Career Highlights

2009: One of the big success stories of the 2009 season and ended with a career-best in official earnings and Rookie of the Year honors...The left-hander started the season as a conditionally-exempt player after a T11 finish at the 2008 Champions Tour National Qualifying Tournament, but he parlayed strong play into a top-30 finish on the money list and fully-exempt status for 2010...Capped his year with a runner-up performance to John Cook at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, where he posted four consecutive rounds in the 60s...Also closed with a final-round 65 to finish T2 at the Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn. Was in contention throughout the final round, but Jay Haas birdied five of his last six holes to pass him. Performance in North Carolina vaulted him from 41st to 28th on the money list and he eventually finished 17th...Contended again the following week near Raleigh before finishing T5 at the SAS Championship. Was tied for the first-round lead at Prestonwood, with Denis Watson and then trailed Tom Pernice, Jr. by one stroke after 36 holes. A final-round 71 left him three strokes back of Pernice...Was T7 at the Administaff Small Business Classic after posting three straight sub-par rounds on the Tournament Course at The Woodlands...Had another strong performance in his next outing at the AT&T Championship in San Antonio. Was the 18- and 36-hole co-leader before closing with a 3-over-par 74 to slip to a T10 at Oak Hills...Key point in his year came at the U.S. Senior Open where he fashioned a third-round 64 and a final-round 68, which led to a third-place finish. That performance led to a check for $175,152, which was instrumental in his getting a high standing in the re-shuffle and the ability to play the final events of the season...Closed the year with five top-10 finishes in his last six starts, earning $583,360 in those starts for an average of $97,227 per start in that span.

Personal

Avid University of Kentucky basketball fan...Started playing with ladies' golf clubs because he couldn't find any other left-handed clubs...Son Ryan scored a hole-in-one at age 6, one of youngest ever to record an ace. Ryan shot 67 in Monday Qualifier for 1998 FedEx St. Jude Classic, missing a playoff for final tournament spot by one stroke.
