Hudson Swafford contests his third RSM Classic in Saint Simons Island, Georgia.
Swafford checks a lot of boxes for gamers this week. Saint Simons Island, Georgia, resident, check. Sea Island GC member, check. Finished T12 here last year, closing in 67-66-67, check. Ranks 10th on TOUR in strokes gained: putting after finishing 26th in SGP last season, check. The 28-year-old will garner a lot of interest, but there is some hesitation as he's failed to kick-on to begin 2015-16 posting T17-MC-T24 and T46 last week in México. He also only logged one top-10 finish last season on 30 starts, and that came in his first event (T8, Open). Nov 18 - 5:25 PM

Hudson Swafford does battle in his third Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas.

Swafford may make some shortlists this week in Nevada after a T17 last week at the, where he finished first in driving distance (322.8) and second in the field in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative 9.427. The former may not be too important at this week's resort course, but the latter is definitely key, with the average winning score over the past four years at TPC Summerlin at 23-under, you have to make putts. The 28-year-old has played the Shriners the last two years posting a T30 and T18 with all eight rounds at 70 or better, including seven in the 60s.

Hudson Swafford swaggers into TPC Boston ahead of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Georgia Bulldog entered last week's Barclays ranked 100th in the FedExCup standings. He rocketed out to a 4-under start through two days, before giving back five strokes over the weekend. In the end, his birdie on the 72nd hole was good enough to climb to 93rd in FEC points and make this week's field. Swafford remains a threat to breakthrough, but his inability to string together four consistent rounds continues to hold him back in the short term.

Hudson Swafford has twirled a pair of 2-under-par 68s to Open The Barclays and sits three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

At 100th in the FedExCup standings, his first objective this week was crystal clear. Miss the cut and his season is over, but survive and score and he can't be ruled out to win the whole thing. Well, the 27-year-old has responded with 10 birdies against six bogeys at Plainfield thus far. He's totaled 26 scoring opportunities and owned an aggregate strokes gained: putting clip of 5.300 at last check. Today's longest conversion dropped in for bogey from 16'4" at the par-5 16th hole.

Hudson Swafford sets his eyes on Plainfield Country Club ahead of this week's Barclays.

The Georgia Bulldog enters the week directly on the bubble for next week's Deutsche Bank Championship. Currently ranked 100th in the FedExCup standings, he can't afford to have any down-weeks moving forward. Statistically, Swafford is a gamers best friend, ranking 39th in strokes gained: putting, 26th in birdie average, and 16th in ball striking, to list a few bright spots. The results haven't paid dividends yet, but it's just a matter of time for this superbly talented youngster.

Hudson Swafford turns his attention to the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, for this week's Wyndham Championship.

Swafford went T67 in his Wyndham debut last year on rounds of 71-67-73-68. He ranks 89th on TOUR in bogey avoidance and 46th in par-4 scoring. These are two key stats to look at on the par-70 Sedgefield. The Tour grad enters the week 96th in the FedExCup standings having made 16 cuts on 27 starts. His best finish was a T8 at the season-opening back in October. It's his only top-10 finish. The 27-year-old does have six top 25s, but they come few and far between. In his last 10 starts since a T12 at the Zurich Classic at the end of April, he's cashed seven times, but only cracked the top 25 once, a T21 at the Quicken Loans National.

Hudson Swafford missed the cut in his 2014 RBC Canadian Open debut and returns for another crack at it this week.

Swafford gets the benefit of switching venues, as Glen Abbey Golf Club now plays the role of host. The Georgia Bulldog remains a fantasy favorite as his statistical profiles always brings him to the forefront as a potential sleeper. Currently ranking 35th in strokes gained:putting and 69th overall in strokes gained, Swafford is long overdue for another splash of contention.

Hudson Swafford finished inside the top 25 at the 2014 Travelers Championship and finds his way back to TPC River Highlands for another look this week.

The Georgia Bulldog continues his rise to household-name status, but has a long way to go. In fact, he's still trying to earn name recognition from some of the more-regular gamers. Currently ranked 88th in the FedExCup standings, it's time to take a very close look at Swafford this week and the foreseeable future.

Hudson Swafford arrives at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship ranked 84th in the FedExCup standings.

Swafford has posted a roller coaster of a season with five top 20s parlayed with nine missed cuts on the flip side. It's been an all-or-nothing type of career for the Georgia Bulldog who still has more missed cuts (25) than made (20). Looking at Swafford's statistical profile, you will notice high marks all across the board, including 66th in strokes gained and 28th in driving distance. Gamers should have a look at Swafford when looking for a high-upside sleeper this week.

Hudson Swafford added a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post bogey-free, 11-under 133, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Jason Day has since gone one lower to establish the final 36-hole lead.

Swafford created 15 opportunities to score again today, but instead of authoring a highlight-reel eagle, he calmly poured in six conventional birdies, three on each nine. What's more, the only par breaker of any length measured 13'1" at the par-4 16th hole, the antepenultimate of his round. Adding further perspective to his balanced attacked, when he walked off, he ranked outside the top 10 in both strokes-gained splits. It remains to be seen if today's afternoon wave can challenge, but the wind is up a bit as inclement weather from the west encroaches. There is a Tornado Watch for most of southwestern Louisiana through this evening, but it's several parishes from New Orleans.

Hudson Swafford recorded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Swafford pounced on the par 5s at TPC Louisiana today, going 4-under on the quartet with an eagle and two birdies. The eagle was a gift. After his second at No. 18 landed in the rough left of the fairway and 112 yards from the target, he spun his third back into the cup. (You can view the shot at the link below.) His only other notable conversion traveled 13 feet for par at the par-4 15th. Swafford landed 15 greens in regulation on the round and came to a stop just three swings adrift of the overnight co-leaders.

Hudson Swafford has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

Swafford was the sixth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry on a sponsor exemption after Kevin Na withdrew. The 27-year-old PGA TOUR sophomore is a native of Florida and product of the University of Georgia, so he has strong ties to the Southeast. He'll be making his debut at Harbour Town Golf Links. Swafford is 76th in the FedExCup standings.

Hudson Swafford conjured up a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and ends the week at 11-under 277.

Swafford's final navigation of Bay Hill featured four birdies and 14 pars. Highlights included a 10'3" birdie at the par-4 10th and a 15'4" birdie at the par-3 17th. He split 10 of 14 fairways and landed 14 GIR on the afternoon. Should he emerge with a top-10 finish, as it currently appears that he will, it would be his first since a T8 in the Open to start the 2014-15 season.

Hudson Swafford carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

After opening the tournament with a 3-over 75, Swafford rebounded nicely with a 6-under 66 on Friday. After making the turn at 5-over on his opening nine on Thursday, he has played the last 45 holes in 12-under, circling 14 birdies against just two bogeys. After hitting eight (of 14) fairways and just 11 greens in regulation in round one, Swafford has since hit 25 (of 28) fairways and 30 of 36 greens in regulation to move to a 7-under aggregate of 209.

Hudson Swafford hung up a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Swafford went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Copperhead today and promptly bogeyed the par-4, albeit with a conversion from just outside 12 feet. He rallied for five birdies, including four in a row to begin his inward nine. That run included rolls of 18'6" and 12'9" at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively. Swafford arrived needing a spark. After opening the fall with three top 20s, he's gone cold, cashing just twice in eight starts since with no better than a T34 at Pebble Beach.
