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. Oct 16 - 9:34 PM

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.
Aug 13 - 1:25 PM

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.
