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.
Mar 7 - 5:11 PM

Brian Stuard posted a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, good for outright possession of the overnight lead.

He started on the back side of Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico and promptly circled five birdies before the turn. Stuard picked up two more at 2 and 3 before suffering his only blemish of the round with a bogey-5 at No. 7. He tied for fourth last year and didn't shoot higher than 69 in any round. The non-winner is seeking to become the fourth first-time champion in seven editions of the tournament.
Mar 6 - 11:16 AM

Brian Stuard has joined the clubhouse lead at The Honda Classic with his third-round 5-under-par 31-34=65, improving to 5-under 205 for the tournament.

Stuard's round was nearly blemish-free, with six birdies serving as a compliment to his 11 pars over the first 17 holes before a bogey at the par-5 18th broke the streak. He was on fire early at PGA National, circling birdies on each of the first three holes including a 13'11" roll on the par-4 second. The longest of his six birdies came on the par-4 12th from 21 feet. Regardless of how his last 18 holes play out this week, he should be on everyone's short list at the Puerto Rico Open next week. He tied for fourth in that event last year.
Mar 1 - 11:46 AM

Brian Stuard spun a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Humana Challenge to emerge with a third consecutive top-10 finish in 2013-14.

Stuard was 3-under through 14 holes, with four birdies only slowed by a lone bogey. He then heated up to circle birdies on his final four holes. After a second at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and a runner-up at the Sony Open last week, there's no doubt that he's playing the best golf of his PGA TOUR career. His 24-under 264 is good for fifth place.
Jan 19 - 6:42 PM

Brian Stuard navigated the Palmer Private at PGA West to the tune of a third-round blemish-free 6-under-par 33-33=66, joining a growing group at 17-under 199 through 54 holes.

Stuard did the majority of his work on the par 5s, circling four birdies on his five opportunities. The ball-striking was in check, landing 16 GIR but only gaining about half a stroke with the flat stick. He's going for his third consecutive top-10 finish on the PGA TOUR, following a runner-up in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and a sixth at the Sony Open last week. He tied for 10th in this event last year, so his for and history suggested he would be successful. He has 18 holes remaining on Palmer Private to close out his tournament.
Jan 18 - 5:38 PM

Brian Stuard arrived at the halfway point of the Humana Challenge in 11-under-par 67-66=133, seven strokes off the overnight lead.

Stuard bookended the holiday break with a solo second in México and a solo sixth in Honolulu before extending his assault on sub-70s in the Coachella Valley this week. He's hit 30 greens in regulation and offset three bogeys with 14 birdies, including on all four par 5s at La Quinta Country Club on Thursday. Including both rounds this week, he's shot 68 or lower in 11 of his last 14 rounds. Today's latest occurred at PGA West's Nicklaus Private, so Palmer Private is bracing itself for the upstart on Saturday.
Jan 17 - 8:11 PM

Brian Stuard couldn't bring home the Sony Open title, but his 3-under-par 32-35=67 was good enough for a top-10 finish at 12-under 268.

The 36-hole leader finished his week at Waialae Country Club with 19 birdies and an eagle to nine bogeys. Other than a 1.644 putting average, nothing stands out statistically in regards to his game this week. His final round featured four birdies on his opening 12 holes, but he leaked oil with two bogeys and a birdie over his final six holes.
Jan 12 - 9:31 PM

Brian Stuard survived the third round of the Sony Open with a 1-over-par 37-34=71 and falling into a tie for sixth at 9-under 201.

All things considered, Stuard could find himself in a much worse spot than three off the lead headed into the final round. His round was very likely a case of nerves, as he bogeyed three of his first 13 holes and didn't find his first red figure until back-to-back birdies on 15 and 16. After a perfect drive, he had a shot to square his round on the par-5 18th but pulled his approach and settled for par. Maybe the news isn't all bad, as Zach Johnson was the 36-hole leader last week. You'll remember ZJ surrendered his lead last week only to come back and win the HTOC finale.
