20-seed Gary Woodland crafted a bogey-free 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to wrap his fourth appearance on 2-under 278, up four places to T10 with play still in progress.
The 32-year-old began the finale on 1-over (T14) after opening in progressively better laps of 72-70-69. He kept that trajectory going with a closing 67, circling three birdies, each from inside of eight feet, on six (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. For the week, the Kansas alum carded 13 birdies against seven bogeys and two doubles, though he did play his final 36 holes with only one blemish, a bogey-4 on the 15th in R3. If the top 10 holds, it will be his fourth of the season in 26 starts and is projected to finish 20th in the FedExCup standings, exactly where he entered the week. Sep 25 - 5:01 PM

World No. 49 Gary Woodland is in Atlanta to contest his fourth TOUR Championship and arrives as the 20-seed in the FedExCup standings.

The 32-year-old's last visit to East Lake GC in 2014 was his best (and lone top 10), posting a T9 on rounds of 71-75-63-67. That 63 is the best score at the par-70 layout of the 30 competitors in this year's field (five players have shot 64). The University of Kansas alum's career scoring average in the season finale (12 rounds) is 69.50. He checks in with top-25 finishes in each of the first three legs of the Playoffs -- one of seven players to do so -- but is trending in the wrong direction (T4-T15-T24). Woodland ranks T15 on TOUR in par-4 scoring average at 4.01.

Gary Woodland painted a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach 7-under 135, up 33 spots to T5 with play still in progress.

This is the 32-year-old's fifth appearance with a best of T12 last year (68-70-69-71). He entered the week 24th in the FedExCup standings and off a T4 at The Barclays. The Topeka, Kansas, native kicked off with an up-and-down 2-under 69 (four birdies, two bogeys), and outpaced a lone bogey at the par-3 eighth with six birdies on Day 2, five conventional and a 14-footer from the fringe at the par-4 13th. He improved to 15 greens in regulation (from 12 in R1) and posted 1.667 putts per GIR for a second straight lap. Four of his conversions were from eight feet and in with a long of 14'6" at the par-4 17th that completed his scoring.
Sep 3 - 4:27 PM

Gary Woodland turned in a 2-under-par 34-35=69 after today's final round of The Barclays to reach 7-under 277, up two places into a three-way T4, two shy of champion Patrick Reed.

The 32-year-old began the final frame in a four-way T6 on 5-under after progressively better laps of 71-69-68, four back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, recording a mediocre 1.857 putts per GIR, but to be fair, only had four scoring tries from less than 11 feet. The Kansas native circled three of them on Nos. 2, 4 and 10, all from inside of five feet, but 3-putted the par-5 13th from 26'7" which completed his scoring. He did make four par putts from between five and 11 feet en route to his third top 10 of the season in 23 starts, all doubling as top 5s.
Aug 28 - 7:16 PM

Gary Woodland fashioned a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of The Barclays to reach 5-under 208, up 13 places to T5 with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old is making his fifth appearance and was runner-up in 2012 at Liberty National GC. He kicked off with 71-69 to begin the third frame on 2-under (T18), six shy of 36-hole leader Patrick Reed but just one off the overnight top 10. The Kansas alum ate a double bogey-6 at the 11th, but otherwise was flawless, carding birdies on Nos. 2, 3 and 15 (12'6"), and an eagle at the par-5 seventh from 4'10". He saved par from 11'0" at the par-3 17th and then whiffed birdie from 4'5" at the par-4 18th. Woodland, who entered the week 42nd in the FedExCup standings, conjured just six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 3.720 SG: Approach-the-Green but -0.862 SG: Around-the-Green.

Fresh off a missed cut at the PGA Championship, Gary Woodland turns his attention to TPC River Highlands for this week's Travelers Championship.

The 32-year-old entered last week with top 30s in eight of his last nine starts. The run of good form came to an end after posting 5-over 145 to miss the cut at Baltusrol Golf Club. Gamers should not be too concerned, though, given the amount of missed cuts by some of the game's best golfers last week. As for his record at TPC River Highlands, he finished T63 in his 2009 debut, withdrew during round two of the 2013 edition (back injury) and returned last year to collect a T20. Currently 21st in strokes gained approach-the-green, it will come down to the flat stick where he currently ranks 111th in strokes gained putting. Woodland makes for a nice bounce-back candidate this week, viable in all formats.
Aug 3 - 12:34 AM

Gary Woodland rallied for a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in today's final round of The 145th Open Championship to finish off his fifth appearance on 1-under 283, up six places to T12 with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old has cashed in each of his five Opens but this wipes away a previous-best T30 on debut in 2011 at Royal St. George's. He's making his 19th overall appearance in a major and his best was T12 on debut in the 2011 PGA Championship, so the Kansas native is right on that mark. Woodland, who arrived off a season-best runner-up at the Barracuda, began the finale on even-par (T18) after opening in 69-71-73. He birdied Nos. 1 and 4 before bogeys at 6, 8 and 9 had him turn 1-over, but played the more difficult back nine in blemish-free 2-under, adding birdie-3s at 10 and 13.
Jul 17 - 12:34 PM

Gary Woodland settled for a 1-under-par 36-35=71 during the final round of the Barracuda Championship, bagging just four points to close out the week with 37 points, six shy of the champion Greg Chalmers.

Woodland striped 13 (of 14) fairways, one less than yesterday's flawless-fairway effort. He put on a driving clinic all week, missing just five (of 56) fairways and gaining 6.276 strokes off-the-tee (1st in the field). His ball-striking was never in question, especially when he sculpted a perfect fade off the tee at the short par-4 14th hole, sticking it to 5'1", easily the closest of the day. He couldn't convert on the putt, though, which was the trend of the day as he lost 2.447 strokes with the flat stick. That includes a gaffe at the closing par-5 18th hole where he three-jacked from 12'5" to drop a shot and take a big heap of pressure off the shoulders of eventual champion, Greg Chalmers. Even though the 2013 champion couldn't add a second Barracuda trophy to his case, this goes in the books as his second top 5 over his last four starts as he turns his attention to Royal Troon.
Jul 3 - 10:15 PM

Past champ Gary Woodland styled a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Barracuda Championship to gather 11 points and reach 33 points total, ending the day exactly where he began, in a two-way T2.

The 32-year-old won here in 2013 from the 54-hole perch in his only other appearance. This time, he'll be the chaser in Sunday's finale, trailing 54-hole leader Greg Chalmers by 6 points. The Kansas alum played in the final pairing with 36-hole leader Chalmers in today's third round and began the festivities trailing by 2 points. He was a perfect 14 (of 14) in fairways hit and pelted 14 greens in regulation, but conjured a meager 0.038 in SG: Putting. Woodland carded six birdies, five from inside of nine feet, dropping a lone point with bogey on the 17th hole after a failed sand save. He missed three scoring chances from inside of 10 feet, including a whiff from 5'0" at the par-4 14th.
Jul 2 - 10:51 PM

Past champ Gary Woodland signed for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 and eight points after today's second round of the Barracuda Championship to reach the midpoint with 22 points, two points back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Greg Chalmers.

The 2013 champ began the second frame off No. 10 tee and for a second straight lap, striped 12 (of 14) fairways but digressed from 14 to 10 greens in regulation. He realized 2.011 SG: Tee-to-Green but -0.862 SG: Approach-to-the-Green. The 32-year-old birdied Nos. 13, 16, 2 and 4, before bogeys at 6 and 8 on failed scrambles. In yesterday's round, he bogeyed his final hole to drop out of a share of the first-round lead, but he walked-off today with a birdie-3 at the ninth from 9'1", his longest conventional conversion of the round. The Kansas alum also chipped-in from 16'7" away for birdie-2 at the 16th.
Jul 1 - 3:58 PM

Past champion Gary Woodland put his game on cruise control en route to a 5-under-par 32-35=67 during round one of the Barracuda Championship, grabbing 14 points for his efforts to sit one off the lead entering Friday.

The 2013 champion returned to Montrêux Golf and Country Club for the first time since his big win. The spark was instantly re-kindled as he traded three birdies and an eagle with just one bogey on his outward nine. The eagle was most impressive as he froze his 289-yard approach shot to 9'10" to set up the eagle splash. Woodland added a birdie train on the back nine that started on the par-3 11th and lasted three holes. That's when he disengaged from cruise control and swallowed two bogeys over his final five holes, going from +16 to +14 in the process to sit one off the lead. Woodland gained 4.26 strokes tee-to-green during his round today and will be a serious threat to repeat his 2013 performance if his putter heats up.
Jun 30 - 9:02 PM

Gary Woodland makes his way back to Montrêux Golf and Country Club for this week's Barracuda Championship, his first appearance since winning the 2013 edition.

The University of Kansas product pieced together rounds of +14, +7, +16, and +7 en route to his 2013 victory at the Modified Stableford event. It was his second career PGA TOUR victory and he's failed to return to the winner's circle since. Woodland currently ranks 41st in holes per eagle and 46th in birdie or better percentage. That ability to racks up birdies and eagles is what earned him the 2013 title and makes him one of the favorites again this week as he returns for just his second start at Montrêux G&CC.
Jun 28 - 10:23 PM

Gary Woodland rallied for a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 207, up seven places on the live leaderboard to T9.

The 32-year-old opened his sixth appearance in twin 69s, and liked them so much he added a third. Interestingly enough, his best at Congressional is also 69, shot two other times, most recent before this week was in R3 in 2014. The Kansas alum 4-putted the par-4 third (from 57'9") for double but otherwise kept the card clean, including a 17-foot par save on the par-4 17th. He circled three conventional birdies on holes 4, 8 and 9, each from inside of 10 feet, and completed his scoring with a chip-in birdie-3 at the 15th from 35'11" away. In total, Woodland hit 13 greens in regulation and posted a pedestrian 1.923 putts per GIR.
Jun 25 - 4:30 PM

Gary Woodland pieced together an even-par 34-36=70 in today's second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and at 3-over 143, missed the cut by two strokes.

A total of 73 players from a field of 154 pros and two amateurs made the cut on 1-over 141. Woodland arrived off a season-best T4 at Memorial and was making his fourth visit and first since a personal-best T18 in 2013 that included a closing 64. He opened this edition with a one-birdie four-bogey 73 and chased with three birdies on 10 GIR in R2, but erased them with bogey at the first and double bogey-5 at the 11th, his second hole of the round. Other notables joining the 32-year-old on the bench for the weekend include: 142- Jason Bohn; Ernie Els; defender Fabian Gomez; Tim Wilkinson ... 143- Ben Martin ... 144- Robby Shelton and Lee McCoy (pro debuts); Will Wilcox ... 145- Bud Cauley ... 146- Graeme McDowell ... 147- Jerry Kelly; Kyle Reifers; Martin Piller ... 149- Cameron Tringale.
Jun 10 - 8:17 PM

Overnight co-leader Gary Woodland backed up with a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in today's weather-delayed final round of the Memorial to post 13-under 275, down three spots into a four-way T4, two back of a two-man playoff involving Jon Curran and 54-hole co-leader and would-be-champ William McGirt.

This was the 32-year-old's sixth consecutive appearance with a previous best of solo sixth on debut in 2011. He began the final frame in a three-way tie for first place on 14-under after rounds of 68-65-69. Woodland birdied the first and the seventh before retreating with bogey at the ninth to turn 1-under and dropping to tied third. He wound up squaring three straight with bogeys at 10 and 11, the latter a three-jack from 17 feet, now T5 when play was suspended. When play resumed, the Kansas alum birdied the 13th from 31'4" before eating his fourth bogey at the 17th. He had a chance for tied third at the last from 8'10" but missed. It's Woodland's first top 10 of the season in 15 events though seventh top 25.
