Scott Stallings is a proven winner and is on the uptick heading into this week’s Barracuda Championship.
The 32-year-old is eyeing his fourth PGA TOUR win and first since 2014 after overcoming a rocky past few years.
In 2015, Stallings was suspended three months for violating the Tour’s drug policy. In 2016, he narrowly missed out on the Playoffs.
Now, he appears to have hit his stride. Stallings is riding five made cuts in a row and eight of his last nine.
Stallings made the penultimate pairing three weeks ago at the John Deere Classic en route to tying for fifth and the final group at the Barbasol Championship two weeks ago to tie for third.
Sunday woes are a trend all season. He averages over three strokes more per round from Saturday to Sunday: 68.54 and fifth on Tour to 71.69 and 167th.
Stallings showed he can go low with a 60 at the Barbasol, so if he’s able to fire more birdies and build up a lead, this could be that any given Sunday to win.
The Tennessee Tech University grad tied for 41st at the Barracuda Championship last year in his only start here since 2012.
