Jonas Blixt had a change of heart ahead of this week's Valspar Championship, removing himself from the field on Monday. Troy Merritt will take his spot in the field.
The Swede snapped out of a four-event slump last time out when he posted a T41 at the Genesis Open. He had last week off and was an early commit to this week's Valspar but changed his mind since. There is no word or reason to suspect injury in this situation, but gamers should keep their eyes peeled. Blixt is 5-for-10 to start the new season, just 168th in the early FedExCup race. The Swede is not in danger of losing his TOUR card this season, thanks to a team victory at last year's Zurich which ensures him status through the 2018-19 season. Mar 5 - 1:12 PM

Jonas Blixt is 0-for-2 at the Genesis Open and returns this week for a third crack at Riviera Country Club.

Blixt missed the cut in his 2012 Genesis debut and returned the following year with a similar result. After a four-year absence, the Swede is ready for third helpings. More recently, he's missed the cut in each of his last four starts. With sub-par course history and sub-par form, Blixt is a long shot to contend this week. At the same time, he's not the type of golfer that announcing his presence before popping. That keeps his status in the boom-or-bust category.
Feb 14 - 10:17 AM

World No. 281 Jonas Blixt is at Kapalua Resort for his third Sentry Tournament of Champions, and is the second-lowest golfer in OWGR (D.A. Points) in the 34-man winners-only event that features 10 of the world's top-25 players. UPDATE: Blixt finished 31st on 1-over 293 (77-71-75-70).

This is the 33-year-old's first visit in four years, stamping his ticket with a playoff win at the 2017 Zurich Classic (April) teamed with Cameron Smith. He previously qualified for the 2013 and 2014 editions -- from wins at the 2012 and 2013 Greenbrier -- where he finished T18 and T21 (of 30), respectively. In seven trips around the par-73 Plantation Course (2013 was reduced to 54 holes), the FSU alum has a 71.86 scoring average with a low of 69. Since his win in New Orleans 15 starts ago, which unfortunately did not come with any world-ranking points, he's missed seven cuts with just one top-30 finish. The Swede did make two starts overseas in late November, recording a T2 at the Australian Open and a MC one week later at the Australian PGA Championship (five weeks ago).
Jan 3 - 12:15 PM

Jonas Blixt grinded out a 3-under-par 35-33=68 during the opening round of the Dell Technologies Championship, entering the weekend inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.

The Swede only gave himself five scoring chances from inside 20 feet today, but still managed to swallow just one bogey. He did it with clutch putting as he converted on four par-savers from the 7-to-13 foot range. On top of the par-saving putts, he also drained a walk-off eagle from 35'9" at the par-5 18th. Blixt would walk off the course gaining 3.417 strokes putting on the day. To open the week he ranked just 84th in the FedExCup race so he'll need to keep his foot on the gas for three more rounds if he wants to play his way into the BMW Championship (top 70 advance).

Past champ and World No. 273 Jonas Blixt does battle in his fourth Greenbrier Classic and arrives 52nd in the FedExCup standings.

The 33-year-old won his second (of three) TOUR titles on debut here in 2013, coming from four back with a closing 3-under 67 to win by two. He's chased with T35/2014 and a missed cut (by one) in the event's most recent playing in 2015 (66-73). The Florida State alum is 11-for-20 on the season with four top 25s and one top 10, winning the Zurich Classic in a playoff teamed with Cameron Smith. His season best on his own ball is T18 four starts ago at the DEAN & DELUCA. The Swede ranks outside the top 100 in all strokes gained: categories with the exception of 12th in SG: Putting.

In four-ball action, overnight leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith authored a bogey-free 8-under-par 34-30=64 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 27-under 261, and will head to a 2-man playoff on Monday at 8:00 am CT with playing competitors Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown, with Kisner holing out for eagle at the 72nd hole to force extra time. UPDATE: Blixt/Smith won with a Smith birdie on the fourth hole of sudden death, the 588-yard par-5 18th. For Blixt, it's his third TOUR title in 133 career starts and Smith claims a maiden title in his 53rd career start. Both players earn 2-year TOUR exemptions and a host of other goodies.

For a second year in a row, the Zurich is heading to an unscheduled Monday playoff. After kicking off in 67-62-68, the Florida residents led two teams by four shots, including Kisner/Brown. They relinquished their lead after just four holes, opening with four straight pars, while Kisner/Brown birdied their first four, eventually carding eight straight. Blixt broke the ice with a 45'5" bomb for birdie-3 at five and Smith circled the par-5 seventh to turn 2-under, now two behind. Smith went on a 3-birdie run on holes 10-12, the latter from 33'11", and they took birdie-turns at 16 and 17, Smith at the par-3 17th to take a 1-shot lead to the par-5 18th. It was Smith again at the 72nd hole, pitching from 57 yards away to 18 inches for a tap-in 4 and a sure win, but Kisner did him one better, improbably pitching in from 94'6" away for eagle-3. Blixt/Smith are blemish-free thru 72 holes.

Overnight leaders Jonas Blixt and Tour grad Cameron Smith maintained their mastery of TPC Louisiana, smoothing a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, extending their lead to four on 19-under 197.

After kicking off in 67 (alternate shot) and 62 (best ball), the pairing began with a 1-shot lead over playing competitors Patrick Reed and Patrick Cantlay, who shot 75. Their 68 is just the second blemish-free lap on Day 3, and remain bogey-free thru 54 holes. Smith converted a 2-putt birdie-4 at the second and Blixt went back-to-back with a 17'8" birdie roll at the par-3 third. Blixt missed birdie at the par-5 seventh (from 4'2") but redeemed himself at the par-4 15th, hitting the approach to 39 inches for a Smith conversion. The pairing reached the par-5 18th in three, with Smith providing the finishing touches, jamming in a 17-foot birdie-4. Despite gusty conditions, they played virtually stress-free golf yet again. The only par putt they had to make outside of three feet all round was a 4'0" come-backer at the seventh.

Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith maintained a clean card for the week by firing a bogey-free, 10-under-par 30-32=62 during round two of the Zurich Classic, staking their claim as the 36-hole clubhouse leaders on 15-under 129. UPDATE: With play completed, Blixt/Smith lead by one over Patrick Reed and Patrick Cantlay.

This duo opened the day just one stroke off the overnight co-leaders, firing a 5-under 67 while playing alternate shot. Today, the format moved to four-ball, and the pairing continued to shine. They started on the 10th tee and picked up four birdies before the turn, all coming on putts from 7-to-14 feet. After the turn, the fireworks started. Smith splashed home a 31'1" eagle putt on the par-5 second hole and five holes later Blixt would add a second eagle, this time from 27'2". It was a balanced effort as they each carded four of the team's eight total parbreakers. In addition to the scoring, Smith added a crucial 10'3" par saver at the third hole. That helped them maintain a clean card for the round, as well as the entire week. Having a 36-hole lead will be a new experience for the young Aussie who has been inside the top 10 just once after R2 in his PGA TOUR career. Blixt has one 36-hole co-lead (2012 Shriners), finishing solo third that week.

World No. 252 Jonas Blixt readies for his fifth Zurich Classic of New Orleans and partners with Aussie and World No. 112 Cameron Smith, who posted a T43 in his only appearance in 2015 (69-70-69-69).

The Swede finished T72 (of 82) at the weather-plagued edition last year. That followed a missed cut in 2015 (by two) and a 70th (of 71) in 2013. The newly minted 33-year-old's fall off at TPC Louisiana has been stark, considering he went for T13 on debut in 2012, but it does mirror his career trend pretty closely. Blixt's last of two TOUR titles came in 2013 and 2013 is also the last year he played on a National Team. He enters the week 153rd in the FedExCup standings batting .500 on the season (in 14 starts) and a couple top 25s. Smith (no team experience) checks in at 67th in FEC points, 12-for-15 on the season with two top 10s, including a season-best T6 last week at the VTO, where he was the only one of 39 first-timers to top 10. The duo, who both reside in the Jacksonville, Florida, area, is currently an 80/1 outright.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 221 Jonas Blixt fired an 8-under-par 31-33=64 in today's second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 6-under 136, up 69 places on the live leaderboard to T7 and tying the low round of the week thus far with first-round leader Matt Kuchar. UPDATE: Blixt and J.J. Spaun shared the low lap with 64.

This is the 32-year-old's sixth appearance and had just one cash prior, a T34 in 2014. It's his best lap at TPC Scottsdale (14 rounds), previously 67/R1 in 2013, but he followed that with 1-over 72 to miss the cut. The Swede entered last week's Farmers off four straight MCs, but found a little something with a T20, his first top 25 of the season in seven starts. He kicked off this week with an up-and-down 1-over 72, but rebounded for an eight-birdie one-bogey showing on six (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 4.225 strokes tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. Blixt's split featured seven conventional from inside of 10 feet with a long of 22'2" at the par-4 11th, and added a 26-footer from the fringe for birdie-3 at the sixth.

World No. 240 Jonas Blixt signed for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 after the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open for a three-day tally of 7-under 209, up six places on the live leaderboard to T5, two back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Patrick Rodgers.

The 32-year-old chased an opening 68 (North Course) with a three-birdie three-bogey 72 on the South Course at Torrey Pines. Today, he squared bogey-5s at holes 5 and 10, the former a 3-putt from 40'8", but camouflaged them with five conventional birdies at 2, 8 (from 15'6"), 13 and 18, adding a pitch-in birdie at the par-3 16th from 36'1" away. The FSU alum piped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, gaining 3.349 strokes tee-to-green, but lost 0.742 strokes with the flat stick.

Jonas Blixt breezed through the North Course at Torrey Pines, posting a 4-under-par 35-33=68 to open his week at the Farmers Insurance Open.

The Swede is making his sixth appearance at the Farmers, arriving with a 4-for-5 record that includes a T6 in last year's running. Blixt found 13 greens during his navigation of the newly redesigned North Course today. It wasn't all peaches and cream, though, as he needed three swipes just to reach the green at the par-3 eighth, resulting in a double bogey. Later, he also stumbled with a three-putt bogey at the par-4 11th. By day's end he squared three bogeys in addition to the double bogey, but offset those with nine birdies. The two-time TOUR winner certainly runs hot and cold on a week-to-week basis but today it was the former.

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.
