Champions Tour Highlights
Finally broke through for his first Champions Tour win when he teamed with Nick Price to win the Legends Division at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf in a two-hole playoff with John Cook and Joey Sindelar. The win came in his 58th career start on the Tour and it was also his first win in a PGA TOUR-sanctioned event since the 1998 British Open, a span of 238 events. The duo posted a winning score of 28-under-par 188 inb Savannah and played all 54 holes without a bogey...One week earlier finished T2 at the rain-shortened Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am near Tampa. Was the tournament's first-round leader after a 6-under 65 Friday, but his second-round 69 dropped him into a tie with Mike Reid, one stroke back of Bernhard Langer. Even after making birdie on his opening hole Sunday to tie Langer, heavy rains wiped out the final round shortly afterward and he became a runner-up for the ninth time on the Champions Tour...Opened the season with a T11 performance at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai. Shot a 7-under 65 Saturday, the low score of the field in the second round...Traveled to Dubai to play in the European Tour's Omega Dubai Desert Classic but missed the cut...Played in the PGA TOUR's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and Masters but missed the cut in both events.

2009: Put together his best year on the Champions Tour, with earnings of $1.2 million, eighth on the final earnings list.

Was a 36-hole co-leader along with Romero and eventual-winner Keith Fergus. Held a four-stroke advantage on the front side and held the lead or a share of the lead for most of the remainder of the round until the 17th hole when Fergus holed a wedge shot form an eagle to take the lead for good. Eventually finished T2 along with Andy Bean, one stroke behind Fergus...Was a distant second to Bernhard Langer at the Triton Financial Classic near Austin, TX, in June...Narrowly missed when he finished second, one stroke behind Loren Roberts at the Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. Blistered the course with a final-round, 8-under-par 64 only to have it go for naught when Roberts birdied the final two holes to beat him by one stroke. Runner-up effort in Seattle marked the eighth time in his career he's been second in a Champions Tour event...Had another chance for victory the following week at the Walmart First Tee Open at Pebble Beach.
