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.
Jun 10 - 11:22 AM

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.

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.
May 1 - 1:20 PM

Stewart Cink lit up Augusta National Golf Club for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Masters, ending the week at 1-over 289.

While Cink is the clubhouse leader, there is virtually no chance that he will end the day with a green jacket. Of greater concern for him is his 2015 Masters status. This is his last exemption afforded via his 2009 win at Turnberry in the Open Championship. All of those finishing in a tie for 12th or better in this week's Masters punch a ticket into next year's edition. He was tied for 15th at the time of is posting, so expect Cink to watch the leaderboard closely over the remainder of the afternoon.
Apr 13 - 3:32 PM

Stewart Cink carded a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing one stroke off the pace of the early clubhouse co-leaders.

Cink tied for sixth here last year, so he's knows how to score at the Golf Club of Houston. He missed only one green in regulation, that after rinsing his tee ball at the par-4 first en route to a bogey, but he was flawless elsewhere, dropping in six birdies, including conversions from 11'2" and 25'2" at Nos. 10 and 17, respectively.
Apr 3 - 2:31 PM

Stewart Cink will compete at this week's Shell Houston Open.

He enters the week 121st in the FedExCup standings, falling 56 spots since the Farmers Insurance Open at the end of January. Cink found himself sharing a 54-hole lead with Bill Haas at last year's SHO before finishing T6.
Apr 2 - 11:25 AM

Stewart Cink is back for his 11th crack at the Valspar Championship.

He picked up a T3 in 2005 and a T2 here in 2008, so the Copperhead Course clearly holds some appeal to the 2009 Open Champion. Perhaps worth noting, he ranks 16th in GIR and ninth in GIR from other than the fairways on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14. Given the tight fairways and importance of finding GIR this week, those are valuable stats.
Mar 11 - 9:25 PM

Overnight leader Stewart Cink chased his opening 64 at the Farmers Insurance Open with a 1-under-par 35-36=71 on the North Course at Torrey Pines to post 9-under 135 and sit one stroke off Jordan Spieth's 36-hole lead.

He put himself in position to score today thanks to 17 greens in regulation (and lead the field with 32), but got only three attempts to fall for birdies, the longest measuring only 10'11" at the par-3 16th hole. Cink bogeyed the hole he failed to hit in regulation (the par-4 fifth) and three-putted the par-3 eighth for another bogey. Overall, he fanned on three tries inside nine feet. He's still after his first victory since his lone major title at the 2009 Open Championship.
Jan 24 - 6:59 PM

Stewart Cink grabbed sole possession of the clubhouse lead at the Farmers Insurance Open with a bogey-free 8-under-par 33-31=64 on the North Course at Torrey Pines.

Cink has five top-15 finishes in 11 appearances at this event, so he's on the inside track to pad that total. He split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to eight birdies. Surprisingly, only one of those par breakers dropped in on a par 5 (the first hole, his first of the round). Five of the seven that followed fell in on par 4s. Apples-to-apples comparisons of scores aren't relevant until everyone in the field logs one round on each course, so the six-time PGA TOUR winner will have his work cut out on Friday at Torrey Pines South.
Jan 23 - 5:45 PM

Stewart Cink enters the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season after earning $1,052,712 during the 2013 campaign.

Cink's 2013 was a vast improvement from the $477,173 he earned in 2012. Subsequently, the new season has seen him earn paychecks in two of three starts, including a T11 at the CIMB Classic. Now 40, he's reached the age where gamers have to take into account the probability that he's on the downswing of his career. While there are examples of golfers who found the fountain of youth -- see Vijay Singh -- Cink doesn't appear to be one of them. He still has value, to be sure, but he is no longer an elite option.

Stewart Cink kept his rally rolling at the CIMB Classic with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round to reach 9-under 207, two back of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit another 13 greens in regulation today and erased one bogey with four birdies. Cink has squared only four bogeys all week and remains poised to make some noise early in the 2013-14 season.

Stewart Cink is 6-under-par 70-68=138 through two rounds of the CIMB Classic, three back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Now 40 years of age, Cink is probably slowing down. His recent season appear to be more toward his new norm than anomalies, but you can't rule him out in any given week. Thus far at Kualu Lumpur Golf & Country Club's West Course, he's hit 14 greens in regulation in each round and poured in nine birdies, six of which in today's trot. Five of his par breakers for the week have occurred on par 5s.

Stewart Cink looks to get his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season off to a good start at the CIMB Classic.

Cink managed a T77 at the Open, where he failed to make the 54-hole cut. He tied for 13th in this event in 2011, but it was not at the current venue of Kualu Lumpur, meaning don’t count on course history. There is little doubt that he will enjoy the ability to play all 72 holes of this no-cut event and cash a sizeable check for his troubles.
