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. Apr 1 - 3:07 PM

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.
Mar 11 - 11:27 AM

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.
Feb 28 - 9:27 PM

Scott Brown carved out an even-par 35-35=70 in the third round of The Honda Classic for a 54-hole total of 3-under 207, up one place on the live leaderboard to T6.

Brown opened his third Honda in 70-67 to sit T7 after two days, five back of 36-hole leader Rickie Fowler. He began his third frame with birdie-birdie -- both from inside of 31 inches -- but played his next 14 holes in birdie-less 3-over, squaring bogeys at Nos. 5, 6 and 11 on failed scrambles. The 32-year-old circled his second (and last) from 5'11" at the par-3 17th to complete his scoring and totaled eight (of 14) fairways and only nine greens in regulation.
Feb 27 - 5:42 PM

Scott Brown authored a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of The Honda Classic to reach the midpoint at 3-under 137, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T7.

Brown co-lead the Farmers four starts ago but swallowed a career-worst 15-over 87 in the two-day finale and fell 48 places to T49. It's been two missed cuts and a T39 at last week's Northern Trust for him to get over it, but he's back in the hunt. The 32-year-old, who's making his third visit to the Honda (MC-2015, T75/MDF- 2014), opened with a three-birdie three-bogey 70 and chased with today's five-birdie against two-bogey effort. He improved to 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation but digressed a tad to 1.833 putts per GIR. Brown chipped-in for 3 at the par-4 second and added circles at Nos. 3, 13 and 14, all from inside of 11 feet, and walked-in a seven-footer at the par-5 18th. His two dropped shots were a failed scramble at the par-3 seventh and a three-putt at the par-4 16th from 45'7".
Feb 26 - 4:48 PM

Scott Brown, the overnight (overnight) 54-hole co-leader, imploded to a 15-over-par 41-46=87 in the two-day final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to mercifully wrap his fourth appearance at 6-over 294, down 48 spots on the leaderboard and 12 shots back of eventual champ Brandt Snedeker.

Brown had not made the cut at Torrey Pines in three previous tries, so his steady appearance on this week's leaderboard thru three rounds (never worse than T4) was a surprise. He co-lead after 18 holes with 6-under 66 (South Course), and shared the top spot again after 54 holes. The 32-year-old had eight holes to complete on Monday beginning at the par-3 11th, and when play resumed he was T7, three adrift of 72-hole clubhouse leader Snedeker. He played those eight holes in 9-over with five bogeys, two doubles and a two-putt par at the 18th. In total, his final frame showed zero birdies (on four greens in regulation), 11 bogeys and two doubles. It was his worst career loop on TOUR in 349 career rounds -- previously 83 in R1 of the 2012 Travelers during his rookie season -- and came at the most inopportune time.
Feb 1 - 5:03 PM

Scott Brown orchestrated a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 9-under 207, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with overnight 36-hole co-leader K.J. Choi.

Making his 112th career start, Brown shares the top spot at Torrey Pines (66-71-70) and is looking for his second win on TOUR (2013 Puerto Rico Open). He co-lead after 18 holes with a 66 on the South Course, and played round three out of the penultimate threesome following a 1-under 71 in round two (North). The 32-year-old, who's playing the weekend here for the first time in his fourth try, began his third frame two adrift of Choi and Gary Woodland. He circled five on the card -- for a field-leading 17 birdies thru 54 holes -- and while the leaders were struggling, it proved more than enough to offset three bogeys. Brown is 1-for-2 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes, winning the 2013 PRO and finishing T10 after the 2015 PRO.
Jan 30 - 6:29 PM

Overnight co-leader Scott Brown bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 36-35=71 on Torrey Pines North Course for a 36-hole tally of 7-under 137, down three spots on the leaderboard into a three-way tie for fourth.

Brown co-lead with Andrew Loupe after 18 holes, posting a tidy 6-under 66 on the South Course, which played to a first-round average of 73.359. It was his first 18-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR in his 112th career start. On day two, he was unable to take advantage of the easier North Course (R1 average: 70.897) but did battle back from a mid-round struggle. The 32-year-old, who's never made a weekend here in three previous tries, got off on the right track with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 3 and 4, but gave them back with bogeys at 6 and 7, with missed shorties for par. He also missed a three-footer for birdie at the fifth. Brown squared his third (and last) bogey at 13, but responded with par breakers on 15 and 18 for his final tally. He landed just five (of 14) fairways but mustered 14 greens in regulation and after posting a 1.385 mark in putts per GIR in R1, cratered to a 1.857 on day two.
Jan 29 - 6:38 PM

Scott Brown dismantled the South Course at Torrey Pines with a 6-under-par 30-36=66 to surge up the leaderboard during round one of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Brown and his wife Allison welcomed in the birth of their second child last week, so the nappy factor is certainly in effect here. He was playing on the tougher of the two courses this morning, but no one told him that. Opening on the back nine, he got out to a 2-over start through six holes before turning on the gas. He came in with a 6-under 30 on the front nine. Brown will have the luxury of a Friday tee time on the easier North Course at Torrey Pines so he's certainly in great position to extend this lead tomorrow.
Jan 28 - 5:13 PM

After a sluggish start to the 2015-16 season, Scott Brown has rebounded with top-20 finishes in each of his last two starts.

The 32-year-old opened his fifth season on the PGA TOUR with a missed cut by five at the Frys.com (70-77) and a T73/MDF at the Shriners (68-71-74), missing the 54-hole cut by two. He responded with a T5 at the OHL Classic on rounds of 67-67-68-68 and a T18 at The RSM Classic (67-72-65-69). All told, he's par-or-better in his last 12 rounds on TOUR. The Augusta, Georgia, native's win at the 2013 Puerto Rico Open remains his only W in 110 career TOUR events, but he has added a third-place finish in each of the last two seasons.

Scott Brown fired a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the third round of The RSM Classic in Saint Simons Island, Georgia, to post 8-under 204.

After opening in bogey-free 67 and 72, the native Georgian began Moving Day at 3-under (T53). A late arrival to Sea Island Resort after last week's Monday finish in México, where he finished T5, Brown circled six on a breezy Saturday to camouflage a lone bogey. With 87 players making the 36-hole cut, the field went threesomes off both sets of tees with the 32-year-old beginning on par-4 10th. On his round, he converted six chances on 14 greens in regulation, highlighted by five birdies on a bogey-free first nine, including three straight on 15-17. After the break, he exchanged birdie at five with bogey-6 at seven for his final tally. Brown currently sits T12 on the leaderboard, up 41 spots on the day. His 65 is low loop in the clubhouse with about two-thirds of the field still on the course.

Scott Brown twirled a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the weather-delayed final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to wrap his fourth appearance at 14-under 270, four swings back of eventual champ Graeme McDowell.

The native Georgian gets a late start, but heads to this week's RSM Classic in Sea Island off the heels of his latest top-five finish. Seven starts ago, Brown went T3 at the Wyndham and rode that into the FedExCup Playoffs, but he exited with a missed cut (The Barclays) and a T69 at the Deutsche Bank. Coupled with his MC-T73-T56 to open this season and uninspiring course form at El Camaleón GC, this week's finish comes as a surprise. After opening in 67-67-68, Brown was 11-under (T8) and five adrift. In the two-day finale, he circled four, including three straight on Nos. 5-7, to squash a lone bogey at the par-4 16th and bump three places. For the week, the 32-year-old finished a distant T48 in total birdies (15), but bagged one eagle and only three bogeys, T2 in the field in that latter category.
