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. Mar 9 - 8:31 PM

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.

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.

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.

Marc Leishman carded a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the PGA Championship to end the week at 1-under 283.

Leishman circled an eagle and five birdies in the finale, but his scorecard was marred by three bogeys and a double bogey. His 27'8" eagle on the par-5 seventh erased two of the early birdies, and then he went on a run with four consecutive birdies to begin his back nine at Valhalla Golf Club. A double bogey at the par-4 15th and a bogey at the par-4 16th would erase part of his handiwork before ending the week with a birdie at the par-5 18th. Considering he entered this week off back-to-back top-five finishes, his performance this week was a disappointment.

Marc Leishman posted a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to end the week alone in third place at 12-under 268.

The Aussie circled six birdies, all from inside nine feet, and handed back three bogeys on his jaunt around Firestone CC. While he hit just half of his fairways, he landed 13 GIR and gained 1.613 putts with the flat stick in what was a solid round. He's growing increasingly confident on the grandest of stages, so he should warrant heavy consideration at the PGA Championship later this week.

Marc Leishman carded a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and is alone in third place through 54 holes.

The Aussie's 9-under 201 tally was made possible by his five birdies outpacing three bogey in his third lap around Firestone CC. Three of those birdies fell from between 11 and 14 feet. He landed just 12 GIR and gained a mere .29 strokes with the flat stick on Saturday. He ranks inside the top 10 in driving distance and putting average for the week.

Overnight leader Marc Leishman chased his opening 64 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 to post 7-under 133 at the midpoint, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Aussie went out in the first pairing off the first tee at Firestone Country Club's South Course today and promptly bogeyed the par-4 opener. Overall, he hit 12 greens in regulation and trade four birdies with three bogeys. Three of his birdies disappeared from outside 16 feet, the longest stretching 36'6" at the par-4 ninth. Leishman will now get about 24 hours off as the field will re-pair for the third round on Saturday.

Marc Leishman swiped sole possession of the clubhouse lead at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 6-under-par 32-23=64.

He's been in a groove for several weeks, so today's success is merely an extension of form. However, given today's news about Dustin Johnson, the Aussie may go in the books as the most forgotten overnight leader of the season. He won't deserve the oversight, but he won't care, either. Leishman landed only 11 greens in regulation, but he converted on eight of those looks. To put some perspective on his precision, all but one birdie measured longer than 10 feet, that a gem from 25'1" at the par-4 17th.
