Kevin Kisner finished in a tie for 44th at the John Deere Classic after an even-par 71 on Sunday.
Kisner really struggled on the greens at TPC Deere Run as he was 70th in SG: Putting and 71st in putts per GIR. On the other hand he struck the ball great finishing the week sixth in SG: Tee-to-green and T6 in greens in regulation. Kisner has been off his last three events with finishes of T58-MC-T44. He is still 10th in the FedExCup standings thanks to a win and two other second place finishes. Kisner will be looking to take home his first career major at Royal Birkdale this week.

Kevin Kisner closed with a four-over 76 to finish in a tie for 58th place at the U.S. Open.
Kisner drove the ball well as he hit over 85 percent of the fairways and therefore stayed out of the long fescure, but he was still outside the top-40 in SG: Approach-to-green and greens in regulation. Kisner's biggest problems this week, however, came on the greens as he was 64th in SG: Putting and 59th in putts per GIR.

Kevin Kisner finished in a tie for sixth place after shooting a one-under 71 on Sunday at the Memorial Tournament.
Kisner started a bit flat with nine straight pars, but made two birdies and an eagle on the back-nine with three bogeys. Kisner was the only player this week to shoot under-par in all four rounds. On a "second shot golf course" like Muirfield Village, your irons have to be sharp to contend. Kisner was just that as he was fifth in SG: Approach-to-green and T13 in greens in regulation. He was also a solid 16th in strokes gained putting. This was a good way to follow up his win at last week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational. Kisner is now sixth in the FedExCup standings thanks to six top-10's, 10 top-25's, and just two missed cuts in 17 starts.

Kisner is now up to No. 7 in the FedExCup standings, and will look to maintain recent momentum at the upcoming Memorial Tournament, where he placed top-10 in 2015.
