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. Sep 21 - 4:02 PM

World No. 43 Gary Woodland crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the BMW Championship to reach 8-under 134, up eight places on the live leaderboard to T6, five shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jason Day.

The 33-year-old has recorded four top-25 finishes in his five previous appearances but is still chasing his first top 10 (T16/2011). He opened with 67 and along with today's 67, has shot that number four times in this tourney, his low-water mark. The Kansas alum landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 0.846 strokes off-the-tee and 0.850 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 16, camouflaged by five circles at 1, 8, 10, 14 and 15, two from between 11 and 14 feet. Woodland registered 1.733 putts per GIR and 1.001 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.

World No. 44 Gary Woodland submitted a 2-under-par 34-35=69 after the third round of the 99th PGA Championship for a 54-hole tally of 2-under 211, up 10 places to T7, five in arrears of leader Kevin Kisner.

After opening in 68-74, the 33-year-old began T17 on even-par, eight adrift of co-leaders Kisner and Hideki Matusyama. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.764 SG: Off-the-Tee and 0.630 SG: Approach-the-Green, though -1.313 SG: Around-the-Green. The Kansas alum outpaced three bogeys at holes 3, 6 (3-putt from 58'5") and 16, with five circles at 2, 4, 8, 10 and 14, two from between 11 and 30 feet. He registered 1.769 putts per GIR and 2.119 SG: Putting, needing 28 total putts. Woodland's best finish in 23 previous majors is T12 two times, at the 2011 PGA (Atlanta Athletic Club) and most recently at the 2016 Open at Royal Troon.

Gary Woodland styled a first round 3-under-par 32-36=68 to claim a very early share of the clubhouse lead in the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club.

The 33-year-old is 6-for-6 on the Charlotte, North Carolina layout, but it took him four years to truly get to grips with it – the first time he cracked the top 60. He’s been top 25 the last three years he’s played it, but this is his first sub-70 opening lap. He found only 10 of 18 greens in regulation, but two of those he found on the front nine led to birdie: from 8’9" at No. 2 and 23’4" at No. 6. The par-5 seventh saw him get up-and-down for birdie, as did another long hole, the 15th. But when he missed the green at 16 he couldn’t retrieve the situation and made his only bogey of the day. He gained 2.809 strokes on the field on the greens (ranked third). When he signed his card he was T2 on the leaderboard with only Thornbjorn Olesen ahead of him on 4-under through 16 holes. It's only his third round in the 60s in 17 PGA Championship laps.

World No. 47 Gary Woodland tacked on a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude on 19-under 269, down one spot to solo 4th, two adrift of a two-man playoff involving 54-hole leader Charley Hoffman and defending and now back-to-back champ Jhonattan Vegas.

This was the 33-year-old's third RBC and first finish inside the top 60, posting T61 on last visit in 2013. It's his sixth top 25 of the season in 20 starts, first since T2 12 starts ago at the Honda, fifth top 10 and fourth top 5. After kicking off in 70-63-68, the Kansas alum began in a two-way T3 on 15-under, two back of Hoffman. He conjured six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 3.182 strokes tee-to-green, No. 1 in SG: TTG with a cumulative 14.548. Woodland squared holes 5, 7 (3-putt from 37'6") and 14, outpaced by seven birdies at 2-4, 9 (from 20'0"), 13, 16 and 18, posting 1.769 putts per GIR and -0.656 SG: Putting, taking 30 total putts. He missed eagle at the 72nd hole from 5'3" and missed birdie at the 71st hole from 5'11", had both dropped, he would have joined the playoff.

World No. 47 Gary Woodland signed for a 4-under-par 34-34=68 after the third round of the RBC Canadian Open for a three-day total of 15-under 201, down one spot into a two-way T3, two short of leader Charley Hoffman.

After kicking off in 70 and career-tying-low 63, the 33-year-old began T2 on 11-under, one back of 36-hole leader Martin Flores. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he found eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 2.913 SG: Tee-to-Green, No. 1 in SGTTG with a cumulative 11.366. He carded seven birdies at holes 2, 4, 8, 12, 13, 16 and 17, all from inside of seven feet, taking some luster off with bogey-5 at 14, missed par-saver from four feet, and double bogey-6 at 3 after a penalty drop from an errant tee ball. The Kansas alum recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and -1.202 SG: Putting, 64th in SGP out of 76 players thru 54 holes.

Gary Woodland torched Glen Abbey Golf Club in round two of the RBC Canadian Open, styling a 9-under-par 31-32=63, good for the low round of the day (and week) while falling one shy of the course record and positioning himself just one off the 36-hole lead on 11-under 133.

Woodland landed just 13 greens in regulation, but that number is very misleading. The big hitter gained 3.687 strokes approaching-the-green as he setup birdie looks from inside 14 feet on 12 holes. In the middle of his round he strung together six straight birdies, starting at the 15th, a career-best birdie streak for him which included a 26'8" bunker hole out at the par-5 18th. Woodland was chasing down the course record of 62 (fired by four golfers, most recently John Merrick in 2013) but he'll glady take a 10-birdie 63. This goes in the books as the fourth time Woodland has signed for a round of 63 during his PGA TOUR career, with the latest coming in R2 of the 2015 Byron Nelson. The Kansas Jayhawk product is now just one off the pace as he searches for his third career victory.

Gary Woodland made a big jump up the leaderboard in round two of The 146th Open, styling a 1-under-par 34-35=69 to reach the weekend on 1-under 139, up 33 spots on the live leaderboard.

Woodland traded two birdies with two bogeys in his opening round, failing to take advantage of his length on the par 5s, recording pars on both. Today he circled an early eagle but it wasn't at a par 5. Instead, it came as a hole out at the short par-4 fifth hole, one of three eagles recorded at that hole so far. Woodland gave both strokes back with consecutive bogeys but added two more circles on his homeward nine. This will be the first time Woodland has positioned himself inside the top 10 at the midpoint of a major (T12 thru R2 at the 2009 U.S. Open). He's also never finished better than T12 in a major (2016 Open, 2011 PGA Championship) so this weekend provides a nice opportunity for Woodland as he enters in a share of seventh place.

Over the weekend Gary Woodland witnessed the birth of his first child and will now take a pass on the upcoming Quicken Loans National to spend some quality time with the young one.

Woodland and his wife had some noted complications with their pregnancy, losing one of the twins that were due later in the summer. Over the weekend, they introduced Jaxson Lynn Woodland to the world, arriving 10 weeks early, as noted in his Twitter post. This is great news for the Woodland family after a tough spring. Woodland's timeline for a return is unknown at the moment. Chris Stroud will take his spot in the field at the Quicken Loans National.

Gary Woodland conceded his second round match against Rory McIlroy and withdrew from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, citing personal reasons. UPDATE: Woodland returned to action at the 81st Masters and recorded rounds of 75-80= 155 (+11), leading to a missed cut.

There was no press conference like Jason Day yesterday, but this is another reminded that these golfers are all battling external factors week in and week out. Woodland had started his week with a 3-and-2 victory over Emiliano Grillo but won't play another match this week, leaving the door open for Group 2 where Soren Kjeldsen and Rory McIlroy currently have 1 point. If Kjeldsen collects at least half a point against Grillo today then the Dane will advance onto the Round of 16. UPDATE: Woodland shared some very sad news on Twitter, "...there were complications with our recently announced pregnancy with twins. Gabby and I have since had to cope with the heartbreaking loss of one of the babies." He would later add that he currently plans to return at next week's Masters.

World No. 41 Gary Woodland handed in a 1-under-par 34-35=69 after the final round of The Honda Classic for a four-day tally of 8-under 272, up one spot to joint second, four shy of 54-hole leader and would-be-champ Rickie Fowler, and his eighth career runner-up in 182 events, second this season.

This was the 32-year-old's fifth Honda, second top 25 and second top 10 (T6/2011). After beginning 71-66-66, he kicked off in a five-way T3 on 7-under, six back of Fowler. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, the Kansas alum striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.439 strokes tee-to-green but just 0.006 approaching-the-green. He played his first half in 1-under, outpacing bogey-5 at nine (failed scramble) with birdies at Nos. 1 and 3, trimming Fowler's lead to two. Woodland circled the 11th from 16'3" and climbed within one after birdie-3 at 13, but stalled out from there, finishing with a 3-putt bogey at 17 (from 21'6") and a walk-off 6 at the par-5 18th after putting his second into the drink. For the week, he carded one eagle and 16 birdies against six bogeys and two doubles. It's his fifth top 25 this season in eight starts, fourth top 10, and second runner-up, joining solo 2nd at the OHL Classic in Nov., where he was the 54-hole leader

World No. 41 Gary Woodland styled a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in today's third round of The Honda Classic to throw 7-under 203 on the board, currently T5 and up 12 places on the day.

The 32-year-old cards his second straight 66, outpacing a lone bogey-4 at seven with birdies at Nos. 3, 12 and 16, capping with a walk-off 3 at the par-5 18th from 14 feet. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and mustered just nine greens in regulation, but made amends with the flat stick, posting 2.184 SG: Putting and required only 24 putts. The Kansas alum's three birdies dropped from inside of 11 feet and avoided any further damage with two par-savers from between eight and 17 feet.

After an opening 1-over 71, World No. 41 Gary Woodland rallied for a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's second round of The Honda Classic for a two-day total of 3-under 137, up 68 spots on the live leaderboard to T16.

The 32-year-old improves to 5-for-5 at PGA National's Champion Course. In his prior four visits, he's logged just one finish inside the top 60, a T6 in 2011. Along with three bogeys in R1, the Kansas alum ate double bogey-6 at the 11th to outbalance three birdies. He circled six in R2, taking some luster off with double at the par-4 12th. For a second straight round, Woodland striped 11 (of 14) fairways and improved one to 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.853 SG: Putting. His split featured three from between eight and 12 feet, adding a 38-foot bomb for birdie-3 at six.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 45 Gary Woodland carded a career-best 10 birdies en route to a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a four-day total of 12-under 275, up 12 places to T4 with play still in progress, and the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Woodland's 65 was the low lap of the day and he finished in a three-way T5, seven shy of champion Jordan Spieth.

The 32-year-old was making just his third appearance after missed cuts in 2011 and 2009. He arrived off a missed cut last week in Scottsdale but preceded that with three top-20 finishes, two for top 10s, including solo 2nd at the OHL back in mid-November. The Kansas alum striped 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation, posting a sterling 1.357 putts per GIR and 2.438 SG: Putting. He squared three bogeys at holes 1, 8 and 9 (failed scrambles) but carded five birdies on each nine, capped by a 23'9" roll for a walk-off 4 at the 18th. For the week, Woodland had 19 birdies, despite none in R2 (Spyglass Hill), versus seven bogeys, and sets his career low in birdies in his 610th career round.

World No. 41 Gary Woodland finished birdie-eagle for a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's third round of the Farmers Insurance Open and a 54-hole total of 5-under 211, up 19 places to T16 with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old was sleepwalking at even-par thru 16 holes (one birdie, one bogey) before dropping a 5-footer for birdie-3 at 17 and capped with a hole-out eagle at the par-5 18th from a greenside bunker (33'3"away). The late rally made amends for a dismal day on the greens, posting 1.857 putts per GIR and -1.998 SG: Putting on six (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation.
