Shawn Stefani signed for a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the OHL Classic to finish alone in second place at 16-under 268.
Stefani picked up three birdies on the front nine at El Camaleón GC, but his two bogeys outpaced his lone bogey on the back. His final bogey at the par-4 18th might have hurt the most, as a par would have allowed him to join Charley Hoffman in a playoff. The Texan didn't make it easy on himself, as he split just eight of 14 fairways and found just 10 GIR. This marked his second runner-up finish on the PGA TOUR. Nov 16 - 4:36 PM

Shawn Stefani rallied for a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and trails Jason Bohn by a stroke at 14-under 199.

Stefani was a part of the conversation for the majority of the day, but it was a two-shot swing at the par-4 18th that currently defines the tournament. He circled four birdies without a blemish over his first 15 holes, but squared bogeys at the 16th and 17th holes. Just when it looked like he was in the process of letting Bohn run away with the tournament, Stefani made only the second birdie of the day at the par-4 18th, while Bohn suffered a three-putt bogey. The irons have been the calling card Stefani's success this week, landing 42 of 54 GIR through three rounds to tie for second in the tournament. He will try and secure his first PGA TOUR win on Sunday.

Shawn Stefani chased his opening, bogey-free 66 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 6-under-par 31-34=65 to post 11-under 131 at the break, one stroke off the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Stefani started on the back side of El Camaleón today and rattled off five birdies before finally succumbing to his first stumble of the tournament, penciling in a 5 at the par-4 third hole. He bounced back immediately with birdies at 4 and 5 before parring out. Stefani split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation to lay the foundation for the successful day.

Shawn Stefani signed for a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 following his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Stefani did well to avoid blemishes today. For one, he split just eight (of 14) fairways and landed only 12 greens in regulation. While scrambling for par elsewhere, he also buried five birdies, two of which on par 3s. He sits just one stroke off the pace of six clubhouse co-leaders.
Nov 13 - 4:09 PM

Shawn Stefani sits 6-under-par 70-68=138 at the halfway point of the Sanderson Farms Championship, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He and fellow co-leader William McGirt won't sleep on the lead, but neither will complain about that. Stefani hit 14 greens in regulation in each of his two rounds. He's buried eight birdies against just two bogeys. Since his spirited run into July, he's cooled a bit. He cashed in six of his last eight starts, but none went for a top 25.
Nov 7 - 12:41 PM

Shawn Stefani backed up his opening 66 at The McGladrey Classic with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round to post 5-under 135.

He sat one stroke adrift of the 18-hole quad-leaders, but Stefani is now four swings back of the 36-hole leader despite another red number. He split 12 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and was perfect on all 18 looks inside 12 feet, but settled for only three relatively short birdies (at Nos. 13-15). He went just 2-for-4 in scrambling and squared two bogeys.
Oct 24 - 7:48 PM

Shawn Stefani shot a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Gamers are still holding their breath for a return to the form that he flashed early this summer, so maybe he's rekindled it today. Stefani has no better than a T30 (Barclays) in his last seven starts. In his debut at Seaside, he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. Along the way, he picked off four birdies, the longest from just 10'10" at the par-4 second hole, before converting an eagle putt from 15-and-a-half feet at the par-5 1th. He double-bogeyed the par-4 14th, but had saved par earlier from 10'11" at the par-4 fourth.

Shawn Stefani sets his sights on TPC Summerlin for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Stefani was a distant T53 at last week's Open, but at least he now has the rust knocked off. The putter was the likely culprit, as he now ranks 82nd in strokes gained: putting after just one week of statistical returns. Las Vegas tends to turn into a birdie fest, which can often mean a putting contest. He'll need to roll it better this week if he is to contend.

Shawn Stefani opened the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 2-under-par 36-33=69 to establish the very early clubhouse lead.

Stefani went out in the first threesome off the first tee at TPC Boston today. He hit 15 greens in regulation and circled three birdies. The longest among the pair of conventional conversions measured 27'3" at the par-4 sixth, but the highlight came in the form of a hole-out from a bunker 11 yards away at the par-4 13th. His only bogey occurred at the par-5 seventh where he failed to find the GIR. Stefani arrived slotted 67th in the FedExCup standings.

Shawn Stefani enters the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings.

Stefani is a first-timer in the FedExCup Playoffs and tied for 30th in The Barclays last week. Considering he entered the Playoffs in the 83rd spot, he's poised to make a deep run with a solid result at TPC Boston. He sits 38th in the all-around ranking, so his game seems adaptable to many different types of layouts. Perhaps TPC Boston will be a friendly venue.

Shawn Stefani arrived at the midpoint of the Wyndham Championship in 6-under-par 67-67=134 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Stefani has served as a model of patience and execution this season. En route to his current position at 82nd in the FedExCup standings, he's made news often enough to warrant consideration as a strong weekly investment on top of growing value in the long-term. Thus far at Sedgefield, he's hit 13 greens in regulation during both walks. After six birdies against three bogeys on Thursday, Stefani offset a lone bogey at the par-4 first with four birdies, the longest measuring 20'10'" at the par-3 third hole. He walked off with a par conversion from 10'4" at the par-4 ninth.

Shawn Stefani authored a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the 96th PGA Championship.

He wasn't in the field until David Toms withdrew on Tuesday, but Stefani made the absolute most of it in what was his first round in the season's final major. He went 3-for-13 in birdie chances, the highlight finding its target from 28'8" at the par-4 17th hole. He signed his card situated three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Aug 7 - 6:56 PM

Shawn Stefani has been added to the field of 156 at this week's PGA Championship.

He gained entry when David Toms withdrew. Stefani took the last two weeks off following a missed cut at The Open Championship, but he's pieced together a fine season despite only 13 starts. Frankly, everything he's given has been a bonus given that he started the season with only two starts on a Minor Medical Extension. Currently leading the PGA TOUR in total driving. NOTE: John Huh is now first alternate.

Shawn Stefani spun a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National, but lost to Justin Rose in a playoff at 4-under 280.

Stefani was looking to become the latest first-time winner on the PGA TOUR, but a messy double bogey on the first hole of a playoff prevented that. He started his day hot, with three birdies outpacing a pair of bogeys over his first eight holes. He then played the final 10 like a U.S. Open, alternating a birdie from 14'5" on the par-5 16th with a bogey at the par-4 17th. Needing a birdie on 18 to win or a par to force additional action, he split the fairway and found the green before securing the two-putt par. While a career-best finish is reason to celebrate, the immediate takeaway is that, as one of the top four finishers inside the top 12 and ties not otherwise exempt into The Open Championship, he's now exempt into the season's third major. Joining him are Charley Hoffman (T3), Ben Martin (T3) and Brendan Steele (T5). (Andres Romero also tied for fifth, but loses the tiebreaker due to the Official World Golf Ranking. Steele is 120th; Romero is 194th.)
Jun 29 - 6:18 PM

Shawn Stefani made a third-round move up the leaderboard in the Quicken Loans National with a 3-under-par 36-32=68.

A birdie on the opening hole was erased by a bogey at the par-5 ninth hole, but Stefani caught fire on the back nine. He rolled in a 23'1" birdie on the par-4 14th, and then ended his round with back-to-back birdies. He was very average across the board statistically, but didn't have any big struggles. His 3-under 211 should place him safely inside the top 10 entering the final round.
