World No. 432 Kevin Tway fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open for a four-day tally of 9-under 279, up one spot into a two-way T3, and a career best in his 44th career start.
The 28-year-old posted rounds of 70-68-72-69 to finish three adrift of overnight leader and champion Kevin Chappell. Not only is the T3 a career best, it's his first top-25 finish, brushing aside a T26 at the 2014 Travelers. The Oklahoma State product was making his second visit to TPC San Antonio after a missed cut by five in 2014 (74-78). The podium comes in his 12th start of the season, supplanting a previous-best T32 in his last start at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open. The Tour grad began in a 7-way logjam on 6-under (T4), two back. He outpaced double bogey-6 at six and bogey-4 at 16 with six birdies on Nos. 1, 2, 4, 10, 15 and 17. Tway mustered eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.498 SG: Putting. Apr 23 - 6:55 PM

World No. 432 Kevin Tway carved out an even-par 37-35=72 in today's third round of the Valero Texas Open to post 6-under 210, up three spots into a 7-way T4, two shy of 54-hole leader Kevin Chappell.

After opening in 70-68, the 28-year-old began in a three-way T7 on 6-under, two back of 36-hole co-leaders Bud Cauley and Tony Finau. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 4.546 strokes tee-to-green. The Oklahoman was birdie-less 2-over thru 13 holes, squaring bogey-5s at nine and 12 (3-putt from 28'1"), but leveled the card with birdie-4 at 14 and birdie-3 at 17, 2-putting the latter from 18'5" after driving the green. He posted a pedestrian 2.000 putts per GIR and -2.204 SG: Putting. Tway is looking for his first top-25 finish in 44 career TOUR events. His best so far is T26 at the 2014 Travelers.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 432 Kevin Tway authored a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's second round of the Valero Texas Open to post 6-under 138, up 26 spots to T7, two back of 36-hole co-leaders Bud Cauley and Tony Finau.

This is the 28-year-old's second appearance, first since a missed cut (by five) in 2014 on rounds of 74-78. He entered the week 175th in the FedExCup standings with seven made cuts in 11 events with a best of T32 in his last start at the Puerto Rico Open four weeks ago. The Oklahoman kicked off with 70 (five birdies, three bogeys) and opened his scoring in R2 with bogey-5 at 12 (failed sand save) his only blemish. He bounced back with a pitch-in birdie-2 at 13 (from 47'5" away) and then eagled the par-5 14th from 10'9". Tway would add further circles at 18 and 6, the latter from 20'11", posting 3.793 in SG: Putting. In 43 career TOUR events, he does not own a top 25 yet, recording a career-best T26 at the 2014 Travelers.
Apr 21 - 8:41 PM Tour grad and World No. 420 Kevin Tway is at Coco Beach Golf and Country Club for the Puerto Rico Open and checks in at 173rd in the FedExCup standings.

The 28-year-old missed the cut by three in his only other appearance in 2014 (73-73). He's 6-for-10 on the season with a best of T35 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms back in late-October, and arrives off a missed cut (by six) at the Genesis Open as an open-qualifier. The Oklahoma State product began the season 19th on the WCT Priority Ranking and with 41 FEC points, has dipped to 28th on the reshuffle post-Genesis.

Kevin Tway twirled a 7-under-par 34-31=65 while taking on the Eisenhower Course at Industry Hills Golf Club during today's open qualifier into the Genesis Open. Others joining Tway in the field at Riviera Country Club are: Jonathan Garrick (-6), J.T. Poston and Kevin Dougherty (-5) with the latter two surviving a 6-for-2 playoff.

Tway finished T48 at last week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and he'd love to keep that momentum rolling. Today he bogeyed the par-4 sixth hole but camouflaged the bogey with eight birdies, sprinkled throughout the scorecard. Despite the pedigree, Tway is still searching for his first top 25 on TOUR. UCLA product Jonathan Garrick also safely advanced to the Genesis, where he'll be making his second career PGA TOUR start. That left six golfers at 5-under 67 on the Monday Qualifier leaderboard. The four that were eliminated include: Tag Ridings, Brandon Hagy, Kenny Pigman, and Steven Alker. The surviving two were J.T. Poston (6-for-9 on the season) and Kevin Dougherty who will be making his PGA TOUR debut on Thursday.
Feb 13 - 9:32 PM

Kevin Tway finds himself 27th in the Tour graduate reshuffle heading into the 2017 portion of the schedule.

Entering the season with a 9-for-32 record on the PGA TOUR, Tway is off to a much better start this time around. He was 4-for-5 during the fall, with his one missed cut being on the number. His biggest weapon has been the driver as he currently ranks 21st in strokes gained off-the-tee but is losing strokes to the field approaching-the-green and around-the-green. The cuts-made improvement is promising so far, but he's still never finish a round on the PGA TOUR positioned inside the top 5. Gamers should note the gains in consistency but also be aware this his upside is still somewhat limited until he proves otherwise.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 09:38:00 AM Tour grad Kevin Tway embarks on his second PGA TOUR season at this week's Safeway Open at the Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course.

The Oklahoma native and resident's rookie TOUR season was in 2014 where he went just 8-for-23 and finished 177th in the FedExCup standings. He's made only one start in each of the past two seasons, posting a T54 at the 2015 Shriners and a MC (by one) at the 2016 U.S. Open as a sectional qualifier. The 28-year-old is a one-time winner in 75 career events on the Tour (2013 Boise Open). He had two top fives among three top 10s in 20 starts last year, 27th on the regular-season money list, but secured his card in the Finals with a T3 at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, finishing 13th in Finals money. Tway posted a T40 at the Safeway upon last visit in 2014 and MC in 2011.

Kevin Tway punched a ticket to his third career U.S. Open after recording a 7-under-par 71-66=137 in the sectional qualifier held at Lakeside Country Club in Houston, Texas. Derek Chang and Austin Jordan will join him as co-medalists.

Tway boasts a 9-for-31 career record on the PGA TOUR, and just 1-for-2 in major championships. He's currently playing on the Tour where he is 7-for-10 on the season with four top 15s. Derek Chang and Austin Jordan also finished on 7-under 137. They will both make their PGA TOUR debuts next week at Oakmont Country Club. Not the easiest venue to throw yourself into the mix. Some notables that missed out include: 140--James Driscoll...141--Ed Loar...WD--Martin Flores

Kevin Tway fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Servientrega Championship to take a one-stroke lead into the finale at 11-under 205.

He wrestled the lead away from the 36-hole leader, Brad Fritsch, who is now one back. Tway circled six birdies at TPC Cartagena, three on each nine, and navigated the round without a blemish. Already 45th on the Tour money list, he should make his way inside the top five with a victory.

Kevin Tway hoisted the hardware at the 2013 Albertsons Boise Open and finds his way back this week for another crack at Hillcrest Country Club.

The Oklahoma State product finished T32 in his title defense last year. Tway arrives this week ranked 19th on the Tour money list. Most of the damage was done at two events, a T2 at El Bosque Mexico Championship and a T4 at the Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship. Tway has just one start on the PGA TOUR this season, but gamers will be seeing a lot more of the youngster if he finishes the Tour season with a bang.

Former PGA TOUR member Kevin Tway survived a 4-for-3 playoff at Dragon Ridge Golf Club in Henderson, Nevada, in the open qualifier for this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Tway two-putted for birdie to conclude the four-spotter this morning. Scott Harrington was the odd man out. Tway completed regulation in 6-under-par 31-33=64 with seven birdies against one bogey. He finished his rookie season on the PGA TOUR slotted 177th in the FedExCup standings, and then placed 40th among the 25 chasing 2014-15 cards at the Tour Finals. Wes Homan took medalist honors at Dragon Ridge at 8-under 34-28=62. He poured in seven of his nine birdies coming home and squared only one bogey throughout. Former PGA TOUR member Wes Roach turned in a 6-under 33-31=64 (8 birdies, 2 bogeys) before escaping the playoff. Mark Baldwin (bogey-free, 6-under 32-32=64; 6 birdies) rounds out the qualifiers. The field at TPC Summerlin is now complete at 144.

Kevin Tway will defend his 2013 Albertsons Boise Open title this week in Idaho.

Tway in nearing the end of his rookie season on the PGA TOUR, and looks destined for a trip to the Finals in hopes of earning a TOUR card for 2014-15 unless things change quickly. He ranks 174th in the FedExCup standings and must finish inside the top 125 in either the FEC or the money list to retain his card. Perhaps the familiar layout of Hillcrest CC will be just what he needs. Should he somehow figure out a way to go back-to-back, he could potentially earn his PGA TOUR card for next season via the Tour regular season with a slight shift in strategy.

Kevin Tway carded a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in his second round of the John Deere Classic to post 8-under 134 at the break, four strokes off the pace of the 36-hole co-leaders.

Tway opened with a birdie conversion from 21'5" at the par-4 first hole today. He added two more, including a roll from 11'9" at 10. That lifted him to bogey-free 9-under through 28 holes. That's when the wheels began to give way. He squared four bogeys on the way in, all as a result of failing to hit the greens in regulation. However, Tway injected an eagle-2 from 12'3" at the drivable par-4 14th and an 11-foot birdie at the par-5 17th to help stem the tide. It's not quite the momentum he'd prefer entering the weekend, but as long as he focused on the final score coming to rest south of 70, then he'll be OK.

Kevin Tway crafted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic, coming to rest two strokes in arrears of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

For a guy that he received a healthy share of sponsor exemptions this season, he's failing to make use. Bob Tway's son has missed 13 of 19 cuts and has finished no better than T26 at the Travelers Championship. Kevin Tway arrived in the Quad Cities 173rd in the FedExCup standings. He missed only two (of 14) fairways and two greens in regulation en route to six birdies. The set featured a 59-footer at the par-4 first -- his 10th of the round -- and conversions from 18'7" and 18'2" at the third and fifth holes, respectively. At last check, his strokes gained-putting split measured 3.725, aiding in part by the bomb at 1 but also the fact that he didn't miss inside 11 feet all day. While he's just a rookie, it's worth noting that today's 65 matches his career low; it's the third occurrence.
