Sang-moon Bae cracked the top 125 of the FedExCup standing just in time to earn a spot into the Playoffs at The Barclays.
Bae was the only player on the outside of the top 125 looking in at the Wyndham Championship last week to move inside the number. His T14 ultimately displaced Nicholas Thompson. Bae now ranks 120th, so he must continue to turn in low numbers at Ridgewood CC this week if he is to move on to face TPC Boston in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Aug 19 - 2:18 PM

Sang-moon Bae closed out his week at the Wyndham Championship with a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in the final round to share 14th at 11-under 269.

His seven birdies outpaced a bogey and a double bogey. Among the highlights were birdies from 10'11" and 16'3" on the par-5 fifth hole and the par-3 16th hole. His strong finish, which was a bogey-free 4-under back nine, was just enough to boost him from 126th in the FedExCup standings to 120th. By moving inside the top 125, he is now eligible for the Playoffs.

Sang-moon Bae has been removed from the published field of this week's Barracuda Championship.

Bae is 123rd in both FedExCup points and earnings, but he's fully exempt through next season by virtue of his breakthrough victory at the 2013 HP Byron Nelson Championship. While he risks falling outside the bubble for the Playoffs with only one tournament remaining (Wyndham), those near him in the standings don't mind today's decision one bit.

Sang-moon Bae posted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The South Korean has yet to add a top 10 on the PGA TOUR since his breakthrough victory at the 2013 HP Byron Nelson Championship, but he's currently 119th in FedExCup points thanks to a pair of top-15 finishes and another two top 25s. Today at The Old White TPC, he offset three bogeys with seven birdies, three of which from outside 10 feet. The longest measured 24'4" at the par-4 fourth hole. Bae also rolled in a par save from 21'2" at the par-4 14th where he found trouble off the tee.

Sang-moon Bae hopes to cash his first paycheck at the Travelers Championship later this week.

His first two trips to TPC River Highlands have resulted in missed cuts, and he's failed to break par in any of his four rounds. Bae ranks 123rd in the FedExCup standings and is in serious jeopardy of missing out on the Playoffs if he can't put together some good finishes down the stretch. His win in the 2013 HP Byron Nelson Championship has him exempt on the PGA TOUR through 2014-15.

Sang-moon Bae just didn't have it in his title defense of the HP Byron Nelson Championship where he settled for 7-over-par 73-74=147 to miss the cut by six strokes.

After Thursday's roller-coaster ride, Bae went just 1-for-8 in birdie opportunities today. He squared three bogeys and closed with a double-bogey 6 at the 18th hole. Other notables that fell short at TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas include: 142--Ryan Moore ... 143--Brandt Snedeker; Harris English; Freddie Jacobson ... 144--Brooks Koepka ... 145--Marcel Siem ... 146--Erik Compton; Robert Streb ... 147--Brian Stuard.
May 16 - 8:48 PM

Sang-moon Bae opened his title defense of the HP Byron Nelson Championship with a 3-over-par 38-35=73.

Bae split only five (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation. He circled five birdies, including a conversion from 22'1" at the par-4 10th hole where he began his loop of Las Colinas. He also holed out for birdies from 14 yards out at the par-4 sixth. However, he also swallowed six bogeys and a double before finishing seven strokes off the clubhouse lead. Overall, Bae fanned on four tries inside eight feet.

Sang-moon Bae will defend his lone PGA TOUR title at this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Bae is 102nd in the current FedExCup standings, so he could use a solid showing in his return to TPC Four Seasons in order to lock up a spot in the FEC Playoffs later this year. While he's made his last three cuts leading up to this event, none of them cracked the top 30. At 166th in GIR, the irons have been the problem this season. He's 15th in strokes gained-putting, so the flat stick is cooperating when called upon.
May 12 - 10:06 PM

Sang-moon Bae settled for a 1-over-par 38-35=73 in his second round of THE PLAYERS.

The South Korean landed only nine greens in regulation and incurred three bogeys and a double, but he rallied for four birdies, including at holes 8 and 9 where he concluded his round. Three of his par breakers disappeared from outside 10 feet, the longest stretching 15'10" at 12. At 5-under 139, he's seven strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 9 - 1:55 PM

Sang-moon Bae spun a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS.

Bae came tearing out of the gates today with a birdie-eagle start at the first and second holes. He gave back a shot at the par-4 fifth, but rebounded with bogey-free 4-under (four birdies) the rest of the way. Ironically, his only conversion outside nine feet dropped for par from 12'5" at the par-4 sixth. He's three strokes back of the overnight lead and alone in third place.
May 8 - 7:34 PM

Sang-moon Bae opened the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a 4-under-par 34-34=68, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Bae was the first to sign for as low a score out of today's late draw. He hit only 11 greens in regulation, yet his only bogey occurred at the par-5 18th hole where he found a greenside bunker with his third and blasted out to just outside 20 feet from where he'd two-putt. Otherwise, he was nails in picking off five birdies, including runs of 22'10", 14'6" and 19'10" at Nos. 10, 13 and 14, respectively. He also holed a par conversion from four yards just off the green at 6. This is exactly the kind of shot in the arm he needed after missing his last three cuts.
Apr 24 - 6:55 PM

Sang-moon Bae is back at Augusta National for his second start at the Masters.

Bae debuted at Augusta National in 2012 with a T37 finish. The South Korean is 4-for-8 in his career at major championships, but is still searching for his first top 25 at a major. Bae currently ranks 9th in strokes gained-putting but he will need a great week with his irons if he wants to contend.
Apr 9 - 10:39 AM

Sang-moon Bae spun a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Valspar Championship.

Bae picked up six birdies to just two bogeys on his romp around the Copperhead Course. This isn't the first time he's made a splash here, tying for second in 2012. He finishes the week at 1-under 283. While there are plenty of players still on the course, it appears likely he will wind up with a top-25 finish.
Mar 16 - 12:49 PM

Sang-moon Bae stumbled to a 1-over-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open, and now trails William McGirt by four strokes at 8-under 205.

Bae's round never gathered much momentum in either direction. Despite picking up three birdies and surrendering four bogeys, he was never better than 1-under or worse than 1-over at any point. He hit half of his fairways and found 11 GIR, but the real story was the drop in efficiency with his flat stick. After gaining 1.153 and 3.578 strokes with the putter in the first and second rounds respectively, he lost .886 on Saturday. He'll have some work to do if he is to notch his second PGA TOUR win in as many seasons.
Feb 15 - 6:11 PM

Sang-moon Bae cruised to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Northern Trust Open to assume sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 9-under 133.

The field's scoring average in the opening round was 71.479. That's just +0.479 strokes to par, but there were no bogey-free scores. Not only was Bae able to break through, but he went 7-for-7 in scrambling. His longest par save measured 13'7" at the par-3 fourth hole. It complemented five birdies, including rolls from 26'3" and 19'9" at the third and 16th holes, respectively. He signed his card with a strokes gained-putting split just shy of 3.500 for the round.
