Kevin Tway checks into the Waste Management Phoenix Open this weekend looking for his third consecutive cut, and seventh in eight events this season.
While playing into the weekend is nice, the powerful Tway needs to do better. His best finish is 28th at The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges, and he has faded every weekend so far this season. The good news is that he ranks fifth on the PGA Tour in Driving Distance (318.6 yards), and he is decent in GIR. He also handles himself well out of the sand, ranking 35th in Sand Save Percentage. That's an area that could be important at TPC Scottsdale. But he'll need to do better than his dismal 73.17 Round 4 Scoring Average if he is going to make his DFS owners happy. Jan 31 - 10:14 PM

Kevin Tway trounced on Silverado Resorts and Spa's North Course during round one of the Safeway Open, penciling a 4-under-par 36-32=68 to find himself inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

The 29-year-old started his day on the back nine and did most of his scoring before the turn. His putter was dialed in to start the round, sinking five putts from outside 11 feet over his first 10 holes. Tway would add a sixth long-distance putt (18'5) at the par-4 fourth, but that one was simply to save par. The big hitter walked off the course gaining 2.715 strokes putting on the day. Tway finished T62 in his debut at Silverado last year, but he's definitely on pace to shatter that in his second attempt.

World No. 179 Kevin Tway is at Silverado Resort and Spa for his fourth Safeway Open.

In his second full season on TOUR (2014), the 29-year-old finished a career-best 69th in the final FedExCup standings in 2016-17. He went 21-for-27 with six top 25s and three top 10s, highlighted by a pair of career-best 3rd-place finishes at the Valero Texas Open and the Zurich (teamed with Kelly Kraft). The Oklahoman posted T43 (The NT), T40 (Dell) and T53 at the BMW in his FEC Playoffs debut. This is his fourth Safeway, finishing T62 last year (71-69-72-74) and T40/2014 and MC/2011, the latter two at CordeValle GC.

World No. 185 Kevin Tway readies for his NORTHERN TRUST debut and arrives at 72nd in the FedExCup standings.

In his second full season on TOUR, first since 2014, the 29-year-old is making his debut in the FEC Playoffs and checks in off a missed cut (by one) last week at the Wyndham on 2-under 72-66=138. He's 18-for-24 on the season with six top 25s and three top 10s, highlighted by a pair of career-best 3rd-place finishes 12 and 13 starts ago, respectively. The Oklahoman posted a T3 at the Valero Texas Open in April and chased the following week with 3rd at the Zurich teamed with Kelly Kraft. His current form reads: CUT-T37-T48-T12-T55-T43.

Kevin Tway twirled an 8-under-par 30-33=63 during round two of the John Deere Classic, signing for his career-low round as he reached 9-under 133 at the midpoint.

Tway opened his day on the back nine with six straight pars. That is where the fireworks started as he rattled home a 23'3" birdie splash at the 16th. That would kickoff a seven-hole birdie train. That included two more birdie bombs from outside 24 feet, and eclipsed his career-best birdie streak (4). Throughout his round, Tway setup eight birdie looks from inside 10 feet, so this was really a good mix of ball-striking and putting. This also goes in the books as his personal best round on the PGA TOUR, beating out a 6-under 64 during R3 of this year's AT&T Byron Nelson. This was truly a career round for Tway and he's now well-positioned to make a weekend run at his first PGA TOUR title.

Kevin Tway readies for his third John Deere Classic, first since a best of T52 in 2014 (65-69-72-71), and checks in at 33rd in the FedExCup standings.

The 28-year-old ended 2016 at 420 in OWGR and has climbed to 190. He's 15-for-20 on the season with five top 25s and three top 10s, arriving off T55 (Quicken Loans), T43 (Travelers), and T31 (FedEx St. Jude). All three of the Oklahoma State's top 10s double as top 5s and came in succession, posting a career-best T3 at the VTO, career-tying-best 3rd at the Zurich (teamed with Kelly Kraft), and T5 at the Wells Fargo. He'd be higher in OWGR but the Zurich didn't award world-ranking points, only FEC points. Tway slots 10th on TOUR in Driving Distance - All Drives (296.4 yards), and 86th in scoring average (70.904).

World No. 282 Kevin Tway rallied for a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to wrap his second appearance on 7-under 281, up three places into a three-way T5, three adrift of champion Brian Harman.

The 28-year-old bags his third straight top-5 finish in as many weeks, joining T3 (Valero) and solo 3rd last week in New Orleans (teamed with Kelly Kraft), the latter two results are tied career bests (46 career events). The Oklahoma State product was making his 14th start of the season, and prior to the run, had a best of T32 at the Puerto Rico Open. Over the past three weeks, he's vaulted from 175th in the FedExCup standings to 55th. After opening in 72-70-69, the Tour grad began T8 on 5-under, three back of 54-hole leader Patrick Reed. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.750 putts per GIR and 1.433 SG: Putting. Tway was birdie-less 1-over thru 12 holes, squaring bogey-4 at five, but awoke to circle 13 (from 18'9"), 14 and 16, from between seven and nine feet. He also saved par three times from between six and nine feet, including a 6-footer at the par-5 last to secure the top-5 finish.

World No. 282 Kevin Tway shot a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a three-day tally of 5-under 211, up 11 places on the live leaderboard to T9, three shy of 54-hole clubhouse leader Patrick Reed.

The 28-year-old is in the field via a top-10 finish at last week's Zurich while teamed with Kelly Kraft. His solo third in New Orleans was his second third-place finish in as many weeks (T3, Valero), both career bests in 45 career TOUR starts. After kicking off in 72-70, the Oklahoma State product began T20 on 2-under, four back of 18- and 36-hole leader Francesco Molinari. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and mustered 10 greens in regulation, posting a sterling 1.400 putts per GIR and 2.918 SG: Putting. Tway squared three bogeys at holes 5, 9 and 10 (failed scrambles), offset by six birdies at 4, 6-8, 12 and 16, three from between eight and 14 feet.

In best-ball action in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Kevin Tway and Kelly Kraft spun a bogey-free 11-under-par 31-30=61 for a 72-hole tally of 23-under 265, up three places to solo 3rd, four back of a 2-team playoff that will happen on Monday due to darkness.

For Tway, this was his second straight 3rd-place finish in as many weeks (T3/Valero), matching a career best (45th start). For Kraft, it's his second top 10 of the season in 16 starts, both top 3s (2nd, AT&T Pro-Am). After opening in 71 (alternate shot), 63 (best ball) and 70 (alternate), the 28-year-old's began in T6 on 12-under, seven shy of 54-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith. Tway opened with birdie-4 at two, went back-to-back at three, and then ripped off a hat-trick on holes 5-7. Tway added his sixth birdie at the 11th before Kraft got going with a pitch-in birdie-3 at 13 and a 15-footer for birdie-2 at 14. It was Kraft again for a 3 at the 16th and then he finished his personal rally with a walk-off eagle-3 at the 18th from 22'3".

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.

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.
Fri, Apr 21, 2017 08:41:00 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.

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.
