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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
