Daniel Summerhays will try and tackle Valhalla Golf Club this week at the 96th PGA Championship.

Summerhays missed the cut in his major championship debut (2014 U.S. Open) and will be making his PGA Championship debut this week. The BYU product is 18-for-23 on the season, including 11 top 30s. He continues to make his presence known on leaderboards, and appears to be closing in on his first PGA TOUR victory. However, it's time to push on the brakes this week due to his lack of experience at major championships.

Daniel Summerhays signed for a 1-under-par 34-35=70 following his opening round of the Quicken Loans National.

He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation at Congressional today. The output yielded four birdies, including beauts from 21'1" at the par-4 eighth hole and 20'10" at the par-5 16th. Summerhays also squared a double bogey at the par-4 11th, where his approach found water, and a bogey-5 at 17, but he's just three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Daniel Summerhays tied for 17th place in the 2012 Quicken Loans National and returns to take on Congressional Country Club in this week's edition.

Summerhays backed up his T17 finish with a missed cut. This year he enters with a lot of momentum. On the season, he's missed just four of 20 cuts, turning nine of those into top 30s. With two podium finishes in the past 11 months, Summerhays has to be near the top of the field when looking at golfers closest to earning their first PGA TOUR victory.

Daniel Summerhays returns to the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial for the fourth consecutive year.

After missed cuts in 2011 and '12, he began to unlock Colonial Country Club to the tune of a T35. It's worth looking at his scores here over the years. Beginning with his first round in 2011 and continuing in order through his final round a year ago, they are 72, 81, 67, 78, 65, 73, 67 and 72. Point being, two of his first four rounds in the books were 8-over-par or worse, but three of the last six are 3-under or better. That's a decent trend.

Daniel Summerhays will compete in his fourth consecutive Zurich Classic of New Orleans this week.

Summerhays is 41st in the FedExCup standings, with a T2 at the Valero Texas Open in his recent past as he makes his way to TPC Louisiana. This hasn't been his best stop, missing the cut twice and tying for 30th in 2012. Considering the career curve he's riding, it's very plausible that this will be his most lucrative trip to the Bayou.

Daniel Summerhays signed for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to join Will MacKenzie in a share of the clubhouse lead at 7-under 281.

Summerhays erased a bogey on the par-3 third with a 22'8" birdie at the par-4 sixth, then reached red figures with an 11'1" birdie on the par-5 eighth. His back nine included a pair of birdies from inside 10 feet, but also included two bogeys. Never a winner on the PGA TOUR, he will now need a notable collapse by Steven Bowditch on the par-5 18th if he is to claim his first title this week. This is his second top 10, and first top five, of the 2013-14 season.
Mar 30 - 5:52 PM

Daniel Summerhays spun a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open to reach the 54-hole mark at 6-under 210.

Summerhays continues to search for his first PGA TOUR title, and his five birdies to just three bogeys at TPC San Antonio have him in position to make a run in the finale. After opening with five pars, he got on the board with his first birdie at the par-4 sixth. He then squared each of his three bogeys between the seventh and 10th holes before bagging his final four birdies of the span of his last eight holes.

Daniel Summerhays carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the Valero Texas Open to post 4-under 140 at the midpoint, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Summerhays started the week slotted 63rd in FedExCup points and on the list for many as one of the best without a PGA TOUR victory. He's in position to break through at TPC San Antonio thanks to today's effort. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and stood over 14 opportunities to break par. Summerhays did so five times, three of which ranging 11-15 feet. He squared only one bogey.

Daniel Summerhays followed his 6-over-par 77 in the opening round of the Valspar Championship with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to survive the cut on the number at 3-over 135.

Summerhays went 0-for-12 in par-breaker opportunities on Thursday before converting on four of 16 chances today. He split 11 (of 13) fairways. His only notable birdie measured 19'2" at the par-5 fifth hole. Seemingly poised to sign a blemish-free card laying two from 33 feet at the par-4 ninth, his last of the round, he three-jacked for a 5. But that he had the room to spare speaks to just how much he had dug himself out of a hole. Eight-four golfers made the cut, 21 of which on the number, so a second cut of low 70 and ties will fall after 54 holes are complete.
Mar 14 - 7:51 PM

Daniel Summerhays posted a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of The Honda Classic and enters the final round tied for ninth at 6-under 204.

Summerhays picked up his first of three birdies from 12'4" on the par-4 eighth, then dropped bogeys at the 11th and 13th holes. He rallied with a 2'2" birdie at the par-4 14th and a 23'9" birdie at the par-3 15th. He trails Rory McIlroy by six entering the final round.
Mar 1 - 5:56 PM

Daniel Summerhays fashioned a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in his second round of The Honda Classic to post 5-under 135 at the midpoint, six strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Summerhays opened with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole today. After an up and down for par at the par-4 11th, he circled six consecutive birdies. That run was capped with conversions from 36'1", 13'10" and 21'3" at the 15th, 16th and 17th holes, respectively. That trio of holes, of course, is The Bear Trap at PGA National. Summerhays has enjoyed a nice season thus far and arrived sitting 57th in FedExCup points, but he's still chasing his first PGA TOUR victory.

Daniel Summerhays reached the midpoint of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 5-under-par 69-69=138.

Summerhays opened on the par-71 Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club before moving over to Pebble Beach today. After splitting all 13 fairways at hitting 16 greens in the opener, he split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 14 GIR today. A lone bogey-5 at the 16th hole was covered up by four birdies, including rolls from 35'3" and 16'9" at the fourth and 15th holes, respectively. He'll conclude his rotation at Spyglass Hill on Saturday.
Feb 7 - 5:36 PM

Daniel Summerhays posted a 3-under-par 33-36=69 at PGA West's Palmer Private in his second round of the Humana Challenge to reach the halfway point in 11-under 133, seven strokes adrift of the 36-hole lead.

Summerhays split 11 (of 13) fairways but found only 10 greens in regulation today. Nevertheless, he maximized on his opportunities by pouring in six birdies, including a hole-out from the rough seven yards out at the par-3 15th hole. His longest conventional conversion measured just 11'10" at the third hole. He squared three bogeys to quell any momentum, and he needs to be sharper on Saturday at La Quinta Country Club.
Jan 17 - 7:39 PM

Daniel Summerhays torched PGA West's Nicklaus Private for an 8-under-par 34-30=64 in his opening round of the Humana Challenge.

After a bogey-4 at the 17th hole -- his eighth of the round -- Summerhays came hom in bogey-free 7-under with seven birdies. Overall, he hit 14 greens in regulation and signed his card sitting just one off the overnight lead. He'll continue his pursuit of his first PGA TOUR victory in his second round over at Palmer Private.
