Cam Davis has never missed a cut in four appearances at TPC Summerlin.

The 28-year-old Aussie is playing some of the best golf of his life. That’s why I see him making the leap from good performances at the Shriners Children’s Open to great.

Davis is up to a career-high No. 44 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Four top-10s in his last five starts has a lot to do with it. He comes into this week well-rested after a few weeks off since his solo third at the Fortinet Championship to start the FedEx Cup Fall.

He’s a one-time career PGA Tour winner and has done just about everything but hoist a trophy in 2023. Davis had a brief slump in late spring, but otherwise has been very consistent.

He capped a good 2022-23 season by placing T-6th at the FedEx St. Jude Championship to qualify for the BMW Championship.

Davis’ results at the Shriners include T-28th (70-68-68-67) in 2018, T-52nd (65-69-70-70) in 2020, T-27th (67-68-71-66) in 2021, and T-37th (67-66-68-71) last year.

He’s got room to improve with the putter. Davis is strong in all other facets.

He ranked 41st in total strokes gained per round (.655). He was 16th in SG off-the-tee (.51) and 23rd tee-to-green (.86) last season.

Davis can crush the ball, ranking 27th in driving distance (310.2). This is a week where that advantage doesn’t carry as much weight as normal. In this day and age, though, hitting the long ball helps almost every week on the PGA Tour to some extent.
