2016 Highlights
  • Advanced to the FedExCup Playoffs for the 10th consecutive time in his career, one of 16 players to achieve this feat in the 10 seasons of the FedExCup Playoffs. Made it to the TOUR Championship for the sixth time. Entered the Playoffs finale in the No. 11 position in the FedExCup standings and finished T17 at East Lake to end his season No. 15 in the FedExCup. Recorded 14 top-25 finishes (equaling his career-best haul from the 2011 season) from 27 starts. Of those, five were top-five showings, including a win at the Farmers Insurance Open
  • Won the Franklin Templeton Shootout with partner Jason Dufner in December highlighted by an 11-under-par 61 in the final round. Their winning total of 30-under-par 186 was the highest winning score since Ian Poulter and Dustin Johnson finished at 30-under 186 in 2010
  • Despite battling a head cold early in the week, finished T3 and nine strokes behind runaway champion Jordan Spieth at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. It marked his second top-three finish (3rd in 2013) in his last three starts at the event
  • Came back the following week with a playoff loss (dropping his playoff record to 2-1) to Fabian Gomez at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Began the week in a five-way tie for the first-round lead following a 7-under 63 (topping his previous-best score at Waialae by five strokes), then held solo possession of the second round lead at 12-under 128. Entered the final round tied for the lead with Zac Blair before a 4-under 66 (including a 4-under 31 on the back nine) led to a playoff with eventual-champion Fabian Gomez. Lost on the second playoff hole when Gomez made birdie. Dropped to three of seven when carrying at least a share of the lead into the final round on TOUR. Making his first trip to the Sony Open since 2008, carded just two bogeys for the week (par-4 14th hole in round one and par-4 4th on Sunday). Owned a streak of 43 consecutive holes without a bogey until he made bogey at the par-3 fourth during the final round
  • In his next start, won his eighth career PGA TOUR victory and second tournament title (2012, 2016) at the Farmers Insurance Open. After posting what would be the only under-par final round (3-under 69), waited nearly 24 hours for the final round to be completed and declared champion. Despite rain and wind gusts over 45 mph, recorded four birdies against one bogey to post 3-under 69 and was 14/14 from inside 10 feet of the hole. Won his fourth title in California at age 35 years, 1 month, 24 days in his 247th TOUR start. Marked the first time a player made the cut on the number and went on to win since Carl Pettersson at the 2010 RBC Canadian Open. Moved to second in all-time earnings in the Farmers Insurance Open, with $3,780,342 (behind Tiger Woods' $6,856,015)
  • Advanced out of group play at the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play with wins over Charley Hoffman (2 and 1), Charl Schwartzel (5 and 3) and a halved match with Danny Lee before losing to eventual-champion Jason Day (3 and 2) in the round of 16 for a T9 result
  • Two weeks later, posted three rounds of par or better at Augusta National to finish T10 at the Masters with four others, including Jason Day and Rory McIlroy. The top-10 finish marked his third top-10 showing at Augusta in nine starts
  • Entered final round of RBC Canadian Open as 54-hole leader but failed to go on to win, posting a final-round 71 to earn T5 finish
  • Making his 10th consecutive start in the Wyndham Championship, finished T3, his fifth top-10 in the event. Headed into the FedExCup Playoffs ranked No. 6. Went on to make the cut in all four Playoffs events to finish No. 15 in the FedExCup
  • Making his second Ryder Cup appearance, went 3-0 to help lead the United States to a 17-11 victory over the European team in the biennial event, the only American without a loss on his resume at Hazeltine. Wrapped up the week with a 3&1 victory over Andy Sullivan in their singles match
  • Battled windy conditions with a closing 4-under 68 at the Fiji International, running away from the field for a nine-stroke victory and his first international win. At 16-under 272, posted the largest winning margin on the European Tour this season, eclipsing Charl Schwartzel's eight-stroke win at the Tshwane Open. The victory came at the Vijay Singh-designed Natadola Bay in a co-sanctioned event on the European and Australasian tours.
