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. Oct 22 - 5:06 AM

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.
Oct 19 - 4:15 AM

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.
Sep 17 - 6:30 PM

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).
Sep 16 - 6:15 PM

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.
Sep 15 - 6:48 PM

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.
Sep 14 - 4:34 PM

Marc Leishman tumbled down the stretch en route to a 1-under-par 30-40=70 during the final round of the Dell Technologies Championship, settling for a third-place finish on 13-under 271.

The 54-hole co-leader showed no sign of nerves on the outward nine, circling six birdies to make the turn at 18-under for the week (leading by two at the time). An errant tee shot at the 10th forced him to take a drop but he appeared to be back on track after a big bogey-saving putt from 14'8" hit the bottom of the cup. That wasn't the case, as he proceeded to bogey the next two holes and swallowed two more bogeys at 17 and 18. Despite the sour finish, there is plenty of good to takeaway from this week. This finish goes in the books as his first top 10 at TPC Boston and also vaults him into the 7th slot of the FedExCup race. Leishman will now have a week to rest before returning to action at Conway Farms for the BMW Championship.
Sep 4 - 6:25 PM

World No. 30 Marc Leishman smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship to post 12-under 201, up five places to T1, matching the 54-hole clubhouse lead of Justin Thomas. UPDATE: With play completed, Leishman co-leads with Thomas, his first 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 222nd career start.

The 33-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation, not missing a GIR until the par-5 18th. He posted 0.887 SG: Off-the-Tee, 1.857 SG: Approach-the-Green and 0.704 SG: Around-the-Green. The Aussie, who lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia, carded six birdies at holes 2, 4, 9 and 13-15, three from between 12 and 53 feet, recording 1.647 putts per GIR and 2.486 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts. He won his second (of two) TOUR titles at the 2017 Arnold Palmer, claiming both of his two wins in come-from-behind fashion.
Sep 3 - 6:09 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 30 Marc Leishman signed for a 2-under-par 32-37=69 after the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship and a 36-hole total of 6-under 136, down four places to T6, three adrift of leader Jon Rahm.

The 33-year-old mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.487 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 2.309 around-the-green. He carded five birdies at holes 18, 1, 2, 5 and 7, slightly offset by three squares at 11, 14 and 17. The Aussie's split included four conventional, highlighted by a 69'10" bomb for birdie-3 at 5, adding a pitch-in 3 at 1 from 30'4" away. He registered 1.636 putts per GIR and -0.688 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts.
Sep 2 - 8:15 PM

Marc Leishman opened his week at the Dell Technologies Championship with a 4-under-par 32-35=67, giving him an early seat inside the top 5 on the leaderboard.

The Aussie entered with a 7-for-8 record at TPC Boston that included a pair of top 20s. On the season he ranked 20th in the FedExCup race as he attempts to have the best season of his career. Today, Leishman found 13 greens in regulation and instead leaned heavily on the putter. Before his day was done he would knock in five putts from outside seven feet, including a pair from the 27-to-29 foot range. After a missed cut last week in New York, he appears to be back on track now.
Sep 1 - 5:12 PM

World No. 31 Marc Leishman styled a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to conclude on even-par 284, up 33 places on the live leaderboard to T14 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler. UPDATE: With play completed, Leishman finished T13 and his 67 remained tied for the low lap of the day with four others.

This was the 33-year-old's seventh PGA with one prior top 25, a T12 in 2013 (Oak Hill CC). Overall, it was his 25th major appearance and seventh top 25 with a best of P2 at the 2015 Open (St. Andrews). After kicking off in 75-71-71, the Virginia Beach, Virginia, resident began T47 on 4-over, six shy of the overnight top 10. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.663 strokes approaching-the-green and 4.500 tee-to-green. The Aussie circled four at holes 5, 7, 14 and 18, three from between 13 and 15 feet, posting 1.800 putts per GIR and 0.281 SG: Putting. His effort in R4 is the only blemish-free lap of the day thus far.
Aug 13 - 5:39 PM

Marc Leishman blizted Royal Birkdale with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65 during the final round of The 146th Open, flying into a share of fourth place on the live leaderboard on 4-under 276.

The Aussie couldn't find the bottom of the cup on Friday, going birdie-free en route to a 6-over 76. He limped into the weekend, right on the cut line, but has since rattled off nine birdies and an eagle, camouflaging a pair of bogeys. Leishman split just 25 (of 56) fairways on the week but still managed 29 greens in regulation over the weekend. The 33-year-old Aussie would love to have a do-over on the windy second round, but despite the setback he is still in line to post his third top 10 at the Open Championship.
Jul 23 - 11:38 AM

World No. 35 Marc Leishman enjoyed a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National and signed for a 72-hole total of 4-under 276, up 12 spots on the live leaderboard to T6, one back of clubhouse leader Rickie Fowler. UPDATE: With play completed, Leishman finished T5, three short of a two-man playoff involving Charles Howell III and eventual champ Kyle Stanley.

After opening with 66-72-72, the 33-year-old began T18 on even-par, two back of the overnight top 10. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 2.215 SG: Tee-to-Green and 2.162 SG: Putting. The Virginia resident squared a lone bogey-5 at 11, offset by five birdies at holes 2, 8, 9, 14 and 15, three from between 10 and 21 feet, adding a long of 41'11" at the par-3 ninth. This was his eighth QLN and is right on his previous best of T7 in 2010, and will be an 11th top 25 of the season in 18 starts and fourth top 10, first since T9 at the Match Play.
