Jonas Blixt spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-34=66 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National, coming to rest three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Blixt has been rounding into form of late, at least early in tournaments, but he hasn't put four rounds together all season. At 143rd in the FedExCup standings and 151st on the money list, he's in jeopardy of losing his fully exempt status on the PGA TOUR. However, one round into the QLN, the Swede has at least stalled the regression. He missed only one of the 14 fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club today. Along the way, he picked off five birdies, including a hole-out from the rough 16 yards away at the par-4 second hole. His notable conventional conversions measured 23 feet and 13 feet at the ninth and 12th holes, respectively. Jul 30 - 7:27 PM

Jonas Blixt turns his attention to Glen Abbey Golf Club for this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The Swede is the definition of boom-or-bust. He's missed the cut in 37 of his 87 career starts, while picking up a pair of wins and three other podium finishes to balance the scales. More recently he's missed the cut in eight of his last 10 starts. Relying on Blixt will cause gamers headaches week-to-week, but he often makes for a nice sleeper with the upside to win.

Jonas Blixt enters this week's Greenbrier Classic 140th in the FedExCup standings.

Blixt, 2013 Greenbrier champion, opened his defense last year with a 6-under-par 64 for the first-round lead, then fizzled to 2-over (73-68-71) the rest of the way finishing T35. The Swede began 2015 at No. 59 in the Official World Golf Ranking but is plummeting, arriving to the Greenbrier Resort at No. 117. Blixt is 7-for-18 on the season with three top 25s, the last coming at the Shell Houston Open eight starts ago. He has no top-10 finishes on his 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign. In fact, his last top 10 on TOUR was his joint runner-up at the 2014 Masters, which was his only top-10 finish of the 2013-14 season (on 21 starts). The 31-year-old has added three top 10s overseas during this drought, including a T7 on native soil at the Nordea Masters earlier this month.
Jun 30 - 5:04 PM

Jonas Blixt hung up a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Blixt hasn't competed at TPC Four Seasons since 2012, but considering he tied for third that week, it's fair to wonder why he didn't return until now. He covered two bogeys and a double today with an eagle (from 25'9" at the par-5 seventh hole) and five birdies. That latter set included conversions from 27'6" and 11'2" at Nos. 2 and 5, respectively. He checked up five strokes off the clubhouse lead. Continue to hold your breath, however. Blixt arrived having missed five consecutive cuts since a T28 at the Masters.
May 28 - 7:05 PM

Jonas Blixt turned in a pair of 4-over-par 74s at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, missing the cut by seven strokes.

Blixt found only 10 (of 28) fairways and 16 greens in regulation en route to his fifth consecutive MC. He erased four birdies with 10 bogeys and a double. At 138th in the FedExCup standings and fully exempt only through this season, the 31-year-old has some work to do to enjoy the same perks in 2015-16 that he has since breaking onto the PGA TOUR in 2012. He'll try again at next week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. Other notables that missed the cut at Colonial today include: 142--2006 champ Tim Herron; Sangmoon Bae; Daniel Berger; James Hahn; Sean O'Hair; Ryan Palmer ... 143--two-time champ Kenny Perry; John Senden ... 146--2011 champ David Toms ... 147--Jason Kokrak ... 148--two-time champ Corey Pavin ... 153--1987 champ Keith Clearwater.
May 22 - 7:33 PM

Jonas Blixt is in the published field at this week's PLAYERS where he's 2-for-2 with an average finish of 76th.

Blixt began the year 59th in the Official World Golf Ranking but has dropped to 94th on the heels of zero top 10s and seven missed cuts in 13 starts. We're nearing the point where the Swede begins to mix-in European Tour events (BMW PGA and the Nordea Masters on his native soil) but at 128th in the FedExCup standings he could use a good week at TPC Sawgrass prior to jumping the pond.
May 5 - 10:03 AM

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.
Apr 2 - 2:59 PM

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.
Mar 11 - 8:27 PM

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.
Jan 20 - 11:45 PM

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.
