This has been an almost near perfect month for Matt Kuchar, finishing in the top 5 at each event. Many people would assume that the golf courses Kuchar has played fit his playing style, but that isn’t the case at all. TPC San Antonio, the Golf Club of Houston, Augusta National, and Harbour Town Golf link have nothing in common. They all have different weather, different grasses, and all play to different strengths.
“It’s amazing to have four straight weeks of changes on four completely different golf courses,” said Kuchar, who now has eight top 10s in 11 starts this season. “I take a lot of pride in playing good week in and week out. This has been some excellent play.”
For the last 5 years Matt Kuchar has been the most consistent player on TOUR, having just two missed cuts in 63 starts.
