Making his season debut, past champ and World No. 26 Kevin Kisner styled a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of The RSM Classic to post 12-under 200, up seven spots to solo 5th, one back of 54-hole clubhouse leader J.J. Spaun.
The Georgia alum, a pre-tourney 16/1 fave outright, is now 5-for-7 at the RSM with three prior top 25s and two top 10s, both doubling as top 5s, highlighted by his first (of two) TOUR titles two years ago.

Making his season debut, past champ and World No. 26 Kevin Kisner returns to Sea Island Golf Club for his seventh consecutive RSM Classic.

The Georgia alum, a pre-tourney 16/1 fave outright, is 4-for-6 at the RSM with three top 25s and two top 10s, both doubling as top 5s, highlighted by his first (of two) TOUR titles two years ago. At the 2016 edition, the first to utilize two courses, he was the 18- and 54-hole leader, winning by six in a tournament-record 22-under 260, and MC'd last year in his title defense. The 33-year-old finished a career-best 12th in the FedExCup standings last season with a career-high 12 top 25s among 25 cashes in 28 starts. He posted a career-high eight top 10s, five for top 5s, highlighted by his second title at the DEAN & DELUCA (as 36-hole leader). The South Carolinian, who trains at Sea Island, ended last season with a T3 at the TOUR Championship and went 2-0-2 in his Presidents Cup debut.

Kevin Kisner and Phil Mickelson trailed for 14 holes but battled back to secure a 1-up victory over Jason Day and Marc Leishman during the Friday four-ball segment of the 2017 Presidents Cup, giving the United States a commanding 8-to-2 lead over the International Team.

The International Team opened the match with four straight birdies to find themselves 2-up early. The Aussies went cold from that point on, as they circled just one more birdie throughout the match. The Americans did well to keep hanging around then birdied two of the final four holes to heist this point. The last birdie was most notable as Mickelson sank a 12'4" putt that led to an unusual (but awesome) celebration with Kisner. The Americans led this match for exactly one hole, but it was the hole that mattered most. Mickelson is now 21-11-10 in the team portion of the Presidents Cup.

World No. 26 Kevin Kisner stalled out to an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to conclude on 10-under 68-68-64-70=270, down one spot to T3, two adrift of champion Xander Schauffele, but jumps six places to a career-best 12th in the FedExCup standings.

After a two-birdie one-bogey 34, the Georgia alum led Schauffele, one group ahead, by one, but came home in two-birdie three-bogey 36, which included a 19'7" bogey-save at the par-3 15th after watering his tee ball. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and conjured nine greens in regulation, losing 3.422 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.872 tee-to-green. He circled his four at holes 5, 6, 12 and 18, cancelling them with squares at 4, 10, 11 and 15. The South Carolinian posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.705 SG: Putting, taking 26 total putts. This was his first top-25 finish at East Lake in three tries and his first top 10 in the Playoffs in 13 events. Kisner finished the season with a career-best eight top 10s in 28 events, highlighted by his second TOUR title at the DDI 12 starts ago.

World No. 26 Kevin Kisner painted a 6-under-par 31-33=64 on Moving Day at the TOUR Championship to reach 10-under 200, up nine spots to solo 2nd, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead and tying the week's low round with first-round leader Kyle Stanley. UPDATE: With play completed, Kisner is T2, two back of 54-hole leader Paul Casey.

This is the Georgia alum's third straight appearance with a best of 26th last year, which also included his previous-best lap of 67/R1. He entered the week 18th in the FedExCup standings and began the Playoffs with three finishes outside the top 50, lowlighted by a T67 last week. After kicking off in twin 68s, the 33-year-old began T11 on 4-under, three back of a trio of overnight co-leaders. He landed seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.936 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.227 around-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 4.065. The South Carolinian squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 4 (3-putt from 44'5"), smothered by seven circles at 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 13 and 14, five from inside of 10 feet, a long of 21 feet at 13, and a chip-in 3 at 14 from 38 yards away. He posted 1.615 putts per GIR and -0.262 SG: Putting, taking 25 total putts.

Kevin Kisner witnessed the birth of his second child last week and will now turn his focus back to the task at hand as he preps for the BMW Championship in Lake Forest, Illinois.

Kisner become a father back in June of 2014, but he now has two kiddos under his wing. After the birth of his daughter back in 2014, he posted finished of MC-T69-MC in his next three starts. There was no instant gratification for gamers looking to cash in on the always-fun Nappy Factor. This time around Kisner ranks 14th in the FedExCup standings with just two events remaining. The Georgia Bulldog has one appearance at Conway Farms, a T41 back in 2015. That was played on a rain-soaked course, so perhaps the straight shooter will enjoy his second visit a little better.

First- and second-round co-leader and 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner labored to a 3-over-par 36-38=74 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to finish up on 4-under 280, down six spots to T7, a distant four in arrears of champion Justin Thomas who shot 68.

First- and second-round co-leader and World No. 25 Kevin Kisner battled to a 1-over-par 34-38=72 in the third round of the 99th PGA Championship for a 54-hole tally of 7-under 206, good for a one-shot lead over Chris Stroud and playing competitor Hideki Matsuyama.

Kevin Kisner styled a superb 4-under-par 34-33=67 to post an early and challenging 36-hole clubhouse mark of 8-under 134 in the 2017 PGA Championship at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. UPDATE: With R2 play suspended due to darkness, Kisner co-leads with Hideki Matsuyama. If the co-lead holds up -- and it should -- it'll be his third on TOUR in his 155th career start, winning the 2017 DEAN & DELUCA and finishing 2nd at the 2016 WGC-HSBC.

As the 33-year-old signed his card there was not one golfer closer than four swings of him, either in the clubhouse, on the course or waiting to tee off. He earned the lofty position thanks to a second lap of the course that required just the 67 strokes. He began Friday on the back nine and a third shot of 107-yards to the par-5 tenth settled 10’9" from the flag; he dropped it for birdie. Two holes later he drained a 5’8" birdie effort and an 84-yard third shot at No. 15 gave him a 5’5" look at a par breaker which he didn’t waste. The only error came at the par-3 13th; he missed the green and couldn’t save par. The front nine witnessed eight pars and one stunning eagle courtesy of a 47’9" putt after an approach from 217-yards. He ranks fourth for SG putting through 36 holes (6.105) and fifth for SG Tee to Green (8.663). His nearest clubhouse challenger as he took lunch was Rickie Fowler, five back.

Kevin Kisner cruised to a 4-under-par 33-34=67 during the opening round of the 99th PGA Championship, staking his share of the clubhouse lead after day one.

Kisner was dialed in with his irons today, pelting 15 greens in regulation, good for +3.364 strokes gained approach-to-the-green. It took a lot more than just good ball-striking to score on the difficult Quail Hollow Club greens today. Kisner synced up the striking with stellar putting, splashing home five putts from 9'10" or longer, including a pair from the 21-to-23 foot range. The Georgia Bulldog walked off the course gaining 4.007 strokes putting over the field. Playing in his 12th major championship, this is the first time Kisner has lead/co-lead after any round. Looking at all tournaments, it's his third career lead/co-lead after R1, converting one of the two previous times (2016 RSM Classic).

Kevin Kisner is searching for his first top 10 in a major championship as he preps for the 99th PGA Championship this week in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Kisner is 8-for-11 in majors, with a T12 at the 2015 U.S. Open being his top result. In the PGA Championship specifically, he is 1-for-2 with a T18 last year being the highlight. At Quail Hollow, Kisner is 2-for-5 with a T6 at the 2014 Wells Fargo Championship the standout finish. The South Carolina native should feel quite comfortable on a Carolina course this week. In fact, he has a family member who is a member at the course, perhaps giving him some intel on the recent course changes. With six top 10s in 22 starts this season, Kisner makes for a very appealing sleeper this week.

Kevin Kisner cruised to a 3-under-par 35-32=67 during the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, flinging his name into contention early in the week.

Kisner split eight (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation. His iron play was his strongest weapon, gaining 2.852 strokes on approach today (third best in the field at the moment). On top of that, his flat stick also drained a steady stream of putts. He converted on six putts from the 8-to-15 foot range, offsetting a 4'10" miss to gain more than 2 strokes putting versus the field. Kisner is making his third start at Firestone Country Club, debuting with a T37 in 2015 before improving to T16 last year.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 24 Kevin Kisner fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the second round of the John Deere Classic to post 8-under 134, up 34 places on the live leaderboard to T3, one back of clubhouse leaders Chesson Hadley and Chad Campbell. UPDATE: With play completed, Kisner is T9, five shy of 36-hole leader Patrick Rodgers.

Arriving off a notable missed cut at the Greenbrier, the 33-year-old is blemish-free thru 36 holes at TPC Deere Run. He kicked off with a two-birdie 69 on 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, the flat stick not quite cooperating at 1.929 putts per GIR and -0.706 SG: Putting. The Georgia alum put on a stripe show on Day 2, pelting all 14 fairways and 16 GIR, registering 3.001 SG: Approach-the-Green and 3.820 SG: Tee-to-Green. He circled six on the card, two from between 15 and 20 feet, recording 1.177 SG: Putting, losing a bit of luster with two missed scoring tries from inside of eight feet. This is Kisner's fifth Deere with a T20 in 2014 his best among two cashes.

World No. 24 Kevin Kisner, a pre-tourney 14/1 outright, sleepwalked to an even-par 35-35=70 in the second round of The Greenbrier Classic and at 2-over 72-70=142, missed the cut by three shots.

A total of 73 pros and one amateur from a field of 153 pros and three amateurs made the cut of 1-under 139, 19 of those T56 on the number. Kisner, second-highest on the bookmaker's food chain and second-highest in OWGR, was blemish-free 2-under thru 13 holes, circling Nos. 10 and 14, but cancelled them bogeys at 5 and 9. That followed a three-birdie five-bogey 72 on Day 1. This is the Georgia alum's third MC of the season in 19 starts, first since the Well Fargo five starts ago. Other notable early exits include: 141- Si Woo Kim; Spencer Levin; Morgan Hoffmann; 2013 champ Jonas Blixt ... 142- Boo Weekley; Sung Kang; Sean O'Hair; Scott Brown ... 143- Johnson Wagner ... 144- Luke Donald; 2014 champ Angel Cabrera ... 145- Jason Kokrak ... 148- Braden Thornberry.

The Georgia alum recorded nine straight pars before exchanging bogey-5 at 10 with birdie-4 at 11. He eagled the par-5 15th from 14'8", retreated one with a failed sand save at 16, and then traded birdie-3 at 17 with a walk-off bogey on a failed scramble. The South Carolinian conjured seven (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.218 strokes tee-to-green but losing -0.256 on-the-green. This is his 10th top 25 of the season in 17 starts and sixth top 10, arriving off his second TOUR win last week at the DEAN & DELUCA.
