The next accolade on Viktor Hovland's ever-growing résumé is the cover of Golf Digest, which allowed us to chat via WebEx with the 23-year-old after our recent cover shoot at his home course, Karsten Creek, in Stillwater, Okla.

What it's like being on the cover of Golf Digest? "Pretty cool," he agreed. "It's the first time I've been on the cover of anything."

Hovland reflects on his day shooting with us and also details what he has been working on with his game. He's very confident after adding length off the tee, improving his long iron game and making strides in his short game.
