Past champ and World No. 17 Matt Kuchar spun a 7-under-par 31-33=64 in today's final round of the RBC Heritage to conclude on 8-under 276, up 49 places on the live leaderboard to T14 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Kuchar finished T11 and his 64 was the low round of the day.
The RBC Ambassador and 2014 winner was the second-highest-ranked player in OWGR this week to No. 16 Tyrrell Hatton. After opening in 68-71-73, he began T63 on 1-under, seven adrift of the overnight top 10. The Sea Island, Georgia, resident landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 4.487 strokes tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 14 (failed scramble), overpowered by six birdies and an eagle-3 at the second (from 31'8"). This was the Georgia Tech alum's 12th start of the season and seventh top 25. His 64 ties a season low (Phoenix Open/R1) and is currently 7.303 shots better than the field average in the finale. Apr 16 - 3:36 PM

World No. 21 Matt Kuchar aced the par-3 16th (VIDEO link below) en route to a day-tying-low 5-under-par 36-31=67 and a 72-hole total of 5-under 283, up eight places on the live leaderboard to T3 and good for a share of the clubhouse lead with Thomas Pieters. UPDATE: With play completed, Kuchar finished T4, four shots out of a 2-man playoff, and his 67 was tied for the low round of the day.

This was the 38-year-old's 42nd career lap at Augusta National and is a new best, supplanting 68 four times, and matched Hideki Matsuyama for low lap in the clubhouse. It's also his second HIO of the season with the first coming in R3 at the WGC-HSBC. After opening in 72-73-71, the Georgia Tech alum began on even-par (T11), six back of co-leaders Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia. He conjured eight (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, posting a ridiculous 1.28 average putts per hole, even with one 3-putt, offset by the ace of course. Kuchar was making his 45th major appearance with a best of T3 at the 2012 Masters, so he's right on that mark with play winding down. For the week, he totaled 14 birdies against 11 bogeys, adding the hole-in-one at the 170-yard 16th that brought him home in blemish-free 31.

World No. 21 Matt Kuchar crafted a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in the second round of the 2017 Masters to reach halftime on 1-over 145, currently T15 on the leaderboard.

This is the Sea Island, Georgia, resident's 11th appearance with six top 25s and three top 10s among nine prior cashes. He opened Day 1 with three consecutive bogeys but leveled the card with birdies at Nos. 13, 16 and 17. The 38-year-old tacked on a two-birdie three-bogey effort in R2, his 11th straight round of par or worse at ANGC dating back to a third-round 68 in 2014. He squared bogeys at 1, 6 and 11, carding a pair of birdie-4s at 2 and 13. The Winter Park, Florida, native landed nine (of 14) fairways, 11 greens in regulation, and averaged 1.67 putts per hole.

World No. 21 Matt Kuchar is at the Golf Club of Houston for the Shell Houston Open and was 70th (of 71) on last visit in 2015 (67-72-71-78). UPDATE: Kuchar missed the cut by six with rounds of 73-77, his fourth MC in 10 starts this season.

This is the 38-year-old's ninth appearance. He missed his first four cuts but reeled off three straight top 10s between 2010 and 2014, highlighted by a P2 in 2014. He was T2 thru 36 holes in 2014 (66-67) and the 54-hole leader by four (68), but closed with even-par 72, losing in a 2-man playoff (Matt Jones). The Georgia Tech alum is 6-for-9 on the season with five top 25s but just one top 10, a T9 at the Phoenix Open six starts ago. In his last five, he's missed one cut (Pebble Beach), has three finishes in between 20th and 25th, and posted T30 last week in Austin at the Match Play with a 1-1-1 record.

This is the 38-year-old's 10th appearance and improves to 9-for-10 after his second straight 69.

The 38-year-old chased his opening 68 with an up-and-down 71 (two birdie, two bogeys). Thru 54 holes, he's not making a ton of birdies (11), currently T30 in that stat, but is T1 in bogeys with just four. The Georgia Tech alum found 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.615 putts per GIR and 2.242 SG: Putting. He squared a lone bogey at the par-4 fourth (failed scramble) but camouflaged it with five birdies at Nos. 1 and 6 and three straight at 11-13, three from between 13 and 16 feet.
Mar 4 - 4:49 PM

Matt Kuchar cruised to a 3-under-par 35-33=68 during the opening round of this week's World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship.

Kuchar took advantage of the altitude by striping six drives over 300 yards today. From there, he peppered 14 greens in regulation and splashed home four birdies to offset a lone bogey at the par-3 third hole. He avoided a landslide at the following hole when he saved par from 15'11" to regain control of the round. That putt was one of three putts converted from outside 12 feet, walking off the course gaining 3.055 strokes putting.

Kuchar arrives with finishes of T22, MC, and T9 over his last three starts. He's posted under-par rounds in 8-of-11 coming in. Kuchar was last in Mexico City for the 2015 America's Cup where he partnered with Justin Hueber to winning the 72-hole best-ball event by four strokes (34-under-par). The 38-year-old remains a steady option in all fantasy formats.

First-round leader Matt Kuchar rallied for a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to conclude his eighth appearance on 12-under 272, down three spots on the live leaderboard to T10.

The 38-year-old was the 18-hole leader by one with 64 and chased with a pair of 69s to begin R4 on 11-under (T7). He squared back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 2 and 3, but played his final 15 holes in blemish-free 3-under, circling 10, 16 and 18, the latter his long of the day from 7'2". For the week, the Georgia Tech alum totaled one eagle and 17 birdies versus seven bogeys. This is his first top 10 of the season in four starts and second top 25, joining a T21 at the no-cut WGC-HSBC Champions.
Feb 5 - 5:35 PM

First-round leader Matt Kuchar patched together a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 11-under 202, down four places to T7, five adrift of 54-hole leader Byeong Hun An.

The 38-year-old was the 18-hole leader by one with 64 but dipped to a four-way T3 with 69 in R2, one shy of 36-hole co-leaders An and Brendan Steele. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, circling five birdies versus three bogeys. The Florida native circled 4s on each of the three par 5s, each from inside of nine feet, adding a six-footer for birdie-3 at nine and birdie-2 at 16 from 11'10". He dropped shots at 7, 8 and 14 (failed scrambles) and whiffed from 5'0" for birdie at the par-3 12th en route to -0.498 in SG: Putting, the second straight lap he's lost strokes with the flat stick.
Feb 4 - 7:24 PM

Overnight leader Matt Kuchar settled for a 2-under-par 33-36=69 during round two of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, but still sits very pretty in the grand scheme of things on 9-under 133 after two days.

Kuchar raced to the lead after circling five birdies and an eagle on day one. The scoring machine was turned off today, however, as he traded four birdies with a couple of bogeys. One notable blemish came at the 17th where he found water at the driveable par 4. This hole is playing as the easiest on the course, averaging just 3.56 strokes, so Kuchar nearly gave back a shot and a half with his bogey. Overall, his putter never warmed up, either, as he converted just one putt from outside four feet all day. This was a very forgettable round for Kuchar, but he still finds in good position heading into the weekend, currently T3 on the live leaderboard.
Feb 3 - 3:01 PM

Making his first start since November, Matt Kuchar showed no signs of rust en route to a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-31=64 during the opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, taking the solo title of clubhouse leader after 18 holes.

The last time we saw Kuchar on the PGA TOUR he was missing the cut at The RSM Classic in mid-November. Slow starts were a problem during the fall as he found himself T41 or worse after R1 in all three events he pegged it in. A little time off did Kuchar good, as he came out firing today with five birdies and an eagle while maintaining a clean card along the way. Highlights include four putts converted from outside 11 feet, anchored by a 20'7" eagle-splash at the par-5 13th. It wasn't just a hot putter, though, as he gained 2.21 strokes off-the-tee and 2.20 strokes approaching-the-green. World No. 21 was playing his 25th career round at TPC Scottsdale and this goes in the books as his now personal low here, best his previous of 5-under 66 (R1, 2002).
Feb 2 - 7:25 PM

World No. 21 Matt Kuchar is at TPC Scottsdale for his eighth Waste Management Phoenix Open and is making his first start since T3 at the unofficial Hero World Challenge.

The Winter Park, Florida, native is the last hold out to return to action from the 17-man exhibition in The Bahamas, taking nine weeks off after his second T3 in the event. He preceded that with a missed cut (by five) at The RSM Classic where he was the top-ranked player in OWGR and the pre-tourney odds-fave. The Sea Island, Georgia, resident, who went 2-2-0 in the Ryder Cup, also missed the cut at the season-opener in Napa before posting T21 at the no-cut WGC-HSBC Champions. He's cashed five times in seven visits to the Greenest Show on Grass with one top 25 (T6/2009).
