Claimed his first European Tour victory at the 2015 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, thanks to a fine birdie on the 72nd hole to finish one stroke clear of compatriot Matt Kuchar. Enjoyed an outstanding 2014 campaign, becoming the first player in the modern era to finish in the top five in all four Major Championships in a single season without winning one. The closest he came to breaking his Major duck was in the Open Championship, where he finished two shots behind his close friend and former Walker Cup opponent Rory McIlroy. Continued in the same vein in 2015, winning the coveted Players Championship on the US PGA Tour, and at the beginning of 2016 claimed the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship for his second European Tour title. Started playing golf aged three, but his main passion as a youngster was dirt-bike riding. Gave up the sport after an accident prior to his freshman year in high school resulted in several broken bones in his foot. Formed a parody group with his fellow US PGA Tour members Ben Crane, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan. The quartet, known as the Golf Boys, have released several videos on YouTube.
