Kevin Kisner looks to break out of a slump as he wanders into familiar territory at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.
Kisner is no stranger to the Charlotte area, as his parents grew up here and his brother-in-law is a member at Quail Hollow Club. Entering the event with six straight stroke-play finishes outside the top 20, this could be a nice landing spot for a rebound. Kisner is not long off the tee (126th in driving distance) but his local knowledge could provide what he needs in order to replicate his T6 from the 2014 edition. May 4 - 8:14 AM

Aiken, South Carolina, native and resident Kevin Kisner makes the 20-mile drive to Augusta, Georgia, for his debut at the 80th Masters.

The University of Georgia alum has led/co-led events this season a TOUR-leading six times. In November, he led the WGC-HSBC thru 36 and co-led after 54, before finishing runner-up for a fourth career time. Two weeks later, he topped The RSM Classic after 18 and 54 holes, respectively, en route to a breakthrough title and a tourney-record 22-under 260. In his next full-field event, he co-led the Sony after opening with a career-best 63 before 66-66-70 and T5. The 32-year-old has been out-of-sorts since, posting one red number in is his last 12 rounds, missing two cuts, and getting bounced in the Group Stage at Match Play with a 1-2-0 record.

Kevin Kisner cruised to a 2 & 1 victory over Soren Kjeldsen on his professional match play debut at the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Kisner's career had not previously taken him into the perilous waters of head-to-head golf, but at no stage did he ever look lost at sea in his first match. After a 5'6" birdie conversion on the first he tapped in for another red number on the second to be quickly 2 up. The Dane pegged one back with a birdie on three, only for Kisner to convert a third birdie (and hole win) from 6'2" on No. 4 and a fourth by driving the green on the par-4 5th before two-putting to move 3 up. The game ebbed and flowed for a while until Kisner drained a birdie on No. 14 from 10'7" to go 4 up. Kjeldsen is a gritty type and responded with two unanswered birdies, but he was chasing the game and after halving 16 and 17 he had to accept defeat. Kisner will play fellow day 1 winner Rafa Cabrera-Bello next up. Kjeldsen faces a showdown with Hideki Matsuyama.

After three straight birdies on Nos. 3-5, FedExCup leader Kevin Kisner was 3-under total but played his last 13 holes in birdie-less 5-over and at 2-over 144, missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open by two strokes.

Course form (CUT/2015, T55/2012) won this week. Kisner's season form showed first- and second-round scoring averages both at 66.67, so those will suffer a bit after 71 and 73 (33-40) in Scottsdale. His 36-hole stats show T90 in greens in regulation and T94 in strokes gained: putting en route to six birdies (three in each round), against eight bogeys. Joining Kisner on the bench are: 143- Kevin Streelman ... 144- Justin Thomas ... 145- 2007 champ Aaron Baddeley; David Lingmerth; 2010 champ Hunter Mahan; Tony Finau; Jason Dufner ... 146- Graham DeLaet; Jamie Lovemark; Fabian Gomez; Smylie Kaufman ... 154- Jack Maguire (pro debut).

Kevin Kisner settled for an even-par 37-34=71 in the opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

The FedExCup leader erased three birdies with three late bogeys for his final tally. He went off No. 10 tee and kicked off with a two-putt birdie at the par-5 13th before adding an 11-footer at the par-4 18th to turn 2-under. Kisner had three other semi-realistic scoring chances from the 14-foot range on his inward half, but none found the cup. The 31-year-old, who celebrates his birthday in 11 days (Feb. 15th), added a three-footer at the par-5 third before squaring three bogeys over his final five holes, all failed scrambles. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways, but mustered just 13 greens in regulation.
Feb 4 - 6:09 PM

Kevin Kisner bobbed and weaved to an even-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to wrap his fifth appearance at 15-under 265, down two places on the day and into a two-way tie for fifth.

Kisner's even-par loop today snaps his TOUR-leading sub-par round streak at 15. After opening in 63, he co-lead with four others after day one. He stayed within striking distance with 66-66, sitting solo second and solo third after 36 and 54 holes, respectively. The 31-year-old, in pursuit of his second TOUR title in his last three starts (RSM), fell off the pace in the finale, offsetting four birdies with a pair of doubles, including a devastating double bogey-5 on the 71st hole of the tourney. For the week, Kisner had one eagle, 21 birdies and four bogeys. He led the field in driving accuracy at 47 of 56 (83.93 percent), and also on the good side, posted his fourth straight top 10 on TOUR and completed 72 holes at Waialae CC for the first time.
Jan 17 - 10:15 PM

Kevin Kisner signed for a 4-under-par 32-34=66 after the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach the three-quarter pole at 15-under 195, one shot back of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Blair and Brandt Snedeker.

Kisner began Saturday's play in solo second after opening in 63-66, one shy of 36-hole leader Snedeker. Grouped with Snedeker for the third straight round, he ended the day down one place to solo third, but will play out of the final threesome once again come Sunday's finale. The 31-year-old missed scoring chances at 1 and 2 from inside 11 feet, before back-to-back birdies at 4 and 5 from 12'7" and 13'5", respectively. He added a two-footer and nine to turn 3-under. The Georgia Bulldog joined the lead on 15-under with a 35-foot bomb at the par-4 13th but squared his lone bogey at the par-3 17th after airmailing the green and failing to get up-and-down. He concluded with a four-footer for birdie-4 at the 18th and after 54 holes, leads the field in driving accuracy at 85.71 percent (36/42), including 12 (of 14) on Saturday.

Overnight co-leader Kevin Kisner chased his opening 63 with a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, down one spot on the live leaderboard to solo second.

Kisner reached the midpoint at 11-under 129, one back of playing partner Brandt Snedeker, who shot 65 today. He began day two off No. 10 tee in a five-way share of the 18-hole lead, Sneds included, and outpaced two bogeys with four birdies and a walk-off eagle-3 from 12'1" at the par-5 ninth. Elsewhere, the 31-year-old converted three scoring chances from less than five feet and dropped a 10-footer at the par-5 18th. His two retreats came the results of missed greens, two of four on the day, and included a missed par putt from 5'1" at the par-4 third. Thru 36 holes, he's peppered 24 (of 28) fairways for an 85.71 percent clip, currently T1 in that category.
Jan 15 - 5:48 PM

Kevin Kisner picked apart Waialae Country Club with a 7-under-par 31-32=63 to open strong at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Kisner arrived as a classic example of current form versus course history. He was playing great but sported a 1-for-4 record at Waialae CC, with his one payday being an 84th-place MDF. The Georgia Bulldog flipped the script today by striping 13 (of 14) fairways, putting himself in great position to score. Kisner took advantage of those opportunities by gaining 3.456 strokes with the putter, thanks to the six putts rolled in from outside seven feet. His previous low at Waialae was a 3-under 67, so this easily goes in the books as his best.
Jan 14 - 10:12 PM

FedExCup leader Kevin Kisner bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to wrap his tourney debut at 16-under 276, down three places on the day.

Kisner began the finale in a four-way T6 after opening in 69-65-71. His pair of 71s on the weekend saw a steady decline from T2 after 36 holes to his eventual landing spot of solo ninth. The 31-year-old was all over the map on Sunday, recording just one par over a first nine that saw three bogeys, one double, and four birdies. He steadied the ship on his inward nine with circles on Nos. 11, 13, 15 and 16, but failed to get up-and-down for par on 17 for his fourth bogey of the round. In total, the Georgia Bulldog hit just 12 greens in his final frame and swallowed two penalty strokes en route to a -2.834 mark in strokes gained: tee-to-green. He did enough however, to log his third top 10 of the season (five starts) and maintain his lead in the FedExCup race.
Jan 11 - 12:08 AM

Kevin Kisner back-pedaled to a 2-under-par 35-36=71 in today's third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to post 14-under 205, down four spots on the day to T6.

Kisner played out of the final pairing in round three of his last start at the RSM, extending his lead to three and eventually winning by six, the largest margin in tourney history. Today, he once again found himself in the final pairing in the third round, this time though, with World No. 1 Jordan Spieth, whom he trailed by four entering the day. The 31-year-old Hyundai first-timer mustered but three birdies against one bogey to drop 10 back of Spieth, who bettered him by six. We'll chalk this one up to a learning experience for Kisner, who netted just the three par breakers on 14 scoring opportunities. He ranked first in the field in strokes gained: putting entering round three, but swallowed a -1.857 mark on Saturday, including three missed birdie putts from inside of seven feet.
Jan 9 - 9:29 PM

Kevin Kisner fired a bogey-free 8-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions for a two-day total of 12-under 134, currently T2 on the live leaderboard.

Kisner won his maiden title in his last start seven weeks ago at the RSM. In an all Georgia Bulldog pairing with Bubba Watson today, he bested his partner by three and equaled the low round of the tourney thus far (Patrick Reed/R1). The 31-year-old hit 11 (of 15) fairways for a second consecutive day, and found 15 greens in regulation. He's currently T12 in strokes gained: tee-to-green but ranks first in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative mark of 5.094 at the time he signed his card. Kisner circled six on the card, including three straight on Nos. 10-12. Four dropped from between 11 and 20 feet and added a 28-foot eagle on the par-5 fifth.
Jan 8 - 9:19 PM

Kevin Kisner dropped six birdies on his way to a 4-under-par 33-36=69 in the first round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Making his course debut, a few mistakes here and there were to be expected. Kisner three-putted from 11'3" to settle for bogey on the par-4 12 hole. Not a huge shocker when you consider the difficulty of the greens here at The Plantation Course. With a little course history now under his belt, gamers should look forward to three more rounds of par-breaking goodness from the Georgia Bulldog.
Jan 7 - 11:11 PM

Kevin Kisner slots in at No. 17 in the Official World Golf Ranking ahead of his debut at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Maui.

In his last start six weeks ago, the 31-year-old crushed the competition with his six-shot romp at The RSM Classic to book his trip to Hawaii. He broke the tourney record by four on rounds of 65-67-64-64. In his prior event, he finished solo second at the WGC-HSBC Champions, his fourth runner-up finish in 2015. The Georgia Bulldog concluded last season a career-best 21st in the FedExCup standings although it did end on a sour note, finishing DFL at the 28-man TOUR Championship, 27 shots back of champion Jordan Spieth.

In his 109th career PGA TOUR start and fifth tournament appearance, overnight leader Kevin Kisner fired a bogey-free, 6-under-par 30-34=64 in today's final round of The RSM Classic, shattering the tournament record by four at 22-under 260 and winning his maiden title by six over Kevin Chappell.

After opening in 65, 67 and 64, respectively, Kisner began the finale with a three-shot lead over Chappell, the 36-hole leader. Playing in the final threesome with Chappell and last week's winner Graeme McDowell, the Georgia Bulldog pushed the margin to four with birdie-3 at the second. He extended to five with back-to-back birdies at the par-4 fourth from 10'1" and the par-5 fifth from 15'1". Kisner went for the par-5 seventh in two and ended up in a waste area. He blasted out, chipped on, and then calmly dropping an 8'3" par putt to keep the momentum. He went back-to-back again at Nos. 8 and 9, the latter from 31'5", giving him seven one-putts over his first nine holes and six clear at the turn. The 31-year-old's final tally came via a two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th. Four times a runner-up, the breakthrough win gains Kisner exemptions into the 2016 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.
