Equalled the then major championship record when he started The Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes in 2012 with 66-64. Finished joint third with Tiger Woods, but two months later was celebrating an $11million double of Tour Championship and season-ending FedEx Cup victories.

Made his Ryder Cup debut a week later and after reaching fourth in the world helped the United States retain the Presidents Cup in 2013. Collected a second Ryder Cup cap in 2016 and won all his three games in America’s triumph, but missed The Open in 2017 with a rib injury and was not part of last year’s field until a fortnight before when he finished joint third in A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, part of The Open Qualifying Series with four Carnoustie places on offer.

Is a nine-time winner on the PGA Tour, the first of them being achieved with a closing 63 in the 2007 Wyndham Championship and the most recent at last season’s Wyndham Championship. His first major appearance came as an amateur at the 2004 Masters after he had won the US Public Links Championship and he was the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 2007.
