but lost his top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking. In preparation for the Ryder Cup, he played at the French Open and finished T-8th. Won his first World Golf Championships event, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, by four strokes. The next week in defense of his PGA Championship crown, he finished T-6th, six strokes behind winner Brooks Koepka. In the FedExCup playoffs, was T-8th at the Northern Trust and T-7th at the Tour Championship. Made his Ryder Cup debut in France and finished the week with a 4-1-0 record. Earned four points and was the leading scorer for the U.S. Team. Was paired with Jordan Spieth in all four of the team sessions, and the duo won three of their four matches. Defeated Rory McIlroy 1-up in the opening singles match on Sunday.

2019 Notes: Played in 20 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Was 3rd in the FedExCup standings. In his first event of the season, the CIMB Classic, Thomas shot a final-round 64 to finish T-5th. He fired a final-round 65 to take 3rd place at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, five strokes behind winner Xander Schauffele. Finished 3rd again at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, then was runner-up at the Genesis Open. Entered the final round with a four-stroke lead, but in terrible weather, shot 75 as J.B. Holmes overtook him to win by one. At the WGC-Mexico Championship, he equaled his own 18-hole record by shooting 62 in the final round to finish 9th.

Thomas had been hampered with a wrist injury that dates back to September of 2018. At the BMW Championship, he tweaked his right wrist in the final round and took a week off. At the Tour Championship, he called it tendonitis and said the injury was minor. He wore the tape during the Ryder Cup, and little was said after that. In the first round of the Honda Classic, on the 10th hole, he tried to escape trouble by smacking a 9-iron and on the follow-through hit a tree. Since then, he was playing with pain. He wasn't able to play at the PGA Championship but did compete at the AT&T Byron Nelson and Charles Schwab Challenge, missing the cut at both stops. Also missed the cut at the U.S. Open. At the Scottish Open, he told the media that the wrist was fine. He shot 65 in the final round to finish T-9th, four strokes out of the Wiesberger/Hebert playoff. Was T-11th at the British Open.

Rory McIlroy Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

McIlroy claimed his third major title at Royal Liverpool at the 2014 British Open and then, weeks later, his fourth in the PGA Championship at Valhalla. At Hoylake, he finished two strokes better than Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia. Led wire-to-wire en route to his victory and was just the seventh player to achieve a British Open victory in such fashion. Began the final round with a six-stroke lead, and following a one-under 71, edged a hard-charging Sergio Garcia by two strokes. With the win, McIlroy became the seventh-youngest player to win his first three major championship titles, and the youngest to win the British Open since Tiger Woods in 2000. He also became the first European to win three different majors and joined Woods and Jack Nicklaus as one of three golfers since the first Masters in 1934 to win three majors by age 25.

At the 2014 PGA Championship, McIlroy posted four rounds in the 60s (66-67-67-68) at Valhalla G.C., taking two putts from 34 feet to par the 72nd hole and win by one shot over Phil Mickelson. His fourth major championship capped a streak of three consecutive victories, making him the first player to perform the feat since Woods won five consecutive starts at the conclusion of 2007 and beginning of 2008.

His big run at the majors started at the 2011 U.S. Open by winning at Congressional Country Club with the lowest score in that championship's 115-year history, 16-under-par. The Northern Irishman fired a 65 to lead after the first round, and he stayed way out in front over the next three rounds, producing an eight-stroke win over runner-up Jason Day. The victory came just two months after he was agonizingly close to winning his first major at the Masters. At Augusta National, he took a four-stroke lead into the final round, only to shoot 80 and finish 10 strokes behind champion Charl Schwartzel.

McIlroy won the 2012 PGA Championship by a record eight strokes, which was achieved with a birdie at the final hole. The record had stood since Nicklaus won the 1980 PGA Championship by seven. McIlroy started the final round with a three-stroke lead and shot a bogey-free 66 to run away from the field. With this win, McIlroy became the youngest multiple major champions since Seve Ballesteros won the 1980 Masters and the sixth youngest of all time. The win also helped McIlroy regain the world No. 1 ranking.

He was born in Holywood, County Down, Northern Ireland, the first and only child of Gerry and Rosie McIlroy. He attended St. Patrick's Primary School and then Sullivan Upper School. Introduced to golf at age 2 by his father, who coached him. Gerry, a fine golfer, once played at a scratch handicap level. Young Rory gave early evidence of his golf potential by hitting a 40-yard drive at age 2. He asked his father virtually every day to take him to the golf course. Family lore relates that he received a new golf club as a present, was shown the correct grip by his father, then took the club to bed with him that night, with his hands holding the grip properly. McIlroy's father held down several jobs to earn additional income for his son's golf development. His mother worked extra shifts at the local 3M plant.

McIlroy enjoyed a glittering amateur career, during which he reached the top of the World Amateur Rankings and became the youngest winner of the prestigious West of Ireland and Irish Closed Championship in 2005. Came to worldwide attention for the first time with a superb opening 68 at the 2007 British Open at Carnoustie, the only bogey-free round of the day, and finished 3rd in his second event as a professional, the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. That performance provided enough prize money to assure his place in the top 115 to become the then-youngest and quickest affiliate member to secure his card in just two events. Represented Europe at the 2004 Junior Ryder Cup and elevated his game to the big time at Celtic Manor Resort in October 2010, where he won two points out of four, including a crucial half in singles against Stewart Cink on the final day.

He lived up to his reputation as one of the game's most exciting young players in 2010 when he was in contention at two major championships and clinched his first PGA Tour title. Enjoyed a fine finish to rank 13th in the Race to Dubai, not quite managing the heights of the season before when he finished 2nd, narrowly missing out on becoming the youngest player to win the Harry Vardon Trophy since Seve Ballesteros in 1976. However, he won the 2010 Quail Hollow Championship in the U.S., thanks to a final-round 62 to defeat Phil Mickelson by four shots. Also finished T-3rd at both the British Open and PGA Championship. His opening 63 at St. Andrews was the lowest first-round score in the history of the tournament.

Joined the PGA Tour in 2010, dropped membership in 2011, but rejoined in 2012. Had a rapid rise up the world rankings. After his first professional start in 2007, he was 308th. Reached the top-100 on Oct. 19, 2008. Climbed into the top 50 with his T-2nd finish at the 2008 Hong Kong Open. Moved into the top 20 when he won the 2009 Dubai Desert Classic, and at the end of that year, arrived among the top-10 with a 3rd at the Dubai World. His win at the 2012 Honda Classic moved him into the No. 1 spot, then he lost it to Luke Donald before retaking it for the rest of the year following his PGA Championship victory.

Played on the 2007 GB&I Walker Cup Team and a member of 2010, '12, '14, '16, and '18 Ryder Cup teams.

2010 Notes: His rookie season on the PGA Tour was highlighted by a final-round 62 at the Quail Hollow Championship en route to his first Tour victory. Posted T-3rd finishes at the British Open and PGA Championship and was a member of the victorious European Ryder Cup team. Finished 1-1-2 in his first Ryder Cup appearance and earned a crucial half-point when he halved his singles match with Stewart Cink in the European team's win. Gave up his PGA Tour membership for 2011.

2011 Notes: Won his first major in record-setting fashion by eight shots at the U.S. Open at Congressional C.C. At 22 years, 1 month, 15 days, he was the ninth-youngest winner of the U.S. Open and the youngest since Bobby Jones in 1923. He was the first player in U.S. Open history to get to double-digits under par in the first two rounds, and on the weekend, the first to reach 13 under, 14 under, 15 under, 16 under, and 17 under par. Rejoined the PGA Tour for 2012.

2012 Notes: Won the Honda Classic, PGA Championship, Deutsche Bank, and BMW Championships in the PGA Tour's FedExCup Playoffs, along with the DP World Tour Championship. He finished 1st in the Race to Dubai and also won the money race on the PGA Tour, as he finished 2nd in the FedExCup standings. In 24 starts around the world, he won five times, was runner-up four times, and had 13 top-5 results. Finished 3-2 for the European team at the Ryder Cup, including a win over Keegan Bradley in their singles match.

2013 Notes: Stumbled a bit the first half of the year, but won in November at the Australian Open. Played 25 events around the world and finished in the top-10 nine times, including runner-up results at the Valero Texas Open and Kolon Korean Open. Finished 50th in the FedExCup race, 41st on the PGA Tour money list, and 35th in the Race to Dubai.

2014 Notes: Won the Race to Dubai and was named the PGA Tour Player of the Year for the second time (also won in 2012). He won four times on both the PGA and European Tours and took home the Byron Nelson Award and Vardon Trophy for Adjusted Scoring Average (68.827), as well as the Arnold Palmer Award as the leading money-winner ($8,280,096). Finished 3rd in the FedExCup standings, thanks to three victories (giving him nine in his PGA Tour career) and two runner-up finishes (the last of which came at the season-ending Tour Championship). He also won the European Tour's flagship BMW PGA Championship and the WGC-Bridgestone. At the Ryder Cup, he earned three points with a 2-1-2 record.

2015 Notes: In January, was named the 2014 Golf Writers Association of America Player of the Year. At the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, he made a late run at victory, shooting a 6-under 66 on the final day to finish 2nd. Two weeks later, turned in four-under-par rounds at Emirates G.C. to capture the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Opened 66-64-66 and maintained a four-stroke lead over Morten Orum Madsen through 54 holes. He was never really threatened during his final 18 holes, making only one bogey against three birdies. Won his fifth European Tour title and his second Dubai Desert Classic to go with his 2009 title. With a final-round 66, finished T-4th at the Masters. In his next three starts, won the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, finished T-8th at The Players Championship, and won the Wells Fargo Championship. After the win, McIlroy missed the cut at the BMW PGA Championship and Irish Open. Was T-9th at the U.S. Open and lost his No. 1 world ranking to Jordan Spieth. Three weeks later, on Saturday July 4th, he suffered a ruptured ligament in his left ankle during a soccer kickabout with friends. With the injury, he was unable to defend his British Open title, making him the first player since Ben Hogan in 1954 not to defend in the major. He also was the first player not to defend a major championship since the death of Payne Stewart in 1999 excluded his opportunity to defend his U.S. Open title in 2000. Returned to play at the PGA Championship but finished T-17th. Played in the last three FedExCup events, where his best finish was T-4th at the BMW Championship. Placed 15th in the FedExCup standings and 7th on the money list. On the European Tour, he ended the year by winning the DP World Tour Championship and placed 1st in the Race to Dubai. Was named 2015 European Tour Golfer of the Year for the third time in four years.

2016 Notes: Finished T-3rd in his first start at Abu Dhabi, then T-6th at the Dubai Desert Classic. Led going into the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship, shot a final-round 74 and finished T-3rd, two shots behind winner Adam Scott. In defense of his WGC-Dell Match Play title, McIlroy reached the semifinals, where he was defeated by Jason Day, 1 up. Lost the consolation match to Rafael Cabrera-Bello, 2 and 1. Finished T-10th at the Masters, then T-4th at the Wells Fargo. After finishing T-12th at The Players Championship, he won for the first time in 2016 at the Irish Open. Followed that victory with a T-4th at The Memorial. Missed the cut at the U.S. Open and was 3rd at the French Open and T-5th at the British Open. McIlroy missed the cut at the PGA Championship, but in the FedExCup Playoffs finished T-31st at The Barclays, won the Deutsche Bank, T-42nd at the BMW Championship, and found himself in a playoff at the Tour Championship between Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell. If he lost, Dustin Johnson would have won the playoffs, but McIlroy made birdie at the fourth extra hole to defeat Moore. It was the first time that McIlroy had won the FedExCup Playoffs. His previous best was 2nd in 2012. Making his fourth start at the Ryder Cup, he went 3-2 in his five matches in the European team's 17-11 loss to the United States at Hazeltine. His week ended with a 1-down loss to Patrick Reed in the opening singles match on Sunday. Played two European events in the fall, finishing T-4th at the WGC-HSBC Champions and T-9th at the DP World Tour Dubai. Was 5th in the Race to Dubai.

2017 Notes: Started the year by losing a playoff to Graeme Storm at the BMW South African Open in mid-January. He played through pain in Johannesburg by taking anti-inflammatory medicines and having his back taped. Withdrew from the following week's Abu Dhabi Championship following a scan that showed a stress fracture in one of his ribs. Rested the injury for seven weeks before returning to competition at the WGC-Mexico Championship. He climbed into the solo lead with rounds of 68-65 before weekend scores of 70-71 led to a T-7th finish. Two weeks later, he played at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and finished T-4th, advancing him to 2nd in the Official World Golf Ranking. Finished T-7th at the Masters. Thirteen days after the Masters on April 22nd, he married Erica Stoll in a star-studded ceremony at Ashford Castle in Ireland. McIlroy returned at the Tour Championship and finished T-35th, but after that withdrew from the BMW PGA Championship and The Memorial, citing the lingering rib injury. Teed it up in the U.S. Open at Erin Hills but missed the cut. Also missed the cut at the Irish Open and the Scottish Open but finished T-17th at the Travelers. After missing the cuts at the Irish Open and the Scottish Open, he was able to finish with a final-round 67 to climb into a T-4th at the British Open. A couple of days later, he fired his caddie of nine years, J.P. Fitzgerald, and for the WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship, replaced Fitzgerald with his best friend, Harry Diamond. Fitzgerald was on the bag for all of Rory's four major championship victories. With Diamond as caddie, he finished T-5th at the WGC-Bridgestone. Played in three FedExCup playoff events and ended the PGA Tour season 58th in the standings. He returned to Europe and was 2nd in the British Masters and T-63rd at the Alfred Dunhill Links. He decided to take the rest of the year off (three-and-a-half-months), feeling he needed the rest to fully recover from his rib problem. He ended the European Tour 13th in the Race to Dubai.

2018 Notes: Returned to action, saying he was feeling great with no rib problems. In his first start back, he finished T-3rd at Abu Dhabi, and the next week was 2nd at the Dubai Desert Classic, one shot behind winner Haotong Li. Flew to America to play on the PGA Tour, and in four starts, he missed two cuts. His best finish was T-20th at the Genesis Open. On the Monday before the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he talked with Brad Faxon, who gave him some thoughts on putting. McIlroy used those keys to have his best putting week on the PGA Tour, taking a career-low 100 putts to win the Palmer by three shots over Bryson DeChambeau. McIlroy birdied five of his last six holes on the way to a bogey-free 64. The next week at the WGC-Dell Match Play, an event he won in 2015, he lost two of his three matches and didn't advance out of group play. At the Masters, he was in the final pairing with Patrick Reed and shot 74, finishing six shots back for a T-5th result. Placed 2nd at the BMW PGA Championship, two shots behind winner Francesco Molinari. Was T-8th at The Memorial but missed the cut at both the Players Championship and U.S. Open, his third consecutive missed cut at a U.S. Open. Bounced back at the British Open, where he finished T-2nd, two shots behind winner Francesco Molinari. Shot a final-round 73 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish T-6th. In the last three FedExCup Playoffs, he finished T-12th at the Dell Technologies Championship, 5th at the BMW Championship, and T-7th at the Tour Championship. Ranked 13th in the final FedExCup standings. Made his fifth consecutive Ryder Cup and went 2-3-0. Lost to Justin Thomas in the singles, 1 up. Ended the year on the European Tour with a T-21st at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and T-20th at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai. Ranked 7th in the Race to Dubai.

2019 Notes: Played in 19 PGA Tour events making 17 cuts with 14 top-ten finishes. Was first in the FedExCup standings, the second time he has won the FedExCup. He was also the 2019 PGA Tour Player-of-the-Year. Starting the year was not out of the top-10 in first seven events until his T-21st at the Masters. Was T-4th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, T-5th at the Farmers Insurance Open, T-4th at the Genesis Open. Was runner-up at the WGC-Mexico Championship after taking the first-round lead with a 63. Despite his 16-under-par total, he couldn't come close to Dustin Johnson's winning 21-underscore. Was T-6th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he shot a final-round 72 to finish four behind winner Francesco Molinari. Won The Players Championship with a final-round 70, a shot better than Jim Furyk. Became the third player to win The Players Championship, a major championship, the FedExCup, and a World Golf Championships event. The win was his 15th on the PGA Tour at the age of 29 years, 10 months, 14 days. Went undefeated in three group-play matches to advance to the Round of 16, where he met Tiger Woods for the first time in match play. Lost to Woods, 2 and 1, to finish T-9th. Went into the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship two shots off the lead, shot 73, and finished T-8th. Shot 69-69 over the weekend to finish T-8th at the PGA Championship. Playing in the RBC Canadian Open for the first time, McIlroy shot 64-61 to lap the field and win by 7 shots over Shane Lowry and Webb Simpson, and it would be McIlroy's 16th win on the PGA Tour. Was T-9th at the U.S. Open. Surprised the world by shooting 79 in the first round at the Open Championship in Northern Ireland at Portrush and missed the cut. Was T-4th at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, five back of winner Brooks Koepka. Entered the FedExCup playoffs in 2nd Place behind Brooks Koepka. With his T-6th at the Northern Trust, four shots back of Patrick Reed, he fell to 3rd in the FedExCup race. With his T-19th at the BMW Championship, he fell back to 5th place. But with rounds of 66-67-68-66 at the Tour Championship, he was able to make up the five-shot deficit Justin Thomas had on him and cruise to a four-stroke shot win over Xander Schauffele. He then put his attention on the European Tour, for the year, he played in 13 European Tour events, making the cut in 12 of them and was 6th in the Race to Dubai.

Collin Morikawa (bio)

Collin Morikawa Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Morikawa got started at a very young age, playing the Chevy Chase course, a 9-hole course comprised of 10 greens and 36 tees just north of Los Angeles. At the age of 5, he took his first golf lessons at a mini-junior camp at Scholl Canyon in Glendale. From age 8 through high school, Morikawa met with Rick Sessinghaus weekly, an instructor who had a doctorate in sports psychology. That got Morikawa thinking more about the mental part of the game at an early age. He was a great junior player in Southern California and his breakthrough moment came when he won the 2013 Western Junior in Indianapolis.

Morikawa had to choose which college to attend. It came down to UCLA, USC, Stanford and Cal. It wasn't easy, especially since his mother went to USC, but Collin chose Cal, mostly because it had one of the top five business schools in the country along with a top collegiate golf program.

Morikawa established himself as one of the top collegiate golfers in his time at the University of California. He is a two-time Ben Hogan Award finalist and is Cal's only four-time All-American and only three-time first-team All-American in program history. But the accomplishment he is most proud of was being a graduate from the Haas School of Business in four years.

Morikawa enjoyed a decorated career at Cal, where he was the 2018-2019 Pac-12 Men's Golfer of the Year, a two-time All-Nicklaus Team recipient, and Cal's all-time stroke average leader (69.78). In his career at Cal, he had five victories and 22 top-5 finishes in 48 events.

He finished inside the top 20 in each of his last 25 events and had streaks of 10 consecutive finishes in the top seven (his first 10 events in 2018-19), as well as 16 consecutive top-10s that ended with a T-14th at the 2019 NCAA Myrtle Beach Regionals. He then won the 2019 Pac-12 Conference title and finished T-6th in the 2019 NCAA Championships at The Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Ark.

Morikawa was named AmateurGolf.com's Player of the Year in 2016 and 2017. He has played in four U.S. Amateur championships, including a finish in the round of 16 in 2017. Morikawa had a perfect 4-0 record at the 2017 Walker Cup and led the USA to a 19-7 victory over Great Britain & Ireland.

Things could have been totally different in 2016. He got a spot to play in his first professional event, the Air Capital Classic on the then Web.Com Tour. The event in Wichita, Kansas, saw Morikawa shoot rounds of 67-70-63-63 for a 17-under-par 263 total to tie Ollie Schniederjans and J.J. Spaun and force a playoff, which Schniederjans won on the second playoff hole. In the years after, it always stuck in Collin's mind: What couldn't have happened if he had won? For his last three years of college, agents contacted him with what could have earned if he turned pro, but Morikawa stuck to the plan to get his business degree. He did make his PGA Tour debut as an amateur at the 2016 Safeway Open, where he missed the cut.

In 2018, he represented Team USA at the World Amateur Team Championship in Ireland, where he helped the Americans to a second-place finish in a 72-team field and was T-8th individually. He also represented the United States at the 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup, where he won three of his four matches to help Team USA to a 38.5-21.5 victory over Team International. At the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, he competed as an amateur and finished T-64th. Morikawa did have one colleague dream, and that was to help Cal to a national championship. The Bears' only men's golf championship was in 2004, but that dream was unfulfilled, which Morikawa doesn't feel bad about since he tried his best. In his last month as a senior in 2019, he got himself ready to turn professional, writing letters to tournaments looking for sponsor exemptions.

He carded a 5-under 137 at the Columbus, Ohio sectional qualifier to earn a spot in his first U.S. Open.

Morikawa turned professional after graduating from Cal in late May and got a sponsor exemption for the RBC Canadian Open. In his professional debut, he finished T-14th, shooting 67 in the final found. He finished T-35th at the U.S. Open and T-36th at the Travelers. Then he hit his stride. At the 3M Open, he finished T-2nd, a stroke behind winner Matthew Wolff, who eagled the 72nd hole. The next week, he was T-4th at the John Deere Classic, four strokes behind winner Dylan Frittelli. At the Barracuda Championship, which was his sixth PGA Tour event as a professional and his 8th career PGA Tour event, he won the Modified Stableford System by three points as he birdied four of his last five holes. With the win, he earned membership into the PGA Tour and also got into the FedExCup race. In the playoffs, he finished T-52nd at the Northern Trust and T-48th at the BMW Championship. He played nine PGA Tour events, making nine cuts with three top-10s, and was 59th in the FedExCup standings.

2020 Notes: In his first full season on the PGA Tour, Morikawa played in 21 tournaments, making 19 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. He was 6th in the FedExCup standings. In his first start of the season, finished T-10th at the Safeway Open. Was T-7th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and T-9th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. After the break, finished 2nd at the Charles Schwab Challenge, missing a short three-footer for par on the first playoff hole and losing to Daniel Berger. Got into another playoff at the Workday Charity Open, where he defeated Justin Thomas on the third playoff hole to win in his 26 starts. He became the first player since Tiger Woods in 1996 to win twice before missing two cuts as a professional. A month later, Morikawa won again, this time capturing his first major championship title at the PGA Championship. Thanks to an eagle when he drove the par-4 16th hole, Morikawa won by two strokes over Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey. It was only his second start in a major and at the age of 23 years, 6 months and 3 days old became the fourth player since WWII to win the PGA Championship before turning 24, joining Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. Going a step further, since 1970, Morikawa joined a list of six that won a major at age 23 or younger: Jerry Pate, Seve Ballesteros, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. Morikawa became the first player to record a closing 36-hole score of 129 or better in all of the majors and his final-round 64 joined Steve Elkington's 64 in the final round in 1995 as the lowest final round by a PGA Championship winner. Morikawa became the 9th player to win the PGA Championship in his tournament debut, and since 1970 became the third to win a major in two or fewer starts (others: Ben Curtis/first start 2003 British Open and Keegan Bradley/first start 2011 PGA Championship). In the FedExCup playoffs, he missed the cut at the Northern Trust, was T-20th at the BMW Championship and 6th at the Tour Championship.

2021 Notes: After missing the cut at the U.S. Open and Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, he finished T-12th at the CJ Cup@Shadow Creek.

Bryson DeChambeau (bio)

Bryson DeChambeau Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Bryson James Aldrich DeChambeau was born in Modesto, Calif., and started playing golf at age seven when his family moved to Clovis, which is east of Fresno. He was always the smartest in his class. At age 6, his math skills were off the charts as he was a master of math and even understanding algebra. During high school, he would rewrite textbooks and, by doing that, was able to understand things on a comprehensive level. Even today, his clubs have physics formulas stamped on them.

DeChambeau has always done things differently. His signature Hogan cap dates back to when he was 13. He saw the cap in a pro shop, bought it, and it has become his signature look ever since. At 15, his instructor Mike Schy gave him "The Golfing Machine," a book by Homer Kelley and, after reading it many times, came up with the guidance of Schy, a single-plane swing that's called a "zero shifting motion." At 17, he and Schy developed his first set of single-length irons by grinding down a bunch of shaft flexes and clubs to build his first set. And it's not just the length of each iron shaft. Bryson's clubs, which are 37 and a half inches long, the length of a standard 7-iron, are set at 72-degree lie angles that are 10 degrees more upright than standard. To achieve a consistent swing weight, all the club heads are 278 grams. He uses JumboMax golf grips on his clubs, which are the largest on the market. They help him hold the club in his palms. As an amateur, he had a weird trait when he would float his golf balls in water and Epsom salts to check that the center of gravity is perfectly in the middle. At age 16, he won the California State Junior Championship in 2010. Two years later, he graduated from Clovis East High School and went to SMU in Dallas, Texas, on a scholarship and majored in physics.

At SMU, DeChambeau wore the Ben Hogan-style cap while playing golf and dressed a bit like another SMU golfer, Payne Stewart. He earned first-team All-America honors and was the American Athletic Conference Player of the Year as a member of the SMU team in 2014-15.

In June of 2015, DeChambeau finished his junior season at SMU by capturing the 2015 NCAA Division I individual crown, recording a score of 280 (-8) to win by a stroke. He was named a first-team All-American, the first in SMU history. Other collegiate victories include the 2014 American Athletic Conference Championships and 2015 Erin Hills Collegiate. DeChambeau finished 2nd at the 2013 Conference USA Championship. He was named first-team All-Conference, as well as the Conference USA Freshman of the Year.

He also helped the U.S. win the Eisenhower Trophy at the 2014 World Amateur Team Championship by posting an event- and course-record 61 during the second round. He advanced to the Round of 16 in the inaugural 2015 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship with partner Austin Smotherman after finishing 5th in the stroke-play portion. Prior to his win in 2015, his best U.S. Amateur finish (in four appearances) was his advance to the Round of 16 in 2014. He advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2014 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. DeChambeau made his PGA Tour debut as an amateur in June 2015 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic near Memphis, Tenn., and finished 45th. He played in his first major championship when he qualified for the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay but missed the cut by four strokes.

In August 2015, he won the U.S. Amateur title, defeating Derek Bard 7 & 6 in the 36-hole final at Olympia Fields just outside of Chicago. He became the fifth player to win both the NCAA and U.S. Amateur titles in the same year, joining Jack Nicklaus (1961), Phil Mickelson (1990), Tiger Woods (1996) and Ryan Moore (2004). After winning the U.S. Amateur, Bryson got to play on the 2015 USA Walker Cup Team -- he won two matches and halved another in the team's loss at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. On returning to Texas, DeChambeau said he was looking forward to his senior year at SMU, where he majored in physics.

But on September 29th, 2015, DeChambeau was faced with a tough decision when the NCAA banned both the basketball and golf programs for three years. The ban meant he would not be able to play college golf for SMU or even defend his NCAA title. So on October 14th, Bryson decided to leave SMU in his senior year to prepare himself for his impending professional golf career.

After the announcement, he played as an amateur at the Argentina Open (MC), Australian Masters (T-2nd), Australian Open (T-30th), Abu Dhabi Championship (T-54th), Qatar Masters (67th), Dubai Desert Classic (T-18th), the Arnold Palmer Invitational (T-27th) and the Masters (T-21st). In the final round of the Palmer Invitational, DeChambeau was paired with Rory McIlroy. Both young men put on a show, as DeChambeau bogeyed the final hole for a 66 while McIlroy birdied it for a 65. At the Masters, he was among the leaders in the second round before a final-hole triple bogey sent him down the leader board to a T-8th. Bryson scrambled over the weekend, shooting 77-72 to finish T-21st and Low Amateur.

He turned professional after the 2016 Masters, thus forfeiting exemptions into the U.S. Open and the British Open. His first professional start was at the RBC Heritage, where he finished T-4th, four strokes behind winner Branden Grace. When he turned professional and started playing on tour, he got to be known as the "Golfing Scientist" and "Mad Scientist" due to his unique approach to the game. DeChambeau is the ultimate science guy, applying a variety of analytics to help improve his game. He employs every means of technology, including biomechanics experts, to understand optimal swing speeds, and dietary and medical experts in order to transform his body from a tall, slender man into a version of the Hulk cartoon character. He also got in the habit of consuming 3,500 calories per day, including drinking up to seven protein shakes. His autograph is the most unusual on tour. Though he's right-handed, Bryson can sign his autograph backward with his left hand. He spent hours perfecting his handwriting in southpaw fashion.

2016 Notes: The season was highlighted by a top-5 performance on the PGA Tour in his professional debut and his maiden professional victory on the Korn Ferry Tour, securing his 2016-17 PGA Tour card in his first-ever Korn Ferry Tour start. Made his professional debut at the 2016 RBC Heritage, finishing T-4th, just four strokes behind champion Branden Grace. After finishing T-38th at The Memorial, was T-15th at the U.S. Open. Earned a spot in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals via non-member FedExCup points following 10 starts on the PGA Tour. Won in his Korn Ferry Tour debut at the DAP Championship, the first event of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Led Zack Sucher by one stroke entering the final round, but struggled early with bogeys on two of his first six holes. He tied for the lead with his first birdie of the final round at the par-5 ninth hole and took a one-stroke lead with his second birdie of the day on the par-5 16th. On the par-3 17th, he fell into a share of the lead with three others after three-putting for the first time the week. After hitting his approach into the left rough on the 18th, he made a clutch up-and-down to secure a spot in a four-way playoff. He answered Andres Gonzales' 30-foot birdie with a three-foot birdie of his own to force another playoff hole, where he defeated Gonzales with a par for his first professional victory. Locked up his PGA Tour card for the 2016-17 season with rounds of 64-70-68-71 - 273 (-7) and the $180,000 first-place check. Became the 15th player in Korn Ferry Tour history to win in their first start on the Korn Ferry Tour.

2017 Notes: Played in 31 PGA Tour events, making 14 cuts with two top-10 finishes. Was 49th in the final FedExCup standings. After his win on the Korn Ferry Tour the year before, he struggled. In his first 14 starts in events around the world, he made the cut in only four of them. His best finish was T-27th at the Valspar Championship. His best finish on the PGA Tour was T-2nd at the Puerto Rico Open. The next week, he finished T-44th in Houston but then missed the cut in his next seven events. His game seemed to come around after missing the cut at the U.S. Open, his seventh missed cut in a row. Was T-26th at the Travelers, T-17th at the Quicken Loans, and T-14th at The Greenbrier. Then everything came together at the John Deere Classic, where he shot 66-65-70-65 to win his first PGA Tour title and a last-minute invite to play at the British Open, where he missed the cut. Was T-33rd at the PGA Championship and played in three FedExCup playoff events, finishing 49th in the final standings.

2018 Notes: Started the year putting side-saddle but had to abandon the style when the USGA ruled one of his side-saddle putters was non-conforming. Played 26 PGA Tour events, making 22 cuts. Was in the top-10 nine times. Started the year with a T-7th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and T-5th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Shot a final-round 68 to take 2nd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, three strokes behind winner Rory McIlroy. Was T-3rd at the Heritage, one stroke out of the playoff, and 4th at the Wells Fargo. He registered a win at The Memorial with a birdie on the second playoff hole to defeat Byeong Hun An to win. At 24 years, 8 months, 18 days, earned his second PGA Tour win in his 62nd career start. Was T-9th at the Travelers Championship. After finishing T-51st at the British Open, played in the Porsche European Open in Germany. Was tied for the lead with Richard McEvoy going into the final round, but shot 78 with a 43 on the second nine to finish T-13th, five strokes behind winner McEvoy.

Was 1st in the FedExCup standing going into the Tour Championship, but after finishing 19th at East Lake, closed the year 3rd in the final standings.

2019 Notes: Played in 21 PGA Tour events, making 17 cuts with five top-10 finishes. In his first start of the year, he won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, defeating Patrick Cantlay by a stroke.

Finished 7th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and T-10th at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Won again at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, his first international victory and maiden European Tour title. His 24-under-par total was a tournament record as he won by seven strokes. The win in Dubai marked his fourth victory in his last nine worldwide starts. The next week, he finished T-6th at the Saudi International. Was T-29th at the Masters, T-8th at the Travelers Championship and T-2nd at the 3M Open, a stroke behind Matthew Wolff, who eagled his final hole. Ended the year with a T-12th finish at the Tour Championship and 12th-place finish in the FedExCup standings. Played in his first Presidents Cup, where he lost a fourball match with Tony Finau and halved his singles match with Adam Hadwin.

2020 Notes: Played in 17 PGA Tour events, making 14 cuts with nine top-10 finishes. Was 22nd in the FedExCup standings. Finished T-4th in defense of his Shriners Hospitals for Children Open title. Started a streak of good play at the Genesis Invitational, finishing T-5th three strokes behind winner Adam Scott. In his next start, was 2nd at the WGC-Mexico Championship, a stroke behind winner Patrick Reed. It was his first top-10 result in a WGC event. Finished 4th in his next start at the Arnold Palmer invitational, three strokes behind winner Tyrell Hatton. During the break, DeChambeau found himself bored and wanted to do something. At SMU, he was a physics major and a total nonconformist. He would soak golf balls in Epsom salts to determine their center of gravity. DeChambeau signed autographs backward with his left hand even though he is right-handed. In his mind, he has to chase down the most scientifically efficient way to get the golf ball in the hole. Over the course of the last year, he threw himself into an extreme weight lifting routine and added 40 pounds to his physique, mostly to his upper body. He added 20 pounds before the break and the other 20 while he was isolating because of COVID-19. After the break, he showed up at Colonial at 240 pounds and with added strength to increase his ball speed. It showed. Of the 50 longest drives of the week at the Charles Schwab, he owned 10 of them with eight over 349 yards, and finished T-3rd, a stroke out of the Berger/Morikawa playoff. The next week, finished T-8th at the RBC Heritage, then T-6th at the Travelers Championship. He won his sixth PGA Tour title at Rocket Mortgage Classic, defeating Matthew Wolff by three strokes. DeChambeau became the first winner in the Shotlink era (since 2003) to lead the field in Strokes Gained Off-the-Tee and Strokes Gained Putting. He also led the field in Driving Distance (350.6 yards). The win marked his seventh consecutive top-10 finish. Cooled down a bit, missing the cut at The Memorial. At the PGA Championship, he fired rounds of 66 on Saturday and Sunday to finish T-4th, three strokes behind winner Collin Morikawa. When DeChambeau birdied four of his first seven holes on Sunday, he had a share of the lead, but bogeys at 8 and 9 dropped him back. His T-4th was his first top-10 in 15 major starts. In the FedExCup playoffs, he missed the cut at the Northern Trust, was 50th at the BMW Championship and 22nd at the Tour Championship.

2021 Notes: Won the September U.S. Open by six strokes over Matthew Wolff. It was his first major championship title and seventh win on the PGA Tour. The victory came in his 16th major championship appearance and sixth at the U.S. Open. Became the 12th player to win the U.S. Amateur and the U.S. Open. Became the third player to win those two events and an individual title at the NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships, joining Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. Marked the first major championship victory by a former SMU player since Payne Stewart won the 1999 U.S. Open. Was the only player in the field with an under-par final-round score (3-under 67) and the only player to finish the tournament under par (6-under). After a first-round 62 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, he finished T-8th.

Patrick Cantlay Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Cantlay, who began playing golf at age 3, just completed his sophomore year at UCLA. Both of his parents are graduates of the crosstown rival, USC. He finished T-2nd in stroke play at the 2010 U.S. Amateur at Chambers Bay and advanced to the semifinals, where he lost to eventual champion Peter Uihlein, 4 & 3.

He won the 2011 Div. I Jack Nicklaus Award as Collegiate Player of the Year for his stellar freshman season at UCLA. He also won the Phil Mickelson Award as the nation's outstanding freshman and was named a PING first-team All-American selection. Won four collegiate events in his freshman season and had seven top-5 finishes. Set a new UCLA single-season scoring average of 70.5. Was named the Pac-10 Player of the Year in 2011, as well as Freshman of the Year, becoming just the second golfer in league history to earn both awards in the same season.

Advanced to the Round of 32 at the 2009 U.S. Junior Amateur. Played at the 2009 U.S. Amateur but missed the cut for match play. Won the 2010 California State high-school championship and finished runner-up at the 2010 Southern Amateur. Named high-school golfer of the year by the Orange County Register in 2009 and 2010. Named athlete of the year in his high-school league. Won the 2009 and 2010 Southern California CIF Regional. Won the 2008 ClubCorp Mission Hills, 2008 Junior America's Cup and 2008 Hogan Cup.

In 2011, Cantlay was the low amateur at the U.S. Open with scores of 75-67-70-72 -- 284 (E), tying for 21st place. Played on the 2011 Walker Cup team and was 2-1-1 in competition. At the 2011 U.S. Amateur, he advanced to the finals before Kelly Kraft defeated him 2-up. At the 2011 Travelers Championship, he shot a second-round 60, the lowest round by an amateur in the PGA Tour history. In 2012, he finished T-47th at Masters and earned Low-Amateur honors. At the NCAA Championship, his team lost to Oregon in the quarterfinals, but he finished T-4th in the individual competition, four strokes behind the winner. He is 35 under par overall in 65 rounds at UCLA. Ended his amateur career by finishing T-47th at the U.S. Open, but Jordan Spieth earned low-amateur honors. Cantlay turned professional and missed the cut at the Travelers. He played 10 PGA Tour events for the year, with his best finish a T-31st at the Wyndham Championship. Played in four Korn Ferry Tour events and contended in two of them. At the Chiquita Classic, shot weekend rounds of 65-65 to force a playoff with Russell Henley, which Henley won on the first extra hole. At TPC Sawgrass' Dye's Valley Course, home of the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open, Cantlay was T-2nd through 54 holes, a stroke behind leader B.J. Staten. He eventually shot a two-over-par 72 on the final day to drop to T-5th. At the end of the year, went to PGA Tour Q-School and finished T-95th.

2013 Notes: Fast-tracked for success, Cantlay instead was derailed. Things started great with a win in his second Korn Ferry Tour start at the Colombia Championship. He also got into the AT&T Pebble Beach and finished T-9th. Things went terribly wrong in the second round at Colonial, though, where he made a swing and experienced extreme back pain. Hoping the discomfort would subside, he played seven holes before withdrawing. Weeks later, he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his L5 vertebrae. Cantlay didn't play for three months, and his position atop the Korn Ferry Tour money list plummeted. Compelled to return that fall to secure his card, he missed two consecutive cuts before gutting out a runner-up finish at the Hotel Fitness, the first season-ending playoff event. That would prove to be his last start on the Korn Ferry Tour due to back pain. He didn't play again for seven months.

2014 Notes: Played for the first time at the Byron Nelson Championship, finishing T-71st. His back still bothered him. He played four more times, finishing T-23rd at The Greenbrier, but missed the cut in the other three events.

2015 Notes: Cantlay got a diagnosis from his doctor that he had a stress fracture in his lower back, and he couldn't touch a club, not even a putter, for 10 months. In November 2014, he played in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and finished 76th. It would be 14 months before he would rejoin the PGA Tour, but not before another major tragedy hit him.

2016 Notes: Cantlay was set to play in the CareerBuilder Challenge, but his back was still hurting. In February, he was walking with his caddie and friend Chris Roth around Newport Beach. They talked about his back problems of the last three years, and while crossing a major intersection, a car crashed into Roth, sending him flying through the air. Cantlay called for help. That night, Roth died, and this sent Cantlay into another performance tailspin. Cantlay didn't touch a club until the end of the year. He visited doctors in Denver, New York, and Los Angeles. He even flew to Germany to undergo the Regenokine procedure made famous by basketball star Kobe Bryant. Nothing worked. They were no closer to a solution, but Cantlay changed his training routine, and at the end of the year, the pain subsided. He started hitting balls again and his lifetime coach, Jamie Mulligan, helped modify his swing to reduce back stress.

2017 Notes: Made his first start at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where he finished T-48th. A month later, he played at the Valspar Championship and bogeyed the 72nd hole to finish second behind Adam Hadwin. With the solid finish and a check for $680,400, he was able to reclaim his PGA Tour card. A month later, Cantlay put together another great 72 holes at the RBC Heritage and finished two strokes behind winner Wesley Bryan for a T-3rd result. After his T-33rd at the PGA Championship, he continued his consistent play and ranked 77th in the FedExCup race. In his first playoff event, he finished T-10th at the Northern Trust. Was T-13th at the Dell Technologies and T-9th at the BMW Championship. He climbed to 29th in the standings with good results, giving him a spot at the Tour Championship. Cantlay and Xander Schauffele were the only rookies to advance to the Tour Championship. With a T-20th finish, Cantlay ended the FedExCup race in 29th place.

2018 Notes: Played 23 PGA Tour events, making 21 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. He started his year with a T-15th at the WGC-HSBC Champions, then flew to Las Vegas and won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in his 43rd PGA Tour start. He defeated Whee Kim and Alex Cejka with a par at the second playoff hole for his first Tour title. He finished T-4th, three shots behind winner Bubba Watson, at the Genesis Open, where he held a share of the 18- and 36-hole leads. Finished T-7th at the RBC Heritage, 4th at the Memorial (one stroke out of the playoff), and T-6th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. At the FedExCup playoffs, Cantlay started with a T-8th at the Northern Trust and reached the Tour Championship. Finished the year 20th in the FedExCup standings. Ended the year T-5th at the Hero Challenge.

2019 Notes: Played 21 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts with nine top-10 finishes. He placed 27th in the final FedExCup standings. After a T-7th at the WGC-HSBC Champions, fell one stroke short of defending his title at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, finishing as runner-up behind winner Bryson DeChambeau. Was T-9th at the Desert Classic, and at the WGC-Mexico Championship started with a 72 and rebounded with rounds of 67-65-70 to finish T-6th. Shot 64-68 to finish T-9th at the Masters after making the cut on the number, two over par, and was T-50th. Cantlay briefly shared the lead in the late stages of the final round after making an eagle on 15, but he dropped back with a three-putt bogey on 16 and another bogey on 17. Finished T-3rd the next week at the RBC Heritage, two strokes behind winner C.T. Pan. At the PGA Championship, had his second consecutive top-10 in a major, as he finished T-3rd. Earned his second PGA Tour victory in his 78th start at the Memorial Tournament, coming from 4 shots back. Fired a bogey-free 8-under 64 at Muirfield Village Golf Club to win by two strokes over Adam Scott after starting the day four strokes off Martin Kaymer's 54-hole lead. His 64 marked the lowest final-round score by a winner in tournament history. Joined Tiger Woods as the only past Jack Nicklaus Award winner (as the 2011 top collegiate player) to win the Memorial Tournament. In the FedExCup Playoffs, finished T-12th with four subpar rounds at the Northern Trust. The next week at the BMW Championship, he played in the final group and trailed 54-hole leader Justin Thomas by six strokes. Cantlay shot 65 to finish 2nd but wasn't able to catch Thomas, who shot 68. He went into the Tour Championship ranked 2nd in the FedExCup playoffs but couldn't take advantage of his 8-under-par start, and with rounds of 70-71-75-73, he finished T-21st. At the Presidents Cup, he compiled a 3-2-0 record, including a 3 & 2 singles win over Joaquin Niemann.

2020 Notes: Played in 12 PGA Tour events, making 11 cuts with three top-10 finishes. In the FedExCup standings was 34th. Played well again for a third consecutive year at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open but ended play tied with Kevin Na and lost the playoff when Cantlay bogeyed the second playoff hole. Shot a final-round 68 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions to finish 4th, three strokes out of the Schauffele/Reed/Thomas playoff. After finishing T-17th at the Genesis Invitational, he took three weeks off to undergo surgery to clean up from a November 2018 operation to correct a deviated septum. The septum is the bone and cartilage that divides the two nostrils in the nose, and surgery is the only way to promote better airflow. In his first start after the break, finished T-11th at the Travelers Championship, then T-7th at the Workday Charity. In the FedExCup playoffs, he missed the cut at the Northern Trust and finished T-12th at the BMW Championship.

2021 Notes: Was tied for the lead going into the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open butshot 73 in the final round to finish T-8th. Shot a final-round 65 to win the Zozo Championship@Sherwood by a stroke over Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm.

Patrick Reed Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Reed's 2018 Masters win secured his first major championship title in his 166th PGA Tour start at the age of 27 years, 8 months, 3 days. Reed scored 13-under on the par-5s for the week, two off the tournament record. After he started with three rounds in the 60s, a final-round 71 prevented him from becoming the first player in Masters history to shoot four rounds in the 60s. The victory marked his fourth top-10 in a row on the Tour, a first in his career. Became the fourth consecutive first-time major championship winner at the Masters, following Sergio Garcia (2017), Danny Willett (2016) and Jordan Spieth (2015).

Reed graduated from University High School in Baton Rouge, La. While there, he won the 2006 Junior British Open and qualified for the 2007 U.S. Amateur. Reed led University High to state championships in both 2006 and '07. He also won state medalist honors in 2007. He earned Rolex AJGA All-America honors in 2005, '06, and '07. Started his college golf at Georgia in 2008-09. He then transferred to Augusta State University (now Augusta University), where he majored in business. Helped lead Augusta State to the NCAA Division I Golf Championship in 2010 and '11. Advanced to the semifinals of the 2008 U.S. Amateur. Suffered a 3 & 2 loss to eventual U.S. Amateur champion Danny Lee, the top-ranked amateur in the world. He won the 2010 Jones Cup Invitational. Reed turned professional in 2011 after the NCAA Championship. Played in 2014, '16 and '18 Ryder Cup Matches, and 2015, '17 and '19 Presidents Cup.

2012 Notes: Played 12 events on the PGA Tour on sponsors exemptions and through Monday-qualifying (six times). He made seven cuts and earned more than $300,000. Best finish was T-11th at the Frys.com Open. He finished T-22nd at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament to earn his PGA Tour card for 2013.

2013 Notes: Won the Wyndham Championship, defeating Jordan Spieth in a playoff at the second extra hole with a birdie. Earned his first career PGA Tour victory at age 23 years, 13 days in his 38th start. Became the first player to win with his wife, Justine, as a caddie since Steve Stricker won the 1996 BMW Championship with his wife, Nicki, carrying his bag. Joined Vaughn Taylor as the only Augusta State University product to win on Tour. The win helped Reed get to three of the four FedExCup playoff events. Finished 54th in the FedExCup rankings and 35th on the money list.

2014 Notes: With his brother-in-law Kessler Karain as his caddie (because his wife was expecting their first child), Reed won the Humana Challenge by two strokes. Two months later, he earned his third title in 14 starts, winning the WGC-Cadillac Championship with rounds of 68-75-69-72 for a wire-to-wire, one-stroke victory over Bubba Watson and Jamie Donaldson. At age 23 years, 7 months, 4 days, became the youngest player to win a WGC event. Was the first player since records have been kept in 1970 to compete in his first major (the Masters) with three PGA Tour wins already under his belt. After the Cadillac win, Reed struggled until the WGC-Bridgestone, where he finished T-4th. At the first FedExCup playoffs event, The Barclays, he birdied three of his last four holes at Ridgewood C.C. on Sunday to finish T-9th at nine-under-par, five strokes behind Hunter Mahan. The next week, he added a T-74th at the Deutsche Bank Championship, then a T-53rd at the BMW Championship to advance to the final event of the playoffs. At the Tour Championship, he finished T-19th at East Lake G.C. to finish 21st in the FedExCup standings and 14th on the money list. Made his debut at the Ryder Cup and went 3-0-1 in his four matches in the U.S. loss.

2015 Notes: Was clutch down the stretch at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, closing the gap on tournament-leader Jimmy Walker by holing an 80-yard wedge shot for eagle at the par-4 16th and carding birdies at Nos. 15 and 18 to force a playoff. Reed then drained a 19-foot, 6-inch birdie putt on the first extra hole to improve his playoff record to 2-0, in the process notching his fourth PGA Tour win in his 72nd start. He became just the fourth player in the last 20 years to record his fourth win before age 24 years, 6 months. After opening with back-to-back, three-under-par 67s at the Honda Classic, posted scores of 70-73 in the final two rounds to secure a T-7th result in the Monday-finish event. Two starts later, at the Valspar Championship, nearly became the season's first multiple winner. He made a 31-foot birdie putt at the 72nd hole, good for a bogey-free, five-under 66, and a spot in a playoff with Jordan Spieth and 2008 Valspar Championship winner Sean O'Hair. Fell victim to Spieth's birdie putt at the third extra hole following solid up-and-downs at the first two holes to save par and remain in the playoff. After that performance, Reed's best finish was at the U.S. Open, where he was a co-leader after the second round, but shot 76-71 over the weekend to finish T-14th. Posted a T-4th result at the Deutsche Bank and finished 12th in the FedExCup standings and 18th on the money list. Went 1-2-1 in his four Presidents Cup matches. After turning his attention to the European Tour, which he joined in 2015, he finished T-3rd at the UBS Hong Kong Open, then T-7th at the WGC-HSBC Championship. He lost to Sweden's Kristoffer Broberg in a playoff to finish runner-up at the BMW Masters, then had a T-10th result at the DP World Tour Championship. He finished 16th in the Race to Dubai. In his last start of the year, the Hero World Challenge, Reed finished as runner-up, three strokes behind winner Bubba Watson.

2016 Notes: Making his title defense at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Reed finished 2nd, but a distant eight strokes behind champion Jordan Spieth. Did not make a bogey until the 69th hole of the tournament, the par-5 15th.

Playing together in the last pairing, both players were tied with nine holes to play before Fowler shot a back-nine 39 to take himself out of contention. Reed reached the final hole needing just a bogey to win by a stroke over Sean O'Hair and Emiliano Grillo. The next week, he finished T-5th at the Deutsche Bank, followed by a T-13th at the BMW Championship.

Made his second Ryder Cup appearance and went 3-1-1 in his five matches to help the American team to a 17-11 victory over Europe. He and Jordan Spieth were the only Americans to play in all five matches at Hazeltine. Went head-to-head with Rory McIlroy in one of the most thrilling matches (particularly on the front nine) in Ryder Cup history, eventually making birdie at No. 18 for a 1-up victory.

Brooks Koepka Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Koepka won the U.S. Open at Erin Hills with rounds of 67-70-68-67 - 272 for his first major championship and second PGA Tour title at age 27 years, 1 month, 15 days. After a three-under-par opening nine in the final round, he three-putted the 10th hole for his fifth bogey of the week and first on the back nine. With three consecutive birdies at holes 14, 15, and 16, and two closing pars, came from one back at the start of the day to seal a comfortable four-stroke victory over Hideki Matsuyama and Brian Harman. Tied Rory McIlroy's 16-under total from 2011 for most strokes under par after 72 holes at a U.S. Open. Shared 36-hole lead at seven-under 137 with Paul Casey, Brian Harman and Tommy Fleetwood. Over the last 30 years, became the third player to win the U.S. Open with 67 or better in the final round - Hale Irwin (1990), Tiger Woods (2000). Hit 17 of 18 greens in the final round and led greens in regulation for the week with 62 of 72 (86.11%).

The next year at Shinnecock Hills, Koepka defended his title with a one-stroke victory over Tommy Fleetwood. Koepka became the first repeat winner of the U.S. Open since Curtis Strange in 1989. Moved to fourth in the Official World Golf Ranking following the win, his third in 95 starts. At the age of 28 years, 1 month, 14 days, became the youngest player to win back-to-back at the U.S. Open since Ralph Guldahl in 1938 (age 28). In addition to becoming the 22nd multiple winner of the U.S. Open, became the seventh to do so in back-to-back years. Joined Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy as current players under the age of 30 with multiple majors. Joined previous U.S. Open champions at Shinnecock Hills (James Foulis/1896), Raymond Floyd (1986), Corey Pavin (1995), Retief Goosen (2004). The victory marked his 11th consecutive top-25 finish in major championships (13 top-25s in 18 major starts). Opened with a five-over 75, becoming the first winner since Raymond Floyd (1986) to open with a 75 or higher.

One of his year's highlights was winning the PGA Championship. In the process, he became the 20th player to win the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship in his career, and he was just the fifth (Gene Sarazen/1922, Ben Hogan/1948, Jack Nicklaus/1980, Tiger Woods/2000 and Koepka/2018) to accomplish the feat in a year. Koepka also won Player of the Year honors.

With the PGA Championship moving from August to May, Koepka was ready and won his fourth major title at Bethpage State Park's Black Course. Got off on the right foot with an opening-round 63 and never looked back, becoming the first wire-to-wire winner since Hal Sutton in 1983 and the fifth overall. Koepka did achieve something no other person had ever done: win back-to-back titles at both the U.S. Open and PGA Championship. He also joined a small list of players to win multiple titles at both the PGA Championship and U.S. Open (Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Tiger Woods). Became the fourth player in the modern era to win four or more majors in a span of eight starts, joining Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.

Koepka was born in Wellington, Florida. His great uncle is Dick Groat, a two-time World Series-winning shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates and the 1960 National League Most Valuable Player. His mother, Denise Jakows was a news anchor in a West Palm Beach station from 1986 to 1999. At an early age, he had to endure some hardships. In 2011, his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy, then went through a long chemotherapy treatment. At age 10, Koepka fractured his nose and sinus cavity when his babysitter's car was hit at an intersection. That summer, he couldn't play any contact sports, so he spent most days at West Palm Beach's public Okeeheelee Golf Course. He played college golf at Florida State University, where he won three events and was a three-time All-American. He qualified for the 2012 U.S. Open as an amateur. Played in the stroke-play portion of the U.S. Amateur in 2010 and '11. Won the 2012 FAU Spring Break Invitational and the Seminole Intercollegiate. Won the 2011 Brickyard Collegiate and was named ACC Player of the Year in 2010 and '12. Earned 2012 All-American, All-Region and All-ACC Team honors and was a 2010 third-team All-American. Named All-ACC honoree in 2010 and '11 and had three runner-up finishes during his four years at FSU. Was named ACC Freshman of the Year in 2009.

After missing the cut at the 2012 U.S. Open, Koepka turned professional and began playing on the Challenge Tour in Europe. He won his first event in September at the Challenge de Catalunya. Koepka backed it up the following year when he won the 2013 Montecchia Golf Open for his second victory on the Challenge Tour. Another win followed a month later at the Fred Olsen Challenge de Espana, where he set two tournament records, a 24-under-par 260 and a winning margin of 10 strokes. Three weeks later, he earned his third win of the year at the Scottish Hydro Challenge. With three victories in one year, he earned his European Tour card for the remainder of the 2013 and 2014 seasons. One day after his third Challenge Tour win of 2013, Koepka qualified for the British Open. Koepka made his debut as a member of the European Tour (he played in three events prior to promotion) at the Scottish Open, finishing T-12th. Was able to play 10 events on the European Tour during the rest of 2013, finishing with two top-10s and placing 113th in the Race to Dubai.

2014 Notes: Koepka was given a sponsor exemption into the Frys.com Open, where he finished T-3rd. He got into the Zurich Classic through Monday qualifying and finished T-21st. That performance earned him enough FedExCup points to give him special temporary membership status on the PGA Tour, allowing him unlimited sponsor exemptions for the rest of the year. Finished T-4th at the U.S. Open, his second top-10 finish. Earned over $1 million on the PGA Tour, which along with his FedExCup points, earned him his PGA Tour card for 2015. On the European Tour, finished T-3rd at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and in Switzerland at the Omega European Masters. Played in the European Tour playoffs and won the Turkish Airlines Open. Ended the year eighth in the Race to Dubai.

2015 Notes: Opened his year with a T-8th at the Frys.com Open and T-4th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. After finishing T-19th at the Nedbank Golf Challenge the first week in December, Koepka put the clubs away for a full month and did not touch them until a week before the Waste Management Phoenix Open. At Phoenix, he found himself three shots behind Martin Laird. Koepka shot a bogey-free, five-under-par 66 in the final round, highlighted by making a 50-foot eagle putt from off the green at the par-5 15th hole to claim his first career PGA Tour win by a stroke over Bubba Watson, Ryan Palmer and Hideki Matsuyama. At the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Koepka tweaked a rib while warming up before the first round. He tried to play, but on Saturday dislocated a rib during the round. On a tee shot at the 12th hole, the pain was so unbearable that he was forced to withdraw. Was able to play at the Masters (T-33rd). After the rib injury, he finished T-3rd at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, T-10th at the British Open, T-6th at the WGC-Bridgestone, T-5th at the PGA Championship and T-6th at the Wyndham Championship. Played all four FedExCup playoffs, with his best result a T-18th at the Tour Championship. Finished 24th in the FedExCup standings and 19th on the money list. The week after the Tour Championship, he played in Scotland at the Alfred Dunhill Links, and with weekend rounds of 64-67, finished T-2nd, two strokes behind winner Thorbjorn Olesen. Ended his year 7th at the Hero World Challenge.

2016 Notes: Played in the final group with winner Jordan Spieth and finished T-3rd at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Finished T-8th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. At the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship, lost in the quarterfinals (T-5th) to the eventual winner, Jason Day, 3 & 2. Lost a playoff against Sergio Garcia. Was runner-up in his next start at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, where he finished three behind winner Daniel Berger. It was his third runner-up finish in six months. Was forced to withdraw from the WGC-Bridgestone and the British Open. Koepka said on Facebook that he tore a ligament in his right ankle after the U.S. Open and went through rehab, hoping to be fine for the PGA Championship. Despite a still-tender ankle, he posted four rounds of par or better to claim 4th place with Hideki Matsuyama and Branden Grace. In his next start, he finished T-9th at the Travelers Championship. He played 21 PGA Tour events and finished 35th in the FedExCup standings and 23rd on the money list. Making his first-ever start at the Ryder Cup, went 3-1 in his four matches in the United States' 17-11 victory at Hazeltine. His three-point total (tied with Brandt Snedeker) was second only to Patrick Reed's three-and-a-half points. Closed the week with a dominating 5 & 4 victory over reigning Masters champion Danny Willett. Ended the 2016 season with a one-stroke win over Yuta Ikeda at the Dunlop Phoenix, his sixth international victory.

2017 Notes: Played 24 PGA Tour events, making 20 cuts. Finished in the top-10 seven times and placed 10th in the FedExCup standings. After finishing T-40th at the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, China, Koepka returned home to play at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, where he finished 2nd, two strokes behind winner Rod Pampling.

Had another top-3 finish at the Valero Texas Open, finishing 2nd, one stroke behind winner Kevin Chappell. Won the U.S. Open by four strokes. A month later, he played at the British Open, and despite shooting 71 in the final round, still finished T-6th. Ended his PGA Tour season with a 6th-place finish at the Tour Championship. Posted a 2-2-0 record in his debut Presidents Cup appearance, helping lead the United States to a 19-11 victory over the International squad. Held off fan-favorite Yuta Ikeda's final-day surge to win the Dunlop Phoenix with birdies on the final two holes, closing a six-under 65 for a one-stroke victory over Ikeda.

2018 Notes: Played 17 PGA Tour events and made 15 cuts with six top-10 finishes. Ranked 9th in the FedExCup standings. Before his Dunlop win, Koepka finished T-2nd at the WGC-HSBC Champions. During his travels home from Japan and while playing two weeks later in the Bahamas at the Hero World Challenge, he played with left-wrist pain. At the Hero World Challenge, he finished in last place. The pain still lingered a month later during the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Doctors determined that he had a partially torn tendon in his left wrist and recommended eight to 12 weeks of rest and therapy. He returned 16 weeks later at the Wells Fargo, finishing T-42nd. Played the next week at The Players Championship with some lingering pain and finished T-11th. Took a week off and was 2nd at the Fort Worth Invitational, three strokes behind winner Justin Rose.

Koepka led big after every round of the PGA Championship and, in the end, won it by 2 strokes over Dustin Johnson. Was the first player in PGA Championship history to hold a lead of seven or more strokes after 36 holes (7) and the first to do so after 54 holes (7). His 36-hole score of 128 was the lowest in major championship history. At the U.S. Open in his bid to become the first player since Willie Anderson in 1903-05 to win three consecutive U.S. Opens, finished 2nd, three strokes behind Gary Woodland. Became the first player in U.S. Open history to record four scores in the 60s and not win (69-69-68-68). At the British Open, finished T-4th and became the fifth player ever to finish in the top-five at all four majors in a single year, joining Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth. The next week, he earned his first World Golf Championships victory at the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Entered the final round trailing Rory McIlroy by one stroke before firing a bogey-free 65 to win by three over Webb Simpson. Became the fifth player to win a WGC and a major in the same season, joining Tiger Woods (eight times), Geoff Ogilvy (2006), Rory McIlroy (2014) and Dustin Johnson (2016). Led going into the FedExCup playoffs but with a T-30th at the Northern Trust, T-24th at the BMW Championship and T-3rd at the Tour Championship, finished 3rd.

2020 Notes: On the Monday after the Tour Championship, August 26th, underwent stem-cell treatment to repair a partially torn patella tendon in his left knee. He stayed off his feet for three days before beginning a four-week rehab program. A week before the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, started to play golf again. Missed the cut at the Shriners and went to Korea to defend his CJ Cup title. During the wet second round, Koepka slipped on wet concrete and aggravated the left knee, and withdrew from the tournament. Went through months of painful rehab and wasn't able to play in the Presidents Cup or the Sentry Tournament of Champions. He made his return at Abu Dhabi, shooting a promising first -round 66 but followed it with rounds of 75-70-69 to finish T-34th. In his next start, he finished T-17th at Saudi International. At the Genesis Open, he finished T-43rd and in an interview with Golf Channel, said he was nowhere close to 100% and was still experiencing pain. This would become a recurring theme. Many thought the break for COVID-19 would help, and when he came back and finished T-32nd at Charles Schwab and 7th at RBC Heritage, the feeling was the oain had diminished. But after missing the cut at Workday and 3M Open, then a T-62nd at Memorial, he said before the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational that he had an MRI on the knee and would decide after the season is over if he would have surgery. He played in the PGA Championship and was in contention until he shot 74 in the final round to finish T-29th. During the second round, Koepka was seen getting worked on by a physiotherapist and downplayed the injury, and said there was nothing to worry about. After missing the cut at the Wyndham Championship, he withdrew from the FedExCup playoffs and went to San Diego, where he underwent another round of platelet-rich plasma injections in his left knee and started rehab on both his left knee and left hip.

2021 NOTES: Ten days before the CJ Cup@Shawdow Creek, he began hitting balls and traveled to Las Vegas to work with swing coach Butch Harmon. He was pleasantly surprised by not having pain or limitations. At the CJ Cup@Shawdow Creek, he finished T-28th and didn't have any pain issues. Koepka then returned to San Diego for more rehab and was hoping to play Houston to prepare for the Masters. At the Vivint Houston Open shot 65-65 over the weekend to finish T-5th, five shots back of winner Carlos Ortiz.

Matthew Wolff (bio)

Matthew Wolff Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Wolff grew up in Agoura Hills, California, started playing junior golf at the Lake Lindero Country Club's Lindero Kids Summer Sports Camp, and attended Westlake High School. At the same time, had a brief baseball career as a standout shortstop who played on a 12-and-under travel team that wound up competing for a national title in Cooperstown, New York. But Wolff felt bad any time he let his team down, which led him to pursue golf. The same athleticism that made him a stud leadoff hitter, shooting guard and quarterback allowed him to create ridiculous clubhead speed and power. Self-taught, he experienced near-immediate success at the junior level, so he didn't bother tinkering. Wolff's family didn't have the resources to join any club, so he played public courses around his home in northwest Los Angeles. While playing high school golf, he met George Gankas, who remains his swing coach. Gankas helped him but did it in a manner in which he didn't overhaul his natural swing that had proven successful.

Wolff finished runner-up at the 2017 U.S. Junior Amateur Golf Championship, losing 1-up in the 36-hole final to Noah Goodwin. Competed for the victorious U.S. side at the 2018 Palmer Cup. After initially committing to play college golf for the University of Southern California, Wolff withdrew his commitment to attend Oklahoma State.

The Australian, whose home base is in Switzerland, delivered a master class in 2008 when he blew away the field on the final day of the Commercial Qatar Masters at Doha Golf Club, shooting a course-record, 11-under-par 61. In 2004, at 23 years, 8 months and 12 days, he became the youngest winner of The Players Championship. Two years later, he won the season-ending Tour Championship.

Im became the 16th player in Korn Ferry Tour history to win on his first start. At age 19 years, 9 months, and 17 days, became the second-youngest champion in the tour's history behind Jason Day (19 years, 7 months, and 26 days). The next week continued his good play as he finished second at the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic. In the history of the Korn Ferry Tour, the second-best back-to-back rookie starts were only beaten by Ben Kohles, who won his first two Korn Ferry Tour starts in 2012. Im claimed another runner-up finish at the Knoxville Open, three strokes behind winner Stephan Jaeger, and then again at the Pinnacle Bank Championship, two strokes behind winner David Skinns. At the WinCo Food Portland Open, Im led after 54 holes and held on with a final-round 67 for his second win of the year. Went wire-to-wire as the money-list leader in the Regular Season and became the first player since 1990 to win the Tour's Regular Season's first and last event. His earnings of $534,325 were the second-highest on the Korn Ferry Tour (Michael Sim won $644,142 in 2009), and he earned a PGA Tour card for 2019. Was the Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year.

2019 Notes: Played in 35 PGA Tour events, making 26 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Placed 19th in the FedExCup standings. In his first start of the season, finished T-4th at the Safeway Open, one stroke out of the Tway/Moore/Snedeker playoff. Closed with birdies on two of his last three holes in the final round. At the Waste Management Phoenix Open, recorded four rounds in the 60s and finished T-7th. Finished T-3rd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, three strokes behind winner Francesco Molinari. As one of the top-three finishers inside the top-10 not otherwise eligible for the British Open, Im earned a spot in the field at Royal Portrush. The next week, finished T-4th at the Valspar Championship, two strokes behind winner Paul Casey. Was T-7th at the Corales Puntacana Resort Championship, and shot a final-round 64 to finish 7th at the RBC Candian. He placed T-6th at the Wyndham Championship, and in the FedExCup playoffs, he finished T-38th at the Northern Trust, T-11th at the BMW Championship, and 19th at the Tour Championship.

In the FedExCup playoffs, missed the cut at the Northern Trust, and finished T-56th at the BMW Championship and 11th at the Tour Championship.

One big disappointment for Im was the postponement of the 2020 Olympics. That's because all Korean men are required to enlist for military service by age 28 and have to serve for 21 months. But if Im plays in the Olympics next year and wins a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal, he could bypass that service, which he would like to do.

Tony Finau (bio)

Tony Finau Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Finau was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He has four brothers and two sisters. Of Tongan and American Samoan descent, Finau is the first person of such ancestry to play on the PGA Tour. Finau learned the game by smacking golf balls with his brother Gipper into a net in the family's garage, hitting not off grass but carpet remnants with used clubs their father Kelepi bought from the local Salvation Army, a 6-iron for 75 cents, a putter for $1 and a little red bag for 50 cents.

Tony was a two-time medalist in the Utah State High School Championship and a 2006 state championship team member. He was also a first-team All-State selection four times and won the Junior World Golf Championship at Torrey Pines in 2002.

Finau also played center in basketball and helped his team reach the state tournament in his junior and senior seasons, averaging 11 rebounds per game as a senior. He chose to concentrate on golf instead. His sister, Kaylene, played on the College of Southern Idaho's 2006 championship volleyball team in the National Junior College Athletic Association.

His brother, Gipper, is the youngest player to make a Korn Ferry Tour cut, doing so at age 16 years, 20 days in Utah in 2006 (T-58th). His cousin, Jabari Parker, plays for the NBA's Washington Wizards.

Finau won the Utah State Amateur Championship in 2006, defeating future PGA Tour player Daniel Summerhays in the 36-hole championship match. He was named the 2007 Athlete of the Year at West High School, the same high school as 1926 U.S. Amateur champion and five-time PGA Tour winner George Von Elm. Finau turned professional out of high school at age 17 in 2007, turning down college scholarship offers to play basketball because he wanted to play in a TV event called the "Ultimate Game," which was open to professionals who couldn't be on the Korn Ferry Tour or PGA Tour at the time. He and his brother got sponsors to back them, and they played in the event as a field of 40 battled for the $2-million first-place purse. Finau showed up with a bag of clubs that some said was more outrageous than Al Czervik's bag in "Caddyshack" because it contained a driver, 12 irons, and a putter. Tony Finau didn't win, but Lee Trevino, who was doing TV commentary for the event, took a liking to him and talked Callaway into signing him. Finau, though, wasn't finished with golf reality-TV shows. In 2008, he finished second on Golf Channel's "Big Break Disney."

He also began playing on mini-tours, including the Gateway Tour, NGA Hooters Tour and National Pro Tour. At age 17, he played in his first Korn Ferry Tour event, missing the cut at the 2007 Utah EnergySolutions Championship. In the same year, he played and missed the cut at the KLM Open and Scandinavian Masters, both on the European Tour. At age 18, he missed the cut at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee during his first PGA Tour event.

2013 Notes: He played on the PGA Tour Canada, making seven cuts in eight starts. His best finish was T-5th at the ATB Financial Classic. At the end of the year, he went to the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament and secured his card with six rounds in the 60s and a T-3rd finish.

2014 Notes: Finau enjoyed a successful year on the Korn Ferry Tour, finishing eighth on the money list and 12th in the Tour finals, which earned him a card on the PGA Tour.

2014 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 23; Rounds Played - 82; In Money - 19; Top-10 Finishes - 5; Scoring Average - 69.43 (rank 9th); Money - $254,315 (rank 8th); Best Finish - 1st, Stonebrae Classic.

Louis Oosthuizen Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Oosthuizen secured his place in golf's history books with a victory at the 2010 British Open at St. Andrews. His seven-stroke win placed him alongside South Africans Bobby Locke, Gary Player and Ernie Els as Open champions.It was his ninth appearance in a major championship, and his success came only four months after his European Tour breakthrough, a victory at the Open de Andalucia de Golf. Born in the town of Mossel Bay, a small community about 34 miles east of Cape Town, Oosthuizen comes from a farming family. His father and brother were great tennis players, but he opted to play golf. He grew up alongside Charl Schwartzel, and the two won the World Junior team championship in 2000. At age 17 in 1999, Oosthuizen got a big break when he was given one of the first memberships in the Ernie Els and Fancourt Foundation. Its purpose was to identify talented young South African players and give them the resources to improve in golf and provide educational and life-skills assistance. At this stage of his life, things were costly, and he doubted his father would have been able to absorb the costs if he was not a part of the foundation. The financial concerns were eliminated, and Els attended some of the clinics, spending time with the boys and becoming a mentor for both. Oosthuizen turned professional in 2002 and played on the South African Tour, then joined the European Tour in 2004. He won for the first time in South Africa at the 2004 Vodacom Origins of Golf Tour, then the 2007 Dimension Data and the Telkom PGA Championship. Oosthuizen didn't make substantial progress on the European Tour until 2009, when he had runner-up finishes at Abu Dhabi and the Qatar Masters. He reached the winner's circle in March 2010 when he captured the Open de Andalucia. That win, along with a runner-up finish the week before in Morocco, put him in the top-50 of the Official World Golf Ranking the closing week to reach the Masters. He held onto a spot in the top-50 to play at both the U.S. Open and British Open. Played in 2013, '15, '17 and '19 Presidents Cup matches.

2011 Notes: In his first full season on the PGA Tour, he made 10 of 15 cuts with two top-10 finishes. Ranked 148th in the FedExCup standings.

2012 Notes: Narrowly missed winning his second major championship, falling in the Masters to Bubba Watson in a playoff. Finished 3rd at the Shell Houston Open, 4th at WGC-Bridgestone and 2nd at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Ended the year 7th in FedExCup standings and 15th on the money list. On the European Tour, he won twice, at the Africa Open and Maybank Malaysian Open. Finished 3rd in the Race to Dubai.

2013 Notes: Won on the European Tour at the Volvo Golf Champions. Had a nice showing at the Ballantine's Championship in April, with four under-par rounds to finish 5th, two strokes out of the Brett Rumford/Marcus Fraser/Peter Whiteford playoff. His year was plagued with a lingering neck, back and hip injury that started around the Byron Nelson. He was forced to withdraw from the Nelson, U.S. Open and British Open before taking two months off in the summer. Around Thanksgiving, he started taking injections in his vertebra joints, which appeared to cure him. He made his first International team at the Presidents Cup and managed a 1-3-1 record in five matches.

2014 Notes: Started the year with a win at the Volvo Golf Champions and then took six weeks off. Returned to play at the Northern Trust, but the next week, his back pain resurfaced in his quarterfinal match at the WGC-Accenture Match Play.

Missed the cut at The Barclays to end his season 124th in the FedExCup standings and 101st on the money list.

Finished T-2nd at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, marking his fourth top-10 finish in a major. Made a second-nine charge Sunday, carding a 29 (equaling the lowest nine-hole score in U.S. Open history) that included five consecutive birdies (Nos. 12-16) and six over the final seven holes (No. 18). Opened the week with a seven-over 77, placing him 12 strokes behind the first-round leaders. His 199 total over the final 54 holes is the lowest total in U.S. Open history, topping the previous mark held by Kevin Chappell by three shots. Four weeks later, he again came close in a major, finishing T-2nd at the British Open. Played steady all week and finished with a 69 to get into a playoff with Marc Leishman and Zach Johnson. Shot even par over the four playoff holes, but that was one stroke behind Zach Johnson's 1-under total. Finished the PGA Tour season 30th in the FedExCup standings and 22nd on the money list.

Matthew Fitzpatrick Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Fitzpatrick won the 2013 U.S. Amateur, becoming the first Englishman to win the title since 1911. En route to victory, he defeated four Americans in early rounds, Canadian Amateur runner-up Corey Conners in his semifinal match, and Australian Oliver Goss, 4 & 3, in the final. A month earlier, he played in the British Open at Muirfield, finishing T-44th with a 10-over-par 294 (73-76-73-72) to earn the silver medal as the low amateur.

After his U.S. Amateur victory at Brookline, he became the No. 1 player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, receiving the Mark H. McCormack Medal for the accomplishment and represented Great Britain and Ireland in the 2013 Walker Cup Match.

The 2012 British Boys' champion qualified for the 2012 British Open but had to withdraw due to a ligament injury. As an 11-year-old spectator at Hoylake in 2006, he watched Tiger Woods successfully defend his Claret Jug.

Fitzpatrick attended Northwestern University in Chicago, the same college attended by Luke Donald and David Lipsky. Despite staying just one semester before turning professional, Fitzpatrick played five collegiate events, winning once and finishing in the top five in three others.

On Jan. 1, 2014, he informed head coach Pat Goss he was leaving Northwestern to pursue a full-time amateur career. He missed the cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Masters, finished T-23rd at the RBC Heritage and T-48th at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst to earn low-amateur honors, becoming the first golfer since Bobby Jones in 1930 to be the reigning low amateur of golf's two oldest open championships. He then turned professional, competed in nine European Challenge Tour events, and finished 48th on that tour's Road to Oman list. He posted three top-10s, including a T-6th at the Foshan Open. Made it through European Tour Q-School at the end of 2014, taking the 11th card at PGA Catalunya Resort.

2015 Notes: Fitzpatrick finished T-5th in his first European event of the season at the South African Open but struggled in his next seven events before finishing T-15th at the Tshwane Open. Earned his second career top-10 with a T-8th at the Irish Open, then added another with a T-3rd at the Lyoness Open. Six weeks later, in Switzerland, he finished as runner-up at the European Masters, one stroke behind winner Danny Willett. Came close to becoming the first European Tour player to card a 59 three weeks later when he shot 60 with pars on his last two holes at the KLM Open. Broke through in a big way at the British Masters at Woburn GC in England in October, taking the first-round lead with a 64 and did not let up in a wire-to-wire victory. Played the tournament through a sponsor's invitation and celebrated the victory with his parents, who watched every round. At age 21 years, 1 month, 9 days, he became the youngest European Tour winner since Matteo Manassero at the BMW PGA Championship (three days older). Finished the year with a T-3rd at the UBS Hong Kong Open, T-7th at the WGC-HSBC Champions, and T-4th at the DP World Tour Championship, finishing 12th in the Race to Dubai.

2016 Notes: After a slow start to his year, Fitzpatrick got things rolling with a T-7th at the Masters. Fired a final-round 67 to finish five shots behind Danny Willett, but the finish assured him a return to the 2017 Masters. In June, he returned to the winner's circle with a three-shot win at the Nordea Masters. Finished T-9th at the Aberdeen Asset Management Paul Lawrie Match Play, and then 5th at the D+D Real Czech Masters. Was T-7th at the European Masters, and at the final event of the year, the DP World Tour Dubai, he made a four-foot birdie putt at the final hole for a one-stroke win over Tyrrell Hatton. At age 22 years and 80 days old, he became the youngest Englishman to win his first three European Tour titles, surpassing the previous record of Nick Faldo, who was 22 years and 300 days, when he won his third European Tour event, the 1980 Sun Alliance PGA Championship. With the win, Fitzpatrick finished the year 6th in the Race to Dubai. He made his first-ever start at the 2016 Ryder Cup, going 0-2 in the European team's 17-11 loss to the United States at Hazeltine.

2017 Notes: Finished T-5th at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, then T-2nd at the Nordea Masters, one stroke behind winner Renato Paratore. Claimed his fourth European Tour victory at 23 years and 9 days with his win at the Omega European Masters, where he defeated Scott Hend in a playoff.

Paul Casey Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Casey grew up playing both tennis and golf at the Foxhills Golf Club near London, and secured his card as an affiliate member of the European Tour in 2001, shortly before winning his maiden title at the Gleneagles Scottish PGA Championship. Finishing 22nd on the Order of Merit helped him win the 2001 Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award. Coached by Peter Kostis, Casey's amateur highlight came when he proved to be one of the stalwarts of Great Britain's and Ireland's Walker Cup victory at Nairn in 1999, becoming one of only three players in 77 years to record four victories without a defeat.

Casey won the English Amateur Championship in 1999 and 2000. While at Arizona State University, he won the Pac-10 Championship in 1998, '99, and 2000, the first player to win three consecutive years. His 23-under-par 265 winning score at the 2000 Pac-10 Championship broke the scoring record held by Tiger Woods (18 under par). He also broke the record for scoring average at Arizona State, previously held by Phil Mickelson. Played on 2004, '06, and '08 European Ryder Cup Teams. Won the 2009 Shell Houston Open, which vaulted him to sixth place in the Official World Golf Ranking. Owns 13 European Tour victories, most recently the 2014 KLM Open.

May 2009: Won the BMW PGA Championship, England's premier event, to go along with victories at the Shell Houston Open and the Abu Dhabi Championship. Finished third in the world ranking.

July 2009: After celebrating his peaking game, he missed the cut at the U.S. Open and the British Open and, while at Turnberry, strained an intercostal muscle. Forced to withdraw from the WGC-Bridgestone, the PGA Championship and the WGC-HSBC Champions.

February 2010: After his ribs healed, Casey got his game back on track but lost in the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play. Finished T-4th at the Honda Classic and T-6th at the WGC-CA Championship. Unfortunately, while defending his Shell Houston Open title, he injured his left shoulder, hindering his play for three more months.

July 2010: Finished T-3rd at the British Open despite a final-round 75. His game continued to improve as he posted a runner-up result at the BMW Championship. Also finished T-4th at the Tour Championship, T-6th at the WGC-HSBC Champions, T-6th at the Dubai World and 3rd at the Chevron World Challenge.

January 2011: In his second start of the year, Casey won the Volvo Golf Champions in South Africa. Finished T-12th at the Northern Trust and lost the next week in the second round of the Accenture Match Play. After that, he injured his right toe, and the pain grew over the next couple of months. By the British Open, the pain was so intense he had trouble transitioning on his right foot. The injury was diagnosed as turf toe and was treated with anti-inflammatories and ice.

October 2011: After taking six weeks off, he won the Shinhan Donghae Open. That started a streak in which Casey posted four top-seven finishes in six starts. Ended the year ranked T-16th at the Dubai World Championship.

Christmas Eve, 2011: Off to Colorado for some snowboarding, Casey slipped on the first day and fell, dislocating his right shoulder. He avoided surgery, took three months off, and attempted to come back at the WGC-Cadillac in March. The shoulder, though, hadn't enough time to heal. Between the Cadillac and the Alfred Dunhill Links in October, he played 18 events but made only four cuts, the best result a T-25th at the Ballantine's Tournament. Ended the year 122nd in the world ranking with a game that was once again starting to come around.

December 2012: Finished T-5th at the Handa Perth International, T-6th at the BMW Masters, T-10th at the Barclays Singapore Open and T-19th at the USB Hong Kong Open.

July 2013: With his shoulder healthy again, Casey finished T-8th at the Volvo China Open in April, his only top-10 of the year. After finishing T-53rd at the BMW International, he dropped to 165th in the world ranking. Ended the PGA Tour year ranked 197th in the FedExCup standings and 193rd on the money list. On the European Tour, he finished 30th in the Race to Dubai.

January 2014: Finished T-9th at the Dubai Desert Classic, but that was his last top-10 until he won the KLM Open in September. He had nine top-25 finishes on the PGA Tour for the year, which got him into the FedExCup playoffs for the first time since 2010. Finished T-22nd at The Barclays but didn't compete at the Deutsche Bank because his fiancee was close to going into labor with their first child in London. Finished the year 95th in the FedExCup standings and 108th on the money list. Was 61st in the Race to Dubai.

February 2015: Casey played at the CIMB Classic on the first of November and took two months off. He returned to the Sony Open in Hawaii, finishing T-30th. He missed his next two starts before finally finding success on the PGA Tour, reaching a playoff at the Northern Trust Open. He was eliminated on the first playoff hole but had an extra dose of adrenaline, leaving Los Angeles knowing his game was back and that he was healthy and happy again. The next week at the Honda, he began the final round's second nine with a lead but shot two-over-par and finished T-3rd, one stroke out of a playoff. The good news: He climbed to 45th in the world ranking, earning a spot at the WGC-Cadillac. Struggles at Doral resulted in a T-38th finish, and he missed the cut at the Arnold Palmer to fall to 49th in the rankings. He didn't play at the Valero Texas Open, and nobody passed him as he climbed to 48th in the ranking, earning his invitation to play in the Masters. Fired three rounds in the 60s at Augusta National, finishing T-6th, the second time he has done so (also in 2004). At his next start at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, Casey reached a semifinal match with Rory McIlroy. After 21 holes, though, it was too dark to play, and they had to come back the next morning. Casey fell ill overnight and ultimately lost to McIlroy. During the week of the Masters in 2014, Casey was 100th in the world ranking. Fourteen months later, after the 2015 Memorial, was 36th.

June 2015: The week after finishing T-39th at the U.S. Open, Casey began the final round of the Travelers Championship three shots off the lead. Shot a final-round 65 to force a playoff with 2010 Travelers champion Bubba Watson. When Casey's errant, greenside bunker shot at the second extra hole flew over the green, Watson won with a birdie. It marked Casey's second playoff loss during the season (other was at the Northern Trust Open).

September 2015: After finishing T-3rd at the Wyndham Championship, just two strokes behind winner Davis Love III, Casey played all four FedExCup playoff events, finishing the Tour Championship T-5th. Ended the year 13th in the FedExCup standings and 21st on the money list. He gave up his European Tour card, so he wasn't eligible for the Ryder Cup in September.

2016 Notes: First top-10 of the year was 7th at the WGC-Cadillac, then finished T-9th at the Arnold Palmer and T-4th at the Masters, at the time his best finish in a major championship. Didn't earn another top-10 until he was runner-up in back-to-back weeks at the Deutsche Bank Championship and BMW Championship. Finished his year 4th at the Tour Championship. In 22 starts, he ranked 5th in the FedExCup standings and 14th on the money list.

Was 11th in the FedExCup standings. At the end of October, he announced that he rejoined the European Tour with the hope of making the Ryder Cup team.

2018 Notes: Played 20 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts, and was in the top-10 five times. Ended the year 25th in the FedExCup standings. On the European Tour, he played 11 events, making 11 cuts. He finished 45th in the Race to Dubai. Started the year with a T-7th at the CIMB Classic. Posted his second top-10 with a T-9th at the Abu Dhabi Championship. The next week was T-8th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. At the Valspar Championship, shot a final-round 65, good enough for a one-stroke win over Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed. Finished T-5th at the Wells Fargo Championship. The next week, he withdrew from the Players Championship, citing a back injury. At the time, he indicated on his Instagram page that he got sacroiliitis (inflammation of the SI joint) with a sprain of the ligament. Also, muscle spasms and leg pain, possibly due to the sciatic nerve getting trapped. After a couple of weeks of rest in Arizona, he flew to London and finished T-20th at the BMW PGA Championship. Finished T-16th at the U.S. Open, and the next week, T-2nd at the Travelers Championship, losing by three strokes to Bubba Watson, who fired a final-round 63. Shot a final-round 73 to drop into a T-7th finish at the Porsche European Open, three strokes behind winner Richard McEvoy.

Kevin Kisner Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Kisner played golf at the University of Georgia and was a member of its 2005 NCAA Division I Championship team, along with Chris Kirk, Richard Scott and Brendon Todd. Became the first player in the university's history to be named All-American four times. After graduating in 2006, he turned professional and played on the mini-tours (NGA Hooters Tour and Tarheel Tour) from 2007 to 2009, winning three times. In 2009, through sponsor exemptions, top-25 finishes and open qualifying, he played in six Korn Ferry Tour events, with his best finish a T-15th at The Athens Regional. At the end of the year, he went to PGA Tour Q-School and missed earning his card by one stroke when he finished T-26th. That result qualified him instead of the Korn Ferry Tour.

2010 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 26; Cuts Made - 16; Top-10 Finishes - 6; Scoring Average - 70.00 (rank 27th); Money - $279,292 (rank 11th); Best Finish - 1st, Mylan Classic.

2011 Notes: Played 24 events but failed to earn enough money on the PGA Tour to retain his card (181st on the money list). Finished T-11th at Q-School to earn his card for 2012. His best finish and only top-25 for the year was a T-12th at the Children's Miracle Network Classic.

2012 Notes: Again, he failed to retain his card, finishing 167th on the money list, and missed earning a card in Q-School by a stroke. Had one top-10 finish, a T-10th at the RBC Canadian Open.

2013 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 22; In Money - 11; Top-10 Finishes - 3; Scoring Average - 70.28 (rank 33rd); Money - $238,491 (rank 14th); Best Finish - Win, Chile Classic. Finished the regular season 13th in earnings to secure his 2014 PGA Tour card.

2014 Notes: In May, he played the Wells Fargo Championship just a couple of hours north of his hometown, Aiken, S.C. He carded rounds of 72-66-68-73 to finish a career-best T-6th, five strokes behind champion J.B. Holmes. It was his second top-10 in 64 PGA Tour starts, the other being a T-10th at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. Added two more top-10s with a T-9th at the RBC Canadian Open and T-8th at the Wyndham Championship. He reached the FedExCup playoffs for the first time but was eliminated when he missed the cut at The Barclays, ending the year 104th in the FedExCup standings and 100th on the money list.

2015 Notes: Earned a T-4th at the McGladrey Classic. He struggled in his next 11 events before tying Jim Furyk after 72 holes at the RBC Heritage, but lost to the veteran in a playoff. Three weeks later, Kisner again found himself tied for the lead at The Players Championship with Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia before losing to Fowler on the fourth playoff hole. Kisner's solid play continued with a T-5th finish at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and T-8th at The Memorial. At the Greenbrier Classic, he posted a final-round 64 to reach his third playoff since April. Danny Lee won the playoff at the second hole. Kisner is the first to lose three playoffs in a season since Horton Smith in 1937. The finish in West Virginia still marked his sixth top-10 of the season and fifth in his previous eight starts. With the finish at White Sulphur Springs, he moved to 36th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Fifteen months before the 2014 RBC Heritage, he was 399th in the World Ranking. Played in all four FedExCup playoff events, with a best finish of T-12th at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Finished 21st in the final FedExCup rankings and 20th on the money list.

2016 Notes: Despite injuring his back the Sunday before the WGC-HSBC Championship and not playing any practice rounds, Kisner finished 2nd, two strokes behind winner Russell Knox. It was his fourth runner-up finish since April 2015 (29 weeks). In his next start at the RSM Classic, he shot rounds of 65-67-64-64 for a six-stroke win and his first PGA Tour victory. The win made him the 11th former Georgia Bulldog to win on the PGA Tour, joining Chip Beck, Harris English, Brian Harman, Russell Henley, Ryuji Imada, Chris Kirk, Billy Kratzert, Tim Simpson, Brendon Todd and Bubba Watson. During the PGA Tour's Hawaiian swing, he finished 9th at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and T-5th at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Also had T-10th results at the Dean & DeLuca and the Wyndham Championship. In 27 starts for the year, Kisner reached the top-10 six times and made 22 cuts, finishing 23rd in the FedExCup playoffs and 20th on the money list.

2017 Notes: In his fourth start of the season at the Sony Open in Hawaii, Kisner made the cut right at three-under. In the third round, he shot 60, missing a 10-foot eagle putt on his last hole. With a final-round 65, he finished T-4th. He also had a T-10th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. At the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he co-led with Charley Hoffman after three rounds. Shot a final-round 73 to finish T-2nd, one stroke behind winner Marc Leishman. While paired with fellow Aiken, S.C. resident Scott Brown in the new two-man team Foursomes/Four-Ball format at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Kisner fell to 0-4 in PGA Tour playoffs when he lost to Jonas Blixt/Cameron Smith on the fourth hole of sudden death. Both teams finished at 27-under 261. The duo shot 70-64-67-60 and chipped in for eagle from 95 feet as darkness fell at the final hole of regulation to force the playoff. Storms caused a six-hour suspension of play on Sunday, disrupting a final-round 12-under 60, which was tied for the lowest round of the week. That round began with eight consecutive birdies in the Four-Ball format to erase the four-stroke deficit they started with on Sunday. Both teams made par at the first three playoff holes (18,18,9) before Smith pitched from 60 yards to within three feet of the hole at 18 and converted the birdie putt for victory.

The following month, Kisner shot a final-round 70 to win the Dean & DeLuca by one shot, his second PGA Tour win. The next week, he finished T-6th at The Memorial and was T-7th at the PGA Championship. He played in all four FedExCup playoff events for the third consecutive year and finished 12th in the FedExCup standings.

Lost his opening match to Ian Poulter (2-up), becoming the first player to lose his opening match and win the title.

Cameron Smith (bio)

Cameron Smith Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Smith's father, Des, a well-known club baseballer before becoming a scratch golfer, got Smith started in the game at age 3, taking him to Wantima Golf Course just outside of Brisbane, Australia. Smith was playing six-hole competitions as a 5-year-old with cut-down clubs, and by age 10, had a single-digit handicap. His amateur wins included the 2013 Australian Amateur Championship, 2012 Australian Junior Championship, 2012 Australian Stroke Play Championship and 2011 Nomura Cup individual title. He also represented Australia at the 2012 Eisenhower Trophy.

Played in two events on the Web.com Tour in 2013: Missed the cut at the Mylan Classic and T-61st at Price Cutter Charity.

Finished 5th on the 2014 Asian Tour Order of Merit as a rookie. Had seven top-10s in nine starts. Finished T-5th in his debut on the PGA Tour at the 2014 CIMB Classic, five strokes behind champion Ryan Moore. Smith is the first player to finish in the top-10 of a PGA Tour event in his debut since Chris Wood's T-5th at the 2008 British Open. In fact, other than Smith and Wood, only Anthony Kim (T-2nd at the 2006 Valero Texas Open) and Andres Romero (T-8th at 2006 British Open) have picked up top-10 finishes in their Tour debuts since 2000. Like Russell Henley, who won the 2013 Sony Open in his first professional start on the PGA Tour, others had competed previously in Tour events as amateurs.

2015 Notes: When Smith finished T-5th at the CIMB Classic, he earned an exemption into the next PGA Tour event. So at the last minute, it was off on a 25-hour trek to Mississippi, where he missed the cut. After that, he received other invitations to play on the PGA Tour through sponsor exemptions.

Smith experienced another magical moment at the U.S. Open. After missing the cut at The Memorial, he played in the U.S. Open qualifying at Brookside and the Lakes, where he shot 69-67 to earn a spot in the field. At the U.S. Open, he posted a pair of 70s, then a third-round 69. In the final round, he shot even par on the first nine and was one over par through 15, but birdied 16 and eagled 18 to shoot 68 and finish T-4th. The importance of his eagle at the last hole meant he would play at the Masters in 2016. With the good finish at the U.S. Open, he was able to climb to 89th in the Official World Golf Ranking, which secured a spot at the PGA Championship. With the finish, Smith also picked up non-member FedExCup points. He was at 362 points, which placed him about 10 positions away from possibly getting a crack at a full PGA Tour card for 2016. Smith finished T-25th at the PGA Championship and T-18th at the Wyndham, just enough to put him into the top 125 of the FedExCup points list as a non-member, so he earned his PGA Tour membership for 2016. Ended his year with a T-36th at the UNIQLO Masters, T-13th at the Emirates Australian Open, and 5th at the Australian PGA Championship.

2016 Notes: Made 13 cuts in 24 PGA Tour starts. Best finish was T-11th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He ranked 157th in both the FedExCup standings and money list. Because he lost his PGA Tour card, he went to the Web.com Tour finals. After a T-28th at the DAP Championship and missed cut at the Albertsons Boise Open, he made his third career Web.com Tour start at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, where he moved into the final-round lead with birdies at three of his first four holes on the back nine. Bogeyed the par-4 15th to eventually finish runner-up, one stroke behind winner Grayson Murray. Secured a return to the PGA Tour for the 2016-17 season by finishing 7th in the final priority-ranking order.

2017 Notes: Got off to a good start in the new year, finishing T-11th at the Sanderson Farms Championship and T-10th at the Shriners Hospitals Open. At the end of the year, he returned to Australia, where he finished T-2nd at the Australian Open and T-15th at the Australian PGA Championship. After that, his best finish was a T-6th at the Valero Texas Open. Won his first PGA Tour event with a birdie at the fourth hole of a sudden-death playoff at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with teammate Jonas Blixt, defeating the team of Kevin Kisner/Scott Brown. The duo shot 67-62-68-64 and went bogey-free for all 76 holes played (including the playoff), earning 400 FedExCup points and $1,022,400 each. At 23 years, 8 months, 13 days, Smith became the fourth-youngest Australian to win on Tour (three players) behind Jason Day (22) and Adam Scott (23/twice). Finished T-7th at the Wyndham Championship and played in the first three FedExCup events. Earned a T-12th result at the BMW Championship, but it wasn't enough for him to get into the top-30. He finished 46th in the FedExCup standings.

2018 Notes: Played 24 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Was 12th in the FedExCup standings. Again got off to a great start, finishing T-5th at the CIMB Classic and 3rd at the CJ Cup@Nine Bridges, just a stroke out of the Thomas/Leishman playoff. Finished 4th at the Emirates Australian Open and won the Australian PGA Championship, defeating Jordan Zunic on the second hole of a playoff. Finished T-6th at the Genesis Open and lost to Alex Noren, 4 & 2, in the quarterfinals of the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship. Finished T-5th at the Masters, six shots behind Reed. Entered the FedExCup playoffs at 53rd in the standings before finishing T-3rd at the Northern Trust and 3rd at the WGC-Dell Technologies Championship, three strokes behind winner Bryson DeChambeau. Reached the Tour Championship for the first time, finishing 20th.

2019 Notes: Played in 23 PGA Tour events, making 17 cuts with three top-10 finishes. Ranked 84th in the FedExCup standings. Was T-7th at the CJ Cup@Nine Bridges, then T-10th at the Emirates Australian Open. For the second consecutive year, won the Australian PGA Championship, two strokes better than Marc Leishman. Was T-9th at the Farmers Insurance Open and T-6th at the WGC-Mexico Championship. In the FedExCup playoffs, finished T-59th at the Northern Trust. Ended his year with a T-27th at the Emirates Australian Open and T-10th at the Australian PGA Championship. In his first Presidents Cup, played in three matches, was 1-1-1, defeating Justin Thomas 2 & 1 in singles.

2020 Notes: Played in 19 PGA Tour events, making 13 cuts with two top-10 finishes. Ranked 24th in the FedExCup standings. Was T-3rd at the CJ Cup@Nine Bridges. Won the Sony Open in Hawai, defeating Brendan Steele in a playoff. Struggled when he returned after the COVID-19 break.

Scottie Scheffler Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Scheffler's journey began in Ridgewood, N.J., where he was born. His parents, Scott and Diane, moved the family to Dallas when he was 7 years old. Along with his three brothers and sisters, they played golf at Highland Park. Through the years, family vacations were forsaken to trek by station wagon to junior tournaments around the country. Most of them were Scottie's events, but all four kids once played in a tournament in Greenville, Miss., where then-6-year-old Sara recorded the family's first (and still its only) double eagle.

Scheffler's decorated junior career included a victory at the 2013 U.S. Junior Amateur at Martis Camp Club in Truckee, California, defeating Davis Riley 3 & 2 in the final. A month later, he became only the second reigning U.S. Junior winner since 1986 to reach the quarterfinals of the Amateur at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass. He was defeated by Brady Watt, 1-up.

After signing his National Letter of Intent to play at Texas, Golfweek ranked him as the No. 1 junior player in its Class of 2014, the same spot he would find himself in the AJGA Polo Golf Rankings at the end of his junior career. Scott was a member of the 2016 USA World Amateur Team. Recipient of the 2015 Phil Mickelson Award for being the nation's best freshman golfer. Also named 2015 Big 12 Newcomer of the Year. Scottie was also part of the US Team that won the 2017 Walker Cup.

At 17 years old, Scottie played in his first PGA Tour event and finished T-22nd.

After graduating from Texas in 2018, he received two PGA Tour exemptions after turning professional but earned his way onto the Korn Ferry Tour via Q-School in December of 2018, finishing T-34th, so he will be playing full time on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019.

2019 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 20; In Money - 16; Top-10 Finishes - 10; Scoring Average - 69.28 (rank 1st); Regular Season Money - $565,338 (rank 1st); Winner, Evans Scholars Invitational, Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. Also finished 2nd at the Savannah Golf Championship and Nashville Golf Open, where he lost in a playoff. On the Korn Ferry Tour, his playoff record was 1-1.

2020 Notes: Played in 23 PGA Tour events in his rookie season, making 18 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Was 5th in the FedExCup standings.

Shane Lowry (bio)

Shane Lowry Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Lowry was born in Clara, County Offaly, the son of 1982 All-Ireland winning footballer Brendan Lowry. He learned his early golf at Esker Hills Golf Club, where he began his amateur career. He attended Athlone Institute of Technology as a scholarship student on the Higher Certificate in Sport and Recreation. In July 2019, he achieved the ultimate dream of any golfing Irishman by winning the British Open.

To make the vision more grand, he won it on Irish soil at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland, the first time the championship was held outside of England and Scotland since 1951. He joined Padraig Harrington as only the second major champion from the Republic of Ireland.

Lowry was the 2007 Irish Amateur Close Champion, defeating Niall Turner, 4 & 3, in the final. While still an amateur in May 2009, he won The Irish Open on the European Tour, defeating Robert Rock on the third hole of a sudden-death playoff. The win, in his tour debut, made him just the third amateur to win on the European Tour, following Danny Lee earlier in the 2009 season, and Pablo Martin in 2007. Lowry shot a 62 to equal the lowest-ever score by an amateur on the circuit and led from the second round onward. Walker Cup Captain Colin Dalgleish described the win as "fairytale stuff," adding, "You'd have to say that Shane's victory was the biggest (of the three amateur wins). To win your own national Open is quite something. It was unbelievable, it really was." The win was all the more remarkable because it was only the second home win since 1982 and the first since Padraig Harrington in 2007. Harrington himself was also full of praise: "It's fabulous for Irish golf. You only have to look at the fact it is such a rarity for an amateur to win, such a rarity for an Irish player to win the Irish Open."

Lowry elected to turn professional the week after his Irish Open triumph, meaning he would miss the opportunity to play at the Walker Cup in September. He made his professional debut in May at the European Open, missing the cut. Also missed the cut in his next two starts, finally cashing his first check when he finished 50th at the Open de France ALSTOM. He had his best professional result in November 2009, when he finished 3rd at the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament in Japan. In January 2010, he finished 4th at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, moving him into the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking.

In June 2010, Lowry qualified for his first major championship, the 2010 British Open at St. Andrews. During qualifying, he matched Nick Faldo's course record at Sunningdale when he posted a 62. Lowry made the cut at St. Andrews and eventually finished T-37th. He won for the first time as a professional at the 2012 Portugal Masters, where he shot a final-round 66 and won when Englishman Ross Fisher, bogeyed the final hole after missing a 4-foot putt. The victory elevated Lowry to 74th in the Official World Golf Rankings, the first time in his career he got into the top-100.

2009 Notes: Played in 19 European Tour events (18 as a professional), making nine cuts with just one top-10, his win as an amateur at the Irish Open. His next best finish was T-15th at the KLM Open.

Lowry drained the putt for birdie to seal the win. Earned his first career PGA Tour victory in his 28th start at age 28 years, 4 months and 7 days, earning a three-year exemption on the PGA Tour through the 2017-18 season.

Justin Rose Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Rose's breakthrough in majors occurred at the 2013 U.S. Open, where he fulfilled the potential he had shown as a 17-year-old amateur in finishing 4th at the 1998 British Open. He won by two shots at Merion Golf Club, holding off Phil Mickelson in the process, and jumped to a career-best 3rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Rose was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and moved to England when he was 5 years old. He began playing golf seriously at Tylney Park GC, near his Hampshire home. Rose broke 70 for the first time at age 11 and was a plus-3 handicap by age 14. He played at the Walker Cup in 1997 for GB&I at age 17 years and 10 days. His brother, Brandon, is a former professional in South Africa. Rose was coached by his father, Ken, who died of leukemia in 2002. Rose always will be remembered for holing a dramatic 50-yard shot from the rough for birdie on his final hole at the 1998 British Open to finish T-4th as an amateur. He turned professional the next day. Won four times internationally in 2002. Has competed on the PGA Tour since 2004, but didn't win his first two tournaments until 2010.

His finest moment of the year came at the Ryder Cup, where he secured a vital point against Phil Mickelson in the Sunday singles, as Europe made a dramatic comeback. Confidently holed an eight-foot putt at 16 to halve the hole, then made a snaking 35-footer at 17 en route to a memorable victory. Also defeated Mickelson in the singles in 2008 in his Ryder Cup debut at Valhalla. Played in foursomes and four-ball alongside good friend Ian Poulter, with whom he also teamed at the 2011 Mission Hills World Cup, where they finished runners-up.

Missed the cut at the U.S. Open, finished T-46th at the WGC Bridgestone and T-22nd at the British Open. Represented Great Britain at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Birdied the final hole of the competition to shoot 16-under 268 and win the gold medal by two strokes over Sweden's Henrik Stenson.

Failed to reach the Tour Championship for just the third time in the last 10 years, ending his season after the third FedExCup Playoffs event at 51st in the standings and 44th on the money list. Making his fourth start at the Ryder Cup, went 2-3 in his five matches in the European team's 17-11 defeat to the United States at Hazeltine. His herniated disc caused him discomfort all summer long, so he took eight weeks off for rest and recovery.

Matt Kuchar Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Kuchar began playing golf at age 12 when his mother, Meg, upgraded the family?s country club membership to include golf. Matt and his father, Peter, tried golf and were hooked. Matt won the 1997 U.S. Amateur, defeating Joel Kribel, 2 & 1, and received exemptions to the 1998 Masters and U.S. Open. He made the cut and finished as low amateur in both. He qualified for return trips to both majors in 1999, with a T-21st finish at the Masters and a T-14th at the U.S. Open.

Kuchar won the 1998 Fred Haskins Award as the outstanding college golfer and was a first-team All-American. His Georgia Tech team finished 3rd in the 1998 NCAA Championships. He made it to the PGA Tour full-time in 2002 and won the Honda Classic that year, but lost his exemption after 2005. He regained it in 2007 and bounced back.

In 2010, he won The Barclays in the FedExCup playoffs, led the money list, and won the Vardon Trophy for low scoring average. Member of 2010, '12, '14 and '16 U.S. Ryder Cup teams and 2011, '13, '15, '17 & '19 Presidents Cup teams.

Led the Tour in official earnings ($4,910,477) and won the Vardon Trophy and Byron Nelson Award for lowest adjusted scoring average (69.61).

2011 Notes: Finished 6th in FedExCup points and earnings and recorded two runner-up finishes among his nine top-10s.

Kuchar compiled a 1-3-1 record as one of six rookies on the U.S. Presidents Cup team. Capped his year by teaming with Gary Woodland, representing the U.S. at the Omega Mission Hills World Cup in China.

Gary Woodland Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Woodland achieved his highest honors when he won his first major championship with a three-stroke margin over Brooks Koepka at the 2019 U.S. Open.

Converted a 54-hole lead/co-lead for the first time in his eighth chance at stroke-play events. Played a 34-hole stretch without a bogey (hole 10 in R1 through hole 7 in R3). Led the field in Scrambling (16/20) after entering the week ranked 169th in that category.

Carded a 61 in the second round, then had a share of the 36- and 54-hole lead, but shot 71 in the final round to drop back. The next week, was runner-up at the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges, finishing four strokes behind winner Brooks Koepka. Had a share of 10th place at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, thanks to a final-round 63. Was T-8th at the Hero World Challenge and nailed down his second runner-up finish of the year at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. He began the final round with a three-stroke lead and shot a 68 but lost to Xander Schauffele, who shot 62. Finished T-9th at the Farmers Insurance Open, helped by a 66 in the final round. In defense of his 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open title, Woodland finished T-7th with Chris Stroud and Sungjae Im. At the PGA Championship, shot 68 in the final round to finish T-8th.

On his return, finished 9th at the Charles Schwab Challenge, then T-5th at the Workday Charity Open. In the FedExCup playoffs, he missed the cut at the Northern Trust and T-33rd at the BMW Championship.

2021 Notes: Missed the cut in his attempt to defend his U.S. Open title. After shooting rounds of 74-74, Woodland revealed that he had a torn labrum in his left hip, which was giving him a lot of pain. Woodland says he has dealt with labrum issues in his left hip for a long time and has treated it with injections. But it flared up again, and he suspects the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down golf for three months played a role. When golf returned, he played seven out of nine weeks, which probably was too much. After a month's rest, played at the CJ Cup@Shadow Creek and finished 72nd. The next week at the Zozo Championship@Sherwood, he was three-under after the first seven holes, but was forced to withdraw with a back injury.

Was victorious in 1994, '95, and '96 U.S. Amateur, as well as 1991, '92 and '93 U.S. Junior Amateur and has won nine USGA Championships to share the all-time record with Bobby Jones.

Woods' 15th major win came at the 2019 Masters, a tournament he knows so well. But two years before this victory, Tiger returned to Augusta for the 2017 Champions Dinner. He wanted to attend, but his back was in such bad shape that he had to take beta-blockers just to move. At the dinner, he was heard telling fellow champions that his back was in such bad shape that he may be finished with golf. Afterward, Woods got on a flight for England and was told that the only way to get rid of the pain and possibly play again was to have fusion surgery. A couple of days later, Woods was in Texas and had the procedure done. Coming full circle, eight months after the surgery, he returned to competitive golf at the Hero's World Challenge and 17 months later won again at the Tour Championship. But two years after barely being able to get around at the Champions Dinner, he was having a great week and, thanks to a stellar second nine on Sunday, claimed a one-stroke win over Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele. The win came at age 43 years, 3 months, and 15 days, along with being 11 years since his last major at the 2008 U.S. Open and 14 years since his 2005 Masters victory. He also joined a list of players who have won a major in three different decades (Nicklaus, Player, Trevino, Floyd, Casper, Harry Vardon and J.H. Taylor).

Started swinging a golf club in the playpen at 6 months old. Was on numerous TV programs, including That's Incredible, Mike Douglas, Two on the Town, Good Morning America, and Prime Time Live.

Woods won virtually every significant junior championship, including 1991, '92, and '93 U.S. Junior Amateur. He played on the USA Walker Cup team in 1995 and was a member of the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 1997, '99, 2002, '04, '06, '10, '12, and '18. Member of 1998, 2000, '09, '11, '13 and '19 Presidents Cup teams. Won the 1996 NCAA Championship, making him only the sixth player to win both the NCAA and the U.S. Amateur.

After turning professional in August 1996, Woods became the fastest player (at the time) to win $1 million on the PGA Tour. He did it with a win at his ninth event, the 1997 Mercedes Championship. Fastest player to win $2 million on the PGA Tour (at the time) when he did it with a win at his 16th event, the GTE Byron Nelson Classic. Fastest player to win $10 million on the PGA Tour (at the time) with a win at his 69th event, the 1999 Tour Championship.

With his victory at the 1997 Masters, Woods became the youngest winner of the tournament and the youngest winner of a major since World War II. At the end of the 1999 season, Woods had played in 70 events as a professional. He won 15 titles and took home $11,315,128 in earnings, for an average of $161,645 per event. By the end of 2005, Woods had played in 185 events as a professional, amassing 46 wins and $55,770,760 in earnings, averaging $301,463 per event. Upon entering the 2013 Masters, Woods had played in 284 professional events, with earnings totaling more than $104.7 million. To view his success from another perspective, Woods has won about the same amount of prize money as the total earned by the 1,655 players on the PGA Tour between 1970 and 1981 ($107 million).

2009 Notes: After his return from knee surgery, Woods won six times on the PGA Tour, captured his second FedExCup title, and was voted Player of the Year. He also won the JBWere Australian Masters. Won all five matches at the Presidents Cup, four in the team competition with Steve Stricker, in the U.S. victory at Harding Park in San Francisco.

2010 Notes: Failed to win on the PGA Tour for the first time in his 15-year career, dating back to 1996. Did not play before the Masters. After 281 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Official World Golf Ranking, relinquished the title to Lee Westwood on Nov. 1. For the third time in his career, he completely revamped his swing, this time with Sean Foley. Made his sixth Ryder Cup appearance, but first as a captain's pick, where he was victorious in three of his four matches.

2011 Notes: Had his worst year on the PGA Tour up to that time, finishing 132nd in the FedExCup standings and 128th on the money list. Only played nine times on the PGA Tour and had two top-10s. Hurt his left knee and Achilles tendon at the Masters. Tried to play at The Players Championship but was forced to withdraw. Didn't return for three months until WGC-Bridgestone. Played on his seventh U.S. Presidents Cup team, compiling a 2-3-0 record, including a singles victory over Aaron Baddeley that clinched the Cup for the U.S. In his final appearance of the year at the Chevron World Challenge, he birdied the 72nd hole at Sherwood CC to win for the first time since the 2009 JBWere Australian Masters.

2012 Notes: Started the year 23rd on the Official World Golf Ranking and ended it in 2nd, just behind Rory McIlroy. Won three titles (at that point, the 12th time he won three or more titles in a season; did it a 13th time in 2013) and went over the $6-million mark in season earnings for the 10th time with $6,133,158. His win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational was his first official PGA Tour win in 924 days, and 27 PGA Tour starts between his 2009 BMW Victory and 2012 Palmer win. Was 3rd in FedExCup standings and 2nd in earnings. Finished 0-3-1 for the U.S. team at the Ryder Cup, halving his singles match with Francesco Molinari.

2013 Notes: Took over the No. 1 ranking at the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational, his third win of the season (Farmers Insurance and WGC-Cadillac). Won again at The Players Championship and the WGC-Bridgestone. Was at 79 wins, just three away from Sam Snead's record 82 wins on the PGA Tour. Finished the year second in the FedExCup standings and 1st on the money list for the 10th year. Won four of five matches at his eighth Presidents Cup. At the end of the year at his World Challenge, he took the lead after the second round and held onto it through the 72nd hole. After Zach Johnson holed a 58-yard wedge shot for par from the drop area on his final hole, the two embarked on a sudden-death playoff. Woods missed a six-foot putt for par on the first extra hole to lose the playoff.

2014 Notes: Failed to get off to a great start. Woods missed the secondary 54-hole cut at the Farmers Insurance Open and then withdrew from the Honda Classic's final round. Season-best was T-25th at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. All along, something was physically wrong with Woods' back. He had a successful microdiscectomy surgery for a pinched nerve on March 31, 2014, that prevented him from playing at the Masters (for the first time) and the U.S. Open. He made his return at the Quicken Loans National, missing the cut, then played at the British Open (69th) and the WGC-Bridgestone (WD), and missed the PGA Championship cut. It was the first time as a professional that he didn't have a top-10 during a single year. Tiger announced days after the PGA Championship that he would rest his back and not play again until December at the World Challenge. Also said that he was parting ways with swing coach Sean Foley, his third swing coach since turning professional (Butch Harmon and Hank Haney were the others). He came back at the Hero World Challenge, but his chipping was a problem as he finished T-17th in an 18-man field.

2015 Notes: Year began when he shot 73-82 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and missed the cut. The second round was his highest in a non-major as a professional. The only higher score in his career was an 85 in the second round of the 1995 U.S. Open when he was an amateur. Woods teed it up the next week at the Farmers Insurance Open, and his round was delayed for over two hours due to fog. When he got out on the course, his back stiffened, and he withdrew after 11 holes. Shortly afterward, he took some time off to sharpen his game. Woods came back at the Masters and finished T-17th. Also competed at The Players Championship, finishing T-69th, and The Memorial, finishing 71st. Shot an 85 in the third round of The Memorial, his highest round as a professional. His next start at the U.S. Open, he shot 80 in the first round and missed the cut. At the Greenbrier, shot 66-69-71-67 to finish T-32nd, then shot 76-75 to miss the cut at the British Open. At the Quicken Loans, shot 68-66-74-68 for an eight-under-par total to finish T-18th. Shot 75-73 and missed the cut at the PGA Championship. Finished his year at the Wyndham Championship, where he shot 64-65-68-70, a 13-under-par performance that was his best of the year. Ended the season ranked 178th in the FedExCup standings, the second-lowest showing of his career (behind the 201st-place finish in 2014).

On September 18, Woods underwent his second microdiscectomy surgery. At the time, it was deemed a success, but on October 28, he underwent a follow-up procedure to relieve discomfort. In December, he attended his Hero World Challenge and said he was healing but didn't have a schedule for his return to competitive golf.

2016 Notes: Attended a dinner in March for prospective Ryder Cup members at Jack Nicklaus' home, where he told players that he was improving and working hard on his short game, but he still wasn't able to provide a timetable for his return. Did not play on Tour in 2015-16 as he continued to rehabilitate from the microdiscectomy surgery. Served as one of captain Davis Love's vice-captains for the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine, where the United States defeated Europe 17-11. In December, he returned to competitive golf for the first time in 466 days at the Hero World Challenge, the longest layoff of his professional career. With rounds of 73-65-70-76, he finished 15th and led the field with 24 birdies.

2017 Notes: Made his first start at an official PGA Tour event at the Farmers Insurance Open. It was his first official event since the 2015 Wyndham Championship. He shot a four-over 76 on the South Course and then a second-round 72 to miss the cut. He flew from San Diego to Dubai to play in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and withdrew after shooting a first-round 77, citing back spasms. He then pulled out of the next two PGA Tour events he was planning on playing, the Genesis Open and the Honda Classic, as he continued his treatment and hoped his back pain would ease.

On March 31st, Woods announced that he would miss his second consecutive Masters because his back rehabilitation had not progressed to the point where he felt it was tournament-ready. Woods expressed his regrets to Augusta National Chairman Billy Payne but attended the Tuesday-night Masters Club dinner. In April, he had his fourth back surgery, then spent the next couple of months rehabbing. Served as one of Steve Stricker's assistants at the Presidents Cup.

2018 Notes: Played 18 PGA Tour events, making 16 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Was 2nd in the FedExCup standings. Made his first start back from his fourth back surgery at the Hero World Challenge, where he shot 73-65-70-76 and finished 16th. Woods was able to walk and play golf for the first time in a long time without pain. Made his first PGA Tour start at the Farmers Insurance Open and again had a pain-free week, finishing T-23rd. Missed the cut at Riviera and the Genesis Open, but the next week at the Honda Classic finished 12th. At the Valspar Championship, he shot 70-68-67-70, the first time he posted four-under-par rounds since the 2013 Northern Trust. He finished T-2nd, just one stroke behind winner Paul Casey. He returned the following week to the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the first time since 2013 and, with a final-round 69, finished T-5th. On the back nine on Sunday, he got within one stroke of Rory McIlroy, who was leading with three holes to play but made back-to-back bogeys at 16 and 17. Still, it was his sixth start in three months, and he was pain-free in all of them. Finished T-11th at The Players Championship and T-4th at the Quicken Loans National. Was T-6th at the British Open at Carnoustie, his first top-10 in a major since a T-6th at the 2013 Open. A third-round 66, his lowest round in a major since the second round of the 2011 Masters, highlighted the week. Posted rounds of 71-71-66-71, the first time since the 2010 Masters (T-4th) that he recorded four par-or-better rounds in a major. Paired with eventual champion Francesco Molinari, Woods entered the final round four shots off the lead. Took the solo lead at seven-under after nine holes, a shot ahead of Molinari and Jordan Spieth, but his lead disappeared with a double bogey at No. 11. Bogeyed No. 12 and birdied No. 14 before closing with four pars to finish at five-under. The performance moved him to the top-50 in the Official World Golf Ranking, the first time since January 2015. The ranking also earned him a spot in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, where he finished T-31st. Was runner-up at the PGA Championship, firing a 64 in the final round to finish two strokes behind winner Brooks Koepka. Opened with a first-round 62 at the BMW Championship but finished T-6th, three strokes out of the Bradley/Rose playoff. Captured his 80th PGA Tour title with a two-shot win at the Tour Championship. The victory came in his 346th start at the age of 42 years, 8 months, and 24 days. By comparison, Snead was 47 when he won his 80th title. The victory was Woods' fourth FedExCup playoffs tournament title: (2007 BMW Championship, 2007 TOUR Championship, 2009 BMW Championship, 2018 TOUR Championship). Woods was a captain's pick for the United States in the Ryder Cup and made his eighth start. It was his first Ryder Cup since 2012, but he failed to win any points for the U.S. in four matches played. Lost 2 & 1 to Jon Rahm in singles.

2019 Notes: Played in 12 PGA Tour events, making nine cuts with four top-10s. Placed 42nd in the Race to Dubai. Finished T-10th at the WGC-Mexico Championship, his 34th top-10 result in World Golf Championship events. At the WGC-Dell Match Play, won his group and defeated Rory McIlroy in the round of 16, 2 and 1, but lost in the quarterfinals to Lucas Bjerragaard, 1-up. Won the Masters by a stroke over Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele. On May 6th, Woods received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a ceremony at the White House. He was the fourth golfer to receive the Medal of Freedom. President George W. Bush presented the honor to Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus in 2004 and 2005. President Barack Obama gave the Medal of Freedom to Charlie Sifford in 2014. Returned to Bethpage and the PGA Championship and missed the cut. Was T-9th at The Memorial, where he shot 67 in the final round. Was T-21st at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and missed the cut at the British Open. In the FedExCup playoffs, withdrew from the Northern Trust and was T-37th in the BMW Championship. Played in three matches at the Presidents Cup. Posted a 3-0 record, and defeated Abraham Ancer in his singles match 3 & 2.

2020 Notes: Played in seven PGA Tour events, making seven cuts with two top-10s. Finished 63rd in the FedExCup standings. Started his season by winning the Zozo Championship by three strokes over Hideki Matsuyama. It was his 82nd PGA Tour title, tying Sam Snead for the most wins in PGA Tour history, and he did it on his 359th career start at the age of 43 years, 9 months, 28 days. When Snead won his 82nd PGA Tour title at the 1965 Greater Greensboro Open, he was 52 years old, and it was his 425th PGA Tour start. Woods finished T-9th at the Farmers Insurance Open. In the FedExCup playoffs, was T-58th at the Northern Trust and T-51st at the BMW Championship.

Bernd Wiesberger Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Wiesberger, born in Vienna, Austria, won several amateur tournaments, but his love of skiing almost marred his career in 2003 when he broke his collarbone in an accident on the slopes. He recovered, though, and enjoyed a successful amateur career. Having been taught by his father, he showcased his potential by winning the Austrian Amateur Stroke Play Championship three years running, from 2004 before turning professional in 2006. He also won the Austrian Amateur Match Play Championship in 2004 and the Austrian Youths Championship in 2004 and '05. He represented his country in the 2004 and '06 World Amateur Team Championship. Wiesberger played on the European Challenge Tour in 2007 and '08. He earned his European Tour card for the 2009 season through qualifying school. He did not win enough money during his rookie season to retain his card and returned to the Challenge Tour. Wiesberger won two events, the Allianz Golf Open de Lyon and the Allianz Golf Open du Grand Toulouse, en route to a 5th-place finish on the Order of Merit, good enough to secure a European Tour card for 2011.

Billy Horschel (bio)

Billy Horschel Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Horschel's first love in sports was baseball, but an injury when he was 14 led him to play golf. Born in Grant, Fla., he comes from a blue-collar family. Neither of his parents went to college, but they worked hard to make sure that he and his two brothers were able to get a college education. Golf opened the door for Horschel and he was able to get a golf scholarship from the University of Florida.

Horschel won individual medalist honors at the 2006 U.S. Amateur, shooting a two-day score of five under par (60-78 - 138) at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota. His opening-round 60 at Chaska Town Course remains an 18-hole USGA championship record, but he failed to make it past the third round of match play. Horschel also played as an amateur at the 2006 U.S. Open, where he missed the cut.

He played for coach Buddy Alexander's Florida Gators men's golf team. He was a four-time All-American, including three first-team honors, and the SEC Player of the Year in 2007 and '09. He also was a 2008 PING Southeast All-Region selection. Horschel graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor's degree in sports management in 2009.

Represented the United States at the Palmer Cup in 2007 and '08, earning four-and-a-half-points. He posted a 3-1 record for the victorious 2007 USA Walker Cup Team.

Turned professional in 2009 and in December that year earned his PGA Tour card for 2010 through the Q-School. A wrist injury, though, limited him to four Tour events, and he did not make the cut in any of them. In December 2010, he regained his Tour card through qualifying school to back up his medical extension.

2011 Notes: After missing his first three cuts, Horschel finished T-13th at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. He missed 10 cuts in his next 13 events and went into the Greenbrier Classic ranked 179th on the money list. Finished T-66th at Greenbrier, then earned his first career top-10 finish with a T-10th at Reno-Tahoe. A T-7th at the Frys.com helped him end the year 140th on the money list. Having finished T-103rd in Q-School, he had to rely on his top-150 status to play on the Tour for 2012.

2012 Notes: Only missed two cuts and had two top-25 finishes. Finished 3rd at the True South Classic and ended the year 147th on the money list. At Q-School, he finished T-4th, securing his Tour card for 2013.

2013 Notes: Made the cut in 22 of 26 tournaments he entered. Had three consecutive top-10 finishes before his breakthrough win at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in his 61st PGA Tour start. Horschel made six consecutive birdies in the final round and won by a stroke over D.A. Points. The victory and a T-4th at the U.S. Open moved him to fifth place in the FedExCup standings, fifth on the PGA Tour money list, and 37th in the Official World Golf Ranking a week before the PGA Championship. Played in all four FedExCup playoff events, and ended his year with a T-7th at the Tour Championship. Was 16th in the FedExCup standings and 13th on the money list.

2014 Notes: In a great closing stretch, Horschel won the FedExCup with a furious rally that included a T-2nd at the Deutsche Bank Championship and victories at the BMW Championship and Tour Championship. That stretch helped him win the FedExCup playoffs. His victory at East Lake meant that in one day, he earned the $1,440,000 first-place check for winning the tournament, a $10-million bonus for winning the FedExCup, and a five-year PGA Tour exemption. At age 27 years, 9 months, 7 days, he became the youngest FedExCup champion in history (previous youngest was Bill Haas in 2011 at 29 years, 4 months and 1 day). Also became the fifth player to win consecutive FedExCup playoffs events, joining Rory McIlroy (2012), Camilo Villegas (2008), Vijay Singh (2008) and Tiger Woods (2007).

2015 Notes: Finished 3rd at the Valero Texas Open, T-11th at The Memorial and T-8th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. The defending FedExCup champion wasn't able to return to East Lake GC to defend his Tour Championship and ended the year 66th in the FedExCup standings and 54th on the money list.

2016 Notes: Played 20 PGA Tour events, making 17 cuts and finishing in the top-10 five times. Best finish was T-4th at the Valero Texas Open. He placed T-5th at the Wyndham Championship. Finished 50th in the FedExCup standings and 57th on the money list.

2017 Notes: In his third start of the season, Horschel tied for the lead and in a five-way playoff, was eliminated on the first extra hole when he missed a putt of three feet. Got into another playoff at the AT&T Byron Nelson and won that playoff on the first extra hole when Jason Day missed a short par putt. Had two more top-10s, with a T-4th at the Honda Classic and FedEx St. Jude Classic. His season ended at the BMW Championship in the FedExCup playoffs. He placed 42nd in the final standings.

The team shot 65-73-61-67 - 266 (-22) using Four-ball (R1/R3) and Foursomes (R2/R4) formats, including a bogey-free final round. The win marked the fifth of his career in his 191st start at the age of 31 years, 4 months, 22 days. In his first start at the Barbasol Championship, he posted scores of 65-66-68-67 - 266 (-22) to finish T-2nd with Richy Werenski and Tom Lovelady.

Jason Day (bio)

Jason Day Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Day was introduced to golf by his father, who passed away when Jason was 12. The Aussie enjoyed plenty of success at the amateur level, highlighted by his win at the 2006 Australian Amateur Stroke-Play Championship. His decorated amateur career also included titles at the Australian Junior Championship, World Junior Championship, Queensland Amateur Championship, and the Queensland Medal Championship. He played on the PGA Tour of Australasia in 2004 and 2005.

A key to Day's current success was attending The Kooralbyn International School (TKIS) in Queensland. On that first day at Kooralbyn, he met Colin Swatton, who was the school's golf coach. Eventually, a bond developed, and Swatton became a father figure and mentor. He also helped Day develop his swing and game. When Day came to America and won on the Korn Ferry Tour, he called and convinced Swatton to join him in America as his swing coach and his caddie and traveling companion. Swatton is still his instructor, but he has since changed caddies.

Day has played in four Presidents Cup matches: 2011, '13, '15 & '17.

He made seven starts on the PGA Tour in 2006, with strong showings at the Reno-Tahoe Open (T-11th) and U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee, Wis. (T-13th).

He played on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2007, finishing 5th on the money list. At the time, Day's victory at the Legend Financial Group Classic made him the youngest player to win a Korn Ferry Tour-sanctioned event. At 19 years, 7 months, 26 days, he surpassed the previous youngest players to win on the two Tours, including Johnny McDermott's (19 years, 10 months) win in the 1911 U.S. Open and James Oh's (21 years, 5 months, 27 days) victory in the 2003 Mark Christopher Charity Classic. Later that year, Day shot 62-63 in the last two rounds of the Xerox Classic, equaling the Korn Ferry Tour record for a 36-hole total.

2007 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 19; Rounds Played - 66; In Money - 14; Top-10 Finishes - 7; Scoring Average - 70.03 (rank 9th); Money - $331,542 (rank 5th); Best Finish - 1st, Legend Financial Group Classic.

Claimed his first PGA Tour victory at the 2010 HP Byron Nelson Championship. He has played in three Presidents Cup Matches, 2011, '13, and '15. Since joining the PGA Tour, he has had health concerns, including diagnoses of swine flu, bronchitis and allergies that have been stabilized since 2010 thanks to sinus surgery. The runner-up at the 2011 Masters and U.S. Open had a career-best 10 top-10 finishes. He ended 2011 in 12th place in the FedExCup standings and 9th on the money list. He made his first International Presidents Cup Team, finishing with a 1-2-1 record.

2012 Notes: Day's sinus problems were held in check, but an ankle injury caused him to withdraw from the Masters and take a month off. He and his wife, Ellie, had their first son in July of that year. He recorded four top-10s in 17 starts, finished 88th on the money list with earnings of $1,143,233, and played the first two FedExCup playoff events, finishing 87th.

2013 Notes: Day was defeated in the WGC-Accenture Match Play semifinals by eventual winner Matt Kuchar and finished 3rd. He also recorded a 3rd-place result at the Masters, where he led after 36 holes and finished two strokes out of the playoff. At the U.S. Open, he finished T-2nd, two strokes behind winner Justin Rose. Day had a T-32nd result at the British Open and a T-8th at the PGA Championship. He finished the year 17th in the FedExCup standings and 12th on the money list. He had a strong performance in his second Presidents Cup appearance, posting a 3-1-1 record in the International team's loss to the U.S.

Days before playing at the ISPS Handa World Cup in November, Day learned that eight of his relatives died in Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, including his grandmother, uncle and six cousins. Despite the tragedy, he finished at 10 under par to earn a two-stroke win in the individual competition at Royal Melbourne G.C. in Australia. He then teamed with Adam Scott to shoot a combined 17 under par to win Australia's team competition.

2014 Notes: Day started the year finishing in a five-way T-2nd result at the Farmers Insurance Open, one stroke behind Scott Stallings. In his fourth consecutive start, at the Accenture Match Play Championship, and fifth in a World Golf Championships event, he defeated France's Victor Dubuisson with a par at the 23rd hole (fifth extra playoff hole) in the championship match at The G.C. at Dove Mountain.

Claimed his seventh victory in a 17-month stretch and 10th title on the PGA Tour with a four-stroke win at The Players Championship. Joined Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, and David Duval as the only players to reach double-digit wins on the Tour before age 29.

They had been together more than 30 years since they met the first day that Jason attended a boarding school when he was 12 years old. When Day came to America and won on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2007, he called and convinced Swatton to join him in America as his swing coach, caddie and traveling companion.

2008 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 23; In Money - 14; Top-10 Finishes - 7; Scoring Average - 69.80 (rank 4th); Money - $244,224 (rank 19th); Best Finish - winner, Utah Championship.

At the 2009 Athens Regional Foundation Classic on the Korn Ferry Tour, Todd became the first player on the tour to ace the same hole twice in the same tournament. On April 16, during the first round, he used a 7-iron to ace the 157-yard, par-3 17th hole. The next day, he made another ace at 17 with an 8-iron from 147 yards. In his rookie season on the PGA Tour in 2009, he made only five of 21 cuts and did not earn a Tour card for 2010. Todd rejoined the Korn Ferry Tour in 2010.

2010 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 13; In Money - 0; Top-10 Finishes - 0; Scoring Average - 75.19 (rank N/A); Money - $0 (rank N/A); Best Finish - Did not make a cut.

2011 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 24; In Money - 10; Top-10 Finishes - 2; Scoring Average - 70.79 (rank 85th); Money - $60,035 (rank 84th); Best Finish - T-10th, BMW Charity Pro-Am and WNB Golf Classic. In 2011, he was medalist at the season-ending qualifying school to return to the PGA Tour.

2012 Notes: Was the final player to retain any status on the PGA Tour. His finish of 150th on the PGA Tour's money list meant that he maintained conditional status and avoided the second round of Q School. As a member of the 126-150 category on that tour, Todd also had full Korn Ferry Tour status.

2013 Notes: Best finishes in 10 PGA Tour starts were T-13th at the AT&T National and the Reno-Tahoe Open.

2013 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 10; In Money - 9; Top-10 Finishes - 3; Scoring Average - 69.84 (rank 12th); Money - $247,948 (rank 11th); Best Finish - Winner, Stadion Classic at UGA. He finished 11th on the 2013 Korn Ferry Tour regular-season money list, earning him a 2014 PGA Tour card.

2014 Notes: Todd finished T-6th at the Humana Challenge and Valero Texas Open. On May 18, he won his first PGA Tour event in his 77th start at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Shot a bogey-free round of 66 on the final day to finish two strokes ahead of Mike Weir. The victory earned Todd a two-year tour exemption and ensured a first visit to the 2015 Masters. He followed up his win with a T-5th at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to move inside the top 60 in the Official World Golf Ranking and earn entry into his first major, the U.S. Open. He then finished T-8th at The Memorial and T-17th at the U.S. Open, which put him in the top 20 of the FedExCup points list to gain entry into the British Open. After that, finished T-5th at the Quicken Loans National and T-4th at the Greenbrier Classic, which helped seal an invitation to the PGA Championship, where he finished 72nd. Closed the season by advancing to the FedExCup playoffs, where he finished T-46th at The Barclays, missed the cut at the Deutsche Bank Championship, T-36th at the BMW Championship and T-17th at the Tour Championship. For the year, placed 27th in the FedExCup rankings and 18th on the money list.

2015 Notes: Played in 27 PGA Tour events, making 21 cuts with four top-10 finishes: T-8th at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, T-10th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and his best finish of the year, 4th at the RBC Heritage, just two strokes out of the playoff. At the Greenbrier Classic, was again just two out of reaching the playoff, finishing T-6th. Was T-12th at the British Open. Played in three FedExCup playoff events, and finished 46th in the standings. At the BMW Championship, he hit a 4-iron 50 yards right, and it started a terrible time in which he got into what he called the "ball-striking yips."

2016 Notes: Played in 29 PGA Tour events, making just four cuts. His best finish was T-26th in the season-opening Frys.Com Open. For the year, he was 184th in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee, 184th in Strokes Gained: Approach the Green, and 184th in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green. In his last 21 starts, he made just one cut at the Barracuda Championship and finished T-78th.

2017 Notes: The problem with Todd?s "ball-striking yips" continued as he played in nine PGA Tour events and made just one cut at the AT&T Byron Nelson.

2018 Notes: Played at six PGA Tour events and missed the cut in all of them; also missed the cut in two Korn Ferry Tour starts. After he missed the cut in his last event of the season at the Barracuda Championship at the start of August, Todd hit the low of his career, ranking 2,043 in the Official World Ranking. He hit rock bottom when he tried to Monday-qualify for the Wyndham Championship and shot 41 on his first nine and knew he had no chance of getting into the field. At the turn, he withdrew and started to drive home to Georgia, knowing he had nothing left. At this point, his confidence was shaken, his swing was a mess and his career had flatlined. It was time for some serious decisions: to either forget about golf, get a job, or open a pizza franchise. He decided to try golf one last time, to take three months off to prepare for the second stage of Korn Ferry Q-School. During that break, Todd started reading a book that Bradley Hughes had on his website called "The Golf Swing, The Great Ball Strikers." Todd fell in love with the book and did some of the drills it featured. He visited Hughes at his home in Charlotte, and with an abundance of drill work, saw results. Things didn't work out in the beginning, at the second stage of qualifying in November in Mobile, Alabama. Todd finished T-34th and didn't move on, but was encouraged that he improved each day with rounds of 74-71-68-63. He was also able to take the negative of missing out of qualifying and turn it into a positive because the next week showed up for Monday qualifying in Brunswick, Georgia, for the RSM Classic and shot 61 to make the field for the RSM Classic.

2019 Notes: Played in 11 PGA Tour events, making seven cuts with four top-25 finishes to finish 183rd in the FedExCup standings. In his first start of the year at the RSM Classic, Todd shot 68-69-69-68 - 274, his best score since The Greenbrier Classic in 2015, and finished T-54th. He missed the cut at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, but finished T-25th at Puerto Rico and T-39th at Corales Puntacana. With his T-18th finish at the Wells Fargo, including a third-round 73, he felt that his game was back. Since working with Hughes, he had begun to draw the ball more, had the ability to hit more shots with his irons, and felt his scoring ability returning. From where Todd had been, confidence doesn't return instantly, as his nerves reminded him while finishing the second round at Wells Fargo. Giving Todd another needed boost of confidence was his rounds of 65-66 in U.S. Open qualifying to share medalist honors and earn his first major start since the 2015 PGA Championship. He missed the cut at the U.S. Open. Played in the Korn Ferry Finals and in the first event, the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, finished T-2nd, two strokes behind winner Scottie Scheffler. Was T-20th at the Albertsons Boise Open and T-67th at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. With his 7th-place finish in the Finals points list, earned one of 25 PGA Tour cards for 2020.

2020 Notes: Played in 25 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts with four top-10 finishes. Finished 20th in the FedExCup standings. After missing the cut in his first four starts, was T-28th at the Houston Open. He then won back-to-back tournaments at the Bermuda Championship and Mayakoba Golf Classic, becoming the first player to accomplish that feat since Bryson DeChambeau in 2018. Recorded 12 consecutive rounds of 68 or better (R4/Houston Open through R3/The RSM Classic), becoming the second player on record (since 1983) with a streak of at least 12 such rounds (first: Tiger Woods did 14 straight between Rd 2/2007 Deutsche Bank and Rd 3/2008 Farmers). Was on track to win three events in a row. Led going into the final round of the RSM Classic but shot a final-round 72 to finish 4th, three strokes out of the Tyler Duncan/Webb Simpson playoff. Didn't have a top-15 finish until a T-11th at the Travelers Championship. At the FedExCup playoffs, he finished 64th at the Northern Trust and T-8th at the BMW Championship. Closed his season with a T-20th at the Tour Championship.

Ian Poulter (bio)

Ian Poulter Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Poulter took up the game at age 4 when his single-handicap father, Terry, gave him a cut-down 3-wood. His older brother, Danny, is also a professional golfer. Ian displayed his considerable ability in match-play golf in 2012, when he went 4-0-0 at the 2012 Ryder Cup. His inspired play all week helped fuel a come-from-behind win for Europe. He defeated Webb Simpson, 2-up, in his singles match.

In 2011, he won the Volvo World Match Play Championship, defeating compatriot Luke Donald in the final. The previous year, he became the first English winner of a WGC event when he captured the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Was in contention for the Masters that year but had to settle for T-10th. Made a huge contribution to Europe's 2010 Ryder Cup victory, winning three points out of four at the Celtic Manor Resort. That performance continued his fine Ryder Cup record, having been the leading points scorer, with four out of five, at Valhalla in 2008 after being selected as a wild-card pick.

Ended 2010 with a victory at the UBS Hong Kong Open, and nearly won the season-ending Dubai World Championship presented by DP World, but lost in a playoff to Robert Karlsson. The 2nd-place finish, though, was enough to finish a career-high 4th in the Race to Dubai. Also broke into the Official World Golf Ranking top-5 for the first time during 2010 and ended the season in 8th position. Renowned for his flair and fashion, Poulter launched his own clothing line in 2007. He is a heavy user of the social media site Twitter. Won the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award in 2000 and four years later made a successful Ryder Cup debut as part of Bernhard Langer's victorious European Team.

2010 Notes: Playing both the PGA and European Tours, Poulter started strong with a win at the WGC-Accenture, but finished the year with only one additional PGA Tour top-10, at the Masters. Member of the victorious European Ryder Cup squad and finished his year with a win in Hong Kong.

2011 Notes: Made 12 of 16 cuts but only had one top-10 finish, which came in his first start of the year at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, where he placed T-6th. Had the lowest finish in the FedExCup standings (87th) since 2008. At the JBWere Masters in Melbourne, Australia, he came from two strokes back on the final day with a four-under-par 67 to defeat Marcus Fraser by three strokes.

2012 Notes: Helped lead the Europeans to a come-from-behind win at the Ryder Cup. Finished T-3rd at the PGA Championship to record top-10s in three of his four major starts (7th at the Masters and T-9th at the British Open). Ended the year by winning his second WGC event, the WGC-HSBC Champions in China, in which he overcame a four-stroke deficit to win by two.

2013 Notes: Finished 4th at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, losing to defending champion Hunter Mahan 4 & 3 in the semifinals. At the British Open, he fired a final-round 67 that secured a T-3rd finish. On the PGA Tour, finished 53rd in the FedExCup standings and 49th on the money list. Ended his European Tour year with runner-up finishes at the WGC-HSBC Champions and the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai. Wedged between those results was a T-5th at the Turkish Airlines Open. Finished 2nd in the Race to Dubai.

2014 Notes: Started the year runner-up at the WGC-HSBC Championship, was T-5th at the Volvo China Open and T-6th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. On the PGA Tour, made 13 of 17 cuts. Finished T-23rd at the Deutsche Bank Championship, but it was not enough to advance to the third FedExCup playoffs event, ending his season at No. 78 in the standings and 63rd on the money list. It was only the third time in eight years of the playoffs that Poulter finished outside the top-60. On the European Tour, ended his year with a T-6th at the WGC-HSBC Champions and 2nd at the Turkish Airlines Open. After a T-21st at the DP World Tour Championship Dubai, he finished 13th in the Race to Dubai. At the Ryder Cup, he went 0-1-2 in his four matches in the European team's five-point victory over the U.S.

2015 Notes: Started his PGA Tour year with a T-6th at the WGC-HSBC Champions. In the weather-forced Monday finish at the Honda Classic, took a three-stroke lead at nine-under into the final round, which began Sunday afternoon and ended Monday morning. However, two double bogeys and a triple bogey led to a four-over 74 and a T-3rd finish, one stroke out of the playoff between Daniel Berger and Padraig Harrington. At the Masters, he finished T-6th and was T-5th at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Played in the Handa Global Cup in Japan and was T-4th. Had a busy end to the season, making a last-minute dash to play in the UBS Hong Kong Open. He had dropped out of the world's top 50 the week before, meaning he would not qualify for the WGC-HSBC Champions and, therefore, would be one short of the minimum 13 events necessary to retain his European Tour membership. Was able to fulfill those minimum requirements and finished 39th in the Race to Dubai.

2016 Notes: Secured his first top-10 with a T-3rd finish at the Puerto Rico Open. Limited to just 13 starts on the PGA Tour, the last being a missed cut at the Dean & Deluca Invitational, due to injury. Missed the playoffs for the first time since the inception of the FedExCup in 2007. Poulter had been dealing with an arthritic joint in his right foot for more than two years, and it reached the point where it was painful to walk and practice. He decided to sit and rest the foot, so he didn't play in another event for 20 weeks. That meant missing the Ryder Cup for the first time in 10 years.

2017 Notes: He returned to the PGA Tour at the CIMB Classic and was given a 10-event medical exemption. Poulter needed $347,634 or 218.42 FedExCup points to retain his full card. When he missed the cut at the Valero Texas Open, his 10th exemption, it appeared that he fell short of retaining his card. But because of a modification to the FedExCup points curve, both Poulter and Brian Gay, also on a medical exemption, would have been over the threshold of the old point system that was in place when they both started their medical exemptions. So, the tour grandfathered both Poulter and Gay and gave them a full status for the rest of the year. With a second chance, Poulter was able to play at The Players Championship and finished T-2nd, three strokes behind winner Si Woo Kim. Opened strong at the Scottish Open with rounds of 67-69, but over the weekend stumbled to 71-79 to fall into a T-9th, his best finish in a European Tour event since a 2nd-place result at the Turkish Airlines Open. Finished 3rd, one stroke out of the Vegas/Hoffman playoff, at the RBC Canadian Open. Ended the season 53rd in the FedExCup standings, his best showing since finishing 39th in 2012. Made the cut at the first three FedExCup playoffs, ending his season with a T-40th at the BMW Championship. Went back to the European Tour and was T-11th at the British Masters. He ended his season 61st in the Race to Dubai, his lowest finish on the European Tour.

2018 Notes: Played 14 European Tour events, making 14 cuts with one top-10 finish. Was 37th in the Race to Dubai. Played 20 PGA Tour events and made 16 cuts with four top-10 finishes. Placed 50th in the FedExCup standings. Was T-6th at the Dubai Desert Classic, which moved him to 57th in the Official World Golf Ranking and closer to his goal of getting into the WGC-Mexico Championship, WGC-Dell Match Play Championship, and possibly the Masters. He reached the Match Play event and made it out of his group, then defeated Louis Oosthuizen, 2 & 1, in the round of 16. He was told that an appearance in the quarterfinals got him into the top-50 and a trip to the Masters, but the information was wrong, and Poulter had to win his quarterfinal match. He lost to Kevin Kisner, 8 & 6, and was 51st in the rankings, one spot out of qualifying for the Masters. He went to Houston, but after shooting 73 in the first round, he believed he would miss the cut. He shot 64-65-67, though, to tie for the lead with Beau Hossler and then won the playoff with a par at the first extra hole, which got him into the Masters. He finished T-44th at Augusta National. The next week, Poulter had a one-shot lead going into the RBC Heritage final round but shot 75 and finished T-7th, three shots out of the playoff. Finished T-8th at the Italian Open and T-10th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Advanced to the FedExCup playoffs for the 11th time in 12 seasons. Ended the season 50th in the FedExCup standings. Was a captain's pick at the Ryder Cup and went 2-2-0 in his sixth appearance. Defeated Dustin Johnson 2-up in the singles to increase his record to five wins, no losses, and one halve.

2019 Notes: Played in 17 European Tour events, making 12 cuts with five top-10 finishes. Was 27th in the Race to Dubai. Played in 18 PGA Tour events, making 15 cuts with six top-10 finishes. He ranked 41st in the final FedExCup standings. Started the year with a T-10th finish at the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. Had a successful Desert Swing on the European Tour, finishing T-6th at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, T-3rd at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, and T-6th at the Saudi International. He continued his good play with a T-3rd finish at the WGC-Mexico Championship. At the WGC-Dell Match Play, he finished T-17th, winning two of his three matches (including a win over eventual winner Kevin Kisner, 2-up) but failed to advance from group play when Kisner defeated him in a group playoff. Was T-12th at the Masters despite shooting a final-round 73. At the RBC Heritage, again shot 73 in the final round to finish T-10th. Was 8th at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and started the FedExCup playoffs with a T-10th finish at the Northern Trust. His PGA Tour season ended with a T-31st finish at the BMW Championship. Went and played in five events on the European Tour, but his best finish was T-39th at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in those events.

2020 Notes: Played in 13 PGA Tour events, making 12 cuts with one top-10 finish. He was 88th in the FedExCup standings. Was T-5th at the Workday Charity Open. In the FedExCup playoffs, was T-39th at the Northern Trust. At the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open, was T-6th, three strokes out of the Rai/Fleetwood playoff. The next week was 5th at the BMW PGA Championship.

2021 Notes: Was T-12th at the CJ Cup@Shadow Creek.

Lee Westwood (bio)

Lee Westwood Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Born in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, Westwood began to play golf at age 13 with a half-set of his grandparents' clubs. His father, John, a mathematics teacher, took up the game at the same time to encourage his son. A talented sportsman at school, Lee played rugby, cricket and soccer during his childhood.

Westwood had a later start at the game than many tournament professionals, but less than two years later, he was the Nottinghamshire junior champion. In 1990, he won his first amateur tournament, the Peter McEvoy Trophy. In 1993, he won the British Youth Championship and turned professional. In November 2010, he achieved the No. 1 world ranking for the first time in his career, ending Tiger Woods' five-year reign at the top. He was runner-up at both the Masters and the British Open and finished 3rd in the Race to Dubai. He might have ranked even higher had it not been for a persistent calf injury in the second half of the year. Returned from a six-week layoff to lead Europe to victory at the Ryder Cup, then ended the season with a 2nd at the WGC-HSBC Champions, and T-3rd at the Dubai World Championship presented by DP World. It was a different story 12 months earlier at Jumeirah Golf Estates, where he was crowned Europe's No. 1 with a stunning performance at the Earth Course. A final-round, course-record 64 gave him a six-stroke victory and lifted his season's earnings to a then-record euro4,237,762. He became the eighth Englishman to win the Harry Vardon Trophy twice or more, having previously won the money list in 2000. Is second only to Nick Faldo on the list of England's most prolific champions. Equaled Arnold Palmer's Ryder Cup record at Valhalla in 2008 when he went unbeaten for 12 consecutive matches. European Ryder Cup Team member in 1997, '99, 2002, '06, '8, '10, '12, '14 and '16.

2010 Notes: Finished the year No. 1 in the world ranking. Gave up his PGA Tour card for the 2009 season and regained it for 2012.

2011 Notes: Ended his year with a flourish, winning the Thailand Golf Championship and moving into the No. 2 spot globally. In April, he regained the No. 1 position by winning the Asian Tour's Indonesian Masters, but Luke Donald took the spot at the end of May. Westwood rejoined the PGA Tour for 2012.

2012 Notes: Played in 27 events around the world. Made 14 of 15 cuts on the PGA Tour with six top-5 finishes but didn't reach the winner's circle. Best finishes were T-2nd at the BMW Championship and T-3rd at the Masters. He finished 10th in the FedExCup standings and 24th on the money list. On the European Tour, he won the Nordea Masters and finished 10th in the Race to Dubai. Also won in Asia in April at the Indonesian Masters. Went 2-2 for the winning European Ryder Cup Team, including a 3 & 2 singles victory over Matt Kuchar.

2013 Notes: Started the year with a T-5th at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Finished T-8th at the Masters. In his next start at the Wells Fargo Championship, he finished T-4th. Led the British Open going into the final round, but shot 75 to finish four behind winner Phil Mickelson. It was Westwood's best finish of the year, a T-3rd. Played in 26 events around the world. On the PGA Tour, was 41st in the FedExCup standings and 31st on the money list. On the European Tour, finished 13th in the Race to Dubai.

2014 Notes: Finished 7th at the Masters, then won the next week at the Maybank Malaysian Open. Also posted a top-10 at The Players Championship, where he finished T-6th after a nine-under-par performance. That was his last top-10 on the PGA Tour. He played the first FedExCup playoff event at the Barclays, finishing T-57th, but that was the end of the road. He finished 107th in the FedExCup rankings and 85th on the money list. On the European Tour after his win in Malaysia, he only had one more top-10, a T-8th at the Turkish Airlines Open. Finished 27th in the Race to Dubai. At the end of the year, won again on the Asian Tour at the Thailand Golf Championship, defeating Martin Kaymer and Marcus Fraser by a stroke. Went 2-2-0 in his four matches at the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland to help lead the European team to a five-point victory.

2015 Notes: Finished T-9th at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, and in defending his Maybank Malaysian title, finished T-5th, five shots behind winner Anirban Lahiri. After the Masters, he won the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters in Asia. Made it to the quarterfinals before losing at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play. Finished 38th in the Race to Dubai standings. In his last tournament of the year, he finished T-2nd at the Asian Tour's Thailand Golf Championship.

2016 Notes: Began the final round of his 17th Masters four strokes behind 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth, before a three-under 69 was good enough for a T-2nd with Spieth at two-under 286. Bogeyed the first hole Sunday for a third consecutive day, before an unlikely eagle-3 at No. 15 got him back on track.

Rickie Fowler Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Fowler, who shares a passion for dirt-bike racing with his father, Rod, gave up the sport after an accident before his freshman year in high school, resulting in a few broken bones in his foot. In 2015, he enjoyed his career's biggest win when he defeated Kevin Kisner in a playoff at The Players Championship.

His passion for golf took root when he was 3, and it's still growing. For example, at the 2007 Walker Cup in Northern Ireland, he posted a 3-1 record as the youngest player on the winning USA team. At the 2009 Walker Cup, he went unbeaten in four matches and led the USA to victory at Merion Golf Club.

He made the USA Ryder Cup Team as a rookie in 2010 and finished second twice that season.

Fowler enjoyed a successful career at Oklahoma State and typically wore all orange on Sundays as a tribute to his alma mater. He has played on four Ryder Cup Teams (2010, '14, '16, and '18) and the Presidents Cup Team in 2015, 2017 & 2019.

2009 Notes: As an amateur, Fowler lost in a playoff to Derek Lamely at the Web.com Tour's Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational. Fowler turned professional at the Albertsons Boise Open.

Three weeks later, he followed a first-round, five-over-par 77 with a second-round seven-under-par 65 at the Farmers Insurance Open, claiming a T-6th finish.

After finishing school in 2008, Wallace spent a couple of years working in a clothing store and played a bit of golf. His father discussed with him that it was time to decide on a direction his life would take. Wallace decided to go to America and attend Jacksonville State in Alabama. His friend Danny Willett was there, and he loved the thought of living in America. Despite being the No. 1 player on the Jacksonville team, Wallace decided to leave the program. He returned home and was a bit lost on what to do. He tried to get into golf management but couldn't find any opportunities, so he turned professional and played in mini-tour events around England. He contemplated giving up but decided to play on the Alps Tour. In 2016, he won six tournaments on the tour and won the Order of Merit. This enabled him to join the Challenge Tour in 2017. He also had a chance meeting with ISM agent Chubby Chandler, and they hit it off.

Chez Reavie (bio)

Chez Reavie Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Chez Reavie's first name is short for Chesney, his middle name. His full name was William Chesney Chez. The name was handed down from his grandfather. As for Reavie's golf game, genes probably had a little bit to do with that, too, as both his grandfather and father, Earl, were scratch golfers at one time. His journey playing golf began as a youngster on Dobson Ranch Golf Course in Mesa, Ariz. He attended Mesa Dobson High School before going to Arizona State University, where he earned All-America honors three times. Was the winner of the 2001 U.S. Public Links Championship, which earned him an invitation to the 2002 Masters (missed cut). Other amateur titles on his resume include victories at the Mesa City Amateur, Las Vegas Legacy Junior Championship, and the World Junior Golf Cup U.S. Finals.

Reavie played locally on the Gateway Tour in his first year out of college while trying to Monday-qualify for the Korn Ferry Tour. He tried to "four spot" (qualify for one of the final four spots in a tournament) four times and succeeded every time. The following year, he reached the finals of qualifying school and ended playing on the Korn Ferry Tour.

2006 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 22; In Money - 17; Top-10 Finishes - 1; Stroke Average - 70.24 (rank 12th); Money - $93,713 (rank 63rd); Best Finish - T-6th, Peek'n Peak Classic.

2007 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 27; In Money - 15; Top-10 Finishes - 4; Stroke Average - 70.78 (rank T-52nd); Money - $224,532 (rank 18th); Best Finish - 1st, Knoxville Open.

2010 Notes: Played 15 events with a knee injury in high school and didn?t have it surgically repaired. He missed nine cuts. Following the HP Byron Nelson Championship, he was diagnosed with a second meniscus tear and was forced to undergo reconstructive surgery on his right knee.

2011 Notes: Bounced back from his knee surgery in 2010. Began the season on a major medical exemption and did not earn enough to extend his medical exemption but wound up having a career year playing out of the past-champion category. Made 18 of 27 cuts, with a career-best five top-10s, nine top-25s, and had his biggest season, earning $2.3 million. Played all four PGA Tour Playoff events, finishing No. 10 in the FedExCup standings.

2012 Notes: Played in 26 PGA Tour events and made 15 cuts. Best finish was T-11th at the Travelers Championship. Finished the year 132nd in the FedExCup race and 135th in the money standings. He was forced back to Q-School, where he finished T-22nd to regain his Tour card for 2013.

Qualified for the Barclays in the FedExCup playoffs but missed the cut, ending his season at No. 118 in the standings and 126 on the money list.

2014 Notes: Started the year with a T-51st at the Frys.com Open, then missed the cut at the Shriners Hospitals. His season ended when he had surgery on his left wrist on January 14th to repair a torn sheath that holds the tendons in place. He was put in a long-arm cast for nearly four months, a short cast for another two, and, despite being told by doctors that the procedure went great, was also informed there was only a 50-50 chance it was actually going to work. But it did work, and he was able to play in three Korn Ferry Tour Finals events. Failed to earn exempt status through the Finals but showed continued improvement, finishing T-38th at the Chiquita Classic, T-32nd at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, and T-25th at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. After those starts, Reavie suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee that also required surgery.

2015 Notes: Playing on PGA Tour for the first time since wrist and knee surgery sidelined him, Reavie played in 19 events and made eight cuts. He recorded three top-25 finishes in consecutive starts toward the end of the summer but failed to advance to the FedExCup playoffs, finishing 166th in the FedExCup standings after the Wyndham Championship. Best finish was T-12th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. He ranked 173rd on the money list. Playing in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, he finished T-10th at the Hotel Fitness Championship. Claimed his second Korn Ferry Tour title in his 58th start, at the Small Business Connection Championship at River Run just outside of Charlotte. The $180,000 first-place prize moved him to the top of the Finals' standings after two events. Added a T-20th at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship the following week. At the Korn Ferry Tour Championship, carded rounds of 67-65-67 and was one stroke behind leader Emiliano Grillo with one round to play. Sunday saw the lead seesaw between the two players. When they reached the par-4 18th at TPC Sawgrass, they were deadlocked at 13 under par. Both hit the green in two, Grillo 25 feet away and Reavie 15 feet, on a similar line. Grillo made his putt, and Reavie missed, leaving the Argentine holding the trophy. But Reavie's mission had been accomplished. He wrapped up the No. 1 spot on the Finals' money list, with $323,066, earning full exempt status on the PGA Tour for 2016 and an invitation to the 2016 Players.

2016 Notes: Played in 27 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts and finishing in the top-10 twice.

Lost a playoff to Gary Woodland at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and the next week finished T-2nd at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, three strokes behind the winner, Ted Potter, Jr. Achieved his next top-10 with a T-6th finish at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Afterward, he missed six consecutive cuts before breaking the streak with a T-12th at the PGA Championship. After finishing T-20th at the Northern Trust, he was 26th in the FedExCup standings with a chance of playing at East Lake, but with a missed cut at the Dell Technologies and a T-38th at the BMW Championship, ended the year 34th in the FedExCup standings.

At the Sony Open in Hawaii, finished T-3rd with a 17-under-par 263 total, his personal low at the time. Reavie became the first player since 1983 to make three eagles on par 4s in the same round and the first player in the ShotLink era (since 2003) with three hole-outs for eagle from 100 or more yards in the same round. Finished T-4th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, five strokes behind winner Rickie Fowler. Reavie shot 64-68 on the weekend and was the only player to go bogey-free over the closing two rounds. Finished T-3rd at the U.S. Open, his first career top-10 in a major championship. The next week at the Travelers would prove to be one of his favorite moments of his career. Trailing by six strokes halfway through the third round, Reavie shot 28 on the back nine for a 63. Meanwhile, the leader who he was playing with, Zach Sucher, imploded. The result allowed Reavie to go from six strokes behind to claiming the lead after the round with his own six-stroke margin. Reavie shot 69 in the final round for a four-stroke victory. The win was his first since his rookie victory at the 2008 Canadian Open, a span of 3,983 days and 250 tournaments. In the FedExCup playoffs, he finished T-38th at the Northern Trust and T-57th at the BMW Championship to reach the Tour Championship ranked 25th. He fired rounds of 71-64-70-70 to finish 8th in the FedExCup standings

Erik van Rooyen (bio)

Erik van Rooyen Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Van Rooyen learned to play golf from his father and grandfather. He started playing when he was 7. His father was a member of a local club and would take him to play nine holes on Saturdays. When he was 14, he started playing competitively. He received South African Provincial honors and National Colours by the South African Golf Association after his senior year in high school. He played four years at the University of Minnesota, from 2009 to 2013, and was a team captain his senior season. While Van Rooyen's parents and family call him Erik, his teammates and friends call him Freddie or Fred, short for his given name Frederick. After attending the University of Minnesota and winning the state amateur championship, van Rooyen turned professional in 2013.

While at Minnesota, he met Rose Roberts, and after they both graduated, were married in 2014. They went back to South Arica to play there and in Europe, but the goal was to earn his PGA Tour card so that Rose and Erik could live in America and raise their children.

Van Rooyan has played on the Sunshine Tour since turning professional. In early 2017, he had his first win on tour, the Eye of Africa PGA Championship, making a birdie on the first extra hole in a three-man playoff. He played on the 2017 Challenge Tour, where he had his second professional win, the Hainan Open. A number of other good finishes, including 4th place at the Kazakhstan Open and a T-3rd at the season-ending NBO Golf Classic Grand Final, put Van Rooyen 3rd in the Challenge Tour Race to Oman rankings, earning a card for the 2018 European Tour season.

2018 Notes: In his rookie year, played in 25 European Tour events, making 19 cuts with five top-10 finishes. In just his 17 European Tour starts was runner-up at the Joburg Open, three strokes behind winner Shubhankar Sharma. The event was part of the Open Qualifying Series, and his high finish gave him an entry to the 2018 British Open, his first major. Was 10th at the Tshwane Open, T-7th at the Trophee Hassan II. After three rounds, he led the 2018 Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open by four strokes, but a final-round 74 dropped him into a T-4th. Was 5th in the Made in Denmark, on stroke out of getting into the Wallace/Thomson/Brown/Westwood playoff. Finished the year 36th in the Race to Dubai.

2019 Notes: Played in 29 European Tour events, making 22 cuts with eight top-10 finishes. Ranked 10th in the Race to Dubai. Was T-2nd at the Qatar Masters, two strokes behind winner Justin Harding. At the Hero Indian Open, finished T-6th. Had his second runner-up finish at the Trophee Hassan II, two strokes behind winner Jorge Campillo. Had his first top-10 in America at the PGA Championship, finishing T-8th. Was T-5th in the D+D Real Czech Masters but won the next week at the Scandinavian Invitational by one stroke over Matthew Fitzpatrick. Van Rooyen made a 15-foot birdie on the 72nd hole. He was T-10th at the Italian Open, then T-2nd at the Turkish Airlines Open, losing to Tyrrell Hatton in a six-man playoff. The good news for Van Rooyen was at the end of the year, he ended up 49th in the Official World Golf Ranking, which opened a lot of opportunities, including getting an invitation to the 2020 Masters.

2020 Notes: Played in 11 PGA Tour events, making six cuts with one top-10 finish. Was T-12th at the Abu Dhabi Championship but finished T-3rd at the WGC-Mexico Championship, three strokes behind winner Patrick Reed. Thanks to finishing T-20th at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and then T-51st at the PGA Championship, Van Rooyen was able to accumulate 334 non-member FedExCup season points, and with the 125th spot at the end of the season being at 276 points, Erik became eligible for PGA Tour membership for 2021 season.

2021 Notes: Finished T-23rd at the U.S. Open.

After graduating from Kent State in June 2014, Conners was planning to turn professional in the fall, but when he made it to the finals of the U.S. Amateur, all those plans changed. With it came invitations to play the Masters and the U.S. Open, so he put his professional plans on hold. He eventually turned professional after missing the cut at the 2015 Masters.

Conners won the Jones Cup in 2014. Was also runner-up at the 2013 and 2014 North and South Amateur Championships, and T-4th at the 2014 Canadian Amateur.

He then went out and did something that only four other players had done since 1980 -- Monday-qualify and win. The last player to go from Monday-qualifier to the victory circle was Arjun Atwal at the 2010 Wyndham Championship. Conners was 20 under par for the week to win the Valero Texas Open by two strokes over Charley Hoffman. He became the 15th Canadian to win on the PGA Tour.

A double-bogey 6 on the par-5 fifth hole derailed any hopes of a second victory, but he carded an even-par 71 for a T-7th.

Henrik Stenson (bio)

Henrik Stenson Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Stenson won his first major at the 2016 British Open, becoming the first Swede to win a major title. Took a one-stroke lead and turned it into a three-stroke victory over Phil Mickelson. Shot rounds of 68-65-68-63 for a 20-under 264 total, breaking David Toms' record for lowest aggregate 72-hole score in a major (265). Became the second player to post a 63 in the final round of a major and win, joining Johnny Miller, who accomplished the feat at the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont. Tied the 72-hole record for score in relation to par at a major (20-under) with Jason Day, who broke Tiger Woods' 19-under record, when he won the 2015 PGA Championship. The 264 total set a new scoring record at the British Open, and his 63 was the lowest final round by a champion in the event's history. His win at Royal Troon was his fifth career PGA Tour title in his 154th start at the age of 40 years, 3 months, 12 days, and his 11th European Tour win in his 320th event. Became the oldest first-time major winner since Darren Clarke won the British Open in 2011 at age 42. Joined Tiger Woods as the only two players with victories at a major championship, a World Golf Championship, The Players Championship and the FedExCup during their respective careers.

Stenson was introduced to the game by a family friend and became a scratch player by age 18. He won the 2000 Challenge Tour Rankings with a record of eight top-10 finishes, including three wins. Lives in Orlando and is coached by Dubai-based Peter Cowen. Won his first European Tour title in more than five years when he claimed the South African Open by three strokes in November 2012. In the interim, he won the biggest title of his career with style at the 2009 Players Championship, carding a memorable final-round 66 at TPC Sawgrass. In 2010, he enjoyed his best performance at a major by finishing T-3rd at the British Open, matching his previous best effort at the same event in 2008. Made the European Ryder Cup team for the second consecutive time in 2008 and won 1 1/2 points at Valhalla, teaming with Oliver Wilson for a remarkable comeback to defeat Anthony Kim and Phil Mickelson 2 & 1 in the Saturday-morning foursomes. Ended 2008 in memorable fashion by partnering with compatriot Robert Karlsson to win the Mission Hills World Cup, then secured a runaway triumph at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa. Won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in 2007 and three weeks later, captured the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, where he defeated 2006 U.S. Open winner and defending champion Geoff Ogilvy 2 & 1 in the 36-hole final. Member of 2006, '08, '14, '16 and '18 Ryder Cup teams.

2012 Notes: Played 28 events around the world, with his best PGA Tour finish a T-3rd at the Puerto Rico Open. Finished the year 111th in the FedExCup standings and 115th on the money list. On the European Tour, won the South African Open and finished 40th in the Race to Dubai.

2013 Notes: Finished T-8th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The next week, played to a T-2nd finish at the Shell Houston Open, his best result on the PGA Tour since his win at the 2009 Players Championship. The Houston win vaulted him into the top-50 in the world rankings and secured a spot at the Masters for the eighth consecutive season. Also earned invitations to the U.S. Open, the British Open and the PGA Championship. Finished T-5th at The Players Championship, T-10th at the BMW International, T-3rd at the Scottish Open and 2nd at the British Open. Finished 3rd at the PGA Championship and went into the FedExCup playoffs ranked 8th. Finished T-43rd at The Barclays, won the Deutsche Bank, finished T-33 at the BMW Championship and ended the year by winning the Tour Championship. Was 1st in the FedExCup standings and 2nd on the money list. Turned his attention to the European Tour and won the DP World Tour Championship, which helped him win the Race to Dubai honors. Stenson started and ended the year ranked 53rd in the world.

2014 Notes: Began the year with a swollen right wrist and forearm. The injury, which occurred while he was practicing at home the previous October, hampered his play, especially during the final stages of the 2013 Race to Dubai. Finished runner-up at the Thailand Golf Championship and 4th at the Nedbank, but didn't post another top-15 result until his T-5th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Also finished T-5th at the Volvo China Open and 5th at the Nordea Masters. Other top-10 results: T-7th at the BMW PGA Championship, T-4th at the U.S. Open, T-2nd at the BMW International in Germany and T-3rd at the PGA Championship. The defending FedExCup champion played his way through the first three season-ending playoff events before settling in at 52nd in the FedExCup standings after the BMW Championship and finished 49th on the money list. In the fall events on the European Tour, was runner-up at the Volvo Match Play Championship, where he lost to Mikko Ilonen in the final 3 & 1. In the year's Final Series, finished T-24th at the WGC-HSBC Champions, 3rd at the Turkish Airlines Open and won the DP World Championship, Dubai. The victory, though, wasn't enough to catch Rory McIlroy. Stenson finished 2nd. Ended his year 2nd at the Hero World Challenge, 10 strokes behind Jordan Spieth.

2015 Notes: Stenson had the best year of anyone without a win. Finished runner-up five times, three of them coming at the FedExCup playoffs. His year started on a dubious note when he missed the cut at Abu Dhabi, then finished T-13th at the Qatar Masters and Dubai Desert Classic. His game came around, though, and he finished T-4th at the WGC-Cadillac and 4th at the Valspar Championship, missing the playoff by one stroke. A week later, took a two-stroke lead into the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. His final-round, two-under-par 70 wasn't enough to hold off a hard-charging Matt Every, the event's defending champion, who closed with a six-under 66 to win by one stroke. Stenson's runner-up finish was his third consecutive top-10 at the event. The week before the Masters, Stenson came down with the flu and lost 20 pounds. He struggled starting at the Masters with a T-19th finish and didn't improve until June when he finished 2nd at the BMW International in Germany, a stroke behind winner Pablo Larrazabal. Stenson was T-6th at the WGC-Bridgestone before making a run in the FedExCup playoffs with runner-up finishes at The Barclays, Deutsche Bank and Tour Championship. At East Lake, he shot a final-round 72 and finished four behind Jordan Spieth. Stenson finished 2nd in the FedExCup standings and 9th on the money list. He finished T-3rd at the BMW Masters and 18th in the Race to Dubai.

2016 Notes: Started his European year with a 2nd-place finish at the Nedbank Golf Challenge. After that, he underwent surgery in Orlando, Fla., to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Five weeks later, finished T-3rd at Abu Dhabi, then T-6th at the Dubai Desert Classic. At the Arnold Palmer, Stenson finished T-3rd (three strokes behind winner Jason Day). It was his fifth consecutive top-15 finish in that event. Was 2nd at the Shell Houston Open, just a stroke behind winner Jim Herman. Finished T-4th at the Nordea Masters, then after withdrawing from the U.S. Open, won the BMW International. Won the British Open by three strokes over Phil Mickelson. Two weeks later, finished T-7th at the PGA Championship, where he entered the final round T-3rd, just two behind leader Jimmy Walker. A final-round 71 dropped him to 7th, six strokes behind Walker, who won. Stenson represented Sweden at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. With rounds of 66-68-68, was one stroke off Justin Rose's lead after 54 holes. In the final round, he headed to the 72nd hole tied with Rose at 15-under but bogeyed while Rose made birdie to win the gold medal. Stenson claimed the silver medal with a 13-under total. Ended his PGA Tour season with a T-41st at the Deutsche Bank Championship, where he finished 36th in the FedExCup standings and 21st on the money list. Decided not to play at the BMW so he could get ready for the Ryder Cup. Making his fourth start at the Ryder Cup, went 2-3 in his five matches in the European team's 17-11 loss to the United States at Hazeltine. Wrapped up the week with a 3 & 2 singles victory over Jordan Spieth. On the European Tour, was T-2nd in the WGC-HSBC Champions (counted toward 2017 for PGA Tour, 2016 for European).

Was T-8th at the Abu Dhabi Championship and finished 2nd at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, three behind winner Sergio Garcia. A week after having to withdraw from the WGC-Mexico Championship with a stomach ailment, he posted his second top-10 of the 2017 PGA Tour season, a T-7th at the Valspar Championship. The following week, he uncharacteristically missed the cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, his first since the 2016 Players Championship. Had missed three cuts in a row with Shell Houston and the Masters. In London, finished T-3rd at the BMW PGA Championship. Was T-10th at the BMW International. In defending his British Open title, he finished T-11th.

Danny Willett Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

In February 2015, Danny Willett started experiencing a back pain. He had it for most of 2013, but it went away. When things were looking up for him, he won the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the end of 2014 and reached the top-50 to receive a Masters invitation, but the back started acting up again at the Malaysian Open. He withdrew, worried he wouldn't be able to play at his first Masters. Over time, he has learned how to manage his recurring back issues. Was able to play the 2015 Masters and finished T-38th. But a year later, another problem came up when Willett and his wife, Nicole, were to have a child that was due to arrive on April 10, the date of the final round of the Masters. For a while, there was a thought that once again, something could keep him from playing at the Masters. Modern medicine marched in to save the day as Nicole was going in a week before the Masters for a scheduled C-section. Zachariah James Willett was born on March 30, giving dad enough time to get his wife and son settled into their English home while he flew to Augusta for the Masters. Twelve days later, Willett received another gift when Jordan Spieth squandered a five-stroke lead with nine holes to play. History will record that Willett shot a bogey-free 67, only the sixth time in Masters history that a winner fired a bogey-free final round. Over the course of the week, he had just one three-putt en route to becoming the first Englishman to win the Masters in 20 years (the last was Nick Faldo in 1996).

Willett was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, and is the son of a preacher and mathematics teacher. In 2007, he won the English Amateur Championship and Yorkshire Amateur and competed at the 2007 Walker Cup Match at Royal County Down. In March 2008, he became the world's No. 1-ranked amateur.

Willett played two seasons for Jacksonville State University in the U.S. During his time at JSU, he was the 2006 Ohio Valley Conference Freshman of the Year and won medalist honors at the 2007 OVC Championship. He was a first-team All-OVC performer and a member of the OVC's All-Tournament Team both seasons. He went back to Europe and was the leading amateur after finishing T-10th at the Open de Espana at the Real Club de Golf de Sevilla in May 2008. Willett turned professional afterward and earned his European Tour card for the 2009 season through qualifying school. Following a successful 2009, when he finished 58th in the inaugural Race to Dubai with eight top-10s, Willett challenged at the 2010 BMW PGA Championship, taking the first-round lead before falling off the pace and finishing 5th, winning Euro$190,800. Following this performance, he moved into the top-100 of the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time. He finished the 2010 season ranked 23rd on the Order of Merit. He made his breakthrough in 2012, winning the BMW International Open after defeating Marcus Fraser in a playoff. He proposed to his girlfriend a couple of weeks later. In September, he finished T-2nd at the Omega European Masters en route to taking 23rd place in the Race to Dubai, matching his best finish. It was the perfect way to put a frustrating 2011 behind him when he finished 91st in the Race to Dubai.

2013 Notes: Played 22 events with four top-10s. Best finish was T-3rd at the ISPS Handa Perth International. He ranked 62nd in the Race to Dubai.

2014 Notes: Followed up with a hugely consistent season, in which he recorded seven top-10 finishes en route to a 25th-place ranking in the Race to Dubai. Best finishes were T-3rd at the Irish Open, T-4th at the Turkish Airlines Open, and T-5th at the Omega European Masters and Maybank Malaysian Open.

2015 Notes: Willett sealed his second European Tour victory at the first event of the 2015 season, the Nedbank Golf Challenge. An 18-under-par total at Sun City was enough to defeat compatriots Ross Fisher and Luke Donald and collect the biggest paycheck of his career. Followed that successful week with another strong performance in South Africa, this time at the Alfred Dunhill Championship, where he was in contention for back-to-back wins before finishing T-4th. Thanks to these two events that were played in December 2014, he went from 84th in the Official World Golf Ranking to 50th on the last day of the year, right on the button for getting a Masters invitation. After the Masters, he reached the WGC-Cadillac Match Play semifinals, losing to Gary Woodland 3 & 2, then defeated Jim Furyk in the consolation round to finish 3rd. Also notched a T-6th result at the Irish Open. After two rounds in the 60s at the British Open, Willett was among the leaders but shot 72-70 to finish T-6th. The next week in Switzerland, he shot rounds of 65-62-71-65 at the Omega European Masters to win by a stroke over Matthew Fitzpatrick. With a T-3rd at the Italian Open and WGC-HSBC Champions, Willett made a good attempt to catch Rory McIlroy in the Race to Dubai. At the DP World Tour Championship, though, McIlroy won to take 1st place in the Race, while Willett finished T-4th, securing the runner-up spot.

2016 Notes: Won for the fourth time at the Dubai Desert Classic, then finished T-3rd at the WGC-Cadillac. With his first child's birth, a boy, Willett opted against taking Special Temporary Membership to the PGA Tour for the 2015-16 season. He intended to take membership for the 2016-17 season. After Willett won the Masters, he flew home and spent five weeks with his wife and newborn. He came back to play at The Players Championship, where he missed the cut, then finished T-23rd at the Irish Open and 3rd at the BMW PGA Championship. Represented Great Britain when golf returned to the Olympics for the first time at the 2016 Olympic Rio Games and finished T-37th. Despite finishing 75th in the FedExCup standings, he did not compete in the playoffs. The PGA Championship was his last start on the PGA Tour. He finished the season 93rd in the FedExCup rankings and 49th on the money list. In his first start at the Ryder Cup, he went 0-3 in the European team's 17-11 defeat to the United States at Hazeltine. Playing on the European Tour in the fall, was runner-up at the Italian Open. Finished 2nd in the Race to Dubai in his 21 official starts.

2017 Notes: Got off to a great start with a 6th-place result at the UBS Hong Kong Open. He also finished T-5th at the Maybank Championship. Afterward, he reached the weekend in only eight of his last 18 starts of the year. Finished T-18th at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, but the year produced problems with a lingering back injury that caused him to withdraw from The Players Championship and the U.S. Open. By the time of the Valderrama Masters, he announced he was taking off the rest of the year to rest a damaged rotator cuff in his left shoulder. He finished 96th in the Race to Dubai, and during his off time, his second child, a boy, was born on December 16th.

2018 Notes: Played 22 events, making 14 cuts with four top-10 finishes. Placed 20th in the Race to Dubai. Willett returned at the Dubai Desert Classic, saying he had overcome his injuries and was pain-free. After a slow start in which he played the weekend only once in his first nine starts, finished T-8th at the Italian Open, T-6th at the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open and T-7th at the Turkish Airlines Open. Won by two strokes at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, and earned his first victory since the 2016 Masters Tournament, a span of 953 days and 64 starts. Birdied three of his last five holes in the final round to card a four-under 68 for his sixth European Tour victory. With the victory, Willett announced that he would take up PGA Tour status for 2019 and play both tours.

2019 Notes: Played in 19 PGA Tour events, making 12 cuts with two top-10s. Finished 85th in the FedExCup standings. Played in 14 European Tour events, making 11 cuts with three top-10 results. Was 15th in the Race to Dubai. After a slow start to his season, finished T-8th at the RBC Canadian Open, T-12th at the U.S. Open and T-6th at the British Open, his best finish at a major since winning the 2016 Masters. In the FedExCup playoffs, was T-24th at the Northern Trust. Won the BMW PGA Championship, shooting 67 in the final round to win by three strokes over Jon Rahm. Ended his year with a 5th-place finish at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.

2020 Notes: Played in 13 PGA Tour events, making seven cuts with one top-10. Finished 146th in the FedExCup standings. Didn't get his first top-15 result until his T-4th finish at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Next best finish was T-18th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Christiaan Bezuidenhout (bio)

Christiaan Bezuidenhout Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Bezuidenhout almost didn't make it in life. At age two-and-a-half, he was playing on the streets with friends. He picked up a soda bottle and took a drink, but it actually contained rat poison. It was a moment that would change his life forever. He was lucky that an adult saw what was happening and took him to the hospital. They pumped his stomach to get rid of all of the poison, but it had already affected his nervous system. They got most of it out in time, but he suffered a long-term effect in developing a case of stuttering. That stutter eventually caused a severe case of anxiety.

His father played golf and got Christiaan fooling around with a 5-iron and a putter when he was 4 years old. The family lived next to the Delmas golf course, and in the afternoons, he would go the par-5 seventh hole and try to get up and down from the 100-meter mark. His father started taking him to the golf course when Christiaan started playing all the time. In his early development, he had three coaches, his father and his two brothers. Their critique and support molded him into the golfer he would become. His coach now is former professional Dougie Wood.

He played in many sports at school, including cricket, rugby and tennis, but golf was always his first sports love. He decided to give up on all the other activities after his first term in grade eight because he knew he wanted to make a career playing golf.

Still, he had a major problem with his stutter and went to a psychologist when he was 14 to develop enough confidence to talk in public situations. The psychologist gave him beta-blockers, medication that reduces blood pressure and helps treat anxiety. Christiaan used the medication for seven years during his amateur days, which helped him become more confident and enjoy his life again.

But little did he know that the medication would hurt his golf career. While playing in the 2014 British Amateur at Royal Portrush in 2014, he was picked for a random drug test. He told the tester that he was using beta-blockers. Two months later, while practicing for the Eisenhower Trophy on the South African team, he was told that he was suspended for two years for taking a banned drug. In a hearing, the sentence was reduced to nine months because it was determined he was not using the drug for any performance-enhancing benefits.

While all of this was happening, Bezuidenhout turned professional in 2015 and won the Order of Merit on the Big Easy Tour's developmental circuit for the Sunshine Tour.

2016 Notes: Played on the South African, European and European Challenge tours. In his first start of the year, he finished 2nd at the BMW SA Open, finishing two strokes behind winner Brandon Stone. He had a T-4th at the Barclays Kenya Open on the European Challenge Tour, was T-4th in the African Tour Wild Coast Sun, and on the African Tour, he won the Sun Finish River Challenge. Three weeks later, he placed 2nd at the Vodacom Origins of Golf Final, finishing two strokes behind winner Mark Williams. Bezuidenhout finished 6th on the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit.

2017 Notes: Played once again on both the South Africa Tour and European Challenge Tour. On the South African Tour, he finished 2nd at the Sun Boardwalk Challenge, one stroke behind winner Tyrone Ryan. In his 11 Challenge Tour events‚?¶his best finish was T-11th at the KPMG Trophy. At the end of the year, he earned a European Tour card after finishing inside the top-25 at Qualifying School Final Stage.

2018 Notes: Played in 26 events on the European Tour, making 20 cuts. His best finish was T-17th at the Tshwane Open. He earned euro314,967 and placed 105th in the Race to Dubai, good enough to hold his card for another year.

2019 Notes: This was a breakout year for him. He played in 28 events, making 19 cuts, and had six top-10 results. After a slow start in his first eight events, he finished T-2nd at the Qatar Masters, two strokes behind winner Justin Harding. The next week, he placed T-9th at the Kenya Open. After a T-36th at the Maybank Championship, he finished T-4th at the Hero Indian Open, three shots behind winner Stephen Gallacher. Was T-3rd at the BMW International, two strokes out of the Pavan/Fitzpatrick playoff. The following week at the Andalucia Masters, Bezuidenhout opened with rounds of 66-68-69 and went into the final round with a five-shot lead. The night before the final round, he got a phone call from Ernie Els. Bezuidenhout had graduated from his foundation back home, and the call boosted him. In that round, he started with two birdies but then made bogeys on four of his next five holes. He bounced back to play his final 10 holes in two under par to win his first European Tour title by seven strokes. With the win, he earned a berth in the British Open, making an emotional trip back to Royal Portrush, the site that started his problems using medications to help his stutter problem. Unfortunately, he missed the cut with rounds of 74-71. Two months later, he shot four rounds in the 60s at the BMW PGA Championship and his 16-under performance secured a 3rd-place finish, four strokes behind winner Danny Willett. The previous year, he finished T-23rd at the Omega European Masters to finish 491st in the Official World Golf Ranking. After his 3rd-place finish at Wentworth, he broke into the top-100, 92nd in the rankings. Bezuidenhout played in all three playoff events and finished T-12th at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, and ended the year 18th in the Race to Dubai with winnings of euro1,557,487.

2020 Notes: After another slow start in his first four events, he finished the Omega Dubai Desert Classic tied for the lead with Lucas Herbert, forcing a playoff. Herbert defeated Bezuidenhout with a birdie on the second playoff hole. The next week, he finished T-21st at The Saudi International and then claimed the Dimension Data Pro-Am, a dual European Challenge Tour and South African event. He dramatically defeated George Coetzee by making a six-foot eagle putt on the 72nd hole for a one-stroke win. With the victory, Bezuidenhout moved into the top-50 in the Official World Golf Ranking (48th). After the break from the Coronavirus, he was able to play in eight PGA Tour events. His best finish was T-20th at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. He earned 250 FedExCup points, but it wasn't enough to get him on the PGA Tour for 2021.

Phil Mickelson (bio)

Phil Mickelson Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Mickelson started playing golf at 18 months old, swinging left-handed as a mirror image of his father. When he got serious about the game, his father built a complete practice area in the backyard of their home in San Diego. Had a sterling amateur career, winning 1989, '90 and '92 NCAA Championships and the 1990 U.S. Amateur. Was also the low amateur (T-29th) at the 1990 U.S. Open and a four-time All-American. Mickelson won the 1991 Northern Telecom Open as an amateur, becoming the fifth-youngest winner of a PGA Tour event. He is one of only five players (Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Ryan Moore and Bryson DeChambeau) to win the NCAA and the U.S. Amateur the same year.

Turned professional at the 1992 U.S. Open and won five events before age 25. Plays golf left-handed but is right-handed in all other activities. Has finished 2nd on the money list five times but has never won the title. Was beaten out by Tom Lehman in the final week in 1996 when Lehman won the Tour Championship. Mickelson won four times that year, the most on the PGA Tour, and matched that mark with another four wins in 2000 and '05. In the generation of golfers of the last two decades, he is the second-best player behind Woods. Mickelson has never advanced higher than 2nd in the world ranking.

Member of 1995, '97, '99, 2002, '04, '06, '08, '10, '12, '14, '16 and '18 U.S. Ryder Cup teams. Member of 1994, '96, '98, 2000, '03, '05, '07, '09, '11, '13, '15 and '17 Presidents Cup teams. Member of 1989 and '91 Walker Cup Teams.

2009 Notes: Started the year winning the Northern Trust and the WGC-CA Championship. Took time off during the season after breast-cancer diagnoses for both his wife and mother. Won the Tour Championship to finish 2nd in the FedExCup standings.

2010 Notes: Won the Masters, but the rest of the season was tough. Contended in only a small number of events, mostly due to health concerns with his wife and mother, plus his medical problem of arthritis.

2011 Notes: Elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Victory at Shell Houston Open extended his winning streak to eight years in a row. A 10th-place finish at the Tour Championship led to a 15th-place showing in the FedExCup standings, making him the only player to finish inside the top-15 in all five of the competition's seasons. Finished 3-1-0 in his ninth Presidents Cup appearance for the United States, including a 3-0-0 record partnering with Jim Furyk.

2012 Notes: Won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 2012 while paired with Woods in the final round. Lost to Bill Haas in a three-man playoff at the Northern Trust Open. Placed 5th in the final FedExCup standings after a T-15th finish at the Tour Championship. Was the only player to finish inside the top-15 in the FedExCup standings in the first six seasons.

Inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.

2013 Notes: At the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Mickelson opened with a 60, then shot 65-65-67 to win by four strokes. His 28-under-par 256 total equaled Mark Calcavecchia's 72-hole tournament record and made him just the second wire-to-wire winner in Phoenix Open history. At Merion, he was in the running all four days for the U.S. Open title but lost by two shots to Justin Rose. At that point, he had finished runner-up six times at the U.S. Open. Took some time off for a family vacation in Montana, and after missing the cut at The Greenbrier, enjoyed a great two weeks in Scotland. He first won the Scottish Open over Branden Grace in a playoff. The next week at Muirfield, he entered the final round five strokes behind third-round leader Lee Westwood. A second-nine 32, including a birdie-birdie finish, led to a final-round 66 to win the British Open by three strokes. The victory lifted him to No. 2 in the FedExCup standings and the Official World Golf Ranking. The 43-year-old became the third-consecutive winner of the event over age 40, joining Darren Clarke and Ernie Els, both 42. Also became just the second left-hander to win the British Open, with Bob Charles first performing the feat in 1963. The victory came in his 20th Open start, the most for anyone in that championship's history. Also joined Els as consecutive British Open champions to win the event after being enshrined in the World Golf Hall of Fame. In his record, 10th Presidents Cup appearance for the U.S. was 2-2-1 in his five matches. At the end of the year, placed 9th in the FedExCup standings, 4th on the money list and 5th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

It was only the third year since turning professional that he did not win a tournament on the PGA Tour (other years were 1999 and 2003), and it was the only time he didn't have more than one top-10 for the year on the PGA Tour.

2015 Notes: Earned two top-25 finishes in his first seven starts. But at the Masters, he had his second consecutive runner-up finish in a major, finishing four strokes behind winner Jordan Spieth.

Broke the opening 36-hole scoring record at Royal Troon with a 10-under 132 total and a one-stroke lead over Henrik Stenson after the second round. The bogey-free streak came to an end at the par-4 12th hole, his first bogey in 29 holes. Went into the final round one stroke behind Stenson and five ahead of the next-best player but regained the lead at the first hole with a birdie to Stenson's three-putt bogey. Despite a final-round 65, finished runner-up after Stenson took a two-stroke lead with three holes to play, shooting a 63 for a three-stroke victory. Marked his 11th runner-up in a major championship, second only to Jack Nicklaus (19). Was his 27th top-5 in his 96th major start. Marked his 34th career runner-up, the most of any active player. The runner-up performance was his sixth top-10 of the season, doubling his total from 2015. It would be his last top-10 of the year.

On January 19th, 83 days after hitting his last competitive shot at Safeway and six days after making his last practice shot, he played at the CareerBuilder Challenge. He came back in style, birdieing his first hole of the tournament, and finished T-21st. Mickelson played in four more West Coast events and earned his first top-10 at the WGC-Mexico Championship, where he finished T-7th, four strokes behind winner Dustin Johnson. Two weeks later, at the WGC-Dell Match Play, he made it to the quarterfinals before losing to Bill Haas and settled for T-5th.

Mickelson's status for the U.S. Open was up in the air. On the Saturday of The Memorial, he announced that he was going to attend his daughter Amanda's high school graduation, which was the same day as the first round at Erin Hills. Finished 9th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Hoping for some bad weather that never materialized, he withdrew from the U.S. Open to attend Amanda's graduation. A week after that, Mickelson announced that after 25 years together, he was breaking up with his caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay.

Was introduced to golf by his grandfather, Mack, a Vietnam veteran at the age of 2. Grew up playing a par-3 course near his house called the Foothill Golf Center, where the monthly pass was $50. His grandfather always reminded him, "It's not where you come from, it's where you're going." Cameron's father Jeff played two seasons of professional baseball in the Baltimore Orioles organization. His career ended with an errant pitch from MLB Hall-of-Famer Randy Johnson, who hit him and knocked him out of baseball.

Graeme McDowell (bio)

Graeme McDowell Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

McDowell ended a 40-year wait for a European winner at the U.S. Open when he claimed his first major title in 2010 at Pebble Beach. He joined Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Tom Kite, and Tiger Woods as winners of U.S. Opens played at the famous oceanside course. His victory was only the second major triumph at the time by a player from Northern Ireland, following Fred Daly (1947 British Open winner), who also came from Portrush. It was the first U.S. Open victory by a European since Tony Jacklin in 1970. McDowell joined the elite company of UK golfers to have won the U.S. Open, alongside Harry Vardon (1900), Ted Ray (1920), Jim Barnes (1921), Tommy Armour (1927) and Jacklin (1970). His one-two finish with Frenchman Gregory Havret was the first by two Europeans since 1927 when Tommy Armour of Scotland finished 1st and England's Harry Cooper was runner-up.

The U.S. Open victory was McDowell's second win in a row. Two weeks earlier, he captured the Celtic Manor Wales Open with rounds of 64-63 over the weekend on The Twenty Ten Course, where three months later, he held his nerve against Hunter Mahan to seal the victory for Europe at the Ryder Cup. Added a victory at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, but ultimately finished 2nd to Martin Kaymer in a battle for the European Order of Merit title.

McDowell was born in Portrush, Northern Ireland, the middle child of three brothers. He picked up a golf club for the first time at age 7, when his dad, Kenny, would take him and younger brother Gary to the local pitch-and-putt course. At age 10, the boys were allowed to join Rathmore, the golf club that shares the world-famous links of Royal Portrush.

In a stellar amateur career, McDowell played a prominent role in Great Britain and Ireland's retention of the Walker Cup in 2001. He studied engineering at Queens University in Belfast, then transferred to the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he played college golf through the spring of 2002. As a senior with the Blazers in 2002, McDowell won six of 12 college events, as well as the Haskins Award, given to the outstanding collegiate golfer in the United States.

Won his first European Tour title in only his fourth start at the 2002 Scandinavian Masters and finished 6th on the Order of Merit in 2004 after winning the Telecom Italia Open.

Won the inaugural Ballantine's Championship in March 2008, sparking a terrific season that included a second victory at the Barclays Scottish Open and a Ryder Cup debut at Valhalla Golf Club.

Member of the 2001 Walker Cup Team. Member 2008, '10, '12 and '14 European Ryder Cup Teams.

Adam Hadwin (bio)

Adam Hadwin Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Hadwin began playing golf at a young age but didn't get serious about it until his teens. He credits his father, a teaching professional, for introducing him to the game and being his first coach. Baseball was his favorite sport growing up, but he eventually gravitated to golf. Despite being a Vancouver Canucks hockey fan, he did not play hockey as a youth. One of his great passions is cooking and he says that if he wasn't playing golf for a living, he would be a chef.

Has two Canadian Tour victories: the 2011 Pacific Colombia Tour Championship and the 2010 Desert Dunes Classic, which he won in a playoff.

Named Canadian Tour Rookie of the Year in 2010. Finished in the top-10 in his first three Canadian Tour starts. Received the Rivermead Trophy as the lowest Canadian at the 2010 RBC Canadian Open, finishing T-37th at five under par. Was runner-up at the Canadian Tour's Times Colonist Open and ATB Financial Classic in 2010. Won a 2009 Gateway Tour Winter Series Sponsorship event. Played on the South African Sunshine Tour in early 2011. Advanced to the match-play portion of the 2008 U.S. Amateur at Pinehurst. Played collegiate golf at the University of Louisville. Has played on two Presidents Cup teams, in 2017 and '19.

He enjoys cooking, playing tennis and watching hockey.

2011 Notes: Made the cut in all five PGA Tour starts and had two top-10 showings: T-4th at the RBC Canadian Open and T-7th at the Frys.com Open. Won the Pacific Columbia Tour event on the Canadian Tour, shooting rounds of 66-66-62-69 to earn his second title. In his 10-under-par third-round, he made eight birdies and one eagle.

2012 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 25; In Money - 13; Top-10 Finishes - 4; Scoring Average - 70.82 (rank 63rd); Money - $110,713 (rank 48th); Best Finish - T-3rd, Korn Ferry Tour Championship

2013 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 21; In Money - 11; Top-10 Finishes - 2; Scoring Average - 70.69 (rank 68th); Money - $76,182 (rank 66th); Best Finish - 5th, United Leasing Championship

2014 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 21; In Money - 16; Top-10 Finishes - 9; Scoring Average - 69.81 (rank 18th); Money - $76,182 (rank 66th); Best Finish - 1st, Chile Classic & Chiquita Classic. Played his way to the PGA Tour on the strength of two wins, a runner-up and a third-place performance in 21 starts.

2015 Notes: In his rookie year, had a T-10th result in his second start, the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, but in his next 17 events, didn't have a top-20 finish. Just before the Crowne Plaza Colonial Invitational, was 118th in the FedExCup rankings. Shot four rounds in the 60s and finished T-7th at the RBC Canadian Open, enough to get him into the FedExCup playoffs. It all ended at the Barclays, where he missed the cut, but he retained his PGA Tour card in his 30 starts with a 107th finish in the FedExCup rankings.

2016 Notes: Opened the CareerBuilder Challenge with a pair of 66s to head into the third round three shots off the lead. Despite a third-round 64 at the Nicklaus Tournament Course, he couldn't make up ground on the leader, Jason Dufner, with whom he was paired in the last group on the final day. While Dufner went on to victory, Hadwin posted an even-par 72 to finish T-6th at 20-under 268. Had a second top-10 at the John Deere Classic, where, with a final-round 64, he climbed to a T-8th finish. Was able to play in the first two FedExCup playoff events and finished the season 85th in the rankings and 100th on the money list.

2017 Notes: Began the year with a missed cut at the Safeway Classic. At that point, he was 200th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Had a T-10th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. His streak of good play began at the CareerBuilder Challenge when, in the third round at La Quinta Country Club, he shot a 13-under 59 to become the first Canadian to achieve that feat and the eighth different player to post a sub-60 round. Shot a final-round 70 to finish second, a stroke behind Hudson Swafford. Almost two months later, he was able to defeat Patrick Cantlay by a stroke to win the Valspar Championship, becoming the 15th different Canadian to win on the PGA Tour. The win created a bit of a dilemma for Hadwin, who was getting married 10 days later on March 24th, and then was to fly to French Polynesia for the honeymoon during the week of the Masters. He had already put down a healthy deposit at the Four Seasons Resort in Bora Bora but instead took a detour to play in the Masters. The next week, he finished 6th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, three strokes behind champion Marc Leishman. Finished T-36 in his first Masters. In his first WGC-Bridgestone and World Golf Championship event, he finished T-5th. Made it to all four FedExCup playoff events for the first time in his career. Finished the year with a 23rd-place finish at the Tour Championship and 26th in the final FedExCup standings. Made his Presidents Cup debut for the International Team at Liberty National after qualifying for the 10th and final position and had a 0-2-1 record.

2018 Notes: Played in 25 PGA Tour events making 22 cuts with three top-ten finishes. Was 36th in the final FedExCup standings. Finished T-3rd at the CareerBuilder Challenge, two strokes behind winner Jon Rahm. Was T-6th at the Genesis Open, then T-9th at the WGC-Mexico Championship. At the RBC Canadian Open, he missed the cut as his hip was a problem again, forcing him to withdraw from the WGC-Bridgestone. He hoped that by taking the week off, he would be ready for the PGA Championship. Hadwin's injury is due to a femoroacetabular impingement, a condition that causes bones to rub together and something Adam has been dealing with since he was young. The pain is so intense that Hadwin isn't able to hit all the shots needed to compete in a tournament. For example, Adam couldn't hit balls out of a bunker because of the way his hips are positioned. Historically, when Hadwin has dealt with the hip problem, he has been back to normal within a week after rest. He missed the cut at the PGA Championship, but his hip got better for the FedExCup playoffs. He finished T-11th at the Northern Trust, T-21st at the Dell Technologies, and T-19th at the BMW Championship.

2019 Notes: Played in 24 PGA Tour events, making 19 cuts with five top-10 finishes. Was 52nd in the FedExCup standings. Was T-10th at the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges and Mayakoba Golf Classic. Had his third consecutive top-three finish at the Desert Classic, finishing runner-up with Phil Mickelson after Adam Long made a 13-foot birdie on the 72nd hole to edge Hadwin and Mickelson by a stroke. Finished 6th at the RBC Canadian Open and 4th at the 3M Open, three strokes behind winner Matthew Wolff. In the FedExCup playoffs, he finished T-43rd in the Northern Trust and BMW Championship. Played in the Presidents Cup in three matches, compiling a 1-1-1 record, and halved his match with Bryson Dechambeau.

2020 Notes: Played in 17 PGA Tour events, making 15 cuts with three top-10 finishes. Was 54th in the FedExCup standings. In his first event of the season, he finished 2nd at the Safeway Open, a stroke behind winner Cameron Champ. Next week, shot 63 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and finished three strokes out of the Na/Cantlay playoff. His best finish after COVID-19 break was T-4th at the Rocket Mortgage. In the FedExCup playoffs, he missed the cut at the Northern Trust and had a T-40th result at the BMW Championship.

Jazz Janewattananond Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Janewattananond was born in Bangkok, Thailand. His real name is Atiwit but he switched to his nickname Jazz which was given by his father, a judge, due to the latter's preference for jazz music. At the age of 14 years and 71 days, he became the youngest golfer to make the cut on the Asian Tour at the Asian Tour International in Nakhon Pathom in 2010.

In September 2011, he played in his first Japan Golf Tour event, the 2011 Asia-Pacific Panasonic Open, where he made the cut and finished tied for 65th.

Had a two-week stint as a monk in his native Thailand at the end of the 2016 golf season, and credited that time spent inside the temple for his maiden Asian Tour win at the 2017 Bangladesh Open.

Jazz won his first Asian Tour title at the 2017 Bashundhara Bangladesh Open by four strokes. The victory was especially sweet for him as he finished outside the top-60 on the 2016 Order of Merit and he had lost his Asian Tour card for the first time since 2013 and missed the grade at the Qualifying School for the 2017 season, which left him with limited opportunities for the year.

2017 Notes: Played in 21 Asian Tour events and made 15 cuts. Had six top-10 finishes as he placed 9th in the order of merit with winnings of $314,988. He won for the first time at the Bashundhara Bangladesh Open. He got great news later in the year when he chipped in for eagle at the final hole of 2017 European Qualifying School Final Stage to earn a European Tour card for 2018 on the number after he finished T-25th.

2018 Notes: On the Asian Tour, played in 22 events, making 19 cuts. Had eight top-10 finishes, won the Queens Cup by four strokes over Gaganjeet Bhullar. A week later, finished T-2nd at the Sarawak Championship, a stroke behind winner John Catlin. Later in the year, was 2nd at the BNI Indonesian Masters, three strokes behind Poom Saksansin. Had winnings of $367,309 for the year and finished 9th on the order of merit. On the European Tour, played in 16 events, making eight cuts with one top-10 finish, T-6th at the Nordea Masters.

2019 Notes: Played in 15 Asian Tour events, making 13 cuts with 11 top-10 finishes. Won the Asian Tour Order of Merit with $1,058,525. Won the SMBC Singapore Open by two strokes over Paul Casey and Yoshinori Fujimoto. Finished 4th at the New Zealand Open, 3rd at the Maybank Championship, T-5th at the Bangabandhu Cup and T-4th at the Singha Chiang Mai Open on the All Thailand Golf Tour. Won the Kolon Korea Open again.

At the PGA Championship, Janewattananond was in the second-to-last group entering the final round, T-2nd and seven strokes behind Brooks Koepka, but shot a closing 77 to finish T-14th. At the end of the year, he won the BNI Indonesian Masters and the Thailand Masters.

2019 Japan PGA Tour Summary: Tournaments entered - 17; In Money - 16; Top-10 Finishes - 6; Scoring Average - 70.47 (rank 5th); Money - yen59,824,922 or $63,350, (rank 11th); Best finish: Win, SMBC Singapore Open.

2020 Notes: Finished 4th at the Hong Kong Open and 3rd at The SMBC Singapore Open, four strokes behind winner Matt Kuchar. Was also T-3rd at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

Jordan Spieth Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

With rounds of 65-69-65-69 at the 2017 British Open, Spieth finished with a 12-under 268 to win his third major title by three strokes over Matt Kuchar. Spieth did it the hard way, losing his third-round lead, and after making bogey at 13, he found himself one behind Kuchar. But he played the last five holes in five under par (birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie-par) for the win. It came in his 121st PGA Tour start at 23 years, 11 months, and 26 days. He joined Jack Nicklaus as the only players to win three legs of the grand slam before the age of 24. Nicklaus won the 1963 PGA Championship at the age of 23 years, 6 months. Spieth was just four days from turning 24. He now has 11 victories prior to the age of 24, second only to Tiger Woods' 15 titles (since 1983). The win at Royal Birkdale marked his seventh top-4 finish in 19 major championship starts, needing only a victory at the PGA Championship to complete the career grand slam.

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Spieth attended St. Monica Catholic School and Jesuit College Preparatory School, graduating in 2011. He played college golf for the Longhorns at the University of Texas. Spieth was an integral member of the 2011 U.S. Walker Cup team and played in three of the four rounds, halving his foursomes match and winning both singles matches.

His first important professional moment came in April 2015 when he won the Masters by two strokes over Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose. He led after all four rounds, becoming only the fifth champion in Masters history to do so. Spieth joined Tiger Woods, Gene Sarazen, and Tom Creavy as players to win three PGA Tour events, with at least one major, before turning age 22 since 1900. Became the third different player (Woods and Sergio Garcia) since 1940 to win three times on the PGA Tour before reaching their 22nd birthday. He also became the second-youngest winner of the Masters behind Woods (1997). Spieth was the first player to reach 19 under par at any point during any Masters round. He also became the first player to begin his Masters' career with eight consecutive par or better rounds. Tied Woods (1997) for the best 72-hole score at the tournament (270, 18 under). Broke Raymond Floyd's and Woods' 54-hole scoring record with a 16-under 200. Shot a 130 to break Floyd's (1976) Masters record for low first 36 holes by one shot. Tied the lowest opening 36-hole score in a major championship, joining Martin Kaymer (2014 U.S. Open and 2014 British Open), Brandt Snedeker (2012 British Open), and Nick Faldo (1992 British Open). Matched the largest 36-hole lead at the Masters (five shots) by Herman Keiser (1946), Jack Nicklaus (1975) and Floyd (1976). All four players went on to win. Became the youngest 18-hole leader (2015) and 54-hole leader (2014) in Masters history. Recorded the most birdies (28) of any player at the Masters. Also became the fifth wire-to-wire winner, joining Craig Wood (1941), Arnold Palmer (1960), Nicklaus (1972) and Floyd (1976). Held at least a share of the lead after five (including the final round) of his eight rounds at the Masters. Prior to his win, Ben Crenshaw was the last Texas native to win the Masters. Was the 13th-youngest major championship winner since 1900.

Two months later, Spieth achieved more magic at a major, winning the U.S. Open. Shot a final-round 69, bouncing back from a double-bogey at the 71st hole with a two-putt birdie at the last to finish five-under 275, one stroke clear of Louis Oosthuizen and Dustin Johnson. Had to wait and watch as Johnson three-putted from just over 12 feet. Entered the final round in a four-way tie for the lead but emerged to become just the sixth player to win the Masters and U.S. Open in the same season, joining Woods (2002), Nicklaus (1972), Palmer (1960), Ben Hogan (1951, '53) and Craig Wood (1941). Overall, he was the 16th to win the Masters and U.S. Open in a career. In addition, he became the youngest player to win two majors since Sarazen in 1922, the youngest to win the U.S. Open since Bobby Jones in 1923 (ninth youngest overall). Joined Woods as the only two players since 1940 with four wins before age 22 (21 years, 10 months, 25 days, compared to Woods winning his fourth Masters title at age 21 years, 3 months, 14 days). With the victory, he became the first U.S. Open champion from Texas since Tom Kite in 1992 and the first Texan to lead after 54 holes and win the U.S. Open since Hogan in 1953. Recorded the sixth-consecutive win in a major by the 54-hole leader. Also held a share of the second-round lead. His victory marked the fifth-consecutive major championship title by a player under age 30, the best streak since 1924. In the first two majors of the year, Spieth had either owned or shared the lead in six of the eight rounds.

Spieth's first big break came in July 2013, when he earned the last invitation to the British Open after he defeated Zach Johnson and David Hearn on the fifth extra hole of a playoff at the John Deere Classic. The win had historical significance, as Spieth won the tournament two weeks short of his 20th birthday, thus becoming the first teenage winner on the PGA Tour since Ralph Guldahl won the 1931 Santa Monica Open at age 19 years, 2 months. With the win and the exemption to play at Muirfield, he also earned PGA Tour membership. All of the points he won in 2013 shot him to 11th place in the FedExCup standings and guaranteed a spot in the playoffs.

Spieth had already been in the golf spotlight as a junior. He joined Woods as the only players to win multiple U.S. Junior Amateur titles when he defeated Chelso Barrett 6 & 5 at Gold Mountain G.C. in 2011, having previously won in 2009. Before he turned 18, he was the No. 1 player in the Polo Golf Rankings, which identifies the best junior players in the United States. Named Rolex Junior Player of the year in 2009, when he also finished 3rd at the Junior PGA Championship. Accepted an exemption to the HP Byron Nelson Championship on the PGA Tour in 2009 at age 16 and finished T-16th. Finished 32nd at the same event the next year. Was a member of the winning Walker Cup team in 2011. Reached the quarterfinals of the 2011 U.S. Amateur and Western Amateur. Was named AJGA First-Team All-American in 2008, '09 and '10. Played collegiate golf at the University of Texas, which won the NCAA Team National Championship in 2012. Spieth turned professional in December 2012.

Played on 2014, '16 and '18 U.S. Ryder Cup team and was on 2013, '15 and '17 Presidents Cup team.

2013 Notes: Used his first of seven sponsor exemptions at the Farmers Insurance Open, where he missed the cut, then finished T-22nd at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Turned his attention to the Web.com Tour and earned a T-7th at the Panama Claro Championship. The next week in Bogota, Columbia, he finished T-4th at the Colombia Championship. A few weeks later, he played at the Puerto Rico Open, where he finished T-2nd, then placed T-7th at the Tampa Bay Championship. Along with the $65,000 he earned for his T-22nd finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach, he had combined earnings of $521,893 to get Special Temporary Status on the PGA Tour. With the win at the 2013 Deere Classic, he didn't have to worry about member status for two years, and he became eligible for the FedExCup playoffs. Lost to Patrick Reed in a playoff at the Wyndham Championship when Reed made a birdie-3 at the second extra hole. In the playoff events, finished T-19th at The Barclays, T-4th at Deutsche Bank, T-16th at the BMW Championship, and with a final-round 64 at East Lake, was runner-up at the Tour Championship. For the year, he was 7th in the FedExCup standings and 10th on the money list. Selected to be on the U.S. Presidents Cup team by captain Fred Couples. He won two matches and lost two in his initial appearance. Was named Rookie of the Year.

2014 Notes: Was runner-up at Hyundai Tournament of Champions, also T-4th at the AT&T Pebble Beach. Reached the quarterfinals (T-5th) at the WGC-Accenture Match Play. Had the lead on the first nine of the final day at the Masters, but made bogeys at holes 5, 8, and 9, allowing Bubba Watson to pass him. Spieth finished T-2nd. Also was in contention on the second nine at The Players Championship, finishing T-4th after shooting 10 under par. In attempting to defend his John Deere title, he finished T-7th. Played all four FedExCup playoffs. Best finish was T-8th at the BMW Championship. Ranked 15th in the final FedExCup standings and 11th on the money list. Ended his year with some high points. His T-3rd at the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan was a shot shy of reaching the playoff. Won his next two weeks, first at the Emirates Australian Open by an impressive six-shot margin. Flew from Australia to Florida and again won at the Hero World Challenge, defeating Henrik Stenson by 10 strokes. At the Ryder Cup, he went 2-1-1 in his four matches to win 2 1/2 points.

2015 Notes: Finished T-7th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Bogeyed the 72nd hole at the Northern Trust Open to finish one stroke out of the James Hahn/Dustin Johnson/Paul Casey playoff, recording a T-4th finish with three others at Riviera C.C. Returned to the Valspar Championship, the tournament where he earned his temporary membership to the PGA Tour in 2013, and again found the event special. Shot a final-round 69, making some difficult up-and-downs on the final two holes to make par and enter a playoff with Patrick Reed and Sean O'Hair. At the third extra hole, Spieth made a 28-foot birdie putt to clinch the victory. With the win, he joined Woods, Sergio Garcia and Robert Gamez as the only players to claim two PGA Tour titles before age 22. In his next start at the Valero Texas Open, birdied four of his last five holes Sunday at TPC San Antonio, but the late charge wasn't enough to catch Jimmy Walker, who won by four. Spieth's 2nd-place finish moved the Texas native to No. 4 in the world ranking. The next week at the Shell Houston Open, he again was in contention, this time getting into a playoff with J.B. Holmes and Johnson Wagner, but he was eliminated when he bogeyed the first extra hole. The following week, he won the Masters in impressive style. He played at the Colonial at the Crowne Plaza Invitational a month later and finished as runner-up, one stroke behind winner Chris Kirk. Two weeks later at The Memorial, he shot a final-round 65 to finish 3rd, just two strokes out of the playoff. With his U.S. Open win, he had a chance to become only the second player, besides Hogan, to win the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open. A week before the British Open, he won the John Deere Classic, defeating Tom Gillis in a playoff. Made a gallant run at the British Open at St. Andrews, but finished T-4th, one stroke shy of the playoff in his bid to win the first three legs of the Grand Slam. Finished T-10th at the Bridgestone and went to the PGA Championship with the thought of winning a third major of the year (had only been done two other times, by Hogan in 1953 and Woods in 2000). Spieth came close again, finishing 2nd, but was three strokes behind Jason Day, whose 20-under-par total was the lowest under-par total in a major. Spieth joined Nicklaus (1971 and '73), Woods (2000 and '05) and Rickie Fowler (2014) as the fourth player in major championship history to finish all four majors in the top-5. In the four majors, Spieth posted under-par scores in 14 of his 16 rounds (third-round, one-over 71 at Chambers Bay and third-round 72 at St. Andrews the only exceptions). Overall in his four majors, was 54 under par, a stroke better than the previous best mark of 53 under par set by Woods in 2000. The next-best mark was 35 under par by Jason Day in 2015.

After the PGA Championship, Spieth missed the cut at the first two FedExCup playoffs, The Barclays and Deutsche Bank, but finished T-13th at the BMW Championship, and won the Tour Championship. The win gave him the FedExCup and money titles, and he took over the No. 1 spot in the world ranking. Became the youngest player since Horton Smith (turned 21 in the middle of the season) in 1929 to win five times in a season. Broke the PGA Tour record for most money won in a season, with $12,030,465. Singh (2004) held the previous record ($10,905,166). Ended the year playing in his second Presidents Cup (going 3-2-0 in South Korea), was runner-up in defending his Australian Open crown, and was named PGA Tour Player of the Year.

2016 Notes: Spieth ran away from the field at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, winning by eight strokes (one shy of the tournament record for largest margin of victory) over defending champion Patrick Reed. His 30-under-par 262 made him the second player in Tour history to win a 72-hole event with a 30-under-par score or better (Ernie Els won the 2003 Hyundai Tournament of Champions at 31-under 261). The victory was the seventh of his career, tying him with Woods for the most wins at the age of 22 or younger. Only Horton Smith, with 14, had more before reaching 23 years of age. Following a week off after winning in Maui, Spieth played back-to-back weeks overseas, finishing T-5th at the Abu Dhabi Championship and runner-up at the Singapore Open. Lost in the round of 16 at the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship. He also lost his No. 1 world ranking. Had a five-stroke lead going into the final nine at the Masters, shot 41 (including a quadruple-bogey 7 at the 12th hole) and was overtaken by Danny Willett. Ended the week sharing 2nd place with Lee Westwood, three strokes behind Willett. At his hometown AT&T Byron Nelson, found himself one stroke behind the leader after each of the first two rounds. With a third-round 67, he entered the final round in 2nd place again, this time two strokes behind Brooks Koepka. Struggled to a final-round four-over-par 74 to finish T-18th, five strokes out of the playoff ultimately won by Sergio Garcia. But he didn't let the disappointment at TPC Four Seasons Resort hold him down. He came back the following week with a three-stroke victory over Harris English at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational. His eighth win moved him above Tiger Woods (7) for most wins on the PGA Tour before the age of 23, trailing only Horton Smith, who had 14. Finished T-3rd at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, three strokes behind winner Dustin Johnson. Entered the FedExCup playoffs ranked 5th and had two top-10s, a T-10th at The Barclays and a 9th at the BMW Championship, but in his title defense at the Tour Championship finished T-17th, dropping him to 9th in the final FedExCup standings. Ended his year on a good note by winning the Australian Open for the second time. He made birdie at the first hole to defeat Cameron Smith and Ash Hall. Two weeks later, was T-6th at the Hero World Challenge.

2017 Notes: In defending his SBS Tournament of Champions title, Spieth led the field in birdies. That wasn't good enough, though, as he finished T-3rd, six strokes behind winner Justin Thomas. Was 3rd again the next week at the Sony Open in Hawaii, shooting a final-round 63, but was eight strokes behind winner Thomas. Finished T-9th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and the next week in his 100th professional PGA Tour start at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, he finished 19 under par for a four-stroke win over Kelly Kraft. After that, his game fluctuated from week to week. Finished T-11th at the Masters and T-2nd at Dean & DeLuca Invitational, but missed cuts at Houston, The Players and the AT&T Byron Nelson. His last result before the U.S. Open was a T-13th at The Memorial with a final-round 73. Finished T-35th at the U.S. Open. Shot 69 on the last day, which gave him a confidence that showed the week of the Travelers, where he opened with a 63 in the first round. Was tied after 72 holes with Daniel Berger and won on the first hole of a playoff when he holed his third shot from a greenside bunker for a birdie. Also won his third major at the British Open, defeating Matt Kuchar by three strokes. Looking to complete the career grand slam at the PGA Championship, he finished T-28th. Played great in the FedExCup playoffs: 2nd at the Northern Trust, losing a playoff to Dustin Johnson; runner-up again at the Dell Technologies, three strokes behind winner Justin Thomas; and T-7th at both the BMW Championship and Tour Championship. Finished the year 2nd in the FedExCup standings. Making his third consecutive appearance at the Presidents Cup, he posted a 3-1-1 record. Ended the year 8th at the Emirates Australian Open and T-3rd at the Hero World Challenge.

2018 Notes: Played 23 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts with five top-10 results. Ranked 31st in the FedExCup standings. Finished 9th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and T-9th at the Genesis Open. With a final-round 64, he finished 3rd at the Masters, two strokes behind winner Patrick Reed. Missed the cut at the U.S. Open, his first missed cut at a major since the 2014 PGA Championship. In his title defense at the British Open, carded a first-round 72 to sit T-50th. With middle rounds of 67-65, held the share of the 54-hole lead. Failed to make a birdie in the final round, closing with a 76 to finish T-9th. At the BMW Championship, he shot a final-round 73 and finished T-55th in the tournament. He entered the event 27th in the FedExCup standings but dropped to a T-55 finish that caused him to fall to 31st in the FedExCup standings. For the first time since joining the PGA Tour in 2013, he didn't qualify for the Tour Championship. Played in his third consecutive Ryder Cup and finished with a 3-2-0 record for the week in France. Paired with Justin Thomas to win three of the four matches. Lost 5 & 4 to Thorbjorn Olesen in singles. On November 25th, got married to his high-school sweetheart, Annie Verret.

2019 Notes: Played in 23 PGA Tour events, making 19 cuts with four top-10 finishes. Was 44th in the FedExCup standings. Had a first-round 65 at the Farmers Insurance Open, but shot 72-72-72 to finish T-35th. Went into the weekend T-4th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am but shot 74-75 to drop into a T-45th. Shot an opening-round 64 but followed it up with a 70-70-81 to finish T-51st at the Genesis Open. Best finish of the year was T-3rd at the PGA Championship. It was Spieth's first top-10 since his T-9th at the 2018 British Open and first top-five since his 3rd-place finish at the 2018 Masters. Spieth continued the good play with a T-8th at the Charles Schwab Challenge and a T-7th at The Memorial the next week. In the FedExCup playoffs, was T-6th at the Northern Trust, four strokes behind winner Patrick Reed. T-37th at the BMW Championship.

2020 Notes: Played in 17 PGA Tour events, making 14 cuts with three top-10 finishes. Ranked 107th in the FedExCup standings. Was T-8th at the CJ Cup@Nine Bridges.

Rafael Cabrera-Bello Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Cabrera-Bello began playing golf at 6 years old in his family's backyard garden, next to a golf course in the Canary Islands. He won the Spanish National Championship every year ‚?? from the Under-7 to Under-18 levels. He studied business, economics and business law at the University of Las Palmas but has yet to complete his degree because his studies were interrupted by his rise through the professional golf ranks. His younger sister, Emma, plays on the Ladies European Tour. Cabrera-Bello owns a house in Bali, where he enjoys water sports.

He started playing on the European Challenge Tour in 2006. In 13 starts, he had a win, a 3rd place, and four top-10s. Finished 13th in the Order of Merit that got him on the European Tour.

Si Woo Kim (bio)

Si Woo Kim Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Kim started playing golf at age 5 while accompanying his father on the golf course. He remembers at age 12 watching the major championships on television and K.J. Choi winning the 2011 Players Championship. This motivated Kim to one day become a champion, just like Choi.

Growing up, Kim won the Korean Junior Championship four years in a row. At age 14, he was playing on both the One Asian Tour and Korean Tour. The next year, he registered his first top-10, a T-9th at the 2011 SK Telecom Open on the Korean Tour. The next year, he finished T-3rd at the SK Telecom and turned professional.

When Kim finished T-20th at the 2012 PGA Tour Qualifying School, he was only 17 years, 5 months, 6 days old at the time, and the youngest player to graduate from Q-School. Due to PGA Tour rules, he could not become a PGA Tour member until he turned 18, midway through the 2013 season. In eight PGA Tour starts in 2013, Kim missed the cut in seven tournaments and withdrew from the eighth. He also played in seven Korn Ferry Tour events in 2013, making four cuts, with his best finish a T-11th at the Mid-Atlantic Championship. He later finished T-22nd in the Korn Ferry Tour's Q-School.

2014 Notes: Played 19 events on the Korn Ferry Tour, recording one top-10. Made four cuts. Finished the season 96th on the money list. Best finish was 3rd at the Cleveland Open. His rounds of 66-69-71 set the stage for a bogey-free, final-round 65, which left him one stroke short of the epic 11-hole Steven Alker/Dawie van der Walt playoff. He finished T-35th at Korn Ferry Tour Q-School in December despite a final-round 79.

2015 Notes: Finished the Korn Ferry Tour season playing all 25 tournaments, recording one win and one runner-up finish among his three top-10s. Had eight top-25s and 18 made cuts. Was 23rd in the final Korn Ferry Tour priority-ranking order.

At the Stonebrae Classic, he started with 66-65 and was T-2nd, one stroke back with four others, including Jamie Lovemark and Wes Roach. The trio all shot 69s on Saturday to share the 54-hole lead. On Sunday, they matched scores again (68) to finish at 12 under, setting up a playoff. Kim missed a chance to win in regulation when his short birdie putt lipped out, forcing the three-way playoff. Had a great opportunity to win when Lovemark three-putted from 35 feet for par on the first hole. Kim's 50-yard, pitch-and-skid stopped three feet short of the hole, a putt he would not miss a second time. The win came at age 20 years, 21 days. Only Jason Day was younger (19 years, 7 months, 26 days) when he won the 2007 Legend Financial Group Classic near Cleveland. Kim's victory was worth $108,000 and vaulted him from No. 67 to 16 on the Tour money list through 16 of 21 regular-season events. He then became the fourth South Korean to win on Tour, joining Kevin Na, James Hahn and Seung-Yul Noh. Made the cut in three of the four Korn Ferry Tour Finals events, with a T-16th at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship and a T-18th at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship, his top performances.

2016 Notes: Recorded his first PGA Tour top-10 with a 4th-place finish at the Sony Open in Hawaii, finishing four strokes behind winner Fabian Gomez. His second top-10 came when he finished 2nd at the Barbasol Championship, where he lost on the fourth hole in a playoff with Aaron Baddeley. Four starts later, Kim earned his first PGA Tour victory at the Wyndham Championship at the age of 21 years, 1 month, 24 days, becoming the youngest player to win in the 2016 PGA Tour season. He set the tournament course record with a 10-under 60 in the second round, which included eight birdies and one eagle, earning his first lead on the Tour. Kim entered the final round with a four-stroke lead and closed with a 3-under 67 to finish at 21-under-par 259, tying the 72-hole tournament record (Carl Pettersson, 2008) and winning by five strokes over Luke Donald. Kim played in all four FedexCup playoff events, and finished T-10th at the Tour Championship, ended the year 17th in the FedExCup standings and 26th on the money list. He then returned to Korea and finished T-2nd at the Hyundai Insurance KJ Choi Invitational.

2017 Notes: At The Players Championship, Kim began the final round two strokes off the lead and posted the only bogey-free final round, a three-under 69, to win. Kim became the first winner on the PGA Tour to go bogey-free over his last 18 holes since Jordan Spieth earlier in the season at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and the first Players Championship winner to do so since Tim Clark in 2010. Kim won his second career PGA Tour victory in his 61st start, 23 starts since his maiden win at the 2016 Wyndham Championship. At age 21 years, 10 months, 16 days, Kim became the youngest winner of The Players Championship. He was the first player from Asia to win twice on the PGA Tour before the age of 22. He is one of eight Korean-born players to win on the PGA Tour and becomes the fifth with multiple victories: K.J. Choi (8), Y.E. Yang (2), Sangmoon Bae (2), James Hahn (2), Si Woo Kim (2), Kevin Na (1), Seung-Yul Noh (1), Danny Lee (1). He finished T-13th at the U.S. Open, his last top-30 finish of the year. He ended 2017 ranked 54th in the FedExCup standings and made his Presidents Cup debut at Liberty National, finishing with a 1-2-0 record.

2018 Notes: Made 31 PGA Tour starts, with 23 cuts and five top-10 finishes. Was 55th in the FedExCup standings. Finished 2nd at the RBC Heritage, where he was defeated by Satoshi Kodaira in a playoff. Took 3rd place at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, four strokes behind winner Patton Kizzire. Finished T-10th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, and lost in the round of 16 to Justin Thomas at the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship. Notched his fifth top-10 of the year with a T-10th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

2019 Notes: Played in 28 PGA Tour events, making 16 cuts with five top-10 finishes. Was 46th in the FedExCup standings. Started his season with a T-10th at the CIMB Classic. Finished T-4th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and the next week was 3rd at the Genesis Open, two strokes behind winner J.B. Holmes. Led going into the final round of the Valero Texas Open, but shot 72 to finish T-4th, five strokes behind winner Corey Conners. Since that finish, had only made two cuts in his last 11 starts, breaking out with a 5th-place finish at the Wyndham Championship. In the FedExCup Playoffs, he placed 84th in the Northern Trust and T-28th at the BMW Championship.

2020 Notes: Played in 24 PGA Tour events, making 15 cuts with one top-10 finish. Was 81st in the FedExCup standings. Had a slow start to his season and another prolonged slump in which he only cashed one check in 10 consecutive starts. Broke out of it with a T-11th at the Travelers Championship. Finished T-3rd at the Wyndham Championship, three strokes behind winner Jim Herman. In the FedExCup playoffs, finished T-39th at the Northern Trust.

Francesco Molinari (bio)

Francesco Molinari Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Molinari claimed his first major title at the 2018 British Open at Carnoustie with an eight-under 276 total. He won by two strokes over four players to become the first Italian to win a major championship. The victory was his second PGA Tour title in 123 starts, and his sixth European Tour title in 253 starts at age 35 years, 8 months, 14 days. Entered the final round three strokes off the lead and playing with Tiger Woods in the third-to-last pairing. After 13 straight pars, he took the solo lead with a birdie at the 14th hole, one stroke ahead of six players at 6-under, including Justin Rose, who was the clubhouse leader. Added a second birdie at the 18th hole, making a putt from five feet to shoot the only bogey-free final round of 69. A third-round, 6-under 65 marked his career-low in his previous 122 rounds in major championships (was competing in his 36th career major). Played the final 37 holes without a bogey, the only player in the field with two bogey-free rounds. With 17 birdies for the week, tied for most with Brooks Koepka and Cameron Davis.

Francesco began swinging a club at age 5. Golf was a family passion as his parents, grandparents and even paternal grandparents were single-digit-handicappers. He wasn't able to play at his parents' golf club in Torino until after he turned 8, so his family would take him and his older brother Edoardo to the ski town call Sestriere which had an 18-hole course they could play. By the time Francesco was 12, he had a 12 handicap, by 16, he was a scratch player. His parents were strict on the point that education came first, so Francesco got a degree in economics and Edoardo in engineering. Francesco wrote his thesis on the business side of the European Tour and its various divisions.

Molinari won the Sherry Cup, the Italian Amateur Stroke Play Championship twice, and the Italian Match Play Championship in 2004. He reached the semifinals at the 2003 British Amateur held at Royal Troon, losing to Gary Wolstenholme with Edoardo as his caddy. Francesco turned professional in the fall of 2004.

He earned his European Tour card for 2005 through qualifying school. He finished 86th on the tour's Order of Merit in his rookie season.

Francesco upstaged the exploits of his older brother, Edoardo Molinari, at Castello di Tolcinasco G. & C.C. in Milan in May 2006, just nine months after Edoardo became the first Italian winner of the U.S. Amateur Championship at Merion Golf Club. Francesco thrilled the Milanese crowds by capturing the Telecom Italian Open, where he became the first Italian player to win the event since Massimo Mannelli 26 years earlier. The victory helped him finish 38th on the Order of Merit. Molinari didn't win on tour between 2007-09, but during that time, he recorded 20 top-10 finishes, including three runner-up results. He finished 60th on the Order of Merit in 2007, 24th in 2008, and 14th in the 2009 Race to Dubai. In October 2009, Molinari reached the top-50 of the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time.

At the end of 2009, Molinari, along with Edoardo, led Italy to its first World Cup victory at the Omega Mission Hills World Cup in China.

He enjoys snowboarding, playing football and supporting the Inter Milan team.

2010 Notes: Molinari was a member of the European Ryder Cup team for the first time, claiming a half-point in his final singles match against Tiger Woods to give Europe a thrilling 14-and-a-half to 13-and-a-half victory. Ended 2010 on a high note by winning the WGC-HSBC Champions, edging Lee Westwood by a stroke. Finished the year T-6th at the DP World Tour Championship. He recorded 11 top-10 finishes, including two runner-up results, en route to a 5th-place finish in the Race to Dubai.

2011 Notes: His only top-10 finish on the PGA Tour was a T-3rd at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, set up in large part with matching four-under 68s in the opening two rounds. He eventually finished three strokes behind Nick Watney. In the Race to Dubai, he finished 21st.

2012 Notes: Another year with a victory, this time at Reale Seguros Open de Espana. Also finished runner-up at the Alstom Open de France and the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in consecutive weeks, shooting a final-round 64 in the former and losing to Jeev Milkha Singh in a playoff. Started the year 39th on the Official World Golf Ranking and ended the year 30th. Finished the year 8th in the Race to Dubai. His record was 0-2-1 in his second Ryder Cup appearance. He earned a half-point in his singles match against Tiger Woods.

Had two top-10s in 25 starts on the European Tour: 4th at the Volvo China Open and T-7th at the BMW PGA Championship. Also played on the PGA Tour and had top-10s at the Arnold Palmer Invitational (T-5th) and The Players Championship (T-6th). Made the cut in all 12 starts on the PGA Tour as a non-member and was able to get into the top-125 to earn a PGA Tour card for 2015.

2015 Notes: Played 14 European events, making 14 cuts. Played 16 PGA Tour events and made the cut in 13 of them. Started the year with a T-6th finish at the Alfred Dunhill Championship. Added top-10s at the Humana Challenge (T-10th), Open de Espana (T-2nd), BMW PGA Championship (5th), Memorial (T-3rd), and the Alstom Open de France (T-6th). He finished 32nd in the Race to Dubai and 111th in the FedExCup standings.

2016 Notes: First top-10 was a T-9th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and he earned another, a T-7th at The Players Championship. He also finished T-8th at the Quicken Loans National and was runner-up at the French Open, four strokes behind winner Thongchai Jaidee. Closed out his PGA Tour season by missing the cut in his first start at a FedExCup playoff event, The Barclays. Was 111th in the FedExCup and 98th on the money list. Returned to the European Tour, where he had only played in two full-fledged European events, and became a hometown hero at the Italian Open, where he shot a final-round 65 to defeat Danny Willett by one stroke. He became the first Italian to win his national Open twice (also won in 2006) since it became part of the European Tour in 1972. Finished T-6th at the WGC-HSBC Champions and closed out his European Tour year with a T-4th at the DP World Tour Dubai. Ended the year 19th in the Race to Dubai. Finished T-6th at the ISPS Handa World Cup with teammate Matteo Manassero on Italy's team at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Australia in late-November.

2017 Notes: Finished T-4th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, where he advanced 40 spots on the leader board with a final-round 61, his best score on the PGA Tour. Starting at the CareerBuilder Challenge, he put together a run in which he placed in the top-20 in five of his next six starts. Best finish was T-7th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He finished T-6th at The Players Championship and 2nd at the BMW PGA Championship. A bit unlucky at Wentworth, he finished two strokes behind winner Alex Noren, who shot a final-round 62. Had his first top-5 in a major with a T-2nd finish at the PGA Championship. Molinari shot 67 in the final round to finish two strokes behind winner Justin Thomas. Was T-6th at the Italian Open and finished 9th in the Race to Dubai.

2018 Notes: Played 12 European events, making 12 cuts with four top-10 finishes. Finished 1st in the Race to Dubai. Played 20 PGA Tour events and made 217 cuts with five top-10 finishes. Was 17th in the FedExCup standings. Took 8th place at the unofficial Hero World Challenge. Won the BMW PGA Championship by two strokes over Rory McIlroy. The next week, he was 2nd at the Italian Open, a stroke behind winner Thorbjorn Olesen. After finishing T-25th at the U.S. Open, he won the Quicken Loans National by eight strokes over Ryan Armour. The win was his first career PGA Tour victory, and he became the first Italian to win on Tour since Toney Penna captured the title at the 1947 Atlanta Open. Molinari took a bit of a gamble playing in Washington instead of playing on the European Tour at the French Open. He said that the French Open is one of his favorite European Tour events and a tournament that could have helped his Ryder Cup status. He chose to play in Washington instead because, at the time, he was 123rd in the FedExCup standings and needed to secure a spot in the playoffs at season's end. The strategy paid off as he moved up 81 spots to 42nd in the FedExCup rankings, but he wasn't finished. He had a T-2nd result at the John Deere Classic, then won the British Open for his third win in his last six worldwide starts. With the victory, he advanced to 6th in the world rankings, the first Italian to get into the top-10, and climbed to 7th in the FedExCup standings. In his 31 starts between the British Open and the 2017 BMW PGA Championship, he not only has won three times but also has four runner-up finishes. Was T-6th at the PGA Championship and T-8th at the BMW Championship. Made a return to the Ryder Cup for a third time (didn't play on the team in 2014 or '16) and went 5-0-0. He became the first player in history to win five points in the Ryder Cup and win a major in the same year. Molinari and teammate Tommy Fleetwood played together in four matches and won all four. Molinari won his singles match against Phil Mickelson 4 & 2 to cap off his historic Ryder Cup performance.

He was 30th in the Race to Dubai. Took time off between the DP World Dubai in November and the WGC-Mexico Championship at the end of February. He only played once, finishing T-27th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Was planning on playing at the Genesis but had a bout of the flu. Returned at the WGC-Mexico Championship, finishing T-17th, and won the Arnold Palmer Invitational. His final-round 64 included a 43-foot birdie putt at the 72nd hole to win by two strokes over Matthew Fitzpatrick. He teed off early and finished his final round 100 minutes before play concluded. Made it to the semifinals of the WGC-Dell Match Play but was defeated by eventual-champion Kevin Kisner. Finished 3rd by defeating Lucas Bjerregaard, 4 & 2, in the consolation match. Went undefeated in group play. He defeated Paul Casey, 5 & 4, in the fourth round and Kevin Na, 6 & 5, to advance to the semifinals. At the Masters, Molinari shared the 36-hole lead and held the 54-hole lead by two strokes. But after a double-bogey at 12 and 15, he shot 74 and finished T-5th, two strokes behind winner Tiger Woods. In defense of his British Open title, shot 66 in the final round to finish T-11th. In the FedEx Cup Playoffs, was 82nd in the Northern Trust and T-61st in the BMW Championship.

2020 Notes: Played in just six PGA Tour events, making three cuts with two top-25 finishes. Was T-22nd in the WGC-HSBC Champions. In the calendar year of 2020, has only played four events and played four rounds in one start, which is his last start, T-53rd, at the WGC-Mexico Championship. Did not make a start on the PGA Tour after the suspension of the season due to COVID-19 in March. He finished 193rd in the FedExCup standings and failed to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time in his sixth season as a member. During the global health crisis, Molinari went through with his family's move from London to California. Along with the move, he decided to take some time off and work out a few things with his family. In July, the family first moved to San Francisco and were in the city during the PGA Championship in August. While Morikawa was winning the major, Francesco was with his kids a couple of miles away at the zoo. Just after that, the family decided to move to an undisclosed location in the Los Angeles area.

2021 Notes: Opened his season by missing the cut at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Before that event, he told the media in Las Vegas that he played as little golf as he ever played in his life. "Mentally, I'm definitely in a very different spot than I was in February or March. I wasn't in a great place with my game back then, and I was low in confidence ... but it was probably in a way a good time for me to take a step away from the game." At the Vivint Houston Open shot 66 in the final round to finish T-15th. It was his first top-15 finish since he was T-14th in the 2019 BMW PGA Championship almost 15 months ago.

Finished the year 23rd in the FedExCup standings and 17th on the money list. Ended 2015 by winning the Franklin Templeton Shootout with partner Jason Dufner in December, highlighted by an 11-under-par 61 in the final round.

2016 Notes: Finished T-3rd and nine strokes behind runaway champion Jordan Spieth at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Lost the following week in a playoff (dropping his playoff record to 2-1) to Fabian Gomez at the Sony Open in Hawaii. In his next start, he won his eighth career PGA Tour event at the Farmers Insurance Open. It was his second win at the tournament, having won previously in 2012. After posting what would be the only under-par final round (three-under 69), he waited nearly 24 hours for the final round to be completed and declared the champion. Despite rain and wind gusts over 45 mph, he carded four birdies against one bogey to post a three-under 69 and was 14-for-14 with the putter from inside 10 feet of the hole. Won his fourth title in California. Marked the first time a player made the cut on the number and went on to win since Carl Pettersson at the 2010 RBC Canadian Open.

Overcame a first-round 75 with rounds of 68-66-65 to finish T-7th at the WGC-Mexico Championship, his best finish in 19 previous World Golf Championships appearances. He finished T-27th at the Masters but hurt his wrist. The injury was described as tenosynovitis, which is inflammation of a tendon. Reports had Snedeker considering surgery at the time, but he decided to rest after finishing T-11th at the RBC Heritage. Took a month off and played at the AT&T Byron Nelson, missing the cut and the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, where he finished T-48th. At the U.S. Open, shot four rounds under par and finished T-9th, eight strokes behind Koepka. The next week, placed T-14th at the Travelers. After that, Snedeker hurt his ribs, and after trying to hit balls at Birkdale, decided not to play. His manager, Mac Barnhardt, told a magazine writer that Snedeker would return home to Nashville and have an MRI. The injury, which was inflamed cartilage between his sternum and rib cage, caused pain on his swing and forced him to withdraw from Canada, Bridgestone and the PGA Championship.

The next week, he entered the final round of the 144th British Open trailing Jason Day, amateur Paul Dunne and Louis Oosthuizen by three, but shot a final-round, six-under 66 (equaling the fifth-lowest score by a champion), then won in a four-hole aggregate playoff over Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman. Improved his playoff record to 4-1 as he finished the four holes at one-under-par, topping 2010 champ Oosthuizen's even-par total and Leishman's two-over tally. In the process, he became the 14th player to win the Masters and the British Open in a career, and the sixth player to win majors at Augusta National and St. Andrews, joining Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo and Sam Snead.

Charles Howell III Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Howell grew up near Augusta National Golf Club and was a member of Augusta Country Club, which is adjacent to Amen Corner. A next-door neighbor was the first person who introduced him to golf at age 7, and he won five tournaments before his 11th birthday. Shot his first sub-70 tournament round at age 10, the same age at which he began taking lessons from instructor David Leadbetter. Was runner-up at the 1996 U.S. Junior Amateur and a semifinalist at the U.S. Junior Amateur in 1993 and '94. Played in five U.S. Amateur Championships.

Capped off his college golf career in 2000 by winning the NCAA Championship in both the team and individual competitions. His rounds of 67-66-63-69 gave him an eight-stroke win. Won the Jack Nicklaus Award for college golfer of the year. Turned professional right after his NCAA win.

In 2000, he earned special temporary member status in only six events after turning professional on June 26. Made the cut in seven of 11 official Tour events.

Since 2001, has earned over $1 million a year, and in five of those years moved past the $2-million mark. His best year was a toss-up between his rookie year in 2002 when he won his first PGA Tour event and earned Rookie of the Year honors with earnings of $2,702,747 to rank 9th on the money list, and 2007, when he won $2,832,091 and finished 18th on the money list, winning his second tour title.

Max Homa Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Homa began playing golf at age 2 when his father, an acting teacher, brought him to the driving range with him. He also played basketball, and is a big fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. Inspired by his good friend David Stroud, who passed away from non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2011. Homa is one of the wittiest and honest pros in the game, which is old news to those who follow him on Twitter, where he has 26,900 followers.

Just three days before qualifying for the U.S. Open, won the 2013 NCAA Men's Golf Individual Championship by three strokes in Woodstock, Ga., and was named first-team All-American 2012-2013, previously named third-team All-American in 2011-2012. Also first-team All-West Region and All-Pac-12 team for the 2012-13 season. Earned medalist honors at the 2013 Pac-12 Championship. Recorded a career 70.80 stroke average, named to Ben Hogan Award watch list, and played on the Walker Cup team at the National Golf Links. Was a major part of UC Berkeley's 2012 Pac-12 Team Championship, named to second-team All-Pac-12 in 2011-12, second-team All-Pac-10 in 2010-2011.

Played in U.S. Amateur in 2010, ?11, ?12, and ?13 and made the quarterfinals in 2010 and round of 32 in 2012. In 2012, he finished second at State Fair Amateur, T-5th at Jones Cup, and T-16th at U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying at Lake Merced, where he missed qualifying by three strokes. In 2011, he won the Silicon Valley Amateur and earned co-medalist honors at John Burns Invitational. Finished T-4th at Players Amateur and T8th at Sunnehanna Amateur.

After the Walker Cup in 2013, turned professional and used up his eight slots on the PGA Tour. In his first professional start, finished T-9th at the Safeway Open and earned $135,000. Played the following week at the Shriners Hospitals and finished T-30th. At the end of the year, went to Korn Ferry Tour qualifying tournament where he finished T-6th, thus getting his Korn Ferry Tour card for 2014.

2014 Notes: He continued pursuing Special Temporary Membership on the PGA Tour in January, but missed four cuts and finished 71st and T-48 in his next six starts. His seventh and last available PGA Tour sponsor exemption came at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April, leaving him with 136 FedExCup points. He needed a total of 278 points to secure Special Temporary Membership, so he turned his attention to the Korn Ferry Tour full time. In his fourth start of the year on that tour, he finished 7th at the South Georgia Classic, was one stroke back going into the final round, but shot 73. Two weeks later, shot a final-round 63 at the BMW Charity Pro-Am to overtake the leaders and win his first title. Homa played in 18 events on the Korn Ferry Tour, and with seven top-25 finishes, he closed the year with $192,350 in earnings, 17th in the rankings, enough to get his PGA Tour card for 2015.

2015 Notes: He played in 27 PGA Tour events, making 12 cuts and had only one top-10 finish, a T-6th at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Missed the FedExCup playoffs after finishing 163rd in the FedExCup standings. In the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, opened with a T-52nd at the Hotel Fitness, then missed two cuts and withdrew from the finale at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. Finished 95th on the Finals money list, so it was back to the Korn Ferry Tour in 2016.

2016 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 21; Rounds Played - 62; In Money - 10; Top-10 Finishes - 2; Scoring Average - 70.26 (rank 65th); Regular Season Money - $155,653 (rank 23rd); Playoff Money - $19,000 (rank 44th), Priority Rank ? 42. He won the Rust-Oleum Championship and with his 23rd-place finish on the money list, he earned a return trip to the PGA Tour for 2017.

2017 Notes: At best, the year was dreadful. In 17 starts, he only made the cut twice: 71st in the Barbasol Championship and 85th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Things were so bad in his last event of the year, the Wyndham Championship, he missed the cut by 15 strokes. He went back to Les Johnson, his swing coach, while he was in college, and they worked on the worst part of his game, hitting fairways.

2018 Notes: After finishing T-7th in the first Korn Ferry Tour event of the year, he struggled. In his next 22 events, he missed half the cuts and didn't finish higher than T-17th at the Panama Championship. He turned the corner in the second round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open. Before the event, he had a tattoo put on his right arm that had the word "relentless." He needed that because he had to birdie his final four holes in Portland's second round to make the cut. If he hadn't, he would have failed to reach the Korn Ferry Tour Finals and had to go to Korn Ferry Tour Q-school to earn back his Korn Ferry Tour status. In the four finals events, he finished T-21st at the Nationwide Children's, T-6th at the DAP Championship, and 7th at the Albertsons Boise Open. He missed the cut at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship, but it didn't matter. He finished 15th on the Korn Ferry Tour Finals money list and was 26th in the final priority ranking, giving him his PGA Tour card for 2019.

2019 Notes: Played in 25 PGA Tour events, making 16 cuts with two top-10 finishes. Was 60th in the FedExCup standings. After a T-60th at the Safeway Open, things didn't look good as he missed his next six cuts. Broke out of the rut with a T-26th finish at the WM Phoenix Open, followed by a T-10th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Coming into the Wells Fargo Championship, Homa was 138th in the FedExCup race and 417th in the Official World Golf Rankings, a serious rise after beginning the year 840th in the rankings. He opened with 69-63 to be a stroke out of the lead and played with Rory McIlroy in the second-to-last Saturday group. Homa shot a 70-67 over the weekend to cruise to a three-stroke win over Joel Dahmen and eight over McIlroy. With the victory, Homa climbed to 35th in the FedExCup rankings and 102nd in the World Rankings, and with the win, will play in the PGA Championship, along with the Masters and the Sentry T of C in 2020. More important, he gets a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour. Going into the Wells Fargo, Homa had $967,555 in official PGA Tour earnings in his 68 PGA Tour starts. He won $1,422,000 at the Wells Fargo, his check for the week was for $454,445 more than his PGA Tour career earnings. In the FedExCup playoffs, was T-38th at the Northern Trust and T-61st at the BMW Championship.

2020 Notes: Played in 21 PGA Tour events, making 14 cuts with four top-10 finishes. Was 70th in the FedExCup standings. Was T-9th at the Farmers Insurance Open and T-6th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, four strokes behind winner Webb Simpson. Was T-5th at the Genesis Invitational, three strokes behind winner Adam Scott, and T-3rd at the 3M Open, three behind winner Michael Thompson. In the FedExCup playoffs, he missed the cut at the Northern Trust and T-59th at the BMW Championship.

Andrew Landry Bio - (C) GOLFstats Inc. 2020

Landry was born in Nederland, Texas, and grew up in Groves, Texas, a small, middle-class suburb of Beaumont. He learned the game at a nine-hole venue four houses away called The Pea Patch, the second-oldest course in the state, described by friends as a goat track with a bar. The course closed in 2015 and is a gated community today. He grew up in a blue-collar family: His dad was a Federal Express courier for 30 years, and his mother was a schoolteacher in town. He played in junior events around the area as his parents didn't have the money to send him around the country on the AJGA circuit.

After graduating from high school, Landry didn't receive any college attention and went to Lamar University playing for Brad McMakin. After a year there, Landry followed McMakin to the University of Arkansas. He was a three-time All-American, won one individual title, and earned the most top-10s in school history. He turned professional after graduating in 2009. Landry played on mini-tours, including the Adams Pro Tour, where he won twice. At the end of 2014, he attended Korn Ferry Tour Q-School, and with rounds of 71-67-67-69-67-68 (20-under), claimed runner-up honors.

2015 Notes: Finished the Korn Ferry Tour season with 23 starts, one win, five top-25s, and 14 cuts made. Was 45th in the final priority-ranking order. Before Landry headed to Cartagena, Columbia, he had only $1,500 in his checking account. He put down $500 on an engagement ring for his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth, then won for the first time with a five-stroke win at the Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship. Shot a final-round, three-under 69 to finish 11 under and take home the $126,000 first-place check. The prize money vaulted him to No. 2 on the money list behind fellow rookie winner Patrick Rodgers after three events. Posted consecutive top-25s in Chile (T-16th), Louisiana (T-23rd) and Mexico (T-23rd). After Louisiana, Landry Monday-qualified into his first PGA Tour event, the Shell Houston Open, in his home state of Texas. Shot rounds of 76-73 and missed the cut. The only top-25 in his final nine regular-season events came at the Nova Scotia Open (T-16th). Finished 21st on the money list to secure his PGA Tour card for 2016. In the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, he made the cut in the first three tournaments, but his best outing of the three was only a T-47th at the opening Hotel Fitness Championship in Fort Wayne. Finished 108th in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.

2016 Notes: Played 18 PGA Tour events, made nine cuts, and had one top-10, a T-8th at the John Deere Classic. Finished the year 178th in the FedExCup standings and couldn't keep his PGA Tour card at the Korn Ferry Tour playoffs. Had a T-6th result at the Servientrega Championship, but the year's highlight came when he qualified for the U.S. Open. Playing his first major and ranked 624th globally, he fired an opening-round 66 to take the lead. After rounds of 71-70 and enduring several rain delays, he went into the final round T-2nd looking to become the first player to win the U.S. Open in his debut since Francis Ouimet in 1913. Closed with an eight-over 78 to finish T-15th.

2017 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 22; In Money - 20; Top-10 Finishes - 8; Scoring Average - 69.26 (rank 5th); Regular Season Money - $292,939 (rank 4th); Finals
