Prior to the start of the event, Scott Brown has removed himself from the field at this week's RSM Classic, citing a rib injury. Marc Turnesa will replace him and tee off at 9:40 a.m. ET on Thursday. UPDATE: Brown returned to action on Jan. 12, 2017 at the Sony Open and posted a T64 on 4-under 276 (70-67-69-70).
Brown was set to make his fifth appearance at the RSM, with a trio of top 20s on his Sea Island resume. That course history likely made him a popular sleeper this week in formats such as DFS, but gamers should now make sure they remove him from all lineups. The Georgia native battled through a back injury over the summer, but cited a rib injury this time around. On the bright side, Brown will have plenty of time to restore his health, as the holiday break will give him at least two months of rest. Wed, Nov 16, 2016 01:40:00 PM

Due to expected weather issues, Monday's final-round tee times at the Deutsche Bank Championship will be between 7:00-9:01 a.m. ET in threesomes off two tees with an approximate finish around 2:00 p.m.

The field of 72 will be split down the middle into 24 groups for Monday's scheduled finale. Scott Brown secured a reservation off No. 1 tee with a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in R3 to reach 7-under 206, up 46 places on the live leaderboard to T16. After opening his fourth consecutive appearance in 71-70, he was one (of 11) to make the cut on the number. The 33-year-old hit ALL 18 greens in regulation en route to 5.051 SG: Tee-to-Green and is the current leader in GIR at 85.19 percent (46/54). He circled six birdies, highlighted by a 19-footer at the par-4 first. Brown's 65 is his best at TPC Boston in 12 laps and ties a season low, which he's shot three prior times, most recently at the Wyndham/R4.

For a second consecutive year, Scott Brown aced the 163-yard par-3 third hole in the final round of the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club.

The 33-year-old made a hole-in-one in last year's finale while paired with Tiger Woods in the penultimate twosome. Incidentally, that was Woods' most recent competitive round on the PGA TOUR. According to TOUR staff, Brown is just the second player in TOUR history to ace the same hole, same course in back-to-back years (Joe Ozaki, 1997-98, par-3 seventh hole at Bermuda Dunes). Brown also kicked off the 2015-16 campaign with the season's first hole-in-one at the CIMB Classic back in October. He's in the clubhouse on 9-under 271 (68-68-70-65) following a 5-under-par 32-33=65, up 28 spots to T29 with play still in progress.

Scott Brown kept the scoring machine turned on for round two of the John Deere Classic, carding a 5-under-par 31-35=66, posting at 10-under 132 to sit two off the pacesetters entering the third round.

The Augusta, Georgia, native split 12 (of 14) fairways but found just 13 greens in regulation. Through two rounds he ranks just T72 in GIR and T28 in fairways hit. The biggest weapon has been his flat stick, gaining 4.396 strokes putting through 36 holes (third in the field). The highlight of today's round was an approach shot though, sticking it to 15 inches from 154 yards at the par-4 eighth, leading to a tap-in birdie. Brown has a pair of top 5s on his John Deere resume, and will now enter the third round in a share of fourth place.

Scott Brown bombarded TPC Deere Run on his way to a 5-under-par 33-32=65 during round one of the John Deere Classic, currently one stroke off the pacesetters at the top.

Brown entered the week with just two starts since the 12th of June (MC/RBC Canadian Open; T25 Travelers Championship). It was likely a combination of scheduling and wanting to rest a back injury that forced him to WD at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Luckily, he had course history on his side, with top 10s in two of his previous four visits to TPC Deere Run. In 14 previous rounds, he's posted par or better in all of them, and today was no different. Brown's main weapon was his flat stick as he rolled in four putts from outside 10 feet, the longest being a 24-foot birdie bomb at the par-3 seventh. He walked off the course gaining 2.72 strokes putting on the day. Due to a three hour and thirty minute weather delay, the afternoon wave is just getting their rounds started, but he currently sits at T4 on the live leaderboard.

Scott Brown returns to action as he turns his attention to this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Brown was last seen at the FedEx St. Jude Classic where he withdrew after 27 holes, citing a back injury. With tough fields to crack since then (U.S. Open, Quicken Loans, WGC-Bridgestone) the 33-year-old opted for rest ahead of the FedExCup Playoff push. Brown already has 514 FEC points banked, which grants him access to the Barclays as 481 was the number required last year. Coming off a back injury and six-week layoff, gamers should probably take the wait-and-see approach with Brown before jumping back in.

Scott Brown has withdrawn from this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic, citing a back injury, he was 8-over through 27 holes at the time of his WD.

Brown opened his week with a 2-over-par 34-38=72 in round one. His inward nine featured two birdies, three bogeys, and a double. Today, he started on that same nine and recorded a triple bogey and three bogeys before calling it quits. Brown also withdrew from sectional qualifying at the Powell, Ohio, site, so we won't see him next week at the U.S. Open, either.

Scott Brown hung up a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Memorial to post 8-under 136, up 24 spots on the live leaderboard to T5, four back of early 36-hole clubhouse leader Brendan Steele.

The 33-year-old opened his fourth appearance with a six-birdie three-bogey 69 which tied a then-personal best at Muirfield Village (R2/2014). He carded six birdies again in the second round against a lone bogey at the par-3 16th (his seventh hole) on a failed scramble -- setting a new mark for him at the Memorial in his 10th career lap. Brown striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, circling birdie-4s at each of the four par 5s and adding birdie-3s on holes 14 and 3.

Scott Brown brings his game to Dublin, Ohio, for this week's Memorial.

Brown is 1-for-3 in his career at Muirfield Village Golf Club, posting a T13 in 2014. More recently, he's found himself in a bit of a slump, missing the cut in three straight, and finishing outside the top 60 the two events prior to that. He currently ranks 121st in strokes gained approach-the-green, so he'll need a lights out effort from his putter if he wants to contend this week.

Scott Brown took a step back in round two of the Shell Houston Open, signing for a 2-over-par 38-36=74 to position himself at T14 on the live leaderboard at 5-under 139.

Brown torched Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course in his opening round but freshening winds and inclement weather made the course play much tougher today. The round was not without highlights, though, including a 21'7" birdies splash on the par-5 15th hole. The trouble came on his inward nine as he rattled off a three-hole bogey train, starting at the par-4 third hole where he missed a 5'11" par-saving attempt. Despite the five-shot swing between round one and two, Brown is still inside the top 15 and not far out of contention entering the weekend.

Scott Brown racked up the birdies on his way toward a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the first round of the Shell Houston Open.

Brown arrived on the heels of four straight top 30s and continued his strong play in round one. It all started on the tee box, as he split 11 (of 14) fairways to put himself in scoring position all day. From there, he was able to land 14 greens and make his fair share of birdie conversions (7). Three of his birdie putts came from outside 16 feet. The most notable circle came on the par-4 18th hole, chipping in from 34'7" to walk off the course with a share of the early clubhouse lead.

Past champ Scott Brown authored a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of the Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach to post 9-under 207, up 17 places on the live leaderboard to T4. UPDATE: With play completed, Brown is in a three-way T3, two back of leader Ian Poulter, and his 67 remained tied for the low round of the day.

The 2013 PR Open winner began Moving Day on 4-under (T21) after beginning his fifth appearance in 71-69. For a third straight round, he found seven (of 14) fairways and is currently T63 in that stat at 50.00 percent (21/42). However, the 32-year-old pelted all 18 greens in regulation in R3 and was No. 1 in the field in GIR at 87.04 percent (47/54) at the time he signed his card. The Augusta, Georgia, native circled six for 1.778 putts per GIR, highlighted by a birdie-birdie finish. His lone bogey was a three-putt on the par-3 16th. Brown's 67 is tied for low lap in the clubhouse with Canada's Nick Taylor and Tony Finau.

Scott Brown overcame a triple bogey-6 to shoot a final-round even-par 38-33=71 at the Valspar Championship for a four-day total of 2-under 282, up one place on the live leaderboard to T8.

Brown was making his fifth Copperhead appearance after missing three cuts, including his last two, and cashing a T27 in 2013. He began Sunday's play on 2-under (T9) after opening in 70-69-72, six in arrears to 54-hole leader Bill Haas. The Augusta, Georgia, native opened with three straight pars before swallowing the triple on the par-3 fourth, taking four shots to reach the surface. He got one back with a 10'9" roll on the par-4 seventh to turn 2-over and exchanged a birdie-4 at 12 (from 6'5") with a failed scramble at the par-3 13th before dropping a 24'8" sidewinder for eagle-3 at 14 which completed his scoring. Brown split nine (of 13) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation, registering a stellar 2.053 in strokes gained: putting at last check. He currently is No. 1 in the field in SGP with a cumulative 6.486.

Scott Brown ripped through Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course on his way toward a 2-under-par 37-32=69 in the second round of the Valspar Championship, reaching 3-under 139 on the week.

Brown kicked off the day at No. 10 and got his tournament total up to 5-under as he stepped on the tee box of his 16th hole of the day. From there he found some trouble and missed a 5'11" bogey-saving attempt, dropping back to 2-under on the round. The flat stick overall came up big today, as he rolled in 10'4" and 17'3" par-saving putts on the par-4 10th and par-4 16th holes, respectively. Brown added three birdie rolls from outside seven feet, as well. The Augusta native walked off the course with a T6 by his name on the live leaderboard.

Scott Brown back-pedaled to a 2-over-par 34-38=72 in today's final round of The Honda Classic for a 72-hole tally of 1-under 279.

The 32-year-old opened his third Honda with 70-67-70 and began Sunday's finale in a three-way T6. Three bogeys and one birdie later, he left with a four-way T10, down four spots on the round. On a positive note, it was the first time he completed all four rounds at PGA National, and although a 72, it was a far cry from his career-worst 15-over 87 (Farmers) the last time he was in contention. For the week, Brown ranked 11th in strokes gained: tee-to-green but T43 in strokes gained: putting, including a dismal -1.776 mark in his final frame. This mirrors his season rankings so if he can get his flat stick in order, there could be further success. For the time being, the Augusta, Georgia, native leaves with his second top 10 of the season on 11 starts.
