Matt Kuchar is a professional golfer from USA

Matt Kuchar is a professional golfer who hails from the United States of America and is a member of the US PGA Tour, having previously started out as a member of the Nationwide Tour.

Till date, Kuchar has won seven titles on the US PGA Tour with these wins coming in a period of twelve years. When he burst on to the scene at the beginning of the century, he enjoyed some success, albeit briefly, but later suffered such a dip in form that at one point, he was struggling to maintain his status as a member of the US PGA Tour, which would have been a huge blow for his aspirations to become a top golfer.

However, he managed to reinvent himself with a lot of graft and practice as well as with a new one-plane swing that saw him get back to his best. Since he changed his swing, Matt Kuchar has seen his game reach new heights and results have improved as well and he is now considered as one of the most consistent players on the US PGA Tour alongside the likes of Phil Mickelson and Jim Furyk. He has also earned around $ 15 million in prize money in his career and went on to become the top earner on the US PGA Tour in 2010.

His biggest win so far remains The Players Championship triumph in 2012, the flagship event of the US PGA Tour which saw him jump to number five in the Official Golf World Rankings and since then, he has spent a total of forty weeks ranked inside the top 10.

However, his record at the major championships remain dismal and apart from a T3 at the Augusta National in 2012, he has nothing worthy to show for his efforts though.
