Brad Fritsch made his country proud with a bogey-free final round of 6-under-par 34-30=64 to reach 9-under 271 at the RBC Canadian Open, good for a three-way share of ninth place.
He surely gave the fans all they bargained for today. The round started off slowly with a standard 3'6" birdie on the second and nothing else but pars on the outward nine. He ramped up the scoring on the back nine as he birdied the 11th, dropped a 31'2" eagle bomb on the par-5 12th, and circled two more on his way into the clubhouse. Fritsch climbed five spots in FedExCup points to 163rd. The T9 equals his career-best finish (2013 Farmers) in 45 starts. Jul 27 - 1:34 PM

Brad Fritsch coasted to a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open.

The Canuck came up clutch in today's navigation of Royal Montreal, saving par from outside of seven feet on three separate occasions. He dropped in two more from outside that range for birdie, including the 14'2" nugget on the par-5 sixth hole. As Fritsch walked off the 18th green his strokes gained-putting sat at 2.073 for the day. Currently at 3-under 207, the Canadian will be in contention for his third top 25 of the season.

Brad Fritsch carded a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of the John Deere Classic.

The Canadian entered the week 183rd in the FedExCup standings, so his perfect lap around TPC Deere Run was much welcomed. It boosted him to 12-under 201 and moved him inside the top 15. His eight birdies were highlighted by a 17'5" putt at the par-4 opener and a 25'6" bomb at the par-3 12th. He missed just two fairways and one GIR.

Brad Fritsch posted 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

He was the last and easily one of the most surprising of 15 to reach the clubhouse inside the top 10 on the leaderboard. Fritsch missed only two greens in regulation at TPC River Highlands today. He got up and down both times, but three-putted for bogey from 18'4" at the par-4 ninth to taint an otherwise sterling card that featured six birdies. His longest conversion measured 35'7" for birdie at the par-4 17th. While he signed his card sitting three strokes off the overnight lead, he's also established a career low for an opening round.

Brad Fritsch returns to Cromwell, Connecticut, for this week's Travelers Championship.

The Canadian recorded four rounds of par or better in his debut last year on his way to a T51 in this event. Fritsch is having a bit of a sophomore slump this year, with a 5-for-12 record thus far, after going 18-for-24 in his rookie campaign. It's a good idea for gamers to take the wait-and-see approach until his form returns.

Brad Fritsch stumbled to a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in his opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The Canuck was in our crosshairs after withdrawing from the Wells Fargo Championship two weeks ago due to personal reasons. He hit 12 greens in regulation at Las Colinas today and found four birdies, three of which from 10-19 feet, but he squared four bogeys and a double before finishing seven strokes off the clubhouse lead. And it could have been worse if not for a zero-putt six-yarder at 13 and a 13-foot par conversion at the par-4 14th.

Brad Fritsch is listed in the published field of next week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Shortly after withdrawing from last week's Wells Fargo after one round, Fritsch shared an explanation with his followers on Twitter: "WD'd today for personal reasons. Thanks to all who asked and showed concern. Trying to move ahead and look forward to the Byron Nelson." While mildly concerning, the good news is that he didn't cite a physical injury. He placed T77/MDF in his debut at last year's HPBNC and currently rests at 171st in FedExCup points. The Canadian has cashed just once in his last five starts (T29, Puerto Rico).

Brad Fritsch withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship following his opening round.

Fritsch signed for a 7-over-par 38-41=79 before calling it quits. He went 1-for-8 in birdie chances and swallowed eight bogeys. He battled a bulging disc in his back for a time last year, but an explanation was not released for today's decision. The Canadian arrives in Charlotte slotted 171st in FedExCup points.
May 1 - 2:17 PM

Brad Fritsch missed the cut in the 2013 Zurich Classic of New Orleans and is back for a second try this week.

The Canadian is 166th in the FedExCup standings, cashing checks in four of his eight starts including a T10 at the Farmers Insurance Open. While he nearly retained his PGA TOUR card in his rookie season a year ago, recurring back problems forced him down to the Finals to earn his card for this time around. Any FEC points he could garner this week would not only help his chances for a 2014-15 card, but would also count towards the next Tour reshuffle.
Apr 22 - 9:15 PM

Brad Fritsch makes his second stop at the Valero Texas Open.

The Canadian is only 158th in the FedExCup standings, but has cracked the top 30 on three occasions including a T29 in Puerto Rico in his last start. In addition to that, he finished T37 in his first trip to TPC San Antonio last year. He's had two weeks off, but he sets up as a potential sleeper pick this week.
Mar 25 - 8:44 PM

Brad Fritsch put the finishing touches on a solid week at the Farmers Insurance Open with a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in his final round.

Go figure. While he's been strapped with a bulging disc, he's going to validate last year's T9 at Torrey Pines with another strong result today at 6-under 282. While he missed 29 greens in regulation for the week, Fritsch squared only seven bogeys. He hit 15 GIR today but managed only two birdies, so he may feel like he let his best chance at his first victory slip away. And one of those two birdies found the cup from 39'5" at the par-4 10th hole. He also rolled in a par save from 14'10" at 2.
Jan 26 - 6:13 PM

Brad Fritsch carded an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to join a large group in the hunt at 5-under 211.

The Canadian did his damage on the par 5s at Torrey Pines South, circling birdies on each of the first three before narrowly missing a 9'11" effort at the par-5 18th. While those were his only birdies, he limited the damage to three bogeys on a difficult day of scoring. As a Tour Finals graduate, a big finish on Sunday would be huge in terms of future starts in the 2013-14 season.
Jan 25 - 5:37 PM

Brad Fritsch defied logic on the South Course at Torrey Pines in today's second round of the Farmers Insurance Open by going 11-for-11 in scrambling en route to a bogey-free, 2-under-par 35-35=70.

And this included three misses from inside nine feet for birdie. Fritsch split eight (of 14) fairways but needed his short game to get the job done today, obviously. He circled birdies of 15'11" at the par-5 ninth hole and a seven-incher at the par-3 16th to post 5-under 139 and sit five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He arrived this week with only one top 10 in 33 career starts on the PGA TOUR, but it was a T9 at last year's Farmers.
Jan 24 - 6:06 PM

Brad Fritsch fought back injuries the second half of 2013, and had to catch a Hail Mary in the Tour Championship to regain his 2013-14 PGA TOUR card.

The Canadian was well on his way towards retaining his card, but was forced out of the RBC Canadian Open with a back injury. Anyone who follows the small group of Canucks on the PGA TOUR knows how much that tournament means to them, meaning he was in no small amount of pain. After missing the first three cuts of the Tour Finals, he tied for second in the last event of the Finals to earn another year on the PGA TOUR. He withdrew from the Open in his first start of 2013-14 after making the cut, further illustrating a balky back. Given that he is subject to the reshuffle, that was a significant decision. It's hard to count on him in season-long fantasy formats.

Brad Fritsch has been removed from the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Canuck turned in a pair of 4-over-par 74s at Seaside last week and missed the cut by seven strokes. He didn't cite issues with his back on Twitter, instead sticking with an assessment of the X's and O's: "Not my best tournament. Definitely had worst of the conditions, but hit it quite well for the most part. Six three putts killed me." If he's able, next up is next week's World Cup of Golf in Australia.
