World No. 215 Kyle Stanley orchestrated a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 6-under 210, up five spots to T8 with play still in progress.
The 29-year-old is making his fifth appearance, first since a missed cut in 2013. This will be his second cash, joining a T12 in 2011 (74-73-66-73). The Clemson product checked in at 58th in the FedExCup standings, going 8-for-10 with four top 25s and one top 10, a T7 at the Shriners back in October. After opening in 73-68, he began on 3-under (T13) and squared two bogeys and a double bogey-7, overshadowed with seven birdies, including three straight on holes 3-5. Stanley split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.199 strokes around-the-green but gaining 2.769 on the greens, highlighted by a 38-footer for birdie-3 at three.

Taking on the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club, Kyle Stanley gave himself an early birthday present by firing a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round two of The RSM Classic, reaching 10-under 132 through two days of action.

The Clemson product continued his aerial assault on Sea Island Golf Club. After finding 12 fairways and 16 greens in round one, he improved by one in each metric during Friday's round which was played on the host course. Despite missing just one green in regulation, he converted a mediocre five birdies on the day. The culprit appeared to be the flat stick, as he walked off the Seaside Course losing 1.784 strokes putting on the day. Stanley will celebrate his 30th birthday tomorrow, and will also look to maintain a spot inside the top 10 (currently T7). In three previous RSM Classic appearances he's signed just 1-of-6 rounds in red numbers.

Kyle Stanley tied the course record at Sea Island Golf Club's Plantation Course with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 during round one of The RSM Classic, joining Cameron Tringale with a very early share of the clubhouse lead with play still underway.

The Plantation Course has only been used since last year, but Kyle Stanley tied the course record set by Kevin Kisner last year (R1). He is joined by Cameron Tringale who also started at 9:30 a.m. CT this morning, and fired a 7-under 65, as well, to share the course record. During Stanley's opening round, he started on the back nine and circled birdies on both of the outward par 5s. From there he blitzed the inward nine, circling five more birdies, without dropping a shot. The 28-year-old made it look easy as he peppered 16 greens in regulation and missed just two fairways on the way. Stanley has never finished better than T33 here in three tries, but he could be in for a personal best if today's round is any indication of what is to come this week.

Kyle Stanley authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to finish off his sixth appearance on 15-under 269, up five places to T7 with play still in progress.

The 28-year-old, who celebrates his birthday Nov. 18th, is on pace to eclipse a previous best of T10 in 2011. He's going to bag his first top 10 on TOUR since the 2014 Barracuda Championship 43 starts ago. The Clemson product landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.856 strokes tee-to-green. He circled four birdies, three conventional from inside of five feet, for 1.800 putts per GIR and -0.392 SG: Putting, adding a 22-footer from the fringe at the par-4 15th. Stanley arrived off a T22 three weeks ago at the Safeway in his first start of the season.

Kyle Stanley continued his march up the leaderboard at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, posting a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during round two, climbing to 8-under 134 at halftime.

The Washington native traded six birdies with two bogeys on the day. He averaged 324.5 yards on measured drives while splitting 10 (of 14) fairways, gaining 1.396 strokes off-the-tee. From there he could only manage 13 greens in regulation, but his flat stick came to the rescue quite a few times. On the round, he splashed home six putts from outside six feet to maintain momentum. Stanley posted a T10 in Las Vegas during the 2011 edition, so gamers should not be surprised if he maintains this pace over the weekend.

Kyle Stanley stamped a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of the Safeway Open, finding himself three strokes off the early pace set by Scott Piercy.

The 28-year-old opened his day with a 31'11" birdie bomb at the par-4 10th hole and never let his foot off the gas. He landed 14 greens in regulation but really made his bank with the flat stick. After the opening hole, he added four more holed putts from outside nine feet, two of them from outside 20 feet. The Clemson product walked off the course gaining 3.28 strokes putting on the round. Stanley is making his debut at Silverado Resort and Spa this week, but he's off and running through day one.

Kyle Stanley capped off his week at the Wyndham Championship with a 2-under-par 32-36=68 to reach 12-under 268 on the week, moving him from 127th to 116th in the FedExCup standings, earning a spot in the FedExCup Playoffs and retaining his PGA TOUR card for the 2016-17 season.

The 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open winner went through plenty of highs and lows before losing his status following the 2014 campaign. He took to the Tour in 2015 and played his way back to the big stage during the Tour Finals. That hard work paid off on the PGA TOUR, posting a 17-for-27 record this season to finish 116th in the FEC standings. The 28-year-old will now head to the Black Course at Bethpage State Park for The Barclays. Stanley is 1-for-2 at the venue, with a 53rd-place finish at the 2009 U.S. Open but a missed cut at the 2012 Barclays.

Kyle Stanley styled a bogey-free 5-under-par 31-35=66 in the second round of the John Deere Classic to reach the halfway point on 9-under 133, up eight places to solo fourth with play suspended for the evening due to darkness.

The 28-year-old played out his final hole, the par-4 18th, after the horn had sounded. He'll get to sleep in on Saturday now as those stranded will be returning at 7:00 a.m. CT Saturday. The Tour grad played 27 holes on Friday, all blemish-free. He completed nine holes of his first round in 3-under with three birdie-3s, and then carded four more par breakers in R2, all 3s again. The Clemson product circled birdie-3s on Nos. 1, 6 and 14, and added an eagle-3 at the second from 23'2". He landed 11 (of 14) fairways in R2 and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.720 strokes approaching-the-green.

Kyle Stanley returns for his fourth playing of the RBC Canadian Open and second at the par-72 Glen Abbey Golf Club.

Inclusive of this week, there are five tournaments remaining before the start of the FedExCup Playoffs and Stanley arrives precariously at No. 122 in the FEC standings. The Gig Harbor, Washington, native and resident has missed the Playoffs in each of the two prior seasons. He's 15-for-23 in 2015-16 with three top 25s and a season-best T13 at the Sony back in Jan. The 28-year-old is 3-for-3 in the Canadian Open with T61 on debut in 2012 (Hamilton G&CC), T12/2013 (Glen Abbey), and T12/2014 at Royal Montreal. He's had bittersweet results in each of his last two editions, sitting solo third thru 54 holes in 2014 and closing in 2-over 72, and was T5 thru 54 holes in 2013 (Glen Abbey) and closed in 1-over 73.

Kyle Stanley smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open for a 36-hole total of 3-under 141, up 54 spots on the live leaderboard to T20 and tied for the low lap in the clubhouse with Scott Langley, Nick Taylor and Tom Hoge.

The Tour grad opened his fourth VTO in 1-over 73 with five bogeys overshadowing four birdies and -2.588 strokes gained: tee-to-green. He rebounded in his second frame, landing 10 (of 14) fairways, 14 greens in regulation, and at last glance, 2.085 in SGTTG. The 28-year-old, who's quietly made seven of his last eight cuts, circled birdies on Nos. 2, 4, 11 and 16, including three from between 14 and 18 feet. He also dropped two par-saving six-footers to keep his card blemish-free.

After opening his fifth Shell Houston Open appearance in 69-72, Kyle Stanley tacked on a 4-under-par 33-35=68 for a three-day total of 7-under 209, up 21 spots on the live leaderboard to T13 and good for the low round in the clubhouse along with Kyle Reifers.

Stanley went off No. 10 tee in Saturday's third round but not before having to play four holes to complete his second round earlier in the day. Unfortunately, he played those four in 3-over, finishing up with a bogey and a double bogey-6 on 18. That behind him, it was on to his third frame where he striped 10 (of 14) fairways and mustered 12 greens in regulation. He circled three on his first half, all from between 12 and 18 feet, to outpace bogeys on 13 and 16 after failed scrambles. After the turn, the 28-year-old penciled birdies on 2, 4, 7 and 8 to erase bogey at the par-4 sixth (failed scramble). Stanley's season best on 12 starts is T13 at the Sony Open and his best at the SHO is T54 in his most-recent visit in 2014.

Kyle Stanley settled for a pair of paychecks during the fall to reach the new year ranked 113th in the FedExCup standings.

The 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open champion is still searching for his second trip to the winner's circle. The flat stick continues to hold him back as he annually finishes outside the top 150 in strokes gained:putting. Stanley sits at 21st in the Tour reshuffle meaning starts will not be scarce as long as he produces early in 2016.

Kyle Stanley added a 3-under-par 33-34=67 at Sea Island Resort's Plantation Course in today's second round of The RSM Classic.

Kyle Stanley submitted a 6-under-par 32-34=66 at Sea Island Resort's Plantation Course for his opening round of The RSM Classic.

He came within one stroke of the clubhouse lead with what is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since an opening 65 at the RBC Canadian Open in July of 2014. Stanley split 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation today. He picked off an eagle-3 (at the 18th hole where he made the turn) and six birdies to help offset consecutive bogeys on his inward side. This is just what the doctor ordered, too. He arrived in Georgia having cashed just once in his first three starts of 2015-16.

Kyle Stanley readies for his third RSM Classic after finishing T55 in 2014 and T54 in 2011.

Stanley played the 2014-15 season on Past Champion status and finished a career-worst 181st in the FedExCup standings, missing the Playoffs for a second consecutive year. Granted, he only got 12 starts and made eight cuts, three for top 25s, but no top 10s. It was his first season since joining the TOUR in 2011 that he failed to register a top-10 finish. The now 28-year-old, who's celebrating his birthday at the time of this writing, became a first-time Tour grad with three top-16 finishes in the Finals, good for 15th in Finals' money. In total, he made 10 starts on the developmental circuit and began his sixth TOUR season 22nd in the priority rankings. Stanley's 2015-16 has not begun well with T43 at the Shriners his only cash in three events.
