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. Aug 6 - 6:00 PM

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.
Aug 4 - 8:25 AM

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.
Jul 9 - 8:23 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 6:26 PM

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.
Jun 24 - 5:52 PM

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.
May 13 - 8:42 PM

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.
Apr 2 - 3:14 PM

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.
Mar 25 - 8:40 AM

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.
