Charles Howell III signed for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 following his opening round of the RBC Heritage.
Howell III closed three strokes adrift of the overnight co-leaders. He's the last of 19 golfers inside the top 10 on the leaderboard. He went just 1-for-3 in scrambling, but lassoed four birdies, including conversions from 20'1" and 34'9" at the 10th and sixth holes, respectively. However, he signed his card with a strokes gained-putting split south of -1.000 due to three whiffs inside nine feet. Unless he continues to assault greens in regulation, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him fade. Apr 17 - 6:22 PM

Charles Howell III has cooled off a bit as he turns his attention towards the RBC Heritage.

Veteran gamers have seen this play out over the years many times in regards to CH3. He is a notoriously fast starter on the West Coast Swing, then loses his Superman cape and becomes quite ordinary as the weather heats up. Since his last top 10 this season, he has five starts with two missed cuts and his T14 at the Valspar Championship is his only finish better than a T35. Similarly, he's never cracked a top 10 in eight previous trips to Harbour Town Golf Links.

Charles Howell III has been removed from the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

He faded to a T35 at Bay Hill with progressively higher scores, completing 72 holes in 1-under-par 68-71-72-76=287. CH3 hasn't competed at TPC San Antonio since his debut in 2011 when he took eighth place.

Charles Howell III carded a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

CH3 went just 1-for-5 in scrambling and squared a total of five bogeys (one as a result of a three-putt bogey from just in side 50 feet at the par-3 second hole), but he overcame with six birdies, four of which from outside 15 feet. The show featured conversions of 35'5" and 29'4" at Nos. 17 and 1, respectively. He also curled in a par save from 11'4" at the 14th to help preserve the red number. He reached the midpoint in 5-under 139, good for a spot just inside the top 10 on the leaderboard but nine strokes in arrears of the 36-hole lead.

Charles Howell III turned in a 4-under-par 35-33=68 for his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, finishing six strokes off the clubhouse lead.

CH3 continues to enjoy a fruitful season. Last week's T14 at Copperhead was his sixth top 15-finish; the first five were top 10s. Today at Bay Hill, he landed 16 greens in regulation and holed seven birdies, four of which from outside 10 feet. The highlights of the bunch measured 19'9" and 25 feet at the 10th and 18th holes, respectively. Howell III three-putted twice for bogey, the first from just 8'9" at the par-4 first hole to begin his round. That he rallied is impressive given the fact that he hadn't broken 71 in 13 previous tries in his opening round at Bay Hill.

Charles Howell III navigated the Copperhead Course to the tune of a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Valspar Championship.

Wind is a factor in the final round, so Howell III was fortunate to draw relatively benign conditions early in his round. He took advantage, circling four birdies to just one bogey on his outward nine before recording nine pars coming back to the clubhouse. Tied for 22nd at the time of his posting, it's hard to imagine his score not standing up for a top-20 finish as the later players try and survive a tough golf course.
Mar 16 - 1:15 PM

Charles Howell III is set for his 11th start in the Valspar Championship.

Though he has a T2 and a T6 here in 2009 and 2007, this is typically the time of year where CH3 begins his slow decline back to mediocrity. Savvy gamers are keenly aware that he offers the most value in the winter months on the west coast, often teasing the novices that he is setting up for a huge season that never transpires. While it's always possible that he will turn the page, Howell III still owns just two wins in 401 career events. Somewhere Patrick Reed is laughing.
Mar 11 - 9:35 PM

Charles Howell III spun a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to claim the early clubhouse lead at 13-under 271.

Three Sticks picked up seven birdies and gave back just one bogey on his final lap around TPC Scottsdale. He had a golden opportunity to pad his total down the stretch, but finished his round with five pars despite a reachable par 5 and a short par 4 over that stretch. It appears unlikely that his number will stand, but the leaders have shown their share of nerves as the tournament turned to the back nine. He gained well over two strokes with the putter in the final round.
Feb 2 - 4:38 PM

Charles Howell III fired a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Sony Open and is the first man in the clubhouse at 10-under 270.

While there is virtually no chance his number will result in a victory, CH3 fantasy owners across the planet are breathing a sigh of relief that the popular play will at least post a high finish. His round featured four birdies and 14 pars, failing to convert a birdie on the par-5 18th to end his round. He played his final 54 holes in 11-under after failing to break par in the opener.
Jan 12 - 7:57 PM

Charles Howell III has been splendid to start the 2013-14 season, making each of his five cuts and already netting three top-10 finishes.

Gamers have been teased with this kind of run from Three Stickes before, but he is relatively well known for only winning two times on the PGA TOUR despite enormous potential. The only thing we think we know for sure, is that he will be a great play at the Sony Open. He tied for second in that event in 2012 before dropping into a tie for third in 2013.

Charles Howell III managed a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to wrap up his third top 10 of the young 2013-14 season at 15-under 269.

The three bogeys in his final round were two more than he had in any other round this week, but his five birdies more than erased them. While his 14 GIR were in line with his weekly splits, his eight fairways were below the pace and a possible factor in his three bogeys, where were all on par 4s. Expect him to show up ready to play at the Sony Open, where he has been a proven ATM machine over the years.

Charles Howell III spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and enters the finale three off the lead at 13-under 200.

Three Sticks is no stranger to top-10 finishes, already notching two in his first four starts to begin the 2013-14 season. His third lap around El Camaleón featured five birdies, including four on par 4s. He will try and find his way into the winner's circle for the first time since the 2007 Nissan Open and the third time in his career later today.

Charles Howell III has turned in two 4-under-par 67s to begin the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

CH3 shared seventh place at the CIMB Classic on a track that also features paspalum greens, and he's 4-for-4 at El Camaleón with three top 20s, so that he's 8-under 134 and only four strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders today is almost predictable. Thus far, he's split 21 (of 28) fairways and hit 28 greens in regulation. Howell III has circled 10 birdies against two bogeys, both on the par-4 12th hole.

Charles Howell III posted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of The McGladrey Classic to claim a very early clubhouse lead at 5-under 205.

Chucky Three Sticks circled five birdies to just one bogey on his lap around Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course. He began his day on the 10th hole, and an early birdie from 20'10" on the par-4 11th had him off and running. He also added lengthy birdies from 25'3" and 12'1" on the second and seventh holes respectively. The ball-striking was solid, landing 15 GIR and missing just three fairways.

The final round of the CIMB Classic was delayed a second time due to inclement weather at 5:20 p.m. local time. UPDATE: At 5:58 p.m., the Asian Tour posted the following on Twitter: "As soon as the players are in position, the final round of the #CIMBClassic will resume."

Sigh. Tournament officials were able to sneak in 53 minutes of play following the first delay that lasted three hours and five minutes. When the second stoppage occurred, nine golfers had yet to finish. Charles Howell III was fortunate. He was able to reach the house after the restart, signing for a 4-under-par 34-34=68. He sandwiched bogeys at the eighth and ninth holes with six birdies and will record his second consecutive top 10 (T5, Shriners).
