Wyndham Clark. PlayersChampionship/PowerRank/8Clark. 8. OWGR: 5th. FedEx Cup: 2nd

Wyndham Clark has been a bit hit or miss so far in 2024, but his highs are hard to ignore.

The reigning U.S. Open champion picked off his third career PGA Tour victory when he was declared champion at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am after 54 holes due to inclement weather.

Clark performed well at another Signature Event last week where he took solo second at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Posting four rounds under par in major championship-like conditions at Bay Hill was no small feat. Clark recorded 71-66-71-70 (-10) and may have been champion had Scottie Scheffler not put on a clinic.

Clark overpowered the course to rank fourth in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee (3.898). He was also fourth in SG: Putting (4.885).

“I'm super pleased. Obviously coming up short's always a bummer. I have not always loved this golf course and haven't played well here and I said to myself this week, even coming into the weekend, even in a good spot, a top 5 or top 10 here would just be a huge for me,” Clark was transcribed by ASAP Sports. “So I think it's just a testament to where my game's at and how much I've grown.”

Clark ranks ninth on the PGA Tour in SG: Total (1.329). He’s gaining strokes in every category and is top-40 in all except for Around-the-Green.

The former Oregon Duck is making his fifth appearance at the Players Championship.

Clark’s debut wasn’t the memorable moment he hoped for. He was disqualified in 2019 for signing an incorrect scorecard. He shot 81 and signed for an 80.

He improved to a first-round 73 in 2020, but we all know what happened to the tournament after that.

Clark MC’d again in 2021 and 2022 before breaking through for T-27th last year.

The big hitter did well at more of a precision and course management test, posting 69-73-69-72.
