Secured his PGA TOUR card for the 2018-19 season by finishing second in the Finals 25 money list and was fourth in the final priority-ranking order. Entered the 2018-19 PGA TOUR Season on a Major Medical Exemption after serving a mandatory two-year military commitment in South Korea, with 10 starts available to earn 295 points to equal No. 125 on the 2017-18 FedExCup points list (Seamus Power/377).
