Marc Leishman tied for fourth in the 2013 Masters and will try and back that up this week.

After a missed cut in 2010, The Aussie entered his second Masters with plenty of question marks. He opened with a 6-under-par 66 and looked to be a man to beat early. After failing to break par in the subsequent three rounds, he settled for the T4. Looking back, that 66 is his only sub-par round in six tries, so invest with caution.

Marc Leishman returns to the Valspar Championship for his usual stop.

This marks the first action for the Aussie since losing out of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in the first round. In fact, after opening the season with a promising fifth at the Sony Open and T2 at the Farmers Insurance Open, he suffered a missed cut and a T59 in his two events leading up to the Match Play. Even though he's made three of four cuts on the Copperhead Course, he's never done better than a T38 last year.

Marc Leishman wrapped up the Farmers Insurance Open with a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round to finish in a five-way tie for second place at 8-under 280, one swing more than champion Scott Stallings.

This was just more of the same of late from the Aussie who finished no worse than T11 in his previous three starts worldwide. At Torrey Pines, he co-led the field in greens in regulation (56) and suffered only four bogeys and one double all week. While he came up one short, he authored a little drama at the par-5 18th hole today. Firing from 100 yards out, his approach came to rest just inside four feet, but it had to look really good from his vantage point. True to form, he rolled in the birdie for what was just his fourth on the weekend.

Marc Leishman signed for an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open and finds himself one off the 54-hole lead at 7-under 209.

Torrey Pines South played like a U.S. Open on Saturday, and the Aussie responded with a scorecard that would be acceptable in almost any playing of the season's second major championship. He birdied the par-4 fifth, then bogeyed the par-3 16th. That was it. The other 16 holes were boring pars. Only once a victor on the PGA TOUR, he'll try and return to the winner's circle for a second time on Sunday.
Jan 25 - 5:59 PM

Marc Leishman posted a 1-under-par 33-38=71 at Torrey Pines South in his second round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

He collected 11 (of 14) fairways hit and 15 greens in regulation en route to three birdies to absorb a double bogey. The gaffe occurred at the par-4 fifth hole where he split the fairway but landed his approach in a greenside bunker from which he need to whacks to escape. Two putts from 4'7" exacerbated the issue. His longest of the par breakers measured just 11'3" at No. 13. He's 7-under 137 at the halfway point and only three off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Leishman has missed only five GIR thus far.
Jan 24 - 5:32 PM

Marc Leishman spun a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open on the North Course at Torrey Pines.

He tied for second here in 2010 and chased it with a T9 in 2011, but the Aussie has been playing inspiring golf for a couple of months now. His latest noisemaker was a solo fifth at Waialae, a track where he already had success. Today's walk featured 16 greens in regulation and seven birdies against a lone bogey at the par-3 12h hole. He signed his card sitting two strokes adrift of the overnight lead.
Jan 23 - 7:14 PM

Marc Leishman has always found Waialae Country Club to his liking, and polished off a solid week at the Sony Open with a final-round 5-under-par 34-31=65 to take the clubhouse lead at 13-under 267.

The Aussie has never finished worse than T27 in his four previous trips, so his success should not be a surprise to anyone. His final round was weak early, with bogeys on two of his first six holes. He heated up to birdie four consecutive, beginning with the par-3 seventh. After a bogey at 13, he again responded with four birdies on his final five holes. It's unlikely that he's done enough to win or join a playoff, but he's becoming an absolute play in most fantasy formats in this event.

Marc Leishman spun a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach the midpoint in 9-under 131, one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He is putting on a magic show at Waialae this week. For the second straight day, he eyed only 10 opportunities to break par. Not only did the Aussie circle an eagle (from 12'6" at the par-5 ninth hole) and five birdies, but he absorbed just one bogey, that a 5 at No. 6. Four of his birdies disappeared from outside 10 feet, including gems of 22'9" and 23'7" at the 11th and 14th holes, respectively. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting split sat north of a stout 3.125.
Jan 10 - 6:40 PM

Marc Leishman carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, finishing four strokes off the overnight lead.

Not only does the Aussie have a sparkling record at Waialae -- 4-for-4 with one top 10 and another pair of top 20s -- but he arrived this week having finished T11 and T7 in two events in his homeland in November. He landed only 10 greens in regulation today but snatched a pair of birdies from off the greens at the 15th and 18th holes. The first rolled in from the fringe from four yards away; the second dropped in from a lie in the rough just six yards out. Leishman added birdies of 39'2" at No. 1, 13'6" at 5 and 26'2" at the par-3 seventh to offset a pair of bogeys in between.
Jan 9 - 11:20 PM

Marc Leishman entered the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with expectations unlike any he's experienced in his career.

The Aussie's first Presidents Cup experience essentially ushered in the season, but one could look back to his T4 at the Masters back in April, which included an opening-round, 6-under-par 66, as the catalyst for his ascension. While he made just one of two cuts early in the 2013-14 season, he spent some time in his homeland and tied for 11th at the Australia PGA Championship and a T7 at the Talisker Masters. He's certainly a player to watch as the season progresses.

Marc Leishman crafted a 7-under-par 35-30=65 in his second round of the CIMB Classic.

The Aussie missed the cut at the Open to begin his season, and that was immediately on the heels of a loss at his first Presidents Cup. He then opened his week in Malaysia yesterday with an even-par 72 during which he erased two birdies with two bogeys. Today's loop was setting up similarly, but he went birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie at holes 3-7 before finishing bogey-birdie. Suddenly 7-under 137 through two rounds, he's only two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He's a great example of how it's always possible to make noise quickly in a 78-man field with no cut.

Marc Leishman fended off Matt Kuchar 1-up to win his Sunday singles match at the Presidents Cup and narrow the gap to 17-13 in favor of the Americans.

The U.S. needs just one more win to clinch the Cup, but the Aussie decided it wouldn't come on his watch. He won four holes to Kuchar's three, with Leishman's highlight coming when he nearly aced the par-3 eighth. His ball plugged three inches from the cup for a conceded birdie. The rookie for the International squad compiled a 2-2-0 record.

Marc Leishman and Angel Cabrera paired to take out Brandt Snedeker and Webb Simpson 2 and 1 in foursomes action that concluded early Saturday morning.

The marks Leishman's first point as a member of the International Team, as he and Cabrera fell to to Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar in fourball action on Thursday. This match was all square through 14 holes, and was really the only one where the verdict was in doubt when darkness suspended action Friday evening. The Internationals birdied the 15th and 17th holes to close out Snedeker and Simpson.

On the heels of his selection to the Presidents Cup, Marc Leishman prepares to tee it up in the BMW Championship.

His trip to Conway Farms could serve as his final live action before turning his attention to Muirfield Village for his first Presidents Cup. He enters the week raned 58th in the FedExCup standings, with only those inside the top 30 advancing to the TOUR Championship for the final leg of the Playoffs. He has two top 20s in his last three starts, including a T12 at the PGA Championship and a T16 in the Deutsche Bank Championship.
