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". He circled birdie-3 at 1 but gave two back with double at the par-4 second (tee ball OB), and then two more with back-to-back squares at 6 and 7, both 3-putts from between 26 and 29 feet originally, missing a pair of 2-foot come-backers. Those riled up the Georgia Tech alum, finishing birdie-birdie, including a walk-off 2 from 24'3".

Stewart Cink cruised to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the Shell Houston Open, throwing his name inside the top 5 on day one.

Cink arrived with plenty of form, starting the season with a 10-for-12 record. He was coasting for most of his round today, pelting each of the first 16 greens in regulation. From there he had to grind out the final two pars, finding tree trouble in his back swing at the 17th and then short-siding himself on the closing 18th, needing a 7'8" putt to keep his clean card intact. The hole must have looked two feet wide for Cink today, as he sank five putts from outside 10 feet before nailing that clutch par-saver at the last. The 43-year-old walked off the course gaining 3.45 strokes putting. Today's round matches his personal best at the Golf Club of Houston (R2, 2013) and putts him in great position heading into Friday.

Stewart Cink outlasted Mother Nature to record a 2-under-par 34-36=70 during the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Going off in the early wave on day one, Cink had to battle with unseasonable chilly conditions. The 43-year-old found just 10 greens on the day, but didn't let that rattle him on the scorecard. Cink had a few highlights in the short-game department, with the first one being a 38'5" hole out for birdie at the par-4 13th. After the turn, he splashed home a 28'2" birdie putt at the par-4 first. Cink has finished outside the top 60 in each of his last five trips to Bay Hill, but he arrived with top 30s in four of his last five starts. Form is winning out for Cink after day one.

World No. 260 Stewart Cink tacked on a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Farmers Insurance Open for a three-day total of 7-under 209, up six spots to T5 with play still in progress.

The 43-year-old chased an opening 68 (North Course) with a gritty, even-par 72 (South Course). In yesterday's action, he went out in birdie-less 4-over 40, but came home in blemish-free 32 to level the card. The Georgia Tech alum mustered just six (of 14) fairways but found 14 greens in regulation, registering 1.643 putts per GIR and 1.104 SG: Putting. He squared three bogeys (at Nos. 1, 5 and 16), but outpaced them with six birdies, including four birdie-4s.
Jan 28 - 5:14 PM

Stewart Cink concocted a 4-under-par 35-33=68 during the opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open, positioning himself inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

The 43-year-old is making his 15th appearance at this event, a T3 at the 2008 edition being the highlight. Today, he used his stellar ball-striking as the weapon of choice. Cink landed 16 greens in regulation to keep things relatively stress-free at Torrey Pines North. It took him eight holes to ease into the round but then he rattled off a three-hole birdie train at holes 9 through 11. Cink is playing great golf right now, opening the season with three top 15s in six starts.

Stewart Cink pieced together a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of The RSM Classic to post 13-under 269, down one place into a three-way T10, his first top 10 on TOUR since T5 at the 2015 RBC Canadian Open 69 weeks (26 starts) ago.

The 43-year-old, playing this season on a Top 25 Career-Money-List exemption, also records his first top 10 at the RSM in his sixth appearance, brushing aside a previous-best T32 in 2015. He began the final round in a three-way T9 and outpaced four bogeys with five birdies, but did end on a disappointing note, bogeying the 16th and the 17th. The Duluth, Georgia, resident kicked off with a career-low 62 (in his 1,754th career lap) and chased with 71-67-69 for his third straight top-15 finish.

Stewart Cink carved out a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to post 12-under 200, up 10 places to T7 with play still in progress.

The 43-year-old, playing this season on a Top 25 Career-Money-List exemption, opened his sixth consecutive appearance with a career-low 62 and tacked on a two-birdie one-bogey 71 (Plantation Course) in R2. On a windy Moving Day at the Seaside Course, he was bogey-free 3-under thru 16 holes, circling birdies on Nos. 7, 10 and 15, and then exchanged a 3-putt bogey-4 at the 17th (from 61'1") with a walk-off birdie at the par-4 18th from 6'7". Cink, who trains at the Sea Island Golf Performance Center, hit ALL 18 greens in regulation and is the current leader in that stat at 96.30 percent (52/54).

Stewart Cink blitzed the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club, firing an 8-under-par 31-31=62 to kick off his week at The RSM Classic, positioning himself one off the early clubhouse leader Mackenzie Hughes.

Cink arrived with back-to-back T15 finishes, but this goes above and beyond expectations. In 1,753 previous round on TOUR, he's styled five rounds of 63, but this is his first time clipping the 62-mark. The 43-year-old kept it simple by striping 12 (of 14) fairways and landing 17 greens in regulation. From there, he rolled in three putts from outside 12 feet. Most notably was a monster birdie from 35'7" at the par-3 12th hole. Cink has never finished better than T32 at the RSM in five previous tries, but he's arrived in fantastic form and there is no slowing him down so far.

Playing this season on a Top 25 career-money-list exemption, Stewart Cink styled a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach the three-quarter mark on 10-under 203, up 17 places on the live leaderboard to T22.

In his first appearance here last year, the Duluth, Georgia, resident missed the cut (by five) with rounds of 76-69. He ended last season a career-worst 147th in the FedExCup standings with no top 10s in 19 starts, missing the Playoffs for the first time since 2012. The 43-year-old posted his best finish in his last start of 2015-16, a T14 at the Wyndham on rounds of 70-66-68-64. He opened this season with a missed cut at the Safeway but posted a T15 last week at the Shriners on progressively better rounds of 70-68-67-66. This week, Cink opened in 3-over 74 but has chased with a nine-birdie 64 and an eight-birdie two-bogey effort today. He's currently No. 1 in total birdies with 21.

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.
