Matt Kuchar is a professional golfer from the United States of America who is currently a member of the US PGA Tour and has previously played on the Nationwide Tour.
He has won five titles on the PGA Tour, with these wins coming within a span of 11 years on the Tour. Having turned professional in 2000, Kuchar enjoyed a brief period of success in the early 2000s before suffering such a slump in form that he was almost struggling to maintain his status as a pro on the Tour.
He worked immensely hard on his swing and built a new and improved one-plane swing and from 2008, this new swing began to pay dividends as his results began to improve. Having rediscovered himself, Matt Kuchar is considered as one of the most consistent and reliable players on the US PGA Tour, and he has gone on to earn a whopping $ 15 million in prize money in his career and between 2009 and 2012, he has recorded a massive 30 finishes in the top 10. He even finished on the top of the money list on the US PGA Tour in 2010.
The biggest win that Kuchar has won is The Players Championship, the biggest event on the US PGA Tour, which he won in 2012. On the back of that win, Kuchar scaled a career high ranking of five in the Official Golf World Rankings. He has also gone on to spend over 40 weeks inside the top 10 of the rankings.
Matt Kuchar won his first title on the World Golf Championship when he defeated Hunter Mahan in the playoff final of the World Golf Championship Accenture Match Play Championship. Kuchar has also gone on to win a title on the Web.com Tour as well but is yet to win a Major title.
