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."
