STORY: Wire-to-wire winner of the 2016 RSM Classic as a PGA Tour rookie.
Golf wasn't a year-round sport growing up in Canada. I learned to play on a short course at my home club, Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club, in Ontario. My parents were beginners, too, and we all started together.
I was ready to spend my first year on tour learning the courses and establishing my routine. Winning was great, but it definitely changes your expectations on the fly.
