    Todd started out on his golfing life as a junior, when he played at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, North Carolina, as well as at Green Hope High School. Todd achieved some success during his junior golfing career with wins at the North Carolina High School 4A classification individual championship. Todd won this event during his freshman, junior and senior years at high school. After high school, Todd studied at the University of Georgia, where he was All-American four times in total.

    After turning professional in 2007, Todd joined the Nationwide Tour the following year. He has a reasonably successful season, achieving a win at the Utah Championship, and finishing the season in nineteenth place on the money list. His success lead to him earning a place on the PGA Tour for the following season.

    Todd’s first season on the PGA Tour was less successful, as he made the cut in only five of twenty one starts, and failed to earn his card for 2010. This meant that Todd spent 2010 and 2011 back playing on the Nationwide Tour, before regaining his PGA Tour status at qualifying school. This meant that Todd played the 2012 season on the PGA Tour, where he finished in the top one hundred and fifty on the money list, which meant he maintained conditional status, and also had full Tour status.

    While playing on the Tour in 2013, Todd won his second ever event on the tour, the 2013 Stadion Classic at UGA. At the end of the season Todd finished in twentieth place on the Tour money list, earning him his card for the 2014 PGA Tour.

    While playing on this Tour, Todd won his first PGA Tour event, at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. This win meant that he secured a two year tour exemption, as well as a place at the Masters in 2015. This wasn’t the end of Todd’s success for the season, he also tied for fifth place at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial; a result which meant that he moved into the top sixty of the world rankings. He also earned a place at the US Open, where he eventually finished in seventeenth place.

    As of the end of 2014, Todd had achieved one win on the PGA Tour, amassing prize money of $4,548,103.
