PLAYER NOTES

Making his Ryder Cup debut at Celtic Manor, Kuchar is no stranger to performing well on big stages. As a sophomore in 1998 at Georgia Tech, he finished 21st at the Masters and 14th at the U.S. Open. His finish at the Masters was the best by an amateur in 20 years. A two-time first-team All-America selection and the Yellow Jackets' second player to be a four-time All-ACC selection, Kuchar won six collegiate events before turning professional in 2000. Ranked No. 22 in the world and 10th on the PGA Tour money list at the time he earned his spot on Team USA, he was one of the hottest players on tour this season with nine top-10 finishes in 21 events. Kuchar finished in the top 30 of all four majors in 2010, including the PGA Championship, where he held or was near the lead all four rounds before finishing tied for eighth.
