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.
Jan 28 - 8:44 PM

Luke Guthrie posted a 3-for-4 record during the fall, arriving at the new year ranked 152nd on the FedExCup leaderboard.

The University of Illinois product is showing more of that consistency that we grew to love during the 2013-14 season. He has yet to appear in the top 25 this season, but he's entering with 12 top 25s over the last two seasons and 15 in 61 career starts. At 24 years of age, Guthrie should be firmly planted on the horizon of gamers as a potential breakout candidate in 2015.

Luke Guthrie shared 55th place in his OHL Classic at Mayakoba debut last year and returns this week for a chance to improve upon his tournament history.

Guthrie has missed one cut in three appearances during the 2014-15 season. He finished last season ranked 126th in driving accuracy and 95th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, so El Camaleón GC may not be the ideal course for the Illinois product. His talent stands out among this weaker field, but there will be better weeks for gamers to invest in Guthrie.

Luke Guthrie back-loaded a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in his opening round of the Open, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

Guthrie poured in four of his five birdies on the last six holes of Silverado today. The 4s at Nos. 16 and 18 aren't surprising -- the walk-off dropped in from 11'3" -- but he preceded those with conversions from 14'3" and 27'9" at the 13th and 15th holes, respectively. Guthrie started the show with a round-long roll from 31'9" for birdie at the par-3 second. He also made good on a look at par from 21'4" at 6. At last check, his strokes gained-putting clip for the round sat at 2.617. That number is weighed down by a pair of two-putts inside 10 feet.

Luke Guthrie will take his first peek at The North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa in this week's Open.

Guthrie had a nice sophomore season last year but actually took a step back in terms of final FEC standing goes. His consistency was the big improvement, though, as he posted an 18-for-26 record. Guthrie's new-found consistency paired with his high upside makes him a very intriguing breakout option that gamers should monitor closely this season.

Luke Guthrie begins his week at The Barclays with confidence riding high.

While he's never played Ridgewood CC, the 95th-ranked player in the FedExCup standings is playing some of the best golf of his season. He's cracked the top 30 in three of his last four PGA TOUR starts and closed out his week at the Wyndham Championship with a final-round 65 on Sunday. Another top-30 finish this week would seemingly assure Guthrie of continuing on in the Playoffs.
Tue, Aug 19, 2014 03:40:00 PM

Luke Guthrie spun a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to end his week at 9-under 271.

Guthrie circled four birdies and an eagle on his lap around Sedgefield CC, dropping just one bogey. Three of his birdies fell from between 13 and 19 feet, and his eagle was from 8'8" on the par-5 fifth. Though he hit just half of the 14 fairways, he landed a solid 13 GIR. He will now turn his attention to the FedExCup Playoffs, where he is safely inside the top 125.

Luke Guthrie will take his first peek at Sedgefield Country Club at this week's Wyndham Championship.

Guthrie doesn't have any course history to rely on, but his season form has been steady, posting a 16-for-24 record up to this point. His game appears to be setup for an easy, par 70 course, as he ranks 41st in par 4 birdie or better percentage and 53rd in par breakers. That is exactly what the Illinois product will get this week, as Sedgefield CC is a par 70 that barely stretches out over 7,100 yards. Guthrie won't be a popular pick this week thanks to three missed cuts in his last five, but his season stats suggest this could be a nice week to climb on board.
