WORLD GOLF RANKING: 13 (as of Feb. 13, 2011)
GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Matt Kuchar improved incrementally from 2007 to 2009, and then in 2010, he took a decisive step, doing what was predicted of him 13 years ago and what no one thought he would do six years ago. He played with a consistency that was nothing short of brilliant. He won the PGA Tour money title, had the lowest scoring average and won his third career tournament title. Top 10s in two of the last three majors only whetted his appetite. Look for that success to continue as Matt attempts to build on a dream year.
