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") 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.

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.

Gary Woodland authored a bogey-free 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the weather-delayed third round of the Memorial Tournament for a three-day tally of 14-under 202, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with William McGirt and 36-hole co-leader Matt Kuchar.

This is the first time this season (30th event) that we've had more than two sharing the 54-hole lead. The trio will battle in the final threesome on Sunday as tee times were moved up due to the weather forecast. Woodland began the third frame in a two-way T3 on 11-under, one back of Kuchar and 36-hole co-leader Brendan Steele. He peppered 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, circling two, both from inside of 28 inches, for a pedestrian 1.929 putts per GIR. The 32-year-old added a zero-putt birdie from 20'5" at the par-4 14th to complete his scoring. He's T50 in total birdies with just 13, but he's No. 1 in bogeys with only one (par-5 11th in R2).

Gary Woodland fashioned a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the Memorial to reach 11-under 133, up 10 spots on the live leaderboard to T3, one back of 36-hole co-clubhouse leaders Brendan Steele and Matt Kuchar. UPDATE: With play completed, Woodland's 65 stood as low round of the day.

The 32-year-old's best at Muirfield Village in 17 prior rounds was 68, which he's shot on three prior occasions, including in R1 this week. He obliterated that with six birdies and an eagle-3 camouflaging a lone bogey in R2. Woodland entered the week without a top-10 finish yet this season in 14 events, but posted a season-best T12 in his last start at the Nelson, highlighted by a pair of bogey-free 64s in R2 and R3. He went off No. 10 tee today and squared bogey-6 at 11, but played his final 16 holes in blemish-free 8-under, including the eagle at the 15th (from 32 inches) and four straight circles on Nos. 4-7. Woodland is the current leader in SGP at 5.690 (3.547/R2).
Jun 3 - 1:51 PM

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.
May 13 - 7:51 PM

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.
May 4 - 3:53 PM

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.
Mar 30 - 10:03 PM

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.
Jan 30 - 7:16 PM

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.
Jan 29 - 5:52 PM

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).
