 Current Year PGA TOUR Highlights
Recorded a hole-in-one on the 198-yard, par-3 third hole (South Course) with a 5-iron during the first round of the Buick Invitational...Following week, finished T4 at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, where he led the field in birdies with 36, one off the tournament record...Earned his first PGA TOUR title
at the MCI Heritage in his 99th career TOUR start. After using a long putter over the last five years, pulled out a short putter at the start of the week. Switch came due to some bad putting in events leading up to MCI Heritage, especially after missing the cut at the Masters Tournament. Opened with a career-best 9-under 62, which included 11 birdies between two bogeys on No. 1 and No. 18. Managed the distinction of shooting the lowest first-round by an MCI Heritage winner in history (62) and the highest final round by a winner (75). His 7-under 277 total was the highest winning score at the MCI Heritage since Tom Watson won with a 4-under 280 in 1980...Finished T3 at the Bank of America Colonial, posting four rounds in the 60s to finish eight strokes behind champion Kenny Perry.
