His professional victories were achieved at the following events:
PGA TOUR; 2003  HP Classic of New Orleans.  2004  Bank of America Colonial.
Nationwide TOUR: 1997  NIKE TOUR Championship.

Victory at last week's Bank of America Colonial moved him up from 44th to 24th in the World Rankings, from 28th to 9th on the 2004 Money List ($1,948,266) and puts him into the 9th of the ten automatic qualifying places for this year's Ryder Cup. He's having a good year with 8 top-25s including 3 top-10s so far.

In his six years on Tour he has had 46 top-tens but only the two victories and openly admitted, when interviewed after his Colonial win, that this has probably been due to a lack of belief in himself. Maybe now that he has won for the second consecutive year he will accept the idea that he is capable of winning and we'll see him pick up more trophies in the future.
