Kevin is the son of former US PGA winner Bob Tway. After several years playing the Korn Ferry Tour, he broke through on the PGA Tour with a win at the 2018 Safeway Open.

Kevin partnered with Rory Sabbatini to win the QBE Shootout pairs event in December 2019. 

Kevin arrested a slide down the world rankings in 2021 with a 2nd place finish at the Hewlett Packard Houston Open.  It remains to be seen whether that was a fluke result.

Significant info

Kevin signed a contract with Wilson to play their clubs in 2020. It's not been a successful switch as he missed 16 cuts in 21 starts and failed to record a single top 10 in 2020.


Pressure Performance Analysis

Kevin hasn't been in contention much over the past couple of years.  As a result, he spoke of feeling nervous in Houston at the end of 2021 when in contention.  His record in years gone by is solid though and he was impressive when winning at the Safeway Open in 2018. His Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set to ⭐⭐⭐ for the time being but he would have been four stars had he had more contention experience.

November 2021
✅ One shot behind going into the final round of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open, Kevin shot a final round 68 to remain in 2nd place.

October 2018
✅ Kevin was 3 shots behind third round leader Brandt Snedeker at the Safeway Open. Shot a final round 71, including birdies at the 71st and 72nd holes, to get into a playoff.


Goes Best When Fresh
Kevin's best performances in 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017 all came after at least a week off so he is a player who goes best when fresh.

Avoid When Playing Here
Kevin traditionally plays poorly on the West Coast of America, avoid backing him in the months of January and February.

Events to back Tway

Charles Schwab Challenge
Kevin has an excellent record at the Charles Schwab Challenge having recorded finishes of 19-5-18 between 2019 and 2017. Even though Colonial is traditionally thought of as a course for shorter, accurate players, he's one to watch there.

Playoff Record


Both of Kevin's wins have come via playoff. In 2018 he defeated Ryan Moore and Brandt Snedeker to win the Safeway Open, reeling off three straight birdies in the playoff. In 2013 he defeated Spencer Levin to win the Albertsons Boise Open.

Significant Quotes

2021 Hewlett Packard Houston Open
"I live in Florida, so been playing on bermuda for about five or six years at home, so I'm used to it. I putted well today, it's nice."

"I think this just more plays like Oklahoma golf where I'm from in Oklahoma. It's more same kind of fairways, same kind of wind, so I'm comfortable in these conditions."

"I was a little nervous yesterday (round 3) but tried to stick to my process and I definitely did a better job of that today than I did yesterday."

Q. Do you consider yourself a good wind player prior to this?
KEVIN TWAY: Yeah, absolutely. Grew up in Oklahoma, live in Florida now, it's windy every day, so and it's kind of what I'm used to.

"This course kind of fits my eye so I love coming back here"
