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.

Graham DeLaet falls flat in the HP Byron Nelson Championship with an even-par 34-36=70, closing out the tournament at 8-under 272.

The Canadian regressed toward his season average in strokes gained-putting, ending the day with a -0.210 mark. His most notable misses came from 52 inches for par at the par-4 fourth hole and from 6'4" at the par-4 sixth. These are the type of putts you have to make if you want to win on the PGA TOUR, and for that reason DeLaet still remains one of the best without a victory.

Graham DeLaet signed for a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

DeLaet gets a lot of flack for his poor putting but it should be noted that he has strung together three straight rounds better than the field in terms of strokes gained-putting. The Canadian sits at 8-under 202 thanks to 40 greens in regulation and just two bogeys. DeLaet is still seeking his first PGA TOUR win, and has to be pleased with his 54-hole position, just two back.
May 17 - 7:41 PM

Graham DeLaet crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship to post 6-under 134 and assume early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

DeLaet has cooled in recent weeks, but we know he's capable. He missed only one green in regulation today and converted four birdies, the most notable measuring 16'8" and 12'5" at Nos. 8 and 15, respectively. He's 10-for-11 in scrambling for the week. The Canuck is arguably the best active golfer without a PGA TOUR victory, so it's only a matter of when, not if.

Graham DeLaet makes his way back to TPC Sawgrass this week for THE PLAYERS.

The Canadian is 2-for-2 at TPC Sawgrass with last year's T26 finish being his best. DeLaet is deadly accurate with his approach shots, proven by his number one ranking in GIR, which should come in very handy on a target-golf course like TPC Sawgrass.

Graham DeLaet blew up for an 8-over-par 42-38=80 in his opening round of the 78th Masters

Beware the learning curve at Augusta National Golf Club. The Canadian is making his debut at the tournament. Alas, he hit 13 greens in regulation but failed to record a par breaker, instead squaring eight bogeys, six of which on his outward nine. He amassed 39 putts.
Apr 10 - 5:51 PM

Graham DeLaet set to make his Masters debut this week at Augusta National.

The Canadian has five top 10s in 10 events on the season, with only one missed cut. He is a premier ball-striker, has a lot of length off the tee, and doesn't rely on his putter. In theory that sets up perfectly for Augusta National.
Apr 9 - 10:53 AM

Graham DeLaet fashioned a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his final round of the Valspar Championships to post 2-under 282, good for early possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

He's not even inside the top 10 on the leaderboard, but no one else either already done or coming in soon is within two strokes. DeLaet split eight (of 13) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation at Copperhead today. He rallied for five birdies, the longest measuring just 10'8" at the par-4 third hole. This signals an acceptable return to form following a T70 at the Northern Trust Open and a T34 at Doral last week. He was a first-round knockout at the Match Play in between.

Graham DeLaet is set for his first start in the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The Canadian's form is slipping of late, tying for 70th at Riviera Country Club in the Northern Trust Open before bowing out in the first round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Because he is such an elite ball-striker, he can compete anywhere. The biggest yellow flag may be that he was invisible in the last WGC, as he is still learning to deal with elite fields.
Mar 3 - 10:00 PM

Graham DeLaet lit up TPC Scottsdale for a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and is new leader at 15-under 269.

Everyone in golf has been expecting the Canuck to hoist his first PGA TOUR trophy sooner rather than later, and this could be the day. His round featured seven birdies to just one costly bogey on the par-5 15th after a drive in the water. He finished strong, holing a 14'5" birdie on the par-4 17th and a 5'2" birdie on the par-4 18th. He landed 16 GIR in each of his final two rounds, and leads the field with 60 for the tournament. At the time of his posting, he trailed Bubba Watson by a stroke in real time.
Feb 2 - 5:16 PM

Graham DeLaet rebounded in his third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a 6-under-par 33-32=65 to post 9-under 204, good for early possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

After opening with respective rounds of 67 and 72, DeLaet started on the back side of TPC Scottsdale today and collected three birdies before making the turn. He then converted birdies from 30'8" and 14'1" at the first and second holes, respectively, before drilling home an eagle putt from 50'8" at the par-5 third. He hit his first 14 greens in regulation (en route to a total of 16), but walked off having bogeyed the par-4 ninth for his only blemish of the round. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting clip sat just shy of 1.700. He's in prime position to make yet another run at his first PGA TOUR victory on Sunday.
