  • WGC-Bridgestone Invitational - Second Round


His victory in the 2003 Las Vegas Invitational, his fourth win on the US PGA Tour and his first since 1999, pushed him through the $10 million mark in career earnings. Also helped him qualify for the International Team at The Presidents Cup in South Africa. Followed that up by winning the Mercedes Championships in three consecutive years from 2004. A former Australian Rules Football player, he was raised on a dairy farm, where he used to hit golf shots from paddock to paddock once his chores were completed. After missing the cut in the 1998 Open Championship, experienced the tragic death of wife Renay outside a train station in London. The Renay Appleby Memorial Trophy was created by officials in New South Wales and is given annually to the Australian state’s best female junior golfer. To the delight of his many friends throughout the golfing world, he found happiness again when he married Ashley in 2003.
