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. Nov 24 - 5:34 AM

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.
Mar 11 - 5:21 AM

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.
Feb 27 - 5:52 AM

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.
Feb 26 - 9:32 AM

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).
Feb 24 - 4:08 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.

Garth Mulroy spun a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing two strokes off Vijay Singh's overnight lead.

The South African hit 12 greens and poured in a field-tying-high eight birdies, four on each side of The Old White TPC. The notables disappeared from 11'2" and 11'11" at the 13th and sixth holes, respectively, but his longest conversion was a par save of 13'5" at 15. He entered the week 5-for-11 on the season with no top 25s and ranked 181st in the FedExCup standings.

Garth Mulroy carded a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship, finishing three strokes back of the clubhouse lead.

Mulroy had to call it quits after only nine holes in Memphis two weeks ago due to a back injury. In 27 previous rounds on the PGA TOUR this year, he's signed for just two rounds in the 60s, both of which 69s, so today's effort is relatively impressive. He hit 12 greens and buried four birdies, the longest of which from 20'4" at the 12th hole. He started his round with a four-yard hole-out for par from off the green at the 10th.

Garth Mulroy is listed in the published field of next week's Travelers Championship.

A back injury bumped the South African from last week's St. Jude after just nine holes. He's currently 197th in FedExCup points thanks to four cuts made in just 10 starts. He's 0-for-1 at the Travelers (2010).

Garth Mulroy withdrew at the turn during his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic due to a back injury.

Kyle Veazey of The Commercial Appeal reported the information on Twitter. Mulroy went out in birdie-free, 7-over-par 42 with five bogeys and a double before calling it quits. He's now 4-for-10 on what continues to be a disappointing season after a career year in 2011.
