The left-hander’s best major finish came in the 2017 U.S Open. He led by one with a round to go at Erin Hills, but was then overtaken by Brooks Koepka.
That same season saw him win the Wells Fargo Championship and by the following January he stood a career-high 20th in the world.
Was 2003 U.S junior champion and suffered only one defeat at the 2005 and 2009 Walker Cups. His first PGA Tour victory was in the 2014 John Deere Classic, which gave him the final exempt spot in The Open at Hoylake a week later. Finished joint 26th there.
Tied for third at last year’s Players Championship two strokes behind winner Justin Thomas and two weeks later was a quarter-finalist in the WGC-Dell Match Play, where he beat Masters champions Bubba Watson and Hideki Matsuyama.
He was also only one shot behind halfway leader Justin Rose at Augusta last season, but slipped back to joint 12th.
A month later, however, his place at Sandwich was secure as a member of the world’s top 50 and the rankings have brought him another call-up this time.
