Overnight tri-leader and World No. 172 Stewart Cink labored to a 3-over-par 35-38=73 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, falling nine spots into a eight-way T10 on 6-under 274, four adrift of champion Daniel Berger, who shot 66.
This was the 44-year-old's 12th 54-hole lead/co-lead in 533 career events, first since the 2013 Houston Open, and drops to 2-for-12 in converting. He was also an 18-hole co-leader, dropping to 1-for-11 in that regard. The Georgia Tech alum was making his ninth appearance in Memphis, posts a third top 25 and second top 10 (T5/2004). After opening in 64-68-69, he began T1 with Ben Crane and playing competitor Rafa Cabrera Bello, three clear of Berger. Playing out of the final twosome, the Alabama native circled birdies at 7 and 16, overshadowed by bogeys at 5, 10 and 15, and double-bogey-5 at 11. He lost 4.054 strokes approaching-the-green and 5.035 tee-to-green on six (of 14) fairways and just seven greens in regulation. This is Cink's ninth top 25 of the season (third straight) and third top 10, all T10s. Jun 11 - 7:13 PM

First-round co-leader Stewart Cink carved out a 1-under-par 32-37=69 on Day 3 of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 9-under 201, up three spots on the round and sharing the 54-hole lead with Rafa Cabrera Bello and Ben Crane.

After opening in 64-68, the 44-year-old began in solo 4th, one back of a trio of overnight co-leaders. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he went out in 3-under, outpacing bogey-5 at six with birdies at Nos. 1, 3, 5 and 7. The Georgia Tech alum came home in 2-over, silencing a final birdie at 13 with bogeys at 11, 14 and 15. He conjured five (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, losing 1.859 strokes off-the-tee. The Alabama native posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.943 SG: Putting, dropping three conventional birdies from between seven and 40 feet, adding two hole-outs at 3 and 7 from 24'10" and 23'11" away, respectively. He missed three scoring tries from inside of 11 feet but did save par from 9'5" at the ninth. This is Cink's 12th career 54-hole lead/co-lead in 533 career events, first since the 2013 Houston Open (finished T6). Overall, he's 2-for-11 converting, most recently at the 2008 Travelers.

Overnight co-leader Stewart Cink kept a steady pace in round two of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, signing for a bogey-free, 2-under-par 35-33=68 to reach the midpoint on 8-under 132, one off the early lead set by Chez Reavie.

Cink was clicking on all cylinders in round one, but lost a bit of that mojo today. He hit three fewer greens in regulation today, and the GIR quality was also lower. He set up nine birdie looks from inside 13 feet yesterday, but found just five from that range today, converting on just one. As a bonus, he did manage to drop home a 20'10" birdie splash at the par-4 15th. This goes in the books as the lowest 36-hole total for Cink since the 2016 CIMB Classic, with just six career 36-hole scores lower than 132 on his resume. Cink remains in search of his seventh PGA TOUR title, not finding the winner's circle since the 2009 Open Championship.

Stewart Cink added his name to the list of early leaders in round one of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, coasting to a 6-under-par 31-33=64 to join Matt Every and Scott Brown at the top of the leaderboard.

Cink arrived fresh off a successful U.S. Open sectional qualifying event on Monday (Columbus). No one would have batted an eye if he would have withdrawn after the taxing 36-hole session. Instead, he's keeping the good vibes rolling, trading nine birdies with three bogeys today. If was stellar approach that set things up (nine birdie looks from inside 13 feet) and great putting that sealed the deal (3.289 strokes gained putting). Entering the week, Cink had rattled off top 30s in eight of his last 10 starts, and there is no sign of him slowing down. Playing his 31st competitive round at TPC Southwind, this beats his previous best by two strokes.

The Georgia Tech alum was birdie-less 2-over thru 16 holes, squaring bogey-5s at 5 (missed par-saver from 36 inches) and 15, before finally breaking the ice with birdie-3 at 17 from 37 inches. He gave it right back with a walk-off bogey-5 at 18. The Alabama native posted 1.917 putts per GIR and -2.484 SG: Putting. This was his 11th top 25 at the DDI in 17 tries and third top 10.

He's making his 17th appearance at Colonial CC and is now 15-for-17 after opening with 68-70.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 206 Stewart Cink pieced together a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in today's second round of the Shell Houston Open for a two-day total of 7-under 137, down three spots on the live leaderboard to T6, a distant nine in arrears to clubhouse leader Sung Kang.

This is the 43-year-old's seventh appearance with one top 10 (T6/2013). After an opening 66, he's improved to 6-for-7 in the tournament with his only missed cut in 2012. The Huntsville, Alabama, native got off to a low start with four pars and bogey-6 at 13, but reeled off a 3-birdie train on Nos. 15-17, the latter from 13'5". He circled birdie-3 at 1 but gave two back with double at the par-4 second (tee ball OB), and then two more with back-to-back squares at 6 and 7, both 3-putts from between 26 and 29 feet originally, missing a pair of 2-foot come-backers. Those riled up the Georgia Tech alum, finishing birdie-birdie, including a walk-off 2 from 24'3".

Stewart Cink cruised to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the Shell Houston Open, throwing his name inside the top 5 on day one.

Cink arrived with plenty of form, starting the season with a 10-for-12 record. He was coasting for most of his round today, pelting each of the first 16 greens in regulation. From there he had to grind out the final two pars, finding tree trouble in his back swing at the 17th and then short-siding himself on the closing 18th, needing a 7'8" putt to keep his clean card intact. The hole must have looked two feet wide for Cink today, as he sank five putts from outside 10 feet before nailing that clutch par-saver at the last. The 43-year-old walked off the course gaining 3.45 strokes putting. Today's round matches his personal best at the Golf Club of Houston (R2, 2013) and putts him in great position heading into Friday.
Mar 30 - 6:41 PM

Stewart Cink outlasted Mother Nature to record a 2-under-par 34-36=70 during the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Going off in the early wave on day one, Cink had to battle with unseasonable chilly conditions. The 43-year-old found just 10 greens on the day, but didn't let that rattle him on the scorecard. Cink had a few highlights in the short-game department, with the first one being a 38'5" hole out for birdie at the par-4 13th. After the turn, he splashed home a 28'2" birdie putt at the par-4 first. Cink has finished outside the top 60 in each of his last five trips to Bay Hill, but he arrived with top 30s in four of his last five starts. Form is winning out for Cink after day one.

World No. 260 Stewart Cink tacked on a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Farmers Insurance Open for a three-day total of 7-under 209, up six spots to T5 with play still in progress.

The 43-year-old chased an opening 68 (North Course) with a gritty, even-par 72 (South Course). In yesterday's action, he went out in birdie-less 4-over 40, but came home in blemish-free 32 to level the card. The Georgia Tech alum mustered just six (of 14) fairways but found 14 greens in regulation, registering 1.643 putts per GIR and 1.104 SG: Putting. He squared three bogeys (at Nos. 1, 5 and 16), but outpaced them with six birdies, including four birdie-4s.
Jan 28 - 5:14 PM

Stewart Cink concocted a 4-under-par 35-33=68 during the opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open, positioning himself inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

The 43-year-old is making his 15th appearance at this event, a T3 at the 2008 edition being the highlight. Today, he used his stellar ball-striking as the weapon of choice. Cink landed 16 greens in regulation to keep things relatively stress-free at Torrey Pines North. It took him eight holes to ease into the round but then he rattled off a three-hole birdie train at holes 9 through 11. Cink is playing great golf right now, opening the season with three top 15s in six starts.

Stewart Cink pieced together a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of The RSM Classic to post 13-under 269, down one place into a three-way T10, his first top 10 on TOUR since T5 at the 2015 RBC Canadian Open 69 weeks (26 starts) ago.

The 43-year-old, playing this season on a Top 25 Career-Money-List exemption, also records his first top 10 at the RSM in his sixth appearance, brushing aside a previous-best T32 in 2015. He began the final round in a three-way T9 and outpaced four bogeys with five birdies, but did end on a disappointing note, bogeying the 16th and the 17th. The Duluth, Georgia, resident kicked off with a career-low 62 (in his 1,754th career lap) and chased with 71-67-69 for his third straight top-15 finish.

Stewart Cink carved out a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to post 12-under 200, up 10 places to T7 with play still in progress.

The 43-year-old, playing this season on a Top 25 Career-Money-List exemption, opened his sixth consecutive appearance with a career-low 62 and tacked on a two-birdie one-bogey 71 (Plantation Course) in R2. On a windy Moving Day at the Seaside Course, he was bogey-free 3-under thru 16 holes, circling birdies on Nos. 7, 10 and 15, and then exchanged a 3-putt bogey-4 at the 17th (from 61'1") with a walk-off birdie at the par-4 18th from 6'7". Cink, who trains at the Sea Island Golf Performance Center, hit ALL 18 greens in regulation and is the current leader in that stat at 96.30 percent (52/54).

Stewart Cink blitzed the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club, firing an 8-under-par 31-31=62 to kick off his week at The RSM Classic, positioning himself one off the early clubhouse leader Mackenzie Hughes.

Cink arrived with back-to-back T15 finishes, but this goes above and beyond expectations. In 1,753 previous round on TOUR, he's styled five rounds of 63, but this is his first time clipping the 62-mark. The 43-year-old kept it simple by striping 12 (of 14) fairways and landing 17 greens in regulation. From there, he rolled in three putts from outside 12 feet. Most notably was a monster birdie from 35'7" at the par-3 12th hole. Cink has never finished better than T32 at the RSM in five previous tries, but he's arrived in fantastic form and there is no slowing him down so far.
