Career Highlights

2011: Struggled with his game for a majority of the season, sinking to 61st on the final money list, his lowest standing since joining the Champions Tour in 2004...His scoring average was more than a stroke higher than in 2010, and he ranked 47th in Putting after tying for 10th in that same category in 2010...Was among the top 20 in three events, all before May...Was T11 at the Allianz Championship in his second start of the season. Trailed by just three strokes entering the final round but shot 73 Sunday and dropped back...Was T18 in his next start, at The ACE Group Classic, shooting 69-68 on the weekend in Naples...Teamed with Dan Forsman to finish T18 at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. 2010: Scattered seven top-10 finishes, the most he's ever had in one season on the Champions Tour, and ended up 22nd on the final earnings list, his highest standing since 2005...Was among the top five twice early in Florida. Best performance of the campaign was a T2 at the rain-shortened Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am near Tampa in mid-April. Along with Mark O'Meara, trailed Bernhard Langer by one stroke after carding a 3-under 68 Saturday at TPC Tampa Bay. However, final round was washed out due to heavy rains Sunday morning...Three starts earlier in Boca Raton, held a portion of the lead early in the final round of the Allianz Championship and eventually finished T5 at Broken Sound. For the first time since the 2008 AT&T Championship, put together three consecutive rounds in the 60s in a 54-hole event...Late in the summer, closing round, 5-under-par 67 at the Boeing Classic led to an eventual T4 finish at the Seattle-area event...Best performance in a major came when he rebounded from a 3-over-par 73 in the opening round to finish seventh at the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship in October...Also partnered Ken Green for Green's inspirational comeback to the Champions Tour at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. Despite finishing T26 in the Legends Division, duo received national attention. 2009: Was among the top 30 on the money list for the first time since 2005...Ended a winless drought of more than four years when he claimed the JELD-WEN Tradition in late August with a 12-foot birdie on the first extra hole to defeat John Cook. The win came in his 95th start since his win at the Senior PGA Championship in 2005, which also came in a playoff. The victory was also his first top-10 finish since he was T3 at the 2007 ACE Group Classic. With his win he joined Peter Jacobsen as the only active players whose first two wins both came in major championships. He also earned a check for $392,000, the largest of his professional career. 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. 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 a year earlier. 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. 2005: Enjoyed immediate success in his first full season on the Champions Tour...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 four rounds to win...Came close to a second straight title the following week at the Allianz Championship. Was the 36-hole leader 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...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 ace 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.
