World No. 56 Marc Leishman does battle in his eighth Sony Open in Hawaii.
The 33-year-old is a perfect 7-for-7 at Waialae CC with four top 25s and two top 10s, including a personal-best 5th-place finish in 2014. At the 2014 edition, he was T2 thru 36 holes (67-64), but a third-round 71 derailed his chances, closing with 65. The Aussie's scoring average in 28 rounds on the par-70 layout is 67.68, highlighted by a 62/R3 in 2015, which matched his career low on TOUR (x3). He opened this season with solo 5th at the CIMB (69-65-71-66) and tacked on a T24 at the OHL Classic. Leishman, who resides in Virginia Beach, Virginia, posted a T21 at the Australian PGA Championship six weeks ago in his most recent action. Jan 11 - 4:36 PM

Marc Leishman manhandled El Camaleón Golf Club on his way toward a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in round two of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, climbing to 7-under 135 at halftime.

The Aussie opened the day in a share of 52nd place but a rare feat of posting an eagle and hole-in-one on back-to-back holes certainly rocketed him up the leaderboards. It may not seem as rare since Aaron Wise accomplished the same thing yesterday. The ace took place on the par-3 eighth hole from 134 yards with a sand wedge. Other than the pair of eagles, Leishman traded four birdies and two bogeys. On the week he ranks 104th in driving accuracy (14-of-28 fairways) which is not ideal at El Camaleón where hazards lurk around every corner. This is the 33-year-old's second trip to Mayakoba resort, but first since a missed cut in the 2009 edition.

World No. 54 Marc Leishman twirled a 6-under-par 31-35=66 during round four of the CIMB Classic, closing out the week on 17-under 271 which puts him in solo-fifth on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.

The Aussie remained a GIR-machine, pelting 16 during his final lap of TPC Kuala Lumpur this week. Overall, he splattered 59-of-72 greens on the week, good for T4 at the moment. Thanks to the strong iron play, Leishman was able to splash home 26 birdies this week, settling for seven bogeys and a double along the way. This goes in the books as his career best at the CIMB Classic, previously a T29 in last year's edition. Making his 200th career PGA TOUR start this week, this will also go down as his 26th top-10 finish.

Marc Leishman loaded up on birdies en route to a 7-under-par 33-32=65 during round two of the CIMB Classic, reaching 10-under 134 at the midpoint, good for T6 on the leaderboard.

The Aussie opened his week with a 3-under 69 to land just inside the top 20. Today, he turned up to volume with eight birdies, offset by just one lone bogey at the par-4 13th. Leishman was on fire, tee-to-green, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and missing just one green in regulation. On the week the Aussie has collected 13 birdies, but seven of birdies today came on holes he parred or bogeyed yesterday. He really played TPC Kuala Lumpur completely different, round-over-round. This 65 matches his career low at TPC KL (R2/2014) and he's well on his way to a new personal best at the CIMB (previously T29 last year).

Marc Leishman faltered out of the gates before rebounding en route to a 3-under-par 30-38=68 during round one of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Aussie kicked his week off at No. 10 and squared bogeys at 11, 15, and 16 before making the turn at 3-over. From there, he turned on the scoring machine and circled birdies in three of the first four holes on his inward nine. Leishman also saved par from 23'2" during that stretch, to keep the momentum rolling. The 32-year-old wasn't done yet, though, as he closed out with a three-hole birdie train that included putts from 25'4", 11'6", and 8'3". He walked off the course gaining 3.2 strokes putting on the round. Entering the week at 71st in the FedExCup race, Leishman will need to keep his foot on the gas in order to qualify for next week's BMW Championship.

Past champ Marc Leishman rallied for a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship for a four-day total of 10-under 270, up five places to T10 with play still in progress.

The 2012 champ co-led thru 36 holes with three others (65-68), but a third-round 71 derailed his chances. He rebounded with a six-birdie two-bogey finale on nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. The 32-year-old played his first 10 holes in even-par, exchanging two birdies with two bogeys, before playing his final eight holes in blemish-free 4-under, circling Nos. 11, 13 and 15, and walking-off with a 10'9" birdie-3 at the 18th. If the top 10 holds, it'll be just his second of the season in 22 starts (T5, Northern Trust Open).

Overnight quad-leader and past champ Marc Leishman back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 34-37=71 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to post 6-under 204, down 14 places to T15, nine in arrears to 54-hole leader Daniel Berger.

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, the 2012 winner mustered just two birdies against three bogeys on 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. He posted 1.723 SG: Off-the-Tee and thru 54 holes, leads in that stat with a cumulative 3.868. Unfortunately for the Aussie, he was negative in all other strokes gained categories, including -1.754 SG: Approach-to-the-Green and -2.171 SG: Around-the-Green, 70th (of 73 players) in the latter.

Past champ Marc Leishman patched together a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to post 7-under 133, up three places and good for the 36-hole lead with three others.

This is only the second time this season that there's been as many as four co-leaders thru 36 holes, joining the Shriners back in October. Since threesomes off split tees for R3 and Leishman was the last to post, he'll play out of the penultimate group on Saturday morning. The 2012 champ split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.692 putts per GIR. He began off No. 10 tee and squared the 11th and the fifth, but outpaced those with birdies on holes 12 (17'5"), 13, 4 and a walk-off from 39 inches at the par-4 ninth.

Past champ Marc Leishman led off his week at the Travelers Championship with a 5-under-par 33-32=65 to sit one stroke off the early pace set by Vaughn Taylor.

The 2012 Travelers champ arrived with a flawless 5-for-5 record at TPC River Highlands and continued that strong play today. He split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation. Leishman kept things well-rounded by rolling in quite a few key putts to go along with the great ball-striking. Most notable were 12'9" and 23'3" birdie splashes at the par-4 third and par-4 fourth holes. Leishman entered the week with four straight finishes of T39 or worse, but he's off and running this week at a familiar venue.

The final round of the 98th PGA Championship is scheduled to begin at 8:40 a.m. ET (off No. 1 tee) in nine-minute intervals, staying in the same pairings as Round 3.

Final-round tee times are scheduled between 8:40 am and 3:25 pm. The last tournament to enter the finale without re-pairing was the Sanderson Farms back in November, which was a Monday finish. If the PGA Championship extends to Monday, it'll be the sixth unscheduled Monday finish this season with the most recent the Zurich Classic (reduced to 54 holes). Marc Leishman was not among the 37 lucky players to get their respective third rounds completed on Saturday. However, he got 65 whacks in before plays was abandoned. The Aussie returned Sunday morning to face a 12'6" birdie try on the par-5 18th, but missed, settling for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 and a 54-hole total of 3-under 207. He's currently up 31 spots on the leaderboard to T17.

Marc Leishman recorded just the second bogey-free round of day two when he navigated Royal Troon Golf Club with a 2-under-par 34-35=69, safely making it through the cut at 1-over 143.

The Aussie found just eight fairways off the tee but still managed 14 greens in regulation. Leishman is a self-proclaimed wind player, so it's no surprise to see him battle the freshening winds with such ease. He picked off birdies at both of the outward par 5s and scribbled pars on all other 16 holes. What makes this round so special is that he's just the second to record a bogey-free round on Friday, with Søren Kjeldsen (-3) being the other. This also goes in the books as the fifth blemish-free round of the week (Mickelson, Kaymer, Finau in R1). Leishman arrived with top 5s in each of his last two Open Championship appearances and now has a shot at three in a row if he can make a big move over the weekend.

Marc Leishman circled six birdies en route to a 4-under-par 33-34=67 during the opening round of this week's Quicken Loans National.

The Aussie started on the back nine and needed an 8'8" putt just to save par at the par-4 10th hole. He carried that momentum on the greens into a birdie on the par-4 12th hole, converting from 7'10". He swallowed two bogeys before making the turn, one as a result of missing a 4-footer for par. He rebounded nicely from that by sticking his 160-yard approach shot to 16 inches for a tap-in birdie at the par-4 18th hole. Leishman cruised home with a blemish-free 3-under 33 on his inward nine and currently sits three strokes off the leader, Jon Rahm, as he preps for his Friday morning tee time.

Marc Leishman signed for a 1-under-par 33-36=69 after the second round of the U.S. Open to post even-par 140, currently T10 on the leaderboard and four shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson.

This is the Aussie's fifth appearance with a lone cash of T51 in 2011. He opened with a two-birdie three-bogey 71 on seven (of 14) fairways, 11 greens in regulation and totaling 29 putts. The 32-year-old, who arrived off a T13 and T11 in his last two starts, landed eight fairways in R2, peppered 14 GIR and took 31 whacks with the flat stick. He went out in blemish-free 2-under, circling the par-4 second from 12 feet and the par-5 fourth from 17 feet. Leishman stalled out a bit after the break, outpacing birdies on 14 and 17 with bogeys at 10, 11 (3-putt from 36 feet) and 15.

Marc Leishman got off to a quick start and then held on for a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the final round of the Memorial to post 11-under 277, up 21 on the live leaderboard to T14. UPDATE: With play completed, Leishman finished in an nine-way T11 for his sixth top 20 of the season in 16 starts and second straight.

This was Leishman's eighth straight appearance at Muirfield Village with a best (and only top 10) of T5 last year. He began the final round on 7-under (T35) after opening in 69-71-69. The 32-year-old raced out with birdies on Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 7, but played his final 11 holes in all pars. For the week, he totaled 18 birdies, five bogeys and one double. The Aussie's double bogey on the par-3 16th in R3 was his only blemish over his final 36 holes. Dating back to last week's T13-finish at the DDI, he's now connected eight straight red numbers.

Australia's Marc Leishman makes his final preparations for the 80th Masters and has a Thursday tee time of 10:43 a.m. EDT with Sweden's Henrik Stenson and Hall of Famer and 3-time champ Phil Mickelson of the United States.

Leishman qualified for his fourth Masters three different ways but most notably via last year's three-man four-hole aggregate playoff loss at the Open Championship -- he shot a final-round 6-under 66 to get into the playoff. The P2 supplanted his previous best finish in a major, T4 at the 2013 Masters. Overall, it was his third top 5 in 17 majors, including a T5 at the 2014 U.S. Open. The 32-year-old's T4 in 2013 is his only cash at ANGC, missing the cut in 2010 and 2014. He qualified but did not play in last year's edition due to his wife being seriously ill. The Aussie is 7-for-9 on the season with three top 25s and one top 10 (T5, Northern Trust). He was eliminated in the Group Stage at the WGC-Match Play with an 0-2-1 record.
