Kevin Kisner hung up a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of The Greenbrier Classic to put 13-under 267 on the board and then was eliminated on the first hole of sudden death by eventual champion Danny Lee.
Kisner, twice a runner-up in 2015 already, missed a 16'8" birdie chance at the last to win in regulation and would subsequently be involved in a four-man playoff with Robert Streb, Danny Lee and David Hearn to decide the champion. Kisner airmailed the first playoff hole (par-3 18th) and took several swipes to reach the green. Lee and Hearn matched birdies to eliminate Kisner and Streb. Kisner began his final frame at 7-under (T17) and four strokes back. He circled seven par breakers on the round, joining the lead at 12-under after birdie on the 15th (his sixth of the day) and taking the outright lead at the 17th rolling in his longest conversion from 15 feet 10 inches. Kisner concluded the tournament at a cumulative 9.389 strokes gained: total, T1 in that stat on the week. The 31-year-old, who hadn't made the weekend in three prior Greenbrier appearances, adds his third runner-up finish of the season and is still looking for his first PGA TOUR title (97th career start).

Kevin Kisner and Andy Sullivan have qualified for this week's U.S. Open by virtue of their placement in the updated Official World Golf Ranking.

The top 60 in the latest edition are exempt into the field of 156 at Chambers Bay. Kisner is 55th; Sullivan is 58th. It'll be Kisner's second U.S. Open after missing the cut at Pinehurst last year. The Englishman has never played in a major. Oliver Farr and Shunsuke Sonoda were recent additions after Corey Conners turned pro and Michael Campbell retired. The final four tee times will be filled using the USGA's alternate system.

Kevin Kisner rounded off his second appearance at the Memorial with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 and his 11-under 277 total was good for a three-way tie for eighth place.

Kisner began the final frame at 9-under (T9) and six shots back of the 54-hole lead. On his round he split 12 (of 14) fairways, finishing the week 50-for-56 (89.29 percent), third in that stat. Kisner circled birdies on both par 5s on the front to push his total to 11-under and a peek at the top of the leaderboard, but suffered three bogeys over his next five holes to fall out of contention. To his credit, the 31-year-old played his last six in 3-under, adding par breakers on Nos. 14, 15 and 17, the latter disappearing from 24'5" for his longest conversion of the day. Kisner did not improve on his season-best runner-up finishes, of which he has two, but he easily displaced his T47 in last year's Memorial debut. He also added his fifth top 10 in 2014-15, second in a row, and third in his last four starts.
Jun 7 - 8:43 PM

Kevin Kisner added a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in today's second round of the Memorial to post 6-under 138 at the break.

Can't win tournaments on Fridays, but he didn't lose it, either. If that's the worse-case-scenario takeaway today, then that's OK. He found only 11 greens in regulation and poured in four birdies. Three of them ranged 10-15 feet. Kisner also swallowed a trio of bogeys, but he remains in position to make another run at his first PGA TOUR victory this weekend.
Jun 5 - 11:54 AM

Kevin Kisner submitted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 for his opening round of the Memorial, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

The red-hot 31-year-old went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee in today's afternoon wave at Muirfield Village Golf Club and buried seven birdies against two bogeys. Three of his par breakers ranged 18-24 feet and he walked off with a par save from 11'1" at the par-4 ninth. At last check, he ranked fourth in the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 3.167. Kisner bracketed a T46 in his debut here last year with 69s, so he married that experience with supreme confidence of late. Continue to invest with confidence.
Jun 4 - 4:40 PM

Kevin Kisner has been removed from the published field of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

He delivered with a T5 at Colonial in the wake of playoff losses at Harbour Town at TPC Sawgrass. Now 17th in the FedExCup standings, Kisner can be fully vested in his next tier of goals. Of course, his previous set still includes winning a PGA TOUR event. He's yet to break through in 94 starts.

Kevin Kisner rounded off his second Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 and his 10-under 270 was good enough to finish in a five-way tie for fifth.

Kisner began the day at 7-under (T6) and four shots adrift of the 54-hole lead. After his bogey-free tour of Colonial CC he would end the proceeding just two back. Not bad for his second appearance at the CPI, having missed the cut in last year's edition. On his round, Kisner found 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, completing his week a cumulative 8.552 stroked gained: total, good for T5 in that stat. The 31-year-old circled birdies on Nos. 8, 11 and 16, the latter finding the cup from 26'. He remains a hot commodity in fantasy circles, registering his third top five in his last five starts on TOUR.
May 24 - 8:04 PM

Kevin Kisner submitted a 1-under-par 35-34=69 for his second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to reach the midpoint in 4-under 136, six strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Kisner went 6-for-7 in scrambling with a bogey today, but he corralled only two birdies, both from inside seven feet on par 4s. It was a pedestrian round until he sunk a par try from 70'8" at the par-4 seventh. He then converted a zero-putt six-yarder for another par, this time at the par-3 eighth. So, while his short game salvaged the day, the good news is that he's still relevant entering the weekend as he chases his first PGA TOUR title.
May 22 - 5:53 PM

Kevin Kisner posted 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

With playoff losses at Harbour Town and TPC Sawgrass, Kisner is feelin' it of late. Colonial Country Club favors a similar game that those two feature, so Kisner is where he projected early on. He went 6-for-12 in scoring chances and sunk everything he saw inside 10 feet. His longest conversion dropped in for birdie from 29'5" at the par-4 sixth. The only negative is that he bogeyed three of the holes where he missed the green in regulation.
May 21 - 4:20 PM

Four days after losing in a playoff at THE PLAYERS, Kevin Kisner opened the Wells Fargo Championship with a 3-under-par 36-33=69.

His owner will take it as he's four strokes off the clubhouse lead. With a pair of P2s in the last month and a T6 here last year, Kisner figured to maintain form. He went 3-for-5 in scrambling with two bogeys but rolled in five birdies for the sub-70. Three of his par breakers measured at least 10 feet, the longest stretching 20'7" at the par-4 12th. Continue to enjoy the ride as long as it lasts.
May 14 - 6:36 PM

In his PLAYERS debut, Kevin Kisner conjured up a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's final round to post 12-under 279 and then was eliminated on the first hole of sudden-death by Rickie Fowler.

Kisner missed a 9'7" birdie chance on the last to win in regulation and would subsequently be part of a first-ever, three-hole aggregate playoff at THE PLAYERS that would involve three players (Sergio Garcia was the third). Kisner would match Fowler in the aggregate finishing at 1-under but would be eliminated on the first hole of sudden-death by Fowler's birdie-2 on the 17th. The 31-year-old began his final round with a tap-in birdie on No. 2 prior to dropping back-to-back shots on the fourth and fifth. He rebounded with birdie on the sixth to get back to even on his round. Kisner went on to register consecutive pars on Nos. 7-11 before converting from 4'11" for birdie on the 12th. He added two more par breakers on 16 and 17 setting up his miss at the end of regulation that would have given him his first PGA TOUR title. His runner-up finish matches his career-best from three weeks ago at the RBC Heritage.
May 10 - 7:09 PM

Kevin Kisner tacked on a 5-under-par 31-36=67 in today's third round of THE PLAYERS to post 9-under 207.

Kisner began his third round in a fourteen-way tie for 13th at 4-under and four shots back of the 36-hole leaders. It was a tale of two nines for the 31-year-old, circling five birdies in a bogey-free outward half, converting birdie rolls of 2'2" up to 12'6" on the par-5 second. He then relied on some adept short-game skills to navigate his way to an even-par back nine, scrambling for pars on Nos. 13, 14 and 16 to go 4-for-5 in that stat. On the round he registered nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, but only five of those GIR were on the back. Kisner, part of the 2005 University of Georgia National Championship team, is in a prime position to redeem a playoff loss three weeks ago at the RBC Heritage.
May 9 - 6:22 PM

Kevin Kisner carded a 5-under-par 36-31=67 in today's second round of THE PLAYERS.

The 31-year-old is making his debut at TPC Sawgrass, but he's already figured out how to putt its greens. Today's loop featured seven birdies, five of which from outside 10 feet. Three ran at least 27 feet, the longest stretching 48'7" at the par-4 18th hole. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the round measured a hearty 5.306. And at 4-under 140, he's just two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
May 8 - 1:39 PM

Kevin Kisner spun a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to post 18-under 266, and then lost on the second playoff hole to Jim Furyk.

The 31-year-old came oh-so-close to becoming the first South Carolinian to win the tournament in its 47-year history. Kisner came to the 18th hole needing birdie to force a playoff and he delivered, calmly sinking a 6'8" putt to go to extra time. He buried a mid-range birdie on the same green on the first hole of the playoff, but his try for birdie on the par-3 17th never threatened, thus opening the door for Furyk to take the title. Kisner entered the final round three shots off the overnight lead. To show he meant business, he eagled the par-5 second, holing out from eight yards right of the hole. He added another chip-in for birdie on the par-5 fifth and followed with his first actual birdie putt of the round on the par-4 sixth. Kisner stagnated in the middle of the round with pars on Nos. 7-13, but circled back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15 to set the stage for his clutch birdie on the last. His consolation is a career-best finish on the PGA TOUR.
Apr 19 - 3:25 PM

Kevin Kisner added a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of the RBC Heritage to post 11-under 202, and sits three shots back of the 54-hole leader.

Kisner surgically found the fairway 12 (of 14) times, hit 14 greens in regulation and went 4-for-4 in scrambling on the day. The Aiken, South Carolina, native took advantage of both par fives on the front including a conversion from the greenside-bunker on the fifth hole. He kept his card spotless scrambling successfully each of the three times he missed the green on his outward half and one last time on the par-4 12th. Kisner added birdies on the par-4 13th and the par-3 17th, dropping each from inside of eight feet. There may be a touch of disappointment as he stood over 14 par breakers but converted on only four.
