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.
Feb 12 - 7:37 PM

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.
Jan 20 - 3:16 PM

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.

Stewart Cink laced Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 33-31=64 in the second round of the CIMB Classic.

The 42-year-old still has it. He picked off eight birdies, including four in a row beginning at the par-4 14th hole before signing for his lowest aggregate since a third-round 63 at Seaside just over 12 months ago. Cink scrambled all four times today to keep his card clean. He's 12-under 132 at the break, just two swings back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He has only one top 10 in his last 54 PGA TOUR starts, so he'll embrace the challenge if the butterflies begin to stir on the weekend.

Stewart Cink opens his 20th PGA TOUR season with his second consecutive appearance at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Cink has played the Las Vegas stop sporadically since 1996 making 10 prior appearances, including eight consecutive between 1996-2003. He didn't play the tournament between 2004 and 2011, returning to T36 in 2012 and a disappointing T33 in last year's edition where he co-lead after a first-round 64 (75-66-70). The 42-year-old mustered one top 10 last season (T5, RBC Canadian Open) on 23 events and bowed out at No. 102 in the FedExCup standings after a T39 at The Barclays. He's since made two starts on the European Tour and made both cuts, including a T9 three weeks ago at the Alfred Dunhill Links.

Stewart Cink carded a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in today's opening round of The Barclays, coming to rest two shots off the clubhouse lead.

Cink was straight scuffling until wrangling a T5 at the RBC Canadian Open. That essentially solidified a spot at Plainfield today where he opens the Playoffs ranked 116th in points. He hit 12 greens and traded five birdies with two bogeys. His par breakers included rolls from 29'3", 25 feet and 15'10" at Nos. 1, 6 and 12 respectively.

Stewart Cink makes his eighth appearance at The Barclays as part of the FedExCup Playoffs and enters the tournament 116th in the FEC standings.

Cink is 6-for-7 at The Barclays with his only missed cut coming in the 2012 edition at Bethpage State Park. Of his six cashes, three have gone for top 25s, including a T15 at Ridgewood CC in 2014. He has not advanced to the season-ending TOUR Championship since 2009 and hasn't made it past the second round (Deutsche Bank) since 2010. The 42-year-old ranks third on TOUR in greens in regulation but 100th in the all-around and 86th in scoring average. His season best is a T5 at the RBC Canadian Open, his only top-10 finish on 22 starts and his first top 10 on TOUR since 2013 (5th, AT&T National). The RBC finish was timely however, as it bumped him from 125th in FEC points to 103rd and secured his card for 2015-16. He was in the last season of his five-year exemption for winning the 2009 Open Championship.
