After recording positive numbers in strokes gained: putting thru his first three rounds, Toms stumbled to a -3.258 on Sunday. Among his misses were a 3'8" for par on the 10th as well as three scoring chances from inside 10 feet. His consolation is a season-best finish on 19 starts, but still sits 140th in the FedExCup standings.

David Toms destroyed Montrêux Golf and Country Club to the tune of 18 points in the third round of the Barracuda Championship and trails 54-hole leader J.J. Henry by one point.

The last of Toms' 13 PGA TOUR victories came in 2011 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Making his 590th career start, he enters Sunday's finale with 40 points and in the final pairing with 2012 champ Henry. Toms began the day with 22 points (solo sixth) and four points back. The 48-year-old circled 10 birdies to shield two bogeys in just his 11th career round at the Barracuda. His romp featured eight conversions from inside seven feet with a pair of 10-footers at the 10th and 18th. He birdied five straight on Nos. 7-11. Toms, runner-up here in 1999 and T7 in 2000, did not play the tournament between 2001 and 2012, returning in 2013 for a T16. He withdrew after two rounds in last year's edition. His season best (and lone top 10) on 18 starts is a T9 at the Sanderson Farms Championship back in November.

David Toms chased his 13-point opening round of the Barracuda Championship with nine points in today's second round.

With 22 through two rounds, Toms is just four in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

David Toms rung up 13 points in today's opening round of the Barracuda Championship and sits two points off the clubhouse lead.

Toms was a good get for this tournament. The major champion is in his twilight, of course, but he's a household name and he's played rather well in limited action this season, with six top 25s among 10 paydays. At Montrêux Golf and Country Club today, the 48-year-old piped all 14 fairways -- yeah, big surprise -- and landed 15 greens in regulation. The scoring opportunities yielded six birdies, three of which ranging 13-15 feet. He added a seventh birdie with a hole-out from a bunker 14 yards away at the par-4 15th. At last check, Toms' strokes gained: tee-to-green measured 4.987, good for second-highest in the field.

He grouped today's set of five in a six-hole stretch beginning with a conversion from 20'2" at the par-3 eighth hole. Two others ranged 12-16 feet. Toms' only top 10 of the season occurred in the first opposite-field event when he tied for ninth at the Sanderson Farms Championship in neighboring Mississippi.

Toms toured his last nine in bogey-free 4-under, adding circles on 10, 13, 16 and 18. Tied runner-up in the 2009 Travelers, Toms' set featured four conversions from outside 16 feet, including a prayer that rolled in from 35'0" on the par-3 16th. The veteran capped off his round by jarring his approach from 171 yards to 13 inches for the gimme birdie.

David Toms smoothed a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and his 5-under 205 total has him positioned four shots off the pace.

Toms, a two-time winner of the St. Jude, began the festivities at 4-under (T15) and five shots adrift of the 36-hole lead. Despite hitting just eight greens in regulation, he managed to convert four of them, circling birdies at Nos. 2, 7, 12 and 16, his long of 15'1" coming at the 12th. The 48-year-old, also a two-time runner-up at TPC Southwind, added two critical par saves at 13 and 14, both in excess of eight feet, the latter dropping from 13 feet. Toms couldn't get up-and-down at 17 however, squaring his third bogey on the round. The LSU product will be looking to improve on a season-best T9 at the Sanderson Farms Championship, his lone top 10 in 14 prior starts on the season.
Jun 13 - 8:16 PM

David Toms returns to the site of his 2003 and 2004 victories at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The LSU product enjoys playing in the hot and sticky conditions that often arise here in the South. He's earned five additional top fives besides his victories, proving just how comfortable he is around this venue. On the flip side, he's missed the cut in three of his last four St. Jude starts and arrives in poor form. Gamers should be cautiously optimistic this week.

David Toms smoothed a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of THE PLAYERS and his 7-under 281 looks to be sufficient for a top-20 finish.

Toms, runner-up at THE PLAYERS in 2011, peppered 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation on his way to a five birdie, one double bogey stroll around TPC Sawgrass. After opening with three pars, Toms hit pay dirt on the par-4 fourth rolling in his first birdie of the day from 15'3". He would pencil two more circles on his card at Nos. 6 and 9, the latter dropping from 10'9". The 48-year-old opened his inward half with five consecutive pars before canning a 20-footer on the par-4 15th. After failing to take advantage of the par-5 16th, Toms would rinse his tee ball long at the island green 17th en route to a costly double bogey-5. He would rebound with a closing birdie and will be in line for some valuable FedExCup points.
May 10 - 5:06 PM

David Toms has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Heritage. NOTE: Steve Wheatcroft has also withdrawn as an alternate.

His record at Harbour Town is uninspiring, anyway, so you won't miss him. The 48-year-old is currently 148th in the FedExCup standings, but he hasn't cashed since a T41 at the Farmers over two months ago.

David Toms turned in a 1-under-par 34-36=70 for his opening round of the Valspar Championship.

Anytime he complete 18 holes, his remaining owners get to exhale, but when he signs for a red number, it's time for a celebration. Toms hit only 11 greens in regulation but outpaced four bogeys with five birdies. His longest conventional conversions measured 23'2" and 11'1" at the 14th and fifth holes, respectively, but he also recorded a zero-putt eight-yarder from the fringe at 16.
Mar 12 - 6:43 PM

David Toms is listed in the published field of next week's Valspar Championship.

This will depend on if his back is ready to go. He walked off Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico after only nine holes in the opening round as a result of it. Of course, it's nothing new to gamers, but he's also shown that he can bounce back quickly. Still, with the depth of the field, he's not a smart option at Copperhead in our world. He'd be making his eighth consecutive appearance, but Toms has missed his last two cuts on the track where he hasn't scored better than 1-over 72 in his last four rounds.

David Toms withdrew during his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, citing a back injury

Toms started on the back side of Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico and submitted a 2-over-par 38 with two bogeys before calling it quits. He tied for fourth here last year, so expectations were elevated for a notable effort against this field this week. It's the 15th time in 579 PGA TOUR starts that the 47-year-old has withdrawn mid-tournament. He arrived on the island slotted 108th in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 5 - 10:07 AM

David Toms continues his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at The Honda Classic.

He took a two-week break following his T41 in the Farmers Insurance Open. This his his first trip back to PGA National's Champion Course since 2008, when he missed the cut. That could be a signal that the switch to the current venue of PGA National in 2007 didn't fit his eye. It would be hard to expect much more than just making the cut out of the veteran.
