Brian Stuard posted a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and finished two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Stuard began carving out a reputation as an easy-course assassin at TPC Summerlin last year. He extended the strong play into the other desert shootout otherwise known as the Humana Challenge in January. As a result, today's success doesn't come unexpected in that context, but he all but disappeared the remainder of the season, so we're left wondering where he's going to make the most sense week to week. Today's airshow yielded 13 greens in regulation and seven birdies, including a 15-yarder from off the green at the par-4 third hole. Two of his conventional conversions measured 11 feet and 16'3" at Nos. 5 and 6, respectively. Stuard also rolled in a par save from 10'10" at No. 10. Oct 16 - 4:32 PM

Brian Stuard struggled on Friday at last weeks' Open but is preparing for a bounce back at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Stuard was sitting pretty after round one last week, posting a 1-under-par 71. Things took a turn for the worst as he carded three double bogeys, Friday, on his way to a 6-over-par 78 and -5.331 strokes gained: tee-to-green. Gamers should expect a rebound this week as it's early in the season when fields are not so strong and courses are a little easier. Stuard is a strong contrarian play in salary-cap formats.

Brian Stuard crafted a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is the first to post 5-under 208 at the 54-hole mark.

Stuard had the flat stick working at TPC Boston, dropping four of his seven birdies from outside of 11 feet. His 22'1" birdie on the par-4 12th stood above the others. He landed 13 GIR and gained over three strokes with his putter at this time of his posting. The American's round ended with a bit of a stumble, posting his lone bogey at the par-4 17th after splitting the fairway off the tee and settling for a par on the par-5 18th.

Brian Stuard tied for 74th at The Barclays last week and now makes his way to the Deutsche Bank Championship for the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs.

Stuard now sits 64th in the FEC standings, and must do enough heavy lifting at TPC Boston this week to remain inside the top 70 in order to advance to the BMW Championship. He tied for 67th in this event last year, which sends a mixed signal. It's always nice when a player makes a cut at an event the first time he plays it, but it's tough to gauge if he can take the ball and run with it from there.

Brian Stuard answered his opening 66 at the Wyndham Championship with a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in the second round.

He burst out of the gates at Sedgefield today, picking off birdies at Nos. 1 and 2, the latter measuring 44'9" at the par 4. After a two-putt par from 15 feet at the par-3 third, Stuard buried another birdie at the par-4 fourth, this time from 50'9". Moving along to the par-5 fifth, his conversion stretched just under 10 feet, but the putt rolled in for eagle to get him to 5-under on the round. However, he played out the string in even par with two bogeys followed by two birdies on the inward nine. t last check, his strokes gained-putting clip for the day read 2.281. At 9-under 131, he's one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 15 - 12:10 PM

Brian Stuard turned in a 4-under-par 35-31=66 for his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing two stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Given that he arrived with only one payday in his last eight starts, today's success is surprising. Yet, he's a lock to go at least three events deep into the FedExCup Playoffs thanks to a red-hot run bracketing the holiday break. Stuard split 11 (of 14) fairways and found 14 greens in regulation at Sedgefield today. He circled six birdies, including a zero-putt seven-yarder at the par-3 third. His longest conventional conversion measured 17'8" at the par-3 seventh. He'll wake up on Friday attempting to connect red number for the first time since the back half of THE PLAYERS in mid-May.

Brian Stuard is leaking oil as he turns his attention to Sedgefield Country Club for this week's Wyndham Championship.

Stuard enters the week in need of a tune-up before the Playoffs begin. His last eight events have yielded seven missed cuts, with the lone cut made coming at the Barracuda Championship, played alternate of the WGC-Bridgstone. Stuard has lost strokes with the putter in five of his last six measured events, and sported a GIR under 53% in five of his last seven measured. Something is off in his game, and it's safest for gamers to avoid until things turn around.

Brian Stuard returns to the John Deere Classic for his second peek at TPC Deere Run.

Stuard enters the week ranked 38th in the FedExCup standings, but lacks a cut made in his last five tries. In 75 career PGA TOUR starts, he's never missed six cuts in a row. With an easy course ahead of him, versus a relatively weak field, this is the perfect opportunity for Stuard to bounce back.
Jul 9 - 10:34 AM

Brian Stuard completed the 36-hole U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Springfield (Ohio) Country Club in bogey-free, 11-under-par 64-65=129 to earn a return trip to the U.S. Open.

Stuard will be seeking revenge after missing the cut in his debut last year. He sunk 11 birdies to finish six strokes clear of Ohio State University freshman-to-be Will Grimmer (5-under 70-65=135). The 16-year-old made news last year when he spun a 59 in the second round of the North & South Junior Amateur at Pinehurst No. 1. He'll be making his PGA TOUR debut at Pinehurst No. 2 next week. Chris Thompson gobbled the final of three berths into the major at 4-under 66-70=136. Notables that fell short today include: 139--Nathan Green; Scott Gutschewski ... 140--Billy Mayfair ... 141--Tony Finau ... 142--Blayne Barber ... 144--Ryan Armour.
Jun 2 - 6:31 PM

Brian Stuard spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

Stuard missed the cut in his debut here a year ago, but he's flashed dynamite form time and again in 2013-14. It was on display again today as he racked up 10 (of 14) fairways hit and 14 greens in regulation. Birdies of notable length measured 20'7" at the 12th hole and 39'9" at 18, and he also rolled in a zero-putt four-yarder at 13, but arguably his most impressive shot came at the long, par-3 eighth. He smacked his tee ball 234 yards to just 13 inches for the kick-in 2. Stuard's closest brush with bogey occurred at the par-4 sixth where he had to punch out of trouble after a wayward tee ball, but he'd eventually pour in the par save from 11'2".
May 8 - 12:24 PM

Brian Stuard fashioned a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the RBC Heritage.

Stuard attacked out of the gates, with birdies on four of the first six holes, but fizzled down the stretch. He converted twice from outside 17 feet but also missed an easy 3'2" par putt on the par-3 17th hole. His four-round total of 7-under 277 is good for a T5 finish, his third top five of the season.
Apr 20 - 5:45 PM

Brian Stuard fired a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the RBC Heritage to claim the clubhouse lead at 4-under 209.

Stuard's five birdies at Harbour Town Golf Links more than made up for his two bogeys. The putter was working, as all but one of his birdies fell from outside of nine feet. His highlight came at the par-4 11th, where he holed a bunker shot for his fourth birdie of the afternoon. He entered the week 24th in the FedExCup standings, but his current form was a question. He hadn't finished any better than a T24 at The Honda Classic since his solo fifth at the Humana Challenge in January. He will try and break through for his first PGA TOUR win on Sunday.
Apr 19 - 5:37 PM

Brian Stuard posted a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, finishing three strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

After bracketing the holiday break with a trio of top-six finishes, Stuard has been largely quiet. His only top 25 in his previous eight starts was a T24 at The Honda Classic. Today's red number is just his second in last eight lid-lifters. He went 6-for-7 in scrambling and converted three birdies, the longest from 12'2" at the par-3 17th hole. After 24th in the FedExCup standings, he's poised for a deep run in the Playoffs where he stalled out in the second leg last season.
Apr 17 - 4:49 PM

Brian Stuard makes his way back to the Shell Houston Open.

This will be Stuard's third attempt at the Golf Club of Houston, with one missed cut and one MDF listed on his CV. Stuard is having a career year, already surpassing his total money earned in 2013, but has cooled considerably since January. His lack of course history and recent form makes it easy to avoid him this week, but his name will resurface to gamers soon enough.
Apr 2 - 11:47 AM

Overnight leader Brian Stuard settled for a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach the halfway point in 7-under 137, five strokes off James Driscoll's 36-hole lead.

Stuard found all 14 fairways today but only 12 greens in regulation. The imprecision with his irons yielded three bogeys to wipe away the benefit of four birdies. Golf tournament are marathons, not sprints, but he now has to find some of that form that he flashed on Thursday if he's going to break through for victory on the PGA TOUR.
