Plays his first Open Championship thanks to a tie for seventh at June’s RBC Canadian Open.
Two spots were up for grabs as part of the Qualifying Series, but top six Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Sam Burns, Justin Rose and Corey Conners already had places at St Andrews.
That finishing position was something of a disappointment as he led after an opening 63 and still had the chance of a first PGA Tour victory entering the final round. The nearest he has come to that was the 2020 Bermuda Championship, where a closing 65 left him tied with Brian Gay, who birdied the last hole and then did it again when they went into sudden death.
Was twice Colorado state amateur champion before turning professional in 2017. Was a teammate of Bryson DeChambeau in the 2014 Palmer Cup match at Walton Heath between the top college players of the United States and Europe, whose line-up included Jon Rahm.
They face each other in the concluding singles with Rahm coming out on top 4&3. Has since reached a high of 124th on the world rankings, but Canada was his first top 10 finish since February last year.
