Brice Garnett is set to make his FedExCup Playoffs debut at The Barclays this week.
Garnett enters the week ranked 117th in the FedExCup standings, thanks to a 20-for-27 record on the season. He's earned top 45s in four of the past five events, but hasn't finished inside the top 30 since the Crowne Plaza Invitational at the end of May. Garnett is worth a look in weekly salary-cap formats as he's been a DFS-goldmine all season, continually priced toward the bottom, and continually making cut-after-cut. Aug 19 - 9:56 AM

Brice Garnett was out early in the third round of the Barracuda Championship and picked up 15 points for his troubles.

That gives Garnett a total of 23 points through 54 holes. As is the case in the Modified Stableford scoring system, he picked up 2 points for each of his six birdies, 5 points for his eagle at the par-5 13th from 2'4", and surrendered 1 point for each of his two bogeys. Three of those birdies fell from between 11 and 21 feet. While he was the clubhouse leader when he posted, this scoring format is so volatile that he probably won't even be inside the top 10 at round's end.
Aug 2 - 3:30 PM

Brice Garnett carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of The Greenbrier Classic.

Garnett has experienced a steady if not inspiring rookie season on the PGA TOUR. He arrived at The Old White TPC 16-for-22 with just one top 10 and one other top 25. Yet, at 113th in FedExCup points, he's very much in control of his destiny. Today's effort proved that he can find a comfort level as well, hitting 15 greens in regulation and pouring in five birdies. He even got to watch the fruits of his labor from afar as three of his par breakers disappeared from 22-26 feet. Garnett's lone blemish was a bogey-4 at the 15th hole. At 6-under 134, he's just three strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Jul 4 - 6:45 PM

Brice Garnett's rookie season is set to continue at the Quicken Loans National.

Garnett is growing quite comfortable in the early rounds of tournament play, ranking 23rd in scoring average before the cut. The problem is the weekend. He ranks 139th in third-round scoring and 122nd in the final round. In short, don't be surprised if he starts fast this week, or any other, and then fades when it counts.
Jun 25 - 10:02 PM

Brice Garnett has been added to the published field of this week's Memorial.

Garnett was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Jeff Overton withdrew. The rookie is enjoying a steady season with 15 paydays in 19 starts. While only two have gone for a top 25, he's 93rd in FedExCup points. Needless to say, he'll be making his debut at Muirfield Village.
May 27 - 11:03 AM

Brice Garnett suffered a 4-over-par 38-36=74 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and is now four off the lead with 18 to play at 3-under 207.

By every standard, this was setting up to be a learning experience for the rookie and that's exactly what it was. He'd never held a share of a 36-hole lead, so a bumpy road was certainly within the realm of possibility. He failed to circle a birdie, squaring two bogeys and a double bogey on his lap around Colonial CC. The good news is, a hot final round could still result in a victory. He is one of 36 players within four of the lead.
May 24 - 7:06 PM

Brice Garnett chased his opening 67 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 4-under-par 33-33=66 to post 7-under 133, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Garnett went out in the first threesome off the first tee this morning, so it's surprising that it held all day. He opened by rolling in an eagle from 17'5" at the par-5 first hole. The rookie then went 6-for-7 in scrambling with a bogey-5 at No. 3 and picked off three birdies, including a conversion from 15'6" at the par-5 11th. (He's played the pair of par 5s in 5-under this week.) A par save from the fringe four yards away at 17 retain momentum for a closing par and a shot at a career-changing weekend.
May 23 - 12:24 PM

Brice Garnett carded a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The PGA TOUR rookie went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee in today's late draw. He didn't waste any time in making noise, dropping in birdies on four of his first seven holes. The run featured conversions from 19'6" and 14'10" at Nos. 14 and 16, respectively. He also poured in a par save from 14'4" at the par-3 13th. Garnett picked off only one birdie after the turn (at the par-5 first), but he added his longest roll of the day at the par-4 fifth. After driving the ball well left of the fairway and being forced to punch out 50 yards short of the green in the rough, he'd eventually salvage par with a 31'5" try that disappeared. He walked off with a strokes gained-putting split just south of 3.700 and only one stroke off the clubhouse lead, but the afternoon wave is scoring considerably better, so Garnett will fade a bit once all of the scores are submitted.
May 22 - 6:03 PM

Brice Garnett enters this week's Wells Fargo Championship ranked 94th in the FedExCup standings.

It's a remarkably low FEC ranking for the rookie that has made 13-of-15 cuts on the season. The reason being that only two of the 13 paydays have been top-30 finishes. Garnett has been a dream for salary-cap gamers looking for a cheap option to collect four rounds of scoring, but his salary may be catching up to his performance by now.
Apr 30 - 10:03 AM

Brice Garnett spun a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Shell Houston Open, earning his first career PGA TOUR top 10 at 8-under 280.

The rookie picked up four birdies to just one bogey on his afternoon at Golf Club of Houston, landing 15 GIR and gaining just shy of two strokes with the flat stick. His previous best finish was a T19 at Pebble Beach, and he entered off a T31 at the Valero Texas Open last week. He's been one of the more consistent rookies, securing the cut in 11 of his 13 starts.
Apr 6 - 3:07 PM

Brice Garnett carded a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Not surprisingly, today marked the rookie's debut at the VTO, so the score is the twist. While he's 2-for-3 since the conclusion of the West Coast Swing, neither of those paydays went for a top 70. He hit 11 greens today and curled in five birdies, including conversions from 39'1" and 11'6" at the eighth and 16th holes, respectively. Garnett squared a three-putt bogey from 41'5" at the par-3 seventh hole and a double-bogey 6 at 10, but he walked off TPC San Antonio just two strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.
Mar 27 - 8:58 PM

Brice Garnett has gained entry into this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Garnett started the week as the sixth alternate, but he spells defending champion Tiger Woods, who withdrew today. The PGA TOUR rookie won't complain, of course, but that wasn't the case last week. After John Daly turned in a 90 in the second round at Copperhead, Garnett griped on Twitter that the TOUR and the event mishandled that sponsor exemption. He later deleted the tweet. Of course, that gripe occurred only after JD was taillights, so Garnett is still learning how to come to terms with voicing his displeasure. He's 9-for-10 this season but sits 120th in FedExCup points as he's cracked the top 35 just once. He's making his debut at Bay Hill.
Mar 18 - 5:45 PM

Brice Garnett is now the fourth alternate for this week's Valspar Championship.

Garnett is ninth in the reshuffle, but it wasn't high enough to retain a position in the field at Copperhead after five professionals posted top 10s for the automatic exemption.
Mar 10 - 11:33 AM

Brice Garnett posted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of The Honda Classic, finishing one off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

The rookie has been one of the quietest surprises this season. He's 94th in FedExCup points thanks to seven paydays in eight starts. He's been off since a career-best T19 at Pebble Beach, but the break didn't stunt his momentum. He split 10 (of 13) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation today, picking off six birdies to offset two bogeys. The par breakers included conventional conversions from 19'9" and 11'5" at the fourth and ninth holes, respectively, and he added a zero-putt nine-yarder at 11. Garnett also rolled in a par save from 10'7" at the par-4 first hole to set the tone for the round.
Feb 27 - 2:34 PM

Brice Garnett will come to realize that he's playing with the game's elite this week at The Honda Classic.

With many of the biggest names in the world, like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson in the field, the rookie's ability to stay in the moment will be tested. It's been a great season to date for Garnett, making seven of eight cuts with a T19 at Pebble Beach in his last start serving as the best result. He currently ranks 22nd in scoring average before the cut.
