Won for the first time on his 188th US PGA Tour start, capturing the 2014 Frys.com Open in October 2013. Went into the final round three shots off the lead but a 66 gave him the title. Added a second win at the Sony Open in Hawaii, birdieing four of his last five holes for a 63 and a one shot win, and continued that fine form to claim the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Went into the final round with a six shot lead before hanging on to win by one shot, becoming the fourth player to win three events in the first eight or fewer events of a season (joining David Duval, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods) since 1995. Made his Ryder Cup debut at Gleneagles in 2014, contributing two and a half points from five matches. Captured two more US PGA Tour titles in early 2015, successfully defending the Sony Open in Hawaii and then adding the Valero Texas Open. Learned the game from his father, who was a scratch golfer. Met his wife, Erin, at a Web.com Tour event in 2004, where she was a tournament volunteer. His father-in-law, Mark Stiegemeier, was the 1975 world champion in freestyle skiing.
