Andrew Svoboda converted his 54-hole lead for the win in the Brasil Champions with a 4-under-par 31-36=67 in the final round.
Svoboda converted a birdie on the par-4 18th to end his week one-stroke ahead of Bhavik Patel at 23-under 261. In fact, it was a two-stroke swing on the 72nd hole at Sao Paulo GC. Patel stepped on the tee with a one-shot lead over Svoboda, but Patel's bogey gave Svoboda the opening he need to secure his third career Tour title. Svoboda and Patel were the only two players to sleep on the lead all week, so it was fitting that they battled it out until the bitter end. With this victory, Svoboda moves from 41st to third on the Tour money list. Sun, Apr 3, 2016 08:42:00 PM

Andrew Svoboda fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Brasil Champions and totes a one-stroke lead over Bhavik Patel in to the finale at 19-under 194.

Svoboda has been the model of consistency this week, following up a first-round 64 with back-to-back 65s. One has to think that matching either one of those scores in the final lap around Sao Paulo GC would be enough for him to secure his third career Tour title. He's played 21 of his first 54 holes under par, with 20 birdies and one eagle, to just three bogeys. Already 41st on the Tour money list, a win today would easily vault him inside the top five.

Andrew Svoboda polished off a 6-under-par 35-30=65 in the second round of the Brasil Champions with an eagle on his 17th hole to sleep on the 36-hole co-lead at 13-under 129.

As good as his 65 was on Friday, it failed to match his opening-round 64. Friday's lap around Sao Paulo GC included six birdies and the aforementioned eagle on the par-5 eighth hole to just one bogey. It should be noted that Svoboda began his round on the 10th hole. As a veteran of 106 previous Tour events which includes two wins and two runner-ups, don't expect the veteran to be out of his element in an attempt to close this tournament out in style.

Andrew Svoboda returns to Sycamore Hills Golf Club for his second playing in the Hotel Fitness Championship.

On 30 starts in 2014-15, Svoboda missed twice as many cuts (20) than he made (10), including early departures in 17 of his last 20. His three cashes during this stretch didn't crack the top 45. Overall, just one of his paydays on the season went for a top 10 and that came nearly a year ago now at The McGladrey Classic (T8), finishing the PGA TOUR regular season 168th in the FedExCup standings. The 35-year-old missed the cut in the 2013 edition of the Hotel Fitness.

After finishing tied 46th in his 2014 Quicken Loans National debut, Andrew Svoboda returns for this week's playing at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club and enters the tournament a distant 161st in the FedExCup standings.

Svoboda notched his first two career TOUR top 10s in 2013-14 en route to finishing 94th in the FedExCup standings, advancing to the second round of the FEC Playoffs prior to being eliminated. His 2014-15 campaign is languishing in no man's land adding just one top 10 (T8, McGladrey Classic) on 27 starts, missing 17 cuts, including 10 in a row at one point. Between the Northern Trust Open in mid-February and The Greenbrier Classic earlier this month, Svoboda finished over par in 16 consecutive starts, a cumulative 82-over-par during that span. The 35-year-old ranks 179th on TOUR in scoring average at 71.919. He has managed to cash in his last two starts, finishing T48 at the Barbasol Championship and T58 at last week's RBC Canadian Open.

Andrew Svoboda submitted a 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

And he opened with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole. It would be his only blemish. Svoboda rallied for four birdies before making the turn, a spurt capped by a conversion from 25'6" at the par-3 18th hole. He added two birdies coming in, including a walk-off 3 from 28'2" at No. 9. He totaled 14 greens in regulation. This is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 64 at the 2014 Wyndham Championship. The 35-year-old arrived in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, slotted 154th in the FedExCup standings, but he's only one shot off the early clubhouse lead today.

Andrew Svoboda heads back to the Northeast for this week's Travelers Championship.

The St. Johns University alum welcomes the chance to tee it up just 100 miles from where he attended school. Svoboda enters the week on the heels of 14 consecutive finishes outside the top 50, failing to play the weekend in 11 of them. After finishing 94th in the FedExCup standings in 2013-14, he currently sits in just 151st, in need of a big splash sooner rather than later.

Andrew Svoboda turns his attention to this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

To say that Svoboda is in the midst of a slump is an understatement. In fact, the 35-year-old has not cashed a paycheck in eight consecutive starts and the last time he did, he finished dead last (76th, Puerto Rico Open). Overall, he's 7-for-18 on the season and ranks 143rd in FedExCup points. Svoboda missed the cut (by six) in his CPI debut last year.

Andrew Svoboda looks to end his five-tournament slump as he readies for this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Svoboda has finished outside the top 50 in 11 of his 15 starts this season. He has to feel relief this week while returning to the site of his career-best T2. Svoboda missed the cut at last week's Heritage, but also walked away with an ace on his card, holing out from 177 yards on the par-3 seventh hole in round one. He carried that momentum over to a 4-under 68 in round two, and could be on the verge of returning to form.

Andrew Svoboda has gained entry into this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Svoboda was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday. He found a spot in the field of 120 when three others withdrew. This will mark his first appearance at Bay Hill. Since finishing T32 at Torrey Pines six weeks ago, he's 2-for-3 but without a top 70. But he sprinkled in an induction to the Athletics Hall of Fame at his alma mater, St. John's University.

Andrew Svoboda posted 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship, finishing three strokes off the overnight lead.

It's never fun finishing last of 76 as he did in Puerto Rico, but the beauty of being a touring professional is that everyone starts at even the following week. Svoboda should be more than pleased with today's score given he split only five (of 14) fairways and hit nine greens in regulation. He limited the damage to a pair of bogey-5s while picking off five birdies. The set included conversions from 17'4", 14'4" and 40'8" at Nos. 13, 14 and 18, respectively. He even rolled in a par save from 10'8" at the par-4 third. He entered the week ranked 88th in the FedExCup standings and with a consecutive cuts made streak of five.

Andrew Svoboda has been removed from the published field of this week's Honda Classic.

Svoboda was scheduled to go off the first hole at PGA National's Champion Course at 11:55 a.m. ET. He was a late WD prior to his lid-lifter of the Humana Challenge five weeks ago, but he's played thrice since. He cashed in all three with a T17 at the WM Phoenix Open as the highlight. Svoboda sits 72nd in the FedExCup standings, so he can afford this week off. It'll give him the opportunity to attend his induction into the Athletics Hall of Fame at St. John's University on Saturday morning.

Andrew Svoboda has collected four consecutive paydays ahead of this week's Honda Classic.

The Palm Beach Gardens resident will feel right at home this week as he makes his Honda Classic debut. He enters the week ranked 78th in strokes gained:total, doing most of the damage with his putter. His local knowledge combined with good 2014-15 form makes Svoboda an interesting sleeper in deep leagues.

Andrew Svoboda is set for his first appearance in the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Svoboda was a late scratch from last week's Humana Challenge, but it appears that nothing was seriously wrong with him since he's back on the saddle at TPC Scottsdale this week. He ranks 74th in the FedExCup standings, with a T18-T8 run in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and The McGladrey Classic standing as the best stretch of the 2014-15 season. His most recent return was a T51 in the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Andrew Svoboda has withdrawn from this week's Humana Challenge.

He was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at La Quinta Country Club at 9:50 a.m. PT. Svoboda tied for 51st place last week at Waialae. He's 63rd in the FedExCup standings thanks to a pair of top 20s in the fall.
