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.

Kyle Stanley renewed his TOUR status and said I do all within a two week period prior to his 2015-16 debut at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Washington native said his vows last weekend, so he's on full narrative street alert at TPC Summerlin this week. His 2014-15 season was another disappointment as he failed to reach The Barclays for the second consecutive season. Three top 20s in the Tour Finals did the trick and earned him the 22nd spot in the priority rankings. Life changing events like having a baby or getting married have a way of creating a spark, so look toward Stanley as a nice sleeper this week.

Kyle Stanley searches for a big week at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Stanley had a tough time finding starts this year after finishing last season ranked 158th on the FedExCup leaderboard. Playing on Past Champion status, he is 7-for-11 on the season, with three top 25s on his resume. Currently sitting in 181st in the FedExCup standings, the struggle to find starts will bleed into 2015-16 unless he finds a way to finish with a bang at Sedgefield Country Club.

Kyle Stanley is flashing form ahead of this week's inaugural Barbasol Championship.

Stanley arrives on the heels of back-to-back top 20s. They go in the books as his only finishes inside the top 30 this season. The question mark for this Washington native always lies in the flat stick. Gamers don't need to reach for Stanley this week in formats that use the Barbasol, but they should keep tabs on him to see if his form keeps snowballing.

Kyle Stanley cracks the field at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic via Past Champion status.

Stanley hasn't seen action on the PGA TOUR since a missed cut back in February at the AT&T Pebble Beach. He enters this week's festivities at 213th in the FedExCup standings and is making just his seventh TOUR start of the season. The 27-year-old began the year at No. 352 in the Official World Golf Ranking as has cratered to No. 640 mustering a season-best finish of T33 at the CIMB Classic last November. In total, he's 2-for-6 with his only other payday a T67 at the Farmers Insurance Open. He's also made five starts on the Tour collecting $15,917 in prize money, good for 113th on that tour's money list. Stanley finished T49 in the 2012 St. Jude and missed the cut last year by one stroke on rounds of 69-72.

Kyle Stanley took care of business at the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open and returns this week hungry for another taste of victory.

Stanley infamously took down this event in his debut after just missing out the week prior at the Farmer's Insurance Open. His return visits haven't been as profitable, securing a 74th place finish the next season and missing the cut last year. It always comes down to the putter for Stanley but your guess is as good as mine as to when it will actually show up again.

Kyle Stanley is gobbling up any and every start he can, as he is competing with just Past Champion status on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15.

Stanley nabbed three tee times in the fall portion of the 2014-15 season, missing two cuts and tying for 33rd in the CIMB Classic. Rather than take a long vacation, he spent two weeks in Australia competing in the BetEasy Masters (T35) and the Emirates Australian Open (T56). Those who follow him closely already know that the flat stick is what has ruined the last two years of his promising career. He ranked second-to-last in strokes gained: putting last season.

Kyle Stanley has been added to the published field of this week's CIMB Classic.

Stanley wasn't among the first six alternates when the field was released on Friday, but he was the beneficiary of a sponsor exemption that opened after two withdrawals before today's 9:00 a.m. local time deadline in Malaysia. He tied for 19th at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club last year. It would be one of just three top 25s in 28 starts.

With the 36-hole cut falling at the Tour Championship, the fate of many household names has been realized.

Sixty-six golfers survived at even-par 140 to play the weekend at Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass. The finale of the Tour Finals will graduate 25 golfers to the PGA TOUR in 2014-15. Ignoring those on known medical extensions and with conditional status next season, the list of notable MCs without fully exempt status next season is as follows (* = Past Champion status): 141--*Chad Campbell; Kevin Tway; Gary Christian ... 142--*Ryuji Imada ... 144--*Kyle Stanley; Patrick Rodgers ... 145--Casey Wittenberg ... 146--*Y.E. Yang ... 148--*Tim Herron ... 152--Roland Thatcher ... 153--James Driscoll ... WD--D.H. Lee; *Tim Petrovic; John Mallinger; *Richard S. Johnson.

Kyle Stanley racked up 12 points in the final round of the Barracuda Championship with his 5-under-par 36-31=67 to join Tim Wilkinson in the clubhouse lead with 34 points.

The Clemson product did most of his heavy lifting late in the round, ending his day with an eagle from 6'5" on the par-5 18th. The irons were on, as each of his four birdies fell from inside 10 feet. Beginning the week 160th in the FedExCup standings, he had this week at Montrêux G&CC and the Wyndham Championship in two weeks to earn enough points to make the FEC Playoffs.

Kyle Stanley positioned himself with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 to reach the 54-hole checkpoint in sole possession of third place at 10-under 200.

The putter remained uncharacteristically hot for Stanley in his third navigation of Royal Montreal, rolling in seven putts from outside of five feet on the day. The lengthiest pair of birdie putts came from 20'2" and 24'9" on the par-4 11th and par-4 15th, respectively. His birdie-bogey ratio of 14-to-4 this week has him just five shots off the lead entering Sunday.

Kyle Stanley chased his opening 65 at the RBC Canadian Open with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round.

Stanley started the week ranked last of 192 eligible in strokes gained-putting. Yet, his 4.676 measurement in the opening round at Royal Montreal led the field. Today, at last check, he gave back over one stroke to the field on the greens, but he didn't surrender one on his card. Stanley went 3-for-3 in scrambling and buried three birdies. His longest conversion was a par save from 13 feet at the par-3 fifth hole. At 8-under 132, he's strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Kyle Stanley carded a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open to assume outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

He owns the potential to author days like this more regularly, but nothing about 2013-14 has been normal for the one-time PGA TOUR winner. Today at Royal Montreal, he missed only one of 14 fairways, but hit just 10 greens in regulation. Yet, Stanley limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-3 third hole while picking off six birdies elsewhere. The set included conversions from 20'4" and 23'2" at Nos. 15 and 17, respectively. His most impressive par saves measured 10'11" at 1 and 11'7" at 4. He didn't miss inside 14 feet and walked off with a strokes gained-putting clip north of 4.540. This is Stanley's lowest aggregate since a third-round 65 in New Orleans 15 months ago.
