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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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.

Kevin Tway will have a go at TPC River Highlands in this week's Travelers Championship.

The rookie will look to build on his impressive U.S. Open performance, where three of his four rounds were 72 or better on his way to a T60 finish. This course should bring back good memories, as Tway made his professional debut at the 2011 Travelers Championship. Gamers should consider him only as a high-risk, high-reward selection this week.

Kevin Tway is in the field at the RBC Heritage on a sponsor exemption.

Tway has yet to prove himself on the PGA Tour, despite having plenty of chances to do so. The rookie is now 2-for-10 this year, 2-for-17 cuts made for his career. His conservative approach may prove to be handy this week as he will attempt to grind away at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Kevin Tway will try and tackle TPC San Antonio for the first time in the Valero Texas Open.

The rookie can generally glean some advice from his father, Bob, before a tournament, but that may be a little challenging this week. Despite Bob playing in 16 editions of this event, including a runner-up in 2003, none of those took place at the current venue. Kevin has struggled to find his way this season, ranking 178th in the FedExCup standings having missed seven of his nine cuts.

Kevin Tway is in the field at the Waste Management Phoenix Open on a sponsor exemption.

If only he were capitalizing on these free passes. The PGA TOUR rookie went 0-for-2 in the fall portion of the season, making both starts on sponsor exemptions. He cracked the first three fields of 2014 on merit and cashed just once for what qualifies as a career-best T37 at the Farmers Insurance Open. During the holiday break in the U.S., he added a missed cut at the Thailand Golf Championship. Only three golfers from the graduate reshuffle are in the field at TPC Scottsdale as of this moment -- Ricky Barnes (sponsor exemption) is an established veteran, albeit a non-winner, while Danny Lee navigated the open qualifier. Investors will never begrudge a guy for getting the lion's share of sponsor exemptions, but at some point the absence of success in their wake could add pressure to Bob Tway's son.

There is no question that Kevin Tway earned his card for the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season on his own merit by finishing inside the top 25 on the Web.com Tour regular season money list, but his recognizable last name and famous father have helped him pick up some early starts.

A poor Web.com Tour Finals had Bob's son buried deep down the reshuffle list, making starts hard to come by without a little generosity. Fortunately for Kevin, three tournaments found room to slide him into the field with a sponsor exemption. He tied for 40th at the Frys.com Open before missing cuts at The McGladrey Classic and the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. The takeaway is that, while he is subject to the reshuffle, he shouldn't have too much trouble getting starts.

Kevin Tway has been added to the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Tway was the eighth alternate when the field was released on Friday, but he received the last sponsor exemption into the tournament. It became available after the first wave of field changes this morning. He made his first two starts of the 2013-14 season on sponsor exemptions as well, with a T40 at the Frys.com Open to show for it. While he's a PGA TOUR rookie, Tway is already 0-for-1 at El Camaleón, having missed the cut last year.

Kevin Tway was one of three golfers eliminated in a five-man playoff at Coyote Springs (Nev.) Golf Club in the open qualifier for this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

He shot 5-under-par 67 (6 birdies, 1 bogey) in regulation, one stroke adrift of the co-medalists. Bobby Gates (67) also sunk six birdies against one bogey before getting ousted. Doug LaBelle II (67) was the third bounced despite seven birdies against two bogeys.

Kevin Tway spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-31=65 in his second round of the Frys.com Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie split only seven (of 14) fairways but he landed 16 greens in regulation and sunk six birdies. Four of his par breakers fell in from 11 feet or longer, the most notable measuring 24'11" at the seventh hole and 25'5" at 14. He's 7-under 135 at the midpoint, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Kevin Tway is set to embark on his rookie campaign at the Frys.com Open.

Tway already has seven starts under his best over the last few seasons, due in part to his father's presence in the game, but hasn't cashed a check on the PGA TOUR. He earned his card by finishing inside the top 25 in the Web.com Tour regular season, but finds himself 44th in the reshuffle. He needed a sponsor exemption to nab a tee time at CordeValle Golf Club.

Kevin Tway fired a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open, then birdied the first playoff hole against Spencer Levin to claim his first Web.com Tour title at 23-under 261.

If Tway's name sounds familiar, it should. He's the son of PGA TOUR winner Bob Tway and a product of the Oklahoma State collegiate golf machine. After opening with birdies on three of his first seven holes at Hillcrest CC, the younger Tway went on a par streak. Just when it looked as if Levin would take home the trophy, Tway rattled off a birdie-eagle-birdie run on 15, 16 and 17 to force a playoff. With this victory, he moves to sixth on the Web.com Tour money list and assures himself a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card.
