Roll of Honour

Ryder Cup player (2018, '21). Presidents Cup player (2019). PGA Tour winner.

Did you know?

Six-foot four-inch (1.93 m) Finau could have played top-flight college basketball, but choose instead to sign-up to golf's professional ranks at the age of 17. He honed his skills on various mini-tours before moving onto the Web.com tour in 2015, and a year later the full PGA Tour.

His first PGA Tour win came after a playoff at the Puerto Rico Open in 2016. An excellent run of form in the 2018 majors and in the FedEx Cup playoff events saw Finau rewarded with a Captain's Pick for the USA Ryder Cup team.
