Career Highlights

2008: Did not record a top-10 finish in 22 starts, but did place in the top 20 seven times...Best showing was a T11 at the Regions Charity Classic in May...Also T12 at both the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am and the AT&T Championship, where he had three straight rounds in the 60s. 2007: Played well early in the year, with three top-10 finishes in his first five starts, but would fare no better than T18 the remainder of the season...Was two strokes off the pace through 36 holes of The ACE Group Classic and posted a final-round 69 at Quail West to finish T3 in Naples, his best effort on the Champions Tour since T3 in Mexico in 2006. Also T9 at the Allianz Championship and T10 at the Turtle Bay Championship. 2006: Slipped to 39th on the money list after finishing 21st the previous year and saw his earnings drop nearly in half from his 2005 total...After failing to finish no higher than T33 in his first five starts of the season, finally worked his way into the top 10 in his sixth outing, earning a T5 at the Toshiba Classic in March...Followed that in his next start when another strong performance resulted with a T3 finish at the Puerto Vallarta Blue Agave Golf Classic in Mexico...Struggled getting off to a quick start. Posted 12 first-rounds over-par in 23 starts. Just two of his opening rounds were in the 60s. Ranked 64th in First-Round Scoring Average for the year. Slipped from 26th to 49th in Putting Average. 2005: Enjoyed immediate success after playing a full-time schedule on the Champions Tour for the first time...Finished 21st on the money list and earned a career-best $863,006, over $300,000 more than his best season on the PGA TOUR...Selected as the May Player of the Month after winning his first Champions Tour event in his 17th career start at the Senior PGA Championship. Won in a playoff after being the beneficiary of a three-stroke turnaround at the final hole of regulation. Made an eagle on the par-5 18th at Laurel Valley and then watched Jerry Pate three-putt for a bogey. Two-putted for birdie on the first extra hole (18th again) to defeat Pate and Dana Quigley for his first win on TOUR since 1988 (16 years, 9 months, 2 days). Was the only player in the Senior PGA field to break par all four days. His four consecutive rounds of 70 marked the first time since Miller Barber at the 1982 Suntree Classic (66-66-66-66) that a Champions Tour player shot the same score each day over 72 holes to win...Came close to a second straight title the following week at the Allianz Championship. Was the 36-hole leader at the Tournament Club of Iowa, but eventually missed on a playoff berth with Tom Jenkins and D.A. Weibring after posting an even-par 71 on Sunday...Contended for the first time at The ACE Group Classic when he made a pair of eagles in the final round and eventually finished T4 in Naples...Made the first hole-in-one in his Champions Tour career when he aced hole No. 7 with a 4-wood from 228 yards in the final round at the JELD-WEN Tradition. It was his first since the 1985 Manufacturers Hanover Westchester Classic. 2004: Made his debut at the Senior British Open, where he was T57...Registered his best performance at the Kroger Classic near Cincinnati. Closed with a 5-under 67 to finish T5 along with Des Smyth, three strokes back of fellow Utah resident Bruce Summerhays.
