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 Open but has missed three straight cuts on the bounce. Nov 18 - 11:26 AM

Jonas Blixt is 6-under-par 70-68=138 through two rounds of the 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.

Jonas Blixt ran roughshod over Sedgefield Country Club in the third round of the Wyndham Championship, posting an 8-under-par 31-31=62 and a three-day total of 13-under 197, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Blixt began the day at 5-under (T32) and six of adrift of 36-hole leaders Tiger Woods and Tom Hoge. Thru 36 holes, he had carded 10 birdies, today, he circled nine, including four on his outward nine to turn 4-under. His birdie roll from 28'9" at the ninth was outdone by a 58-footer at the par-4 opener for longest conversion on the day. After the break, he added his fifth circle at the par-4 10th (from 16'11") before squaring his lone bogey at the 11th after missing the green in regulation, one of three on the day in that category. The Swede bounced back with consecutive birdies on 12 and 13 and added two more to the card at Nos. 15 and 17 for his final tally. At the time he signed his card, the 31-year-old had totaled 19 birdies thru 54 holes, currently first in the field in that stat. His 62 is low round of the day thus far, and a career low in 281 rounds on the PGA TOUR.
Aug 22 - 3:12 PM

Jonas Blixt toured Sedgefield Country Club in 5-under-par 33-32=65 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

He's one of the bubble boys at 135th in the FedExCup standings, so the Swede will need to keep it floored on a track that rewards aggressive play. Blixt bogeyed the only hole where he missed the greens in regulation -- the par-3 third -- but he recovered to spread six birdies on his last 15 holes. The set included conversions from 50'3" at the par-3 seventh hole and 52 feet at the par-4 11th. At last check, he ranked just inside the top 20 in both strokes-gained stats. Today's aggregate is his lowest since a first-round 64 at the 2014 Greenbrier Classic 13½ months ago.
Aug 20 - 2:02 PM

Jonas Blixt turned in a 16-point performance after today's third round of the Barracuda Championship to post a 54-hole total of 40 points, one point back of leader J.J. Henry.

Blixt began the day at 24 points (T3) and two points adrift of 36-hole, co-leaders Brendan Steele and Andres Gonzales. Playing with Henry in the penultimate pairing, the Swede hit just 10 greens in regulation but made good on seven scoring chances, for a sparkling 1.400 putts per GIR. His split featured five conversions from inside five feet, including an eagle from a mere 4'3" at the par-5 eighth. He also holed-out for birdie from just off the green at the par-3 11th, his second of what would become five straight circles on the card. His dropped points came as bogeys on Nos. 4, 9 and 15 after missing each GIR. Making his 24th start of the season, the 31-year-old has yet to record a top-10 finish, entering his Barracuda debut ranked 137th in the FedExCup standings.
Aug 8 - 11:06 PM

Jonas Blixt matched his 12-point opening round of the Barracuda Championship in today's second round to post 24 at the midpoint, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with J.J. Henry.

Blixt connected on half of his 14 scoring chances at Montrêux today, all falling for birdies. Four of them disappeared from outside 10 feet, including conversions from 29'11" at the par-4 10th hole and 21'8" at the par-4 15th. He also suffered two bogeys, the second a three-putt from just inside 39 feet at the par-4 17th. Blixt hasn't recorded a top 10 on the PGA TOUR since a co-runner-up at the 2014 Masters. That's a drought of 32 consecutive starts.
Aug 7 - 4:06 PM

Jonas Blixt converted six birdies en route to 12 points in today's opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

The Swede went 6-for-6 in scrambling as well en route to the bogey-free trot around Montrêux Golf and Country Club today. He circled three birdies on each nine, only two of which ranging as long as 10-12 feet. Blixt opened last week's Quicken Loans National with a bogey-free 66 and finished T30. He's just three points of the clubhouse lead in Reno and in need of a strong finish given he arrived slotted 137th in the FedExCup standings.
Aug 6 - 9:30 PM

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.
Jul 22 - 8:00 PM

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.
