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.

Graham DeLaet is a last-minute withdraw from this week's Memorial, Carlos Oritz will take his place in the field at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

The Canadian is no stranger to injuries, posting four mid-tournament WDs in his career, and playing through nagging injuries for much of his career. There is no specific injury cited at this time, but we will update if and/or when that information becomes available. In the mean time, remove DeLaet from any fantasy rosters. In his place, Carlos Ortiz will take his third crack at Muirfield Village (T65/2014; MC/2015). UPDATE: GDL alerted his followers on Twitter why he withdrew this week saying, "I'm dealing with incredible anxiety while chipping/pitching right now. It's not fun. I needed to WD to get it sorted out and get back ASAP."

Graham DeLaet turns his attention toward TPC Four Seasons ahead of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson.

The Canadian continues to flash his upside from round-to-round, but remains winless in 142 career PGA TOUR starts. A few of those close calls have come here in Irving, Texas, where he sports a 4-for-5 record with two top 10s. On the season he is 11-for-15, currently ranking 85th in the FedExCup standings. DeLaet still owns a career top-10 rate over 15 percent, which makes him a good option in fantasy formats that greatly reward a top-heavy finishes.

Graham DeLaet coasted to a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the second round of the RBC Heritage, climbing to 3-under 139 through 36 holes.

The Canadian split just eight (of 14) fairways and looked sloppy at times tee-to-green, but bailed himself out with the putter multiple times. The first big putt came from 35'4" for birdie at the par-4 sixth, but that was not the most notable. Later in the round, DeLaet rinsed his approach shot on the par-5 15th and left himself 27'10" after shot five. He drained it from long distance to save bogey and keep the momentum rolling into the weekend. DeLaet has never finished better than T44 here at the Heritage in four tries, but he also doesn't usually rank top 15 in the strokes gained putting. He currently ranks 11th in the field at 4.293 strokes gained through 36 holes.

Graham DeLaet styled an opening round, 5-under-par 32-35=67 while taking on Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course at the Shell Houston Open.

The Canadian fired out of the gates with birdies in four of his first five holes. In an uncharacteristic display of putting prowess, DeLaet splashed in 92'3" worth of putts during the four-hole birdie train which began at the par-4 second hole. Two of the four putts came from outside of 32 feet (but inside 33 feet). The knock on DeLaet is always his putting, so this is a pleasant surprise for all his backers. Gamers should not expect a repeat of this putting as the week goes on, but he's already knocked in his fair share and his ball-striking should keep him in contention as the week progresses.

Graham DeLaet cratered to a 4-over-par 39-36=75 in today's final round of the Valspar Championship to post 3-under 281, four strokes back of a playoff involving Bill Haas and would-be-champ Charl Schwartzel.

Athletes tend to watch tape to see where they can improve. It's doubtful that DeLaet will be so inclined. He began Sunday in solo second, one shy of 54-hole leader and playing partner Haas, and ended in a two-way T5 after a birdie-less four-bogey 75. The 34-year-old, chasing his first TOUR title in his 137th career start, ended the week T5 in driving accuracy at 67.31 percent, including nine (of 13) in R4, No. 1 in greens in regulation at 69.44 percent (12 in R4), and No. 1 in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a cumulative 15.089. However, he was 70th (last) in strokes gained: putting, including a horrific -5.222 in the finale. DeLaet's consolation is a personal best at the Valspar (fourth start), and season best and second top 10 on 10 events in 2015-16.

Graham DeLaet orchestrated a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the Valspar Championship to reach the three-quarter pole on 7-under 206, one back of 54-hole leader Bill Haas.

DeLaet is winless on TOUR in his 137th career start, but does own three runners-up, most recently in back-to-back weeks in 2014 at the Farmers and WM Phoenix Open. He's not been in contention yet this season with only one top 30 (T7, Sony) in nine prior starts. After opening his fourth Valspar in 72 and 66 (matching low round of the tourney), he began R3 in a three-way T3, one back of the 36-hole co-leaders. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, the 34-year-old split nine (of 13) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, managing a pedestrian 1.846 putts per GIR and a dismal -2.247 in strokes gained: putting, including two missed par putts from 60 inches or less. He salvaged the round with a chip-in birdie-3 at the seventh (from 59'7"), and an improbable eagle at the par-5 14th, hitting his choked-down 3-wood to 39 inches from 268 yards out -- from the rough. DeLaet leads the field in SGTTG with a cumulative 12.710.
