Ryo Ishikawa opened The Barclays with a 4-under-par 35-32=67 to establish very early possession of the clubhouse lead.
Ishikawa went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Ridgewood Country Club this morning. He went 6-for-7 in scrambling with one bogey while finding five birdies, including four consecutive beginning at the par-3 second hole. His most impressive birdies rolled 21'8" and 15'1" at Nos. 13 and 4, respectively, but his longest conversion of the walk dropped for par from 26'4" at the par-4 11th. Ishikawa entered his first FedExCup Playoffs at 75th in points, so he knew that he'd get at least two starts to make hay. Aug 21 - 11:56 AM

Ryo Ishikawa finished off a wild ride around Sedgefield Country Club with an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship.

Most players that shoot even-par 280 for a tournament tend to to record all of their rounds around level par. Not the case for Ishikawa. Though he opened and closed with 70s, his second-round 62 was 16 strokes lower than a third-round 78. The highlight of his final round was a 37'3" birdie at the par-3 16th.

Ryo Ishikawa blitzed Sedgefield Country Club's Donald Ross Course for nine birdies en route to an 8-under-par 33-29=62 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship.

And he opened with a bogey at the par-4 first hole! Ishikawa wound hit 16 greens in regulation thereafter and sign his card with a strokes gained-putting clip north of 2.045. He birdied both par 5s. Only two of his conversions traveled longer than eight feet, first from 13'7" at the fourth hole, and then from 14'1" at No. 10, both par 4s. This goes in the books as his lowest round on the PGA TOUR, eclipsing his previous by two strokes (third round, 2011 WGC-Bridgestone). The Bashful Prince is a month away from turning 23 years of age. In the meantime, he'll sleep positioned just two strokes off the pace of the overnight co-leaders in Greensboro.

Ryo Ishikawa readies for his sixth PGA Championship appearance this week at Valhalla Golf Club.

The Japanese star has finished outside the top 50 in five of his last six worldwide starts, but his other start yielded a victory on the Japan Golf Tour at the Nagashima Shigeo Invitational Sega Sammy Cup. The victory went in the books as his 11th on the Japan Golf Tour, but his success has yet to transition to the states. With just one top 25 in 18 major championship appearances, Ishikawa should not be relied on this week.

Ryo Ishikawa has gained entry into next week's Open Championship.

Ishikawa was the first alternate when Steve Stricker withdrew today. The 22-year-old from Japan will be making already his fifth appearance in the major. He's 1-for-4 with a T27 at St. Andrews in 2010.

Ryo Ishikawa returns to TPC River Highlands this week, after missing the cut in his 2012 Travelers Championship debut.

The Japanese star owns 15 top-30 finishes worldwide since the beginning of the 2013-14 wraparound season, eight of those coming on the PGA TOUR. Strength of field aside, that many high finishes is sure to yield confidence, making Ishikawa a threat to breakthrough any time he tees it up. He currently ranks 49th in the FedExCup standings.

Ryo Ishikawa has moved to first alternate for this week's PLAYERS.

Even if J.B. Holmes didn't win the Wells Fargo Championship, Ishikawa's fate was all but sealed by the weekend as Holmes needed to finish only solo 63rd or better to crack the field at TPC Sawgrass. The Bashful Prince was the last man in the field of 144 for THE PLAYERS, so he's the odd man out as the result of Holmes' qualification.

Ryo Ishikawa tied for 48th in the RBC Heritage last year, and is back for a second tour of Harbour Town Golf Links this week.

Ishikawa currently ranks 30th in the FedExCup standings. While he has yet to achieve the level of success on the PGA TOUR that he has in Japan, he's trending much better than he was last season. He is 37th in the all-around ranking, meaning his strengths are many and his weaknesses few.

Ryo Ishikawa battled for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, cracking the top 10 at 8-under 280.

The Japanese star bagged five birdies, handing back a pair of bogeys and a double bogey in the process. Perhaps his highlight occurred on the difficult par-4 18th. He spun his approach to a stop 3'2" from the cup after flying the water to the back right pin position. This is his third top-10 finish of the 2013-14 season.
Mar 23 - 5:45 PM

Ryo Ishikawa conjured a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and enters the finale inside the top 10 at 7-under 209.

Ishikawa was rather uninspiring on his front nine at Bay Hill, with two bogeys more than erasing his lone birdie. The inward nine was a different story, as he was without a blemish and picked up three birdies. He entered the week 29th in the FedExCup standings, so this is a continuation of a solid PGA TOUR season.

Ryo Ishikawa followed his opening 65 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 2-over-par 35-39=74 to post 5-under 137, two strokes adrift of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Bashful Prince went just 1-for-12 in par-breaker opportunities with a birdie from just 55 inches at the par-5 fourth hole, but he found another birdie when he holed out from a greenside bunker 16 yards away at the par-4 15th. Ishikawa was bogey-free 1-under through 10, but penciled in a 4 at the par-3 second, and then doubled the par-4 third after rinsing his approach and whiffing on a bogey attempt from just 51 inches. A closing bogey at the par-4 ninth added insult to a bruised ego.

Ryo Ishikawa fashioned a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, finishing three strokes off Adam Scott's clubhouse lead.

Ishikawa was in the third threesome off the first tee in the late draw today, but he stands alone in second place as the remaining groups come in. He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, picking off eight birdies along the way. Three of them ranged 12-15 feet, he added a par save from 12'1" at 9 and he missed just one attempt from inside 13 feet. He walked off with a strokes gained-putting split north of 2.750.
Mar 20 - 5:22 PM

Ryo Ishikawa spun a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to end his week at 1-over 285.

He struck hard on the Copperhead Course early, circling four birdies without a blemish on the front nine. After surrounding a birdie at par-5 11th with bogeys on 10 and 12, he played his last six holes with all pars. Considering he'd yet to finish any better than 71st in five previous attempts to tame Copperhead, this week was a marked improvement.
Mar 16 - 12:32 PM

Ryo Ishikawa is set for his sixth Valspar Championship this week.

Ishikawa enters fresh off a T19 in the Puerto Rico Open, but the Copperhead Course has often bitten him. After finishing 71st in 2009, he has missed the subsequent four cuts. He is currently 30th in the FedExCup standings.

Ryo Ishikawa has gained entry into this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Ishikawa rose to first alternate on Monday, but had to wait until tonight to secure a tee time when Dudley Hart withdrew. The Bashful Prince tied for seventh last week at Torrey Pines and sits a lofty 14th in FedExCup points. He missed the cut in his debut at TPC Scottsdale last year, but his form is too strong right now to ignore. Do not give up your seat on his bandwagon. Look for him on the first tee at 7:39 a.m. MT on Thursday.
