CURRENT YEAR HIGHLIGHTS
After failing to advance to the FedExCup Playoffs during the 2014-15 season, advanced to the Playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons, finishing No. 48 in the standings. Unable to build momentum, missed the cut at The Barclays and Deutsche Bank Championship before ending his season with a T42 at the BMW Championship. Following a 1-over 71 in round one of The Honda Classic, posted three rounds in the 60s at PGA National to finish alone in fifth place. Played Nos. 15-17, known as the "Bear Trap," in 2-under-par for the week.
In 15 PGA TOUR starts, made eight cuts and claimed a top-five finish in his first appearance of the season. At No. 160 in the FedExCup standings, was unable to advance to the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since 2010.
Highlight was his second PGA TOUR victory, at the RBC Heritage, defeating Webb Simpson in a sudden-death playoff. Finished No. 55 in the final FedExCup standings. Also won two events on the European Tour, running his career total of European wins to eight.
Finished a career-best 42nd in the FedExCup standings. A week after a T33 at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, bettered an opening-round, 3-over 73 by nine strokes with a 6-under 64 in the second round of The Honda Classic en route to a T9 in his first stroke-play event of the TOUR season. The top-10 came a year after a T6 at PGA National. Playing in the final group with Adam Scott, struggled to a 5-over 75 to finish T5 at The Open Championship. Was attempting to become the first player since Angel Cabrera (2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters) to claim major championships as his first two PGA TOUR wins. Earned 10th top-20 finish in his last 17 major championship starts (11 of 17 top-25s) and has finished no worse than 12th in this year's majors: Masters (T12), U.S. Open (T2) and The Open Championship (T5). His T5 finish, which came in his ninth Open Championship start, topped his previous-best finish of T11 at the 2005 Open Championship.
Made a career-high 16 starts on TOUR (later tied in 2012). Ten made cuts and three top 10s included a third-place finish at the season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Missed the cut in three of four starts in the majors.
Dream season included victory at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach GL, holding the winning putt for the European Ryder Cup team, two European Tour victories and winning a playoff showdown against Tiger Woods at the Chevron World Challenge.
Made 11 of 11 cuts on the PGA TOUR with two top-10 finishes as a non-member. Among the early leaders at the St. Jude Classic, then fell back during the middle rounds before rallying with a final-round 63 to finish T7. In early July, joined the PGA TOUR as a Special Temporary Member for the remainder of the season. Finished T10 at the PGA Championship, his first career top-10 in a major. Teamed with Rory McIlory in representing Ireland at the OMEGA Mission Hills World Cup. The duo combined to shoot a 28-under 260 to T2 behind the Italian team of Edoardo and Francesco Molinari.
Won the European Tour's Ballantine's Championship on Jeju Island, South Korea, in March. Defeated Jeev Milkha Singh in a three-hole playoff by making a tap-in birdie after his 7-iron approach from 179 yards landed within a foot of the hole. Victory earned him a spot in the World Golf Championships-CA Championship the following week.
Finished the European Tour season with nine top-10s, including a win, two seconds and two thirds to place sixth on the Order of Merit.
