OWGR: 78th. FedEx Cup: 55th. Davis Riley. 2024CanadianOpen/PowerRank/10. 10

That’s one way to bust out of a slump.

Davis Riley secured his first top 10 since February 2023 by winning last week’s Charles Schwab Challenge.

Not only that, but he won it by five shots ahead of world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler and another past major champion, Keegan Bradley.

Riley appeared to be running away with it on Saturday building a commanding lead at Colonial. Scheffler inevitably made a charge, but Riley withstood it to win his second career PGA Tour title and first individually. Riley won the 2023 Zurich Classic of New Orleans alongside Nick Hardy.

Riley is a Mississippian who went to the University of Alabama, but it felt like a home game for the Dallas/Fort Worth resident.

He got the job done with scores of 66-64-66-70. This result changes the entire trajectory of his season, getting him into the last two majors and last two Signature Events.

He was second in the field at Colonial in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green (7.869), fourth in SG: Putting (5.921), and sixth in SG: Off-the-Tee (3.658).

“I've been kind of looking to try to get some momentum this year,” Riley was transcribed by ASAP Sports. “It's been a slower start to the year than I've been wanting and obviously this helps a lot, catapulting me in the right direction…”

Despite Riley’s struggles in 2024, he’s immensely talented. He was an elite collegiate player who went on to nearly win as a PGA Tour rookie at the 2022 Valspar Championship.

This will be Riley’s maiden voyage to both Hamilton and the RBC Canadian Open.
