A quick look at Matt Kuchar in the two years leading up to the 2017 Presidents Cup.
Kuchar, 39, was part of the thrilling drama at The Open at Birkdale, pushing Jordan Spieth all the way to the 18th hole before finishing second. A seven-time TOUR winner, Kuchar also finished T4 at the Masters, T16 at the U.S. Open and T9 at the PGA Championship while making 18 cuts in 22 starts this season before heading into the FedExCup Playoffs. All he did last season was make 24 cuts in 26 starts and take home the bronze medal in golf at the Rio Olympic Games. He went 0-2-1 at the 2015 Presidents Cup.
Best results: 2nd, The Open Championship; T4, Masters Tournament and the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Starts: 25 Top 10s: 8 Highlights: Coming so close to his first major at Royal Birkdale was painful, but he performed admirably against Jordan Spieth, who authored a miraculous finish to win his third major championship. He finished in the top 10 in three majors for the first time in his career.
