David Lingmerth opened the Wyndham Championship with a 3-under-par 32-35=67 to post the very early clubhouse lead.
The Swede went out in the first threesome off the first tee. He failed to save par all three times he missed a green in regulation, but he found six birdies to compensate. Four of them ranged outside 10 feet, the longest measuring 25'7" at the par-3 seventh hole. At last check, his strokes gained-putting clip sat north of 2.050. Lingmerth entered the week slotted 129th in the FedExCup standings, so, like many at Sedgefield Country Club's Donald Ross Course, he's playing for a spot in the Playoffs and for fully exempt status in 2014-15.

David Lingmerth fired a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Barracuda Championship, bagging 12 points in the process.

Lingmerth's seven birdies netted him 14 points in the Modified Stableford scoring system, while his two bogeys cost him 2. Each of his three birdies on the front nine of Montrêux G&CC fell from between 11 and 20 feet, so the flat stick did its part. He heated up late, with birdies on four of his last six holes including a 25'1" chip-in on the par-4 15th. He will enter the final round with 28 points as he tries to secure his PGA TOUR card for 2014-15. The Swede entered the week 134th in the FedExCup standings.

David Lingmerth reached the halfway point of The Greenbrier Classic in 5-under-par 67-68=135 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

For starters, this will put an end to an 0-for-2 slide, so that goal is achieved. Lingmerth tied for ninth in his debut at The Old White TPC a year ago. He arrived for his return ranked 133rd in the FedExCup standings, so he can feel it. Overall, he's hit 26 greens in regulation and holed 10 birdies again five bogeys. After sinking three tries outside 10 feet on Thursday, including a 12-footer for bogey at the par-5 17th hole where he found water off the tee, the Swede's only notable conversion measured 11'7" for a walk-off birdie at the par-3 18th today.
Jul 4 - 6:36 PM

David Lingmerth returns to Congressional Country Club for his second Quicken Loans National.

The Swede posted a distant T54 in his rookie campaign last season. At 125th in the FedExCup standings he's suffering from a bit of a sophomore slump this time around. He's made the same number of cuts already (11) this season as he did all of last, but he hasn't been able to replace the two runner-up finishes. At 114th in driving distance, Congressional could be a little too long for him to tame on a consistent basis.

David Lingmerth carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to post the clubhouse lead at 7-under 273.

The Swede's wild round around Colonial Country Club featured seven birdies and three bogeys, with back-to-back bogeys at the 16th and 17th holes partially erased by a 12'10" birdie at the par-4 18th. Other highlights included a 16'8" birdie at the par-4 third and an 11'5" birdie at the 10th. He landed 13 GIR gained right at a stroke with his flat stick. The leaderboard is tightly bunched, but he stands an outside chance at nudging his way into a playoff.
May 25 - 3:51 PM

David Lingmerth was a surprise co-runner-up at THE PLAYERS in 2013 and is back for another crack this year.

While rookies generally don't enjoy success at TPC Sawgrass, Lingmerth's exception to the rule could be grounded in the fact that he regularly plays out of the course on his off weeks. While he's missed his last four cuts leading up to this event, he played very well on the Florida Swing, securing three paychecks in three tries. In that span was a season-best T8 at The Honda Classic.
May 6 - 7:49 AM

David Lingmerth posted a 4-under-apr 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, finishing with a share of the early clubhouse lead.

Lingmerth capitalized on 12 greens in regulation with an eagle-3 (from 18'1" at seventh hole) and six birdies, four of which from 10-17 feet. He also poured in a par save from 13'8" at 9 and signed his card with a strokes gained-putting clip north of 3.000. The Swede got up and down only three times, settling for two bogeys and a double, but the consolation is that this is his lowest lid-lifter in 14 starts this season. He has only one top 25.
Apr 24 - 1:21 PM

David Lingmerth begins his week at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans ranked 130th in the FedExCup standings.

The Swede was one of the biggest surprises of the 2013 rookie class, but he's failed to bring that sizzle to the table in the 2013-14 season. His lone top 25 was a T8 at The Honda Classic. Considering he missed the cut at TPC Louisiana last year, this may not be the best spot for him to break out of his slump. Of note, he was 40th in driving accuracy in 2013, but has slipped to 128th this season.
Apr 21 - 9:02 PM

David Lingmerth has been added to the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Lingmerth was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry when John Huh withdrew today. The Swede has quietly linked six paydays, including a T58 at last week's stop at Copperhead. The highlight of the stretch was a T8 at PGA National three weeks ago. He's currently 114th in the FedExCup standings. In his debut at Bay Hill last year, he tied for 50th.
Mar 17 - 2:05 PM

David Lingmerth battled for an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of The Honda Classic to finish his week at PGA National at 5-under 275.

The Swede tied for 29th at the Northern Trust Open in his last start, and has now topped that with a likely top-10 finish. He looked a mess early in his round, swallowing a double bogey at the par-5 third, but squared his round with birdies on the difficult par-4 sixth and par-4 ninth holes. It would be all pars coming to the clubhouse. Keep an eye on Lingmerth the next few weeks, as he's trending very well.
Mar 2 - 4:24 PM

David Lingmerth has battled his share of struggles during the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, but seems to be playing his best golf ahead of The Honda Classic.

The sophomore has yet to crack a top 25, but his T29 at Riviera in his last start goes down as his best of the season. After missing three of his first four cuts, he has now cashed in his last four. Lingmerth missed the cut at PGA National last year despite opening with a 1-under-par 69.
Feb 26 - 9:20 PM

David Lingmerth lost the 2013 Humana Challenge in a playoff to Brian Gay, that also included Charles Howell III.

Lingmerth's performance was a surprise, given it was just the second PGA TOUR start of his career. The 2013-14 season isn't off to a good start, as he's missed three of four cuts with a T64 at the no-cut CIMB Classic standing as his only payday. Last season, he had secured his card for the next season after the second start of the year. Things could start to feel a little more pressure packed this time around even though the season is still early.
Jan 15 - 9:28 PM

David Lingmerth wasn't among the more hearlded 2012 Tour graduates as a PGA TOUR rookie in 2013, but responded with two runner-up finishes and a ranking of 46th on the money list.

While his 2013-14 season is off to a slow start, if there's anything we've learned in the Swede's short career it is not to count him out. We should get a good feel for his form in January, since he tied for 31st at the 2013 Sony Open, then lost in a playoff at the Humana Challenge the very next week. Nabbing him in the top 50 of a full-season league may be a bit of a reach, but if he's around as the picks near 100 then jump all over him and cross your fingers that the sophomore slump doesn't find him.

David Lingmerth continues his sophomore PGA TOUR campaign at the CIMB Classic.

Perhaps not as heralded as rookies like Jordan Spieth and Russell Henley, the Swede managed three top 10s including a playoff loss at the Humana Challenge and a T2 at THE PLAYERS. He only secured 11 cuts in his 23 starts, but when he saw the weekend he knew what to do. Considering there isn’t a cut this week, it’s conceivable that he makes a move up the leaderboard since over half of his PGA TOUR paydays have resulted in top-25 finishes.

David Lingmerth withdrew during his second round of The Barclays.

It's not often that a golfer goes bogey-free for 17 holes, and then calls it quits. The rookie, who starts the FedExCup Playoffs slotted 45th in points, was 2-under-par with only the ninth hole to complete when darkness suspended the second round tonight. However, he opened with a 78, so he wasn't going to survive the cut anyway. As a result, we'll leave him off our Injury Report and look for him at next week's Deutsche Bank Championship.
