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 their 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. Dec 24 - 11:48 AM

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.
Aug 5 - 10:31 AM

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.
Apr 21 - 9:15 PM

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.
Mar 29 - 5:53 PM

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.
Mar 28 - 2:28 PM

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.
