Amateur careerEdit

List was born in Seattle, Washington. He was the runner-up at the 2004 U.S. Amateur to Ryan Moore, finishing 2 down. With his runner-up finish he was extended an invitation to play in the 2005 Masters, in which he finished T33 and recorded an ace during the Par 3 Contest held on Wednesday. He won the Jones Cup Invitational in 2005. He went to high school at Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2007 and turned professional.

Professional careerEdit

List joined the Nationwide Tour in 2010. He recorded four top-10 finishes during his first two years on Tour. He finished 38th on the money list in 2011 and led the tour in eagles. List won his first professional event on April 29, 2012 at the South Georgia Classic on the Nationwide Tour. The following week, List had a chance to win the Stadion Classic at UGA when he held a one shot lead over Hudson Swafford heading to the final hole of the tournament. But he bogeyed the hole while Swafford birdied it, and List finished in a tie for second.

In 2012 he finished 4th on the Nationwide money list, and was promoted to the PGA Tour. In 2013, he finished 163rd in the FedEx Cup and lost his status. He also finished 1st in driving distance, with an average of 306.3 yards per drive for the season.

In 2014, he finished 119th on the Tour. However, he still retained status from his 2012 win,[2] and finished 64th in 2015, earning a place in the Tour Finals. There he finished 22nd (excluding the regular season top 25) to narrowly earn a place on the PGA Tour for 2015-16.[3]

In March 2018, List lost in a sudden-death playoff at the Honda Classic to Justin Thomas. He lost to birdie on the first extra hole, after missing the green in two to the right. This was however List's best result to date on the PGA Tour.[4]

List finished T4 in the 2018 Safeway Open to start the 2018-2019 season strongly.


List is married to Chloe Kirby List. They have one child and reside in Augusta, Georgia.
