Mackenzie Hughes

It is funny how things can all of a sudden snowball and change one's life. In July 2016, Hughes was struggling on the Web.com Tour and it looked like he was going to lose his card and have to start all over again. Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, he had dreamed of being a great hockey player and one day playing in the National Hockey League (NHL). But his dreams changed at age 7 when his parents brought him to a driving range instead of letting him stay at home with the babysitter, and he became hooked on golf. He got very good at it, was a standout college and amateur player, winning the 2011 and '12 Canadian Amateur Championships and attending Kent State University. He turned professional in 2013 and proved his game was ready by qualifying for the MacKenzie Canadian Tour. In his eighth start, he won the Cape Breton Classic. That victory, along with a runner-up and a thirrd-place finish, helped him win the order of merit and move on to the Web.com Tour, one step closer to the PGA Tour.
Things faltered for Hughes on the Web.com Tour in 2014. In 20 starts, he made seven cuts and only finished inside the top-50 twice (best was T-46th, Albertsons WinCo Foods Portland Open). So it was back to the Mackenzie Tour for 2015, where he proceeded to make all of his cuts and record three top-10 finishes, the best a T-3rd at the ATB Financial Classic. His 13th-place finish on the order of merit secured an exemption into the second stage of Web.com qualifying. He reached the finals and finished T-21st, just barely getting him a card for 2016.
2016 Notes: Hughes started slowly again, and when he missed his eighth cut of the year (out of 13 starts) at the Air Capital Classic, things looked bad. He was 140th on the money list and really struggling.
Hughes had a week off and worked hard on his game, finding his putting stroke. He wasn't a poor putter, but he was streaky and inconsistent. He was able to find a comfortable stance and grip and felt much better with the putting stroke. At the Lecom Health Challenge, he played a great final three rounds and finished T-5th, his best career finish on the Web.com Tour. Five events later, at the Price Cutter Charity, he got hot and with a birdie at his 72nd hole, was able to edge out Richy Werenski by one shot and win his first Web.com Tour event. He climbed to 14th on the money list and was able to play well enough in the playoffs to finally make it onto the PGA Tour. The timing couldn't have been better because he had been going out for the last six years with Jenna Shaw and they had made plans to wed on October 22nd in Charlotte, N.C. They had planned all along to play the rest of the fall schedule and then have their honeymoon in Thailand after the RSM Classic. There, he defeated three others in a playoff. The victory didn't change their honeymoon plans, but it allowed the couple to splurge even more. The victory did change his travel plans for 2017. He was able to play an extra week in Hawaii at the SBS Tournament of Champions and also added an April trip to Augusta, Ga. for the Masters. His win at Sea Island also made it easier for MacKenzie to have Jenna join him on tour, and they made plans to travel together for the rest of the season.
2017 Notes: Played in 31 events in his rookie season, making 22 cuts. Was in the top-10 twice, won the RSM Classic beating four players in a three-hole playoff. Finished T-10th in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He was 36th in the FedExCup race.
2018 Notes: Had a tough start to his year missing his first eight starts and 13 of his first 15. Best finish T-42nd at the Fort Worth Invitational.
