Stuart Appleby begins his week at The Barclays ranked 98th in the FedExCup standings.
The Aussie currently sits just on the proper side of the bubble in terms of progressing to the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston next week, but can't afford to rest on his laurels. He must remain inside the top 100 in the FEC standings following action at Ridgewood CC this week to continue. With a T19 in 2008 and a T52 at this venue in 2010, he stands a reasonable chance at seeing the weekend. Aug 19 - 3:36 PM

Stuart Appleby shared a piece of 23rd place in the 2001 RBC Canadian Open at Royal Montreal Golf Club and returns for another shot in this week's edition.

Appleby enters the week ranked 92nd in the FedExCup standings and is one of the few golfers in the field with experience at the renovated Royal Montreal GC. He was a member of the International squad at the 2007 Presidents Cup, where he went 2-3 in his five matches. Course experience parlayed with good season form makes Appleby an interesting second-tier option this week.

Stuart Appleby capitalized on his magic show in the lid-lifter of the Quicken Loans National by turning in a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round.

As we chronicled on Thursday, Appleby had no business signing for a red number, but at least he made it count today. He went 5-for-6 in scrambling with a bogey-5 at the 17th hole while picking off five birdies. While he circled birdies from 13'8" and 12'2", respectively at Nos. 7 and 11, his longest conversion measured 18'5" for par at the par-4 fourth where he found trouble right of the fairway off the tee. AT 5-under 137, he's just one stroke off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
Jun 27 - 5:30 PM

Stuart Appleby smoked-and-mirrored his way to a 1-under-par 36-34=70 in the opening round of the Quicken Loans National.

The Aussie set the tone for some short-game wizardry early when he popped in a chip from 22 yards from the rough for birdie at the par-3 10th hole. He'd bogey three of the next five, but find three birdies against no bogeys or worse the rest of the way. Overall, Appleby split only five (of 14) fairways and hit just half of the greens in regulation en route to the red number. He's three swings adrift of the clubhouse lead.
Jun 26 - 1:11 PM

Stuart Appleby circled seven birdies for a final round 6-under-par 33-33=64 at the Travelers Championship, going into the clubhouse at 9-under 207.

The flat stick caught fire for Appleby, rolling in eight putts outside six feet on the day. His strokes gaines-putting sat at 3.804 as he walked off the 18th green. Mark this down as the season-low round for Appleby, and his first 64 since the 2011 Wyndham Championship. This won't stay inside the top 10, but should be good enough for his sixth top 25 of the season.
Jun 22 - 2:34 PM

Stuart Appleby enjoyed a 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The Aussie was already in our crosshairs this week since he called it quits before his second round of the Memorial with a back injury, but he has our attention for a different reason today. Returning to TPC Southwind early this morning, Appleby put the finishing touches on a splendid lid-lifter with a birdie-3 at the ninth hole. That chased a hole-in-one at the par-3 eighth where he wielded a 7-iron from 157 yards. Elsewhere, he traded four birdies with two bogeys. Two of those complementary par breakers measured between 11 and 13 feet. This matches his lowest aggregate of the season established four times previously. He's two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Jun 6 - 8:51 AM

Stuart Appleby withdrew from the Memorial prior to his second round due to a back injury.

He was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 12:32 p.m. ET. Appleby opened with a 5-over-par 37-40=77. This drops him to 13-for-19 on the season. It's his second WD (Mayakoba). He started the week ranked 80th in the FedExCup standings. Assuming he's able, he'll try again at next week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.
May 30 - 12:33 PM

Stuart Appleby enters the Memorial Tournament ranked 80th in the FedExCup standings.

This is the lowest the Aussies has sat in those standings since he tied for ninth at the Humana Challenge back in January. He's missed his last three cuts at Muirfield Village, so perhaps it's best to temper expectations this week. In 16 previous tries, he has just one top 10, a T7 in 2001, in this event.
May 27 - 8:51 PM

Stuart Appleby crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The Aussie is fresh off a T12 at Harbour Town, his fourth top 25 of the season. That's one more (in 15 starts) than all of 2013 (in 25). Today at TPC Louisiana, he went 3-for-3 in scrambling and buried five birdies, including respective rolls from 15'10" and 10'10" at Nos. 13 and 18, respectively. His most impressive par save measured 13'8" at 4.
Apr 24 - 2:27 PM

Stuart Appleby turned in a bogey-free, 4-under 33-34=67 in his final round of the RBC Heritage.

Appleby posted the same score on Saturday. Today, he split 10 (of 14) fairways on his way to 11 greens in regulation. He also made good use of the flatstick, most notable was his birdie putt of 36'1" on the par-3 14th hole. With a score of 4-under 280, the Aussie currently assumed outright possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 20 - 2:33 PM

Stuart Appleby carded a 2-under-par 38-32=70 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, finishing two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Appleby has turned into a nice investment for full-season gamers this season even though he hadn't painted a red number in his previous seven rounds. He's 65th in FedExCup points and on his way to pad his total in San Antonio. He hit only 10 greens and swallowed two bogeys and a double, but converted six birdies before finishing with a strokes gained-putting split near 4.090. His highlights included rolls of 15'7", 17'1" and 13'11" at the fifth, 12th and 17th holes, respectively, all for birdie.
Mar 27 - 7:39 PM

Stuart Appleby turned in a 2-over-par 39-33=72 in the final round of The Honda Classic, but it was good enough for a top 10 at 5-under 275.

The Aussie seemingly fell out of contention for a high finish when he followed a birdie at the par-5 third with five bogeys over the next six holes. With his full attention on PGA National's back nine, he settled for seven pars while sinking a 33'2" birdie putt on the par-4 12th and ending his day with a 20'4" birdie on the par-5 18th. This is Appleby's second top 10 of 2013-14.
Mar 2 - 5:38 PM

Stuart Appleby fired 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of The Honda Classic to take control of the clubhouse at 7-under 203.

The Aussie's round was blemish-free, picking up birdies on half of the first eight holes at PGA National before hopping on the par train for the next nine. He closed out his round with a chip-in birdie at the par-5 18th. Having made seven of nine cuts in 2013-14, Appleby is quietly attempting to mount a career renaissance. His last PGA TOUR win came at The Greenbrier Classic in 2010, and he has one top-10 finish this season.
Mar 1 - 1:55 PM

Stuart Appleby grabbed the outright clubhouse lead at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-31=65 on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club.

He missed only one of 13 fairways and went 5-for-5 in scrambling while picking off six birdies along the way. The set featured two each on the par 3s, par 4s and par 5s. Don't count him out despite a relatively down year in 2013. He arrived this week with five paydays in seven starts on the season, one of which a T9 at the Humana Challenge. Up next in his rotation tomorrow is Pebble Beach.
Feb 6 - 7:38 PM

Stuart Appleby posted a tidy 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Humana Challenge to finish his week at 21-under 267.

Appleby picked up eight birdies and handed back one bogey on his lap around Palmer Private at PGA West, taking advantage of four of the five par 5s. While technically the clubhouse leader until Zach Johnson posts in a matter of minutes, the Aussie will record his best finish of the 2013-14 season. His previous best was a T23 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Classic. If there is a lesson to be reinforced, it is that he still has the ability to show up in shootouts on easy courses.
