  • Recorded his first top-10 of the season at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia (T10), marking his second top-10 showing at the tournament in as many starts
  • Finished T9 at The RSM Classic for his third top-10 in six starts at the Davis Love III-hosted event. It marked his fourth finish of T17 or better in his first five starts to open the 2015-16 campaign
  • Shared the first-round lead at the Valspar Championship and went on to finish T5 for his fourth top-10 at the event
  • With a T7 at the Shell Houston Open, surpassed total number of top-10s from the 2014-15 season, bringing his season total to four. Tied for seventh with Chez Reavie and Kyle Reifers for his third top-10 in 12 starts in the event
  • With matching 4-under 66s on the weekend, finished T4 at the AT&T Byron Nelson and just two strokes out of the Sergio Garcia-Brooks Koepka playoff. It marked his second top-10 at the event, with both coming in the last three years (T3 in 2014)
