Brown's opening 64 was his low at TPC Southwind in his 12th career lap, previously 65 in 2015/R1, and a season low in 62 rounds, eclipsing 65 at the Byron Nelson/R3. This was his second career 18-hole lead/co-lead in his 153rd career start, joining the 2016 Farmers, where he eventually finished T49 (66-71-70-87).

Scott Brown blitzed TPC Southwind in round one of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, firing a 6-under-par 31-33=64 to grab a share of the early clubhouse lead alongside Matt Every.

Brown was strong off the tee today, splitting nine (of 14) fairways to give him plenty of healthy looks from the short grass. From there, he found 13 greens in regulation and let his putter run wild. Brown gave himself seven birdie looks from inside 16 feet and converted on all of them, also splashing home a 29'10" birdie bomb at the par-4 ninth. Overall, he walked off TPC Southwind gaining 5.304 strokes putting today. Brown has led/co-lead once on the PGA TOUR (2016 Farmers Insurance Open) and he'd go on to finish T49 that week after a 15-over 87 in the weather-stricken closing round derailed his chances. This also beats his previous best here at TPC Southwind, previously a 5-under 65 posted in R1 of the 2015 edition.

Scott Brown had the first-round lead in sight before doubling the final hole, still walking away with a 4-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

Most gamers would have been thrilled if they were told Brown would open up the week with a 4-under 66, but the way it happened leaves them wanting more. The Augusta, Georgia, native gave himself six birdie looks from inside 16 feet and converted on four of them to go along with a trio of circles coming from 19-to-23 feet. That includes one from just off the green (20'2") at the par-4 ninth. Walking on the 18th tee box at 6-under, Brown proceeded to land his approach in the greenside bunker, 30 feet from the hole. From there, he took four swipes and carded a double-bogey 6 to lose his early lead. Despite the late stumble, Brown is sitting pretty after day one and this easily beats his previous R1-best of 70 here at Colonial CC.

Aiken, South Carolina, residents Scott Brown and Kevin Kisner lost on the fourth hole of the Monday playoff at the Zurich Classic, losing to Cameron Smith and Jonas Blixt who didn't pencil a bogey all week, settling for runner-up honors after posting a four-day tally of 27-under 261.

After a 12-under 60 on a rain-delayed Sunday, this duo had the momentum, but may have used up all their magic in regulation. They had a few good chances today, Kisner missing a 7'6" birdie attempt on the second playoff hole being the closest call. A win would have been the second on TOUR for both Kisner and Brown. Instead, they will share the 3rd-and-4th place paycheck ($411,800 each) and FedExCup points (162.5 each), although no OWGR points will be credited. Next up for the duo is the Wells Fargo Championship at Eagle Point Golf Club as both are currently committed.

Past champion Scott Brown kept his name in the mix at the Puerto Rico Open with a 3-under-par 33-36=69 during round three, claiming a spot inside the top 10 on 12-under 204.

The 2013 Puerto Rico Open champion started his week with rounds of 67-68=145 before today's navigation of Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. With preferred lies in effect, Brown would have loved to hit more than eight fairways today, but still managed to land 13 greens. His biggest asset is always the flat stick and this week is no different as he's swallowed just two bogeys despite ranking T35 in GIR percentage. The Augusta, Georgia, native will have the benefit of knowing he can get the job done at this venue, although he co-led after 54 holes back in 2013 before styling a 2-under 70 to beat the field by one stroke. Tomorrow, he'll play the role of hunter instead, as he starts three strokes off the pace.

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.

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.

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.
