Career Highlights

2013: Made a career-best 23 cuts in 27 starts, with four top-10 finishes and a 29th-place finish in the FedExCup.

Finished T8 at the Puerto Rico Open for his first top-10 of the season. It was his second consecutive top-10 at the Puerto Rico Open in four career starts.

A week later, closed with a bogey-free, 8-under 63 at the Tampa Bay Championship, the low round of the week, to finish runner-up to Kevin Streelman. The 63 was just his fourth sub-70 score in 20 rounds on the Copperhead Course. He began the day tied for 35th and sat on the clubhouse lead for more than three hours Sunday until Streelman safely hit the 72nd green in two, with a two-stroke lead. The finish was his best since winning the 2008 RBC Heritage.

After an opening-round, 7-under 65 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, ensuing rounds of 68-73-68 resulted in a T6 performance with Harris English. Was the only player in the field to make three eagles, one coming at the par-4 10th in the second round (his first hole of the day). He holed a wedge from 105 yards.

Entered the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial trailing Matt Kuchar by one stroke, but a 4-under 66 to Kuchar's 2-under 68 led to a one-stroke victory. His third PGA TOUR win came 124 starts after his last win, at the 2008 RBC Heritage. Coincidentally, his first two wins at the RBC Heritage (2007 and 2008) and victory at Colonial came with plaid jackets as prizes. Became the fifth consecutive come-from-behind winner at the Crowne Plaza Invitational, moving from No. 28 to No. 6 in the FedExCup standings in the process. Despite missing a couple of short putts Sunday that would have padded his winning margin, made seven putts longer than 20 feet during the week, equaling his career-best mark at the 2010 Zurich Classic of New Orleans for putts made from that distance. One of the key putts during his final-round victory run was a 21-foot, 5-inch birdie on the the 13th hole.

Advanced to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola for the first time since the 2007 season, with a 30th-place finish at East Lake GC. 2012: Qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs for the fifth time in six years but failed to advance after missing the cut at The Barclays. Finished No. 123 in the FedExCup standings.

Playing the AT&T; Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, had a hole-in-one during the third round on No. 5 at Spyglass Hill with a hybrid from 214 yards. It was the second of his PGA TOUR career (2007 Viking Classic).

Finished T3 at the Puerto Rico Open with rounds of 70-68-71-66. It was his first top-three finish since he won in 2008. It was his first top-10 since the 2010 Greenbrier Classic (T9). Finished T24 at the 2010 Puerto Rico Open and had to WD from the event in 2011.

The two-time RBC Heritage winner finished T6 in his attempt to move into a tie with Hale Irwin for second-most wins at the event (three), behind only five-time winner Davis Love III. Owns 20 rounds at par-or-better in 24 attempts at Harbour Town. In five other starts at the RBC Heritage, has five top-15 finishes (won in 2007 and 2008, T13 in 2009 and T12 in 2010).

Ended the PGA TOUR season on the right note, with a T5 at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic. Posted 5-under 67s in the second and final rounds to claim the top-five finish in his fifth start in the Disney World event. 2011: Led the TOUR in Greens in Regulation Percentage (71.68 percent) but struggled with injuries most of the season. Made only 11 of 23 cuts and failed to record a top 10 for the first time in his TOUR career. Only top-25 finish came in his second start of the season.

Held a share of the 36-hole lead at the Bob Hope Classic after opening 65-66. Finished T13. 2010: Claimed three top-10 finishes in 2010.

His first top-10 of the season was a T10 finish at Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Posted 9-under 279 total but was 10-under, and bogey-free, on the front nine for the week.

Next top 10 came was a ninth-place finish at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, spurred on by a second-round, 7-under 63, just one shy of his career-best round. Friday's round was aided by a 6-under 30 on the back nine at Colonial CC.

A second-round 7-under 63 paved the way to a T9 finish at the inaugural Greenbrier Classic, his third top-10 finish of the year. 2009: Made the cut 19 times in 22 starts, including one top 10 in his second start of the year, a T9 at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Forced to withdraw in the third round of THE PLAYERS Championship in May because of a shoulder injury.

Following a T14 finish at the Travelers Championship, did not miss a cut for the remainder of the season (eight starts).

Teamed with Brandt Snedeker in October to win the ADT Skills Challenge in Palm Beach, Fla. 2008: Won for the second consecutive season at the Verizon Heritage. Made the cut in 19 of 24 starts, including a career-best 11 top-25 finishes. Finished sophomore campaign No. 33 in FedExCup standings and No. 25 in earnings, surpassing $2 million in earnings for the second straight year.

Recorded his first top-10 finish of the year with a T8 showing at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.

After playing with his mom in the pro-am, successfully defended his Verizon Heritage title at Harbour Town. After chipping in for par on the last two holes in 2007, holed a 78-yard chip for birdie at the par-4 10th hole and went on to a three-stroke win over Aaron Baddeley and Anthony Kim.
