Son of a ten-pin bowling centre proprietor, started out playing golf in Nebraska but was thrilled when family moved to Florida when he was 13 so that he could play virtually every day. Became Florida State Junior Champion. Won 1989 Open Championship at Royal Troon after a play-off with Greg Norman and Wayne Grady. Shot a closing 68, assisted by a birdie at the 12th where his chip went into the hole on the 'fly'. Qualified in fourth place for the 34th Ryder Cup Matches - his fourth appearance in the event.
