Andrew Putnam has been added to the published field of this week's Honda Classic.
The rookie was one of five bumped from the field after the second reshuffle of the season occurred following the Northern Trust Open. Falling to third alternate, he didn't get back into the field of 144 until Dudley Hart withdrew today. As expected, Putnam will be making his debut at PGA National. He's 5-for-10 in 2014-15 with one top-30 finish (T12, McGladrey). Feb 25 - 4:47 PM

Andrew Putnam turns his focus on Torrey Pines for his debut at this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

The Pepperdine alum has opened his rookie season with a 4-for-7 record, entering the week 102nd on the FedExCup leaderboard. He ranks 173rd in total driving and 155th in GIRs. Both statistics are not a good sign of things to come this week at Torrey Pines. Gamers can safely avoid the younger Putnam brother this week.
Feb 3 - 11:51 PM

Andrew Putnam kicked off his rookie season with four cuts made over the fall, arriving at the holiday break ranked 68th on the FedExCup leaderboard.

Putnam missed just one cut during the Fall Series, which came at the opening Open event. The Pepperdine alum earned his TOUR card by finishing second on last season's Tour money list. His older brother, Michael, has established a name for himself as a consistent cut-maker, and Andrew is following right in his footsteps.

Andrew Putnam twirled a 3-under-par 31-37=68 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, finishing three strokes off the pace of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

Putnam converted a field-high eight birdies, but also penciled in an 8 at the par-4 12th hole. He was 4-under at the time, so that dropped him back to even. Undeterred, he clawed back with three birdies and three pars thereafter. So, it's already just a bump in the road in what has been a solid start to his rookie season. He arrived at El Camaleón ranked T53 in the FedExCup standings on the strength of three paydays, including a T12 at The McGladrey Classic.

Andrew Putnam fashioned a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic to post 9-under 201, good for a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

After opening the tournament with a 68, the rookie has chipped off one stroke in each subsequent round, so the pattern is in his favor. He hit 14 greens in regulation today and circled five par breakers. The highlight came courtesy of a 19-yard hole-out for eagle at the par-5 seventh hole. Three of his four birdies stretched outside 12 feet, the longest measuring 22'8" at the par-4 10th. Putnam's only miscue occurred at the par-4 fifth where he found the hazard with his drive and had to re-tee.

Andrew Putnam turned in a 3-under-par 32-35=67 for his second round of The McGladrey Classic to reach the halfway point in 5-under 135, four strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Putnam shared the 36-hole lead of last week's Shriners before drifting to place T33, so he already attempting to avenge the fade. Thus far at Seaside, he's missed only five (of 28) fairways and six greens in regulation. The precision has opened the door for four birdies in each round, including a 51'1" beaut at the par-4 13th hole today. He also rolled in tries from 20'4" and 13'5" at Nos. 1 and 4, respectively, both for birdie.

Andrew Putnam responded to the 36-hole lead at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 2-over-par 34-39=73 and is now tied for 24th at 8-under 205.

It was always going to be hard for Putnam to eventually convert a lead into a win this early in his career. Perhaps he takes this as a learning experience, and nothing worse than that. His four birdies, two from between 13 and 14 feet, allowed for several highlights at TPC Summerlin but the six bogeys were just too much to overcome. Perhaps the most deflating bogey came at the par-5 16th. After finding the green in two, he penalized himself a shot for the ball moving after he approached it for an eagle putt. Rattled, he went on to three putt from there for a bogey.

Andrew Putnam backed up his opening 67 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round to post 10-under 132, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Putnam went about things a little differently today. He hit three more greens in regulation (15) and circled seven birdies, including on each of the three par 5s. (Thursday's set of four par breakers included an eagle-2 and just one birdie on the three-shotters.) Four of his birdies stretched outside 10 feet, including runs from 31'2" at the par-4 10th hole and 20'1" at the par-5 13th. The afternoon wave is tackling TPC Summerlin right now, but when he signed his card, Putnam's lead over his nearest pursuers from the late draw was three. UPDATE: Russell Knox emerged from the p.m. wave to tie Putnam atop the leaderboard.

Andrew Putnam opened the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 4-under-par 35-32=67 and sits three strokes back of the 18-hole co-leaders.

The rookie missed the cut at Silverado last week by four strokes, but he shot 2-under 70 in the second round, so he was at least headed in the right direction. Today at TPC Summerlin, he erased a bogey-5 at the fourth hole with an eagle and three birdies. The eagle landed at the drivable, par-4 15th where his drive landed only six yards from the cup and just off the green. Two of his birdies ranged 12-14 feet.

Andrew Putnam is set to begin his rookie season on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15.

It's a family affair on TOUR in 2014-15, as Andrew joins his older brother Michael on the big stage. Andrew nearly duplicated Michael's feat of winning the Tour money list, eventually settling for fifth place on the opening reshuffle. Andrew has played in just two prior PGA TOUR events, missing the cut in both. He should benefit,at least from a comfort standpoint, of having an elder brother to show him the ropes off the course. Perhaps that will make the transition easier and the on-course results stronger.

Andrew Putnam captured his first Tour win at the WNB Golf Classic when his 20-under-par 196 54-hole total held up as the final round was canceled.

Putnam slept on a seven-stroke advantage and seemed a lock for the win when the final round began. Not long after all players were on the course, the sustained wind became too strong for competition and play was halted. He began the week sixth on the Tour money list and is now second on the list at $248,173. That tally is more than enough to ensure that he will finish the regular season inside the top 25 on the money list, leading to a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. Now he just needs to try and match what his brother, Michael, did last year and top the money list.

Andrew Putnam fired a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-33=64 in the third round of the WNB Golf Classic, extending his lead to seven strokes at 20-under 196.

Putnam circled eight birdies on his third lap around Midland Country Club. Richard S. Johnson and Rod Pampling are his nearest pursuers in what is expected to be a very windy finale. Should he hold on for the win, he will assure himself of a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card and likely rise to first on the Tour money list.

Andrew Putnam posted a second consecutive 6-under-par 31-35=66 in the second round of the WNB Golf Classic to take a one-stroke lead into the third round.

Putnam started hot, gathering five birdies on his first seven holes at Midland Country Club. He would suffer his lone bogey at the par-4 10th, then add birdies on the par-4 14th and 17th holes. Contributing to his 12-under 132 tally are 30 GIR, with 16 coming in the second round. He will try and hold on for his first career Tour title this weekend.

Andrew Putnam opened the WNB Golf Classic with a 6-under-par 34-32=66 and joins Rod Pampling and Trevor Murphy in the 18-hole lead.

Putnam began his day on the 10th tee at Midlands Country Club, circling six birdies without a blemish on his first 15 holes. His only blunder was a bogey at the par-4 seventh, but bounced back with a birdie at the par-3 eighth. He currently sits sixth on the Tour money list, and is trying to follow in the footsteps of his older brother, Michael. You'll remember that Michael Putnam was the leader of the Tour regular season money list in 2013. If he can keep his card, it looks like the brothers are trending to play together on the big stage in 2014-15.

Andrew Putnam was the first to survive a five-way playoff for two spots at the open qualifier for the Shell Houston Open at Cypresswood Golf Club's Tradition Course in Springwood, Texas.

Putnam buried eight birdies against two bogeys for a 6-under-par 36-30=66 in regulation. He then parred the par-3 11th in the playoff to secure what will be his first start on the PGA TOUR as a professional and first TOUR start alongside older brother Michael. Kevin Kisner rode nine birdies against one bogey to an 8-under 31-33=64 and medalist honors in the four-spotter. He tied for first in the OQ for the Valspar Championship three weeks ago before missing the cut in the tournament proper. Former PGA TOUR member Bubba Dickerson was the runner-up at Cypresswood with a 7-under 32-33=65. He traded eight birdies with one bogey. The final berth was claimed by Ted Purdy on Tuesday morning. After a 6-under 32-34=66 (7 birdies, 1 bogey), the one-time TOUR winner birdied the par-5 18th in the playoff to earn his first start of the season. The field at The Golf Club of Houston is now complete at 144.
