Jonas Blixt carded a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the Masters.
He was making noise through 14 holes today thanks to five birdies against just one bogey. But disaster struck at the par-5 15th. After laying up to about 75 yards, Blixt chunked his third into the pond fronting the green. His fifth came to rest on the back fringe from where he two-putted for a 7. After coming home with three pars, he posted 4-under 212 and sits two strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead. Of course, the Swede's deficit from the top is likely to be double digits, so a victory is all but by the boards. Apr 11 - 5:15 PM

Jonas Blixt turned in a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of the Masters.

The Swede qualified for the tournament by sharing runner-up honors in his debut last year. He's done nothing since to fulfill another criterion, but he clearly rises to the occasion at Augusta National Golf Club. He's hit 25 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies against five bogeys. Blixt is only 2-under on the par 5s, but he was inside the top 20 on the leaderboard at 2-under 142, 12 strokes back of the 36-hole lead.
Apr 10 - 5:12 PM

Jonas Blixt shot 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing five swings in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Blixt has not had a good season. He arrived in Houston slotted 142nd in the FedExCup standings with a pair of top 15s in the fall. So, if you're on board this week, continue to hold your breath. He split nine (of 12) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation today. All three of his birdies disappeared on par 5s. They complemented a contender for shot of the day. After piping his drive 325 yards and into the fairway at the par-4 17th, Blixt jarred his approach from 159 yards for eagle. At last check, he ranked third in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 2.981.

Jonas Blixt has made half of his eight cuts on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign ahead of this week's Valspar Championship.

The Swede had a nice run in the Fall Series, posting a pair of top-15 finishes, but has missed three of his five cuts in 2015. The best result was a T31 in his last start, which was The Honda Classic. A product of Florida State University, it would stand to reason that the Bermuda greens of the Copperhead Course could play in his favor. Looking back at his course history, he as a T38 in 2013 and a missed cut last year.

Jonas Blixt turned in a 4-under-par 34-34=68 for his opening round of the Farmers Insurance open at Torrey Pines North.

Blixt is having a relative quiet season what with two top 15s as his only paydays in five starts. He's 107th in the FedExCup standings. However, today he was anything but, having holed eagles at the par-5 14th and 18th holes. It's the 13th time this season that a golfer has converted on a pair in the same round. The Swede checked up four strokes off the pace of clubhouse leader Nicholas Thompson. Blixt will do what he can with Torrey South in Friday's second round.
Feb 5 - 8:35 PM

Jonas Blixt finished in a share of seventh place at last month's Nedbank Golf Challenge and now turns his attention to this week's Humana Challenge.

The Swede enters the event with poor Humana history, missing the cut in both of his trips prior. History has never been a big concern for Blixt and neither has consistency. In 69 career PGA TOUR starts he owns eight top 10s but has also missed 25 cuts along the way. Gamers can target the Swede as a high risk, high reward option this week in La Quinta, California.

Jonas Blixt finished the 2013-14 PGA TOUR campaign ranked 102nd in the FedExCup standings due in large part to his T2 at the Masters.

The Swede's big week at Augusta National went for his only top 10 of the season. He is not known for being a very good ball-striker, but can light it up with the flat stick. He is already showing a little more consistency to start the new season, cracking the top 15 in two of his three starts and ranking 73rd in the current FEC standings.

Jonas Blixt converted six birdies his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, but shot 1-under-par 35-36=71.

That's what happens when you absorb three bogeys and a double as well. He totaled 13 greens in regulation, so it was uncharacteristic coming from the Swede with a reputation as a terrific scrambler. However, at 6-under 210, he's just four shots off the clubhouse lead.

Jonas Blixt submitted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 for his second round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, reaching the midpoint in 5-under 139, one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Swede landed only 10 greens in regulation in the opener, so he should have been pleased with the three-birdie, two-bogey scorecard. Today's stats are available at the moment, but Blixt buried an eagle at the par-5 second hole to complement three birdies. A bogey-6 at his penultimate hole (No. 8) interrupted some momentum, but he's in position to pounce on Saturday.

Jonas Blixt smoothed a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his final round of the CIMB Classic.

After opening the tournament with a pair of 69s, the Swede faded terribly with a 75 on Saturday. Today served as a reversal. Blixt holed six birdies, including a walk-off 4 at the 18th hole. At 9-under 279, he sits on the very early 72-hole clubhouse lead, but outside the top 10 on the leaderboard. Regardless, he'll end a drought without a top 30 in a stroke-play event that dates back to June.

Jonas Blixt enjoyed his 69 on Thursday at the CIMB Classic, he turn in another in the second round.

Blixt squared three bogeys today, but he circled six birdies for the second consecutive day. He's played the par 5s in bogey-free 6-under with six birdies, but has parred the par-5 18th hole twice. At 6-under 138, he's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Jonas Blixt finished in a share of 25th place in last year's CIMB Classic and returns for another shot at this week's edition.

The Swede ended his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with a missed cut and has two missed cuts since, one on the European Tour. Form is never a true indicator for Blixt as his runner-up finish at last year's Masters came on the heels of two missed cuts and his win at The Greenbrier came after a missed cut the week prior. His putter makes him a threat each week, but his tee-to-green game is ultimately what will decide his fate this week.

Jonas Blixt captured his first PGA TOUR victory at the 2012 Frys.com Open and is back in action at this year's edition.

The venue has changed to Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course, but perhaps he will still be able to recapture the vibe that led him to a win. After winning in each of his first two seasons on the PGA TOUR, he failed to repeat the feat a season ago. His closest call came at the Masters, where he tied for second. Known as an excellent putter, he will contend on the weeks where his ball-striking allows him the opportunity.

Jonas Blixt will have a crack at Ridgewood Country Club at The Barclays this week.

The Swede has lost all form since the Masters, finishing outside the top 30 in eight straight events. He enters the week ranked 92nd in the FedExCup standings. Blixt is two for two in his Barclays career, with both finishes landing inside the top 60 but outside the top 45. The good news for the Swede supporters is his reputation to strike without any prior form necessary. He finished runner-up at the Masters after missing two cuts prior and won the 2013 Greenbrier Classic even though he entered with abysmal form.

Jonas Blixt tied for 59th in the 2013 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and is back for a second look at Firestone CC this week.

The Swede has lacked heat since his T2 at the Masters, missing four of his last six cuts on the PGA TOUR with nothing better than a T35 The Greenbrier Classic. Combining that with the fact that he failed to break par in any of his four rounds at Firestone last season, and it's likely a good week to fade Blixt. The strength of his game is on and around the greens, while ball-striking should be a major key to success this week.
