Toms ranked fifth on the PGA Tour money list in 2005, thanks largely to his win at the World Golf Match Play Championship. However, late in the year he had a health scare. While playing at the 84 Lumber Classic in September of 2005, Toms collapsed and was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with a heart condition called Superventricular Tachycardia, a term for a rapid heart rate orginating above the ventricles. In November, Toms had surgery to correct the non-life threatening ailment. He bounced back from the surgery by winning the first full-field PGA Tour event of the 2006 season in Hawaii. Though he's suffered through some back problems this summer, Toms is back on top of his game.
