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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Daniel Summerhays came out of the first threesome off the first hole in today's late draw in the opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii and carded a 4-under-par 34-32=66.

He needed an eagle to fall from 23'2" at the par-5 18th to get there and post up four strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders. Summerhays missed only three greens in regulation and squared one bogey. He also converted three birdies in a four-hole stretch, a set that included a roll from 14'2" at the par-3 11th. For good measure, he even saved par from 13'7" at No. 7.

Daniel Summerhays kept the pedal down during the Fall Series and will enter 2015 ranked 51st on the FedExCup leaderboard.

Summerhays was a perfect 5-for-5 this fall, but failed to land any finishes inside the top 25. As the owner of a runner-up finish in each of the past two seasons, he belongs on a short list of golfers ready to secure a maiden victory. The primary takeaway from 2013-14 was his improved consistency, missing just five cuts in 27 starts. Gamers should now feel comfortable rostering him on a weekly basis.

Daniel Summerhays enjoyed a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

He missed only two (of 14) fairways and three greens in regulation at El Camaleón Golf Club today. That precision yielded eight birdies, including on each of the three par 5s. All of his other par breakers disappeared on par 4s. With two bogeys also on his card, Summerhays reached the midpoint of the tournament in 8-under 134 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Daniel Summerhays finished with a piece of fifth place at the 2012 OHL Classic at Mayakoba and returns this week for another crack at El Camaleón Golf Club.

Summerhays squandered the 54-hole lead back in 2012 with his 2-over 73 on Sunday. His return to El Camaleón last year wasn't as fruitful, failing to sign a red number, and going home early. Summerhays is still circling in on that maiden PGA TOUR win, and his lack of distance off the tee makes this track as good as any to earn his first.

Daniel Summerhays tied for 46th at the Open last week and is back in action at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open this week.

Summerhays enters 2014-15 as one of the players on the short list to perhaps breakthrough with his first PGA TOUR victory. His returns at TPC Summerlin have improved incrementally over his last three trips. He missed the cut in 2011 before improving to a T36 and a T23 in his last two ventures.

Daniel Summerhays posted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 1-under 212.

Summerhays bagged five birdies to just one bogey on his Sunday stroll around TPC Boston. Three of his birdies dropped from outside of 14 feet, with a 24'3" putt on the par-5 second serving as the biggest highlight. He took advantage of the par 5s, circling birdies on all three. As suggested by the length of his birdie putts, he gained well over two strokes with the flat stick at the time of his posting.

Daniel Summerhays submitted a 3-under-par 35-33=68 for his opening round of The Barclays, finishing two strokes in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Summerhays is in his third consecutive Playoffs. He went three deep last year and opens this year's at 49th in points. His putting was outstanding at Ridgewood Country Club today as he went 15-for-16 from inside 17 feet in addition to conversions of 21'3" and 30'3" at Nos. 13 and 2, respectively. All four of his birdies traveled over 11 feet. At last check, his strokes gained-putting measured 3.825, good for second-best in the field of 122.

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.
