2020-21 Season Highlights


PGA TOUR
U.S. Open - Won the September U.S. Open by six strokes over Matthew Wolff, earning his first major championship title and seventh win on the PGA TOUR. 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. Began the season with a win in his first start for the second time in his career (first: 2018-19 season). Marked the first major championship victory by a former Southern Methodist University 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). Shriners Hospitals for Children Open - Finished T8 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, his fourth consecutive top-10 at the event. Shot a first-round 62 to take a one-stroke lead, the second 18-hole lead/co-lead of his career (fell to 0-for-2). Led the field in Driving Distance (363.1 yards). Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard - Earned his eighth career PGA TOUR title and second of the season, winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard by one stroke over Lee Westwood. Became the first multiple winner of the season. Led the field in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (1.761 per round) and Driving Distance (321.3 yards). Hit two drives of at least 370 yards on No. 6, the first drives hit longer than 360 yards on that hole during the ShotLink era (est. 2003). Was the only player in the field to record four under-par scores. THE PLAYERS Championship - Finished T3 at THE PLAYERS Championship, earning his first top-10 in three starts at the event. Played in the final group with Lee Westwood after doing so at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard; the pair became the first to play in the final group in consecutive PGA TOUR events since Adam Scott and Vijay Singh in 2007.

Personal


  • The physics major has been nicknamed by many, the Mad Scientist. Credits Homer Kelly's book, The Golfing Machine, for many of his swing principles and philosophies. Utilizes an unconventional approach of all of his irons being the same length, 37 1/2 inches, which is the average length of a 7-iron shaft (his favorite club). Has names for all of his clubs, for example his 60-degree wedge is named "The King" after 1960 Masters champion Arnold Palmer and his 6-iron is named "Juniper" after the sixth hole at Augusta National.
  • Wears a Ben Hogan-style cap during tournament rounds on the PGA TOUR.
