Graham DeLaet stumbled all over the place in his opening round of The Barclays, settling for a 7-over-par 37-41=78.
His tee-to-green precision and recent form projected a big week. And with top fives in the last two editions of this tournament (albeit not at Ridgewood Country Club), he's had no issue making an early statement. Today, he split only seven (of 14) fairways and found 10 greens in regulation. DeLaet circled three birdies, including rolls of 23'9" and 24'10" at the seventh and 10th holes, respectively, but he penciled in five bogeys, one double and a triple. The carnage included a penalty following his tee ball at the par-4 11th (site of the triple bogey) and six whiffs from inside eight feet. The only bright side is that he arrived sitting 28th in points, so he's a virtual lock to advance to the BMW Championship regardless of his results the first two weeks. Aug 21 - 5:25 PM

Graham DeLaet turned in a 3-under-par 36-32=68 at Valhalla Golf Club in the third round of the PGA Championship and shares 10th at 8-under 205 through 54 holes.

After the Canuck swallowed two bogeys and a double bogey to just one birdie over his first seven holes, he became an afterthought. He battled back with six birdies over his final 11 holes, including four consecutive beginning with the par-4 eighth, to regain relevance. Five of his birdies fell from between 11 and 18 feet, which is a bit of a surprise. DeLaet is known as one of the best, if not the best, ball-strikers on the PGA TOUR, but his flat stick generally holds him back. He trails Rory McIlroy by five strokes entering Sunday.

Graham DeLaet added a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the PGA Championship to reach the midpoint in 5-under 137, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

DeLaet experienced quite a bit of the gamut for one walk around Valhalla. He poured in six birdies, three of which from at least 11 feet. The longest of the conventional measured 17'6" at the par-4 17th hole. He also holed out twice from just off the putting surface, doing at at Nos. 3 and 4. Call it evening the score with the golf gods since he four-putted the par-4 second from just 27'7" for double bogey.

Graham DeLaet turned in a 2-under-par 34-35=69 for his opening round of the PGA Championship.

This is a relief after he had to call it quits before the final at Firestone on Sunday due to the flu. DeLaet set the tone right out of the gate at Valhalla today with a birdie conversion from 15'6" at the par-4 first hole. He exchanged four birdies with three bogeys the rest of the way. His most impressive birdie was a 10-yard hole-out from off the green at the par-4 sixth. He also rolled another in conventionally from 11'1" at 16. The Canuck tagged on a par save from 13'1" at the par-4 ninth for good measure. He's in the books just four strokes off the overnight lead.

Graham DeLaet withdrew from the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational prior to his final round, citing the flu.

The Canadian was scheduled to tee off at 10:35 a.m. ET. He was in the hunt with rounds of 67 and 69 at the par-70 Firestone Country Club to start the week, but inexplicably faded with a 76 on Saturday. With an illness, the poor round makes a lot more sense. He is in the field for the PGA Championship later this week, and his recovery should be closely monitored as it relates to his chances at Valhalla.
Aug 3 - 11:42 AM

Graham DeLaet backed up his opening 67 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 1-under-par 33-36=69.

He hit only 11 greens in regulation today, but managed to bury five birdies, including a 25-footer at the par-3 15th hole. Four bogeys stung, but DeLaet thwarted another with a par conversion from 15'6" at the par-4 first. He walked off with consecutive bogeys at 8 and 9, so that disappointment may linger. At 4-under 136, he's three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 1 - 1:23 PM

Graham DeLaet crafted a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

While a T7 at the RBC Canadian Open is disappointing only because it occurred in his national championship, the Canuck promptly turned the page and carried over the form that has led to seven top 10s this season. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation in his debut at Firestone. DeLaet circled three birdies including rolls of 21'9" and 20'1" at Nos. 1 and 7, respectively. He signed his card sitting three strokes off the overnight lead.
Jul 31 - 5:05 PM

Graham DeLaet carded a 2-under-par 36-32=68 to conclude the RBC Canadian Open at 10-under 270.

The putter stayed cold for the Canuck as he made just three putts outside of six feet, and three-putted the par-3 fifth for bogey. That will remain the issue for DeLaet as he continues to search for his maiden PGA TOUR victory. As a consolation, his T7 finish this week bested Brad Fritsch by one stroke for the title of low-Canadian this week. His previous best in his country's national championship was T46, so he's certainly making strides.
Jul 27 - 3:49 PM

Graham DeLaet settled for an even-par 36-34=70 to remain at 8-under 202 through 54 holes.

The Canuck had a wild ride around Royal Montreal today, offsetting four bogeys with an eagle, two birdies, and a handful of near misses. The putts just weren't falling today, as he went 3-for-12 in par breaker attempts, and saw a 6.260 decline in his strokes gained-putting from Friday. Poor round aside, DeLaet is sitting in a share of fifth place after three rounds and is set to shatter his previous best of T46 at the Canadian Open.
Jul 26 - 6:50 PM

Graham DeLaet torched the Blue Course at Royal Montreal Golf Club for a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 8-under 132 at the break and sit two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

This year's edition of the tournament marks the 60th anniversary since Pat Fletcher was the last Canadian to win his national championship. DeLaet's form has been inconsistent of late, but at 38th in the Official World Golf Ranking, he's highest among his fellow Canucks and therefore the most reasonable to end the drought even though he's never won a PGA TOUR event. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation today en route to nine birdies against two bogeys. Four of his par breakers dropped in from outside 10 feet, including conversions from 30'1" at 14 and 21'9" at 1. He also poured in a par save from 10'9" at the par-3 13th and a bogey putt from 20'9" at the par-4 18th where he found water off the tee. At last check, DeLaet's strokes gained-putting for the round measured 5.494. He's the fourth to card a course-record 63 and the second today (after Jim Furyk)

Graham DeLaet turns his attention to Royal Liverpool this week at the 143rd Open Championship.

The Canadian earned a weekend tee time in his Open Championship debut last year at Muirfield Golf Links, but parlayed that into a 19-over-par 83rd place finish. Now that he's played all four majors once, gamers should start to expect some marked improvements over his 1-for-4 major championship record. With five podium finishes over the past two years, DeLaet continues to knock on the winner's door, but has yet to find the key.

Jul 15 - 12:31 PM

Graham DeLaet closed out the week with a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round, good for a 3-under 277.

The table was setup for disappointment from the get-go, as gamers' expectations for the Canadian were through the roof. DeLaet didn't have his best stuff this week, converting just 11 of 51 GIR into birdies, and failed to record an eagle all week. The tag of best golfer on the PGA TOUR without a win still looms over his head. DeLaet is not listed in the preliminary field for next week's Quicken Loans National.

Graham DeLaet finished third in last year's Travelers Championship and returns to take on TPC River Highlands in this week's edition.

It sounds like a broken record at this point, but DeLaet remains one of the most talented golfers on the PGA TOUR without a win. Luckily for the Canuck, the Travelers Championship has been a mecca for first-time winners, six of the last eight winners to be precise. DeLaet ranks 131st in strokes gained-putting, making his putter the x-factor for him this week.

Graham DeLaet has been removed from the published field of this week's Memorial.

He tied for 21st in last year's edition, so this is a bit of a surprise. DeLaet posted a respective T7 and T14 during the swing through Texas, so his current form is also good. It's reasonable to expect that more news will surface on this decision, so stay tuned.

Graham DeLaet carded a 1-under-par 32-37=69 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

He picked up his sixth top 10 of the season at the Byron Nelson. With seven top 10s in 2013, he's the only non-winner with as many as five in either of the last two seasons, much less both. Suffice it to say that he's not only the best golfer on the PGA TOUR without a victory, but he's due for one. Playing out of the first threesome going off No. 1 today, DeLaet worked his way to bogey-free 4-under through 13 holes thanks in part to birdie conversions from 14'10" and 25'9" at the 3 and 5, respectively. However, he bogeyed 14, 16 and 17 to lose his spot atop the leaderboard. His bogey-4 at 16 was as a result of a three-putt from just outside 60 feet. At the time he signed his card, the Canuck sat one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
