Did you know?

Born in South Carolina, Kisner attended college across the state border at the University of Georgia, where he and the "Bulldogs" golf team won the 2005 NCAA Division I championship. His teammates, Chris Kirk, Richard Scott and Brendon Todd also became touring professional golfers.

Turning professional in 2006, Kisner had to wait until 2015 for his breakthrough win on the PGA Tour ... during that year, he recorded three losses in playoffs and four runner-up finishes before stepping into the winners' circle in November at the RSM Classic.
