Chris Stroud withdrew from The Honda Classic following his opening round.
Stroud turned in a 10-over-par 41-39=80 before calling it quits. He erased one birdie (from 23-and-a-half feet at the par-4 first hole, his 10th of the round) with five bogeys and three doubles. It's his tenth withdrawal in 226 career PGA TOUR starts. It also ends six consecutive paydays at PGA National. Today's aggregate is his highest since a second-round 81 at the 2012 PGA Championship. If an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you. Feb 26 - 3:54 PM

Chris Stroud arrives at this week's Honda Classic on the heels of two straight top 50s looking to add another at a favorable PGA National venue.

Stroud has a love affair with PGA National's Bermudagrass greens, evidenced by his 18.768 strokes gained:putting over his last five trips here. With those kind of putting stats, it's no surprise that he's collected five paydays during that stretch including three top 15s. Gamers should give high consideration to Stroud when setting their rosters this week.

Chris Stroud enters the Waste Management Phoenix Open ranked 130th in the FedExCup standings.

Hopes were high that 2014-15 would be a big year for Stroud after finishing 47th in the 2013-14 FedExCup standings. That hasn't been the case thus far, with a T23 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba representing the current highlight. He has made his last three cuts at TPC Scottsdale, with three of those resulting in top-20 finishes, so this sets up to be the classic case of poor current form versus poor course history. He missed the cut in the Sony Open in Hawaii and the Humana Classic.

Chris Stroud finished T23 in his final start of the fall and currently ranks 98th on the FedExCup totem pole.

Stroud is known for devouring short courses. He collected a pair of podium finishes during last season's Fall Series, so he must feel disappointing with this start. The Lamar University grad finished 47th in the FEC standings last season, his second straight inside the top 50. At 32 years of age, Stroud is in his prime years and will make a push at that coveted first PGA TOUR victory.

Chris Stroud will have a look at old yardage books as he returns to a favorable El Camaleón Golf Club for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Stroud enters the week as a true course horse, posting top 15s in four of his seven trips to Mayakoba, including three straight top 5s. His lack of distance off the tee limits his upside on many of the PGA TOUR courses, but that's not the case this week as El Camaleón plays under 7,000 total yards. Gamers in all formats should give Stroud serious consideration this week.

Chris Stroud tied for third in the 2013 CIMB Classic and is back on the prowl at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club this week.

Stroud missed the cut with back-to-back 75s at the Open to open the 2014-15 season and has skipped the two events since. That poor finish is likely an aberration. He was consistent in 2013-14, nabbing 11 top 25s. This is the classic case of course history versus current form.

Chris Stroud crafted a bogey-free, 2-under-par 35-34=69 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 4-under 138, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Stroud hit 13 greens in regulation in each of his first two rounds, but he squared one bogey in the lid-lifter. Today's biggest challenge to avoid a blemish occurred at the par-4 13th hole. He sailed his approach right of the green, but would eventual convert his par attempt from 18'8". He also holed two birdies, the longer measuring 30'11" at the par-3 16th. Stroud arrived at TPC Boston sitting quietly at 41st in the FedExCup standings, so we'll see him again next week, too.

Chris Stroud hopes the third time is the charm at the 96th PGA Championship.

Stroud is 0-for-2 in his previous two PGA appearances, and just 1-for-7 in his career at major championships. His 2014 season has already been a career best though, setting a personal high in season earnings and grabbing 10 top-25 finishes in 21 events. With great season form, but lack of any major championship pedigree, Stroud falls somewhere in the middle this week as a high upside option with a considerable amount of risk.

Chris Stroud finished his week at The Greenbrier Classic with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 to crack the top 10 at 9-under 271.

Stroud circled three birdies without a blemish on the first 12 holes, jumping into contention for his first PGA TOUR win, but handed back bogeys at the 13th and 15th holes. Two of his birdies were notable, with a 24'10" effort at the par-4 ninth trumping a 16-footer at the par-4 11th. He landed 14 GIR and gained over a stroke with his putter on the afternoon. His breakthrough win will have to wait for another day.

Chris Stroud settled for an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to remain at 8-under 202 with 18 holes remaining.

Stroud traded a bogey on the eighth hole for a 10'1" birdie on the par-4 ninth going out at The Old White TPC. He secured birdies on each of the par 5s on the back, but suffered a costly double bogey at the par-4 16th after finding the water off the tee. The good news is, he enters the final round inside the top five and within shouting distance of his first PGA TOUR win.

Chris Stroud enjoyed his opening, 4-under-par 33-33=66 at The Greenbrier Classic so much, that he carded the identical score in today's second round.

The Old White TPC reads 34-36=70 on the scorecard since both of the par 5s are on the inward nine. Stroud opened on that side today and circled birdies on four of his first five holes. That spurt included conversions from 32'5" and 13'11" at Nos. 13 and 14, respectively. He picked off two more coming in, this time from 18'5" at 2 and from four yards just off the green at 7. Unlike his lid-lifter, he didn't go bogey-free today, settling for a pair, but at 8-under 132, he's just one stroke adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Chris Stroud posted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

Stroud's only heavy lifting occurred at the par-4 10th where he needed to pour in a par attempt from 16'1". It fell, of course. His only miscue, albeit relative, was a two-putt from just inside 10 feet at the par-4 first. Otherwise, it was an extremely boring day that yielded four birdies, including on both par 5s. He's two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Chris Stroud lost the Travelers Championship in a playoff to Ken Duke last year and is back for another swing at a breakthrough victory this week.

Stroud chipped in on the 72nd hole to force the playoff, but ran out of gas as they played the 18th hole in the playoff. Overall, he's made six of his seven cuts at TPC River Highlands, so his result last year was not a fluke. If he falls flat this week, it will likely be due to heightened expectations and not course fit. A T14 at Colonial two starts ago suggest his form is strong enough to contend.

Chris Stroud could only muster a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and ends the week at 5-over 275.

Stroud flirted with the lead on the front nine when his 11'6 birdie at the par-4 seventh put him at 8-under for the tournament, but would square three bogeys without a birdie from that point forward. The 54-hole co-leader continues to search for his first PGA TOUR victory in a streak that now stretches to 208 starts.

Chris Stroud signed for a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, joining Hideki Matsuyama, David Toms and Chad Campbell in a share of the 54-hole lead at 7-under 203.

Stroud's round was relatively calm, with three birdies outpacing two bogeys. Before his 15'5" birdie at the par-4 18th, his highlight was a 23'7" birdie at the par-4 sixth. This leaderboard is bunched by every standard, with 36 players within four strokes of the lead. Stroud and Matsuyama are each searching for their breakthrough wins on Sunday, while Toms and Campbell try to return to the winner's circle. Anything can happen.
