The RSM Classic increased its field size this year to 156 from 132, which proves beneficial to players on conditional status such as Luke Guthrie.
Last season was Guthrie's third consecutive on the PGA TOUR and ended at No. 148 in FedExCup points, missing the Playoffs for the first time. He cashed 15 times on 27 starts with one top 10, a T7 at the Valspar Championship in mid-March. The 25-year-old went the Tour Finals' route and missed three cuts before a T10 at the Tour Championship. In his only other RSM appearance, he missed the cut by one in 2014 on rounds of 67-75. Guthrie opened 2015-16 in T10 ( Open), CUT (Shriners), and T33 two weeks ago at the Sanderson Farms. Nov 17 - 7:23 PM

Luke Guthrie has been added to the published field of this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

He's parlayed a sponsor exemption into the Open into a top-10 exemption into the new season's second stop. Guthrie has conditional status, so starts are rare at this time of the season. As a result, he has everything to gain and he's playing like it. In fact, his T10 at Silverado matched his finish at the Tour Championship. And all bets are off in Vegas -- sorry -- where he tied for fifth two years ago.

Luke Guthrie battled for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Open to wrap his fourth appearance at 11-under 277.

After qualifying for the postseason in his first two seasons on the PGA TOUR, Guthrie finished 148th in the FedExCup standings last season to lose his card. Playing this week on conditional status, Guthrie began Sunday's play at 9-under (T17) and five off the pace. However, he was only three adrift of the overnight top 10. On his round, he found the fairway just six (of 14) times for a second consecutive day, but mustered 15 greens in regulation, matching yesterday's total as well. After circling seven on the card on Saturday, the 25-year-old managed only four today on a tricky day for scoring, but were enough to outpace his two bogeys and bump him up seven places to a T10. Among his split, were clutch birdie putts from 6'0" at the par-5 16th and from 15'5" at the par-4 17th. The top-10 finish gives him the option to accept an exemption into this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Tour Finals kick off this week at the Hotel Fitness Championship and Luke Guthrie tests the waters for the first time in an attempt to regain status on the PGA TOUR.

After qualifying for the FedExCup Playoffs in his first two years on TOUR, Guthrie didn't make the grade this season finishing 148th in the FEC standings. On 27 starts, he made 15 cuts posting just one top 10 (T7, Valspar Championship). The 25-year-old ranked outside the top 125 in FEC points following 24 of his 27 events on the season. He missed three cuts in his last four starts and concluded the regular season with a T56 at the Wyndham Championship.
Sep 9 - 1:32 AM

Luke Guthrie embarks on his maiden voyage of Montrêux Golf and Country Club at this week's Barracuda Championship.

Guthrie made the FedExCup Playoffs in his first two years on the PGA TOUR but staggers into Reno, Nevada, 139th in the FEC standings. The 25-year-old is 14-for-25 on the season with three top 25s, the latest coming as a T14 at the John Deere Classic in his home state of Illinois. He chased the Deere with missed cuts at the RBC Canadian Open and at last week's Quicken Loans National. His season best is T7 at the Valspar Championship. Guthrie ranks 73rd on TOUR in birdie average (3.68) and 128th in eagle (holes per).
Aug 4 - 9:31 PM

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.
