Berger posted top-eight finishes in both the U.S. Open and Open in 2021 and was one of Steve Stricker’s six wild cards for September’s Ryder Cup victory.

Fell out of the game’s leading 150 at the end of 2019. but made it back into the top 15 with a fine run that included two more PGA Tour victories. 

He captured last June’s Charles Schwab Challenge, the first event to be staged after the Covid-19 lockdown in America, and then added the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-am, which he sealed with a closing 65.

Father Jay reached seventh on the tennis world rankings in 1990 and went on to become coach to the American team. Daniel shone at golf, though, and while at Florida State University he tied for second in the 2013 collegiate championship.

He lost a play-off to Padraig Harrington for the 2015 Honda Classic after starting the final round nine behind Ian Poulter and was voted Rookie of the Year that season.

His first PGA Tour success came the following June at the FedEx St Jude Classic and a year later he made a successful defence and earned a Presidents Cup debut, where his singles win over Si-woo Kim took the United States over the winning line en route to a 19-11 victory.
