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. Jul 19 - 5:10 PM

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, Frys.com 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.
Jul 4 - 8:24 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 7:00 PM

Scott Langley blistered The Old White TPC for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-32=62 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Langley is 144th in the FedExCup standings, but he's coming off a T25 at the Travelers, just his third top 25 of the season, so he arrived in West Virginia with some momentum. He piped 12 (of 14) fairways and missed only one green in regulation, converting on eight looks for birdie. Three of them traveled longer than 10 feet, the highlight dropping in from 19'1" at the par-4 second hole. At last check, he led the field in birdies and strokes gained: tee-to-green (4.302). His aggregate matches his career low first recorded in the opening round of the 2013 Sony Open in Hawaii, which was his debut round as a PGA TOUR rookie.
Jul 2 - 2:13 PM

Scott Langley carded a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the Travelers Championship to reach the halfway point in 7-under 133, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The lefty opened with a birdie conversion from 16'11" at the par-4 first hole. He collected two more birdies to cover a lone bogey (at the drivable, par-4 15th where he rinsed his tee ball) to complete the tidy round. Langley has hit 15 greens in both rounds, so he's taking care of business in terms of setting up scoring opportunities. However, if he's going to secure his first PGA TOUR title, he'll need to roll in more putts.

Scott Langley set the new clubhouse lead at the Travelers Championship with a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in today's opening round.

Langley walked off with a 10-foot birdie conversion at the par-4 ninth hole to take the lead one lower than Nicholas Thompson's early pace. The lefty went 5-for-15 in scoring chances with five birdies, two of which from just outside 13 feet. But his highlight was a zero-putt birdie from five yards at the par-4 second hole in what was a bounce-back from his only bogey of the day. He entered the week 13-for-20 on the season but 153rd in the FedExCup standings.

Scott Langley made his presence known at the 2014 Travelers Championship and returns this week for another look at TPC River Highlands.

The lefty out of Illinois stood alone at the top through 36 holes last year before fading to a T11 over the weekend. Langley calls The Dye Preserve home, so it's no surprise he was a quick study on TPC River Highlands, another Dye design. Langley has just two top 25s in 20 starts this season, but this event has played host to many first-time winners as of late. Gamers should consider him a lively long shot this week in Cromwell, Connecticut.

Scott Langley authored a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing four shots in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders.

This is Langley's first red number in 11 rounds. He arrived in Fort Worth without a top 50 in nine consecutive starts, so perhaps this is the beginning of something special. The lefty split only five (of 14) fairways, but he landed 15 greens in regulation and traded four birdies with two bogeys. Two of his birdies ranged 11-14 feet.

Scott Langley turns his attention to Quail Hollow Club for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The low-hitting lefty makes his third straight trip to Quail Hollow. After missing the cut in his debut, he improved with a T38 last year after posting red numbers in each of the first three rounds. Langley arrives this week in a bit of a slump as he's finished outside the top 50 in eight straight events.

Scott Langley fashioned a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's opening round of the RBC Heritage, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Langley came out a-blazin' with birdies on four of his first six holes. He capped that stretch with a conversion from 12-and-a-half feet at the par-4 sixth. The lefty traded two birdies with three bogeys the rest of the way, but a par after finding water at the par-3 14th was a round-saver. He cashed in nine of his first 13 starts this season, but arrived sitting 142nd in the FedExCup standings with only two top 25s, neither of which went for a top 15.
Apr 16 - 4:28 PM

Scott Langley sets his eyes on TPC San Antonio for the fourth straight year at this week's Valero Texas Open.

The lefty finished T50 in his 2012 Valero debut and has yet to eclipse that mark in two starts since. The problem may stem from his lack of length off the tee as TPC San Antonio stretches out past 7,400 yards but Langley ranks just 170th in driving distance. With five straight cuts made ahead of this week, gamers can at least consider Langley as a cut-making option in deeper formats.

Scott Langley turns his attention to PGA National's Champion Course this week for his fourth start at the Honda Classic.

PGA National is known for its difficulty but Langley has just one round in red numbers after eight attempts. He arrives at PGA National ranked 116th in the FedExCup rankings. The University of Illinois product remains high on gamers list of potential breakthrough candidates but this may not be the week that happens.

Scott Langley returns to the Waste Management Phoenix Open for his second start at TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course.

The lefty finished T69 in his debut last year, but closed out the week with a sour 4-over 75. Fellow southpaws Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, and Mike Weir have collected a combined 16 top 10s at this event, so the layout may suit Langley well. He arrives this week ranked 116th in the FedExCup standings after three cuts made in his opening five events of the new season.

Scott Langley led off the 2014-15 campaign with a top 25 at the Frys.com Open and now sits at 113th in the FedExCup standings.

The University of Illinois product made big strides in 2013-14, landing in 77th position of the FEC race when all was said and done. The lefty was looking like a lock to take down his maiden victory, but had to settle for six top 25s instead. With 11 top 25s in 65 events, Langley is on the short list of golfers ready to breakout in 2014-15.
