Jonas Blixt will have a crack at Ridgewood Country Club at The Barclays this week.
The Swede has lost all form since the Masters, finishing outside the top 30 in eight straight events. He enters the week ranked 92nd in the FedExCup standings. Blixt is two for two in his Barclays career, with both finishes landing inside the top 60 but outside the top 45. The good news for the Swede supporters is his reputation to strike without any prior form necessary. He finished runner-up at the Masters after missing two cuts prior and won the 2013 Greenbrier Classic even though he entered with abysmal form. Aug 19 - 10:19 PM

Jonas Blixt tied for 59th in the 2013 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and is back for a second look at Firestone CC this week.

The Swede has lacked heat since his T2 at the Masters, missing four of his last six cuts on the PGA TOUR with nothing better than a T35 The Greenbrier Classic. Combining that with the fact that he failed to break par in any of his four rounds at Firestone last season, and it's likely a good week to fade Blixt. The strength of his game is on and around the greens, while ball-striking should be a major key to success this week.
Jul 30 - 3:38 PM

Overnight leader Jonas Blixt blew up for a 3-over-par 37-36=73 in his second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 3-under 137 at the break, six strokes off Billy Hurley III's 36-hole lead.

Blixt's sublime touch on and around greens couldn't save him today. He hit 12 of them in regulation but got up and down only twice en route to four bogeys. He added a three-jack 5 at from just outside 64 feet at the par-4 fifth. Overall, he whiffed on three attempts from five-and-a-half feet and in.
Jul 4 - 8:23 PM

Jonas Blixt opened his title defense of The Greenbrier Classic with a 6-under-par 31-33=64 to assume outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

The Swede loves himself The Old White TPC. He wasted no time in climbing the leaderboard with birdies on seven of his first 10 holes, including an eight-yard hole-out from the rough at 16 and a conventional conversion from 20'8" at 18 for his longest of the round. After a bogey-5 at No. 5, he bounced back with a birdie-3 at 6 and parred in. Overall, Blixt split nine (of 14) fairways, but hit only 10 greens in regulation, totals in line with his uninspiring aggregate of a year ago. (He averaged 8.75 fairways hit and 12 GIR en route to his second PGA TOUR title.) Today's 64 matches also matches his career low on the PGA TOUR; it's the third time he's signed for one. His last came in the second round of the 2012 Shriners.
Jul 3 - 12:59 PM

Jonas Blixt picked up his second PGA TOUR win at The Greenbrier Classic in 2013 and is back to defend this week.

Blixt went 13-under-par 66-67-67-67=267 in his first trip to The Old White TPC to capture the title. While he's known as an elite putter, his strokes gained is a modest 56th. Since his runner-up finish at the Masters, he's missed three of four cuts with a T75 at THE PLAYERS the only respite. From what we've learned about the third-year PGA TOUR pro to this point, it's hard to rely on what appears to be current form to predict his results in the next event. That makes the Swede a true wild card this week.

Jonas Blixt competes in his first U.S. Open later this week at Pinehurst No. 2.

Blixt is developing a reputation for being quite the big-game hunter. His T2 at the Masters earlier this year was his first top 10 anywhere in the world since his solo fourth at the PGA Championship in 2013. While he misses his share of cuts and can struggle to keep the ball in play, he has a penchant for getting hot with the flat stick. If he nabs a top 10 this week, he may as well be in play for all of the majors until proven otherwise.

Jonas Blixt finished 77th at THE PLAYERS in 2013 and hopes to improve on that this time around.

The Swede has turned into quite the predator in the biggest events, finishing inside the top 20 in the first two WGCs of 2014 before scoring a T2 in his first Masters. He's missed three of his last four cuts, but form doesn't seem to indicate when he will or won't perform well. While their games are nothing alike, his recent penchant for playing well in big events is reminiscent of an Ángel Cabrera.

Jonas Blixt made the most of his first trip to the Masters, signing for a 1-under-par 35-35-71 in the final round to finish the week in a tie for second at 5-under 283.

Blixt is known for his smooth putting, but his ball-striking was the question in terms of how his game would acclimate to Augusta National Golf Club. He handled the pressure of the penultimate group in the final round of a major incredibly well, steadily circling two birdies to just one bogey when the lights shined the brightest. It seems he is a player that performs his best on the biggest stages.
Apr 13 - 6:45 PM

Jonas Blixt managed a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the third round of the Masters and trails the lead by a stroke with one round to go.

The Swede responded very well to the pressure of playing in the penultimate group in just his third major championship and first Masters. His two birdies on the opening nine at Augusta National Golf Club were erased by bogeys on the difficult par-4 11th and the relatively easy par-5 13th. In each of those cases, his second shot found the drink. He got back into red figured with birdies at the par-5 15th and par-3 16th, but gave back one of those with a final bogey at the par-4 17th. He will try and capture his first major championship title in Sunday's finale.
Apr 12 - 6:41 PM

Jonas Blixt followed his opening 70 at the Masters with a 1-under-par 35-36=71 to post 3-under 141 at the midpoint, four strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He birdied 2 and 3 to set an early tone, but a bogey-5 at the seventh served as a prelude to a double bogey at the par-4 11th where he rinsed his third left of the hole. However, he crawled back into red numbers with birdies at both par 5s before parring out. At the time he signed his card, he was low first-timer through two rounds.
Apr 11 - 5:31 PM

Jonas Blixt raced out to a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in his opening round of the Masters, good for a share of the early clubhouse lead.

Blixt has won a PGA TOUR event in each of the last two seasons, but his breakthrough at the 2012 Frys.com Open didn't comes with the automatic exemption that last season's title at Greenbrier rewarded. He wasted no time in enjoying his first lap around Augusta National despite hitting only 10 greens in regulation. He holed six birdies, including a long-range number at the par-4 ninth. He also settled for a birdie-4 at 13 where he cozied his second to within 10 feet.
Apr 10 - 12:55 PM

Jonas Blixt makes his way back to the Shell Houston open for the third year in a row.

The Swede enters the week ranked 94th in the FedExCup standings. Blixt has already secured four top 25s this season in just 10 events, matching the number of top 25s from his entire 2013 campaign.

Apr 1 - 9:31 AM

Jonas Blixt conjured a blemish-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

With the last few groups yet to tee off at Trump National Doral, the Swede demonstrated that birdies are out there to be had. Known for his putting, only two of his six birdies were from outside of 10 feet. When he gives himself numerous birdie opportunities from short-range, he is plenty capable of putting together this type of performance. He landed 14 GIR in the finale and putted to a 1.643 average. Blixt ends the week at 4-over 292.
Mar 9 - 2:12 PM

Jonas Blixt hopes the third time is a charm at the Waste Management Phoenix Open where he's missed the cut in both previous appearances.

The two-time PGA TOUR winner missed last year's cut on the number with a bogey on his 36th hole -- the par-4 18th. So, not only is he after some redemption following that gaffe but he's also missed the cut in the last two tour stops in California. Now 49th in the Official World Golf Ranking but already exempt into the Masters, he needs to hang on and put some success on the board if he's going to crack the field at Pinehurst No. 2 in June.

Jan 29 - 8:54 PM

Jonas Blixt tied for 18th in his first Hyundai Tournament of Champions last season and his win at The Greenbrier Classic affords him a return trip to kick off 2014.

The Florida State product isn't going to jump off the page as a quintessential contender on the Kapalua Resort Plantation Course. While his putter will also render him alive on many courses, his ball-striking is a major question mark. In his favor, the fairways should be easy to find, but he probably lacks the length needed to contend on the monster.
