Brian Stuard completed two rounds of the Wyndham Championship in 2-over-par 68-74=142, missing the cut by five strokes.
Well, if he fails to finish inside the top 125 in the FedExCup standings, at least he didn't come close in his final effort to qualify for the Playoffs. Stuard alternated top 25s with MCs in his last eight starts, climbing inside and falling outside the bubble throughout. At the midpoint in Greensboro, North Carolina, he's projected to fall seven spots to 126th in points. Nicholas Thompson, who also missed the cut, is the only other set to lose footing inside the bubble as of tonight. Other notables who failed to cash include: 138--Hideki Matsuyama; Russell Knox; Billy Horschel; Brian Harman; Nick Taylor; Ollie Schniederjans ... 139--Alex Cejka; Brendon de Jonge; Boo Weekley ... 140--2010 champ Arjun Atwal; J.J. Henry ... 141--Brendon Todd ... 144--Daniel Berger. Aug 21 - 7:57 PM

Brian Stuard preps for his fourth look at Montrêux Golf and Country Club at this week's Barracuda Championship.

Stuard arrives in Reno ranked 126th in the FedExCup race. He's done a fair amount of his damage recently, collecting three top 25s in his last six starts. Historically, Stuard has collected four top 10s in each of the past two seasons, but only has one thus far in 2014-15. Perhaps he is due for a second, but gamers should not target him as their top option this week.

Brian Stuard answered his opening 66 at the John Deere Classic with a 3-under-par 37-31=68 to post 8-under 134, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Someone was going to have to hang a number today, so it makes sense that it's a guy who went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at TPC Deere Run. Stuard hit 14 greens in regulation again today, but found three fewer birdies than Thursday's eight. His longest today rolled 17'8" at the par-3 12th hole. He also swallowed a pair of bogeys before the turn. The 32-year-old will enter the weekend within reach of his first PGA TOUR title in this his 108th start.

Brian Stuard hung up a 5-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of the John Deere Classic, stopping short three swings back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

He has a top 10 and another three top 25s among 14 paydays, but still sits just 131st in the FedExCup standings. So, if you're going to lay a bet on a current bubble boy to sneak in, Stuard would be on your short list. He hit 14 greens in regulation at TPC Deere Run today and connected for eight birdies. Of those, five disappeared from outside 13 feet, three of which from longer than 21 feet. His highlight ran 35'4" at the par-4 ninth hole and he ranked fourth in strokes gained: putting (3.056) at last check. Stuard also squared one bogey and a double, but he didn't shoot himself out of this race yet.
Jul 9 - 6:28 PM

Brian Stuard didn't waste his opening 64 at the Travelers Championship by adding a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in today's second round.

He totaled 13 greens in regulation today but shot birdie-free 1-over going out. It wasn't until he connected for birdie from just inside 18 feet at the par-4 10th that the lid came off the hole. Stuard circled four more, including a roll from 10'2" at the par-4 12th, but he closed bogey-par, the latter a round-long conversion from 18'8" at the par-4 finisher. At 9-under 131, the 32-year-old sits two strokes back of Bubba Watson's overnight lead. Stuard is still after his first PGA TOUR title in this his 106th start.

Brian Stuard spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 in today's opening round of the Travelers Championship for a slice of the clubhouse lead with Seung-Yul Noh and Keegan Bradley.

Stuard flies under the radar most of the time, but he's collected 13 paydays this season. Still, he's just 135th in the FedExCup standings. Today, he went 5-for-5 in scrambling and poured in six birdies, five from outside 10 feet. The set included conversions from 30'3" and 33 feet at the first and fifth holes, respectively. He signed his card leading the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip north of 3.400. This is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since a career-low 62 at Nicklaus Private in the third round of the 2013 Humana Challenge.

Brian Stuard opened the 40th edition of the Memorial with a 4-under-par 35-33=68 to set the early target.

Stuard went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Muirfield Village Golf Club and wrangled an eagle and four birdies against two bogeys. Three of his birdies found the cup from outside 10 feet, the longest stretching 26'1" at the par-3 16th. Overall, he missed only two (of 14) fairways and two greens in regulation. The 32-year-old is in his 22nd start of the season, but you wouldn't know it. He arrived in Ohio having finished outside the top 35 in 11 consecutive starts and sits 129th in the FedExCup standings.

Brian Stuard will be making his third-career appearance at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Stuard is 1-for-2 at Colonial CC sporting a T22 in his 2013 debut and posting a 2-over-par (71-71) to miss the cut in last year's edition by one stroke. The 32-year-old has cashed ten times in 19 events this season with three top 25s, the last being a T21 at the AT&T Pebble Beach. In his last nine starts since Pebble he's missed four cuts and cracked the top 40 only twice, including his T38 at last week's Wells Fargo Championship.
May 20 - 8:43 AM

Brian Stuard turns his attention to TPC Louisiana and enters the week ranked 124th in FedExCup points.

The 2015 edition of the Zurich Classic marks Stuard's third attempt at making the weekend in NOLA with missed cuts in 2013 and 2010. On the season he's 8-for-16 with one top 10 (T10, WMPO). The 32-year-old is a cumulative 19-over-par in his last five starts but there's been a small positive trend (okay, very small) going MC-T64-T55 in his last three events, but progress is progress.
Apr 22 - 7:08 PM

Brian Stuard returns to Bay Hill Club and Lodge for his fourth edition of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

His record here is steady, making each of his two cuts following a miss in his first event. The highlight was his T16 in 2013, and he followed that with a T60 a year ago. Stuard ranks 103rd in the FedExCup standings, so he still has plenty of work left to do if he is to guarantee his spot in the FEC Playoffs later this season. Perhaps he will chip away at that gap this week in Orlando.

Brian Stuard conjured up a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Stuard took on Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course on Saturday. He circled just one birdie on the front nine, but picked up four more on his return to the clubhouse. He finds himself 12-under 203 for the tournament and six off the lead with 18 to play.
Feb 14 - 6:47 PM

Brian Stuard spun a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

A late bogey by Zach Johnson allowed him to sneak out of TPC Scottsdale with a top 10 at 10-under 274. Stuard traded a birdie for a bogey on the front nine, to go with seven pars, while circling four birdies without a blemish on the back. Of his five birdies, two fell from between 13 and 15 feet. This bests his T13 in the CIMB Classic as his best finish of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.
Feb 1 - 5:46 PM

Brian Stuard closed out the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Saturday morning with a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-35=68, and the third round is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. MT.

Any lingering showers are expected to move out from around TPC Scottsdale during the morning hours on Saturday, so the weather for the third round should be much better than it was on Friday. The final group of Martin Laird, Daniel Berger and Justin Thomas will begin play at 11:00 a.m. Stuard's second round featured three birdies and 15 pars. Two of his birdies were hole outs, coming at the par-4 fifth and par-4 eighth holes. Stuard is in the first group off the 10th tee in the third round at 9:00 a.m. He is playing with Lucas Glover and Russell Knox.

Brian Stuard makes his way back to the Sony Open in Hawaii for his fourth crack at Waialae Country Club.

Stuard is building a strong resume at Waialae CC that includes top 25s in each of his first three visits. He's accomplished this feat thanks to nine of his 12 rounds being recorded at 68 or better. Stuard has been a major letdown to gamers this year as he goes through a case of the second-round blues. If he can put together his first sub-70 Friday round of the season, this could be a special week as he looks for his maiden PGA TOUR win.
Jan 12 - 10:15 PM

Brian Stuard entered the holiday break on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR ranked 114th in the FedExCup standings.

He certainly gave himself plenty of opportunities to be a little higher in the pecking order, teeing it up five times. He missed his first three cuts of the season before tying for 13th at the CIMB Classic and sharing 71st in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. The bigger problem for Stuard is that he's normally done some very heavy lifting at Mayakoba. In his two previous trips, he earned a T2 in 2010 and a solo second last season. He now must make up some additional ground somewhere else on his schedule.
