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. Apr 22 - 8:39 AM

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 cracked the top 20 twice in five starts to kick off his 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign.

Considering he's missed the cut in his other three starts, Svoboda has been a bit of a feast-or-famine player to begin the new season. He tied for eighth in The McGladrey Classic, where he was a co-leader through 54 holes before suffering a final-round 71. He's never won on the PGA TOUR, and while he isn't at the top of the list of players waiting in line for a breakthrough win in 2014-15, he is at least in the conversation.

Overnight co-leader Andrew Svoboda signed for a 1-over-par 33-38=71 after his final round of The McGladrey Classic and posted 11-under 269, three strokes too high to join the playoff.

For the fourth time this week, Svoboda played holes 1-9 bogey-free. Today's experience featured birdies at Nos. 4 and 6. However, he failed to record another birdie and squared three bogeys coming in. That's especially disappointing since he hit 16 greens in regulation, failed to scramble on the other two and added a three-putt from 44-and-a-half feet at the par-4 11th. If there's a bright side, Svoboda will leave the Golden Isles with his third top 10 in 49 PGA TOUR starts.

Today's stroll around Seaside included six birdies, four of which from outside 20 feet! He opened with his longest from 31'7" at the par-4 first hole. Svoboda's only blemish occurred at the par-4 11th where he didn't find the putting surface until his fourth stroke and eventually penciled in a 6. Given his position on the leaderboard and today's clinic, he leads the fields in strokes gained: putting at 9.046.

He three-putted the par-4 16th from just outside 70 feet for his first bogey. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: putting at an aggregate 5.288.

Svoboda faded to finish T18 with a closing 73 in Las Vegas this week, but he's already turned the page. He opened with seven pars, including a 12-and-a-half-footer at the par-4 first. He then buried a birdie look from 22 feet at No. 8. After striping his drive at the par-4 ninth, he jarred his approach from 172 yards for eagle. Feeding off this run, Svoboda piled on with another birdie at 10, this time from 15'11". Overall, he split 11 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens and suffered just one bogey.

The fireworks were plentiful and included six birdies and one eagle, along with four bogeys at TPC Summerlin. Two of his red figures were of note, beginning with a 24'3" birdie at the par-4 fourth and including an eagle from 13'7" on the par-5 13th. Svoboda is one of three non-winners inside the top four, and he hopes to change that with a hot final round on Sunday. His 12 GIR and strokes gained: putting clip of -.725 were both low points of the week. He must correct that in the finale.

The set included three from outside 11 feet, the longest dropping from 17'2" at the par-4 sixth hole. He also squared two bogeys, but was fortunate to escape with a 5 at the par-4 11th when he holed his try from eight yards away just off the green. Svoboda's 36-hole aggregate won't hold for the overnight lead, but he's in terrific position for make his latest run at his first PGA TOUR victory.
