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.

Stewart Cink fired a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to join Tom Hoge as early 72-hole clubhouse leaders at 13-under 275.

Cink began the finale at 7-under (T26) and eight swings back. On his round, he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, converting six for birdie. The 42-year-old's set included a pair of two-putt birdies at the par-5 second and 18th respectively, with a long of 18'4" coming at the par-4 ninth. Cink entered the week 125th in the FedExCup standings, so a high finish was just what the doctor ordered to reduce his stress level. After opening in 68-73, he played the weekend in 10-under (68-66) and currently sits T3 on the live leaderboard, up 23 spots on the day. Cink's last top 10 on TOUR came in June, 2013 (5th, AT&T National). His season-best (19 starts) is a pair of T20s, including at last week's Open Championship. Cink has six prior starts at the Canadian Open with a personal-best T4 in 2004, also at Glen Abbey GC.

Stewart Cink picked off eight birdies en route to a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Cink will turn 42 years of age a week from today, so he celebrated his birthday a bit early by turning back the clock. He's cashed nine times this season but has yet land inside a top 30. Today at Quail Hollow, he hit 14 greens and squared three bogeys, including a three-putt from 54 feet at the par-3 17th hole. Two of his birdies traveled at least 10 feet on the putting surface, but his longest disappeared from the fringe six yards away at the par-4 ninth. Cink signed his card positioned just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Stewart Cink is 5-under-par 70-67=137 after two rounds of the RBC Heritage, three strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Cink is 8-for-11 this season but 141st in the FedExCup standings. He's finished no better than T31 at The Honda Classic. Given his current position at Harbour Town, he's poised for a season-best finish. Thus far, he's flashed terrific form tee-to-green, but particularly with his putter. Five of Cink's seven birdies today found the target from outside 11 feet. That includes a zero-putt eight-yarder at the par-4 eighth hole. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate 4.865.
Apr 17 - 2:25 PM

Stewart Cink arrives at this week's Shell Houston Open ranked first in greens-in-regulation percentage.

Cink bombards greens and still hits it out there with the young guns as he hovers at 55th in driving distance as well. It's no surprise that he's 2-for-3 at this event since it moved to Golf Club of Houston in 2006, including a T6 just two years ago. Cink makes for an appealing option in formats that require a cut made but his upside has slowly declined, posting just three top 10s since the beginning of 2012.
Mar 31 - 6:21 PM

Stewart Cink arrives at The Honda Classic this week ranked 131st in the FedExCup standings.

Cink missed the cut in his 1997 Honda debut, but has gone 6-for-6 since. He currently sits at 69th in the strokes gained:tee-to-green department, which helps explain his ability to consistently compete at PGA National. Cink no longer lacks up the upside he used to, but he's perfect this week for DFS gamers where making the weekend is at a premium.

Stewart Cink readies for his 16th start at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Cink is 8-for-15 at the WMPO but hasn't earned a weekend tee time since 2007. He enters the week ranked 98th in the FedExCup standings. He earned his current position with four cuts made in five attempts, but no finishes inside the top 30. Cink has now gone 36 tournaments without a top 10 and his window for truly contending appears to be slowly fading.

Stewart Cink has been removed from the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

That he appeared in the field in the first place was surprising. Cink has never played in this tournament. He's opened the season with three paydays in as many starts, but has yet to crack a top 30. Still, moderation is valuable. He's 78th in the FedExCup standings early on.

Stewart Cink thrashed Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course for eight birdies en route to a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic.

Cink hit 13 greens in regulation today, so he maximized on his scoring opportunities. Four of his birdies ran longer than 12 feet, the highlight dropping in from 29'5" at the par-3 sixth hole. He started on the 10th hole birdied five of his first six and squeezed in a par save from 13'4" at the par-4 11th. Cink walked off with another par conversion at the par-4 ninth, this time from 18-and-a-half feet. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the round measured 4.636. He opened his season with a T33 in Vegas where he shared the 18-hole lead with a 64, so the pieces are in place for him to perhaps emerge with his first victory since the 2009 Open Championship. At 9-under 201, he's the 54-hole clubhouse leader of the McGladrey.

Opening-round co-leader Stewart Cink blew up for a 4-over-par 39-36=75 in his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and posted 3-under 139 at the midpoint, seven strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

So much for the positive direction establish in his bogey-free 64 on Thursday. Today, Cink split only four (of 14) fairways, but he found 13 greens in regulation. That led to four birdies, the longest from 28'1" at the par-4 third hole, but the major champion -- he hasn't won win stealing the Claret Jug at Turnberry in 2009 -- squared two bogeys, one double and a quad. The latter occurred on his second hole of the day. After finding a greenside bunker at the par-4 11th, Cink proceeded to take four whacks from the sand, alternating between two bunkers on either side of the hole.

Stewart Cink fashioned a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to grab outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Cink missed only one green in regulation at TPC Summerlin today and poured in seven birdies, five of which coming home. However, both of his notable birdies disappeared on his front nine, first from 16'7" at the par-3 eighth, and then from 14'9" at the par-5 ninth. This is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 63 at Nicklaus Private at the Humana Challenge in January.
