PGA TOUR Best Round

75 at Round 1, Masters Tournament.

Champions Tour Highlights

Made a strong bid for his first Champions Tour victory at the Toshiba Classic before eventually finishing T2 along with Joey Sindelar, one stroke short of Eduardo Romero. Was tied for the 36-hole lead at Newport Beach CC with Bernhard Langer. Held sole possession of lead at the turn Sunday. However, played the back nine in even-par and slipped back. Performance in front of local fans in Newport Beach matched his best effort on the Champions Tour and marked the fifth time he had been a runner-up on the circuit...Contended again later in the month at The Cap Cana Championship. Was a 36-hole co-leader along with Romero and eventual winner Keith Fergus. Held a four-stroke advantage on the front side and held the lead or a share of the lead for most of the remainder of the round until the 17th hole when Fergus made an eagle to take the lead for good. He eventually finished T2 along with Andy Bean, one stroke behind Fergus.
