Garth Mulroy returned to Pretoria CC to complete a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round at the Tshwane Open, slotting in at solo fifth on the live leaderboard after reaching the midpoint on 7-under 135.
That's a rise of four spots and puts him three behind clubhouse leaders Alexander Bjork and Scott Jamieson with the morning wave now finished. Play was suspended for 57 minutes at 12.53pm local time, particularly frustrating for Mulroy who was playing the 18th. He eventually jotted down a par to round off a rollercoaster back nine of 34 which featured birdies at 10, 12, 14 and 16 against bogeys at 11 and 13. On the front nine his only deviation from par was a red circle at No. 2. Mulroy, a two-time winner on the (2009 and 2011), is now down at 830th in the world rankings. He's made the cut in all three co-sanctioned events (T37 Alfred Dunhill, T52 South African Open and T38 Joburg Open) when the European Tour has visited his homeland so his strong showing so far isn't too much of a surprise.

Garth Mulroy posted T6 on his last start and goes in search of another good finish in this week's Mauritius Open.

That came in the Eye of Africa PGA Championship and followed top 25s at the Tshwane Open and Dimension Data Pro-Am. The former North Carolina State grad is now down at 468th in the world rankings after peaking at 124. He's a former European Tour winner, who also played on the Tour so, if back to something like his best, he has the class to do well in a low-key event like this.

After starting the 2016 schedule with two missed cuts, Garth Mulroy will hope to shine again at this week's Joburg Open

The South African took second place in this event in both 2008 and 2011, losing a playoff to compatriot Richard Sterne in the former. He also posted T9 at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club in 2013 and T13 last year. By contrast, he's failed to cash in the European Tour's early-season events in his South African homeland. Mulroy slammed his trunk early after a pair of 73s in the Alfred Dunhill Championship before Christmas and he shot 69-79 to miss the cut at last week's BMW South African Open.

Local man Garth Mulroy will play in his 10th BMW South African Open when he pegs it up at Glendower this week.

The 37-year-old has enjoyed some decent success in this tournament with three top 10 finishes. That includes third at Pearl Valley in 2007 and T10 at this week's venue two seasons ago. Mulroy played 2015 on a medical exemption after an injury-hit 2014 and closed out his year strongly with T9 at the Portugal Masters and T8 in the Cape Town Open in two of his final four starts. The former North Carolina State University grad, who once tried his luck on the Tour, will be playing his 92nd European Tour event this week. His finest hour was a two-shot victory in the co-sanctioned Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa so he could be a big factor again on home soil.

Garth Mulroy won the 2011 Alfred Dunhill Championship and is back at Leopard Creek for another crack this week.

His two-shot victory four years ago started a streak of home dominance and South African golfers have now won the last four editions. Mulroy finished third when defending the title in 2012 while he also posted T12 in 2009 so is clearly one to watch at this venue. He recorded a top 10 in the European Tour's Portugal Masters last month while his latest finish is a T8 in the Cape Town Open so he'll head to Leopard Creek in good form.

The 115th U.S. Open will mark Garth Mulroy's second consecutive U.S. Open appearance and third career start in a major championship, teeing it up this week with the USA's Richard Lee and Denmark's Lucas Bjerregaard.

Mulroy finished T40 (9-over-par) in his U.S. Open debut last year on Pinehurst No.2's par-70 layout. He sat T33 after opening rounds of 71-72 and moved to T16 with a third-round 70, but faded on Sunday with a 76. The South African, who turned pro in 2003, plays primarily on the, Sunshine and European Tours, but has honed his craft on several, adding time on the Asian and PGA TOURs as well. A former All-American at North Carolina State, Mulroy owns seven worldwide wins, including two on the Nationwide Tour (now in 2009 and 2011 as well as the 2011 Alfred Dunhill Championship on the European Tour. The 36-year-old's career-best on the PGA TOUR is sixth (2010, Valero Texas Open), and he finished T64 at the 2012 Open Championship in his major championship debut.

Garth Mulroy will make his first competitive start at Pretoria CC when he contests the Tshwane Open.

Most of his South African compatriots have course form at this week's venue due it hosting numerous Sunshine Tour events from 2005-2011 but Mulroy spent those years in the U.S. contesting purses on the PGA TOUR and Web.Com. He should be nicely acclimatized this week, though, having started his season on home soil. Indeed, Mulroy has threatened to be a big factor in the last two weeks after strong opening 36 holes but modest finishes relegated him to T13 in the Joburg Open and T29 in the Africa Open. He played in the 2013 Tshwane Open and finished T16 but that was at a different course.

Garth Mulroy built upon his opening 64 with a second-round 4-under-par 34-34=68 at the tougher East Course to tie the clubhouse lead in the Joburg Open.

The South African, who went to college at North Carolina State University and is a two-time winner on the Tour, circled five birdies against a single bogey at the par 72. When he signed for his card, Mulroy was tied for the halfway lead at 11-under 132 alongside compatriot Tjaart Van Der Walt and England's Simon Dyson. The 36-year-old has a real affection for Royal Johannesburg & Kensington having twice finished runner-up at this venue. Like all those who make the cut, he'll play the final two rounds on the East Course where he's shot as low as 65 in the past.

Double Joburg Open runner-up Garth Mulroy again showed his liking for this event with an opening 7-under-par 32-32=64 on day one.

Cashing in on his one round at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington's easier West Course, the South African circled eight birdies against a single bogey to slot into tied fifth place on a day of low scoring. Mulroy, who went to college at North Carolina State University, is a two-time winner on the Tour so is a class above most of his rivals this week. He now has three rounds on the tougher East Course but he's gone low on that track too, shooting a pair of 66s when runner-up to Richard Sterne in 2008. The 36-year-old also carded a 65 on the tough par 72 when T9 in 2013 so history suggests he's a serious contender for the title again following his fast start.

Garth Mulroy is a two-time runner-up in the Joburg Open and returns to one of his favorite events this week.

The South African native, who went to college at North Carolina State University, posted his second places at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington in 2008 and 2011 while he added in a T9 in 2013. The 36-year-old was struggling for form in the early part of 2015 and failed to cash in the South African Open, Abu Dhabi Championship and Qatar Masters. He turned the corner with a T35 in the Dubai Desert Classic and built some more confidence with a closing 66 to finish T16 in last week's Sunshine Tour event, the Dimension Data Pro-Am. Mulroy is a two-time winner on the Tour (2009 South Georgia Classic and 2011 BMW Charity Pro-Am).

Garth Mulroy's even-par 37-33=70 in the third round of the U.S. Open is the lowest of the day and he remains at 3-over 213.

Mulroy navigated the pitfalls of Pinhurst No. 2 with five birdies to just one bogey and two double bogeys on Saturday. He did so despite missing six fairways and half of his greens in regulation, but needed just 27 putts. Not a bad effort for his first U.S. Open. Expect him to sit back and pull for some carnage for those still on the course, as he tries to move up the leaderboard. He owns the clubhouse lead.

Garth Mulroy will tee it up in his first U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2.

Though a native of South Africa, Mulroy went to college at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, which isn't all that far from Pinehurst, North Carolina. A former member of the PGA TOUR, he's been playing all over the place in 2014. His notable finishes include a T5 at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open on the Tour and a T10 in the Maybank Malaysian Open. He scored his spot in the field this week via the Walton Heath sectional in Surrey, England.

Garth Mulroy spun a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-33=64 in the opening round of the Chile Classic and is in a three-way tie for the lead.

Mulroy circled eight birdies on his opening lap around Price of Wales Country Club. He took advantage of three of the four par 5s. This is his first Tour start of the season. A veteran of 112 Tour previous tournaments, he is a two-time winner.

Garth Mulroy has been removed from the published field of this week's Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.

Mulroy sits 173rd on the PGA TOUR money list, so he won't retain status in 2013 unless he graduates from Q School. He's 71st on the European Tour's Race to Dubai, so he's chosen to compete in this week's Barclays Singapore Open instead.

Garth Mulroy returns to the United States to play in the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Mulroy has been quite the globetrotter in the absence of earning a seat at the FedExCup playoff table, with three appearances in Europe on the ledger. It was a successful journey, as he finished second at the BMW Italian Open. It’s time to get serious back in the U.S., as the native South African ranks 172nd on the money list and has miles to go before he can rock a 2013 PGA TOUR card to bed.
