18-hole co-leader Brian Stuard tacked on a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the two-day second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to reach the midpoint on 12-under 132, good for sole possession of the 36-hole lead.
Second-round play is still in progress but it's doubtful anyone will catch Stuard, who's leading by one over Jamie Lovemark and 18-hole co-leader Jhonattan Vegas, who were both in the house on Friday. The 513th-ranked player in the world was 2-under thru 12 holes, 10-under total, when play was suspended due to darkness yesterday. He returned on Saturday to play his final six holes in 2-under circling back-to-backs on holes 7 and 8 from 14'4" and 10'5", respectively, and remains bogey-free thru 36 holes. In total, the 33-year-old circled four on the card -- penciling birdies on 1 and 2 on Friday -- on 12 greens in regulation, and at last glance, is pacing the field in strokes gained: putting at 7.842, including 1.454 in R2.

Brian Stuard ransacked TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-33=64 during the first round at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

It was all putting, all the time, today for Stuard. He splashed home par-saving rolls from 32'5" (par-4 12th) and 19'11" (par-3 17th), but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Stuard also fired in seven birdie putts from outside seven feet, four coming from 11 feet or longer. He walked off the course having gained 6.446 strokes with the flat stick, the third highest single-round putting performance for any golfer on TOUR this season. There is no way Stuard can maintain this pace on the putting surface but luckily this round gives him a nice cushion as he moves toward a much needed big finish.

Brian Stuard sets his eyes on the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio for a third appearance at this week's Valero Texas Open.

The Fort Worth resident hasn't found much success here with a pair of missed cuts in two tries (2010,2015). More recently, he's just 2-for-5 on the season and also 0-for-2 on the junior circuit. Stuard still owns a career top-25 rate over 20 percent (25-of-118) but his current form is just too far gone to rely on at the moment.

Brian Stuard grabbed a couple of paychecks over the fall portion of the schedule and will enter the new year ranked 110th in the FedExCup standings.

The fairways-and-greens specialist carded red numbers in six of his eight rounds over the fall. The result was a T39 and T25 at the Sanderson Farms Championship and The RSM Classic, respectively. Stuard remains a great option for gamers on shorter tracks, but his sub-285 drives put him at a disadvantage on many of today's courses.

Brian Stuard smoothed a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 at Sea Island Resort's Plantation Course in today's opening round of The RSM Classic.

This is how you christen a first-time co-host course. Stuard found all 14 fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation en route to four birdies. Remarkably, he parred all four par 5s, so it's probable that he thinks he left a couple of shots out there today. Nevertheless, he's just two strokes off the early clubhouse lead with the Seaside Course on tap tomorrow.

Brian Stuard returns to the Sanderson Farms Championship for the first time since 2010 and takes his first look at the Country Club of Jackson.

Last we saw Stuard on the big stage he was missing the cut at the Wyndham Championship, and was one (of five) to get bumped out of the FedExCup Playoffs, having entered the week at No. 119. He ultimately finished 128th so he's beginning his fifth TOUR season on conditional status. The 32-year-old went the Tour Finals' route but missed three cuts on four starts and cashed a T56. Stuard's only other appearance at the Sanderson Farms went for a T59 in the 2010 edition held at Annandale GC.

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.

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.

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.

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.
