Kuchar briefly enjoyed success in the early 2000s before suffering a slump where he struggled to maintain his playing status on the PGA Tour. He rejuvenated himself from 2008 onward leading to improved results. Kuchar was the PGA Tour’s leading money winner in 2010.
Kuchar won The Players Championship in 2012, the flagship event of the PGA Tour, his biggest tournament victory to date. As a result, he moved to a career high number five in the world ranking and has spent over 40 weeks ranked inside its top-10. In February 2013, Kuchar won his first World Golf Championship event, defeating Hunter Mahan in the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.
At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Kuchar won the first Olympic bronze medal awarded for golf since the 1904 Summer Olympics.
With Sergio García winning the 2017 Masters Tournament and Steve Stricker playing part-time on the PGA Tour Champions, Kuchar is the highest-earning active full-time PGA Tour player without a Major championship win, with career earnings of over $38 million.
