Jhonattan Vegas turned in a 1-over-par 38-35=73 for his troubles in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open.
Competing in the final threesome, Vegas squared three bogeys and circled two birdies in his navigation of Torrey Pines South to complete 54 holes in 7-under 209. Those birdies came in succession, as he drained an 11'2" birdie at the par-3 11th and rolled in a 33'4" birdie on the par-4 12th hole. The 12th played as the most difficult for the round. He enters the final round as one of 12 players within two shots of the lead. Feb 7 - 6:03 PM

Jhonattan Vegas backed up his opening 67 at the Farmers Insurance Open with a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in his second round at Torrey Pines North.

The North Course is renown for having tight fairways. He should know as he found only two of 14 today. But Vegas managed to land 15 greens in regulation and convert six birdies against three bogeys. He checked in at 8-under 136, just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. The affable Venezuelan probably won't be able to get away with imprecision off the tee as much on the South Course on the weekend, but stranger things have happened.
Feb 6 - 6:24 PM

Jhonattan Vegas fashioned a 5-under-par 34-33=67 on the South Course of Torrey Pines in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

This will go in Vegas' memory as one of his best rounds in recent months, if not at the top. He split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. After converting an eagle from 33'8" at the par-5 sixth holes, the Venezuelan poured in four consecutive birdies beginning at the par-3 11th. He opened the run with a roll from 29-and-a-half feet, and then punctuated it with a hole-out from a bunker 21 yards away. Vegas went on to sign his card sitting three strokes off the clubhouse lead. He'll try to parlay today's success with another low one on Friday, but over at Torrey North.

Jhonattan Vegas brought home the bacon at the 2011 Humana Challenge and finds his way back for another look this week.

It was love at first sight for Vegas, who won during his Humana debut. He's been putrid ever since, missing the cut in each of the next two runnings and finishing 84th last season. Vegas collected a pair of top 10s right before the end of the 2013-14 season but he's still searching for his first of the new year.
Jan 20 - 11:50 PM

Jhonattan Vegas has made two of his four cuts to start the 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign and is ranked 121st in the FedExCup standings.

His best finish of the year was a T26 at the no-cut CIMB Classic, and Vegas followed that up with a T56 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. For what could be several reasons, he's never been one of the more reliable players on the PGA TOUR on a weekly basis. He's battled his share of injuries, but that appears to be behind him for now. He's likely a decent own at the right price in a full-season format, but still a risk in weekly games until he becomes a bit more predictable.

Jhonattan Vegas turns his attention overseas at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club for this week's CIMB Classic.

Vegas enters the week out of form, missing the cut in his first two starts of the new season. Fear not gamers, as his last three top 10s all came on the heels of back-to-back missed cuts. Vegas finished T23 in his 2011 CIMB debut, but this week will offer a new host course. He's not a safe play, but gamers might take a look if they want a risky, high-upside selection.

Jhonattan Vegas embarks on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at the Open in Napa, California.

While Vegas finished the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season 115th in the FedExCup standings, he seemed to hit his stride late in the year. A T3 at the John Deere Classic was followed by a T8 in the Wyndham Championship two starts later, and those were his only two top-10 finishes of the season. If he rides that wave of momentum into 2014-15, it could be a big season.

Jhonattan Vegas tied for eighth in the Wyndham Championship last week and begins the FedExCup Playoffs at The Barclays.

Vegas is 108th in the FEC standings entering the week, and must crack the top 100 when he departs Ridgewood CC if he is to advance to TPC Boston next week. His play has been feast-or-famine of late, missing four of his last six cuts but scoring a T3 at the John Deere Classic to go with his T8 at Sedgefield CC last week. He has the firepower to make a deep run in the Playoffs, but he can't afford a slip up this week.

Jhonattan Vegas turned in a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship, ending the tournament at 14-under 266.

Vegas picked up four birdies on the front nine at Sedgefield CC, all from inside six feet. He added seven pars and a 14'3" birdie on the par-4 17th in his trip around the back nine before surrendering his lone bogey at the par-4 18th. Power was part of the key to his success, ranking first in driving distance. While he began the week sitting on the FedExCup bubble at 124th, he easily punched his ticked into the Playoffs.

Jhonattan Vegas spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 8-under 132 at the midpoint, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

This was arguably his more important round since meeting the terms of his Major Medical Extension at the John Deere Classic five weeks ago. Vegas arrived in Greensboro slotted 124th in the FedExCup standings, so making the cut was the first goal. He hit only 13 greens in regulation today, but he cleaned up perfectly and added five birdies. The set was highlighted by a 20-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-3 12th. His longest conventional conversion ran 12-and-a-half feet at the par-4 14th.

Jhonattan Vegas enters the Wyndham Championship ranked 124th in the FedExCup standings.

Vegas is playing this season after meeting the requirements of his Major Medical Extension at the John Deere Classic in July. He must finish this week ranked inside the top 125 in either the FEC standings or the PGA TOUR money list to be fully exempt on TOUR next season. At 134th on the money list, his best route is clearly the FEC. While he doesn't need to do anything overly dramatic to secure his card, a top-25 finish would go a long way towards sealing his fate to the good. He missed the cut at Sedgefield CC in his only visit back in 2012.

With a two-way share of third place at the John Deere Classic, Jhonattan Vegas met the terms of his Major Medical Extension and will retain status for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.

The Venezuelan needed no worse than a two-way T5 to meets his goal with FedExCup points. With the 162.50 points collected, he exceeded it by 58.66. (For the record, to achieve the same objective with earnings, he needed no worse than a solo third, so he fell short of that by $8,680.) Vegas closed like a champ today, signed for a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 with six birdies, including on each of the trio of par 5s. (He hit 14 greens in regulation.) He played the par 5s in bogey-free 10-under of the week. With his MME in the rear-view mirror, he can focus on climbing the ladder in the FedExCup standings where he's now ranked 110th.

Jhonattan Vegas fired an 8-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of the John Deere Classic to reach the 54-hole mark at 13-under 200.

Vegas circled seven birdies and squared a lone bogey on his first 16 holes at TPC Deere Run before his biggest highlight of the round. He found the green in two at the par-5 17th and converted the 16'6" eagle putt before ending his day with a par at 18. Noteable birdies included a 12'4" putt at the par-3 third and a 10'7" attempt on the par-4 14th. A steady putter has been the key to his week, gaining just shy of two strokes per round on average and ranking inside the top 10 in strokes gained.

Jhonattan Vegas turned in a pair of 1-over-par 71s at The Greenbrier Classic and missed the cut by two strokes.

He went just 3-for-26 in birdie chances while squaring five bogeys at The Old White TPC. It's just his fifth MC in 18 starts this season, but he arrived sitting 149th in FedExCup points. This short week also leaves him with three starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $281,280 or 103.84 FedExCup points and retain status. Look for him again at next week's John Deere Classic.
Fri, Jul 4, 2014 06:56:00 PM

At 6-over-par 73-75=148, Jhonattan Vegas will miss the cut at the Quicken Loans National by three strokes.

Every strokes counts, but the Venezuelan can point directly at the par-4 18th hole in today's second round as the primary reason why he has the weekend off. It was his ninth of the day. After splitting the fairway, he found a greenside bunker on approach. His blast bounded over the green and into the water. After taking a drop, he'd eventually two-putt for a 7. Elsewhere in his two rounds, he traded six birdies with nine bogeys. It's just his fourth MC in 17 starts this season. He'll head to The Greenbrier Classic with four starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $281,280 or 103.84 FedExCup points and retain status.
