Charles Howell III will make one final push for an Augusta National bid as he readies for this week's Shell Houston Open, needing a win to get into next week's coveted field.
The Augusta, Georgia, native would love nothing more than to win this week at the Golf Club of Houston to earn a spot into next week's big event, played right in his back yard. If only it were that easy, CH3 wouldn't be stuck on two career victories still. There have been too many close calls to even count, but most recent was a T2 at this year's Farmers Insurance Open. On the bright side, the motivation of needing to win this event hasn't hampered him in the past as he's collected top 20s here in four of his last five visits. All winning aside, the reliability of his cut-making is really what gamers are banking on when they draft the 37-year-old. Mar 29 - 5:02 PM

Charles Howell beat Jeunghun Wang 2-and-1 in the third round of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club and then won a dramatic play-off against Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Tyrrell Hatton to advance to a Round of 16 clash with John Rahm.

Howell finally confirmed himself the winner of Group 10 after making birdie at the fifth extra hole to win what had become a head-to-head with Cabrera-Bello. Hatton had been eliminated in bizarre circumstances having stood over a 10'7" putt to go through on the first play-off hole. Not only did he miss it left, the Englishman then accidentally brushed the ball with his putter when about to tap in and called a penalty on himself. Howell and RCB halved the next three holes before Howell finally delivered the killer blow. Earlier, the American had always held the upper hand in his game against Wang. Howell won the second with par and charged 3-up with birdies at 5 and 6 before the Korean hit back with circles at 9 and 10. After losing 13 to a concession, Wang closed the gap to 1-down once more with birdie at 14 but Howell secured his play-off spot with a par at 17. Had Hatton avoided defeat against Cabrera-Bello in the other game, Howell would have been out.

Charles Howell III controlled the tone of the match en route to a 1-up victory over Rafa Cabrera Bello in round two of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, earning his first point of the week.

Playing in blustery conditions at Austin Country Club, CH3 looked unaffected as he circled birdies on the opening two holes to take an early 2-up advantage. He would add just one more birdie over the next 15 holes and even shanked one out of the greenside bunker at the 17th hole, leading to a double bogey. Despite the less-than-stellar play, CH3 still lead the match after 16 of the first 17 holes. He saved the best for last as he nearly holed out his pitch shot from 81'6" to tap-in for birdie and the win. With one point to his name, Howell III will need to beat Jeunghun Wang tomorrow and hope for a loss from Tyrrell Hatton who currently sits at 2-0-0 in Group 10.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 65 Charles Howell III tacked on an even-par 35-36=71 in today's second round of the Valspar Championship to post 4-under 138, down four spots to T10 with play still in progress.

The 37-year-old didn't have his same tee-to-green game on Day 2, dropping from 4.395 in R1 to -0.092. He actually hit one more fairway, seven (of 13), but dipped to 10 greens in regulation, losing 0.943 strokes approaching-the-green. The Orlando resident exchanged birdie-4s at 14 and 1 (from 10'5") with back-to-back bogeys at 17 and 18, both on failed scrambles. He recorded a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and 0.296 SG: Putting, and missed two scoring tries from inside of eight feet.
Mar 10 - 1:07 PM

Charles Howell III concocted a 4-under-par 35-32=67 during the opening round of the Valspar Championship, placing himself inside the top 10 after day one.

CH3 put on a ball-striking clinic today, as he gained 1.049 strokes off-the-tee and 2.980 strokes approaching-the-green. He circled an eagle at the opening par-5 first, but the real highlight came at the par-4 16th where he found himself in some thick rough off the tee. From there, he blasted out from 175 yards and rolled it straight into the flagstick, setting up an easy tap-in for birdie. Howell III never got the flat stick rolling today, but if he can maintain this ball-striking for three more days, he'll be right in the thick of things come Sunday night.
Mar 9 - 6:24 PM

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.

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.
Jan 26 - 6:55 PM

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.
Jan 20 - 4:33 PM

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.

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.

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.
