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.

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.
Mar 30 - 7:26 PM

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.
