World No. 94 Charles Howell III styled a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to wrap on 10-under 278, up 11 places on the live leaderboard to T2, three shy of 72-hole clubhouse leader Jon Rahm, who shot 65. UPDATE: With play completed, Howell III finished in a two-way T2, three adrift of champion Jon Rahm.
The 37-year-old was runner-up here in 2005 and 2007, coincidentally, 2007 was also the last year he won on TOUR, claiming his second title at nearby Riviera CC. He's not going to win, but it's his seventh top 10 in 15 appearances and 10th top 25. After opening in 67-74-69, the Augusta, Georgia, native began the final round on 6-under (T13), the fourth straight tourney he's been in the top 15 thru 54 holes. He circled birdie-3s at Nos. 1 and 5, both from inside of 10 feet, before squaring a lone bogey-4 at 11 (failed scramble), and then dropped a 64'11" bomb from the fringe at 13 for eagle-3. Howell III wrapped with an up-and-down birdie from 6'11" at the par-5 18th for a stellar 3.869 SG: Putting in R4. This is his third top 10 of the season in seven starts and sixth straight top 15. His previous best was T7 at the OHL Classic. Jan 29 - 5:52 PM

Charles Howell III breezed through the North Course at Torrey Pines with a 5-under-par 32-35=67 during round one of the Farmers Insurance Open.

CH3 guided this round with steady play off the tee, finding 10 (of 14) fairways on the day. From there, he landed 13 greens in regulation and went 4-for-5 scrambling. The highlight for DFS owners came on his way into the clubhouse, as he rattled off a birdie train that started at the par-5 fifth and last four holes. Howell III arrived with a 14-for-14 record at the Farmers and he's well on his way to a perfect 15. Next, he'll turn his attention to the tougher Torrey Pines South on Friday.

Playing La Quinta Country Club, World No. 97 Charles Howell III carded a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's second round of the CareerBuilder Challenge for a two-day total of 9-under 135, up three places on the live leaderboard to T8.

The 37-year-old opened his 12th appearance with a bogey-free 5-under 67 on the Stadium Course and began R2 off No. 10 tee. He circled birdies on Nos. 13, 15 and 17 before giving two back with back-to-back bogeys at 1 and 2. The Oklahoma State product rebounded with three more birdies on holes 4, 6 and 9, completing his lap with eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation.

World No. 104 Charles Howell III authored a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach 16-under 264, up four places to T6 with play still in progress.

After opening in 65-66, the 37-year-old improved to 16-for-16 at Waialae CC. He tacked on a three-birdie one-bogey 68 to begin the final frame in a six-way logjam on 11-under (T10). The Augusta, Georgia, native landed nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, recording 4.239 SG: Tee-to-Green, but -0.991 SG: Putting. He squared a lone bogey-4 at the fourth but erased it with birdies on Nos. 7, 9, 11, 12, 14 and 18. Five of the six dropped from inside of nine feet, adding a 21-footer from off the green at the par-3 11th. This will be CH3's ninth top 10 at the Sony, first since T8 in 2014, and second of the season in six starts (T7, OHL Classic).
Jan 15 - 9:43 PM

Course horse Charles Howell III continued his move up the leaderboard at the Sony Open in Hawaii with a 4-under-par 32-34=66 during the second round, arriving at the midpoint on 9-under 131 which is good for T3 at the moment with play still in progress.

CH3 arrived with a 15-for-15 record at Waialae Country Club, including seven top 5s. He's continuing to build that resume this week, trading 13 birdies (6 today) with four bogeys (2 today). You would think he's peppering flagsticks with those kind of birdie numbers, but in fact he's losing strokes to the field approaching-the-green and he's landed just 25 greens in regulation (T88 in the field). The flat stick has been bailing him out as he currently ranks eighth in the field in regards to strokes gained putting. Looking at past Sony Open's, Howell III doesn't slow down when he gets off to a quick start. He's previously positioned himself T7 or better thru R2 on five occasions here at Waialae and all five times he finished inside the top 5 by week's end.
Jan 13 - 5:25 PM

World No. 104 Charles Howell III is a perfect 15-for-15 at the Sony Open in Hawaii with 10 top-25 finishes.

The Augusta, Georgia, native is one (of four) in the field that have competed in every Sony Open since 2002 (Jerry Kelly, Pat Perez, Rory Sabbatini). He's a 2-time runner-up (2012, 2007) and has two third-place finishes (2013, 2005) among eight top 10s. In 56 rounds, the Oklahoma State product's scoring average on the par-70 layout is 67.70. He arrives off a run of three straight top-15 finishes on TOUR, sandwiching a T7 at the OHL Classic with a T15 at the Shriners and a T13 at The RSM Classic (67-65-67-71).
Jan 11 - 11:51 AM

Charles Howell III orchestrated a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to post 13-under 199, up one spot to T6 with play still in progress.

The 37-year-old was bogey-free 4-under thru 12 holes, birdieing three straight on Nos. 7-9, including a 31-footer for birdie-3 at the ninth, and added a 34-foot unconventional birdie at the par-4 11th from the right intermediate. He stalled out a bit from there, playing his final seven holes in 1-over, outpacing a two-putt birdie at 15 with bogeys at 13 (3-putt from 51'3") and 17 (failed scramble). The Augusta, Georgia, native landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 3.174 strokes tee-to-green but losing 0.565 strokes with the flat stick.

Charles Howell III fashioned a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in today's final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba for a four-day total of 16-under 268, up seven spots to T7 with play still in progress.

This was the 37-year-old's eighth straight appearance and is now 7-for-8 and records his second top 10, joining a T6 in 2014. He was making his fourth start of the season with a previous-best of T15 last week at the Shriners. The Orlando resident began the final round T14 on 11-under after opening in 69-64-69 and erased a lone bogey-6 at the 13th with six birdies, including four consecutive on holes 3-6 and a walk-off 3 at the 18th. For the week, he totaled 24 birdies against just three bogeys, currently T1 in that stat, but had a double bogey-6 and a triple bogey-7.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Charles Howell III styled a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-30=64 in the second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 9-under 133, up 32 places on the live leaderboard to T4.

The 37-year-old is making his eighth straight appearance in Mexico with a best of T6 in 2014 (and lone top 10). He arrived off a season-best T15 last week at the Shriners. The Augusta, Georgia, native kicked off his opening lap with a birdie and triple bogey-7, before playing his final 16 holes in blemish-free 4-under. He circled seven today on 16 greens in regulation and is now bogey-free over his last 34 holes. CH3's 64 is his lowest round on TOUR since opening with 64 at last season's Sony Open back in January.

Charles Howell III orchestrated a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach 12-under 201, up six places on the live leaderboard to T6.

The 37-year-old is making his 16th appearance in Vegas with pair of fifth-place finishes, most recently a T5 in 2014. This is his third event in 2016-17, opening with a missed cut at the Safeway and a T39 two weeks ago at the CIMB. The Augusta, Georgia, native kicked off with twin 67s, including a blemish-free lap in R1, and tacked on his third straight 67 with five birdies outpacing a lone bogey-4 at the eighth (failed scramble). For a second consecutive round, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.744 putts per GIR and 1.944 SG: Putting. Four of Howell III's five conversions traveled greater than 10 feet with a long of 35'2" at the par-4 first.

Charles Howell III used a late-round birdie train to record a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during round one of the BMW Championship.

CH3 split just three (of 14) fairways and landed just 10 greens in regulation. Early in the round his score was reflecting that poor ball-striking as he found himself 1-over through 13. From there, he rattled off a four-hole birdie train that included two putts made from outside 14 feet and a chip-in birdie from 21'8" at the par-3 17th. The 37-year-old will be very pleased to escape this round in red numbers and will likely find himself inside the top 15 entering round two.

Charles Howell III arrives at Crooked Stick Golf Club ranked 48th in the FedExCup race as he preps for this week's BMW Championship.

After an undisclosed medical procedure forced him to miss two months of action, CH3 returned to miss the cut at The Barclays but rebounded last week to post a T24 at the Deutsche Bank Championship. It was his career best at TPC Boston (during FEC Playoffs era), so his form appears to be back to normal. Now he'll head to Crooked Stick Golf Club, where he's never played in competition since he failed to qualify back in 2012 when it last hosted. Luckily, he ranks 16th in driving distance and 18th in strokes gained around-the-green, both could prove useful this week as he looks to tackle the 7,567-yard layout.

Charles Howell III is in the published field at this week's The Barclays at Bethpage State Park. UPDATE: At 5-over 73-74=147, Howell III missed the cut by two shots and drops from 39th in the FedExCup standings to 50th.

The 37-year-old is scheduled to return from a nine-week absence following an undisclosed (minor) medical procedure. His last action was a T75 at the Quicken Loans National in June (74-66-75-75). The Augusta, Georgia, native is one of only 16 players to qualify for all 10 editions of the FedExCup Playoffs, checking in at 39th in the FEC standings. He's 19-for-22 on the season with 13 top 25s and five top 10s, most recently a season-best T4 at the Byron Nelson. CH3 has no top 10s in nine attempts (in the FEC era) at The Barclays with a best of T18 in 2011 (Plainfield CC). He was T54 in the 2012 edition at Bethpage Black on rounds of 71-69-77-70.

Charles Howell III has undergone an undisclosed medical procedure and will be out of action for at least a month, hopeful to return in time for the FedExCup Playoffs.

CH3 finished T75 at Quicken Loans National two weeks ago and has now removed his name from the list of alternates for next week's Open Championship, as reported by the Associated Press. His management company, 4Sports & Entertainment, did not specify what procedure was needed, but they did clarify that it was just a minor procedure. Howell III currently ranks 31st in the FedExCup standings, so qualifying for the Playoffs will not be an issue. The biggest concern for gamers will be potential rust from missing over a month of competitive action. CH3 has reached the TOUR Championship just twice since the FedExCup Playoffs began in 2007.
