What did Matt Kuchar do when he needed to take his game to the next level? He defied convention and completely reinvented his swing. Starting with a clean slate, Kuchar committed to the change and has since established himself as one of the world’s top golfers.
A seven-time PGA TOUR winner and one of the sport’s top competitors, Kuchar is off to a strong start this season with four top-25 finishes already under his belt. Last year, Kuchar continued his established consistency on the course with 14 top-25 finishes, including 10 tournaments inside the top 10. His victory at the 2014 RBC Heritage came following top-5 finishes in each of the previous three tournaments, including a tie for fifth at the Masters.
Kuchar’s career highlights also include six additional PGA TOUR titles, and he is one of only three players to have won THE PLAYERS Championship, a World Golf Championships (WGC) title, and a PGA TOUR play-off event.
He has also competed on every US Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup team since 2010. Kuchar’s memorable 2010 campaign was marked by his achievement of more top-10 finishes (11) than any other golfer as well as his first Ryder Cup selection. He also earned numerous accolades that year, including the Vardon Trophy and Byron Nelson Award for lowest scoring average, as well as the PGA TOUR’s Arnold Palmer Award for finishing first on the Money List.
Prior to turning pro in 2000, Kuchar graduated from Georgia Tech, where he was a two-time, first-team All-American golfer. He was the US Amateur champion in 1997 and received the 1998 Haskins Award as the nation’s top collegiate golfer. Additionally, Kuchar was the low amateur at both the Masters and the US Open in 1998. A native of Winter Park, Florida, he currently resides in Sea Island, Georgia, with his wife and two sons.

For most of his life, Brandt Snedeker played, practised and analysed the game of golf – it was everything to him. He was, in a word, obsessed. But despite his singular focus, success remained elusive.
In 2011, after his first child was born, Snedeker had an epiphany. He realised there was more to life than golf, so he made a huge change. He began to focus on balancing his work and his life. He cites this change as the catalyst for increased success on the course, including several tournament wins.
Snedeker is currently the 15th ranked golfer in the world and in his 13th full season on the PGA TOUR.
On 31 January 2016, he won the Farmers Insurance Open – his eighth PGA TOUR victory – and in 2015, won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Snedeker enjoyed exceptional years in 2012 and 2013, which included victories at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, RBC Canadian Open, Farmers Insurance Open, the 2012 TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, and the 2012 FedExCup. He was also named in his first Ryder Cup team in 2012. Snedeker currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife and two young kids.
