Chris Kirk signed for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 following his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions to post 4-under 212 with one round remaining.

He split only half of the 14 fairways and hit just 11 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to two bogeys while scattering five birdies, three of which on par 5s. Kirk is well on his way to what would easily be his best finish in four career starts in WGCs.

Chris Kirk signed for a 3-under-par 33-36=69 following his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions and sits two shots in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Kirk hadn't played Sheshan International Golf Club in competition before today. He fared just fine, thank you. Five birdies and two bogeys later, he's right there entering the second round. If you missed it, he tied for 48th place at the BMW Masters (also in Shanghai) last week. Prior to it, he won in Boston and tossed up T4s in the Georgia stops -- Atlanta and Sea Island.
Nov 6 - 2:22 AM

Chris Kirk submitted a 3-under-par 33-34=67 for his final round of The McGladrey Classic to post 12-under 268, two strokes adrift of the 72-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

The defending champ hit only 12 greens in regulation today, but he erased two bogeys with five birdies. That set featured respective rolls from 14'10", 20'5" and 31'1" at the second, third and 15th holes. He also poured in par saves ranging 10-12 feet at 13 and 14. This will be his third top 10s in four starts dating back to his win at the Deutsche Bank Championship. It's the kind of consistently strong form that he projects, but too often fails to fulfill. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Chris Kirk enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic to post 9-under 201 and earn a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

It was a bit of a mixed bag for the defending champ at Seaside today. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, but squared three bogeys, including a three-putt from inside 25 feet at the par-4 second hole. Overall, he fanned on three tries inside eight feet. However, Kirk more than made up for the close calls with an eagle from 115 yards in the fairway at the par-4 eighth hole. He also converted five birdies, including rolls from 24'6", 13'1" and 14'11" at Nos. 1, 4 and 18, respectively.
Oct 25 - 4:28 PM

Chris Kirk followed his opening, bogey-free 68 at The McGladrey Classic with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round.

The defending champion tripped at the gate, penciling in a 6 at the par-4 10th hole where he found trouble off the tee. He was blemish-free thereafter and found five birdies, including rolls of 18'1" and 13'1" at Nos. 13 and 8, respectively. At 5-under 135, Kirk is four strokes off Russell Henley's 36-hole lead.
Oct 24 - 6:16 PM

Chris Kirk opened his title defense of The McGladrey Classic with a bogey-free, 2-under-par 33-35=68.

He was one of only two golfers to avoid the bogeyman today (Mark Wilson, 67), so even though the field scoring average landed at 69.870 (-0.130 strokes to par), the course won a few battles. Kirk split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation. He buried two birdies, including a roll from 8'1" at the par-4 fifth. That was his longest conversion of the day. He's lurking three swings adrift of the foursome sharing the overnight lead.

Chris Kirk begins his 2014-15 campaign as the defending champion at The McGladrey Classic.

Kirk finished his week at 14-under-par 266 and emerged by a stroke over Briny Baird and Tim Clark on Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course. Kirk's win sparked a career season that featured a FedExCup Playoff win at the Deutsche Bank Championship and $4,854,777 in earnings. It will be hard for him to eclipse what he did in 2013-14 this time around, but he has to try and start somewhere.
Oct 20 - 9:57 PM

Chris Kirk fashioned a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, grabbing the early clubhouse lead at 7-under 273.

Kirk got the flat stick working early and often during his finale. It started with a 10'10" bogey save on the difficult par-3 sixth. He proceeded to roll in three more putts from outside ten feet before the round was over, none measuring more than 11 feet. It could have easily been one better, as his 21'6" putt on the par-4 17th missed by mere inches. Kirk will now sit and watch anxiously in the clubhouse, just in case his 7-under aggregate is good enough.
Sep 14 - 5:11 PM

Chris Kirk took a step back with a 1-over-par 37-34=71 in the third round of the TOUR Championship.

Kirk circled routine birdies on the par-4 third and par-5 15th holes, but those were offset by a bogey on the par-4 first and double on the par-3 sixth where he splashed his tee shot. His putter was of no help today, as he walked off with a -0.048 strokes gained-putting for the round. Entering the week as the FedExCup leader, Kirk now finds himself in striking distance, just four strokes off the 54-hole lead at 5-under 205.
Sep 13 - 6:40 PM

Overnight co-leader Chris Kirk signed for a 2-under-par 33-35=68 following his second round of the TOUR Championship.

Kirk hit 13 greens in regulation and failed to get up and down twice in five tries (and swallowed bogeys), but he added a pair of three-putt bogeys at the par-4 fourth and par-3 11th holes. So, his six birdies really aided in avoiding a free fall on the leaderboard. Kirk buried birdie looks from 15 feet, 25'10" and 28'1" at Nos. 3, 7 and 8, respectively. He also converted his attempt for par at the par-4 fifth from 20'3". At 6-under 134, he's two strokes off Billy Horschel's 36-hole lead.
Sep 12 - 3:05 PM

Chris Kirk smoothed a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the TOUR Championship and finished with a share of the overnight lead with playing partner Billy Horschel.

You could make an argument that the two fed off each other since Kirk and Horschel were the only two in the field that signed blemish-free scorecards. Kirk split nine (of 14) fairways and went 5-for-5 in scrambling while picking off four birdies. His longest conventional conversion measured 11'2" at the par-5 15th hole, but his highlight occurred at the par-4 17th. His escape from rough right of the fairway came to rest short of the green and 27 yards from the cup. He calmly chipped in for what was his final birdie of the round. His strokes gained: tee-to-green landed at 2.991, good for third-best in the field of 29.
Sep 11 - 5:52 PM

Chris Kirk arrived at East Lake Golf Club for the TOUR Championship ranked first in the FedExCup standings.

Simply put, Kirk holds all of the cards this week. Any player inside the top five in the FEC standings that produces a win is guaranteed the FEC title. With that perk comes the additional pressure of having to play for not just the tournament title, but the $10,000,000 pot of gold at the end of the 2013-14 rainbow. It's hard to imagine him winning two out of the last three tournaments of the year, but stranger things have happened.
Sep 9 - 9:19 PM

Chris Kirk spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 15-under 269, good for a two-stroke victory over a trio of runners-up.

Kirk began the week ranked 17th in the FedExCup standings, but now ascends to the top spot. His lap around TPC Boston featured five birdies and 13 pars. Three of those birdies were of notable length, falling from 10'11", 22'8" and 13'2" on the ninth, 13th and 16th holes, respectively. The putter was the key to his week as he ranked fifth in strokes gained. He also managed to play his final 39 holes without a blemish, which never hurts. With his third PGA TOUR victory (and second this season) coming as the perfect time, he now finds himself squarely on the bubble in terms of Ryder Cup consideration. Captain Tom Watson will announce his three captain's picks tomorrow, and it stands to reason that Kirk, who finished the season 14th in the Ryder Cup standings, will be on the short list of candidates.
Sep 1 - 5:57 PM

Chris Kirk fired a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to join Rory McIlroy in the clubhouse lead at 10-under 203.

Kirk recorded his seven birdies in bunches, beginning with back-to-back birdies at the first and second holes at TPC Boston. He would then throw in a trio of birdies on the ninth, 10th and 11th holes before closing with back-to-back birdies at 17 and 18. Of his birdies, only his chip-in from 28'8" on the par-4 17th fell from outside of seven feet, as proximity was a key to his success. He putted to a 1.583 avearage on Sunday despite barely gaining ground in the strokes gained category.
