With the 2022-23 PGA Tour season wrapping up in a couple of weeks, here’s how former Texas Longhorn men’s golfers fared on the course this year.


Scottie Scheffler

The Official World Golf No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler had a tremendous season. In 23 events played, the Dallas product had 17 top 10 finishes, two runner-up appearances and two wins. In February, he won the WM Phoenix Open for the second year in a row, winning by two strokes. A month later, Scheffler came away victorious in THE PLAYERS Championship after dominating the field en route to a five-stroke win. He also represented the United States in the 2023 Ryder Cup.


Jordan Spieth

Fellow Dallas native Jordan Spieth also had a solid year on the PGA Tour. The No. 14 golfer in the OWGR had his ups and downs throughout the year but still managed to earn seven top 10 finishes in 22 events. Spieth played well at the Masters Tournament, settling a tie for fourth place. His best performance came at the RBC Heritage, where he lost a heartbreaker to Matt Fitzpatrick in a playoff after winning the event the year before. Spieth teamed up with Scheffler at the Ryder Cup for the United States as well. 


Beau Hossler

After a rough start, Beau Hossler played well in the back nine of the season. After failing to make the cut in six of his first 16 starts, Hossler came in third place at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. This past weekend at the ZOZO Championship in Japan, Hossler played his best golf of the year and finished tied for second with Eric Cole.  


Doug Ghim

Fifth-year pro Doug Ghim made more cuts than he missed this year, along with five top 25 finishes. His best three-event stretch came when he finished within the top 20 at the AT&T Byron Nelson, RBC Canadian Open and Travelers Championship, respectively. 


Kramer Hickok

Golfing out of Austin, 31-year-old Kramer Hickok competed in 31 events this season, collecting three top 25 results. He performed well at The Honda Classic in February, shooting a 274 in a tie for 14th effort. 


Dylan Frittelli

Veteran Dylan Frittelli played surprisingly well at this year’s WM Phoenix Open, where he tied for 14th place despite shooting a 74 in the first round. The South African’s best result came in his second event at the Sanderson Farms Championship as he finished in a tie for 13th.  


Jhonattan Vegas

The oldest active former Longhorn on the PGA Tour at 39 years old, Jhonattan Vegas only competed in seven events over the course of the season. He made the most of them, however, rounding out three top 25 finishes.  


Coody Brothers

After helping lead Texas to a NCAA Men’s Golf Championship in 2022, brothers Parker and Pierceson Coody both earned their PGA Tour cards for the 2024 season. Pierceson obtained his card earlier in the year, but Parker wasn’t too far behind as he secured his invite in early October at the AdventHealth Championship in Kansas City. The twins become the second set of brothers to have a PGA Tour card simultaneously, joining Allan and Curtis Strange in 1981.
