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. Apr 6 - 12:38 PM

Marc Leishman arrives at the midpoint of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at 7-under 137 after twirling a 2-under-par 35-35=70 at Bay Hill Club and Lodge.

Leishman dazzled his fans with a bogey-free opener, and stayed blemish-free through 23 holes. He lost that streak when he found a greenside bunker on the par-4 15th hole and could only blast out to 15'11" from the hole. The Aussie bounced back with a birdie on the next hole. The highlight of the round came at the par-4 eighth though, as he slammed in a 43-foot birdie putt. Unfortunately, he performed the reverse-bounce-back and bogeyed his last, the par-4 ninth hole. Despite his lackluster ball-striking today, Leishman has managed to keep his damage to just two bogeys through 36 holes, and nothing worse.
Mar 18 - 5:31 PM

Marc Leishman twirled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 to kick off his week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with an early share of the clubhouse lead.

The Aussie put himself in position to score all day, landing 11 (of 14) fairways and pelting 17 greens in regulation. That always makes it easier to go bogey-free when you just need to get up-and-down for par once in a round. His longest putt came from 13-feet on the par-4 fifth hole. It was one of his three putts that splashed in from outside seven feet today. Leishman finished T3 at the 2011 Arnold Palmer Invitational so he still has a lot of work to do if he wants to exceed his career best here at Bay Hill.
Mar 17 - 12:36 PM

Marc Leishman bobbed and weaved to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to post 1-under 215, up 19 places on the live leaderboard to T22.

The Aussie is playing the Blue Monster for just the second time (T63/2010) and carded his first round in the 60s, chasing a pair of 73s in rounds one and two. He ripped-off seven birdies in a 10-hole stretch mid-round, but sandwiched them with bogeys on Nos. 1 and 4 and a double bogey-6 on the 17th. The 32-year-old, T5 in his last start at the Northern Trust, split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, registering a total of 27 putts, matching his first-round output. His split featured five conversions from between nine and 27 feet with a long of 56'3" at the par-3 15th. Leishman currently ranks second in the field in putts per GIR with a cumulative 1.559.
Mar 5 - 2:13 PM

Marc Leishman makes his way back to this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, his first appearance here since 2010.

The Aussie opened with a 78 in his 2010 WGC-Cadillac debut before settling down to record 73-71-72 in his final three rounds. By week's end he was sitting in a share of 63rd place. Leishman is much improved since then, and arrives with a fresh T5 at the Northern Trust Open, just two weeks ago. The Aussie makes for a great fill-in play this week, but he should not be a main target as you fill out your fantasy rosters.
Mar 2 - 12:36 PM

Marc Leishman signed for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 after the final round of the Northern Trust Open for a four-day total of 12-under 272, three swings short of champion Bubba Watson.

Chasing his second TOUR title and first since the 2012 Travelers, Leishman was T5 thru 54 holes after opening in 68-67-68, two adrift of 54-hole leader Watson. He wrapped his seventh consecutive appearance with a three-birdie one-bogey showing, and settled-in the exact same position that he started, T5. The 32-year-old was bogey-free 3-under thru 15 holes, circling birdies at Nos. 1, 10 and 11, but stalled out to play his final seven holes in birdie-less 1-over. His lone retreat was a failed sand save at the par-3 16th, missing the par putt from 5'8", and proved costly, as Watson was birdieing 16 and 17. The Aussie couldn't muster a par breaker on the par-5 17th and had a nine-footer on the 18th to bump to T4, but missed. He was T33 for the week in birdies with just 15, but was T1 in bogeys with only five, including one in each of his final three loops. His T5 was his first top 10 of the season (six starts) and first since a P2 at last year's Open Championship.
Feb 21 - 9:35 PM

Marc Leishman carded a 3-under-par 34-34=68 on day three of the Northern Trust Open for a 54-hole tally of 10-under 203, two adrift of 54-hole leader Bubba Watson.

After opening his seventh straight visit to Riviera CC in 68-67, Leishman sat solo sixth, three back of 36-hole leader Jason Kokrak. Playing out of the penultimate threesome that included Watson, he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, both totals matching his R2 numbers exactly. Thru 54 holes, he's T3 in driving accuracy at 66.67 percent (28/42) and seventh in strokes gained: tee-to-green, but the key for the 32-year-old has been bogey avoidance. He squared just one on Saturday -- a failed scramble with a missed par putt from 38 inches -- and after three days, has only four dropped shots, T2 in the field in that stat. Leishman birdied the three par 5s, each from inside of 10 feet, and added a birdie-2 at the fourth from 7'10".
Feb 20 - 8:00 PM

Marc Leishman steadied his way to a 4-under-par 31-36=67 to reach the 36-hole mark of the Northern Trust Open at 7-under 135, good enough for the title of early clubhouse leader.

Slow and steady often wins the race at a tough track like Riviera Country Club. So far, so good for the Aussie who backs up his 3-under opener with another solid round today. His Friday navigation included an impressive 14 greens in regulation. It also included a lot of tap-ins for par. On the day, he splashed in just three putts from outside six feet. Leishman sits in the clubhouse as the early leader, and is in great position to contend if his flat stick decides to show up over the weekend.
Feb 19 - 2:20 PM

Marc Leishman readies for his seventh consecutive appearance at the Northern Trust Open.

The Aussie is No. 30 in the Official World Golf Ranking but it's difficult to nail-down when he's going to click. By example, he won his first European Tour title at the Nedbank Golf Challenge (in his tourney debut) for his fifth career international victory, but first since 2007. He also hasn't won on the PGA TOUR since his lone title in 2012 (Travelers). Further, his P2 at last year's Open Championship is his only top-10 finish on TOUR in his last 13 events. The 32-year-old's six prior visits to the par-71 Riviera CC have yielded a career scoring average of 71.5 (20 rounds), and a best of T15 in his 2010 tourney debut. His last three show: CUT-T59-T61 posting three red numbers in those 10 rounds.

Marc Leishman painted a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach the midpoint at 7-under 133, up 45 spots on the live leaderboard to T7.

The 32-year-old was one (of three) TOUR players to sign with Callaway in 2016 joining Hall of Famer Tom Watson and Jason Gore. In his first 36 holes since the switch from Titleist, he's just 14 (of 28) in fairways and 27/36 in greens in regulation, T78 and T29, respectively, at last check. Further, the Aussie has circled but six birdies and one eagle, but has squared just one bogey, including today's blemish-free loop. Friday's stroll, his 26th career at Waialae CC, was sleepwalking at 2-under thru 14 holes, his only par breaker an 18'3" eagle at the par-5 ninth. However, he birdied three of his final four holes, including a chip-in birdie-3 from just off the green at the 15th to get his run to the finish started.
Jan 15 - 7:08 PM

Marc Leishman landed his first European Tour win in style after posting a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Gary Player Country Club to secure victory by six shots.

The Aussie held a narrow one-stroke lead over Henrik Stenson after round three in South Africa and the Swede was still within two after both men made birdies at 9 and 10. But Leishman put the hammer down with further birdies at 13, 15 and 16 and eventually pulled six clear to finish at 19-under 269. It was a further four shots back to England's Chris Wood in third while defending champion Danny Willett shared fourth place with Victor Dubuisson, Robert Streb and Branden Grace. Leishman becomes the second Australian to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge and completes a double for his nation after compatriot Nathan Holman captured the Aussie PGA earlier in the day. "I'm really pleased that I could play as well as I did and have a little bit of a buffer there at the end," said Leishman, who was 6-for-7 in scrambling on Sunday and 16-for-17 in that category over the week.

Marc Leishman birdied his final two holes in a 6-under-par 34-32=66 and moved into a one-shot lead after three rounds of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa.

The Australian was three behind after halfway leader Henrik Stenson birdied the 15th hole but a late four-shot swing saw Leishman overtake the Swede and post the 54-hole lead of 14-under 202. Stenson, who bogeyed 16 and 18, is one back while it's a further four strokes in arrears to local man Jaco Van Zyl in third. Both he and fourth-placed Robert Streb (-9) had to settle for even-par 72s on Saturday. Leishman opened his round at Gary Player Country Club with a birdie and added another at 5 before circling an eagle-3 at the 10th. He dropped a shot at 11 but got it back at 14 before his closing par breakers at 17 and 18. The 32-year-old hit 17 greens in regulation on his way to the low round of the day.

Marc Leishman recorded his second successive 34-34=68 to remain in fourth place after 36 holes of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa.

The Aussie has made just one bogey over the first two rounds at Gary Player Country Club and will go into the weekend only three strokes behind leader Henrik Stenson. Leishman picked up his first shot at No. 2 before handing it back two holes later. He responded with a bounceback birdie at 5 and circled further red at 9, 14 and 17 to park up at 8-under 136. The 32-year-old, who lost a playoff at this summer's Open Championship, hit 13 greens in regulation, took 28 putts and was 2-for-2 in sand saves.

Marc Leishman hung up a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 on day one of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa and leads in the clubhouse.

Not a bad way to start in your very first round at the Gary Player Country Club. Leishman, who missed the cut in his home Australian Open last week, picked off birdies at 5, 9, 14 and 18 after hitting 14 greens in regulation. On the live leaderboard he's currently in a tie for third spot. That's two strokes behind Henrik Stenson who is 6-under playing the 14th.

Marc Leishman will get a first look at Gary Player Country Club when he pegs it up in this week's Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The former PGA TOUR rookie of the year is part of the 30-man line-up contesting this week's European Tour event in South Africa and it's actually the first tournament he's ever played in the country. Leishman made waves earlier this season when he reached a playoff at the Open Championship before losing out to Zach Johnson. He's been quiet since but did manage T11 in the WGC-HSBC Champions in China two starts ago. There was disappointment last week when he missed the cut in his home Australian Open when shooting 73-76.
