Matt Kuchar reached 1-1 on the week with a 3-and-2 victory over Stephen Gallacher in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.
This was a clean match before the turn. Both were bogey-free and Gallacher enjoyed a 2-up margin. The tides turned on 10 where the Scot conceded the hole. Now sparked with some momentum, Kuchar evened the match with a birdie-3 at 11. He then chipped in for eagle from in front of the green at the drivable, par-4 12th for a third straight win. Down a hole, Gallacher took the 13th with par, but Kuchar ran the table with a concession at the par-4 14th, a birdie-win at 15 and a match-ending par at the par-4 16th. It also closed out Gallacher's chances of advancing. He's 0-2 entering Friday's third round against Ben Martin (1-1). Kuchar draws arguably the hottest golfer at TPC Harding Park in Hunter Mahan (2-0). Apr 30 - 8:04 PM

Matt Kuchar rounded off a solid week in defense of his RBC Heritage title signing for a final-round, 3-under-par 33-35=68 and posted 14-under 270, good for solo fifth.

Kuchar was part of a three-way tie for second entering the final round, three shots adrift of the 54-hole leader. He circled five birdies through his first 13 holes, including back-to-back conversions on the par-4 12th and 13th holes to be right in the mix. Unfortunately, the 36-year-old ran out of steam, bogeying two of his last five to drop out of contention. On the round "KUUCH" split 10 (of 14) fairways but mustered only 10 greens in regulation, not the recipe for success that he was looking for.

Matt Kuchar rode six birdies to a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of the RBC Heritage to post 11-under 202, three shots off the pace of the 54-hole leader.

Kuchar, the defending champion, entered the round four shots back of the overnight leader and playing partner Troy Merritt. After circling six birdies against one bogey and one double, he was able to trim that margin to three. For the second-consecutive round, the 36-year-old birdied all three par 5s. A two-putt double on the par-3 seventh briefly derailed his chase, but he quickly grabbed those two shots back with consecutive birdies on Nos. 8 and 9. Kuchar's last blemish on the card came on the par-4 10th failing to convert a sand save from the greenside-bunker. Once again, he immediately bounced back, adding his fifth birdie of the round on the par-4 11th. On the day, he manufactured a remarkable score considering he found the short grass only six (of 14) times and could hit just 11 of 18 greens in regulation.

Matt Kuchar added a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the RBC Heritage to post 8-under 134, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Quite simply, Kuchar piled on today. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation en route to six birdies, including on all three par 5s. The longest of his three birdies from outside 10 feet dropped in from 21'3" at the par-5 fifth hole. While he dropped a shot at the par-3 seventh -- his only square of the round -- Kuchar followed with a par save from just outside 10 feet at the par-4 eighth.
Apr 17 - 12:56 PM

Matt Kuchar opened his title defense of the RBC Heritage with a 3-under-par 35-33=68, coming to rest just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The 36-year-old has been in a bit of a rut -- for him -- but he snapped out of it today. Kuchar went 4-for-13 in scoring opportunities with four birdies. The set featured conversions from 23'4" at the par-4 10th hole and 34'8" at the par-5 15th. He dropped only one shot at the par-3 seventh, but he salvaged par from 12'8" at No. 10. Since missing the cut in his debut here in 2003, he's perfect in 10 trips with a total of three top 10s.

Matt Kuchar slipped on the plaid tartan jacket at last year's RBC Heritage and returns for another look at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Kuchar's form has simmered as of late, but now returns to the site of his 2014 victory. It was a dramatic finish as he splashed in from the greenside bunker on the 72nd hole of the event to knock off Luke Donald. Kuchar remains one of the safest play for gamers week in and week out and should be drafted as a top-tier option in all formats.

Matt Kuchar cruised to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

With two T8s and a solo second in his last three trips to the Golf Club of Houston, this is pretty much what everyone expected today. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to seven birdies. Four of his par breakers ranged 11-15 feet. Kuchar also squared two bogeys, including a three-putt from outside 55 feet at the par-3 16th hole. While he's survived 19 consecutive cuts, he's gone four in a row without a top 10. That's a bit surprising from a guy that's totaled no fewer than eight (2013) in each of the previous five seasons.
Apr 2 - 6:42 PM

Matt Kuchar locked up a top-20 finish when he signed for a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open and ends the week at 1-over 289.

Three of Kuchar's six birdies fell from 10 feet or longer, with a 29'4" birdie on the par-3 third hole the longest. He spread three bogeys across TPC San Antonio. He should be on everyone's short list for the Shell Houston Open next week. Not only was he there runner-up in 2014, but he has cracked the top 10 in his last three trips to the Golf Club of Houston.
Mar 29 - 3:22 PM

Matt Kuchar survived his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, signing for an even-par 36-36=72, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

To give you an idea of just how good this score is in relation to the rest of the field of 144, at last check, Kuchar led in strokes gained at 6.585. Sustained winds of 20-30 mph have wreaked havoc on scorecards, but he illustrated why he's one of the best in it. With his low ball flight, he found eight (of 14) fairways. He hit only eight greens in regulation, but even that ranked T30 at last check. He alternated two birdies with two bogeys throughout the round, reaching 2-under on two occasions, but there's no way that he can complain about giving back shots today. For the record, his longest conversion dropped for par from 11-and-a-half feet at the par-4 17th hole. If the wind remains strong today, Kuchar may eventually coast to the 36-hole lead as well. Conditions are expected to improve on Friday when he'll play in the afternoon wave.
Mar 26 - 2:30 PM

Matt Kuchar crafted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Valspar Championship and improves to 5-under 208 at Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course.

He shares the clubhouse lead with Patrick Reed. Kuchar's battle for the day included five birdies and two bogeys, with the other 12 holes settled with pars. A 25'7" bomb at the par-4 sixth hole was easily the highlight, with an 11-footer on the par-5 14th and a 10'6" effort on the par-4 18th also worth of applause. He split 11 (of 13) fairways and landed 11 GIR for his work, gaining over three strokes with the putter.
Mar 14 - 4:35 PM

Matt Kuchar begins his build towards The Masters with another start in the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The 36-year-old showed his usual high-class consistency in January with a T3 in the Sony Open and a T2 at the Humana Challenge but rested up after finishing T30 in the Waste Management Phoenix Open at the start of February. He makes his return at a familiar venue even though Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course got the better of him last year when he shot three closing 74s on the Gil Hanse redesign. Added to an opening 69, they were actually good enough for T13 although in previous visits to the Florida track he's posted a T3 and two other top 10s. Two of Kuchar's seven PGA TOUR titles have come in Florida -- the Honda Classic in 2002 and THE PLAYERS in 2012.
Mar 3 - 6:38 PM

Matt Kuchar constructed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his Humana Challenge finale to reach 21-under 267 and fall one shy of the eventual winner Bill Haas.

Kuchar bounced back nicely from a mediocre 1-under third round. The highlight of the round came in the form of a hole out from 13 yards for eagle on the par-5 sixth hole. Kuchar now has four top 25s on the season in four tries. This also goes in the books as his sixth straight Humana top 25 and he will continue to be an elite option anytime he tees it up.
Jan 25 - 7:04 PM

Overnight leader Matt Kuchar took a step back with a third round 1-under-par 34-37=71 at PGA West's Palmer Private.

It looked like it could have been a runaway victory for Kuchar after 14 holes but then he came into the clubhouse with bogeys on three of the last four. Water was the culprit today as he found the drink on the par-3 17th and then again on the par-5 18th hole. Kuchar now sits at 16-under 200, one shot back of the four-way tie at the top. Looking at the glass half-full, he now has the advantage of being the predator on Sunday rather the prey.
Jan 24 - 7:02 PM

Matt Kuchar chased his opening 65 at the Humana Challenge with an 8-under-par 31-33=64 in today's second round at PGA West's Nicklaus Private to set the 36-hole lead at 15-under 129.

He did what he needed to do on the easiest track on the PGA TOUR. Kuchar split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation today. He buried birdies on five of his first seven holes (on the back side of the course), and then sandwiched an eagle-3 at the fourth hole with birdies at 1 and 8. His only gaffe was a bogey at the par-4 sixth. At the time he signed his card, he led the field with 15 birdies with the eagle kicker. Kuchar will complete his rotation at Palmer Private at PGA West on Saturday.
Jan 23 - 4:49 PM

Matt Kuchar spun a 7-under-par 32-33=65 at La Quinta Country Club in his opening round of the Humana Challenge, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

He's a machine. Kuchar hit just 12 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 18th hole, where he concluded his walk. Prior to it, he buried eight birdies, including on each of the four par 5s. With the hardest track checked off, Kuchar will grapple with the easiest. He'll play his second round on Nicklaus Private at PGA West on Friday.
