Twice-spurned Kisner looks to break through at Wells Fargo

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Kevin Kisner expects to be in contention to win his first PGA Tour event this week at the Wells Fargo Championship.

''If I keep playing the way I'm playing,'' Kisner says, ''I'm going to win one sooner or later.''

Kisner has lost in a sudden death playoff in two of the last three tournaments, including last week at The Players Championship when Ricky Fowler capped an improbable comeback with a winning birdie putt on No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass.

But the level-headed Kisner hasn't wasted much time fretting over the second-place finish.

He spent Monday at his brother-in-law's Duck Bottom Hunting Plantation in Horatio, South Carolina, hunting hogs in a remote place where no there was no cellphone service.

He says it was ''just a cool way to decompress.''
