This was the South Carolinian's sixth RBC, fifth top 25 and second top 10, joining a playoff loss in 2015. He improves to 8-for-11 on the season with five top 25s and three top 10s. After opening in 69-68-66, the Georgia alum began T6, three short of leader Ian Poulter.

The 34-year-old conjured one birdie, a 23-footer at the par-4 eighth, outbalanced by bogey-5s at 1 and 10 (tee ball in the water).

World No. 25 Kevin Kisner styled a 5-under-par 35-31=66 on Moving Day at the 50th RBC Heritage, up 17 spots on the live leaderboard to T4 on 10-under 203, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead and tying the low round of the day with three others. UPDATE: At the end of play, Kisner is T6, three back of leader Ian Poulter.

The Aiken, South Carolina, native and resident has a runner-up here, a playoff loss in 2015, and has runner-up this season, losing to Bubba Watson in the Match Play Finals 7-and-6. He followed that with a T28 at the Masters, his ninth made cut in a row in majors. After opening his sixth RBC in 69-68, the Georgia alum began T21 on 5-under, two short of the overnight top 10. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.791 strokes off-the-tee and 1.894 around-the-green. The 34-year-old squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 6, outpaced by five conventional birdies at 2, 5, 10, 16 and 18 (from 10'7"), adding a hole-out 3 at the par-4 12th from 54'6" away. He posted 1.583 putts per GIR and 0.926 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. Kisner is looking to become just the second South Carolinian to win the Heritage, joining Wesley Bryan, who did it on debut as a TOUR rookie last year.

32-seed Kevin Kisner got thumped by 35-seed Bubba Watson 7-and-6 in the Finals of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play but leaves with a season-best solo 2nd, his seventh runner-up in 169 career events and second top 10 in 11 WGCs, both runners-up (2nd, 2016 HSBC). UPDATE: Kisner jumps 11 spots to 25th in OWGR.

In the all Georgia alum final, Kisner never factored, losing five straight holes from the get-go -- three with bogeys and one with a concession -- and six of the first seven. He won just one hole, the par-3 11th with birdie from 34'6", but the festivities would (mercifully) end one hole later Watson's birdie-4. The 34-year-old, a pre-tourney 100/1 outright, was a surprise participant in the Finals. His overall Dell Match Play record is now 8-4-1, including a 5-1-1 mark this week, but had zero form entering. The South Carolinian arrived off three missed cuts in his last four starts and a 29th at the no-cut WGC-Mexico. This is his second top 10 of the season in nine starts, first since a T4 the RSM back in October (his season-opener). Kisner easily records his best Dell finish in three tries (each at Austin CC) and is getting progressively better (T17/2017; T38/2016).
Mar 25 - 7:23 PM

In semifinal-action at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, 32-seed Kevin Kisner outlasted 13-seed Alex Noren in 19 holes and advances to the Finals Match against 35-seed and fellow Georgia alum Bubba Watson.

The 34-year-old improves to 5-0-1 (same as Watson) while Noren drops to 5-1-0 and to the 3rd-Place Match against 2-seed Justin Thomas. Kisner is eyeing his third PGA TOUR title (169 events) and first WGC win in 11 tries. This duel was all square thru 16 holes with neither player taking more than a 1 UP advantage. Noren had a golden chance to go 1 UP at the par-3 17th but missed birdie from 10'5". The Swede had another chance to win with a walk-off birdie at 18 from 7'4", but missed again. Kisner twice fought back from 1 DOWN deficits, including winning the par-5 12th with a 51'5" eagle-bomb. He would go on to win the match on the same hole in extra time, draining a 5'1" birdie while Noren missed his from 10'9". Both players were the equivalent of 5-under-par (for 18 holes).
Mar 25 - 2:38 PM

32-seed Kevin Kisner booted 58-seed Ian Poulter 8-and-6 in the Quarterfinals of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and will face off against 13-seed Alex Noren on Sunday morning.

The 34-year-old improves to 4-0-1 and moves to the Semifinals against Noren (5-0-0). Poulter, the 2010 champ at Dove Mtn., exits with a 4-1-0 record for a T5 in his first visit to Austin CC. It's Poulter's first top 10 of the season in seven starts and first since solo 3rd at the 2017 RBC Canadian Open last July. Kisner made sure the Englishman's finish wasn't any better, the beatdown the most lopsided of any match this week. He took a 1 UP lead with a par win at hole 3 and didn't look back, not losing a single hole. The Georgia alum won each of the next four holes, two of those with birdies, and won the ninth with birdie-3, now 6 UP. He won the 10th with par and a conceded hole at the 12th would end the festivities.
Mar 24 - 5:27 PM

32-seed Kevin Kisner outlasted past champion and 16-seed Matt Kuchar 1 UP in Round of 16 action at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and moves on to face 58-seed Ian Poulter.

The 34-year-old, a group stage exit the last two years, improves to 3-0-1 while Kuchar, the 2013 winner at Dove Mtn., departs with a 2-1-1 record. Kisner, a surprise winner out of Group 1, led for 16 holes today against Kuchar and never trailed. He went 1 UP with birdie-3 at No. 1 (from 14'1"), lost the second with bogey and won the third with birdie-3. The Georgia alum went 2 UP with a par win at 4, lost the fifth to Kuchar's first birdie, and the duel stayed that way thru 13 holes, including matching circles at 11, 12 and 13. He took a 2 UP lead with birdie-3 at 14 (19'2"), lost the 15th to Kuchar's birdie, and lost the 17th with bogey, now all square. The South Carolinian walked off with a mid-range birdie winner after Kuchar had missed his try from a little further away.

32-seed Kevin Kisner defeated an already eliminated 1-seed and defending champ Dustin Johnson 4-and-3 in Round 3 on Friday at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and moves on to the Round of 16, where he'll face Group 16 winner and 16-seed Matt Kuchar.

The 34-year-old wins Group 1 with a 2-0-1 record while Johnson, undefeated last year, goes winless (0-3-0). This is his third appearance and first weekend action after a Group Stage exit last year with a 2-1-0 record for a T17. The Georgia alum never trailed in his match against the top-ranked player in the world, quickly moving to a 2 UP lead thru two holes. He went 3 UP with birdie-3 at 5, his third circle on the day, and 4 UP with a par win at 6. Johnson battled back to 2 DOWN with wins at 8 and 10, the latter just his second birdie of the round, but Kisner won the 11th with par and moved back to 4 UP with birdie-3 at 14. The festivities, mercifully for Johnson, ended one hole later.
Mar 23 - 8:14 PM

Kevin Kisner got on the birdie train early, leading to a 5-and-4 stomping of Bernd Wiesberger during round two of the WGC-Match Play, giving Kisner a two-day tally of 1.5 points (1-0-1) which puts him in a share of the lead in Group 1 heading into Friday.

Kisner halved his opening match against Adam Hadwin but today he was tough to match. Opening the day with birdies in five of the first six holes, Kisner found himself 3-up thru 6. The longest of those conversions came from 19'8" at the par-4 third hole. The Georgia Bulldog would coast from there, picking up two more holes before the match ended after 14. With 1.5 points to his credit, Kisner will now take on his old amateur foe, Dustin Johnson in round three.
Mar 22 - 4:16 PM

Kevin Kisner moves to the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge this week looking to make another cut.

Kisner missed the cut in each of his February events, but he rebounded nicely with a 29th-place showing at the WGC-Mexico Championship. He would have been even better in Mexico if not for his final-round 74 which sent him tumbling down the leaderboard. He isn't a bomber off the tee, but his accuracy serves him well. He ranks eighth in Driving Accuracy Percentage (69.97) and 24th in GIR (70.22 percent). Kisner is also 35th in Par 5 Scoring (4.58), and if he continues success in that area he'll be a contender come Sunday.
Mar 14 - 8:55 PM

World No. 31 Kevin Kisner is at Club de Golf Chapultepec for the WGC-Mexico Championship and is grouped the first two rounds with Jhonattan Vegas and Matthew Fitzpatrick. UPDATE: Kisner finished 29th on 3-under 281 (70-71-66-74), 13 back.

The 34-year-old finished 11th last year in the inaugural edition at Club de Golf Chapultepec, chasing an opening 1-over 72 with trip 68s. Overall, this is his 10th career WGC with one prior top 10, a solo 2nd at the 2016 HSBC, where he was a 54-hole co-leader. The Georgia alum is 4-for-6 on the season and is struggling in his last three starts. After opening with three straight top 25s, he was T11 thru 54 holes at the CareerBuilder (68-67-68), before cratering to T50 with a 4-over 76. The South Carolinian hasn't recovered since, missing the cuts at the AT&T Pro-Am and The Honda Classic, a cumulative 14-over-par in his last six rounds.

Kevin Kisner heads to The Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida looking for a turnaround this week.

Kisner started off with a fourth-place finish at The RSM Classic in Georgia back in mid-November, and he has been tumbling down the leaderboard since. He was 12th at the Hero World Challenge, 17th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, 25th at the Sony Open in Hawaii, 50th at the CareerBuilder Challenge and then a missed cut at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Hopefully Kisner has bottomed out and he is ready to ascend again. He has made the cut in each of his first three showings at The Honda Classic, but Kisner has been 48th or worse in each event. Kisner is a risky DFS option until he starts to show a bounce back.
Feb 21 - 5:29 AM

Kevin Kisner coasted to a 6-under-par 33-31=64 during the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, placing him inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard at 8-under 132 with play still in progress.

The Georgia Bulldog had nearly identical day-over-day numbers with nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. He split nine fairways and landed 13 greens on day one. His improvement in the short-game department led to four fewer strokes in R2. Highlights included three birdie putts from outside 14 feet and a par-saver from 10'4". The longest birdie conversion came from 30'2" at the par-3 seventh. At the time he walked off the course he ranked 10th in the field in strokes gained putting. Kisner entered with top 5s in each of his last two trips to Waialae Country Club and he's on pace for a third straight big finish.
Jan 12 - 5:56 PM

World No. 26 Kevin Kisner signed for a 3-under-par 34-36=70 after the second round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions for a two-day total of 6-under 140, down one place to T8 with play still in progress.

The 33-year-old landed 11 (of 15) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.053 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.935 around-the-green. He carded five birdies at holes 5, 8, 10, 14 and 15, taking some luster off with bogeys at 11 and 17 (failed scrambles). Two of the Georgia alum's par breakers were two-putt birdies, adding a long of 12'3" at the par-4 10th. He posted 1.769 putts per GIR and 1.743 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.
Jan 5 - 9:41 PM

Kevin Kisner walked off in style, circling an eagle at the closing hole to piece together a 3-under-par 36-34=70 during round one of the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

The Georgia Bulldog struggled out of the gate with three bogeys and two birdies over the first 10 holes. As the wind calmed down near the end of the round, his score also rebounded. Kisner saved the best for last as he hit one of the best shots of the day at the closing, par-5 18th. After his 347-yard drive he sat 316 yards from the hole. His approach shot flirted with the hole and ended just 8'1" from the cup. He sank that eagle putt to reach 3-under, good for a share of sixth place ahead of round two.
Jan 4 - 10:04 PM

Making his season debut, past champ and World No. 26 Kevin Kisner carved out a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of The RSM Classic to post 14-under 268, up one spot to T4, seven adrift of overnight leader and champion Austin Cook.

This was the 2016 winner's seventh RSM, fourth top 25 and third top 10. After kicking off in 67-68-65, he began in solo 5th on 12-under, six back. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, the Georgia alum found 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.056 strokes around-the-green and 1.501 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 10, offset by three circles at 7, 9 and 11, stalling out with seven consecutive pars. The 33-year-old registered 1.786 putts per GIR and -0.076 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. This is his second straight top-5 finish after ending last season with T3 at the TOUR Championship.
