2016 was Colt’s best year so far as a professional golfer; he had two Top-3 finishes occurring at the Barracuda Championship and The Players Championship. This was backed up with a T4 finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson and 8 Top-25’s. He finished off his season ranked 79th in the FedEx Cup rankings with 803 points.

 

Colt has completed his rehabilitation from a wrist injury suffered early in 2017, only competing in 15 events from 2017-2018. Colt is looking forward to returning to normal play in the 2019 season.
