Johnson Wagner cruised to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his third round of the Puerto Rico Open and posted 3-under 213, good for early possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.
Scoring is easier today than the first two rounds, so anyone seeking to make a move today will need to take it deep like the 34-year-old. He hit 16 greens in regulation and circled six birdies at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today. Wagner's only blemish on the scorecard was a bogey-4 at the sixth hole. While he'll be chasing his fourth PGA TOUR title on Sunday, the secondary objective is to finish inside the top 10 for an exemption into next week's Valspar Championship. Wagner has conditional status this season. The PRO is just his sixth start of 2014-15. Mar 7 - 11:12 AM

Johnson Wagner enters this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am ranked 162nd on the FedExCup leaderboard.

Wagner has had a rough go of things at Pebble Beach, finishing inside the top 70 on just one occasion in six tries. His strokes gained:putting and strokes gained:tee-to-green are both outside the top 165 through four starts of the new season. Playing with conditional status, Wagner will be extra motivated to earn a high finish but his game just isn't there right now.

Johnson Wagner was the 2011 champion at the Sony Open and returns to Waialae Country Club this week.

If history is any indicator, his victory was a case of catching lightening in a bottle. If you toss out that win, he has missed five cuts to go with a T34 way back in 2007. The biggest reason for optimism is his T16 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in his last start.
Jan 14 - 3:58 PM

Johnson Wagner tied for 16th in his most recent start at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Wagner possesses only conditional status on the PGA TOUR this season. He finished 150th in the FedExCup standings last season, but his recent play offers hope for a solid 2014-15 season when given opportunities to compete. He made his last five cuts of 2013-14, including three top-30 finishes with one of those a T7 at the John Deere Classic. The Virginia Tech product made two of his three cuts in the new season, climaxing with the aforementioned T16 at Mayakoba. His biggest challenging will likely be earning enough tee times to finish this season inside the top 125.

Johnson Wagner walks into Sea Island Resort’s Seaside Course for this week's McGladrey Classic.

Wagner is making his 2014-15 season debut this week with some strong momentum still on his side from last year. It's been a disappointing two years, but finishes inside the top 40 in each of his last five PGA TOUR events is a good sign of things to come. After failing to regain fully-exempt status via the Tour Finals, Wagner will need to make the most of each start he can get. With a 2-for-3 record at Seaside paired with motivation to regain status, Wagner is a good investment for salary-cap gamers just looking for a cut made.

Johnson Wagner settled for an even-par 34-36-70 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to end the week in a tie for 38th at 7-under 273.

The big win for the Virginia Tech Hokie was moving from 157th to 150th in the FedExCup standings. While that doesn't get him into the FEC Playoffs or secure him full status for 2014-15, it does allow him conditional status for next season by ending the year in the 126-150 range. Otherwise, he would have had just Past Champion status pending the Tour Finals.

Johnson Wagner twirled a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

If you've played fantasy golf for years, you know that Wagner always seems to paint himself into a corner before finding a way out. If there's such a thing as thriving on the pressure, he belongs in that category. Today at Sedgefield, he hit 15 greens in regulation and lassoed an eagle from inside nine feet at the par-5 fifth hole to complement four birdies. That quartet included a roll from 32'9" at the par-4 sixth and 26 feet at the par-4 17th. He also squared two bogeys, including a three-jack from just outside 36 feet at the par-4 fourth, but it was karma in that he saved par from 10'2" at the par-3 third. At 157th in the FedExCup standings and not yet exempt for 2014-15, Wagner has nothing to lose if he wants to fire at flag sticks all week long in Greensboro.

Johnson Wagner has collected 18 points through 36 bogey-free holes at the Barracuda Championship.

He opened with a 5-under-par 31-36=67, and then chased it with a 4-under 34-34=68 today. Wagner has missed only six greens in regulation and circled nine birdies. Currently 158th in the FedExCup standings and 161st in earnings, the 34-year-old is such a frustrating fantasy own because he seems to play well only when his back is against the wall. While that in and of itself furnishes a trend, it's not exactly what gamers prefer when leaning on potential firepower. Wagner sits eight points adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead in Reno.

Johnson Wagner captured his first top-10 finish of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with a final-round 3-under-par 34-34=68.

It's been a struggle for Wagner, as he entered this week a distant 172nd in the FedExCup standings. His last lap around TPC Deere Run featured five birdies and a double bogey, with the rest dropping for par. A 13-footer at the par-5 second and a 24'11" birdie at the par-4 ninth were the obvious highlights, but his 16 GIR may have been equally impressive. He will try and ride this momentum the rest of the way in hopes of cracking the top 125 in the FEC standings or the PGA TOUR money list to secure his full status for next season.

Johnson Wagner settled for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the John Deere Classic and his 13-under 200 has him inside the top 10.

Wagner is under the gun in terms of trying to secure his full status on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR, ranked 172nd in the FedExCup standings. He was cruising along nicely with two birdies and an eagle, all on par 5s, on his first 17 holes before a messy double bogey after finding the water with his second shot on the par-4 18th.

Johnson Wagner backed up his opening 66 at the John Deere Classic with a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round to post 11-under 131 and reach the midpoint just one stroke off the 36-hole co-leaders.

For the second straight day, Wagned limited the negative to a lone bogey, this time at the difficult par-4 ninth where he concluded his trot around TPC Deere Run. Meanwhile, he converted five birdies, the longest from 19'8" at the par-3 12th, and recorded his second eagle of the week at the par-5 second. He also knocked in a par save from 13'11" at 4. He needs a huge week, but even if he succeeds, he's never exhibited any consistency, so don't unwittingly hop aboard if it happens.

Johnson Wagner surprised with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

Wagner is coming to the end of his two-year exemption for winning the 2012 Sony Open in Hawaii. He's 172nd in FedExCup points with just seven paydays on the season, nothing better than a T25 at the West Coast track meet otherwise known as the Humana Challenge. Perhaps then we shouldn't be shocked by today's score. He missed only one green in regulation and opened par-eagle, the par breaker from just inside two feet at the par-5 second hole. Wagner added four birdies, including rolls of 10'10" and 47'7" at Nos. 9 and 11, respectively. His only blemish was a three-putt bogey from just outside 51 feet at the par-3 seventh. He signed his card sitting three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Johnson Wagner turns his attention to TPC River Highlands for this week's Travelers Championship.

Wagner enters the week with course history on his side, with cuts made in five of his seven attempts at the Travelers. He's signed for red numbers in 13 of his last 22 rounds along the way. Unfortunately, his form is completely lost right now, with just two top-50 finishes in his last 19 events. Let the buyer beware for any gamers looking to invest in the three-time PGA TOUR winner.

Johnson Wagner will make his sixth appearance at the HP Byron Nelson Championship later this week.

Wagner is just 2-for-5 at TPC Four Seasons, but returned top-30 finishes both times he played the weekend. Overall, he is 13 for his last 39, a 33 percent clip of cuts made. That kind of inconsistency and lack of form leaves him far off the radar for most gamers.
Tue, May 13, 2014 11:26:00 AM

Johnson Wagner turns his attention towards the RBC Heritage, having made just three of 12 cuts in 2013-14.

Wagner showed some signs of life recently with a T26 at the Valero Texas Open, but similar bright spots of late have served as nothing more than an oasis in an endless desert. Though he did tie for 18th here last year, his other three starts resulted in two missed cuts and a T75. It would be a rather large leap of faith to plug him into most fantasy formats this week.
