David Toms settled for a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.
He posted 7-under 135 to sit two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but it's still a disappointing day since he failed to parlay Thursday's success into a charge today. Overall, Toms landed only 10 greens in regulation and offset two bogeys with three birdies. In step with his regression, his longest conversion dropped for bogey from 25'10" at the par-5 17th hole. His most notable birdies measured 16'2" at the par-5 10th where he began the day and 13'7" at 3. Jul 11 - 2:12 PM

David Toms turned in a 6-under-par 34-31=65 for his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

Toms is coming off a relatively rare feat of recording four red numbers in the same tournament without cracking the top 25. Such was his experience at The Greenbrier Classic where he tied for 26th at 5-under 69-69-68-69=275. His putter made the trip to the Quad Cities today as he poured in seven birdies, five of which from outside 13 feet. The highlight occurred at the par-3 12th where he drilled it home from 25'2". At last check, his strokes gained-putting split sat at 3.343. His lone gaffe occurred at the par-5 second where he rinsed his approach and two-putted from 10'7" for bogey. He signed his card sitting just two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

David Toms returns to TPC Deere Run for this week's John Deere Classic.

While Toms is a veteran of 12 editions of this event, he's only played the current venue four times. Two of those counted for missed cuts, while another was a withdrawal. His only paycheck came in 2005 when he shared 40th. At 115th in the FedExCup standings, it's likely that he's added this to his schedule as an attempt to bank a few extra points to assure his inclusion into the Playoffs later this season.
Jul 9 - 9:40 AM

David Toms has been removed from the published field of this week's Travelers Championship.

He hasn't teed it up at TPC River Highlands since a T11 in 2011. Toms missed the cut on the number at last week's U.S. Open, his 15th start of the season. He's 116th in FedExCup points and 112th in earnings.

David Toms made the turn at the Crowne Plaza Invitational with the lead in the final round, but settled for an even-par 33-37=70 and a tie for fifth at 7-under 273.

Toms erased a bogey at the par-4 third with three consecutive birdies beginning on the fifth hole and highlighted by a 36'8" bomb on the par-4 sixth. He reached 9-under and led at the turn, but bogeys on the 10th, 13th and 14th holes were only partially offset by a birdie at the par-4 15th from 15'3". He needed to then birdie two of his final three holes to join Jason Dufner and Adam Scott in a playoff, but was unable to do so.
May 25 - 5:48 PM

David Toms conjured a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational to join Hideki Matsuyama in the clubhouse lead at 7-under 203.

It's getting tight at the top, as there were 16 players within two shots of the lead at the time Toms became the second to post 7-under. His round included six birdies to just one bogey, with each birdie falling from inside 10 feet. Despite not snaking in any long ones, he still gained well over a stroke with the flat stick. He split eight fairways and landed 12 GIR.
May 24 - 3:32 PM

David Toms is back for his 17th appearance in this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The course history speaks for itself with 10 top-30 finishes in 16 attempts, including a victory in 2011. Toms just needs a 5th place finish this week to have successfully finished in every position first through fifth. In addition, he's entering the week with four consecutive cuts made. A lot of arrows are ticking up for Toms this week as an option in deeper formats.
May 21 - 10:53 AM

David Toms makes his annual pilgrimage to TPC Louisiana for this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The local fan favorite will look to appease the crowds this week as he attempts to improve on his stellar TPC Louisiana record. Toms has six consecutive cuts made at the venue, with his lone blemish coming during the venue's inaugural year (2005).
Apr 22 - 11:27 AM

David Toms returns to the Golf Club of Houston for the Shell Houston Open after a four year absence.

The veteran has missed five-of-eight cuts during the 2014 campaign. Ball-striking has not been an issue for Toms, but he is still searching for his putting stroke. Through 17 measured rounds, Toms has lost 13.705 putting strokes to the field (168th in Strokes Gained-Putting).
Mar 31 - 11:50 PM

David Toms posted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Puerto Rico Open to finish the week at 16-under 272.

Toms picked up six birdies, which would have been enough for him to contend for the title were it not for a bogey and a double bogey along the way. Still, this is a nice accomplishment in that it represents his first top-10 finish of 2013-14. Perhaps it is a signal of things to come. He split 87.5 percent driving accuracy led the tournament.
Mar 9 - 4:30 PM

Davis Toms crafted a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open and enters the finale in a tie for fifth at 13-under 203.

Toms put together a pretty clean scorecard, erasing an early birdie with six birdies and adding 11 pars. Accuracy has been his key, splitting every fairway and landing 13 GIR on Saturday. He leads the tournament in driving accuracy at 88.10 percent and ranks inside the top five in GIR. With his previous best finish in 2013-14 a T27 at The McGladrey Classic, it seems a lock that he will establish a new benchmark this week.
Mar 8 - 3:54 PM

David Toms poured in nine birdies en route to an 8-under-par 32-32=64 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Toms still has it. He missed only one fairway and one green in regulation today, yet still squared a bogey at the par-3 eighth hole, his penultimate of the round. While the veteran doesn't contend like the old days, it's been less than seven months since he shredded Sedgefield Country Club for a closing 62 at the Wyndham Championship where he tied for 16th. He's currently 8-under 136, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 7 - 2:49 PM

David Toms is set to compete in his 18th Waste Management Phoenix Open.

It's tough to get a read for the 47-year-old. He's fully exempt via the top 125 in earnings, but he limited his schedule to a career-low 16 starts. This week's appearance is his fourth of the new season. His most recent of four top 10s at TPC Scottsdale occurred in 2009 (T4), but he's been under par in six of his last eight rounds on it since.
Jan 27 - 6:46 PM

David Toms finished the 2013 season ranked 108th on the PGA TOUR money list despite failing to crack the top 125 in the FedExCup standings.

Consider the LSU product among the relieved that the money list still had a place in deciding full status for 2013-14. As more and more metrics rely only on the FedExCup standings, the money list is morphing into a thing of the past. He made 10 of 16 cuts in 2013, but was also devoting time to getting his golf academy off the ground during his off weeks. He's made each of his two cuts in 2013-14.

David Toms is set to begin his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Toms has only played in Las Vegas once since 1998, sharing 62nd in 2009. It can be assumed that his inclusion of this event in his schedule is a direct result of the Fall Series carrying the additional perks of FedExCup points and a Masters invitation to the winner. It's hard to know what to expect, but rust isn't out of the question.
