Graham DeLaet returns to Fort Worth, Texas, for his fifth career Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial start.
The Canadian arrives under the radar this week after a relatively poor start to his 2014-15 season. After posting 11 top 25s in 24 starts last year, he has just 2-of-14 in that regard during 2015. On the bright side, DeLaet is 3-for-4 at Colonial Country Club with all three yielding top 35s. The upside is always there for Mr. DeLaet, making him a great contrarian play in DFS formats this week.

Graham DeLaet turned in a 2-under-par 36-33=69 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage and sits two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

He's been in a slump since the conclusion of the West Coast Swing, so this is a welcome effort. DeLaet striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation at Harbour Town today. He covered a pair of bogey-5s with four birdies, including conversions of 14'7" and 18'6" at Nos. 15 and 16, respectively. He also rolled in a bogey putt from 12'1" at the par-4 eighth. At last check, he ranked 15th in the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 1.913. That's a positive deviation from his norm. DeLaet has carved out a reputation as such a strong ball-striker that it's a backhanded compliment to cite the good he does on the greens.

Graham DeLaet collapsed to a one-over-par 35-38=73 in the final round of the Shell Houston Open. His 6-under 282 will be his worst finish at SHO since missing the cut in 2012.

His third-round 75 knocked him out of contention and the 18th hole eliminated the potential top-10 finish. After completing his first 17 holes in 4-under to reach 11-under for the tournament, DeLaet came to the 18th and promptly dunked two tee balls in the water, agonizingly ending up with a quintuple bogey-9. His best finish at the SHO will remain a T3 in 2010.
Apr 5 - 3:54 PM

Graham DeLaet enjoyed his first 67 at the Shell Houston Open so much that he signed for another following today's second round.

He carded respective nines of 32 and 35 today before walking off with sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 10-under 134. DeLaet striped nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation en route to six birdies on Friday. His longest conversions measured 11'8" and 30'2" at Nos. 7 and 13, respectively. His only gaffe occurred at the par-3 16th where he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker and settled for bogey. Half of his 12 birdies overall have disappeared on the quartet of par 5s at the Golf Club of Houston. The Canadian will enter the weekend with his latest chance to secure his first PGA TOUR victory.
Apr 3 - 5:40 PM

Graham DeLaet hung up a 5-under-par 35-32=67 for his opening round of the Shell Houston Open to set the very early clubhouse lead.

DeLaet arrived having missed three consecutive cuts, so this qualifies as a mild surprise. He went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at the Golf Club of Houston's Tournament Course today. After opening par-bogey, the Canuck peeled off six birdies against no bogeys or worse. Two of his birdies rolled in conventionally from outside 11 feet, but the highlight was a 10-yarder from off the green at the par-3 16th. Overall, he split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. Because it always feels necessary to update the tote board, DeLaet is winless in 116 PGA TOUR starts.
Apr 2 - 1:14 PM

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.
Feb 22 - 6:55 PM

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.
Feb 21 - 6:06 PM

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.
Feb 20 - 7:13 PM

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.
