Mudd was born in Louisville, Kentucky. He attended Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia, where he developed into an honored amateur golfer.[1]

Mudd won four PGA Tour events during his career. His top year was 1990, when he finished 5th on the final money list, and won two of the Tour's most prestigious non-majors: the Nabisco Championship and The Players Championship. His best finish in a major championship was T-4 at both The Masters in 1987 and the 1990 Open Championship.[2]

Mudd would then become burned out from the grind of Tour play, and would reduce his schedule before leaving the PGA Tour in 1996. He made his Champions Tour debut on April 30, 2010 at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic, and played in a limited number of Champions Tour events that year. His best finish is T-20 at the 2010 Regions Charity Classic.

Mudd currently resides in Finchville, Kentucky.
