Graham DeLaet has been removed from the published field of this week's Valspar Championship.
He tied for eighth at Copperhead last year, so this is a mildly concerning decision. We could choose from any numbers of theories, but as far we know, he's stayed healthy since resting over the holiday break. DeLaet last competed at The Honda Classic, but missed the cut. Mar 9 - 11:17 AM

Graham DeLaet swallowed a 2-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the Northern Trust Open to share eighth place at 4-under 280.

DeLaet had his sights set on his first PGA TOUR win at Riviera Country Club, but it wasn't meant to be. His three birdies were more than erased by a trio of bogeys and a double bogey at the par-4 second hole. His two birdies of note were a 12'2" effort on the par-5 11th and a 35'8" bomb on the par-4 13th. He will hope that the lessons learned today lead to a victory in the near future.

Graham DeLaet compiled a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open and trails Retief Goosen by two strokes at 6-under 207 with 18 holes remaining.

The Canadian circled three birdies and an eagle on his trot around Riviera Country Club, but handed back four bogeys on a difficult day of scoring. Somewhat of a surprise was that the putter propped him up. It began with a 17'6" eagle at the par-5 first hole and continued with birdies from 11'7" and 21'5" on the par-5 11th and par-3 16th holes. Considered by many to be among the best current PGA TOUR players without a victory, he will have a chance to drop that dubious distinction on Sunday.

Graham DeLaet fashioned a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the Northern Trust Open to post 5-under 137, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

DeLaet is doing work around the greens this week. He's hit only half of them in regulation, but limited the damage to five bogeys, including only one today. But he's also capitalized on his limited opportunities to break par, doing so 10 times. He's circled five birdies in both rounds. Today's set was highlighted by a hole-out from off the green 17 yards away at the par-3 fourth. Staying healthy has been his nemesis recently, so the golf gods most definitely owe him. Arguably the best talent on the PGA TOUR without a victory, the NTO is his 113th career start.

Graham DeLaet settled for a 4-over-par 38-38=76 in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at Spyglass Hill Golf Club.

He just can't catch a break. After the flu knocked him out before last week's stop at Torrey Pines where he was looking to ride the momentum of a T7 at TPC Scottsdale the week prior, DeLaet opened on the hardest of the trio of tracks co-hosting this week's test. He birdied the par-5 first, but found only one more birdie the rest of the way while squaring four bogeys and a double. His ball-striking was OK, too, as he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, but the score wasn't. Look for him at Pebble Beach Golf Links in tomorrow's second round.
Feb 12 - 4:46 PM

Graham DeLaet has scheduled next week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The Canuck was a Wednesday morning scratch at Torrey Pines due to the flu. If he's ready to get back inside the ropes, he'll be making his first appearance on the Monterey Peninsula since 2012. He'll be a week removed from a T7 at the WM Phoenix Open, and the flu is always better than an injury that can influence the golf swing, so consider him as a mild sleeper next week.
Feb 6 - 6:36 PM

Graham DeLaet has withdrawn from this week's Farmers Insurance Open due to the flu.

And just when he had found consistently strong form again. DeLaet tied for seventh at the WM Phoenix Open. Combined with top 10s in the last two editions of the Farmers, including a co-runner-up last year, he would have populated many a fantasy lineup at Torrey Pines. If there's a bright side, it's that he made his decision 24 hours before the opening round is scheduled to begin and not on the morning of.
Feb 4 - 10:16 AM

Graham DeLaet crafted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to end his week at 11-under 273.

DeLaet circled five birdies and squared one bogey on his final lap around TPC Scottsdale. A 29'8" birdie on the par-4 edged out his 17'10" effort on the par-4 fifth hole for the highlight. Known as a GIR machine, his 14 in the final round counts for average at best. Expect him to be a presence at the Farmers Insurance Open next week. he tied for second there a year ago.
Feb 1 - 4:49 PM

Graham DeLaet posted a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to reach the 54-hole mark at 8-under 205.

The Canuck began his lap around TPC Scottsdale with three consecutive birdies, all outside of 10 feet and highlighted by a 28'7" effort on the par-4 second hole. He gave two of them back on the next two holes, but ended his front nine with a birdie on the par-4 ninth. While the back nine offers plenty of scoring opportunities, GDL converted just one of them into a birdie. That was a short one at the par-5 13th. He ended his day with a bogey on 18, but remains in the mix for a top-10 finish.
Jan 31 - 5:09 PM

Graham DeLaet held on for a 1-over-par 35-35=70 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and improves to 5-under 137 for the tournament.

The conditions went from bad to worse at TPC Scottsdale on Friday, with the morning wave looking like they had the best of the weather. DeLaet was in the first group off the 10th tee in the second wave, and he opened with a 29'8" bomb for birdie on the 10th hole. He then traded two birdies for two bogeys for the remainder of the back nine, and then watched his 13'10" birdie on the par-3 fourth and a closing birdie on the ninth hole erased by a pair of bogeys.
Jan 30 - 6:30 PM

Graham DeLaet began his week in the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a 4-under-par 34-33=67 and is the early clubhouse leader.

DeLaet circled five birdies to just one bogey on his lap around TPC Scottsdale, landing an impressive 16 GIR. All of his birdies fell from inside of eight feet, so a combination of proximity and finding birdies on each of the three par 5s were the key to his round. He tied for second in this event last year, so it is no surprise he started the week with a solid effort.
Jan 29 - 2:15 PM

Graham DeLaet improved to a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii but missed the cut on the number at 1-under 139.

He needed to sink his second into the par-5 ninth today to play on, but DeLaet "settled" for an eagle from 11'3" on what was his final hole of the week. For the week, he hit 22 greens in regulation and added six birdies against seven birdies. He'll try again at next week's Humana Challenge. Other notables that failed to survive today's cut at Waialae include: 139--2007 champ Paul Goydos; Tony Finau; Brendon de Jonge; Danny Lee ... 140--J.B. Holmes; Hudson Swafford; Hiroshi Iwata ... 141--2005 champ Vijay Singh ... 144--2012 champ Johnson Wagner.

Graham DeLaet settled for a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

DeLaet is embarking on a five-start-in-six-week stretch in the wake of a neck injury that knocked him out of his last two starts in Asia. As a result of the time off due to injury, you'd expect him to be off, and he was. He split only five (of 14) fairways and hit only nine greens in regulation. DeLaet failed to save par five times and squared bogeys on each occasion. He buried three birdies, but his only notable conversion dropped for par from 13'5" at the par-3 seventh hole.
Jan 15 - 10:59 PM

Graham DeLaet is expected to compete in next week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

A neck injury forced DeLaet to withdraw during both no-cut events in Asia last fall. He hasn't played since, but that's about to change. The Canuck is planning to play five of the next six weeks, missing only the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. "It really takes its toll," he said. "You get to the end of the year and everyone is pretty banged up ... hips, knees, backs. You don't think of golf as an impact sport but it is. ... I've been playing golf six days a week in December and January with no problems. Really I'm healthy, or at least as healthy as I'm going to be." Gamers have reason to be skeptical and patient, but DeLaet remains at or at least near the top of best talents without a PGA TOUR victory.
Jan 8 - 11:11 AM

Graham DeLaet withdrew from his most recent two PGA TOUR scheduled starts and is 164th in the FedExCup standings.

DeLaet's neck was the culprit of his WDs in the no-cut CIMB Classic and WGC-HSBC Champions. While a date for his return is still uncertain, it doesn't appear that he is headed for a lengthy stint on the shelf. Wisdom dictates a wait-and-see approach before investing too much trust in him for weekly formats.
