Matt Kuchar

Matthew Gregory Kuchar (born June 21, 1978) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour and formerly the Nationwide Tour. He has won seven times on the PGA Tour, with these wins spanning over 12 years. He is renowned as one of the most consistent players on the tour, having earned over $30 million in prize money and recorded over 80 top-10 finishes.

Kuchar won The Players Championship in 2012, the flagship event of the PGA Tour, his biggest tournament victory to date.[1] As a result, he moved to a career high number five in the world rankings 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 ended 2017 as the highest-earning active full-time PGA Tour player without a major championship win, with career earnings of over $41 million. The closest he has come was his second placed finish in the 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Golf Club.
