Chris Stroud saunters into Edison, New Jersey, for this week's Barclays.
Stroud looked like a strong candidate to make a late-season rally after finishing T10 at the Travelers Championship and backing it up with a T5 at the John Deere Classic two starts later. Unfortunately, he now arrives on the heels of three straights missed cuts, ranked 109th in the FedExCup standings. His lack of distance combined with great ability to scramble around the greens makes him a perfect sleeper selection for the first leg of the Playoffs. Aug 26 - 9:32 AM

Chris Stroud returns to action for his ninth appearance at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Like most in the field this week, Stroud's been off the last two weeks after not qualifying for the WGC-BI or the PGA Championship. Prior to the break, he had just closed out a six-tournament stretch (in six weeks), opening the run with his first top 10 in his 20th start of the season, a T10 at the Travelers Championship. Had added a T5 two weeks later at the John Deere Classic, but has missed two of his last three cuts to complete the stint. Stroud is set to make the FEC Playoffs for the sixth time (fifth consecutive) in their nine-year history and has made it to the third round three times. At 105th in the FedExCup standings entering the week, he'll need to make some noise if he wants to add to his playoff resume. The 33-year-old is 3-for-8 at the Wyndham with a T37 in 2013 his best showing.

The final round of the Barbasol Championship was suspended at 1:09 p.m. CT due to inclement weather.

Tournament officials have announced that play is scheduled to resume at 2:30 p.m.. Chris Stroud will be returning to the par-4 18th hole to line up a birdie putt from 17'1". He's bogey-free, 5-under-par on the round and 8-under for the tournament.
Jul 19 - 2:53 PM

Chris Stroud twirled an 8-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to post 18-under 266, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

Stroud, 108th in the FedExCup standings, began his final frame at 10-under (T13) and seven shots back. On his round, he piped 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation, recording a sparkling 1.308 putts per GIR to post the low round of the day thus far. Stroud outpaced one bogey (at the par-4 fifth) with a stellar, nine-birdie loop, penciling circles at Nos. 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14 and 17. The 33-year-old banked 25 birdies on the week, currently T1 in the field in that category. Stroud's split today included an eye-catching eight conversions from 10 feet and in. His only conversion from length came from 19'2" at the par-4 seventh. He currently sits T3 on the leaderboard, which would easily push aside his T-15 finish at the 2009 JDC. His only other top 10 on the season (22 prior starts) was a T10 at the Travelers Championship.
Jul 12 - 5:05 PM

Chris Stroud backed up to an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Travelers Championship and his 72-hole aggregate of 10-under 270 was good for a five-way tie for 10th place.

Stroud, playoff loser in the 2013 Travelers to Ken Duke, suffered more heartache in Cromwell, Connecticut, today, bogeying his last two holes. Prior to the consecutive dropped shots, he was firmly in position to snag one of the four qualifying places (available at the Travelers) to next month's Open Championship. Stroud began the final frame in solo seventh (10-under) and four shots adrift. He was 2-under on the day thru 16 holes, covering one bogey at the par-4 10th with birdies on Nos. 6, 13 and 15. His three-birdie set was highlighted by a hole-out from over the green (29 yards from the hole) at the sixth. His unfortunate ending was the result of two errant tee shots, both missing wide right, with his tee ball on 17 finding the water. On the plus side, the 33-year-old registered his first top 10 on the season in 21 starts.
Jun 28 - 9:27 PM

Chris Stroud settled for a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of the Travelers Championship to clock in at 10-under 200, four swings adrift of the 54-hole leader Brian Harman.

Stroud began the festivities in a three-way tie for fifth at 8-under and three shots off the pace. He covered three bogeys with five birdies, down two spots on the day, but still within striking distance of the top. The 33-year-old was cruising at 4-under thru 12 on Saturday, at one point in solo second at 12-under for the tournament. He fell off the pace in rapid fashion, squaring three consecutive bogeys on Nos. 13-15. A runner-up in the 2013 Travelers (playoff loss), Stroud righted the ship with birdie on the par-3 16th from 11'11", augmenting his 17'1" roll on the par-3 12th, his longest conversion on the day. The Texan entered the week 130th in the FedExCup standings with zero top 10s in 20 starts and a season-best T22 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Stroud will begin the final round in solo seventh, looking to improve on his aforementioned runner-up, which is a career-best in 237 PGA TOUR starts.
Jun 27 - 5:42 PM

Chris Stroud hung up a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his second round of the Travelers Championship, posting 8-under 132 at the break, just three swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He went just 2-for-5 in scrambling with three bogeys but strung three birdies together on each nine to remain in the hunt. His longest taped 19 feet at the par-4 fourth hole, which was his last birdie of the round. At last check, Stroud ranked fifth in the field in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate clip of 4.160. He sat T2 in birdies with 12.
Jun 26 - 5:27 PM

Chris Stroud twirled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in today's opening round of the Travelers Championship to share the early clubhouse lead.

Stroud has struggled this season, but TPC River Highlands has been very good to him. He's cashed in his last seven trips, including a playoff loss in 2013. He added to this sparkling record today with six birdies against one bogey. His longest par breakers ran 25'5" and 21'3" at Nos. 2 and 8, respectively. It's his 12th consecutive red number on the course.
Jun 25 - 12:13 PM

Chris Stroud lands this week in Cromwell, Connecticut, for his ninth appearance in the Travelers Championship.

Stroud began the year No. 108 in the Official World Golf Ranking but has slid to No. 175 on the heels of a 10-for-20 season and zero top 10s. Of his 10 paydays, three have gone for top 25s, placing him 130th in the FedExCup standings. Perhaps it's redemption week for the 33-year-old at TPC River Highlands, site of his playoff loss (to Ken Duke) in the 2013 edition of the Travelers. Of note, this P2 remains a career-best for him in 237 TOUR starts. In total, Stroud is 7-for-8 in Cromwell, tossing in additional top 25s in 2014/T18 and 2011/T17.
Jun 24 - 2:08 PM

Chris Stroud has been removed from the published field of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Given that he's 0-for-4 at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas, you can't blame him. He also continues to scuffle this season, which is still devoid of a top-15 finish. Yet, he's hanging on at 124th in the FedExCup standings.
May 25 - 12:17 PM

Chris Stroud manufactured a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his second round of THE PLAYERS and posted 5-under 139 at the halfway point, one stroke off the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Stroud found the fairway 10 of 14 times off the tee, but he created only 10 scoring opportunities. He not only limited the damage to two bogeys, but he also found five birdies, including a pair from off the greens at Nos. 7 (19 yards) and 10 (five yards). His longest conversion that began its roll on the putting surface ran 11 feet for birdie on the par-3 17th. The 33-year-old boost his record to 5-for-6 at TPC Sawgrass. It includes top 15s in his first two appearances, so don't be surprised if he sticks around this weekend.
May 8 - 12:28 PM

Chris Stroud fashioned a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 11-under 133 at the break, one stroke off the 36-hole lead.

Stroud is hitting his stride once again. He went 3-for-3 in scrambling but squared a three-putt bogey from 28'4" at the par-4 15th hole. However, he covered it well with seven birdies, including conventional conversions from 10'4" and 27'2" at the par-4 16 and sixth holes, respectively. But Stroud's most impressive hole-out occurred at the par-4 fourth where he jarred a 20-yarder from off the green right of the surface. When he signed his card, it officially matched his lowest aggregate in 44 rounds this season. And at last check, he ranked second in the field with a aggregate strokes gained: tee-to-green clip of 6.396.
Apr 25 - 10:41 AM

Chris Stroud cruised to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Stroud hit 17 greens in regulation, but squared a three-putt bogey from 35'1" at the par-4 fourth hole. Elsewhere, he converted six birdies, including rolls from 22'2" and 14'11" at Nos. 14 and 18, respectively. This is his his lowest first round since he shot 66 to open a T4 at The Greenbrier Classic last summer.
Apr 23 - 3:09 PM

Chris Stroud has fashioned a pair of 4-under-par 68s to begin the Shell Houston Open.

He's a local resident in his 10th appearance in the tournament. Stroud's best finish in eight tries at the Golf Club of Houston occurred last year when he shared 12th place. We can't rule out that that success has mattered this week because he arrived in search of something positive. Stroud sits 147th in the FedExCup standings with only five paydays on the season. Thus far this week, he's missed only five (of 28) fairways and seven greens in regulation, and has traded five birdies with one bogey in each round. Today's set of par breakers featured three from outside 13 feet, the longest stretching 26'4" at the par-3 16th hole. He's only one shot off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
Apr 3 - 2:45 PM

Texas-born and Lamar University grad Chris Stroud makes ninth career start on Golf Club of Houston's Tournament Course.

Stroud is 4-for-8 at GC of Houston with only one top-30 finish, a T12 in last year's edition. Has MCs in five of nine starts in his 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign -- including his last two -- with season-best T27 at Puerto Rico his lone top 30. Additional concern is he ranks outside the top 150 on TOUR in the majority of key performance stats.
