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. Jul 11 - 6:51 PM

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 Sport.UK.msn.com.

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.

Charles Howell III battled his way to a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his final round at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, taking possession of the clubhouse lead at 10-under 270.

CH3 ended his bogey-free streak at 39 holes when he gave one back on the par-4 third hole. Overall, he buried five birdies against four bogeys, but authored one of the shots of the day when he spun his third from 116 yards in the fairway at the par-5 16th into the hole for eagle. He'll enter a week off having recorded his sixth top 10 of the season.
May 18 - 5:20 PM

Charles Howell III followed up his bogey-free second round with a bogey-free 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

CH3 now has 37 consecutive holes without a bogey at TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas, and his 7-under 203 places him three shots off the 54-hole lead. Surprisingly, Howell III split just four (of 14) fairways but recovered nicely out of the thick stuff all day.
May 17 - 6:44 PM

Charles Howell III fashioned a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

When piled onto his opening 68, CH3 sits 6-under 134, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole lead. He went 3-for-3 in scrambling today and circled four birdies. The only conversion of note was his last. After landing his approach at the par-4 ninth 16'3" from the hole, he buried the putt for birdie. In other words, just another day at the office for Chucky Three Sticks.
May 16 - 6:33 PM

Charles Howell III opened the HP Byron Nelson Championship with a 2-under-par 34-34=68, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

CH3 arrived at TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas leading the PGA TOUR with 42 red numbers this season, so it would have been surprising if he didn't pad that total today. He hit only 10 greens in regulation, but traded three bogeys with five birdies. The par breakers included conversions from 18 feet, 13'8" and 30'4" at the 11th, 13th and 18th holes, respectively.
May 15 - 3:09 PM

Charles Howell III followed his opening 69 at the Wells Fargo Championship with a 1-under-par 35-36=71.

Chucky Three Sticks totaled 14 greens in regulation today, but wrangled only three birdies, all from inside eight feet. He also squared two bogeys, the first of which a three-putt from just inside 58 feet at the par-4 12th hole. Howell III missed five tries inside 10 feet, but reached the halfway point in 4-under 140 and sits five strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
May 2 - 6:55 PM

Charles Howell III turned in a 3-under-par 34-35=69 for his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship to position himself three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Just another sub-70 for a guy that entered the week ranked second with 29 of them on the season. Today's ties idle Harris English for the lead. Howell III hit 14 greens at Quail Hollow and suffered just one bogey while plucking four birdies along the way. His only notable conversion measured 10'11" for birdies at the par-5 fifth.
May 1 - 1:53 PM

Charles Howell III submitted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 for his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

It's never a surprise when CH3 earns our attention, but he's remained stuck on two victories since 2007 despite cashing 308 times. He's 13-for-15 this season and sits 27th in FedExCup points. There are few fans that wouldn't love to trade careers, but the infrequency of hoisting hardware would wear on most egos. In any event, he went 4-for-4 in scrambling at TPC Louisiana today and picked off four birdies, three of which on par 5s. His other birdie fell in from 11 feet at the par-4 10th, his first of the day. He's four swings back of the clubhouse lead.
Apr 24 - 3:38 PM

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.
