Andrew Putnam and Michael Kim kept their foot on the pedal in round two of the Zurich Classic, erasing one big blemish to sign for a 3-under-par 36-33=69 while playing Foursomes (alternate shot), giving them the early 36-hole lead on 13-under 131.
This team picked up an easy birdie at the par-5 second to start their scoring and saved par from 11'8" at the par-4 fourth hole. Sometimes a putt like that can provide a huge boost but in this case they carded their only blemish on the very next hole, swallowing a double bogey after finding trouble off the tee. They didn't hang their heads for long as Andrew Putnam drained a 33'8" birdie at the following hole (par-4 sixth). A trio of back-nine birdies provided a clean finish, all converted from inside nine feet. Putnam and Kim have a combined 21 top 10s in 134 Tour starts (15.7%) but have only managed three top 10s in 115 PGA TOUR events (2.6%). They certainly have the pedigree to win on the big stage, so perhaps this is the perfect format for them to take it the distance. Apr 27 - 2:11 PM

Two-time Tour grad and World No. 332 Andrew Putnam fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open for a 72-hole total of 10-under 278, up three spots to T8.

After opening in 73-68-68, the 29-year-old began T11 on 7-under, one short of the overnight top 10. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 2.141 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.171 tee-to-green. The Pepperdine alum squared two bogey-5s at holes 1 and 15, outpaced by five birdies at 2, 6, 13, 14 and 18, all from inside of nine feet. He posted 1.583 putts per GIR and -0.002 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. For the week, the Washington State native and resident totaled one eagle and 17 birdies against seven bogeys and one double. This was his second VTO (T72/2015) and improves to 8-for-14 on the season with three top 25s and two top 10s, second in his last three starts (career-best T5, Corales).
Apr 22 - 5:30 PM

Andrew Putnam picked up four birdies and a bogey en route to a 3-under-par 33-36=69 during the final round of the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship, good for his first career top 10 on the PGA TOUR with an aggregate of 11-under 277.

The Pepperdine product used steady striking to make his way around Corales Golf Club, all week. After 72 holes he ranks inside the top 20 in fairways hit (46-of-56) as well as greens in regulation (49, 68%). That kept things relatively stress-free on the greens and resulted in 19 birdies and eight bogeys for the week. Playing in his 37th PGA TOUR event, this is the first time he's found the top 10 (T12, 2014 RSM Classic). Next up for Putnam is the Houston Open, the site of one of his (now four) top 25s on the PGA TOUR. He compiled a T25 at the Golf Club of Houston during the 2015 edition.

Andrew Putnam finds himself inside the top 10 after round one of the Valspar Championship, carding a 1-under-par 34-36=70 during day one of his tournament debut.

Putnam split eight (of 13) fairways today while landing 11 greens in regulation. That was good for +0.707 strokes gained off-the-tee and +0.840 strokes gained on approach. However, most of the scoring was accomplished with the flat stick, sinking four putts from outside seven feet. On the flip side, two of his three bogeys came after finding a bunker. If Putnam can avoid the beach or improve his sand play then he might be in line for his second top 25 of the season, with the first coming at this year's CareerBuilder.
Mar 8 - 6:36 PM

Andrew Putnam missed the cut during his 2015 CareerBuilder Challenge debut but he'll return to the California desert this week for a chance at redemption.

Putnam's debut was spoiled early with a 5-over 77 during R1 while taking on the Nicklaus Private Course. No longer in the rotation, Putnam won't have to worry about that in his return to the Palm Springs area. The Pepperdine product should feel as ease on the West Coast this week. He could certainly use a good week as he currently sits in 31st position on the Tour graduate reshuffle. With a 13-for-31 career record on the big stage, Putnam is a risk for gamers, but this is a week where we could certainly see him pop.
Jan 17 - 5:13 PM

World No. 270 Andrew Putnam crafted a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Safeway Open to reach the three-quarter pole on 10-under 206, up one spot to T7 with play still in progress.

The two-time Tour grad found eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.044 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.430 around-the-green. He squared two bogeys on holes 2 and 16 (3-putt from 4'2"), overshadowed by eagle-3 at 5 from 7'9" and three circle at 8 (from 11'10"), 9 and 18. The Pepperdine alum recorded a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and -0.540 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

Andrew Putnam breezed through the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa, smoothing a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the Safeway Open, climbing more than 40 spots on the live leaderboard to share the early clubhouse lead alongside six others.

Playing his second full season on the PGA TOUR, Putnam is taking full advantage of an early fall opportunity. Today, gained 1.134 strokes approaching the green (14 GIR) to set up plenty of scoring chances. He certainly capitalized, splashing home notable birdies putts from 25'9" and 12'5" at the 2nd and 18th, respectively. His flat stick also chipped in with a pair of par-savers in the 130-to-17 foot range, gaining 3.207 strokes putting at the time he walked off the course. The Pepperdine product fell one shy of his career best on the PGA TOUR, but he's certainly set up nicely for a weekend run.

Andrew Putnam posted nine points for his opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

In desperate need of a big move in the FedExCup standings where he's currently 175th, Putnam filled the cup on cue today. He buried six birdies before walking off with a double bogey at the par-5 18th hole, the worst score allowed under the Modified Stableford scoring system. But focusing only on the positive, four of his par breakers found the target from outside 14 feet, including respective conversions from 30'9" and 31'2" at the 16th and 17th holes. He also poured in par saves ranging 10-12 feet at Nos. 1 and 15. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the round measured 3.268, sixth-best in the field of 132. He's six points off the clubhouse lead.

Andrew Putnam sets his eyes on Montrêux Golf and Country Club for his debut at this week's Barracuda Championship.

The PGA TOUR rookie arrived in need of a high finish, currently ranked just 175th in the FedExCup standings. He is 9-for-21 on the season with a pair of top 25s but no top 60s over his last eight starts. The lack of field depth this week could open the doors and allow Putnam to get back in contention.

Andrew Putnam blew up for a 5-over-par 41-35=76 in today's opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The good news is that he's back inside the ropes since a migraine forced him to scratch just before his opening round of the Travelers Championship on June 24. You read the bad news above. Putnam hit a field-worst seven greens in regulation and registered a field-worst -7.795 in strokes gained: tee-to-green.

Andrew Putnam is scheduled to compete in next week's John Deere Classic.

The PGA TOUR rookie was a late scratch from last week's Travelers Championship due to a migraine. He took this week off as well and sits 167th in the FedExCup standings. Putnam will be making his first appearance at TPC Deere Run where par breakers will be for the taking. He ranks 189th in greens in regulation but 28th in birdies-or-better conversion percentage, so he'll do himself a huge solid if he can dial in his distance and accuracy next week.

Andrew Putnam has been removed from the published field of this week's Travelers Championship, citing a migraine.

This is disappointing since he's 164th in the FedExCup standings with only two months remaining in the FedExCup standings.

Andrew Putnam readies for his FedEx St. Jude Classic debut and enters the week 162nd in the FedExCup standings.

Putnam led after 36 holes at the Shell Houston Open in his only notable achievement of the season thus far. After opening in 12-under-par 67-65, he faded to a T25 on rounds of 76-72 over the weekend. Putnam began his rookie campaign well enough, cashing in four of his first five events of the wraparound season, including a T12 at the McGladrey Classic. It's gone sour since, with the 26-year-old bowing out early on eight of his next 12 starts. There was a glimmer of hope at last week's Memorial where Putnam was 6-under (T16) through 36 holes. More disaster arose over the weekend however, posting 74-82 to plummet to T68. His final-round 82 (41-41) featured four bogeys, two doubles, and a quadruple bogey-9.

Andrew Putnam looks to tackle Quail Hollow Club in his debut at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Putnam arrives in Charlotte ranked 154th in the FedExCup standings. He finished T25 at the Shell Houston Open last month but fell victim to a missed cut in his latest start, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Quail Hollow caters to long, aggressive golfers so it will be an uphill battle for Putnam this week as he currently ranks 163rd in driving distance and 171st in going for the green.

Overnight leader Andrew Putnam staggered to a 4-over-par 39-37=76 in the third round of the Shell Houston Open.

Putnam carried a one-shot lead into Saturday's round, but he now finds himself six strokes off the pace at 8-under 208. His lone par breaker came from a whopping two feet on the par-5 fourth. He then erased that immediately with bogey on No. 5 and a double on No. 6. He added his fourth dropped shot of the front nine after failing to save par on the par-3 ninth. Putnam had five birdie chances on his inward nine -- two from inside nine feet -- but failed to convert on any of them, instead adding another bogey on the par-5 15th.
