Career Highlights

2010: Split time between the Champions Tour and the PGA TOUR and narrowly missed out on being fully-exempt on both circuits for 2011. Made 14 starts on the Champions Tour and was among the top-10 seven times, including three second-place performances. Finished 9th on the Champions money list with $1,196,770, the most money made by a player in 2010 without a victory and also the most money he's ever made in a single season on any Tour in his career...Late-season run allowed him to finish fourth in the final Schwab Cup standings with 1,846 points and earned him a $200,000 annuity...Fired a closing-round 67 to finish T2, one stroke behind Fred Funk at the JELD-WEN Tradition in August. Led all players in the event with 25 birdies and was the clubhouse leader at 11-under-par on Sunday before Funk made a birdie at No. 16 to grab the lead for good...Was runner-up again in October when he fell in a one-hole playoff to Mark O'Meara at the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship. Made a late run with three birdies in his final five holes to pull even at the end of 72 holes, but hit his tee shot on the first extra hole into the right rough which eventually led to a bogey and his second-place finish in the year's final major championship...Dueled John Cook down the stretch at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship before finishing in solo second, two strokes back. With support from a partisan San Francisco crowd, carded a 10-under 61 in the third round at TPC Harding Park and enjoyed a one-stroke lead over Cook after play on Saturday. Round was his career best on any Tour and the last of four 61s posted on the Champions Tour in 2010...Opened Champions Tour campaign with a solo third-place effort at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai. Carded a 6-under 66 in all three rounds, but still finished four strokes back of Tom Watson...Made 17 starts on the PGA TOUR and dropped out of the top 125 in the season's final event when he posted rounds of 74-70 and missed the cut at the Children's Miracle Network Classic at Walt Disney World Resort. Came into the week at No. 124 on the 2010 PGA TOUR money list but ended up at No. 130 after the missed cut at Disney...Turned in his best performance on the PGA TOUR in early October when he finished solo second at the Viking Classic in Mississippi, three strokes back of Bill Haas, the eventual winner. Was tied for the lead with Haas after 12 holes on Sunday, but got a bad break at No. 13 when his drive hit a cart path and went out of bounds. Performance near Jackson, MS was his best showing in a PGA TOUR event since he was second at the 2007 Turning Stone Resort Championship. 2009: Made just three starts on the Champions Tour while still competing on the PGA TOUR...Parlayed a sponsor's exemption at the Senior PGA Championship into his first career Champions Tour win. Rebounded from a 4-over-par 74 start with rounds of 66-67-67 to win the crown at the Canterbury GC near Cleveland. Became the first sponsor exemption to win a Champions Tour event since Mark Wiebe did so at the 2007 SAS Championship. Also became the 14th player to win in his debut...Made 21 starts on the PGA TOUR, with his lone top 10 coming at the Wyndham Championship, where he was T5. Finished 109th on the final PGA TOUR money list in 2009.
