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.

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.

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.

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.
Jun 7 - 12:17 PM

Kevin Kisner opened the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 5-under-par 33-32=65 and finished three strokes off Ben Crane's 18-hole lead.

Kisner went out in the penultimate threesome off the first tee on Thursday, so he was one of 60 to return to TPC Southwind for today's 7:02 a.m. CT restart. The suspension bothered him little as he totaled seven birdies against two bogeys to tie his lowest round of the season (carded twice previously). Four of his par breakers disappeared from some distance, including a five-yarder and six-yarder at the first and 14th holes, respectively. His longest conventional birdies measured 20'11" at 7 and 17'7" at 12. He even poured in a par save from 12'9" at the par-4 13th. Kisner arrived sitting 103rd in FedExCup points, but he's been piecing together a number of solid rounds. In fact, he logged a red number in all but one of his 19 starts this season.
Jun 6 - 10:19 AM

Kevin Kisner turned in a 3-under-par 36-33=69 for his opening round of the Memorial.

He wasn't officially in the field for his first appearance here until Monday when Graham DeLaet withdrew, but Kisner played like a veteran today. He hit 13 greens and holed six birdies, including tries from 19'9" and 11'6" at Nos. 2 and 8, respectively. He also squared three bogeys, but he can't be too displeased for reaching the clubhouse just three strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.
May 29 - 2:29 PM

Kevin Kisner was added to the published field of this week's Memorial.

Kisner was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Graham DeLaet withdrew. Kisner had connected top 20s at Quail Hollow and Las Colinas for the first time in his career, but he missed the cut at Colonial to fall five spots to 105th in FedExCup points. He'll be making his debut at Muirfield Village.
May 26 - 11:01 AM

Kevin Kisner spun a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship and is the first to post 5-under 275.

Kisner evenly distributed five birdies before he gave a shot back on the par-3 17th hole. He was efficient but not outstanding with the flatstick, with his 14' birdie putt on the par-3 fifth registering as his only putt outside of nine feet. This will be Kisner's fourth straight week inside the top 40 and it's safe to say he's in the best form of his young PGA TOUR career.
May 18 - 2:27 PM

Kevin Kisner stumbled to a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship but emerged with his second career top 10 at 9-under 279.

Kisner's previous best PGA TOUR finish was a T10 in the 2012 RBC Canadian Open, and he had the added pressure of playing with Phil Mickelson in his quest to better that. He started off slow, with eight pars on the front nine at Quail Hollow giving way to a bogey at the par-4 ninth. He added a second bogey at the par-3 13th, then circled his lone birdie from 10'3" on the par-5 15th. When he walked off the course he found himself in a tie for sixth with Brendon de Jonge. If his standing changes at all, it will be for the better, as nobody left on the course is below him.
May 4 - 5:42 PM

Kevin Kisner conjured a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship and is safely inside the top five a 10-under 206.

The Georgia Bulldog was busy on Saturday, gathering seven birdies and giving up three bogeys at Quail Hollow Club. The highlight was a 27'1" birdie on the par-3 13th. While the third round was statistically his worst with the flat stick, he still leads the tournament in strokes gained. He has just one top 10 on the PGA TOUR in 63 previous starts, and that was a T10 at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. He stands an excellent chance to better that in Sunday's finale.
May 3 - 5:38 PM

Kevin Kisner enjoyed a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

He hit only nine green in regulation, but limited the damage to a lone bogey-3 at the sixth hole. Elsewhere, Kisner picked off an eagle at the par-5 seventh and five birdies, including rolls of 21'8" and 14'1" at Nos. 5 and 13, respectively. He also poured in a par save from 10'7" at 4. At 6-under 138, he's just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. The 30-year-old arrived in Charlotte slotted 142nd in the FedExCup standings despite nine paydays. Alas, he's logged just one top 30 (T20, McGladrey).
