He nearly grabbed his first PGA Tour win at the Honda Classic, but Luke List’s effort in a playoff against reigning Player of the Year Justin Thomas fell just short. Nevertheless, the long-hitting List seems ready to take the next step in professional golf.List was runner-up to Ryan Moore in the 2004 U.S. Amateur and earned a Master’s invitation the following year, where he finished in a tie for 33rd place. He turned pro in 2007 and made it to what is now known as the Web.com Tour in 2010, and in 2013 he was a rookie on the PGA Tour. However, he failed to keep his card and it was three years later before he finally rejoined the big tour for good.The playoff loss to Thomas was List’s second runner-up finish in his career and the seventh top-10. List is a regular in the top-10 in driving distance, which gives him the potential to compete anywhere at anytime. He seems poised to finally reach the potential that many saw in him during his days at Vanderbilt University.
