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.
Feb 14 - 2:18 PM

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.

Ryan Blaum fired a 7-under-par 32-31=63 in the first round of the Stonebrae Classic to stake claim to a share of the 18-hole lead.

Blaum began his round on the 10th hole at TPC Stonebrae, squaring his only bogey of the round at the par-4 13th before catching fire. Birdies at the 14th and 16th holes surrounded an eagle at the par-5 15th, and he then added four more birdies on the front nine. He found 14 GIR and putted to a solid 1.50 average.

Ryan Blaum managed a 3-under-par 34-34=68 at Thornblade Club in the third round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am to take a share of the 54-hole lead at 14-under 201.

Blaum circled three birdies and an eagle, squaring two bogeys, on a breezy day and unseasonably cool day in the Upstate of South Carolina. In fact, those were his only two bogeys of the tournament, as bogey avoidance has been a key to his success this week. He missed just one fairway and two GIR in a solid display of ball-striking on Saturday. He will try and close out his first Tour victory on Sunday.

Ryan Blaum spun a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the opening round of the Chitimacha Louisiana Open and shared the lead with Kyle Reifers when darkness suspended play.

Blaum began his day on Le Triomphe CC's back nine, trading a birdie at 12 for a bogey on 13 before rattling off four consecutive birdies just in time to make the turn. Focusing his attention to the front, he added birdies at two and three to make it six circles in seven holes. His second, and final, bogey of the day at the sixth was erased by a final birdie at seven. His 15 GIR and 1.533 putting average were both among the best in the field. The Duke product made two of his four cuts to start the Tour season, but has yet to crack a top 25.

Ryan Blaum survived a seven-way playoff for the final berth into the Reno-Tahoe Open at today's open qualifier at Hidden Valley Country Club in Reno.

Blaum tied for 26th at the Sanderson Farms Championship two weeks ago after earning an exemption via the NGA TOUR. Today he completed regulation in 5-under-par 32-35=67 with six birdies against one bogey. Among the six others he outlasted in the playoff were former PGA TOUR members Brad Elder (bogey-free, 34-33=67; 5 birdies) and Mathias Grönberg (35-32=67; 6 birdies, 1 bogey). The four-spotter boasted three co-medalists. Former TOUR member Steve Allan converted seven birdies to erase one bogey en route to a 6-under 33-33=66. T.J. Vogel turned in a 6-under 34-32=66, also circling seven birdies against a lone bogey. Creigton Honeck signed for a 6-under 31-35=66 on the strength of nine birdies to offset three bogeys. The field at Montreux Golf and Country Club is now complete at 132.

Ryan Blaum has been added to the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

One opening remained when the field was released on Friday afternoon. Blaum grabbed it when he won the Magnolia Bluffs Casino Classic on the NGA TOUR. The PGA TOUR event at Annandale Golf Club reserved a spot in the field of 132 for the champion of the minor-league tour event in Natchez, Miss. Blaum is 2-for-5 lifetime on the PGA TOUR with a T15 at the 2008 Puerto Rico Open.

Ryan Blaum was one of four to qualify for this week's Wyndham Championship at today's four-spotter at Bryan Park GC (Champions Course) in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The former All-American at nearby Duke shot a 4-under-par 67 to finish T-2 with Fernando Mechereffe. David Robinson was the medalist at 5-under 66. And Simon McGreal (-3) survived a 9-for-1 playoff for the final spot. Blaum played the Wyndham on a sponsor exemption in 2007, finishing 82nd. This will be the PGA Tour debut for the other three MQs. Notables that failed to qualify include Neal Lancaster (-3), Omar Uresti (-2), Chip Beck (-2), Deane Pappas (-1), Stephen Gangluff (+2) and Dick Mast (+5). The field is now complete at 156.

Ryan Blaum posted a 6-under 66 in the second round of the inaugural Puerto Rico Open.

Blaum stands at an aggregate 9-under par through 36 holes in this, just his second-ever PGA Tour start (82nd, 2007 Wyndham). He played for legendary coach, Rod Myers, at Duke before he passed away on March 30, 2007. If Blaum manages to win this week, he'd be the first Monday qualifier to turn the trick since Fred Wadsworth claimed the Southern Open in 1986. (Jim Benepe won the 1988 Western on a sponsor's exemption.)
