Daniel Summerhays poured in six birdies en route to a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in today's second round of the U.S. Open.
Summerhays has been on the PGA TOUR since 2011, but this is just his third appearance in a major. In fact, he made his circuit debut in this tournament in 2010 at Pebble Beach. The steady stream of experience has likely helped him feel comfortable on the big stage at Chambers Bay. Today, he landed 16 greens in regulation and countered his par breakers with one bogey and a double. Overall, the 31-year-old has missed only eight (of 28) fairways and the same number of greens in regulation. At 3-under 137, he's just two swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Daniel Summerhays carded a share of fourth place at the 2012 Memorial and finds his way back this week for another look at Muirfield Village.

The BYU product has good season form, collecting paychecks in 14-of-18 events. That form has gone sour as of late, with just one top 50 in his last six starts entering the week. Luckily, that other finish was a T4 at the Valero Texas Open, which continues to show his upside potential. Summerhays remains in the bracket of golfers close to breaking out, and gamers should have a look this week if they need a sleeper.

Daniel Summerhays heads to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, for this week's PLAYERS and ranks 53rd in FedExCup points.

Summerhays has cashed in 13-of-15 events this season with two top 10s (T10, Valspar and T4, Valero), both of which have come in his last four starts. The 31-year-old is 2-for-2 at TPC Sawgrass registering a respectable T26 in 2013 and T23 last year. He's on a bit of form having made seven cuts in a row, but struggled to a T60-finish in his last start at the RBC Heritage.
May 5 - 10:34 PM

Daniel Summerhays closed out his week at the Valero Texas Open with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round.

HIs 3-under 285 is good for the clubhouse lead and almost certainly assures him a top-five finish. He circled two birdies on the front nine at TPC San Antonio to go with seven pars. The first was a 34'5" bomb on the par-4 sixth and the second an 11'1" birdie at the par-4 ninth. HIs back nine was a wild ride, with three bogeys and four birdies only allowing room for two pars. After posting a runner-up finish in this event last year, it is clear that he is a prudent play until he proves otherwise at this layout.

Daniel Summerhays battled for an even-par 38-34=72 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and enters the finale at even-par 216.

Summerhays was behind the eight ball from the start, squaring a double bogey on the par-4 first hole. He traded a 15'3" birdie at the par-4 fifth hole with a bogey at the par-4 sixth. Largely an afterthought at that point, he bounced back late in his round with a 12'8" birdie on the par-3 16th and a closing birdie on the par-5 18th. Last year's runner-up will need something low on Sunday if he is to walk away with his first PGA TOUR win.
Mar 28 - 5:26 PM

Daniel Summerhays carded a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, finishing with outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Winds have abated some at TPC San Antonio and the scores are reflecting it this afternoon. Morning clubhouse co-leaders Matt Kuchar and Cameron Percy are already outside the top 15 on the leaderboard. Summerhays went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee and buried three birdies to cover two bogeys. His longest conversion ran 19'11" for birdie at the par-4 11th hole. Despite the improved scoring conditions, he still managed his game well due to just nine greens in regulation. TPC San Antonio is the site of Summerhays' most earnings at any venue. After sharing seventh place in 2013, he rose to a co-runner-up last year.
Mar 26 - 6:40 PM

Daniel Summerhays managed an even-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the Valspar Championship and is in line for a top-10 finish at 4-under 280.

Summerhays spread three birdies and three bogeys across the Copperhead Course in the finale. The shortest of his birdies fell from 17'3" on the par-3 15th hole, with the longest a 40'2" bomb on the par-4 seventh. No matter how it shakes out the rest of the way, this will be his first top-15 finish of the season.
Mar 15 - 5:21 PM

Daniel Summerhays takes the early clubhouse lead in the third round of the Valspar Championship with a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 improving him to 4-under 209 for the tournament.

Proximity was the key to the low score for Summerhays, as the longest of his four birdies fell from a mere 6'1". With the Copperhead Course known for showing fangs later in the day, it will be interesting to see where this total places him at the end of the round. It would seem that a low round on Sunday would allow him a legitimate chance to steal his first PGA TOUR victory.
Mar 14 - 1:52 PM

Daniel Summerhays settled for an even-par 35-35=70 in the third round of The Honda Classic to remain at 1-under 209 with 18 holes to play.

Summerhays played PGA National's Champion Course like it was a U.S. Open, only interrupting his 16 pars with a bogey on the par-4 10th and a 17'7" birdie at the par-4 13th hole. He'll have his work cut out for himself if he is to nab his first win on the PGA TOUR, but a top-10 finish is well within his grasp.
Mar 1 - 3:26 PM

Daniel Summerhays completed his second round of The Honda Classic on Friday and sits 1-under-par 71-68=139 through 36 holes.

Summerhays made noise to open last week's Northern Trust Open before drifting into a share of 30th place. While he's cashed in eight of 10 starts this season, he's still in pursuit of his first top 15 (and second top 25). In his second round of PGA National, he went 5-for-11 in scoring opportunities with five birdies. Two dropped in from 11'5" (at Nos. 1 and 5), but the highlight ranged 30'3" at the par-3 seventh hole. Summerhays signed his card sitting five strokes off Patrick Reed's 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Feb 28 - 7:55 AM

Overnight co-leader Daniel Summerhays posted a 3-over-par 38-36=74 in today's second round of the Northern Trust Open.

Very little went right for the 31-year-old today. He converted on only two of 11 chances to break par -- both on par 5s -- and squared five bogeys. While he poured in a par save from just outside 10 feet at the par-4 seventh hole, Summerhays whiffed on four tries inside eight feet. The good news is that he's only four swings back of 36-hole leader Retief Goosen. Summerhays is 2-under 140.
Feb 20 - 9:16 PM

With a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round, Daniel Summerhays owns a piece of the clubhouse lead at the Northern Trust Open.

Summerhays was the fifth and final to post 66 from today's morning wave. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. That precision yielded seven birdies against two bogeys. His most notable conversion dropped for birdie from the rough 16 yards away at the par-4 18th hole, while his longest conventional birdie ran 14'4" at the par-3 16th. The 31-year-old arrived at Riviera sitting 68th in the FedExCup standings despite only one top 25 (T17, Sony Open). He's still chasing his first PGA TOUR victory in this his 119th career start.
Feb 19 - 4:39 PM

Daniel Summerhays will look to right the ship at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

After a perfect 6-for-6 start to the new season, the BYU product has missed two straight cuts ahead of this week. On the bright side he has missed just one cut in four attempts at Pebble Beach and compiled three top 40s along the way. Summerhays is a good bet to sneak back into the top 30 this week but anything after that is just a cherry on top.
Feb 10 - 11:21 PM

Daniel Summerhays rebounded from a rocky start to secure a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in the third round of the Sony Open.

Summerhays swallowed three bogeys on his first six holes before rebounding with six birdies on his final 11 to end the day, improving to 10-under 200 for the tournament. Proximity was the key to four of his birdies, but the putter allowed him a 13'8" birdie on the par-4 eighth and a 22'6" birdie on the par-3 17th. He will try and close the door on a top-10 finish in Sunday's final round.
Jan 17 - 9:40 PM

Daniel Summerhays manufactured a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 7-under 133 at the break, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Summerhays went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee today at Waialae Country Club. He striped only four (of 14) fairways and managed to hit only 11 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to one bogey (at the par-4 16th hole). He circled four birdies, the longest from just 11'5" at the par-4 sixth, but he didn't miss from inside 14 feet all day.
