Noah Goodwin

Fortinet Cup Points List: 3

Best Finish: Won (Sotheby’s International Realty Canada Ontario Open, GolfBC Championship)

Goodwin began his professional golf career with a lot of hype. After all, he’s one of only five golfers to win back-to-back AJGA Rolex Junior Player of the Year honors and has represented his country on multiple occasions, including at the 2016 Junior Ryder Cup and the 2017 Junior Presidents Cup.

The SMU and PGA TOUR University standout got off to a slow start in Canada, missing three of the first four cuts to begin his season—at the Royal Beach Victoria Open, ATB Classic and the Osprey Valley Open.

“[Missing the cut at the Osprey Valley Open] came at the perfect time for me mentally,” Goodwin said of his slow PGA TOUR Canada start. “Me and my dad took a few days afterwards and took our minds completely off of golf, and we had a blast. It reminded me how easy it is to get fixated on the negative parts of the game and made me realize that any day I get to play golf is still a really good day.”

The second half of the season proved much better for Goodwin as he became one of only two players to win twice in 2022—a wire-to-wire victory at the Sotheby’s International Realty Canada Ontario Open and the GolfBC Championship in Kelowna, British Columbia. His third-place Fortinet Cup Points List finish also earned him a trip back to Canada next summer for the PGA TOUR’s RBC Canadian Open.
