Matt Kuchar kicks off his PGA TOUR season by headlining the field at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, México.
With 18 of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking in China for the European Tour's BMW Masters, Kuchar is one of only three in the top 50 in México and the highest ranked at No. 16. It's a rare start at El Camaleón GC for the American having enjoyed a T3 here on last visit in 2008. Kuchar is coming off an up-and-down 2014-15 campaign, where he went winless for the first time on TOUR since the 2011 season. Now, he did post seven top 10s on 25 starts, including a T10 at the season-ending TOUR Championship, but that was his fewest top-10 finishes since five (on 24) in 2009. Four weeks ago, the 37-year-old won the Fiji International on the OneAsia tour by four shots. Nov 11 - 2:37 AM

Matt Kuchar takes his talents to Incheon, Korea, for a third appearance at The Presidents Cup.

Kuchar is just 4-5-1 in his past Presidents Cup matches. He is coming off a down-year, as well, where he earned just 59% of total earnings when compared to the year prior. Luckily, that is all relative as he still yielded top 25s in 14-of-25 starts and missed just one cut along the way. When you combine that consistency with his care-free cheerful demeanor, you can see why Kuchar is one of Team United States' best assets.

Matt Kuchar rallied to post a final-round 2-under-par 36-32=68 to conclude his sixth appearance at the TOUR Championship at 2-under 278, good for a two-way tie for 10th place.

Kuchar began the day at even-par (T10) and a distant eight adrift of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He played his first 10 holes in a birdie-less 1-over, before breaking the ice with a 20-footer at the par-3 11th. He chased with three consecutive at Nos. 13-15, including an improbable 46-footer at the par-4 13th prior to a failed up-and-down at 17. Kuchar missed eight greens on Sunday and landed only six (of 14) fairways but stayed in the top-10 hunt with a stellar 2.777 in strokes gained: putting. The 37-year-old records just his second top 10 in six visits to the Playoffs finale (T10/2012) and seventh of the season on 25 starts. Kuchar went winless for the first time since 2011 and finished a distant 19th in the final FedExCup standings, his worst showing since 2009. He can erase a lot of the bad mojo in two weeks at his third Presidents Cup having been on the winning team in his previous two appearances.

Matt Kuchar readies for his sixth consecutive TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

At 21st in the FedExCup standings, Kuchar is not enjoying his most productive season. He's been his usual self in regards to cashing paychecks, missing just one cut on 24 starts. In fact, Kuchar has not missed more than two cuts in a season since the 2009 campaign. However, he's winless this year (first time since 2011), and his six top 10s is the 37-year-old's lowest total since 2009. Albeit two have come in his last four starts, including T9 at the Deutsche Bank. After opening in 67-67-70 at last week's BMW, the Georgia Tech product collapsed to 4-over 75, continuing a season-long trend where he ranks 117th on TOUR in final-round scoring average.
Sep 21 - 11:57 PM

The opening round of the BMW Championship was halted at 4:22 p.m. CT due to threatening weather in the area. UPDATE: Play has been called for the day. The restart is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. CT on Friday. The second round has been adjusted to begin at 9:00 a.m.

A line of storms has been encroaching all afternoon, so it was only a matter of time before play would be stopped. Only 17 of the 69 golfers on the course (that figures in Jim Furyk's withdrawal hours ago) completed 18 holes. Matt Kuchar is among them. He signed for a 4-under-par 35-32=67 and sits two strokes off the clubhouse lead. He went 5-for-6 in scrambling with a bogey, but compensated with five birdies. All of his conversions today were from inside nine feet.
Sep 17 - 5:35 PM

Matt Kuchar mustered an even-par 34-37=71 in today's final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to log his second top 10 in the tournament and bump to 20th in the FedExCup standings.

Kuchar opened in 69-72 and bogey-free 65, but squared five on the card today to wrap his ninth appearance in the Playoffs era at 7-under 277, eight adrift of champion Rickie Fowler. He began his final frame at 7-under (T11) and would end at 7-under, but bumped to a five-way tie for fourth in difficult scoring conditions. The 37-year-old circled four thru his first 12 holes to camouflage a bogey at the par-3 third, but then swallowed four squares over his last six, including three straight on Nos. 13-15. A closing birdie at the par-5 finisher secured the top-10 finish, his sixth of the season on 23 events and third in his last five starts.
Sep 7 - 8:03 PM

Matt Kuchar tied a career best at TPC Boston with a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to match Hunter Mahan's 54-hole clubhouse mark of 7-under 208.

Prior to today, Kuchar had played 30 rounds at TPC Boston in the FedExCup Playoff era and registered 65 twice (R2/2010, R1/2009). Neither translated into top 10s, but did clip T11 and T15, respectively. After opening in 69-72 this year, Kuchar began Moving Day at 1-under (T34) and 11 adrift. On his round, he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit just 10 greens in regulation, but made the most of the chances he had, circling six for a spectacular 1.400 putts per GIR. His split included a 28-footer to open at the par-4 first, and book-ended it with his fourth circle on his outward half at the par-4 ninth (from 14'9"). The 37-year-old added two more to the card at Nos. 11 and 18, both from inside four feet, to move up 25 places on the live leaderboard.
Sep 6 - 3:09 PM

Matt Kuchar posted a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Sitting 27th in the FedExCup standings, the 37-year-old can position himself as a lock for the finale with a strong week at TPC Boston where he's logged one top 10 and another four top 25s in 11 appearances. He missed only one of the 14 fairways today and landed 15 greens in regulation but owned a dismal strokes gained: putting clip of -1.192 at last check. His four birdies included a 13-yarder from the fringe at the par-5 second, so it didn't contribute to his SG:P measurement. Kuchar signed his card sitting one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.
Sep 4 - 2:20 PM

Matt Kuchar rounded off his 97th PGA Championship with a final-round, 4-under-par 34-34=68 at Whistling Straits, wrapping his seventh PGA at 12-under 276, good for a three-way tie for seventh place.

Kuchar began the day at 8-under (T10) and seven back of 54-hole leader and eventual champ Jason Day. At the conclusion of the festivities, he finished eight adrift on rounds of 68-72-68-68. His T7 is his best finish of the season in the majors, supplanting a T12 at the U.S. Open, and is also a career best at the PGA in seven attempts (T10/2010 Whistling Straits). The American circled four birdies on his loop at Nos. 2, 5, 6 and 10 to offset bogeys at the par-4 ninth and 13th, respectively. The highlight of his round came at the par-5 11th, where after two mighty blows, he rolled in a six-footer for eagle. He ran out of gas thereafter, playing his last eight holes in a birdie-less, 1-over. With 21 events in the books on the 37-year-old's season, Kuchar sits 24th in the FedExCup standings.
Aug 16 - 9:17 PM

Matt Kuchar carded a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in today's opening round of the 97th PGA Championship, finishing with the very early clubhouse lead.

A back injury forced him out of last year's contest at Valhalla, but he's making early amends for gamers he disappointed at the time. Kuchar landed 14 greens in regulation at Whistling Straits today and converted on six of those looks for birdie. Four disappeared from outside 11 feet, the longest measuring 23'5" at the par-3 seventh hole. His only top 10 in six prior starts in this major occurred on this golf course in 2010.
Aug 13 - 1:23 PM

RBC Ambassador Matt Kuchar pieced together a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 12-under 276, currently T7 on the live leaderboard.

Kuchar began his day at 9-under (T16) and six shots adrift. He needed a fast start and didn't get it, squaring bogey on two of his first three holes after missing those greens in regulation. The 37-year-old sandwiched in a gimme birdie from three inches on the par-5 second after nearly holing his third from 107 yards out. He penciled three more on the card at Nos. 5, 7 and 9, each from inside seven feet, but squared double on the par-3 12th to stall his momentum. Kuchar responded with birdies on 13, 15 and 16, all from inside five feet. Of note, his 6'1" conversion at the seventh was his longest roll of the day. Kuchar's stats show 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 GIR, registering 4.214 in strokes gained: tee-to-green, but struggled with the flat stick to the tune of -1.964 at the time he signed his card. He has three RBC top 10s (eight prior appearances), including T4/2014 and T2/2013.
Jul 26 - 5:00 PM

Matt Kuchar put up a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his morning round at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and sits three shots off Thorbjorn Olesen's clubhouse lead.

There are just two par fives on the scorecard at Gullane this week and the Ryder Cup star eagled both. Those threes came at 2 and 16 while, in between, he traded two birdies against two bogeys. In relatively calm conditions in East Lothian, it was a good morning for the Americans as Kuchar joined Jimmy Walker (65), Rickie Fowler (66) and Ryan Palmer (67) inside the top 10 after the early wave finished. The 37-year-old, who was T10 in his last appearance at the Scottish Open in 2011, hit 14 greens in regulation after splitting 11 (of 14) fairways.
Jul 9 - 9:09 AM

Matt Kuchar enjoyed a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the 115th U.S. Open.

He arrived at Chambers Bay in mediocre form, so, of course, he went out and recorded what is now his lowest aggregate in 39 career rounds of this tournament. Kuchar stood over 15 opportunities to score today. He converted four birdies against one bogey and sits two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.
Jun 18 - 5:23 PM

Matt Kuchar looks to tackle a tough Chambers Bay at this week's U.S. Open.

The always smiling Kuchar has pieced together five straight top 30s at the U.S. Open but his form is lacking, relatively, entering the week. He is 15-for-16 on the season, but he has just three top 10s to his name on the season. Kuchar is still one of the game's steadiest talents and should be considered strongly in all formats.
Jun 16 - 7:58 PM

Matt Kuchar is back at TPC Four Seasons for his eighth appearance in the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Kuchar is 7-for-7 at the Byron Nelson, including top 10s in 2011 (T6) and a T7 in last year's edition. Typically, he would be a lock for fantasy rosters, given his course form and a field that contains just 16 of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking. The 36-year-old has eight top 25s on the season in 14 starts, but only three have gone for top 10s, including a solo fifth at the RBC Heritage. Prior to Harbour Town however, his last top 10 was at the Humana Challenge back in January. Kuchar's streak of 23 consecutive paydays ended in his last start at THE PLAYERS and is his only missed cut on the season. He's either due to break out, or his Kuchar-slump may continue. Decisions, decisions.
