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. Aug 27 - 9:14 AM

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.
Aug 5 - 9:32 PM

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.
Jul 10 - 1:16 PM

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.
Jun 29 - 5:55 PM

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.
Jun 28 - 5:13 PM

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.
Jun 27 - 5:15 PM

When the dust settled, Brendon de Jonge added up a 3-over-par 34-39=73 for his score in the third round of the U.S. Open.

de Jonge has a reputation for poor play on the weekend, so it was a developing story when he charged up the leaderboard with four birdies and two bogeys over his first 11 holes. He reverted to the BdJ we have grown accustomed to seeing over the years, squaring three bogeys and a double bogey over his final seven holes at Pinehurst No. 2. He remains inside the top 10 entering the finale round at 1-over 211.
Jun 14 - 7:11 PM

Brendon de Jonge carded an even-par 35-35=70 in his second round of the U.S. Open to post 2-under 138 and take the third slice of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

None of the tri-leaders will go in the books tonight as atop the leaderboard once the cut of low 60 and ties falls, but he can enjoy it in real time. After surgical precision on Thursday, de Jonge managed "only" 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation today, but he balanced three bogeys with three birdies. Today's effort secures his seventh payday in as many starts in majors -- he's 2-for-2 in the U.S. Open -- but he's still chasing his first top 25.
Jun 13 - 12:49 PM

Brendon de Jonge crafted a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the U.S. Open.

The cut-making machine lit up Pinehurst today. He split all 14 fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation en route to four birdies against two bogeys. This is just his second start in the U.S. Open after tying for 33rd at Pebble Beach in 2010. He signed his card this evening with a share of the clubhouse lead.
Jun 12 - 6:24 PM

Brendon de Jonge tied for 33rd place in his 2010 U.S. Open debut and arrives at Pinehurst No. 2 this week for his second U.S. Open appearance.

The Zimbabwean is rounding into form as of late, with four top 30s in his last five starts. Although void of top 25s, his 6-for-6 major championship record is impressive. De Jonge is a natural when it comes to making the weekend, and that makes him very appealing to DFS gamers this week.
Jun 10 - 11:02 AM

Brendon de Jonge carded a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship, securing a top-10 finish at 9-under 279.

Considering de Jonge began his week at Quail Hollow Club with an 80, it's a huge bounce back that he's managed to crack the top 10. Sunday's round featured four birdies to just one bogey, with highlights including a 29'10" birdie from off the green on the par-4 fourth and a 23'2" birdie at the par-5 seventh. This goes in the books as his first top 10 of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season.
May 4 - 4:42 PM

Brendon de Jonge backed up his course-record 62 at Quail Hollow Club with a third-round 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the Wells Fargo Championship.

After piling on four birdies on his front nine, he traded a birdie and a bogey on his inward nine during Saturday's third round. His highlight was a 15-footer at the par-3 sixth, managing to gain over three strokes on the field with the flat stick. He had a front-row seat to watching Phil Mickelson's 63, which challenged to break de Jonge's mark from a day before. BdJ will try and hoist his first PGA TOUR trophy in Sunday's final round.
May 3 - 3:57 PM

Brendon de Jonge thrashed Quail Hollow for a course-record-tying, bogey-free, 10-under-par 30-32=62 in his second round of the Quail Hollow Championship.

Oh, what a difference a day makes. He opened with an 8-over 80 during which he went 0-for-8 in opportunities to break par, instead squaring six bogeys and a double. Today, he went 5-for-5 in scrambling and buried eight birdies to complement a 21-yard hole-out for eagle at the par-4 14th. Five of his birdies were of notable length, including a zero-putt seven-yarder at 16 and conventional conversions from 20'7" and 40'1" at Nos. 1 and 4, respectively. This goes in the books as de Jonge's lowest round of the year and the third time that he's carded a career-low 62. Rory McIlroy was the first and previously only golfer to spin a 62 at Quail Hollow. That occurred in the final round of 2010 en route to his first PGA TOUR victory. de Jonge is winless in 193 starts and still has work to do. At 2-under 142, he's seven strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 2 - 1:44 PM

Brendon de Jonge will introduce himself to Augusta National this week as he makes his Masters debut.

The Zimbabwean is a perfect 5-for-5 when it comes to making cuts at major championships, but this will be his first trial at Augusta National. His form has been lackluster this year while playing with a known rib injury. With only two top 25s in 13 events, gamers should lower their expectations this week.
