Past champ and World No. 231 David Lingmerth twirled a 6-under-par 30-36=66 in the third round of the Memorial Tournament for a three-day total of 8-under 208, up 42 spots to T10 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With R3 completed, Lingmerth is T11, six adrift of leader Bryson DeChambeau.
After opening with 69-73, the 30-year-old is now 6-for-6 at Muirfield Village with two prior top 25s, including a T15 last year, and one top 10, his maiden (and lone) TOUR title in 2015 (playoff). He checked in this week off four straight missed cuts and 175th in the FedExCup standings with nine cashes in 16 starts and one top 25, a T17 at the RSM last fall. On 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, the Arkansas product was 7-under thru eight holes, circling seven birdies, including five straight at holes 4-8. He stalled out from there, playing his final 10 holes in 1-over, outpacing an eighth and final birdie at 14 with back-to-back bogey-5s at 9 and 10. The Swede's split included three from between 13 and 23 feet, posting 1.538 putts per GIR and 3.386 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. Jun 2 - 4:56 PM

David Lingmerth will team up with Danny Lee this week at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Lingmerth is 9-for-12 on the season but weekends have not been his friend. In fact, he's lost strokes to the field in six of his last eight starts, losing strokes on approach in six straight ShotLink events. It doesn't get any prettier when you look at his playing partner, Danny Lee. The Texan has lost strokes to the field in 10 of his last 11 starts. Both golfers have won as recent as 2015 which does give them a leg up on most of the field. However, their current form makes them a long shot to truly contend this week.

World No. 165 David Lingmerth is in Orlando for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational and arrives off a T64 at the Valspar and at 163rd in the FedExCup standings. UPDATE: Lingmerth finished T64 (of 77) on 2-over 290 (77-68-71-74).

The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident is mired in a months-long-slide, recording only one top-10 finish in his last 38 starts (T5, 2017 Quicken Loans). He's a one-time TOUR winner in 132 events, breaking through at the 2015 Memorial 65 starts ago. The 30-year-old is 5-for-5 at Bay Hill with one top 25, a T13 in 2015 three tries ago. He owns a 72.55 scoring average on the par-72 layout (20 rounds) and finished 72nd last year (last place) with rounds of 74-72-70-88, the 88 his career worst in 415 rounds on TOUR.

David Lingmerth heads to the CareerBuilder Challenge at La Quinta CC this week looking to build upon a strong showing last time out.

Lingmerth's last appearance in The RSM Classic resulted in a 17th-place showing, an improvement after he pulled out of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a mid-tourney WD. He checks into the event ranking 35th in scoring average (70.176) through nine rounds, and he is 58th in driving accuracy percentage (68.25) during the early part of the 2018 season. He is a nice sleeper at La Quinta since he has made the cut in each of his five previous appearances at the event, including two losses in a playoff in 2013 and again in 2016. Lingmerth has a lot of upside for not moderate investment.
Jan 17 - 5:15 AM

Four (of 57) stranded during the second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba on Friday --due to darkness-- did not return on Saturday afternoon to complete their respective rounds.

At press time, there is no information that any of these WD's were due to injury. Among the four was World No. 120 David Lingmerth, who was 1-over thru 15 holes, 2-over total, and was playing with the tournament leader on the course Patrick Rodgers (-11). With the projected cut line at 1-under 141, a trip-birdie finish for the Swede may have done the trick. Instead, this is his second mid-tourney WD in 126 career events, first since the 2013 Barclays during his rookie season. The other three WD: Andrew Landry: 4-over thru 11 holes, 2-over total; Zecheng Dou: 2-under thru 10 holes, 5-over total; Ernie Els: 3-over thru 14 holes, 6-over total.

David Lingmerth claimed a European Tour career best finish of T4 at the British Masters after a final round of 4-under-par 34-32=66 at Close House GC, good for a total of 14-under 266, six behind winner Paul Dunne.

The Swede torched the Lee Westwood Colt Course on Saturday with a 62 and whilst he couldn't match that on Sunday, he'll be pleased with his 66. He was slow from the blocks with a bogey at 2 and six pars, but he then ticked 8, 9 and 10 to change the perspective of his day. A couple more par breakers at 14 and 18 squeezed him into the top five and that career best in Europe. It also grants him the opportunity to push on and aim for a place in the top 65 that head to the DP World Tour Championship.

David Lingmerth is looking to smarten up his Race to Dubai ranking as he debuts in this week's British Masters on the Lee Westwood Colt Course at Close House GC in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The Swede has been a bit-part player on the European Tour in recent times as he chased (and now chases) a Ryder Cup spot. This season's six starts have got him to 137th on the Race to Dubai with T13 in Qatar, MC in Dubai and Scotland, then T20 last week in Portugal to sit alongside T21 in the U.S. Open and T63 in the PGA Championship. If that kind of hints that he'll make the cut and a nice finish, but not really figure in contention, his sole experience of golf in England add to that notion - he was T22 in the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.

David Lingmerth has played just one major in 2017, finishing T21 at the U.S. Open; he'll get the ball rolling again with a start at this week's PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina.

Despite never having cracked the top 10, the Swede has a quietly impressive record at this level. He's pegged it up in nine majors and made the top 25 in five of them. That run includes T22 (2016) and T12 (2015) in the last two editions of this tournament. As for course form, Lingmerth struggled on his first few looks at Quail Hollow, missing the cut from 2013-2015. But on his fourth visit, the 2015 Memorial winner posted T17. Lingmerth is down at 102 in the current FedExCup race after just one top 10 this season (T5 Quicken Loans) but he has shown admirable consistency with eight finishes of T27 or better in his last 10 starts.

David Lingmerth grinded out a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64 during round one of The Greenbrier Classic, staking an early share of the clubhouse lead as the morning wave nears a conclusion.

The Swede arrived on the heels of five straight top 30s, including last week's T5 where he led after each of the first three rounds at the Quicken Loans National. He also owns a strong track record at The Old White TPC (three top 20s in three tries). The trends were converging and the trends didn't lie. It wasn't easy, though, as Lingmerth lost 0.696 strokes approaching-the-green, leaning heavily on the short game. In fact, he walked off the course gaining 4.710 strokes putting after splashing home three putts from outside 18 feet in addition to a plethora of clutch par-savers (four from the 6-to-9 foot range). Lingmerth also sank a 24'10" birdie from the fringe to pad his strokes gained around-the-green numbers. There is no reason to expect a slowdown from the Swede, given his strong performance over the last two months.

First- second- and third-round leader David Lingmerth labored to a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National, dropping four places to a season-best T5 on 4-under 276, three adrift of a two-man playoff involving Charles Howell III and eventual champ Kyle Stanley.

After kicking off in 65-65-73, the World No. 99 began with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Daniel Summerhays, who shot 74. It was his second career 54-hole lead/co-lead (2013 PLAYERS), dropping to 0-for-2. The 29-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.214 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.454 tee-to-green and 2.100 on-the-green. He circled two birdie-3s at Nos. 8 and 14, both from inside of five feet, outbalanced by three bogey-5s and double bogey-6 at 11 (tee ball in the water). The Swede does manage a second top 5 at the QLN in four tries (3rd/2015), and his sixth top 25 of the season in 18 starts, first top 10, supplanting a previous-best T12 (DEAN & DELUCA).

First- and second-round leader and World No. 99 David Lingmerth patched together a 3-over-par 37-36=73 on Day 3 of the Quicken Loans National to post 7-under 203, good for a one-shot lead over Daniel Summerhays. UPDATE: This is Lingmerth's second 54-hole lead/co-lead in 119 career starts (2013 PLAYERS T1, finished T2).

After kicking off with twin 65s, the 29-year-old led by two over playing competitor Geoff Ogilvy and by four over Summerhays. He outbalanced two birdies at Nos. 4 and 14 , both from inside of five feet, with bogeys at 1, 10 and 17, and double bogey-6 at 4 (tee ball in the water). The Arkansas product conjured six (of 14) fairways and just nine greens in regulation, losing strokes in all strokes gained categories with the exception of 0.549 around-the-green. He posted 1.778 putts per GIR and -0.672 SG: Putting, needing 28 total putts. The Swede is vying for his second TOUR title in 119 career starts, joining the 2015 Memorial where he was the 36-hole leader by one, eventually prevailing in a two-man playoff.

Overnight leader and World No. 99 David Lingmerth smoothed a day-tying-low bogey-free 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the Quicken Loans National to post 10-under 130, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead by two over Geoff Ogilvy, who also shot 65. UPDATE: With play completed, Lingmerth leads by two over Ogilvy and had the only blemish-free round of the day.

After an opening 65, the 29-year-old led by one over six players. On 10 (of 14 ) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he gained 4.896 strokes tee-to-green, including 2.052 around-the-green. The University of Arkansas product circled five birdies at Nos. 2, 3, 5, 10 and 18, four conventional and adding a pitch-in 4 at the second from 14'10" away. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.664 SG: Putting, converting two scoring tries from between 18 and 25 feet. The Swede has one TOUR win in 118 career starts, claiming the 2015 Memorial where he was the 36-hole leader, which is his only other lead/co-lead thru 36 holes holes.

David Lingmerth bombarded TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm with a 5-under-par 34-31=65 during the opening round of the Quicken Loans National, claiming the title of clubhouse leader as play winds down for the day.

This week's venue has been completely overhauled since the PGA TOUR had last hosted an event here. However, the Tour used the course on two occasions and Lingmerth is one of the golfers to have notable course history from those events. The Swede won the 2012 Neediest Kids Championship and that knowledge appears to be paying dividends on day one. Lingmerth was brilliant off the tee today, striping 12 (of 14) fairways but really did the damage on the greens, gaining 2.745 strokes putting by round's end thanks to a trio of putts converted from outside 11 feet. On top of that, he also holed out from off the green (19'5") for birdie at the par-4 fourth hole. This will be Lingmerth's second career first-round lead on the PGA TOUR, with the first one coming just three starts ago at the Memorial Tournament (finishing T15 come Sunday).

World No. 101 David Lingmerth tossed up a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a 54-hole tally of 8-under 202, up 24 places on the live leaderboard to T3 and tying the clubhouse lead with C.T. Pan and Paul Casey. UPDATE: With play completed, Lingmerth is T4, four short of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

The 29-year-old is making his third appearance at TPC River Highlands with one previous cash, a T64 on last visit in 2015 (68-68-72-70). He arrived off three consecutive top-25 finishes, including a T21 at last week's U.S. Open. After kicking off in 67-70, the University of Arkansas product hit nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.151 strokes approaching-the-green and eked out a 0.431 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at the first (failed scramble), but then played his final 17 in blemish-free 6-under, circling holes 3, 5, 8, 10, 15 and 17, five from between 10 and 30 feet with a long of 29'1" at the par-4 third. The Swede posted a stellar 1.538 putts per GIR, 4.885 SG: Putting, needing just 26 total putts. He's won one TOUR event in 117 career events, the 2015 Memorial Tournament where he was the 36-hole leader and T2 thru 54 holes.

Overnight co-leader David Lingmerth slowed his pace in round two of the Memorial Tournament, settling for a 2-over-par 37-37=74, arriving at the weekend on 5-under 139.

Lingmerth posted poor ball-striking numbers in R1 by traditional metrics (7 fairways, 12 GIR) but today it was the strokes gained metrics that suffered. The Swede lost 1.469 strokes approaching-the-green, a 5.859 stroke difference, round-over-round. His putter also cooled off as he sank just one putt from outside six feet today. Lingmerth will try to erase this round from his memory bank as he enters the weekend inside the top 10.
