Marc Leishman enjoyed a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of the Memorial and posted 8-under 136 at the halfway point.

The Aussie went 6-for-14 in scoring chances today with six birdies. The only notable conversion measured 15 feet at the par-4 first where he made the turn, so his irons were on point. At last check, his strokes gained: tee-to-green measured 3.090 for the day. Leishman signed his card positioned four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship was suspended for darkness.

With a three-hour delay to start the day and 156 golfers in play, even a sunset of 8:29 p.m. CT wasn't late enough to squeeze everyone in. In fact, 33 golfers have yet to complete their second round. This includes Marc Leishman, who is even through 32 holes. He'll return to the par-4 sixth hole for the restart on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. and will need to get under par to survive the cut. It's a startling fact given he's 5-for-6 in the tournament, all paydays going for top 12s. Of the stranded, only two have one hole to play. PGA TOUR rookie Tom Hoge is the trailer with six holes yet to finish.

Marc Leishman settled for a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in today's second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, posting 5-under 135 at the break, three shots in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Given that he hit 14 greens in regulation and squared four bogeys, including a three-putt from just 11'3" at the par-3 16th hole, the Aussie can't be too pleased with today's effort. Today's set of five birdies including three ranging from 10-17 feet. At last check, he ranked second in the field in greens in regulation (31) and third in strokes gained: tee-to-green with an aggregate measurement of 6.567.
May 22 - 2:47 PM

Marc Leishman submitted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Leishman missed only one green in regulation and collected four birdies, including on both of the par 5s. The first rolled in from 17'2" at No. 1; the other found the cup from 12'3" at No. 11. However, the Aussie's longest conversion dropped in from 18 feet at the par-4 third. He goes in the books two strokes off the overnight co-leaders.

Marc Leishman carded a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS, good for a share of the very early clubhouse lead.

Leishman advanced to the round of 16 at last week's Match Play in San Francisco, and he's played better than expected since his wife's health scare, so today's success is merely an extension of his form. He piped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation en route to five birdies against two bogeys. The Aussie's longest conversion dropped for birdie from 19'4" at the par-4 fourth hole.
May 7 - 12:36 PM

Marc Leishman survived Anirban Lahiri 1-up in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship to advance to the round of 16.

The Aussie collected the first point of the week on Wednesday. He's also the first to reach 3-0 in the tournament, but he had to sweat out Lahiri's birdie try from about six feet at the par-5 18th to move on. The Indian held the early lead by opening birdie-birdie to Leishman's par-birdie, but the match evened at the par-4 third where Lahiri penciled in a 5. Leishman built a 2-up lead by the par-4 10th, but they were all square again after Nos. 12 and 14. Lahiri's bogey-5 at the 15th gave Leishman the final edge, which he maintained by finishing birdie-par-par. Not only did Leishman go undefeated, but he did so as the 56-seed or the D-level member of his group. Lahiri (1-2), Justin Rose (2-1) and Ryan Palmer (0-3) have been eliminated.
May 1 - 4:44 PM

Marc Leishman coasted to a 4-and-3 victory over Ryan Palmer in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

To be fair, Palmer lost this more than Leishman won it. The American surrendered the lead with a bogey-5 at the third hole. Leishman didn't let go. He piled on with a birdie-3 at the eighth, and then went 3-up when Palmer bogeyed the par-3 ninth. Another Palmer bogey at 10 ensued. Palmer went birdie-bogey for a respective win-loss run at Nos. 11 and 12. Overall, Palmer squared five bogeys on the first 12 holes. At 0-2, he's been mathematically eliminated, but will give Justin Rose a challenge on Friday. Leishman will be gunning to go 3-0 in a third-round match with Anirban Lahiri.
Apr 30 - 6:54 PM

In the first match to conclude in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, Marc Leishman turned down Justin Rose 3 and 2.

It was also the first match out on TPC Harding Park this morning. Leishman promptly set the tone with a birdie-4 at the first hole and didn't relinquish the lead. He got it to 3-up on two occasions, the latter via a 35-footer for birdie at the par-4 14th hole. The duo traded par-4s at No. 15, and then again at the par-4 16th where the match ended. The Aussie will face Ryan Palmer in the second round on Thursday. Rose will duel with Anirban Lahiri.
Apr 29 - 4:33 PM

Marc Leishman returned to TPC Louisiana this morning to polish off a 9-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of Louisiana.

Leishman was laying 4 in front of the green at the par-5 18th hole when the horn sounded on Friday afternoon due to inclement weather. When play was called for the day, he had to return at 8:00 a.m. CT today to finish the hole and the round. Alas, the Aussie couldn't salvage par to tie the course record. But the bogey was barely a stain on an incredible round, especially when you consider where his focus was in recent weeks. Overall, Leishman hit 15 greens in regulation and converted 10 birdies. Half of the par breakers rolled 10-14 feet conventionally, but he also holed out from lies off the green from 18 yards at the par-3 ninth and six yards at the par-4 16th. At 7-under 137, he's just four swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 25 - 9:12 AM

Marc Leishman lapped TPC Louisiana in 2-over-par 38-36=74 in today's opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

All things considered, this wasn't bad even though he's 10 strokes off the clubhouse lead. The Aussie squared four bogeys, including a 6 at the 11th hole, but found a pair of birdie-4s coming home. Today's loop wasn't about the score as much as the return to normalcy as a touring professional. It was just three weeks ago when his wife nearly died after battling an illness. Regardless of what happens the rest of the way in NOLA, Leishman is expected to make the trip to California for next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship. He's currently 58th in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Apr 23 - 4:12 PM

Marc Leishman is included in the published field of next week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

This is great news. It implies that his wife is stable and recovering from her recent health scare. He hasn't played since missing the cut at Bay Hill and he hasn't cashed since a T51 at The Honda Classic. In his only previous appearance at TPC Louisiana, he missed the cut in 2009.

Marc Leishman withdrew from the 79th Masters today to be with his wife, who is recovering from a serious illness.

"Thanks to an incredible team of doctors and nurses, Audrey appears to be on the road to full recovery and our two young children remain blessed to have the world’s best mum in their lives," Leishman told the Australian Associated Press. "We ask that you keep Audrey in your thoughts and prayers, and I wish my best to all the competitors for a great 2015 Masters." Audrey was in the hospital with pneumonia. Doctors put her into a medically induced coma to battle other infections. Given the severity of that and its timing to the season's first major, Marc's decision not to play is not a surprise.
Apr 8 - 11:22 AM

Marc Leishman's appearance in next week's Masters is in doubt as his wife battles pneumonia.

Audrey Leishman was placed in a medically induced coma in a hospital near home in Virginia. Doctors want to isolate and treat all infections. "Our family appreciates everyone's thoughts and concerns," said Marc Leishman. "We ask that everyone respect our privacy through this difficult period. Please keep Audrey in your prayers." He tied for fourth at Augusta National in 2013, but missed last year's cut. Even if he wasn't preoccupied with his wife's situation, the Aussie's form wouldn't trigger any interest in the season's first major. His only payday in his last four starts was as a result of a T51 at The Honda Classic.

Marc Leishman will give it a go at this week's Valspar Championship.

The Aussie has been largely silent this season. He's picked off only one top 25 in seven starts, and that was three months ago at the WGC-HSGC Champions (solo ninth). His experience at Copperhead can't hurt as he's survived four straight cuts, but he hasn't finished better than T38 in 2013. Expect Leishman to reemerge as an option when the PGA TOUR slides over to Texas in a couple of weeks. Let's just hope he's able to make the trip with a little success in tow.
