Luke Guthrie crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois, and sits five strokes adrift at 12-under 201.

Guthrie, a native of Quincy, Illinois, and a University of Illinois product, began play on Saturday at 8-under (T11) and four swings back. He overshadowed one bogey, at the par-4 15th, with birdies at Nos. 1, 9, 11, 13 and 16. Guthrie's five-birdie set included a 23'11" roll on the par-4 11th for his longest conversion of the day. He also capitalized from 15'6" at the par-4 ninth. In total, Guthrie found the short grass 11 (of 14) times and hit 16 greens in regulation, registering 1.688 putts per GIR. The 25-year-old, who finished T5 at his 2012 Deere debut, will enter the final round in a three-way T9. He will need something similar to his final-round 64 in 2012 if he hopes to sneak his first PGA TOUR title in 80 career events. More realistically, he's chasing a season-best T7 (22 starts) at the Valspar Championship.
Jul 11 - 10:41 PM

Luke Guthrie followed his opening 64 at the John Deere Classic with a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round to post 8-under 134.

He's two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but he could very well be sitting atop the leaderboard if not for his finish. After trading five birdies with one bogey, Guthrie double-bogeyed the par-4 eighth hole where he didn't find the putting surface until his fourth stroke (due to sloppy ball-striking). He then walked off with a bogey-5 at No. 9, also as a result of a wayward tee ball. His longest conversion of the day dropped for birdie from 20'1" at the par-3 12th hole, but he also poured in par saves ranging 16-19 feet at Nos. 11 and 3.
Jul 10 - 1:21 PM

Luke Guthrie scored a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in today's opening round of the John Deere Classic, finishing one stroke back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

The University of Illinois product picked off eight birdies before walking off with a bogey-5 at the par-4 18th hole. Three of his birdies dropped in from outside 10 feet, including conversions from 39'4" and 26'11" at Nos. 7 and 10, respectively. Overall, he hit 16 greens in regulation to set the stage for the tidy number. In fact, it's his lowest aggregate since he signed for the same following his final round of the Shriners in October of 2013.
Jul 9 - 6:40 PM

Luke Guthrie contests his third Greenbrier Classic this week and enters the festivities 145th in the FedExCup standings.

Guthrie is 1-for-2 at the Greenbrier Resort with a T26 in 2014 that featured rounds of 67-69-68-71. In last year's loop of the Old White TPC, he was T13 after 36 holes and T12 after 54, but faded to a final-round 1-over-par 71. The 25-year-old is 12-for-21 on the season, with two top 25s, one for a top 10 (T7, Valspar Championship). Guthrie has opened with sub-par rounds in each of his last four events but hasn't been able to capitalize on his early success. The latest examples were second-round scores of 73 and 74 in his last two starts to MC. He also flashed some form three starts ago at the AT&T Byron Nelson (also a TPC resort course), where he was T12 after 36 holes, and T18 after 54, but stalled out with a final-round 74 to finish T60.
Jun 30 - 4:47 PM

Luke Guthrie is 5-under-par 69-65=134 through two rounds of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

He traded six birdies with two bogeys. The squares included a 4 at the 14th hole, which is normally a par 4, but is being played as a 104-yard par 3 today. Guthrie closed with birdies at 17 and 18 to climb within four swings of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He arrived in Irving, Texas, ranked 129th in the FedExCup standings.
May 29 - 4:34 PM

Luke Guthrie trotted around Colonial Country Club in 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Guthrie has shown signs of life at times, but he's floundering at 144th in the FedExCup standings. Today's aggregate equals his season low, so he has to feel very good about how he played. The 25-year-old landed 15 greens in regulation and suffered just one bogey, that a 4 at the fourth hole. Elsewhere, he holed out for eagle from the rough five yards away at the par-5 first where he made the turn. Two of his three birdies ranged 12-16 feet and he poured in a par save from 12'4" at the par-4 fifth. Guthrie signed his card sitting just two swings back of the foursome atop the leaderboard.
May 21 - 9:33 PM

Luke Guthrie ranks 146th in FedExCup points heading into this week's PLAYERS.

Albeit just four rounds, Guthrie is 0-for-2 at THE PLAYERS and hasn't broken par yet. The 25-year-old has a lone top 10 (T7, Valspar) on 15 starts this season and most recently missed the cut at Harbour Town Golf Links and TPC Louisiana, both Pete Dye designs, as is the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. There may be a common denominator here.
May 5 - 10:20 PM

Luke Guthrie back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in his third round of the Shell Houston Open to post 9-under 207, five strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Guthrie piped 10 (of 14) fairways, but he created only 11 opportunities to score and converted just twice. Elsewhere, he squared three bogeys, all as a result of failing to save par after a missed green in regulation. So, barring a really low one on Sunday, he'll have to wait at least another two weeks to collect his first victory on the PGA TOUR. Only a victory in Houston would procure an invitation to the Masters.
Apr 4 - 6:04 PM

Luke Guthrie added a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the Shell Houston Open to post 10-under 134 at the midpoint.

He's now bogey-free through 36 holes. After failing to miss a green in regulation on Thursday, he needed to go 5-for-5 to keep today's card spotless. His greatest test occurred at the par-5 fourth hole. Guthrie found the fairway off the tee, but yanked his second into the water left of the fairway. He'd eventually salvage par from 32'7". His four birdies included conversions from 18'1" and 14'5" at Nos. 16 and 2, respectively. At the time he signed his card, he held a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead but will settled one back of Phil Mickelson's pace.
Apr 3 - 6:42 PM

Luke Guthrie spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open to assume outright possession of the early clubhouse lead.

Guthrie hasn't found a gear this season. He's 8-for-12 with only one top-35 finish (T7, Valspar) and sits 145th in the FedExCup standings. Today may have served as his best performance with his irons in a long time, if not ever. He piped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed all 18 greens in regulation. The 25-year-old converted six times for birdie, three of which ranging 10-16 feet, but his longest roll disappeared for par from 17'3" at the par-5 fourth hole. This is his lowest aggregate since he closed out last year's Wyndham Championship with a 65.
Apr 2 - 1:22 PM

Luke Guthrie conjured up a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to crack the top 10 at 5-under 279.

Guthrie had done next to nothing in 2014-15, with a T39 at the no-cut CIMB Classic representing his best finish of the season. His final lap around the Copperhead Course featured four birdies to just one bogey. Three of the birdies were of serious length, dropping from 36'11", 26'3" and 17'3" on the second, sixth and 15th holes respectively. He will certainly try and continue this momentum as soon as possible. He is still well outside of the top 125 in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 15 - 4:41 PM

Luke Guthrie went out in today's opening round of the Valspar Championship in 3-under-par 35-33=68, finishing two strokes in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

At 187th in the FedExCup standings, Guthrie is the epitome of scuffling. He's cashed six times in 10 starts, but has just one top 55 (T39, CIMB). Today's aggregate is his lowest in his last 18 rounds, so continue to hold your breath if you're on board this week. He striped only seven (of 13) fairways, but found 15 greens in regulation and circled five birdies. The set featured conversions from 16'7", 14'6" and 29'0" at the 18th, fourth and fifth holes, respectively.
Mar 12 - 2:34 PM

Luke Guthrie makes his third appearance in The Honda Classic at PGA National's Champion Course this week.

Guthrie offers gamers solid course history, finishing third in his 2013 debut and returning with a T24 last year. He needs something good to happen, as he sits 174th in the FedExCup standings this week. While he made three of his five cuts on the West Coast Swing, his best effort was a distant T59 in the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Feb 23 - 8:24 PM

Luke Guthrie prepares for his third Waste Management Phoenix Open having missed the cut at TPC Scottsdale in his previous two trips.

Guthrie's current form isn't much better. Six starts into his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, he has missed two cuts and finished outside of the top 60 on three occasions. The brightest spot was a T39 in the CIMB Classic. There are many reasons to lay off him this week, and few to invest.
