Johnson Wagner smoothed a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the weather-delayed second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach the halfway point on 3-under 137, up 30 spots to T15 with play still in progress.
In six previous appearances, the Texas native had missed five cuts, including his last four, with his only cash a T46 in 2008. He kicked off with an even-par 70, erasing six birdies with three bogeys and a triple bogey-7 at the 18th (his ninth hole), but did circle three of the six birdies over his final five holes. The 36-year-old rode that late momentum into his second frame -- which began 5.5 hours late -- circling three on 14 greens in regulation with a long of 16'10" at the par-3 eighth. His longest putt of the round however, was a 17'4" par-saver at the par-4 fifth and later added a 12-footer at the 12th to complete a sand-save. May 27 - 7:46 PM

First-round tri-leader Johnson Wagner rallied for an even-par 38-32=70 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 7-under 133.

The Amarillo, Texas native is down 10 spots on the live leaderboard to T11, but it could've been worse. He went out in a birdie-less 3-over first half, but came home in bogey-free 3-under. The 36-year-old squared Nos. 2 and 3 on failed scrambles and 3-putted the fifth from 30'5". He birdied 11, 14 and 16 with a 15'5" roll on the par-4 11th for his longest conversion of the round. Wagner hit 15 greens in regulation but mustered a pedestrian 1.933 putts per GIR after posting 1.538 in round one.

Round one of the AT&T Byron Nelson has been suspended due to darkness (8:18 p.m. CT), with play set to resume tomorrow morning at 7:15 a.m. Johnson Wagner was one of the last to finish his round, posting a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-31=63 to share a piece of the early clubhouse lead.

Due to a rain delay this morning, 30 golfers were unable to finish their opening 18 holes and have been called off the course. They will return tomorrow morning to close out the first round. Johnson Wagner was almost one of them as he rolled in a 5'5" par putt just as play was called for the day. Prior to that, he pieced together one of the best putting rounds all season. Wagner splashed in eight putts from outside nine feet, seven of them from outside 18 feet, and three of those coming from outside 30 feet. He walked off the course gaining 4.917 strokes with the flat stick. There is surely regression on the way, but this round gives him a nice cushion to start his week.

Johnson Wagner kicked off his week at the RBC Heritage by signing a 3-under-par 32-36=68 while battling windy conditions at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Wagner fired out of the gates with four birdies in his opening nine, including a 20'6" splash on the par-4 third hole. He added one more coming in, but squared a pair of bogeys, as well. Wagner landed 12 greens in regulation on the day, but his putter let him down. Overall, he holed just two putts from outside five feet. Despite the lack of putting, he was one of just eight golfers in the A.M. wave to sign for 3-under or better.

Johnson Wagner kicked off his week at the Shell Houston Open with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-35=66 to find himself in the mix again at Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course.

After losing in a playoff here last year, Wagner was excited to get back here and break out of his recent slump. The 2008 SHO champion arrived with six straight missed cuts, but you couldn't tell by today's round. The highlight of his round came on the par-5 eighth hole where he landed his 289-yard approach to just 11'5", splashing it home for an eagle. He landed 15 greens in regulation on the day. Gamers that leaned heavily on course history are enjoying the start by Wagner.

Johnson Wagner hoisted the trophy at the 2008 Shell Houston Open and returns this week for another crack at the Golf Club of Houston.

Wagner secured his first PGA TOUR victory at this venue, so it always means a lot to return here. He was a part of the playoff here last year, so he's not a one-year wonder at the GC of Houston. Wagner has missed the cut in his last six starts entering the week, but his history at this track bodes well for the Texas native.
Mar 29 - 10:24 AM

In Johnson Wagner's previous three seasons on the PGA TOUR, he's missed 38 cuts and made 32.

The Amarillo, Texas, native and Charlotte, North Carolina, resident, is 4-for-4 to open 2015-16 with all 16 rounds at par-or-better, 13 in the sub-par category. He's a cumulative 36-under-par in his four cashes with two top-15 finishes, including a T15 at the Sanderson Farms where he shot quad-69s, and a T8 at the OHL Classic on rounds of 67-67-67-71. The 35-year-old's last of three TOUR wins in 241 career starts came at the 2012 Sony Open.

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.

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.
