At Florida State University, Berger won the SunTrust Gator Invitational and the Seminole Intercollegiate in 2013. He also was the leader of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and tied for second at the 2013 NCAA Golf Championships as a sophomore.
Honors he received that year were as follows:
First-team All-American by Golf Coaches Association of America and Golfweek.
PING All-Region team.
Following his sophomore year at FSU, Berger turned professional. He played on the Web.com professional tour and then switched to the PGA. Berger’s PGA Tour wins occurred in 2016, 2017, 2020, and 2021.
2015 was a successful rookie year for Berger in the PGA. He had six finishes in the top ten (including two second-place finishes). No other rookie made the PGA Tour championship field that September. Berger was 11th in the FedEx Cup rankings, 25th for earnings at over $3 million, and received PGA Rookie of the Year.
In 2016, Berger played in and won the FedEx St. Jude Classic, a win that he repeated the following year. And in June 2020, Berger won the Charles Schwab Challenge, which netted him a $1.375 million payday.
