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. Mar 18 - 5:08 PM

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.

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.

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.

Brian Stuard chased his opening 67 at the CIMB Classic with an even-par 35-37=72 in today's second round to post 5-under 139 at the midpoint.

Stuard went off in the first threesome off the first tee at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club today. He'd trade three birdies with three bogeys to slide down the leaderboard, coming to rest five strokes adrift of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. He's played the quartet of par 5s thus far in even with one birdie, six pars and one bogey.

Brian Stuard carded a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the CIMB Classic, finishing two strokes off the overnight lead.

Stuard is still a bit of a mystery to gamers, but he's been known to play well on easy tracks. Before that comes across as an obvious statement, consider how many better golfers don't. In Kuala Lumpur today, he buried seven birdies to help offset two bogeys. The Michigan native arrived having started the season with three missed cuts despite signing for under-par rounds in each of the lid-lifters. That drought is guaranteed to end this week with no cut, but he still needs to prove that Friday is his friend, too. So far, he's shot 78, 75 and 74, respectively in the second round this season.

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.

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.

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.
