Kevin Stadler returns to a familiar venue, Cherry Hills Country Club, as he preps for this week's BMW Championship.
Stadler attended prep school at Kent Denver School, located just 3.1 miles from this week's venue. He's familiar with the area, to say the least. Although this week is a no-cut event, Stadler has shown his consistency this year with just four missed cuts in 25 events. Entering the week at 32nd in the FedExCup standings, he'll have to make a small move to get inside the top 30 needed to advance. Converging trends suggest Stadler could be a nice pick for salary-cap gamers this week. Sep 3 - 9:55 AM

Kevin Stadler spun a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to reach the 54-hole mark at 3-under 207.

Stadler was one of the early players off the first tee at Firestone Country Club on Saturday morning, as competitors went off split tees in threesomes in hopes of avoiding bad weather later in the day. After a bogey on his opening hole, Stadler never looked back. He bounced back with three consecutive birdies beginning with the par-5 second and highlighted by a 29'7" effort at the par-4 third. He add a pair of birdies on the back to complete his work. He landed just 12 GIR, but gained strokes with his long putter for the first time all week.

Kevin Stadler will have a crack at Royal Liverpool this week at the 143rd Open Championship.

Stadler has been playing European Tour events in preparation for this week. He was in complete control at the Alstom Open de France before blowing up on Sunday, clearing a path for Graeme McDowell to overtake him in the end. There may have been a hangover mentally, as he went on to miss the cut at last week's Scottish Open. Stadler is two for two at the Open Championship, but this will be his first appearance at the event since 2008.
Jul 16 - 10:37 AM

Kevin Stadler blew up for a 7-over-par 38-39=77 in his opening round of the U.S. Open.

Stadler is coming off a back injury that limited him to only 24 holes at TPC Southwind. Like most, he was caught up in the weather delays and would have needed to hoof it to make the cut, so it's always worth questioning when a guy calls it quits in that situation. If, indeed, he was feeling better today, his scorecard doesn't show it. He split 10 (of 14) fairways, but found only nine greens in regulation and failed to convert on every chance at birdie. Instead, Stadler squared three bogeys and two doubles. It's a disappointing return to the U.S. Open in which he hadn't competed in eight years.

Kevin Stadler withdrew during his second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, citing a back injury.

He set up a birdie look from 8'8" at the par-5 16th hole when he walked off. Stadler opened on the back side of TPC Southwind and penciled in three pars and three bogeys to sit 3-over-par through six. He was 4-over through 24 holes. The big fella is in the field at Pinehurst No. 2 next week, so if, indeed, he's nursing a sore back, it's a wise decision to rest, recover and give it a full go at the U.S. Open.

Kevin Stadler will have a crack at TPC Southwind in this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Stadler had a rough introduction to TPC Southwind, with a W/D and a missed cut in his first two appearances. First impressions aren't everything, as he is 4-for-5 with three finishes inside the top 30 since then. Stadler ranks 1st in par 3 birdie or better percentage and 52nd in driving distance. Both stats will be very useful this week as he tries to navigate the difficult par 70 course.
Jun 4 - 11:30 AM

Kevin Stadler has twice finished inside the top 25 at THE PLAYERS and returns for a sixth time.

Familiarity can often breed success at TPC Sawgrass, and that's something Stadler is counting on as he becomes more of a veteran around the Florida layout. He's currently 13th in the FedExCup standings, due in large part to his win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and he's also flashed some solid form fairly recently. His T8 at the Masters ensured him a ticket to Augusta National in 2015, perhaps prompting the hangover of a T38 at the RBC Heritage and a missed cut in New Orleans.
May 6 - 7:54 AM

Kevin Stadler settled for a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of the Masters to end the week at even-par 288.

Considering this was his first week at Augusta National Golf Club as a competitor, this was a great showing for Stadler. His chances of winning seemingly disappeared with a double bogey on the par-4 first hole, but he fought back with five birdies to just four bogeys the rest of the way. He'll be disappointed that he swallowed back-to-back bogeys to end his round. Either way, it appears that he is a lock for a top-12 finish and an invitation back to the 2015 Masters.
Apr 13 - 6:02 PM

Kevin Stadler signed for an even-par 34-38=72 in the third round of the Masters to remain at 1-under 215.

The Masters rookie made some noise early, playing his first 11 holes without a blemish and with a pair of birdies on the card. He would suffer three bogeys over his last seven holes with only one birdie to offset them. He is certainly still in the hunt for the title with a strong final round.
Apr 12 - 6:20 PM

Kevin Stadler back up his opening 70 at the Masters with a 1-over-par 34-39=73 to post 1-under 143 at the midway point.

Stadler stretched to 4-under for the tournament after birdies at 2 and 5 today. He then saved par at the par-4 seventh in a rather strange way. After finding the green in regulation, he putted off the green onto the collar. No biggie as he holed his next putt, albeit not of the official variety, dropping it barely in the front door. His second nine was a bit messy with three bogeys and a double, but he birdie both par 3s, including from long range at No. 12. Stadler sits six strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 11 - 4:55 PM

Kevin Stadler opened the 78th Masters with a 2-under-par 35-35=70, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Stadler is making his debut while his dad, Craig, is likely done after this year. The junior Stads hit 14 greens in regulation and buried four birdies, including on the second and third legs of Amen Corner. He had a long-range eagle look at the par-5 13th, but lagged to about 10 feet before dropping that in. Stadler squared bogeys at 6 and 11, but the overall experience is quite acceptable, especially since it was his first in meaningful competition.
Apr 10 - 12:44 PM

Kevin Stadler will try and tackle the Shell Houston Open for the 10th time in his career later this week.

Stadler is looking to end a minor hangover, as he hasn't cracked the top 20 in four starts following his Waste Management Phoenix Open breakthrough win. It hasn't been terrible. He's made each of those four cuts, including a T23 at Riviera Country Club. His best finish at the Golf Club of Houston was a T6 in 2010, so there's no reason he couldn't flash some form in time for his first Masters appearance just around the bend.
Apr 1 - 10:15 PM

Kevin Stadler has qualified for this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Stadler earned his berth for sitting ninth in the FedExCup standings at the conclusion of The Honda Classic. (The top 10 are exempt into the limited, no-cut field at Trump National Doral.) The recent first-time winner on the PGA TOUR (WM Phoenix Open) hasn't competed in the WGC-Cadillac since 2008. He's currently riding a consecutive cuts made streak of 12.
Mar 2 - 9:02 PM

The opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am was suspended for darkness at 5:33 p.m. PT.

After just 39 minutes of golf this morning, inclement weather prevented any action for two hours and 51 minutes. There was constant action since but the format often leads to six-hour rounds even in favorable conditions. Fresh off his breakthrough victory, Kevin Stadler was one of 40 that ran out of daylight today. He's 3-under through 16 holes on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club. Play is scheduled to resume at 7:45 a.m. on Friday. The second round is slated to commence at 9:00 a.m.
Feb 6 - 9:23 PM

Kevin Stadler claimed his first PGA TOUR win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, signing for a 3-under-par 31-37=68 in the final round to post 16-under 268, one clear of Bubba Watson and Graham DeLaet.

It has to be a giant monkey off Stadler's back, as this win was 239 starts in the making. With three birdies on his first three holes at TPC Scottsdale, he was off an running. He added a fourth birdie after sticking his approach on the par-4 ninth. It's said that the tournament doesn't begin until the back nine on Sunday, and that was certainly the case this week. A pushed drive and a penalty shot led to a double-bogey 6 on the par-4 11th, as he and Watson were in a race back down towards the field almost simultaneously. It would be all pars for Stadler the rest of the way, with the exception of a two-putt birdie from 86'7" on the par-4 17th. After failing to convert a 10'10" birdie on the par-4 18th, he watched Watson miss a par putt to force a playoff. With this win, Stadler is exempt into the Masters, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship. He will join his father, Craig, as the first father-son tandem to compete in the same field at Augusta National.
