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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kevin Kisner enjoyed a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 3-under 137, five adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Webb Simpson and Martin Piller.

The 32-year-old's opening 1-over 71 broke a string of five straight red numbers at Colonial CC but he started a new streak with 66 in R2, matching Jordan Spieth and Piller for the low lap in the two-day second round. The 66 is also his low at the DDI in eight career rounds and is only his third sub-par round since the Sony Open back in January. Kisner was 3-under thru nine holes -- beginning off No. 10 tee -- and 2-under total when play was suspended on Friday. He returned on Saturday to play his final nine in two-birdie one-bogey 34, highlighted by a birdie-birdie finish. The South Carolinian peppered 16 greens in regulation en route to 4.242 strokes gained: total.

Kevin Kisner looks to break out of a slump as he wanders into familiar territory at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Kisner is no stranger to the Charlotte area, as his parents grew up here and his brother-in-law is a member at Quail Hollow Club. Entering the event with six straight stroke-play finishes outside the top 20, this could be a nice landing spot for a rebound. Kisner is not long off the tee (126th in driving distance) but his local knowledge could provide what he needs in order to replicate his T6 from the 2014 edition.

Kevin Kisner cruised to a 2 & 1 victory over Soren Kjeldsen on his professional match play debut at the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Kisner's career had not previously taken him into the perilous waters of head-to-head golf, but at no stage did he ever look lost at sea in his first match. After a 5'6" birdie conversion on the first he tapped in for another red number on the second to be quickly 2 up. The Dane pegged one back with a birdie on three, only for Kisner to convert a third birdie (and hole win) from 6'2" on No. 4 and a fourth by driving the green on the par-4 5th before two-putting to move 3 up. The game ebbed and flowed for a while until Kisner drained a birdie on No. 14 from 10'7" to go 4 up. Kjeldsen is a gritty type and responded with two unanswered birdies, but he was chasing the game and after halving 16 and 17 he had to accept defeat. Kisner will play fellow day 1 winner Rafa Cabrera-Bello next up. Kjeldsen faces a showdown with Hideki Matsuyama.

After three straight birdies on Nos. 3-5, FedExCup leader Kevin Kisner was 3-under total but played his last 13 holes in birdie-less 5-over and at 2-over 144, missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open by two strokes.

Course form (CUT/2015, T55/2012) won this week. Kisner's season form showed first- and second-round scoring averages both at 66.67, so those will suffer a bit after 71 and 73 (33-40) in Scottsdale. His 36-hole stats show T90 in greens in regulation and T94 in strokes gained: putting en route to six birdies (three in each round), against eight bogeys. Joining Kisner on the bench are: 143- Kevin Streelman ... 144- Justin Thomas ... 145- 2007 champ Aaron Baddeley; David Lingmerth; 2010 champ Hunter Mahan; Tony Finau; Jason Dufner ... 146- Graham DeLaet; Jamie Lovemark; Fabian Gomez; Smylie Kaufman ... 154- Jack Maguire (pro debut).

Kisner had three other semi-realistic scoring chances from the 14-foot range on his inward half, but none found the cup. The 31-year-old, who celebrates his birthday in 11 days (Feb. 15th), added a three-footer at the par-5 third before squaring three bogeys over his final five holes, all failed scrambles. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways, but mustered just 13 greens in regulation.

The Georgia Bulldog joined the lead on 15-under with a 35-foot bomb at the par-4 13th but squared his lone bogey at the par-3 17th after airmailing the green and failing to get up-and-down.
