Stewart Cink ranks 93rd in the FedExCup standings after securing paychecks in each of his three starts to begin the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.
His best result was a T32 at The McGladrey Classic. The Georgia Tech product does not have his full status secured beyond this season and has plenty of motivation to perform well. He is third on the PGA TOUR in GIR, finding the dance floor 79.63 percent of the time. Dec 11 - 3:17 PM

Stewart Cink has been removed from the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

That he appeared in the field in the first place was surprising. Cink has never played in this tournament. He's opened the season with three paydays in as many starts, but has yet to crack a top 30. Still, moderation is valuable. He's 78th in the FedExCup standings early on.

Stewart Cink thrashed Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course for eight birdies en route to a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic.

Cink hit 13 greens in regulation today, so he maximized on his scoring opportunities. Four of his birdies ran longer than 12 feet, the highlight dropping in from 29'5" at the par-3 sixth hole. He started on the 10th hole birdied five of his first six and squeezed in a par save from 13'4" at the par-4 11th. Cink walked off with another par conversion at the par-4 ninth, this time from 18-and-a-half feet. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the round measured 4.636. He opened his season with a T33 in Vegas where he shared the 18-hole lead with a 64, so the pieces are in place for him to perhaps emerge with his first victory since the 2009 Open Championship. At 9-under 201, he's the 54-hole clubhouse leader of the McGladrey.

Opening-round co-leader Stewart Cink blew up for a 4-over-par 39-36=75 in his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and posted 3-under 139 at the midpoint, seven strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

So much for the positive direction establish in his bogey-free 64 on Thursday. Today, Cink split only four (of 14) fairways, but he found 13 greens in regulation. That led to four birdies, the longest from 28'1" at the par-4 third hole, but the major champion -- he hasn't won win stealing the Claret Jug at Turnberry in 2009 -- squared two bogeys, one double and a quad. The latter occurred on his second hole of the day. After finding a greenside bunker at the par-4 11th, Cink proceeded to take four whacks from the sand, alternating between two bunkers on either side of the hole.

Stewart Cink fashioned a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to grab outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Cink missed only one green in regulation at TPC Summerlin today and poured in seven birdies, five of which coming home. However, both of his notable birdies disappeared on his front nine, first from 16'7" at the par-3 eighth, and then from 14'9" at the par-5 ninth. This is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 63 at Nicklaus Private at the Humana Challenge in January.

Stewart Cink gets his 2014-15 season underway at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The veteran has played in this event on nine previous occasions, although eight of them came before 2004. His most recent start at TPC Summerlin was a modest T36 in 2012. He made 21 of 25 cuts last season, but did not crack the top 10. That translates into a high probability of a weekend tee time this week, but it would be a surprise if he contended for a win.
Oct 14 - 12:48 PM

Stewart Cink jumped from 109th to 77th in the FedExCup standings with his T15 at The Barclays, and he now makes his way to the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Cink has made four of his seven cuts at TPC Boston, with a T18 in 2010 serving as the highlight. He must figure out a way to crack the top 70 in the FEC standings at the end of the week in order to tee it up in the BMW Championship. Considering that he's made 14 of his last 15 cuts, he stands a legitimate chance at nabbing enough points to do just that.
Aug 26 - 9:35 PM

Stewart Cink tied for 15th in the 2010 Barclays held at Ridgewood Country Club and returns for another shot at this week's edition.

The cuts-made bubble finally burst for Cink in his last start after rattling off 13 straight. Now he sits on another bubble, the Deutsche Bank bubble, as he ranks 109th in the FedExCup standings. On the bright side, six of his eight career rounds at Ridgewood CC have been under-par, resulting in T38 and T15 finishes. Cink remains an interesting option for gamers primarily looking for a golfer to make the weekend, but his lack of a top 10 over his past 28 events shows how limited his upside has become.

Stewart Cink will have a crack at Valhalla Golf Club this week at the 96th PGA Championship.

Cink enters the week ranked 103rd in the FedExCup standings, while riding 13 straight cuts made. He's teed it up in 17th career PGA Championships, earning a weekend tee time in 10 of those. The distance of Valhalla should be no concern for Cink, as he's still got some juice left in the driver, ranking 56th in driving distance. His consistent play of late makes him intriguing option for gamers in deeper formats.
Aug 6 - 10:32 AM

Stewart Cink is 7-under-par 69-66=135 through two rounds of the John Deere Classic, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Five top 25s this season, but it's been over 12 months since his last top 10 (solo fifth, 2013 Quicken Loans). So, while he'll need to keep the pedal floored on the weekend at TPC Deere Run, he's poised for another terrific opportunity to contend. Today he traded seven birdies with two bogeys. His latter bogey ranked as his second-longest conversion of the round. Closing at the par-4 ninth, Cink played the hole along the right side and landed his third on the far side of the green. He'd eventually roll in his bogey from 11'10". His most notable birdie curled in from 18'1" at 12 and two others traveled a little longer than 10 feet (Nos. 16 and 6).

Stewart Cink makes his way back to TPC Deere Run for this week's John Deere Classic.

Cink enters the week on the heels of ten straight cuts made, but is still searching for his first top 10 of the season. He owns one of those top 10s at the John Deere Classic, but it came back in 2004 when he shared a piece of 8th place. Cink has certainly regressed since then, but his consistent cut making ability makes him a safe option while his six PGA TOUR victories keep his upside afloat.
Jul 8 - 10:14 AM

Stewart Cink will make his third Pinehurst No. 2 appearance at the U.S. Open this week.

Cink is 2-for-2 at Pinehurst, sharing a piece of 15th place in 2005 and splitting 32nd place in 1999. He's 14-for-17 on the season, including cuts made in eight straight starts. Good form and good history converge this week, making Cink an appealing option after you get past the first tier of talent.

Stewart Cink conjured a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of THE PLAYERS, improving to 6-under 210 for the week.

Cink's biggest highlight came at the par-4 seventh at TPC Sawgrass, when he holed his 138-yard approach from the fairway for an eagle. Of his three birdies, a 26'1" effort on the par-4 10th was the only one of note. He also suffered three bogeys. Ball-striking was a struggle, landing just half of his GIR and finding only six of 14 fairways. He will try and wrangle his first top 10 of the 2013-14 season in Sunday's finale.
May 10 - 4:59 PM

Stewart Cink chased his opening 68 at the Wells Fargo Championship with a 2-under-par 33-37=70 to post 6-under 138.

Cink went 3-for-13 in birdie chances today, including a 28'8" beaut at the par-4 third. He added a fourth birdie from off the green 10 yards away at the par-5 seventh. Bogeys at 15 and 17, the latter a 11-foot conversion after finding water off the tee, took the shine off an otherwise sparkling round, but at 6-under 138, he's just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 2 - 6:38 PM

Stewart Cink posted a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Cink has shown flashes of his past this season and he's also enjoyed some success at Quail Hollow with four top 15s, including in his last two trips (2011, 2012). Today, he bogeyed both holes where he didn't find the green in regulation, but the first came courtesy of a 16'4" conversion at the par-4 18th. He lassoed six birdies, three of which from outside 14 feet, the gem measuring 49'3" at 17. While he walked off with a strokes gained-putting clip in the vicinity of 2.200, it could have been higher and he could be threatening the lead if not for three whiffs inside six feet on his inward nine, the front side of the course.
