After a T54 in last year's tournament debut, Jon Curran wrapped his second appearance at The RSM Classic with a final-round 4-under-par 33-33=66 and a 72-hole aggregate of 13-under 269, nine in arrears to champion Kevin Kisner.
It's not his career best, that would be a P2 at the 2015 Puerto Rico Open, but it's his second best and he pockets $273,500 for his efforts. The second-year man heads to the holiday break with three straight cashes and trending in the right direction with T53-T29 and this week's top-5 finish. Curran circled five on the card in the finale on 15 greens in regulation. All were from outside 13 feet with four traveling greater than 20 feet. His lone bogey came at the par-4 10th after failing to get up-and-down. For the week, the 28-year-old was T4 in both strokes gained stats, including first in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative mark of 7.459. He capped the stellar week with the flat stick by dropping an 11-footer at the last for par, securing solo fourth. Nov 22 - 6:28 PM

Jon Curran crafted a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to reach the three-quarter mark at 9-under 203, currently T7 on the leaderboard.

Now in his second season on the PGA TOUR, Curran was the last of nine rookies to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs last season, eventually finishing 113th in FEC points. His season best on 28 starts was a five-man playoff loss at the Puerto Rico Open. The sophomore opened 2015-16 with two missed cuts and chased with T53 at the CIMB in Malayasia and T29 last week in México so he was trending in the right direction. Curran began Saturday's play at 5-under (T21) and six adrift after opening in 67-70. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation for a third consecutive day, circling six, including two from between 34 and 36 feet. The 28-year-old currently ranks first in the field in putts per GIR with a stellar 1.590 mark, and at last check, was T2 in total birdies with 21. He went T54 in his tournament debut last year.

After finishing T54 last season, Jon Curran contests his second RSM Classic this week in Saint Simons Island, Georgia.

Curran was the last (of nine) rookies to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs last season and was bounced after a missed cut at The Barclays, eventually finishing 113th in FEC points. He made 14 cuts and missed 14 cuts, but was buoyed by five top 10s, highlighted by a five-man playoff loss at the Puerto Rico Open. The 28-year-old added two more top 10s post-PRO, including a T10 at the Travelers, but finished the season missing five of his last seven cuts and nothing better than T37 (Barracuda). He began 2015-16 with two missed cuts and chased with T53 (CIMB) and T29 at last week's OHL.

Jon Curran collides with TPC Summerlin at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Curran posted a 70-75 duet last year at TPC Summerlin to miss the cut in his Shriners debut. He went on to collect five top 10s on the season, in 28 tries. These top-heavy finishes were good enough to land him at 113th in the FedExCup race. It's always impressive to see a rookie make the Playoffs in their first season on TOUR, so gamers should certainly keep their eye on Curran moving forward.

PGA TOUR rookie Jon Curran prepares for his debut at The Barclays in Edison, New Jersey, and enters the fray 105th in the FedExCup standings.

Nine rookies qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs and Curran slots in at third-to-last among his fellow first-timers. On the season, he's deposited 14 paychecks and failed to make the weekend 13 times. Noteworthy, as in his 14 cashes, five have gone for top 25s, with all five doubling as top 10s. So when he's on, he's on. His season best is a P2 at the Puerto Rico Open in early March, followed by a T6 at the AT&T Byron Nelson at the end of May. He chased the Byron Nelson with a T10 three weeks later at the Travelers to bump to 81st in the FEC standings, but has missed four cuts in his last six events since, cashing a T79/MDF and a T37 to slide outside the top 100 in points. The 28-year-old's strong suit is driving accuracy, ranked 30th on TOUR, but sits outside the top 100 in the majority of the main statistical categories.

Jon Curran turns his attention to Sedgefield Country Club for this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Vanderbilt product arrives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with a 14-for-26 record during his rookie campaign. When he's been good, he's been really good, collecting five top 10s thus far. The high finishes put him in a safe position entering the FedExCup Playoffs, currently ranked 101st in the standings. There are more consistent options for gamers, but Curran makes for a nice boom-or-bust selection this week.
Aug 19 - 8:14 AM

Jon Curran is back in action after a week of rest, ready to take on Glen Abbey at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie arrives in Ontario ranked 93rd in the FedExCup race. He is just 12-for-23 on the season, but applies the damage in large chunks, collecting a handful of top 10s already. His statistics look bland at first sight, but he does rank top 30 in driving accuracy, scrambling, and proximity to the hole. Given his early track record, Curran makes for a great boom-or-bust option.
Jul 21 - 8:15 AM

Jon Curran tossed up a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude at 10-under 270, good for a five-way tie for 10th place.

Curran, a rookie on the PGA TOUR, began the day at 9-under (T8) and five off the pace of the 54-hole lead. The native New Englander outpaced two bogeys with three birdies en route to his T10, down two spots on the day, but enough to record his fifth top 10 on 21 starts to his season. The 28-year-old, playing in his second Travelers (MC, 2013), was 3-under on the day thru 14 holes and 12-under total, but dropped shots on consecutive holes at 15 and 16. Two knee-knockers from just outside four feet dropped for pars at 17 and 18 to secure the top-10 finish.

Jon Curran signed for a 1-under-par 34-34=68 after today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with his 12-under 265 good for a share of sixth place.

Curran began the day in a five-way tie for second and two shots adrift of the 54-hole lead. The 28-year-old was in the penultimate grouping with fellow rookie Jonathan Randolph and the veteran Jimmy Walker. Curran could not mount a charge, covering one bogey with just two birdies. Still, a hugely successful debut highlighted by a second-round 63, and a share of the 36-hole lead. In the end, he would not best his P2-finish from earlier this year at the Puerto Rico Open, but he would add his fourth top 10 on the season.
May 31 - 6:54 PM

Overnight co-leader Jon Curran rallied to a 2-under-par 37-30=67 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and is part of a five-way tie for second at 11-under 197.

Curran began his third round in a three-way tie for the lead at 9-under with Jimmy Walker and Steven Bowditch, and after his efforts trails Bowditch by two heading into the final frame. Playing in the final group, the PGA TOUR rookie struggled at the outset, squaring bogeys on Nos. 3 and 9 to turn in 2-over 37. After exchanging a birdie on 11 with a dropped shot on 13, the 28-year-old responded with four par breakers over his last five holes to storm back into contention. Curran, a winner at the 2014 Brasil Champions on the Tour, is looking for a break-through victory on the main TOUR in his 24th-career start.
May 30 - 10:22 PM

Jon Curran chased his opening 67 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 6-under-par 29-34=63 in today's second round to post 9-under 130 at the break, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Curran will hold the overnight lead with Steven Bowditch and Jimmy Walker, but Tony Finau may catch or pass when play resumes on Saturday morning. Finau is 7-under through 34 holes.

No need to adjust your device as overall par today is 69. As we relayed earlier, the 14th hole is being played as a 104-yard par 3. It's a 406-yard par 4 on the scorecard but unplayable conditions in the fairway precluded its traditional setup. It's also precluded the access to data beyond scoring, such as fairways hit, greens in regulation and measurements of all shots. But we do know that Curran buried eight birdies at TPC Four Seasons today, including a 2 at No. 14. He also squared a pair of bogey-5s on his inward nine.
May 29 - 4:14 PM

Jon Curran fashioned a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas is yielding some low scores today, so Curran has to be pleased to walk off without a blemish, but he connected on only three of 16 scoring chances. The set of birdies featured conversions from 10'1" and 20'8" at Nos. 1 and 13, respectively, and he fanned on just one look inside 10 feet, so this was arguably as low as he could have gone, anyway. The rookie signed his card sitting five shots back of the clubhouse lead. He's still in pursuit of his first top-30 finish since the playoff loss in Puerto Rico in early March.
May 28 - 6:19 PM

Jon Curran enjoyed a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The rookie has been scuffling since his playoff loss in Puerto Rico (early March), but today's aggregate is actually his lowest in over three months. In today's debut at Colonial, he went 4-for-5 in scrambling with a bogey and countered with three birdies. Curran's set included respective conversions from 19'6" and 25'5" at Nos. 13 and 3. He also poured in a par save from 25'6" at the par-4 18th where he short-sided his approach. He's four shots back of the clubhouse lead.
May 21 - 4:34 PM

Jon Curran makes his first visit to the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and enters the week 106th in the FedExCup standings.

Curran boasts three top-10 finishes on 17 starts in his PGA TOUR rookie campaign but has also missed more cuts (9) than he's made (8). The 36-year-old registered a season-best P2 at the Puerto Rico Open back in March, coming out on the losing end of a five-man playoff. Curran has not played the weekend in two of his last three starts and shot 73-71-76 to finish 81/MDF at last week's Wells Fargo Championship.
May 20 - 8:34 AM

Jon Curran is in the published field at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and the Tour grad sits 13th on the reshuffle list.

Curran has one previous start at TPC Louisiana (2013) but missed the cut by three carding 74-71. The 27-year-old rookie has three top 10s in 15 TOUR starts on the season and ranks 90th in FedExCup points. He's regressed since his latest top 10 (P2, Puerto Rico Open) registering T40-T44-MC in his last three starts.
