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. Nov 19 - 4:33 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee and playing the Seaside Course, Charles Howell III painted a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of The RSM Classic to post 10-under 132, up 16 places to T7 with play still in progress.

The 37-year-old is making his seventh straight appearance and has three top-10 finishes: a T9 last year (67-70-67-68), T7 in 2012, and T6 on debut in 2010 (70-65-72-62). He arrived off season-best T7 last week in Mexico in his fourth start of 2016-17. The Oklahoma State product kicked off with a bogey-free 5-under 67 (Plantation Course) and outpaced two bogeys in R2 with seven birdies on seven (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation.

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.
Nov 5 - 7:17 PM

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.
Aug 24 - 8:03 PM

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.
Jul 7 - 7:22 PM

Charles Howell III torched Congressional Country Club with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, reaching 2-under 140 at the midpoint.

CH3 was in serious danger of missing the cut after an opening 3-over 74. He didn't let that affect him this morning as he traded six birdies and an eagle with three bogeys. He played the par 5s at 3-under thanks to a 265-yard approach on the 16th hole that lead to a 2'4" tap-in eagle. In addition to the eagle, he also holed out from off the green twice for birdie, first from 26'10" at the par-3 second and then from 57'6" at the par-5 ninth. CH3 was sitting at 6-under on the day before finding water at the last and swallowing a bogey. Regardless of the finish, Howell III is now safe to survive the cut, and provided gamers with plenty of scoring today.

Charles Howell III hung up a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 13-under 267, up nine spots to T4 with play still in progress.

The 36-year-old finished a personal-best T3 here in 2014 on rounds of 68-66-69-67. He opened this week with a new low of 65 at TPC Four Seasons and tacked on 70 and a pair of 66s. For the week, the Oklahoma State product totaled 17 birdies and one eagle against six bogeys, and will earn his fifth top 10 of the season in his 19th start and first since T7 in Houston at the Shell.
May 22 - 5:35 PM

Charles Howell III fired a bogey-free 5-under-par 31-34=65 during the opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to place him just two strokes shy of Sergio Garcia at the top.

CH3 opened on the back nine and grinded out eight pars with one birdie added at the par-5 16th hole. The fireworks occurred right after the turn, as Howell III holed out from 129 yards for eagle at the par-4 first hole. He added two more circles coming into the clubhouse, the longest from 5'4" which happened to be his only putt made from outside five feet on the day. Despite the lack of lengthy putts, he was still slightly above average on the greens, which tells us his lag putting was on point, but he couldn't convert from long distance. Sitting just two strokes back, Howell III is in great position to strike as the week progresses, especially if he can start to hole some putts.
May 19 - 7:51 PM

Charles Howell III carved out a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the three-day third (and final) round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to conclude his 14th appearance on 10-under 206, down seven on the live leaderboard to T11.

Howell III is a two-time runner-up in NOLA most recently in 2009. He began the third round in a six-way T4 on 8-under, four adrift of 36-hole leader Brian Stuard. The 36-year-old found just half (of 14) fairways and a week-low 11 greens in regulation for a disappointing -1.916 in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. He salvaged the round gaining 2.057 strokes with the flat stick, circling four against two squares, three from inside of eight feet and a long of 20 feet at the par-4 fifth. CH3 leaves TPC Louisiana with a remarkable 12th top 25 of the season in 16 starts.
May 2 - 11:31 AM

Charles Howell III carved out a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the two-day second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 8-under 136, up one on the leaderboard to T4, four in arrears of 36-hole leader Brian Stuard.

Howell is a two-time runner-up at the Zurich and opened his 14th visit in 67. He began his second round off No. 10 and was even-par at the turn (one birdie, one bogey) when play was suspended due to darkness. The 36-year-old returned on Saturday morning and played his inward half in bogey-free 3-under. He circled birdies on holes 2, 5 and 7, all from 10'0" and in.
Apr 30 - 12:28 PM

Charles Howell III styled a 5-under-par 32-35=67 during the opening round at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

CH3 entered the week fourth on the all-time money list at the Zurich Classic. He showed exactly why he's so high on that list, rattling off four birdies, an eagle, and just one bogey. Most impressive was a four-hole, birdie-or-better train that kicked off on the par-4 fifth and included three putts made from outside 10 feet. The longest was a 21'3" birdie roll on the sixth hole but his approach shot on the par-5 seventh may have been most impressive. He stuck the 228-yard approach to 11'6" to set up a nice eagle splash. Howell III arrived with top 25s in three of his last four starts and there is no signs of slowing down.
