Gary Woodland currently sits 22nd in the FedExCup standings during the holiday break on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR.
Woodland has teed it up just twice this season, with his T2 at the CIMB Classic easily taking the cake. He tied for 56th at the WGC-HSBC Champions the very next week. Somewhat surprisingly, considering his spot in the FEC standings, he has broken 70 just twice in eight rounds. Dec 3 - 2:55 PM

Gary Woodland added a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the CIMB Classic, but settled for second place for the second consecutive year.

Woodland sauntered around Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club and found six birdies against no bogeys through 17 holes. A three-jack bogey at the last bumped him from solo second into a three-way share of runner-up honors. It's déjà vu in a sense in that Ryan Moore successfully defended his title after dismissing Woodland in a playoff last year. Despite today's disappointment, the bomber will make the trip to China for the WGC-HSBC in terrific form.

Gary Woodland turned in a 6-under-par 31-35=66 for his third round of the CIMB Classic to post 9-under 207 and assume outright possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Last year's playoff loser finally found his groove again at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. He opened today's walk with birdies at the first two holes and made them count. Woodland picked up five more before walking off with a bogey-6 at the 18th hole. This is his first start since a share of ninth place at the TOUR Championship seven weeks ago.

Sixteen golfers qualified for the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions from the latest edition of the Official World Golf Ranking.

An array of qualifying criteria into the 78-man field at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China, on Nov. 6-9 centered on this weekend. Whether all of the qualifiers will compete is another story, but here's the list of those previously ineligible until the OWGR was released (current world ranking): Phil Mickelson (11th); Jordan Spieth (14th); Tiger Woods (17th); Keegan Bradley (27th); Steve Stricker (28th); Bill Haas (29th); Webb Simpson (31st); Jason Dufner (32nd); Kevin Na (34th); Graham DeLaet (41st); Ian Poulter (43rd); Brendon Todd (44th); Brandt Snedeker (45th); Marc Leishman (47th); Ryan Moore (48th); Gary Woodland (49th).

Gary Woodland backed up a career-low round with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the TOUR Championship.

It was a tale of two halves this week for Woodland, as his first 36 holes included just two birdies offset with eight bogeys. He flipped the script the final two rounds, as he added seven birdies, two eagles, and just one bogey. Woodland ends the week at 4-under 276, good for his fifth top 10 of the season.

Gary Woodland torched East Lake Golf Club to the tune of a bogey-free, 7-under-par 30-33=63 in the third round of the TOUR Championship.

Woodland circled five birdies on the day in addition to an eagle to reach the 54-hole mark at 1-under 209. He split 10 (of 14) fairways on the day and converted par breakers on six of his 14 greens in regulation. This 63 ties his career-low round on the PGA TOUR. The previous came at the 2009 Mayakoba Golf Classic. Today's matches the lowest aggregate at East Lake since the greens were redone in advance of the 2008 edition of the TOUR Championship. Nick Watney (third round, 2010) and Webb Simpsons (final round, 2013) also turned the trick. Woodland walked off the course eight strokes off the lead, so a win is not likely, but he did put himself into position for a nice payday tomorrow.
Sep 13 - 4:04 PM

Playing as a single to open the TOUR Championship, Gary Woodland promptly posted a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in his opening round.

With the field paired in twosomes and with only 29 golfers, the bomber was the odd man out. He raced around East Lake in under three hours, trading two birdies with three bogeys. Both of his birdies occurred on the par 5s. Right around the time that Woodland signed his card, the PGA TOUR announced that tee times on Friday have been shifted three hours earlier due to the threat of inclement weather later in the day. The second round is now scheduled to begin at 8:45 a.m. ET with all golfers going off the first tee just as they did today. Barring a delay, the final twosome will tee off at 11:00 a.m.

Gary Woodland enters this week's TOUR Championship at the back of the pack, ranked 29th in the FedExCup standings.

It's been a season of consistency for the Kansas Jayhawk, as he lost in a playoff to finish runner-up during his second event of the season and hasn't fallen out of the top 32 in the FEC standings since. Woodland finished T22 and T13 in his two previous trips to East Lake. Although everyone has a statistical shot to win the FedExCup Playoffs, it would take a perfect storm for Woodland to walk out of Atlanta with the hardware.
Sep 8 - 10:34 PM

Opening-round co-leader Gary Woodland settled for a 3-over-par 34-39=73 in his second round of the BMW Championship to level out at even-par 140 at the halfway point.

He's suddenly eight strokes off the 36-hole lead. Woodland simply didn't have it today. He split only half of the 14 fairways and stood over just nine opportunities to break par. He did so once and added a nine-yard birdie from just off the green at the par-4 third. Elsewhere, he swallowed five bogeys and totaled seven whiffs inside 10 feet.
Sep 5 - 7:41 PM

Gary Woodland opened the BMW Championship with a 3-under-par 33-34=67, good for early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Woodland arrived in Colorado sitting 29th in the FedExCup standings, so he's feeling the pressure of being on the bublble. He went out in the second threesome off the 10th tee at Cherry Hills Country Club today and promptly rolled in a birdie from 11'3" at the opening par 4. Birdies at 11 and 17 ensued, the latter measuring a round-long 17'10". His fourth and final birdie dropped in from 15 feet at the par-4 second. He went 3-for-3 in scrambling, but squared a three-putt bogey from 47 feet at the par-4 fourth. At the time he signed his card, Woodland also led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 4.307.
Sep 4 - 6:19 PM

Gary Woodland signed for a 6-under-par 29-36=65 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is the first to post 5-under 279.

The bomber was greedy on the front nine at TPC Boston, bagging seven birdies and setting for two pars. The back nine was a bit of a disappointment, as he could only manage eight pars and a bogey. His longest birdie of the day was from 17'9" on the par-4 first hole, but he did managed two others from outside of 10 feet. When it was all said and done, he gained over four strokes with the flat stick at the time of his posting.
Sep 1 - 1:12 PM

Gary Woodland spun a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of The Barclays to end the week at 8-under 276.

The bomber circled seven birdies on his lap around Ridgewood CC, but his two bogeys and a double bogey prevented him from making too big of a move. He had several highlights, holing birdies from 46'2" on the par-3 eighth and ending the round with a 35'2" slider on the par-4 18th. He split 12 of 14 fairways and gained well over two strokes with his putter.
Aug 24 - 4:37 PM

Gary Woodland scratched out a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in his third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to join a share of 10th at 4-under 206.

Woodland did his heavy lifting on the front nine at Firestone CC, with three early birdies including a 10'7" effort on the par-4 fourth, only partially erased by a bogey at the ninth. He would then trade a 17'2" birdie at the par-4 11th for a bogey on the par-4 14th coming in. He will try and close out his fifth top 10 of the season on Sunday.
Aug 2 - 5:13 PM

Gary Woodland is one of 10 golfers to earn an exemption into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational on July 31-Aug. 3.

The top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking at the conclusion of this weekend's action gained entry into the final of four WGCs on the season. (The Tour's Albertsons Boise Open scheduled to finish later today will not have an impact.) Woodland is 47th in the updated OWGR to secure his first start at Firestone since his debut in 2011. He shared 39th place at Royal Liverpool today. The following nine inside the top 50 weren't previously exempt, but will now join Woodland in Akron: Jim Furyk (10th), Rickie Fowler (18th), Ian Poulter (28th), Jamie Donaldson (32nd), Kevin Na (37th), Francesco Molinari (42nd), Jonas Blixt (45th), Joost Luiten (46th) and Harris English (48th). Everyone in next week's top 50 of the OWGR will also gain entry.
Jul 20 - 2:36 PM

Gary Woodland tied for 16th last year at Congressional Country Club and returns for another shot at this week's Quicken Loans National.

Woodland is the owner of 15 consecutive cuts made, a streak bested by just six others currently. Last year, he opened 70-69 to sit four strokes off the 36-hole lead, before giving one back over the weekend to fade out of contention. Woodland has always had the upside to finish inside the top 10 on any given week, but his newfound consistency makes him a strong option in any format.
