Career Highlights

2011: After two consecutive top-10 finishes on the money list, slumped to 45th on the final earnings chart much of that drop attributed to a sore left hip, which troubled him for much of the season...His lone top-10 finish came in July when three consecutive rounds in the 60s led to a T4 finish at the Montreal Championship...Teed it up at the PGA TOUR's Viking Classic in July, his first start on the TOUR in almost three years, but missed the cut. 2010: Moved up two spots from ninth to seventh on the final money chart and surpassed the $1-million mark for the second year in succession while also winning his second career title...Claimed his second Champions Tour crown in May, a three-stroke victory at the Regions Charity Classic. After an opening-round 68, matched a personal-best with a 10-under-par 62 Saturday, which included a 6-under-par 30 on the back nine. Continued his stellar play on the front nine Sunday, fashioning another 6-under-par 30. Made consecutive birdies on Nos. 10 and 11 to build a five-stroke margin on the field and was never threatened after that despite back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 13 and 14. His 54-hole total of 20-under-par 196 fell just one stroke shy of the 54-hole scoring record set in 2001 by Hale Irwin. Became the 18th different winner of the event in 19 years...Was also the 36-hole leader at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open and held the lead midway through the back nine Sunday before struggling down the stretch with three bogeys in his last five holes to finish T3 in Endicott. Performance at En-Joie was his second straight top-five effort in the Dick's event...Closed with a final-round, 7-under 65 to finish T3 again the following week at the inaugural Montreal Championship...Added a third T3 finish late in the year at the Administaff Small Business Classic. Played his first four holes of the tournament in 3-over but his final 50 holes in 12-under to tie Brad Bryant. Both players shot 66-66 on the weekend, the second-lowest weekend totals at The Woodlands...Finished T2 in Sub-Par Rounds (46) and T3 in Rounds in the 60s (34). Was also second to Russ Cochran (321) in Total Birdies with 312. 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 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. 2008: Turned 50 on July 15 and made his Champions Tour debut that week in Minnesota at the 3M Championship. Finished T39 in his first start after posting a final-round 66 at TPC Twin Cities...Best effort in eight events in his rookie season came in the last full-field tournament, the AT&T Championship, in San Antonio. Was one stroke off the lead after opening with a 7-under 64 at Oak Hills and eventually finished T8.
