2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
A pair of 63s to open the Ellie Mae Classic in early August foreshadowed what was to come for NeSmith during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, as he went on to fire a seven-under 64 during the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open and win the event by one stroke while locking up a PGA Tour card for the first time. NeSmith has made five career starts at the PGA Tour level, though he's missed the cut in each attempt and was unable to break 70 in all 10 rounds. He led the entire KFT in GIR percentage throughout the 2019 season, however, and NeSmith also ranked 11th in total driving. Read Past Outlooks
T49 at Charles Schwab Challenge
June 14, 2020
NeSmith closed with an even-par 70 on Sunday at the Charles Schwab Challenge to finish three-under and tied for 49th.
The highlight of NeSmith's week at Colonial CC came during Friday's second round when he holed out from 128 yards out of a fairway bunker for eagle on the par-4 17th hole, ultimately ensuring his 10th made cut of the season. The rookie will remain at 64th in the FedEx Cup standings with his T49 result, and he's now slated to make his RBC Heritage debut at Harbour Town this week. At the Charles Schwab Challenge, NeSmith ranked just T61 in GIR percentage, but he was 31st in SG: Approach and gained over two strokes putting.
