Kevin Kisner never trailed in his battle against match play stalwart Patrick Reed, walking off Austin Country Club with a 1-up victory to earn his first point at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.
Playing in blustery conditions today, both golfers failed to get much momentum today. There was just seven total birdies between the duo today (Kisner/4 ; Reed/3). One of those birdies came from Kisner on the opening par-4 first, which gave him the lead which he never surrendered all day. Reed did fight back to all square at the 11th and then again at the 16th. With Brooks Koepka starting 2-0-0 in Group 9, Patrick Reed is now eliminated but he will have a chance to play the spoiler role in his third round matchup against Koepka. Kisner will need to knock off Dufner tomorrow and then hope for a win out of Reed. Mar 23 - 3:38 PM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 46 Kevin Kisner stalled out to a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in today's final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 10-under 278, down one place into a two-way T2, one back of champion Marc Leishman, who shot 69.

After opening in 70-67-68, the 33-year-old co-led with Charley Hoffman, three clear of three players, including Leishman. Playing out of the final twosome, he landed 10 (of 14) fairways but just eight greens in regulation, posting a -1.821 SG: Tee-to-Green. The Georgia alum outpaced bogey-5 at eight (failed scramble) with birdies at 4 and 7, both 15-footers, and led by two at the break. He came home in birdie-less 2-over, squaring a 1-putt bogey-6 at 12, and bogey-4 at 14 (failed scramble). The South Carolinian missed his last three GIR, saved pars, but ended up needing a hole-out birdie on 18 from a greenside bunker to tie. This was his third API, with a previous-best T49 (2015), eighth top 25 of the season in nine starts, third top 10. Chasing a second TOUR win in 141 career events (2016 RSM as 54-hole leader), Kisner settles for his fifth career runner-up, first since solo 2nd at the 2016 WGC-HSBC (also as 54-hole co-leader).
Mar 19 - 6:39 PM

World No. 46 Kevin Kisner shot a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 11-under 205, up three places into a tie for the 54-hole lead with overnight pace-setter Charley Hoffman, who shot 71.

After kicking off in 70-67, the 33-year-old began in a three-way T4 on 7-under, three adrift of Hoffman. He pelted 13 (of 14) fairways and conjured 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.726 strokes tee-to-green but losing 1.033 around-the-green. The South Carolinian bogeyed the par-3 second and the par-4 18th, both on failed up-and-downs, circling six birdies in between, five from inside of 11 feet with a long of 18 feet at the par-4 third. The Georgia alum is vying for his second TOUR title in 141 career starts. He won the 2016 RSM Classic as the 54-hole leader by three (after a third-round 6-under 64), and won by six with another 64.

Kevin Kisner bombarded the back nine of Bay Hill Club and Lodge on his way to a 5-under-par 36-31=67 during round two of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, claiming a spot inside the top 10 on 7-under 137.

Kisner eased his way into this round, trading a bogey and a birdie on the outward nine. From there, he rallied to circle six birdies over his final eight holes. The highlight was a hole out from the greenside bunker (62'4") for birdie at the par-3 14th. Kisner gained 2.724 strokes around-the-green and 1.937 strokes putting. This short-game clinic keeps Kisner inside the top 10 heading into the weekend, sitting three strokes off the clubhouse leader Charley Hoffman.
Mar 17 - 6:28 PM

Kevin Kisner steadied a 2-under-par 35-35=70 during the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, placing him in a share of second place after the morning wave comes to an end.

Kisner opened his day on the back nine and found water at his second hole of the day, leading to an early bogey. He bounced back five holes later at the par-5 16th and then holed out from 37 yards for another birdie at the par-4 18th. Coming into the clubhouse, Kisner circled two more birdies to offset one more bogey. From a strokes gained perspective, the Georgia Bulldog gained 2.36 (of 4.08 total) around-the-green. Making his third appearance at the Palmer Invite, Kisner is looking to improve upon his career best here, a T49 in his 2015 debut.
Mar 16 - 2:26 PM

World No. 48 Kevin Kisner carded his third straight 3-under lap with a final-round 32-36=68 for a four-day tally of 8-under 276, currently in 11th-place at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship.

This was the 33-year-old's second appearance (T23/2016) and seventh overall WGC with one prior top 10, a solo 2nd at the 2016 HSBC Champions. After opening in 72-68-68, he began on 5-under (T16), seven back of 54-hole leader Justin Thomas. The Georgia alum landed seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.714 putts per GIR and 2.057 SG: Putting. He was bogey-free 4-under thru 15 holes, circling Nos. 6, 7, 9 and 12, before suffering a lone bogey-5 at 16. For the week, the South Carolinian totaled 15 birdies versus seven bogeys and posts his fourth top 25 of the season in eight starts and possibly a third top 10.
Mar 5 - 5:34 PM

World No. 47 Kevin Kisner signed for a 4-under-par 33-33=66 after the third round of The Honda Classic and reached the three-quarter mark on 6-under 204, up 18 places to T10 with play still in progress.

This is the 33-year-old's third appearance with a T51 on debut in 2015 and T70 last year on 9-over 289 (72-71-70-76). In those previous eight laps, he recorded just one red number, a 68 in 2015/R2. The South Carolinian has figured out PGA National's Champion Course so far this year, opening in twin 69s and today's six-birdie two-bogey effort. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.198 strokes tee-to-green. The Georgia alum circled five conventional, all from inside of 11 feet, tacking on a 30-footer from the fringe for birdie-3 at 12.

World No. 48 Kevin Kisner crafted a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to wrap up on 8-under 279, up six spots on the live leaderboard to T10.

Three days shy of his 33rd birthday (Feb. 15th), this was clearly a case of recent form for Kisner. He was making his fifth appearance with previous cashes of T64/MDF in 2014 and T39 on debut in 2011. The Georgia alum arrived off T25 three weeks ago at the CareerBuilder and a season-best T4 at the Sony. He began each nine with bogey-5s but erased them with five birdies, including four birdies in a five-hole stretch on Nos. 2-6. For the week, the South Carolinian carded one eagle and 16 birdies against 10 bogeys.
Feb 12 - 5:16 PM

World No. 51 Kevin Kisner styled a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to polish off his sixth appearance on 18-under 262, up two places into a two-way T4, nine in arrears to overnight leader and champion Justin Thomas.

The 32-year-old, fresh off a career-low 60, was blemish-free for a second straight lap and overall, played his final 39 holes in bogey-free 18-under. He was one (of 13) players to make the 36-hole cut on the number, jumping 66 spots over his final two rounds. The South Carolinian records his second straight top 10 at Waialae CC (T5/2016), his best finish on TOUR since then, and his first top 10 since closing last year's regular season with a T10 at the Wyndham. For the week, the Georgia alum circled 23 birdies and one eagle against seven bogeys and posted rounds of 70-67-60-65. He was T35 in greens in regulation at 72.22 percent (52/72), but was No. 1 in SG: Around-the-Green at 5.546.
Jan 16 - 12:25 AM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 51 Kevin Kisner fired a 10-under-par 30-30=60 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach the three-quarter mark on 13-under 197, up 66 spots to T4 with play still in progress and good for the low round of the day.

The 32-year-old had a 9'2" putt at the par-5 ninth for a walk-off eagle and a 59, but it slid by on the right, settling for a career best in his 435th career round, previously 63 two times. After opening his sixth appearance with a 70, he eagled this very par 5 in R2 for a 67 to make the cut on the number. The 32-year-old, T5 here last year, landed nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, circling seven conventional birdies, adding a 16-footer from the fringe for birdie-3 at the 14th, a 34-footer from off the green at the par-3 17th, and a 24-footer from the fringe at the par-4 eighth (using the flat stick). Kisner's 60 was 8.329 strokes better than the field average.
Jan 14 - 10:34 PM

Kevin Kisner makes his way back to Sea Island Golf Club for a chance to defend his title at this week's RSM Classic.

The Georgia Bulldog lapped the field here last year, finishing the week six shots clear of runner-up Kevin Chappell. Kisner was dialed in right from the start, styling a blemish-free 7-under 65 on the Plantation Course to kick off his week. He swallowed just one bogey in each of R2 and R3 before posting another bogey-free round in the finale. On the week he circled 22 birdies and one eagle. On the down side, his form was a bit better last year as he arrived with a runner-up finish just two weeks prior (WGC-HSBC) while currently he's on a streak of six straight events without a top 25. With top 30s in five of six RSM starts, Kisner makes for a great fantasy pick in all formats.

After a runner-up finish last year, Kevin Kisner returns to Shanghai, China, this week for a second try at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

In his HSBC debut, Kisner posted rounds of 64→66→70→70 to finish at 18-under 270, two strokes off the winner's pace (Russell Knox, 20-under). The Georgia Bulldog held the 36-hole lead and 54-hole co-lead but his scores gradually got worse as the week went on. A runner-up finish is still nice, however you slice it. Kisner opened his 2016-17 campaign last week with a T26 at the CIMB Classic. The 32-year-old finished last season ranked 35th in birdie or better percentage, making him a very appealing option to DFS gamers primarily in need of birdies and eagles.

Kevin Kisner concocted an even-par 34-36=70 during round two of the TOUR Championship, entering the weekend in third place on 3-under 137, four off the leader Dustin Johnson.

The Georgia Bulldog opened the round in style, splashing home a 19'6" birdie on the difficult par-4 first. It was one of just six birdies surrendered by the hole this week. The 32-year-old struggled tee-to-green, losing 2.376 strokes to the field, but gained 2.555 strokes putting to make up ground. That included three more putts from outside nine feet (after the opening bomb). Kisner will enter the weekend in a share of third place, four strokes off the pace with a chance to pick up his second win in the state of Georgia (2016 RSM Classic).

Georgia Bulldog Kevin Kisner breezed through East Lake Golf Club en route to a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during the opening round of the TOUR Championship, throwing his name into the mix early in the week.

Kisner entered the week ranked 19th in the FedExCup race but has found just one top 15 over his last 10 starts. The 32-year-old split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens to keep the birdie chances flowing all day. He converted four of them and arrived on the 17th tee box with a bogey-free round still intact. It was there he swallowed his lone bogey off the day after finding the rough on his first two shots of the hole. Despite the late blemish, Kisner overcome very tough scoring conditions at East Lake and will enter round two inside the top five.

Kevin Kisner enjoyed a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the BMW Championship to wrap his second appearance on 4-under 284, up 20 places to T39 with play still in progress.

The University of Georgia alum entered the week 17th in the FedExCup standings and while projecting to drop two spots, he's safely on to East Lake GC in Atlanta for a second straight year. Last year, he finished 28th (of 28) so he'll obviously be looking to improve on that. The 32-year-old began the finale on 1-over (T59) after opening in progressively worse laps of 70-73-74. He circled five birdies on 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 2.152 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 7.745. Unfortunately, Kisner is 63rd (of 69) in SG: Tee-to-Green on the week at -8.345, though 1.851 in R4.
