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. Dec 5 - 4:08 PM

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 UPDATE: Kisner later alerted his followers on Twitter that he had withdrawn from next week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.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.
Oct 25 - 3:22 PM

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.
Oct 17 - 2:39 PM

Kevin Kisner crafted a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Open and is the first man to post 7-under 281.

The University of Georgia product picked up six birdies and surrendered just two bogeys. Each of his birdies fell from inside nine feet. Kisner ended 2013-14 in fine form, finishing T20-T9-T8-MC in his last four starts of the season. It's clear that he's carried that over into the 2014-15 campaign, as he was tied for 20th at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course at the time of his posting and looks likely to nab a top-25 finish.
Oct 12 - 4:56 PM

Kevin Kisner is likely chomping at the bit to get back in action at the Open.

Kisner ended 2013-14 by making three of his last four cuts. Each of those three went for top-20 finishes, including a pair of top 10s. Considering he's snared just four top 10s in 75 career starts, it's safe to say that his form was as good as it had ever been.
Oct 8 - 8:46 PM

Kevin Kisner readies for his FedExCup Playoffs debut at The Barclays this week.

The University of Georgia product found himself on the bubble after a missed cut at The Greenbrier Classic dropped him to 117th in the FedExCup standings. He responded with a sense of urgency, posting three straight top 20s, including back-to-back top 10s in his last two. The lack of experience in the Playoffs makes Kisner a high-upside, cheap option in salary-cap formats but it also makes him a risky one.
Aug 19 - 9:51 PM

Kevin Kisner signed for a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to end his week inside the top 10 at 13-under 267.

Of Kisner's four birdies, his 15'3" effort on the par-4 10th was the highlight. He navigated Sedgefield CC swallowing just one bogey on the afternoon. His 15 GIR were not only the key to his round, but the difference in his week. He landed 58 GIR for the week, ranking inside the top 10 in that category. While he was in good shape for the FedExCup Playoffs at 101st when the week began, he now stands a better chance at advancing deeper.
Aug 17 - 5:20 PM

Kevin Kisner spun a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and eyes a top-10 finish at 10-under 200.

The University of Georgia product circled six birdies on his lap around Sedgefield CC, but also dropped a bogey and a double bogey. Among the highlights were a 46'9" birdie at the par-4 second, a 20'10" birdie at the par-4 sixth and a 37'5" chip-in birdie from the fairway at the par-4 10th. Already 101st in the FedExCup standings and safely inside the top 125, he is playing for both his first PGA TOUR victory and positioning in the Playoffs.

Kevin Kisner has been removed from the published field of this week's Barracuda Championship.

His T9 in Canada wasn't as influential as Tim Clark's victory, but it afforded the American an opportunity to take a breather. Kisner climbed to 95th in the FedExCup standings to all but secure his first berth in the Playoffs. This is his third season on the PGA TOUR, but he hasn't sat higher than the Tour reshuffle category. That will change next season as he'll be exempt from the reshuffle as a member of the top 125.

Kevin Kisner blitzed Royal Montreal to the tune of a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-31=64 to finish his week at the RBC Canadian Open at 9-under 271.

Kisner got the maximum use out of the flat stick today, rolling in five of his six birdies from outside of nine feet. His strokes gained-putting sat at 4.020 for the day as he walked off the 18th green. This was his second consecutive final round 64, as he did the same last week at the John Deere Classic. Kisner entered the week ranked 108th in the FedExCup standings, and can now rest a little easier with this cushion.
Jul 27 - 1:14 PM

Kevin Kisner posted the low mark of the dew sweepers in the final round of the John Deere Classic in the form of an 7-under-par 31-33=64.

Kisner's round was highlighted by an eagle on the par-4 14th. He drove the green and converted a 20'11" putt. His scorecard featured six other birdies and just one blemish to finish the tournament at 12-under 272. Other highlights included birdies from 11'8" on the par-5 second, 13'1" in the par-4 sixth and an approach to 14 inches for a tap-in birdie on the par-4 eighth. While his clubhouse lead has no chance of standing up, he can depart TPC Deere Run in a good frame of mind for the remainder of the season.
Jul 13 - 1:00 PM

Kevin Kisner is back in action this week at The Greenbrier Classic.

Life has settled down for the Georgia alum, after a hectic period that included qualifying for his first U.S. Open, playing in his first major, and his wife having their first child. With 10 finishes inside the top 50 on the season, Kisner remains a very solid weekly investment for salary-cap gamers.
Jul 2 - 10:06 AM

Kevin Kisner chased his opening 65 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 to post 3-under 137.

He's nine strokes back of Ben Crane's commanding 36-hole clubhouse lead, but Kisner's focus is likely split with other things at the moment. PGA TOUR Media reported on Twitter that his wife is scheduled to deliver the couple's first child on Monday. The prospective father qualified for the U.S. Open, which would be his debut in a major, so he's jamming quite a bit of personal and professional life experiences into a short period of time. He lives in Aiken, South Carolina, which is about 200 miles from Pinehurst, so at least the logistics of fulfilling all of his obligations are in his favor. He just needs the SJC to finish on time, which may be unreasonable to expect given the weather in Memphis.
