Johnson Wagner enjoyed a 5-under-par 32-33=65 at Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course in today's opening round of The RSM Classic.
He couldn't miss today. After striping 10 (of 14) fairways and manufacturing 16 scoring opportunities on the host course, Wagner scattered six birdies, five of which disappearing from outside 11 feet. His most impressive ran 25'9" at the par-4 fourth hole and 31'8" at the par-3 17th. He also connected from 13'8" for par at the par-3 12th. Alas, Wagner settled for a walk-off bogey-5 at 18 to finish one stroke adrift of the clubhouse lead. However, by going perfect on all 16 looks inside 13 feet, he led the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 5.037 at last check. Only Seaside is lasered this week, so he essentially leads 78 golfers in the stat. The other half of the field will swap spots for the second round. Wagner gets the par-72 Plantation Course on Friday. Nov 19 - 2:22 PM

Johnson Wagner patched together an even-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to wrap his fifth appearance at 12-under 272, good for a two-way tie for eighth place.

After chasing his 2011 OHL win with T30-MC-T16, Wagner returned to his top-10 ways in Playa del Carmen. In the finale that spanned two days, he exchanged three birdies with three bogeys with the third and last par breaker coming on the 71st hole of competition to move him inside the top 10. The 35-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation in the Sunday/Monday finish, concluding the week T1 in the latter category at an 80.56 percent clip (58/72). The flat stick didn't join the party enough as he posted a 1.810 mark in putts per GIR, T68 for the week in that stat. However, Wagner's first three in 2015-16 show T48-T15-T8 so he's trending.

Johnson Wagner tossed up a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to post 12-under 201, good for solo seventh after 54 holes and four adrift of leader Derek Fathauer.

After finishing 121st and 150th in the FedExCup standings the previous two seasons, Wagner bounced-back with an 87th-place finish last season. He logged three top 10s on 22 starts, including a season-best P2 at the Shell Houston Open. Wagner was T3 thru 54 holes at the John Deere, eventually finishing T5, and went back-to-back with a T10 at the Barbasol. It was his first back-to-back top 10s since the 2012 season where won the Sony Open and chased with T2 at the Humana. The 2011 OHL champ (in a playoff), began this season with T48 ( Open) and T15 last week at the SFC where he shot 69 for four consecutive rounds. This week, he's opened with 67-67-67, including today's five-birdie against one-bogey effort. Inclusive of the, he's now put 12 straight in the sub-par category dating back to a final-round 67 at the Deutsche Bank last season.

Johnson Wagner tacked on another 4-under-par 67 in today's second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Wagner submitted respective nines of 35 and 32 today, but just as he performed in the opener, he scattered five birdies to offset a lone bogey. He hit 14 greens in regulation in both rounds. At 8-under 134, he's four strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. The 2011 champ is now under par in each of his last six rounds at El Camaleón. That may seem pedestrian on a relatively easy track, but Wagner's career arc has been anything but.

Johnson Wagner tossed up a 4-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The 2011 champ hasn't missed an edition since his title, and why would he? Today's production speaks to how much he enjoys El Camaleón. Wagner landed 14 greens in regulation and poured in five birdies, easily enough to hide a lone bogey-5 at the 18th hole to conclude his opening set. He signed his card slotted just two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse quad-leaders.

The second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship was suspended by lightning at 4:49 p.m. CT and will not resume until 7:30 a.m. on Saturday.

That's the plan, at least. More inclement weather is expected throughout Saturday before the clearing begins. Twenty-two golfers from the late-early draw at the Country Club of Jackson have completed 36 holes. Sixty-two were stranded when the horn sounded, including 20 from the early-late who were able to get out there. Johnson Wagner is one of nine golfers who have just one hole to play before reaching the midpoint. He's 6-under-par through 35 holes. The 35-year-old will be on the tee at the par-4 ninth when the tournament restarts.

The final round of the Open in Napa, California, was suspended at 8:50 a.m PT due to fog. UPDATE: Play resumed at 9:12 a.m., resulting in a 22-minute delay. Players who had not teed off will add 20 minutes to their originally scheduled tee time.

The length of fog delays are difficult to predict, particularly in wine country, so this could be a quick break for the 15 golfers (of 73 who made the 54-hole cut) who were on the course when the horn sounded, or it may be time for brunch. Johnson Wagner is one of the 15 whose final round was underway, and he's 2-under thru his first five holes to move to 5-under total for the tournament. After opening with three pars, the 35-year-old recorded back-to-back birdies on Nos. 4 and 5 to move up 17 spots in the early going.

Johnson Wagner readies for his fourth look at TPC Boston at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Wagner continued his late-season run of form last week at the Barclays, finishing T45 on the week. It was his fifth top 50 over his last seven starts. The result boosted him over the FedExCup bubble-line from 101st to 92nd in the standings. His position coincides very well with his current strokes-gained rank of 89th on the season. The three-time PGA TOUR winner remains a lively sleeper as long as he continues to crack the playing field.

Johnson Wagner returns for a second look at Plainfield Country Club during this week's Barclays.

Wagner pieced together a late-season rally, earning 40% of his FedExCup points during a four-tournament stretch starting at the Greenbrier Classic. He's cooled off since with two straight missed cut, and currently sits at 101st on the FedExCup leaderboard. Gamers will be taking on a heavy burden of risk if they invest in Wagner and his 10-for-21 season-long record. He missed the cut during his 2011 walkabout at Plainfield Country Club.

Johnson Wagner settled for an even-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 11-under 205, four swings back of 54-hole leader David Hearn.

Wagner began Saturday's play at 11-under (T3) and just three off the pace. Playing in the penultimate pairing with Hearn, he split nine (of 14) fairways and after hitting 15 greens in regulation in rounds one and two, managed a paltry eight GIR on Saturday's loop. Despite finding the surface just 44.44 percent of the time, Wagner minimized the damage going 7-for-10 in scrambles, and registering 1.154 in strokes gained: putting. In total, Wagner canceled out three bogeys with three birdies and dropped three places on the leaderboard to T6. Today's 72 broke a streak of 14 straight rounds in the 60s on TOUR. The 35-year-old has cashed only once (T34/2014) in six prior Canadian Open's, but has posted two of his three top 10s on the season (18 events) in his last two starts. His season-best is T2 at the Shell Houston Open.
Jul 25 - 9:02 PM

Johnson Wagner added a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the midpoint in 11-under 133.

Of course he did! It's his 14th straight sub-par score and it was a beauty. He missed only three greens in regulation and poured in four birdies, including a pair from just outside 11 feet at Nos. 2 and 3. Wagner saved his best for last, lacing his second to just inside four feet at the par-5 18th for an easy eagle. He started the week ranked T112 in par-5 scoring but has played the quartet of par 5s at Glen Abbey in bogey-free 7-under. Wagner sits just three swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Jul 24 - 1:27 PM

Johnson Wagner trotted around Glen Abbey Golf Club in 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's opening round of the RBC Canadian Open.

This is Wagner's 13th consecutive red number going back to a T32 at The Greenbrier Classic. He chased that with a T5 at the John Deere Classic and T10 at last week's Barbasol, so the 35-year-old has obviously found a groove he likes. And he waste no time proving it with birdies on his first four holes, including a pair from just outside 11 feet at Nos. 10 and 12. Wagner saved his best for last when he connected from 47'9" for a birdie-3 at the fifth hole and the sixth of six birdies on the round. His only miscue occurred on the par-4 sixth where he squared a bogey. He went on to sign his card seated three strokes off Emiliano Grillo's overnight lead.

Johnson Wagner carded a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the inaugural Barbasol Championship to post 12-under 272, good for a six-way tie for 10th place.

Wagner began the day at 10-under (T8) and three shots adrift. On his round, he landed eight (of 14) fairways and just 11 greens in regulation, totaling 28 putts. He played his outward half in 1-over, cancelling out two birdies at Nos. 6 and 7 with three bogeys, but played his last nine in bogey-free 3-under. A 12'11" par putt at the last brought out the fist pump and secured his third top 10 of the season on 18 starts. The 35-year-old is in the published field at next week's RBC Canadian Open and currently sits 98th in the FedExCup standings.
Jul 20 - 1:04 AM

Johnson Wagner tossed up a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's third round of the Barbasol Championship and at 10-under 203, sits three strokes off the pace of 54-hole co-leaders Scott Piercy and Ricky Barnes.

Wagner began Saturday's play at 5-under (T20) and four shots adrift. On his round, he split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation converting on six, for 1.643 putts per GIR. His set featured three birdie rolls in excess of 13 feet, including from 21'11" on the par-3 sixth for his longest conversion of the day. After opening with four consecutive pars, Wagner would get things going with a 2-putt birdie on the par-5 fifth, although he missed his eagle try from just over nine feet. His third circle at the par-3 eighth was nearly an ace, coming to rest just nine inches from the cup. He gave one back at the ninth however, missing from 5'9" for par. He also missed from inside eight feet on the 11th for birdie but penciled circles on 14 and 15 from outside 13 feet. The 35-year-old added a birdie at the last from 6'1" to complete his scoring. Wagner is chasing his fourth win on the PGA TOUR in 232 career starts, the last coming at the 2012 Sony Open.
Jul 18 - 9:27 PM

Johnson Wagner carved out a 4-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the John Deere Classic for a 72-hole aggregate of 18-under 266, two swings shy of eventual champion Jordan Spieth.

Wagner began his final frame at 14-under (T3) and three shots back of 54-hole leader Spieth. Looking for his first win since the 2012 Sony Open, the 35-year-old opened birdie-eagle-par-birdie for 4-under thru his first four holes. That would be it for par breakers until he circled birdie at the par-5 17th, but only after missing his eagle try from 10 feet one inch. He did drain a nifty 15-footer at the last for par to secure a three-way tie for fifth place, two places better than his previous-best of T7 in last year's Deere. It's his second top 10 on the season (17 starts) joining a P2 at the Shell Houston Open.
