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. Nov 6 - 5:16 PM

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.

Shawn Stefani finished his week at the Wyndham Championship in a share of 14th place, moving him from 133rd in the FedExCup standings up to 123rd, securing his PGA TOUR status and a spot in the upcoming Barclays.

Stefani pieced together rounds of 66-70-66-66 at Sedgefield Country Club, allowing him to sneak inside the FedExCup bubble. After a 54th-place finish in the FEC standings last year, the Texan swallowed eight more missed cuts this season and also six fewer top 25s. It was a disappointing season overall, but it has a happy ending, especially if he makes a run in the Playoffs. Stefani will now turn his attention to the Black Course at Bethpage State Park for The Barclays. The 34-year-old posted 73-73 to miss the cut at the 2009 U.S. Open held at Bethpage Black.

Shawn Stefani styled a 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the opening round of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Stefani found just five (of 14) fairways but recovered to land 16 greens in regulation. Translated to strokes gained, he lost 0.427 strokes off-the-tee but gained 2.775 strokes approaching-the-green. This is Stefani's third trip to Sedgefield Country Club, and he arrived with a T45 and T51 on his Wyndham resume. At 133rd in the FedExCup standings, this is a crucial week for Stefani as he targets the FEC Playoffs as well as PGA TOUR status.
Aug 18 - 12:57 PM

Shawn Stefani smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's final round of the Travelers Championship to finish off his second appearance on 9-under 271, up 23 places to T10 with play still in progress.

The 34-year-old's season best (and lone top 10) in 25 prior starts is T9 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic (also a par-70 layout). He entered the week at No. 143 in the FedExCup standings and is currently projecting at 133rd. The Texan was one of 18 players to make the cut on the number (T56 on 1-under 139) after rounds of 71-69. He played the weekend in 67-65 to make a steady ascent up the board. Stefani's closing 65 matches a season best (75 rounds), which he's shot five previous times. For the week, he totaled 16 birdies against seven bogeys and is currently T10 in GIR at 79.17 percent (57/72), fifth in SG: Tee-to-Green (8.408), but 67th (of 73) in SG: Putting at 2.451. He did post positive numbers in the latter however, over the final three rounds.
Aug 7 - 3:02 PM

Shawn Stefani stockpiled a six-pack of birdies en route to a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during round one of the Barbasol Championship.

The Texan found his game clicking on all cylinders today, gaining 1.706 strokes tee-to-green and 2.411 strokes putting. He rolled in five putts from outside nine feet, including a 9'7" par-saver at the closing par-4 18th hole. Stefani did not play in the inaugural Barbasol last year, so this is his first career tournament round at Grand National’s Lake Course. At 143rd in the FedExCup standings, Stefani could use a nice finish this week if he wants any chance of repeating last year's Playoff run, making it all the way to the BMW Championship.
Jul 14 - 4:15 PM

First-round co-leader Shawn Stefani crafted a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's weather-delayed final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 6-under 274, up 25 spots on the live leaderboard to T7.

The Texan co-led with two others after an opening 65 but backed up with 71 and 73 to begin the finale on 1-under (T32). He birdied Nos. 3, 8, 9, 11, 12 and 14, the latter the longest from 18'11". The 34-year-old bogeyed the par-5 16th, missing a par-saver from 9'6", and then play was suspended for 3 hours and 3 minutes due to inclement weather. He returned to par the final two holes to match the low round in the clubhouse. This was Stefani's fourth trip to Memphis with a best of T7 on debut in 2013 where he led after 54 holes but closed in 76. His season best in 20 prior starts (and lone top 25) was T25 at the OHL Classic. UPDATE: Play is still ongoing, but Dustin Johnson's 63 has trumped Stefani for low round of the day.

Overnight co-leader Shawn Stefani sleepwalked to a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the St. Jude Classic to post 4-under 136, down five spots on the live leaderboard to T6.

The 34-year-old co-led with two others after an opening 65. It was his third career 18-hole lead/co-lead and second of the season -- OHL Classic -- where he eventually finished T25, a season best so far in 20 starts. Stefani went off No. 10 tee and recorded 12 straight pars before bogey-4 at the fourth after putting his tee ball in the water. He then finished with five straight pars. The Texan mustered just five (of 14) fairways and six GIR, recording 2.000 putts per GIR.

Shawn Stefani blitzed TPC Southwind with a 5-under-par 32-33=65 during the opening round of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic, giving him a piece of the early clubhouse lead with Seung-yul Noh and Tom Hoge.

Stefani put on a ball-striking clinic today, gaining 1.68 strokes off the tee and 3.18 strokes approaching the green. The most notable approach was a 169-yard eagle hole out at the par-4 ninth hole. He nearly outdid himself four holes later where he stiffed his 172-yard approach shot to 10 inches for a tap-in birdie. His flat stick was not dormant, either, as he splashed home a pair of putts from 11-to-14 feet, both for birdie. Stefani finished T7 in his 2013 St. Jude debut, before returning with two finishes outside the top 60. If he can maintain anywhere near the level of ball-striking featured in today's round, he just may find another top 10.
Jun 9 - 7:05 PM

Shawn Stefani twirled a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-32=66 in today's third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 6-under 204.

The Texan logged 30 holes on Saturday, 12 to complete his second round leftover from Friday. Upon his return this morning for the restart, he birdied the par-4 seventh, but doubled the ninth to turn even-par 35 and 1-under total. Ever since, the 34-year-old has played his last 27 holes in blemish-free 6-under, including a four-birdie effort in the third round to bump 10 places to T14 with play still in progress.
May 28 - 4:46 PM

Shawn Stefani has not missed a cut in his career at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, and returns this week for another look at Colonial Country Club.

Stefani is 2-for-2 at the DEAN & DELUCA, recording a T42 in his 2013 debut and returning last year with a T19. His course history will get tested this week as he arrives with just a 7-for-18 record on the season. He's cracked the top 25 just once in those 18 events (T25 at OHL Classic). His dip in form has been across the board, showing a decline in nearly all relevant stats, year-over-year. Playing in his home state this week, perhaps the Houston resident can kick-start his season with a nice week.
May 25 - 5:24 PM

Shawn Stefani looks to break out of his current slump as he readies for a home game at this week's Shell Houston Open.

The Houston resident has three top 40s in four starts here at the Golf Club of Houston. He's cited his offseason work here at the course when he's bolted into contention over the past editions. That includes a fifth-place finish in 2014. Stefani has finished 50th or worse in 11 of his 12 starts this season, but this week's course makes for a very comfortable landing zone for the Lamar University alum.
Mar 29 - 10:29 AM

Shawn Stefani signed for a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-35=67 in the first round of the Northern Trust Open.

Stefani was neck and neck with the field as he split 11 greens in regulation on the day. His tee-to-green game was slightly better than field average, but his putter did most of the damage. Starting his round on the back nine, he rattled in a par-saver from 12'9" on the par-4 12th and then another from 17'7" on the par-3 14th hole. Stefani didn't use all his putts on par-savers, though, as he finished the day with a 13'7" birdie splash on the par-4 ninth.
Feb 18 - 7:34 PM

Shawn Stefani prepares for his ninth start of the season and third visit to the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The 34-year-old finished a career-best 54th in FedExCup points last season but has missed five cuts on eight starts in 2015-16, including his last two and three of his last four. His three cashes read: T62 (Shriners), T25 (OHL) and T50 (Sony Open), collecting an uninspiring 70 FEC points. The Texas native and resident ranks outside the top 150 in just about every statistical category, most notably: 156th in scoring average (72.113) and the all-around (166th). He's 1-for-2 at TPC Scottsdale with a MC/2013 and a T30 last year on rounds of 67-74-69-69.
Feb 3 - 8:03 AM

Shawn Stefani made 21 cuts last season on 26 starts with ten top 25s, three for top 10s, including a solo second at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, his second runner-up finish in 71 career events.

The Texas native and resident went 2-for-5 in the fall portion of the wraparound schedule with one top 25. He co-lead the OHL Classic five weeks ago after a first-round 6-under 65 and was T5 thru 36 holes on 9-under, but played the weekend in even-par 142 (69-73), eventually settling for T25. The 34-year-old, who celebrated his birthday Dec. 2nd, ranks 152nd on TOUR in strokes gained: tee-to-green, 202nd in strokes gained: putting, and 181st in scoring average at 72.409.
