2013 Current Year PGA Tour Highlights – as of June 5, 2013
First top-10 finish of the season came at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship in Marana, Ariz. In his seventh start in the event, lost to Jason Day, 1-up in the quarterfinals, good for a T5, his best finish in the event.

In just his second stroke-play start of the season, claimed a T9 at The Honda Classic for the second consecutive year. Opened with a 3-under 67 on the challenging PGA National Champion Course to claim the top-10, his third consecutive in the event (T6 in 2011).

One week later opened the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship by playing his first 46 holes without a bogey (a personal-best PGA TOUR streak) but followed with three bogeys and two double bogeys on his final 26 holes to finish T3. Paired with Tiger Woods for both rounds on the weekend, his most costly mishap was a double bogey-6 on the 72nd hole Sunday, dropping him from solo third into a four-way tie for third. Still managed his second consecutive top-10 finish in a World Golf Championships event after finishing T5 at the Accenture Match Play Championship. In seven previous appearances at the Cadillac Championship, his best finish was a T6 (2005 and 2010).

After entering the final round of the RBC Heritage trailing Charley Hoffman by four strokes, carded a final-round, 2-under 69 to finish tied with Webb Simpson at 9-under 275. Then defeated Simpson on the first extra hole (No. 18) with a par-4 for his second PGA TOUR victory (2010 U.S. Open, 2013 RBC Heritage). One of 11 RBC Golf Ambassadors on the PGA TOUR. His victory was the third consecutive by an international player on the PGA TOUR, after Americans won the first 14 events. Win was the 10th by an international player at the RBC Heritage and the first by a player from Northern Ireland. In three prior starts at Harbour Town GL, six of his 10 rounds were over 74, including a 7-over 78 in the final round in 2005. En route to his victory, carded all four rounds at par or better (71-67-68-69).

A year after losing to Nicolas Colsaerts in the finals of the Volvo World Match Play Championship, he again made it to the final match but this time was victorious, beating Thongchai Jaidee, 2 and 1, at Bulgaria's Thracian Cliffs Golf and Beach Resort. Defeated Branden Grace (3 and 2) earlier that morning in the semifinal round. Also enjoyed match victories during the week against Chris Wood (5 and 3), Stephen Gallacher (4 and 2), Bo Van Pelt (1-up) and Colsaerts (2 and 1)
