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. Nov 20 - 5:23 PM

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.

Playing this season on a Top 25 career-money-list exemption, Stewart Cink styled a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach the three-quarter mark on 10-under 203, up 17 places on the live leaderboard to T22.

In his first appearance here last year, the Duluth, Georgia, resident missed the cut (by five) with rounds of 76-69. He ended last season a career-worst 147th in the FedExCup standings with no top 10s in 19 starts, missing the Playoffs for the first time since 2012. The 43-year-old posted his best finish in his last start of 2015-16, a T14 at the Wyndham on rounds of 70-66-68-64. He opened this season with a missed cut at the Safeway but posted a T15 last week at the Shriners on progressively better rounds of 70-68-67-66. This week, Cink opened in 3-over 74 but has chased with a nine-birdie 64 and an eight-birdie two-bogey effort today. He's currently No. 1 in total birdies with 21.

Stewart Cink matched a season low with a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-31=64 to wrap his seventh Wyndham Championship on 12-under 268, up 26 places to T15 with play still in progress.

The 43-year-old has played the Wyndham sporadically since debuting with a MC in 1997. He posted a T40 in 1999 that included his previous tournament mark of 68, but had since missed four straight cuts, so his second cash is now his best. The Georgia Tech alum landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, circling six birdies, highlighted by a walk-off 3 from 44'9" at the 18th. His 64 matches a season low shot at the CIMB Classic/R2, where he went on to a T17, his best finish in 18 prior starts. Cink's projected at 147th in the FedExCup standings and will miss the Playoffs for only a second time (2012). He went on a personal leave on 5/13/16 to assist his wife who is battling cancer.

Stewart Cink painted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 1-over 141, up 78 places on the live leaderboard to T61.

This is the 43-year-old's eighth visit to Memphis and third consecutive after a not playing the tourney for eight years. He opened with a birdie-less 75 but rebounded with a five-birdie one-bogey effort on Day 2, his 66 equaling a personal best at TPC Southwind (R2/2014). Cink went off No. 10 tee and found half (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation, posting 2.589 SG: Tee-to-Green and 2.534 SG: Putting. Three of his five par breakers traveled greater than 11 feet with a long of 21'10" at the par-4 17th, but the walk-off 3 from 39 inches on the ninth got him two more rounds.

Stewart Cink has backed out of this week's Memorial in Dublin, Ohio, he will be replaced in the field by Rod Pampling.

Last Thursday Cink tweeted "Future schedule uncertain, likely to be sporadic. Mainly plan to be there for @lisacink. Will throw in some events when she's feeling well." You have to assume this kind of in-then-out commitment may become the norm for Cink as he goes through this tough time with his wife. Replacing him in the field is Rod Pampling, who is 8-for-11 at the Memorial, making his first appearance here since a T46 in 2012.

Due to family issues Stewart Cink has announced a leave of absence from competitive golf for the foreseeable future. UPDATE: Cink returned to action May 26th at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational and at 7-over 72-75=147, missed the cut by six shots.

Cink announced on Twitter that his wife, Lisa, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. He then added "In order to assist Lisa in meeting this challenge, I will be stepping away from competitive golf until circumstances improve for her. Hopefully that day will come quickly." It's horrible news but an easy decision to walk away from the game right now. This goes beyond any fantasy advice, and all we can do now is hope for the best for Cink and his family during this trying time.

Stewart Cink orchestrated a final-round 5-under-par 34-33=67 to wrap his sixth Shell Houston Open on 4-under 284, up 31 spots on the live leaderboard to T36. UPDATE: Rafa Cabrera-Bello carded the low round of the day with 7-under 65.

Cink made the 54-hole cut on the number (69-73-75) and began his final frame in a five-way tie for last (T67). He circled seven birdies against two bogeys, highlighted by a 33'7" roll on the par-3 16th and a chip-in birdie-3 on the 17th. The 42-year-old capped with a 14'10" one-putt par on the 18th to post the low round in the clubhouse.

Stewart Cink takes his talents to Humble, Texas, for this week's Shell Houston Open held at the Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course.

Cink enters with a 3-for-4 record at the current SHO venue, including a T6 in 2013. On the current season he's 7-for-12 despite ranking 198th in strokes gained:putting. He's finished 81st or worst in each of the past three seasons, but his putter is especially cold at the moment. All it takes is one good week with the flat stick for Cink to turn it around, making him a great buy-low candidate.

Stewart Cink cruised to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 at Spyglass Hill Golf Club, and currently sits at 6-under 138 through two rounds.

Cink's opening round was nothing to write home about as he offset two bogeys with four birdies to post 2-under at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Turning his attention to a difficult Spyglass Hill today, Cink got hot with the flat stick to sign for a blemish-free scorecard. Comparing his fairways hit and GIRs in round one vs round two, he split two fewer fairways today and landed just one more green in regulation. The difference was all in the putter for Cink who is making his first appearance at this event since 2000. Next, he'll head to Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course for his third round tee time.

Stewart Cink readies for his 15th playing of the CareerBuilder Challenge where he's 9-for-14 with three top 10s and a best of T6 in 1998.

Technically, this week marks Cink's 501st overall PGA TOUR event, but it's his 500th as a pro, making one amateur start in 1995. He's in the midst of his 20th consecutive campaign on TOUR since joining in 1997, and has never made less than 22 starts in a season. Hence, the 42-year-old is a model of consistency (and longevity), but he hasn't won or had a podium finish since 2009. The six-time TOUR winner's last title came at the 2009 Open Championship (Turnberry) in a four-hole playoff over 54-hole leader (and 59-year-old) Tom Watson.

Stewart Cink will be making his 500th career PGA TOUR start when he pegs it up again following the holiday break.

Cink is a remarkable 388-for-499 in his career and more recently 15-for-23 in 2014-15. His ability to make it through the cut is still there, but his upside is limited at this point in his career. Cink posted just three top 25s last season, his lowest tally since 1995, his first season as a professional.

Stewart Cink sunk seven birdies en route to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 at Sea Island Resort's Plantation Course in today's opening round of The RSM Classic.

Despite co-leading the field in birdies, he checked up one strokes in arrears of the clubhouse tri-leaders. Cink landed only 12 greens in regulation, too, so he squeezed quite a bit of goodness from his singular opportunity on the new co-host course. He draws Seaside for the remainder. In 12 career competitive rounds over there, he's shot as low as 63 and as high as 75. While that's just golf for ya, it's pretty much a microcosm of his last few season on the PGA TOUR.

Stewart Cink settled for a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in today's third round of the CIMB Classic.

He looked so good en route to the bogey-free 64 on Friday, and he was flawless today through 11 holes with an eagle-3 (at No. 5), one birdie and nine pars, but the wheels flew off at the par-4 12th where he squared a 6. He compounded matters with a bogey-4 at the 14th hole, but rallied for two birdies the rest of the way, including a walk-off 4 at the last. At 14-under 202, Cink is just inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and five swings adrift of the 54-hole clubhouse lead, but he'll rue the substandard effort after manufacturing 13 scoring opportunities.
