World No. 47 Kyle Stanley tossed up a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach 14-under 196, up three spots to solo 4th, two shy of 54-hole leader Tom Hoge.

After kicking off in 64-67, the 30-year-old began T7 on 9-under, four back of 36-hole leader Brian Harman. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.402 strokes off-the-tee and 3.158 tee-to-green. The Clemson product opened with eight straight pars before reeling off four straight birdies at holes 9-12, all from inside of 12 feet. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 13, but then walked off with eagle-3 at 18 from 10'1". Stanley posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.250 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.

World No. 47 Kyle Stanley submitted a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-34=67 after the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a 36-hole tally of 9-under 131, dropping three spots to T6, four back of leader Brian Harman.

The 30-year-old hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.220 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.321 around-the-green. He circled three at holes 7, 9 and 14, two 5-footers and a long of 15'5" at the par-4 14th, posting 1.857 putts per GIR and 1.306 SG: Putting with 30 total putts. The Clemson product's proximity to hole in R2 was 32'5", 35th-ranked, and didn't have any other scoring tries from inside of 10 feet other than at 7 and 9. He did knock in two par-savers from between eight and 10 feet, also draining a 12'11" par putt at 3.

Kyle Stanley caught fire with the flat stick in round one of the Sony Open in Hawaii, twirling a 6-under-par 30-34=64 to find himself in a share of second place with play still in progress.

The ball-striker from Clemson took a different route to scoring today. He found just seven (of 14) fairways en route to 13 greens in regulation. He made the most of his time once he reached the greens, though. By day's end, he rolled in nine putts from outside six feet, including a pair from outside 32 feet. The longest coming on his final hole of the day, a 41'6" eagle bomb at the par-5 ninth hole. Stanley walked into the scorer's tent with +4.967 strokes gained putting next to his name. Considering he's gained more than five strokes putting for the week just twice since 2012, gamers should expect a regression on the greens moving forward. In the meantime, Stanley is well-positioned on the leaderboard ahead of his round-two tee time.

Kyle Stanley bobbed-and-weaved his way toward a 3-under-par 34-36=70 during round one of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, throwing his name into contention early in the week.

The ball-striking specialist didn't quite live up to his reputation today. He found just 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.043 strokes approaching-the-green. Still, the Clemson product managed to drop just two shots along his route, offset by a five-pack of birdies. Only one of those conversions came from outside seven feet, rolling in a 12-foot birdie at the par-5 ninth. Stanley did not have much success in his Kapalua debut (30th place in 2013). He's off to a much better start this time around, and he hasn't even used his strongest asset yet (ball-striking).
Jan 4 - 9:25 PM

Kyle Stanley recovered from a disastrous front nine to earn T5 at the WGC-HSBC Champions; his final total of 8-under 280 completed with a last lap level-par 39-33=72 at Sheshan International GC.

The 29-year-old Clemson University grad holed from a deep greenside bunker on the second hole for an eagle-3 but it was the only good news of a shocking journey to the turn which included three bogeys at 1, 5 and 6, plus a second double bogey-6 of the week at the ninth (and fourth front nine double bogey of the tournament). He started the back nine in utterly contrasting style however. He chipped in from short of the par-4 tenth for birdie, at 11 he drained from 18'0" for his par breaker and at 13 he did the same but from 26'0". He parred the final five holes to safely mark his career-best finish in a World Golf Championship event (previously T16 in the 2012 Bridgestone Invitational). He was six swings back of winner Justin Rose.

Making his tournament debut, overnight leader and World No. 55 Kyle Stanley labored to a 3-over-par 37-36=73 in the second round of the TOUR Championship, falling 14 places to T15 on 3-under 137, four adrift of a trio of 36-hole leaders.

After a season-low 64 on Day 1, the 29-year-old led by two, his first 18-hole lead/co-lead of the season in his 29th start. Overall, it was his third 18-hole lead/co-lead in his 188th career event, first since the 2012 Farmers, previously 0-for-2 converting. The Clemson product hit nine (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 1.332 strokes tee-to-green and -4.133 SG: Total. He circled a lone birdie-3 at hole 3 from 29'2", outbalanced by four bogeys at 1, 4, 9 and 16, all failed scrambles. Stanley posted a dismal 1.900 putts per GIR and -2.801 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

Kyle Stanley breezed through East Lake Golf Club en route to a 6-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of the TOUR Championship, staking out his claim at the early clubhouse leader on Thursday afternoon.

The Clemson product split 11 (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation. That was good for 1.958 strokes gained off-the-tee and 2.632 strokes gained on approach. That kind of performance is nothing out of the ordinary for Stanley, but his short game was also smooth today, draining a 37'3" birdie bomb at the 4th, holing out from 13'1" (fringe) for birdie at the 12th, and then sinking an 18'4" birdie splash at the 15th. Stanley is making his tournament debut this week but had no trouble figuring things out today. This goes in the books as his low opening lap of the season and second lowest R1 of his career (10-under 62 at 2012 Farmers). If this lead holds it will be the third first-round lead/co-lead of his career.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 58 Kyle Stanley bobbed and weaved to a 3-under-par 37-31=68 on Day 2 at the Dell Technologies Championship to reach the midpoint on 7-under 135, two back of leader Jon Rahm.

The 29-year-old striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.347 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.436 around-the-green. He went out in 4-under, cancelling bogey-5 at 12 with birdies at 10, 11, 15, 17 and 18, but came home in 1-over, outbalancing birdies at 2, 4 and 6 with bogeys at 1, 3, 5 and 9 (3-putt from 46'4"). The Clemson product's split featured four conversions from between 10 and 21 feet, posting 1.462 putts per GIR and 0.478 SG: Putting, with 28 total putts.

Kyle Stanley breezed through TPC Boston en route to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the Dell Technologies Championship, placing him just one off the early leader Dustin Johnson.

Taking on some cool and gusty conditions at TPC Boston, Stanley rose to the top with stellar striking. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. He pelted 10 of his approach shots inside 21 feet, keeping things relatively stress-free throughout the round. On top of the smooth ball-striking, Stanley also sank a pair of birdies from the 15-to-21 foot range, gaining nearly two strokes putting over the field, at the time he signed his card. Arriving at TPC Boston ranked 19th in the FedExCup standings, there was no bubble pressure, allowing him to swing easy today. His career season continues as he nears closer to his first trip to East Lake.

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.

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.
