Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., took a large stride forward in his career by winning the Price Cutter Charity Challenge in August, his first Web.com Tour victory vaulting him from 63rd to 16th on the money list at that point.
With the top 25 earning graduation to the PGA Tour, Silverman finished 10th to take the next step in his career. He chatted with Hutch here about getting his tour career started.
In the early going, Silverman has looked comfortable in his new environment. In his first five events, he has a couple of top-10 finishes, including a T7 at the Sanderson Farms Championship and a T8 at the RSM Classic.
Silverman, who will serve as captain of the Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada team at the upcoming Aruba Cup against PGA Tour Latinoamerica, talked with Hutch about his experience thus far on the PGA Tour. You can listen to that here.
Silverman is one of six Canadians playing regularly on the PGA Tour. Adam Hadwin, Graham DeLaet, Mackenzie Hughes and Nick Taylor all finished in the top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings. Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., made it through the Web.com Tour Finals to secure his status on the PGA Tour, as well.
David Hearn finished just outside the top 125, but will get several starts in the coming year.
