Second-round co-leader and World No. 45 Kevin Kisner erased a 3-shot deficit with 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to finish up on 10-under 270, good for a 1-shot win over defender Jordan Spieth, Sean O'Hair and Jon Rahm, and improving to 1-for-2 when leading/co-leading after 36 holes.
The 33-year-old claims his second PGA TOUR title in his 148th career event, joining his 6-shot win at the 2016 RSM Classic 39 starts ago where he was the 54-hole leader. He wins the DDI in his fourth try and is a third straight top 10 (T10/2016, T5/2015). The South Carolinian records a ninth top 25 of the season in 16 starts and fifth top 10, brushing aside a T2 at Bay Hill (as 54-hole co-leader) and P2 at the Zurich, teamed with Scott Brown. After kicking off in 67-67-70, the Georgia alum began T4 on 6-under, three shy of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he found eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.697 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.956 SG: Putting. Kisner squared Nos. 3 and 16, outpaced by six birdies at 1, 6, 10-12 and 15, four from between seven and 15 feet, adding a 40-foot bomb for birdie-3 at 10. He missed two par-savers earlier from inside of six feet but dropped a 5-footer on the 72nd hole to secure the trophy. May 28 - 6:10 PM

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 45 Kevin Kisner back-pedaled with an even-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, dropping three spots into a two-way T4 on 6-under 204, three adrift of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson.

After kicking off in twin-67s, the 33-year-old co-led with three others on 6-under. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he found 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.821 strokes approaching-the-green though gaining 1.496 tee-to-green. The Georgia alum had just one blemish, a double bogey-6 at seven after hitting his second OB, leveling the card with a 30-foot chip-in at the first and a lone conventional birdie at the 12th from 37 inches. The South Carolinian recorded a pedestrian 1.909 putts per GIR and -0.496 SG: Putting.

Kevin Kisner cruised his way toward a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, climbing to 6-under 134 after two days, claiming a share of the clubhouse lead with Webb Simpson, Danny Lee, and Scott Piercy.

Kisner was attacking flagstick all day, sticking seven approach shots inside 17 feet, with three landing inside a five-foot radius of the pin. On top of the steady stream of mid-range looks, Kisner also poured one in from 24'5" at the par-4 15th. After the round, he cited his recent struggles with the flat stick (losing strokes putting in each of his last two starts) but at the moment he ranks 5th in the field for strokes gained putting. Despite all the career success he's racked up, this will go in the books as just the second career 36-hole lead/co-lead for the Georgia Bulldog.

Kevin Kisner tackled Colonial Country Club with a 3-under-par 32-35=67 to open his week strong at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

The Georgia Bulldog used steady ball-striking to land 15 greens in regulation today, but it was his flat stick that did the scoring. He splashed home par-saving putts from 22'4" and 17'0" but that was just the start. He also sank birdie bombs from 36'5" and 47'11" at the 2nd and 7th holes, respectively. Kisner would walk off Colonial CC with 3.98 strokes gained putting over the field. With finishes of T5 and T10 in his last two trips here, most gamers are probably not surprised by this fast start.

World No. 40 Kevin Kisner patched together an even-par 37-35=72 in the two-day second round of the Wells Fargo Championship and at 3-over 75-72=147, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 79 players from a field of 156 made the cut of 1-over 145 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. Kisner, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, was the highest up the bookmaker's food chain to trunk slam. He exchanged two birdies with two bogeys in R2, completing his round on Friday, but the damage was incurred during a three-birdie six-bogey 75 on Thursday. Kisner arrived off a P2 last week at the Zurich (teamed with Scott Brown), dropping his record to 0-4 in playoffs. Other notable early exits: 146- Kevin Na; 2006 champ Jim Furyk ... 148- Harold Varner III; Webb Simpson; Bill Haas; Bryson DeChambeau ... 149- William McGirt; Scott Brown; Chase Koepka ... 150- Wesley Bryan; Soren Kjeldsen ... 151- Patrick Rodgers ... 152- Harris English.

In four-ball action in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown painted a day-low bogey-free 12-under-par 28-32=60 to post 27-under 261, that aggregate matched moments later by playing competitors and overnight leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith, resulting in a 2-team playoff which will take place on Monday morning at 8:00 am CT due to darkness. UPDATE: Kisner/Brown lost to a Smith birdie on the fourth hole of sudden death, the 588-yard par-5 18th. Kisner drops to 0-4 in extra time and Brown to 0-1.

After opening in 70-64-67, the Aiken, South Carolina, residents began T2 on 15-under, four back. It took them all of four holes to erase the deficit, opening with four straight birdies. Brown got them started with birdie-3 at the first, and Kisner kicked in with a hat-trick on holes 2-4. Kisner was far from done, connecting three more at 5-7 for six in a row on his own ball. Brown circled the eighth, the duo now 8-under thru eight before a par 3 at nine to turn in 28, now two clear of Blixt/Smith. Brown circled 3 at 10 and Kisner birdied 11, but the duo went flat with six straight pars. Brown saved their last par at 17 and they were one down coming to the par-5 18th. Smith stuck his third to 18 inches for birdie, meaning Kisner/Brown needed eagle to tie, and Kisner answered with a dramatic pitch in from 94'6" away.

Playing alternate shot in today's third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown hung up a 5-under-par 36-31=67 to reach 15-under 201, up 12 places on the live leaderboard to T2 and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Kisner/Brown are T2 and four back of 54-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith.

It was a tale of two nines for the Aiken, South Carolina, residents. They began with nine straight pars before Kisner broke the ice from 6'4" at the par-4 10th. He went back-to-back at the par-5 11th (from 5'0") and Brown joined in with birdie-3 at 13 (12'8"). Brown converted another 3 at the par-4 15th (5'9") and gave way to Kisner at 16, who dropped in yet another 3 at 16 (10'3"). The team's lone drop was bogey-4 at 17 (failed scramble) but bounced back with a 2-putt birdie at the par-5 18th. The duo began the day in a nine-way logjam on 10-under (T14) after opening with 70 (foursomes) and bogey-free 64 (four-balls).

World No. 37 Kevin Kisner smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the RBC Heritage to post 11-under 202, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead and just the third blemish-free round of the day so far (Wesley Bryan, Tyrrell Hatton). UPDATE: With play completed, Kisner is T3, two back of leader Jason Dufner who carded the day's low round with 65.

The South Carolina native and resident is up six spots on the live leaderboard to solo 4th and tied the low lap in the house with three others. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, now bogey-free for a second day in a row. The 33-year-old lost 1.036 strokes approaching-the-green but gained 1.926 around the green and 2.078 on the greens. He circled four conventional at Nos. 5, 9, 12 and 17, highlighted by a 28-foot birdie-2 at the latter, adding a 17-footer from the fringe at the par-4 sixth.

South Carolina native Kevin Kisner blitzed Harbour Town Golf Links with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-31=64 during round two of the RBC Heritage, signing the low round of the day to reach 6-under 136 and claw his way back into contention.

Kisner struggled with his putting on day one, swallowing five three-putts to lose 3.635 strokes putting, perhaps with Augusta National's speedy bentgrass greens still in the back of his mind. He bounced back nicely today, and it was all set up with stellar ball-striking. Kisner gave himself 14 birdie looks from inside 20 feet and converted on half of those. That included a four-pack of putts splashed in from outside 10 feet, much better with his speed control today. This round matches his personal best at Harbour Town GL, equaling his R4 effort in 2015, the year he finished runner-up in a playoff to Jim Furyk.

Kevin Kisner heads to Augusta, Georgia, for a home game at the Masters Tournament being held this week at Augusta National Golf Club.

Kisner will be sleeping in his own bed this week as he lives less than an hour from ANGC. On top of local knowledge, he also arrives in good form. The Georgia Bulldog has finished 11th or better in four of his last six stroke-play events. Kisner will be making his ninth career start in a major championship and is still searching for his first top 10. His current major championship highlights include a T12 at the 2015 U.S. Open and T18 at the 2016 PGA Championship. With form and local knowledge on his side, Kisner becomes a very lively sleeper this week in Augusta, Georgia.

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.

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.

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.
