World No. 59 Kyle Stanley is at Quail Hollow Club for his third PGA Championship and checks in at 16th in the FedExCup standings.
This is the 29-year-old's third PGA with missed cuts in 2013 (Oak Hill) and 2012 (Kiawah Island). Overall, it's his 12th major appearance with four prior cashes and a best of T39 at the 2012 Open Championship. The Clemson product is 19-for-23 on the season with nine top 25s and five top 10s, highlighted by his come-from-behind win at the Quicken Loans four starts ago, beating Charles Howell III in a playoff. He chased that with T55 (John Deere), MC at The Open, his first major appearance since a MC at the 2013 PGA, and T41 last week at the WGC-Bridgestone (69-74-71-69), his first WGC since 2012.

Beginning the final round four shots back, World No. 94 Kyle Stanley styled a 4-under-par 33-33=66 to match playing competitor Charles Howell III on 7-under 273, and then defeated him with an up-and-down par on the first playoff hole, the par-4 18th, to win the Quicken Loans National.

The 29-year-old, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, claims his second TOUR title in 179 career events (175 pro), joining his win at the 2012 WM Phoenix Open 135 starts ago. At the WMPO, he came from eight back with 6-under 65 to win by one. After opening in 70-70-67, the Clemson product began T7, trailing leader David Lingmerth. Playing out of the fourth-to-last twosome, he bogeyed the par-4 first, but then played his final 17 in blemish-free 5-under, circling Nos. 5, 6, 8, 10 and 14, all from inside of 11 feet. In the playoff, both players missed the fairway and the GIR, with Stanley knocking in a par-saver from 4'10" for the trophy (Howell III missed a par-saver from 10'11"). He hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 GIR, posting 3.544 SG: Tee-to-Green and 0.902 SG: Putting. This was Stanley's fifth QLN and second top 25 (T22/2012) and his ninth top 25 of the season in 20 starts. It's his fifth top 10, eclipsing a previous-best T4 at THE PLAYERS, and improves to 1-1 in extra time.

World No. 94 Kyle Stanley fashioned a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National to post 3-under 207, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T7, two back of clubhouse leader Spencer Levin and four back of the leader on the course David Lingmerth, who has six holes remaining.

After opening with twin 70s, the 29-year-old improved to 4-for-5 at the QLN and is looking to improve on a previous-best T22 in 2012 (Congressional CC). He piped 12 (of 14) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation, gaining 1.718 strokes off-the-tee and 3.802 approaching-the-green. The Clemson product camouflaged a lone bogey-5 at No. 8 with four birdies at 6 (from 19'2"), 13, 14 and 16, recording 1.765 putts per GIR and -1.321 SG: Putting. He missed three scoring tries from inside of nine feet and five from inside of 13 feet.
Jul 1 - 6:22 PM

World No. 92 Kyle Stanley signed for a 3-under-par 32-35=67 after the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and a 54-hole total of 5-under 205, up 21 places to T13 with play still in progress.

This is the 29-year-old's fifth appearance with a best of T49 on debut in 2012. After opening in 72-66, he began on 2-under (T34), seven adrift of a trio of overnight co-leaders. The Clemson product was bogey-free 4-under thru 16 holes, circling Nos. 4 (from 14'0"), 5, 7 and 16, before suffering a lone drop at the par-4 17th that completed his scoring. He landed seven (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, gaining 4.024 strokes tee-to-green, but lost 0.068 around-the-green and 0.419 on-the-green.

Due to inclement weather, the final round of the Memorial Tournament was suspended at 4:18 pm ET with players being removed from the course. UPDATE: Play resumed at 5:35 pm. UPDATE #2: With play completed, Stanley finished in a four-way T6, five shy of champion Jason Dufner.

A total of 56 players (of 76) got their final rounds in the books prior to the horn sounding, including World No. 121 Kyle Stanley, who posted 8-under 280 after a 4-under-par 35-33=68, currently solo 8th. After opening in 74-67-71, he began T19 on 4-under, three adrift of the overnight top 10. The Clemson product found nine (of 14) fairways and just nine greens in regulation, gaining 1.944 strokes around-the-green. He outpaced four bogeys with six birdies and an eagle-3 at 11 (from 8'6"), the current leader in eagles with three. The 29-year-old carded five conventional birdies, each from 10 feet and in, adding a hole-out 3 from a greenside bunker (72'6" away) at the par-4 17th. This will be his eighth top 25 of the season in 17 starts and possibly a fourth top 10. Stanley's season best is T4 two starts ago at THE PLAYERS.
Jun 4 - 4:34 PM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 176 Kyle Stanley backed up with a 3-over-par 38-37=75 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to post 6-under 282, down three spots into a season-best two-way T4, four shy of champion Si Woo Kim, who shot 69 out of the penultimate twosome.

This was the 29-year-old's fourth appearance, first since a 71st-place finish in 2014, and brushes aside a previous-best T33 in 2013. It's his seventh top 25 of the season in 15 starts and third top 10, joining T8 at the Houston Open and T7 at the Shriners. After kicking off in 69-66, the Clemson product co-led at the midpoint and after a 72 in R3, co-led at the three-quarter mark. Playing out of the final twosome with co-leader J.B. Holmes (who shot 84), he conjured six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, posting -0.552 SG: Approach-the-Green and -1.394 SG: Total. Stanley outbalanced two birdies at 6 and 17 (he birdied 17 all four rounds) with five bogeys at 1, 3, 8, 10 and 14, eating a 2.177 SG: Putting. His lone TOUR title remains the 2012 Phoenix Open 130 starts ago.
May 14 - 8:37 PM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 176 Kyle Stanley rallied for an even-par 37-35=72 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to reach the three-quarter mark on 9-under 207, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with J.B. Holmes, who shot 70.

After opening in 69-66, the 29-year-old co-led with Louis Oosthuizen, two clear of Holmes. Playing out of the final twosome, he got off to a patchy start, sandwiching birdie-4 at two with bogeys at holes 1 (3-putt from 47'4"), 3 and 4 (3-putt from 56'8"). The Clemson product steadied from there, playing his final 14 holes in blemish-free 2-under, circling the par-3 eighth from 18'2" and the par-3 17th from 29 inches, the third straight lap he's birdied the famous island green. He peppered 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.923 putts per GIR and -0.540 SG: Putting. This is Stanley's second career 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 174th career start. He led the 2012 Farmers by five but closed in 2-over 74, losing in a 2-man playoff to Brandt Snedeker.

Kyle Stanley kept his foot on the gas in round two of THE PLAYERS, firing a 6-under-par 33-33=66, climbing to 9-under 135 at the midpoint to grab a share of the clubhouse lead with play winding down on Friday.

Stanley found a hot putter on Thursday and he kept that momentum rolling today, gaining 2.747 strokes putting in R1 and another 2.128 today. It was all about quantity of putts converted today, as he sank just two from outside six feet but he did splash home a 33'9" birdie bomb at the par-4 12th. Stanley is usually handcuffed by his putter, but he's certainly unleashing his full potential this week. Gamers should not expect lightning to strike three or four times in a row, but he's already positioned himself nicely so that he can cruise home from here. Stanley currently shares the clubhouse lead with Louis Oosthuizen. If he maintains this co-lead it will be his third 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR but first since the 2012 Farmers Insurance Open.
May 12 - 6:19 PM

Kyle Stanley rocketed out of the gates with a 3-under-par 31-38=69 during round one of THE PLAYERS Championship, claiming an early spot inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

The Clemson ball-striking specialist started his week with a four-hole birdie train and added a fifth at the par-4 sixth hole. Not known for his smooth putting stroke, Stanley's five-birdie start included four putts converted from outside 10 feet including a 46'1" birdie bomb at the par-3 third hole. Stanley slowed his pace as the round progressed, but still walked off the course gaining 2.771 strokes putting over the field. Today's round is the perfect example of what this ball-striker is capable of when the flat stick cooperates. In 10 previous rounds at TPC Sawgrass he's posted three rounds at 69 or better but also seven round of 73 or worse.

Overnight co-leaders Kyle Stanley and Ryan Ruffels handed in a 6-under-par 32-34=66 after the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 12-under 132, down four places to T5, three shy of 36-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith.

The pairing opened with 66 in alternate shot, co-leading with Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer, who coincidentally, also carded another 66 in four-ball action. Stanley kicked off the scoring in R2 with back-to-back birdies at Nos. 2 and 3, the latter from 17'8", and dropped in a third for the good from 12'5" at the par-4 fifth. Their lone drop came at the par-4 sixth, with both players failing to get up and down, with Ruffels getting on the board with a 2-putt birdie at the par-5 seventh and birdie-3 at eight (from 4'3"). On holes 9-14, Stanley's score only counted one time, a par 5 at the 11th, but Ruffels steadied pars at 10, 13 and 14, adding birdie-3 at the par-4 13th after nearly driving the green. Stanley finished the day with a walk-off 4 at the par-5 18th from 30'8".
Apr 28 - 8:14 PM

Playing alternate shot on day one of the Zurich Classic, Kyle Stanley and Ryan Ruffels blitzed TPC Louisiana with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to claim the early title of clubhouse leaders.

This duo opened their week on the 10th tee and rattled off four straight birdies to start the day. They settled for a 13'5" par saver at the par-3 14th, but added four more circles on the homeward nine. This team arrived with lofty expectations, tee-to-green, but their flat sticks would be the wildcard. They showed up in a big way today, converting six putts from outside eight feet on the day (three apiece). Ball-striking was still the main asset as they gave themselves 13 birdie looks from inside 25 feet today. Playing without any TOUR status, the 18-year-old Ruffels would love to maintain this momentum all week, while Stanley is still searching for his second career TOUR win, failing to reach the winner's circle since the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Perhaps two extra set of eyes will help him on the greens this week.
Apr 27 - 2:50 PM

World No. 195 Kyle Stanley backed up with a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in today's final round of the Shell Houston Open to finish on 10-under 278, down three places into a two-way T8, a distant 10 in arrears to champion Russell Henley, who shot 65.

This is the 29-year-old's fifth cash in six appearances, second top 25 (T19/2016) and first top 10. It's his second top 10 of the season in 12 starts (T7, Shriners) but sixth top 25 and climbs 17 places to 37th in the FedExCup standings. After kicking off in 66-71-71, the Clemson product began T5 on 8-under, nine back of overnight leader Sung Kang. He squared bogey-5s at Nos. 1, 5 and 18, in between, circling holes 7, 8, 13, 15 and 17, each from inside of 11 feet. Stanley landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and 32 putts total. He 3-putted the par-5 fourth (from 63'6") for bogey and missed two scoring tries from inside of eight feet, finishing the week with 16 birdies versus six bogeys.
Apr 2 - 7:12 PM

World No. 195 Kyle Stanley pieced together a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Shell Houston Open to reach 8-under 208, up two places to T5 with play still in progress.

The 29-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and just 10 greens in regulation, losing 0.766 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 1.833 around-the-green. For the third lap in a row, he's squared just one bogey, but after opening with seven birdies in R1, circled just two for a second consecutive lap. The Clemson product squared the par-4 third (failed sand save), but played his final 15 holes in blemish-free 2-under, circling the par-5 eighth from 5'11" at the par-4 12th from 5'8".
Apr 1 - 5:51 PM

Kyle Stanley had to settle for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his second round at the Shell Houston Open, dropping three spots on the live leaderboard to T6.

He's still on page one as the morning wave finishes off but at 7-under 137 the Clemson grad is now nine behind leader Sung Kang having started the day just four off the pace. Stanley hit 16 greens in regulation for the second 18 running after piping 11 (of 14) fairways but the putts wouldn't drop. He did hole from 10'8 at No. 4 for birdie but his next deviation from par wouldn't come until the 16th hole. Unfortunately, that was bogey-4 after he failed to get up and down from sand. At least he walked off on a positive note after sinking an 11'2" birdie at the 18th to ensure his second sub-par round. Stanley was T17 at Bay Hill on his last start and took T19 in this event last year so had converging trends coming into Houston.
Mar 31 - 2:49 PM

Kyle Stanley styled a 6-under-par 32-34=66 during round one of the Shell Houston Open, claiming a share of third place on the early leaderboard.

The Clemson product arrived with a ranking inside the top 10 for both strokes gained off-the-tee and strokes gained approaching-the-green. He's been putting on ball-striking clinics all season and today was no different. He split 13 (of 14) fairways en route to 16 greens in regulation. The difference today was that putts were falling as he sank four putts from outside 10 feet including the most notable 55'3" birdie bomb at the par-3 16th. Stanley has finished outside the top 50 in four of his visits SHO appearances, but he's off to a much better start this time around.
