Patrick Rodgers back-pedaled to an even-par 34-37=71 in the weather-delayed final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to post 11-under 273, down two places on his loop and into a seven-way tie for tenth place.
Restarts following interruptions in play work better for some than others. For Rodgers, it was clearly the latter. When play was suspended on Sunday, he left the course 3-under on his loop playing the par-3 15th. He returned on Monday to bogey the 15th and promptly doubled 16 following a wayward tee shot. Two up-and-down par saves on the final two holes would be sufficient to muster the T10-finish. After missing just 10 greens in regulation over his first 54 holes, he missed seven in the finale, including his last four. On the positive side, he finished T2 for the week in driving accuracy (45/56) and put up his second top 10 of the season and fourth top 25 in as many starts. Nov 16 - 1:29 PM

Patrick Rodgers chased his opening 67 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 5-under 33-33=66 in today's second round, reaching the midpoint in 9-under 133, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Rodgers is a quick learner even as a Stanford product. On a track where his length is neutralized, he's missed only five (of 28) fairways, so he's throttled back for the sake of success, but he's also totaled 30 greens in regulation. Today's set of 13 and 15, respectively, yielded six birdies to cover a lone bogey at the par-3 fourth hole.

Patrick Rodgers shot 4-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, settling two shots off the clubhouse lead.

He was the first from today's late draw to finish inside the top 10. The solid play isn't surprising given his talent and overall recent form, but the 23-year-old was on the rebound from a stinging 73 on Monday in Mississippi that left him grasping onto a T20. No such ill will today at El Camaleón where he sandwiched six birdies in between an opening bogey at the par-3 10th hole and a bogey-5 at No. 6. Rodgers set up the scoring with 15 greens in regulation.

Patrick Rodgers returned to the Country Club of Jackson this morning and polished off an 8-under-par 33-31=64 in his second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

It took a while, but the 23-year-old ran through the tape. Rodgers hit 16 greens in regulation and converted nine times for birdie. The set featured rolls of 10'10", 23 feet and 19'5" at Nos. 12, 17 and 2, respectively. At 10-under 134, he's five swings back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Roberto Castro. Rodgers has missed only five GIR thus far.
Nov 7 - 12:00 PM

Patrick Rodgers rallied to a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to conclude his second appearance at 11-under 273, currently T8 on the leaderboard.

Rodgers opened his first season as a TOUR member with a T6 at last week's where he shot four rounds of par-or-better. This week, he only broke par twice, but he book-ended an opening 65 with today's four-birdie, one-eagle effort that smothered a lone bogey at the par-3 fifth. His birdie-split included a nine-footer at the second, and coupled with the dropped shot at five, he made the turn even. Following the break, the 23-year-old kick-started his round with birdie from 20'5" at the par-4 11th and a two-putt birdie at the par-5 13th. He added another two-putt birdie at the drivable par-4 15th and then canned a 23-footer for eagle-3 at 16, his second eagle of the tourney. For the week, Rodgers is currently T16 with 18 birdies, but his two eagles have him T1 in that category. He's up 20 spots on the day and currently inside the top 10, quite the bounce from last year's MC on rounds of 73-68 in his event debut.

Patrick Rodgers hung up a 6-under-par 30-35=65 for his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and holds very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

TPC Summerlin is a racetrack, so it's unlikely that his number will hold coming out of the first threesome off the first tee this morning. He landed 13 greens in regulation and circled seven par breakers, including an eagle-3 at the ninth hole. His longest birdie dropped from the fringe 12 yards away at the par-4 fourth, but he also connected from 16'7" and 14'11" at Nos. 8 and 16, respectively. Rodgers dropped two shots with bogeys on his inward side, but he signed his card leading the field in strokes gained: putting. At last check, it measured 3.624. That clip was aided by a par save from 18'1" at the par-4 third hole.
Oct 22 - 2:39 PM

In his first career start as a PGA TOUR member, Patrick Rodgers authored a final-round, 2-under-par 34-36=70 to conclude his second appearance in the Open at 12-under 276, good for a four-way tie for sixth place.

Last season, Rodgers made 12 of 17 cuts on the PGA TOUR as a non-member, with two going for top 10s to earn Special Temporary Membership during the season and parlayed that into a top-125 finish in the FedExCup standings as a non-member to earn his TOUR privileges for the 2015-16 season. He also finished 24th on the Tour money list which included winning his first pro title in a playoff at the Colombia Championship in February. After opening in 68-69-69, Rodgers began the day at 10-under (T13) and four adrift. With several players ahead of him faltering, the 23-year-old moved up seven places on the board after today's four-birdie against two-bogey effort.
Oct 18 - 11:29 PM

At 7-under-par 68-69=137, Patrick Rodgers is just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead at the Open.

The product of nearby Stanford is fully exempt on the PGA TOUR this season. His non-member FedExCup points collected in 2014-15 would have positioned him inside the top 125 among members, so he doesn't have to worry about the reshuffle even though he also finished inside the top 25 on the Tour money list in 2015. Rodgers is the first in the wraparound era to turn that trick. Thus far at Silverado, he's totaled 29 greens in regulation and circled an eagle and 13 birdies. His eagle came courtesy of a 12-foot conversion at the par-5 18th hole on Thursday. Today's most impressive of seven birdies traveled 25'3" at the par-3 seventh hole. There's no limit to what he may accomplish in his career, so there's no reason not to invest early and often in the 23-year-old.
Oct 16 - 8:18 PM

Patrick Rodgers completed the regular season of the Tour ranked 24th on the money list, but will not be allowed to compete in the Tour Finals.

If that seems strange or even harsh, it's only because he's already fully exempt above the reshuffle on the PGA TOUR next season. See, Rodgers' non-member FedExCup points would have landed him inside the top 125 among non-members, so he knew that he was already golden before today's WinCo Foods Portland Open where he didn't compete. In the first two editions of the Tour Finals, fully exempt PGA TOUR members (which Rodgers already is) were allowed to play as a means to stay sharp, but a new provision prohibiting it was enacted this year. Meanwhile, only the top 75 in earnings on the circuit are still eligible for the Finals, so while 25 cards will still be distributed at the conclusion of the Tour Championship, only 49 golfers will be jostling for position in the opening reshuffle on the 2015-16 PGA TOUR.
Aug 31 - 12:09 AM

Patrick Rodgers carded 11 points in the final round of the Barracuda Championship to conclude his second appearance in the tournament at 46 points, one point shy of eventual champion J.J. Henry, who won in a playoff over Kyle Reifers.

The Special Temporary Member is not eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs unless he wins, and Rodgers almost did. His walk-off eagle from nine feet at the last wasn't enough in the end, but it was sufficient to net five points in the Modified Stableford format and solo third, his second top-three finish on his season of 16 starts. Rodgers began the day with 35 points (solo fifth) and six points adrift of Henry. He circled four birdies at Nos. 6, 8, 10 and 12, all from inside 12 feet, but also missed four scoring chances from nine feet and in. Rodgers squared bogeys on the fourth and the 16th after missing each green in regulation, two of five missed GIR on the day. The 23-year-old ended the week with 26 birdies, second in the tournament, and a cumulative 11.467 strokes gained: tee-to-green, also second in that category.
Aug 9 - 10:30 PM

Patrick Rodgers netted 14 points in today's third round of the Barracuda Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 35, six points back of the leader J.J. Henry.

Rodgers began the day in a seven-way tie for seventh with 21 points, five off the pace. He smothered two bogeys with eight birdies to climb to solo fifth entering Sunday's finale. The 23-year-old's split included six conversions from five feet or less, with a long of 13'9" coming at the par-4 sixth. His two dropped points came at the 11th and the 14th with the former a three-putt from 20 feet six inches. The Special Temporary Member is not eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs, unless he wins. Not out of the question for the Tour member, having won earlier in the season at that tour's Colombia Championship in a playoff. He also finished T2 at the Wells Fargo Championship in May, his only top 25 in 15 starts on the PGA TOUR season. Rodgers finished T39 at last year's Barracuda in his only other visit to date.
Aug 8 - 11:27 PM

Patrick Rodgers followed his 15-point opening round of the Barracuda Championship with six points in today's second round to post 21 at the midpoint, five back of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Rodgers illustrated the value of the Modified Stableford scoring system today. He squared three bogeys going out, including a pair of three-putts, and walked off the par-5 18th without the need to hole out because he accumulating seven strokes, two of which as a result of finding water. But elsewhere, he buried six birdies, a set sparked by a round-long 21-footer at the par-4 first hole.
Aug 7 - 9:15 PM

Patrick Rodgers opened the Barracuda Championship with 15 points and possesses outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

The rookie buried eight birdies and squared only one bogey at Montrêux today. At last check, he owns the longest drive of the day, a 380-yard poke at the par-5 18th hole where he birdied before making the turn with 10 points. He also leads the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 4.310. His longest conventional conversions disappeared for par from 29'2" at the par-3 16th hole, where he found the greenside rough off the tee, and for bogey from 18'3" at the par-3 seventh where he rinsed his tee ball. While a gifted talent, Rodgers is still chasing his second top 25 of the season. The drought has amplified the fluky nature of his T2 at Quail Hollow, but it won't be long before mere top 25s will be mildly disappointing. The sky is the limit for the 23-year-old from Stanford.
Aug 6 - 4:07 PM

Patrick Rodgers twirled a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National, finishing three strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

In the field of 120 on a sponsor exemption, the PGA TOUR rookie opened par-par, the latter falling from 12'7" at the par-4 second hole, before holing five consecutive birdies sparked by a look from 13'3" at the par-4 third. He squared his only bogey at the par-3 ninth, but bounced back with a round-long conversion from 15'7" at the par-4 10th. At last check, he ranked fourth in strokes gained: putting for the day at 3.235.
Jul 30 - 6:46 PM

Patrick Rodgers has crashed the field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Rodgers was given a sponsor exemption to compete. It'll be the 15th start of the season for the PGA TOUR rookie with Special Temporary Membership. He'd rank 122nd in the FedExCup standings among members. He's also 17th on the Tour money list. If he finishes inside the top 125 with non-member FedExCup points on the PGA TOUR and inside the top 25 in earnings on the Tour, Rodgers will be fully exempt via the format on the PGA TOUR next season and one less card will be available at the Tour Finals. If he achieves the double, he'll be the first since the new qualifying process was created. It's also relevant to add that all golfers who are already fully exempt for the following season on the PGA TOUR are no longer allowed to participate in the Tour Finals.
