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.

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).
Aug 9 - 5:15 PM

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.
Aug 8 - 3:43 PM

David Lingmerth had to be content with an even-par 33-37=70 in his opening round at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

The Swede, who won at Memorial on his last visit to Ohio, mixed birdies at 12 and 16 with seven pars in an impressive first nine at Firestone CC and wiped out a bogey at 1 with a par breaker at 2 to remain on course to challenge for the clubhouse lead. However, after missing a series of birdie putts from inside 20 feet, he dropped a shot at 7 and missed from 4'8" at the last to register a walk-off bogey. Lingmerth, who split 7 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, is three behind early clubhouse leader Rickie Fowler.

David Lingmerth conjured up a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to conclude at 14-under 270, four shots back of champion Troy Merritt.

Lingmerth began the day at 12-under (T4) and two shots adrift of 54-hole leaders Troy Merritt and Kevin Chappell. With three birdies in his first five holes, the Swede tied the lead at 15-under (Merritt) circling the last of the three at the par-5 fifth. After pars on six and seven, he made a mess of the par-5 eighth, squaring bogey-6 to stall his momentum. Lingmerth bounced back with birdie at the par-3 11th, but squared back-to-back bogeys on 12 and 13 to fall off the pace. The 28-year-old carded his fifth and last birdie from eight feet at the par-5 14th, concluding his round with four consecutive 2-putt pars. He had an outside look from 27 feet at the last to post 15-under, but lipped the left edge of the cup. The Web.com Tour grad's consolation is a solo-third finish, his third top 10 on 23 starts, and he's projected to move to 23rd in the FedExCup standings. His previous best at the QLN (two starts) was a T54 in 2013.
Aug 2 - 7:10 PM

David Lingmerth rallied for a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National for a three-day aggregate of 12-under 201.

Lingmerth began Moving Day at 9-under (solo fourth) and two shots back of 36-hole leader Ryo Ishikawa. Playing in the penultimate pairing with Kevin Chappell, he missed premium scoring chances from inside nine feet at the first and second, before circling birdies at Nos. 5 and 7. The Swede would reach the break right where he started however, swallowing a double bogey-5 at the par-3 ninth after his tee shot found the water long and left. He bounced back with consecutive birdies on 10 and 11, and added two more at 14 and 17. Each of the 28-year-old's six conversions today came from inside nine feet. Lingmerth enjoyed his breakout victory on the PGA TOUR four starts ago in a playoff at the Memorial, where he entered the final round three shots back of the lead. He's two off the pace of co-leaders Troy Merritt and Chappell here in Gainesville, Virginia.
Aug 1 - 7:56 PM

David Lingmerth hung up a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of the Quicken Loans National to post 9-under 133, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He was able to go one lower than the 36-hole clubhouse quad-leaders thanks to a birdie try that fell from just inside 20 feet at the par-3 ninth hole where Lingmerth concluded today's trot around Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. He totaled seven birdies in all, including a pair ranging 10-18 feet. The Swede's only blemish occurred at the par-3 fourth where he three-putted from just outside 80 feet. That's quite fine given he went 7-for-7 in scrambling. At last check, the recent winner in Ohio ranked fifth in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate clip of 4.815.
Jul 31 - 1:16 PM

David Lingmerth preps for his third playing of the Quicken Loans National and enters the week 34th in the FedExCup standings.

Lingmerth turned 28 years of age on the 22nd of July and has posted two top 10s on his season of 22 starts, including a T6 at The Greenbrier Classic and his maiden PGA TOUR title in sudden death at the Memorial over Justin Rose, who happens to be defending this week. The Swede chased the P1 at the Memorial with a T64 at the Travelers Championship and followed the Greenbrier with a T74 at The Open Championship. Savvy gamers will recall however, that he opened the Old Course with a course-record-tying, 7-under-par 29 before falling back to earth with an inward 40. Lingmerth is 1-for-2 at the QLN with a T54 in 2013 and a MC (by seven strokes) in last year's edition.

David Lingmerth rounded off his third appearance at The Greenbrier Classic with a 2-under-par 32-36=68 to post 11-under 269, good for a seven-way tie for sixth place.

Lingmerth claimed his maiden PGA TOUR title (in 68th career start) at the Memorial two starts ago. After a T64 last week at the Travelers Championship, he was right back in the mix beginning the final day at 9-under (T9) and two back. Lingmerth exchanged one birdie at the par-4 first with one bogey at the par-3 third, prior to circling back-to-back birdies at five and six, both highlight reel material. The birdie at the fifth, the result of an approach shot from 129 yards to seven inches, and the circle at the sixth, the result of a 40'3" roll that disappeared into the cup. He missed two scoring chances at the Nos. 8 and 9, both from inside 12 feet. His putting woes weren't done. Lingmerth lipped-out back-to-back at 14, from 6'8" for birdie and at 15, from 4'5", the latter squared bogey. The 27-year-old concluded the week second in strokes gained: tee-to-green and a dismal 69th in strokes gained: putting. However, his T6-finish does best his T9 at the 2013 Greenbrier.
Jul 5 - 9:58 PM

David Lingmerth crafted a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-33=64 in today's third round of The Greenbrier Classic and his 54-hole aggregate of 9-under 201 has him two off the clubhouse lead of Jason Bohn.

The Swede circled four birdies at Nos. 1, 5, 7 and 16 and added an eagle on the par-5 12th. Lingmerth landed 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation en route to his second blemish-free round of the tournament (first-round 67). His birdie conversions all came from inside of nine feet, saving his highlight reel for the 12th, holing out a 25-yard bunker shot for the eagle-3.

Jul 4 - 1:37 PM

With par on the third playoff hole, David Lingmerth emerged with victory over Justin Rose at the 40th Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.

The duo matched 15-under-par 273 aggregates to force a playoff. After exchanging pars on the first two holes of sudden death, Lingmerth rolled in a 52-inch par putt on the decider to defeat the 2010 Memorial champion. The Swede began the day in a two-way tie for second at 12-under and three back of the leader Rose. The 27-year-old, playing in the penultimate group, opened birdie-bogey-birdie, concluding his outward half with six consecutive pars. He squared his second bogey on the 10th and looked like he might be out of contention, but responded with birdies on Nos. 11, 12 and 15 to get right back into the mix. Lingmerth landed 13 greens in regulation, including at the 18th, giving him a look for 16-under from 9'8", but it would slide by on the right. Twice a runner-up on the PGA TOUR, Lingmerth claims his first title in 68 career starts. He is now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship. He's also fully exempt on TOUR through 2017-18.

Overnight leader David Lingmerth bobbed and weaved to an even-par 35-37=72 in today's third round of the Memorial for a 54-hole aggregate of 12-under 204, three shots off the pace of Justin Rose.

Lingmerth began the third round at 12-under and held a one-shot advantage over Jason Dufner. He brushed in a 17'0" birdie on the par-4 first, before giving back two shots on back-to-back bogeys on the fifth and sixth. The Swede would emphatically answer back however, with an eagle-3 at the par-5 seventh, finding the bottom of the cup from 30 feet. Lingmerth squared his third bogey of the day on the 10th, and looked to be out of contention with a double bogey-6 on the 14th, a hole that included two pitch attempts to reach the surface from 24' right of the target, and then a missed five-footer for bogey. The 27-year-old, runner-up twice on the PGA TOUR in 2013, steadied himself by circling birdie on two of his last four to pull back to within three of the lead heading into the final round.

He also lost in a playoff at the Humana Challenge.
