Corey Conners Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: | Mon 03 Apr 2023

CANADA'S Corey Conners warmed up for his sixth Masters appearance by winning the Texas Open for a second time.

He shot a bogey-free four-under-par 68 to finish on 15 under, one clear of PGA Tour rookie Sam Stevens who had two eagles in a 66 at TPC San Antonio. Had Stevens won he would have secured a spot at Augusta.

Matt Kuchar birded the last three holes as he hit a 69 to finish joint third on 13 under with Sam Ryder, who had a 66.

"I was really solid all day. It was a battle. The conditions were not easy," said 31-year-old Conners. "It was a battle but a lot of fun. I can't believe I got my second win here."

Conners, whose only other victory came at the same event in 2019, began the day one stroke behind leader Patrick Rodgers, who closed with a 73 to finish fifth on 11 under.

He was made to wait for a good 10 minutes on the final fairway after Stevens, playing in the group in front, hit a wayward second shot to the left of the par-five 18th green.

The American chipped to eight feet but missed the birdie putt, meaning Conners needed a par to win and he did just that despite missing the green with his second shot and chunking his chip onto the green.

Player Profile

Conners was born in Ontario on January 6, 1992. He turned professional in 2015 and in December 2016 qualified for the Web.com Tour. In March 2018, Conners held the 54-hole lead at the Valspar Championship but staggered to a final round of 77. He ended the year in 130th place in the FedEx Cup standings. In October 2018 he finished second at the Sanderson Farms Championship and the following April he won the Texas Open for the first time, earning the final place in The Masters. He was the first Monday qualifier to win on the PGA Tour since Arjun Atwal in 2010.

He continued his strong play into the 2019-2020 season with 10 top-25 finishes and has continued to produce consistent performances. He qualified for the 2020 Olympic Games and made the International Team at the 2022 Presidents Cup.

His victory at the Texas Open in 2023 took him to 18th place in the FedEx Cup standings and 40th in the world rankings.
