Career Highlights

2009: Was among the top 10 in more than a third of his starts in his first full Champions Tour season and finished ninth on the final money list, his highest standing ever on any Tour, with over $1.2 million...Highlight of his year came early in the campaign when he won his first Champions Tour event, the AT&T Champions Classic. The victory came in his 12th career start on the circuit. Shot 66 in the final round to come from five strokes back and then defeated Don Pooley with a 10-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole at Valencia CC. Caught a break on the final hole of regulation when his second shot on the par-5 18th drifted right of the green and was barely inbounds, allowing him to eventually make a crucial par...Fired three consecutive rounds in the 60s and appeared on the weekend leaderboard at the Boeing Classic, eventually posting a T3 finish near Seattle...Was also the early leader in the final round of the SAS Championship and finished solo fourth after playing the back nine Sunday at Prestonwood in even par...Appeared to be in command early on the back nine at the Administaff Small Business Classic but found the water with his tee shot on the par-3 14th hole. A triple bogey on that hole eventually led to a T4 finish near Houston. His 8-under 64 Friday included six birdies in a row, matching Mark James (Allianz Championship) for best birdie streak in 2009. His first-round score also matched his career-low round on the Champions Tour...Posted rounds of 68-65 on the weekend at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open to T5 in Endicott, NY.08: Turned 50 on July 15 and made his Champions Tour debut that week in Minnesota at the 3M Championship.
