Biography

Claimed his seventh US PGA Tour title in some style at the 2014 RCB Heritage, holing out for birdie from the bunker on the 18th to win by one shot from Luke Donald. First took up the game aged 12 when his mother, Meg, upgraded the family’s country club membership to include golf. He and his father, Pete, a keen tennis player who was once ranked number one in doubles in the state of Florida, were both soon hooked on the game. Kuchar made rapid progress through the amateur ranks before winning the US Amateur Championship in 1997 – following three consecutive victories by a certain Tiger Woods. The following year, he received the Fred Haskins Award given to America’s leading collegiate golfer. Met his wife, Sybi, during their time together at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2009, the pair teamed up to win the consolation title in the United States Tennis Association’s National Husband & Wife Doubles Championship, held at the ATP Headquarters in Florida.
