Kevin Kisner has always played well at the Wyndham Championship but never had a trophy to show for it. Until 2021.

He survived the first six-man playoff on the PGA Tour in decades to win in two extra holes. Kevin Na, Adam Scott, Branden Grace, Si Woo Kim, and Roger Sloan were the other participants.

Kisner started the day in third place and needed birdies on 16 and 17 to sneak into the playoff.

A player who thrives on precision and shot-making loves Greensboro.

“My record’s pretty good here at Sedgefield and I enjoy where everybody — we’ve got to put the ball in the same place and then I love the greens surfaces, obviously what I grew up on,” the Aiken, South Carolina native was transcribed by Tee Scripts. “There’s less of those courses on Tour than ever, so when we get to weeks like this, I really have to be on form to play well and these are my chances to hold the trophies.”

Kisner ranked eighth in the field in strokes gained putting for the week (4.388) and was also T-8th in greens in regulation (80.56%). He did not hit a lot of fairways compared to the field, but his misses were manageable and he did not make worse than bogey.

The former Georgia Bulldog missed the cut last week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. That’s not a huge concern as Detroit Golf Club is a bomber’s paradise.

Prior, Kisner posted T-6th at the Travelers Championship and T-21st at The Open Championship.

The 38-year-old ranks 24th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained around the green (.331) and 18th in SG putting (.532). Kisner is also 21st in driving accuracy (67.33%).

Kisner finds himself on the bubble once again for repping the red, white, and blue, this time for the Presidents Cup. A win this week wouldn’t lock him up as he’s likely too far back in points to automatically qualify, but it sure would get captain Love III’s attention.
