World No. 282 Johnson Wagner spun a season-low 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the first round of the Travelers Championship to sit T2, one shy of leader Jordan Spieth.
This is the 37-year-old's 11th Travelers with one prior top 25, a T17 in 2011 where he was T2 thru 36 holes (65-63) fading after rounds of 71-69. He's making his 20th start of the season, entering 140th in the FedExCup standings, and this ties his highest position on the leaderboard after any round. The Virginia Tech product was T2 after Rounds 2 and 3 at the season-opening Safeway, eventually finishing a season-best T3, which is his lone top 10 of the season. He squared a lone bogey-5 at five, offset by seven birdies at Nos. 1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 10 and 18, five from between 10 and 20 feet, kicking off with a pitch-in 3 at the first from 69'3" away. The Texas native hit nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 4.750 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in the latter. His previous low this season was 65/R1 in Napa, though he did shoot 64 two times while teamed with Brian Harman at the Zurich. Jun 22 - 6:44 PM

Past champ and World No. 231 Johnson Wagner orchestrated a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the Shell Houston Open to reach halftime on 5-under 139, up 21 places on the live leaderboard to T9, 11 shots back of clubhouse leader Sung Kang, who shot 63.

This is the Amarillo, Texas, native's 11th consecutive SHO. Among three top 10s are a playoff loss in 2015 and his first (of three) TOUR titles in 2008. The newly minted 37-year-old (Mar. 23rd) opened with a four-birdie one-bogey 70 and chased with three against one in R2. Dating back to the P2 in 2015, that's nine of his last 10 in the red at the Golf Club of Houston. The Virginia Tech product squared the lone bogey at the par-4 10th, outpacing it with circles at Nos. 3, 7 and 12, each from inside of seven feet. He striped all 14 fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, gaining 2.903 strokes tee-to-green, though a -0.619 SG: Putting, 32 putts total, and 1.813 putts per GIR.

Johnson Wagner turns his attention to Riviera Country Club in preparation of this week's Genesis Open.

Wagner arrives with a T54 in his latest start, the Farmers Insurance Open. Prior to that he fought through five straight missed cuts after a stellar T3 (Safeway Open) to start the season. It's been a roller-coaster of a season, much like his track record at the Genesis Open. He is 3-for-5 here with a T22 and T24 in 2007 and 2012, respectively. Predicting the week's when Wagner will pop is always a difficult task for gamers but at least he's proven the top-25 upside here at Riviera Country Club.
Feb 14 - 2:14 PM

Johnson Wagner missed the cut in three of four starts during the fall schedule, but his podium finish to start the season still has him 42nd in the FedExCup race.

Wagner ended the 2015-16 season on a high note, collecting a pair of T5s over his last four starts. That momentum carried over into the new season, as he pieced together a T3 at the Safeway Open to kickoff the season. He had two weeks of rest before his next start and the momentum died there. He finished the fall portion of the schedule with three straight missed cuts. Perhaps the holiday break will provide a much-needed rest allowing him to re-group as he seeks his fourth TOUR title with the last win coming at the 2012 Sony Open in Hawaii.

Johnson Wagner settled for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 during the final round of the Safeway Open to finish the week in a tie for third place on 16-under 272.

Wagner opened the finale just one stroke off the leader Patton Kizzire but the air got sucked out of his balloon when he missed a 3-foot putt at the par-4 third hole to square an early bogey. His approach shots were finding the green, missing just two GIR, but the proximity and putting just wasn't there. Despite the lackluster finish to his week, this goes in the books as his first podium finish since the Shell Houston Open in April (lost in a playoff). Wagner also collects 133.75 FedExCup Points with this finish, giving him a nice early cushion as the 2016-17 season gets underway.

Johnson Wagner carved out a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the two-day third round of the Safeway Open to post 14-under 202, maintaining a T2 position on the leaderboard, one back of 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire.

The 36-year-old began the third round (Saturday) in a two-way T2 on 12-under, three in arrears to 36-hole leader Scott Piercy. He's getting progressively worse as the tourney slogs along, carding rounds of 65-67-70. After completing 15 holes in bogey-free 3-under on Saturday, the Texas native was one clear of Kizzire and Piercy on 15-under when play was suspended due to heavy rain. He returned to a 9'6" birdie try at the par-5 16th on Sunday morning but missed, and then ate a two-putt double bogey-6 on 17 before bouncing back with a 43-incher for birdie at the par-5 18th. Wagner's lone blemish in his last 37 holes is the aforementioned double, so he's been pretty steady as he chases his fourth TOUR title in his 264th career start, first since coming from two back in the final round to win the 2012 Sony Open.

Johnson Wagner smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the two-day second round of the Safeway Open to post 12-under 132, good for the 36-hole clubhouse lead and tying the low round thus far with J.J. Spaun and Brandon Hagy. UPDATE: With play completed, Wagner is in a two-way T2, three back of 36-hole leader Scott Piercy.

Spaun and Hagy posted their 67s on Friday, with Wagner returning on Saturday morning with 71 others who were stranded due to darkness. He was 5-under thru 14 holes when the horn sounded and came back to play his final four holes in all pars, failing to birdie either of the two par 5s (holes 16 and 18). The 36-year-old did circle five birdies on 15 greens in regulation, each from between seven and 15 feet, for 1.667 putts per GIR. He's currently pacing the field in the latter with a cumulative 1.500.

Johnson Wagner torched the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa with a 7-under-par 33-32=65 during round one of the Safeway Open, grabbing a very early clubhouse lead with the morning wave still in progress.

Wagner opened on the back nine and got the scoring started early with a 26'5" birdie splash on the par-4 10th. His lone blemish of the opening nine came at the par-4 13th where he found a greenside bunker on approach, leading to a bogey. He offset that bogey with four more circles to make the turn at 4-under 32. Coming home, he added five more birdies and two bogeys, reaching 10 birdies in total. Overall, today's effort was the result of a hot putter as he rolled in five putts from outside 12 feet, three of them from outside 20 feet, gaining 3.074 strokes putting on the day as he walked off the course. Wagner finished T48 in his Silverado debut last year, posting nothing better than a 2-under 70 on the way. He'll need to keep the putter warm if he wants to keep his name in the mix as the week progresses.

Johnson Wagner twirled a course-record-tying 7-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of The Barclays to reach 1-under 283, up 39 places on the live leaderboard to T33 and projecting to climb 16 spots to 76th in the FedExCup standings.

The fact that it took a 7-under effort in the finale to get Wagner back to red numbers for the week reflects how poor his first three rounds were. He opened his seventh appearance in 74-69-76 to begin the final frame on 6-over (T72). The Virginia Tech product, whose club affiliation is Hudson National GC (Croton, New York), circled eight birdies against a lone bogey, same as Sung Kang, who matched 64 three groups later. For the week, Wagner carded 16 birdies against 13 bogeys and a double. His and Kang's 64s matched the course record at Bethpage State Park's Black Course, shot by three players, most recently in R1 at the 2012 Barclays by Padraig Harrington.

Johnson Wagner carved out a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to wrap his eighth appearance on 14-under 266, up three places to T7 with play winding down. UPDATE: With play completed, Wagner finished T5, his second straight top-5 finish (T5, John Deere).

The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident records his first top 10 in Greensboro, displacing a previous-best T20 on debut in 2007. He began the final round in a four-way T10 on 11-under, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Si Woo Kim. The 36-year-old carded a lone par breaker on his first half, but it went for eagle-2 at the sixth, holing-out from 149 yards away. He book-ended bogey-5s on 10 and 18, sandwiching birdies on Nos. 12 (13'3"), 13 and 15. Wagner notches his third top 10 of the season in 24 starts and second straight (T5, John Deere). He's projected to climb 12 spots to 97th in the FedExCup standings.

Johnson Wagner tossed up a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach the three-quarter mark on 11-under 199, up three places to T8 with play still in progres.

The 36-year-old arrived off a season-best T5 at last week's John Deere which bumped him from 125th in the FedExCup standings to 109th. He's currently up another 11 spots to 98th after a six-birdie one-bogey showing. The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident is making his eighth appearance in Greensboro and kicked off in 66-68 to sit T11 to begin the third round. He bogeyed the par-4 first (for the third straight lap), but played his final 17 holes in blemish-free 6-under, circling birdies on Nos. 2 (14'6"), 5, 9, 10, 14 and 18. Wagner also drained a pair of six-foot par saves on 15 and 16, contributing to 2.435 in SG: Putting.

Johnson Wagner conjured up a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in today's final round of the John Deere Classic to conclude his seventh appearance on 15-under 269, down one place into a three-way T5, seven adrift of champion Ryan Moore.

The 36-year-old is clearly comfortable at TPC Deere Run, logging his third straight top 10 in as many years and second straight T5. He departs with his second top 10 of the season in 23 starts, first since T8 at the OHL Classic back in November, and is projected to climb 16 places to 109th in the FedExCup standings. The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident is in this week's published field at the Wyndham in Greensboro. He began R4 in solo fourth on 14-under, four back of Moore, and landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting a mediocre 1.857 putts per GIR and a disappointing -1.105 SG: Putting. Wagner circled three birdies, two from inside of 37 inches, against a 3-putt bogey-4 at the eighth and a bogey-4 at 16 after hitting his tee ball OB.

With lift, clean and place in effect, Johnson Wagner crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the John Deere Classic to reach 14-under 199, four in arrears to 54-hole leader Ryan Moore.

The 36-year-old began the third frame in a three-way T4 on 10-under after opening in 68-64, two shy of Moore and co-leader Wesley Bryan, and ended in solo fourth. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he squared Nos. 1, 3 (3-putt from 35'8") and a one-putt bogey from 11'4" at 12, but overshadowed them with birdies on holes 6, 7, 14, 17 and 18, and his biggest bang of the round, a 53-footer for eagle-3 at the second. Wagner posted week-lows in fairways, nine (of 14), and greens in regulation with 14, but battled to the end with back-to-back birdies to finish, including a 37-footer from off the green (using the flat stick) for a walk-off 3. The Texas native played 36 holes on Saturday as the tourney fought to get back on schedule.

With preferred lies in effect, Johnson Wagner painted a week-tying-low bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the two-day second round of the John Deere Classic to reach 10-under 132, up 19 places on the live leaderboard to T5, two back of 36-hole co-leaders Wesley Bryan and Ryan Moore.

The 36-year-old is in position for his third straight top 10 at TPC Deere Run after T7 in 2014 and T5 last year. He had to play all 18 holes of his second frame on Saturday, one of 39 who didn't hit a single shot on Friday. The Virginia Tech product kicked off with a four-birdie one-bogey 68 on 12 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation. He peppered 13 (of 14) fairways and 16 GIR again, currently T1 in the latter at 88.89 percent. The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident circled four (of seven) from inside of seven feet, adding a 23-footer for birdie-2 at the 12th (his third hole) and a 29'5" birdie on the par-4 13th.

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.
