Graham DeLaet has withdrawn from THE NORTHERN TRUST, citing a back injury, he was 5-over thru 20 holes at the time of WD. UPDATE: DeLaet returned to action Sep. 1st at the Dell Technologies Championship and carded a 1-over 72 (eagle-3, three bogeys).
The Canadian arrived one week removed from a stellar T7 at the PGA Championship. That result came on the heels of a mid-tourney WD at the Barracuda and DeLaet said he was still fighting the back flare up during the PGA Championship. Back troubles are nothing new for the 35-year-old, who has struggled with back issues for much of his career. At 67th in the FedExCup standings, he will have a spot in next week's Dell Technologies Championship (if his back is up to the task). Making his 172nd career start, this will go in the books as his sixth career mid-tournament WD (3.5% of starts). Aug 25 - 9:03 AM

World No. 117 Graham DeLaet crafted a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to wrap on 4-under 280, good for a two-way T7, four short of champion Justin Thomas.

After opening in 70-73-68, the 35-year-old began T7 on 2-under, five short of 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner. Playing out of the fourth-to-last twosome, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in GIR at 73.61 percent (53/72). The Boise State alum gained 2.000 strokes off-the-tee and 1.927 approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in SG: Approach with a cumulative 7.491. He squared three bogeys at Nos. 2 (3-putt from 53'5"), 4 and 13, silenced by four birdies at 3, 7, 9, 14 and 18, all from inside of 12 feet. The Canadian posted 1.833 putts per GIR and -0.255 SG: Putting. This was his third PGA, second straight top 25 and first top 10, and his second top 25 in eight overall majors and first top 10.

World No. 117 Graham DeLaet rallied for a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the 99th PGA Championship to reach the three-quarter mark on 2-under 211, up 13 places to T8 with play still in progress.

This is the 35-year-old's third PGA, missing the cut in 2013 and cashing a T15 in 2014 (Valhalla GC). Overall, it's his eighth major appearance with one top 25, the above-mentioned T15. After opening in 70-73, the Boise State alum began T21 on 1-over, three shy of the overnight top 10. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.393 SG: Off-the-Tee and 2.591 SG: Tee-to-Green. The Canadian was 3-over thru 12 holes, outpacing a lone birdie-2 at No. 6 with bogeys at 3 and 7 (3-putt from 38'10"), and double bogey-6 at 11 (3-putt from 22'11"), but then played holes 13-16 in 6-under. He nearly aced the par-3 13th, tapping in from one inch, eagled the drivable par-4 14th from 8'6", eagled the par-5 15th from 12'10", and wrapped his scoring with a 46'5" bomb for birdie-3 at 16. DeLaet posted 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.523 SG: Putting, taking 31 total putts.

Graham DeLaet lasted four holes during round three of the Barracuda Championship before withdrawing due to a back injury. You could call this his second WD of the week, as a clerical error originally showed him as WD on Monday before a correction was made on Tuesday evening.

The Canadian had racked up 10 points during round one and two, making the cut on the number. He returned to Montrêux Golf and Country Club this morning and swallowed three straight bogeys followed by a par. His last lasered shot was an approach shot at the par-4 fifth hole that landed in the greenside bunker. Currently in the field for next week's PGA Championship, this may have been a precautionary WD, but we will monitor his status and provide any further updates if they get passed along before next week's big event. In 170 career starts, this is his fifth mid-tournament WD, first since the 2015 RBC Canadian Open (thumb injury).

After an early-week report suggesting Graham DeLaet had withdrawn from the Barracuda Championship, further updates suggest he is playing this week in Reno, Nevada, making him one of the favorites at Montrêux Golf and Country Club.

DeLaet seemingly took a pass on this alternate-field event, but Rob Bolton reported on Twitter that it was just a clerical error. The Canadian was one of just two Canucks to make the cut last week in their national open, finishing T48 by week's end. DeLaet received an invite into the PGA Championship so it was logical that he would avoid playing in 100-degree heat this week and instead turn his attention toward the season's final major. Instead, the 35-year-old is one of the favorites to hoist the trophy at Montrêux Golf and Country Club. Making his 170th career start, he is still in search of his first win.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 110 Graham DeLaet turned in a 4-under-par 33-35=68 after the second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 8-under 136, up 28 spots to T8 with play still in progress.

This is the Canuck's ninth RBC with one prior top 25, a T7 in 2014 (69-63-70-68). He kicked off with a 68 as well, carding four birdies and one eagle-3 against two bogeys. On Day 2, the 35-year-old striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.997 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.246 approaching-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 10, offset by five birdies at 15-17, 2 and 8, four from inside of five feet and a hole-out 3 from 87'11" away at the par-4 eighth that completed his scoring. The Boise State alum also holed out for par from 20'0" at the par-4 11th, posting 1.714 putts per GIR and a pedestrian -0.742 SG: Putting, needing 27 total putts despite the two hole outs.

Graham DeLaet styled a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of The Greenbrier Classic, placing him one stroke shy of the early leader Davis Love III.

GDL missed just one fairway all day, allowing him to take full advantage of lift, clean, and place. That is exactly what he did, as he peppered 16 greens in regulation, setting up 11 scoring chances from inside 18 feet. DeLaet converted on five of those while also adding a bonus birdie at the 13th when he drained one from 23'1". This will be the sixth time the Canadian has positioned himself inside the top 10 after R1 this season. Four of those have turned into top 10s, so gamers should expect DeLaet to stick around for the long haul this week as he continues to search for his maiden TOUR victory.
Jul 6 - 1:53 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 108 Graham DeLaet enjoyed a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the first round of the Travelers Championship to finish T4, two adrift of leader Jordan Spieth.

The 35-year-old found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.373 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.946 tee-to-green. He was bogey-free 7-under thru 17 holes before walking off with bogey-5 at nine (failed scramble). The Boise State alum overshadowed that with four birdies at holes 10, 11 (from 13'5"), 1 (17'10") and 5, pitching in from 32'9" away, and eagle-3 at six from 8'2". He posted 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.101 SG: Putting, missing two scoring tries from inside of nine feet. This is the Canadian's seventh Travelers with two top 25s, both doubling as top 5s, recording solo 3rd in 2013 as 54-hole co-leader (65-70-65-69), and solo 4th in 2015, where he was T2 thru 54 holes (67-66-64-69).
Jun 22 - 7:21 PM

World No. 131 Graham DeLaet enjoyed a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament to conclude on 7-under 281, up 19 places to T8 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, DeLaet finished in a three-way T10, six in arrears of champion Jason Dufner.

This was the 35-year-old's fourth Memorial with a previous-best T21 in 2013. After opening in 73-67-73, he began T27 on 3-under, four shy of the overnight top 10. The Boise State alum found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.179 strokes approaching-the-green and 4.562 tee-to-green. He squared bogey-5 at 10 and ate double bogey-5 at 16 (tee ball in the water), offset by seven birdies at 2, 3, 6, 8, 11, 14 and 17, four from between 10 and 19 feet and a long of 21'5" at the par-4 sixth. The Canadian posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 1.994 SG: Putting. This is his eighth top 25 of the season in 17 starts and possibly a fifth top 10, currently just off the pace of a season-best T6 at the RBC Heritage.
Jun 4 - 3:27 PM

World No. 131 Graham DeLaet authored a 5-under-par 33-34=67 on Day 2 of the Memorial Tournament for a 36-hole total of 4-under 140, up 38 places on the live leaderboard to T10, 12 adrift of clubhouse leader Jason Dufner, who's opened with twin-65s.

This is the 35-year-old's fourth Memorial, missing the cut on debut in 2010 and posting two top 30s with a best of T21 in 2013. He kicked off with a three-birdie four-bogey 73 and rebounded with five against two in R2, adding eagle-3 at the seventh from 4'2". The Boise State alum landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, recording 3.837 SG: Tee-to-Green at last check. He squared bogey-5s at holes 3 (3-putt from 61'7") and 10, offset by birdies at 5, 9, 11, 15 and 16, two from between 12 and 14 feet. The Canadian posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.022 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. His 67 is his best lap at Muirfield Village GC in 12 tries, previously 69 (x2).
Jun 2 - 1:51 PM

Second-round co-leader and World No. 128 Graham DeLaet labored to a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in today's final round of the RBC Heritage dropping four spots into a three-way T6 on 10-under 274, three adrift of TOUR rookie and first-time winner Wesley Bryan, who shot 67.

The Canadian was vying for his first TOUR title in 160 career starts but settles for a 30th career top 10. This was his sixth Heritage and first top 10 with a previous-best T14 last year. After kicking off in 65-67, the 35-year-old co-led at the midpoint, his first career lead after 36 holes. He carded a 69 in R3 to begin in solo 2nd, one shy of leader Jason Dufner, three ahead of Bryan. The Boise State alum found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.162 strokes tee-to-green and 0.649 on the greens. He birdied Nos. 2, 5, 7 and 9, each from between nine and 18 feet, but outbalanced them with bogey-5 at 3 (whiffed par-saver from 35 inches), bogey-5 at 6 and triple bogey-7 at eight (tee ball in the water). At the break, he was still just one behind the leaders, but came home in 1-over, silencing birdie-3 at 12 with bogeys at 10 and 14. DeLaet was No. 1 for the week in GIR (83.33 percent) but 71st (of 74) in SG: Around-the-Green (-3.089).
Apr 16 - 7:54 PM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 128 Graham DeLaet pieced together a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the RBC Heritage to post 12-under 201, down one place to solo 2nd, one shy of 54-hole leader Jason Dufner, who shot the day's low round with 65.

After opening in 65-67, the Canadian co-led with Luke Donald, his first 36-hole lead/co-lead in 159 career starts. He'll play out of the final twosome again on Easter Sunday, still looking for his first TOUR title. The 35-year-old piped 11 (of 14) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation, gaining 0.754 strokes tee-to-green, pacing the field in the latter with a cumulative 7.147. He bookended bogey-5s at holes 1 and 18, the former a 3-putt from 47'8", in between circling three birdie-4s and birdie-3 at the ninth, all from inside of nine feet.
Apr 15 - 5:50 PM

World No. 128 Graham DeLaet twirled a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during round two of the RBC Heritage, reaching 10-under 132 on the week to claim the early title of clubhouse leader.

The Canadian had a very balanced attack on day one but today was largely about ball-striking. DeLaet splashed home a pair of putts from just outside 15 feet at the 8th and 11th, but he also missed four putts from inside 10 feet, so his putting was not as sharp as R1. However, he made up the difference at the par-4 ninth when he holed out a 109-yard approach shot for an unconventional eagle. He walked off the course gaining 3.328 strokes approaching-the-green, finding 15 greens in regulation after hitting 16 on day one. That will be the key to his success this week, because his play around the greens can get sloppy at times. It's still very early in the day but if this lead holds then it will surprisingly be his first 36-hole lead on the PGA TOUR. He is still searching for that coveted maiden victory.
Apr 14 - 11:42 AM

Graham DeLaet orchestrated a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-31=65 during round one of the RBC Heritage, staking out a spot just two strokes shy of early leader Bud Cauley.

The Canadian entered the week ranked 72nd in the FedExCup race on the heels of some stellar early-season putting, currently ranked 15th on TOUR in strokes gained putting. He continued to roll his rock today, splashing home six putts from outside seven feet including a pair in the 19-to-25 foot range. The Canuck walked off the course gaining 2.781 strokes putting. All that flat-stick work was set up by a steady aerial attack, pelting 16 greens on a day where the field averaged less than 12. Playing his 17th round at Harbour Town Golf Links, this goes in the books as a new personal best for DeLaet, previously signing for nothing better than 3-under 68. The wildcard will remain in his scrambling but with GIR numbers like today, that weakness is minimized.
Apr 13 - 4:53 PM

World No. 135 Graham DeLaet makes final preparations for his fifth Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach and arrives at 59th in the FedExCup standings.

The 35-year-old is 4-for-4 in the opposite-field event with four top 25s and one top 10 (T9/2012). He posted T11 last year (70-69-70-71) and overall, has put 15 (of 16) rounds in the red. The Canadian's scoring average on the par 72 is a steady 69.44, though he's yet to really contend. This is his 159th career event on TOUR and is still looking for an elusive first title. He's had three runners-up, most recently in 2014 with back-to-back T2s at the Farmers and WM Phoenix Open. The Boise State alum, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, is 7-for-10 this season with five top 25s, three for top 10s, with a season-best T8 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms in late-October where he was T3 thru 54 holes, closing with even-par 72.
