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.

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.

World No. 132 Graham DeLaet carded a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's final round of the Valspar Championship for a four-day total of 3-under 281, up 28 spots on the live leaderboard to T21 and tying the low round in the clubhouse with Jason Dufner and Graeme McDowell. UPDATE: With play completed, DeLaet finished T22 while Tony Finau had the low round with 64.

This was the 35-year-old's fifth appearance, fourth straight cash and apparent fourth straight top 25. His best is T5 last year, where he was solo 2nd thru 54 holes but closed in 75. After kicking off in 71-71, the Canadian was one of 19 to make the cut on the number, adding a 72 in R3 to begin T49. He outpaced two bogeys, which unfortunately came over his final three holes, with six birdies on nine (of 13) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, recording 1.615 putts per GIR and 2.888 SG: Putting. The Boise State alum was making his ninth start of the season and is vying for a fifth top 25, possibly fourth consecutive if it holds up.
Mar 12 - 3:48 PM

World No. 167 Graham DeLaet conjured up an even-par 36-34=70 in the final round of The Honda Classic for a four-day total of 6-under 270, down two places on the live leaderboard to T10. UPDATE: With play completed, DeLaet finished in 10th-place, six shy of champion Rickie Fowler.

After opening in progressively worse laps of 66-68-70, the 35-year-old began in a 12-way logjam on 6-under (T8), seven in arrears to 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. He circled three birdies at Nos. 3, 13 and 17, but cancelled them with bogeys at 6, 7 and 16, posting a pedestrian 1.833 putts per GIR and 0.148 SG: Putting. The Canadian split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.678 strokes around-the-green, ending the week with 15 birdies against nine bogeys. This was his sixth Honda with a best and lone top-50 finish of T9/2013. It was the Boise State alum's eighth event of the season and will be a fourth top 25, possibly a third top 10 (T9, Phoenix Open; T8 Sanderson Farms).
Feb 26 - 5:26 PM

Graham DeLaet swallowed his first two bogeys of the week but still managed a 2-under-par 33-35=68 during the second round of The Honda Classic, heading into the weekend in a share of fifth place on 6-under 134.

The Canadian caught fire with the flat stick today. He opened with a 12'11" birdie splash at the par-4 first and converted four more from 13-to-17 feet before the round was over. All these putts were setup by steady ball-striking, landing 15 greens in regulation on the day. At the midpoint, the Canuck ranks T4 in GIR percentage. DeLaet is still searching for his first win on the PGA TOUR but he's in great position heading into the weekend just three strokes off the pace set by Wesley Bryan and Ryan Palmer.
Feb 24 - 6:46 PM

Graham DeLaet took care of business at PGA National's Champion Course, firing a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of The Honda Classic.

Starting on the 10th tee, DeLaet opened his day with a 16'9" splash to save par. That putt may have been crucial in terms of building momentum for the remainder of the round. From there, DeLaet stayed patient as he rattled off pars on his opening 11 holes. He uncorked the birdies when he circled an easy one at the par-5 third hole. The Canadian backed it up with a 39'4" hole out from the fringe for birdie at the par-4 fourth, and added birdies at 6 and 8 to reach 4-under by round's end. In five previous trips to PGA National, DeLaet has opened with rounds of 2-over 72 or worse in four of those years. The other was the 2013 edition when he posted a 5-under 65 which ended up as a T9 at the end of the week.
Feb 23 - 1:57 PM

World No. 212 Graham DeLaet labored to an even-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to finish off his seventh appearance on 12-under 272, down six places into a three-way T9.

The 35-year-old, runner-up in 2014, began the final frame in a four-way T3 on 12-under, four back of 54-hole leader Byeong Hun An. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he circled five birdies, including three straight on Nos. 13-15, but erased them with three bogeys and a double bogey-6. The Canadian mustered six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.240 strokes around-the-green and 0.497 on the green. For the week, he carded one eagle and 22 birdies against 10 bogeys, lowlighted by two bogeys in his final three holes, and one double. It is DeLaet's second top 10 of the season in six starts, joining a T8 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms.
Feb 5 - 5:56 PM

World No. 212 Graham DeLaet hung up a 6-under-par 32-33=65 on Moving Day at the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day total of 12-under 201, up eight on the live leaderboard to T3.

The 35-year-old, runner-up in 2014, closed that edition with weekend rounds of 65-65, so today's seven-birdie one-bogey effort matched those for personal bests at TPC Scottsdale (21 rounds). He mustered just six (of 14) fairways but hit 13 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 1.467 putts per GIR and 4.343 SG: Putting at last glance. The Canadian's lone bogey came at the par-4 10th (failed sand save) but erased it with birdies at Nos. 2, 3, 5 (from 24'11"), 11 (48'1"), 14 (41'4"), 16 (15'2") and 18.
Feb 4 - 5:21 PM

Graham DeLaet delivered a colorful scorecard in round two of the Waste Management Open, signing for a 2-under-par 37-32=69 to reach 6-under 136 at the midpoint.

The Canuck opened on the 10th tee and was swimming smoothly after three birdies and an eagle offset a lone bogey on the outward nine. The eagle was truly special as he stuck his 230-yard approach shot to just 4'9" to setup the relatively easy eagle splash. After another birdie at the par-4 second he found himself at 9-under and tied for the led at the time. From there, his irons started getting loose and he bogeyed four of the final six holes. Despite the disappointing finish, DeLaet will enter the weekend inside the top 15 with a great chance to pick up his third top 10 at this event.
Feb 3 - 4:01 PM

Graham DeLaet dished out seven birdies en route to a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in round one of the Farmers Insurance Open.

The Canuck has openly struggled with his short game over the past year, but today his flat stick worked wonders. It wasn't a flawless performance, as he missed four putts from inside 10 feet, but he offset those with three splashes from outside 11 feet. Two of those came from the 22-to-26 foot range, both for birdies. GDL walked off the South Course gaining 3.733 strokes putting on the day. DeLaet is no stranger to success at this event, recording a T9 in 2013 and returning the following year with a T2.
Jan 26 - 5:56 PM

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.
