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. Mar 31 - 10:30 PM

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.

Kyle Stanley chased his opening 82 at The Open Championship with a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round, but he will miss the cut.

It's there's such a thing as a moral victory in golf, that's what Muirfield handed Stanley today. He split only three (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation in his lid-lifter but still required 33 putts. Today he found 11 fairways and 15 greens and wielded his putter on the greens just 32 times en route to four birdies against two bogeys. He reached the halfway point in 9-over 151, but the 36-hole cut won't fall that far.

Kyle Stanley nearly picked up his first PGA TOUR victory at the John Deere Classic in 2011, finishing second to Steve Stricker, and is back this week to take a shot at redemption.

Stanley posted ahead of Stricker that afternoon, then watched as Stricker needed to birdie the par-4 18th to beat him. After finding the fairway bunker with his tee shot, Stricker hit his approach just over the green to a back pin. With everyone expecting him to force a playoff with a par, Stricker holed the birdie to hand Stanley the hard-luck loss.

Kyle Stanley has earned an exemption into this week's U.S. Open by virtue of sitting inside the top 60 of the latest Official World Golf Ranking.

Stanley elected to take the week off to minimize his losses. It paid off as he tumbled just one spot to 60th in the OWGR to clinch his fourth appearance in the season's second major. He's the only golfer to gain entry via this last qualifying criterion. The field now stands at 151. The final five tee times will be distributed to the first five on the unpublished list of overall alternates.

Kyle Stanley suffered his share of bad breaks in the final round of the Memorial, but a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in the final round was good enough for solo third at 7-under 281.

Stanley pulled within one of eventual winner Matt Kuchar when he holed his fourth birdie in five holes at the par-4 ninth, but several impossible lies and slight miscues on the back nine at Muirfield Village rendered Stanley unable to take down Kuchar. This matches Stanley's third at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans as his best result since his win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2012. Perhaps most noteworthy is the return of his putter. He averaged gaining .818 strokes on the field for the week. Consider him a threat for more big finishes in the near future if he keeps this up.
