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.
Apr 3 - 12:51 PM

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.
Jan 24 - 7:11 PM

Shawn Stefani posted a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Sony Open to finish inside the top 10 at 12-under 268.

Stefani looked the part of a contender early in the round, circling birdies on each of Waialae Country Club's first three holes including a 14'9" effort on the par-4 third. Unfortunately for him, that would be it for the circles on the card. His lone bogey would fall on the par-4 fifth hole and he would settle for pars on the remaining 13. After finishing alone in second in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in his last start, he managed to back that up with a top-10 finish in this event.
Jan 18 - 7:57 PM

Shawn Stefani conjured up a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Sony Open to complete 54 holes at Waialae Country Club in 10-under 200.

Stefani picked up three birdies to just one bogey on his outward nine at Waialae before turning his attention to the back. He added four more birdies, including a 17-footer on the par-4 15th, and one bogey on his return to the clubhouse. It will likely take a hot round in the finale if he is to pick up his first PGA TOUR win, but his second consecutive top-10 finish is very much in the cards. He was the runner-up in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in his last start.
Jan 17 - 8:39 PM

Shawn Stefani finished alone in second place in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and essentially locked up his 2015-16 PGA TOUR card in the process.

He ranks seventh in the FedExCup standings after making four of his five cuts to start the 2014-15 campaign. Stefani is in his third season on the PGA TOUR, and has been a steady riser. He managed to complete his rookie season of 2013 ranked 135th in the FedExCup standings, and then improved to 83rd last season. While he flies under the radar for many, he is a solid investment for a savvy gamer.

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.

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.

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.
