Jon Curran cruised to a 3-under-par 33-36=69 during the opening round of the Valero Texas Open, just two off the early pace set by Grayson Murray.
The 31-year-old Vandy product is 0-for-10 to start the season. That looks to be changing for the positive this week as he traded four birdies with one bogey on Thursday at TPC San Antonio's AT&T Oaks Course. That is currently 4.855 strokes better than the field average. The biggest weapon was his flat stick as he walked off the course gaining 3.228 strokes putting. The highlight was a 25'1" birdie bomb at the par-4 15th. This will be the first time Curran has positioned himself inside the top 45 after R1 since the 2017 Honda Classic. Given the difficult conditions, nothing is set in stone, but Curran is well on his way to earning his first PGA TOUR paycheck since the 2017 WM Phoenix Open, 14 months ago. Apr 19 - 3:08 PM

Playing this season on a Major Medical Extension, World No. 548 Jon Curran preps for his fourth Genesis Open and is looking to cash his first paycheck of the season.

The 30-year-old, who celebrates his birthday Feb. 17th, is 1-for-3 at the par-71 Riviera CC, cashing a T26 in 2016 (71-67-69-72) and missing the cuts in 2015 and 2017. He has 12 starts remaining on the medical extension to earn 305.413 FedExCup points and retain status. The Vanderbilt alum finished 207th in the FEC standings last season on limited starts (11), not playing the final 25 weeks of the season. He's 0-for-6 so far this season with three red numbers in 13 rounds and hasn't made a cut since T57 at the 2017 WM Phoenix Open over a year ago. The Florida resident is making his 81st career start with eight prior top 10s and his career best is runner-up two times, both playoff losses, most recently at the 2016 Memorial.

Playing this season on a Major Medical Extension, World No. 393 Jon Curran readies for his fourth consecutive RSM Classic. UPDATE: Curran missed the cut by eight after rounds of 77-70=147.

After kicking off the season with three straight missed cuts, the 30-year-old has 15 starts remaining on the medical extension to earn 305.413 FedExCup points and retain status. He finished 207th in the FEC standings last season on limited starts (11), not playing the final 25 weeks of the season. The Vanderbilt alum's best among seven cashes was T26 at the Safeway and after missing 17 weeks, made seven starts on the Tour, posting one top 10 (T10). His career best in 77 TOUR events is runner-up two times, both playoff losses, most recently at the 2016 Memorial. The Tequesta, Florida, resident is 3-for-3 at the RSM with two finishes outside the top 50 and a best of T4 in 2016 (67-70-66-66), the first year the tourney utilized the two-course rota.

Prior to the start of the event, Jon Curran has withdrawn from this week's Valspar Championship, citing a rib injury. Tim Wilkinson will take his spot in the field. UPDATE: Curran was an early-week, pre-tourney WD again before the Shell Houston Open. UPDATE #2: Curran returned to action Oct. 5th at the 2018 Safeway Open and MC'd by five at 4-over 74-74=148.

Curran was a pre-tournament WD at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in early February but returned since then with back-to-back missed cuts at the Genesis Open and The Honda Classic. There was no injury cited back in early February, but the breadcrumbs suggest this could be a nagging injury that he hoped he would be able to play through this week. The Vandy product will need to regain health soon as he currently ranks 147th in the FedExCup standings. In his place, Tim Wilkinson will be making his third appearance at the Valspar, with a T46 (2010) and MC (2015) currently on his resume.

Jon Curran concocted a 3-under-par 32-35=67 during the opening round of The Honda Classic, giving him an early spot inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

The Vanderbilt product split 11 (of 14) fairways to give himself good looks on approach, and also the ability to use lift, clean, and place, to it's full advantage. From there, he gained 3.255 strokes approaching-the-green, allowing him to survive a poor day of putting. Curran missed three putts from inside eight feet, including a 3'2" birdie attempt at the par-4 fourth. The highlight of the round came at the par-4 sixth where he holed out from the fairway (36'2") for birdie. Playing his seventh competitive round at PGA National's Champion Course, this goes in the books as his first round at par or better.

Jon Curran takes his talents to Playa del Carmen for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba. UPDATE: Curran missed the cut by two with even-par 74-68=142.

The 29-year-old is playing his third straight OHL after a missed cut (by three) in 2015 and T29 last year (68-71-67-70). Last season ended at 66th in FedExCup points with three top 10s in 30 starts and a career-best P2 at the Memorial back in June. The transplanted Floridian is 2-for-3 so far this season with a best of T26 at the Safeway and arrives off a missed cut (by five) last week at the Shriners (72-72).

Jon Curran closed out his two-day first round at the BMW Championship with a 3-under-par 33-36=69 to sit four strokes off the early pace.

The Vandy product striped 13 (of 14) fairways to keep himself in scoring position all round. From there, he peppered 13 greens and rolled in more than his fair share of putts. It started with an 18'10" birdie bomb at the par-5 fifth which kicked off a three-hole birdie train. The final two cars of the train came on putts from 11-to-16 feet. Curran missed the green at the par-3 13th and failed to get up-and-down, leading to his lone blemish of the round. Entering the week at 69th in the FedExCup race, he'll need to keep his foot on the accelerator all week if he wants to advance to East Lake in two weeks.

Second-year man Jon Curran looks to extend his postseason debut at this week's BMW Championship in Carmel, Indiana, and arrives at 69th in the FedExCup standings.

The Massachusetts native opened the Playoffs at 49th in FEC points and has deposited just 22.00 more with T68 and T67 in the first two legs. He'll need to bring the noise to Crooked Stick Golf Club if he wants to continue on, as only the top 30 advance to the TOUR Championship. The 29-year-old will have his hands full on the 7,567-yard layout as he ranks 190th on TOUR in driving distance (271.5) and 167th in greens in regulation.

Jon Curran arrives for his Deutsche Bank Championship debut at 60th in the FedExCup standings.

The Massachusetts native posted a T68 (75-67-72-76) at The Barclays in his Playoffs debut but dropped 11 spots after collecting just 10.00 FEC points. He'll need a little better than that this week at TPC Boston if he wants to advance. The Vanderbilt alum has three top 10s on the season in 28 events, highlighted by a career-tying-best P2 at the Memorial, seven starts ago. His best finishes since are T26 (Travelers) and T33 at the PGA Championship in New Jersey (Baltusrol GC). The 29-year-old ranks 21st in SG: Around-the-Green and 20th in SG: Putting, but 112th in SG: Approach-the-Green and 169th in GIR.

Jon Curran heads home to the Northeast for his tournament debut at this week's PGA Championship.

The Hopkinton, Massachusetts, native will feel comfortable on the style of golf course in terms of climate and grass types that are often found in this region. However, the length of the course may be an issue. Despite being a par 70, Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course stretches out to 7,428 yards to put a premium on distance. Unfortunately, Curran ranks 196th on TOUR in driving distance and 97th in approaches from over 200 yards. The main asset for the Vandy product is his short game and it will need to be clicking on all cylinders this week as his makes his second career start in a major (MC, 2010 U.S. Open).

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, Jon Curran fashioned a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in today's weather-delayed final round of the Memorial to post 15-under 273, and then lost to 54-hole co-leader William McGirt on the second playing of the par-4 18th in sudden death with bogey to McGirt's par.

The second-year man settles for his second runner-up in his 55th career start having also lost in extra time at the 2015 Puerto Rico Open. He began the final frame in a four-way T4 on 13-under after opening his tourney debut in 68-67-68, one shy of a trio of overnight leaders. The 29-year-old found nine (of 14) fairways and conjured 11 greens in regulation, posting 2.213 in SG: Putting. His cumulative in SGP was 8.494, No. 1 in the field. The Vanderbilt alum bogeyed the first but erased it with birdies at Nos. 2, 5 and 8 to turn 2-under and T3. He bogeyed the 12th just prior to the weather suspension but returned to birdie the 17th. Curran had a chance to win in regulation at the 18th but missed birdie from 15 feet. It's his third top 10 of the season in 22 starts and leaps 48 spots in FEC points to 36th.

Jon Curran tacked on a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the weather-delayed third round of the Memorial Tournament to post 13-under 203, up one spot on the live leaderboard into a four-way T4, one back of 54-hole clubhouse leader William McGirt.

The 29-year-old continued his impressive tourney debut following a 2 hour, 28 minute weather delay on Saturday. He was one of eight (of 75) stranded but returned at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday to finish off a five-birdie one-bogey effort. The Vanderbilt alum's lone blemish was a three-putt at the par-4 14th from 65'3" and otherwise went 8-for-8 in scrambling. His highlight came just prior to the stoppage, holing-out for birdie-3 at the 17th from 43'6" away in the rough.

Jon Curran made his second-round move at the Memorial, signing for a 5-under-par 32-35=67 to reach 9-under 135 through two days, currently three off the co-leaders on the live leaderboard.

Curran split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 10 greens in regulation. He wasn't particularly sharp around the greens on the missed GIRs, settling for a 5-of-8 scrambling effort. On the flip side, his approach game was dialed in. Most notable was a 96-yard eagle hole out at the par-5 fifth hole. In addition to the eagle, he added six birdies to offset the three-pack of bogeys. Curran is easily clear of the projected 2-under cut line, so this will be his sixth straight paycheck earned. Making his tournament debut at the Memorial, he will now prep for a weekend battle with Muirfield Village Golf Club.

Jon Curran cruised to a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the first round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, putting him inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

Curran opened on the back nine and traded three birdies with just one bogey before making the turn. The bogey came at the par-4 14th hole as a result of a missed 3'9" attempt. His round really picked up on the par-3 fifth hole as he rolled in an 8'2" birdie and backed it up with two more circles at Nos. 6 and 7. From there, he found himself tied atop the leaderboard at 5-under but dropped a shot in the form of a three-putt on the par-4 eight hole. Regardless of the bogey coming in, Curran is in great shape through 18 holes as he attempts to repeat his T6 at last year's Byron Nelson.

Jon Curran smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's final round of THE PLAYERS to conclude his tournament debut on 1-under 287, up 28 spots on the live leaderboard to T39 and the second-best lap in the clubhouse.

There were 16 bogey-free rounds thru 36 holes (eight each round) and of course, NONE in R3 when green conditions were nearly unplayable. There were 149 three-putts in the third round, the most ever for a single round at THE PLAYERS. Curran was not immune, succumbing to 7-over 79 that included three straight doubles on holes 16-18 as he made the turn. The second-year man rebounded with a five-birdie effort in the finale, and posted his second blemish-free lap of the week, joining a 2-under 70 in R1.
