Corey Conners has established himself as Canada's best player, winning twice on the PGA Tour and contending for Major titles.
Conners made his PGA Tour breakthrough in the 2019 Texas Open, then won the same event again in April.
Augusta National has been the scene of some magnificent golf from Conners. He was tenth in the 2020 Masters, then eighth the following year and sixth in 2022, earning a reputation as a serious threat for the famous Green Jacket.
Conners reached a career-high 25th place in the world rankings after last year's Tour Championship, then he finished 12th in the US PGA Championship. His rock-solid tee-to-green game makes him an ideal candidate for Major success.
The Florida-based Ontario man is competing in the Tour Championship again this week, then will expect to be part of the Internationals side in the Presidents Cup next year.

Conners was born in little Listowel, Ontario, a town of around 8,000 people. Recently he moved to Jupiter, Florida, which is a popular base for successful PGA Tour professionals.
Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas are among those who Conners has as neighbours.
Conners has banked more than $18 million on the PGA Tour.
The estimated net worth of Conners is $5 million. It is difficult to calculate with his sponsorship deals kept secret.
Danny Sahl has been Conners' regular caddie from the start of 2021 onwards. He went to the same college as Conners (Kent State) and was a good player in his own right. He used to caddie for another Canadian legend - Mike Weir.
Conners uses a full set of PING clubs. He employs a Titleist Pro V1 ball. He wears FootJoy shoes.
Conners has played in one previous Presidents Cup (2022) and it did not go well for him. Partnering Sungjae Im in the opening foursomes, they suffered defeat to Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.
Alongside fellow Canadian Taylor Pendrith, Conners lost his first fourballs match to Billy Horschel and Max Homa.
A repeat foursomes fixture on the Saturday with a buzzing Spieth and Thomas ended in an emphatic defeat, then a week of misery was completed for Conners when he lost his singles contest to Xander Schauffele.
With an Internationals debut behind him, Conners will expect to perform better next time.
Once the Tour Championship concludes, Conners is likely to have a break from professional golf.
He may choose to return in the Fortinet Championship in the middle of September, or wait until later in the year.
