- .First-team AJGA Rolex Junior All-American in 2009-10
- Two-time state high school champion of Indiana
- Academically ranked third in his class of 582 at Avon High School.
- 2015: Made 12 of 17 PGA TOUR cuts, with two top-10s as a non-member. Earned Special Temporary Membership during the season and parlayed that into a top-125 finish on the FedExCup points list as a non-member to earn PGA TOUR membership for the 2015-16 season
- Earned his first career professional win with a playoff victory over Steve Marino at the Colombia Championship in early February on the Web.com Tour. Rolled in an 8-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole to earn the victory in just his seventh career start. Fired a 6-under 65 in the final round of the weather-plagued tournament to overcome a four-stroke, 54-hole deficit. Birdied five of his first 10 holes to move into contention. Was 15-under and on the 16th fairway when officials halted play (for the third consecutive day) because of dangerous conditions. Returned to the course and promptly birdied No. 16 to reach 16-under. Following a par at No. 17, his tee shot on the par-5 18th went in a hazard that runs down the left side of the hole. Was forced to chip sideways into the fairway and then hit his third-shot wedge to within three feet. Canned the short birdie putt to take the clubhouse lead at 17-under. Watched and waited as Marino, the 54-hole leader, also made a short birdie putt on the final hole of regulation. Both players two-putted for par on the first playoff hole. Knocked his 7-iron inside of 10 feet on the second extra hole to put pressure on Marino, who missed his birdie putt. Victory was worth $144,000 and moved the 22-year old to No. 1 on the money after two weeks of the season
- Would play five more Web.com Tour events, through early May. Finished with seven Tour starts, one win/one top 10, two top 25s and five cuts made. Was 25th on the Tour's "Regular Season 25" money list at season's end but was not replaced by another player in that group of 25 card earners
- Making the most of a sponsor exemption, the 22-year-old closed with a 4-under 68, despite a double bogey-bogey finish to claim a share of second place with Webb Simpson at the Wells Fargo Championship. Notched his first top-10 on TOUR in his 16th start and 13th as a professional. Was not a member of the PGA TOUR but was trying to earn Special Temporary Membership for the remainder of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. Came into the week at Quail Hollow Club with 69 equivalent points. He needed a solo-second-place finish (worth 300 non-member points) to get STM. His T2 finish, worth 245 non-member points, left him 10 points short
- By virtue of his T40 finish at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide three weeks later, picked up enough non-member points to take Special Temporary Membership
- In the Modified Stableford Format at the Barracuda Championship, picked up 15 points in the first round to sit three points behind leader Zack Sucher. Ensuing results of 6-14-11, for a total of 46 points, resulted in a third-place finish.
- Amateur: In three years at Stanford, equaled the all-time school record for wins held by Tiger Woods (11). In addition, he broke Woods' all-time scoring average record, finishing with a career scoring average of 70.32, besting Woods' mark of 70.96. Completed his career at Stanford as a three-time, first-team All-American. During the 2013-14 season at Stanford he won six times, or half of the events he played. Enjoyed a stretch where he won tournament titles in four of five starts. Among the honors he received in 2013 were the Ben Hogan Award, Jack Nicklaus Award and Fred Haskins Award. Was also a two-time Walker Cup team member, Pac-12 Player of the Year and the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year
- Briefly held the lead during the third round at the 2013 John Deere Classic, eventually finishing T15.
