Career Highlights

2008: Led the Champions Tour in Driving Accuracy (80 percent) for the third straight year...Was among the top 10 in three events, all after mid-April...Teamed with Bernhard Langer to place T6 at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. Duo carded a better-ball score of 11-under 61 Saturday in Savannah, the best round of the day. Round was highlighted by his sixth career hole-in-one on the PGA TOUR/Champions Tour. Aced No. 15 when his 6-iron shot from 157 yards found the cup...First individual top 10 of the 2008 campaign came at the U.S. Senior Open in Colorado Springs (T6), thanks to a final-round 67 at The Broadmoor...Added another top 10 in late August when he was T7 at the Boeing Classic near Seattle. 2007: Finished a distant second to Mark McNulty at the JELD-WEN Tradition after being the 54-hole leader and the 36-hole co-leader in Oregon. Shot 7-under 65 Friday, the low round of the event at Crosswater, to take a two-stroke lead at the halfway point. Eventually finished five strokes behind McNulty after carding a final-round 73. Performance in Oregon was his best in a major championship...Was T4 at The Principal Charity Classic in Iowa, where he joined his brother (Danny, T10) in the top 10 for the second straight year. It marked the third time the pair had been top-10 finishers in the same event. They also accomplished the feat at the 2006 Regions Charity Classic...Had the longest streak of consecutive holes without a three-putt on the Champions Tour for the season (263). 2006: Completed an impressive rookie season when he was one of a dozen players to reach the $1 million mark in 2006 earnings when he finished with a career-best $1,191,086. Money figure may have been even more impressive had he not missed the first three months of the season awaiting his 50th birthday. Did not debut until late April at the FedEx Kinko's Classic near Austin...Won his first Champions Tour title in his 11th start on the circuit at the 3M Championship in Minnesota. Victory was his first on TOUR in just over 13 years and came a little over three months after he became eligible for the circuit. Playing in the final group for the third time, fell five shots out of the lead after missing short par putts at the first two holes Sunday but rallied with six birdies over the final 11 holes, two on 40-foot putts, at the TPC Twin Cities to win by two strokes over Craig Stadler and Brad Bryant. Along with Tom Kite, missed just one fairway (41 of 42) in the event...Continued his strong play in next start at the Boeing Greater Seattle Classic, finishing T3. Led all players in Greens in Regulation (46 of 54) and was also tied for first in Driving Accuracy (38 of 42)...Came close to winning a month earlier at the Greater Kansas City Golf Classic. Was the 18- and 36-hole leader but eventually finished second, three strokes back of Dana Quigley, despite shooting a final-round 68. Opened with a Nicklaus GC at LionsGate course-record 63 Friday...Was in the thick of the battle down the stretch at the Walmart First Tee Open at Pebble Beach but made par on each of his last five holes and finished T2 along with Jay Haas, one back of Scott Simpson...Had an impressive debut, finishing fourth at the FedEx Kinko's Classic near Austin in late April, shortly after turning 50. Shared the first-round lead and was only one stroke off the pace after 36 holes. Closing-round, 1-under-par 71 left him four strokes shy of Jay Haas on Sunday...Contended the following week at the Regions Charity Classic. Trailed by two strokes after 36 holes and fired a 5-under-par 67 Sunday to finish alone in third. Joined brother Danny (T6) in the top 10, the first time brothers had done so since Lanny and Bobby Wadkins were T7 at the 2002 Siebel Classic in Silicon Valley...The pair did so again at the Allianz Championship in early June when they each finished T10.
