Kevin Stadler has been removed from the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
Stadler was a question mark anyway what with a wrist injury that forced him to withdraw after only two holes of last week's WGC-HSBC Champions. He's played in every edition of the OHL Classic and hasn't missed a cut, so you know he's hurting enough to warrant the break from a virtual guaranteed payday in México. Nov 11 - 10:36 AM

Kevin Stadler is scheduled to compete in next week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

A wrist injury forced him to retire just two holes into this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, but he tied for 61st at the BMW Masters the previous week, so the trip to Asia wasn't a total waste. Assuming he's ready to go for the annual stop in México, he'll be making his eighth appearance in as many editions. Stadler has one top 10, another four top 20s and hasn't missed a cut in the tournament.
Nov 7 - 6:21 PM

Kevin Stadler withdrew from the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions after penciling in a par at the par-5 second hole, citing a wrist injury.

He bogeyed the par-4 first, so he was 1-over through two. This is his fourth WD during a tournament in 261 PGA TOUR starts and first since the 2014 FedEx St. Jude Classic (due to a back injury). He had cashed in eight consecutive events worldwide, so for that modest streak to end in a no-cut WGC is rare.
Nov 5 - 10:18 PM

Kevin Stadler carded a 4-under-par 36-31=67 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, settling two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

He's making his first start of the season this week. If there was any rust, it was revealed in the form of only 11 greens in regulation, but he limited the damage to one bogey at the par-3 fifth hole. Stadler added a zero-putt seven-yarder form the fringe for par at No. 7, but he remained birdie-free 1-over through 12. After a pedestrian birdie at the par-5 13th, he took aim at the drivable, par-4 15th and cozied his tee ball just nine yards from the cup. He then holed his second from off the green for the eagle. He closed with birdies at 17 and 18.

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.
Jun 12 - 7:59 PM

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.
