Jonas Blixt brings his golf gear to Las Vegas, Nevada, for his third appearance at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
The Swede finished in solo-third during his Shriners debut (2012) but didn't return until last year's edition when he posted 74-69 to miss the cut. During that stellar debut he gained 11.74 strokes putting on the week, so it may take another scorching week with the flat stick. More recently, the two-time winner finished 107th in the FedExCup standings last season, earning his way into the Playoffs for the fifth-straight year. Blixt missed the cut, on the number, in his 2016-17 lid-lifter (Safeway Open). The 32-year-old is not the safest bet to play the weekend, but his good weeks often last the entire week, making him a very intriguing boom-or-bust selection in deeper fantasy formats.

Jonas Blixt twirled a 3-under-par 30-38=68 during his opening round of The Barclays, currently two strokes off the pacesetters Patrick Reed and Martin Laird.

The Swede opened on the back nine and needed a 19'10" putt just to save par at the par-4 10th. He kept the putter warm with a 12-footer at the next, for birdie this time. A pair of bogeys and a double bogey before the turn made the round look like a lost cause. That's where the flat stick really heated up, splashing home five putts from outside nine feet on the inward nine alone. That included a 17'2" birdie at the par-3 eighth and a 28'10" birdie bomb at the par-4 first to go along with an eagle at the par-5 seventh, from just 5'1". Blixt gained 4.066 strokes putting on the day. Entering the week on the TPC Boston bubble, ranked 100th in the FedExCup standings, he needs to keep his foot on the gas in order to qualify for the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs.

Jonas Blixt carved out a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of the Barracuda Championship to gain nine points and a two-day total of 16 points, up 23 spots to solo eighth with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old was T2 thru 54 holes here last year in his tourney debut (+40 points), but stalled out to -3 points in the finale and T13. He opened this week with four birdies against a lone bogey for seven points, and circled six against three squares in R2. The Swede went off No. 10 tee and landed eight (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.583 putts per GIR. He bogeyed Nos. 11, 16 and 1, missing three par-savers from inside of nine feet, but outpaced them with birdies on 12, 14, 15, 18, 2 and 9. Four of his birdies traveled between 13 and 17 feet, highlighted by a walk-off from 16'11" at the par-4 ninth.

Jonas Blixt contests his second Barracuda Championship at the Montrêux Golf and Country Club in Reno, Nevada, and enters 78th in the FedExCup standings.

In his tourney debut last year, the 32-year-old was T2 thru 54 holes (+40 points), one point back of eventual champ J.J. Henry, but cratered to T13 with -3 points in the finale. For the week, he totaled one eagle and 22 birdies against nine bogeys and a double in the Modified Stableford Format. The Swede kicked off his fifth TOUR season with five missed cuts in seven events before connecting two top-6 finishes in a three-week period, highlighted by a season-best third at Pebble Beach. Those are his only two top 10s so far this season in 20 events however, missing a total of eight cuts. The FSU alum does arrive off four straight cashes, starting the run with a T19 at THE PLAYERS and posting a T46 in his most recent action at the Memorial four weeks ago.

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.

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.

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 ( 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.

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.

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.
