Grass Preference: Unknown

GBC Wind Performance Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
GBC Pressure Rating: ⭐⭐⭐


Adam is a former world number one and Masters winner.  A win at the 2019 Australian PGA saw him end a period of over three years without a win and it was no surprise to see him go on and win the Genesis Invitational on the PGA Tour early in 2020.

Adam is on record as stating he struggled to find the right balance on the course and off the course with the arrival of his second child in August 2017.  A combination of finding this balance and reaching the milestone age of 40 has seen his play improve. He remains a top 50 player after a strong FedEx Cup in 2022 and will be eyeing the majors again in 2023.

Significant info

Adam turned 40 in July 2020.

Significant Quotes

2021 RSM Classic
"I feel like I'm a good driver of the golf ball and when I drive it well, it kind of trickles through the rest of the game, the confidence and the freedoms and all those kind of things."

2021 Wyndham Championship
"I think that quiet head space is a good head space for me just to be calm and ready to play golf because we're trying to play at the highest level. I think, you know, I neglected that kind of, that mental side just for a little bit and the last few months I certainly feel like I've had a better head on my shoulders for it."

2021 The Memorial
"I love Muirfield Village and, you know, he's made some pretty significant changes on some holes and I think it's playing out nicely. New challenges for us to learn. But you would have to do something pretty horrific to mess this golf course up. It's really such a beautiful property and I love playing here all these years, I would love to win it one day."
