Shawn Stefani authored a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the John Deere Classic for a 54-hole tally of 14-under 199, three shots back of the 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.
Stefani began the day at 7-under (T16) and five shots adrift. On his round, he peppered 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to a nine-birdie loop of TPC Deere Run. Stefani's split featured a gaudy, seven circles on the card from inside 10 feet, and was highlighted by a 21'3" birdie roll on the par-4 13th for his longest conversion of the day. The 33-year-old squared his two bogeys at the par-4 ninth and the par-4 15th respectively, the latter missing from three feet for the par. Stefani's 64 (tied for third lowest round of the day) matches a personal-best that he shot in the third round of last year's JDC, where he would eventually finish T13, closing in 5-under 66.

Shawn Stefani settled for a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of the John Deere Classic.

Stefani is fortunate to land a score under par after hitting just 10 greens in regulation at TPC Deere Run today. He salvaged par on the other eight holes six times (and squared two bogeys), but added a three-putt bogey from outside 85 feet at the par-4 14th hole. His lone highlight is easy to spot and it set the stage for the red number. After striping the fairway at the par-5 17th, and standing 265 yards away, he flushed his second to 12 inches for the tap-in eagle. At 7-under 135, Stefani is three shots back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Jul 10 - 1:12 PM

Shawn Stefani posted 6-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic, finishing two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Short of a really low one, contenders at TPC Deere Run need to think mid-60s every day, so Stefani is where he wants to be after 18 holes. Going off the back side, he opened par-bogey before finding his balance and playing the remainder in bogey-free 7-under with seven birdies. The set featured three conversions ranging 12-18 feet. He arrived slotted 29th in the FedExCup standings with three top 10s and another seven top 25s this season. Suffice it to say that the 33-year-old has rapidly risen into a reliable investment time and again.

Shawn Stefani makes his way back to The Old White TPC for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Stefani arrives in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, ranked 31st in the FedExCup race. He already has nine top 25s stockpiled on the season, in 19 starts. The Lamar University alum is 2-for-2 at this track, with last year's T35 the better of the pair. Gamers should take a look at Stefani this week if they need a reliable cut-maker that will likely hang around all weekend.

Shawn Stefani arrived at the halfway point of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial in 4-under 67-69=136, four swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Aside from a missed cut at TPC Sawgrass where he opened with 77, Stefani has been locked in. He's 26th in the FedExCup standings with three top 10s and another five top 25s. All 10 of his birdies at Colonial thus far have occurred on par 4s, a stat that usually yields success in any tournament. He's also squared six bogeys, the averted another at the par-5 11th hole today where he connected for par from 12'1". All three of today's birdies ran longer than 14 feet, the highlight stretching 37'8" at the par-4 10th.
May 22 - 2:14 PM

Shawn Stefani turned in a 3-under-par 35-34=69 after today's final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 10-under 278, good for a four-way tie for ninth.

Stefani found the short grass seven (of 14) times and painted 15 greens in regulation en route to his five-birdie-against-two-bogey jaunt at Quail Hollow Club. The 33-year-old opened his round with six consecutive two-putt greens (all for pars). He two-putted the seventh as well but fortunately he had reached the par-5 in two, so this went for his first birdie, eventually making the turn with 17 putts on the card. Alas, his flat stick awoke with birdie rolls on Nos. 10, 11 and 15, sandwiching in a 19'7" conversion on the 13th, his longest on the day. Stefani's T9 is his best finish in three appearances at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Shawn Stefani submitted a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

He split only half of the 14 fairways and mounted just 11 opportunities to score, but Stefani picked off six birdies at Quail Hollow today. The only par breaker of any length stretched six yards from the fringe at the par-4 third hole. He also squared three bogeys, but parked it just four strokes off the clubhouse lead. At last check, Stefani led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 3.625.
May 14 - 1:52 PM

Shawn Stefani missed the cut in his 2014 PLAYERS debut but returns this week for another look at TPC Sawgrass.

Stefani can be given a hall pass for missing the cut during his first walk around TPC Sawgrass, a venue known for being unkind to newcomers. This year, he arrives in great form having posted top 30s in each of his past four starts. Stefani has a balanced game and can pepper the greens with the best of them. It's been over a month since we've last seen him tee it up, but he should not go unnoticed this week.
May 6 - 9:17 AM

Shawn Stefani signed for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 after his third round of the Shell Houston Open to post 12-under 204 and sit two shots off the lead heading into Sunday's final round.

The 33-year-old Texan split nine (of 14) fairways but could find only 12 greens in regulation. His short game was up to the task, though, going 6-for-8 in scrambles. Stefani converted birdies on Nos. 1, 4 and 8, the longest dropping from 20'6" on the par-4 first, but he gave back strokes with bogeys on the fifth and seventh holes. He did add birdies on the par-4 11th and 12th holes but also failed to convert from inside 15 feet on 10, 13 and 15. The latter two are par fives. Overall, he has to be pleased with his position after logging a third consecutive sub-70.
Apr 4 - 8:18 PM

Shawn Stefani chased his opening 66 at the Shell Houston Open with a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round to post 9-under 135 at the break, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The local resident went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee today and split six (of 15) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation. He converted four times for birdies, including a roll from 15'10" at the par-3 14th hole. Stefani's only mistake was a bogey-5 at the second hole where he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker. While we're only halfway into the tournament with harder hole locations expected on the weekend, it's reassuring that he's fulfilling his expectations in this event.

Shawn Stefani tossed up a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Stefani lives in Baytown, Texas (southeast of Humble), so this is a home game for the 33-year-old. The Golf Club of Houston provided the springboard to his last 12 months on TOUR -- he finished solo fifth on the last start of a medical extension in 2014 -- so it would have been a surprise if he didn't hit the ground running today. He went out in the first threesome off the first hole in today's late draw and promptly proved that the freshened winds of the afternoon were no big deal. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation, picking off six birdies along the way. The set featured conventional conversions from 20 feet and 12'8" at Nos. 9 and 13, respectively, but he also holed out for birdie from off the green nine yards away at the par-3 16th. His greatest challenge to save par was true from 10'11" at the par-4 second.
Apr 2 - 5:41 PM

Shawn Stefani fashioned a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship and came to rest two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Seems that Copperhead has been a well for discovery of form today. Stefani is among the throng near the top of the leaderboard that capitalized on benign conditions to regain it and some confidence. He piped 10 (of 13) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation. While he saved par just twice and squared two bogeys, Stefani rattled in five birdies, including conversions from 11-and-a-half feet at the par-5 11th hole and 41'11" at the par-3 15th. This is his first red number since a closing 69 at TPC Scottsdale on Feb. 1.
Mar 12 - 2:59 PM

Shawn Stefani will check out PGA National's Champion Course for the first time in The Honda Classic later this week.

Stefani is 15th in the FedExCup standings and has made his last seven PGA TOUR cuts in succession. Judging by that alone, he should be a candidate to at least make the cut. He tied for 56th in last week's Northern Trust Open, so expectations should be somewhat tempered.
Feb 23 - 8:29 PM

Shawn Stefani settled for a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Stefani was 6-under through 16 holes, but tried to drive the green at the short par-4 17th and ended up in the water to the left of the green. He eventually squared a double bogey. His round featured seven birdies to go with one bogey and the aforementioned double. Among the highlights were a 28'1" birdie on the opening hole at TPC Scottsdale, a 10'1" birdie on the par-4 eighth hole and a 24'5" birdie on the par-4 11th. He missed just one GIR on the round, so ball striking was an obvious key to his scoring.
Jan 29 - 2:19 PM

Shawn Stefani torched PGA West's Nicklaus Private for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 in his third round of the Humana Challenge.

If not for an opening 75 at Palmer Private at PGA West, Stefani might be in the mix for his first PGA TOUR title this week. His 6-under 66 at La Quinta Country Club on Friday included a hole-in-one on the par-3 third hole, his 12th of the round. Today, he piped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 17 greens in regulation en route to an eagle (at the par-5 16th) and seven birdies. The 63 goes in the books as his career low on TOUR; this is his 47th start. At 12-under 204, Stefani is in a 10-way tie for 24th place five strokes off the pace of the overnight quad-leaders.
