Shawn Stefani opened the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 2-under-par 36-33=69 to establish the very early clubhouse lead.
Stefani went out in the first threesome off the first tee at TPC Boston today. He hit 15 greens in regulation and circled three birdies. The longest among the pair of conventional conversions measured 27'3" at the par-4 sixth, but the highlight came in the form of a hole-out from a bunker 11 yards away at the par-4 13th. His only bogey occurred at the par-5 seventh where he failed to find the GIR. Stefani arrived slotted 67th in the FedExCup standings. Aug 29 - 1:02 PM

Shawn Stefani enters the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings.

Stefani is a first-timer in the FedExCup Playoffs and tied for 30th in The Barclays last week. Considering he entered the Playoffs in the 83rd spot, he's poised to make a deep run with a solid result at TPC Boston. He sits 38th in the all-around ranking, so his game seems adaptable to many different types of layouts. Perhaps TPC Boston will be a friendly venue.

Shawn Stefani arrived at the midpoint of the Wyndham Championship in 6-under-par 67-67=134 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Stefani has served as a model of patience and execution this season. En route to his current position at 82nd in the FedExCup standings, he's made news often enough to warrant consideration as a strong weekly investment on top of growing value in the long-term. Thus far at Sedgefield, he's hit 13 greens in regulation during both walks. After six birdies against three bogeys on Thursday, Stefani offset a lone bogey at the par-4 first with four birdies, the longest measuring 20'10'" at the par-3 third hole. He walked off with a par conversion from 10'4" at the par-4 ninth.

Shawn Stefani authored a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the 96th PGA Championship.

He wasn't in the field until David Toms withdrew on Tuesday, but Stefani made the absolute most of it in what was his first round in the season's final major. He went 3-for-13 in birdie chances, the highlight finding its target from 28'8" at the par-4 17th hole. He signed his card situated three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Shawn Stefani has been added to the field of 156 at this week's PGA Championship.

He gained entry when David Toms withdrew. Stefani took the last two weeks off following a missed cut at The Open Championship, but he's pieced together a fine season despite only 13 starts. Frankly, everything he's given has been a bonus given that he started the season with only two starts on a Minor Medical Extension. Currently leading the PGA TOUR in total driving. NOTE: John Huh is now first alternate.

Shawn Stefani spun a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National, but lost to Justin Rose in a playoff at 4-under 280.

Stefani was looking to become the latest first-time winner on the PGA TOUR, but a messy double bogey on the first hole of a playoff prevented that. He started his day hot, with three birdies outpacing a pair of bogeys over his first eight holes. He then played the final 10 like a U.S. Open, alternating a birdie from 14'5" on the par-5 16th with a bogey at the par-4 17th. Needing a birdie on 18 to win or a par to force additional action, he split the fairway and found the green before securing the two-putt par. While a career-best finish is reason to celebrate, the immediate takeaway is that, as one of the top four finishers inside the top 12 and ties not otherwise exempt into The Open Championship, he's now exempt into the season's third major. Joining him are Charley Hoffman (T3), Ben Martin (T3) and Brendan Steele (T5). (Andres Romero also tied for fifth, but loses the tiebreaker due to the Official World Golf Ranking. Steele is 120th; Romero is 194th.)
Jun 29 - 6:18 PM

Shawn Stefani made a third-round move up the leaderboard in the Quicken Loans National with a 3-under-par 36-32=68.

A birdie on the opening hole was erased by a bogey at the par-5 ninth hole, but Stefani caught fire on the back nine. He rolled in a 23'1" birdie on the par-4 14th, and then ended his round with back-to-back birdies. He was very average across the board statistically, but didn't have any big struggles. His 3-under 211 should place him safely inside the top 10 entering the final round.
Jun 28 - 4:03 PM

Shawn Stefani held the 54-hole lead at the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic and returns to try and correct the finish this week.

Stefani settled for a tie for seventh at TPC Southwind last year after closing with a 6-over-par 76. He tied for 11th at the HP Byron Nelson Championship in his last start, so consider this to be a case of converging trends. Though he's made just seven starts this season due to a Minor Medical Extension that he satisfied, he has already risen to 146th in the FedExCup standings.

Shawn Stefani followed his opening 69 at the Wells Fargo Championship with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round to post 7-under 137, coming to rest just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Stefani hit 14 greens in regulation at Quail Hollow today and buried six birdies. The highlight of the bunch certainly qualified. It occurred at the par-4 fourth where he converted his try right to left from 51'5". He's now 3-for-3 since fulfilling the terms of his Minor Medical Extension in Houston with a solo fifth, but he's yet to add a top 50.
May 2 - 5:32 PM

Shawn Stefani opened the Wells Fargo Championship with a 3-under-par 35-34=69, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Overnight rain helped keep the turf damp at Quail Hollow this morning when scores are expected to average lower than today's late draw. That remains to be seen, but Stefani doesn't need to worry about that. After a bogey-5 at the first hole where he began his round in the second threesome, he played out the string in bogey-free 4-under with four birdies. His longest conversion measured 11'3" for birdie at the par-4 eighth. He also rattled in a par save from 11'1" at the newly designed, par-4 16th after missing the green short.
May 1 - 12:09 PM

Shawn Stefani met the terms of his Minor Medical Extension with a fifth-place finish at the Shell Houston Open and will now play out of the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season.

He needed to finish no worse than solo 35th, but ran through the tape with what is a career-best result in 25 PGA TOUR starts. Stefani was nails at the Golf Club of Houston, finishing fourth in greens in regulation, third in strokes gained-putting and first in the all-around. He also placed third in par breakers (21, including a field-high two eagles) and first in par-5 scoring (4.19). By banking $256,000.00 and 110 FedExCup points, he clear his objectives by $171,916 and 74 FedExCup points. It's his first payday in two starts this season and leaves him 161st in the FedExCup standings.
Apr 6 - 5:36 PM

Shawn Stefani had a wild ride around Golf Club of Houston in his third-round 1-over-par 38-35=73, and enters the finale at 7-under 209.

It started out harmlessly enough, with pars on his first four holes, but then things got crazy. He swallowed back-to-back double bogeys on the fifth and sixth holes, and did so without even losing a golf ball. After he settled down with a bogey at the seventh, he stole a 63'6" eagle at the par-5 eighth before ending his front nine with a birdie at nine. He answered a bogey at 10 with a 33'1" eagle at the par-5 15th, and then traded a bogey at 17 for a closing birdie at the par-4 18th. He needs to finish no worse than solo 35th in the final round to satisfy the terms of his Minor Medical Extension. For his sake, hopefully things are a little calmer in the finale.
Apr 5 - 4:13 PM

Shawn Stefani fashioned a 3-under-par 37-32=69 for his second round of the Shell Houston Open to post 8-under 136 at the midpoint, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Step two -- check. He's made the cut and can now focus on just keeping his foot on the pedal en route to fully exempt status via a Minor Medical Extension. Stefani went 0-for-3 in scrambling today, but he converted six birdies, including a gem from 60'5" at the par-5 eighth hole. He also rolled in birdies from 18'4" and 19'8" at Nos. 11 and 18, respectively.
Apr 4 - 4:01 PM

Shawn Stefani turned in a 5-under-par 33-34=67 for his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

The local is making his final start via a Minor Medical Extension. To fulfill its terms, he needed to finish no worse than solo 35th. Of course, to achieve that, the first objective is to make the cut. Nothing is certain until then, but he's in terrific position, obviously. Stefani hit 16 greens and was perfect on 16 attempts inside 11 feet. He added conversions from 17'11" at the fourth hole and 14'4" at 6 for what were his first two of six birdies on the day. Should he achieve his goal at the conclusion of the tournament, he will be promoted to the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season. We would then see him regularly in all of the open events on top of any others for which he qualifies.
Apr 3 - 8:11 PM

Shawn Stefani is listed in the published field of next week's Shell Houston Open.

Stefani is in on a sponsor exemption. If he doesn't withdraw prior to his tee time in the opening round, it will mark his last start on a Minor Medical Extension. To earn a promotion to the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season, he needs to finish no worse than solo 35th. That would grant him exactly the 36 FedExCup points he needs to achieve the goal. (From the earnings angle, he needs to bank $86,400. That would require no worse than a two-way T19 worth $86,400, so it's irrelevant.) Stefani is 0-for-1 on the season, missing the cut at the Farmers in January.
