Once again was among the leaders in Driving Accuracy finishing second at 79.94%.
Failed to finish among the top 30 on the money list for just the second time in nine seasons on the Champions Tour when he ended the year 33rd overall. Battled an elbow issue during the year which forced him to miss some early-season events.
On the PGA TOUR, made the cut in three events.
Battled through a case of vertigo during the year and was among the top three three times over his 24 Champions Tour appearances. Missed the cut in his only PGA TOUR start, at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Would use his top-50 position on the PGA TOUR career money list exemption for the 2013-14 season.
Won multiple titles on the Champions Tour for the first time since the 2008 season. Finished fourth on the money list and claimed the fifth spot in the season-long Charles Schwab Cup race, along with its $100,000 annuity. Led all players in Driving Accuracy at 79.86 percent.
Managed just one cut in seven PGA TOUR starts, and had four top-10 finishes on the Champions Tour before being shelved. Had his season cut short by injuries, with his last start coming in late July at the U.S. Senior Open. Days later underwent the first of his two surgeries in early August. Dr. Tom Graham repaired a torn ligament in his left thumb at the Cleveland Clinic. Three days later he had surgery in Jacksonville, Fla., to repair scar tissue in his right knee. Originally injured his thumb at the Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn, swinging a stretch stick into a porch railing while warming up at his rental home near the course. Re-injured the thumb practicing in November and underwent a second surgery in which surgeons fused a joint in his thumb.
Played six times on the PGA TOUR, focusing primarily on the Champions Tour. Once again finished among the leading money-winners on the Champions Tour, surpassing the $1-million mark for the third successive season. Totaled one Champions Tour victory and eight top-10s, and finished sixth in the final Charles Schwab Cup standings. Champions Tour Player of the Month for August.
Divided his time between the PGA TOUR and Champions Tour and overcame multiple knee injuries. Made the cut in two of six starts on the PGA TOUR. Competed in 21 Champions Tour events, 11 of which yielded top-10 finishes. Was the only player to finish among the top 10 in all five majors. Lost two Champions Tour events in playoffs, at The Principal Charity Classic and The Senior Open Championship. Was third on the final Charles Schwab Cup points list, just two points back of runner-up John Cook. He was also fifth in official earnings, with more than $1.5 million despite not starting his season until The ACE Group Classic in Naples after suffering a staph infection in his right knee in late December 2008.
At age 51, continued to split time between the PGA TOUR and Champions Tour. Plagued by knee problems through much of the year and underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in mid-May before returning to action in early June at the PGA TOUR's Stanford St. Jude Championship. Injury kept him out of competition for less than a month. Made the cut in seven of 14 starts on the PGA TOUR. Managed to finish either first or second in all three senior major championships he played. Despite splitting time between the PGA TOUR and Champions Tour, still managed to win twice on the senior circuit and was third on the final Champions Tour money list, with over $1.7 million in official money.
Captured events on both the PGA TOUR and the Champions Tour. Finished second in Driving Accuracy to Jose Coceres at 75.26 percent. Narrowly missed pocketing seven figures on both Tours. Made just nine starts prior to the Charles Schwab Cup Championship but parlayed those appearances into a 10th start by qualifying for the season-ending tournament for the Tour's top-30 money-winners.
Made three Champions Tour appearances after becoming eligible in June. Made 25 of 29 cuts (86.21 percent), the highest percentage of his career. Turned 50 halfway through the season and won his first Champions Tour title. Tied Brett Quigley for the TOUR lead in rounds in the 60s with 47.

Posted a career-high nine top-10s.
Topped $2 million in earnings for the first time and finished a then-highest 13th on the money list. Had four runner-up finishes, a career best. The last players to have that many runner-up finishes in a year without winning were Davis Love III and Tom Lehman in 1999.
Finished in the top 20 10 times.
Suffered a tear in right knee which required surgery in September, but rebounded by making his last six cuts of the year, including back-to-back top-10s to end the season.
Finished second three times and posted eight top-10s.
Collected his fifth TOUR victory and for the first time in his 10-year career eclipsed the $1-million mark in earnings. Made 25 of 32 cuts on his way to $1,121,988 season in which he was among top 10 eight times and top 25 17 times. Along with victory, also finished second and third.
