David Lingmerth enjoyed a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the U.S. Open in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, to wrap his second appearance on 3-over 283, up 22 spots on the live leaderboard to T15 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Lingmerth finished solo 12th and Jim Furyk posted the low round with 66.
The Swede finished T17 in his U.S. Open debut in 2013 at Merion GC so Pennsylvania has been good to him. His best finish in a major is T12 at the 2015 PGA Championship, so he could be around that mark by day's end. The 28-year-old split 11 (of 14) fairways, hit 13 greens in regulation and totaled 28 putts. He raced out with four birdies over his first five holes before back-to-back bogeys on holes 7 and 8 to turn 2-under. Lingmerth added birdie-3s at 10 and 15 before a walk-off bogey-5 at the last. For the week, he totaled 119 putts (1.65 avg.) and posted rounds of 72-69-75-67. Jun 19 - 5:01 PM

David Lingmerth returns to Muirfield Village GC to defend his title at the Memorial Tournament.

The Swede was the unlikely winner here last year as a 400/1 long shot in his third appearance. He led by one after opening in 67-65, and trailed by three after a third-round even-par 72. The 28-year-old shot 69 in the finale to catch 54-hole leader Justin Rose and then won his maiden TOUR title with par on the third hole of sudden death. He's 12-for-16 this season with P2 at the CareerBuilder a lone top 10 -- and has just one top-30 finish in 10 starts since. Of course, he wasn't exactly in-form last year either heading in, missing four of five cuts with his only cash a T33.

As he chases a Ryder Cup berth David Lingmerth makes his debut in England at the BMW PGA Championship on the West Course at Wentworth.

In starting the week ranked No. 50 in the world rankings Lingmerth has already claimed a victory sorts: a place in the British Open at Royal Troon in July. A useful little win, but in truth he has been hanging on to that spot since he was T2 at the CareerBuilder Challenge in January. Since then he has made 11 starts and claimed just one top 30, when T17 at the Wells Fargo Championship. He missed the cut in Ireland, but did make 75% of the greens in regulation (which would have ranked him 6th in field had he made the weekend and maintained the stats) but he struggled with the putter.

David Lingmerth authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to warp his fourth appearance on 2-under 286, up 35 places on the live leaderboard to T16.

Whatever Lingmerth's final position ends up being, it's a moral victory of such. He hadn't played more than 36 holes in each of his three previous visits to Quail Hollow and hadn't broken par. The Swede put three red numbers on the board this week posting rounds of 71-71-76 and today's four-birdie stroll. For the week, he totaled 14 birdies, eight bogeys and two double-bogeys, which came back-to-back on holes nine and 10 in R3. The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident heads home for his third PLAYERS. He missed the cut on last visit in 2014 but nearly won on debut in 2013. Having co-led thru 54 holes, he shot a 72 for a three-way T2, two back of champion Tiger Woods.
May 8 - 1:00 PM

David Lingmerth signed for an even-par 35-36=71 after the second round of the RBC Heritage to reach the midpoint on 4-under 138, down one spot on the live leaderboard to T4. UPDATE: With play completed for the day, Lingmerth is in a four-way T7, two back of 36-hole tri-leaders Kevin Chappell, Jason Day and Charley Hoffman.

The 28-year-old missed the cut in 2013 in his only other appearance and opened his second visit with a five-birdie one-bogey 67. His driving accuracy remained solid in round two, peppering 13 (of 14) fairways and thru 36 holes, currently leads the field in that category at 85.71 percent (24/28). The Swede digressed slightly to 11 greens in regulation (from 13), but dropped big time in strokes gained: putting from 2.778 to -1.225 at the time he signed his card. He erased three birdies with three bogeys but did end on a positive, walking-off with a birdie from 8'11" on the par-4 ninth, his final hole of the day.

David Lingmerth fired out of the gates with a 4-under-par 31-36=67 in the first round of the RBC Heritage, currently one stroke off the co-leaders.

The Swede wasted no time today, lighting up the scoreboard five times in the opening nine holes. Other than a 3'4" roll at the par-5 second, they all came from outside 13 feet. Overall, the five birdies totaled 94'3" of putts made. He calmed down on the back nine, trading eight pars with a lone bogey. The bogey came at the par-3 14th where he found a greenside bunker and missed on the 11'3" par-saving attempt. Lingmerth sits at T3 through day one and will remain a seriously contender if he can keep rolling in the putts like today.
Apr 14 - 6:16 PM

Sweden's David Lingmerth makes his Masters debut and has a Thursday tee time at 11:49 a.m. EDT with 1998 champ Mark O'Meara of the United States and amateur Paul Caplet of Costa Rica.

The 28-year-old qualified two ways but most importantly via his breakthrough win at the 2015 Memorial. He shot a Sunday 69 to overcome a three-stroke deficit and then defeated Justin Rose in a three-hole playoff. This is his fifth appearance in a major with a best of T12 at the 2015 PGA Championship. The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident sits 34th in the FedExCup standings primarily on the strength of a T15-T13-P2 run back in January with the playoff loss his only top 10 of the season on 12 starts. He chased that with T53-T49-T63 and most recently a Group Stage exit at the Match Play with an 0-2-1 record.
Apr 6 - 5:00 PM

David Lingmerth settled for a 1-over-par 36-35=71 during Friday's round to reach the 36-hole mark of the Honda Classic at 2-under 138.

The Swede struggled with the flat stick today, but dropped just four spots on the leaderboard. His highlights on the green included an 8-foot birdie roll on the par-3 15th and then a 6'4" birdie splash on the par-4 ninth as he was closing out his round. Remarkably, they were his only two putts made from outside six feet today. Through 36 holes, Lingmerth ranks fifth in the field in strokes gained:tee-to-green. He could really make a weekend charge if the putter comes around.

David Lingmerth won the battle with PGA National's Champion Course to submit a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the opening round of this week's Honda Classic, adding his name to the list of early co-leaders.

On a day where the wind was gusting up to 30 miles per hour, it's hard to imagine a bogey-free round out there, but Lingmerth was just one hole from accomplishing that feat. It was the par-4 14th hole that gave him fits. The Swede missed his approach shot left of the green and couldn't get his next shot any closer than 30 feet, settling for bogey. It was really a ball-striking clinic today from the Florida resident, as he rolled in just one putt from outside five feet. Lingmerth's strokes gained:tee-to-green read +6.003 as he walked off the 18th green.
Feb 25 - 1:14 PM

David Lingmerth looks to get back on track at this week's Honda Classic at PGA National where he's making his fourth consecutive appearance.

The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident is 0-for-2 since P2 at the CareerBuilder with five straight rounds of par-or-worse. The playoff loss is his only top 10 of the season on eight starts but does however, have three other top 25s. In 10 career rounds on PGA National's Champion Course (par 70), his scoring average is exactly 70.00. Since missing the cut in his 2012 tourney debut (69-74), seven of his last eight loops are par-or-better with five of those in red numbers posting T8/2014 and T25 last year. The Swede chased the T25 with T13 in his next start at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in his only two events last season in Florida and his Sunshine State form also shows a T2 at the 2013 PLAYERS.

Sweden's David Lingmerth painted a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 25-under 263, and then lost on the second hole of sudden death to 54-hole leader Jason Dufner.

The duo exchanged pars on the first playing of the par-4 18th in sudden death; Lingmerth's two-putt par was matched by Dufner's scrambling one-putt from 12 feet. On the second playing of the hole, Lingmerth put his approach (from the rough) off the rocks and into the water opening the door for Dufner, who won with 4. Playing in the penultimate threesome, he began Sunday's finale in solo fourth, five back of Dufner, thanks in large part to a career-tying low 62 in R3. The 28-year-old circled birdies at Nos. 2, 4 and 7 and added back-to-backs at 11 and 12 and 15 and 16, the latter four from between five and 12 feet, before barely missing a 20-footer at the last to win in regulation. His consolation is his third runner-up finish in 83 career starts. The Swede came from three back after 54 holes to beat Justin Rose in a playoff at the 2015 Memorial for his first TOUR title in his 68th start, and lost here in a playoff in his 2012 tourney debut.
Jan 24 - 8:34 PM

David Lingmerth twirled a bogey-free 10-under-par 32-30=62 on day three of the CareerBuilder Challenge for a 54-hole aggregate of 18-under 198, up 20 spots on the live leaderboard to solo fourth and five shots back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Jason Dufner.

Lingmerth lipped a would-be ninth birdie of the day at the par-4 ninth (his final hole) and settled for a career-tying best on TOUR in 85 rounds, which incidentally, he shot here in R4 of the 2013 edition. His 62 that day got him into a three-man playoff in his tourney debut, eventually losing to would-be-champ Brian Gay. The 28-year-old went off No. 10 tee at the Nicklaus Tournament Course and began the day on 8-under (T24), seven adrift of 36-hole leader Dufner. He circled eight on the card, including five straight on Nos. 14-18 and added an eagle-3 at the fourth. The Swede landed all 18 greens in regulation on Saturday and his 62 matched Kevin Na for low lap of the tournament thus far.
Jan 23 - 5:48 PM

David Lingmerth lit up Wailae Country Club with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in round one of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Paired with James Hahn and Stewart Cink, the Swede went off on the 10th tee and reached 3-under by the turn. The only drama was a 6'9" par-saver on the par-4 14th. Coming in, Lingmerth had nothing of notable length needed to keep his bogey-free round alive. He had his irons dialed in, hitting 16 greens in regulation, and this 5-under could have gone even lower if the putter would have shown up at all today.
Jan 14 - 10:45 PM

David Lingmerth fired a 7-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions for a 54-hole tally of 11-under 208, moving up 7 spots on the live leaderboard to T13.

After opening with a pair of 2-under 71s in his Kapalua debut, Lingmerth began Moving Day in solo 20th (4-under) and a distant 12 strokes back of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He striped 13 (of 15) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, beginning with bogey-5, but chasing with eight birdies and no dropped shots the rest of the way. The 28-year-old's set included six the conventional way with a long of 20'1" coming at the par-4 12th, and also added two pitch-in birdies at the par-3 second and 11th, respectively. He inexplicably three-putted the par-5 18th for par however, from a mere 23'3".
Jan 9 - 6:37 PM

David Lingmerth debuts with 13 others at the 32-man Hyundai Tournament of Champions and joins the exclusive winners-only field via his triumph at the Memorial Tournament back in early-June.

The transplanted Floridian had missed four of five cuts entering the Memorial and had yet to record a top 10 thru 18 starts in 2014-15, so his breakthrough playoff win at Muirfield Village in his 68th career start was unexpected. He chased with three top 10s over his next five but fizzled in the Playoffs with MC-MC-T49. The Swede's been off since a nine-way T9 (4-over 292) at the Australian PGA five weeks ago where the winning score was even-par. It was his first start as an affiliate member of the European Tour -- as he tries for a Ryder Cup spot -- and led by one outright on 3-under after 36 holes but closed in 75-76.
