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. Jun 12 - 5:31 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Opening-round co-leader added a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to touch 9-under 133 at the midpoint, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

While Stefani squared a double bogey at the par-4 14th hole, he really can't complain about his score. Rather, he'll blame his irons for yielding the lead. He hit only 11 greens in regulation and suffered the one setback. But he dropped five birdies prior to it. Perhaps he'll find a silver lining in that this is the first time since the Quicken Loans National (in the second and third rounds on July 31 an Aug. 1) that he's connected sub-70s.

Shawn Stefani joined the co-leaders at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 6-under-par 29-36=65 in his opening round.

Stefani has been in a slump, but he was the runner-up at El Camaleón last year, so course history trumped form for one day. He opened birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle on the back side. With two more birdies, he was soaring above the field until walking off with a bogey-5 at No. 9. Indeed, his finisher was the only hole on which he didn't hit the green in regulation.

Shawn Stefani returns for his second consecutive appearance in the Sanderson Farms Championship at the Country Club of Jackson.

At No. 124 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Stefani is the eighth, highest-ranked player in the opposite-field Sanderson Farms this week. He finished 54th last season in FedExCup points with 10 top 25s on 26 starts, including a season-best runner-up finish at the opposite-field OHL Classic at Mayakoba. It matched a career-best P2 at the 2014 AT&T National. The 33-year-old qualified for the Playoffs for a second consecutive season, eventually exiting after posting T39-T65-59. In his first two events in 2015-16, he's posted a MC (Frys.com Open) and T62 at the Shriners. Stefani went T25 at last year's SFC at the CC of Jackson on rounds of 70-68-73-71.

Shawn Stefani steps on the grounds of Conway Farms Golf Club for this week's BMW Championship, ranked 45th in the FedExCup standings.

Stefani has remained consistent all year, missing just five cuts in 25 starts. He won't have to worry about securing a weekend tee time at this week's no-cut BMW. The Lamar University product currently ranks 12th in the all-around ranking. Stefani remains a low-cost value option across most DFS sites.

Shawn Stefani turns his attention to Whistling Straits for this week's PGA Championship.

The Texas native readies for his fifth career start in a major, still searching for his first top 50. He finished 68th at Valhalla Golf Club last year. Stefani has taken a step up this season, collecting top 25s in 10 of his 22 starts. Gamers should look for his remarkable season form to continue, but keep their expectations in check due to his lack of previous success at major championships.

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.
