World No. 231 Scott Brown smoothed a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Genesis Open to post 12-under 272, up three places to joint second, five back of champion Dustin Johnson.
This was the 33-year-old's fourth appearance and first top 10. His previous best was T39 last year (71-69-68-73). It's also his first top 10 of the season in eight starts, seventh straight cash, but first inside the top 40 (T41, Farmers). The Augusta, Georgia, native records his first top 10 on TOUR since T5 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open 47 weeks and 21 starts ago. Incidentally, the PRO is also site of his lone TOUR victory (in 140 career events) back in 2013. Brown began the finale in a four-way T5 on 8-under after laps of 68-68-69. He outpaced a lone bogey-4 at four with birdies at holes 1, 3, 6, 16 and 17, posting 1.545 putts per GIR and 3.566 SG: Putting, pacing the field in the latter with a cumulative 9.808.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 231 Scott Brown crafted a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the two-day second round of the Genesis Open to reach the midpoint on 6-under 136, up 13 places to T6 with play still in progress.

The 33-year-old improves to 3-for-4 at Riviera CC and is looking to better a T39 last year (71-69-68-73). It's also his seventh straight weekend of action, arriving with six finishes between T41 and T64. The Augusta, Georgia, native kicked off with 68 on Thursday, erasing two bogeys with three birdies and an eagle-3, and took all of Friday off (along with 58 others) due to the suspension in play. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.994 strokes tee-to-green. Brown squared a lone bogey-5 at 18 (failed scramble) but camouflaged it with birdies at 11, 12 (from 41'4"), 1 and a walk-off 3 at 9 from 18'8".

Scott Brown caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 5-under-par 32-34=66 during the opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Brown used steady ball-striking (11-of-14 fairways and 15 GIR) to set up plenty of birdie looks. From there, he let his putter go to town, splashing home eight putts from 7'9" or longer. That includes a pair from just under 18 feet. Brown walked off the course gaining a massive 3.775 strokes putting. The 33-year-old entered the week with rounds of 72 or worse in three of his four previous rounds at TPC Scottsdale. With his name inside the top 5 early on in day one, he's in great position to earn his first paycheck at this event.

World No. 223 Scott Brown is in Scottsdale, Arizona, for this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

After missing the cut at the Shriners in his season debut, the 33-year-old has connected four straight paydays but nothing better than T41 at last week's Farmers (71-72-73-70). His last top 10 on TOUR was T5 18 starts (45 weeks) ago at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open. The Augusta, Georgia, native ranks 111th on TOUR in scoring average (71.457) and 130th in birdie average (3.78). He's 0-for-2 at TPC Scottsdale with missed cuts in 2012 and last year (by three) on rounds of 69-76.

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.

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.
