Charles Howell III signed for a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to end his week at 4-under 280.
CH3 currently sits on the bubble for a top-10 finish. His final lap around the Copperhead Course featured five birdies and two bogeys, with the rest pars. Highlights included an 11'10" birdie on the par-4 10th and a 22'1" birdie on the par-3 17th. His only top 10 this season entering this week was a T5 at the Farmers Insurance Open. Mar 15 - 3:25 PM

Charles Howell III reached the halfway point of the Northern Trust Open in 1-under-par 71-70=141 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

So what, you ask? Well, until today's 1-under effort that he secured with a four-footer for birdie at the par-4 18th hole, CH3 played 13 consecutive rounds of Riviera Country Club without breaking par. His last red number was a 69 that concluded a T59 in 2009. He's 1-for-5 since with a T66 in 2011. While the final conversion today ended the drought, the more unlikely fell from off the green seven yards away at the par-4 third where he penciled in a 3.

Charles Howell III raced up the leaderboard with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to take the clubhouse lead at 8-under 280.

CH3 circled three birdies and an eagle to just one bogey on his lap around Torrey Pines South. Ironically, the eagle from 3'3" was the shortest of his par breakers. He pitched in from out of the rough for birdie on the par-4 seventh and holed a 13'8" birdie putt on the opening hole. It appears that he will come up one or two strokes short, but expect the veteran to hang around for a while just to make sure he isn't needed for a playoff.

Charles Howell III holds many fond memories of Waialae Country Club and returns for another shot at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

CH3 has a blanket of roses on his mind as he enters this week as the course horse ready to break through. He is a perfect 13-for-13 at Waialae CC with nine of those finishes landing inside the top 15 and reaching the podium on four occasions. Gamers will want to place their full attention in the direction of Howell III this week in Honolulu.

Charles Howell III went through the motions during the Fall Series, securing his spot at 97th in the FedExCup leaderboard.

A disappointing fall for a talent generally known for feasting on weak fields and short-course events. At this time last year, CH3 was 5-for-5 with three top 10s and two other finishes inside the top 35. The Sony Open is always a nice stop for Howell III, but it's hard to rely on him anywhere else after his poor showing during the Fall Series.

Charles Howell III turns his attention to El Camaleón Golf Club for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

After a 4-for-4 start to his 2014-15 campaign, he now heads south of the border to a familiar venue where success has come naturally for him. CH3 has walked away with four top 20s in five trips to El Camaleón Golf Club. Howell III may get overlooked by many gamers this week due to his lack of accuracy off the tee, but he's proven in the past that he can keep navigate the course just fine with his driver tucked safely in his bag for most of the round.

Charles Howell III carded a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Open.

CH3 is renown for opening a season with the pedal floored. However, he played his first 17 holes at Silverado on Thursday in birdie-free 3-over with three bogeys. He then buried a walk-off eagle from 44'2" at the par-5 18th hole. Parlaying that momentum today, he traded six birdies with just one bogey. Howell III converted twice from 13-15 feet for birdie today and added a par save from 10'3" at the par-3 15th. At 4-under 140, he's six swings behind the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Charles Howell III turned in a 3-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

CH3 entered the DBC at 31st in the FedExCup standings, but he ranks first in sub-par rounds. Today's was his 59th of the season. He split only six (of 14) fairways, but stood over 14 opportunities to break par. He converted four times, including rolls of 26'8" and 12 feet at the 18th and third holes, respectively. Howell III signed his card sitting five strokes adrift of the overnight lead.

Charles Howell III became the third to share the clubhouse lead at The Barclays with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round.

He split only half of the 14 fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, but CH3 compensated with seven birdies, three of which from outside 10 feet. His longest dropped in from 23'1" at the par-3 second hole. In fact, he opened with three straight birdies and had four in his first five holes. Howell III has competed in every FedExCup Playoffs and has reached the finale twice. He opened this year's at 33rd in the standings, so we'll see quite a bit of him moving forward. He's the kind of talent whose fantasy value would probably be greater than his actual value if there was a measurement for such a comparison. Veteran gamers completely understand this phenomenon.

Charles Howell III will pay extra-close attention to his driver at this week's Wyndham Championship.

CH3 posted a 6-under 134 last year, to sit five strokes off the 36-hole lead before being informed of his disqualification due to a non-conforming driver. For those who need a reminder, it was a small toe-cap that came off his driver prior to his second round, but he played with the driver regardless. Howell III was on his way to his fourth straight top 35 at Sedgefield, and should find himself right back in the thick of things this week.

Charles Howell III enjoyed a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.

Well, he had a good time in places, shall we say. CH3 hit only 11 greens in regulation and swallowed four bogeys, but he rolled in three birdies and recorded two eagles. The first eagle came conventionally, sort of. He drove the green at the par-4 14th, and then drilled home the putt from 36'6". (Howell III chased that with a par save from 20'6" at the par-4 15th). Then, after circling a birdie-4 at No. 2, he jarred his tee ball from 132 yards for a hole-in-one at the par-3 third. So, he penciled at least one of every digit from 1-6 on today's card. It's the second time in seven weeks that he's recorded two eagles in the same round (first round, Memorial, eagle-2 and eagle-3). At 8-under 134, he's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead at TPC Deere Run.

Charles Howell III twirled a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

When you pair the guy that entered with a TOUR-high 52 rounds under par this season with a course that perennially features the lowest cut, you expect a score in the mid-60s pretty much every round. What makes Howell III's especially impressive is that he hit only 11 greens in regulation and squared three bogeys. Elsewhere, he poured in eight birdies, four of which from outside 10 feet. He set the tone right out of the gate with the longest, converting his try from 21'3" at the par-4 first. His strokes gained-putting split measured 3.826 at last check.

Charles Howell III will not accept an exemption to compete in The Open Championship, according to

CH3 earned the berth via the Official World Golf Ranking a few days ago. He's 4-for-8 in the major with just one top-40 finish (T28, 2011). He opened The Greenbrier Classic with a 3-under-par 33-34=67, so there's nothing wrong with his form.

Charles Howell III will try and tackle Congressional Country Club at this week's Quicken Loans National.

CH3 missed the cut here last year, and posted a mediocre T68 the year prior. Without considering any other factors, it's easy to overlook him when setting weekly rosters. However, it's worth noticing his career-best 301.5 average yards off the tee, ranking 18th on TOUR. It's also hard to overlook his top 30 rankings in scoring average, par breakers, GIR percentage, and par 4 scoring average. Howell III is having his best statistical season to date, and should not be blindly tossed aside by gamers this week.

Charles Howell III rattled Muirfield Village for a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Memorial.

Howell III took a week off after a masterful T3 at the Nelson with four rounds in the 60s. He arrived at Muirfield Village leading the PGA TOUR with 46 rounds below par, so today's addition to that total is no surprise. How he went about it is a little unusual, however. He opened on the back side and traded a kick-in eagle at the par-5 15th and two birdies (from 23'1" at 11 and 13'4" at 17) with bogeys on both par 3s. After opening his inward nine par-bogey, CH3 jarred his fairway approach from 118 yards for eagle at the par-3 third. He parred out, the first ranging 14'3" at 4. Meanwhile, because the eagle hole-out doesn't contribute to strokes gained-putting and he whiffed on three tries inside nine feet, his SG-P clip sat south of 0.000 for the day. The better news is that he's six strokes off the overnight lead.
