2016 Highlights
  • Advanced to the FedExCup Playoffs for the third consecutive season, making it to the TOUR Championship for the second time. Entered the Playoffs finale in the No. 19 position in the FedExCup standings and finished 26th at East Lake to end his season No. 23 in the FedExCup standings. Recorded 10 top-25 finishes from 27 starts. Of those, three were top-five showings, including his maiden PGA TOUR title
  • In his third start of the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season, had a chance to earn his first PGA TOUR victory at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions. Failed to have a practice round in at Sheshan International Golf Club because he injured his back on Sunday at the CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia a week before. Grabbed the 36-hole lead with rounds of 64-66 and was two in front of eventual-champion Russell Knox heading into the weekend. Posted a 70 in the third round and was tied with Knox for the lead after 54 holes. Struggled most of the final round, but birdied the 72nd hole to finish runner-up for his fourth second-place showing since April of last season
  • Opened with the first-round lead at The RSM Classic with a bogey-free 7-under 65, then followed with rounds of 67-64-64 to finish with a tournament-record 22-under 260, winning on the PGA TOUR for the first time by a tournament-record six strokes over Kevin Chappell. Previously, one shot (three times) was the largest margin of victory at Sea Island to go with two playoffs. The win marked the sixth out of the first seven of the 2015-16 season to be won by a first-time winner, with OHL Classic at Mayakoba champion Graeme McDowell the exception. Collected 500 points for the win (which came in his 109th career PGA TOUR start at the age of 31 years, 9 months, 7 days) to lead the FedExCup Standings through the fall series. Other highlights of the week included an opening 54-hole total of 196, marking the lowest 54-hole score at the event. With the victory, became 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. Began the week by "coaching” the PGA TOUR players to a 7-6 victory over their wives Tuesday night in the annual PGA TOUR Wives Association Wiffle Ball Classic
  • Finished ninth at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in his first appearance at the winners-only event. The showing was good enough to hold the No. 1 ranking in the FedExCup. Played with eventual-champion Jordan Spieth in the final pairing on Saturday
  • Maintained his lead in the FedExCup with a T5 finish at the Sony Open in Hawaii, his fourth consecutive top-10 finish of the season. Finished five strokes behind champion Fabian Gomez following a final-round even-par 70. Held a five-way share of the first-round lead with a 7-under 63 and after matching middle rounds of 4-under 66, was paired in Sunday's final group just one behind co-leaders Zac Blair and Brandt Snedeker
  • Carded a final-round 4-under 66 to finish T10 and nine strokes behind champion Jordan Spieth at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational. It marked his second consecutive top-10 at Colonial, having finished T5 the year before
  • Picked up his sixth top-10 of the season at the Wyndham Championship, finishing T10. Posted six birdies, one eagle and a bogey (at the last) to close with a 63. Tied his career-best six top-10s in a season.
