Brendon de Jonge pieced together a 3-under-par 33-34=67 while taking on the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club, keeping his name in the mix with an 8-under 134 aggregate at the midpoint of The RSM Classic.
The Zimbabwean entered the week with missed cuts in his last 10 PGA TOUR starts. However, he was also entering with a 6-for-7 record at this event, including a four-pack of top 20s. So far course history is winning out for de Jonge who has traded 11 birdies and an eagle with three bogeys and a double, through 36 holes. Today, it was all about his iron play as he gained 3.851 strokes approaching-the-green. Most notably, he holed out from 138 yards for an unconventional eagle at the par-4 13th. The 37-year-old hasn't picked up a top 10 since the 2015 Shell Houston Open, but his fondness for Sea Island should help him hang around this weekend. Nov 17 - 3:11 PM

Sponsor invite and World No. 1172 Brendon de Jonge makes final preparations for his eighth consecutive RSM Classic.

The Virginia Tech alum finished a career-worst 221st in the FedExCup standings last season, missing 12 of 14 cuts, and missing the FEC Playoffs for a second straight year. Inclusive of two MCs to open this season, he's now MC'd 10 consecutive. In his last 46 events on TOUR, the 37-year-old has missed 33 cuts with just two top-25 finishes and no top 10s. He's 6-for-7 at the RSM, missing the cut last year for the first time, with four top 25s and two top 10s, including a career-tying-best P2 three years ago (68-64-69-65).

Sponsor invite and World No. 705 Brendon de Jonge arrives for his eighth Memorial Tournament at 208th in the FedExCup standings.

The Virginia Tech alum has made just seven starts this season on Veteran Member status. He's cashed only two checks, a T26 at the season-opener in Napa and a T71/MDF at the Shell Houston Open. In his most recent start four weeks ago, the North Carolina resident missed the cut (by five) at the Wells Fargo in Wilmington, North Carolina, after rounds of 73-77. He's 4-for-7 at the Memorial with one top 25, a T12 on debut in 2010. The 36-year-old also had a T28 in 2014 but has MC'd both of the last two editions by one stroke each time.

Brendon de Jonge rallied for a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach 5-under 139, up two spots on the live leaderboard to T5, two strokes back of 36-hole clubhouse leaders Dustin Johnson and Luke List.

The 36-year-old arrived off a season-best T11 at the opposite-field Barbasol, just his second top 25 of the season in 26 starts. After an opening 68, he kicked off R2 with a 10'5" birdie on the par-4 10th but erased it with bogey-5s at the 14th and 17th on failed scrambles. After the break, he added a birdie-3 at the fifth (from the fringe) and a chip-in birdie at the par-3 seventh from 25'10" away. The Virginia Tech alum made just one conventional birdie on 10 greens in regulation, didn't birdie any of the four par 5s, but salvaged the round with 2.385 SG: Around-the-Green.

Brendon de Jonge circled seven birdies on his way to a 4-under-par 32-36=68 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, two off the early pacesetter Luke List.

The Zimbabwean opened the day with back-to-back birdies, sticking a wedge to 4 feet at the par-4 first and rolling in a 6'6" putt at the par-5 second hole. He added two more circles before the turn, including a 36'5" bomb at the par-3 seventh. His flat stick wasn't done working yet, firing in a 22'6" birdie blast at the par-4 11th and drilling two more birdies from 8-to-9 feet coming in. It's been a quiet season for de Jonge, just 10-for-26 but this round could be the spark he needs to turn it around and possibly crack the FedExCup Playoffs. He currently ranks 155th in the FEC standings.

Brendon de Jonge gallops into Muirfield Village Golf Club for a seventh appearance at this week's Memorial.

The Zimbabwean is struggling this year, posting nothing better than a T33 since the calendar flipped to 2016. He's 5-for-16 during that stretch and currently ranks 144th in the FedExCup standings. He's declined, year-over-year, in all four strokes gained categories, so it's not one part of the game that has fallen off. At this event particularly, de Jonge is 4-for-6 with a pair of top 30s, but current form makes it easy to avoid him in all fantasy formats.

Brendon de Jonge fired an even-par 37-33=70 in round one of this week's Honda Classic.

The Zimbabwean opened bogey-bogey today on the back nine, before adding circles on the par-4 12th, par-3 15th, par-4 16th, and par-5 18th holes. The longest putt required in that stretch was a 19'3" roll on the 15th. Making the turn at 2-under 33, de Jonge couldn't keep his foot on the gas, three-putting the par-4 fourth hole for bogey. He added two more bogeys and a birdie coming in to settle for even-par on the day. Unlike many early-season events, this score puts de Jonge in great position, especially if he can get the putter going over the next three rounds.

Brendon de Jonge is in La Jolla, California, for his eighth appearance in the Farmers Insurance Open.

The 35-year-old has a pair of T27s and a personal-best T15/2013 in his last four visits to Torrey Pines (MC/2014). He opened 2015-16 with a missed cut at the Frys.com and book-ended with an early exit at last week's CareerBuilder (74-71-69). In-between, he's posted T13-T27-T58-T58-T33. Just about what gamers have come to expect from the journeyman over his 247 career starts, and we continue to wonder if his first win on TOUR will ever come. de Jonge came close with P2 at last season's McGladrey Classic, but it's his only podium in his last 101 events.

Brendon de Jonge made five starts prior to the holiday break cashing four times with one top-25 finish, a T13 at the Shriners Hospitals, good for 41st in the FedExCup standings.

The 35-year-old shows no signs of slowing down making 31 starts last season. It was the sixth consecutive 30-plus start season for the Zimbabwean. He made 22 cuts with nine top 25s, but did miss nine cuts, the most since missing 13 in 2009. The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident has a lofty 66 top-25 finishes on TOUR in 245 career events but rarely contends with only five podiums and no wins.

Brendon de Jonge crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 at Sea Island's Plantation Course in today's opening round of The RSM Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

It's hardly a secret how well the Zimbabwean has played in this tournament. He's cashed in every edition and ranks fourth in all-time earnings, highest among non-winners. His career-best finish on the PGA TOUR occurred here last year when he lost in a playoff to Robert Streb. So, it makes sense that he took his talents to the new co-host and poured in five birdies, including on all four par 5s. Overall, de Jonge found 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation. Expect him to keep the pedal down as he'll take on the Seaside Course for the remainder of the tournament.

Brendon de Jonge reached the midpoint of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in 9-under-par 67-66=133 and shared the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Nick Watney.

It's been some time since the 35-year-old from Zimbabwe has made noise on the PGA TOUR. He's gone 17 consecutive starts without a top 20. Of course, de Jonge is winless in 241 starts, but he's forever a cornerstone to fantasy lineups. In today's loop of TPC Summerlin, he went 7-for-13 in par-breaker opportunities with seven birdies. Two of them ranged 10-13 feet, but his longest conversion of the round disappeared for par from 14'2" at the par-4 10th hole. At the time he signed his card, the big fella led the field with 12 birdies.

Brendon de Jonge has opened the BMW Championship with a pair of 4-under-par 67s to post 8-under 134, three swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It's been five-and-a-half months since de Jonge last recorded a top-15 finish, but he's 49th in the FedExCup standings and within striking range of a return trip to the TOUR Championship where he's made only one appearance (2013). He's notorious for taking advantages of scorable hole locations before fading on Sundays -- an 0-for-239 record helps prove that -- but the winless Zimbabwean gets another crack at breaking through at Conway Farms this weekend. In today's trot, he traded six birdies with two bogeys. His most notable birdie came courtesy of a zero-putt nine-yarder at the par-4 fifth. Two of his other conventional birdies ranged 11-14 feet.

Brendon de Jonge returns to Conway Farms Golf Club for this week's BMW Championship and checks in at 49th in the FedExCup standings.

de Jonge led after 18 holes at the Deutsche Bank two weeks ago opening in 6-under 65. It was the fifth time (in 239 career events) where he lead/co-lead after the first round. He eventually finished T22, wrapping in a disappointing 68-73-73, but did record his first top-25 finish since a T22 at the AT&T Byron Nelson at the end of May, 11 starts ago. The 35-year-old, now in his eighth consecutive season on the PGA TOUR, remains winless. de Jonge's season numbers show 21 made cuts on 30 starts, but just three for top 10s, the most recent was a T5 at the Shell Houston Open the first week of April. His last (of four) BMW appearances was in 2013 --at this week's venue-- where he posted a T18 on rounds of 71-68-70-70.

Overnight leader Brendon de Jonge tacked on a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to trail 36-hole clubhouse leader Charley Hoffman by three shots at 9-under 133.

After equaling his personal-best score of 65 at the par-71 TPC Boston on Friday (in 18 career rounds), de Jonge circled five against two bogeys in round two. Although he fared significantly better in his ball-striking on Saturday vs. yesterday, his putting went the opposite way registering a -0.803 in strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. At a glance, de Jonge landed nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, recording 1.615 putts per GIR. His longest conversion came from 11'1" at the par-5 second and added three more circles on Nos. 3, 4 and 7, each from inside nine feet. He squared his first bogey at the par-3 eighth failing to get up-and-down from a green side bunker. After the break, the 35-year-old penciled six straight pars, including a whiff from 4'11" for birdie-3 at the 13th, before rolling in his last par breaker from 9'2" at the par-4 17th. He squared bogey at the last after missing his fifth GIR, swallowing a bogey-6 to finish up.

Brendon de Jonge spun a 6-under-par 32-33=65 for his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

At last check, he was two shots clear of everyone else in the clubhouse and three in front of anyone still on the course, so the Zimbabwean will likely go in the books as the first-round leader. Yet, when you review his scorecard, it might be tough to process. He split only four (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, but de Jonge limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-3 third hole and covered it with seven birdies. Six of the par breakers traveled longer than 11 feet. The longest of the conventional measured 28 feet at the par-4 first, but he also holed out from off the green 17 yards away at the par-4 10th where he began the round and obviously set the tone for the day. He also poured in a par save from 19'11" at 14. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: putting at 3.893. The 35-year-old hasn't logged a top 35 in 10 consecutive starts, so today's success qualifies as a surprise, but he's 56th in the FedExCup standings.
