Graham DeLaet swallowed his first two bogeys of the week but still managed a 2-under-par 33-35=68 during the second round of The Honda Classic, heading into the weekend in a share of fifth place on 6-under 134.
The Canadian caught fire with the flat stick today. He opened with a 12'11" birdie splash at the par-4 first and converted four more from 13-to-17 feet before the round was over. All these putts were setup by steady ball-striking, landing 15 greens in regulation on the day. At the midpoint, the Canuck ranks T4 in GIR percentage. DeLaet is still searching for his first win on the PGA TOUR but he's in great position heading into the weekend just three strokes off the pace set by Wesley Bryan and Ryan Palmer. Feb 24 - 6:46 PM

Graham DeLaet took care of business at PGA National's Champion Course, firing a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of The Honda Classic.

Starting on the 10th tee, DeLaet opened his day with a 16'9" splash to save par. That putt may have been crucial in terms of building momentum for the remainder of the round. From there, DeLaet stayed patient as he rattled off pars on his opening 11 holes. He uncorked the birdies when he circled an easy one at the par-5 third hole. The Canadian backed it up with a 39'4" hole out from the fringe for birdie at the par-4 fourth, and added birdies at 6 and 8 to reach 4-under by round's end. In five previous trips to PGA National, DeLaet has opened with rounds of 2-over 72 or worse in four of those years. The other was the 2013 edition when he posted a 5-under 65 which ended up as a T9 at the end of the week.

World No. 212 Graham DeLaet labored to an even-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to finish off his seventh appearance on 12-under 272, down six places into a three-way T9.

The 35-year-old, runner-up in 2014, began the final frame in a four-way T3 on 12-under, four back of 54-hole leader Byeong Hun An. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he circled five birdies, including three straight on Nos. 13-15, but erased them with three bogeys and a double bogey-6. The Canadian mustered six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.240 strokes around-the-green and 0.497 on the green. For the week, he carded one eagle and 22 birdies against 10 bogeys, lowlighted by two bogeys in his final three holes, and one double. It is DeLaet's second top 10 of the season in six starts, joining a T8 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms.

World No. 212 Graham DeLaet hung up a 6-under-par 32-33=65 on Moving Day at the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day total of 12-under 201, up eight on the live leaderboard to T3.

The 35-year-old, runner-up in 2014, closed that edition with weekend rounds of 65-65, so today's seven-birdie one-bogey effort matched those for personal bests at TPC Scottsdale (21 rounds). He mustered just six (of 14) fairways but hit 13 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 1.467 putts per GIR and 4.343 SG: Putting at last glance. The Canadian's lone bogey came at the par-4 10th (failed sand save) but erased it with birdies at Nos. 2, 3, 5 (from 24'11"), 11 (48'1"), 14 (41'4"), 16 (15'2") and 18.
Feb 4 - 5:21 PM

Graham DeLaet delivered a colorful scorecard in round two of the Waste Management Open, signing for a 2-under-par 37-32=69 to reach 6-under 136 at the midpoint.

The Canuck opened on the 10th tee and was swimming smoothly after three birdies and an eagle offset a lone bogey on the outward nine. The eagle was truly special as he stuck his 230-yard approach shot to just 4'9" to setup the relatively easy eagle splash. After another birdie at the par-4 second he found himself at 9-under and tied for the led at the time. From there, his irons started getting loose and he bogeyed four of the final six holes. Despite the disappointing finish, DeLaet will enter the weekend inside the top 15 with a great chance to pick up his third top 10 at this event.
Feb 3 - 4:01 PM

Graham DeLaet dished out seven birdies en route to a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in round one of the Farmers Insurance Open.

The Canuck has openly struggled with his short game over the past year, but today his flat stick worked wonders. It wasn't a flawless performance, as he missed four putts from inside 10 feet, but he offset those with three splashes from outside 11 feet. Two of those came from the 22-to-26 foot range, both for birdies. GDL walked off the South Course gaining 3.733 strokes putting on the day. DeLaet is no stranger to success at this event, recording a T9 in 2013 and returning the following year with a T2.

Graham DeLaet has pulled his name from the field at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba, giving first alternate Jonathan Randolph a chance to take on El Camaleón Golf Club.

DeLaet was set to make his first appearance at the OHL Classic since a missed cut in his 2010 debut. There was no reason cited for the mid-week WD, but he's always been open on his social media accounts, so we may find out through that channel. In the mean time, make sure you remove him from all weekly lineups. In his place, Jonathan Randolph will be making his second appearance at this event. He missed the cut in his 2015 debut.

Graham DeLaet stalled out to an even-par 33-39=72 in today's final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to conclude his third appearance on 13-under 275, down five places into a three-way T8.

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, the 34-year-old began the final frame on 13-under, one shy of 54-hole co-leaders Luke List and Chris Kirk. He went out in bogey-free 3-under, circling holes 3, 6 and 9 to lead List and eventual champ Cody Gribble by one at the break. It went south from there for the Canadian, hockey-sticking a 7 at the par-5 11th after hitting his second into the water and then shanking his pitch shot, nearly in the water again. He did manage a birdie-2 at the 13th but not before a bogey-5 at 12 and later, fittingly walked-off with another bogey at the par-4 18th. DeLaet was chasing his first TOUR title in his 150th career start.

Graham DeLaet rebounded from a slow start to card a 4-under-par 37-31=68 in today's third round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to post 13-under 203, up one spot into a three-way T3, one shy of 54-hole co-leaders Luke List and Chris Kirk.

The 34-year-old opened with eight consecutive pars, including a par-saver from 19'4" at the par-5 third, before squaring bogey-5 at the ninth (failed scramble) to turn 1-over. He also canned another par-saver at the par-4 10th (from 15'7"), finally breaking the ice with a two-putt birdie-4 at the 11th. The Boise State alum birdied the par-3 13th (4'8"), kicking off a four-birdie run that ended with a 22'9" birdie-3 at the 16th. He missed from 7'4" at the 17th for a fifth straight but still tossed up a 2.306 in SG: Putting on 13 greens in regulation. The Canadian will play out of the penultimate threesome in Sunday's final round.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Graham DeLaet tacked on a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to post 9-under 135, up four spots on the live leaderboard to T1 and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, DeLaet is in a four-way T4, three adrift of 36-hole leader Grayson Murray.

The 34-year-old kicked off with a 10-footer for birdie-2 at the 10th, gave it back with a failed sand save at the par-4 12th, and dropped a 7'9" birdie-4 at the 14th to turn 1-under. He added back-to-back circles on holes 2 (14'9") and 3 (6'7"), an 8-footer for birdie-2 at the seventh, before walking off with bogey-5 at the ninth (failed scramble). DeLaet improved to 10 (of 14) fairways and dipped slightly to 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.643 putts per GIR and 1.704 SG: Putting at the time he signed his card. He made three par-savers from between five and seven feet to avoid any further damage.

Graham DeLaet displayed his scoring prowess during round one of the Sanderson Farms Championship, concocting a 6-under-par 32-34=66 to find himself three off the pace after the opening 18 holes.

The Canadian has been struggling with his play around the green, but he minimized the damage today by splashing 15 greens in regulation. DeLaet may have been thinking course record after splashing in four birdie putts from 8-to-15 feet to open the day. His flat stick cooled off considerably throughout the round, but he still walked off the course gaining 1.412 strokes putting. DeLaet opened with the same 6-under 66 last year during his debut at the Country Club of Jackson. He went on to post 66→72→69→72=279 to finish T33 by week's end.

Graham DeLaet makes his way to the Country Club of Jackson for this week's opposite-field Sanderson Farms Championship in Mississippi.

This is the 34-year-old's third Sanderson Farms with a T33 here last year and T5 in 2010 (Annandale GC). He arrives off a missed cut (by five) at the Safeway Open (71-75), his third MC in his last four starts dating to last season, which ended with a T78 (last place) at The Barclays and 120th in the FedExCup standings, his second straight first-round exit from the Playoffs. Once ranked as high as 26th in the Official World Golf Ranking (2014), the transplanted Arizonian enters the week 175th.

World No. 145 Graham DeLaet carved out an even-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the Golf Competition at Rio 2016 to post 5-under 137, down four on the live leaderboard to T6, five back of 36-hole leader Marcus Fraser.

The Canadian landed 12 (of 13) fairways for a second consecutive round but digressed to 12 greens in regulation. He opened his scoring with a one-putt double bogey-5 at the fourth -- taking three to get out of a greenside bunker -- and also squared the 13th with a one-putt bogey from 7'9". The 34-year-old balanced the card with three birdies, circling Nos. 7, 10 and 18, including a long of 26'9" at the par-4 seventh, and walking-off with a 16'9" roll for birdie-4 at the 18th.

Canada's Graham DeLaet fired a 5-under-par 31-35=66 during the first round of this week's Olympic Golf Competition.

DeLaet split 12 (of 13) fairways to put himself in position to attack the greens all day. From there he landed 14 greens and made more than his fair share of putts. Most notably, was a 40'11" birdie bomb at the par-3 eight hole. On the PGA TOUR, GDL has six career podium finishes in his career but none since a runner-up finish at the 2014 Waste Management Phoenix Open. DeLaet recently took some time off due to short-game anxiety but he's showing no signs of that through round one of the first Olympic Golf Competition since 1904.

Graham DeLaet is in the published field at this week's Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada. UPDATE: After a 29-day sabbatical, DeLaet returned to competition June 30th in Reno and posted subsequent rounds of 69-74 for 8 points, T60 at the halfway mark.

The 34-year-old is scheduled to return to competition for the first time in six weeks following a missed cut at the Byron Nelson. The early exit at Colonial chased a missed cut at THE PLAYERS and a T77 (tied last) at the Wells Fargo. The Canadian was scheduled to play at Memorial four weeks ago but was a late scratch, alerting his Twitter followers that he was "dealing with incredible anxiety while chipping/pitching..." so a wait-and-see approach is definitely in order. If he does go, it'll be his second start in Reno after a T31 six years ago in 2010.
