Scott Langley spun a career-tying-low 8-under-par 29-33=62 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to post 11-under 199, up 55 spots to T2 and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Langley is T10, seven in arrears to 54-hole leader Si Woo Kim.
The 27-year-old was one of 20 that made the cut on the number after opening his fourth Wyndham in 67-70=137. He landed eight (of 14) fairways and just 12 greens in regulation, but posted a stellar 1.333 putts per GIR and 3.837 in SG: Putting. The University of Illinois alum, who entered the week No. 175 in the FedExCup standings, circled four birdies and an eagle en route to a first-half 29, highlighted by a run of birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie on holes 4-7. He made a 6'6" come-backer for par on 10 before squaring a lone bogey at the par-4 11th (failed scramble), and added further birdies at 13, 15 and 18. Langley's split featured five conversions from inside of 10 feet and three from between 15 and 18 feet. He's shot 62 two other times (343 career rounds), most recently at the 2015 Greenbrier/R1.

Scott Langley looks to improve his PGA TOUR status as he preps for this week's Wyndham Championship.

The lefty enters the week ranked 175th in the FedExCup standings and 178th on the money list. It would take a remarkable week to vault inside the top 125 and secure a playoff position, but jumping up 25 spots would also be helpful in terms of conditional status. Luckily, Langley does have some fond memories to draw on at Sedgefield Country Club, as he finished T12 in the 2014 edition. Langley currently ranks 36th in driving accuracy and 31st in strokes gained around-the-green, two stats that could certainly help him this week on a classical Donald Ross layout.
Aug 16 - 4:51 PM

Sponsor invite Scott Langley rallied for a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in today's third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 210, down one to solo sixth.

Playing this season on conditional status, this is Langley's fourth WFC with a previous best -- and only cash -- a T38 in 2014. He began the third frame on 5-under (T5) after opening in 70-69. The 27-year-old found eight (of 14) fairways and mustered 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.667 putts per GIR. He turned in 2-over after a two-birdie four-bogey first half, but outpaced bogey at 11 with birdies at 10, 14, 15 and 17. All six of Langley's par breakers traveled less than nine feet with two of his four blemishes coming on failed scrambles and the other two 3-putts from 77'3" and 45'2", respectively.
May 7 - 6:25 PM

Scott Langley ascended up the leaderboard with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship, good for T5 at 5-under 139.

The lefty out of Illinois split nine (of 14) fairways in route to 13 greens in regulation. Quail Hollow Club is a demanding golf course and Langley handled it brilliantly, never putting himself far out of position. In addition to solid ball-striking, his putter kicked in from time-to-time. Most notable was a 26'3" birdie bomb on the par-4 12th hole. Through two rounds, Langley ranks 12th in strokes gained putting and 21st tee-to-green. It's been a balanced approach for the lefty, and he'll enter the weekend just three strokes off the leader, Andrew Loupe.
May 6 - 7:36 PM

Scott Langley styled a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during the second round of the Valero Texas Open to take sole possession of second place for the time being at 7-under 137.

The lefty was spotted using some fresh PXG irons this week and he's put them to great use thus far. Langley landed 13 greens in regulation today, reaching 27 on the week (currently T11 in the field). In addition to the great ball-striking, he splashed in 16'1" and 18'1" birdie rolls on back-to-back holes beginning at the par-3 third. The highlight of the round came on the back nine, though, holing out from just off the green (32 feet) for eagle on the par-5 14th hole. Langley sits just three strokes shy of Brendan Steele's current 10-under pace.
Apr 22 - 4:47 PM

The start of the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was delayed 30 minutes due to fog and began at 8:30 a.m. PT.

The marine layer made its first appearance on Saturday morning in what has otherwise been two glorious opening days. Scott Langley is now underway in the first pairing with Aussie Cameron Smith off No. 1 tee on the difficult Spyglass Hill GC. He's currently T59 on 1-under total after opening in 2-under 69 (MPCC), and 1-over 73 (PB), and will be battling to make the scheduled 54-hole cut of top 60 and ties. The 26-year-old has posted two straight MDFs in each of the last two editions: T65/MDF (2015) and T64/MDF (2014). On a side note, Langley finished T16 (tied low amateur) at the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
Feb 13 - 11:39 AM

Scott Langley opened 2015-16 on conditional status and has gotten four starts with a T33 at The RSM Classic his best of three cashes.

Last season was Langley's third consecutive on the PGA TOUR and he went 19-for-28 with no top 10s. His season best was T13 at The Greenbrier Classic where he lead/co-lead after each of the first two rounds. The 26-year-old was inside the projected top 125 in FedExCup standings at the Regular Season-ending Wyndham Championship before four bogeys over his last six holes knocked him out of the Playoffs, finishing 127th in the FEC standings. He attempted to regain full-exempt status via the Tour Finals, but his debut in the series fell short posting T10-T53-T65-MC.

Scott Langley got after it early in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, posting a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68 to establish the first clubhouse lead inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.

Langley is trying to make the most of conditional status in 2015-16, but he managed only a T55 at the Open where he gained entry on a sponsor exemption. Today at the Country Club of Jackson, the lefty went 6-for-6 in scrambling with four birdies. His most impressive was his first when he holed out from a bunker 24 yards away at the par-3 10th hole, his first of the round.

Scott Langley fashioned a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's opening round of the Open, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The lefty has conditional status this season after failing to climb the ladder at the Tour Finals, so he needed a sponsor exemption to peg it at Silverado this week. He placed T17 in the redesign's debut last year. Flashing a confident tee-to-green game that featured 12 (of 14) fairways hit and 14 greens in regulation, Langley covered a lone bogey with six birdies. While he connected from 16-and-a-half feet at the par-4 12th for his first par breaker of the round, it was his last from 63'11" at the par-3 seventh that jumps off the card.

Scott Langley looks to regain his PGA TOUR card at this week's Tour Championship which is contested on the Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass

In the third year of the Tour Finals format, Langley debuted in the series with T10 at the Hotel Fitness Championship. He chased with T53 in the second Finals event at the Small Business Connection Championship on rounds of 68-74-72-73. After opening last week's Nationwide Children's Championship in 71-72, Langley finished T65 (of 68 players) at 11-over 295, closing in 75-77. With 25 PGA TOUR cards up for grabs in the four Finals events, his three-tournament take is $28,230, good for 27th on the Finals money list. The 26-year-old completed his third season on the main tour No. 127 in the final FedExCup standings thereby securing only conditional status for the 2015-16 TOUR season. He entered the regular-season-ending Wyndham Championship on the top-125 bubble at No. 126 in FEC points but could only muster a T59 finish.

Scott Langley makes his third visit to Sedgefield Country Club for this week's Wyndham Championship and enters the festivities ranked 126th in the FedExCup standings.

Langley co-lead after 36 holes at last year's Wyndham (par 70) opening in 65-65, but played the weekend in 69-69 to fade to a T12, five shots back of eventual champ Camilo Villegas. He missed the cut by four in 2013 on rounds of 67-76 in his only other appearance in Greensboro. The 26-year-old is a respectable 18-for-27 on the season, with six top 25s, but none for top 10s, hence his precarious FEC position. Langley ranks outside the top 100 on TOUR in most statistical categories, including 110th in bogey avoidance and 115th in par-4 scoring.

Scott Langley smoothed a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Barbasol Championship to post 11-under 273, good for a share of the early 72-hole clubhouse lead with Tom Hoge.

Langley began his final frame at 5-under (T39) and eight shots off the pace. On his day, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation, totaling 28 putts. The 26-year-old circled seven birdies on the card to smother one bogey. Six came the conventional way with four rolls from inside of six feet. His longest conversion came from 21'2" at the par-4 fourth. Langley added a chip-in birdie at the par-4 seventh, 49 feet from the target in the right rough. With play still in progress, he sits T12 on the leaderboard, up 27 spots on the day. His season-best on 23 starts is a T13 at the Greenbrier Classic.

Scott Langley responded with a 5-under-par 30-35=65 to conclude his third appearance at The Greenbrier Classic at 10-under 200, currently two strokes back of the leader in the clubhouse Russell Henley.

With the overnight leaders going off the first tee, Langley was finishing up his day. A disappointing position as he lead or co-lead after the first and second rounds. To his credit he battled back today after a 4-over 74 in the third round dropped him well down the leaderboard. The 26-year-old, who very easily could have capitulated after Saturday's result, began the day at 5-under (T40) and six shots off the pace. He was 6-under on his round thru 16 holes, joining the leaders at 11-under, before squaring his lone bogey at the par-5 17th. A costly dropped shot for a couple of reasons, but most notably for knocking him out of a chance to earn a spot into the 144th Open Championship (which will go to the low four in the top 12, not already exempt). Langley currently sits T10 on the live leaderboard and seventh in the Open Qualifying race. His consolation should be a season-best finish (T17, Open) and a personal-best at the Greenbrier (T26,2014).

Overnight co-leader Scott Langley stumbled to a 4-over-par 36-38=74 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 5-under 205, down 39 places on the leaderboard to T40.

Langley, playing in the final pairing, began the day tied for the 36-hole lead (with playing partner Jhonattan Vegas), and one stroke clear of seven players. He was 1-under thru his first four holes, circling birdie from 15' 10" (his only par breaker) at the par-4 second. Then the wheels fell off, suffering a triple bogey-7 at the par-4 fifth, inexplicably leaving his approach from the fairway (159 yards out) woefully short and into the native area. The 26-year-old would eventually take a penalty for an unplayable lie. Langley squared bogeys on his inward half at 13 and 17, the latter the result of a three-putt from a little over 44 feet. He missed birdie at the last (from 10'1") that could have lessened the carnage and was his only other scoring chance from inside 11 feet all day. Langley, who held led or co-lead after the first two rounds, landed just 10 greens in regulation on Saturday, and clocked in at a dismal -4.872 in strokes gained: total.

Overnight leader Scott Langley hung on for a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 9-under 131 at the halfway point, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Jhonattan Vegas.

The lefty went 2-for-3 in scrambling with a bogey but added a three-putt bogey from outside 54 feet at the par-3 15th hole. Elsewhere, he picked off three birdies, including runs of 30'3" at the par-5 17th and 24 feet at the par-4 sixth. He missed only two looks inside 11 feet, but those are magnified given the competition. Consider that there are 15 golfers inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and within two swings of the lead. Langley ranks T2 with 32 greens in regulation and T5 in birdies, but he knows that he'll have to keep the pedal floored if he's going to collect his first hardware on the PGA TOUR.
