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.
Jun 5 - 6:57 PM

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.
Jun 4 - 7:55 PM

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.
Jun 3 - 2:01 PM

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.
May 19 - 4:03 PM

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.
May 15 - 4:03 PM

Jon Curran carved out a 1-under-par 36-35=71 on day four of the Valero Texas Open to post 8-under 280, down three on the leaderboard into a four-way T9, and eclipsing a previous best of T44 on debut last year.

The second-year man began Sunday's play on 7-under (T6) after opening in 70-68-71. He split eight (of 14) fairways and for a second straight lap, hit 12 greens in regulation. The 29-year-old outpaced three bogeys with four birdies, including back-to-backs on 16 and 17, the former from 16'7" being his longest conversion of the round. The finish got him back into the top 10, notching just his second of the season (T4, RSM) in his 17th start.
Apr 24 - 7:44 PM

Jon Curran steadied a 4-under-par 32-36=68 during the second round of the Valero Texas Open, climbing inside the top 5 at 6-under 138.

Curran entered the week ranked 36th in scrambling and 17th in sand save percentage in particular. Staying true to those numbers, he went 3-for-3 from the sand today. In fact they all happened on back-to-back-to-back holes starting at the par-5 14th where he got up and down from the sand to circle a birdie and then save par at the 15th and 16th. Given the runoffs around the green at TPC San Antonio's Oaks Course, Curran's scrambling prowess will continue to be useful as he heads into the weekend just four strokes off the lead.
Apr 22 - 8:09 PM

Jon Curran connected on a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the first round of the Shell Houston Open, sitting just three strokes shy of the current lead.

The putter caught fire today for the Vandy product in route to a seven-birdie opener. He splashed in six putts from outside seven feet with the most notable being a 47'6" birdie bomb on the par-3 ninth hole. Despite a miss from 4'3" on the closing hole, Curran gained 2.945 strokes with the putter during his opening round. In six previous rounds at the Golf Club of Houston, he'd never signed for better than a 3-under 69. This round might not be repeatable, but it's a great start to the week.
Mar 31 - 7:51 PM

Jon Curran cruised to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 in round two of the Northern Trust Open to reach the midpoint at 4-under 138, six strokes off the pace.

The Vanderbilt product skyrocketed up the leaderboard today as he entered T56 after an opening-round 71 and leaves the course in a share of 22nd place. Curran split 10 (of 14) fairways on the day and now ranks second in the field after tallying 22 through two rounds. From the fairway, it was easy for Curran to avoid the big numbers all day. He missed the cut in his NTO debut last year, so he's already on his way to a career-best finish here at Riviera Country Club.
Feb 19 - 8:57 PM

Jon Curran missed the cut in his 2015 Northern Trust Open debut and is back again this week for another crack at Riviera Country Club.

Curran stays in California as he looks to rebound from a missed cut at last week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He was hovering around the cut line all Saturday, so it's not like he was a complete disaster. The Vandy product is just two weeks removed from a T11 at the WM Phoenix Open. Curran ranks 94th in the PGA TOUR's all-around ranking which means he's a deep sleeper to at least consider this week at Riviera CC.
Feb 16 - 8:37 AM

Second-year man Jon Curran is a native of Massachusetts, a Florida resident, and a graduate of Vanderbilt University in 2009.

The 28-year-old concluded last season's rookie campaign 113th in the FedExCup standings ending with back-to-back missed cuts at the Wyndham and at The Barclays. This season began with early exits as well at the and at the Shriners before a T53 at the 77-man no-cut CIMB, closing in 4-over 76. A T29 at the OHL Classic (68-71-67-70) was chased with solo fourth at The RSM Classic (67-70-66-66), his second best showing in 38 career events. Curran ranks 149th on TOUR in strokes gained: tee-to-green, but 13th in strokes gained: putting. He led the field at the RSM in SGP with a cumulative mark of 7.459.

After a T54 in last year's tournament debut, Jon Curran wrapped his second appearance at The RSM Classic with a final-round 4-under-par 33-33=66 and a 72-hole aggregate of 13-under 269, nine in arrears to champion Kevin Kisner.

It's not his career best, that would be a P2 at the 2015 Puerto Rico Open, but it's his second best and he pockets $273,500 for his efforts. The second-year man heads to the holiday break with three straight cashes and trending in the right direction with T53-T29 and this week's top-5 finish. Curran circled five on the card in the finale on 15 greens in regulation. All were from outside 13 feet with four traveling greater than 20 feet. His lone bogey came at the par-4 10th after failing to get up-and-down. For the week, the 28-year-old was T4 in both strokes gained stats, including first in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative mark of 7.459. He capped the stellar week with the flat stick by dropping an 11-footer at the last for par, securing solo fourth.

Jon Curran crafted a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to reach the three-quarter mark at 9-under 203, currently T7 on the leaderboard.

Now in his second season on the PGA TOUR, Curran was the last of nine rookies to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs last season, eventually finishing 113th in FEC points. His season best on 28 starts was a five-man playoff loss at the Puerto Rico Open. The sophomore opened 2015-16 with two missed cuts and chased with T53 at the CIMB in Malayasia and T29 last week in México so he was trending in the right direction. Curran began Saturday's play at 5-under (T21) and six adrift after opening in 67-70. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation for a third consecutive day, circling six, including two from between 34 and 36 feet. The 28-year-old currently ranks first in the field in putts per GIR with a stellar 1.590 mark, and at last check, was T2 in total birdies with 21. He went T54 in his tournament debut last year.

After finishing T54 last season, Jon Curran contests his second RSM Classic this week in Saint Simons Island, Georgia.

Curran was the last (of nine) rookies to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs last season and was bounced after a missed cut at The Barclays, eventually finishing 113th in FEC points. He made 14 cuts and missed 14 cuts, but was buoyed by five top 10s, highlighted by a five-man playoff loss at the Puerto Rico Open. The 28-year-old added two more top 10s post-PRO, including a T10 at the Travelers, but finished the season missing five of his last seven cuts and nothing better than T37 (Barracuda). He began 2015-16 with two missed cuts and chased with T53 (CIMB) and T29 at last week's OHL.
