Daniel Summerhays contests his sixth Shriners Hospitals for Children Open where he's made his last four cuts with a best of T16 last year, though T5 at the midpoint (68-65-72-69).
The 32-year-old kicked off his seventh TOUR season with a missed cut (by three) in Napa (71-73) and flew around the world for a 65th (of 78) at the no-cut CIMB in Malaysia on rounds of 70-69-71-77, 22 shots behind champion Justin Thomas. Since a T11 at the Travelers in August, which chased solo 3rd at the PGA Championship, the BYU alum has missed four straight cuts with only the above-mentioned 65th at the no-cut CIMB and 68th (last place) at the BMW Championship that ended his Playoffs at 65th in the FedExCup standings.

Daniel Summerhays ranks 55th in the FedExCup race ahead of this week's BMW Championship.

The BYU product set a career high in top 25s this season, racking up 11 in 27 starts. That eclipses his previous best of eight top 25s. Unfortunately, his recent form is not so hot, entering the week on the heels of three straight missed cuts. On the season he ranks outside the top 90 in all strokes gained sub-categories except for putting. The 32-year-old will need his best stuff tee-to-green this week if he wants to play his way into the TOUR Championship.

Daniel Summerhays, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, backed up with a 3-over-par 37-37=74 in the two-day second round of the John Deere Classic and at 6-over 74-74=148, missed the cut by nine strokes.

A total of 73 players made the cut of 3-under 139, 15 on the number (T59). For his part, Summerhays circled birdie-4s on Nos. 1 and 10, and closed on a high note with back-to-back birdies on 17 (7'9") and 18 (8'10"), but didn't come close to overcoming three straight bogeys on holes 5-7 and double bogey-6s on 11 and 13. His early exit ends a run of three straight top-15 finishes at the JDC, two of those top 10s. The BYU alum totaled one eagle and five birdies against nine bogeys and two doubles. Other notables with early departures include: 140- Michael Thompson; Tyrone Van Aswegen; 2005 champ Sean O'Hair; Chris Stroud; Gary Woodland ... 141- Spencer Levin; 2014 champ Brian Harman; 2004 champ Mark Hensby ... 142- 2006 champ John Senden; Vaughn Taylor ... 143- Retief Goosen ... 146- Jerry Kelly ... 149- Robert Streb.

Daniel Summerhays authored a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the Travelers Championship for a three-day total of 8-under 202, up 14 places to T10 with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old began R3 on 3-under (T24) after opening his fifth Travelers in 68-69, four back of a four, overnight co-leaders. In his other four attempts at TPC River Highlands, his best is 74th on debut in 2011 (69-67-75-74), and missed his last three cuts. The BYU product arrived off a season-best solo third at the PGA, his career-best major finish in six major appearances. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit a week-best 16 greens in regulation, posting 1.563 putts per GIR and 2.701 SG: Putting. Summerhays' seven-birdie lap featured a 21-footer at the par-4 first, a 37-footer at the par-4 ninth, and three straight on Nos. 14-16. He bogeyed the 10th on a failed scramble, whiffing his par putt from 34 inches, and the 18th after an errant tee shot, but canned a 44-footer for a one-putt bogey-5.

Daniel Summerhays painted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the 98th PGA Championship to post 10-under 270, up five spots to solo third and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Summerhays finished solo third, four shy of champion Jimmy Walker, and vaults to a career-best 53rd in OWGR.

The 32-year-old was T4 thru 54 holes at the U.S. Open before settling for T8 (as an alternate), his career-best finish in a then five major championship appearances. Entering this week, it was also his lone top 10 of the season in 23 starts and arrived off a MC at the Canadian Open and T59 at The Open, also as an alternate. The BYU product began the finale on 6-under (T8) after first completing 15 holes left over from Saturday's third round. He exchanged one birdie with one bogey to turn even before circling five against one bogey on his inward half. Summerhays converted three from greater than 10 feet with a long of 41'6" at the par-3 12th.

Daniel Summerhays prepares for his second PGA Championship and heads out in the second-to-last threesome off No. 10 tee on Thursday (2:05 p.m. ET) with Cameron Tringale and PGA club pro Rick Schuller.

The 32-year-old is making his second appearance after T33 in 2014 (Valhalla GC). It's his sixth overall start in a major championship and his third this season. The Utah native and resident played the U.S. Open and The Open, both as an alternate, and posted a career-best-major finish with T8 at Oakmont, where he was T4 after 54 holes. He went for T59 two weeks ago at Royal Troon. The T8 at the U.S. Open is Summerhays' only top 10 of the season in 22 starts, though he has nine top 25s, and enters the week off a missed cut at the Canadian Open (71-78).

Daniel Summerhays ballooned to a 4-over-par 39-35=74 during the final round of the U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club, collecting a T8 finish at 2-over 282 on the week.

Summerhays opened the round in a share of third place and managed the ole' fairway-and-green combo on the par-4 first hole, but uncharacteristically missed a 6-footer to save par. That may have set the tone as his flat stick had been his biggest weapon in rounds one through three. He followed it up with a missed birdie attempt from seven feet on the next hole. There was no recovering from that slow start on the greens as the BYU product would go on to trade two birdies with a six-pack of bogeys. Despite the lackluster finishing round, this still goes in the books as a T8, his career best in a major championship (T27, 2015 U.S. Open).

Daniel Summerhays rallied for a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the two-day third round of the U.S. Open to post 2-under 208, up four spots on the live leaderboard to T3.

The 32-year-old is making his third appearance with a lone cash of T27 in 2015. He was T5 thru 36 holes last year at Chambers Bay (70-67), but closed in 78-70. The BYU alum began the third round this week on 1-under (T7) after 74 and a week-tying-low 65. He was 2-over on his lap thru 14 holes when play was suspended, overshadowing birdies at Nos. 4 and 8 with bogeys on 1, 7, 10 and 12. Summerhays returned on Sunday to play his final four holes in 3-under, birdieing the par-4 15th from six feet and rolling-in a 28-footer for eagle-2 at the 17th after driving the green. He split nine (of 14) fairways, hit 13 greens in regulation and took 31 swings with the flat stick.

Daniel Summerhays torched the back nine of Oakmont Country Club en route to a 5-under-par 35-30=65 during the second round of the 116th U.S. Open Championship, currently the low round of the day (and week) to reach 1-under 139 through 36 holes.

The BYU product squeezed the most juice possible out of this round, circling seven birdies despite just 12 greens in regulation. An impressive ratio, that was helped out by a pair of 5-yard hole outs from just off the green (par-5 12th and par-4 14th). Summerhays also splashed home four putts between 8-and-10 feet during his second navigation of Oakmont CC. He also dropped in a 32-foot birdie bomb at the par-3 eighth hole, helping him play the par 3s at 2-under on the round. There is no ShotLink this week, but Summerhays surely would have shined in the around-the-green and putting departments. After an opening 4-over 74, this rockets him up to T7 on the live leaderboard.

Daniel Summerhays flies in under the radar ahead of his appearance at this week's U.S. Open Championship, held at Oakmont Country Club.

The BYU product missed the cut in his 2010 U.S. Open debut, but returned with a T27 in last year's edition. More recently, he's collected five straight paychecks, with a pair of top 15s during the stretch. Summerhays ranks outside the top 100 in strokes gained tee-to-green but 15th in strokes gained putting. His driving accuracy is deceptively low this year (ranked 101st) but he also ranks 23rd in the distance from the edge of the fairway metric. So, he's not missing fairways by much. With accuracy at a premium this week, Summerhays makes for a very sneaky sleeper in many fantasy formats.

Daniel Summerhays authored a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to post 5-under 211, up 33 places to T15.

On a course setup that bordered on the ridiculous, Summerhays' 71 was one of only six red numbers of 76 contestants in R3. He began the third round on 4-under (T48) after opening his fourth PLAYERS in 69-71. The 32-year-old went off No. 10 tee and landed 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, recording a pedestrian 0.560 in SGTTG but a sterling 4.032 in SGP. The BYU alum circled 11, 12 and 16 to turn 3-under, but gave them all back with a triple bogey-7 at the sixth, 4-putting from 10'1". He sandwiched a 3-putt bogey at eight with birdies at 7 and 9, including a long of 24'7" at the former, and also dropped five par putts from between six and 15 feet.

Daniel Summerhays signed for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 after the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to wrap his sixth appearance on 3-under 285, up four to T15 with play still in progress.

This will easily be Summerhays' best at Quail Hollow brushing aside T43 in 2013. Prior to this week, he'd mustered just three red numbers in 14 career laps but equaled that output posting rounds of 69-75-71-70. The 32-year-old totaled just 13 birdies for the tourney, currently tied 38th in that stat, and is T35 in bogeys with 12, but is T1 with no double-bogeys or worse. On an easier track, the latter would be insignificant, but it was an accomplishment at the difficult 7,575-yard Quail Hollow, site of next year's PGA Championship.
May 8 - 4:00 PM

Daniel Summerhays rallied for a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in today's final round of the Valero Texas Open for a 72-hole total of 7-under 281, up 22 places to T7 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Summerhays finished T13.

Summerhays entered his sixth VTO 81st in the FedExCup standings with no top 10s on 13 starts. He recent form yielded one top-25 finish in his last eight events (T22), sprinkling-in three missed cuts. This is a case for course-form gamers however, as the 32-year-old is most likely going to leave San Antonio with his fourth straight top 10. Summerhays began his final frame on 3-under (T29) after opening with 72-70-71. He exchanged two birdies with two bogeys to turn even but raced home in blemish-free 4-under 32, circling the 10th, 14th, 16th and 17th. Summerhays' split included a 26-footer at the par-4 10th and a 30'7" bomb at the par-3 16th. He currently is No. 1 for the week in strokes gained: putting at 7.073.

Daniel Summerhays ranks 76th in the FedExCup standings ahead of this week's RBC Heritage.

Summerhays hasn't teed it up since the Arnold Palmer invitational (Missed Cut) four weeks ago. His course history at Harbour Town Golf Links is spotty, at best. In four trips, he's missed the cut twice and collected T60 and T64 finishes in his other two appearances. His style of play profiles much better than his history would suggest. He doesn't rely on distance and can really putt his golf ball, saving par when needed. Gamers should not get carried away this week, but it would not be surprising to see him post a new career best here at the Heritage.

Daniel Summerhays sets his eyes on Riviera Country Club for this week's Northern Trust Open.

The BYU product is fresh off a missed cut at the AT&T Pro-Am where he is out of contention from the start. On the week he signed for 75-75-70 as the week progressed. This was very surprising as he arrived with cuts made in seven-of-seven record on the season. Summerhays is 2-for-4 at the NTO, including top 30s in each of his past two visits. Gamers are still nursing their wounds from last week, but this could be a good opportunity to buy when the stock is at its lowest.
