World No. 376 Ryan Blaum played his final five holes in 6-under-par en route to a 5-under 35-30=65 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to conclude his second appearance (T74/MDF, 2017) on 13-under 267, up 11 places to a season-best T10.
This was the 34-year-old's second cash of the season in six starts and second top 25, joining T20 at the Shriners. After opening in 66-68-68, he began T21 on 8-under, two short of the overnight top 10. The Duke alum found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.427 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.761 around-the-green. He was 1-over thru 13 holes, overshadowing circles at Nos. 3 and 9 with three bogey-5s at 1, 6 (3-putt from 17'10") and 13, before a birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle finish. The Floridian's split include two 18-footers and a 16-footer from the fringe at 16. He recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and -0.351 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. This is Blaum's third career top 10 in 44 events, first since a career-best T6 at the 2017 Barbasol last July. Jan 14 - 10:36 PM

Ryan Blaum navigated Waialae Country Club without any blemishes, posting a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-34=66 during round one of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Making his second straight appearance at this event, Blaum is looking to improve upon his debut where he finished T74. It's looking good so far as he peppered all 18 greens in regulation. His putter didn't help him close the door as he missed five birdie putts in the 10-to-16 foot range. On the bright side, he did sink a 31'10" birdie bomb at the par-3 seventh hole to make up for some of those misses. If Blaum keeps landing greens at a high clip, his putter should come around.

Ryan Blaum swallowed a 6-over-par 36-41=77 during round one of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba before withdrawing due to illness. UPDATE: Blaum returned to action Nov. 16th at The RSM Classic and missed the cut after rounds of even-par 70-72=142.

Blaum was making his third straight appearance at this event with a T29 in his debut and a T15 last year. It appears the layout fits his game but his body wasn't up to the task this week. Blaum cited a virus for his WD after splitting just six (of 14) fairways and finding eight greens in regulation. The 34-year-old finished T20 last week in Las Vegas. Gamers should feel comfortable jumping back on the train whenever he chooses to tee it up next. This doesn't appear to be a long-term problem.

Ryan Blaum breezed through TPC Summerlin en route to a 5-under-par 34-32=66 during the opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, joining J.J. Spaun and John Huh as early pacesetters.

The Duke Blue Devil finished T31 here last year in his Shriners debut. All four rounds were signed in red numbers and he's back this week for seconds. Today he circled seven birdies to post his best round at TPC Summerlin yet. It was a balanced attack as he gained 2.166 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.456 more strokes with the putter. Blaum missed just one green in regulation today and splashed in five putts from outside nine feet. Blaum arrived with five straight finishes outside the top 50 but he's showing no signs of that poor form so far.

Duke University alum Ryan Blaum heads back to North Carolina for a third appearance at this week's Wyndham Championship.

Blaum has pegged it at this event twice, the first coming at Forest Oaks Country Club in 2007 (sponsor's invite). He would finish solo 82nd that week. Two years later he open qualified into the event, but then went on to miss the cut. This time around he arrives on merit and sits at 103rd in the FedExCup standings. With a spot in the Playoffs already locked up, Blaum should be able to play stress-free this week near his old stomping grounds.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 318 Ryan Blaum orchestrated a season- and career-tying-low 7-under-par 29-35=64 in the final round of the Barbasol Championship for a 72-hole tally of 18-under 266, up eight places to a career-best T6, three short of champion Grayson Murray.

This was the 33-year-old's 35th career TOUR start and second top 10, eclipsing a previous-best T7 two starts ago at the Greenbrier. It was his sixth top 25 of the season in 26 starts and second top 10. After opening in 69-67-66, the Duke alum began T14 on 11-under, two shy of the overnight top 10. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 4.239 SG: Total and 1.533 putts per GIR, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 1.585. The Floridian smothered a lone bogey-5 at 15 with seven conventional birdies at Nos. 1, 2, (from 19'8"), 5, 7, 8, 11 and 16, adding a hole-out birdie-3 at 4 from a greenside bunker 34'3" away.

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 359 Ryan Blaum painted a career-low bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to wrap his second appearance (MC/2013) on 10-under 270, up 15 spots on the live leaderboard to T5 and matching the low round of the day with three others. UPDATE: With play completed, Blaum finished a career-best T7.

This was the 33-year-old's 103rd career round and eclipses a previous-best 65, which he shot two times, most recently at the 2017 Honda/R3. It was his 33rd career start and first top 10, supplanting a previous-best T11 at the 2017 Sanderson Farms. The Duke alum was making his 24th start of the season and posts a fifth top 25, first since T24 at the DEAN & DELUCA four starts ago. After kicking off in 68-67-71, he began T20 on 4-under, four shy of the overnight top 10. The Floridian landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.272 strokes around-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 5.666. He carded five conventional birdies, highlighted by a 48-footer at the 14th, adding a pitch-in 3 at the first from 48'9" away. Blaum posted 1.583 putts per GIR and 2.212 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in SGP at 8.035.

Ryan Blaum threw his name into the mix early at the Shell Houston Open, piecing together a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during his first navigation of the Golf Club of Houston.

The PGA TOUR rookie missed only three fairways today but parlayed that into just 12 greens in regulation, keeping his short game busy. He did a good job of keeping his round together, though, as his lone bogey came at the par-4 fifth hole where he found a greenside bunker. The highlight of the round came at the par-3 seventh hole. It was here that Blaum nearly jarred his tee ball, tapping in for birdie from just six inches. The Tour grad is no stranger to fast starts as he's positioned himself inside the top 20 after Round 1 in each of his last three starts, with this very likely being the fourth in a row.

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 381 Ryan Blaum spun a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of The Honda Classic to reach 5-under 205, up 44 spots to T11 with play still in progress.

Playing his 62nd career round, the 33-year-old equals a career low, shot in R2 of the 2016 OHL Classic en route to T29. He chased an opening 67 this week with an up-and-down 73 to make the cut on the number. The Floridian squared a lone bogey-5 at the second, missing a par-saver from 4'1", but bounced back with eagle-3 at 3 (from 7'10") and birdie at the par-4 fourth (11'6"). He saved par from 14'8" at the sixth leading to a kick-in 2 at the par-3 seventh from 25 inches. The Duke alum dropped in another par-saver at 10 (10'6") before circling another 2 at the 15th, from a mere 12 inches and wrapping up with an up-and-down 4 at the par-5 18th.

Ryan Blaum is off to another fast start after firing a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in round one of The Honda Classic, finding an early spot inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.

The PGA TOUR rookie is making his tournament debut this week, but is no stranger to quick starts. In 10 starts this season, he's positioned himself inside the top 25 after day one in five of those. That number will increase to 6-of-11 after today's five-birdie, two-bogey, effort. Putting was the key weapon, as he splashed home three putts from outside 11 feet, gaining 3.347 strokes putting on the field at the time of his round's completion. The Coral Gables, Florida, resident is off to a good start in his first Florida event on the PGA TOUR.

Ryan Blaum ranks 69th in the FedExCup race ahead of his debut at this week's Genesis Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie is flashing some consistency early in the season but Riviera Country Club will pose a much tougher test than the courses he's played so far. Whether or not he'll but up to the task is yet to be seen, but he does rank 44th in strokes gained around-the-green which could come in handy with the small greens this week. Blaum will be making his 19th career start this week and is still searching for his first top 10 on the main stage.

Ryan Blaum pieced together a 6-under-par 32-34=66 while facing La Quinta Country Club in round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge, finding himself two off the early pacesetter Dominic Bozzelli.

The PGA TOUR rookie took care of business on the par 5s today, circling birdies on all four like you need to do around here. He needed just 24 putts to make his way around La Quinta CC. A hole out birdie from the sand certainly helped in that regard. (par -4 16th). Blaum is making his 16th career start this week, but just his seventh as a card-carrying member. The 33-year-old is still searching for his first top 10 on TOUR.

PGA TOUR rookie Ryan Blaum crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to finish up his second appearance on 12-under 276, up 10 to T12 with play still in progress. UPDATE: Blaum finished T11 (68-70-70-68).

The recently anointed 33-year-old (Oct. 16th) was T26 back in 2013 (Annandale GC) but this was his first start as a member. Interestingly enough, he also opened the 2016-17 campaign with a T26 (69-68-71-71) in Napa. The Duke alum's career best in 10 prior events is T15 all the back at the 2008 Puerto Rico Open, so he's on the cusp of eclipsing that. For the week, he tallied 17 birdies versus five bogeys and is currently 7th in SG: Putting at 5.207.

Following a 3 hour, 28 minute delay for inclement weather, the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba resumed at 4:45 p.m. ET. After darkness suspends play tonight, the final round will resume at 8:00 a.m. on Monday.

As proactive as tournament officials were bumping up tee times for yesterday's third round, they were less than so for today's finale. None of the 78 players had concluded their respective rounds when play was halted at 1:17 p.m., with the final threesome on just their eighth hole of the day when play resumed. As a barometer, R1 was halted for darkness at 6:12 p.m. on Thursday, so they'll have approximately one hour and change to get as much golf in as possible. Ryan Blaum will finish. He's on the green at the par-5 seventh (his 16th hole) and looking to extend a birdie-eagle-birdie streak prior to the stoppage. The 32-year-old was one (of two) open qualifiers to make the cut this week in México.

Ryan Blaum lit up Sycamore Hills GC for a bogey-free 8-under-par 32-32=64 in the opening round of the Hotel Fitness Championship for the 18-hole lead.

Blaum spread his birdies evenly across the course, circling four on each nine. He landed just 12 GIR, but his 1.583 putting average allowed him to cash in numerous times. He did not earn one of the 25 PGA TOUR cards handed out during the Tour regular season, so his performance over the next four weeks is for all the marbles. A win this week would easily place him on the PGA TOUR next season.
