Chad Campbell rode three birdies over his final five holes to a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the finale of The RSM Classic to post 10-under 272, up 11 places on the live leaderboard to T9.
Campbell has played five previous RSM Classics with a T7/2012 his only top-30 finish among four paydays. He's opened the fall portion of the wraparound schedule with book-end missed cuts sandwiching a T8 (Shriners) and T29 at the CIMB in Malaysia. Campbell began Sunday's play in a 14-way logjam on 7-under (T20) after opening in bogey-free 66, 71-68. His finale started with six straight pars before exchanging birdie at the par-5 seventh (from 5'5") with a three-putt bogey-5 on the eighth from 51'5" to turn even. Four straight two-putt pars for the 41-year-old followed the break, before connecting back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15, the former from 20'1". His bid for three straight from 5'11" went awry before dropping a 30-footer at the last for the walk-off birdie-3. Nov 22 - 3:34 PM

UNLV's Chad Campbell signed for a 3-under-par 36-32=68 after today's final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to conclude his 13th appearance at 14-under 270, two swings back of champion Smylie Kaufman.

Last season, it took Campbell 17 starts to bag his first top 10 (T8, Zurich Classic of New Orleans). This season, it took him just two starts and netted just his fourth top-10 finish in his last 75 events. The 41-year-old resuscitated his career with a 96th-place finish in the FedExCup standings last season, which saw him match the aforementioned T8 with the same result at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in mid-June. Entering the week off three straight missed cuts dating back to the Playoffs, Campbell began his final frame at 11-under (T3) and just two back. He got off to an uneven start with bogeys at six and eight offsetting birdie at the par-4 second from 14'8" to turn 1-over. He played his inward half in bogey-free 4-under, circling birdies at Nos. 10, 13, 16 and 17. Three of those were conversions from outside 16 feet with a long of 18'11" coming at the 10th. This is Campbell's third top 10 at the Shriners but first since P2 in 2009.

Overnight quad-leader Chad Campbell bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to post 11-under 202, two strokes in arrears of 54-hole leader Brett Stegmaier.

UNLV's Campbell has a P2 (2009) and T3 (2008) on his resume at TPC Summerlin but has only cracked the top 25 once in his last five visits, including a missed cut last season. His last (of four) PGA TOUR titles came in 2007 (Viking Classic) so inclusive of his MC at last week's, his winless drought has reached 212 events. Opening in 65-67, the 41-year-old began the day at 10-under in a four-way tie for the lead. After recording just three bogeys over his first 36 holes, Campbell squared four today, each the result of missed greens in regulation, going 3-for-7 in scrambles. One of his successful scrambles was a pitch-in birdie from right of the green on the par-3 eighth, which played as the most difficult hole in R3 at a stroke average of 3.350. Campbell carded back-to-back bogeys to start his inward half, but played his last seven holes in bogey-free 2-under, dropping an 11-footer for birdie at the par-5 13th and a birdie-2 at 17 got him back into the red on his round.

Chad Campbell answered his opening 65 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round to post 10-under 132 at the midpoint, good for a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Tyler Aldridge.

Campbell walked off with bogey at the par-4 18th where he fanned on his look at par from just inside six feet, but he was flawless prior to it. He hit 15 greens in regulation and scattered five birdies, the longest moving 13 feet at the par-4 first hole to get things restarted after an eight-birdie lid-lifter. The UNLV product is still seeking redemption at TPC Summerlin where he lost in a playoff in 2009. He tied for third the previous year. But Campbell is now 41 years of age and has already burned a career earnings exemption. This is to say that he's done nicely in turning back the clock in a familiar spot.

Chad Campbell cruised to a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, good for a share of the early clubhouse lead.

The 41-year-old went out in the second threesome off the 10th tee at TPC Summerlin today and went 8-for-14 in scoring chances, all par breakers for birdie. Five of them rolled longer than 14 feet, including conversions from 36'7", 21 feet and 27'5" at the 13th, second and fourth holes, respectively. At last check, Campbell ranked third in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 3.287.

Chad Campbell makes his 11th consecutive appearance in this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Campbell can go low at TPC Summerlin as evidenced by his 9-under 62 in round two of the 2009 edition, eventually losing in a three-man playoff. However, in his last five appearances, he cracked the top 25 but once (T23/2011), including a missed cut last year on rounds of 74-69. The UNLV product rejuvenated his career last season returning to the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since 2012, but still posted just two top 10s in 30 starts, to finish 96th in FEC points. The 41-year-old missed the cut last week at the by two strokes and hasn't won on TOUR since the 2007 Viking Classic.
Oct 21 - 2:48 PM

Chad Campbell returns to the Deutsche Bank Championship for the first time since a T21-finish in 2011 and enters the tournament ranked 86th in the FedExCup standings.

Campbell made the postseason for six consecutive years between 2007 and 2012 and made it to the TOUR Championship once, in 2008. In 2013, he missed the Playoffs for the first time and failed to finish inside the top 125 on the money list for the first time since 2001. In 2013-14, Campbell missed the postseason again, and for the second straight year, attempted to regain exempt status thru the Tour Finals, but failed. He used his top-50 PGA TOUR career money-list exemption for the 2014-15 season and he's capitalized with seven top-25 finishes in 18 made cuts (29 starts). Although his last of four PGA TOUR victories came almost eight years ago, the 41-year-old held the outright lead after 36 holes at the RBC Canadian Open, eventually finishing T11, and was T3 after 36 holes at the Wyndham, settling for T31. He ended a streak of eight consecutive made cuts with a trunk slam last week at The Barclays. Campbell is 3-for-5 at the DBC with one top 10 (T7/2008).

Chad Campbell submitted another 5-under-par 65 in today's second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach the halfway point in 10-under 130.

He went 0-for-1 in scrambling with one bogey for his only dropped shot of the week, but Campbell covered with six birdies, including a pair from just outside 15 feet at Nos. 2 and 6. He's birdied both par 5s in both rounds and sits just one shot off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. If you're looking for a dark horse on the weekend, he's the guy. The 40-year-old has been trending for something special for months. With 31 greens hit at this points, his confidence is soaring at Sedgefield.

Chad Campbell tossed up a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship and sits three shots back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

He's been energized this season, evident in his placement at 74th in FedExCup points. Campbell rolled into Greensboro, North Carolina, having cashed in seven straight as well, with T11s in his last two starts. At Sedgefield today, he piped only half of the 14 fairways but went 4-for-4 in scrambling with five birdies, three of which ranging 10-15 feet. At last check, he ranked fourth in the field in strokes gained: putting at 2.602. While every touring professional is prone to filling the cup without notice, veteran gamers are surprised every time Campbell putts well. He's notorious for hitting a high percentage of greens in regulation but leaving strokes behind. Not today!

Playing his sixth tournament in as many weeks, Chad Campbell crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to conclude at 10-under 274.

Inclusive of this week, Campbell has now cashed in seven straight events and is enjoying his best season since 2011 when he finished 59th in the FedExCup standings. He began his final round at 6-under (T33) and at eight shots off the pace, too far back to contend. However, he was just four swings from the overnight top 10. The 41-year-old circled five birdies at Nos. 3, 5, 8, 10 and 15 to hide a lone bogey at the par-4 12th. His set included three conversions from outside 12 feet with a long of 21'10" coming at the par-5 fifth. In total, he piped 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. At T15 on the live leaderboard, Campbell's on pace for his seventh top-25 finish of the season on 27 starts. He's currently projected to bump to 73rd in the FEC standings.

Chad Campbell opened the Quicken Loans National with a 3-under-par 35-33=68.

With a T11 in Canada on Sunday, Campbell rose to 79th in the FedExCup standings, so he's merely looking to pile on, if not return to the winner's circle for the first time since 2007. Going out in the second threesome off the 10th tee at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club this morning, he promptly birdied the par-4 opener. Campbell added three birdies coming in to help offset a lone bogey at the par-4 15th hole. All 18 of his conversions were from inside 10 feet. This is Campbell's 17th sub-par score in his last 25 rounds.

Overnight leader Chad Campbell bumped and bruised his was to a 3-over-par 36-39=75 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open for a 54-hole total of 11-under 205, four shots behind the leader David Hearn.

Campbell began the day at 14-under and held a two-shot margin over playing partner Brian Harman. By the end of the day however, he trailed by Hearn four. The 41-year-old opened with birdie misses from 10'5" at the first and 13'6" at the par-5 second. He then squared bogey at the third as Harman birdies, the resulting two-shot swing erased his lead early on. In this instance, there was no coming back for Campbell, registering seven consecutive pars before carding the death knell triple bogey-7 at the par-4 11th. He steadied enough to play his last seven holes in 1-under, recording his lone par breaker at the par-5 16th (from 18 inches). He did not have another scoring opportunity all day from inside of 10 feet. His round totals show seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation and a -3.714 in strokes gained: total. Yet, he's still inside the top 10. His season-best results are a pair of T8s (Zurich Classic of New Orleans; FedEx St. Jude Classic).

Chad Campbell got out early at Glen Abbey Golf Club on Friday and hung up a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open. UPDATE: At 14-under 130, he goes in the books as the outright leader after 36 holes. Campbell is in ownership of a two-stroke margin over Brian Harman.

Going out in the second threesome off the 10th tee, Campbell went 6-for-6 in scrambling and converted on eight of his looks to break par, including a gem from 30'7" at the par-3 seventh hole. It was his last of nine birdies in the round. He also connected from nine yards off the green for birdie at the par-4 14th. At last check, his strokes gained: tee-to-green for the round measured 5.626. Campbell's consolation is that today's aggregate is his lowest since a third-round 62 at the 2014 John Deere Classic.
Jul 24 - 11:58 AM

Chad Campbell carded a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's opening round of the RBC Canadian Open.

Sparked by a T8 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Campbell has cashed in five straight starts, but hasn't really put four rounds together. Nevertheless, he's rewarded by sitting 97th in the FedExCup standings with just six events remaining before the Playoffs. He exchanged seven birdies with two bogeys at Glen Abbey Golf Club today. Campbell birdied all four par 5s, but his longest conversion rolled in for birdie from 16 feet at the par-3 15th. He also poured in a par save from 13'3" at the par-4 fifth. The 41-year-old signed his card sitting three strokes off the overnight lead. He's one of 16 golfers inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.

Chad Campbell toured The Old White TPC in 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

With a T8 (St. Jude) and T25 (Travelers) in his last two starts, Campbell has connected top 25s for the first time in nearly two years. He's on pace for his third in a row after today's success. He missed only one of the 14 fairways and three greens in regulation. The precision yielded six birdies, including respective conversions from 14'1" and 26'6" at Nos. 2 and 18. Campbell squared a pair of bogey-5s on his outward nine, but he's just four strokes off the clubhouse lead.
