Jonas Blixt survived a poor ball-striking day with a 1-under-par 34-35-69 during the second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, placing him T8 on the live leaderboard at 4-under 136.
The Swede really struggled with his long game today, missing nine (of 14) fairways and landing just nine greens in regulation. His play around the green allowed him to scramble 7-of-9 times. Most notable were back-to-back hole outs from off the green at the par-4 sixth and seventh holes. The first came from 40'3" and the second was 24'2", both for birdies. This is the second straight round that Blixt has squeezed the most juice out of his game. That could lead to a decline over the weekend if his short game doesn't hold up, but at the same time his approach play could return to normal and then he'll be in great position to contend here at Colonial Country Club.

Jonas Blixt grinded out a 3-under-par 32-35=67 to open his week at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

The Swede started on the back nine today and rattled off nine straight pars before circling his first birdie. It wasn't stress-free by any means, as he saved par from outside six feet on four occasions, three of them from outside 10 feet. This is really a case of squeezing the most out of an average ball-striking round. Blixt has a pair of top 15s at this event, but this round goes in the books as his second-lowest loop at Colonial Country Club. Through 18 holes, he's in great position to rise up the leaderboard again, and may vault into course horse status if he can piece together a third top 15 here in Fort Worth, Texas.

Jonas Blixt bombarded the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, signing for a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the second round of THE PLAYERS, making him the first to reach the clubhouse in double digits at 10-under 134.

The local resident hit just 12 greens in regulation but great play on and around the greens kept his round going. He opened on the back nine and circled five birdies before making the turn, three of them were rolled in from distances between 7-and-13 feet. As he made the turn, he splashed in his longest putt of the day, a 21'2" bomb to save par at the par-4 first hole. He walked off the course gaining 2.708 strokes with the flat stick. Blixt is taking advantage of his local knowledge early in the week and he's never been afraid of the spotlight when playing at the top, winning twice in 108 starts. The Florida State product has played the par 5s at 8-under-par so far this week.

Jonas Blixt bombarded Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

The Swede opened on the back nine and grinded out four pars before circling his first birdie. It came on the par-3 14th hole where he landed his tee shot to inside two feet, barely needing his putter to tap in. The flat stick was needed three holes later, though, as he splashed in a 19'6" birdie bomb on the par-4 17th hole. He backed it up with a 43'1" hole out from off the green on the par-4 18th before making the turn at 3-under 33. The Florida State product added two more birdie rolls from outside 20 feet on the inward nine, racking up 1.980 strokes gained:putting at the time of his signing. Blixt arrived in great form and is continuing to play well through round one.
Mar 31 - 1:56 PM

Jonas Blixt chiseled out a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in the first round of this week's Valspar Championship.

The Florida State product took his name out of the running for a bogey-free round quickly as he got in trouble behind a tree on the par-4 third hole, settling for a bogey. He bounced back with a near-ace, as his tee ball landed to inch from the cup on the following hole. Blixt built on that momentum with another birdie on the par-5 fifth, this time from 7'6". He walked off the course with 2.549 strokes gained:putting. Blixt remains a wildcard, week-to-week, but he's in great position through 18 holes at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club.
Mar 10 - 5:04 PM

Jonas Blixt carved out a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the finale of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to post 15-under 272, up two spots on the day and good for solo third, two swings adrift of champion Vaughn Taylor.

After opening in 67-69-67, Blixt began his final frame on 12-under (T5) four back of 54-hole leader Phil Mickelson. He kicked off his scoring with a three-foot birdie at the par-4 third and at one point, took the outright lead on 15-under with eagle (from 12'2") at the par-5 fifth. The Swede added another with an 18'9" birdie-2 at seven, but then stalled out, playing his final 11 holes in 1-over (one birdie, two bogeys). Despite the two squares, he ends his personal best in three AT&T appearances T1 for the week in bogeys with only three, after posting blemish-free loops in rounds one and three (both for 67s). After recording just one top 10 last season in 26 events, the 31-year-old has surpassed that already with two on 10 starts thus far in 2015-16.

Jonas Blixt authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 on day three of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to post 12-under 203, up six spots on the live leaderboard to T4. UPDATE: With play completed, Blixt sits in a two-way T5, four back of 54-hole leader Phil Mickelson.

The Swede was bogey-free on day one as well with 67 at the par-71 Monterey Peninsula CC's Shore Course and chased with 3-under 69 on Pebble Beach Golf Links. Thru 14 holes of his third frame at Spyglass Hill GC, he had circled birdies on Nos. 1, 7 and 14 (all par 5s), before adding par breakers on the par-3 15th and the par-4 17th to conclude his day. With three loops in the books, the 31-year-old is currently T86 in driving accuracy (28/41) and T63 in greens in regulation (35/54), but he's T2 in bogeys (three) and T4 in putts per GIR at 1.600.

Jonas Blixt bobbed and weaved to a 3-under-par 33-36=69 on day two of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to post 7-under 136, up six places on the leaderboard to T10.

Blixt opened his third AT&T appearance with bogey-free 67 on the par-71 Monterey Peninsula CC's Shore Course. His second round on Pebble Beach Golf Links began off No. 10 tee and he exchanged one birdie with one bogey to turn even. After the break, the scorecard got way more colorful, registering just two pars over his final nine which featured five birdies against two bogeys. The 31-year-old played his last six holes in birdie-bogey-birdie-birdie-birdie-bogey. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed just 11 greens in regulation, but posted a tidy 2.083 in strokes gained: putting. All six of his birdies traveled less than 13 feet and his three bogeys were all failed scrambles.

Jonas Blixt rounded off the two-day finale of the Farmers Insurance Open with a 5-over-par 39-38=77 to post 2-under 286, good for a two-way tie for sixth.

Blixt bagged his last top 10 with T10 at the regular-season-ending Wyndham Championship back in August. He needed that finish to make the Playoffs and was his only top-10 finish last season on 26 starts. The Swede opened 2015-16 with T48 (Fry.com) and chased with five straight missed cuts before T28 at the CareerBuilder (69-69-68-68). This week's showing at the Farmers, his first top 20 in six appearances, built off a solid showing in La Quinta, and attributed his recent success to merely standing closer to the ball at address. The 31-year-old had seven holes to complete on Monday, and did so in a steady 1-over, outpacing birdie at 13 with bogeys at 15 and 17. Overall, he dropped one place from his 54-hole standing, but improved one spot after the resumption of play.
Feb 1 - 6:24 PM

After making the cut on the number, Jonas Blixt fired a 6-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 7-under 209, up 53 places on the live leaderboard to T4, one shot off the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Blixt sits in a four-way T5, two back of co-leaders Scott Brown and K.J. Choi.

Play is still in progress but Blixt's 66 is going to be the low lap of the day (easily), and ties 18-hole co-leader Scott Brown for low 18 of the week on Torrey Pines South. He opened Moving Day off No. 10 tee and circled five in a blemish-free first nine. Three traveled in excess of 10 feet, including a 22-footer at the par-3 11th. After the break, he added two more (from inside six feet) at four and six before suffering his lone bogey with a failed scramble at the par-3 eighth. The 31-year-old, making his 100th career start on TOUR, is a two-time winner but not since the 2013 Greenbrier.
Jan 30 - 5:34 PM

Jonas Blixt disappointed gamers during the fall to arrive at the holiday break in 168th position on the FedExCup leaderboard.

The Swede went just 1-for-5 over the fall with a T48 at the season lid-lifter going as his only payday. This is nothing new for Blixt who hovers around 50 percent cuts made over his career. Consistency has never been his forte, but gamers should keep their eye out for any sign of regained form.

Jonas Blixt is in Saint Simons Island, Georgia, to contest his second RSM Classic.

Blixt went T84/MDF in his tournament debut last season, missing the 54-hole cut by five on rounds of 72-67-72. In total, he made 12 cuts and missed 14 in 2014-15 with one top 10 (T10, Wyndham). The Wyndham finish, which featured a career-low 62, got him into the Playoffs, but he was bounced after a missed cut at The Barclays, finishing 123rd in FedExCup points. The 31-year-old has won twice on TOUR in 96 career events, with the last coming at the 2013 Greenbrier, 58 starts ago. He opened 2015-16 with a T48 at the Frys.com Open but has missed three straight cuts on the bounce.

Jonas Blixt is 6-under-par 70-68=138 through two rounds of the Frys.com Open, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

With a late surge, he snuck into the FedExCup Playoffs as the 123-seed. With the standings reset, he's suddenly poised for a spot early in this season's rank. Thus far at Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course, Blixt has hit just 25 greens in regulation but he's circled a field-tying-high 11 birdies. Today's set included conversions from 12'5" at the par-5 16th hole and 23'7" at the par-4 sixth. All five of his bogeys are a result of failed scrambles, including at No. 16 on Thursday. Nevertheless, he won't complain about his position entering the weekend.

Jonas Blixt qualified for his fourth consecutive FedExCup Playoffs and enters The Barclays ranked 121st in the FEC standings.

Blixt was one of five players who moved inside the top 125 after last week's Wyndham Championship, starting the week on the outside looking in at No. 135 in the FedExCup standings. He was T2 after 54 holes in Greensboro, following a career-low 62 in round three, but faded to T10 with a final-round even-par 70. Still, the 67.50 FEC points he collected was enough to secure his spot in the Playoffs for a fourth consecutive year. The T10 was his first top 10 of the season on 25 starts. Blixt survived a stretch of eight missed cuts on 10 events, including five straight, by posting three top 25s in his last four starts to secure his spot. Post-Wyndham, he stated, "It’s a big heavy burden taken off my shoulders right now," … It feels really, really good to be able to play well again and hopefully I can make a little run at it in the Playoffs." The 31-year-old is 2-for-3 at The Barclays with a T46 in 2012 (Bethpage State Park) his best showing.

Jonas Blixt bobbed and weaved to an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to conclude his second appearance at 13-under 267, four adrift of champion Davis Love III.

After opening in 65-70 and a career-low 62, Blixt began his final frame at 13-under (T2) and one adrift of 54-hole leader Jason Gore. Playing with Gore in the final pairing, Blixt circled one birdie on his outward half at the par-4 sixth (from 3'4") to turn 1-under. He missed three scoring chances from inside 11 feet prior to the break. After pars at 10 and 11, he played his last seven holes without a par, outpacing three birdies at Nos. 13, 14 and 17 with four bogeys at 12, 15, 16 and 18. After posting positive numbers in strokes gained: tee-to-green over the first three days, the Swede concluded in a dismal -2.371. His bogey at the last dropped him out of a share of sixth into a share of 10th. He needed a 13th-place finish to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs and he succeeded. It's his first top 10 of the season (25 events) and first since his runner-up at the 2014 Masters 34 starts ago.
