The first at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia, where he successfully defended his title, and the second at last week’s SBS Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, which featured an elite field of champions of 2016.

The 23 year old is renowned for his all around game and more so for his length and accuracy off the tee. The Titleist ambassaor used a full set of Titleist clubs for all his tour victories and recently hit two drives of over 400 yards at Kapalua. Take a look:
