First-round leader and second-round co-leader Marc Leishman rebounded for a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to conclude his second appearance (T23/2013) on 13-under 279, up five spots to T7, 11 in arrears of champion Dustin Johnson. UPDATE: Leishman was the only player with multiple bogey-free rounds (69/R2; 67/R4).
The World No. 12 mustered just one circle en route to a Saturday 76, knocking him out of contention, but showed resilience with a six-birdie showing secured a top 10. After kicking off in 67-69-76, he began T12 on 7-under, one short of the overnight top 10 but a distant nine back of 54-hole leader Johnson. The 34-year-old found 10 (of 15) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, circling holes 4, 5, 8 (from 17'6"), 9, 11 and 18. He registered 1.643 putts per GIR and 3.075 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. This will be Leishman's second top 10 of the season in three starts, joining P2 at THE CJ CUP. Jan 7 - 9:04 PM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 12 Marc Leishman ballooned to a 3-over-par 38-38=76 in the third round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, falling 11 spots to T12 on 7-under 212, nine back of 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson, who shot 66.

After opening in 67-69, the 34-year-old led after R1 and co-led with Brian Harman at the midpoint. On nine (of 15) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he mustered a lone birdie-3 at 16 (from 23 inches), against four bogey-5s at 4, 7, 10 (3-putt from 54'3") and 13. The Aussie lost 0.728 strokes approaching-the-green, still No. 1 in that stat with a cumulative 5.233, and lost 1.286 strokes around-the-green. He posted a dismal 2.071 putts per GIR and -2.696 SG: Putting, needing 36 total putts.
Jan 6 - 7:42 PM

Overnight leader and World No. 12 Marc Leishman smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions for a 36-hole tally of 10-under 136, good for a share of the lead with playing competitor Brian Harman, who shot 68.

This is the 34-year-old's fourth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 227 career starts, previously 1-for-3 converting. The one conversion came at the 2017 BMW Championship, the penultimate Playoffs event, which he won in wire-to-wire fashion and with a tournament-record aggregate of 261 (23-under-par). The Aussie, who carded the only blemish-free lap on Day 2, found 10 (of 15) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.754 strokes off-the-tee and 1.381 approaching-the-green. He's pacing the field in SG: Approach (5.961) and SG: Tee-to-Green (5.592), though struggling a bit around-the-green at -1.150 (27th of 34). The Virginia Beach, Virginia, resident circled four at holes 2 (from 15'0"), 8, 14 and 18, registering 1.846 putts per GIR and -0.209 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.
Jan 5 - 10:31 PM

Marc Leishman made quick work of The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort with a 6-under-par 32-35=67 during round one of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, good for sole possession of the lead at the end of day one.

The in-form Aussie putt on a ball-striking clinic today. Despite the blustery conditions, he gave himself 14 birdies looks from inside 20 feet. More notable, six of those were from inside 10 feet. Walking off the course, he was gaining 4.454 strokes approaching-the-green. Leishman wasn't phased by the bermuda greens that were slightly infected ahead of the event. While many others were struggling on the greens, Leishman found a way to knock home three putts from outside 12 feet. Entering the week with four top 5s in his last six worldwide starts, there is no reason to expect a letdown as the week progresses.
Jan 4 - 9:55 PM

Pre-tournament betting favorite Marc Leishman shot the low round of the day, a 7-under-par 32-33=65, to end day two of the Australian PGA Championship tied at the top with compatriot Adam Bland on 12-under 132.

At 13th in the world, Leishman is the highest-ranked player in the field at Royal Pines and his performance so far is reflecting it. On an eventful opening nine, he started with birdies at 10 and 11 but gave one back at 12. He added another circle on 13 before making eagle-3 at 15 for the second day running. After a birdie-bogey exchange on 8 and 9 he splashed further red at 1, 3 and 5 before parring his way to the clubhouse. "There's obviously a long way to go," he said. "Playing in front of friends and family, that's always nice no matter where it is. Here there seems to be more friends and family because it's a bit closer to home. I went and watched the Australian PGA for the first time when it was at Victoria. You go there and of course one day you hope you're going to play in it and possibly win it. But if it was to happen, it would be pretty huge." Through 36 holes, Leishman ranks 3rd for Driving Accuarcy, 3rd for GIR and 1st for Putts Per GIR.

Marc Leishman turned on the after-burners late on to fire a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in round one of his home Australian PGA Championship at Royal Pines.

That's just one swing more than leaders Jordan Zunic and Adam Bland. A double winner on the PGA TOUR this season, Leishman served up a mixed bag over his opening 14 holes. He made a nice run of three straight birdies around the turn (8, 9 and 10) after an early gain at 5 but also swallowed bogeys at 2, 7 and 14 to sit 1-under with four to play. However, he chipped in for eagle-3 at 15 and picked up further shots at 16 and 18 to shoot up the leaderboard and end his round in a tie for third. Leishman split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation on day one, taking 27 putts.

Despite the presence of major winners Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia, the bookies have Marc Leishman at the top of their odds charts for the Australian PGA at Royal Pines.

That's a reflection of the Aussie's stellar 2017 which saw him win twice on the PGA TOUR, the first at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the most recent at September's BMW Championship. He was also runner-up in the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES two starts ago. Leishman finished T21 in this event last year and was T11 in both 2013 and 2014. He told europeantour.com, "You grow up and these are the tournaments that you watch as a kid and you see your idols playing them and winning them and you want to win them. I'm no different. The course is great. It just seems to be getting better and better every year. The grasses are really coming in and the greens are pretty receptive this year, which is good." Despite some solid showings on home soil, Leishman hasn't had a top five in Australia since 2009 but this is surely the time for him to put that right.

Making his first start of the season, World No. 16 Marc Leishman fashioned a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the final round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to match overnight co-leader Justin Thomas on 9-under 279, and then lost to Thomas' birdie on the second playing of the par-5 18th in extra time, dropping his record to 0-2 in playoffs.

After opening in 66-72-71, the 33-year-old began T3 on 7-under, two shy of Thomas. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he found 11 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, recording 1.700 putts per GIR, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 1.706. The Aussie, who celebrates his birthday on Oct. 24th, circled six at holes 1, 2, 9, 12, 14 and 18, taking some luster off with four squares at 5, 7, 8 and 17. In sudden death, the duo matched pars (after errant tee shots) but Leishman would drink his second in the sequel and Thomas walked through the door. This is his fifth runner-up in 225 career events, first since a playoff loss at the 2015 Open. In his last four starts, the Virginia Beach, Virginia, resident has three top-3 finishes, highlighted by his third TOUR title at the BMW Championship.

World No. 16 Marc Leishman orchestrated a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to reach 7-under 209, up three spots to T3, two shy of 54-hole co-leaders Justin Thomas and Scott Brown.

The 33-year-old is a three-time winner on TOUR in 224 career events, most recently a wire-to-wire victor at the 2017 BMW Championship two starts ago. Two of his wins are come from behind, erasing three- and six-shot deficits at the 2017 Arnold Palmer and the 2012 Travelers, respectively. After kicking off in 66-72, the Aussie began T6 on 6-under, three adrift of 36-hole leader Luke List. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he outpaced four bogeys with five birdies on 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.583 putts per GIR. Leishman will play out of the penultimate threesome again in the finale.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 16 Marc Leishman sleepwalked to an even-par 35-37=72 in the second round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES, falling four places to T6 on 6-under 138.

The 33-year-old, who celebrates his birthday in four days (Oct. 24th), began in a five-way T2 after an opening 66, three off the pace, and while he tread water, so did the lead. Signing for a three-birdie three-bogey effort, he's still three back, trailing new leader Luke List. The Virginia Beach, Virginia, resident landed nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.929 putts per GIR. On a cool, breezy day, the field scoring average was 2.4 strokes higher in R2 than R1 at 73.346, so he despite backing up on the leaderboard, he actually gained strokes on the field.

Marc Leishman fired out of the gate with a 6-under-par 36-30=66 during the opening round of the inaugural CJ CUP at Nine Bridges, staking out an early share of second place, just three off the early pacesetter Justin Thomas.

The Aussie wasn't firing on all cylinders to open the round, trading three bogeys with a pair of birdies in his opening eight holes. That is where he turned into high gear, playing the final three par 5s at 4-under-par while adding three other birdies on his way into the clubhouse. The highlight came at the closing par-5 18th where he walked off with an eagle. Leishman ended last season with finishes of 3rd-WIN-T24 and is picking up right where he left off as this tournament is his first event of the new campaign. Before the event, the Aussie recalled his days of playing on the KPGA Korean Tour, citing plenty of fond memories in Korea. He is using that to his advantage early on in the week.

Overnight leader and World No. 22 Marc Leishman, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the BMW Championship to wrap on 23-under 261, good for a five-shot wire-to-wire win over runners-up Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler, bumps three spots to 4th in the FedExCup standings, and returns to the TOUR Championship for a second time (T28/2009). UPDATE: Leishman jumps seven places to a career-high 15th in OWGR.

The 33-year-old bags his third TOUR title in 223 career events, second this season in 24 starts (Arnold Palmer). He claims his first FEC Playoffs win in 27 overall postseason tries, matches the tournament record (to par) set by Dustin Johnson last year, and records a new aggregate scoring record, eclipsing 262 by 2015 champ Jason Day and 2007 champ Tiger Woods. After opening in 62-64-68, the Aussie began with a five-shot lead over Fowler and Day and hit seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. He squared two bogey-5s at Nos. 5 and 13 (3-putt from 69'7"), outpaced by six birdies, including three in his last four holes, capping with a 19-footer from the fringe at the 72nd hole. Leishman posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.309 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. He improves to 1-for-2 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

First- and second-round leader Marc Leishman navigated a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the BMW Championship to post 19-under 194, good for a five-shot lead over Rickie Fowler and playing competitor Jason Day, who shot 70.

The World No. 22 arrived off solo 3rd at the Dell Technologies where he was a 54-hole co-leader and closed in 1-under 70. This is now his second 54-hole lead/co-lead in 223 career events and is the fourth player this season to amass a five-shot lead (or more) thru 54 holes with the previous three going on to victory. After kicking off in 62-64, the 33-year-old led by three over Fowler and Day, and hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 0.822 SG: Tee-to-Green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 4 and 7, outpaced by five circles at 3, 5, 8, 13 and 18, three from between 13 and 21 feet. The Aussie recorded 1.545 putts per GIR and 0.598 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. He's projecting at 4th in the FedExCup standings and chasing his second win of the season (Arnold Palmer) and third career (2012, Travelers).

Overnight leader and World No. 22 Marc Leishman painted a 7-under-par 31-33=64 in the second round of the BMW Championship to post 16-under 126, good for a three-shot lead over Jason Day and Rickie Fowler, and tying the low round of the day with Fowler.

After kicking off with a career-tying-low 62, the 33-year-old led by two over three players. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.382 strokes approaching-the-green but gained 4.108 around-the-green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 4.447. The Aussie also gained 4.285 strokes tee-to-green, pacing the field there also thru 36 holes (7.993). He squared a lone bogey-4 at 17, outpaced by eight circles at 1, 7-9, 13, 15, 16 and 18, posting 1.545 putts per GIR and 0.181 SG: Putting, with 24 total putts.. Leishman's split included two hole-out birdies at 7 (from 51 yards) and 8, and two conventional from between nine and 14 feet. This is his third 36-hole lead/co-lead in 223 career starts, first since the 2016 Travelers, and is 0-for-2 converting.

Marc Leishman put on a clinic in round one of the BMW Championship, penciling a 9-under-par 30-32=62 to lead the way early at Conway Farms Golf Club.

The Aussie was a 54-hole co-leader at the Dell Technologies Championship before fading on the back nine on Sunday. He didn't let the poor finish sour his spirits. His putting, in particular, stayed red-hot. Throughout the day, Leishman sprinkled in four putts from outside nine feet, including a pair from the 19-to-22 foot range. That was good for 3.225 strokes gained putting at the time he signed his scorecard. If the Aussie keeps hitting greens at a reasonable rate, he'll be tough to catch because his flat stick is en fuego at the moment (+7.5 strokes gained putting at the Dell Tech). Leishman was scoring early and often today, but still finished three off the course record (59) set by Jim Furyk back in 2013.
