Family and Early Life
Conners was born on January 6th, 1992 in Listowel Ontario, Canada. He developed an interest in sports at a very young age. His grandparents lived next door to a house that was well-groomed putting green in the backyard.
Conners loved to visit and swim in their swimming pool and peep through the green ground as much as he could. Surprisingly the home belonged to his future wife Malory. At the time he had not noticed her but only had an eye for golf. He attended high school in Listowel and proceeded to Kent State University.
Conners started playing golf at the age of 15. One of his legendry countrymen Moe Norman helped him to pursue the game. Norman, who passed away in 2004 at the age of 75, met Conners one day at his home course. The two chatted for a while and Norman gifted Conners with a customized driver with a more flexible shaft than the one he was using.
He won the Pre-teen national title using the driver he was gifted in his bag. Unfortunately, Norman passed away before Conners thanked him for the gift. Conners also won the 2010 Ontario Amateur and was selected to join Golf Canada’s national team at the age of 17 and later joined the men’s team the following year. He was the runner-up to Gunn- Yang in the 2014 U.S Amateur at the Atlanta Athletic Club.
Conners took part in the 2015 Masters Tournament but missed the cut. He turned professional after the event and played the RBC Canadian Open in 2016. He tied for the 42nd at the Web.com Tour qualifying tournament and earned an entry into the Web.com Tour in 2017. In 2018 he finished second in the PGA Tour’s Sanderson Farms Championship and won $475 200. He won the PGA Tour’s Valero Texas Open in April 2019.
He played in a Monday qualifying event and earned the final spot after a six-man playoff. He became the first Monday qualifier to win on a PGA Tour since 2010. He later took part in the Northern Trust and the BMW Championship which secured him a spot at the Tour Championship.
