World No. 36 Marc Leishman crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a 72-hole total of 6-under 274, up 17 spots to T13 with play still in progress.
The 33-year-old was making his ninth appearance and this will be a sixth top 25. His best are a pair of T3s in 2012 and 2014. The Aussie arrived at a lofty 15th in the FedExCup standings, 10-for-12 on the season with seven top 25s and three top 10s, highlighted by his second TOUR title at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. After opening in 68-71-68, he began T30 on 3-under and found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 5.655 strokes tee-to-green. He offset three bogeys with six birdies, posting a pedestrian 1.857 putts per GIR and a dismal 1.813 SG: Putting. Leishman 3-putted the par-4 eight from 25'7" for bogey and missed four scoring tries from inside of 11 feet. May 21 - 4:55 PM

Marc Leishman arrives at TPC Sawgrass this week for his eighth appearance at THE PLAYERS.

Like many golfers, the Aussie struggled with this Pete Dye design the first few times seeing it (MC in 2010 and 2011). Since then, he is 5-for-5 with three top 25s including a T8 in 2013. This season he ranks 90th or better in all four sub-categories of strokes gained statistics. Combined he ranks 11th on TOUR in strokes gained total. With solid course history and good season-long form, Leishman is definitely worth a peek in deeper fantasy formats this week.

Marc Leishman drained a 12'4" birdie putt at the second extra hole to win a three-way play-off for Group 3 against Lee Westwood and Pat Perez and book his spot in the last 16 of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas.

All three had finished the Pool phase with 2-1 records, winning one match each and receiving a walkover after the first-day WD of Jason Day. Leishman had been due to meet his compatriot today so put his feet up until the play-off was confirmed. At the first extra hole, Westwood's birdie putt lipped out before Perez failed to convert his. That left Leishman 7'5" to win but he too suffered a horseshoe and on they went. Perez swallowed a double at No. 2 before Westwood left his birdie try in the jaws. Again, that left the door open for Leishman and, having lost a three-way play-off at the 2015 Open Championship, this time he got it done, holing his third to set up a last-16 clash with Phil Mickelson.

Fresh off a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Marc Leishman took care of business in round one of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, walking away with a 3-and-2 win over Lee Westwood.

Leishman drew first blood in this match, circling a birdie at the short, par-4 first. He lost two holes throughout the match, but never trailed in this one. The highlight of the round came at the par-4 15th where Leishman sank a 14'1" birdie to reach 3-up on the match and a par at 16 sealed the deal. Today's match was a rematch of last year's group stage when Westwood walked away with a 1-up win. Leishman got his revenge today and will now turn his attention to Pat Perez in Round 2. With Jason Day withdrawing from the event, Leishman could secure a spot in the Round of 16 if he knocks off Perez tomorrow.

World No. 62 Marc Leishman erased a 3-shot deficit with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to reach 11-under 277, up two places on the day and good for a 1-shot win over 54-hole co-leaders Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman, who both shot 73s. UPDATE: Leishman earns 3-year exemption on TOUR and invites to 2017 Masters, PGA Championship and WGC-Bridgestone.

The 33-year-old, a pre-tourney 80/1 outright, claims his second TOUR title in 207 career starts, joining the 2012 Travelers (111 starts ago), where he came from six back with 8-under 62 to win by one, also over Hoffman (and B. Watson). After opening in 71-66-71, he began in a three-way T3. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, the Aussie conjured eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.487 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 4.202 on the greens. He went out in 1-under, outpacing a 1-putt bogey-5 at No. 3 with birdie-4s at 4 and 6, trailing Kisner by three. He circled the par-4 10th, gave it back with bogey-5 at 11, and then banged home a 51-footer for eagle at the par-5 16th. The Virginia Beach, Virginia, resident secured the trophy with a pair of up-and-down pars at 17 and 18. This was his eighth API with a previous-best of T3 (2011), and his sixth top 25 of the season in eight tries, second top 10 (solo 5th, CIMB Classic).

World No. 62 Marc Leishman pieced together a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to reach 8-under 208, up one place on the live leaderboard to T3, three back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Kevin Kisner. UPDATE: With play completed, Leishman is in a three-way T3, three adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Kisner and Charley Hoffman.

The 33-year-old landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, currently leading in the latter at 77.78 percent (42/54). He gained 2.150 strokes approaching-the-green but lost 0.640 strokes around-the-green. The Aussie bookended bogey-5 at holes 1 and 18, circling birdies at 6, 16 and 17 with a long of 13'9" at the par-3 17th. He posted a disappointing 1.933 putts per GIR, -0.851 SG: Putting, and took 33 putts total. Leishman is looking for his second TOUR title in 207 career starts, joining his maiden win at the 2012 Travelers Championship.

Marc Leishman breezed through Bay Hill Club and Lodge with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, positioning himself in a share of fourth place on 7-under 137.

The Aussie struck it beautifully today, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and landing 15 greens in regulation. His flat stick was the scoring weapon of choice, though. Five of his six birdies came on putts converted from outside 10 feet, including a pair from outside 20 feet. This matches Leishman's low lap at Bay Hill, tying his effort from R3 of the 2011 edition. This also ties the lowest score recorded this week, joining Charley Hoffman and Tommy Fleetwood as golfers with 6-under 66s to their name, all three recorded today. Leishman arrived with top 30s in six of his last seven starts, and appears to be on pace for yet another this week.

World No. 61 Marc Leishman carded a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the first round of the Genesis Open at Riviera CC, currently T6 on the leaderboard.

The 33-year-old is making his eighth appearance with T5 last year (68-67-68-69) a lone top 10. He arrived off six straight top-25 finishes worldwide, most recently T24 two weeks ago at the Phoenix Open. The Aussie mustered six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, circling five birdies versus a lone bogey-5 at the ninth. All five conversions dropped from inside of eight feet

World No. 60 Marc Leishman missed 10 greens in regulation but still authored a bogey-free 6-under-par 30-35=65 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a 54-hole total of 11-under 202, up 16 places to T5 with play still in progress.

The 33-year-old is making his sixth visit to TPC Scottsdale with a best of T19 in 2012. It was his 17th lap on the par-71 layout and is a new low, brushing aside 67/R1 (2011). The Aussie began T21 on 5-under after kicking off with 68-69. Entering the day, he had one blemish thru 36 holes, a double bogey-6 at the 10th in R2, and despite just eight GIR in R3, kept the card clean. He saved par from greater than six feet seven times and circled five conventional birdies, two from between 15 and 16 feet, adding a pitch-in 3 at the fifth. At the time Leishman signed his card, he was at 4.190 in SG: Putting,

World No. 57 Marc Leishman spun a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to reach 7-under 209, up 16 spots to T5 with play still in progress.

The Aussie is a two-time runner-up at the Farmers in eight prior appearances (2010, 2014). He kicked off with an up-and-down 3-under 69 (South Course) and bobbed and weaved to an even-par 72 (North Course) in R2, exchanging three birdies with three bogeys. The 33-year-old, who arrived off a T20 at the Sony Open, squared bogeys on holes 5 and 11 (failed sand saves), but overshadowed them with circles at 6, 9, 10 (22'8"), 13 (15'7"), 14 and 18. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.583 putts per GIR.

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.

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.
