Birdied the last hole to get into a five-way playoff with winner Phil Mickelson, Arjun Atwal, Rich Beem and Jose Maria Olazabal. Eliminated on first extra hole when approach shot to the 18th hole found the water and he could not get up and down for par. The $330,000 check gave him $430,130 through six events, allowing him to remain in the Major Medical Extension category for the remainder of the season. Recorded third career runner-up finish at The International, one point behind Retief Goosen in the Modified Stableford scoring system format. Forced to play 36 holes Sunday, grabbed the 54-hole lead with 12 points in the first 18 holes. In the final 18 holes, came up short to finish with 31 points.
