Corey Conners comes to the Fortinet Championship for the fourth time. He debuted with T-30th (70-69-70-74) and improved to T-13th (68-73-72-65) in his last appearance in 2019.

It comes as no surprise given his skill set, but Conners was second in the field in 2019 in total strokes gained off the tee (5.9) and fourth in SG tee to green (8.231). The Canadian was T-3rd in greens in regulation (77.78%).

The 30-year-old out of Kent State made the Tour Championship for the second straight year, finishing 26th in the FedEx Cup.

Conners is still due for his second PGA Tour win and first since 2019.

However, he’s still playing great golf. He’s currently on a streak of six straight made cuts highlighted by T-5th last month at the BMW Championship. Conners posted four top-10s and an 11th, including a run to the semifinals at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

He ranked fifth on the season in per-round SG off the tee (.7), 13th in SG tee to green (1.242), and 18th in total SG (1.143). If Conners can even just climb from outside the top 130 in SG around the green and SG putting to inside the top 100, that could be the difference from being a good player to a great one.

He’ll be representing the International team next week at the Presidents Cup, so Conners will look to get sharp after a disappointing performance in his last time out at East Lake.
