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. Nov 9 - 1:50 AM

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 Frys.com 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.
Aug 10 - 3:14 PM

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.
Aug 3 - 7:15 PM

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.
Aug 2 - 4:56 PM

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.
Jul 31 - 4:59 PM

Marc Leishman spun a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of The Open Championship to establish a new clubhouse lead at 12-under 276.

The Aussie was on fire at Royal Liverpool on Sunday, circling eight birdies to just one bogey. He was perfect on the par 5s, picking up birdies on all four and narrowly missing an eagle attempt on the 18th. While there are only two players on the course currently lower than his mark, they each have a pair of par 5s to play. It's unlikely he has posted a low enough number to factor into the decision.
Jul 20 - 12:23 PM

Marc Leishman answered his opening 69 at The Open Championship with an even-par 37-35=72 in the second round.

The Aussie got about as much out of this round as he could to add to his legacy as a great player in challenging conditions. Consider that he split only five (of 14) fairways and hit nine greens, but rallied for three birdies to cancel three bogeys. Two of his par breakers came at the par-5 10th and 18th holes; he birdied both on Thursday. At 3-under 141, he's two strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Marc Leishman turned in a 3-under-par 33-36=69 for his opening round of The Open Championship.

One of the best foul-weather players on the PGA TOUR got over on Royal Liverpool on a gorgeous day. Leishman split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, suffering just one bogey (at the par-4 12th hole) to offset four birdies, three of which on par 5s. He entered the week just 1-for-3 in this tournament with a T60 at St. Andrews in 2010, but he's played well of late, so today's success is not a surprise.

Marc Leishman could only manage a 3-over-par 37-37=74 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National, but it was good for a tie for eighth at 1-under 283.

Clearly this wasn't the result he was hoping for after two birdies and one bogey on his first five holes had him in the hunt for a win, but it will have to do. His final 12 holes saw him square four bogeys without a birdie. This is his fourth top 10 of the season, and his fifth top 25 in his last six starts.
Jun 29 - 6:28 PM

Marc Leishman could only muster a 2-over-par 37-36=73 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National, falling into a tie for second at 4-under 210.

Leishman's three bogeys outpaced his lone birdie on his navigation of Congressional Country Club. Fortunately for him, high scores were the order of the day for the later groups. The 11'6" birdie on the par-4 14th was the obvious highlight. Though he split just half of his 14 fairways, he managed a respectable 12 GIR. The putter let him down, losing 1.96 strokes to the field with the flatstick.
Jun 28 - 5:55 PM

With a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Quicken Loans National, Marc Leishman grabbed outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 6-under 136.

The Aussie missed only three greens in regulation and converted five birdies at Congressional today. He opened with a beauty from 35'4" at the par-4 first and added notable rolls at Nos. 11 and 15 from 16'8" and 13'1", respectively. However, the highlight occurred at the par-5 ninth where he holed out for birdie from 127 yards. He found trouble left off the tee and had to punch out. Eventually knocking his third into the fairway to what proved to be the perfect distance.
