Career Highlights

2008: Was among the top-five in more than a third of his appearances on the Champions Tour, but missed some golden opportunities to win during the season.

Had a chance of joining the four-man playoff, which included eventual-winner Scott Hoch, but missed a birdie opportunity at No. 18 leaving him one stroke shy and in a T5...Second shot at a win came in early May at the FedEx Kinko's Classic. Appeared to be in control midway through the final round at The Hills but eventually finished T2 in the event, one stroke back of fellow countryman Denis Watson. Enjoyed a three-stroke lead with four to play but made back-to-back double-bogeys on No. 15 and No. 16 after his ball found the water on each hole. Still had a chance to send the event into a playoff, but missed a 15-foot birdie effort on the final hole that left him one stroke short...Next chance at a win came at The Principal Charity Classic in Iowa. Was the 36-hole leader at Glen Oaks but eventually finished third, two strokes back of Jay Haas, despite carding a final-round 69...In his next start after Iowa, was T2 again at the Commerce Bank Championship, one stroke back of Loren Roberts. Made a Sunday charge up the leaderboard with a final-round 65 at Eisenhower Red that matched the low round of the tournament...Final attempt at a win came late in the season.

Enjoyed a four-stroke lead over Weibring after four holes Sunday but fell out of the lead after three bogeys in a six-hole stretch (Nos. 5-10).
