The affable Chicagoland native demonstrated his firepower with a career-low, final-round 60 at the Emerald Coast Classic at Sandestin in March, refusing to abandon focus despite teeing off in Sunday’s first group. The resultant T17 finish marked 13 top-25s in 26 starts for the University of Illinois standout, as he eyes his first TOUR card via the combined season. The 25-yearold also made waves on TOUR as a Monday qualifier during the Korn Ferry Tour’s offseason, with made cuts at the Sony Open in Hawaii (T14) and Waste Management Phoenix Open (T42). Hardy’s earliest golf memory is receiving a golf ball from Billy Andrade in Tucson, and his trend line suggests that he’ll be making plenty of memories for fans in the coming years.

Nick Hardy teed off in Sunday’s opening group at the Emerald Coast Classic at Sandestin Resort Raven Golf Course in April and posted a course record 60.
