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. Feb 25 - 12:05 PM

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.

Brendon de Jonge has decided against a spot in this week's Barracuda Championship.

de Jonge teased once again at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club last week. He opened with a pair of red numbers before backing up for a third-round 73 en route to a T59. It's his seventh consecutive result outside a top 35. The good news is that he's 43rd in the FedExCup standings and qualified for the PGA Championship yesterday by virtue of sitting 68th in the special money list from which the top 70 automatically gain entry into the field at Whistling Straits next week. NOTE: Tim Herron, Joe Durant, Marc Turnesa and Skip Kendall also withdrew as alternates. Herron and Turnesa are scheduled to compete in the Web.com Tour's Digital Ally Open. Durant and Kendall are registered at the Shaw Charity Classic on the Champions Tour.

Brendon de Jonge fashioned a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-35=66 for his second round of the RBC Canadian Open.

It's been three months since the big fella recorded a top 20. He's still 39th in the FedExCup standings but hasn't given gamers much reason to invest of late. Even yesterday's lid-lifter at Glen Abbey caused consternation as he all but wiped away an eagle and three birdies -- all of those par breakers on the par 5s, by the way -- with two bogeys and a double en route to 1-under 71. Today, he split only six (of 14) fairways but hit 14 greens and circled another eagle and four birdies. His longest conversion of the round taped off at 16 feet for birdie at the par-4 17th. At 7-under 137, de Jonge is seven strokes off the pace of 36-hole clubhouse leader Chad Campbell.

Brendon de Jonge returns to a favorable venue at this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The Zimbabwean enjoys The Old White TPC, collecting a pair of top 5s in his first two trips, adding three more paychecks since. His current form is slightly concerning, missing the cut in three of his last five starts. As a North Carolina resident and Virginia Tech alum, he's very familiar with golf in this area of the country. Gamers should target de Jonge in all formats this week.

Brendon de Jonge twirled a 6-under-par 31-32=63 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship for a 54-hole tally of 9-under 199, good for the early clubhouse lead.

de Jonge began the day T40 and six shots adrift of the 36-hole lead. The 34-year-old took advantage of lift, clean and place conditions (on closely-mown areas) to bag seven birdies against one bogey. de Jonge opened with four straight pars before reeling off four consecutive birdies on Nos. 5-8 to turn in 4-under 31. He added par breakers on the par-4 11th, the par-3 17th, and the 108-yard, par-3 14th, which was converted from a par 4 to a par 3 for the second consecutive round due to course conditions. The Zimbabwean would square his lone bogey at the last after his tee ball found the water.

Brendon de Jonge arrives at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship ranked 30th in the FedExCup standings.

de Jonge is 14-for-18 on his 2014-15 campaign with seven top 25s, including three top 10s. His signature moments on the season were a P2 at the McGladrey Classic back in October and a T5 at the Shell Houston Open. Since the SHO however, he's been heading south, going T18-T22-T63 and missed cut in his last start at the Wells Fargo. He co-lead the Zurich Classic after a first-round 8-under-par 64, but faded to a T22-finish. de Jonge is 2-for-4 at the BNC with his T29 in last year's edition his best showing.

First-round co-leader Brendon de Jonge chased his opening 64 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round to post 10-under 134 at the break, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

So much for the hope that he'd keep it floored going our early today. Like Thursday, de Jonge landed 15 greens in regulation at TPC Louisiana in the second round, but he picked off only three birdies, all from inside seven feet. He missed a pair of tries for birdies from inside 10 feet and squared a bogey at the par-4 fourth. All gamers know that this is the easy part for the non-winner in 224 previous PGA TOUR starts. And while he lost in a playoff at The McGladrey Classic in the fall, de Jonge's reputation is that of a guy that fades at some point on the weekend, usually on Sunday. The numbers support both sides of the argument, but when he's in contention, we all agree to hold our collective breath.
