Jan 12 - 5:32 PM

Gary Woodland came up just shy during last year's OHL Classic at Mayakoba and he returns this week for another crack at El Camaleón Golf Club.

The Kansas Jayhawk enters the week with some steady form on his side. He has earned paychecks in six straight starts, with five of them doubling as top 30s. Woodland also has some course knowledge on his side as he posted a T28 in his 2009 debut and returned last year to collect a runner-up finish. Woodland led (by himself) after rounds 2 and 3 before a 1-under 70 got him passed up by Pat Perez. With strong recent form and strong course history roots, Woodland should be a top-tier option in all fantasy formats.

Gary Woodland again showed his liking for TPC Kuala Lumpur, hoisting up a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 in Thursday's opening round at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia to slot in at T5 on the end-of-day leaderboard.

That's just two swings behind leader Cameron Smith of Australia. Woodland is a two-time runner-up at this event having finished second to Ryan Moore in both 2013 and 2014. He started those two tournaments with rounds of 68 and 71 respectively and today's 66 matches his low lap which came in the third round three years ago. Woodland birdied the first four odd-numbered holes on his front nine and followed those gains at 1, 3, 5 and 7 with another at 10. From there, it was pars to the clubhouse apart from one final red circle at 16. The big-hitting American opened the final two FedExCup Playoff events with R1 67s before finishing T27 at the BMW and T19 at the TOUR Championship so will want to make a better job of cashing in this time.

Gary Woodland grinded out a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the TOUR Championship, positioning himself in contention early in the week.

There was nothing special about Woodland's ball-striking today, but he still managed to keep a clean card by round's end. After his outward nine, Woodland had given himself just one scoring chance from inside 20 feet. It was his strong play on (and around) the green that kept this round glued together, going 5-for-5 in getting up-and-down on the day. Making his fifth appearance at East Lake Golf Club, Woodland is no stranger to success here, arriving with top 10s in each of his last two trips to Atlanta, Georiga. Starting the week at 28th in the FedExCup race, Woodland needs a lot of chips to fall correctly if he wants to hoist the FedExCup title by week's end.
