Local resident David Lingmerth led off THE PLAYERS Championship with a 3-under-par 37-32=69 to throw his name into the mix early on Thursday.
Lingmerth got his day started early (7:43 a.m. ET tee time) and wasted no time getting the scoring started. He splashed home an 11'8" birdie at his opening hole, the par-4 10th and followed that up with two more birdies from 11-to-12 feet. The Swede would make it a four-pack, with the fourth birdie coming from much shorter (4'3"). Lingmerth would slow his pace from there but still walked off the course gaining 3.405 strokes over the field with this 3-under 69. The Ponte Vedra Beach resident is no stranger to success here, finishing T2 in his 2013, although he's missed the cut in two return visits. May 11 - 2:57 PM

David Lingmerth and Danny Lee hung up a 10-under-par 31-31=62 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 10-under 134, up 35 places on the live leaderboard to T9 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with four other squads.

The international's tread water on Day 1 in alternate shot, silencing five birdies with three bogeys and double bogey-6 at eight. As would be expected (or should be), they were much better at four-ball on Friday, camouflaging a lone bogey-5 at 15 with nine birdies and eagle-3 at the seventh, the latter Lingmerth's only scoring contribution on the front nine (from 8'11"). Lee wrote down birdies at Nos. 2, 8 and 9 on his first nine, the latter from 32'4" at the par-3 ninth, adding birdies at 13 and 17, ending their scoring with a 27'2" birdie-2. Along with Lingmerth's 3 at the par-5 seventh, he circled 10, 11, 14 and 16, two from between nine and 10 feet, though he did miss a birdie try at the par-5 18th from 4'5".

World No. 93 David Lingmerth embarks on his third RBC Heritage and checks in at 167th in the FedExCup standings.

The Swede is down 25 places in the world ranking since the end of last year, indicative of his results. He's 5-for-9 on the season with zero top 25s and a best of T27 at the Valspar three starts ago (70-72-72-68). The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident chased with a made cut at Bay Hill, 70-72, but played the weekend in 72 and a career-worst 88 to finish 72nd (last place). He arrives off a missed cut at the Shell (by three) on rounds of 71-74. The 29-year-old is 1-for-2 at the RBC with a MC on debut in 2013 and T33 last year, where he was T7 thru 36 holes (67-71), but closed with 76-72.

David Lingmerth will debut in both the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and the European Tour's Desert Swing this week at Doha GC.

The Swede has always been based on the PGA Tour, but made an attempt last year to qualify for the European Ryder Cup team, taking up membership of the European Tour to do so. He played the minimum number of starts and that didn't include a trip to the Middle East for regular tour stops. Indeed he has always been very committed to the PGA Tour's East Coast Swing which takes place at the same time. But, in truth, the CareerBuilder Challenge aside (he has twice finished second in it) he has an average record in California. Perhaps he thinks the key is desert conditions and he'd be better off keeping to them (rather than hitting the Pacific coast)? Opened his year with T49 in the Sony Open then T34 last week in this year's CareerBuilder Challenge.

David Lingmerth will hope to extend his first year as a European Tour member in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Gary Player Country Club this week.

The Swedish 29-year-old took up membership in a doomed bid to make the European Ryder Cup team. Four regular Tour starts have seen him miss three cuts and finish T22 at the BMW PGA Championship. But an early summer sweet spot, which began at Wenworth, and also included top 25s in the U.S. Open and Bridgestone Invitational has helped him to 72nd in the Race to Dubai. That said, he'll need a decent check to bounce up into the top 60 who earn a spot in the Final Series finale in Dubai next week. And since finishing T11 in the Olympic Tournamen he has failed to finish better than T60 in six starts, with three missed weekends thrown in there, so the omens aren't great.

David Lingmerth ranks 65th on the FedExCup big board ahead of this week's BMW Championship.

In four seasons on TOUR, the Swede has cracked the FEC Playoffs three times now. He's yet to qualify for the TOUR Championship and he'll need a giant finish this week to change that. On the season he is 17-for-23 with eight top 25s. Statistically he ranks top 85 in strokes gained off-the-tee, approach-the-green, and putting while he's just 151st in strokes gained around-the-green. Without the distance to overpower Crooked Stick, Lingmerth will need to be striping fairways at an incredibly high rate if he wants to jump into contention.

David Lingmerth hopes the third time is the charm as he preps for TPC Boston at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Swede is 0-for-2 at TPC Boston and has never secured a cut made in either of the first two legs of the FedExCup Playoffs (0-for-3 at Barclays). It's not a fear of the bright lights because he's recorded four top 25s in eight major championship appearances. At 58th in the FedExCup race, a cut made would go a long way to secure his spot in next week's BMW Championship and help him toward the goal of earning his way to East Lake for the first time in his career. With top 25s in 28 of his 99 career PGA TOUR starts, the upside is there for the Swede, but gamers should be well aware of his poor track record at TPC Boston before pulling the trigger.

Sweden's David Lingmerth awoke to card a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the Men's Olympic Golf Competition to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 207, up 10 places on the live leaderboard to T4, six back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Justin Rose.

The 29-year-old began the third frame on 3-under (T14) after opening in 69-70. He went out in 1-over with eight pars and an opening bogey-6 on the first on a failed scramble. The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident circled four birdies on his inward half, playing his final 17 holes blemish-free. He birdied Nos. 10, 13, 14 and 18, two from inside of 11 feet, adding a 48-footer for birdie-2 at the 14th and walking-off with a 25'7" birdie at the par-5 18th.

David Lingmerth will fly the Swedish flag at the 31st Olympiad in Rio de Janeiro this week.

The two-time All American (whilst at the University of West Florida and then University of Arkansas) has enjoyed a solid summer of golf which has seen him make five top 30 finishes in strong events: at the BMW PGA Championship, the Memorial Tournament, the U.S. Open, the Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship. In that spell he has only failed when missing the cut at the Scottish Open and Open Championship. If that form represents the positives (bar the links golf problems), the negatives come when he plays the Olympic Golf Course designer's layouts. He shot 82-72 to miss the cut at Castle Stuart and on Gil Hanse's renovations he has a missed cut at Plainfield, two of them in two starts at TPC Boston and T49 in a limited field at Doral. Nor is he great on paspalum greens: MC-MC at El Camaleon in the OHL Classic and T64-T39-T14 at CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur.

David Lingmerth kicked off his week at the 98th PGA Championship with a 2-under-par 34-34=68, placing him three off the early pace set by Jimmy Walker.

The Swede didn't have his best stuff approaching the green but he was a magician around the greens today. Despite landing just eight greens in regulation, he swallowed just two bogeys. It all started with a 36'11" hole out from just off the green to secure his first birdie of the day at the par-4 third hole. After that, he converted three putts from outside 10 feet before the round was through. Lingmerth finished T12 at last year's PGA, held at Whistling Straits, and is off to another good start this week in Springfield, New Jersey.

David Lingmerth came up four strokes shy at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational after posting a 2-over-par 35-37=72 during the closing round, finishing the week T7 at 2-under 278.

The Swede struggled tee-to-green from the get-go, finding water on his first tee ball of the day. He split just four (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation. His putter tried to keep him in the mix, draining four putts from outside seven feet, including a 26-footer to save par at the par-5 16th hole. That was following his second water ball of the day. His poor ball-striking was too much to overcome as he lost 2.760 strokes tee-to-green. Despite the disappointing finale, Lingmerth now owns a T6 and T7 on his WGC-Bridgetstone resume, and gamers should jot down a note regarding his fondness of Firestone Country Club.

David Lingmerth pieced together a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to reach the three-quarter pole on 4-under 206, down one place to solo third, one shot shy of 54-hole co-leaders Scott Piercy and Jason Day.

The 28-year-old will be seeking his second PGA TOUR title on Sunday in his 96th career start and first since breaking through across the state at the 2015 Memorial. He began the third frame in solo second on 3-under, one swing back of 36-hole leader Day. Playing out of the final twosome, he mustered half (of 14) fairways and hit a week-best 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.750 putts per GIR. The Swede birdied Nos. 3, 6 and 11 the conventional way from between 10 and 24 feet, and used the flat stick from the fringe at the 13th to drop a 24-footer for birdie-3. He bogeyed holes 5, 8 and 16 on failed scrambles.

David Lingmerth bolted up the leaderboard during round two of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with a 3-under-par 31-36=67 to reach the weekend at 3-under 137, currently the leader in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Lingmerth is in second place, one back of 36-hole leader Jason Day.

The Swede split half of the potential 14 fairways today and landed just six greens in regulation. Despite the lackluster ball-striking, Lingmerth gained 5.064 strokes over the field today. The weapon of choice was the flat stick as he roped in three putts from outside 18 feet, the longest being a 26'5" birdie bomb at the par-4 ninth hole. He also holed out twice from just off the green, gaining 1.978 strokes around-the-green. Lingmerth finished T6 in his 2015 debut at Firestone Country Club, and now finds himself T2 on the live leaderboard. It's safe to say he likes this venue in Akron, Ohio.

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.

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.
