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. May 25 - 12:10 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 18 - 5:51 PM

Kevin Kisner kept it floored in today's second round of the RBC Heritage, posting a 4-under-par 33-34=67 and reach the midpoint in 7-under 135.

Kisner found the short grass 11 (of 14) times off the tee and stood over 13 opportunities to break par. He did so six times, all for birdies. The set included conversions from 43'11" at the par-3 seventh hole and 14'2" at the par-4 ninth. The second of his two bogeys was a three-putt from just 15 feet at the par-3 17th. The University of Georgia product signed his card sitting five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 17 - 4:27 PM

Kevin Kisner toured Harbour Town Golf Links in 3-under-par 32-36=68 to establish the early clubhouse lead.

He went out in the second threesome off the 10th tee this morning and traded four birdies with just one bogey. He landed only 10 greens in regulation, so it's the kind of combination of factors that you're going to see with many this week. Kisner's bonus to gamers is that of a greenside magician, so it's not surprising to see him in the hunt on Thursday. His most notable par breaker dropped from 19'5" at the par-3 17th hole. It anchored three consecutive birdies. He started the week sitting 103rd in the FedExCup standings, but he's just 5-for-10 in 2015 with no top 25s.
Apr 16 - 12:09 PM

Kevin Kisner opened the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 3-under-par 34-35=69, posting up just two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

Benefited by the withdrawal of fellow University of Georgia product Bubba Watson on Wednesday (due to the death of another Bulldog, David Miller, to whom the lefty will pay his respects instead of competing at Bay Hill), Kisner made the most of the opportunity today. He traded five birdies with a pair of bogey-4s. The set consisted of conversions from 37'5", 45'8" and 15'2" at Nos. 14, 3 and 6, respectively.
Mar 19 - 4:03 PM

Kevin Kisner has been handed Bubba Watson's tee time in the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Kisner started the week as 10th alternate, and then rose to sixth after four early withdrawals. Fabian Gomez was first alternate, but he and the next four must have declined the opportunity to compete. So, Kisner will be making his debut in the tournament. He's coming off a T60 at Copperhead and hasn't cracked the top 50 in his last eight starts. However, because of a strong start in the fall, the 31-year-old sits 111th in the FedExCup standings. He's scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 8:11 a.m. ET with Adam Scott and Brooks Koepka.
Mar 18 - 6:39 PM

Kevin Kisner returns to the Valspar Championship after missing the cut in his debut last year.

It's been a rough go of it for Kisner in 2015. After a nice run in the 2014 portion of the 2014-15 schedule, he's failed to crack the top 50 in 2015. In fact, he's missed four of his six cuts. Known for being a difficult layout, the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort is typically not a place for one to find their game.
