Two-time RBC Heritage champ Stewart Cink returns to Harbour Town Golf Links for another crack at the difficult Pete Dye design.
Cink won this event in his 200 debut with a score of 14-under 270. He returned to post finishes of T10-MC-T10 before picking up his second Heritage victory in 2004. Cink has found just one top 10 at the event since then, but he's also 10-for-13 over that time. Gamers looking for a steady cut-making option this week, should give the 44-year-old a long look. He enters the week ranked 108th in the FedExCup race, posting an 8-for-11 record to open the season. Apr 10 - 10:06 AM

Stewart Cink looks to snap out of a recent mini-funk as he preps for this week's Valspar Championship.

Cink's last three starts have yielded finishes of T46-MC-MC with the T46 in his last start showing promise after back-to-back missed cuts. Heading back to Innisbrook Resort for the 15th time, Cink is 10-for-14 at this event with six finishes landing inside the top 20. The Georgia resident ranks 28th in GIR percentage this season but his short game has been holding him back from truly contending. Gamers should consider Cink in deeper fantasy formats this week, given his high cut-made ration over the last few years.

Stewart Cink kept a clean card en route to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 30-34=64 during round two of the Sony Open in Hawaii, soaring up more than 60 spots on the live leaderboard, entering the weekend on 6-under 134.

The Georgia Tech alum looked rusty in round one, losing 1.375 strokes approaching-the-green on his way toward an even-par 70. He rebounded in a big way and it started early. At the par-4 first hole he drained a 57'2" birdie bomb to set the tone. He backed that up with a 35'2" hole out for birdie at the second. Cink's ball-striking returned to normal levels today as he landed 15 greens, five more than round one. Making his 15th appearance at this event, he has now secured his 10th cut made here. Seven of his last eight visits have resulted in finishes in the 20th to 52nd-place range. If he replicates today's round, he'll easily find himself inside the top 20 by week's end.

World No. 137 Stewart Cink makes final preparation for THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES on Jeju Island, Korea. UPDATE: Cink finished T33 on 3-over 291 (71-70-77-73).

The 44-year-old used his Top 25 Career Money List exemption last season to finish 53rd in the FedExCup standings. That was his best FEC finish since the 2010 season. The Georgia Tech alum had 10 top 25s among 20 cashes in 26 starts, three for top 10s, interestingly all T10s. His most recent was T10 at the FedEx St. Jude back in June where was a 54-hole co-leader but closed in 3-over 73. Dating to the beginning of last season, 40-somethings have won eight times, including Pat Perez twice, so Cink has to be eyeballing that. He's a six-time TOUR winner in 541 career starts but not since the 2009 Open. The Alabama native opened this season with a T13 last week in Malaysia (72-68-67-69), his second top 15 in his last eight starts (12th, Dell Tech).

World No. 148 Stewart Cink fashioned a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the BMW Championship to reach 9-under 133, up nine spots to T5, seven in arrears of 36-hole leader Marc Leishman.

The 44-year-old played his way into the top 70 in the FedExCup standings with solo 12th at the Dell Technologies. He's trying to advance to the TOUR Championship for the first time since 2009, and is projected at 37th in FEC standings. The Georgia Tech alum opened with 67 (five birdies, one bogey) and hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation on Day 2. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 17 (3-putt from 13'8"), offset by four circles at Nos. 1 (from 23'1"), 8, 15 and 16 (19'2"), and a walk-off eagle at the par-5 18th from 20'10". Cink posted 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.182 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.

Stewart Cink sets his eyes on Conway Farms for the first time, prepping for this week's BMW Championship in Lake Forest, Illinois.

Cink has 539 career PGA TOUR starts under his belt, but he's never seen Conway Farms, and hasn't pegged it at the BMW Championship since 2010. This time around he arrives in 57th position on the FedExCup leaderboard. He sits outside the top 110 in both strokes gained off-the-tee and around-the-green but 5th in approaching-the-green and 49th in putting. If this week turns into a second-shot test where the greens aren't too difficult to hold then Cink could match or even exceed the finish from his last time out, a solo 12th-place finish at the Dell Technologies Championship.

His current form reads: T62-CUT-T58-T46-T10, also sandwiching in a MC at the Scottish Open.

This was the 44-year-old's 12th 54-hole lead/co-lead in 533 career events, first since the 2013 Houston Open, and drops to 2-for-12 in converting.

After opening in 64-68-69, he began T1 with Ben Crane and playing competitor Rafa Cabrera Bello, three clear of Berger. Playing out of the final twosome, the Alabama native circled birdies at 7 and 16, overshadowed by bogeys at 5, 10 and 15, and double-bogey-5 at 11.

First-round co-leader Stewart Cink carved out a 1-under-par 32-37=69 on Day 3 of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 9-under 201, up three spots on the round and sharing the 54-hole lead with Rafa Cabrera Bello and Ben Crane.

After opening in 64-68, the 44-year-old began in solo 4th, one back of a trio of overnight co-leaders. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he went out in 3-under, outpacing bogey-5 at six with birdies at Nos. 1, 3, 5 and 7. The Georgia Tech alum came home in 2-over, silencing a final birdie at 13 with bogeys at 11, 14 and 15.

Overnight co-leader Stewart Cink kept a steady pace in round two of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, signing for a bogey-free, 2-under-par 35-33=68 to reach the midpoint on 8-under 132, one off the early lead set by Chez Reavie.

Cink was clicking on all cylinders in round one, but lost a bit of that mojo today. He hit three fewer greens in regulation today, and the GIR quality was also lower. He set up nine birdie looks from inside 13 feet yesterday, but found just five from that range today, converting on just one. As a bonus, he did manage to drop home a 20'10" birdie splash at the par-4 15th. This goes in the books as the lowest 36-hole total for Cink since the 2016 CIMB Classic, with just six career 36-hole scores lower than 132 on his resume. Cink remains in search of his seventh PGA TOUR title, not finding the winner's circle since the 2009 Open Championship.

Stewart Cink added his name to the list of early leaders in round one of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, coasting to a 6-under-par 31-33=64 to join Matt Every and Scott Brown at the top of the leaderboard.

Cink arrived fresh off a successful U.S. Open sectional qualifying event on Monday (Columbus). No one would have batted an eye if he would have withdrawn after the taxing 36-hole session. Instead, he's keeping the good vibes rolling, trading nine birdies with three bogeys today. If was stellar approach that set things up (nine birdie looks from inside 13 feet) and great putting that sealed the deal (3.289 strokes gained putting). Entering the week, Cink had rattled off top 30s in eight of his last 10 starts, and there is no sign of him slowing down. Playing his 31st competitive round at TPC Southwind, this beats his previous best by two strokes.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 206 Stewart Cink pieced together a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in today's second round of the Shell Houston Open for a two-day total of 7-under 137, down three spots on the live leaderboard to T6, a distant nine in arrears to clubhouse leader Sung Kang.

This is the 43-year-old's seventh appearance with one top 10 (T6/2013). After an opening 66, he's improved to 6-for-7 in the tournament with his only missed cut in 2012. The Huntsville, Alabama, native got off to a low start with four pars and bogey-6 at 13, but reeled off a 3-birdie train on Nos. 15-17, the latter from 13'5".

Those riled up the Georgia Tech alum, finishing birdie-birdie, including a walk-off 2 from 24'3".
