Brendon de Jonge entered the holiday break residing ninth in the FedExCup standings.

A big reason as to why the Virginia Tech product is in such a lofty spot was his playoff loss to Robert Streb at The McGladrey Classic. de Jonge has been considered for several years to be one of the better players on the PGA TOUR without a victory. In addition to his finish at Sea Island, he has cashed in each of his other three starts including a T13 at the CIMB Classic. He remained aboard and added a T15 in Turkey and a T38 today in Australia. With his 2015-16 PGA TOUR card already all but secure, expect the big fella to play with some freedom and potentially nab a breakthrough win this season. Worst case, he'll be one of the busiest machines at our disposal.

Brendon de Jonge closed out his third round of the CIMB Classic with a birdie at the par-5 18th hole to sign for a 7-under-par 33-32=65.

He went out in the second threesome off the first tee at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club today, but couldn't finish before the weather delay, instead getting stranded after circling a birdie at the par-4 17th hole. It turned out that patience paid off. de Jonge totaled eight birdies in all after opening par-bogey. At 8-under 208, he's the leader in the clubhouse, but that distinction will be short-lived.

The third round of the CIMB Classic was delayed for inclement weather at 12:21 p.m. local time (12:21 a.m. ET). UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 2:45 p.m. local time. UPDATE #2: Play resumed officially at 2:42 p.m. local time.

This is the earliest the horn has sounded in any of the three days in Kuala Lumpur. None of the 77 golfers that remain in the field have finished 54 holes. All have completed at least nine. When play resumes, Brendon de Jonge will polish off what has been a fruitful day. He's 6-under-par through 17 holes with seven birdies against one bogey. He opened the tournament with a 2-under 70 to prove that the playoff loss in Sea Island and the long travel didn't put an end to his momentum, but the week may have caught up with him on Friday as he shot 1-over 73. However, with today's effort thus far, he sits T11 at 7-under through 53 holes, just five strokes off the pace of Sergio Garcia, who is through 10 holes in his third round. Incidentally, preferred lies has been in play throughout the tournament.

Brendon de Jonge defied his reputation in the final round of The McGladrey Classic with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 to reach 14-under 266 and sit on a share of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

de Jonge should be proud of himself today. He's often the first to expect to fade when in contention on Sunday, but he opened birdie-birdie-birdie at Seaside to shake away the demons. The third birdie of that run dropped in from 19'11" at the par-3 third hole. He added birdies from 12'4" and 40'9" at Nos. 10 and 12, respectively, before parring the last six. de Jonge dealt with injury during the 2013-14 season and hadn't finished inside the top 30 in his last 10 starts, so go ahead and make a note that he's, indeed, a horse for this week's host track. PLAYOFF UPDATE: After a textbook par at the par-4 18th hole to extend the playoff, he landed his tee ball safely and pin-high on the green at the par-3 17th, albeit some distance from the cup. After watching eventual champ Robert Streb cover the flag stick, de Jonge's run at birdie burned the right edge. He settled for his second runner-up finish in 213 PGA TOUR starts, but this was his first playoff.

Brendon de Jonge managed a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic to post 9-under 201 and sit three strokes adrift of the 54-hole co-leaders.

de Jonge hit 14 greens in regulation at Seaside today, but bogeyed three of the other four holes to take the bite out of four birdies. His longest conversions measured 13'7" and 17'4" at the first and seventh holes, respectively, both falling for birdie. Now comes the fun part. Veteran gamers know that he's still a non-winner for a reason. When in contention on Sunday, he often fades. de Jonge ranked T138 in final-round scoring average in 2013-14 despite 11 red numbers. He collected only two top 10s. In four previous starts at the McGladrey, he's scored under par in every finale and shot 65 in the last two. Something will give tomorrow.

Brendon de Jonge smoothed a bogey-free, 32-32=64 in his second round of The McGladrey Classic to post 8-under 132 at the break, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Seaside this morning and split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation in plum conditions. de Jonge holed six birdies, three of which ranging 10-16 feet; he didn't miss from inside 10 feet all day. He's now 5-for-5 at this tournament where he'll enter this weekend gunning to challenging a personal-best T4 on the track in 2012. The 34-year-old entered the week having finished outside the top 30 in his last 10 starts, so ending that drought is a more realistic goal. Of course, gamers know to hold their breath when he's in contention, so all bets are off in the next two rounds.

Brendon de Jonge secured a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his third round of the Open and reaches the 54-hole mark at 3-under 213.

The Virginia Tech product spread three birdies and three bogeys across his lap around Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course. He really gained ground with an eagle from 92 yards on the par-5 16th. The putter was impressive, resulting in birdies from 13'2", 17'3", and 8'11" on the par-4 first, par-5 fifth and par-4 14th holes respectively. Scoring is proving to be difficult for the early groups in the third round, so de Jonge could find himself in position for an eventual top-25 finish after making the cut on the number.

Brendon de Jonge shared a piece of 9th place at the 2013 Deutsche Bank Championship and returns this week for another crack at TPC Boston.

The Zimbabwean is known for his birdie-barrage mentality, so it's no surprise to see him succeed in a shootout event where going low is vital. Prior to last year, he hadn't finished inside the top 40 in three attempts here, so the volatility is high. With 23 cuts made in 30 events, de Jonge finds himself ranked 79th in the FedExCup standings. His cut-making ability sets himself up as a good option for salary-cap gamers.

Brendon de Jonge spun a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of The Barclays, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

de Jonge is the fourth to elbow a spot on the top perch on the leaderboard, but he's the first from the afternoon wave. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to six birdies against a lone bogey at the par-4 14th hole. His set of par breakers included a pair from outside 11 feet, but the longest found the cup from the fringe nine yards away at 13. The big fella entered the Playoffs at 71st in points, but he's no stranger for finding a groove at this time of year. In the 2013 edition, he recorded top 20s in all four events.

Brendon de Jonge enters the PGA Championship having made 11 of his last 12 cuts on the PGA TOUR.

While de Jonge doesn't scare the top of the leaderboard all that often, he offers gamers the peace of mind that he will most likely make the cut at Valhalla Golf Club. For DFS gamers, that matters if he's priced right. One word of caution, his only missed cut in that span of tournaments came at Hoylake in The Open Championship. Perhaps the major stage isn't quite the perfect fit for him just yet.

Brendon de Jonge posted a 6-under-par 32-33=65 for his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

It's hard not to love de Jonge in a shootout, but his form has been a bit off overall this season. Today's round featured a microcosm of it. He was bogey-free 8-under with eight birdies through 16 holes. Four of the par breakers ranged 13-20 feet and he opened the walk around TPC Deere Run with a par save from the fringe four yards away at the par-5 10th. However, he stumbled in with bogeys on Nos. 8 and 9 to finish one stroke adrift of the early clubhouse lead.

Brendon de Jonge held on for a 2-over-par 38-35=73 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to secure a top-10 finish at 1-under 283.

de Jonge swallowed two double bogeys and a bogey on his final lap around Congressional Country Club, but managed three birdies. Two of those birdies came in his final three holes, with a 10'8" effort on the par-5 16th preceding a 27'7" closing birdie at the 18th. This will be just his second top 10 of the season.

Brendon de Jonge managed an even-par 35-36=71 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National and is one off the clubhouse lead at 3-under 211.

de Jonge was in the midst of his typical weekend fade with bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes at Congressional Country Club, but circled an unlikely birdie from 28'4" to end his day. It was his third birdie, to go with three bogeys, of the afternoon. BdJ has long been in the conversation of best active player to have never won a PGA TOUR event, and Sunday looks to be one of his best chances to change that. His 1.613 putting average was second at the time of his posting.

Brendon de Jonge carded a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his second round of the Quicken Loans National to post 3-under 139 at the break and sit three strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse tri-leaders.

de Jonge continues to play pretty much everywhere, but despite 17 paydays entering the week, he's banked just over $825K and ranks 74th in the FedExCup standings. That's what picking off only three top 25s will do. Today was pretty much vintage as he hit 11 greens, but rallied for five birdies against two bogeys. His highlight disappeared for birdie from 20'8" at the par-4 12th hole.
