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. Dec 7 - 9:27 PM

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.

Jonas Blixt smoothed a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his final round of the CIMB Classic.

After opening the tournament with a pair of 69s, the Swede faded terribly with a 75 on Saturday. Today served as a reversal. Blixt holed six birdies, including a walk-off 4 at the 18th hole. At 9-under 279, he sits on the very early 72-hole clubhouse lead, but outside the top 10 on the leaderboard. Regardless, he'll end a drought without a top 30 in a stroke-play event that dates back to June.

Jonas Blixt enjoyed his 69 on Thursday at the CIMB Classic, he turn in another in the second round.

Blixt squared three bogeys today, but he circled six birdies for the second consecutive day. He's played the par 5s in bogey-free 6-under with six birdies, but has parred the par-5 18th hole twice. At 6-under 138, he's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Oct 31 - 4:30 AM

Jonas Blixt finished in a share of 25th place in last year's CIMB Classic and returns for another shot at this week's edition.

The Swede ended his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with a missed cut and has two missed cuts since, one on the European Tour. Form is never a true indicator for Blixt as his runner-up finish at last year's Masters came on the heels of two missed cuts and his win at The Greenbrier came after a missed cut the week prior. His putter makes him a threat each week, but his tee-to-green game is ultimately what will decide his fate this week.

Jonas Blixt captured his first PGA TOUR victory at the 2012 Frys.com Open and is back in action at this year's edition.

The venue has changed to Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course, but perhaps he will still be able to recapture the vibe that led him to a win. After winning in each of his first two seasons on the PGA TOUR, he failed to repeat the feat a season ago. His closest call came at the Masters, where he tied for second. Known as an excellent putter, he will contend on the weeks where his ball-striking allows him the opportunity.

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.

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.

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.
