Tiger Woods Beats Matt Kuchar in Open Championship Tune-Up
For those of you worrying about whether or not Tiger Woods is ready to go at the Open Championship, you shouldn’t. Matt Kuchar can tell you first-hand how good Woods is...
In the past month or so things haven’t exactly gone Matt Kuchar’s way. He finished 2 strokes back at the Texas Open. At the Houston Open, he found himself in a playoff, only to lose on a holed chip shot by Matt Jones. At the Masters last week, a four putt on the fourth hole was his undoing.
But this week at the RBC Heritage, something finally went Matt Kuchar’s way.
Matt Kuchar hit an incredible bunker shot on No. 18 to win the RBC Heritage on Sunday. Video of his hole out of bunker shot for birdie.
Kuchy Kuchy Koo!
This year’s Masters has been nothing short of amazing. I don;t think I’ve ever seen a Masters with so many different things to talk about. Some of the best players in the world such as Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Jason Dufner all missed the cut and Rory Mcilroy barely made it himself. You got two guys in their 50′s playing terrific golf in Freddie Couples...
Matt Kuchar will be entering the final round one stroke back of the lead, but it was an up and down day on Saturday that got him there. On Saturday, Kuchar hit this putt on #9 at Augusta and almost sank it. Unfortunately for him, his miss trickled past the hole and came to rest some 40 some-odd feet past the hole.

Matt Kuchar made the most of his short day at The Barclays.
Kuchar didn't tee off until Friday afternoon at Liberty National and knew he had no chance to finish. He could barely see his ball cross the water and set up a two-putt birdie on the 13th hole that gave him the outright lead, and there was enough light coming from lower Manhattan across the Hudson River to hit his tee...
Matt Kuchar knows how it feels to make clutch birdies at Oak Hill.
And to be outdone by another player.
Fifteen years ago, he lost a classic match-play duel to then-teen sensation Sergio Garcia in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Amateur on the course that's hosting this week's PGA Championship.
Garcia won 2 and 1 that day in 1998, when Kuchar was the defending champion....
Matt Kuchar was 10-under par on the 16th green when the second round of the Colonial was suspended Friday night because of an impending storm system.
There were 18 groups still on the course, three still with eight holes to play, when play was stopped at 6:38 p.m. The second round at Hogan's Alley will be completed Saturday morning.
Kuchar had a one-stroke lead over Graham...

Some call it the “fifth major,” while others simply call it The Players Championship. No matter how you want to look at it, it’s one of the toughest courses for the best players in the world to grind through.
This weekend, it was all about Matt Kuchar, the twelve year pro who doesn’t have the prettiest game, but whose consistent play helped him pass the young guns for his...

If Matt Kuchar is still trying to erase his agony at Augusta, this could be the perfect week for it.
Kuchar is one of few marquee names at the Texas Open that starts Thursday. That could bode well for his chances after his near miss at the Masters two weeks ago, when he finished in a tie for third.
Johnson Wagner and defending champion Brendan Steele are the other headliners in...
