Won more than US$10million in a single day in September 2010 when he won the Tour Championship and with it the FedEx Cup. With two other wins that season he was voted the PGA of America Player of the Year and PGA Tour Player of the Year for the first time in his career. Holed the winning putt at The 2008 Ryder Cup to secure America’s first victory in the competition since 1999, but was far less influential at The 2010 Ryder Cup, contributing half a point from a possible three at the Celtic Manor Resort as the Americans were beaten 14½-13½. Also suffered defeat at the ‘Miracle of Medinah’ as the European team staged an impressive comeback to win, and again at Gleneagles two years later. Achieved Major Championship success when he won the 2003 U.S. Open at Olympia Fields Country Club in Illinois, and came close to adding another at the 2013 US PGA Championship, only to lose out to compatriot Jason Dufner on the final day. Taught by his father, Mike, his only coach, who was on hand to witness his emotional U.S. Open victory on Fathers’ Day. Possesses one of the most unorthodox swings in world golf, but it has proved effective as demonstrated by his record of 17 US PGA Tour victories. Started putting cross-handed at the age of seven. Won his first US PGA Tour event, the Las Vegas Invitational, in 1995, and repeated that victory in 1998 and 1999. Was also tied second behind Dustin Johnson at the 2016 U.S. Open. Shot the first official 58 in US PGA Tour history in the final round of the 2016 Travelers Championship.
