For a second consecutive round, Gary Woodland smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-33=64 at the AT&T Byron Nelson for a 54-hole tally of 11-under 199, up 24 places on the live leaderboard to T7 and good for the low lap in the clubhouse.
The University of Kansas alum opened his eighth Nelson with an up-and-down 71 that included a double bogey-7 on his 16th hole of the round. He's played his last 38 holes in blemish-free 12-under. The newly minted 32-year-old (today), began Moving Day on 5-under T31 and managed just four (of 14) fairways but hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.615 putts per GIR. All six of his conversions came from inside of seven feet and he dropped a 13'9" par-saver on the 15th to keep the card clean. May 21 - 3:51 PM

Gary Woodland orchestrated a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's second round of THE PLAYERS to post 9-under 135, up seven spots to T6 with play still in progress.

Eight days shy of his 32nd birthday (May 21st), Woodland is making his fifth start at TPC Sawgrass with his only cash in 2014. He was T5 thru 54 holes that year but even-par 72 left him T11. Woodland opened this week with a six-birdie one-bogey 67 -- on 17 greens in regulation -- and circled five in R2 against a lone bogey at the par-4 seventh on a failed scramble. He split nine (of 14) fairways for a second straight lap and digressed slightly to 14 GIR and 1.714 putts per GIR. The Orlando resident circled four the conventional way, including a walk-off 3 at the 18th from 5'11", and added one from the fringe on the par-5 11th from 12'1" away.

Gary Woodland walks into Charlotte, North Carolina, for a sixth start at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Woodland is 10-for-11 on the season but ranks just 94th in the FedExCup standings. He's still searching for his first top 10 of the season. Considering he's collected nine top 10s the two prior seasons, you'd have to think it's about time for another. Woodland ranks first on TOUR in driving distance, making him a great fantasy-friendly option this week in all formats.

Gary Woodland is back at the Shell Houston Open after a three-year recess from the tournament and enters the week 91st in FedExCup points.

Woodland needs a win at the Shell to stamp his ticket to next week's Masters. He ended 2015 No. 63 in OWGR and currently sits No. 71. He was a career-best 24th just 10 months ago so the drop-off has been precipitous. The 31-year-old is 2-for-3 at the Houston Open with a best of T13 in 2011 and finished T50 three years ago in his last visit. He's 8-for-9 on the season but has no top 10s. Woodland's season best is T13 (Sony) and he co-led the Farmers thru 36 holes, but wrapped in 73-82 for T18. He missed the cut by three in his last start at the API (73-74) and hasn't posted a sub-par loop in his last seven rounds.

Gary Woodland authored a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in today's third round of The Honda Classic for a three-day total of 1-under 209, up 32 spots on the live leaderboard to T13.

Woodland is making his fourth appearance with a best of T6/2011 sandwiched by T68/2013 and a T73/MDF in 2009. He opened in 70-72 to slip one inside the cut line and circled five on day three to outpace bogeys at seven and 12 on failed scrambles. The 31-year-old, who's a perfect 6-for-6 on the season with a best of T13 at the Sony, connected three straight birdies on Nos. 2-4 and added two more at 9 and 11. Each of those traveled between two and 11 feet and came on 11 greens in regulation for a tidy 1.545 putts per GIR. Woodland had three other scoring chances from inside of 10 feet but couldn't convert.

Gary Woodland crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the two-day opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, two adrift of 18-hole tri-leaders Rickie Fowler, Shane Lowry and Hideki Matsuyama.

Woodland was one (of 33) unable to complete their first rounds on Thursday due to a one-hour frost delay and an eventual suspension due to darkness. Prior to the stoppage, he squared bogey on his third hole of the round with a failed scramble at the par-4 12th, but bounced back with birdies at 15 (21'3"), 17 and a 12-footer at 18 to turn 2-under. The 31-year-old added birdie at five, and when play resumed on Friday, six as well from 12'9". He retreated with another failed scramble at the eighth but answered back with a walk-off 12-footer for 3 at the ninth. Woodland's coming off a 10-over 82 at last week's two-day weather-challenged Farmers finale where he landed on T18 after co-leading thru 36 holes.
Feb 5 - 10:35 AM

Overnight co-leader Gary Woodland handed in a 1-over-par 37-36=73 after today's third round of the Farmers Insurance Open for a 54-hole total of 8-under 208, one swing back of co-leaders Scott Brown and K.J. Choi.

Woodland co-lead with Choi after 36 holes on 9-under. It was his first 36-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR in his 152nd career start. He squared bogey at the par-3 third with a three-putt from 47'2" but bounced back from 10'11" at the par-5 sixth. Another three-putt bogey from 33'8" followed at the par-5 ninth to turn 1-over. The 31-year-old retreated again with bogey-5 at 12 (failed sand save) and then airmailed the green on 14, the ensuing penalty drop leading to another dropped shot (although it could've been worse). His second birdie finally arrived from 21'3" at the par-4 15th and added a two-putt birdie (from 16'11") at the par-5 last. Woodland hit 13 greens in regulation in round three but posted a shaky 2.000 putts per GIR.

During the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open, Gary Woodland scorched the difficult Torrey Pines South with a 5-under-par 31-36=67 to establish himself at the 36-hole leader at 9-under 135.

Woodland opened the round at 4-under on the week and reached five quickly after a birdie bomb dropped from 39'2" on the par-3 third hole. He proceeded to help out DFS gamers when he started up a birdie train on the par-4 fifth, ending the train at the par-4 seventh. The bomber gave one back on the par-4 12th but wasn't done as he circled two more at the 13th and 14th holes to reach 10-under on the week. Woodland kept his scorecard colorful as he three-jacked on the par-3 17th to drop a shot and dropped another on the following hole. All was not lost, as the Kansas product birdied the par-5 18th hole to regain some momentum heading into the weekend as the 36-hole leader.

Gary Woodland tackled Torrey Pines North to the tune of a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to open his week at the Farmers Insurance Open.

The bomber submitted the first birdie of the tournament as he circled one at the par-4 10th hole, his first of the day. He gave two strokes back at the following hole and dropped another shot just two holes later. Wanting to spread out the color on his scorecard, he decided to reach the green in two on the par-5 14th hole and drop in an eagle. Woodland has the length to take on the South Course tomorrow, but it will only get tougher from here on out.
Jan 28 - 4:49 PM

Gary Woodland authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-32=66 on day three of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a 54-hole total of 11-under 199, up 10 places on the leaderboard to T6.

Woodland is one of 11 TOUR players to announce new equipment deals in 2016, but the only addition to TaylorMade (thus far), making the switch from Callaway. He began the third round at Waialae CC on 7-under (T16) after opening his fourth appearance on Oahu in 66-67, five adrift of 36-hole leader Brandt Snedeker. The 31-year-old conquered the difficult par-4 first with birdie from 4'7" and that would be it on his outward half, finishing with eight straight pars. He had four realistic scoring chances from inside of 15 feet at Nos. 2-5, but missed them all. Woodland stayed patient however, and added three more circles to the card at 10, 12 and 18, all from inside of three feet. He landed 17 greens in regulation on Saturday and leads the field in that stat thru 54 holes at 87.04 percent (47/54).
Jan 17 - 1:03 AM

Gary Woodland has opened 2015-16 with two appearances in no-cut events, finishing T56 at the CIMB Classic and T23 at the WGC-HSBC Champions.

Woodland missed nine cuts last season on 24 starts, the most since missing 10 during his rookie season in 2009. After qualifying for the TOUR Championship in each of the two previous years, he failed to reach the season finale last season at 41st in the FedExCup standings. It was a disappointing result for the 31-year-old, after opening last season with a T2 in his first event at the CIMB. He later added a runner-up finish at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play and a T4 at the Wells Fargo, both in May, but bowed out of the postseason after a MC-T12-T60. Look for Woodland to make his first full-field start at the Sony Open, where he finished T3 last season on rounds of 70-65-65-67.

Gary Woodland does battle in his third straight CIMB Classic at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.

It's safe to say that Woodland enjoys his time in Malaysia after posting consecutive runner-up finishes in each of the last two editions. His career scoring average in the eight rounds is 68.50 totaling 14-under 274 on both occasions. The question now is can he get it over the line. Woodland's been idle since T60 at the BMW Championship in late September, but that didn't matter last season, where he still went T2 despite a seven-week layoff coming in. The 31-year-old finished 41st in FedExCup points last season, missing the TOUR Championship for the first time since 2012, and did most of his damage early on. Following a T4 at the Wells Fargo in mid-May, his fourth top 10 on 24 starts, he didn't record another top 10 over his last 10 events, missing four cuts and finishing outside the top 50 four times.

Gary Woodland fashioned a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Woodland clipped the previous clubhouse co-leaders by one stroke when he walked off with a birdie-4 at the 18th hole. Prior to it, he rung up four birdies against two bogeys. His highlight may go in the books as the putt of the tournament as his conversion on the par-4 sixth measured 70 feet, three inches. He also connected from 14'10" at the par-4 12th to stop a bogey-bogey slide at the time. Woodland averted a third square with a par save from 10'8" at the par-4 fourth. He entered the week ranked 44th in the FedExCup standings.

Gary Woodland signed for a 1-under-par 35-34=69 following his opening round of The Barclays.

This is Woodland's first live action since he placed T57 at Firestone three weeks ago. He withdrew from the PGA Championship just before his tee time in the opening round with a sore neck. He landed 14 greens in regulation at Plainfield today and found four birdies, including a conversion from 11'7" at the par-3 11th hole, but he also squared a bogey and a double. Plainfield average a stout 70.882, so Woodland can't complain overall. Plus, he's only four strokes off the pace of the overnight quad-leaders.

Since Gary Woodland will not compete in this week's Wyndham Championship, he'll be in our crosshairs for next week's Barclays.

He withdrew at the last minute before his opening round of last week's PGA Championship with a sore neck. At 32nd in the FedExCup standings, he could feasibly sit out the first two Playoffs events and still advance to the BMW Championship. If that happens, then gamers would obviously be concerned about his ability to play, not to mention his value entering the 2015-16 season. So, keep an eye on his commitment to the field of 125 at Plainfield Country Club when it's released. The bomber tied for 12th when the tournament was first contested in 2011, albeit in advance of a hurricane and shortened to 54 holes.
