Biography

Picked up another win at the RBC Heritage in April, 2014, in dramatic circumstances, thanks to a stunning chip-in on the final hole, to overcome a four-shot deficit for a one-stroke victory. Won his first WGC title in the 2013 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, where he defeated compatriot Hunter Mahan 2&1 in the final. Later that year captured the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance on the US PGA Tour. Made huge strides in 2012, when he finished tied third in the Masters Tournament and won The Players Championship at Sawgrass. Also made his second Ryder Cup appearance that year, contributing two points from three matches as the USA lost by a point at Medinah Country Club. Made his debut in the team contest at The Celtic Manor Resort in 2010, winning two points from four. Started playing golf aged 12 when his mother upgraded the family’s country club membership, and he and his father, who was a top tennis player, quickly became hooked. Met wife Sybi, who also excels at tennis, at Georgia Tech, and in 2009 they won the consolation title in the USTA National Husband/Wife Doubles Championship at the ATP Headquarters in Florida. Won the US Amateur Championship in 1997, following three consecutive wins by Tiger Woods, and in 1998 finished 21st in the Masters Tournament and 14th in the US Open Championship. Awarded the Fred Haskins Award in 1998 as the nation's top collegiate golfer.
