Jon Curran was the first man out in the third round of the Valspar Championship and responded with a 1-over-par 36-36=72.
He spread five birdies, four bogeys and a double bogey on the par-4 18th across Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course. Highlights included a 29'9" birdie on the par-4 ninth hole and a 17'9" birdie on the par-5 14th. The good news for Curran is that he will not have to play by himself in Sunday's finale. That "honor" will go to the man who ends the day with the highest 54-hole score assuming there are no withdrawals or disqualifications. His 2-over 216 won't be that number. Mar 14 - 11:05 AM

Jon Curran bogeyed the 72nd hole of the Puerto Rico Open, and then lost in a five-way playoff to Alex Cejka.

Curran converted a birdie at the par-4 17th to reach 8-under. However, he bogeyed the par-5 18th to settle at 7-under 281 and bring Cejka and two others already in the clubhouse into play for the title. Playing partner Emiliano Grillo also bogeyed the last to join the party. After Curran's birdie try from off the putting surface at the par-5 18th in the playoff didn't drop, Cejka poured in the clincher. It's Curran personal-best finish in 17 career PGA TOUR starts. He now has three top 10s on the season and will attempt to parlay the fortune into success at this week's Valspar Championship.
Mar 8 - 6:39 PM

Jon Curran picked off his third straight red number at the Puerto Rico Open, logging a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round.

Curran landed 12 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to a singular square at the par-4 14th hole. Elsewhere, he converted birdie three times. After opening 70-71, the rookie is 5-under 211 and sits just one stroke adrift of the 54-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
Mar 7 - 3:20 PM

Jon Curran tacked on a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open and posted 3-under 141, three shots adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Curran wrung what he could out of just 10 greens in regulation today. He birdied two par 3s and two par 5s to offset a trio of bogey-5s. At last check, he ranked T72 in the field in GIR, but co-led with 10 birdies.
Mar 6 - 1:11 PM

With a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, Jon Curran sits two strokes off the overnight lead.

The rookie open-qualified for this event in 2013 and placed T24 in the tournament proper, so it stands to reason that he tapped into that experience today. He traded six birdies with four bogey-5s. When you hit just 11 greens in regulation, a roller-coaster ride is probable when the putts drop often enough. Curran was the last of 15 to finish inside the top 10 on the leaderboard today. He arrived on the island slotted 119th in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 5 - 5:42 PM

Jon Curran has regained entry into this week's Honda Classic.

Curran was one of five to get bumped after the second reshuffle occurred at the conclusion of the Northern Trust Open. He was first alternate after the dust settled. Two withdrawals reopened the door for the PGA TOUR rookie. He's been all or nothing with two top 10s among just three paydays in 10 starts. He went just 1-for-5 to open 2015, but that featured a T10 at Pebble Beach. Not surprisingly, he'll be making his debut at PGA National.
Feb 23 - 3:25 PM

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

The PGA TOUR rookie gained entry via his top 10 at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. As expected, he'll be making his first start at Riviera Country Club. With a pair of top 10s and a T54 (McGladrey) on the board, Curran has been able to overcome six missed cuts. While it can't be easy to deal with the learning curve, he has solace in the fact that he's currently 75th on the money list and 100th in FedExCup points.
Feb 16 - 11:18 AM

Jon Curran carded a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in today's final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

It was solid, not spectacular golf that got the job done today. Curran went 3-for-13 in birdie chances and squared only one bogey before posting 15-under 272. This ended a wicked drought during which he went 1-for-7 with but T54 at The McGladrey Classic in the fall. Yet, today's effort secured his second top 10 of the season in just three paydays. It also eliminates the wait for a spot to open at the Northern Trust where he was first alternate. The rookie will gain entry via the exemption assuming he accepts it.
Feb 15 - 6:26 PM

Jon Curran signed for a 3-under-par 36-33=69 at Pebble Beach Golf Links in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

His 13-under 202 tally has him safely inside the top 10 with 18 holes to play. He began his day on the back nine at Pebble Beach, trading two birdies for two bogeys. He was blemish-free on his back nine, bagging three birdies including a 12'10" effort on the par-4 third hole. The rookie entered this week 135th in the FedExCup standings, so a top-10 finish on Sunday could completely change the complexion of his 2014-15 season.
Feb 14 - 5:41 PM

Jon Curran thrashed Spyglass Hill Golf Club for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 in his second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The rookie needed this in the worst way. He arrived this week having missed his last five cuts dating back to the fall. That drought isn't official over yet even though he's 10-under 133 at the midpoint of the action on the Monterey Peninsula since the cut will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes, but he's only two strokes off the 36-hole lead, so he's in terrific position to cash. Curran split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation today, converting four birdies on each nine. He's squared only one bogey for the week, efficiency set up by landing 31 GIR. Not only is his 64 the lowest on Spyglass Hill today, but it's his career low by two strokes on the PGA TOUR. This is his 14th start. Look for him on the host course on Saturday.
Feb 13 - 6:56 PM

Jon Curran readies for this week's Farmers Insurance Open on the heels of four straight missed cuts.

The PGA TOUR rookie made his presence known in the season lid-lifter, finishing T8 at the Open. Since then, he's missed cuts in four of his next five starts, adding in a T54 at The McGladrey Classic. Curran currently ranks 37th in strokes gained:tee-to-green but should not be trusted this week as he makes his Farmers debut.
Feb 4 - 9:35 AM

Jon Curran started his PGA TOUR rookie season with a 2-for-5 Fall Series and currently sits in 86th position of the FedExCup standings.

Curran kicked off the season with a T8 at the Open but has cooled considerably since. He secured his PGA TOUR card via the Tour money list, but his form was ice cold entering the new season. The rookie is now ranked 15th in the Tour reshuffle. Gamers will be wise to avoid Curran most weeks as an 8-for-23 record on the Tour generally doesn't transfer well.

Jon Curran will get introduced to El Camaleón Golf Club during this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The PGA TOUR rookie enters the week ranked 68th in the FedExCup standings after a 2-for-4 start to the season, including a T8 at the Open. His 70.24% of fairways hit to start the season should come in handy this week on a track that requires precision off the tee. Curran has already racked up his fair share of FEC points, but will have a good chance to collect some more prior to the first reshuffle which comes after this week.

Jon Curran carded a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the Open to finish inside the top 10 at 11-under 277.

Curran's rookie season is off and rolling in the right direction. His final lap around Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course was a calm one, featuring just three birdies and one bogey to go with a single bogey. In addition to an 11'6" birdie at the par-4 eighth hole, his biggest highlight came at the par-4 14th hole when he made a 95'6" pitch-in birdie. With his first top-10 finish safely in the books, he has done wonders in terms of securing himself a high spot on the first Tour reshuffle.

Jon Curran conjured up a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Open to join Robert Allenby in the clubhouse lead at 9-under 207.

The rookie gathered six birdies on his lap around Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course, handing back a lone bogey. Highlights included an 11'11" birdie on the par-3 11th, a 10'10" birdie on the par-3 15th and a 26'4" birdie on the par-5 18th to end the afternoon. This is just his sixth career PGA TOUR start. The prospect of kicking off the 2014-15 season with his first top-10 finish would be huge for early-season momentum.
