Golfer Corey Conners is having himself quite the week.
The Canadian is fresh off of a top 10 finish in Augusta, rounding out his Masters weekend in a tie for sixth place. Conners shot two-under par on the final day of the tournament to close at three-under for the week. It was his third-straight top 10 finish at Augusta National.
He showed off an impressive short game throughout his time in Georgia.

Typically, there could be a bit of a hangover coming off the highs of great performance at golf’s most prestigious event.
Not for Conners.
He’s picked up right where he left off in Augusta, moving on to play in the RBC Heritage tournament down in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

He couldn’t have hit that any better.
The ball takes one big hop before trickling down the green and into the cup. He nonchalantly walks off the incredible shot, giving just a fist pump and a high five to his caddie.
Conners hopes that the string of excellent play continues over the next three rounds of the weekend. As it stands, he sits at five-under par and in a tie for third place with six other golfers. He’s currently three strokes back of leader Cameron Young.
Second round action kicks off on Friday.
