Born in Fort Knox, Ky., where his father was serving in the U.S. Army. Has lived in central New York for most of his life. He was a childhood friend and high school golf rival of fellow PGA Tour Champions player Mike Hulbert. As an 18-year-old in 1976, teamed with Hulbert to defeat newly appointed Syracuse University basketball coach Jim Boeheim and his partner to win the Country Club of Ithaca best-ball event. Struck up a lasting friendship with Boeheim and remains a huge Syracuse fan.
Attended Ohio State and was a distinguished member of the school's golf team. Was a three-time All-American. Member of the 1979 NCAA Championship team, and Ohio State's Athlete of the Year in 1981. He was inducted into the Ohio State Varsity Hall of Fame in 1992. Son Jamie played golf at Ohio State (graduated in 2012).
Won the last of his seven PGA Tour titles in the 2004 Wachovia Championship in a two-hole playoff over Arron Oberholser. This win ended a span of 370 events since his previous Tour win, the 1990 Hardee's Classic. Collected the winner's check of $1,008,000 to surpass the $1 million mark in a single season for the first time in his 22-year career. Played full-time on the PGA Tour between 1984 and 2007. In 699 events played, he won seven times, was runner-up nine times, third eight times and finished in the top 10 83 times. Had accumulated earnings of $11.2 million.
Had a banner season on the PGA Tour Champions in 2009, going over the $1 million mark and falling just short of $2 million in earnings. Was runner-up in the 2009 U.S. Senior Open at Crooked Stick.
2010 Notes: Teamed with former Ohio State teammate John Cook to finish second to Mark O'Meara and Nick Price in the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf in April. The two teams finished the 54-hole event tied at 28-under-par 188, but despite not making a bogey in regulation, the pair each bogeyed the second playoff hole to finish second.
2011 Notes: Finished among the top-30 money-winners for a fourth consecutive year and played his best golf in the middle part of the season when he was among the top eight four times in a stretch of five appearances. Was in contention on the back nine at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open and eventually finished T-4th at En-Joie GC. Followed his effort the next week with three more rounds in the 60s and a third-place finish at the Montreal Championship. He enjoyed a successful return to Ohio for July's U.S. Senior Open at Inverness, finishing T-4th on the strength of four straight under-par scores. The following week, was T-8th in the 3M Championship on the strength of a final-round 65 at the TPC Twin Cities. Was out of action for just over a month with a lower-back injury. Initially was forced to withdraw from the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf after the first round and teammate John Cook subsequently withdrew from the better-ball team event. Did not return to the circuit until early June at The Principal Charity Classic in Iowa where he finished T-16th.
2012 Notes: Made just 15 starts during the year, the fewest in a season on the PGA Tour Champions, and missed on a chance to finish in the top 30 because of chronic back trouble. Last appearance of the year came at the SAS Championship where he withdrew prior to completing the first round. Underwent back surgery on Nov. 1 at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Came close to posting his first career PGA Tour Champions win when he and teammate John Cook finished one stroke shy of the winning team of Michael Allen-David Frost in the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf in Savannah.
2013 Notes: Spent most of the season working to regain his form after undergoing back surgery in November 2012. Made two starts early in the year before missing more than four months with the back issue. Returned in late June, at the Constellation Senior Players Championship, and played a dozen events after his return. Best showing came near his home when he was T-30th at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open after successive rounds of 70.
2014 Notes: Played his first full season in more than a year as he continued his comeback following back surgery in November 2012. His 23 starts were the most since 2010. In those 23 starts, his lone top 10 came in October, finishing T-10th at the SAS Championship. Was 55th on the money list and 77th in Schwab rankings.
2015 Notes: Teamed with John Cook for a T-5th finish at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf. Finished the year 66th on the money list and 74th on the Schwab ranking.
2016 Notes: Had his best finish in a stroke-play event in nearly five years when he finished T-4th at the Mitsubishi Electric Classic near Atlanta. Was able to top that with a T-3rd at the Regions Tradition. Had another good finish in the U.S. Senior Open finishing T-6th his 3rd top-10 of the year. In 25 starts finished 36th on the money list and 32nd in the Schwab Rankings.
2017 Notes: Has had a slow start to his year, in 23 starts had two top-tens, T-3rd at the DIck's Sporting Gold Open and T-10th Shaw Charity Classic. Finished 45th on the money list.
2018 Notes: Played in 23 PGA Tour Champions events with one top-ten finish. Best finish, T-8th at the Ally Challenge. In his 11th season on PGA Tour Champions, he advanced to the first Playoffs event, the Dominion Energy Charity Classic and finished 58th in the standings.
