Effort near Boston was the start of a five-event run where he posted 16 consecutve rounds at par or better...Was T9 at the 3M Championship in Minnesota after being the first-round leader in the tournament, a first for him since the 2005 Walmart First-Tee Open at Pebble Beach...Matched his career-low round on the Champions Tour by shooting 10-under 62 Friday at TPC Twin Cities, the 18-hole tournament record. Round included a front-nine 29 that featured a streak of three birdies, an eagle and another birdie. 2007: Recorded a pair of runner-up finishes near the end of the season...Was involved in a historic seven-man playoff in August at the Boeing Classic and was eliminated on the first hole near Seattle...Three starts later, shot 15-under 201 at Prestonwood CC near Raleigh but finished second to Mark Wiebe by three strokes. 2006: Saw his streak of consecutive million-dollar seasons end at eight and was out of the top 20 on the money list for the first time since his rookie year in 1997...Was first diagnosed with high blood pressure at the Toshiba Classic and was bothered by this condition for the majority of season...Managed to successfully defend his title in Kansas City in early July. Shot a 9-under, course-record-tying 63 Sunday, the lowest final round of his career, to come from two strokes back and beat David Edwards by three strokes at Nicklaus GC at Lionsgate. Victory at the Greater Kansas City Golf Classic was his third at that event and was the 11th title of his Champions Tour career...Near the start of the season, partnered with Raymond Floyd to win 10 skins and a record $510,000 at the Wendy's Champions Skins Game in Hawaii. Duo bested the team of Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson in the alternate-shot event on the Gold Course at Wailea. 2005: Won Player of the Year honors with career season that saw him, at age 58, become the oldest player ever to claim the Arnold Palmer Award signifying the leading money-winner on the circuit.
