Kevin Kisner will compete in his second RBC Heritage thanks to a sponsor invitation.
Kisner is a native of Aiken, South Carolina, so it's likely the thought of family and friends making the short drive to Hilton Head offered some appeal to the tournament organizers. His only other start at Harbour Town was a missed cut in 2011. At 153rd in the FedExCup standings and being subject to the Tour reshuffle, any and every opportunity to tee it up is critical.

Kevin Kisner smoothed a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 in today's open qualifier for the Valspar Championship, good for co-medalist honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

Kisner rolled in six birdies at Southern Hills Plantation Club in Brooksville, Fla. Like many in the field, he made the trip from Puerto Rico where he tied for 49th place. Mark Blakefield also buried six birdies en route to a bogey-free 66 today; he carded respective nines of 34 and 32. The resurgent Eric Axley (T24 in Puerto Rico) and Michael Hebert secured the final two tee times at Copperhead after surviving a playoff with Brice Garnett. Axley shot a 5-under 36-31=67 with an eagle, five birdies and two bogeys, while Hebert offset a lone bogey with six birdies for a 5-under 32-35=67. Both Blakefield and Hebert will be making their PGA TOUR debuts this week. The field for the Valspar is now complete at 144.

Kevin Kisner earned a return trip to the PGA TOUR via Tour regular-season earnings.

While he made three of four cuts to begin the 2013-14 campaign, including a T20 at The McGladrey Classic, perhaps his highlight was a win at the Callaway Pebble Beach Invitational on November 24. Unfortunately for him, the event featured players from multiple tours and is not considered official for the purposes of the PGA TOUR. He'll have to win an official event if he is to pull himself out of the reshuffle category this season.

Kevin Kisner smoothed a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

If you missed it, Kisner bookended a T20 at The McGladrey Classic with a 65 and 66, respectively. He's a short-game wizard, but has yet to put four rounds together as he embarks on his third season on the PGA TOUR. This is evident by the fact that his career-best finish in 52 starts is a T10 at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. His talent around the greens at El Camaleón are already on display as he split only five (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation, yet limited the negative to one bogey at the par-4 third hole. In the meantime, all he did was convert seven birdies to continue the form with which he polished off his week in Georgia.

Kevin Kisner turned in a 5-under-par 34-31=65 for his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, finishing two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

The University of Georgia product bookended an otherwise splendid round with bogeys at 1 and 18. He added a third bogey at No. 3, but found eight birdies elsewhere. The set included respective conversions from 10'9", 12'8" and 22'7" at Nos. 5, 10 and 12. Kisner hit 13 greens in regulation and didn't miss on all 17 attempts inside 14 feet. That translates into a strokes gained-putting clip of 3.055 at the time he signed his card, good for third-highest in the field of 132.

Kevin Kisner will tee it up at TPC Summerlin for his third crack at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Kisner started his season with a solid T33 last week at CordeValle Golf Club. Given he is a Tour Finals grad and is 13th in the initial reshuffle, every dollar is precious in terms of lining up future starts. He missed the cut in this week's event in 2012, but tied for 29th in 2011.

Kevin Kisner returned to Annandale Golf Club this morning to put the finishing touches on a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

He got up and in for par each of the five times he missed a green in regulation while sniping seven birdies along the way, three of which on par 5s. The PGA TOUR non-member signed his card just two strokes off the 18-hole lead.

The opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship is scheduled to resume at 5:20 p.m. CT. UPDATE: The restart has been delayed indefinitely. UPDATE #2: Play is now scheduled to resume at 7:00 p.m.

Play was suspended at 2:01 p.m. due to inclement weather moving in from the northeast. Kevin Kisner will return to the par-5 seventh hole. He's bogey-free 4-under after six holes. That he's actually on site is a bit of a surprise. He was originally added to the field as an alternate via his position in the 150-200 range on the 2012 PGA TOUR money list. He was removed on Wednesday during quite a bit of confusion over who was in and who withdrew. The field stands at 129, including the earlier withdrawal of Shawn Stefani.

Kevin Kisner has been added to the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship. UPDATE: As of late on Wednesday night, he's no longer included in the field.

Kisner started the week outside the top-35 alternates, but gained entry due to two withdrawals today. In fact, he was the only replacement as the other five potential alternates took a pass, thus leaving the field at just 131, one short of its intended capacity. Kisner can afford to skip the Tour's Midwest Classic since he's 11th on the circuit's money list on the strength of a victory in Chile in March. The former two-time PGA TOUR member has one top 10 in 48 career starts with the big boys (T10, 2012 Canadian Open). NOTE: The field now stands at 130.

Kevin Kisner took home the hardware on the Tour for the second time in his career when he signed for a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Chile Classic.

Kisner finished the week at 21-under 71-67-61-68=267, only suffering two bogeys in his last three rounds. He began the day in a three-way tie for the lead, but gradually distanced himself with five birdies in his first 13 holes. His lone bogey surprisingly came at the par-5 14th, but he would hang on from there. This win was a bit unexpected, as he has missed the cut in his previous two starts this season. His previous victory came at the 2010 Mylan Classic. He now moves to second on the Tour money list and is a virtual lock to finish the year inside the top 75 to gain entry into the four tournament race for a 2013-2014 PGA TOUR card, where he was a member in 2011 and 2012.

Kevin Kisner fired a course-record 11-under-par 32-29=61 in the third round of the Chile Classic to share the lead at 17-under 199 with Benjamin Alvarado and Edward Loar.

Kisner was a modest 1-under through five holes before he kicked on the afterburners. After a birdie at six, he rattled in four consecutive birdies beginning with the eight hole. He then eagled the par-5 14th before finishing with birdies on each of his last three holes. As you would likely assume, his round was without a blemish. His course record smashed the previous mark of 64 set by three players last season.

Kevin Kisner polished off his week at the Wyndham Championship with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round to finish the week at 5-under 275.

Kisner circled five birdies to a lone bogey in his tour of Sedgefield Country Club on the strength of a hot putter. He needed just 26 putts to a 1.636 average to navigate the 11 greens he found in regulation. At the time of his posting, he was projected 153rd in the FedExCup standings, so a trip to The Barclays is not in his future.

Kevin Kisner earned his first-career top 10 with a final-round 1-under-par 34-35=69 at the RBC Canadian Open.

That was good enough to put him in a tie for 10th at 10-under 270. Had he reduced his 33 putts and 2.00 putting average in the finale, it would have made for an even better finish. He now moves on to Nevada for the Reno-Tahoe Open.
Sun, Jul 29, 2012 05:53:00 PM

Kevin Kisner carded a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the midpoint in 6-under 134, five strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Kisner hit 14 greens at Hamilton today and rolled in six birdies, including conversions from 11'1" and 33 feet at the 13th and 18th holes, respectively. It's his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR this year, and it comes at a great time as he arrived in Ontario ranked 169th in FedExCup points.

Kevin Kisner opened the Travelers Championship with a 4-under-par 33-33=66 to finish two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Kisner recorded a quiet T13 in Memphis two weeks ago for his best finish of the year. He brought that form with him to Connecticut today, hitting 14 greens and swallowing a lone bogey at the 18th hole, his last of the round. His most notable of five birdies found the cup from 28'2" at the 14th, and he also drilled home a par save from 17'2" at the 15th. The second-year PGA TOUR member was the tenth to sign for a 66 today.
