Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 376 Shawn Stefani authored a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in the second round of the Houston Open for a 36-hole total of 8-under 136, up six places on the live leaderboard to T4, three short of clubhouse leader Beau Hossler. UPDATE: With play completed, Stefani is T11.

The Houston resident is making his seventh straight appearance with two prior top 25s and one top 10, a solo 5th in 2014 (67-69-73-69). It's his 12th start of the season with three top 25s and one top 10, a T10 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms back in October. The Lamar alum arrived off a T13 at last week's inaugural Corales Championship, which ended a streak of six straight missed cuts. He opened with a bogey-free 67, one of 26 blemish-free laps in R1 (preferred lies). It was a tale of two nines on Friday for the 36-year-old, circling four birdies at 10, 12, 13 and 15 on his first half and finishing up with eight pars and a bogey-5 at 6 (second shot in the water). He lost 0.939 strokes off-the-tee but gained 2.690 on-the-green, taking 27 total putts.

Round one of the Houston Open was suspended due to darkness around 7:45 p.m. CT and is set to resume at 7:20 a.m. on Friday morning.

A two-hour morning rain delay pushed back tee times and there wasn't enough daylight to get everyone to the clubhouse in time. At press time there are 36 golfers still on the course but that may dwindle down to 33 or 30 if a few of the threesomes decide to finish their closing hole. Before play was called for the day, Shawn Stefani was one of the golfers that went out in the afternoon and finished in time. The Texan cruised to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 35-32=67 to find himself in a share of 10th place on the live leaderboard. He is making his seventh appearance at this event and looking to match or eclipse his previous best of solo fifth which came back in the 2014 edition. With no more precipitation in the forecast, there shouldn't be any more delays to worry about.

Shawn Stefani heads to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week looking to turn things around after an ugly stretch.

Stefani has missed the cut in three consecutive tournaments dating back to the OHL Classic in Mayabona back in November. He started off with a couple of decent showings, including a 20th-place at El Camaleon, and a 10th-place finish at the Sanderson Farms Championship back in late October. However, he has shot 71 or higher in six of his past seven rounds and there isn't a whole lot of reason to like him at Pebble Beach. He isn't a masher off the tee, he has been completely inaccurate from the tee box and he is poor out of the sand and around the green.

Two-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 349 Shawn Stefani readies for his fourth straight OHL Classic at Mayakoba, site of one (of two) career runner-up finishes.

The Texan is 2-for-3 at the OHL with progressively worse finishes. He MC'd last year by three (72-71), preceded by T25/2016, where he was T8 thru 54 holes, and a career-tying-best solo 2nd on debut in 2015, which buoyed him to his career-best season on TOUR, finishing 54th in the FedExCup standings. The 35-year-old finished a career-worst 165th in FEC points last season, his fifth on TOUR, with two top 25s among 11 cashes in 26 starts and one top 10, a T10 at the Shriners 53 weeks ago. He looked headed for the Beyond 150 category, MC'ing the first two WCT Finals events, before banging out a T20 and T2 in the last two (15th in the priority rankings).

Shawn Stefani sets his eyes on The Old White TPC ahead of this week's Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

The Texan isn't having much success this season with an 8-for-20 record that has him positioned 166th in the FedExCup race. The lowest he's previously finished in four years on TOUR is 135th (2013). On the bright side, his Greenbrier resume is squeaky clean, 3-for-3 with improving results upon each return (T59 to T35 to T13). His season-long results to don't jump off the page but his long-term stats suggest he is too talented to keep finishing outside the top 40 each week.

World No. 416 Shawn Stefani was disqualified after a 4-over-par 37-37=74 in Round 3 of the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Media updated the situation, citing an incorrect scorecard as the reason for Stefani's early exit.

At press time, no information has been gleaned as to the reason for the DQ. The Lamar University alum had opened his fourth Nelson in even-par 71-69, T51 at halftime, and outbalanced a pair of birdie-4s with six bogeys on Day 3. At 4-over 214, he would've have settled in at T71 to begin the finale had he continued. This is the Texan's first career DQ in his 112th career TOUR start. If more information becomes available, we'll update the post. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Media updated the situation, citing an incorrect scorecard as the reason for Stefani's early exit.

Shawn Stefani coasted his way toward a 3-under-par 34-35=69 during the opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, staking out an early spot inside the top 10.

The 35-year-old picked off three birdies over his first 10 holes and maintained a clean card until the par-4 13th where he'd miss a 7-foot par-saving attempt. That would remain his only blemish on the day. Overall, this round featured some steady drives, good lag putting, and solid scrambling. The Texan walked off the course gaining 1.924 strokes putting, but he'll need to tidy up his iron play if he wants to keep his name in the mix for three more days.

Shawn Stefani smoothed a 4-under-par 35-33=68 during the opening round at the Valero Texas Open to find himself just two strokes off the early pace set by Branden Grace.

The Texan found just six (of 14) fairways today but recovered to still circle six birdies by day's end. His short game was the key to success as he splashed home four putts from outside 12 feet in addition to a 23'5" hole out from the fringe at the par-3 third hole. Stefani was leaking a bit of oil entering the week, missing the cut in six of his last seven starts but appears to have found some magic on day one. The Texas native and resident is enjoying his return home as he seeks his third straight top 30 at TPC San Antonio.

Shawn Stefani sets his eyes on Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club's Copperhead Course as he readies for this week's Valspar Championship.

The Texan arrives on the heels of three straight missed cuts, in three different states (Arizona, California, and Florida). Before that, he opened the 2016-17 campaign with a 3-for-5 record that included a T10 at the Shriners. A return to the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort could be just what Stefani needs to find some of that lost form. The 35-year-old finished T7 in his 2013 Valspar debut and returned with a T17 in 2015 (T56 last year). With a solid course resume, Stefani makes for an interesting sleeper this week in deeper fantasy formats.

Shawn Stefani breezed through Waialae Country Club on his way to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64, finding himself T4 after day one of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Stefani is making his fourth start of the season and also his fourth start at the Sony Open. He entered with a blemish-free 3-for-3 record here at Waialae Country Club and he was also blemish-free in today's round. The Texan striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. From there, he converted on five putts from outside five feet, including a whopper 21'4" birdie blast at the par-4 10th. Stefani already sports a T6 on his Sony Open resume but is still searching for his first PGA TOUR title.

World No. 328 Shawn Stefani has nine career top-10 finishes in 98 career events.

Last season, the Texas native and resident finished 123rd in FedExCup points with one top 10 in 29 starts. It was the third straight year that he qualified for the Playoffs, bowing out with a T64 at The Barclays. The 35-year-old played 84 rounds and co-led after two, sharing first-round leads at the OHL Classic (finished T25) and the FedEx St. Jude (finished T9). He's 1-for-3 so far this season, sandwiching a T10 at the Shriners with missed cuts at the Sanderson Farms and the OHL. Stefani's career marks are a pair of runners-up, most recently at the 2015 OHL (solo 2nd), and a playoff loss at the 2014 Quicken Loans National.

Shawn Stefani rallied for a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to wrap his third appearance on 14-under 270, up 15 places to T10 with play still in progress.

The 34-year-old missed the cut on debut in 2015 and was T62 last year on progressively worse rounds of 69-70-71-72, but sandwiched 70-68 with bookend 66s this week. Last season, he finished 123rd in FedExCup points with one top 10 (T9, FedEx St. Jude) in 29 starts, and missed the cut last week in Mississippi in his first event of 2016-17. The Lamar University alum pelted 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR. He turned in 1-under, outpacing bogeys at five and seven (failed scrambles) with birdie-3 at the fourth and a pitch-in eagle-3 at the ninth (from 50'7" away). The Texan came home in blemish-free 4-under, connecting four straight circles on holes 14-17, kicking off the run with 32-footer at the par-3 14th.

Shawn Stefani styled a 5-under-par 32-34=66 during the opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, placing him T7 on the live leaderboard with the afternoon wave is still in progress.

The Texan was all over the map on the front nine, circling three birdies but also swallowing a pair of bogeys. On top of that, he holed out for eagle from 176 yards at the par-4 sixth hole. The back nine was much calmer as he circled two more birdies to go with seven pars. On the day, Stefani gained 3.21 strokes approaching-the-green, accounting for 85 percent of his 3.78 total strokes gained. In six previous laps around TPC Summerlin, Stefani had posted nothing better than a 2-under 69, so this was a pleasant surprise for gamers that rostered the 34-year-old this week.
