Kevin Kisner spun a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to post 18-under 266, and then lost on the second playoff hole to Jim Furyk.
The 31-year-old came oh-so-close to becoming the first South Carolinian to win the tournament in its 47-year history. Kisner came to the 18th hole needing birdie to force a playoff and he delivered, calmly sinking a 6'8" putt to go to extra time. He buried a mid-range birdie on the same green on the first hole of the playoff, but his try for birdie on the par-3 17th never threatened, thus opening the door for Furyk to take the title. Kisner entered the final round three shots off the overnight lead. To show he meant business, he eagled the par-5 second, holing out from eight yards right of the hole. He added another chip-in for birdie on the par-5 fifth and followed with his first actual birdie putt of the round on the par-4 sixth. Kisner stagnated in the middle of the round with pars on Nos. 7-13, but circled back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15 to set the stage for his clutch birdie on the last. His consolation is a career-best finish on the PGA TOUR. Apr 19 - 3:25 PM

Kevin Kisner added a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of the RBC Heritage to post 11-under 202, and sits three shots back of the 54-hole leader.

Kisner surgically found the fairway 12 (of 14) times, hit 14 greens in regulation and went 4-for-4 in scrambling on the day. The Aiken, South Carolina, native took advantage of both par fives on the front including a conversion from the greenside-bunker on the fifth hole. He kept his card spotless scrambling successfully each of the three times he missed the green on his outward half and one last time on the par-4 12th. Kisner added birdies on the par-4 13th and the par-3 17th, dropping each from inside of eight feet. There may be a touch of disappointment as he stood over 14 par breakers but converted on only four.

Kevin Kisner kept it floored in today's second round of the RBC Heritage, posting a 4-under-par 33-34=67 and reach the midpoint in 7-under 135.

Kisner found the short grass 11 (of 14) times off the tee and stood over 13 opportunities to break par. He did so six times, all for birdies. The set included conversions from 43'11" at the par-3 seventh hole and 14'2" at the par-4 ninth. The second of his two bogeys was a three-putt from just 15 feet at the par-3 17th. The University of Georgia product signed his card sitting five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Kevin Kisner toured Harbour Town Golf Links in 3-under-par 32-36=68 to establish the early clubhouse lead.

He went out in the second threesome off the 10th tee this morning and traded four birdies with just one bogey. He landed only 10 greens in regulation, so it's the kind of combination of factors that you're going to see with many this week. Kisner's bonus to gamers is that of a greenside magician, so it's not surprising to see him in the hunt on Thursday. His most notable par breaker dropped from 19'5" at the par-3 17th hole. It anchored three consecutive birdies. He started the week sitting 103rd in the FedExCup standings, but he's just 5-for-10 in 2015 with no top 25s.

Kevin Kisner opened the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 3-under-par 34-35=69, posting up just two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

Benefited by the withdrawal of fellow University of Georgia product Bubba Watson on Wednesday (due to the death of another Bulldog, David Miller, to whom the lefty will pay his respects instead of competing at Bay Hill), Kisner made the most of the opportunity today. He traded five birdies with a pair of bogey-4s. The set consisted of conversions from 37'5", 45'8" and 15'2" at Nos. 14, 3 and 6, respectively.
Mar 19 - 4:03 PM

Kevin Kisner has been handed Bubba Watson's tee time in the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Kisner started the week as 10th alternate, and then rose to sixth after four early withdrawals. Fabian Gomez was first alternate, but he and the next four must have declined the opportunity to compete. So, Kisner will be making his debut in the tournament. He's coming off a T60 at Copperhead and hasn't cracked the top 50 in his last eight starts. However, because of a strong start in the fall, the 31-year-old sits 111th in the FedExCup standings. He's scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 8:11 a.m. ET with Adam Scott and Brooks Koepka.

Kevin Kisner returns to the Valspar Championship after missing the cut in his debut last year.

It's been a rough go of it for Kisner in 2015. After a nice run in the 2014 portion of the 2014-15 schedule, he's failed to crack the top 50 in 2015. In fact, he's missed four of his six cuts. Known for being a difficult layout, the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort is typically not a place for one to find their game.
Mar 10 - 8:43 PM

Kevin Kisner takes his talents to this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The University of Georgia product hoisted the hardware here at the 2013 non-tour event, the Callaway Pebble Beach Invitational. His track record at this particular event is less impressive, boasting two cuts made in three attempts with nothing better than a T39 finish. Entering the week on the heels of two straight missed cuts, Kisner could certainly use a bounce back here.

Kevin Kisner signed for an even-par 35-35=70 after his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Well, whatever forced him to withdraw during the Sanderson Farms Championship and early from the trip to México the week after may forever be a mystery. It's good to see him back inside the ropes at Waialae where he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. Those are impressive totals on a track that's still quite scorable. His longest conversion of the day was his only birdie, a roll from 22'1" at the par-4 fifth hole. Kisner also saved par from 19'1" at the par-4 15th where his approach found a greenside bunker.

Kevin Kisner is scheduled to compete in next week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

He's been out since calling it quits 27 holes into the Sanderson Farms Championship two months ago. An explanation was never released and he didn't share anything concerning it on Twitter. Kisner is 0-for-3 at par-70 Waialae Country Club. He failed to break 72 until reeling in a 68 in the second round last year. So, while the overall record is poor and while the reasoning for his WD in Mississippi remains a mystery, we shouldn't sleep on the former Georgia Bulldog given he has five top 25s in his last eight starts. That stretch includes a T4 at the McGladrey Classic in the fall.
Jan 9 - 7:39 PM

Kevin Kisner secured three of his four cuts to begin the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, including a tie for fourth at The McGladrey Classic.

Kisner seems to have finally found his footing on the PGA TOUR after several seasons of bouncing back and forth between the PGA TOUR and the Tour. In fact, his current trend is similar to that of another University of Georgia product's this time last year. Brendon Todd offered glimpses of what would prove to be a big 2013-14 season late in 2013, and Kisner is following suit. Kisner finished 2013-14 ranked 104th in the FedExCup standings but is already 31st in this season's FEC race. Don't be surprised to see Kisner break through in the near future.

Kevin Kisner withdrew from the Sanderson Farms Championship during his second round.

No explanation has been released by the PGA TOUR. Kisner started on the back side of the Country Club of Jackson today, and then called it quits at the turn. He was 4-over-par on the round with bogeys on each of his last five holes and sat 6-over through 27 with a long way to go to find paydirt. This is his first mid-tournament WD in 79 PGA TOUR starts. It's a disappointing result given his arc entering the week, especially coming off a career-best T4 at The McGladrey Classic. UPDATE: Kisner later alerted his followers on Twitter that he had withdrawn from next week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Indeed, he doesn't appear in the published field, so we won't see him again until 2015.

Kevin Kisner smoothed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his final round of The McGladrey Classic and posted 12-under 268.

He curled in a 12-footer for par at the par-4 18th to settle two strokes off the 72-hole clubhouse lead. Kisner missed only three (of 14) fairways and three greens in regulation en route to five birdies today. The only par breaker of notable length disappeared from 12-and-a-half feet at the par-4 16th. While he won't be collecting his first trophy on the PGA TOUR, the University of Georgia product will chalk up his fifth top 10 in 78 career starts. The four-way T4 is a career best.

Kevin Kisner is 7-under-par 69-68-66=203 through three rounds of The McGladrey Classic and sits two strokes back of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Believe it or not, the University of Georgia still has non-winners with PGA TOUR cards. Erik Compton and Hudson Swafford rush to mind as former Bulldogs still chasing a trophy, but don't sleep on Kisner. He's been one of the best putters on the circuit since his rookie season of 2011. He spent 2013 on the Tour, but that's shaping up to be a mere speed bump in the long-term. Today at Seaside, he circled five birdies, including a nine-yarder from just off the green at the par-4 13th hole.

Kevin Kisner enjoyed a 6-under-par 35-30=65 in his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Exempt from the reshuffle for the first time, Kisner is wasting little time taking advantage of his new status. He's best known as a terrific putter, which was on display at TPC Summerlin today. He buried eight birdies, three of which conventionally from outside 12 feet. That set featured conversions from 33'3" and 21'7" at the par-4 12th and seventh holes, respectively. He also recorded zero-putt birdies from 17 and 19 yards, respectively, at Nos. 4 and 8. Kisner opened his round with a par save from 11'4" at the par-4 10th and salvaged bogey with a 16'8" roll one hole later. When he signed his card at 7-under 135, he was two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. His strokes gained: putting clip for the round sat at 3.784 at last check.
