Hudson Swafford put forth a nine-point effort in the final round of the Barracuda Championship with his 3-under-par 33-36=69 to end the week with 33 points.
Swafford had a chance at something special if he could have grabbed a few more birdies down the stretch and potentially eagle the par-5 18th, but he went in the other direction. He bogeyed each of his last three holes, which were his only blemishes at Montrêux G&CC on the afternoon. While he has a reputation of struggling with the putter, two of his birdies fell from outside of 19 feet. He now must perform well at the Wyndham Championship if he is to retain his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. The University of Georgia product is currently outside of the top 125. Aug 3 - 5:13 PM

Hudson Swafford completed the first two rounds of the Barracuda Championship with 18 points and sits eight back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The rookie has signed for a pair of 4-under-par 68s worth nine points apiece. He's buried five birdies against one bogey in both rounds. It sets up a potentially season-saving weekend. Swafford is currently 143rd in the FedExCup standings and 146th on the money list.

Hudson Swafford readies for his debut at this week's Barracuda Championship.

Swafford looked to be on-track after his U.S. Open appearance, earning back-to-back top 25s at the Travelers Championship and Quicken Loans National, but has fallen back since. Overall, 16 of his last 18 finishes have been outside the top 40. Given his form and 118th ranking in par breakers, there are no real indicators for predicting success this week.

Hudson Swafford managed a 2-over-par 37-36=73 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National but remains inside the top five at 3-under 211.

After squaring three bogeys and settling for 13 pars on his first 16 holes at Congressional Country Club, Swafford finally got on the board with a birdie from 7'8" on the par-4 17th. While it may be disappointing that he didn't fare a little better on the course, he didn't lose any ground to the field. A solid final round and a little help at the top could result in his first PGA TOUR win and thrust his name in the hat for rookie-of-the-year honors. Considering he was the last alternate to earn a spot in the field thanks to a William McGirt withdrawal, he's made the absolute most of his opportunity.

Hudson Swafford chased his opening 69 at the Quicken Loans National with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round to post 5-under 137.

He came to rest just one swing off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. Swafford went 2-for-4 in scrambling and found five birdies at Congressional today. His set of par breakers included conversions from 24'4" and 12'6" at the ninth and 15th holes, respectively. He also poured in a zero-putt eight-yarder at 10. Since he arrived in Bethesda, Maryland, slotted outside the top 150 in both FedExCup points and earnings, he's performing under some pressure with only nine events (including the QLN) remaining in the regular season.

Hudson Swafford opened the Quicken Loans National with a 2-under-par 34-35=69, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

The rookie went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee on the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club today and promptly bogeyed the par-3 over water. He recovered with four birdies against just one more bogey to snatch his fourth sub-70 in his last five rounds going back to last week's opening 66 at TPC River Highlands (en route to a T24). Swafford's long birdie today measured 10'10" at the par-5 16th.

Hudson Swafford has been added to the published field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

He started the week as the third alternate, but gained entry when William McGirt withdrew. The rookie is bouncing off a T24 at the Travelers Championship. It was his first top 40 in 14 starts. As you'd expect, he has not pegged it at Congressional in competition.
Jun 25 - 11:34 AM

Hudson Swafford pured a bogey-free, 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The rookie rolled into town having missed five straight cuts and seven of his last eight. Now 155th in FedExCup points, there's little time to make a move and qualify for the Playoffs. Mission accomplished, at least for one day. Swafford missed only one of 14 fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation at TPC River Highlands today. He picked off four birdies, including a walk-off gem from 45'11" at the par-4 ninth.
Jun 19 - 3:29 PM

Hudson Swafford posted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Fed St. Jude Classic.

Prior to medaling at the U.S. Open sectional qualifier in Memphis on Monday, Swafford was struggling, but he's a rookie, so it's expected more often than not. Today's lid-lifter at TPC Southwind marked his debut in the tournament, also no surprise, but that he's just two strokes off the clubhouse lead is a bonus. He hit 11 greens and erased two bogeys with five birdies, four of which from outside 13 feet. He sandwiched a zero-putt six-yarder at the par-3 14th with conventional conversions from 30'11" and 32'10" at the par-4 13th and 15th holes, respectively.
Jun 5 - 6:43 PM

Hudson Swafford made it look easy en route to a 10-under-par 69-64=133 at Colonial Country Club's South and North Courses, respectively, in today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier in Memphis.

The PGA TOUR rookie converted an eagle and 10 birdies to erase just two bogeys while picking up medalist honors. He missed the cut in his only previous appearance in the U.S. Open in 2010. A total of 13 qualified from this site. They are: 134--J.B. Holmes ... 135--David Toms; Jeff Maggert; Joe Ogilvie; Kevin Kisner; David Gossett ... 136--Casey Wittenberg; Cody Gribble; Jason Millard (three eagle-3s); Robby Shelton ... 137--Brady Watt; Hunter Stewart. The final two survived a five-man playoff from which Scott Langley and Sam Love landed first- and second-alternate status, respectively. Sebastian Cappelen was the odd man out of that quintet.

Hudson Swafford is back in action after a three week breather at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The rookie's latest finish came at the Shell Houston Open where he finished strong to earn a nice T43 finish. All three of Swafford's top-30 finishes came on easier courses that played at least a half shot under par, on average. That makes TPC Louisiana a nice venue for the Georgia Bulldog, as it has played more than a stroke under par each of the past two seasons.

Hudson Swafford has been added to the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Swafford was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday, but he gained entry when Charl Schwartzel withdrew. The PGA TOUR rookie is 119th in FedExCup points, but hasn't finished inside the top 40 in his last five starts, the first three of which resulted in missed cuts. This will mark his debut at Bay Hill.
Mar 17 - 10:58 AM

Hudson Swafford turned in a 3-under-par 33-34=67 for his opening round of The Honda Classic.

He wasn't in the field until Scott Piercy withdrew to have surgery on his elbow, but Swafford capitalized today. He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, limiting the negative to a bogey-4 at the seventh hole where he yanked his tee ball into the left rough. Elsewhere he rolled in an eagle at the par-5 third and a pair of birdies. All of his conversions found the cup from inside eight feet. His only gaffe on the greens occurred at the par-5 18th where he whiffed from 52 inches for birdie. The rookie walked off PGA National sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Feb 27 - 3:46 PM

Hudson Swafford has been added to the published field of this week's Honda Classic.

The rookie was the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He snuck in as the replacement for Scott Piercy, who was the last of three withdrawals this morning. Not surprisingly, this will mark Swafford's first appearance in the tournament. After opening the calendar year with a T8 at the Sony and T25 at Humana, he's missed three straight cuts, so PGA National is a cruel host for anyone wanting to hop off the schneid.

Hudson Swafford has been added to the published field of this week's Northern Trust Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie received the last sponsor exemption into the field of 144. Without it, he'd have sat outside the top-15 alternates. His first appearance at Riviera comes on the heels of an 0-for-2 slide after a pair of top 25s to begin the new year.
