With preferred lies in effect, World No. 219 Brian Stuard enjoyed a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 11-under 273, up 19 places to T10 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Stuard finished T9.
This was the 34-year-old's fifth cash in five visits, third top 25 and possibly a third top 10, joining runner-up finishes in 2010 and 2014. It's his second top 25 of the season in four starts and a potential second top 10, joining T4 at the Sanderson Farms two weeks and two starts ago. After opening 69-70-69, the Michigan native began T29 on 5-under, four shy of the overnight top 10. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, circling six at holes 1, 5, 7, 10, 13 and 17. The Fort Worth, Texas, resident posted 1.571 putts per GIR with 26 total putts.

World No. 244 Brian Stuard fashioned a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to reach 10-under 278, up four spots to T4, nine back of overnight leader and champion Ryan Armour (68).

This is the 34-year-old's best finish in his third appearance, brushing aside a T39 on last visit in 2016. It's his 12th career top 10 in 166 career starts, first since his lone TOUR title at the 2016 Zurich Classic, reduced to 54 holes and surviving a 3-man playoff. Stuard's win came 78 weeks and 46 starts ago. After kicking off in 67-70-71, the Texas resident began in solo 8th on 8-under, seven back. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.338 strokes tee-to-green. The Michigan native squared two bogeys at Nos. 5 and 17, offset by four circles at 1, 4, 9 and 10, two from between 12 and 16 feet. He posted 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.006 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 244 Brian Stuard tacked on a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the weather-suspended second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to post 7-under 137, up one place to T5, three shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Ryan Armour.

The 34-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.793 strokes off-the-tee and 0.073 tee-to-green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 16 and 8, offset by four circles at 12-14 and 5. The Jackson, Michigan, native posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.689 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. His split featured three conversions from between 10 and 27 feet.

Brian Stuard smoothed a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the Sanderson Farms Championship, placing him inside the early top 10 on the live leaderboard as the afternoon wave gets started.

Stuard made this round look as ho-hum as possible. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation. He missed a few reasonable looks from inside 16 feet, including a 3'11" birdie miss at the 11th. He made up for those misses with notable birdies from 19'3" and 34'5" at the 9th and 12th, respectively. Stuard saved the best for last, though, as he stiffed his 221-yard approach at the closing par-4 18th to inside one foot for a walk-off, tap-in birdie. Stuard arrived without a top 50 in his last 10 starts, but a return to the South appears to have set him straight. His lone PGA TOUR win came in neighboring Louisiana at the 2016 weather-shortened Zurich Classic.

World No. 174 Brian Stuard returns for his second Barbasol Championship and arrives at 129th in the FedExCup standings.

The 34-year-old is making his 161st career start on TOUR and won his lone title a couple of states over at the weather-shortened Zurich Classic (54 holes). He's fully exempt thru next season from that win, but certainly wants to qualify for the FEC Playoffs for a fourth time, which would be his second consecutive. The Fort Worth, Texas, resident is 16-for-27 on the season with four 25s (three individually) but no top 10s, checking in off a T82/MDF at the FedEx St. Jude and three straight missed cuts. He missed the cut in the inaugural Barbasol in 2015 (70-73), and didn't play last year.

Due to expected inclement weather, Sunday's final-round tee times at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans will be between 6:40 and 8:16 AM (CT) with foursomes off both sets of tees.

The format for Sunday's finale is four-ball (best ball). Defending champ Brian Stuard and teammate Chris Stroud will play out of the third-to-last grouping off No. 1 tee and will begin in solo 5th on 13-under 203, six in arrears to 54-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith. Stuard/Stroud chased an opening 68 (alternate shot) with 64 (best ball), and carved out a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in Round 3 (alternate shot). They squared a lone bogey-4 at 14 (failed scramble), offset by birdies at holes 7 and 16, both from between seven and eight feet, and both knocked home by Stroud. Clutch par saves by both occurred throughout the round with each taking turns brushing in matching 11'11" par-savers at the 17th and 18th.

Defending champ Brian Stuard and playing partner Chris Stroud smoothed a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during the opening round at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, placing them two strokes off the early pacesetters.

The duo of short-game magicians lived up to their reputations as they gave themselves just six birdie looks from inside 20 feet, but still managed to walk off TPC Louisiana with just two bogeys. That includes one at the closing, par-3 ninth hole where they rinsed the tee ball but then sank a 19'2" par saver. Scrambling at this venue is nothing new for Stuard who notably went 20-for-20 getting up-and-down last year en route to his weather-shortened victory. While great short game is key for keeping a round together, they will need to unlock their best ball-striking tomorrow as they move to the four-ball format.

Brian Stuard makes his fifth appearance at Bay Hill Club and Lodge as he readies for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Michigan native has opened the new season with a 9-for-14 record that includes a pair of top 25s. Those finishes have him positioned at 95th in the FedExCup race. AT the moment, he ranks 1st on TOUR in driving accuracy, hitting 74.28 percent of fairways thus far. The putter has been surprisingly cold this season, but Stuard also holds the potential of getting hot with the flat stick. In four previous trips to Bay Hill, the highlight was a T16 in 2013, with the other three going for T60 or worse. The 34-year-old is not on the short list for most gamers this week.

World No. 152 Brian Stuard enjoyed a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of The Honda Classic to reach 6-under 204, up 10 places to T7 with play still in progress.

The 34-year-old is making his fifth appearance with missed cuts in 2010 and 2015, and top-30 finishes in 2013 (T29) and 2014 (T24). He checks in 7-for-12 on the season with two top 25s and is playing his eighth straight tournament. The Jackson, Michigan, native kicked off in 68-69 and silenced a lone bogey-5 at 11 with birdies on Nos. 2, 3, 8 and 18, two of those were two-putt versions, another from 32 inches, and the most memorable a 14-footer from the fringe at the eighth.

World No. 170 Brian Stuard had one top 10 in 20 starts last season, his playoff win at the weather-shortened Zurich Classic of New Orleans in May.

The Michigan native played 66 rounds in 2015-16 and led or co-led after three of them. All three of those came at the waterlogged Zurich, where it took FIVE days to get 54 holes completed and ultimately ended in a 3-man playoff on Monday. The Fort Worth, Texas, resident won as a pre-tourney 250/1 outright, claiming his first title in his 120th career start after entering the week on conditional status. He was a perfect 46-for-46 in putting from inside of 10 feet and went 20-for-20 in scrambling, just the fourth TOUR winner since 1992 with a perfect scrambling record. The 34-year-old has played 18 events since, missing seven cuts with no top-15 finishes. Digging deeper, he has two top 10s in his last 70 starts, a T10 at the WM Phoenix Open (100 weeks ago) and the win.

Brian Stuard rallied for a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 7-under 135, down two places on the live leaderboard to T5, two shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Brian Harman.

The 33-year-old was 1-over on his lap thru 14 holes, outpacing birdie-2 at three (25 inches) with bogey-4s on holes eight and 11, before birdieing three of his final four holes. He circled the 15th from 7'4" and went back-to-back at 17 and 18, both from four feet and in. The Jackson, Michigan, native mustered 12 greens in regulation for a second straight round, and lost 0.777 SG: Around-the-Green, going 4-for-6 in scrambles. He did make three par-savers from between five and eight feet to avoid any further damage.

Brian Stuard styled a 5-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the Deutsche Bank Championship to find himself in a share of second place with play still in progress.

Stuard really warmed up the putter today, splashing home five putts from 8'10" or longer. The most notable was a 21'2" birdie bomb at the par-3 11th hole, his second hole of the day after starting on the back nine. Despite missing a 4-footer at the par-5 seventh, he still managed to gain 2.168 strokes putting on the round. In nine rounds at TPC Boston, Stuard now has three rounds of 66 or better. On the flip side, he's posted five rounds at 71 or worse, so it appears to be all or nothing for the 33-year-old.

Brian Stuard pieced together a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of The Barclays to reach 1-under 212, up 29 places to T32 with play still in progress.

The 33-year-old has one top 10 this season in 17 events and that was his maiden TOUR win (120th career start) at the weather-shortened Zurich Classic (54 holes). He kicked off his third Barclays with 71-73 to sit one inside the cut line (T61), and played his first nine on Saturday in bogey-free 3-under, circling birdie-2s on Nos. 3 and 8, both from inside of six feet, and adding a birdie on the par-4 ninth from 18'5". After the break, the Michigan native squared three bogeys, all on failed scrambles, but leveled the card with birdie-3s at 12 (10'11") and 16 (19'3"), and birdie at the par-3 14th from the fringe (13'9"). He striped 12 (of 14) fairways but mustered just 10 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.621 SG: Total. Stuard entered the week 70th in the FedExCup standings.

Brian Stuard scorched TPC River Highlands with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the Travelers Championship, reaching halftime at 5-under 135.

Stuard striped 12 (of 14) fairways on the day to reach 25 fairways hit on the week. That's currently tied for first in the field. The accuracy off the tee helped set up 14 greens hit and his flat stick did the rest of the work. On the round, he rolled in three putts from 8-to-11 feet but more importantly didn't miss any short or mid-range looks. Stuard's putter is always reliable so it usually comes down how well he's striking the ball, and so far he ranks 23rd in the field, tee-to-green. Stuard posted a T25 at last year's Travelers, his best in four tries. He will now enter the weekend inside the top 10 with a good chance to improve upon that.

Brian Stuard launched up the leaderboard during the third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, carding a 3-under-par 34-33=67 to reach 3-under 207 on the week.

Known for his great putting, it was surprising to see a missed 5'5" par-saving attempt at the first. That was all he needed to get dialed in, though, as he splashed home seven putts from outside seven feet from that point on. The most notable was a 23'8" birdie bomb at the par-3 15th hole. These putts were all set up thanks to some accurate driving, splitting 11 (of 14) fairways to give him a shot at hitting greens (11 GIR on the day). Making his WGC debut this week, Stuard sits in solo fourth place at the moment with three golfers still on the course ahead of him.
