Kyle Stanley was the runner-up in the 2011 John Deere Classic and is back for his fifth start in this event.
Stanley nearly made the JDC his first PGA TOUR win until Steve Stricker made an unlikely birdie from off the green after driving the ball into the fairway bunker on the 18th hole. The Clemson product's other three starts at TPC Deere Run have yielded a T34 in 2009, a T19 in 2012 and a missed cut last year. While 2013-14 has been a disaster for the once rising star, he offered a ray of hope at The Greenbrier Classic with a T35 last week that included a third-round 66. It was his best finish since a T19 in the CIMB Classic back in October of 2013. Jul 7 - 9:24 PM

Kyle Stanley needs a spark in his fifth trip to TPC River Highlands at the Travelers Championship.

Stanley tied for 19th in his first attempt back in 2009, but has missed two cuts and sprinkled in a T60 in his three subsequent attempts. At 165th in the current FedExCup standings, he's in serious jeopardy of losing his PGA TOUR full status. His two-year exemption for his 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open win ends at the end of this season.

Kyle Stanley blew up for a 6-over-par 37-39=76 in his third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship to post 6-over 216 after three rounds, four strokes outside the 54-hole cut line.

Because more than 78 professionals survived the 36-hole cut, a second cut of low 70 pros and ties occurred today. Stanley matched his season low with a 4-under 66 in the second round to secure a payday, but he squared six bogeys and a double today to finish alone in last among the MDFers. He entered the week ranked 155th in FedExCup points, so if he doesn't get his act in gear, he's headed to the Tour Finals. Stanley has gone 15 consecutive starts without a top 50 and missed seven cuts during that stretch. The following nine also failed to earn a tee time in the final round at TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas: 213--Ryo Ishikawa; Daniel Chopra; Kevin Foley ... 214--Jhonattan Vegas; Will Wilcox; Alex Cejka ... 215--Johnson Wagner; Mark Anderson; Eric Axley.

Kyle Stanley tied for sixth in the 2013 Wells Fargo Championship and returns for another try this week.

Stanley's T6 came when Quail Hollow's greens were at their worst, which actually played to his favor. He's known as a poor putter, ranking 206th in strokes gained this season. Rather than focusing on the T6, as closer look at his T45 in 2011 and a missed cut in 2012 are probably better comparisons for what he faces this week.

Kyle Stanley returns for his fourth consecutive Shell Houston Open.

Stanley hasn't improved over his time at the Golf Club of Houston, tying for 60th in his first appearance before a T75 in 2012 and a missed cut in 2013. His current form is equally grim, missing the cut in his last four events. He hasn't cracked the top 50 during 2013-14 season since a T19 at the CIMB Classic in October of 2013.

Kyle Stanley has been removed from the published field of this week's Puerto Rico Open.

He's 5-for-10 on the season but has just one top-30 payday, that a T19 at the CIMB Classic. Stanley is 131st in FedExCup points and hasn't broken par in his last six rounds. He's also scored over par in the opening round in each of his last six starts (dating back to the OHL Classic at Mayakoba), so he's putting immediate pressure on himself. Just as it was the case in 2013, his putting remains the weakest facet in his game.

The third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has been suspended due to darkness at 5:43 p.m. PT.

The wind delay of two hours and 19 minutes earlier on Saturday prevented everyone from wrapping up their third round. Kyle Stanley was one of the last players to sneak 18 holes in before the horn sounded, and his even-par 215 tally appears safe for a final-round tee time. The top 60 and ties will make the playing cut, and even-par is currently the last number inside at T53. (Ten of the 13 on the number have completed 54 holes.) Those finishing 61st-70th and ties will be tagged with a MDF and granted official money and FedExCup points. The third round is scheduled to resume at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday. The final round is slated to commence at 9:00 a.m.

Kyle Stanley failed to close the deal at the 2012 Farmers Insurance Open, and returns to seek his vengeance at Torrey Pines this week.

Stanley infamously blew a chance at his first PGA TOUR win in 2012 when he suffered a triple-bogey eight on the 72nd hole of the tournament, and then lost in a playoff to Brandt Snedeker. Stanley missed the cut badly in his return last year. It appears that he's intentionally lightening his schedule this season, as this is the latest he's kicked off a calendar year in his PGA TOUR career.
Jan 22 - 9:16 PM

Kyle Stanley twice finished third during the 2013 PGA TOUR season, and his 2013-14 journey is off and running as well.

Following Stanley's 2012 win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, he went on a dry spell and didn't find another top 10 until his third-place finish in New Orleans in April of 2013. He stayed hot, tying for sixth at the Wells Fargo Championship in his next start, and then finished third at the Memorial three starts after that. The new season has seen him produce four paychecks in five starts, including a T19 at the CIMB Classic. The key with his game is quite simple. The few weeks he putts well can be special. Because of that, he's a much better full-season own than weekly play.

Kyle Stanley turned in a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his third round of the CIMB Classic to lay dibs on the early 54-hole clubhouse lead at 8-under 208.

There's a decent chance that he won't sit inside the top 10 at the end of the day, but he's earned attention right now. Stanley totaled 12 greens in regulation on Saturday and holed six birdies, including four in a row beginning at the second hole. He squared to bogeys. He's converted 15 birdies against seven bogeys through three rounds.

Kyle Stanley followed his opening 66 at the Open with a 2-under-par 35-34=69 to reach the midpoint in 7-under 135, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He squared four bogeys today, including a three-putt from 6'10" at the par-4 17th hole -- some habits are impossible to break -- but he garnered six birdies to ease the pain. His only notable conversion measured 12'5" at the fifth hole.

Kyle Stanley turned in a 5-under-par 35-31=66 for his opening round of the Open, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Stanley battled a pesky putter for most of the 2013 season, but he managed to win over on three occasions, posting a pair of third-place finishes to sandwich a T6, all within a five-start span. Today at CordeValle, he went 5-for-16 in par-breaker opportunities. His conversions included a birdie roll from 17'10" at the 12th hole and an eagle putt that disappeared at 15 from 33'2". He didn't hurt himself off the tee, either, splitting 11 (of 14) fairways.

With a closing 73 at the RBC Canadian Open, Kyle Stanley faded to finish with a share of 12th place, but he has qualified for the PGA Championship via a special money list that ended with the RBC Canadian Open.

The top 70 in earnings beginning with the last year's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and Reno-Tahoe Open earned tee times at Oak Hill next week. Twenty-eight golfers including Stanley (59th in earnings) were not yet eligible. The remaining to receive an exemption into the PGA are: [* - 2012 Ryder Cuppers that had pending eligibility but are now exempt] ... Lee Westwood* (14th), Jason Day (16th), Jim Furyk* (20th), Hunter Mahan (21st), Jimmy Walker (22nd), Henrik Stenson (28th), Luke Donald* (33rd), Charles Howell III (34th), Robert Garrigus (35th), Brendon de Jonge (38th), Zach Johnson* (39th), Graham DeLaet (42nd), Scott Stallings (43rd), Chris Kirk (45th), Scott Piercy (49th), David Lingmerth (50th), Josh Teater (52nd), Rickie Fowler (55th), Ryan Palmer (56th), Jason Dufner* (57th), Bo Van Pelt (58th), Charley Hoffman (62nd), Roberto Castro (63rd), Jason Kokrak (64th), Chris Stroud (65th), Kevin Chappell (66th), John Huh (67th), Kevin Stadler (68th) and Marc Leishman (70th).

Kyle Stanley had it clicking on all cylinders in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open in his 6-under-par 31-35=66, improving to 11-under 205.

Stanley was off to a hot start, with a birdie at the par-4 first and a chip-in eagle on the par-5 second. He answered a bogey at the sixth with birdies on seven and eight and then birdied two of Glen Abbey's three par 5s on the back nine. He landed 15 GIR and gained just under a stroke with the flat stick on the afternoon. While he's missed his last four cuts, his second-round 69 at Muirfield last week signaled that his game was close. He's finished third on two occasions in 2013.

Kyle Stanley posted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, finishing three strokes in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Since his second third-place finish of the year at the Memorial, Stanley has a solo 73rd (U.S. Open) and four consecutive missed cuts. However, he carded a 69 in his second round at Muirfield last week to suggest that he's turning a corner. The jury will remain out until he signs tomorrow's scorecard, but he can build on the confidence of six birdies today, just one of which of note, measuring 12'7" at the 10th hole.
