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.
Apr 4 - 7:25 PM

Andrew Putnam tore off six birdies in his last seven holes en route to a bogey-free, 7-under-par 35-30=65 in today's second round of the Shell Houston Open to post 12-under 132 and assume outright possession of the overnight lead.

He went 5-for-5 in scrambling but how about that closing stretch! His only par coming in occurred at the par-3 seventh hole. Included among the six-pack of par breakers were conversions from 20'1", 21'8" and 14'10" at Nos. 5, 6 and 9. His only birdie going out disappeared from 10'11" at the par-4 17th. At last check, Putnam's strokes gained: putting for the day sat at 3.119. His current position isn't new to him, though. The rookie shared the 36-hole lead with Russell Knox at the Shriners in the fall before fading with a third-round 73 and a forgettable T33 at the conclusion of the tournament.
Apr 3 - 7:44 PM

Andrew Putnam fashioned a 5-under-par 36-31=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open and finished four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

After a spirited fall, the rookie has plummeted to 152nd in the FedExCup standings, so he needed this. Putnam found half of the 14 fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation at the Golf Club of Houston today. It didn't have the makings of a good score early. After opening par-par, he rinsed his tee ball at the par-4 third, but eventually salvaged bogey with a conversion from 12'4". It would be his only gaffe of the day. Putnam picked off six birdies the rest of the way, including a trio of conventional conversions stretching 11-16 feet. He saved the best for last, walking off with a 15-yard birdie from the fringe at the par-4 18th. At last check, he ranked 14th in both strokes-gained categories.

Andrew Putnam readies for his tournament debut at this week's Valero Texas Open.

Putnam arrives a bit out of shape. Not physically, but in terms of form. His last six starts have yielded just one payday, a T49 finish at the Northern Trust Open. Putnam has just five (of 16) rounds in red numbers during that span. Give the strength of this week's field, gamers can safely overlook Putnam when setting rosters.

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).

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.

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 Frys.com Open event. The Pepperdine alum earned his TOUR card by finishing second on last season's Web.com 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.
