David Lynn readies for his second start at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
Lynn finished a distant T53 in the no-cut event a year ago at Firestone CC. The Englishman is 190th in the FedExCup standings and in clear danger of failing to retain his PGA TOUR card. It would take a stellar effort over the next few weeks to crack the top 125 for inclusion into the FEC Playoffs and to punch a 2014-15 ticket. His last payday in the U.S. was a first-round loss in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Tue, Jul 29, 2014 09:57:00 PM

David Lynn is scheduled to compete at this week's BMW PGA Championship.

Lynn has been mysteriously absent from the game since missing the cut at the Masters. It was his fourth straight MC dating back to The Honda Classic. He was the only no-show at THE PLAYERS without an attributable reason. When asked on Twitter on May 9 about why he's not competing, Lynn replied, "Just taking some time out." That's fair, but to take a pass on the PGA TOUR's flagship event, not to mention its most lucrative, was questionable. He took a similar break from the TOUR a year ago, but it was to focus on a European Tour-centric schedule. The Englishman is 6-for-10 on the PGA TOUR this season, but he's just 178th in FedExCup points. Suffice it to say that he's still learning how to juggle a transatlantic agenda.

David Lynn is not included in the published field of next week's PLAYERS.

The Brit qualified via the top 125 in FedExCup points last season; he finished 48th. In what was his first go-around with PGA TOUR membership, the highlight was a playoff loss at the Wells Fargo Championship in which he is not competing this week. In fact, he hasn't pegged it anywhere since missing the cut at the Masters to extend his skid to 0-for-4 since a first-round knockout at the Match Play. Despite remaining relatively busy on Twitter, Lynn hasn't alluded to any injury or personal matter that's prevented him from competing, so we'll remain in the dark for now. However, at 173rd in FedExCup points, there's reason to be concerned.

David Lynn is back for his second crack at Augusta National at this week's Masters.

Lynn's career profile at major tournaments is very impressive, with 4-of-5 cuts made, including a runner-up finish at the 2012 PGA Championship. His lone appearance at Augusta National came last year when he got off to a hot start, firing a four-under-par 68 in round one, settling for a T46 when all was said and done. The Englishman is on the heels of three straight missed cuts but has had two weeks to regroup after his missed cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

David Lynn was a first-round loser in last year's World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, but is back for another crack at it this year.

The Englishman is the 13th seed in the Bobby Jones bracket and has a date with Brandt Snedeker in the first round. Lynn is on a bit of a dry spell of late, as his win at the Portugal Masters in October of 2013 represents his most recent top-20 finish. Fortunately for him, Snedeker isn't sporting his best form at the moment either. While Sneds has earned the right to be a favorite, this one could be tighter than most would think.

David Lynn spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68 on the North Course at Torrey Pines in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Lynn went 2-for-2 in scrambling and circled birdies at Nos. 18, 2, 4 and 9 en route to the very early clubhouse lead that has since gone by the boards. He opened with 67 at Torrey North last year en route to a share of 34th place.

David Lynn tied for 34th in his first Farmers Insurance Open last season, and returns for a second look at Torrey Pines this week.

This will be the Englishman's first PGA TOUR start of 2014, but his third start of the 2013-14 season. He took advantage of the spoils of his success to pay each of the no-cut events in Asia, sharing 64th and 39th in the CIMB Classic and WGC-HSBC Champions respectively. Given his class, he stands an excellent chance at sticking around for the weekend, but don't invest too much.

David Lynn played his first full PGA TOUR season in 2013, and returns as a fully-exempt member of the 2013-14 TOUR.

The Englishman has really elevated his status on the global stage following his runner-up to Rory McIlroy at the 2012 PGA Championship. Recently, he claimed the title at the Portugal Masters just two weeks before a T64 at the CIMB Classic and a T39 at the WGC-HSCB Champions. As it related to the PGA TOUR, the CIMB and HSBC were his only two start of the Fall Series. Many may remember that he took an extended break from the PGA TOUR in the middle of the summer to return to Europe, so continue to monitor his schedule as it relates to fantasy starts as the season progresses. At 44th in the Official World Golf Rankings, expect a high percentage of his TOUR starts to occur in loaded fields like majors and WGCs.

At 18-under-par 65-65-73-63=266, David Lynn emerged with a one-stroke victory at the Portugal Masters.

As the Englishman's aggregate suggests, this tournament was a shootout at Oceânico Victoria Golf Course in Algarve. Lynn was among seven golfers to share the lead after 18 holes; he was one of three to split the lead at the midpoint. Fellow countryman Paul Waring then slept on the outright lead entering today's finale, two clear of Scotland's Scott Jamieson, who matched the European Tour record with a 60 on Saturday. Lynn started the day six strokes in arrears, and then buried five birdies to make the turn in 5-under 30. After a bogey-5 at the 10th hole, he picked off four more birdies, ultimately clipping runner-up Justin Walters, who finished birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie-par for a final-round 66. Waring faded with a 71 to place T3, two shots back. This is just Lynn's second career title on his home circuit. His first came way back in 2004 (KLM Open). He started the week at 52nd in the Official World Golf Ranking, but he'll climb inside the top 35 when the next edition is released.

David Lynn turns his attention to Conway Farms Golf Club for the BMW Championship.

The Englishman finds himself in the 56th spot in the FedExCup standings. He's on a current run of alternating top-25 finishes with missed cuts. A T22 at the PGA Championship preceded a missed cut at the Wyndham Championship. He then put up a T19 at The Barclays before missing the cut at the Deutsche Bank Championship. By that logic, he's in line for at least a top-25 finish next week.

David Lynn posted a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of The Barclays to reach the 54-hole mark at 8-under 205.

You may remember that Lynn took a rather large sabbatical from the PGA TOUR in the heart of the season to return to his native Europe. The way the FedExCup Playoff standings are reshuffled, it may prove not to matter. He entered the Playoffs 54th in the standings but was projected 21st at the time he signed his card.

David Lynn carded a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in his second round of The Barclays to reach the midpoint in 6-under 136, three strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Englishman enjoyed a strong front half of the season to position himself at 53rd in FedExCup points entering this week. After trading three birdies with three bogeys in his opener, today he rolled in an 18-footer for eagle at the par-5 13th hole and seven birdies, the longest of which 11'5" at 6. His longest conversion was a par save from 21'7" at the par-4 ninth, his last hole of the round.

David Lynn is the last man into the field at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Once the RBC Canadian Open was plugged in -- champion Brandt Snedeker was already exempt into the field at Firestone -- the top 50 in the updated Official World Golf Ranking would qualify for the no-cut event in Akron, Ohio. Lynn didn't play anywhere this week, but he gained the necessary points to climb one spot to 50th and earn a berth. Assuming he accepts the invite, it will be his first tournament in the United States since THE PLAYERS. The field is now full at 74 (including Hunter Mahan).

David Lynn is set to compete in The Open Championship at Muirfield.

You may remember that Lynn decided to skip the U.S. Open at Merion in favor of some rest and relaxation in combination with a return to a European schedule following THE PLAYERS. He locked up his 2013-14 card with a runner-up the week before at Quail Hollow and announced at that time he wouldn't play in the U.S. again until the PGA Championship. He may be the European equivalent of players like Kenny Perry that would opt out of going across the pond in the other direction.

David Lynn fired a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of THE PLAYERS, improving to 8-under 208 for the tournament.

A week after his playoff loss to Derek Ernst at the Wells Fargo Championship, Lynn find himself in the hunt once again. He circled seven birdies to just three bogeys on his third lap around TPC Sawgrass, gaining over three strokes on the field with the flat stick for the round. Highlighting his round was a birdie from 46'9" on the par-4 sixth followed by a 24'3" birdie conversion on the very next hole. As we documented earlier this week, this will be his last U.S. tournament until the PGA Championship, so expect him to leave nothing in the bag in tomorrow's finale.
