Davis Riley Career
Davis Riley began his professional career in the year 2019. He plays from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, in the United States. In the 2020-21 Korn Ferry Tour, he finished in the Top 50. (thru 2021-22). At the Oaks, he won the 2020 Panama Championship and the TPC San Antonio Championship. Among his triumphs is the Sony Open in Hawaii in 2022. (Round 1) The Butterfield Bermuda Championship will be held in 2022. He did finish T-7 in the Bermuda Championship last fall, but to say he has a 54-hole lead is an understatement. In terms of NeSmith, he played 45 holes at the Valspar before making a bogey, and he looked nearly as hot on the front nine as he did on Friday. However, when he lost his touch, he really lost it, making four bogeys on the back nine en way to a 37.

In the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index, he finished the year ranked 53rd nationally, having played in nine tournaments and finishing in the top-10 three times. He also competed in the 2016 US Amateur Championship, matching Matt Kuchar’s course record of 64 in the final round of stroke play at Oakland Hills Country Club’s North Course.
