Marc Leishman returned to TPC Louisiana this morning to polish off a 9-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of Louisiana.
Leishman was laying 4 in front of the green at the par-5 18th hole when the horn sounded on Friday afternoon due to inclement weather. When play was called for the day, he had to return at 8:00 a.m. CT today to finish the hole and the round. Alas, the Aussie couldn't salvage par to tie the course record. But the bogey was barely a stain on an incredible round, especially when you consider where his focus was in recent weeks. Overall, Leishman hit 15 greens in regulation and converted 10 birdies. Half of the par breakers rolled 10-14 feet conventionally, but he also holed out from lies off the green from 18 yards at the par-3 ninth and six yards at the par-4 16th. At 7-under 137, he's just four swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Apr 25 - 9:12 AM

Marc Leishman lapped TPC Louisiana in 2-over-par 38-36=74 in today's opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

All things considered, this wasn't bad even though he's 10 strokes off the clubhouse lead. The Aussie squared four bogeys, including a 6 at the 11th hole, but found a pair of birdie-4s coming home. Today's loop wasn't about the score as much as the return to normalcy as a touring professional. It was just three weeks ago when his wife nearly died after battling an illness. Regardless of what happens the rest of the way in NOLA, Leishman is expected to make the trip to California for next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship. He's currently 58th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Marc Leishman is included in the published field of next week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

This is great news. It implies that his wife is stable and recovering from her recent health scare. He hasn't played since missing the cut at Bay Hill and he hasn't cashed since a T51 at The Honda Classic. In his only previous appearance at TPC Louisiana, he missed the cut in 2009.

Marc Leishman withdrew from the 79th Masters today to be with his wife, who is recovering from a serious illness.

"Thanks to an incredible team of doctors and nurses, Audrey appears to be on the road to full recovery and our two young children remain blessed to have the world’s best mum in their lives," Leishman told the Australian Associated Press. "We ask that you keep Audrey in your thoughts and prayers, and I wish my best to all the competitors for a great 2015 Masters." Audrey was in the hospital with pneumonia. Doctors put her into a medically induced coma to battle other infections. Given the severity of that and its timing to the season's first major, Marc's decision not to play is not a surprise.

Marc Leishman's appearance in next week's Masters is in doubt as his wife battles pneumonia.

Audrey Leishman was placed in a medically induced coma in a hospital near home in Virginia. Doctors want to isolate and treat all infections. "Our family appreciates everyone's thoughts and concerns," said Marc Leishman. "We ask that everyone respect our privacy through this difficult period. Please keep Audrey in your prayers." He tied for fourth at Augusta National in 2013, but missed last year's cut. Even if he wasn't preoccupied with his wife's situation, the Aussie's form wouldn't trigger any interest in the season's first major. His only payday in his last four starts was as a result of a T51 at The Honda Classic.

Marc Leishman will give it a go at this week's Valspar Championship.

The Aussie has been largely silent this season. He's picked off only one top 25 in seven starts, and that was three months ago at the WGC-HSGC Champions (solo ninth). His experience at Copperhead can't hurt as he's survived four straight cuts, but he hasn't finished better than T38 in 2013. Expect Leishman to reemerge as an option when the PGA TOUR slides over to Texas in a couple of weeks. Let's just hope he's able to make the trip with a little success in tow.

Marc Leishman fashioned a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines North.

When we checked in on the Aussie this morning, Leishman needed to play the par-5 18th hole on the South Course to complete his lid-lifter. He signed for an even-par 36-36=72. Sliding quickly over to the North, he missed only one green in regulation and buried six birdies to post 6-under 138 at the halfway point, good for a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. In short, he did what he needed to do on the easier track to make a run on the weekend. At the time he signed his card, Leishman co-led the field with 11 birdies.
Feb 6 - 5:23 PM

The resumption of the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open has been moved to 9:00 a.m. PT, 30 minutes later than the scheduled restart.

Todd Lewis reported the news on Golf Channel. He added that the PGA TOUR will continue with 30-minute delays until all 36 holes are playable. The second round is now scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. Marc Leishman was one of the 42 golfers stranded at darkness on Thursday. When play gets underway, he'll polish off his opener at the par-5 18th hole on the South Course at Torrey Pines. With five birdies and five bogeys on his card, the Aussie if even through 17.

Marc Leishman blistered Waialae Country Club for nine birdies en route to an 8-under-par 32-30=62 in today's second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

His success at Waialae is hardly a surprise given a 5-for-5 slate with top 10s in the last two editions, but even the Aussie has to be impressed with today's effort. He opened with a bogey-5 at the first hole before filling the cup. He hit 13 greens in regulation to set the stage. The two most notable disappeared from 23'8" and 11'1" at Nos. 12 and 15, respectively. When it was all said and done, he equaled his career low on the PGA TOUR; in fact, today's is his third 62 on the circuit. His second polished off his lone victory (2012 Travelers Championship). The Aussie reached the halfway point in Honolulu in 8-under 132 and sits four strokes in arrears of the 36-hole co-leaders.
Jan 16 - 10:48 PM

Marc Leishman is expected to be among the contenders in this week's Sony Open.

Leishman appears to have solved the riddle of Waialae Country Club, making each of his five cuts and securing top-20 finishes in four of them. His most recent returns are the strongest, tying for ninth in 2013 and finishing alone in fifth in 2014. He is also trending well following a ninth-place finish in the WGC-HSBC Champions and a T11 in the Australian PGA Championship.
Jan 13 - 3:06 PM

Marc Leishman cruised to a 3-for-3 record during the fall and will enter 2015 ranked 52nd in the FedExCup standings.

The Aussie had a carefree Fall Series, as he finished no worse than T46 in each of his three starts. After a 2013-14 season that yielded career highs in total earnings, top 10s and podium finishes, it's safe to say that Leishman is on the rise. Entering his seventh season on TOUR, he's beginning to optimize his schedule to his preference and course history. Gamers should trot him out with confidence anytime he tees it up.

Marc Leishman shot a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions and posted 7-under 281, good for the new 72-hole clubhouse lead and a spot inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.

With 69s on the weekend, Leishman steadily pecked away to secure his first top-35 finish in seven starts. Today's walk featured four birdies against just one bogey, that a 5 at the ninth hole. The Aussie needed to toss up a solid finish to consider automatically qualifying for the Masters at the end of the year. He started this week slotted 47th in the Official World Golf Ranking and should have no issues retaining a coveted spot inside the top 50 for a few more weeks as he chases that perk.

Marc Leishman carded a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions to post 4-under 212 and sit five strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

The Aussie is making his debut at Sheshan International Golf Club. Since a solo third-place finish in the last WGC at Firestone, he's failed to crack the top 35 among five paydays in six starts. He'd have been closer to extending that drought if not for a birdie-birdie-birdie finish today. In fact, he holed five of his six birdies on his last seven holes. Leishman has split only 19 (of 42) fairways and hit just 26 greens in regulation through 54 holes, but he's limited the damages to three bogeys per round.

Marc Leishman turned in a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-34=69 for his opening round of the Open.

Leishman disappeared during the FedExCup Playoffs and hasn't recorded a top 45 since a solo third at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational over two months ago, but today's success still isn't a surprise. He's poised to elevate to the next level this season. Today at Silverado, he hit 14 greens in regulation and converted three times, the longest measuring just 12'3" at the par-4 fourth hole. The Aussie sits three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Marc Leishman begins this week at the BMW Championship ranked 47th in the FedExCup standings.

The Aussie missed the cut at The Barclays and tied for 67th at the Deutsche Bank Championship and now finds himself in danger of missing out on the TOUR Championship. He must put together a big week at Cherry Hills CC if he is to crack the top 30 in the FEC standings. Leishman was as high as 26th in the standings as recently as his third-place finish at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, but has fallen fast.
