Overnight quad-leader Jerry Kelly stalled out on the Nicklaus Tournament Course with a 2-under-par 35-35=70, down 14 spots on the day to a four-way T15 on 10-under 134, five adrift of 36-hole leader Jason Dufner.
Kelly's 8-under 64 on day one on the La Quinta CC track was his lowest opening-round score since 63 at the 2007 RBC Heritage. He's also not lead/co-lead after 18 holes since 2007 as well, and just two times overall prior to today in 588 career TOUR starts. The 49-year-old, who turns 50 in November (23rd), began day two off No. 10 tee and outpaced bogey-6 at 15 with birdies at 12 and 14 to reach the break at 1-under. He opened his inward nine with eight straight pars but ended on a high note with birdie at the par-4 ninth. After five birdies and two eagle-3s on 14 greens in regulation in round one, the Wisconsinite landed only 10 greens in R2. He now heads to the TPC Stadium Course, which has statistically played the hardest of the three courses thus far. Jan 22 - 7:38 PM

Jerry Kelly torched La Quinta Country Club with an 8-under-par 31-33=64 to kickoff his week at the CareerBuilder Challenge.

The Wisconsin native entered the week with two eagles through 18 rounds this season. He matched that total at La Quinta CC today, as he eagled two of the four par 5s, playing them at 5-under overall. Kelly had an even lower number in site as he reached 8-under through 12 holes. He dropped a shot on the par-4 14th before offsetting it with another birdie at the par-3 15th. Kelly failed to circle anymore coming in, but will gladly settle for an opening-round 8-under, and a share of the 18-hole lead.

Jerry Kelly tacked on a 3-under-par 34-33=67 on day four of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 13-under 267, up four places on the live leaderboard to T9.

Kelly went for solo third and T6 in the last two editions in Honolulu, and began his 17th consecutive playing on 10-under (T13) after opening in 65-66-69. The 2002 champ circled five in the finale, including three straight on Nos. 9-11, to outpace bogeys at 7 and 14. For the week, he circled only 14 birdies, T63 in the field at last check, but squared just three bogeys, T2 in that category at the time he signed his card. With play winding down, the 49-year-old is well-positioned for his ninth top 10 in 19 appearances on Oahu and third in-a-row. Kelly is in the published field at next week's CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, California.

Jerry Kelly continued his domination of Waialae Country Club with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 during round one of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

The Wisconsin native landed just eight (of 14) fairways on the day, a testament to how difficult these fairways really are. He never got himself into too much trouble off the tee as he was able to land 13 greens in regulation. He was flawless in the scrambling department, despite losing 1.159 strokes with the flat stick at the time of his card signing. This is status quo for Kelly who arrived with 11 top 25s in 18 Sony Open appearances.
Jan 14 - 7:07 PM

Jerry Kelly makes the annual pilgrimage to Waialae Country Club for his 19th appearance at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The PGA TOUR veteran knows the ins and outs of this week's venue, evidenced by the 11 top 25s in 18 Sony Open starts. The highlight includes a 2002 victory, but he sports two third-place finishes, as well. A large sample size of success like this makes it easy for gamers to lock him into lineups this week.
Jan 11 - 10:42 PM

Jerry Kelly will ring in the new year ranked 104th on the FedExCup leaderboard.

The PGA TOUR veteran pegged it three times this fall, earning paychecks in all three. That's nothing new, as he owns a cuts-made ratio over 65 percent in his career. The three time winner hasn't found pay dirt since 2009 but DFS gamers don't mind as it keeps his salary affordable on a week-to-week basis.

Jerry Kelly makes his way back to the CIMB Classic for a second look at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.

The PGA TOUR veteran made an appearance here in 2013 and finished T19. The week was looking even more promising considering it included a 5-over 77 on Sunday to fall out of contention. On paper this is a great venue for the fairways and greens mentality that Kelly brings. At less than 7,000 yards this course really forces players to position their ball off the tee. Kelly makes for a great play across all fantasy formats this week.

Jerry Kelly readies for a home game at this week's BMW Championship.

The Madison, Wisconsin, native is just a two-hour drive from home this week at Conway Farms Golf Club. The last time around (2013) Kelly missed out on playing this course after finishing the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 85th in the FedExCup standings. He arrives in 65th place this year. With local knowledge on his side, Kelly makes for an appealing sleeper in many fantasy formats this week.

Jerry Kelly tossed up a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to conclude his seventh appearance in the Playoffs era at 7-under 277, good for a three-way tie for ninth and bumping him from 94th in the FedExCup standings to 65th.

After all was said and done, only four players ranked between No. 71-100 in the FedExCup standings entering the week secured a finish that moved them into the top 70 and advance to the BMW Championship on Sept. 17-20. Joining Kelly were: Hunter Mahan (No. 91 to No. 52), William McGirt (No. 88 to 68) and Keegan Bradley (No. 71 to No. 63). Kelly began the finale at 8-under (T6) and five adrift. He circled birdies at Nos. 2 and 4 to offset a bogey at the par-4 sixth to turn 1-under. The 38-year-old squared back-to-back bogeys at 13 and 14, the latter a three-putt from 37'4" and then dropped another at the 17th after missing the green, one of seven on the day. Needing birdie at the last to advance, the Wisconsinite delivered with a two-putt birdie after finding the par 5 in two. The T9 is his fourth top 10 of the season on 24 starts and second at TPC Boston (T10/2011).

Jerry Kelly bobbed and weaved to a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in today's third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 8-under 205, up eight places on the live leaderboard and bumping inside the top 10.

After opening in 71-66, Kelly began the day at 5-under (T14) and seven off the pace of 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman. On his round, he split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, converting on five scoring chances the conventional way and pitching-in for birdie at the par-4 fifth. The 48-year-old squared three bogeys, two the result of missed greens and one a three-putt from 47'8" at the par-4 14th. At last check, Kelly sits T2 in driving accuracy thru three rounds (35/42) and T2 in total birdies with 16. He entered the week 94th in the FedExCup standings and currently projects 60th after today's effort.

Jerry Kelly arrives at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 94th in the FedExCup standings.

The PGA TOUR veteran is looking to return to the BMW Championship for the second straight season. The only obstacle in his way in his the fact that just 70 golfers advance to Conway Farms in two weeks. With a pair of top 15s in his last four trips to TPC Boston, there is still some hope for Kelly supporters.

Jerry Kelly returns to action at this week's Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina, and enters the tournament ranked 90th in the FedExCup standings.

In his last start four weeks ago, Kelly missed the cut at the RBC Canadian Open by a seemingly uncharacteristic eight strokes. However, it was his third missed cut in his last four starts, sandwiching in a 17th at the John Deere Classic. It's been an odd season for the 48-year-old, missing eight cuts on 20 starts, but in his 12 cashes, he's logged nine top 25s. His season best is fifth at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November. More recently, he posted a T10 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational in the third week of May, one of three top 10s on the season. Kelly has cashed 14 times on 16 starts at the Wyndham, eight going for top 25s, five of those top 10s. The lastest was T4 in 2011. In his last two trips, he's finished T50 (2012) and T45 (2013).

Jerry Kelly makes one of his favorite TOUR stops this week as he readies for the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois.

The Midwesterner from Madison, Wisconsin, always feels right at home when teeing it up at nearby TPC Deere Run. If location wasn't enough, it helps this track is one of the easiest on TOUR, something Kelly has always excelled on. The track record is undeniable, as he's 8-for-9 in his career at this event, including an entire handful of top 20s.

Jerry Kelly fashioned a 5-under-par 35-29=64 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to post 7-under 132 at the break, two shots off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Kelly bogeyed two of his first four holes at TPC Four Seasons today and sat 1-over thanks to a birdie at the par-3 second. He then found a groove and played the remainder in bogey-free 6-under with six birdies. That featured five birdies coming in, including a 2 at the modified par-3 14th hole. The 48-year-old connected top 25s in his four starts upon arrival, including a T10 at Colonial last week, so he's been money in all formats of late.

Jerry Kelly conjured up a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in today's final round at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and his 9-under 271 was good for a T10-finish.

Kelly began the day 6-under (T10) and five shots back and ended the day T10, finishing three shots off the pace. For his efforts, Kelly split 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, accumulating 29 putts on his round. The 48-year-old squared two bogeys but covered them with five birdies, including back-to-back at 17 and 18 to finish in style. His circle on the 18th put a stamp on the proceedings after he stiffed his approach from 149 yards to 13 inches. The closing birdie was important for several reasons, including securing his third top 10 on the season and depositing 62 FedExCup points.
