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.

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.

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.

Kevin Kisner orchestrated a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of The Barclays to reach the three-quarter mark 3-under 210, up 25 spots to T14 with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old began the third frame even-par (T39) after opening his third appearance in 70-72. He erased a lone bogey on the par-4 fifth (failed scramble) with four birdie-3s on Nos. 1, 2, 9 and 18. The University of Georgia alum found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.692 putts per GIR and 3.571 SG: Putting, the current leader in the latter with a cumulative 6.411. All four of his conversions found the bottom from inside of 15 feet and he also made three par-savers from between seven and 10 feet. Kisner entered the week 10th in the FedExCup standings.

Kevin Kisner painted a 7-under-par 32-31=63 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish off his fourth appearance on 13-under 202, up 33 places to T8 and good for the low round in the clubhouse.

This is the 32-year-old's best at Sedgefield CC in 16 laps, eclipsing a second-round 64 on last visit in 2014 (T8). It also ties a career best (406 rounds) shot in the opener at the 2016 Sony Open. The South Carolinian could've went one better, but tree trouble off the tee at the par-4 18th led to a chip-out and eventually missed a par-saver from 9'7", his lone bogey. Earlier, he circled six birdies and an eagle at the par-5 15th (20'5") on 15 greens in regulation for 1.600 putts per GIR. At last check, Kisner gained 2.654 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.515 SG: Putting.

Due to inclement weather, third-round play at the 98th PGA Championship has been abandoned with a scheduled restart of 7:00 am ET on Sunday. UPDATE: Round 3 resumed as scheduled at 7:00 am on Sunday.

Play was initially suspended at 2:15 pm and eventually nixed shortly before 6:00 pm. Forty-nine (49) of 86 players were stranded, including 10 who have yet to tee off. Of the 37 who got their respective rounds into the books, Kevin Kisner is the pace-setter on 5-under 205 following a seven-birdie two bogey 65, tied for low round in the clubhouse with Padraig Harrington. The 32-year-old sandwiched bogeys on Nos. 6 and 7 with back-to-back birdies on 3 and 4, and 8 and 9, later connecting three straight on holes 15-17. He pelted 16 greens in regulation, contributing to 3.540 SG: Approach-the-Green, and is currently up 42 spots on the board to T6. Kisner's split featured a 50-footer at the third and a 22'4" roll on the fourth, adding four other conversions from between eight and 12 feet.

Kevin Kisner, quietly 12th in the FedExCup standings, crafted a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the halfway point on 4-under 140, up 47 spots currently to T8 and tied for the low round in the clubhouse with Chad Campbell.

The 32-year-old was 1-over thru his first six holes, outpacing birdie-3 (23'10") at the third with back-to-back bogeys at 4 and 5, but played his final 13 holes in blemish-free 6-under. He kicked off his comeback with consecutive circles at 7 and 8 from between 13 and 16 feet, and capped it with four straight birdies to conclude his round, highlighted by a 21'4" roll on the par-3 15th. The University of Georgia alum converted his seven birdies on 10 greens in regulation for a tidy 1.300 putts per GIR. He's currently three shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson.

Kevin Kisner tacked on an even-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to post 1-under 139, up three spots on the live leaderboard to T6.

The 32-year-old digressed to six (of 14) fairways but improved to 12 greens in regulation. He gained ground against the field in each strokes gained category with the exception of SG: Around-the-Green, where he lost -0.589. Kisner circled birdies on Nos. 5, 8, 10 and 17, but erased his good work with bogeys at 4 and 11 and a double bogey-7 at the 16th after hitting his third into the water. With the wind picking up throughout the day, Kisner was T13 when he signed his card, but has progressively moved up the leaderboard with each passing moment.

Kevin Kisner kept his name near the top of the leaderboard with an opening round 1-under-par 36-33=69 at this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Kevin Kisner crafted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to conclude his third appearance on 8-under 272, up 11 to T9 with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old finished T5 here in his second appearance last year so a return to Colonial CC was just what the doctor ordered. He entered the week without a top-20 finish since January, a span of nine events. The South Carolinian posted rounds of 71-66-69-66 and for the week tallied 18 birdies, six in R4, against 10 bogeys, two in the finale. It the top 10 holds, it'll be his fifth of the season in 16 starts and first since T5 at the Sony Open.
