Kevin Kisner

Kisner played golf at the University of Georgia and was a member of its 2005 NCAA Division I Championship team, along with Chris Kirk, Richard Scott, and Brendon Todd. He became the first player in the university's history to be named All-American four times. After graduating in 2006, he turned professional and played on the mini-tours (NGA Hooters Tour and Tarheel Tour) from 2007 to 2009, winning three times. In 2009, through sponsor exemptions, top-25 finishes, and open qualifying, he played in six Korn Ferry Tour events, with his best finish a T-15th at The Athens Regional. At the end of the year, he went to PGA Tour Q-School and missed earning his card by one stroke when he finished T-26th. That result qualified him instead for the Korn Ferry Tour.
2010 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 26; Cuts Made - 16; Top-10 Finishes - 6; Scoring Average - 70.00 (rank 27th); Money - $279,292 (rank 11th); Best Finish - 1st, Mylan Classic.
2011 Notes: He played 24 events but failed to earn enough money on the PGA Tour to retain his card (181st on the money list). He finished T-11th at Q-School to earn his card for 2012. His best finish and only top-25 for the year was a T-12th at the Children's Miracle Network Classic.
2012 Notes: Again, he failed to retain his card, finishing 167th on the money list, and missed earning a card in Q-School by a stroke. He had one top-10 finish, a T-10th at the RBC Canadian Open.
2013 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 22; In Money - 11; Top-10 Finishes - 3; Scoring Average - 70.28 (rank 33rd); Money - $238,491 (rank 14th); Best Finish - Win, Chile Classic. He finished the regular season 13th in earnings to secure his 2014 PGA Tour card.
2014 Notes: In May, he played the Wells Fargo Championship just a few hours north of his hometown, Aiken, S.C. He carded rounds of 72-66-68-73 to finish a career-best T-6th, five strokes behind champion J.B. Holmes. It was his second top-10 in 64 PGA Tour starts, the other being a T-10th at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. He added two more top-10s with a T-9th at the RBC Canadian Open and T-8th at the Wyndham Championship. He reached the FedExCup playoffs for the first time but was eliminated when he missed the cut at The Barclays, ending the year 104th in the FedExCup standings and 100th on the money list.
2015 Notes: Earned a T-4th at the McGladrey Classic. He struggled in his next 11 events before tying Jim Furyk after 72 holes at the RBC Heritage but lost to the veteran in a playoff. Three weeks later, Kisner again found himself tied for the lead at The Players Championship with Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia before losing to Fowler on the fourth playoff hole. Kisner's solid play continued with a T-5th finish at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and T-8th at The Memorial. At the Greenbrier Classic, he posted a final-round 64 to reach his third playoff since April. Danny Lee won the playoff at the second hole. Kisner was the first to lose three playoffs in a season since Horton Smith in 1937. The finish in West Virginia still marked his sixth top-10 of the season and fifth in his previous eight starts. With the finish at White Sulphur Springs, he moved to 36th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Fifteen months before, he was 399th in the World Ranking. He played in all four FedExCup playoff events, with a best finish of T-12th at the Deutsche Bank Championship. He finished 21st in the final FedExCup rankings and 20th on the money list.
2016 Notes: Despite injuring his back the Sunday before the WGC-HSBC Championship and not playing any practice rounds, Kisner finished 2nd, two strokes behind winner Russell Knox. It was his fourth runner-up finish since April 2015 (29 weeks). In his next start at the RSM Classic, he shot rounds of 65-67-64-64 for a six-stroke win and his first PGA Tour victory. The win made him the 11th former Georgia Bulldog to win on the PGA Tour, joining Chip Beck, Harris English, Brian Harman, Russell Henley, Ryuji Imada, Chris Kirk, Billy Kratzert, Tim Simpson, Brendon Todd, and Bubba Watson. During the PGA Tour's Hawaiian swing, he finished 9th at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and T-5th at the Sony Open in Hawaii. He also had T-10th results at the Dean & DeLuca and the Wyndham Championship. In 27 starts for the year, Kisner reached the top 10 six times and made 22 cuts, finishing 23rd in the FedExCup playoffs and 20th on the money list.
2017 Notes: In his fourth start of the season at the Sony Open in Hawaii, Kisner made the cut right at three under. In the third round, he shot 60, missing a 10-foot eagle putt on his last hole. With a final-round 65, he finished T-4th. He also had a T-10th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He co-led with Charley Hoffman after three rounds at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Shot a final-round 73 to finish T-2nd, one stroke behind winner Marc Leishman. While paired with fellow Aiken, S.C., resident Scott Brown in the new two-man team Foursomes/Four-Ball format at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Kisner fell to 0-4 in PGA Tour playoffs when they lost to Jonas Blixt/Cameron Smith on the fourth hole of sudden death. Both teams finished at 27-under 261. The duo shot 70-64-67-60 and chipped in for an eagle from 95 feet as darkness fell at the final hole of regulation to force the playoff. Storms caused a six-hour suspension of play on Sunday, disrupting a final-round 12-under 60, which was tied for the week's lowest round. That round began with eight consecutive birdies in the Four-Ball format to erase the four-stroke deficit they started with on Sunday. Both teams made par at the first three playoff holes (18,18,9) before Smith pitched from 60 yards to within three feet of the hole at 18 and converted the birdie putt for victory.
The following month, Kisner shot a final-round 70 to win the Dean & DeLuca by one shot, his second PGA Tour win. The next week, he finished T-6th at The Memorial and was T-7th at the PGA Championship. He played in all four FedExCup playoff events for the third consecutive year and finished 12th in the FedExCup standings.
