Rise: He shot a 59 in 1999, earned the No. 1 world ranking, won the 2001 Open Championship and captured 13 PGA Tour titles between 1997 and 2001.

Fall: He fell to 80th on the money list in 2002 and 203rd in 2003, left and returned to the game multiple times over the next few years and failed to earn his tour card in 2010.

The latest: He's still trying to return to form and has played four events on the tour so far this year, missing the cut in all four.
