Became a two-time Senior Open Championship winner in 2009 when he triumphed at Sunningdale Golf Club to add to the title he won in 2006 at the Turnberry Resort. Trailed Greg Norman by one stroke going into the final round but a closing 67 took the American into a play-off with compatriot Fred Funk and Ireland’s Mark McNulty which he won on the second extra hole. Also won the Boeing Classic and The ACE Group Classic on the US Champions Tour in 2009. At Turnberry, Scotland, the quiet American led from the first round, before eventually securing the replica Claret Jug by defeating Argentine Eduardo Romero at the first hole of a sudden-death play-off. Appropriately for a man nicknamed the ‘Boss of the Moss’, in recognition of his ability on the greens, he struck the decisive blow with a 13 foot putt while Romero three-putted from 40 feet.
