Matt Kuchar reached the midpoint of the Travelers Championship in 7-under-par 66-67=133 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
He went bogey-free on Thursday with an eagle from 52'1" at the drivable, par-4 15th hole. Today's loop featured four birdies, including respective rolls of 15'3" and 10'8" at Nos. 1 and 6. However, Kuchar squared his first (and only) bogey at the par-3 16th. He found the bunker right of the green in both rounds, but failed to get up and down today. While he has just the one victory (RBC Heritage) this season, he's arguably the most valuable fantasy investment on the PGA TOUR. Jun 20 - 2:27 PM

Matt Kuchar signed for a 1-over-par 34-37=71 in the third round of the U.S. Open and enters the finale at even-par 210.

Kuchar bounced back from back-to-back bogeys to start his day with birdies on three and four, then added a third birdie at the par-3 ninth to make the turn at 1-under. After pars on the first six holes of Pinehurst No. 2's back nine, he suffered bogeys on 16 and 17 before a par at the 18th. He has digressed in each of his first three rounds, opening with a 69 and finding a 70 in the second round. He will try and score his first major championship title in Sunday's final round.

Matt Kuchar signed for an even-par 34-36=70 following his second round of the U.S. Open.

With birdies at the par-4 11th and third holes, Kuchar sat bogey-free 2-under through 14, but bogeys at 6 and 7 and pars at the last two holes prevented another sub-70. At 1-under 139, he's nine strokes off the 36-hole lead, but tied for 10th.
Jun 13 - 7:06 PM

Matt Kuchar turned in a 1-under-par 32-37=69 for his opening round of the U.S. Open.

Kuchar was bogey-free 3-under through nine. He sustained the blemish-free round with pars on the first six holes of his inward nine before settling for bogeys at 16 and 17. He signed his card sitting one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders. It's the first time in his 12 appearances in this tournament that Kuchar has painted a red number in the lid-lifter. Granted, breaking par in any round of the U.S. Open is challenging, but today's effort speaks to the form that he's exhibited en route to a TOUR-leading nine top 10s this season.

Matt Kuchar has been removed from the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

It's notable on its own that he's out of the tournament, but that he was a late entry makes today's news doubly odd. A conspiracy theorist would suggest that he added his name to the field as sort of a favor to tournament director Phil Cannon, who was recently diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer that has spread throughout his body. Kuchar's name on any field sheet would help sell a few tickets. But that's an angle that would never be confirmed. Whatever the case, we'll probably learn why Kuchar made this decision in advance of next week's U.S. Open.

Matt Kuchar has been added to the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Kuchar is a late entry. The tournament's website reported on Friday that the seven-time PGA TOUR winner had phoned in his intent to play, but his inclusion is only official when the TOUR publishes it, which it did this morning. This will mark his first appearance at TPC Southwind since 2007.
Jun 2 - 12:03 PM

Matt Kuchar settled for a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in his final round of the Memorial.

At 6-under 282, the defending champion will be fortunate to leave town with a top 20. He landed only nine greens in regulation today en route to an eagle and three birdies, but closed bogey-bogey. His only notable par breaker measured 11'6" for birdie at 4, while his longest conversion stretched 17'3" for par at the par-4 ninth. After four consecutive weeks on the road, Kuchar will rest this coming week. Look for him again at Pinehurst No. 2 for the U.S. Open.
Jun 1 - 3:42 PM

Matt Kuchar opened his title defense of the Memorial with a 2-over-par 39-35=74.

Sigh. This isn't quite how he was supposed to make a run at repeating. Kuchar hit only half of the greens in regulation and it cost him in the form of three bogeys and two doubles. That he wrangled five birdies was nothing short of impressive given the infrequency of his chances. His longest conversions dropped in from 41'4" at the sixth hole and 13'5" at 7. He even saved par from 10'1" at 12. This is his first round of par or worse at Muirfield Village since a 73 in the first round in 2009; he'd recover to finish T5. It's his highest aggregate this season since he capped a T5 at the Masters with a 74. Kuchar signed his card today sitting eight strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Matt Kuchar returns to Muirfield Village to defend his title at the Memorial Tournament.

Kuchar had posted four consecutive top 10s in this event, including a runner-up in 2012, before winning the Memorial last year. He also did that on the heels of a runner-up finish at the 2013 Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, so all of the right trends were converging. While he's been hot the past few months, Kuchar surprisingly missed the cut at Colonial last week. It's likely too early to read too much into that failure, and he should get back on the horse this week.
May 26 - 10:31 PM

At 2-over-par 72-70=142, Matt Kuchar missed the cut on the number at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Hey, it happens. Despite nine top 10s in 14 starts this season, he's also missed two cuts. It's why they stick the pegs in the ground. Kuchar split 14 (of 28) fairways and hit 24 greens in regulation at Colonial this week, but outbalanced six birdies (three in each round) with eight bogeys. Other notables that fell short include: 142--1985 and 1996 champ Corey Pevin; Kevin Na; Kevin Stadler; Brian Stuard; Ryo Ishikawa; Paul Casey ... 143--2007 champ Rory Sabbatini; Steven Bowditch ... 144-1999 champ Olin Browne; Pat Perez; John Huh; Nick Watney ... 145--Seung-yul Noh ... 146--Matt Every ... 154--Chesson Hadley ... 155--Rickie Fowler ... 157--1987 champ Keith Clearwater.

Matt Kuchar coasted to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the HP Byron Nelson, finishing the week at 8-under 272.

It was a routine round for Kuchar as he rolled in 14 pars and swallowed just one bogey. The highlights of the round included a 14'7" birdie and 17'10" birdie on the par-4 ninth and par-3 17th, respectively. Kuchar's remarkable run continues as we can jot this down as his eighth top 10 in 12 stroke-play events.
May 18 - 5:10 PM

Matt Kuchar sits 4-under-par 69-67=136 at the break of the HP Byron Nelson Championship, two strokes adrift of the quintet sharing the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

We don't need to rehash his recent form, so simply continue to reap the rewards. Today's walk around Las Colinas featured 16 greens in regulation and five birdies, including beauts from 37'11" and 26'7" at Nos. 15 and 1, respectively. He also squared two bogeys, including a three-putt from just outside 39 feet at the par-4 fifth hole, but gamers will entitle Kuchar to a few gaffes on the way to the ATM.
May 16 - 3:07 PM

Matt Kuchar splashed in from the greenside bunker on the 72nd hole to secure a one-stroke victory at the RBC Heritage.

At last! After three consecutive close calls, Kuchar finally got his. He was nearly perfect on the front nine with six birdies for a 6-under 30 before coming in at 34 on the back and post a 64. He was bogey-free and flushed his tee ball to 51 inches at the par-3 17th, but promptly three-jacked for bogey. It seemed to be just another chapter of disappointments, especially when he landed his approach at the last 19 yards short and in the sand. But the golf gods finally acquiesced when his blast landed softly and curled in for a closing birdie and 11-under-par 273. He started the day four strokes in arrears of 54-hole leader Luke Donald, who settled for runner-up honors. While Kuchar would have eventually qualified for the PGA Championship, today's win clinches that berth.
Apr 20 - 5:03 PM

Matt Kuchar got back on track with a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the RBC Heritage.

Kuchar plodded along to the tune of 15 pars for the round. He rolled in birdie conversions from 6'7" on the par-4 third and then again from 17'10" on the par-4 sixth. He improved to 4-under 209 and continues to find himself in contention week after week. Kuchar will begin the final round four strokes off the lead.
Apr 19 - 6:57 PM

Eighteen-hole leader Matt Kuchar chased his opening 66 at the RBC Heritage with a 2-over-par 41-32=73 to post 3-under 139, two strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Kuchar admitted after play was suspended on Friday that the stoppage was good for him. He squared double bogeys at the par-3 fourth and par-4 sixth holes as a result of finding water off both tees. He also bogeyed No. 8 when he rinsed his approach into the par 4. However, he converted four birdies coming in before settling for a two-putt bogey at the par-4 18th. His most notable par breakers measured 36'1" and 25'6" at the 14th and 17th holes, respectively.
