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.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 6 - 10:14 AM

With a 4-under-par 33-35=68 on Friday, David Lingmerth moved to the top of the leaderboard after two rounds of the Australian PGA in Queensland

This is the Swede's first tournament as an affiliate member of the European Tour and he's on track to make it a winning start although the field is bunched behind him. At 3-under 141 he leads by a single shot from Mark Foster, first-round leader Zander Lombard, Peter Uihlein, Matthew Millar, Pablo Martin Benavides and Dylan Frittelli. Five other players are a further stroke back on 1-under 143. After trading two birdies and a bogey over the first six holes at Royal Pines, Lingmerth made his move around the turn with par breakers at 8, 9, 11 and 12. He gave one back at the tough par-4 17th. For the second day running, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation but he took five less putts than in his opening 73. The 28-year-old, who took victory at Memorial back in June, said later, "I know that I’ve won on the PGA TOUR so of course that gives me some confidence going into the weekend."

David Lingmerth has joined The European Tour as an affiliate Member and will get the chance to bank some early Ryder Cup and Race to Dubai points at this week's Australian PGA Championship.

The Swede has so far forged out a successful career on the PGA TOUR and captured the prestigious Memorial Tournament in Ohio last June. But he revealed at a press conference on Tuesday that he's keen to become a global golfer in the mould of Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose and try and make Europe's 2016 Ryder Cup team. "I’m hoping to get to play some more on the European Tour this year coming up and make myself eligible for the Ryder Cup. If I play good enough I’ll hopefully make the team; if not at least I gave it a good try," said Lingmerth. "Growing up, the Ryder Cup was definitely one of the highlights of the year that you would tune into. It’s a dream for a lot of us to play in that and win the Ryder Cup so I’m really looking forward to playing some more on the European Tour and giving it a good shot." Lingmerth will tee it up in Austra

David Lingmerth settled for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his final round of the CIMB Classic.

He rose into focus with a bogey-free 64 on Saturday, but hit only 11 greens in regulation in the finale and traded four birdies with two bogeys, including a 6 at the third hole. Lingmerth posted 16-under 272, good for a three-way share of 14th place. He'll start anew in his debut at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Thursday. In his only previous appearance in a WGC, the Swede tied for sixth at Firestone in early August.

Going out in the second threesome off the first hole in his third round of the CIMB Classic, David Lingmerth ripped off a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-33=64.

The Swede is making his season debut this week. He opened disappointingly with a 73, but chased it with an eight-birdie 65. Lingmerth kept the pedal down today with an eagle-2 to kick-start the day. After a par-4 at No. 2, he connected birdies at the third, fourth and fifth holes. Three birdies on the back, including a walk-off 4, added to the thrill. It was probably as low as he was going to go, too, given he missed half of the 14 fairways and went 6-for-6 in scrambling. Lingmerth signed his card at 14-under 202, good for early possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

David Lingmerth embarks on his fourth PGA TOUR season at this week's CIMB Classic in Malaysia.

In his 68th career start, Lingmerth won his first PGA TOUR title at the Memorial the first week of June in a playoff over Justin Rose. He chased with three top-six finishes over his next five starts and put the exclamation point on his run with a T12 at the PGA Championship, his personal best in four major appearances. With confidence, he entered his second FedExCup Playoffs and promptly fizzled out, going MC-MC and T49 (of 69) at the no-cut BMW Championship, but finished a career-best 37th in the final FEC standings. The 28-year-old has played in each of the CIMB's contested at the Kuala Lumpur G&CC, posting T64/2014 and T39 last season. He's broke par twice in the eight rounds and has an over-par scoring average of 72.50.

David Lingmerth smoothed a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in today's final round of the 97th PGA Championship to conclude his second PGA at 10-under 278.

Lingmerth began the day at 4-under (T30) and 11 back. He smothered one bogey at the par-3 seventh with seven circles on the card to conclude the week with 25 birdies, currently first in the field in that stat. After missing the cut in 2013 at Oak Hill, the Swede posted rounds of 67-70-75-66, currently T11 on the live leaderboard. His stats on Sunday show 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, registering a sparkling 2.292 in strokes gained: putting. His cumulative SGP of 10.149 ranks first in that category at last check. If he manages to crack the top 10, it'll be his third straight and fifth in his last seven starts, including his playoff win at the Memorial.

David Lingmerth authored a 2-under-par 37-33=70 to post 7-under 137 after two rounds of the PGA Championship, good enough for the new clubhouse lead.

The Swede had a wild ride around Whistling Straits on Friday, carding eight birdies, four bogeys, a double bogey and just five pars. He made serene progress early on with birdies at 1, 3 and 5 to pull two shots clear of the field on 8-under but went off the rails with a a double bogey-5 at 7 followed by dropped shots at 8 and 9. Four birdies against two bogeys from the 10th made it nine holes in a row without a par before he rounded off by draining a 35'5" putt at 18 to take the lead on his own. Lingmerth has been one of the hot players on the PGA Tour in recent months so this is a continuation of that impressive play although doing it at a major is new territory for the Memorial champion. Today he split 10 (of 14) fairways but hitting only 10 greens in regulation stopped him going lower.

David Lingmerth spun a 5-under-par 31-36=67 in today's opening round of the 97th PGA Championship.

While today's late draw was getting tested by Whistling Straits today, it didn't take but a peek at the leaderboard to learn that the morning wave enjoyed the better half of the wind today. Yet, the Swede managed to find 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation. He scored early, connecting for five birdies on his first seven holes, three of which ranging 12-16 feet. Lingmerth's only miscue occurred at the par-4 sixth where he squared a 5 and he's only one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

With a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, David Lingmerth posted 5-under 275, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

No, he won't win, but the Swede will record a top 10 in what is his first appearance in a WGC, and it's the fourth in his last six starts dating back to his breakthrough win at Memorial. He navigated Firestone Country Club's South Course like a veteran today, too, limiting his damage to one bogey among six scramble attempts. Elsewhere, he saved a par from 10'3" at the par-3 seventh and picked off three birdies, the longest measuring 29-and-a-half feet at the par-3 12th. Lingmerth will make the trip to Whistling Straits for his second appearance in the PGA Championship (MC, 2013, Oak Hill).

David Lingmerth hoisted a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to post 3-under 207, two strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Here he is again lurking on a leaderboard. Lingmerth followed his opening 70 at Firestone with a 1-over 71, but he cruised to today's score. He hit 14 greens in regulation and converted five birdies, including three straight on his inward nine. That spurt included rolls of 29'8" and 13'11" at the 13th and 14th holes, respectively. His only blemish was a bogey-5 at the eighth hole, but the Swede averted another when he poured in a par save from 10'3" at the par-4 sixth. Given how he rose to the occasion at Muirfield Village two months ago when he proclaimed that it wasn't his time to lose in the playoff, his repeatedly strong form since speaks to the extension of that confidence. He knows he belongs, he's proved it and he's eager to do it again.
